GO BACK TO THE OLD VERSION!!!
by Jerbearipb on 2019/09/17 13:28
When are you going to pay attention to all of the negative reviews and change the app back to the older version everyone loved? Can’t you see these negative ratings? None of the little fixes solve the problems. This app is too busy and too convoluted with junk we don’t need! Users are busy and want to see the 7-day forecast and radar! Could it be you can’t change it until the ad programs you sold expire? And what good are ads that get less eyeballs? Why else wouldn’t you change it back NOW? Luckily I told my husband not to update the app on his phone or the iPad. He picked up my phone the day after the tornadoes and said he couldn’t make heads or tails out of it! I never use it on my phone now. Change this app back to the clear, concise, colorful, uncluttered version it once way and quite monkeying around with something that people hate and doesn’t work!!!!!!!!
One word...Awful.
by Jeffrey Friend on 2019/09/13 12:00
You have to watch 2 silent useless videos and 3 required commercials before getting a real weather forecast. Don't bother downloading. It's a total waste of time.
Needs work still
by SusanMcKa on 2019/08/09 18:18
It often will not change to new data from day to day.
Don’t Like the New Look!
by CityGirlOnTheGo on 2019/08/01 12:38
This used to be my favorite weather app, so much so that I was still using it for local weather while temporarily living out of state this year. Now it’s looks like the weather.com app and that’s not a good thing! It’s hard to read and too many dark colors. Please consider going back to the old simpler easy to read format. Sometimes less is more!!
Latest update epic fail
by Ccassel324 on 2019/07/01 12:43
I used to LOVE the WHIO weather app! Used to being the really important part of that sentence. Now I really don’t like it at all. I am considering going back to the Weather Channel app and I didn’t like it either. It is very hard to find alerts. I don’t want to watch a video about them. I just want to be able to quickly glance at the app to know what’s going on. I also don’t like the announcer that tells me heavy rain is detected in my area. I can see and hear that, and I usually see and hear it before the announcement comes. Where the heck did you guys put the current temperature?!?!? That used to be front and center. That’s what most people want to know. I don’t want to watch all the videos. I want to look at the app and see for myself. I never watched the forecast on the previous version, I’m not starting now. No one in the area that has this app that I have talked to likes it either. Please change it back!!!!!!
Passed up on this app
by Kountrykruiser on 2019/06/28 00:50
Deleted it a while back. If the old app comes back or something better that is not a royal pain or frustrating, please announce it on T.V. Didn’t know there were so many horrible reviews as I thought it was just me. I was ready to come back until I read the reviews. Back to the App Store to try something else as my newest app (A major one) didn’t work out either due to location updating only once every 3 hours and taking way too long to open.
Crashes & locks, ads block display
by Nadger1829 on 2019/06/22 09:41
This app is poorly designed. If you open the app and then open it again after a couple of hours, it crashes with the message “Error unable to display data, check your wifi settings”. I have verified with many of my colleagues that they too are receiving the same message on both ipads and iphones when connected to wifi. There are too many large ads that obscure viewing the information on the screen. I could not even see the hourly forecast because of a huge Quest eseries rider ad. Surely WHIO has enough revenue to make an ad free app. As it stands, there are much better ad free weather apps to use.
Big disappointment
by Goldi1223 on 2019/06/17 01:17
After the constant push to download the WHIO weather app I decided to try it. I have to say that this is the most annoying app I’ve ever worked with. This weekend I was barraged with notifications of severe thunderstorm warnings and tornado watches and warnings. Unfortunately, I have no idea where all this was. When I tried to see the watch or warning, I got a video commercial and that was it. Why can I just read where the warning is? I don’t have time or the inclination to watch a video. This app is way to busy and not useful for me. Time to try something else.
Problems
by Megsmac75 on 2019/06/16 16:22
Among many problems with this new app version, one that sticks out to me is having to watch video to get a “watch” or “warning.” I have a child that is extremely disturbed by storms and it is not convenient to watch a video to find out if we are in a watch or warning. It also highly disturbs me that after a major weather catastrophe like we just had, I would have to try to dodge ads to even see the current conditions for my area. (After all, even that is very difficult to locate on this new app design.) I will give the design one more chance, but I will also be comparing other designs to this because a change maybe necessary. You can’t wait for change to happen that never does when it can mean life or death.
Change Back to the old app
by GinaL. on 2019/06/16 05:30
The alerts are not very loud with this new voice announcement it’s terrible please change back to the old alert at least I could hear the voice announcement across the room. This new one it’s been changed to every since the Tornados hit on Memorial Day is the worst ever not good considering we have Tornado watches tonight and this boring monotone voice doesn’t catch your attention I had to download a different weather app. Please Fix this
Severe weather alerts leave a lot to be desired
by SteveNLola on 2019/06/16 03:27
The color coding on the weather alerts is terrible. I shouldn’t have to compare and contrast in a moment of urgency to determine watch vs warning vs t-storm vs tornado. Nor should I have to sit through an ad before can view the “tornado warning in your area” video. And please help me understand why I can’t tap a warning box on the radar and actually read the information about the warning.
Update ruined this app
by ohiojem on 2019/06/16 01:21
I get an alert now and open the app and the first thing I get is an ad that I have to wait through to even get the specifics. Guess that warning isn’t as important as whatever is being advertised. Now I have to hunt for a new app
Whio weather app
by Newer isnt necessarily better on 2019/06/16 00:17
The new interface is less friendly. It’s cluttered. The new version of the app is “buggy” and frequently generates location errors. This upgrade has given me a reason to look for a better app. I’d take the old version over this. I’m confident something better is out there since the old version was better.
Horrible!!!
by OHMOM3 on 2019/06/08 21:46
They have changed the APP and it’s absolutely horrible. It works have the time and it’s NEVER accurate. I will be deleting this APP from my IPhone XR now.
Deleted
by jlkid11 on 2019/06/05 20:28
I’ve had the WHIO weather app for as long as I can remember. The constant notifications are way too much. I woke up to a notification this morning asking if the storms last night woke me up. Every time a rain drop is about to fall, I get a ridiculous amount of notifications that typically blow the forecast way out of proportion.
Weather War bugs Don’t Work
by iphoneWamy on 2019/05/29 23:54
Overall the app seemed decent enough until the tornadoes a few days ago. That’s when I found out that the weather alerts don’t work. It doesn’t matter how many locations I add, the app claims that I don’t have any locations set so I cannot turn on weather alerts. Since I have turned off the built in weather app, I didn’t get any warnings. Good thing I was watching TV at my friends house that night or I never would have known what was heading toward us.
Please bring back the old app!!!
by Cokefloat36 on 2019/05/22 02:13
Please bring back the old app! I was able to navigate the old app every day with ease. Now that the update has occurred, its hard to navigate around. I have uninstalled the app and won’t re-install until the old one returns. Meanwhile, I will Google the weather.
WHIO Weather
by Auntbeth2318 on 2019/05/20 02:50
I give no stars, a few weeks ago, app was working fine. You had an update, now it won’t come up. Tried to delete and reinstall but it will not install. I depend on this app for my weather and this time of year cannot be without it. Not a very happy user.
Change it back!!
by Kenzie998875 on 2019/05/20 01:41
I have used this app daily for years and loved it, up until recently when you updated it. Half the time it doesn’t work, it’s constantly crashing, and was much easier to navigate and understand before. I also used to receive notifications every time it rained, stormed etc. and now I don’t get anything. I wish more than anything you’d change back to how it was!
Go back to the old app
by Graecellen on 2019/05/12 19:00
This one freezes up, is too awkward to understand, and consistently tell me there are WiFi issues when everything else on my phone is working just fine. I used the old app for several years and loved it. I am now going to delete this app and go to weather channel app. I didn’t want to have to do it but I give up.
Very poor
by Morganovich on 2019/05/04 19:00
This has to be the most miserable weather site in existence. Full of ads when other weather apps are ad free. It is also slow and occasionally does not even work.
Change is not always good
by maxsmemaw on 2019/05/03 12:59
I deleted your app because it was too busy, too hard to read. I liked the old clear concise app. Today I tried it again, it’s better. But I still liked the old one better.
Hard to see, background too busy
by ?Bonay?? on 2019/05/03 01:19
Would like option to change background color. The current color makes forecast hard to see. Also, app keeps crashing. About every two days I have to delete and reinstall.
The Map
by OSUNUT-TRAV24 on 2019/05/01 01:00
The mad upgrade is good but the weather alerts are confusing, the Tornado Warnings and the Severe Thunderstorm warnings boxes are similar. Need to make them the old colors but the map is better
Fail
by Vanc123 on 2019/04/27 17:41
Changing an app is not always an improvement. Several issues have ruined this app. 1) It is too busy, too many categories, too many videos (who wants to have to stop what they’re doing to watch a video?) 2) Ads...the biggest pain for all app users. Too many ads, often splashed right over content, very distracting, and the user is forced to endure the ads by accepting them or go through an Ad Preference exercise (meaning you WILL see distracting ads, like it or not) 3) Weather warnings seem to have disappeared, did not happen at all during a recent tornado warning 4) An app is supposed to make things easier and streamlined, a simpler user experience. This app fails in that category.
No tornado warning alert
by Angie(MillerTime) on 2019/04/26 02:25
We just had a tornado warning where I live, but even though my push notifications are all active and everything in the settings is set up fine, I never received any tornado warning alert through the app. Luckily I heard the sirens and saw it on channel 7 when I turned the TV on, but I'm about to move a little further out into the country, so I'm not going to be able to rely on any siren.
Please bring back the old version!
by Jeff K P on 2019/04/20 11:16
Please bring back the old version of this weather app! This new version is too busy and hard to navigate on the go. I don’t like the new radar view either. I find myself using the Weather Underground app more these days as it is easy to navigate and very accurate on hourly forecast with wind speed/direction and a bar graph of hourly precipitation - easy quick view. Please bring back the old version of this app. FYI- I’ve been using WHIO Weather app for 5 plus years.
Look great, but
by Wpbedb1 on 2019/04/18 22:38
The app works and looks great except it will not do landscape mode on my iPad which is how I view everything. Very difficult to use when everything is sideways so are use other apps instead.
Something went horribly wrong with this app
by WarEagle0028 on 2019/04/18 20:26
I have used this app for several years now and have always enjoyed it. However, since this new update has been done it is always freezing and not updating to current weather conditions. It asks to retry literally every 5 seconds and doesn’t work with either WiFi or LTE. Idk what the deal is here but it needs to be looked into. I hate not being able to use it as it is my local weather channel.
User former
by jodie3687436 on 2019/04/14 11:52
I used to use this app a lot. The recent change to it is horrible I will no longer use this app I suggest that others don't either
Too much info and awful background map
by sad CW on 2019/04/13 15:24
I’m never going to take the time to watch a video when I can go to the hourly page instead. Also, hate the satellite background and have been unable to see where to change it even after reading the directions in the help article. I miss the old version.
New app is awful
by Sole 49 on 2019/04/13 15:11
The new app is awful. I don’t need commercials. The old app was perfect. It gave all the important information on the first page. I did not need to scroll down to find the five day forecast. Whoever is responsible should have his hands locked in iron mittens so he cannot use a keyboard.
Hate the update
by kenpodoc1 on 2019/04/08 23:04
This app went from clean and quick to being a new barrage of ads with weather less clear
Horrible
by mom440 on 2019/04/07 08:43
I much preferred the old app. This one is riddled with annoying ads that you can’t clear. The old was simple to see the forecast with hour by hour forecast as well. Please redesign to be more like the old without the annoyance of those ads everywhere and quick weekly forecasts at a glance!
I like it
by joy7500 on 2019/04/06 20:30
Took me some time to figure it all out lol but I love the fresh new look
Lousy
by Geeeez. on 2019/04/06 10:46
Old app worked great for a quick ref for glofers, etc. WAY TOO much data. Want old app back!
Newly Revised Weather App
by Oscar Meyer VV on 2019/04/05 21:53
First of all, I have to say that you have always been my favorite weather station! And, I really liked the previous design of the App. Don’t really like the new one. I’ll continue to WATCH the weather report on Channel 7 but won’t use the Weather App except to get alerts! Don’t see this as an improvement! Sorry!
Much better - beats weather channel
by mobartz on 2019/04/03 11:09
This new version is clean and has all the information that I need on one place. It is also quick to load. The hourly and daily views are great, and the radar is nice because it shows the names of local towns. Well done!
Do not like the new design.
by what nickname not talen on 2019/04/01 23:08
Do not care for the video. And the ads which pop up in middle of the screen. I am removing from my phone.
Downgraded!
by eye95 on 2019/04/01 11:59
New app is a downgrade, not an upgrade. 1. No 48-hour hour-by-hour forecast, which is the tool I used the most. 2. Clutter. The iPad screen is filled with too much information in too small a type. 3. Tiny white letters on a light background. 4. App should use overviews that can be tapped for more information rather than trying to crowd everything onto the page—and leaving some important information out completely (like 48-hour hour-by-hour). 5. Scrolling to find information is annoying. Taps to expand, not scrolls to search for information. I used to use the app several times a day. Now I am going to try to find another.
Hate the new design
by ortm987 on 2019/03/31 14:43
Go back to the old design. Important info was all on home screen with adds at bottom. FYI preview is old screen not new design. New design need to scroll through pages with adds popping up in middle of what you were looking for. This redesign was obviously done for adds and not user.
Weather revision
by Ms Too much to do on 2019/03/31 07:12
I prefer the old! I don’t want to listen to anything! Takes too much time which no one has these days. I like to see what I need with a glance. I also like the option to enter other zip codes and get the forecast at a glance. why does everyone think bigger is better. I liked it the way it was....quick and easy!!!!!!
Color
by DDN I quit on 2019/03/30 13:50
I am color blind. The new map doesn’t seem to have the option to turn off the terrain. The terrain background makes it difficult to follow the weather for me n
Cumbersome
by Shayne222 on 2019/03/30 12:25
The new layout is cumbersome, cluttered, and not user friendly. The old version was better, everything was instantly accessible, simple to navigate and displaying current weather as well as future forecasts (including, by the hour). I’m now considering a different app.
The old format was perfect
by UDFlyer77 on 2019/03/29 14:22
Often I could see exactly what I wanted with zero scrolling. With this “upgrade” the only information visible without scrolling is the current temperature. Too many ads. Too much scrolling. Too much clutter. Please give me an option to go back to the old format. You fixed what wasn’t broken.
Problem using with an iPad
by steved937 on 2019/03/29 07:22
I use an iPad in landscape mode, and the old version used to adjust for that. The new version will only come up in portrait mode. Is there a setting I am missing? This is my only app with this problem.
Love the new design
by Mizmeemster1876 on 2019/03/28 14:05
While I love the new design, I would like the option to hide the video forecast, or the option to customize what I want shown on the main screen. I would also pay a small fee to remove ads. Otherwise the weather app is pretty accurate, and works fast.

