Different Hourly Forecast in Different Phones
by Jdjwndjjsjs on 2020/02/09 17:06
The weather app shows different hourly forecasts at the same time on different phones; a real head scratcher.
New version glitches
by JenCastro on 2019/12/31 13:50
Is getting stick at the open screen.
Love the video hate the load time
by Noonepleasehavethisname on 2019/12/30 14:20
Watching the reply on weather is great, if it works. Tried reloading it. No better. Get it working and I’ll be back.
Accurate!
by Oiseua on 2019/11/25 13:30
We travel and use this app most of all because their forecasts arr reliably accurate. And the alerts timely.
This app needs help
by Dean.787 on 2019/09/12 01:26
I had to uninstall the app tonight because every time I went in to see the radar a pop up advertisements get in the way, and the power it was taking 5% battery each time I went on to look at the storm, this is a bad app for saving lives, hi Highly would not recommend it, we are better off with the weather channel.
Too many ads!
by jr. grillmeister on 2019/09/08 17:45
Between too many ads and the amount of time the app takes to start this is almost worthless. I’d rate it less than a star if I could.
Midnight sun
by Skorka8 on 2019/07/21 04:43
Latest app update now shows the sun icon during the overnight hours for the hourly forecast. Used to be the moon. So I guess that’s an improvement...that WOOD TV has saved us from darkness.
No stars.
by sratson on 2019/05/23 12:57
Since the update on May 8, the weather app won’t load on 2 iPads in our house. Consistently get “Network Error”. Regular WOODTV app works fine. Something definitely wrong here...
Freezing

It keeps freezing since the last update
Invasion of the pop up ads
by N F B on 2019/04/15 01:30
Ultra annoying!! Used to be pretty good, now it has constant pop up stupid ads. Update: WZZM 13 weather app is simple and w/o annoying ads.
Ads are awful
by Melovefreeappsthatrfree on 2019/04/11 10:56
It is a shame that this app has so many ads, wood tv 8 has great meteorologists, but it’s not worth watching all the pop up commercials.
Pop up ads are too annoying
by kpotje on 2019/03/05 11:56
I use this app all the time, but the new pop up ads are causing me to look else where for school closings and weather
When it works...
by Mlvrotties on 2019/02/22 10:47
It is a decent app, when it works. I, too often, find myself hitting the banner ad at the top when trying to use the drop-down menu. I am then stuck there and the only way out is to close the app and go back in. The app is also slow - Waiting quite a while for the app to even open. I guess it’s time to find another weather app.
Just like everyone else
by DrDRum78 on 2018/12/19 13:11
Yep, agree with everyone else. Used to be a GREAT app, and one that was recommended amongst locals. Now, it’s laughable with the ads. Just got a new weather app that was recommended by a friend, works as well, with no annoying “take my phone over” ads. App deleted. Steffen & crew should be TICKED their viewers are leaving not because of its great content, but crappy advertising app labeled as a weather app.
Minimize the ads
by MustangSharon on 2018/08/29 13:26
I use your competition’s (Channel 13) weather app because they don’t bombard me with full screen ads like yours does. Because I haven’t used your app for so long I decided to try it again this morning. A full-page ad popped up within the first few seconds. It was from Parenting magazine of all things! I am WAY beyond the need for Parenting magazine ads! You could minimize those ads at the top. No one likes full-page ads blocking the screen. I’m deleting your app.
Constantly freezes
by KVanderZ on 2018/07/21 12:36
Every time an add pops up the entire app freezes and I have to restart it. Very frustrating.
Slow
by Bckpkr76 on 2018/07/03 01:08
It is ok for a forecast, but the radar is way too slow to load. I skip over to weather.com app for radar updates.
Very buggy
by ajkubat on 2018/06/27 00:16
Used to be great, now won’t open, despite a reinstall. Have deleted it.
Overwhelmed by Advertising
by Donstip on 2018/05/08 22:15
Useful weather data and very accurate forecasts, but the experience is completely ruined by the unending and annoying ads that constantly pop-up. I’ve taken it off my iPad. I’d download and use it again if WOOD TV would offer a no-ad, subscription option.
All ads no weather.
by Eman172 on 2018/05/02 23:38
Extremely hard to use with constant pop up ads.
1.9 star rating would be much lower if zero rating allowed
by RmStar88 on 2018/05/02 09:28
WoodTv8 you need to pay attention to your viewers and not your advertisers. I would give this app zero stars if I could. Auto pop up ads with volume REALLY!
Too many problems!
by scoobamom on 2018/04/15 17:27
Some things work and some things don’t. This app needs a lot of work to be something that works well. It’s difficult to work around the ads and there are too many popping up. Bill’s Blog is unreadable because the Continue Reading touch bar doesn’t give you the rest of the text but instead just reloads the page. It would be nice to choose Text forecast and have all the text instead of having to touch a second time to view it. It would also be nice to have the same forecasts align with the Wood TV8 app. The best part of this app is the radar. Being able to zoom out, move around, select layers, and activate a time lapse for current or future radar is very helpful.
