App Crashes! 1/5
App starts to load then crashes! Worthless during this Huricane.
I like this app! 5/5
I've had no problems with this app. I especially like the weather map feature which is partially transparent which has been good for seeing where the hurricane is, the weather bands, etc.
Easy to use and quick.
This app is not user friendly. We're in the midst of a hurricane. I click on the weather section and there's no hurricane on the map or info about it. There's no info on the site about citrus county when we have had an order for mandatory evacuation yesterday and storm surge warning today yet nothing listed on the app anywhere.
Total Waste 1/5
By Spokes Dude
Watch Bay News 9 any time, anywhere, or on the go?
Spectrum may claim this in their online advertising, but their customer service reps will tell you it isn't so.
This app does little more than link to the BN9 website. It may alert you to advisories, but I can't confirm that.
Spectrum is the worst thing that ever happened to Brighthouse.
Still the worst inaccurate weather app. Ugh.
Not the best
Weather map problems 2/5
This app has always been very useful for watching incoming storms. Since the last update it has been useless. The weather map is inaccurate and glitches. It doesn't play the first few hours when you tap the play button. I would rate it 1 star but am rating as a 2 only for the reason that I didn't rate before when it was a 5 and haven't used it for anything other than weather. Please fix it and up the rating.
NOT Improved, Just More Complex 1/5
Wether map has location issues. It labels locations near Flora City, Fl. as Pineola, Fl.; most people are not old enough to know where that is, including Google. Locations are now cumbersome to use, not user friendly. Older version was excellent; new version crashes a couple times a week. Data update rate of weather map seems to be cut in half as the presentation is no longer smooth, but is now very jerky. Overall, a very poor version when compared with the previous version.
Illegible small font 1/5
The new design is nice but the text in the news articles is so small it's illegible and impossible to read. The text sizing button on screen in the articles is not functional. No point in a news app that you need a microscope to read.
I can't update. 1/5
I can't update. It asks for password for different account
New software takes a little getting used to 4/5
The latest version of the software takes a little getting used to. On my phone it would not automatically find my location. Once I set my location the program worked fine. This is the most accurate radar for the area.
Worst update 1/5
The weather map doesn't even work and the app crashes constantly! Will be deleting this for sure.
Fix weather map ASAP! 2/5
The weather map takes 2 to 5 minutes to load. It's been slow ever since update 4.0. Please fix!
Can't adjust text size 3/5
I like the new layout and additional tiles of news features. However the default text size is super tiny, unreadable for me even with bifocals, and I can't adjust it. The feature to increase text size doesn't work, at least not on my phone (iPhone 6S+).
What happened? 2/5
The weather map seems to be having issues! The rain no longer seem to populate like it did before. I have played with the various settings and overlays but can't seem to find the right combination.
New fresh design! 5/5
Love the tiled layout and crisp design! No issues to report!
Bay news nine 5/5
By Guiding gaffs ch. jc uuc
wrong temperatures 1/5
it was about 52 when I left Treasure Island about 01:45 on 02 Feb 2017.
By 03:30, after I'd fed the critters and put my leathers away, I rechecked the weather using Weather Underground and the weather app that came with my phone...one said 50deg and WU said 49deg.
When I checked bn9 it said 62deg for the same time.
I checked the prefs to make sure the time and place were correct and after verifying everything was right, I deleted bn9 and made a note to warn my friends that that app was basicly useless.
I had to give it one star or it wouldn't let me complain.
was working 100% accurate until last update 1/5
this is unprofessional guys fix this crap i'm on $1000 phone that should not be happening make sure your crap works before you have people downloaded Jesus
Weather alerts/alarm work 5/5
By Old Gray Mare II
Recently woke to alarm on phone alerting us to take immediate cover. Indeed there was very settled weather very close. The alarm was sufficiently loud too. Honestly don't care whether other features are worthy and haven't explored fully.
Location access 3/5
By Jen near the bay
Instead of just "never" and "always", I prefer to set location services to "while using" the app. Please offer that choice in the next version.
Error "can't fetch information ". Happens each time I use.
Error Message 3/5
Why do I continually get an error fetching data message. Have deleted and reloaded app to no avail. Annoying as ....
Error fetching data 1/5
Ever since the last update I consistently get this message. I have even deleted the app and re installed, still same issue Hello WTSP
Great app, but it needs to text traffic alerts instead of email. My SYNC will read text messages to me so I can pay attention to the road and know if the traffic is going to be bad.
dont loke it at all 1/5
I cant figure out how to make use of this app. I think im so used to the weather channel app that i cannot figure this one out. TWC app is so easy to use compared to this one. All the warnings it gave me last nite during Hermine was lightning occurring. Really? thats it? Ive already changed my preferences and still does same thing. twc kept me updated at all times with teopical storm, hurricane and tornato warnings and watches right on the home screen for me to see, unlike tours i have to dig for the alert to see what it is.