Ads-R-Bad, m-K?
by FinnishFanny on 2019/02/01 03:07
Ads are taking up too much of the screen. Real mood killer. I clicked on one, then tried to get back to the app and could no longer interact with it. Had to kill it and re-start. Is the ad revenue worth user frustration?? ALSO, please improve Closings & Delays e.g. Location Categories, Filter by Town, etc. And please ADD SEARCH 🔍 in the main screen!!
Inconsistent
by Commutiingsucks on 2019/01/19 23:49
Often the rain percentage for the day does not even come close to the hour by hour percentages. Radar on app does not match the radar on the actual TV news weather
Am I the only one?
by notagoober on 2018/10/02 20:33
I love getting an alert when there’s heavy rain in my area. Unfortunately, almost every time I hear that alert, I freeze and look around for a rattlesnake!
Weather has not been showing up
by ChanBranMan on 2018/08/30 15:28
It’s been a few weeks now and nothing shows up. I uninstalled and reinstalled and that didn’t work. Very disappointed since this was my favorite weather app.
Great weather app
by EmmaHeartDogs on 2018/08/08 03:37
this app is a really great weather app. i honestly have no complaints
?
by ChucklingWilma on 2018/07/31 00:19
How do I switch the thing to Fahrenheit? Apparently it will be in the high 30s all week here in San Antonio, TX. There is nothing on my phone settings or the application to change it. UPDATE! Well, I’m deleting it. I don’t read Celsius. Works fine on my iPad. 5 stars for the ipad.

Good for a check of the weather
by Th3viking on 2016/09/29 14:55
I like the alerts and easy access to the radar. One thing I would like to see would be a recording of the five day forecast put on there daily. I like watching the weather. But don't always have time in the mornings to watch tv.
Not as good as Others
by agmilliron on 2016/09/26 13:23
Overall, I like the app... I use several weather apps, and this compares well with the others. However, the notifications with the sound effects is quite annoying... specifically the heavy rain notification. It's too loud.
who else is downloading this to keep track of this crazy storm tonight??
by Wadddupppdoeitsyagurllie on 2016/06/23 06:10
I know I am !!
What Weather Channel does better
by Ironwood78 on 2016/06/21 13:32
WHIO Weather is more accurate, but with the Weather Channel app's hourly forecast I can check the hourly humidity, the wind speed, and it takes most of the screen so I can tell whether or not to expect thunderstorms or rain. WHIO's hourly forecast only takes the lower third of the screen and its weather icons are too small.
Now she don't work
by Cad one oh oh on 2016/03/23 14:32
I have iPhone 4s with IOS 7.1.2. I paid for the upgraded notifications. And now I can not get it to even start.
Do not download on iPhone 4
by Frankdawg15 on 2015/10/22 08:29
This app is junk on an iPhone 4. Locks up phone and have to reboot to close it. WHIOtv, please go back to the previous version!!
Local weather
by RachelSean2006 on 2015/10/02 04:40
Wanted for local weather. Constantly freezes on me. Sometimes the app will not open at all. I'm not sure why I have not yet un installed it.
Radar
by Tjkvb on 2015/09/29 19:57
Radar view is not very useful, already deleted the app.
Poor Preformance
by Mace2455 on 2015/09/28 19:13
Not worth downloading current version.
New version is terrible!
by Spinmaxx on 2015/09/25 20:08
The old app worked great, it was simple and had the info I needed. Now, of course, the egotistical local weather guys have to put a huge picture of themselves on the app when you open it. I need to know what the weather looks like, I don't need to know what the Meteorologists look like. Also, just like any other free website or app, they have overloaded it with ads.
Worst app I have installed
by Golferchuck on 2015/09/11 21:46
Worst app I have installed for my Apple devices. Hard to use and very buggy.
Not Impressed!!!
by JDoe#1 on 2015/09/10 18:22
Good look, but I'm not impressed with the app over all. The older app was more user friendly.
BUGS!!!
by ac_dennis87 on 2015/09/09 04:02
It has some major bugs. Everytime I open it, it glitches and freezes my whole phone to the point that I have to restart it.
Horrible
by Rosie9914 on 2015/09/04 17:34
They ruined a perfectly great little app that followed the KISS principle...arrrgh!
Great Look!
by Scantrell88 on 2015/09/04 01:34
This update is great, good look and feel to the app. Only complaint I have is that I keep setting my alerts and they seem to keep defaulting back to the selected options before I updated the alerts. Fix the alerts and this is 5 stars hands down.
Not a fan.
by zumphry on 2015/09/02 23:44
The previous version of WHIOWeather was fine. It wasn't *great* per se, but aside from having to tap the "<" chevron a few times to see the basement menu, there weren't huge problems. The newest version, however, is full of them. The main forecast screen is so visually busy that it's hard to parse anything. While having the current forecast video front and center (not to mention, actually in the app) is nice, having the current host's bust be 25% of the screen is a downright awful decision for any iPhone screen size. Rich and Eric and everyone else are great meteorologists, but currently, I'm having flashbacks to Clippy in Microsoft Word. Likewise, while the interactive radar is much better, the Live Doppler 7 HD stream (and I assume 7 Weather Now stream as well) ALWAYS having an ad auto-play is insulting and a dangerous decision when it comes to trying to determine where storm cells/lines are ASAP (since the interactive radar is still not an actual live radar). The ads at the bottom of the screen were bad enough, but fine, free app = ads. But I literally just got redirected to Trivago's app store page, which never happened in the previous version. While the layout could honestly stay the same, please at least remove the auto-play ads at the beginning of the livestreams. 7Weather Now already has ads on it, and the app is the only way to view the live radar livestream. I've honestly gone back to the previous version, and I hope the current version is fixed by the time the previous version is deactivated, similar to how the previous WHIONews app supposedly doesn't work anymore. I'm sorry for the long, negative review, but this updates is so disappointing. Stormcenter 7 is the only local weather team I respect and trust, and I honestly expect a better app to reflect their work.
Horrible Revision
by Whoruu on 2015/09/02 20:19
There are ads just below the navigation buttons at the bottom. This is clearly set up to cause accidental click throughs. It happened to me twice before I uninstalled it.
Greatly improved in this release
by Meteor71 on 2015/09/02 16:49
The WHIO weather app has been greatly improved in this release. Its contents are better organized. It's graphics and layout are much improved. The design of the radar is better, less confusing. Access to WHIO feeds on Facebook and Twitter are retained, a big plus in this app as it means that you can use it to get traffic updates as well. And, of course, you can still specify multiple locations in addition to your "current" location. This version of the WHIO Weather app is well worth the download.
Great app
by Candy pop 2014 on 2015/07/14 16:50
Love it
Need to change some things
by Cmiller2004 on 2015/04/10 03:35
Need to change the app setting to where it only uses my location while I'm using the app. I hate apps that use my location in the background. I deleted it before because of this very reason! It drains my battery when I have to leave the location on. Only downloaded it again for the weather moving in tonight. After which I will delete again!
Updated Review
by Gmq54 on 2015/04/08 17:33
I had deleted this app because I wasn't getting the warnings. I reinstalled the app this morning and I got my weather warnings (4-8-2015). The app now appears in the locations services area and that was the problem.
Not bad
by Zaosod on 2015/03/26 05:27
Pretty good weather app. Could use some improvements though. the ads are also pretty annoying
Problem