Awful
by anparkem on 2018/04/15 11:39
This app is just as bad as the website. So many ads and pop ups you can’t even get through the list of closings! No point in looking or checking the weather.
Maddening. Stop the pop-ups!
by gluten free on 2018/01/08 12:19
I just spent less than 5 minutes trying view closings and the text forecast and had *15* ads pop up. WoodTV8 - get a new app designer and a new format for advertising. Your apps used to get daily use, but due to poor design and MAINLY the advertising style, I can’t stand to use this app or the News 8 app either. Pop up blockers have been around for ages... why? Because pop ups are intrusive and annoying! Get with the times!!
Auto play ANNOYING.
by wndwclner on 2017/12/31 11:26
While I get the need and idea to have advertisements, do you need to have video WITH SOUND pop up that automatically plays? Wakes my family up if I'm not quick to click "done" and exit out. Information on the weather is accurate and I like the format, but the ads kill it.
Overrun with spam & annoying ads
by RyanThEWebber on 2017/12/30 18:30
I used to love this app. A shame it’s been turned into nothing but constant pop up ads. Every tap seems to turn into a pop up, sometimes two in a row. Ads also seem to pop up after a delay, in the midst of reading something. A lot of the ads look cheap and spam like. Takes away from the legitimacy/appeal of the app. Turning to one of the other stations now and dozens of better weather apps! It was ground breaking for a time, including the voice of Chief Meteorologist Bill Steffen when weather warnings occur near your location. These days, I suspect the chief will start reading ads at 3am!
Radar is good, but pop-up ads need to go!
by Dawn1051 on 2017/12/29 13:10
I’ve had this app for quite a while, but apparently they’ve decided to make as much money as possible by selling advertising in the form of pop-up ads. It’s incredibly annoying and frankly, the reason I’m deleting this ap.
Pop up ads?
by Jake Bates on 2017/12/25 16:19
I can barely get through this app.
Slow
by mermer1981 on 2017/12/13 19:23
Please update this app. It’s so slow, and the ads are really annoying
Great app, too many ads
by bekashane on 2017/12/13 05:08
The information in the app and presentation is nice, but is 4-5 pop-up, full screen, autoplaying ads (not all of them have an x to click, or go away after 15 seconds) on EVERY screen (radar, 8 day, etc) REALLY necessary? It's a huge turn off to wanting to use this app.
👎
by RonnieJH on 2017/12/07 11:28
Yes please get rid of pop up adds.. Very annoying!!!!!
Fair app for weather
by Spindriftisland on 2017/09/15 22:04
Not a bad app but while I can accept some commercials, I draw the line when a full screen commercial pops up. Sorry folks but you just lost me as a customer.
Pop up adds
by Very!Good56 on 2017/07/27 23:17
I used to love this app now with all the pop up adds it's annoying so it's time to say bye bye
Ads, video, sounf
by MRSSPOCK on 2016/12/14 20:54
I used to like this, but now video ads pop up. And sound starts automatically. Bad when you don't want to use cellular data to watch the news. Try to look at text forecast and video with audio is running at the bottom of page. Will stop using until they fix it.
Too many ads
by Toy Dogwatch on 2016/12/11 17:33
This is a great app I like how it alerts you when precipitation is in the area especially lightning ⛈ is in the area this is really handy but one problem is you guys ruening a perfectly good app with to many ads get rid of all the ads and then it will be a 5 star app
Literally the worst app ever.
by Catapulter on 2016/12/11 03:09
It would appear this app serves no purpose other than letting cash roll in from advertisers. How there are enough people using this app to keep them is another question, how the rating on this app is more than a single star is unfathomable. I have go through a merry go round and twelve thousand clicks of mostly guessing where I am going to read the forecast while being bombarded with ads and video that plays with sound at the bottom of a page and miles scrolling to find where the audio is coming from only to have to mute it again after trying to mute it once already. This is literally the worst app I have ever used. Every time I think it must have improved after a year or two, somehow it managed to get worse. After a day or two I had to delete it.
Wow! no.....
by Ravencat on 2016/08/20 23:08
Can we say garbage? Every button I touch gets me to a scam, like it has highly coveted information. Stick with the Weather Channel App. This is like an app consisting nothing but that dangerous right column on Facebook®.
Ruined by adds
by West side 2002 on 2016/02/13 17:50
I know you need adds to support your app. But full screen commercials with sound is too much. Nothing like being in a quiet waiting room and go to check the weather to only have a commercial start blaring.
Ruined by pop up ads
by Vanstephen on 2016/02/05 00:59
Agree with first review. Since the pop up ads the app locks up my iPad every time I use it. Easier to use the website in Safari.
Ruined by full screen video ads
by Timodactyl on 2016/02/01 13:24
I used this app for a few weeks and actually liked it. Then full screen video ads started popping up and completely ruined it. Deleted.
