What’s with the huge ads?
by Wthrbug4me on 2019/11/17 20:41
Why does an ad for “Frozen” start the initial page off and is at least twice as big as the daily/hourly forecast? Really irritating that I have to scroll down past that to see the weather...on a weather app.
A bit annoyed
by anessavay on 2019/11/17 20:08
All of a sudden, I started getting ads again on my app, and I assumed my "Remove Ads" subscription had expired. Turns out, it was purchased 11/27/18 and should NOT have expired on 11/18/19. I did a year of premium because the ads are super annoying, but I dislike being cheated out of 10 days worth of ad-free forecasts and weather...especially when the obnoxious ad was for Frozen 2, a movie I do not plan to watch and have zero interest in seeing. I do like the extended forecasts available with the premium, which is about the only reason I went that route instead of just "Remove ads" again. But this subscription model everyone is moving to for ad removal vs a one-time shot is getting old. Really fast.
Hate new format
by Sherry Teacher on 2019/11/17 19:54
Do you ever read your reviews ⁉️ Never works. Too small to see well. Why fix what’s not broken? The website does not load. Not very useful if it doesn’t load. I’m using an IPad. Plus, they never get it right. I’m sitting in bright sunshiny weather and they say it’s raining. Easier to just look out the window.
I Want the Old TWC App for IPad
by An137on978 on 2019/11/17 19:44
This app had improved from my prior 1 star rating up to pretty useful. However in the recent time (since iPadOS 13.2? or shortly before), it has totally reverted to being mostly useless. So, my earlier words are again appropriate: “I use my iPad horizontally, and the new app fails in horizontal mode. It takes much too long to scroll through the app, to find stuff. There‘s a real waste of space and design features.” The by-the-hour display used to be very useful, horizontally, showing around 24 hours worth of hourly predictions. Now, maybe 4 hours are viewable unless doing wasteful of time scrolling. Why does TWC (FOR iPAD) shoot itself in the foot so often? The display would seem a crude knock-off of the TWC for iPhone design, with the iPhone vertical orientation and iPhone ratio of height to width. Totally unsuited to even vertical iPad, much less my go-to horizontal orientation.
Update stinks
by Reklisammy on 2019/11/17 17:38
I accidentally updated the app. Why can’t you just leave well enough alone. I’m also now plagued with adds. Junk. Looking for new weather app
Opportunistic
by daoofphoenix on 2019/11/17 16:16
Dishonesty is quite a trend now. Paid for ad-free, now it’s subscription-based. I press “restore purchases”, big surprise, there is nothing to restore. Every other app allows you to be “grandfathered” in. Not this one. These news companies like to jack up their apps heavily with ads. That is why I don’t watch TV anymore and the “Weather Channel”.
Daily forecast
by casinophyco on 2019/11/17 16:11
Next day forecast should be more in-depth for days ahead. Should be able to see at least one whole week with revisions as needed🌈🥰
The ads!!!
by Historicalamers on 2019/11/17 16:02
The ads are so invasive!!!!! I really like this app. I have used it for years, and years, but the ads are huge!!! They take up literally half of the screen. Also, they pop up when you do anything. You scroll down, pop up, you tap on something, pop up. You need to do fix this, or your going to lose a very long time user. Which won’t bug me too much since your reliability has decreased in the past year or so.
Accuweather much better
by bigsmellyfeet on 2019/11/17 14:02
I’m sick of the ads and the upgrade page opening immediately instead of my weather. The upgrade doesn’t cost much but the extended hourly forecast is free/standard with accuweather. I’ve deleted weather channel app
Ads?!
by Rainey Day Lawn on 2019/11/17 13:59
Thanks for the 100 ads running while trying to search for the weather. And I love constant pop up asking me to upgrade. Your weather app is a joke
Getting worse
by kapart on 2019/11/17 12:46
Have been using this app for a very long time. I am in trucking business so I need to know weather. It’s been getting worse with every single update. I paid money for a paid version not to see the ads but who cares. Eat it customer. At least return me my 5$
Done
by wishme luck on 2019/11/17 12:05
Waited and did the last lastest update to see if anything was change, Now pop up adds and more pop up adds!! Deleting after writing this.. it’s such a shame because this was the only app that I used for my simple look at the weather. Now it’s a cluster topped with adds and more adds. So done!!! To the app writers, figure out what’s important!!!
Advertising
by AlittleOFeveryThing on 2019/11/17 10:02
I’ve used the weather channel app for years. I consider it to be the most accurate, and clearest information available. I’ve seen many forms of evolution in it. BUT! This latest version is so loaded with advertising that weather information is second to the ads. The main page is a giant advertisement with some weather information on top. The radar is now trying to SELL you the upgrade to see the lightning strikes (something that WAS free and I used heavily recently in previous version) Something you’re even lucky enough to get a full screen pop up bugging you to upgrade to the paid version. I’m very disappointed in being bombarded with ads, upsells, and struggling to just get my weather information I want.
App badges for Ads ruins experience
by mamacats2010 on 2019/11/17 07:26
I understand the need to make money on an app in order to maintain it which is presumably why they’ve gone gung ho with the ads. I was willing to put up with them, but I am about to to uninstall the app because app icon badging, which was once reserved for important weather notifications such as severe weather, now seems to be used when the app has a new ad. I’ve gone into the app three times beckoned by the red badge to see what severe weather I need to prepare for only to be slapped in the face with an ad and no severe weather alert. This is a gross misuse of notifications that completely erodes user trust. I do not believe ads should be the primary function of any app, but the Weather Channel has turned their app into just that. After many years as a loyal user, I am sadly in the market for a new weather app.
Ads after I pay for no ads
by iHATED-IT on 2019/11/17 06:34
I used to pay the monthly fee for no ads then guess what? I would get ads every when I logged in. I would have to “restore purchase” and after the fourth time I just canceled and deleted this app. Silly reason to lose customers.
no local or any current radar now
by no radar = no weather on 2019/11/16 22:41
lots of useless junk but at least it did a basic good job, now no current radar. for years that was my go to for weather coming my way and to plan ahead. no longer useful, going to delete.
This is best so far
by ajbmd on 2019/11/16 21:55
I have several apps on weather as none of them were perfect but this one gives me what I need...knows where I am to promptly give me local Weather ...really happy with it
Keeps getting worse.
by LoveandMercy69 on 2019/11/16 19:33
I used to pay for this app but new format is terrible and I refuse to pay for it. Now they constantly harass you to give them money.
Ads
by MikeW84cle on 2019/11/16 17:43
Ads have made the app frustrating to use. I deleted it and went to Accuweather
Incredibly Unstable
by Dvoland on 2019/11/16 17:23
Does this app have the data I want? Sure! But the level of instability is finally pushing me to find a different app. 1) Often, upon launch, I see a strange, darkened screenshot of my iPhone’s home screen within the weather app’s loading screen. My background image is missing, but my entire layout of applications is visible. Makes me question my privacy for sure. 2) Launching the app takes forever. Well... much longer than it should. If the app had been previously force closed, it takes a solid 30 seconds to get situated and show me any weather data upon launch. 3) Worse: If the app has NOT been force closed recently, the app still takes 30 seconds to launch... and then simply crashes. The speed/performance of my entire phone is then affected for up to a minute. We’re clearly dealing with some massive memory management and/or CPU usage bugs. This happens whenever I multitask between apps as well. If I manage to muster up the patience to successfully open the weather channel app the first time, I don’t dare to attempt multitasking. Leaving the app and coming back in any fashion leads to the 30-second crash and freeze as mentioned earlier. 4) Running the weather app seems to affect how other apps run. If the weather app is running (or trying to open), other apps on my phone sometimes suffer. I might lose progress or be forced to restart other apps as well. Again... it’s crazy (and alarming) that the weather channel app’s bugs seems to have this much of an impact on my phone overall. Anyway, I’ll be finding a new weather app until these issues are ironed out. I’ve been dealing with these bugs for about a year now, and it’s finally time to say goodbye. ✌️
Deleting once and for all
by tonimk on 2019/11/16 16:34
This app has gotten progressively worse with horrible layouts, not being user friendly, and now the maps do NOTHING unless you buy the paid version. Yeah, no thanks. There are definitely better, free apps out there and I’ll definitely be using them instead. Buh-bye weather channel!
Ads ruined this app
by Swiat34 on 2019/11/16 15:38
This used to be an excellent weather app and it does well at that still BUT now there’s an add that covers the entire screen at start up and there is more screen space dedicated to ads and “upgrade to premium” than to the weather info. I’ll be looking for a different app and go back to Apple Weather in the meantime.
Fix the app
by Thanatos4 on 2019/11/16 13:56
The radar is probably the best part of the map when it works. App crashes regularly at launch. I can’t tell you how many times I have been rained on with a “0%” chance of rain in the forecast. The new in your face “Premium” advertising is super annoying and has made me use the app less and less.
I don’t want to buy this app
by Bianco1 on 2019/11/16 13:54
Stop asking me if I want to up grade every time I open up the app.
Bloated Adware
by dataskatt on 2019/11/16 13:36
I am sick and tired of all the ads in this app. I understand the need for advertisers, but now I am greeted with a huge ad screen as soon as I open the app. And it won’t close!!! I want to see the weather. Not a big old ad or a plea for me to upgrade. Upgrade to what? More ads? The app has become unusable, and I am looking for a replacement today!
Worst App Ever
by a.n.g.r.y on 2019/11/16 13:07
Weather Channels new version is the worst! So slow loading that it will time out, so slow developing that it freezes, and the wait time just to get a temp is ridiculous. Might as well forget trying to scroll because that takes forever and a day and by the time the screen starts to scroll the weather your looking at has actually changed. Worst worst worst ever!
Paid for Premium and did not work
by SmithM12345678910 on 2019/11/16 11:59
6 weeks ago, I paid $9.99 to upgrade to Premium; it is still not working even though I was charged. I have tried to contact the app developers via email, the option listed. I have read their posted articles on their site, and tried to restore the app. None of this has been helpful. When you email them an issue, you get an automatic email stating they will contact you. I have not heard back anything. This has been frustrating to say the least!
ADS ADS ADS
by xqzmepleze on 2019/11/16 11:53
Use to like using the app and even got the ad free version when it was 3 bucks now you want to squeeze moe ?? Out us for 10 bucks may have to stave using other apps just to get the same info as TWC app and NOT PAY a ransom just to view weather without ads and nonsense news videos
#1 for a reason!
by GleefulSmith on 2019/11/16 02:52
I have always been a user of TWC’s app. They continue to improve the experience and the features. The new wind stream feature is super cool and on its own well worth the price of a premium subscription.
New is not always better
by valueman1957 on 2019/11/16 02:25
After all these years, I have decided to delete this app from my phone, seems like over the last couple of years every time they update it, it gets worse. Now it pesters you to upgrade to the paid version, but I cannot believe it would be any better, and they wouldn’t update it in to even worse territories, so not only will you not get my money, you will lose my revenue from the adds, since I will no longer be using your app So I guess after all these years, this is goodbye
Not my go-to app anymore
by OregonII on 2019/11/16 00:50
S used to be the best app for accurate info on my location and other locations to which I was traveling. Now it’s just a bunch of small boxes that are hard to navigate. Back to NOAA.
Works Great & More Accurate!
by F35panther on 2019/11/15 23:54
Use it in Western US & Texas, seems to be more accurate than others.
Complete Ripoff and waste of time
by Gtbuzzedofftoday on 2019/11/15 22:06
I purchased the $9.99 year free of ads version. Guess what? Half the time you open this junk it still has a ad to buy some other crap. You can’t rearrange the hole layout. I don’t have any care for a video section. You know what I want? Temps and forecast. I don’t want the pollen count. This is the worst app experience I have ever had. Whoever made this should fired and punctually shamed for such terrible crap.
The Blue Screen App
by Hooseahmagomewatsi on 2019/11/15 20:16
At what point are you going to fix the problem with the app starting up to a blue screen? Several updates have occurred but this problem still exists. Not much else to evaluate with just a blue screen. Also noticed when the app does start, a pop up of “lightning in the area, go Premium...” every time SNOW is in the forecast. It really surprises me that the Weather Channel could get this kind of forecast wrong consistently.
Ad Hell
by xsalientex on 2019/11/15 20:04
I’ve been using this app for years. It has become so inundated with ads that the user experience is ruined. If you want to see an ad every time you open the app and watch a 15 second ad to view a 30 second video then this app is for you. If you want to remove the ads you have to pay a hefty annual subscription.
Adds 🙄
by Ianfact on 2019/11/15 16:40
I liked this app earlier on in its previous versions before the updates ruined the interface. The most annoying part of the updated app for me lately has been the incessant ads. Every single time I open the app I am met with an ad I immediately need to close out before I can look at the weather. Thinking about moving to another weather app because I’m sick and tired of the constant advertising popping up every time I try to use it.
Many issues
by ibikeride2 on 2019/11/15 15:45
App does not load automatically - Must manually refresh the app. Today’s Details are not at the top. Too much scrolling. Have to pay for a subscription to get some basic features that are free in other apps. No time stamp when current conditions were obtained.

Went downhill
by JSpin95 on 2019/11/15 12:58
I don’t need a full page advertisement to buy the “premium” version of the app, especially when I already paid for “The Weather Channel Max” and used that until you guys deprecated it. I was fine with the free version after that up until this new annoyance. It’s the little things that matter, TWC.
Best weather app!!
by Sboroday on 2019/11/15 12:53
Best app I’ve ever used. I work outside so it’s awesome to have an app with accurate predictions!
Bait and switch inferior app
by LLRC on 2019/11/15 12:35
Paid for pro app years ago and they scrap that and move to this subscription model. Are you kidding? You can get this and more free elsewhere and it does not crash all the time like this one. I love how you could be in a dangerous weather situation and you go to this app to get important information and protect your life but only get prompted to pay $99 year. Thanks for nothing.
Sad and annoyed
by Kin33 on 2019/11/15 12:05
This used to be my favorite app but the new version took away features unless you buy the full version. And the message asking you to upgrade that appears constantly is annoying. I’m using a different weather app. I don’t want to say which one or they may buy and ruin it like they did with weather underground.
Gale warning all the time?
by BudmanMikeL on 2019/11/15 11:47
For about a week or more, when the app opens up, I continue to show a Gale Warning where I live. There is no real Gale Warning in my area so not sure why that is still showing. App also often takes a very long time to start up.
Bad to worse than ever
by kcwildfire on 2019/11/15 04:24
Back in the heyday of software, companies used to nickel and dime people for every new update, every new feature, etc. At least you were paying for additions. The weather channel app has been updating the free app to take features away. Like showing only 2 days of hourly weather with the upgrade to premium message if you want to see more. I am never going to pay for a weather app, never. The weather isn’t accurate anyway but yet you want us to pay for your computer generated scenarios. I’m going to find something else to replace it. Deleting this app from my phone, money grubbers.
Why change a good thing.
by jrcooter on 2019/11/15 02:22
My old iPad finally just quit so I bought another and when I loaded the Weather for iPad app I was so disappointed I loaded another weather app. I wish I could somehow get the oils one back.

Ripoff
by RR2004al2001!@#* on 2019/11/14 19:32
Here is why I give this a 1 star. When I paid for the pro version of the app I had cool things like tropical storms and lightening strikes near me. Now it’s telling me to go premium for that stuff. They keep trying to charge for things that used to be free. I’d go with another app for weather. I’m done with the weather channel.
To many ads
by djdrewrose on 2019/11/14 16:44
You have to watch a 30 second ad just to see the news and videos. Crazy
App review
by Missing Link 1924 on 2019/11/14 15:16
I love the accuracy of the rain forecast. I have told my friends about the app and will be very useful to them
Decent app but buying premium still gets you ads
by MeliKirk on 2019/11/14 15:08
When I first subscribed the ads went away but now they are back after only a couple of weeks. What’s with that? Will cancel that if it isn’t fixed
Annoying
by matt2386 on 2019/11/14 14:41
Had this app for awhile now. Only loads up half the time then I need to restart my phone when it doesn’t. They have ZERO ways to get ahold of them on there app about it to tell them about the fault. Then just want you money and don’t care what you get. If they really cared they would find a way to contact me or make one on the app!!! I’ll be back with another review and let you know if they care!
Premium
by meh14701 on 2019/11/14 11:33
I don’t get why all of a sudden now we have to pay to access things like wind stream, lightning strikes, etc. it used to all be free with the app. This used to be my favorite app to use.
Terrible Redesign
by Sciencetchr on 2019/11/14 10:23
Paid for weather channel max years ago to get rid of ads. They did away with that to make people pay monthly to eliminate ads. The latest redesign made the weather hard to see while the ads are huge. Time to delete.
Hard to see
by Joejoejoe65424763 on 2019/11/14 07:43
Colors do not have enough contrast. Very difficult to see. I recommend the WeatherNation app instead.
Thanks for nothing, IBM
by schwank on 2019/11/14 06:21
This used to be a go-to app for weather, but since IBM’s money grab, I am on the hunt for another weather source. The Weather Channel app used to be free with amazing, ad-driven content. I cannot tell you how many ads I watched or saw while using this app, but it was PLENTY! HOWEVER, since IBM’s purchase and subsequent move to limiting content for non-subscribers, I have started using this app less and less. I do not understand why IBM has to mess with a great thing and make it all about making more money than they already were. Honestly, just offering the weather content without all of the videos and nonsense would be cheaper in the long run and meet your consumer’s needs better. To summarize, bring back the old, simple, useful Weather Channel app without all the bells and whistles, and get rid of IBM’s money grabbing subscription crap.
Make ads look nicer on the app please!
by ChrispyT2 on 2019/11/14 04:55
Feature requests: Wind gusts!!! Pressure tendency! Add NWS warnings polygons to radar overlay Add current visibility / cloud cover to current conditions Forecast summary for the day or future describing changes in temperature or chance of precipitation, etc. Bring the app over to the Mac.
Ads ads AdS aDs

Nothing but ads and up sell now
by CadillacDoe on 2019/11/14 02:02
Used the app for years and it’s been great. Now you can’t open it without constantly trying to get sold a premium version. Then the ads have taken over the top of the screen once you navigate past that. Really hard to navigate around all the nonsense to quickly check weather.
Inaccurate
by Aimazing1126 on 2019/11/14 00:54
Radar is inaccurate. Many times I’ve been caught in the rain and the radar is showing clear skies. Forecast will say no rain while it’s pouring on my head. App now seems to be more concerned with ads and getting me to pay for a subscription than actually projecting accurate forecasts. I will be deleting the app.
App always closes
by Hollyreview19 on 2019/11/14 00:37
I love this app and have used it for years, but it always shuts down as soon as I open it. Then, will sometimes shut down again while I’m using it.