This app will keep you GPS on at all times and drain your battery. It should be programmed to only use GPS while the application is in use. Once you fix that I will download again.

It won't let me download the new update, 1st time this ever happen! :( please help! :)
What happened to hourly?
by Andrea69! on 2014/09/30 20:46
It is a good app but the most recent update took away the hourly report. What happened?
Usually love it...
by Hidbarnes on 2014/09/30 19:00
...but since the upgrade, I can't see the hourly forecast.
Glad it's back!
by Perry3D on 2014/09/27 21:30
This is the 1st app I always open when having my morning coffee. Glad it's working, again.
Need to Be Worked On

Since the Apple Upgrade this App won't. Come on WHIO upgrade your App so it be used again.😭
Crashes every time
by Pameeds on 2014/09/24 02:39
Upgraded to ios8 and the app will no longer work
Crashes every time
by womenRevil on 2014/09/19 14:28
I upgraded to IOS 8, and now this app will not work. I tried uninstalling, and reinstalling but still crashes every time.....it's not like they didn't realize that the operating system was going to be updated, come on fellas, get on the ball. iPad 3 with 32 gigs of memory.
Awesome app
by Taco truck dude on 2014/05/12 23:33
It helped me find out about the weather a lot and more people should buy it it is awesome
Awesome

Lifesaving Warnings!
by Superior Warnings on 2014/02/25 21:43
I was nearly asleep when this App sounded the warning a tornado was in the area! I was immediately able to pull up Channel 7's live stream right on my phone and follow Jamie's coverage! EVERYONE needs this lifesaving tool. Thanks to the app, I know now I'll never be surprised by dangerous weather! Thanks, WHIO!
Useless
by Cdr42 on 2014/01/21 13:43
This app is useless. It will not load, goes to blank home screen and freezes.
The ONLY weather app to have for Dayton Area
by Kayla #1 on 2014/01/21 10:32
This is my number one go to app for local weather. Easy to use and understand. Best radar in the valley.
No content
by u21queen on 2014/01/07 22:06
I downloaded the latest update and now the home screen is there but no content and I cannot navigate to the other tabs. I have deleted it and use my Intellicast app.
Nicely done!
by TheaOH on 2014/01/03 14:43
Really, really nice job with this app - thank you! Everything I want about my local weather is right here, and in a package that works beautifully. Well done!