Today's forecast: Cloudy with a 100% chance of ads
by DangerMoney on 2016/01/25 15:04
This app used to be really helpful until someone decided the weather forecast was calling for clouds with a 100% of chance of annoying ads. Too bad, since this used to be a great app.
Way to Many Adds!
by Drew0207 on 2016/01/20 22:50
This was a great app when I first downloaded it with a lot of great information. Now as you go from one feature to the next adds are popping up making it very annoying to use the app. I will be deleting this app.
Too many ads
by thedayjoefell on 2016/01/18 03:28
This app has way too many ads. Tap on anything and an ad pops up before you can see what you want.
Radar not working at all
by Tbomhof on 2016/01/13 18:19
Not sure why but radar is always clear skies even though it is raining or snowing. I'm bummed I had to download another app just to see what's going on. Also, the pop up ads are over the top. I know ads are needed, but every time I click on something?
The ads are everywhere!
by Good pizza ap on 2016/01/13 01:36
The app may say it is free but it is not. Just looking at the daily forecast, you have to watch ads between days. Give me a break. Delete...
Awful with the changes!
by Mammag488 on 2016/01/12 19:44
This used to be a decent app. Now it isn't worth the space on my phone. The new ad feature is beyond obnoxious. The carousel doesn't stop where I want it to stop. Then when it does, I get the ad that covers the screen, plays a video, and blasts audio. WWMT's weather app is better.
Update has too many ads
by Imagecrafters on 2016/01/11 01:45
I like the new app design. Runs a little slow and ads start blaring out when checking out the weather by day. Need to be muted with option to have sound. Annoying.
Seriously?
by MrSkeezer on 2016/01/10 23:59
App is fine but do I seriously have to have ads that pop up and fill my whole page and then when you go to "x" out of it its in the same place that you touch to go to see the advertisers video. Dont think so! I can do better. I want the weather, not flooring and heating. I understand small adds, not ones that fill my whole screen.
Scrolling scrolling scrolling
by CarylH.123 on 2016/01/10 10:23
Yes that carousel design was all around a bad idea. It either scrolls right past the next box or it starts to scroll ahead but then just rolls back to the box you were already looking at. And the ads are just bad, they pop up about every 20 seconds.
Nope
by ScoutB on 2016/01/07 02:29
Got the same ad three times in the first 30 seconds of use. Deleted the app 30 seconds later. I understand the need for advertising in free apps but this one is spam city.
Poor design
by Add fast on 2015/11/06 13:57
Does not work well. The carousel feature never stops where you want it and you have to look at storm team 8 every time you want to use it as opposed to just getting to the weather forecast. I personally like a split screen of hourly and 8 day the two most useful functions both seen at a glance when you tap it open.
Decent app
by Mitchell529 on 2015/06/09 00:11
Please make it so the app is optimized for the iPhone 6 also I don't like how it shrinks on my Phone
It's okay
by therr750 on 2015/05/26 20:37
I'm not real tech savvy so after using this app for a couple weeks I'm not real impressed. It gives you the current conditions, a map that can be expanded or shrunk and a couple of forecasts but I'm just not impressed. I get better choices of details from the web page but, I'm just not tech savvy enough to dig the details out of the app.
Good but...
by Monster maker 2345: on 2015/04/09 06:03
A great app with accurate information, the only problem is the future radar is very inaccurate! There can be a storm that takes up a whole state and then when you click future radar, it becomes a tiny little blip! Please fix the future radar for 5 stars!
Finally a great weather app!
by Lovethisbook421 on 2015/02/01 13:43
Love the features of this app! Radar is clear & there's nothing confusing about it. Thanks for making this !
Squinting to see my weather
by Twiseldorf on 2015/01/08 12:05
I want to use this app. I like that I am patronizing a local company, but the fonts are too small to see.
Great Concept
by Jemod on 2014/11/19 04:35
......But it crashes too often on my iPhone 6.
Great to have detailed local weather content, but needs a few tweaks
by Kappab on 2014/11/19 02:55
This app is a great idea, but I would pay for it if it meant getting rid of the ads.I would also make swiping left the way to return to the home screen rather than tapping the woodtv icon
Would like to like
by jenhuffy on 2014/11/18 11:59
Keeps crashing!
Great local weather app
by jjk454ss on 2014/11/18 02:26
I like the app, I wish I could pay a little to remove ads. But the interface is great, the notifications are nice, overall great app.
Love Bill Steffen!
by KurtisK41 on 2014/11/17 21:49
This app is great! I love that Bill Steffen gives weather alerts.
Glad It's A Standalone App
by Nathan Krupp on 2014/11/17 21:23
Whenever I wanted to check the weather I had to go through the WoodTv app. I didn't like going through all of that, and now I don't have to anymore. In love! :)
Awesome!
by Wmichnewsie on 2014/11/17 21:17
Great interactive radar. I love hearing bill Steffen when weather is on the way!
Too many problems!