Accurate wearher forecasts but rhe app constantly crashes and I have to delete it and reinstall it at least once a week.
Works great, needs dark mode option
by mhold3 on 2019/11/13 14:04
The paid version has everything I need without the adds but needs a dark mode option.
STOP Asking me to go premium
by JdoggM on 2019/11/13 12:50
Premium is utterly garbage, 72 hourly forecast does nothing in CO, 30 mile lightning strikes are just unnecessary. Yet every time I log in to check the weather I get an ad to go premium. This needs to stop.
Crashes all the time
by Duggyc16 on 2019/11/13 12:12
This is the most frustrating weather app. It crashes every single time you open it. And then you have to open it again. I thought with all of the updates, this flaw would be fixed by now.
Ken Kane
by Hossnspike on 2019/11/13 10:55
Way too many adds prior to viewing their videos. I understand this is a revenue stream for them, but the same 30 second advertisement before each video... Please!
Used to like it....
by Ridge runner 1809 on 2019/11/13 07:07
Used to be a good source for the weather. Now it glitches in opening sometimes, has a super busy interface with too many small windows, and is more difficult to use. Some features have been reduced, like hours out, unless you buy the paid version. Too much “in the paid version, buy it today” notices.
Seriously???
by deesquared777 on 2019/11/13 06:12
You now have ads on the top of the home page between the current temp and the Today/Hourly/Daily info, and we now have to scroll to see the weather? Come on. Knock that crap off. Why did you start that? That’s not what we want, and you know it.
Loaded with ads and pop ups
by Jcd123wer on 2019/11/13 06:07
This app used to be great. Unfortunately the forecasts have become unreliable and the app riddled with ads.

by OldBugGuy on 2019/11/13 04:28
Horrible ... nonstop ads. I have never seen an app with so many Ads. Delete Delete Delete If you enjoy watching ads, this is the app for you! Nov 2019 .....minus one star. Even more ads than the last time I reviewed it!!!!
Broken app
by Adolfo Teran on 2019/11/13 04:27
The radar doesn’t work, It keeps sending me random alerts that are no where around me. This app is outrageous. Not only that, they want you today to get the full experience. This app is no good and should honestly be forgotten.
Premium version pressure lost me
by Tom1999654 on 2019/11/13 04:25
You lost me with pressure to buy premium version to see hourly forecast 2 days out. I won’t be seeing ANY of your ads anymore. Weather underground has me now.
Premium rip off
by Msandberg on 2019/11/13 04:20
Let me start with saying I love the weather channel app. So much so that I purchased the premium upgrade. Nothing changed whatsoever....and I still kept getting notices to upgrade to premium. My credit card was charged and no upgrade occurred. I reached out to the app developers 3 times through the lame email option. No response after a week. Requested a refund and have been told it’s going to be issued. Waste!
No Premium Upgrade
by Sadder but wiser user on 2019/11/13 03:17
November release of Weather Channel app still fails to fix the Premium Service bug. Paid for Premium Update, App won’t display the extra data. So received nothing for my money.
Perfect
by oholomuba on 2019/11/13 02:46
Perfect App!!
Buh Bye
by ShadyCharacterMark on 2019/11/13 02:14
Used to love this app but with each update the screen real estate devoted to useful information gets smaller and smaller. Plus, the hysterical “alerts” designed to bring you back to be exposed to more ads are annoying. I’m uninstalling this garbage and looking for something better, even if I have to resort to my local television forecast.
Stop it
by Meeeeeeeeeee112457 on 2019/11/13 01:35
Get rid of the screen asking me to get the premium version every time I open the app, or I’m switching to my local news channel’s weather app
update
by Dislike New App on 2019/11/13 01:21
AGAIN your last update is causing incorrect weather information in areas🤦🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️🤭🤔
App was great until IBM bought it
by Dysturbed on 2019/11/12 23:38
This app was top notch. Now it is a buggy mess and loaded with “new” features that were once free that you now have to pay an annual subscription for. Try a local news channel app or accuweather and get more for less.
Whazzup, Weather Channel
by digoldy on 2019/11/12 23:17
As we approach November of 2019 the Weather Channel is still showing flu stats from last year's influenza season. A poor performance from a premium weather service. And this was a key reason that I subscribed. When I contacted their support I received no response.👎🏽* * 11/12/19 Upgraded my rating to five stars now that Weather Channel has updated its app to include flu reports and predictions. It now offers everything I want and more.
Premium pop up
by LynMarie09 on 2019/11/12 23:14
Really tired of the premium pop up upon opening the app. It’s been long enough, I know it’s an option and if I wanted it, I’d get it. I will literally never PAY to get a weather forecast.
Great.

Restart required to fix widget
by H. Peabody on 2019/11/12 20:41
I’ve noticed that after every update, the units on the widget always revert back to the default imperial, while the app is set to my preferred metric. I always have to restart my phone to correct it.
Slow App
by Lky Jack on 2019/11/12 20:34
This is the slowy app I have ever been!
Slow load times. Too much stuff going on
by 488mag on 2019/11/12 20:31
App has gotten too complicated that it takes forever to load. I can get faster weather forecasts going to their website. Most of the features are of little value.
Over monetized
by NovaNoctis on 2019/11/12 20:11
This app was great for many years. Now it’s all adds if you don’t pay a monthly fee. Navigating around the adds is way to much trouble. Accuweather is a way better app now that the weather channel has over monetized this app. Sad but definitely can’t recommend this app any more. Maybe if enough people delete it like I did they will make it more usable again.
Don’t. Want. Premium.
by tommymaynard on 2019/11/12 19:27
If I keep getting nagged to get premium, I’m going to quit you. I promise. This would be a great time to invest in your weather app, Apple.
Weather app
by pazzzt1234321 on 2019/11/12 18:17
This worked well in the past but now it’s so bogged down with so many adds it hardly works for me
Lost functionality
by Mchlboy on 2019/11/12 17:52
So apparently they took away futurecast on radar. Useless now. Deleted. Going back to local station app.
Spam
by omg spam on 2019/11/12 17:43
Stop the pop up for me to BUY your weather app. I don’t need your solicitation to keep popping up. If I feel the need to buy a weather app which I never will I’ll let you know. In the meantime I don’t need the spam!
Dark mode.
by Sunthebun1 on 2019/11/12 17:12
Several weeks ago I wrote about dark mode and you responded that it was coming soon. I thought it would be here by now. How much longer do I have to wait until dark mode gets here? PS! Over the last couple updates you are repeating the same in what’s new. Don’t repeat them.
Keep it simple stupid

My favorite app
by Elksom on 2019/07/25 17:22
I used to rely on the standard Apple weather app that is pre-installed on the iPhone to receive all my forecast knowledge. I had been using it for years to check the weather and daily temp until one day my mother told me to check the radar... what radar? “The radar on the weather channel app,” she replied. As soon as I downloaded this app my life changed. View the radar when storms are coming, videos about current weather and environment news, warning and watch notifications for changes in weather... it’s amazing! Somehow your friends always think you’re smarter when you know the weather. Thanks, weather channel app, for always telling me when it’s going to rain, you’ve saved a few ruined bonfires! Plus it tells you what time down to the minute it will start raining... and it’s always pretty accurate! All in all, this app is pretty great. It’s like the weather app of my dreams I didn’t know was the weather app of my dreams until I had it. Through everything the app has always been there for me, telling me an accurate forecast and alerting me with weather notifications. Sometimes getting notifications from the weather channel app is even better than getting a text from my boyfriend. The weather channel app is easily my favorite app. Trusty, reliable, and always tells you the weather. No strings attached!
New Update Nonsense
by R50an on 2018/08/29 01:46
I don’t know why the weather channel felt the need to completely overhaul the layout and design of their app. The previous version, which I had used daily for the last handful of years, was by all accounts a perfect weather app. Generally speaking, the main reason to change the layout of an app is to make it more efficient for the user. Unfortunately, the final product of this new design has done the exact opposite. The “upgraded” version of this app is an absolute pain to navigate and offers almost no benefits for the user. The most striking change made to the app is undoubtedly the bright white background. It’s baffling that people still think the bright white screen is an upgrade. Several of my other most used apps over the years have gone with the white background and I have had to delete several of them as a result. Unfortunately, I will likely do the same for the weather channel app if they don’t change or at least offer an alternative to the white background. It is blinding to my precious eyes!
What happened
by Honey Moon Pie on 2019/10/15 18:38
I liked the fact that being older than dirt I could put this on my iPad and make things bigger so that I could see and read everything. I liked the setup except that as with all things meteorologists have a harder time knowing what is going to happen and make guesses as to times of stuff. GOd still has control on most things and weather seems to be changing in our world also. So old age is not the only things that change in life. Why everyone uses light gray writing on a white background and expect someone to be able to see it is idiotic at best. I know all of the younger generation may like new update but I personally liked the old one best. There may have been a few things to change but wish you would make so people had a choice. Older people seem to never get a choice any more. At least there are many more apps I can go to and pray to find one I like. Thanks for nothing but causing me more problems with computers which I am getting ever more aggravated with. Not all old people want so many changes in their later years. Every time I finally get used to something, you geniuses decide to change all around. Just getting used to phones and iPads and all their changes every other day is enough to drive someone crazy and I don’t need any help since as you get older people don’t give me credit for having a lot of common since anyway! Thanks at least for trying to please all the people in the world.
Disappointed
by IbuSaja on 2019/06/24 14:27
Updated Comments: The app has gone from bad to totally unusable. The “current location” feature gives me the weather and alerts for an area that is 20 miles away. This is particularly annoying and dangerous on severe weather days. Further I repeatedly get notifications about about what the weather will be like tomorrow in different area area that 20 miles away from where I live, in a completely different direction. To make matters worse, when I try and report the errors, the email address provided within the app come back with a delivery failure because it is invalid. After years of loving the Weather Channel on so many levels, and trusting them to keep me informed and safe, I am done. Wish I could give this app a negative star rating. This used to be a great app. Clean, concise, simple and accurate. However, all the “updates” and redesigns during the last year or so have turned it into one hot mess. It takes forever to load, crashes repeatedly, removes saved locations and settings with each update, and keeps sending me forecasts and alerts for cities where I do not live, have never been to and could care less about. I have sent these concerns to support several times and nothing is ever fixed or even addressed. It’s all about advertising and video features. I have used this app for years, yet am getting ready to delete it. I am so disappointed.
Money grab developers strike again
by Bsadle on 2019/06/09 12:58
Back a few years ago in the early days of the App Store, probably 8-10 years ago in fact, I purchased the ad free version of this app called Weather Channel Max. Good app, no ads and it worked well. Then about 2-3 years ago the app updated and said that this app will no longer be supported and that would be the final update. It stated the other version(the one with ads) would be the only version supported. I continued to use the app I paid for until it kept crashing after iOS updates and was pretty much forced to use the app with ads. Now I see you can go premium on this app and remove ads. That really ticks me off considering I had previously paid for the ad free version, only to have them snub it. I, at first, just thought they were only getting rid of max so they would force those who paid a one time fee for the ad free version back on the app that has ads. Not only was that true, but now, in hopes that people would forget(which I didn’t) they now offer a monthly subscription service to get rid of ads. This is a sad attempt at getting even more money from me. I will now be deleting the app and using another app instead. I’ve already given enough money to you all only to be asked for more. I’m really disappointed how greedy developers are becoming and all over an app that gives you mediocre weather reports.
Could be great app if it worked
by Havin'Fun-in-Louisiana on 2019/05/10 03:01
When it works I like the app. I like the changes and if it loads it is a useful tool. For me the videos and weather updates are very good. Not sure what the problem is, but for some reason and this seems to happen frequently — the app doesn’t load (spinning disk) or it just crashes and restarts and then back to spinning disk. So if it loads (might work for days and then not work for days) it is a good app. I have noticed the app works best in places with high speed internet. In a place outside or in a place that lacks high speed internet or great cell service, the app just won’t open quickly (maybe 5-10 mins to open). I have an iPhone X with the newest software and the newest version of the app, so I don’t think it is the phone. Anyway, if the stability can be improved and it can open quickly than it would be a great app. Update: I downloaded the new version and it worked ok for a week (I.e. seemed like an improvement) and then crash city and or the spinning wheel of Watson after that. Now it is useless again. Weather is such an important thing to know and I have no idea why the concept of an app that works is so hard. I stick by what I wrote above - when the app works, it is great, but for some reason it doesn’t work most of the time. Like others, I now use other apps that work all of the time.
New Update RUINED this app!
by Jr High Teach on 2018/08/30 16:35
UPDATED REVIEW: Another update to this app...and now it’s even worse!! The last update made a once great app bad; this update just completely decimated it. I’ll be deleting it because it’s now unusable. The layout is SO distracting that I can’t even focus on what I’m looking for - you know, the actual weather. Why so many lines everywhere?? It’s awful. Don’t know what they’re thinking with these updates, but whoever thinks these are improvements is an idiot and should be fired. Total trash app. So disappointing, as this has been my go to weather app for many years. ———————————————————— ORIGINAL REVIEW: I've never written a review before, but this latest app update compelled me to do so. The update has taken what was once my favorite weather app and turned it into a cluttered, ad-riddled, blurry mess. It now has 3 LARGE icons at the bottom of the screen for pollen, video & radar (with a moving ad below those 3 things) that offer no option to "hide." This effectively takes up a 1/4 of your viewing screen. Also, I've always liked their feature of being able to choose my background photo for the app screen. You can still do so, but your photo is now extremely blurry. I used to love this app, but the update has ruined it, so I will be deleting and searching for another unless they fix it ASAP!
Less useful since update 2018
by Frustrated former app user on 2018/10/13 21:14
I used this app multiple times per day in the past but since the 2018 update, I have hardly used it at all. The data is accurate. It is hard to find the info you need. They now have boxes on the screen with different info. The screen is so chopped up you can’t see enough of any one thing to figure out what it is. The previous version was better when current details were on the first screen and you could scroll down to whatever section you need. There was enough info on the screen to understand and you had the option to tap an arrow to get more detailed info if you wish. Now I see 2 or 3 words, then a box with an ad, then 4 or 5 words and then another ad. Nothing is obvious that you can tap to get more details. I hate tapping all over the screen to figure out what gives more details since the first screen is useless and there is nothing to indicate how to get details. Please revise back similar to the previous functionality which was efficient and obvious how to operate the app! I haven’t ever written a review before when an app changed, but this one is so bad it deserves a comment. The only reason that it gets 2 stars is because the data is accurate if you are ever able to get to it.
Does not deserve one star for this update
by Barometerbabe on 2018/09/08 18:40
GIVE US BACK THE OLD APP!!! This is no concise weather report. And: Bad background; bad graphics; bad set up. Too many ads, too many screen options. The best weather information is plain and simple (as this app used to be): current conditions, forecast, radar, and then the other options like future forecasts, air quality, etc. The Weather Channel has been my go-to for weather forecasts since it was on TV—with no commercials. (Who can remember back that far?!) My version of Direct TV does not offer The Weather Channel so I have been relying on my iPhone app; not any more. Either give me the option of having the old app back or do a major fix to the current mess. If not I will be deleting this app. There are plenty of weather apps out there so why go with something so inferior. ALSO VERY IMPORTANT TO ME (and others) IS BAROMETER INFO. IT CAN HAVE A MAJOR AFFECT ON HEALTH. Please add the barometer and don’t forget direction as well as numbers. I still have the old app on my tablet; using it when I am home. I just don’t get why Weather apps want to go too fancy. It is not what people want when they want weather. Save the fancy and extras for those wiling to pay for it, then you will not have to mess up a good, basic weather app. Hope you get the message from me and many others.
Way too much
by Walterwilson0315 on 2018/09/18 11:18
The new app is a very, very negative change. The old navigation was fine and did not need an overhaul because this is just a weather app. There’s WAY TOO MUCH extra stuff involved with this app, and I really don’t understand why these guys try so hard to make it entertaining. It’s literally just the weather, I’m not looking to be entertained and I doubt anyone else opens up the weather channel app like “oh boy it’s time to have a good time”. We just want to see a forecast and a radar and that’s it. The air pollution number also seems completely inaccurate because it’s different every time I open my app. Not to mention the recent discovery of a weather channel weatherman pretending to be pushed around by winds that just weren’t there. To the point where he’s babbling about the storm being in the middle of an intense surge or something like that, meanwhile a couple of pedestrians walk behind him wearing shorts and hoodies, not affected by the wind at all. Plus, he’s visibly fighting the wind in the opposite direction that it’s blowing. You can see plants blowing in the opposite direction of where he’s pushing. That being said, I feel like all the weather on here anymore is exaggerated because they think it’s entertaining to people. It’s really just a nuisance and the reason I’m getting a new weather app.
Why change it?
by Buckeye chris on 2018/09/04 12:28
I’m sorry but I dislike the new update. It has made the app a lot less user friendly. It’s difficult to navigate and to find specific information. I don’t understand why you think people would like this? We want simple and convenient. If you fixed the small font and color schemes that alone would help drastically. The important information is almost hidden now. For instance the current temperature is so small I need glasses to see it. Also there used to be an option to toggle the tropical storm and hurricane paths on/off now I can’t find that option anywhere. The issue is it covers the whole state days before the storm will arrive and I cannot see the radar. Then there’s the adds. Out of the 50 apps on my phone I do believe this app is the worst for adds. They’ve been creeping in and growing for years. Basically since the app I paid for didn’t work anymore and you went to a subscription app (which I should have received a refund for since I only had it for a year but I digress on that issue.) There is one add now even bigger then the radar! I’m not even getting started on the videos because everyone knows how bad they are, a 30 second add for a 20 second video speaks for itself.
Bad Update
by A disgruntled consumer99 on 2018/09/01 10:58
This used to be my favorite 5 star weather app. I love to track weather and preparing for my day each day by using the TWC app but that all changed with this new update. First of all I do not wear sunscreen and base my outfits on the uv index and that has now been removed. Next the app used to be easy to navigate and get all the relevant weather information for the day as well as some great videos that I would watch in the morning as I wake up, but now the app is confusing with too much going on. I understand in today’s world to stay relevant you need to make change but this change was not for the better, to confusing now and hard to find information. I feel bad for all the sponsors that would pay for spots in the videos because based on the way the videos are set up I bet less people will watch them, I know I no longer will. I hope that TWC can fix this app and make it more user friendly again with an easy to find uv index. I am not deleting the app yet but until it is changed I will no longer use the app and will start downloading new weather apps in hopes of finding a suitable daily replacement. I hope this does not fall on deaf ears, the TWC app was the best but not anymore. Thank you and have a great day.
Constant reminders to go premium when I already have and no accessibility support for Apple Watch.
by Mom24monsters on 2019/09/18 04:40
I think this app would be great if it worked for everybody on every device, but they seem to have left out those of us who use voiceover, who need to know what the weather is too. It’s not all about the sighted people! I’m trying to figure out why those of us who use voiceover should have to pay full price for premium when everything doesn’t work for us? Also, I’m getting really tired of the constant reminders to go premium, when I already have. I have to go and tell it that I want to go premium first, for it to tell me that I already am, before the stupid thing will go away until the next senseless time it pops up. Until these things are fixed, we shouldn’t be charged to use the app. There’s not a whole lot of premium quality to go in premium when you have a visual impairment and most of the stuff doesn’t work with voiceover, something that’s built into the iOS, and there’s no excuse for it to not work with it. Also, I’m trying to figure out why, if this app is included, even if it’s a dumbed down version of it, with iOS, does it have completely different forecasts? The temperatures don’t always match either.
Weather variety multiple locations
by master red fox on 2018/02/24 17:55
I have had this app for awhile and use it to not only get local weather but weather for various locations for my son's work travel as surprisingly conditions vary greatly within a 50 mile area which one needs to know if commuting. I get road conditions and various alerts ( rain, snow, lighting, etc) per area. All helpful. Last year because of the reports I got, I saved my son an unnecessary trip because of the weather report. I enjoy the various videos also. I am editing review because of the problems I have been having with the app which appears to be all over where this app is used. I contacted support and only got a service standard reply which is basically sent by a computer. I am highly disappointed that I can’t get the app to work anymore because it was very helpful when it worked. I am not sure if the malfunction is due to the updates on IOS which also requires apps to also update. Whatever the reason, there should be a way to correct problem with app especially when it effects all means of use on phones, tablets and computers.
Good overall but needs improvement
by HenryAppleuser123 on 2019/01/31 23:35
I use to enjoy the app and most importantly the interactive map. I really like it because not only can you read the weather, but you can also visualize it and I think that brings a new way of informing someone when looking at the weather. I think this is important because it could possibly help someone better understand what they are looking at and it also serves for educational purposes and that goes a long way when helping someone understand the intended message that trying to be sent. You never want any miscommunications. Anyway, I like the app overall but with the recent update, the layers of the interactive map now cover the whole screen and I find that kind of confusing and bothersome. For example, the temperature layer now covers the entire map instead of just the land masses. I’m my opinion, I think it was better before when it only covered the land masses and that applies for all the other layers like UV index etc. So if you can change it back to that, that would be great. Thank you for your time and keep up with the great work. Go weather channel.
Essential
by K Rae Reed on 2018/08/29 05:36
I’m a pilot so my life revolves around the weather. I don’t just look at the weather, I live IN the Weather. The professional meteorologists at the Weather Chanel give you the best you can get from the same raw sources available to me as a pilot. I check the Weather Chanel app more than any other app on my phone. They do an outstanding job explaining important concepts which give you the How And Why things work with the weather. I am a flight instructor and one of the first things I ask my new students is if they have the Weather Chanel app so they can track radar and see current weather unfold. I also assign for them to watch Weather Underground as much as possible. I learn something new from them every night. I admire every one of your on air meteorologists and kudos to the crew behind the scenes. There is someone behind the camera in the hurricane to thank. You give your all and have given your lives too. Thank you for all you do from a huge fan.
Give back favorite locations!
by carolinelynchminor on 2019/08/29 03:33
Below is my previous feedback comments! Here is the latest! So, I got the update. I went to the app settings. I tried to add features, but received the message that I must first add to my favorites!!! Good grief! There is no way to add favorites anymore! Remember.... Add to My Favorite????!!!!! It is definitely gone from the options!!!! Frustratingly ridiculous!!!! And, very maddening! Where did my favorite locations option go? Suddenly it was gone! I’ve been irritated over the many years I’ve used this app by all the unnecessary changes “the powers that be” have made! Now, I’m angry! You’ve taken away my ability to receive notifications and alerts from ola es where family and friends live! I suppose, “the powers that be”, are trying to force loyal users ito making a purchase! However, I cannot even find out what features a purchase includes, except for no ads! The ads aren’t that offensive or bothersome! Yes, they get annoying when it's the same ad over and over!!!! Taking away “my favorites” is low!!!! Disappointing doesn’t even begin to describe how manipulative “the powers that be” are to their loyal following! Plus, it’s obvious from reading reviews, they don’t listen to or care about the feedback! You had a great app at one time! Now, not so much!
If you’re a fan of conspiracy videos and anything BUT the weather
by Saturatesinger on 2019/06/28 23:15
This app, the meteorologists involved, and the channel have all gone steadily downhill in both the accuracy and presentation of their work. Want to know if it’s going to rain? Well, that’s fine, open the app, click on hourly, click the list, select the particular hour, and you’ve finally gotten yourself to a page that has a 2% chance of being correct about the weather at any given time. Rain predictions are always wildly off, temperatures are inaccurate, the future radar’s accuracy is nothing short of a joke, the app is overwhelmed by clickbait videos and hidden ads, and the “weather alerts” are both excessive and incorrect. Weather channel, you are NOT a nonprofit, you have one job (as Loki said “just the one!”) that you are PAID to do, and to be honest you don’t do it well at all. It is currently drizzling in my area, one minute ago the app claimed no rain, now the app says I have severe hail and thunderstorms in my area....nope, not at all correct. All these shortcomings, and still, now, you have the nerve to create a subscription service out of your features? Lost faith, going elsewhere, please find time in your lives to do your one job with at least the minimum standards of care or accuracy.
Catastrophe
by reallyisittaken??? on 2018/09/08 10:47
Hate the update and redesign. What a mess . . . The vast majority of the most recent reviews give this update one star, because you have to give at least one to write a review. I love weather and used to use this app many times a day. I updated this app over a week ago and still hate it. I have also installed several other new weather apps, to test and compare which I like best. Every other app I have installed, I like so much better. I’ve also read the Developer comments/responses, none of which are helpful. Most are condescending and assume that we are really trying to use this app in its new version. It makes me question who their testing group was. Actual users of the app? The Developers want a specific list of what is wrong. It would be best to start with the original format and list the major changes that were made to “improve” functionality and design and start there. Then they could add in the other detail information that was previously provided that is now missing. I believe they need to find a new group of users to test their product to give them honest feedback, as opposed to what they want to hear based on the roadmap for their design. By the way, even with thousands of reviews the rating of this app is dropping quickly . . .
very glitchy app
by lisanicoleiannarino4887 on 2019/10/19 20:40
while it’s informative and sometimes accurate, the app itself is a pain to use. it constantly crashes on open and needs restarted. it’s super slow. they constantly ask me to PAY FOR PREMIUM which is ludicrous. why would i pay for a weather forecast? it’s like you’ve designed the app to operate poorly to get people to pay for the premium. no thanks. they also share data and are one of the worst as far as surveillance of what you do online. the ads and videos that are interweaved throughout the forecast are also very problematic and cause freezes/slowdowns in the app. would be nice to just have my forecast in a cleaner interface that’s smoother to use and isn’t so glitchy. i’ve resorted to downloading other apps that are smoother in design and operation. UPDATE: developer asked that i update the app and then update my review. while the crashes have been reduced, the ads are still causing the app performance to be low. also, the update removed a feature that was useful, the “best time to be outside” feature under hourly forecast. I used this a lot to make sure i wasn’t walking my dog at the hottest time of day. it’s also still asking me to PAY for premium every time i open the app.
Notifications no longer work!