New version still crashes. Yes I have ISO 5.1.1.
new version
by littlehitlerp on 2013/07/24 16:06
new version last week make the program crash. I notified whio several times and they tell me to remove and download again. I did that every day this week and it still crashes. maybe they should put the old version back until they can get the new one working!
Latest update epic fail
by Ccassel324 on 2019/07/01 12:43
I used to LOVE the WHIO weather app! Used to being the really important part of that sentence. Now I really don’t like it at all. I am considering going back to the Weather Channel app and I didn’t like it either. It is very hard to find alerts. I don’t want to watch a video about them. I just want to be able to quickly glance at the app to know what’s going on. I also don’t like the announcer that tells me heavy rain is detected in my area. I can see and hear that, and I usually see and hear it before the announcement comes. Where the heck did you guys put the current temperature?!?!? That used to be front and center. That’s what most people want to know. I don’t want to watch all the videos. I want to look at the app and see for myself. I never watched the forecast on the previous version, I’m not starting now. No one in the area that has this app that I have talked to likes it either. Please change it back!!!!!!
Change is not always good
by maxsmemaw on 2019/05/03 12:59
I deleted your app because it was too busy, too hard to read. I liked the old clear concise app. Today I tried it again, it’s better. But I still liked the old one better.
GO BACK TO THE OLD VERSION!!!
by Jerbearipb on 2019/09/17 13:28
When are you going to pay attention to all of the negative reviews and change the app back to the older version everyone loved? Can’t you see these negative ratings? None of the little fixes solve the problems. This app is too busy and too convoluted with junk we don’t need! Users are busy and want to see the 7-day forecast and radar! Could it be you can’t change it until the ad programs you sold expire? And what good are ads that get less eyeballs? Why else wouldn’t you change it back NOW? Luckily I told my husband not to update the app on his phone or the iPad. He picked up my phone the day after the tornadoes and said he couldn’t make heads or tails out of it! I never use it on my phone now. Change this app back to the clear, concise, colorful, uncluttered version it once way and quite monkeying around with something that people hate and doesn’t work!!!!!!!!
Problems
by Megsmac75 on 2019/06/16 16:22
Among many problems with this new app version, one that sticks out to me is having to watch video to get a “watch” or “warning.” I have a child that is extremely disturbed by storms and it is not convenient to watch a video to find out if we are in a watch or warning. It also highly disturbs me that after a major weather catastrophe like we just had, I would have to try to dodge ads to even see the current conditions for my area. (After all, even that is very difficult to locate on this new app design.) I will give the design one more chance, but I will also be comparing other designs to this because a change maybe necessary. You can’t wait for change to happen that never does when it can mean life or death.
Fail
by Vanc123 on 2019/04/27 17:41
Changing an app is not always an improvement. Several issues have ruined this app. 1) It is too busy, too many categories, too many videos (who wants to have to stop what they’re doing to watch a video?) 2) Ads...the biggest pain for all app users. Too many ads, often splashed right over content, very distracting, and the user is forced to endure the ads by accepting them or go through an Ad Preference exercise (meaning you WILL see distracting ads, like it or not) 3) Weather warnings seem to have disappeared, did not happen at all during a recent tornado warning 4) An app is supposed to make things easier and streamlined, a simpler user experience. This app fails in that category.
Crashes & locks, ads block display
by Nadger1829 on 2019/06/22 09:41
This app is poorly designed. If you open the app and then open it again after a couple of hours, it crashes with the message “Error unable to display data, check your wifi settings”. I have verified with many of my colleagues that they too are receiving the same message on both ipads and iphones when connected to wifi. There are too many large ads that obscure viewing the information on the screen. I could not even see the hourly forecast because of a huge Quest eseries rider ad. Surely WHIO has enough revenue to make an ad free app. As it stands, there are much better ad free weather apps to use.
Big disappointment
by Goldi1223 on 2019/06/17 01:17
After the constant push to download the WHIO weather app I decided to try it. I have to say that this is the most annoying app I’ve ever worked with. This weekend I was barraged with notifications of severe thunderstorm warnings and tornado watches and warnings. Unfortunately, I have no idea where all this was. When I tried to see the watch or warning, I got a video commercial and that was it. Why can I just read where the warning is? I don’t have time or the inclination to watch a video. This app is way to busy and not useful for me. Time to try something else.
Passed up on this app
by Kountrykruiser on 2019/06/28 00:50
Deleted it a while back. If the old app comes back or something better that is not a royal pain or frustrating, please announce it on T.V. Didn’t know there were so many horrible reviews as I thought it was just me. I was ready to come back until I read the reviews. Back to the App Store to try something else as my newest app (A major one) didn’t work out either due to location updating only once every 3 hours and taking way too long to open.
Weather War bugs Don’t Work
by iphoneWamy on 2019/05/29 23:54
Overall the app seemed decent enough until the tornadoes a few days ago. That’s when I found out that the weather alerts don’t work. It doesn’t matter how many locations I add, the app claims that I don’t have any locations set so I cannot turn on weather alerts. Since I have turned off the built in weather app, I didn’t get any warnings. Good thing I was watching TV at my friends house that night or I never would have known what was heading toward us.
Change Back to the old app
by GinaL. on 2019/06/16 05:30
The alerts are not very loud with this new voice announcement it’s terrible please change back to the old alert at least I could hear the voice announcement across the room. This new one it’s been changed to every since the Tornados hit on Memorial Day is the worst ever not good considering we have Tornado watches tonight and this boring monotone voice doesn’t catch your attention I had to download a different weather app. Please Fix this
Severe weather alerts leave a lot to be desired
by SteveNLola on 2019/06/16 03:27
The color coding on the weather alerts is terrible. I shouldn’t have to compare and contrast in a moment of urgency to determine watch vs warning vs t-storm vs tornado. Nor should I have to sit through an ad before can view the “tornado warning in your area” video. And please help me understand why I can’t tap a warning box on the radar and actually read the information about the warning.
Change it back!!
by Kenzie998875 on 2019/05/20 01:41
I have used this app daily for years and loved it, up until recently when you updated it. Half the time it doesn’t work, it’s constantly crashing, and was much easier to navigate and understand before. I also used to receive notifications every time it rained, stormed etc. and now I don’t get anything. I wish more than anything you’d change back to how it was!
No tornado warning alert
by Angie(MillerTime) on 2019/04/26 02:25
We just had a tornado warning where I live, but even though my push notifications are all active and everything in the settings is set up fine, I never received any tornado warning alert through the app. Luckily I heard the sirens and saw it on channel 7 when I turned the TV on, but I'm about to move a little further out into the country, so I'm not going to be able to rely on any siren.
Go back to the old app
by Graecellen on 2019/05/12 19:00
This one freezes up, is too awkward to understand, and consistently tell me there are WiFi issues when everything else on my phone is working just fine. I used the old app for several years and loved it. I am now going to delete this app and go to weather channel app. I didn’t want to have to do it but I give up.
Whio weather app
by Newer isnt necessarily better on 2019/06/16 00:17
The new interface is less friendly. It’s cluttered. The new version of the app is “buggy” and frequently generates location errors. This upgrade has given me a reason to look for a better app. I’d take the old version over this. I’m confident something better is out there since the old version was better.
Deleted
by jlkid11 on 2019/06/05 20:28
I’ve had the WHIO weather app for as long as I can remember. The constant notifications are way too much. I woke up to a notification this morning asking if the storms last night woke me up. Every time a rain drop is about to fall, I get a ridiculous amount of notifications that typically blow the forecast way out of proportion.
Please bring back the old app!!!
by Cokefloat36 on 2019/05/22 02:13
Please bring back the old app! I was able to navigate the old app every day with ease. Now that the update has occurred, its hard to navigate around. I have uninstalled the app and won’t re-install until the old one returns. Meanwhile, I will Google the weather.
Needs work still
by SusanMcKa on 2019/08/09 18:18
It often will not change to new data from day to day.
Hard to see, background too busy
by ?Bonay?? on 2019/05/03 01:19
Would like option to change background color. The current color makes forecast hard to see. Also, app keeps crashing. About every two days I have to delete and reinstall.
WHIO Weather
by Auntbeth2318 on 2019/05/20 02:50
I give no stars, a few weeks ago, app was working fine. You had an update, now it won’t come up. Tried to delete and reinstall but it will not install. I depend on this app for my weather and this time of year cannot be without it. Not a very happy user.
Update ruined this app
by ohiojem on 2019/06/16 01:21
I get an alert now and open the app and the first thing I get is an ad that I have to wait through to even get the specifics. Guess that warning isn’t as important as whatever is being advertised. Now I have to hunt for a new app
Very poor
by Morganovich on 2019/05/04 19:00
This has to be the most miserable weather site in existence. Full of ads when other weather apps are ad free. It is also slow and occasionally does not even work.
The Map
by OSUNUT-TRAV24 on 2019/05/01 01:00
The mad upgrade is good but the weather alerts are confusing, the Tornado Warnings and the Severe Thunderstorm warnings boxes are similar. Need to make them the old colors but the map is better
Need to change some things
by Cmiller2004 on 2015/04/10 03:35
Need to change the app setting to where it only uses my location while I'm using the app. I hate apps that use my location in the background. I deleted it before because of this very reason! It drains my battery when I have to leave the location on. Only downloaded it again for the weather moving in tonight. After which I will delete again!
One word...Awful.
by Jeffrey Friend on 2019/09/13 12:00
You have to watch 2 silent useless videos and 3 required commercials before getting a real weather forecast. Don't bother downloading. It's a total waste of time.
Horrible!!!
by OHMOM3 on 2019/06/08 21:46
They have changed the APP and it’s absolutely horrible. It works have the time and it’s NEVER accurate. I will be deleting this APP from my IPhone XR now.
Greatly improved in this release
by Meteor71 on 2015/09/02 16:49
The WHIO weather app has been greatly improved in this release. Its contents are better organized. It's graphics and layout are much improved. The design of the radar is better, less confusing. Access to WHIO feeds on Facebook and Twitter are retained, a big plus in this app as it means that you can use it to get traffic updates as well. And, of course, you can still specify multiple locations in addition to your "current" location. This version of the WHIO Weather app is well worth the download.
Very Good, Except .....
by Jon_DBS on 2013/03/10 13:20
I think WHIO has done a great job with this weather app. The only issue I have is the information is not up to date. Foe example the temperature currently is 50 degrees yet the app says it is 29 with a wind chill of 20 degrees. Not sure what triggers a refresh as I have found no button or setting to trigger an update. Other than the fact you do not know the accuracy of the data (today is easy as it is not 29 degrees) it is a great app. Keep up the good work!
Please bring back the old version!
by Jeff K P on 2019/04/20 11:16
Please bring back the old version of this weather app! This new version is too busy and hard to navigate on the go. I don’t like the new radar view either. I find myself using the Weather Underground app more these days as it is easy to navigate and very accurate on hourly forecast with wind speed/direction and a bar graph of hourly precipitation - easy quick view. Please bring back the old version of this app. FYI- I’ve been using WHIO Weather app for 5 plus years.
Something went horribly wrong with this app
by WarEagle0028 on 2019/04/18 20:26
I have used this app for several years now and have always enjoyed it. However, since this new update has been done it is always freezing and not updating to current weather conditions. It asks to retry literally every 5 seconds and doesn’t work with either WiFi or LTE. Idk what the deal is here but it needs to be looked into. I hate not being able to use it as it is my local weather channel.
Too much info and awful background map
by sad CW on 2019/04/13 15:24
I’m never going to take the time to watch a video when I can go to the hourly page instead. Also, hate the satellite background and have been unable to see where to change it even after reading the directions in the help article. I miss the old version.
Lifesaving Warnings!
by Superior Warnings on 2014/02/25 21:43
I was nearly asleep when this App sounded the warning a tornado was in the area! I was immediately able to pull up Channel 7's live stream right on my phone and follow Jamie's coverage! EVERYONE needs this lifesaving tool. Thanks to the app, I know now I'll never be surprised by dangerous weather! Thanks, WHIO!
Good for a check of the weather
by Th3viking on 2016/09/29 14:55
I like the alerts and easy access to the radar. One thing I would like to see would be a recording of the five day forecast put on there daily. I like watching the weather. But don't always have time in the mornings to watch tv.
Not as good as Others
by agmilliron on 2016/09/26 13:23
Overall, I like the app... I use several weather apps, and this compares well with the others. However, the notifications with the sound effects is quite annoying... specifically the heavy rain notification. It's too loud.
Great Look!
by Scantrell88 on 2015/09/04 01:34
This update is great, good look and feel to the app. Only complaint I have is that I keep setting my alerts and they seem to keep defaulting back to the selected options before I updated the alerts. Fix the alerts and this is 5 stars hands down.
Much better - beats weather channel
by mobartz on 2019/04/03 11:09
This new version is clean and has all the information that I need on one place. It is also quick to load. The hourly and daily views are great, and the radar is nice because it shows the names of local towns. Well done!
Love the new design
by Mizmeemster1876 on 2019/03/28 14:05
While I love the new design, I would like the option to hide the video forecast, or the option to customize what I want shown on the main screen. I would also pay a small fee to remove ads. Otherwise the weather app is pretty accurate, and works fast.
What Weather Channel does better
by Ironwood78 on 2016/06/21 13:32
WHIO Weather is more accurate, but with the Weather Channel app's hourly forecast I can check the hourly humidity, the wind speed, and it takes most of the screen so I can tell whether or not to expect thunderstorms or rain. WHIO's hourly forecast only takes the lower third of the screen and its weather icons are too small.
Downgraded!
by eye95 on 2019/04/01 11:59
New app is a downgrade, not an upgrade. 1. No 48-hour hour-by-hour forecast, which is the tool I used the most. 2. Clutter. The iPad screen is filled with too much information in too small a type. 3. Tiny white letters on a light background. 4. App should use overviews that can be tapped for more information rather than trying to crowd everything onto the page—and leaving some important information out completely (like 48-hour hour-by-hour). 5. Scrolling to find information is annoying. Taps to expand, not scrolls to search for information. I used to use the app several times a day. Now I am going to try to find another.
Ads-R-Bad, m-K?
by FinnishFanny on 2019/02/01 03:07
Ads are taking up too much of the screen. Real mood killer. I clicked on one, then tried to get back to the app and could no longer interact with it. Had to kill it and re-start. Is the ad revenue worth user frustration?? ALSO, please improve Closings & Delays e.g. Location Categories, Filter by Town, etc. And please ADD SEARCH 🔍 in the main screen!!
New version is terrible!
by Spinmaxx on 2015/09/25 20:08
The old app worked great, it was simple and had the info I needed. Now, of course, the egotistical local weather guys have to put a huge picture of themselves on the app when you open it. I need to know what the weather looks like, I don't need to know what the Meteorologists look like. Also, just like any other free website or app, they have overloaded it with ads.
Nicely done!
by TheaOH on 2014/01/03 14:43
Really, really nice job with this app - thank you! Everything I want about my local weather is right here, and in a package that works beautifully. Well done!
Look great, but
by Wpbedb1 on 2019/04/18 22:38
The app works and looks great except it will not do landscape mode on my iPad which is how I view everything. Very difficult to use when everything is sideways so are use other apps instead.
Beautiful app
by Buckeyestar on 2013/01/29 14:18
This is my favorite weather app for the iPad thus far. I've tried Weather Channel and Weatherbug, but was never really satisfied. Granted, this is only for the Miami Valley area, but that's all I need.
Glad it's back!
by Perry3D on 2014/09/27 21:30
This is the 1st app I always open when having my morning coffee. Glad it's working, again.