It would appear this app serves no purpose other than letting cash roll in from advertisers. How there are enough people using this app to keep them is another question, how the rating on this app is more than a single star is unfathomable. I have go through a merry go round and twelve thousand clicks of mostly guessing where I am going to read the forecast while being bombarded with ads and video that plays with sound at the bottom of a page and miles scrolling to find where the audio is coming from only to have to mute it again after trying to mute it once already. This is literally the worst app I have ever used. Every time I think it must have improved after a year or two, somehow it managed to get worse. After a day or two I had to delete it.
Good but...
by Monster maker 2345: on 2015/04/09 06:03
A great app with accurate information, the only problem is the future radar is very inaccurate! There can be a storm that takes up a whole state and then when you click future radar, it becomes a tiny little blip! Please fix the future radar for 5 stars!
It's okay
by therr750 on 2015/05/26 20:37
I'm not real tech savvy so after using this app for a couple weeks I'm not real impressed. It gives you the current conditions, a map that can be expanded or shrunk and a couple of forecasts but I'm just not impressed. I get better choices of details from the web page but, I'm just not tech savvy enough to dig the details out of the app.
Great to have detailed local weather content, but needs a few tweaks
by Kappab on 2014/11/19 02:55
This app is a great idea, but I would pay for it if it meant getting rid of the ads.I would also make swiping left the way to return to the home screen rather than tapping the woodtv icon
Update has too many ads
by Imagecrafters on 2016/01/11 01:45
I like the new app design. Runs a little slow and ads start blaring out when checking out the weather by day. Need to be muted with option to have sound. Annoying.
Too many ads
by Toy Dogwatch on 2016/12/11 17:33
This is a great app I like how it alerts you when precipitation is in the area especially lightning ⛈ is in the area this is really handy but one problem is you guys ruening a perfectly good app with to many ads get rid of all the ads and then it will be a 5 star app
Seriously?
by MrSkeezer on 2016/01/10 23:59
App is fine but do I seriously have to have ads that pop up and fill my whole page and then when you go to "x" out of it its in the same place that you touch to go to see the advertisers video. Dont think so! I can do better. I want the weather, not flooring and heating. I understand small adds, not ones that fill my whole screen.
Great local weather app
by jjk454ss on 2014/11/18 02:26
I like the app, I wish I could pay a little to remove ads. But the interface is great, the notifications are nice, overall great app.
Glad It's A Standalone App
by Nathan Krupp on 2014/11/17 21:23
Whenever I wanted to check the weather I had to go through the WoodTv app. I didn't like going through all of that, and now I don't have to anymore. In love! :)
Poor design
by Add fast on 2015/11/06 13:57
Does not work well. The carousel feature never stops where you want it and you have to look at storm team 8 every time you want to use it as opposed to just getting to the weather forecast. I personally like a split screen of hourly and 8 day the two most useful functions both seen at a glance when you tap it open.
Finally a great weather app!
by Lovethisbook421 on 2015/02/01 13:43
Love the features of this app! Radar is clear & there's nothing confusing about it. Thanks for making this !
Radar not working at all
by Tbomhof on 2016/01/13 18:19
Not sure why but radar is always clear skies even though it is raining or snowing. I'm bummed I had to download another app just to see what's going on. Also, the pop up ads are over the top. I know ads are needed, but every time I click on something?
Awful with the changes!
by Mammag488 on 2016/01/12 19:44
This used to be a decent app. Now it isn't worth the space on my phone. The new ad feature is beyond obnoxious. The carousel doesn't stop where I want it to stop. Then when it does, I get the ad that covers the screen, plays a video, and blasts audio. WWMT's weather app is better.
Scrolling scrolling scrolling
by CarylH.123 on 2016/01/10 10:23
Yes that carousel design was all around a bad idea. It either scrolls right past the next box or it starts to scroll ahead but then just rolls back to the box you were already looking at. And the ads are just bad, they pop up about every 20 seconds.
Ruined by adds
by West side 2002 on 2016/02/13 17:50
I know you need adds to support your app. But full screen commercials with sound is too much. Nothing like being in a quiet waiting room and go to check the weather to only have a commercial start blaring.
Way to Many Adds!
by Drew0207 on 2016/01/20 22:50
This was a great app when I first downloaded it with a lot of great information. Now as you go from one feature to the next adds are popping up making it very annoying to use the app. I will be deleting this app.

Different Hourly Forecast in Different Phones
by Jdjwndjjsjs on 2020/02/09 17:06
The weather app shows different hourly forecasts at the same time on different phones; a real head scratcher.
New version glitches
by JenCastro on 2019/12/31 13:50
Is getting stick at the open screen.
Love the video hate the load time
by Noonepleasehavethisname on 2019/12/30 14:20
Watching the reply on weather is great, if it works. Tried reloading it. No better. Get it working and I’ll be back.
Accurate!
by Oiseua on 2019/11/25 13:30
We travel and use this app most of all because their forecasts arr reliably accurate. And the alerts timely.
This app needs help
by Dean.787 on 2019/09/12 01:26
I had to uninstall the app tonight because every time I went in to see the radar a pop up advertisements get in the way, and the power it was taking 5% battery each time I went on to look at the storm, this is a bad app for saving lives, hi Highly would not recommend it, we are better off with the weather channel.