The Notifications NO LONGER WORK on this app!!! No matter how many times I try to enable them it doesn’t work, I just keep getting the “ERROR - Unable to change your alerts at this time. Please try again later.” I’m talking every single day for the last few MONTHS. And why did my notifications shut off in the first place? It’s important to me to get severe weather updates because I live in a tornado prone area, TWC used to be a source for this but isn’t anymore. And BTW, shouldn’t that be a PRIORITY for TWC? (I have contacted App support multiple times to no avail.) I used to love this app but not anymore. I hate the glaring white background to start with! How about something a little easier on the eyes? (Remember that a lot of folks open this app in the middle of the night because storms woke them up and they need to see if it’s severe.) The ads are ridiculous and beyond excessive. The videos will randomly start playing as you scroll to try to get to useful info. What’s with all the graphs? And format the 7-day forecast like you used to please! I like the way it shows up when it’s emailed to me and that’s how TWC used to do it on the app, why change that? Please fix this app. Please fix the notifications problem ASAP.
We want Weather and not Water; been reliable till the IBM
by fbfbbckdjsbfncjjvjdbfkvjc on 2019/06/07 14:24
When the Weather Company owned The Weather Channel the weather was much more reliable. This channel focused on weather and not water. It had people who cared not for money, but for the safety of people. They had people down on the scene of a wildfire or a hurricane or a tornado! Now the IBM is saying they care for people but do they really? The IBM splits its business for agriculture, water, and other things; it does not only focus on weather like the former weather channel does. Yes, it is important that people around the world get water, hence The Water Channel, but this is not a charity app it is a weather app. The name chance shows everyone that this is no longer a reliable app. The premium option backs me up. The most reliable sorce you can get it only 48 hours out. Anything behind that is something unreliable; something you are fake selling people to get there money. The wind could shift and change everything. 48 hours is the furthest most reliable source there is. Also why is it not giving me accurate alerts for rain, lightning, pollen, or anything? Oh look it started raining... where is my alert. And hmmmm the radar says that it’s not..... like I said we want Weather and not Water.
I liked the old App better!
by ArdenBailey on 2018/12/14 21:32
Ever since the update my weather channel app is super glitchy. When I go to watch videos I have to watch an ad before every single one(the same ad over and over), this was not true for the old app. Also, if I click on the video and the ad plays but I scroll down to make it picture in picture and still browse the other videos... if I’m not at the video I initially wanted to watch when the ad ends and the screen goes black, when I try to click on it to bring up full screen it doesn’t work. Then, I have to click on a different video and then go back and am forced to watch the ad again. Also, if I am watching a video and the video ends and I’m in full screen, it immediately starts playing an ad(the same one I watched before the video) and the icon to minimize full screen is completely missing. I have to exit my app and go all the way back in just to watch a new video. I used to be an avid Weather Channel user but not anymore... I hardly even used it for the weather I just liked the nature/science related videos, and I can’t even do that anymore.
Change Is Not Always Good...
by Lora K Kay on 2019/03/10 20:11
I have used The Weather Channel app since I got my first iPhone 4, over any other weather app, and I’m now deleting it from my phone. I have given the new interface a long trial and the “fixes” have not improved this awful design. The adds overtake the screen, the graph is useless and I can no longer find real weather information that I can use. Three out of ten slides on the “Weather Snapshot” are related to my area with little information. The other seven are ads, international stories or ads disguised as stories. AND... this is not a unique look. It looks just like a FB Story, which was not an improvement on FB either. In order to get a TRUE weather Snapshot, I have to scroll through 6 other slides, the first which is usually a sensationalized video, and the second which is a tiny radar map. The aspects which most affect me are not seen until the 3rd, 4th and 5th slide, which often stick when scrolling through and lead to an unintentional advertisement opening. All of the information used to be right at my fingertips with a simple scroll for allergies, air quality and other details pertinent to me. Goodbye, Weather Channel!
Widget glitching
by sgwilso4 on 2018/10/18 04:23
Since I have searched and searched and can't find a way to contact the weather channel, here's a review with my issues. Since the latest update my widget in the Notification Center hasn't been updating properly. It will continue to have a "current temperature" from sometime earlier in the day. Even if I click on it and open the app, the current temp will not change. Also, on the note of the widget, why in the world when you click on the current temperature does it take you to the "daily" view? Why doesn't it just take you to the home page of the current location's weather conditions? There is a button in the widget for radar, daily, and hourly - tapping on the current temp should take you to the main screen for your location. Love this app but it's frustrating to have something not working properly and have no way to contact the company about it. The feedback section is just questions and answers, but nowhere to actually submit feedback or submit your own question or issue.
Well it would be ok if it worked
by Rokair on 2019/10/18 11:55
I hated that my favorite weather application with all sorts of features, smartly updated often, and simply works very well had to stop using the data from the weather channel as an option since the weather channel decided to no longer sell it to other application makers. So I thought I would see what the official weather channel application is up to these days. The main application is a bit boring in how it presents data but it seems to work. The watch application which I care the most about has three very basic screens that make it a struggle to quickly see any weather data and the complications appear to not work at all. I created a new face to test and placed both a large and a small on there. The large shows the “The Weather” and two dashed lines. The small shows an umbrella and bother else. Ok, so I guess it just doesn’t work at all. At least before you got some of my money via the Carrot weather application’s developers but now you get nothing as you have not convinced me to instead pay for you application that doesn’t even seem to work. After all these years I thought maybe you would eventually get you act together but I see otherwise.
New update and coverage of Florence
by Roll out update on 2018/09/17 04:40
New update is weirdly busy and hard to read and this is coming from a weather junkie. I had a hard time figuring out what those squiggly lines were for and yep supposed to be for day night-why? And you have to scroll through so much crap just to get to radar. Don’t know why it’s so counterintuitive. Also the videos and news stories are awful in that they update and recycle old stories and claim them as new. On a side note Florence’s coverage has left something to be desired thought it was just me being cynical esp after the silliness of someone getting caught faking wind and botched job of explaining it. But it’s been really weirdly non informative at times. I always watch hurricane coverage and this one esp with fam in area and well yep had to go to internet and other channels to find out what was going on in other places in nc. Really it was interesting the first little while but really hype focused on one area and not even to give info more like watch this reporter be really not smart and walk on beach during high tide with it at his feet. And other silly thing like that and that’s the take away instead of weather. Maybe too much showmanship and not enough weather news.
Great app
by StormHeart501 on 2019/06/19 22:59
I like this app because it is easy to use and highly accurate, I would highly suggest it to any of my friends who believe their weather app give inaccurate information and or they don’t like the functionality of the app they are presently using. I don’t have any REAL complaints other than sometimes I have to completely close and reopen the app for it to update on the temperature at the moment, it’s not necessarily giving incorrect information, I mean it kind of is but all I have to do is close it and reopen it. So if you could possibly fix it so it updates like maybe every few minutes so that I hopefully won’t have to constantly have to close and reopen the app every time I use it I would highly appreciate it. <3 but other than that the app is amazing and I would NO DOUBTS request it to my friends, in fact I found out about this app through my mom. But anyhow that’s all for now, please do consider my suggestion ❤️❤️❤️
It was great, then terrible, then good, then terrible...
by happygodavid on 2018/03/10 14:25
The original WC app back in the day was pretty solid. I paid the $4 for the ad free version. That version of the app was, hands down, the best weather app that has ever existed in the App Store. Then WC decided to go to a subscription model (because, money). Heck no. The new app has improved since the overhaul as far as look goes, but here’s the kicker; there’s no consistency with what displays. It’s scroll, scroll, scroll to find what I want. I want 4 things. Daily weather, 10-day forecast, maps, and occasionally hour by hour weather. THAT. IS. IT. And I would pay $ for an app that did just that. (I have, and they’re all nowhere near as good as the aforementioned WC paid app.) Please, WC, give me the option to set up the order of the major sections of the app. Let me buy your ad-free app without forcing me to pay for a subscription. With the look of your current app, do that, and you will have made the best weather app that exists. Come on, developers; convince your corporate bosses that this is what people want and that it will benefit the WC brand in the long run, even if they don’t make a few extra bucks a year from a ridiculous subscription service.
New interface is TERRIBLE!
by Cogsworth1972 on 2019/06/06 17:14
UPDATE: I wish I could give this app zero stars. First, I already paid to remove ads, now I am seeing ads again and when I try to restore purchase it says “Nothing to Restore”. This is probably because they switched to an annual subscription model and screwed over all of us that already paid for the app. Even worse, they have now hiked the new “subscription” price from $3.99 to a “premium” $9.99 per year. Total rip-off! I guess those “clean water” donations have to come from somewhere. I have contacted support and so far nothing but crickets. What can I say that hundreds of reviews haven’t already said? The new interface is a failure on every level. At the very least please get rid of the useless “Your Daily Weather Snapshot” thing and put some useful data in that screen space. It’s truly annoying as the ridiculous indicator makes me feel compelled to open it and scroll through weather info that I can see elsewhere in the app, and dumb videos I have no interest in watching. It is by far the worst, most useless feature of the “new improved” design. Just throw in the towel guys, read the reviews, admit that no one likes it and bring back the old app!
Story
by Old Mtn Man on 2019/08/09 15:19
My Daughter was driving me home after having a heart cath among other test at Vanderbilt Medical Center. We were driving 300 miles through strong thunderstorms at a very slow speed. We were both having so much trouble seeing that we could not find a exit to get off then interstate. Finally we got lucky and i spotted one in time to get off. We filled the suv with gas plus ourselves with some hot cocoa and coffee. I checked my phone to try and track the storm. I noticed that you stated there was a 22 minute delay between the bands coming in. I told my daughter let’s wait 10 minutes then leave. Thanks to your app we were able to drive the other half at a normal speed. It would have been an extra 5 hrs at the speed we were traveling not counting the danger we were in with all the 18 wheelers flying by us. Plus I needed my heart meds that were at my home Thank You for saving us
Horrible “Improvements”= Form over substance
by YayaHB on 2018/09/28 12:40
Or “Don’t risk a facelift when you’re already pretty good looking!” I am a frequent traveler for work and pleasure and take two or more out of state trips a month. I also come from a family of Weather Channel junkies who love flying, nature, and various other pursuits that take us outside and out yonder. As such, I regularly use your app several times a week. You had a successful product and I enjoyed using it even when the forecast was way off. While I can understand trying to make the app faster, I can not understand why you would completely change a format that was previously easy to read, with it’s bold colors and strong lettering, to a color palate that is light, with barely visible lettering. Please remember most of us are looking at your app on our phones and we are often on the go... The fine grey print, light purple, and glaring white screen is almost unreadable. It borders on the ridiculous. Sadly, I will be looking for another weather app to replace yours. I will miss watching your videos (even though you play the same commercial over and over and over...), but the main purpose of your app is now lost. RIP
Really?
by CStrong4044 on 2019/10/22 22:13
Upon opening this app you’ll wait a good 20 seconds to get past the blue startup screen. From there it’ll load your last location before pulling your gps location, so you wait for it to load and it shows you an irrelevant earlier location. Then it pulls your gps location, it reloads, and shows you your current location weather. About 45 seconds after loading the app on a brand new device you will be able to access the weather. From there you better hope you don't pull downwards too far or you’ll refresh and start over! So after you’ve wasted a minute now you're provided with a pretty comprehensive review of the weather, with an interactive radar that is pretty nice and accurate compared to other apps (why I give 2 stars instead of 1). But wait, theres more! NOW THEY WANT YOU TO PAY FOR AN ADD FREE/FASTER/MORE ACCURATE VERSION?!?!?! Thats the solution to a buggy app huh? No wonder the app never works because it’s constantly generating the best location specific ad!!! Don’t waste your time with this garbage weather app that has become a cash grab for TWC. Currently looking for better weather apps.
Big Issue
by TomahawkD23 on 2018/08/29 23:49
I am currently have problems with the new app that I can’t turn on notifications to receive significant weather advisories, daily rain/snow events, and pollen notifications. In the old app all those notifications where on. But when the new app downloaded they turned off and now I can’t turn them one. I once I’ve selected the notifications I want and press done, a screen comes up saying select a location. I look under locations, it’s blank, nothing shows up. I go back to the home screen. My current location is showing. I try again turning back on the notifications, I still am not being allowed to to select a location or is that part of the app syncing to my location like the home screen did. In my settings I have my current location turned to always on, still nothing. I used to rely on these notifications because I live in tornado alley so I guess it’s a good thing I also have a weather radio too. The Weather Channel app is now useless to me. I guess I rely on my weather radio now to keep my family safe!
Stupid and also very inaccurate.
by Rev Jude on 2018/05/27 10:21
First reason I call it stupid is because they name the snowstorms. I don’t know who came up with that stupid idea but the weather channel but it’s the most stupidest idea I’ve ever heard of naming a snowstorm give me a break. Also the next you know they’re going to name tsunami‘s earthquakes and every time we get a thunderstorm they’re going to name it. Plus their forecasts are always in accurate for where I live. I depend on the weather I can’t expect them to tell me what it’s going to be like in my area. I find that the cable weather is way off also and I don’t trust him. I also use storm in weather underground including the weather channel itself and they are the most stupidest apps to have. They are also very inaccurate and I don’t trust him. I have decided to delete their apps on my phone. I like to rock storms and when I found out from this app including the others if they do have if you can’t track a storm. This app is garbage for anyone who loves the weather. Anything the weather Channel has offer is all garbage. They don’t track storms do you know Kim good forecast in for anyone that Sirius about protecting the weather don’t use this crap.
App update is disappointing to say the least!
by jenpilch13 on 2018/09/08 12:53
The new weather app update is disappointing. The font/graphics are hard to see because they are so light and fine. The graph is not necessary and makes looking at the weather confusing and too much stimuli all at once. Who need that graph any way? The background is now white instead of blue again making the graphics hard to see. I like looking at the hour by hour top to bottom like before and now it’s L-R. The 2 weathers for each day is too confusing at a glance. If I want details I like clicking and reading about that but at a glance it’s way too much information. I have so much more to say about it but I don’t have hours to write a review. I have been using it now for 3 weeks or so and have tried to get used to it but I just can’t. I don’t like it at all. It has been brought up by almost everyone I talk to who used the old one and no one likes the new update. Please please go back or improve this new design. I loved this app before now and used it all the time! Now I dread looking at the weather and get annoyed trying to navigate the new app. 😢😤😠😡☀️❄️☔️🌪🌥🌦🌨
Let’s go back in Time
by Johnnyz53 on 2019/07/23 12:15
I own a manufacturing business in the South. Since we work in a mostly open warehouse the weather is very important there was a time when y’all had sections of importance. Videos: At one time the primary videos offered were segments of weather throughout the country. i . e. Northeast, southeast, Midwest, Southwest, and Northwest. Now it’s a melange of Weather top story, then somewhat insignificant stories with background music and subtitles of stories not necessarily pertinent to U.S weather on a daily basis. It seems you have to forage through the pooo to get what your looking for. There was also monthly data that showed averages for one’s area and where we are compared to the average on a rolling average. That’s completely gone. Nowadays it’s the basic local facts and sensationalism. I’m afraid that you don’t know how to get it back. Lastly, I find it interesting that your posting a 4.6 average when the Lions share of comments are negative. Himmmm Math channel? Update; I had to correct my score. I originally gave it 2 Stars. Once it showed up it was 4 stars. Very interesting, maybe it answers my score question. So now I gave it a 1. If you see any more than 1 star? It wasn’t me.
Good enough
by Nikkig127 on 2019/06/25 20:00
The UI is good enough, but I find myself going to the default iPhone app or WeatherBug more often. There’s just too much on the main screen of this app. It’s very busy and difficult to find the essentials at a glance. Additionally, this app is useless for travel. You can definitely look up different locations from your home location. But, if you leave the app, not close, just leave and come back two seconds later, it resets you and you’re taken back to your home location. So, when planning/packing for a trip, you’re constantly taken away from the last location you were viewing and you have to go search it again, over and over. So, I just stopped using this app all together for travel. It’s literally useless without completely resetting your default location to the place to which you’re traveling. It should, at least, hold your last viewed location for an hour or two, maybe 24 hours. The forecast is usually accurate. So, that’s good. But I’m not reviewing the meteorologists. I’m reviewing the app.
TERRIBLE UPDATE!!!
by CLS_1980 on 2018/09/01 11:14
I tried to contact customer support before leaving this review. There is no way to do that so here it is. I have had this app on mi iPad and iPhone for years. It used to work beautifully. I even paid to have ads removed. Later on I discovered location issues within the widgets on both devices. Then my precise location was deleted in the search. Aside from those things all was well. Now we have been given a fancy new update. It looks beautiful if you can get the app to open?! Unfortunately, I don’t have all day. Most of the time I end up staring at a spinning circle on both devices until the end of time. If it weren’t for the widgets I wouldn’t know what the current weather is. I haven’t received one notification on either device?! Thank goodness for my local news app that sends me notifications as well as gives me my weather! As it stands I have no desire to pay again for ad removal in October. I’m finding this app time consuming and loathsome. If all the bugs aren’t worked out soon I’ll see no reason to keep it. It’s virtually unusable and if they don’t care I don’t care. PRESS & HOLD, TAP THE X, DELETE AND FIND SOMETHING THAT WORKS!
Soooo many inconsistencies....
by Mamacitaslg on 2018/04/01 12:31
For example: Currently, there’s a warning rolling across the top of opening page. It states that there’s a winter storm warning from midnight through tomorrow at 1pm for 3-5” of snow with up to 6” in some areas. When scrolling down and looking at the detailed daily report for tonight and then tomorrow, it states a less than 1” tonight, and tomorrow 1-3” snow possible. Hence, huge discrepancies and inconsistencies, often. Very annoying. I don’t care how pretty the app is, just make it as reliable as possible. This is carelessness. Also, on a side note.... The videos (of which I have chosen not to even read the titles of anymore and get sucked in to watching) are so hyper-sensationalized and almost always over-dramatic, are a waste of time watching. Unfortunately, this is the app I’ve been most familiar with, so have stuck with for years. I guess it’s better than not knowing what to possibly, maybe, sort of expect without it. Finally, why, when there are almost all 1-3-star ratings, is the app showing its a 4.6-star app??????
Was the best until upgraded
by BaronBookworm on 2018/09/10 01:55
The latest update is even worse than the last. Takes forever to open and half the time freezes. Wish they’d go back to the original. It was easy to use. I had really loved it. It always was the most accurate, but this latest update finally did me in. I’m moving on to another app. Previous review: I loved this app. Eventually all my friends and family started using it too as it’s accurate and the options are great. BUT... recent upgrade ruined the ease of use. On my iPad it’s still great (which is why I’m giving it 4 stars), but on iPhone it’s extremely slow to load and can no longer swipe to go to next city. Annoying and just not worth the hassle. I try to use my iPad or Alexa when I’m home. Ive been using it for many years so I hope next upgrade they go back to what worked best or I’ll need to find an alternative for my phone. AND... the amount of ads and “news” videos you have to scroll through are flat out ridiculous now. I don’t mind ads, but the majority of the page is no longer weather. Just because you have a huge following does not mean you have to get greedy.
Easier navigation needed
by Hm1014 on 2018/01/28 14:17
I wish it was a little easier to navigate and find the information I need quicker. The main thing I go to weather apps is to find out how the weather will be for the day and the week. For first time users easy navigation is the key to get them hooked. As time passes they will begin to explore all the neat tools you offer. It’s seems to me I see the day’s forecast and when I try to look for the week I’m bombarded by these crazy breakdown by the hour and pollen in the air , barometer pressures, and I have to scroll for what seems like a eternity to get out of all these crazy breakdowns for just ONE day! and frankly by that time I’m exausted!! And I leave the app. Accuweather on the other hand has tabs which I LOVE and easy to find at the top of the page. Makes it easy to access the information 90% of the population generally needs. Simple tabs and all the extra info is within those tabs as opposed to spread all over the page and having to scroll on and on to move on to the next thing.
Unreadable Now
by SexySweetie18 on 2018/10/09 14:59
I used to love the Weather Channel app. I could do without the ads, but I put up with them. At least the app offered easy to read information at a glance. The newest version has inverted the color scheme, made the font small, and made it a lot more difficult to access the weather on an hourly and daily basis. I miss being able to see my 7 day forecast at a glance. At the very least, I should be able to see the hourly forecast for the day without clicking around multiple times within the app. I actually prefer to use the native Apple weather app because it’s more straightforward. The Weather Channel should give users the option of viewing the app’s content the old way as opposed to claiming that user’s can “just scroll down” for more information. I also prefer the easily recognizable symbols for fog and wind that used to appear. I don’t see the new app as an improvement AT ALL. To the developers: offer other options within the app if you’re unwilling to change it back. I’ve spoken to other users, and I’m not the only one who no longer wants to use your app after the recent updates.
Why change what work?
by Don Montgomery on 2018/12/23 20:28
I had to come back and re-address this!! I noticed some body gave The weather Channel a four star!! If anyone does it’s from the family of the Weather Channel! It’s a fake review from the Weather Channel! Just be honest Weather Channel just fix the problems and quit selling our data!!! Please we all loved you at one time and we need you back in full form and performing as a shining beacon on a lighthouse as our lives and our family lives depends on your performance! Wow did the Weather Channel app ever change from an outstanding app to an awful app! Collecting way too much personal information and sharing it with third parties!!!! Sure hate losing you weather channel!!! I sure hope I can get by without even giving you one star! You’re really turned out to be a disappointment with your new App design being a complete failure and so difficult to navigate… Just so difficult and sharing too much personal information raping us!!! So long my favorite at one time… Happy trails… Yep I could not get by without having to rate you with one star!!!! You do not even deserve the one single star Weather Channel!
Disappointed
by Baby Elliebear on 2018/09/01 15:28
I used to love this app, because it was easy for my elderly family members to understand and showed what the air pressure was at any given time. Now that they have changed it I am constantly getting calls from family asking what is going on and that they cannot follow it. You should have followed the age old statement. “If it is not broken, do not fix it.” Now you have created an app that is anything but user friendly for anyone and you removed important information like air pressure. I know that as I am writing this it will fall on deaf ears, but if you have older friends or family or know people who are not weather savvy, stay away from this app!!!! I really wish that companies would stop changing things to “keep up with the times”. Leave it alone if you have something good. Now I have to hunt for a different resource and on top of that worry about making sure that it does not have a virus attached. I am really disappointed with the Weather Channel team. I have been watching them since they first aired on television when I was a kid and never thought I would see the day that I would turn away from them.
Local on the 8’s
by KZink on 2018/10/09 11:51
I have loved the weather channel since local on the 8’s. My sister and I would watch as kids to see if we could wear capris in the spring. (Temperature has to be above 65 degrees.)You are still my go to for weather everyday. Your information, radar tracking, and rain alerts are all very helpful. The only reason I give a 4 out of 5 is I’m not a fan of the stark white background. The pictures of the outdoor scenes in the background before this update were quite lovely to open up to in the morning. It made me look forward to getting to know my weather. While the white is clean it just feels cold. The line graph when you open up the app is cool but I find it more informative if the temp numbers were bigger and you could scroll down to see your hourly Temp change rather than clicking through the different sections. Moral of the story coming from a BFA who loves art: bring back the pictures. It makes the people feel good.
Change of Info Needed
by Lefty21955 on 2018/07/16 22:46
I go to this app, because I don’t watch local news and need real time data. I used to watch The Weather Channel, but unless they changed “Your local on the 8’s”, it’s not as helpful as an app might be. As another user mentioned, this app gives too much forecast. It’s rare to have an accurate forecast for today, tomorrow, or the weekend, so why give the outlook for 15 days? What I would like to see is more current and hourly data. Here where I am, humidity is a big issue; a huge issue really. Hourly forecast showing temp AND humidity would be much more useful. The radar would be helpful, if it were easier to load and gave 15 minute intervals for the future cast. The radar for what passed already is really only helpful as far as the path of the weather, so that timeframe probably could be shortened. I like that this app now features “Watson”, because that should be giving better info. Please keep revising this app! I think we all would like it and use it more, if it were improved.
Just because you can change something, doesn’t mean you should
by Oh My BMW on 2018/05/25 06:32
This is definitely not as good as the old Weather Chanel App. I understand software changes are sometimes needed and maybe these changes were needed to support advertising etc. But I don’t understand, why they would move from a platform that had great features, to new one that’s a piece of junk. We were able to see a five day forecast a glance. And if you wanted a longer forecast, a screen swipe showed five more days of forecast. And viewing forecast of multiple city was just as easy. Swipe the screen above the five day forecast and another other city’s forecast popped in. The old app made good use of a single screen view and a tap or swipe made it easy to navigate to forecasts. The latest app tends to jump to a detailed daily screen that must be scrolled vertically to read. It was much easier to scan weather trends horizontally. I’m moving on to another App, until they recognize and reinstitute the quick great features they abandoned. Just because you can change something, doesn’t always mean you should change.
not that great
by mligenzaa on 2019/04/07 16:55
the weather is accurate so i still use it but the app has flaws: first of all, the stupid videos about things that don’t really have to do with the weather or if they do are not something we need to know about. and they are SO clickbaity. if i wanted to watch the news i would watch the news. second of all, the functionality of the app isn’t that great. i can’t actually change the order of my starred places, i will edit it and then when i click on a location it takes me to the wrong one and nothing ever changed. i would also like to be able to swipe to go to the next location instead of clicking on the sidebar. i would also like the today’s details slide to go more in depth. like say whether a humidity of 80% is high or low, or with the UV index put safety statements if it’s really high. also just tell us if it’s high, right now it just says a number. what’s that number out of? what SPF should i wear? how at risk am i? things like that. also it might do you well to take notes from the weather underground app, i would still be using it if the forecasts were as accurate as this.