Weather revision
by Ms Too much to do on 2019/03/31 07:12
I prefer the old! I don’t want to listen to anything! Takes too much time which no one has these days. I like to see what I need with a glance. I also like the option to enter other zip codes and get the forecast at a glance. why does everyone think bigger is better. I liked it the way it was....quick and easy!!!!!!
Am I the only one?
by notagoober on 2018/10/02 20:33
I love getting an alert when there’s heavy rain in my area. Unfortunately, almost every time I hear that alert, I freeze and look around for a rattlesnake!

The new version was updated but when try to open it closes and quits right away. Was a nice app

by CityGirlOnTheGo on 2019/08/01 12:38
This used to be my favorite weather app, so much so that I was still using it for local weather while temporarily living out of state this year. Now it’s looks like the weather.com app and that’s not a good thing! It’s hard to read and too many dark colors. Please consider going back to the old simpler easy to read format. Sometimes less is more!!

by Kountrykruiser on 2019/06/28 00:50
Deleted it a while back. If the old app comes back or something better that is not a royal pain or frustrating, please announce it on T.V. Didn’t know there were so many horrible reviews as I thought it was just me. I was ready to come back until I read the reviews. Back to the App Store to try something else as my newest app (A major one) didn’t work out either due to location updating only once every 3 hours and taking way too long to open.
Crashes & locks, ads block display
by Nadger1829 on 2019/06/22 09:41
This app is poorly designed. If you open the app and then open it again after a couple of hours, it crashes with the message “Error unable to display data, check your wifi settings”. I have verified with many of my colleagues that they too are receiving the same message on both ipads and iphones when connected to wifi. There are too many large ads that obscure viewing the information on the screen. I could not even see the hourly forecast because of a huge Quest eseries rider ad. Surely WHIO has enough revenue to make an ad free app. As it stands, there are much better ad free weather apps to use.
Big disappointment
by Goldi1223 on 2019/06/17 01:17
After the constant push to download the WHIO weather app I decided to try it. I have to say that this is the most annoying app I’ve ever worked with. This weekend I was barraged with notifications of severe thunderstorm warnings and tornado watches and warnings. Unfortunately, I have no idea where all this was. When I tried to see the watch or warning, I got a video commercial and that was it. Why can I just read where the warning is? I don’t have time or the inclination to watch a video. This app is way to busy and not useful for me. Time to try something else.
Problems
by Megsmac75 on 2019/06/16 16:22
Among many problems with this new app version, one that sticks out to me is having to watch video to get a “watch” or “warning.” I have a child that is extremely disturbed by storms and it is not convenient to watch a video to find out if we are in a watch or warning. It also highly disturbs me that after a major weather catastrophe like we just had, I would have to try to dodge ads to even see the current conditions for my area. (After all, even that is very difficult to locate on this new app design.) I will give the design one more chance, but I will also be comparing other designs to this because a change maybe necessary. You can’t wait for change to happen that never does when it can mean life or death.
Change Back to the old app
by GinaL. on 2019/06/16 05:30
The alerts are not very loud with this new voice announcement it’s terrible please change back to the old alert at least I could hear the voice announcement across the room. This new one it’s been changed to every since the Tornados hit on Memorial Day is the worst ever not good considering we have Tornado watches tonight and this boring monotone voice doesn’t catch your attention I had to download a different weather app. Please Fix this
Severe weather alerts leave a lot to be desired
by SteveNLola on 2019/06/16 03:27
The color coding on the weather alerts is terrible. I shouldn’t have to compare and contrast in a moment of urgency to determine watch vs warning vs t-storm vs tornado. Nor should I have to sit through an ad before can view the “tornado warning in your area” video. And please help me understand why I can’t tap a warning box on the radar and actually read the information about the warning.
Update ruined this app
by ohiojem on 2019/06/16 01:21
I get an alert now and open the app and the first thing I get is an ad that I have to wait through to even get the specifics. Guess that warning isn’t as important as whatever is being advertised. Now I have to hunt for a new app
Whio weather app
by Newer isnt necessarily better on 2019/06/16 00:17
The new interface is less friendly. It’s cluttered. The new version of the app is “buggy” and frequently generates location errors. This upgrade has given me a reason to look for a better app. I’d take the old version over this. I’m confident something better is out there since the old version was better.
Horrible!!!
by OHMOM3 on 2019/06/08 21:46
They have changed the APP and it’s absolutely horrible. It works have the time and it’s NEVER accurate. I will be deleting this APP from my IPhone XR now.
Deleted
by jlkid11 on 2019/06/05 20:28
I’ve had the WHIO weather app for as long as I can remember. The constant notifications are way too much. I woke up to a notification this morning asking if the storms last night woke me up. Every time a rain drop is about to fall, I get a ridiculous amount of notifications that typically blow the forecast way out of proportion.
Weather War bugs Don’t Work
by iphoneWamy on 2019/05/29 23:54
Overall the app seemed decent enough until the tornadoes a few days ago. That’s when I found out that the weather alerts don’t work. It doesn’t matter how many locations I add, the app claims that I don’t have any locations set so I cannot turn on weather alerts. Since I have turned off the built in weather app, I didn’t get any warnings. Good thing I was watching TV at my friends house that night or I never would have known what was heading toward us.
Please bring back the old app!!!
by Cokefloat36 on 2019/05/22 02:13
Please bring back the old app! I was able to navigate the old app every day with ease. Now that the update has occurred, its hard to navigate around. I have uninstalled the app and won’t re-install until the old one returns. Meanwhile, I will Google the weather.
WHIO Weather
by Auntbeth2318 on 2019/05/20 02:50
I give no stars, a few weeks ago, app was working fine. You had an update, now it won’t come up. Tried to delete and reinstall but it will not install. I depend on this app for my weather and this time of year cannot be without it. Not a very happy user.
Change it back!!
by Kenzie998875 on 2019/05/20 01:41
I have used this app daily for years and loved it, up until recently when you updated it. Half the time it doesn’t work, it’s constantly crashing, and was much easier to navigate and understand before. I also used to receive notifications every time it rained, stormed etc. and now I don’t get anything. I wish more than anything you’d change back to how it was!
Go back to the old app
by Graecellen on 2019/05/12 19:00
This one freezes up, is too awkward to understand, and consistently tell me there are WiFi issues when everything else on my phone is working just fine. I used the old app for several years and loved it. I am now going to delete this app and go to weather channel app. I didn’t want to have to do it but I give up.
Very poor
by Morganovich on 2019/05/04 19:00
This has to be the most miserable weather site in existence. Full of ads when other weather apps are ad free. It is also slow and occasionally does not even work.
Change is not always good
by maxsmemaw on 2019/05/03 12:59
I deleted your app because it was too busy, too hard to read. I liked the old clear concise app. Today I tried it again, it’s better. But I still liked the old one better.
Hard to see, background too busy
by ?Bonay?? on 2019/05/03 01:19
Would like option to change background color. The current color makes forecast hard to see. Also, app keeps crashing. About every two days I have to delete and reinstall.
The Map
by OSUNUT-TRAV24 on 2019/05/01 01:00
The mad upgrade is good but the weather alerts are confusing, the Tornado Warnings and the Severe Thunderstorm warnings boxes are similar. Need to make them the old colors but the map is better
Fail
by Vanc123 on 2019/04/27 17:41
Changing an app is not always an improvement. Several issues have ruined this app. 1) It is too busy, too many categories, too many videos (who wants to have to stop what they’re doing to watch a video?) 2) Ads...the biggest pain for all app users. Too many ads, often splashed right over content, very distracting, and the user is forced to endure the ads by accepting them or go through an Ad Preference exercise (meaning you WILL see distracting ads, like it or not) 3) Weather warnings seem to have disappeared, did not happen at all during a recent tornado warning 4) An app is supposed to make things easier and streamlined, a simpler user experience. This app fails in that category.
No tornado warning alert
by Angie(MillerTime) on 2019/04/26 02:25
We just had a tornado warning where I live, but even though my push notifications are all active and everything in the settings is set up fine, I never received any tornado warning alert through the app. Luckily I heard the sirens and saw it on channel 7 when I turned the TV on, but I'm about to move a little further out into the country, so I'm not going to be able to rely on any siren.
Please bring back the old version!
by Jeff K P on 2019/04/20 11:16
Please bring back the old version of this weather app! This new version is too busy and hard to navigate on the go. I don’t like the new radar view either. I find myself using the Weather Underground app more these days as it is easy to navigate and very accurate on hourly forecast with wind speed/direction and a bar graph of hourly precipitation - easy quick view. Please bring back the old version of this app. FYI- I’ve been using WHIO Weather app for 5 plus years.
Look great, but
by Wpbedb1 on 2019/04/18 22:38
The app works and looks great except it will not do landscape mode on my iPad which is how I view everything. Very difficult to use when everything is sideways so are use other apps instead.
Something went horribly wrong with this app
by WarEagle0028 on 2019/04/18 20:26
I have used this app for several years now and have always enjoyed it. However, since this new update has been done it is always freezing and not updating to current weather conditions. It asks to retry literally every 5 seconds and doesn’t work with either WiFi or LTE. Idk what the deal is here but it needs to be looked into. I hate not being able to use it as it is my local weather channel.
User former
by jodie3687436 on 2019/04/14 11:52
I used to use this app a lot. The recent change to it is horrible I will no longer use this app I suggest that others don't either
Too much info and awful background map
by sad CW on 2019/04/13 15:24
I’m never going to take the time to watch a video when I can go to the hourly page instead. Also, hate the satellite background and have been unable to see where to change it even after reading the directions in the help article. I miss the old version.
New app is awful
by Sole 49 on 2019/04/13 15:11
The new app is awful. I don’t need commercials. The old app was perfect. It gave all the important information on the first page. I did not need to scroll down to find the five day forecast. Whoever is responsible should have his hands locked in iron mittens so he cannot use a keyboard.
Hate the update
by kenpodoc1 on 2019/04/08 23:04
This app went from clean and quick to being a new barrage of ads with weather less clear
Horrible
by mom440 on 2019/04/07 08:43
I much preferred the old app. This one is riddled with annoying ads that you can’t clear. The old was simple to see the forecast with hour by hour forecast as well. Please redesign to be more like the old without the annoyance of those ads everywhere and quick weekly forecasts at a glance!
I like it
by joy7500 on 2019/04/06 20:30
Took me some time to figure it all out lol but I love the fresh new look
Lousy
by Geeeez. on 2019/04/06 10:46
Old app worked great for a quick ref for glofers, etc. WAY TOO much data. Want old app back!
Newly Revised Weather App
by Oscar Meyer VV on 2019/04/05 21:53
First of all, I have to say that you have always been my favorite weather station! And, I really liked the previous design of the App. Don’t really like the new one. I’ll continue to WATCH the weather report on Channel 7 but won’t use the Weather App except to get alerts! Don’t see this as an improvement! Sorry!
Much better - beats weather channel
by mobartz on 2019/04/03 11:09
This new version is clean and has all the information that I need on one place. It is also quick to load. The hourly and daily views are great, and the radar is nice because it shows the names of local towns. Well done!
Do not like the new design.
by what nickname not talen on 2019/04/01 23:08
Do not care for the video. And the ads which pop up in middle of the screen. I am removing from my phone.
Downgraded!
by eye95 on 2019/04/01 11:59
New app is a downgrade, not an upgrade. 1. No 48-hour hour-by-hour forecast, which is the tool I used the most. 2. Clutter. The iPad screen is filled with too much information in too small a type. 3. Tiny white letters on a light background. 4. App should use overviews that can be tapped for more information rather than trying to crowd everything onto the page—and leaving some important information out completely (like 48-hour hour-by-hour). 5. Scrolling to find information is annoying. Taps to expand, not scrolls to search for information. I used to use the app several times a day. Now I am going to try to find another.
Hate the new design
by ortm987 on 2019/03/31 14:43
Go back to the old design. Important info was all on home screen with adds at bottom. FYI preview is old screen not new design. New design need to scroll through pages with adds popping up in middle of what you were looking for. This redesign was obviously done for adds and not user.
Weather revision
by Ms Too much to do on 2019/03/31 07:12
I prefer the old! I don’t want to listen to anything! Takes too much time which no one has these days. I like to see what I need with a glance. I also like the option to enter other zip codes and get the forecast at a glance. why does everyone think bigger is better. I liked it the way it was....quick and easy!!!!!!
Color
by DDN I quit on 2019/03/30 13:50
I am color blind. The new map doesn’t seem to have the option to turn off the terrain. The terrain background makes it difficult to follow the weather for me n
Cumbersome
by Shayne222 on 2019/03/30 12:25
The new layout is cumbersome, cluttered, and not user friendly. The old version was better, everything was instantly accessible, simple to navigate and displaying current weather as well as future forecasts (including, by the hour). I’m now considering a different app.
The old format was perfect
by UDFlyer77 on 2019/03/29 14:22
Often I could see exactly what I wanted with zero scrolling. With this “upgrade” the only information visible without scrolling is the current temperature. Too many ads. Too much scrolling. Too much clutter. Please give me an option to go back to the old format. You fixed what wasn’t broken.
Problem using with an iPad
by steved937 on 2019/03/29 07:22
I use an iPad in landscape mode, and the old version used to adjust for that. The new version will only come up in portrait mode. Is there a setting I am missing? This is my only app with this problem.
Love the new design
by Mizmeemster1876 on 2019/03/28 14:05
While I love the new design, I would like the option to hide the video forecast, or the option to customize what I want shown on the main screen. I would also pay a small fee to remove ads. Otherwise the weather app is pretty accurate, and works fast.