Too many ads!
by jr. grillmeister on 2019/09/08 17:45
Between too many ads and the amount of time the app takes to start this is almost worthless. I’d rate it less than a star if I could.
Midnight sun
by Skorka8 on 2019/07/21 04:43
Latest app update now shows the sun icon during the overnight hours for the hourly forecast. Used to be the moon. So I guess that’s an improvement...that WOOD TV has saved us from darkness.
No stars.
by sratson on 2019/05/23 12:57
Since the update on May 8, the weather app won’t load on 2 iPads in our house. Consistently get “Network Error”. Regular WOODTV app works fine. Something definitely wrong here...
Freezing
by gass2235 on 2019/05/16 20:14
It keeps freezing since the last update
Invasion of the pop up ads
by N F B on 2019/04/15 01:30
Ultra annoying!! Used to be pretty good, now it has constant pop up stupid ads. Update: WZZM 13 weather app is simple and w/o annoying ads.
Ads are awful
by Melovefreeappsthatrfree on 2019/04/11 10:56
It is a shame that this app has so many ads, wood tv 8 has great meteorologists, but it’s not worth watching all the pop up commercials.
Pop up ads are too annoying
by kpotje on 2019/03/05 11:56
I use this app all the time, but the new pop up ads are causing me to look else where for school closings and weather
When it works...
by Mlvrotties on 2019/02/22 10:47
It is a decent app, when it works. I, too often, find myself hitting the banner ad at the top when trying to use the drop-down menu. I am then stuck there and the only way out is to close the app and go back in. The app is also slow - Waiting quite a while for the app to even open. I guess it’s time to find another weather app.
Just like everyone else
by DrDRum78 on 2018/12/19 13:11
Yep, agree with everyone else. Used to be a GREAT app, and one that was recommended amongst locals. Now, it’s laughable with the ads. Just got a new weather app that was recommended by a friend, works as well, with no annoying “take my phone over” ads. App deleted. Steffen & crew should be TICKED their viewers are leaving not because of its great content, but crappy advertising app labeled as a weather app.
Minimize the ads
by MustangSharon on 2018/08/29 13:26
I use your competition’s (Channel 13) weather app because they don’t bombard me with full screen ads like yours does. Because I haven’t used your app for so long I decided to try it again this morning. A full-page ad popped up within the first few seconds. It was from Parenting magazine of all things! I am WAY beyond the need for Parenting magazine ads! You could minimize those ads at the top. No one likes full-page ads blocking the screen. I’m deleting your app.
Constantly freezes
by KVanderZ on 2018/07/21 12:36
Every time an add pops up the entire app freezes and I have to restart it. Very frustrating.
Slow
by Bckpkr76 on 2018/07/03 01:08
It is ok for a forecast, but the radar is way too slow to load. I skip over to weather.com app for radar updates.
Very buggy
by ajkubat on 2018/06/27 00:16
Used to be great, now won’t open, despite a reinstall. Have deleted it.
Overwhelmed by Advertising
by Donstip on 2018/05/08 22:15
Useful weather data and very accurate forecasts, but the experience is completely ruined by the unending and annoying ads that constantly pop-up. I’ve taken it off my iPad. I’d download and use it again if WOOD TV would offer a no-ad, subscription option.
All ads no weather.
by Eman172 on 2018/05/02 23:38
Extremely hard to use with constant pop up ads.
1.9 star rating would be much lower if zero rating allowed
by RmStar88 on 2018/05/02 09:28
WoodTv8 you need to pay attention to your viewers and not your advertisers. I would give this app zero stars if I could. Auto pop up ads with volume REALLY!
Too many problems!
by scoobamom on 2018/04/15 17:27
Some things work and some things don’t. This app needs a lot of work to be something that works well. It’s difficult to work around the ads and there are too many popping up. Bill’s Blog is unreadable because the Continue Reading touch bar doesn’t give you the rest of the text but instead just reloads the page. It would be nice to choose Text forecast and have all the text instead of having to touch a second time to view it. It would also be nice to have the same forecasts align with the Wood TV8 app. The best part of this app is the radar. Being able to zoom out, move around, select layers, and activate a time lapse for current or future radar is very helpful.
Awful
by anparkem on 2018/04/15 11:39
This app is just as bad as the website. So many ads and pop ups you can’t even get through the list of closings! No point in looking or checking the weather.
Maddening. Stop the pop-ups!
by gluten free on 2018/01/08 12:19
I just spent less than 5 minutes trying view closings and the text forecast and had *15* ads pop up. WoodTV8 - get a new app designer and a new format for advertising. Your apps used to get daily use, but due to poor design and MAINLY the advertising style, I can’t stand to use this app or the News 8 app either. Pop up blockers have been around for ages... why? Because pop ups are intrusive and annoying! Get with the times!!