What’s with the huge ads?
by Wthrbug4me on 2019/11/17 20:41
Why does an ad for “Frozen” start the initial page off and is at least twice as big as the daily/hourly forecast? Really irritating that I have to scroll down past that to see the weather...on a weather app.
A bit annoyed
by anessavay on 2019/11/17 20:08
All of a sudden, I started getting ads again on my app, and I assumed my "Remove Ads" subscription had expired. Turns out, it was purchased 11/27/18 and should NOT have expired on 11/18/19. I did a year of premium because the ads are super annoying, but I dislike being cheated out of 10 days worth of ad-free forecasts and weather...especially when the obnoxious ad was for Frozen 2, a movie I do not plan to watch and have zero interest in seeing. I do like the extended forecasts available with the premium, which is about the only reason I went that route instead of just "Remove ads" again. But this subscription model everyone is moving to for ad removal vs a one-time shot is getting old. Really fast.
Hate new format
by Sherry Teacher on 2019/11/17 19:54
Do you ever read your reviews ⁉️ Never works. Too small to see well. Why fix what’s not broken? The website does not load. Not very useful if it doesn’t load. I’m using an IPad. Plus, they never get it right. I’m sitting in bright sunshiny weather and they say it’s raining. Easier to just look out the window.
I Want the Old TWC App for IPad
by An137on978 on 2019/11/17 19:44
This app had improved from my prior 1 star rating up to pretty useful. However in the recent time (since iPadOS 13.2? or shortly before), it has totally reverted to being mostly useless. So, my earlier words are again appropriate: “I use my iPad horizontally, and the new app fails in horizontal mode. It takes much too long to scroll through the app, to find stuff. There‘s a real waste of space and design features.” The by-the-hour display used to be very useful, horizontally, showing around 24 hours worth of hourly predictions. Now, maybe 4 hours are viewable unless doing wasteful of time scrolling. Why does TWC (FOR iPAD) shoot itself in the foot so often? The display would seem a crude knock-off of the TWC for iPhone design, with the iPhone vertical orientation and iPhone ratio of height to width. Totally unsuited to even vertical iPad, much less my go-to horizontal orientation.
Update stinks
by Reklisammy on 2019/11/17 17:38
I accidentally updated the app. Why can’t you just leave well enough alone. I’m also now plagued with adds. Junk. Looking for new weather app
Opportunistic
by daoofphoenix on 2019/11/17 16:16
Dishonesty is quite a trend now. Paid for ad-free, now it’s subscription-based. I press “restore purchases”, big surprise, there is nothing to restore. Every other app allows you to be “grandfathered” in. Not this one. These news companies like to jack up their apps heavily with ads. That is why I don’t watch TV anymore and the “Weather Channel”.
Daily forecast
by casinophyco on 2019/11/17 16:11
Next day forecast should be more in-depth for days ahead. Should be able to see at least one whole week with revisions as needed🌈🥰
The ads!!!
by Historicalamers on 2019/11/17 16:02
The ads are so invasive!!!!! I really like this app. I have used it for years, and years, but the ads are huge!!! They take up literally half of the screen. Also, they pop up when you do anything. You scroll down, pop up, you tap on something, pop up. You need to do fix this, or your going to lose a very long time user. Which won’t bug me too much since your reliability has decreased in the past year or so.
Accuweather much better
by bigsmellyfeet on 2019/11/17 14:02
I’m sick of the ads and the upgrade page opening immediately instead of my weather. The upgrade doesn’t cost much but the extended hourly forecast is free/standard with accuweather. I’ve deleted weather channel app
Ads?!
by Rainey Day Lawn on 2019/11/17 13:59
Thanks for the 100 ads running while trying to search for the weather. And I love constant pop up asking me to upgrade. Your weather app is a joke
Getting worse
by kapart on 2019/11/17 12:46
Have been using this app for a very long time. I am in trucking business so I need to know weather. It’s been getting worse with every single update. I paid money for a paid version not to see the ads but who cares. Eat it customer. At least return me my 5$
Done
by wishme luck on 2019/11/17 12:05
Waited and did the last lastest update to see if anything was change, Now pop up adds and more pop up adds!! Deleting after writing this.. it’s such a shame because this was the only app that I used for my simple look at the weather. Now it’s a cluster topped with adds and more adds. So done!!! To the app writers, figure out what’s important!!!
Advertising
by AlittleOFeveryThing on 2019/11/17 10:02
I’ve used the weather channel app for years. I consider it to be the most accurate, and clearest information available. I’ve seen many forms of evolution in it. BUT! This latest version is so loaded with advertising that weather information is second to the ads. The main page is a giant advertisement with some weather information on top. The radar is now trying to SELL you the upgrade to see the lightning strikes (something that WAS free and I used heavily recently in previous version) Something you’re even lucky enough to get a full screen pop up bugging you to upgrade to the paid version. I’m very disappointed in being bombarded with ads, upsells, and struggling to just get my weather information I want.
App badges for Ads ruins experience
by mamacats2010 on 2019/11/17 07:26
I understand the need to make money on an app in order to maintain it which is presumably why they’ve gone gung ho with the ads. I was willing to put up with them, but I am about to to uninstall the app because app icon badging, which was once reserved for important weather notifications such as severe weather, now seems to be used when the app has a new ad. I’ve gone into the app three times beckoned by the red badge to see what severe weather I need to prepare for only to be slapped in the face with an ad and no severe weather alert. This is a gross misuse of notifications that completely erodes user trust. I do not believe ads should be the primary function of any app, but the Weather Channel has turned their app into just that. After many years as a loyal user, I am sadly in the market for a new weather app.
Ads after I pay for no ads
by iHATED-IT on 2019/11/17 06:34
I used to pay the monthly fee for no ads then guess what? I would get ads every when I logged in. I would have to “restore purchase” and after the fourth time I just canceled and deleted this app. Silly reason to lose customers.
no local or any current radar now
by no radar = no weather on 2019/11/16 22:41
lots of useless junk but at least it did a basic good job, now no current radar. for years that was my go to for weather coming my way and to plan ahead. no longer useful, going to delete.
This is best so far
by ajbmd on 2019/11/16 21:55
I have several apps on weather as none of them were perfect but this one gives me what I need...knows where I am to promptly give me local Weather ...really happy with it
Keeps getting worse.
by LoveandMercy69 on 2019/11/16 19:33
I used to pay for this app but new format is terrible and I refuse to pay for it. Now they constantly harass you to give them money.
Ads
by MikeW84cle on 2019/11/16 17:43
Ads have made the app frustrating to use. I deleted it and went to Accuweather
Incredibly Unstable
by Dvoland on 2019/11/16 17:23
Does this app have the data I want? Sure! But the level of instability is finally pushing me to find a different app. 1) Often, upon launch, I see a strange, darkened screenshot of my iPhone’s home screen within the weather app’s loading screen. My background image is missing, but my entire layout of applications is visible. Makes me question my privacy for sure. 2) Launching the app takes forever. Well... much longer than it should. If the app had been previously force closed, it takes a solid 30 seconds to get situated and show me any weather data upon launch. 3) Worse: If the app has NOT been force closed recently, the app still takes 30 seconds to launch... and then simply crashes. The speed/performance of my entire phone is then affected for up to a minute. We’re clearly dealing with some massive memory management and/or CPU usage bugs. This happens whenever I multitask between apps as well. If I manage to muster up the patience to successfully open the weather channel app the first time, I don’t dare to attempt multitasking. Leaving the app and coming back in any fashion leads to the 30-second crash and freeze as mentioned earlier. 4) Running the weather app seems to affect how other apps run. If the weather app is running (or trying to open), other apps on my phone sometimes suffer. I might lose progress or be forced to restart other apps as well. Again... it’s crazy (and alarming) that the weather channel app’s bugs seems to have this much of an impact on my phone overall. Anyway, I’ll be finding a new weather app until these issues are ironed out. I’ve been dealing with these bugs for about a year now, and it’s finally time to say goodbye. ✌️
Deleting once and for all
by tonimk on 2019/11/16 16:34
This app has gotten progressively worse with horrible layouts, not being user friendly, and now the maps do NOTHING unless you buy the paid version. Yeah, no thanks. There are definitely better, free apps out there and I’ll definitely be using them instead. Buh-bye weather channel!
Ads ruined this app
by Swiat34 on 2019/11/16 15:38
This used to be an excellent weather app and it does well at that still BUT now there’s an add that covers the entire screen at start up and there is more screen space dedicated to ads and “upgrade to premium” than to the weather info. I’ll be looking for a different app and go back to Apple Weather in the meantime.
Fix the app
by Thanatos4 on 2019/11/16 13:56
The radar is probably the best part of the map when it works. App crashes regularly at launch. I can’t tell you how many times I have been rained on with a “0%” chance of rain in the forecast. The new in your face “Premium” advertising is super annoying and has made me use the app less and less.
I don’t want to buy this app
by Bianco1 on 2019/11/16 13:54
Stop asking me if I want to up grade every time I open up the app.
Bloated Adware
by dataskatt on 2019/11/16 13:36
I am sick and tired of all the ads in this app. I understand the need for advertisers, but now I am greeted with a huge ad screen as soon as I open the app. And it won’t close!!! I want to see the weather. Not a big old ad or a plea for me to upgrade. Upgrade to what? More ads? The app has become unusable, and I am looking for a replacement today!
Worst App Ever
by a.n.g.r.y on 2019/11/16 13:07
Weather Channels new version is the worst! So slow loading that it will time out, so slow developing that it freezes, and the wait time just to get a temp is ridiculous. Might as well forget trying to scroll because that takes forever and a day and by the time the screen starts to scroll the weather your looking at has actually changed. Worst worst worst ever!
Paid for Premium and did not work
by SmithM12345678910 on 2019/11/16 11:59
6 weeks ago, I paid $9.99 to upgrade to Premium; it is still not working even though I was charged. I have tried to contact the app developers via email, the option listed. I have read their posted articles on their site, and tried to restore the app. None of this has been helpful. When you email them an issue, you get an automatic email stating they will contact you. I have not heard back anything. This has been frustrating to say the least!
ADS ADS ADS
by xqzmepleze on 2019/11/16 11:53
Use to like using the app and even got the ad free version when it was 3 bucks now you want to squeeze moe ?? Out us for 10 bucks may have to stave using other apps just to get the same info as TWC app and NOT PAY a ransom just to view weather without ads and nonsense news videos
#1 for a reason!
by GleefulSmith on 2019/11/16 02:52
I have always been a user of TWC’s app. They continue to improve the experience and the features. The new wind stream feature is super cool and on its own well worth the price of a premium subscription.
New is not always better
by valueman1957 on 2019/11/16 02:25
After all these years, I have decided to delete this app from my phone, seems like over the last couple of years every time they update it, it gets worse. Now it pesters you to upgrade to the paid version, but I cannot believe it would be any better, and they wouldn’t update it in to even worse territories, so not only will you not get my money, you will lose my revenue from the adds, since I will no longer be using your app So I guess after all these years, this is goodbye
Not my go-to app anymore
by OregonII on 2019/11/16 00:50
S used to be the best app for accurate info on my location and other locations to which I was traveling. Now it’s just a bunch of small boxes that are hard to navigate. Back to NOAA.
Works Great & More Accurate!
by F35panther on 2019/11/15 23:54
Use it in Western US & Texas, seems to be more accurate than others.
Complete Ripoff and waste of time
by Gtbuzzedofftoday on 2019/11/15 22:06
I purchased the $9.99 year free of ads version. Guess what? Half the time you open this junk it still has a ad to buy some other crap. You can’t rearrange the hole layout. I don’t have any care for a video section. You know what I want? Temps and forecast. I don’t want the pollen count. This is the worst app experience I have ever had. Whoever made this should fired and punctually shamed for such terrible crap.
The Blue Screen App
by Hooseahmagomewatsi on 2019/11/15 20:16
At what point are you going to fix the problem with the app starting up to a blue screen? Several updates have occurred but this problem still exists. Not much else to evaluate with just a blue screen. Also noticed when the app does start, a pop up of “lightning in the area, go Premium...” every time SNOW is in the forecast. It really surprises me that the Weather Channel could get this kind of forecast wrong consistently.
Ad Hell
by xsalientex on 2019/11/15 20:04
I’ve been using this app for years. It has become so inundated with ads that the user experience is ruined. If you want to see an ad every time you open the app and watch a 15 second ad to view a 30 second video then this app is for you. If you want to remove the ads you have to pay a hefty annual subscription.
Adds 🙄
by Ianfact on 2019/11/15 16:40
I liked this app earlier on in its previous versions before the updates ruined the interface. The most annoying part of the updated app for me lately has been the incessant ads. Every single time I open the app I am met with an ad I immediately need to close out before I can look at the weather. Thinking about moving to another weather app because I’m sick and tired of the constant advertising popping up every time I try to use it.
Many issues
by ibikeride2 on 2019/11/15 15:45
App does not load automatically - Must manually refresh the app. Today’s Details are not at the top. Too much scrolling. Have to pay for a subscription to get some basic features that are free in other apps. No time stamp when current conditions were obtained.