Ads-R-Bad, m-K?
by FinnishFanny on 2019/02/01 03:07
Ads are taking up too much of the screen. Real mood killer. I clicked on one, then tried to get back to the app and could no longer interact with it. Had to kill it and re-start. Is the ad revenue worth user frustration?? ALSO, please improve Closings & Delays e.g. Location Categories, Filter by Town, etc. And please ADD SEARCH 🔍 in the main screen!!
Inconsistent
by Commutiingsucks on 2019/01/19 23:49
Often the rain percentage for the day does not even come close to the hour by hour percentages. Radar on app does not match the radar on the actual TV news weather
Am I the only one?
by notagoober on 2018/10/02 20:33
I love getting an alert when there’s heavy rain in my area. Unfortunately, almost every time I hear that alert, I freeze and look around for a rattlesnake!
Weather has not been showing up
by ChanBranMan on 2018/08/30 15:28
It’s been a few weeks now and nothing shows up. I uninstalled and reinstalled and that didn’t work. Very disappointed since this was my favorite weather app.
Great weather app

this app is a really great weather app. i honestly have no complaints

by ChucklingWilma on 2018/07/31 00:19
How do I switch the thing to Fahrenheit? Apparently it will be in the high 30s all week here in San Antonio, TX. There is nothing on my phone settings or the application to change it. UPDATE! Well, I’m deleting it. I don’t read Celsius. Works fine on my iPad. 5 stars for the ipad.

Good for a check of the weather
by Th3viking on 2016/09/29 14:55
I like the alerts and easy access to the radar. One thing I would like to see would be a recording of the five day forecast put on there daily. I like watching the weather. But don't always have time in the mornings to watch tv.
Not as good as Others
by agmilliron on 2016/09/26 13:23
Overall, I like the app... I use several weather apps, and this compares well with the others. However, the notifications with the sound effects is quite annoying... specifically the heavy rain notification. It's too loud.
who else is downloading this to keep track of this crazy storm tonight??
by Wadddupppdoeitsyagurllie on 2016/06/23 06:10
I know I am !!
What Weather Channel does better
by Ironwood78 on 2016/06/21 13:32
WHIO Weather is more accurate, but with the Weather Channel app's hourly forecast I can check the hourly humidity, the wind speed, and it takes most of the screen so I can tell whether or not to expect thunderstorms or rain. WHIO's hourly forecast only takes the lower third of the screen and its weather icons are too small.
Now she don't work
by Cad one oh oh on 2016/03/23 14:32
I have iPhone 4s with IOS 7.1.2. I paid for the upgraded notifications. And now I can not get it to even start.
Do not download on iPhone 4
by Frankdawg15 on 2015/10/22 08:29
This app is junk on an iPhone 4. Locks up phone and have to reboot to close it. WHIOtv, please go back to the previous version!!
Local weather
by RachelSean2006 on 2015/10/02 04:40
Wanted for local weather. Constantly freezes on me. Sometimes the app will not open at all. I'm not sure why I have not yet un installed it.

by Tjkvb on 2015/09/29 19:57
Radar view is not very useful, already deleted the app.
Poor Preformance
by Mace2455 on 2015/09/28 19:13
Not worth downloading current version.
New version is terrible!
by Spinmaxx on 2015/09/25 20:08
The old app worked great, it was simple and had the info I needed. Now, of course, the egotistical local weather guys have to put a huge picture of themselves on the app when you open it. I need to know what the weather looks like, I don't need to know what the Meteorologists look like. Also, just like any other free website or app, they have overloaded it with ads.
Worst app I have installed
by Golferchuck on 2015/09/11 21:46

