Doesn’t switch cities
by duchapeau on 2020/02/20 01:16
Bad weather app for those who travel. If you switch cities, it says the new city at the top of the page, but still only shows the current conditions, and 10 day forecast, for Madison.
Not good
by gubagee on 2020/01/10 18:05
I can’t get it to open when needed. And when I can open it, the video doesn’t always work. Irritating. iPhone 11.
Won’t open half the time
by Knaught24 on 2020/01/09 19:02
Every other time I try to open it since the “performance improvement” upgrade a week ago, it is frozen on the opening screen and has to be uninstalled and reinstalled. Very annoying. We like it, but only if it works.
Nope
by notcarlajean on 2019/12/15 10:21
Put it on; took it off. Won’t open.
Opens with loud video, hard to read
by DDorena on 2019/12/09 18:36
Periodically, this app opens with a loud video making it inappropriate in many settings. The urgent weather updates are in video format with no option to read text, which is annoying and time consuming. And the main screens have a busy grey background that makes it difficult to read the print. Though I want to like this app with local weather, it honestly is not very good. I’m going back to my previous weather app.
Locks up on iPhone. Inaccurate on many occasions.
by Budcoop on 2019/06/28 03:30
Awful. I’m deleting it after this review and trying Weather Underground. This Tuesday it showed sun all day. So I leave my car windows down and at 9am it rains. I look at my app and it says currently sunny and still sunny at 9 am. Fire the person in charge of this worthless app. I’m rarely so disappointed.
Too many ads
by Rechargeable on 2019/03/10 21:37
Nice app but I would be willing to spend a little money to get rid of the ads. this is why I gave it two stars.
Download for the notifications
by Amandasthewalrus on 2019/01/21 15:34
Love the notifications. It’s great seeing local weather in plain speak. However, the app is full of ads. You have to watch a 15 second ad for news 3 in order to see the forecast. So, download for the notifications but don’t bother opening the app.
Come on...
by Anne HW on 2018/04/28 00:45
Talk about lack of interest. They still haven’t make this so it works in landscape mode on my iPad. And I don’t mind some ads, but this thing is loaded. The only reason I use it is because it’s pretty accurate for local weather.
Too many ads
by Oncle J on 2018/03/06 00:58
Too many ads, some are right in the middle of the screen. Obnoxious. This turned me off after 30 seconds, and I didn't bother to look deeper for features. I would not mind ads for the TV station to get me to watch their broadcast. But the ads are for cars and stuff I'm not interested in.
Display Mode
by Mgkuklin on 2017/07/05 05:56
App only works in portrait mode. I prefer to use landscape mode.
A huge step backwards
by Isbhod on 2017/05/29 22:39
1 star because we canning leave 0 or negative stars. Rule #1 of any UX be it mobile or otherwise is the NEVER play sound or video without the user's permission! Now while your app does ask if it can send user notifications that is done under auspices of alerts when there is severe weather in the area. At no point would I EVER agree to receive verbal alerts reminding me to use your POS app to check on my Memorial Day weather! Especially when I am trying to put a baby down for a nap you in considerate a-holes!!! You have ruined and destroyed the trust I had for Channel3000. The fact that you went for a cookie cutter, wannabe weather channel looking app made by the lowest bidder is beyond evident by how "craptacular" this weather app is. For example: Why does it take so long to load the animated weather on the map? Why are you not auto generating a gif that is auto uploaded to S3 and servers out via cloud front (or cdn of choice ) like everyone else? Why, when I get an alert about severe weather when I tap it I am brought to a loud obnoxious video clip?! A video clip that desperately needs the wadsworth constant applied to it. A video that takes it dear sweet time getting to the vital information one would need during a severe weather event. The same information that would be better served as written word vs. yet another advertisement avenue such as the ad you force users to see when they first launch the app (again putting more time between impending death and the vital information one needs to avoid it). It's bad decisions like the above and a myriad of other little things that show you don't care about your users and I highly recommend not to install this app, or if you already have to delete it.
Landscape option
by Jackster Mattkestr on 2017/05/24 13:06
Can't you add landscape for iPads?
Screen orientation
by Removed essential info on 2017/05/19 17:51
Does not change screen orientation. No landscape mode. Why did you implement the same bad UI design and issues as Channel 27's weather app? I switched to using your app instead of theirs when they changed the format of their app. Now you've copied the same poor design. I guess I need to abandon the use of this app now as well.
Good App But!
by ACMANTED on 2017/02/19 03:16
I enjoy your App but I really dislike all the spam mail I now receive. I will no longer use your App.
Love it!
by Dpatt77 on 2016/12/09 03:42
Love this app and how it is centered around Madison, WI. It's a must have for all in the Madison area. Took 1 star off because it still hasn't been optimized for iOS 10.
Radar
by Xcalak on 2015/12/14 00:45
Radar does not show precip. Been raining all day and radar shows nothing
Worst app for advertising
by Fudge_brownie on 2015/09/02 19:22
Any slide with the finger near one of their on screen advertisers will launch the advertisers web site. I swear sometime they launch by looking at them. Park Bank is nasty to get out of, some have a time to wait before closing.
Disappointed
by yukoncal on 2015/04/24 11:06
Very difficult to get working and overlays did not display, needs updating more.
Accurate weather forecast
by mutt4me on 2015/03/31 20:16
Seems good so far. Hope there will be a Notification widget soon.
Great upgrade
by Phutres on 2015/02/18 16:56
This ap is much more reliable than its predecessor . The forecasts are updated more quickly, and seem to be more accurate. It loads more quickly and has fewer annoying network errors. When I check the temp and hourly later it remembers to update its data instead of being stuck at the same hour I last checked like the last ap. channel 3000 is the most accurate weather ap for mad area in my experience.
From Great Weather App to Click Bait
by pharmguy30 on 2015/02/05 17:13
The best part of this app was easy navigation and a well-written weather summary. Now, they made navigation difficult and removed the summary along with several other great features. Weather info is now average at best. Worst part is that they placed ads above the top navigation bar. Almost impossible if you have semi-thick fingers not to hit an ad.
School closings NEVER load!
by SandyEnnis0817 on 2015/02/02 12:15
Don't update! School closings never load... It just gets hung up on banner ads.
Awful
by Maple lawn on 2015/01/28 17:43
If it wasn't broke, why did it need to be fixed? Takes multiple steps, and even then I cannot see what I want. Absolutely useless. DELETE!!!
Made for young eyes or really good lighting
by APT fan cdc on 2015/01/28 00:16
The fonts in this version are VERY small and the contrast is almost nonexistent, making it very difficult to read. It's also annoying that you have to scroll through the 'cards', and you can't change the order to get your favorites closer together. Very disappointed! Weather Channel or Accuweather are my go-tos now
Definite downgrade
by eabobeck on 2015/01/24 17:19
This version uses "cards" to show you the location information (radar, hourly and daily forecast) that used to be on one simple page before. You must scroll through the cards to get to the one you are interested in, and then it only shows a 1-2 hour or day preview. Basically, the user interface is now much more complicated and much more work to get the same info that was on one nice page before. Furthermore, the old app has been suspended so you can't use it and they force download of the new one. This used to be my favorite weather app due to simplicity and accuracy. I am now deleting both. Would NOT recommend.