Went downhill
by JSpin95 on 2019/11/15 12:58
I don’t need a full page advertisement to buy the “premium” version of the app, especially when I already paid for “The Weather Channel Max” and used that until you guys deprecated it. I was fine with the free version after that up until this new annoyance. It’s the little things that matter, TWC.
Best weather app!!
by Sboroday on 2019/11/15 12:53
Best app I’ve ever used. I work outside so it’s awesome to have an app with accurate predictions!
Bait and switch inferior app
by LLRC on 2019/11/15 12:35
Paid for pro app years ago and they scrap that and move to this subscription model. Are you kidding? You can get this and more free elsewhere and it does not crash all the time like this one. I love how you could be in a dangerous weather situation and you go to this app to get important information and protect your life but only get prompted to pay $99 year. Thanks for nothing.
Sad and annoyed
by Kin33 on 2019/11/15 12:05
This used to be my favorite app but the new version took away features unless you buy the full version. And the message asking you to upgrade that appears constantly is annoying. I’m using a different weather app. I don’t want to say which one or they may buy and ruin it like they did with weather underground.
Gale warning all the time?
by BudmanMikeL on 2019/11/15 11:47
For about a week or more, when the app opens up, I continue to show a Gale Warning where I live. There is no real Gale Warning in my area so not sure why that is still showing. App also often takes a very long time to start up.
Bad to worse than ever
by kcwildfire on 2019/11/15 04:24
Back in the heyday of software, companies used to nickel and dime people for every new update, every new feature, etc. At least you were paying for additions. The weather channel app has been updating the free app to take features away. Like showing only 2 days of hourly weather with the upgrade to premium message if you want to see more. I am never going to pay for a weather app, never. The weather isn’t accurate anyway but yet you want us to pay for your computer generated scenarios. I’m going to find something else to replace it. Deleting this app from my phone, money grubbers.
Why change a good thing.
by jrcooter on 2019/11/15 02:22
My old iPad finally just quit so I bought another and when I loaded the Weather for iPad app I was so disappointed I loaded another weather app. I wish I could somehow get the oils one back.

by RR2004al2001!@#* on 2019/11/14 19:32
Here is why I give this a 1 star. When I paid for the pro version of the app I had cool things like tropical storms and lightening strikes near me. Now it’s telling me to go premium for that stuff. They keep trying to charge for things that used to be free. I’d go with another app for weather. I’m done with the weather channel.
To many ads
by djdrewrose on 2019/11/14 16:44
You have to watch a 30 second ad just to see the news and videos. Crazy
App review
by Missing Link 1924 on 2019/11/14 15:16
I love the accuracy of the rain forecast. I have told my friends about the app and will be very useful to them
Decent app but buying premium still gets you ads
by MeliKirk on 2019/11/14 15:08
When I first subscribed the ads went away but now they are back after only a couple of weeks. What’s with that? Will cancel that if it isn’t fixed
Annoying
by matt2386 on 2019/11/14 14:41
Had this app for awhile now. Only loads up half the time then I need to restart my phone when it doesn’t. They have ZERO ways to get ahold of them on there app about it to tell them about the fault. Then just want you money and don’t care what you get. If they really cared they would find a way to contact me or make one on the app!!! I’ll be back with another review and let you know if they care!
Premium
by meh14701 on 2019/11/14 11:33
I don’t get why all of a sudden now we have to pay to access things like wind stream, lightning strikes, etc. it used to all be free with the app. This used to be my favorite app to use.
Terrible Redesign
by Sciencetchr on 2019/11/14 10:23
Paid for weather channel max years ago to get rid of ads. They did away with that to make people pay monthly to eliminate ads. The latest redesign made the weather hard to see while the ads are huge. Time to delete.
Hard to see
by Joejoejoe65424763 on 2019/11/14 07:43
Colors do not have enough contrast. Very difficult to see. I recommend the WeatherNation app instead.
Thanks for nothing, IBM
by schwank on 2019/11/14 06:21
This used to be a go-to app for weather, but since IBM’s money grab, I am on the hunt for another weather source. The Weather Channel app used to be free with amazing, ad-driven content. I cannot tell you how many ads I watched or saw while using this app, but it was PLENTY! HOWEVER, since IBM’s purchase and subsequent move to limiting content for non-subscribers, I have started using this app less and less. I do not understand why IBM has to mess with a great thing and make it all about making more money than they already were. Honestly, just offering the weather content without all of the videos and nonsense would be cheaper in the long run and meet your consumer’s needs better. To summarize, bring back the old, simple, useful Weather Channel app without all the bells and whistles, and get rid of IBM’s money grabbing subscription crap.
Make ads look nicer on the app please!
by ChrispyT2 on 2019/11/14 04:55
Feature requests: Wind gusts!!! Pressure tendency! Add NWS warnings polygons to radar overlay Add current visibility / cloud cover to current conditions Forecast summary for the day or future describing changes in temperature or chance of precipitation, etc. Bring the app over to the Mac.