by Rosie9914 on 2015/09/04 17:34
They ruined a perfectly great little app that followed the KISS principle...arrrgh!
Great Look!
by Scantrell88 on 2015/09/04 01:34
This update is great, good look and feel to the app. Only complaint I have is that I keep setting my alerts and they seem to keep defaulting back to the selected options before I updated the alerts. Fix the alerts and this is 5 stars hands down.
Not a fan.
by zumphry on 2015/09/02 23:44
The previous version of WHIOWeather was fine. It wasn't *great* per se, but aside from having to tap the "<" chevron a few times to see the basement menu, there weren't huge problems. The newest version, however, is full of them. The main forecast screen is so visually busy that it's hard to parse anything. While having the current forecast video front and center (not to mention, actually in the app) is nice, having the current host's bust be 25% of the screen is a downright awful decision for any iPhone screen size. Rich and Eric and everyone else are great meteorologists, but currently, I'm having flashbacks to Clippy in Microsoft Word. Likewise, while the interactive radar is much better, the Live Doppler 7 HD stream (and I assume 7 Weather Now stream as well) ALWAYS having an ad auto-play is insulting and a dangerous decision when it comes to trying to determine where storm cells/lines are ASAP (since the interactive radar is still not an actual live radar). The ads at the bottom of the screen were bad enough, but fine, free app = ads. But I literally just got redirected to Trivago's app store page, which never happened in the previous version. While the layout could honestly stay the same, please at least remove the auto-play ads at the beginning of the livestreams. 7Weather Now already has ads on it, and the app is the only way to view the live radar livestream. I've honestly gone back to the previous version, and I hope the current version is fixed by the time the previous version is deactivated, similar to how the previous WHIONews app supposedly doesn't work anymore. I'm sorry for the long, negative review, but this updates is so disappointing. Stormcenter 7 is the only local weather team I respect and trust, and I honestly expect a better app to reflect their work.
Horrible Revision
by Whoruu on 2015/09/02 20:19
There are ads just below the navigation buttons at the bottom. This is clearly set up to cause accidental click throughs. It happened to me twice before I uninstalled it.
Greatly improved in this release
by Meteor71 on 2015/09/02 16:49
The WHIO weather app has been greatly improved in this release. Its contents are better organized. It's graphics and layout are much improved. The design of the radar is better, less confusing. Access to WHIO feeds on Facebook and Twitter are retained, a big plus in this app as it means that you can use it to get traffic updates as well. And, of course, you can still specify multiple locations in addition to your "current" location. This version of the WHIO Weather app is well worth the download.
Great app
by Candy pop 2014 on 2015/07/14 16:50
Love it
Need to change some things
by Cmiller2004 on 2015/04/10 03:35
Need to change the app setting to where it only uses my location while I'm using the app. I hate apps that use my location in the background. I deleted it before because of this very reason! It drains my battery when I have to leave the location on. Only downloaded it again for the weather moving in tonight. After which I will delete again!
Updated Review
by Gmq54 on 2015/04/08 17:33
I had deleted this app because I wasn't getting the warnings. I reinstalled the app this morning and I got my weather warnings (4-8-2015). The app now appears in the locations services area and that was the problem.
Not bad
by Zaosod on 2015/03/26 05:27
Pretty good weather app. Could use some improvements though. the ads are also pretty annoying
Problem
by Yhdr539 on 2015/02/09 11:21
Since downloading the newest version, I cannot open the hourly forecast feature.
Constant GPS
by iWedge on 2015/01/13 02:48
This app will keep you GPS on at all times and drain your battery. It should be programmed to only use GPS while the application is in use. Once you fix that I will download again.

It is a good app but the most recent update took away the hourly report. What happened?
Usually love it...

...but since the upgrade, I can't see the hourly forecast.
Glad it's back!

This is the 1st app I always open when having my morning coffee. Glad it's working, again.

Lifesaving Warnings!

I was nearly asleep when this App sounded the warning a tornado was in the area! I was immediately able to pull up Channel 7's live stream right on my phone and follow Jamie's coverage! EVERYONE needs this lifesaving tool. Thanks to the app, I know now I'll never be surprised by dangerous weather! Thanks, WHIO!
Useless