Good local app 5/5
The overall app is pretty cool. I think it's awesome that I can get Klystron quickly with good options and overlays. The traffic app is pretty good too along with news. Definitely worth getting if you live on the central west coast. Great job Bay News 9!!
Does not work 1/5
Stuck on add a location, added my zip code ... No back button, nothing.
Great App! 5/5
I downloaded this app for the nearby lightning alerts. I don't want to get fried on a power pole trying to fix cable, lol. The app works very nicely! Thanks!
Best weather app ever. 5/5
This app is so good that a had to rate five stars this app has everything it's so nice and it's so helpful
Traffic - no cameras???? 2/5
Traffic is what I use this for most. Not being able to touch the camera and see what the traffic is doing is an epic fail for me.
Since I can no longer get the web page to load on my iPad Pro (it keeps refreshing over and over but nothing every shows up-going on for days now) I downloaded the app. Even worse! A huge circle with an arrow is over my zip code and I can't zoom in to see the rain . What the heck has happened. Used to be my go to for weather and breaking news. Please fix
Not worth it 1/5
By Nicholas PT
Hate the app. But I love Bay News 9, or at least I did. I periodically check bay news 9 for tropic updates, beach forecast etc... The FULL SITE is extremely informative. But this morning I noticed that I can no longer access the full site, just the "mobile" site. Which by the way, is awful. It's missing so much information. Literally contains just the radar. Guess I'm done with bay news 9!
Don't bother 1/5
No change since my first review. Would rather poke my eye with a sharp stick than use this app.
Obtrusive ads plus no landscape support plus horrible scaling in portrait mode equals one poor app. Don't bother until a professionally designed app is released.
LOVE It! 5/5
Thank you for creating such an informative and useful mobile app. It is my go to for all my news,weather, and traffic info. The "what to do" feature is an awesome touch for people new to area like me,not to mention the weather alert system feature.
Great work and you have a fan over here Bay News 9!
Radar inaccurate 1/5
Why does it show the Tampa/St Pete under heavy rain when there is none... Do the people that wrote this app ever use it... I doubt it...
Bay News 9 April 8 update does not download 1/5
By Peter 042756
Shame on Bay News 9
Nice but needs work 4/5
Needs two changes. Don't need alerts about my work location at 2am(!) and need to be able to remove custom locations when they're no longer relevant.
What could make it better 5/5
By Gavin ward 1105
The app is the best but what would make it 10 stars is if you made it compatible with the apple watch
Dreadful app 1/5
Tried to update and app will not complete update. Now I cannot update or delete. Bay news 10 much better app for tampa Bay Area
Next to useless 1/5
When it's raining it says the sun is shining and the sun is shining it says it's raining. I have even brought this to their "techs" attention and the response I got was you are catching skip from Orlando. You make the claim that klystron 9 is the most powerful weather radar in the nation but your data shows otherwise.
Can't get past the splash screen.
Don't Bother- worst for weather 1/5
Just deleted this App. News content is always old, and it is the worst app for weather. I receive storm warnings when it is sunny and clear and nothing when a thunderstorm rolls around.
Download the Weather Channel app- it's more accurate.
Used to work till iOS update 1/5
Worked good till Apple did the latest update now have nothing. Crashes as soon as I try to load it
Not the best weather app. 1/5
I prefer weatherbug over this app. Lately when you open this app, the app crashes immediately. There have been many occasions where it said it wasn't raining and i looked out my window to see rain. I drive with the top down on my jeep, so I have to rely on weatherbug to give me the correct weather report. That annoys me. For a local weather app to be wrong and inconsistent it shouldn't happen. You'd think they would be better with their reports. This app is not worth the space. I'll be deleting it after this review.
Crashes with 3GS with IOS 6.1.6 at start-up 1/5
Application will not open and immediately crashes on my 3GS with IOS 6.1.6. The previous non-plus version worked ok for me. Too bad it is no longer available.
I can believe it! 1/5
This does not work iPod touch or tablet and no star no 1 no 2 but it works perfect my mom phone!
Best app for Tampa bay 5/5
Most accurate weather
By Trivia nut 2
Used to barely work, now doesn't work at all, radar working would be nice. Crashes every time I try to access it.
No update in 6 months 1/5
And the app isn't optimized for the iPhone 6/6+. Please update your app