Auto play ANNOYING.
by wndwclner on 2017/12/31 11:26
While I get the need and idea to have advertisements, do you need to have video WITH SOUND pop up that automatically plays? Wakes my family up if I'm not quick to click "done" and exit out. Information on the weather is accurate and I like the format, but the ads kill it.
Overrun with spam & annoying ads
by RyanThEWebber on 2017/12/30 18:30
I used to love this app. A shame it’s been turned into nothing but constant pop up ads. Every tap seems to turn into a pop up, sometimes two in a row. Ads also seem to pop up after a delay, in the midst of reading something. A lot of the ads look cheap and spam like. Takes away from the legitimacy/appeal of the app. Turning to one of the other stations now and dozens of better weather apps! It was ground breaking for a time, including the voice of Chief Meteorologist Bill Steffen when weather warnings occur near your location. These days, I suspect the chief will start reading ads at 3am!
Radar is good, but pop-up ads need to go!
by Dawn1051 on 2017/12/29 13:10
I’ve had this app for quite a while, but apparently they’ve decided to make as much money as possible by selling advertising in the form of pop-up ads. It’s incredibly annoying and frankly, the reason I’m deleting this ap.
Pop up ads?
by Jake Bates on 2017/12/25 16:19
I can barely get through this app.
Slow
by mermer1981 on 2017/12/13 19:23
Please update this app. It’s so slow, and the ads are really annoying
Great app, too many ads
by bekashane on 2017/12/13 05:08
The information in the app and presentation is nice, but is 4-5 pop-up, full screen, autoplaying ads (not all of them have an x to click, or go away after 15 seconds) on EVERY screen (radar, 8 day, etc) REALLY necessary? It's a huge turn off to wanting to use this app.
👎
by RonnieJH on 2017/12/07 11:28
Yes please get rid of pop up adds.. Very annoying!!!!!
Fair app for weather
by Spindriftisland on 2017/09/15 22:04
Not a bad app but while I can accept some commercials, I draw the line when a full screen commercial pops up. Sorry folks but you just lost me as a customer.
Pop up adds
by Very!Good56 on 2017/07/27 23:17
I used to love this app now with all the pop up adds it's annoying so it's time to say bye bye
Ads, video, sounf
by MRSSPOCK on 2016/12/14 20:54
I used to like this, but now video ads pop up. And sound starts automatically. Bad when you don't want to use cellular data to watch the news. Try to look at text forecast and video with audio is running at the bottom of page. Will stop using until they fix it.
Too many ads
by Toy Dogwatch on 2016/12/11 17:33
This is a great app I like how it alerts you when precipitation is in the area especially lightning ⛈ is in the area this is really handy but one problem is you guys ruening a perfectly good app with to many ads get rid of all the ads and then it will be a 5 star app
Literally the worst app ever.

Wow! no.....
by Ravencat on 2016/08/20 23:08
Can we say garbage? Every button I touch gets me to a scam, like it has highly coveted information. Stick with the Weather Channel App. This is like an app consisting nothing but that dangerous right column on Facebook®.
Ruined by adds
by West side 2002 on 2016/02/13 17:50
I know you need adds to support your app. But full screen commercials with sound is too much. Nothing like being in a quiet waiting room and go to check the weather to only have a commercial start blaring.
Ruined by pop up ads
by Vanstephen on 2016/02/05 00:59
Agree with first review. Since the pop up ads the app locks up my iPad every time I use it. Easier to use the website in Safari.
Ruined by full screen video ads
by Timodactyl on 2016/02/01 13:24
I used this app for a few weeks and actually liked it. Then full screen video ads started popping up and completely ruined it. Deleted.
Today's forecast: Cloudy with a 100% chance of ads
by DangerMoney on 2016/01/25 15:04
This app used to be really helpful until someone decided the weather forecast was calling for clouds with a 100% of chance of annoying ads. Too bad, since this used to be a great app.
Way to Many Adds!

The ads are everywhere!
by Good pizza ap on 2016/01/13 01:36
The app may say it is free but it is not. Just looking at the daily forecast, you have to watch ads between days. Give me a break. Delete...

by CarylH.123 on 2016/01/10 10:23
Yes that carousel design was all around a bad idea. It either scrolls right past the next box or it starts to scroll ahead but then just rolls back to the box you were already looking at. And the ads are just bad, they pop up about every 20 seconds.
Nope
by ScoutB on 2016/01/07 02:29
Got the same ad three times in the first 30 seconds of use. Deleted the app 30 seconds later. I understand the need for advertising in free apps but this one is spam city.
Poor design
by Add fast on 2015/11/06 13:57
Does not work well. The carousel feature never stops where you want it and you have to look at storm team 8 every time you want to use it as opposed to just getting to the weather forecast. I personally like a split screen of hourly and 8 day the two most useful functions both seen at a glance when you tap it open.
Decent app
by Mitchell529 on 2015/06/09 00:11
Please make it so the app is optimized for the iPhone 6 also I don't like how it shrinks on my Phone
It's okay

Squinting to see my weather
by Twiseldorf on 2015/01/08 12:05
I want to use this app. I like that I am patronizing a local company, but the fonts are too small to see.