new version last week make the program crash. I notified whio several times and they tell me to remove and download again. I did that every day this week and it still crashes. maybe they should put the old version back until they can get the new one working!
Latest update epic fail
by Ccassel324 on 2019/07/01 12:43
I used to LOVE the WHIO weather app! Used to being the really important part of that sentence. Now I really don’t like it at all. I am considering going back to the Weather Channel app and I didn’t like it either. It is very hard to find alerts. I don’t want to watch a video about them. I just want to be able to quickly glance at the app to know what’s going on. I also don’t like the announcer that tells me heavy rain is detected in my area. I can see and hear that, and I usually see and hear it before the announcement comes. Where the heck did you guys put the current temperature?!?!? That used to be front and center. That’s what most people want to know. I don’t want to watch all the videos. I want to look at the app and see for myself. I never watched the forecast on the previous version, I’m not starting now. No one in the area that has this app that I have talked to likes it either. Please change it back!!!!!!
Change is not always good
by maxsmemaw on 2019/05/03 12:59
I deleted your app because it was too busy, too hard to read. I liked the old clear concise app. Today I tried it again, it’s better. But I still liked the old one better.
GO BACK TO THE OLD VERSION!!!
by Jerbearipb on 2019/09/17 13:28
When are you going to pay attention to all of the negative reviews and change the app back to the older version everyone loved? Can’t you see these negative ratings? None of the little fixes solve the problems. This app is too busy and too convoluted with junk we don’t need! Users are busy and want to see the 7-day forecast and radar! Could it be you can’t change it until the ad programs you sold expire? And what good are ads that get less eyeballs? Why else wouldn’t you change it back NOW? Luckily I told my husband not to update the app on his phone or the iPad. He picked up my phone the day after the tornadoes and said he couldn’t make heads or tails out of it! I never use it on my phone now. Change this app back to the clear, concise, colorful, uncluttered version it once way and quite monkeying around with something that people hate and doesn’t work!!!!!!!!
Problems
by Megsmac75 on 2019/06/16 16:22
Among many problems with this new app version, one that sticks out to me is having to watch video to get a “watch” or “warning.” I have a child that is extremely disturbed by storms and it is not convenient to watch a video to find out if we are in a watch or warning. It also highly disturbs me that after a major weather catastrophe like we just had, I would have to try to dodge ads to even see the current conditions for my area. (After all, even that is very difficult to locate on this new app design.) I will give the design one more chance, but I will also be comparing other designs to this because a change maybe necessary. You can’t wait for change to happen that never does when it can mean life or death.
Fail
by Vanc123 on 2019/04/27 17:41
Changing an app is not always an improvement. Several issues have ruined this app. 1) It is too busy, too many categories, too many videos (who wants to have to stop what they’re doing to watch a video?) 2) Ads...the biggest pain for all app users. Too many ads, often splashed right over content, very distracting, and the user is forced to endure the ads by accepting them or go through an Ad Preference exercise (meaning you WILL see distracting ads, like it or not) 3) Weather warnings seem to have disappeared, did not happen at all during a recent tornado warning 4) An app is supposed to make things easier and streamlined, a simpler user experience. This app fails in that category.
Crashes & locks, ads block display
by Nadger1829 on 2019/06/22 09:41
This app is poorly designed. If you open the app and then open it again after a couple of hours, it crashes with the message “Error unable to display data, check your wifi settings”. I have verified with many of my colleagues that they too are receiving the same message on both ipads and iphones when connected to wifi. There are too many large ads that obscure viewing the information on the screen. I could not even see the hourly forecast because of a huge Quest eseries rider ad. Surely WHIO has enough revenue to make an ad free app. As it stands, there are much better ad free weather apps to use.
Big disappointment
by Goldi1223 on 2019/06/17 01:17
After the constant push to download the WHIO weather app I decided to try it. I have to say that this is the most annoying app I’ve ever worked with. This weekend I was barraged with notifications of severe thunderstorm warnings and tornado watches and warnings. Unfortunately, I have no idea where all this was. When I tried to see the watch or warning, I got a video commercial and that was it. Why can I just read where the warning is? I don’t have time or the inclination to watch a video. This app is way to busy and not useful for me. Time to try something else.
Passed up on this app
by Kountrykruiser on 2019/06/28 00:50
Deleted it a while back. If the old app comes back or something better that is not a royal pain or frustrating, please announce it on T.V. Didn’t know there were so many horrible reviews as I thought it was just me. I was ready to come back until I read the reviews. Back to the App Store to try something else as my newest app (A major one) didn’t work out either due to location updating only once every 3 hours and taking way too long to open.
Weather War bugs Don’t Work
by iphoneWamy on 2019/05/29 23:54
Overall the app seemed decent enough until the tornadoes a few days ago. That’s when I found out that the weather alerts don’t work. It doesn’t matter how many locations I add, the app claims that I don’t have any locations set so I cannot turn on weather alerts. Since I have turned off the built in weather app, I didn’t get any warnings. Good thing I was watching TV at my friends house that night or I never would have known what was heading toward us.
Change Back to the old app
by GinaL. on 2019/06/16 05:30
The alerts are not very loud with this new voice announcement it’s terrible please change back to the old alert at least I could hear the voice announcement across the room. This new one it’s been changed to every since the Tornados hit on Memorial Day is the worst ever not good considering we have Tornado watches tonight and this boring monotone voice doesn’t catch your attention I had to download a different weather app. Please Fix this
Severe weather alerts leave a lot to be desired
by SteveNLola on 2019/06/16 03:27
The color coding on the weather alerts is terrible. I shouldn’t have to compare and contrast in a moment of urgency to determine watch vs warning vs t-storm vs tornado. Nor should I have to sit through an ad before can view the “tornado warning in your area” video. And please help me understand why I can’t tap a warning box on the radar and actually read the information about the warning.
Change it back!!
by Kenzie998875 on 2019/05/20 01:41
I have used this app daily for years and loved it, up until recently when you updated it. Half the time it doesn’t work, it’s constantly crashing, and was much easier to navigate and understand before. I also used to receive notifications every time it rained, stormed etc. and now I don’t get anything. I wish more than anything you’d change back to how it was!
No tornado warning alert
by Angie(MillerTime) on 2019/04/26 02:25
We just had a tornado warning where I live, but even though my push notifications are all active and everything in the settings is set up fine, I never received any tornado warning alert through the app. Luckily I heard the sirens and saw it on channel 7 when I turned the TV on, but I'm about to move a little further out into the country, so I'm not going to be able to rely on any siren.
Go back to the old app
by Graecellen on 2019/05/12 19:00
This one freezes up, is too awkward to understand, and consistently tell me there are WiFi issues when everything else on my phone is working just fine. I used the old app for several years and loved it. I am now going to delete this app and go to weather channel app. I didn’t want to have to do it but I give up.
Whio weather app
by Newer isnt necessarily better on 2019/06/16 00:17
The new interface is less friendly. It’s cluttered. The new version of the app is “buggy” and frequently generates location errors. This upgrade has given me a reason to look for a better app. I’d take the old version over this. I’m confident something better is out there since the old version was better.
Deleted
by jlkid11 on 2019/06/05 20:28
I’ve had the WHIO weather app for as long as I can remember. The constant notifications are way too much. I woke up to a notification this morning asking if the storms last night woke me up. Every time a rain drop is about to fall, I get a ridiculous amount of notifications that typically blow the forecast way out of proportion.
Please bring back the old app!!!
by Cokefloat36 on 2019/05/22 02:13
Please bring back the old app! I was able to navigate the old app every day with ease. Now that the update has occurred, its hard to navigate around. I have uninstalled the app and won’t re-install until the old one returns. Meanwhile, I will Google the weather.
Needs work still
by SusanMcKa on 2019/08/09 18:18
It often will not change to new data from day to day.
Hard to see, background too busy
by ?Bonay?? on 2019/05/03 01:19
Would like option to change background color. The current color makes forecast hard to see. Also, app keeps crashing. About every two days I have to delete and reinstall.
WHIO Weather
by Auntbeth2318 on 2019/05/20 02:50
I give no stars, a few weeks ago, app was working fine. You had an update, now it won’t come up. Tried to delete and reinstall but it will not install. I depend on this app for my weather and this time of year cannot be without it. Not a very happy user.
Update ruined this app
by ohiojem on 2019/06/16 01:21
I get an alert now and open the app and the first thing I get is an ad that I have to wait through to even get the specifics. Guess that warning isn’t as important as whatever is being advertised. Now I have to hunt for a new app
Very poor
by Morganovich on 2019/05/04 19:00
This has to be the most miserable weather site in existence. Full of ads when other weather apps are ad free. It is also slow and occasionally does not even work.
The Map
by OSUNUT-TRAV24 on 2019/05/01 01:00
The mad upgrade is good but the weather alerts are confusing, the Tornado Warnings and the Severe Thunderstorm warnings boxes are similar. Need to make them the old colors but the map is better
Need to change some things
by Cmiller2004 on 2015/04/10 03:35
Need to change the app setting to where it only uses my location while I'm using the app. I hate apps that use my location in the background. I deleted it before because of this very reason! It drains my battery when I have to leave the location on. Only downloaded it again for the weather moving in tonight. After which I will delete again!
One word...Awful.
by Jeffrey Friend on 2019/09/13 12:00
You have to watch 2 silent useless videos and 3 required commercials before getting a real weather forecast. Don't bother downloading. It's a total waste of time.
Horrible!!!
by OHMOM3 on 2019/06/08 21:46
They have changed the APP and it’s absolutely horrible. It works have the time and it’s NEVER accurate. I will be deleting this APP from my IPhone XR now.
Greatly improved in this release
by Meteor71 on 2015/09/02 16:49
The WHIO weather app has been greatly improved in this release. Its contents are better organized. It's graphics and layout are much improved. The design of the radar is better, less confusing. Access to WHIO feeds on Facebook and Twitter are retained, a big plus in this app as it means that you can use it to get traffic updates as well. And, of course, you can still specify multiple locations in addition to your "current" location. This version of the WHIO Weather app is well worth the download.
Very Good, Except .....
by Jon_DBS on 2013/03/10 13:20
I think WHIO has done a great job with this weather app. The only issue I have is the information is not up to date. Foe example the temperature currently is 50 degrees yet the app says it is 29 with a wind chill of 20 degrees. Not sure what triggers a refresh as I have found no button or setting to trigger an update. Other than the fact you do not know the accuracy of the data (today is easy as it is not 29 degrees) it is a great app. Keep up the good work!
Please bring back the old version!
by Jeff K P on 2019/04/20 11:16
Please bring back the old version of this weather app! This new version is too busy and hard to navigate on the go. I don’t like the new radar view either. I find myself using the Weather Underground app more these days as it is easy to navigate and very accurate on hourly forecast with wind speed/direction and a bar graph of hourly precipitation - easy quick view. Please bring back the old version of this app. FYI- I’ve been using WHIO Weather app for 5 plus years.
Something went horribly wrong with this app
by WarEagle0028 on 2019/04/18 20:26
I have used this app for several years now and have always enjoyed it. However, since this new update has been done it is always freezing and not updating to current weather conditions. It asks to retry literally every 5 seconds and doesn’t work with either WiFi or LTE. Idk what the deal is here but it needs to be looked into. I hate not being able to use it as it is my local weather channel.
Too much info and awful background map
by sad CW on 2019/04/13 15:24
I’m never going to take the time to watch a video when I can go to the hourly page instead. Also, hate the satellite background and have been unable to see where to change it even after reading the directions in the help article. I miss the old version.
Lifesaving Warnings!
by Superior Warnings on 2014/02/25 21:43
I was nearly asleep when this App sounded the warning a tornado was in the area! I was immediately able to pull up Channel 7's live stream right on my phone and follow Jamie's coverage! EVERYONE needs this lifesaving tool. Thanks to the app, I know now I'll never be surprised by dangerous weather! Thanks, WHIO!
Good for a check of the weather
by Th3viking on 2016/09/29 14:55
I like the alerts and easy access to the radar. One thing I would like to see would be a recording of the five day forecast put on there daily. I like watching the weather. But don't always have time in the mornings to watch tv.
Not as good as Others
by agmilliron on 2016/09/26 13:23
Overall, I like the app... I use several weather apps, and this compares well with the others. However, the notifications with the sound effects is quite annoying... specifically the heavy rain notification. It's too loud.
Great Look!
by Scantrell88 on 2015/09/04 01:34
This update is great, good look and feel to the app. Only complaint I have is that I keep setting my alerts and they seem to keep defaulting back to the selected options before I updated the alerts. Fix the alerts and this is 5 stars hands down.
Much better - beats weather channel
by mobartz on 2019/04/03 11:09
This new version is clean and has all the information that I need on one place. It is also quick to load. The hourly and daily views are great, and the radar is nice because it shows the names of local towns. Well done!
Love the new design
by Mizmeemster1876 on 2019/03/28 14:05
While I love the new design, I would like the option to hide the video forecast, or the option to customize what I want shown on the main screen. I would also pay a small fee to remove ads. Otherwise the weather app is pretty accurate, and works fast.
What Weather Channel does better
by Ironwood78 on 2016/06/21 13:32
WHIO Weather is more accurate, but with the Weather Channel app's hourly forecast I can check the hourly humidity, the wind speed, and it takes most of the screen so I can tell whether or not to expect thunderstorms or rain. WHIO's hourly forecast only takes the lower third of the screen and its weather icons are too small.
Downgraded!
by eye95 on 2019/04/01 11:59
New app is a downgrade, not an upgrade. 1. No 48-hour hour-by-hour forecast, which is the tool I used the most. 2. Clutter. The iPad screen is filled with too much information in too small a type. 3. Tiny white letters on a light background. 4. App should use overviews that can be tapped for more information rather than trying to crowd everything onto the page—and leaving some important information out completely (like 48-hour hour-by-hour). 5. Scrolling to find information is annoying. Taps to expand, not scrolls to search for information. I used to use the app several times a day. Now I am going to try to find another.
Ads-R-Bad, m-K?
by FinnishFanny on 2019/02/01 03:07
Ads are taking up too much of the screen. Real mood killer. I clicked on one, then tried to get back to the app and could no longer interact with it. Had to kill it and re-start. Is the ad revenue worth user frustration?? ALSO, please improve Closings & Delays e.g. Location Categories, Filter by Town, etc. And please ADD SEARCH 🔍 in the main screen!!
New version is terrible!
by Spinmaxx on 2015/09/25 20:08
The old app worked great, it was simple and had the info I needed. Now, of course, the egotistical local weather guys have to put a huge picture of themselves on the app when you open it. I need to know what the weather looks like, I don't need to know what the Meteorologists look like. Also, just like any other free website or app, they have overloaded it with ads.
Nicely done!
by TheaOH on 2014/01/03 14:43
Really, really nice job with this app - thank you! Everything I want about my local weather is right here, and in a package that works beautifully. Well done!
Look great, but
by Wpbedb1 on 2019/04/18 22:38
The app works and looks great except it will not do landscape mode on my iPad which is how I view everything. Very difficult to use when everything is sideways so are use other apps instead.
Beautiful app
by Buckeyestar on 2013/01/29 14:18
This is my favorite weather app for the iPad thus far. I've tried Weather Channel and Weatherbug, but was never really satisfied. Granted, this is only for the Miami Valley area, but that's all I need.
Glad it's back!
by Perry3D on 2014/09/27 21:30
This is the 1st app I always open when having my morning coffee. Glad it's working, again.
The ONLY weather app to have for Dayton Area
by Kayla #1 on 2014/01/21 10:32
This is my number one go to app for local weather. Easy to use and understand. Best radar in the valley.
Weather revision
by Ms Too much to do on 2019/03/31 07:12
I prefer the old! I don’t want to listen to anything! Takes too much time which no one has these days. I like to see what I need with a glance. I also like the option to enter other zip codes and get the forecast at a glance. why does everyone think bigger is better. I liked it the way it was....quick and easy!!!!!!
Am I the only one?
by notagoober on 2018/10/02 20:33
I love getting an alert when there’s heavy rain in my area. Unfortunately, almost every time I hear that alert, I freeze and look around for a rattlesnake!
Update loaded July 13
by 123456numbers on 2013/07/20 00:48
The new version was updated but when try to open it closes and quits right away. Was a nice app