Used the app for years and it’s been great. Now you can’t open it without constantly trying to get sold a premium version. Then the ads have taken over the top of the screen once you navigate past that. Really hard to navigate around all the nonsense to quickly check weather.
Inaccurate
by Aimazing1126 on 2019/11/14 00:54
Radar is inaccurate. Many times I’ve been caught in the rain and the radar is showing clear skies. Forecast will say no rain while it’s pouring on my head. App now seems to be more concerned with ads and getting me to pay for a subscription than actually projecting accurate forecasts. I will be deleting the app.
App always closes
by Hollyreview19 on 2019/11/14 00:37
I love this app and have used it for years, but it always shuts down as soon as I open it. Then, will sometimes shut down again while I’m using it.

Videos without captions
by gimom69 on 2019/11/13 16:42
How do we watch weather videos without large captions taking over most of the viewing of videos while using an iPhone!! Irritating and we can’t see the video

When are you going to do a dark mode
Constantly crashes
by Irish Lassie 1992 on 2019/11/13 16:02
Accurate wearher forecasts but rhe app constantly crashes and I have to delete it and reinstall it at least once a week.
Works great, needs dark mode option
by mhold3 on 2019/11/13 14:04
The paid version has everything I need without the adds but needs a dark mode option.
STOP Asking me to go premium
by JdoggM on 2019/11/13 12:50
Premium is utterly garbage, 72 hourly forecast does nothing in CO, 30 mile lightning strikes are just unnecessary. Yet every time I log in to check the weather I get an ad to go premium. This needs to stop.
Crashes all the time
by Duggyc16 on 2019/11/13 12:12
This is the most frustrating weather app. It crashes every single time you open it. And then you have to open it again. I thought with all of the updates, this flaw would be fixed by now.

by Hossnspike on 2019/11/13 10:55
Way too many adds prior to viewing their videos. I understand this is a revenue stream for them, but the same 30 second advertisement before each video... Please!
Used to like it....
by Ridge runner 1809 on 2019/11/13 07:07
Used to be a good source for the weather. Now it glitches in opening sometimes, has a super busy interface with too many small windows, and is more difficult to use. Some features have been reduced, like hours out, unless you buy the paid version. Too much “in the paid version, buy it today” notices.
Seriously???
by deesquared777 on 2019/11/13 06:12
You now have ads on the top of the home page between the current temp and the Today/Hourly/Daily info, and we now have to scroll to see the weather? Come on. Knock that crap off. Why did you start that? That’s not what we want, and you know it.
Loaded with ads and pop ups
by Jcd123wer on 2019/11/13 06:07
This app used to be great. Unfortunately the forecasts have become unreliable and the app riddled with ads.
Should be Called Ad City
by OldBugGuy on 2019/11/13 04:28
Horrible ... nonstop ads. I have never seen an app with so many Ads. Delete Delete Delete If you enjoy watching ads, this is the app for you! Nov 2019 .....minus one star. Even more ads than the last time I reviewed it!!!!
Broken app
by Adolfo Teran on 2019/11/13 04:27
The radar doesn’t work, It keeps sending me random alerts that are no where around me. This app is outrageous. Not only that, they want you today to get the full experience. This app is no good and should honestly be forgotten.
Premium version pressure lost me
by Tom1999654 on 2019/11/13 04:25
You lost me with pressure to buy premium version to see hourly forecast 2 days out. I won’t be seeing ANY of your ads anymore. Weather underground has me now.
Premium rip off
by Msandberg on 2019/11/13 04:20
Let me start with saying I love the weather channel app. So much so that I purchased the premium upgrade. Nothing changed whatsoever....and I still kept getting notices to upgrade to premium. My credit card was charged and no upgrade occurred. I reached out to the app developers 3 times through the lame email option. No response after a week. Requested a refund and have been told it’s going to be issued. Waste!
No Premium Upgrade
by Sadder but wiser user on 2019/11/13 03:17
November release of Weather Channel app still fails to fix the Premium Service bug. Paid for Premium Update, App won’t display the extra data. So received nothing for my money.
Perfect
by oholomuba on 2019/11/13 02:46
Perfect App!!
Buh Bye
by ShadyCharacterMark on 2019/11/13 02:14
Used to love this app but with each update the screen real estate devoted to useful information gets smaller and smaller. Plus, the hysterical “alerts” designed to bring you back to be exposed to more ads are annoying. I’m uninstalling this garbage and looking for something better, even if I have to resort to my local television forecast.
Stop it
by Meeeeeeeeeee112457 on 2019/11/13 01:35
Get rid of the screen asking me to get the premium version every time I open the app, or I’m switching to my local news channel’s weather app
update
by Dislike New App on 2019/11/13 01:21
AGAIN your last update is causing incorrect weather information in areas🤦🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️🤭🤔
App was great until IBM bought it
by Dysturbed on 2019/11/12 23:38
This app was top notch. Now it is a buggy mess and loaded with “new” features that were once free that you now have to pay an annual subscription for. Try a local news channel app or accuweather and get more for less.
Whazzup, Weather Channel
by digoldy on 2019/11/12 23:17
As we approach November of 2019 the Weather Channel is still showing flu stats from last year's influenza season. A poor performance from a premium weather service. And this was a key reason that I subscribed. When I contacted their support I received no response.👎🏽* * 11/12/19 Upgraded my rating to five stars now that Weather Channel has updated its app to include flu reports and predictions. It now offers everything I want and more.
Premium pop up
by LynMarie09 on 2019/11/12 23:14
Really tired of the premium pop up upon opening the app. It’s been long enough, I know it’s an option and if I wanted it, I’d get it. I will literally never PAY to get a weather forecast.
Great.

Restart required to fix widget
by H. Peabody on 2019/11/12 20:41
I’ve noticed that after every update, the units on the widget always revert back to the default imperial, while the app is set to my preferred metric. I always have to restart my phone to correct it.
Slow App
by Lky Jack on 2019/11/12 20:34
This is the slowy app I have ever been!
Slow load times. Too much stuff going on
by 488mag on 2019/11/12 20:31
App has gotten too complicated that it takes forever to load. I can get faster weather forecasts going to their website. Most of the features are of little value.
Over monetized
by NovaNoctis on 2019/11/12 20:11
This app was great for many years. Now it’s all adds if you don’t pay a monthly fee. Navigating around the adds is way to much trouble. Accuweather is a way better app now that the weather channel has over monetized this app. Sad but definitely can’t recommend this app any more. Maybe if enough people delete it like I did they will make it more usable again.
Don’t. Want. Premium.
by tommymaynard on 2019/11/12 19:27
If I keep getting nagged to get premium, I’m going to quit you. I promise. This would be a great time to invest in your weather app, Apple.

Lost functionality

So apparently they took away futurecast on radar. Useless now. Deleted. Going back to local station app.
Spam
by omg spam on 2019/11/12 17:43
Stop the pop up for me to BUY your weather app. I don’t need your solicitation to keep popping up. If I feel the need to buy a weather app which I never will I’ll let you know. In the meantime I don’t need the spam!
Dark mode.
by Sunthebun1 on 2019/11/12 17:12
Several weeks ago I wrote about dark mode and you responded that it was coming soon. I thought it would be here by now. How much longer do I have to wait until dark mode gets here? PS! Over the last couple updates you are repeating the same in what’s new. Don’t repeat them.

My favorite app
by Elksom on 2019/07/25 17:22
I used to rely on the standard Apple weather app that is pre-installed on the iPhone to receive all my forecast knowledge. I had been using it for years to check the weather and daily temp until one day my mother told me to check the radar... what radar? “The radar on the weather channel app,” she replied. As soon as I downloaded this app my life changed. View the radar when storms are coming, videos about current weather and environment news, warning and watch notifications for changes in weather... it’s amazing! Somehow your friends always think you’re smarter when you know the weather. Thanks, weather channel app, for always telling me when it’s going to rain, you’ve saved a few ruined bonfires! Plus it tells you what time down to the minute it will start raining... and it’s always pretty accurate! All in all, this app is pretty great. It’s like the weather app of my dreams I didn’t know was the weather app of my dreams until I had it. Through everything the app has always been there for me, telling me an accurate forecast and alerting me with weather notifications. Sometimes getting notifications from the weather channel app is even better than getting a text from my boyfriend. The weather channel app is easily my favorite app. Trusty, reliable, and always tells you the weather. No strings attached!
New Update Nonsense
by R50an on 2018/08/29 01:46
I don’t know why the weather channel felt the need to completely overhaul the layout and design of their app. The previous version, which I had used daily for the last handful of years, was by all accounts a perfect weather app. Generally speaking, the main reason to change the layout of an app is to make it more efficient for the user. Unfortunately, the final product of this new design has done the exact opposite. The “upgraded” version of this app is an absolute pain to navigate and offers almost no benefits for the user. The most striking change made to the app is undoubtedly the bright white background. It’s baffling that people still think the bright white screen is an upgrade. Several of my other most used apps over the years have gone with the white background and I have had to delete several of them as a result. Unfortunately, I will likely do the same for the weather channel app if they don’t change or at least offer an alternative to the white background. It is blinding to my precious eyes!
What happened
by Honey Moon Pie on 2019/10/15 18:38
I liked the fact that being older than dirt I could put this on my iPad and make things bigger so that I could see and read everything. I liked the setup except that as with all things meteorologists have a harder time knowing what is going to happen and make guesses as to times of stuff. GOd still has control on most things and weather seems to be changing in our world also. So old age is not the only things that change in life. Why everyone uses light gray writing on a white background and expect someone to be able to see it is idiotic at best. I know all of the younger generation may like new update but I personally liked the old one best. There may have been a few things to change but wish you would make so people had a choice. Older people seem to never get a choice any more. At least there are many more apps I can go to and pray to find one I like. Thanks for nothing but causing me more problems with computers which I am getting ever more aggravated with. Not all old people want so many changes in their later years. Every time I finally get used to something, you geniuses decide to change all around. Just getting used to phones and iPads and all their changes every other day is enough to drive someone crazy and I don’t need any help since as you get older people don’t give me credit for having a lot of common since anyway! Thanks at least for trying to please all the people in the world.
Disappointed
by IbuSaja on 2019/06/24 14:27
Updated Comments: The app has gone from bad to totally unusable. The “current location” feature gives me the weather and alerts for an area that is 20 miles away. This is particularly annoying and dangerous on severe weather days. Further I repeatedly get notifications about about what the weather will be like tomorrow in different area area that 20 miles away from where I live, in a completely different direction. To make matters worse, when I try and report the errors, the email address provided within the app come back with a delivery failure because it is invalid. After years of loving the Weather Channel on so many levels, and trusting them to keep me informed and safe, I am done. Wish I could give this app a negative star rating. This used to be a great app. Clean, concise, simple and accurate. However, all the “updates” and redesigns during the last year or so have turned it into one hot mess. It takes forever to load, crashes repeatedly, removes saved locations and settings with each update, and keeps sending me forecasts and alerts for cities where I do not live, have never been to and could care less about. I have sent these concerns to support several times and nothing is ever fixed or even addressed. It’s all about advertising and video features. I have used this app for years, yet am getting ready to delete it. I am so disappointed.
Money grab developers strike again
by Bsadle on 2019/06/09 12:58
Back a few years ago in the early days of the App Store, probably 8-10 years ago in fact, I purchased the ad free version of this app called Weather Channel Max. Good app, no ads and it worked well. Then about 2-3 years ago the app updated and said that this app will no longer be supported and that would be the final update. It stated the other version(the one with ads) would be the only version supported. I continued to use the app I paid for until it kept crashing after iOS updates and was pretty much forced to use the app with ads. Now I see you can go premium on this app and remove ads. That really ticks me off considering I had previously paid for the ad free version, only to have them snub it. I, at first, just thought they were only getting rid of max so they would force those who paid a one time fee for the ad free version back on the app that has ads. Not only was that true, but now, in hopes that people would forget(which I didn’t) they now offer a monthly subscription service to get rid of ads. This is a sad attempt at getting even more money from me. I will now be deleting the app and using another app instead. I’ve already given enough money to you all only to be asked for more. I’m really disappointed how greedy developers are becoming and all over an app that gives you mediocre weather reports.
Could be great app if it worked
by Havin'Fun-in-Louisiana on 2019/05/10 03:01
When it works I like the app. I like the changes and if it loads it is a useful tool. For me the videos and weather updates are very good. Not sure what the problem is, but for some reason and this seems to happen frequently — the app doesn’t load (spinning disk) or it just crashes and restarts and then back to spinning disk. So if it loads (might work for days and then not work for days) it is a good app. I have noticed the app works best in places with high speed internet. In a place outside or in a place that lacks high speed internet or great cell service, the app just won’t open quickly (maybe 5-10 mins to open). I have an iPhone X with the newest software and the newest version of the app, so I don’t think it is the phone. Anyway, if the stability can be improved and it can open quickly than it would be a great app. Update: I downloaded the new version and it worked ok for a week (I.e. seemed like an improvement) and then crash city and or the spinning wheel of Watson after that. Now it is useless again. Weather is such an important thing to know and I have no idea why the concept of an app that works is so hard. I stick by what I wrote above - when the app works, it is great, but for some reason it doesn’t work most of the time. Like others, I now use other apps that work all of the time.
New Update RUINED this app!
by Jr High Teach on 2018/08/30 16:35
UPDATED REVIEW: Another update to this app...and now it’s even worse!! The last update made a once great app bad; this update just completely decimated it. I’ll be deleting it because it’s now unusable. The layout is SO distracting that I can’t even focus on what I’m looking for - you know, the actual weather. Why so many lines everywhere?? It’s awful. Don’t know what they’re thinking with these updates, but whoever thinks these are improvements is an idiot and should be fired. Total trash app. So disappointing, as this has been my go to weather app for many years. ———————————————————— ORIGINAL REVIEW: I've never written a review before, but this latest app update compelled me to do so. The update has taken what was once my favorite weather app and turned it into a cluttered, ad-riddled, blurry mess. It now has 3 LARGE icons at the bottom of the screen for pollen, video & radar (with a moving ad below those 3 things) that offer no option to "hide." This effectively takes up a 1/4 of your viewing screen. Also, I've always liked their feature of being able to choose my background photo for the app screen. You can still do so, but your photo is now extremely blurry. I used to love this app, but the update has ruined it, so I will be deleting and searching for another unless they fix it ASAP!
Less useful since update 2018
by Frustrated former app user on 2018/10/13 21:14
I used this app multiple times per day in the past but since the 2018 update, I have hardly used it at all. The data is accurate. It is hard to find the info you need. They now have boxes on the screen with different info. The screen is so chopped up you can’t see enough of any one thing to figure out what it is. The previous version was better when current details were on the first screen and you could scroll down to whatever section you need. There was enough info on the screen to understand and you had the option to tap an arrow to get more detailed info if you wish. Now I see 2 or 3 words, then a box with an ad, then 4 or 5 words and then another ad. Nothing is obvious that you can tap to get more details. I hate tapping all over the screen to figure out what gives more details since the first screen is useless and there is nothing to indicate how to get details. Please revise back similar to the previous functionality which was efficient and obvious how to operate the app! I haven’t ever written a review before when an app changed, but this one is so bad it deserves a comment. The only reason that it gets 2 stars is because the data is accurate if you are ever able to get to it.
Does not deserve one star for this update
by Barometerbabe on 2018/09/08 18:40
GIVE US BACK THE OLD APP!!! This is no concise weather report. And: Bad background; bad graphics; bad set up. Too many ads, too many screen options. The best weather information is plain and simple (as this app used to be): current conditions, forecast, radar, and then the other options like future forecasts, air quality, etc. The Weather Channel has been my go-to for weather forecasts since it was on TV—with no commercials. (Who can remember back that far?!) My version of Direct TV does not offer The Weather Channel so I have been relying on my iPhone app; not any more. Either give me the option of having the old app back or do a major fix to the current mess. If not I will be deleting this app. There are plenty of weather apps out there so why go with something so inferior. ALSO VERY IMPORTANT TO ME (and others) IS BAROMETER INFO. IT CAN HAVE A MAJOR AFFECT ON HEALTH. Please add the barometer and don’t forget direction as well as numbers. I still have the old app on my tablet; using it when I am home. I just don’t get why Weather apps want to go too fancy. It is not what people want when they want weather. Save the fancy and extras for those wiling to pay for it, then you will not have to mess up a good, basic weather app. Hope you get the message from me and many others.
Way too much
by Walterwilson0315 on 2018/09/18 11:18
The new app is a very, very negative change. The old navigation was fine and did not need an overhaul because this is just a weather app. There’s WAY TOO MUCH extra stuff involved with this app, and I really don’t understand why these guys try so hard to make it entertaining. It’s literally just the weather, I’m not looking to be entertained and I doubt anyone else opens up the weather channel app like “oh boy it’s time to have a good time”. We just want to see a forecast and a radar and that’s it. The air pollution number also seems completely inaccurate because it’s different every time I open my app. Not to mention the recent discovery of a weather channel weatherman pretending to be pushed around by winds that just weren’t there. To the point where he’s babbling about the storm being in the middle of an intense surge or something like that, meanwhile a couple of pedestrians walk behind him wearing shorts and hoodies, not affected by the wind at all. Plus, he’s visibly fighting the wind in the opposite direction that it’s blowing. You can see plants blowing in the opposite direction of where he’s pushing. That being said, I feel like all the weather on here anymore is exaggerated because they think it’s entertaining to people. It’s really just a nuisance and the reason I’m getting a new weather app.
Why change it?
by Buckeye chris on 2018/09/04 12:28
I’m sorry but I dislike the new update. It has made the app a lot less user friendly. It’s difficult to navigate and to find specific information. I don’t understand why you think people would like this? We want simple and convenient. If you fixed the small font and color schemes that alone would help drastically. The important information is almost hidden now. For instance the current temperature is so small I need glasses to see it. Also there used to be an option to toggle the tropical storm and hurricane paths on/off now I can’t find that option anywhere. The issue is it covers the whole state days before the storm will arrive and I cannot see the radar. Then there’s the adds. Out of the 50 apps on my phone I do believe this app is the worst for adds. They’ve been creeping in and growing for years. Basically since the app I paid for didn’t work anymore and you went to a subscription app (which I should have received a refund for since I only had it for a year but I digress on that issue.) There is one add now even bigger then the radar! I’m not even getting started on the videos because everyone knows how bad they are, a 30 second add for a 20 second video speaks for itself.
Bad Update
by A disgruntled consumer99 on 2018/09/01 10:58
This used to be my favorite 5 star weather app. I love to track weather and preparing for my day each day by using the TWC app but that all changed with this new update. First of all I do not wear sunscreen and base my outfits on the uv index and that has now been removed. Next the app used to be easy to navigate and get all the relevant weather information for the day as well as some great videos that I would watch in the morning as I wake up, but now the app is confusing with too much going on. I understand in today’s world to stay relevant you need to make change but this change was not for the better, to confusing now and hard to find information. I feel bad for all the sponsors that would pay for spots in the videos because based on the way the videos are set up I bet less people will watch them, I know I no longer will. I hope that TWC can fix this app and make it more user friendly again with an easy to find uv index. I am not deleting the app yet but until it is changed I will no longer use the app and will start downloading new weather apps in hopes of finding a suitable daily replacement. I hope this does not fall on deaf ears, the TWC app was the best but not anymore. Thank you and have a great day.
Constant reminders to go premium when I already have and no accessibility support for Apple Watch.
by Mom24monsters on 2019/09/18 04:40
I think this app would be great if it worked for everybody on every device, but they seem to have left out those of us who use voiceover, who need to know what the weather is too. It’s not all about the sighted people! I’m trying to figure out why those of us who use voiceover should have to pay full price for premium when everything doesn’t work for us? Also, I’m getting really tired of the constant reminders to go premium, when I already have. I have to go and tell it that I want to go premium first, for it to tell me that I already am, before the stupid thing will go away until the next senseless time it pops up. Until these things are fixed, we shouldn’t be charged to use the app. There’s not a whole lot of premium quality to go in premium when you have a visual impairment and most of the stuff doesn’t work with voiceover, something that’s built into the iOS, and there’s no excuse for it to not work with it. Also, I’m trying to figure out why, if this app is included, even if it’s a dumbed down version of it, with iOS, does it have completely different forecasts? The temperatures don’t always match either.
Weather variety multiple locations
by master red fox on 2018/02/24 17:55
I have had this app for awhile and use it to not only get local weather but weather for various locations for my son's work travel as surprisingly conditions vary greatly within a 50 mile area which one needs to know if commuting. I get road conditions and various alerts ( rain, snow, lighting, etc) per area. All helpful. Last year because of the reports I got, I saved my son an unnecessary trip because of the weather report. I enjoy the various videos also. I am editing review because of the problems I have been having with the app which appears to be all over where this app is used. I contacted support and only got a service standard reply which is basically sent by a computer. I am highly disappointed that I can’t get the app to work anymore because it was very helpful when it worked. I am not sure if the malfunction is due to the updates on IOS which also requires apps to also update. Whatever the reason, there should be a way to correct problem with app especially when it effects all means of use on phones, tablets and computers.
Good overall but needs improvement
by HenryAppleuser123 on 2019/01/31 23:35
I use to enjoy the app and most importantly the interactive map. I really like it because not only can you read the weather, but you can also visualize it and I think that brings a new way of informing someone when looking at the weather. I think this is important because it could possibly help someone better understand what they are looking at and it also serves for educational purposes and that goes a long way when helping someone understand the intended message that trying to be sent. You never want any miscommunications. Anyway, I like the app overall but with the recent update, the layers of the interactive map now cover the whole screen and I find that kind of confusing and bothersome. For example, the temperature layer now covers the entire map instead of just the land masses. I’m my opinion, I think it was better before when it only covered the land masses and that applies for all the other layers like UV index etc. So if you can change it back to that, that would be great. Thank you for your time and keep up with the great work. Go weather channel.
Essential
by K Rae Reed on 2018/08/29 05:36
I’m a pilot so my life revolves around the weather. I don’t just look at the weather, I live IN the Weather. The professional meteorologists at the Weather Chanel give you the best you can get from the same raw sources available to me as a pilot. I check the Weather Chanel app more than any other app on my phone. They do an outstanding job explaining important concepts which give you the How And Why things work with the weather. I am a flight instructor and one of the first things I ask my new students is if they have the Weather Chanel app so they can track radar and see current weather unfold. I also assign for them to watch Weather Underground as much as possible. I learn something new from them every night. I admire every one of your on air meteorologists and kudos to the crew behind the scenes. There is someone behind the camera in the hurricane to thank. You give your all and have given your lives too. Thank you for all you do from a huge fan.
Give back favorite locations!
by carolinelynchminor on 2019/08/29 03:33
Below is my previous feedback comments! Here is the latest! So, I got the update. I went to the app settings. I tried to add features, but received the message that I must first add to my favorites!!! Good grief! There is no way to add favorites anymore! Remember.... Add to My Favorite????!!!!! It is definitely gone from the options!!!! Frustratingly ridiculous!!!! And, very maddening! Where did my favorite locations option go? Suddenly it was gone! I’ve been irritated over the many years I’ve used this app by all the unnecessary changes “the powers that be” have made! Now, I’m angry! You’ve taken away my ability to receive notifications and alerts from ola es where family and friends live! I suppose, “the powers that be”, are trying to force loyal users ito making a purchase! However, I cannot even find out what features a purchase includes, except for no ads! The ads aren’t that offensive or bothersome! Yes, they get annoying when it's the same ad over and over!!!! Taking away “my favorites” is low!!!! Disappointing doesn’t even begin to describe how manipulative “the powers that be” are to their loyal following! Plus, it’s obvious from reading reviews, they don’t listen to or care about the feedback! You had a great app at one time! Now, not so much!