Every other time I try to open it since the “performance improvement” upgrade a week ago, it is frozen on the opening screen and has to be uninstalled and reinstalled. Very annoying. We like it, but only if it works.
Come on...

Talk about lack of interest. They still haven’t make this so it works in landscape mode on my iPad. And I don’t mind some ads, but this thing is loaded. The only reason I use it is because it’s pretty accurate for local weather.
Download for the notifications
by Amandasthewalrus on 2019/01/21 15:34
Love the notifications. It’s great seeing local weather in plain speak. However, the app is full of ads. You have to watch a 15 second ad for news 3 in order to see the forecast. So, download for the notifications but don’t bother opening the app.
Good App But!
by ACMANTED on 2017/02/19 03:16
I enjoy your App but I really dislike all the spam mail I now receive. I will no longer use your App.
Locks up on iPhone. Inaccurate on many occasions.

Awful. I’m deleting it after this review and trying Weather Underground. This Tuesday it showed sun all day. So I leave my car windows down and at 9am it rains. I look at my app and it says currently sunny and still sunny at 9 am. Fire the person in charge of this worthless app. I’m rarely so disappointed.
Too many ads
by Oncle J on 2018/03/06 00:58
Too many ads, some are right in the middle of the screen. Obnoxious. This turned me off after 30 seconds, and I didn't bother to look deeper for features. I would not mind ads for the TV station to get me to watch their broadcast. But the ads are for cars and stuff I'm not interested in.
Too many ads