Great Concept
by Jemod on 2014/11/19 04:35

by Dean.787 on 2019/09/12 01:26
I had to uninstall the app tonight because every time I went in to see the radar a pop up advertisements get in the way, and the power it was taking 5% battery each time I went on to look at the storm, this is a bad app for saving lives, hi Highly would not recommend it, we are better off with the weather channel.
Great app, too many ads
by bekashane on 2017/12/13 05:08
The information in the app and presentation is nice, but is 4-5 pop-up, full screen, autoplaying ads (not all of them have an x to click, or go away after 15 seconds) on EVERY screen (radar, 8 day, etc) REALLY necessary? It's a huge turn off to wanting to use this app.
Just like everyone else
by DrDRum78 on 2018/12/19 13:11
Yep, agree with everyone else. Used to be a GREAT app, and one that was recommended amongst locals. Now, it’s laughable with the ads. Just got a new weather app that was recommended by a friend, works as well, with no annoying “take my phone over” ads. App deleted. Steffen & crew should be TICKED their viewers are leaving not because of its great content, but crappy advertising app labeled as a weather app.
Midnight sun
by Skorka8 on 2019/07/21 04:43
Latest app update now shows the sun icon during the overnight hours for the hourly forecast. Used to be the moon. So I guess that’s an improvement...that WOOD TV has saved us from darkness.
Accurate!
by Oiseua on 2019/11/25 13:30
We travel and use this app most of all because their forecasts arr reliably accurate. And the alerts timely.
Pop up ads are too annoying
by kpotje on 2019/03/05 11:56
I use this app all the time, but the new pop up ads are causing me to look else where for school closings and weather
Overwhelmed by Advertising
by Donstip on 2018/05/08 22:15
Useful weather data and very accurate forecasts, but the experience is completely ruined by the unending and annoying ads that constantly pop-up. I’ve taken it off my iPad. I’d download and use it again if WOOD TV would offer a no-ad, subscription option.
Fair app for weather
by Spindriftisland on 2017/09/15 22:04
Not a bad app but while I can accept some commercials, I draw the line when a full screen commercial pops up. Sorry folks but you just lost me as a customer.
Radar is good, but pop-up ads need to go!
by Dawn1051 on 2017/12/29 13:10
I’ve had this app for quite a while, but apparently they’ve decided to make as much money as possible by selling advertising in the form of pop-up ads. It’s incredibly annoying and frankly, the reason I’m deleting this ap.
Awful
by anparkem on 2018/04/15 11:39
This app is just as bad as the website. So many ads and pop ups you can’t even get through the list of closings! No point in looking or checking the weather.
Love the video hate the load time
by Noonepleasehavethisname on 2019/12/30 14:20
Watching the reply on weather is great, if it works. Tried reloading it. No better. Get it working and I’ll be back.
Too many ads!
by jr. grillmeister on 2019/09/08 17:45
Between too many ads and the amount of time the app takes to start this is almost worthless. I’d rate it less than a star if I could.
1.9 star rating would be much lower if zero rating allowed
by RmStar88 on 2018/05/02 09:28
WoodTv8 you need to pay attention to your viewers and not your advertisers. I would give this app zero stars if I could. Auto pop up ads with volume REALLY!
Different Hourly Forecast in Different Phones
by Jdjwndjjsjs on 2020/02/09 17:06
The weather app shows different hourly forecasts at the same time on different phones; a real head scratcher.
👎
by RonnieJH on 2017/12/07 11:28
Yes please get rid of pop up adds.. Very annoying!!!!!
No stars.
by sratson on 2019/05/23 12:57
Since the update on May 8, the weather app won’t load on 2 iPads in our house. Consistently get “Network Error”. Regular WOODTV app works fine. Something definitely wrong here...
All ads no weather.
by Eman172 on 2018/05/02 23:38
Extremely hard to use with constant pop up ads.
Ads are awful
by Melovefreeappsthatrfree on 2019/04/11 10:56
It is a shame that this app has so many ads, wood tv 8 has great meteorologists, but it’s not worth watching all the pop up commercials.
Constantly freezes
by KVanderZ on 2018/07/21 12:36
Every time an add pops up the entire app freezes and I have to restart it. Very frustrating.
Freezing
by gass2235 on 2019/05/16 20:14
It keeps freezing since the last update
Invasion of the pop up ads
by N F B on 2019/04/15 01:30
Ultra annoying!! Used to be pretty good, now it has constant pop up stupid ads. Update: WZZM 13 weather app is simple and w/o annoying ads.
New version glitches
by JenCastro on 2019/12/31 13:50
Is getting stick at the open screen.
Slow
by mermer1981 on 2017/12/13 19:23
Please update this app. It’s so slow, and the ads are really annoying
Pop up adds
by Very!Good56 on 2017/07/27 23:17
I used to love this app now with all the pop up adds it's annoying so it's time to say bye bye
Very buggy
by ajkubat on 2018/06/27 00:16
Used to be great, now won’t open, despite a reinstall. Have deleted it.