This app, the meteorologists involved, and the channel have all gone steadily downhill in both the accuracy and presentation of their work. Want to know if it’s going to rain? Well, that’s fine, open the app, click on hourly, click the list, select the particular hour, and you’ve finally gotten yourself to a page that has a 2% chance of being correct about the weather at any given time. Rain predictions are always wildly off, temperatures are inaccurate, the future radar’s accuracy is nothing short of a joke, the app is overwhelmed by clickbait videos and hidden ads, and the “weather alerts” are both excessive and incorrect. Weather channel, you are NOT a nonprofit, you have one job (as Loki said “just the one!”) that you are PAID to do, and to be honest you don’t do it well at all. It is currently drizzling in my area, one minute ago the app claimed no rain, now the app says I have severe hail and thunderstorms in my area....nope, not at all correct. All these shortcomings, and still, now, you have the nerve to create a subscription service out of your features? Lost faith, going elsewhere, please find time in your lives to do your one job with at least the minimum standards of care or accuracy.
Catastrophe
by reallyisittaken??? on 2018/09/08 10:47
Hate the update and redesign. What a mess . . . The vast majority of the most recent reviews give this update one star, because you have to give at least one to write a review. I love weather and used to use this app many times a day. I updated this app over a week ago and still hate it. I have also installed several other new weather apps, to test and compare which I like best. Every other app I have installed, I like so much better. I’ve also read the Developer comments/responses, none of which are helpful. Most are condescending and assume that we are really trying to use this app in its new version. It makes me question who their testing group was. Actual users of the app? The Developers want a specific list of what is wrong. It would be best to start with the original format and list the major changes that were made to “improve” functionality and design and start there. Then they could add in the other detail information that was previously provided that is now missing. I believe they need to find a new group of users to test their product to give them honest feedback, as opposed to what they want to hear based on the roadmap for their design. By the way, even with thousands of reviews the rating of this app is dropping quickly . . .
very glitchy app
by lisanicoleiannarino4887 on 2019/10/19 20:40
while it’s informative and sometimes accurate, the app itself is a pain to use. it constantly crashes on open and needs restarted. it’s super slow. they constantly ask me to PAY FOR PREMIUM which is ludicrous. why would i pay for a weather forecast? it’s like you’ve designed the app to operate poorly to get people to pay for the premium. no thanks. they also share data and are one of the worst as far as surveillance of what you do online. the ads and videos that are interweaved throughout the forecast are also very problematic and cause freezes/slowdowns in the app. would be nice to just have my forecast in a cleaner interface that’s smoother to use and isn’t so glitchy. i’ve resorted to downloading other apps that are smoother in design and operation. UPDATE: developer asked that i update the app and then update my review. while the crashes have been reduced, the ads are still causing the app performance to be low. also, the update removed a feature that was useful, the “best time to be outside” feature under hourly forecast. I used this a lot to make sure i wasn’t walking my dog at the hottest time of day. it’s also still asking me to PAY for premium every time i open the app.
Notifications no longer work!
by Lise P. on 2019/03/06 13:09
The Notifications NO LONGER WORK on this app!!! No matter how many times I try to enable them it doesn’t work, I just keep getting the “ERROR - Unable to change your alerts at this time. Please try again later.” I’m talking every single day for the last few MONTHS. And why did my notifications shut off in the first place? It’s important to me to get severe weather updates because I live in a tornado prone area, TWC used to be a source for this but isn’t anymore. And BTW, shouldn’t that be a PRIORITY for TWC? (I have contacted App support multiple times to no avail.) I used to love this app but not anymore. I hate the glaring white background to start with! How about something a little easier on the eyes? (Remember that a lot of folks open this app in the middle of the night because storms woke them up and they need to see if it’s severe.) The ads are ridiculous and beyond excessive. The videos will randomly start playing as you scroll to try to get to useful info. What’s with all the graphs? And format the 7-day forecast like you used to please! I like the way it shows up when it’s emailed to me and that’s how TWC used to do it on the app, why change that? Please fix this app. Please fix the notifications problem ASAP.
We want Weather and not Water; been reliable till the IBM
by fbfbbckdjsbfncjjvjdbfkvjc on 2019/06/07 14:24
When the Weather Company owned The Weather Channel the weather was much more reliable. This channel focused on weather and not water. It had people who cared not for money, but for the safety of people. They had people down on the scene of a wildfire or a hurricane or a tornado! Now the IBM is saying they care for people but do they really? The IBM splits its business for agriculture, water, and other things; it does not only focus on weather like the former weather channel does. Yes, it is important that people around the world get water, hence The Water Channel, but this is not a charity app it is a weather app. The name chance shows everyone that this is no longer a reliable app. The premium option backs me up. The most reliable sorce you can get it only 48 hours out. Anything behind that is something unreliable; something you are fake selling people to get there money. The wind could shift and change everything. 48 hours is the furthest most reliable source there is. Also why is it not giving me accurate alerts for rain, lightning, pollen, or anything? Oh look it started raining... where is my alert. And hmmmm the radar says that it’s not..... like I said we want Weather and not Water.
I liked the old App better!
by ArdenBailey on 2018/12/14 21:32
Ever since the update my weather channel app is super glitchy. When I go to watch videos I have to watch an ad before every single one(the same ad over and over), this was not true for the old app. Also, if I click on the video and the ad plays but I scroll down to make it picture in picture and still browse the other videos... if I’m not at the video I initially wanted to watch when the ad ends and the screen goes black, when I try to click on it to bring up full screen it doesn’t work. Then, I have to click on a different video and then go back and am forced to watch the ad again. Also, if I am watching a video and the video ends and I’m in full screen, it immediately starts playing an ad(the same one I watched before the video) and the icon to minimize full screen is completely missing. I have to exit my app and go all the way back in just to watch a new video. I used to be an avid Weather Channel user but not anymore... I hardly even used it for the weather I just liked the nature/science related videos, and I can’t even do that anymore.
Change Is Not Always Good...
by Lora K Kay on 2019/03/10 20:11
I have used The Weather Channel app since I got my first iPhone 4, over any other weather app, and I’m now deleting it from my phone. I have given the new interface a long trial and the “fixes” have not improved this awful design. The adds overtake the screen, the graph is useless and I can no longer find real weather information that I can use. Three out of ten slides on the “Weather Snapshot” are related to my area with little information. The other seven are ads, international stories or ads disguised as stories. AND... this is not a unique look. It looks just like a FB Story, which was not an improvement on FB either. In order to get a TRUE weather Snapshot, I have to scroll through 6 other slides, the first which is usually a sensationalized video, and the second which is a tiny radar map. The aspects which most affect me are not seen until the 3rd, 4th and 5th slide, which often stick when scrolling through and lead to an unintentional advertisement opening. All of the information used to be right at my fingertips with a simple scroll for allergies, air quality and other details pertinent to me. Goodbye, Weather Channel!
Widget glitching
by sgwilso4 on 2018/10/18 04:23
Since I have searched and searched and can't find a way to contact the weather channel, here's a review with my issues. Since the latest update my widget in the Notification Center hasn't been updating properly. It will continue to have a "current temperature" from sometime earlier in the day. Even if I click on it and open the app, the current temp will not change. Also, on the note of the widget, why in the world when you click on the current temperature does it take you to the "daily" view? Why doesn't it just take you to the home page of the current location's weather conditions? There is a button in the widget for radar, daily, and hourly - tapping on the current temp should take you to the main screen for your location. Love this app but it's frustrating to have something not working properly and have no way to contact the company about it. The feedback section is just questions and answers, but nowhere to actually submit feedback or submit your own question or issue.
Well it would be ok if it worked
by Rokair on 2019/10/18 11:55
I hated that my favorite weather application with all sorts of features, smartly updated often, and simply works very well had to stop using the data from the weather channel as an option since the weather channel decided to no longer sell it to other application makers. So I thought I would see what the official weather channel application is up to these days. The main application is a bit boring in how it presents data but it seems to work. The watch application which I care the most about has three very basic screens that make it a struggle to quickly see any weather data and the complications appear to not work at all. I created a new face to test and placed both a large and a small on there. The large shows the “The Weather” and two dashed lines. The small shows an umbrella and bother else. Ok, so I guess it just doesn’t work at all. At least before you got some of my money via the Carrot weather application’s developers but now you get nothing as you have not convinced me to instead pay for you application that doesn’t even seem to work. After all these years I thought maybe you would eventually get you act together but I see otherwise.
New update and coverage of Florence
by Roll out update on 2018/09/17 04:40
New update is weirdly busy and hard to read and this is coming from a weather junkie. I had a hard time figuring out what those squiggly lines were for and yep supposed to be for day night-why? And you have to scroll through so much crap just to get to radar. Don’t know why it’s so counterintuitive. Also the videos and news stories are awful in that they update and recycle old stories and claim them as new. On a side note Florence’s coverage has left something to be desired thought it was just me being cynical esp after the silliness of someone getting caught faking wind and botched job of explaining it. But it’s been really weirdly non informative at times. I always watch hurricane coverage and this one esp with fam in area and well yep had to go to internet and other channels to find out what was going on in other places in nc. Really it was interesting the first little while but really hype focused on one area and not even to give info more like watch this reporter be really not smart and walk on beach during high tide with it at his feet. And other silly thing like that and that’s the take away instead of weather. Maybe too much showmanship and not enough weather news.
Great app
by StormHeart501 on 2019/06/19 22:59
I like this app because it is easy to use and highly accurate, I would highly suggest it to any of my friends who believe their weather app give inaccurate information and or they don’t like the functionality of the app they are presently using. I don’t have any REAL complaints other than sometimes I have to completely close and reopen the app for it to update on the temperature at the moment, it’s not necessarily giving incorrect information, I mean it kind of is but all I have to do is close it and reopen it. So if you could possibly fix it so it updates like maybe every few minutes so that I hopefully won’t have to constantly have to close and reopen the app every time I use it I would highly appreciate it. <3 but other than that the app is amazing and I would NO DOUBTS request it to my friends, in fact I found out about this app through my mom. But anyhow that’s all for now, please do consider my suggestion ❤️❤️❤️
It was great, then terrible, then good, then terrible...
by happygodavid on 2018/03/10 14:25
The original WC app back in the day was pretty solid. I paid the $4 for the ad free version. That version of the app was, hands down, the best weather app that has ever existed in the App Store. Then WC decided to go to a subscription model (because, money). Heck no. The new app has improved since the overhaul as far as look goes, but here’s the kicker; there’s no consistency with what displays. It’s scroll, scroll, scroll to find what I want. I want 4 things. Daily weather, 10-day forecast, maps, and occasionally hour by hour weather. THAT. IS. IT. And I would pay $ for an app that did just that. (I have, and they’re all nowhere near as good as the aforementioned WC paid app.) Please, WC, give me the option to set up the order of the major sections of the app. Let me buy your ad-free app without forcing me to pay for a subscription. With the look of your current app, do that, and you will have made the best weather app that exists. Come on, developers; convince your corporate bosses that this is what people want and that it will benefit the WC brand in the long run, even if they don’t make a few extra bucks a year from a ridiculous subscription service.
New interface is TERRIBLE!
by Cogsworth1972 on 2019/06/06 17:14
UPDATE: I wish I could give this app zero stars. First, I already paid to remove ads, now I am seeing ads again and when I try to restore purchase it says “Nothing to Restore”. This is probably because they switched to an annual subscription model and screwed over all of us that already paid for the app. Even worse, they have now hiked the new “subscription” price from $3.99 to a “premium” $9.99 per year. Total rip-off! I guess those “clean water” donations have to come from somewhere. I have contacted support and so far nothing but crickets. What can I say that hundreds of reviews haven’t already said? The new interface is a failure on every level. At the very least please get rid of the useless “Your Daily Weather Snapshot” thing and put some useful data in that screen space. It’s truly annoying as the ridiculous indicator makes me feel compelled to open it and scroll through weather info that I can see elsewhere in the app, and dumb videos I have no interest in watching. It is by far the worst, most useless feature of the “new improved” design. Just throw in the towel guys, read the reviews, admit that no one likes it and bring back the old app!
Story
by Old Mtn Man on 2019/08/09 15:19
My Daughter was driving me home after having a heart cath among other test at Vanderbilt Medical Center. We were driving 300 miles through strong thunderstorms at a very slow speed. We were both having so much trouble seeing that we could not find a exit to get off then interstate. Finally we got lucky and i spotted one in time to get off. We filled the suv with gas plus ourselves with some hot cocoa and coffee. I checked my phone to try and track the storm. I noticed that you stated there was a 22 minute delay between the bands coming in. I told my daughter let’s wait 10 minutes then leave. Thanks to your app we were able to drive the other half at a normal speed. It would have been an extra 5 hrs at the speed we were traveling not counting the danger we were in with all the 18 wheelers flying by us. Plus I needed my heart meds that were at my home Thank You for saving us
Horrible “Improvements”= Form over substance
by YayaHB on 2018/09/28 12:40
Or “Don’t risk a facelift when you’re already pretty good looking!” I am a frequent traveler for work and pleasure and take two or more out of state trips a month. I also come from a family of Weather Channel junkies who love flying, nature, and various other pursuits that take us outside and out yonder. As such, I regularly use your app several times a week. You had a successful product and I enjoyed using it even when the forecast was way off. While I can understand trying to make the app faster, I can not understand why you would completely change a format that was previously easy to read, with it’s bold colors and strong lettering, to a color palate that is light, with barely visible lettering. Please remember most of us are looking at your app on our phones and we are often on the go... The fine grey print, light purple, and glaring white screen is almost unreadable. It borders on the ridiculous. Sadly, I will be looking for another weather app to replace yours. I will miss watching your videos (even though you play the same commercial over and over and over...), but the main purpose of your app is now lost. RIP
Really?
by CStrong4044 on 2019/10/22 22:13
Upon opening this app you’ll wait a good 20 seconds to get past the blue startup screen. From there it’ll load your last location before pulling your gps location, so you wait for it to load and it shows you an irrelevant earlier location. Then it pulls your gps location, it reloads, and shows you your current location weather. About 45 seconds after loading the app on a brand new device you will be able to access the weather. From there you better hope you don't pull downwards too far or you’ll refresh and start over! So after you’ve wasted a minute now you're provided with a pretty comprehensive review of the weather, with an interactive radar that is pretty nice and accurate compared to other apps (why I give 2 stars instead of 1). But wait, theres more! NOW THEY WANT YOU TO PAY FOR AN ADD FREE/FASTER/MORE ACCURATE VERSION?!?!?! Thats the solution to a buggy app huh? No wonder the app never works because it’s constantly generating the best location specific ad!!! Don’t waste your time with this garbage weather app that has become a cash grab for TWC. Currently looking for better weather apps.
Big Issue
by TomahawkD23 on 2018/08/29 23:49
I am currently have problems with the new app that I can’t turn on notifications to receive significant weather advisories, daily rain/snow events, and pollen notifications. In the old app all those notifications where on. But when the new app downloaded they turned off and now I can’t turn them one. I once I’ve selected the notifications I want and press done, a screen comes up saying select a location. I look under locations, it’s blank, nothing shows up. I go back to the home screen. My current location is showing. I try again turning back on the notifications, I still am not being allowed to to select a location or is that part of the app syncing to my location like the home screen did. In my settings I have my current location turned to always on, still nothing. I used to rely on these notifications because I live in tornado alley so I guess it’s a good thing I also have a weather radio too. The Weather Channel app is now useless to me. I guess I rely on my weather radio now to keep my family safe!
Stupid and also very inaccurate.
by Rev Jude on 2018/05/27 10:21
First reason I call it stupid is because they name the snowstorms. I don’t know who came up with that stupid idea but the weather channel but it’s the most stupidest idea I’ve ever heard of naming a snowstorm give me a break. Also the next you know they’re going to name tsunami‘s earthquakes and every time we get a thunderstorm they’re going to name it. Plus their forecasts are always in accurate for where I live. I depend on the weather I can’t expect them to tell me what it’s going to be like in my area. I find that the cable weather is way off also and I don’t trust him. I also use storm in weather underground including the weather channel itself and they are the most stupidest apps to have. They are also very inaccurate and I don’t trust him. I have decided to delete their apps on my phone. I like to rock storms and when I found out from this app including the others if they do have if you can’t track a storm. This app is garbage for anyone who loves the weather. Anything the weather Channel has offer is all garbage. They don’t track storms do you know Kim good forecast in for anyone that Sirius about protecting the weather don’t use this crap.
App update is disappointing to say the least!
by jenpilch13 on 2018/09/08 12:53
The new weather app update is disappointing. The font/graphics are hard to see because they are so light and fine. The graph is not necessary and makes looking at the weather confusing and too much stimuli all at once. Who need that graph any way? The background is now white instead of blue again making the graphics hard to see. I like looking at the hour by hour top to bottom like before and now it’s L-R. The 2 weathers for each day is too confusing at a glance. If I want details I like clicking and reading about that but at a glance it’s way too much information. I have so much more to say about it but I don’t have hours to write a review. I have been using it now for 3 weeks or so and have tried to get used to it but I just can’t. I don’t like it at all. It has been brought up by almost everyone I talk to who used the old one and no one likes the new update. Please please go back or improve this new design. I loved this app before now and used it all the time! Now I dread looking at the weather and get annoyed trying to navigate the new app. 😢😤😠😡☀️❄️☔️🌪🌥🌦🌨
Let’s go back in Time
by Johnnyz53 on 2019/07/23 12:15
I own a manufacturing business in the South. Since we work in a mostly open warehouse the weather is very important there was a time when y’all had sections of importance. Videos: At one time the primary videos offered were segments of weather throughout the country. i . e. Northeast, southeast, Midwest, Southwest, and Northwest. Now it’s a melange of Weather top story, then somewhat insignificant stories with background music and subtitles of stories not necessarily pertinent to U.S weather on a daily basis. It seems you have to forage through the pooo to get what your looking for. There was also monthly data that showed averages for one’s area and where we are compared to the average on a rolling average. That’s completely gone. Nowadays it’s the basic local facts and sensationalism. I’m afraid that you don’t know how to get it back. Lastly, I find it interesting that your posting a 4.6 average when the Lions share of comments are negative. Himmmm Math channel? Update; I had to correct my score. I originally gave it 2 Stars. Once it showed up it was 4 stars. Very interesting, maybe it answers my score question. So now I gave it a 1. If you see any more than 1 star? It wasn’t me.
Good enough
by Nikkig127 on 2019/06/25 20:00
The UI is good enough, but I find myself going to the default iPhone app or WeatherBug more often. There’s just too much on the main screen of this app. It’s very busy and difficult to find the essentials at a glance. Additionally, this app is useless for travel. You can definitely look up different locations from your home location. But, if you leave the app, not close, just leave and come back two seconds later, it resets you and you’re taken back to your home location. So, when planning/packing for a trip, you’re constantly taken away from the last location you were viewing and you have to go search it again, over and over. So, I just stopped using this app all together for travel. It’s literally useless without completely resetting your default location to the place to which you’re traveling. It should, at least, hold your last viewed location for an hour or two, maybe 24 hours. The forecast is usually accurate. So, that’s good. But I’m not reviewing the meteorologists. I’m reviewing the app.
TERRIBLE UPDATE!!!
by CLS_1980 on 2018/09/01 11:14
I tried to contact customer support before leaving this review. There is no way to do that so here it is. I have had this app on mi iPad and iPhone for years. It used to work beautifully. I even paid to have ads removed. Later on I discovered location issues within the widgets on both devices. Then my precise location was deleted in the search. Aside from those things all was well. Now we have been given a fancy new update. It looks beautiful if you can get the app to open?! Unfortunately, I don’t have all day. Most of the time I end up staring at a spinning circle on both devices until the end of time. If it weren’t for the widgets I wouldn’t know what the current weather is. I haven’t received one notification on either device?! Thank goodness for my local news app that sends me notifications as well as gives me my weather! As it stands I have no desire to pay again for ad removal in October. I’m finding this app time consuming and loathsome. If all the bugs aren’t worked out soon I’ll see no reason to keep it. It’s virtually unusable and if they don’t care I don’t care. PRESS & HOLD, TAP THE X, DELETE AND FIND SOMETHING THAT WORKS!
Soooo many inconsistencies....
by Mamacitaslg on 2018/04/01 12:31
For example: Currently, there’s a warning rolling across the top of opening page. It states that there’s a winter storm warning from midnight through tomorrow at 1pm for 3-5” of snow with up to 6” in some areas. When scrolling down and looking at the detailed daily report for tonight and then tomorrow, it states a less than 1” tonight, and tomorrow 1-3” snow possible. Hence, huge discrepancies and inconsistencies, often. Very annoying. I don’t care how pretty the app is, just make it as reliable as possible. This is carelessness. Also, on a side note.... The videos (of which I have chosen not to even read the titles of anymore and get sucked in to watching) are so hyper-sensationalized and almost always over-dramatic, are a waste of time watching. Unfortunately, this is the app I’ve been most familiar with, so have stuck with for years. I guess it’s better than not knowing what to possibly, maybe, sort of expect without it. Finally, why, when there are almost all 1-3-star ratings, is the app showing its a 4.6-star app??????
Was the best until upgraded
by BaronBookworm on 2018/09/10 01:55
The latest update is even worse than the last. Takes forever to open and half the time freezes. Wish they’d go back to the original. It was easy to use. I had really loved it. It always was the most accurate, but this latest update finally did me in. I’m moving on to another app. Previous review: I loved this app. Eventually all my friends and family started using it too as it’s accurate and the options are great. BUT... recent upgrade ruined the ease of use. On my iPad it’s still great (which is why I’m giving it 4 stars), but on iPhone it’s extremely slow to load and can no longer swipe to go to next city. Annoying and just not worth the hassle. I try to use my iPad or Alexa when I’m home. Ive been using it for many years so I hope next upgrade they go back to what worked best or I’ll need to find an alternative for my phone. AND... the amount of ads and “news” videos you have to scroll through are flat out ridiculous now. I don’t mind ads, but the majority of the page is no longer weather. Just because you have a huge following does not mean you have to get greedy.
Easier navigation needed
by Hm1014 on 2018/01/28 14:17
I wish it was a little easier to navigate and find the information I need quicker. The main thing I go to weather apps is to find out how the weather will be for the day and the week. For first time users easy navigation is the key to get them hooked. As time passes they will begin to explore all the neat tools you offer. It’s seems to me I see the day’s forecast and when I try to look for the week I’m bombarded by these crazy breakdown by the hour and pollen in the air , barometer pressures, and I have to scroll for what seems like a eternity to get out of all these crazy breakdowns for just ONE day! and frankly by that time I’m exausted!! And I leave the app. Accuweather on the other hand has tabs which I LOVE and easy to find at the top of the page. Makes it easy to access the information 90% of the population generally needs. Simple tabs and all the extra info is within those tabs as opposed to spread all over the page and having to scroll on and on to move on to the next thing.
Unreadable Now
by SexySweetie18 on 2018/10/09 14:59
I used to love the Weather Channel app. I could do without the ads, but I put up with them. At least the app offered easy to read information at a glance. The newest version has inverted the color scheme, made the font small, and made it a lot more difficult to access the weather on an hourly and daily basis. I miss being able to see my 7 day forecast at a glance. At the very least, I should be able to see the hourly forecast for the day without clicking around multiple times within the app. I actually prefer to use the native Apple weather app because it’s more straightforward. The Weather Channel should give users the option of viewing the app’s content the old way as opposed to claiming that user’s can “just scroll down” for more information. I also prefer the easily recognizable symbols for fog and wind that used to appear. I don’t see the new app as an improvement AT ALL. To the developers: offer other options within the app if you’re unwilling to change it back. I’ve spoken to other users, and I’m not the only one who no longer wants to use your app after the recent updates.
Why change what work?
by Don Montgomery on 2018/12/23 20:28
I had to come back and re-address this!! I noticed some body gave The weather Channel a four star!! If anyone does it’s from the family of the Weather Channel! It’s a fake review from the Weather Channel! Just be honest Weather Channel just fix the problems and quit selling our data!!! Please we all loved you at one time and we need you back in full form and performing as a shining beacon on a lighthouse as our lives and our family lives depends on your performance! Wow did the Weather Channel app ever change from an outstanding app to an awful app! Collecting way too much personal information and sharing it with third parties!!!! Sure hate losing you weather channel!!! I sure hope I can get by without even giving you one star! You’re really turned out to be a disappointment with your new App design being a complete failure and so difficult to navigate… Just so difficult and sharing too much personal information raping us!!! So long my favorite at one time… Happy trails… Yep I could not get by without having to rate you with one star!!!! You do not even deserve the one single star Weather Channel!
Disappointed
by Baby Elliebear on 2018/09/01 15:28
I used to love this app, because it was easy for my elderly family members to understand and showed what the air pressure was at any given time. Now that they have changed it I am constantly getting calls from family asking what is going on and that they cannot follow it. You should have followed the age old statement. “If it is not broken, do not fix it.” Now you have created an app that is anything but user friendly for anyone and you removed important information like air pressure. I know that as I am writing this it will fall on deaf ears, but if you have older friends or family or know people who are not weather savvy, stay away from this app!!!! I really wish that companies would stop changing things to “keep up with the times”. Leave it alone if you have something good. Now I have to hunt for a different resource and on top of that worry about making sure that it does not have a virus attached. I am really disappointed with the Weather Channel team. I have been watching them since they first aired on television when I was a kid and never thought I would see the day that I would turn away from them.
Local on the 8’s