Nice app but I would be willing to spend a little money to get rid of the ads. this is why I gave it two stars.
Not good
by gubagee on 2020/01/10 18:05
I can’t get it to open when needed. And when I can open it, the video doesn’t always work. Irritating. iPhone 11.
Nope
by notcarlajean on 2019/12/15 10:21
Put it on; took it off. Won’t open.
Great upgrade
by Phutres on 2015/02/18 16:56
This ap is much more reliable than its predecessor . The forecasts are updated more quickly, and seem to be more accurate. It loads more quickly and has fewer annoying network errors. When I check the temp and hourly later it remembers to update its data instead of being stuck at the same hour I last checked like the last ap. channel 3000 is the most accurate weather ap for mad area in my experience.
Definite downgrade
by eabobeck on 2015/01/24 17:19
This version uses "cards" to show you the location information (radar, hourly and daily forecast) that used to be on one simple page before. You must scroll through the cards to get to the one you are interested in, and then it only shows a 1-2 hour or day preview. Basically, the user interface is now much more complicated and much more work to get the same info that was on one nice page before. Furthermore, the old app has been suspended so you can't use it and they force download of the new one. This used to be my favorite weather app due to simplicity and accuracy. I am now deleting both. Would NOT recommend.
From Great Weather App to Click Bait
by pharmguy30 on 2015/02/05 17:13
The best part of this app was easy navigation and a well-written weather summary. Now, they made navigation difficult and removed the summary along with several other great features. Weather info is now average at best. Worst part is that they placed ads above the top navigation bar. Almost impossible if you have semi-thick fingers not to hit an ad.
Made for young eyes or really good lighting
by APT fan cdc on 2015/01/28 00:16
The fonts in this version are VERY small and the contrast is almost nonexistent, making it very difficult to read. It's also annoying that you have to scroll through the 'cards', and you can't change the order to get your favorites closer together. Very disappointed! Weather Channel or Accuweather are my go-tos now
Screen orientation
by Removed essential info on 2017/05/19 17:51
Does not change screen orientation. No landscape mode. Why did you implement the same bad UI design and issues as Channel 27's weather app? I switched to using your app instead of theirs when they changed the format of their app. Now you've copied the same poor design. I guess I need to abandon the use of this app now as well.
Accurate weather forecast

Seems good so far. Hope there will be a Notification widget soon.
Worst app for advertising
by Fudge_brownie on 2015/09/02 19:22
Any slide with the finger near one of their on screen advertisers will launch the advertisers web site. I swear sometime they launch by looking at them. Park Bank is nasty to get out of, some have a time to wait before closing.
Display Mode
by Mgkuklin on 2017/07/05 05:56
App only works in portrait mode. I prefer to use landscape mode.
Love it!
by Dpatt77 on 2016/12/09 03:42
Love this app and how it is centered around Madison, WI. It's a must have for all in the Madison area. Took 1 star off because it still hasn't been optimized for iOS 10.
Awful
by Maple lawn on 2015/01/28 17:43
If it wasn't broke, why did it need to be fixed? Takes multiple steps, and even then I cannot see what I want. Absolutely useless. DELETE!!!
Landscape option
by Jackster Mattkestr on 2017/05/24 13:06
Can't you add landscape for iPads?
Disappointed
by yukoncal on 2015/04/24 11:06
Very difficult to get working and overlays did not display, needs updating more.
Radar
by Xcalak on 2015/12/14 00:45
Radar does not show precip. Been raining all day and radar shows nothing
School closings NEVER load!
by SandyEnnis0817 on 2015/02/02 12:15
Don't update! School closings never load... It just gets hung up on banner ads.
A huge step backwards
by Isbhod on 2017/05/29 22:39
1 star because we canning leave 0 or negative stars. Rule #1 of any UX be it mobile or otherwise is the NEVER play sound or video without the user's permission! Now while your app does ask if it can send user notifications that is done under auspices of alerts when there is severe weather in the area. At no point would I EVER agree to receive verbal alerts reminding me to use your POS app to check on my Memorial Day weather! Especially when I am trying to put a baby down for a nap you in considerate a-holes!!! You have ruined and destroyed the trust I had for Channel3000. The fact that you went for a cookie cutter, wannabe weather channel looking app made by the lowest bidder is beyond evident by how "craptacular" this weather app is. For example: Why does it take so long to load the animated weather on the map? Why are you not auto generating a gif that is auto uploaded to S3 and servers out via cloud front (or cdn of choice ) like everyone else? Why, when I get an alert about severe weather when I tap it I am brought to a loud obnoxious video clip?! A video clip that desperately needs the wadsworth constant applied to it. A video that takes it dear sweet time getting to the vital information one would need during a severe weather event. The same information that would be better served as written word vs. yet another advertisement avenue such as the ad you force users to see when they first launch the app (again putting more time between impending death and the vital information one needs to avoid it). It's bad decisions like the above and a myriad of other little things that show you don't care about your users and I highly recommend not to install this app, or if you already have to delete it.