Pop up ads?
by Jake Bates on 2017/12/25 16:19
I can barely get through this app.
Ads, video, sounf
by MRSSPOCK on 2016/12/14 20:54
I used to like this, but now video ads pop up. And sound starts automatically. Bad when you don't want to use cellular data to watch the news. Try to look at text forecast and video with audio is running at the bottom of page. Will stop using until they fix it.
Literally the worst app ever.
by Catapulter on 2016/12/11 03:09
It would appear this app serves no purpose other than letting cash roll in from advertisers. How there are enough people using this app to keep them is another question, how the rating on this app is more than a single star is unfathomable. I have go through a merry go round and twelve thousand clicks of mostly guessing where I am going to read the forecast while being bombarded with ads and video that plays with sound at the bottom of a page and miles scrolling to find where the audio is coming from only to have to mute it again after trying to mute it once already. This is literally the worst app I have ever used. Every time I think it must have improved after a year or two, somehow it managed to get worse. After a day or two I had to delete it.
Good but...
by Monster maker 2345: on 2015/04/09 06:03
A great app with accurate information, the only problem is the future radar is very inaccurate! There can be a storm that takes up a whole state and then when you click future radar, it becomes a tiny little blip! Please fix the future radar for 5 stars!
It's okay
by therr750 on 2015/05/26 20:37
I'm not real tech savvy so after using this app for a couple weeks I'm not real impressed. It gives you the current conditions, a map that can be expanded or shrunk and a couple of forecasts but I'm just not impressed. I get better choices of details from the web page but, I'm just not tech savvy enough to dig the details out of the app.
Great to have detailed local weather content, but needs a few tweaks
by Kappab on 2014/11/19 02:55
This app is a great idea, but I would pay for it if it meant getting rid of the ads.I would also make swiping left the way to return to the home screen rather than tapping the woodtv icon
Update has too many ads
by Imagecrafters on 2016/01/11 01:45
I like the new app design. Runs a little slow and ads start blaring out when checking out the weather by day. Need to be muted with option to have sound. Annoying.
Too many ads
by Toy Dogwatch on 2016/12/11 17:33
This is a great app I like how it alerts you when precipitation is in the area especially lightning ⛈ is in the area this is really handy but one problem is you guys ruening a perfectly good app with to many ads get rid of all the ads and then it will be a 5 star app
Seriously?
by MrSkeezer on 2016/01/10 23:59
App is fine but do I seriously have to have ads that pop up and fill my whole page and then when you go to "x" out of it its in the same place that you touch to go to see the advertisers video. Dont think so! I can do better. I want the weather, not flooring and heating. I understand small adds, not ones that fill my whole screen.
Great local weather app
by jjk454ss on 2014/11/18 02:26
I like the app, I wish I could pay a little to remove ads. But the interface is great, the notifications are nice, overall great app.
Glad It's A Standalone App
by Nathan Krupp on 2014/11/17 21:23
Whenever I wanted to check the weather I had to go through the WoodTv app. I didn't like going through all of that, and now I don't have to anymore. In love! :)
Poor design
by Add fast on 2015/11/06 13:57
Does not work well. The carousel feature never stops where you want it and you have to look at storm team 8 every time you want to use it as opposed to just getting to the weather forecast. I personally like a split screen of hourly and 8 day the two most useful functions both seen at a glance when you tap it open.
Finally a great weather app!
by Lovethisbook421 on 2015/02/01 13:43
Love the features of this app! Radar is clear & there's nothing confusing about it. Thanks for making this !
Radar not working at all
by Tbomhof on 2016/01/13 18:19
Not sure why but radar is always clear skies even though it is raining or snowing. I'm bummed I had to download another app just to see what's going on. Also, the pop up ads are over the top. I know ads are needed, but every time I click on something?
Awful with the changes!
by Mammag488 on 2016/01/12 19:44
This used to be a decent app. Now it isn't worth the space on my phone. The new ad feature is beyond obnoxious. The carousel doesn't stop where I want it to stop. Then when it does, I get the ad that covers the screen, plays a video, and blasts audio. WWMT's weather app is better.
Scrolling scrolling scrolling
by CarylH.123 on 2016/01/10 10:23
Yes that carousel design was all around a bad idea. It either scrolls right past the next box or it starts to scroll ahead but then just rolls back to the box you were already looking at. And the ads are just bad, they pop up about every 20 seconds.
Ruined by adds
by West side 2002 on 2016/02/13 17:50
I know you need adds to support your app. But full screen commercials with sound is too much. Nothing like being in a quiet waiting room and go to check the weather to only have a commercial start blaring.
Way to Many Adds!
by Drew0207 on 2016/01/20 22:50
This was a great app when I first downloaded it with a lot of great information. Now as you go from one feature to the next adds are popping up making it very annoying to use the app. I will be deleting this app.