I have loved the weather channel since local on the 8’s. My sister and I would watch as kids to see if we could wear capris in the spring. (Temperature has to be above 65 degrees.)You are still my go to for weather everyday. Your information, radar tracking, and rain alerts are all very helpful. The only reason I give a 4 out of 5 is I’m not a fan of the stark white background. The pictures of the outdoor scenes in the background before this update were quite lovely to open up to in the morning. It made me look forward to getting to know my weather. While the white is clean it just feels cold. The line graph when you open up the app is cool but I find it more informative if the temp numbers were bigger and you could scroll down to see your hourly Temp change rather than clicking through the different sections. Moral of the story coming from a BFA who loves art: bring back the pictures. It makes the people feel good.
Change of Info Needed

I go to this app, because I don’t watch local news and need real time data. I used to watch The Weather Channel, but unless they changed “Your local on the 8’s”, it’s not as helpful as an app might be. As another user mentioned, this app gives too much forecast. It’s rare to have an accurate forecast for today, tomorrow, or the weekend, so why give the outlook for 15 days? What I would like to see is more current and hourly data. Here where I am, humidity is a big issue; a huge issue really. Hourly forecast showing temp AND humidity would be much more useful. The radar would be helpful, if it were easier to load and gave 15 minute intervals for the future cast. The radar for what passed already is really only helpful as far as the path of the weather, so that timeframe probably could be shortened. I like that this app now features “Watson”, because that should be giving better info. Please keep revising this app! I think we all would like it and use it more, if it were improved.
Just because you can change something, doesn’t mean you should

This is definitely not as good as the old Weather Chanel App. I understand software changes are sometimes needed and maybe these changes were needed to support advertising etc. But I don’t understand, why they would move from a platform that had great features, to new one that’s a piece of junk. We were able to see a five day forecast a glance. And if you wanted a longer forecast, a screen swipe showed five more days of forecast. And viewing forecast of multiple city was just as easy. Swipe the screen above the five day forecast and another other city’s forecast popped in. The old app made good use of a single screen view and a tap or swipe made it easy to navigate to forecasts. The latest app tends to jump to a detailed daily screen that must be scrolled vertically to read. It was much easier to scan weather trends horizontally. I’m moving on to another App, until they recognize and reinstitute the quick great features they abandoned. Just because you can change something, doesn’t always mean you should change.
not that great

the weather is accurate so i still use it but the app has flaws: first of all, the stupid videos about things that don’t really have to do with the weather or if they do are not something we need to know about. and they are SO clickbaity. if i wanted to watch the news i would watch the news. second of all, the functionality of the app isn’t that great. i can’t actually change the order of my starred places, i will edit it and then when i click on a location it takes me to the wrong one and nothing ever changed. i would also like to be able to swipe to go to the next location instead of clicking on the sidebar. i would also like the today’s details slide to go more in depth. like say whether a humidity of 80% is high or low, or with the UV index put safety statements if it’s really high. also just tell us if it’s high, right now it just says a number. what’s that number out of? what SPF should i wear? how at risk am i? things like that. also it might do you well to take notes from the weather underground app, i would still be using it if the forecasts were as accurate as this.
