KY3 weather app 2/5
By Dylan McLean
👎change the weather app
Not visually pleasing 2/5
The weather section on the KY3 News App is superior to their stand alone weather app which is hideous. Please change it and maybe I'll download it again. I keep checking in the App Store to see if it's been updated, but no! Different developer?
Thank you 5/5
I wanted to take a moment to express my gratitude to the entire KY3 team for working hard to keep people informed when severe weather is on the rise. The app is easy to use, keeps me updated minute by minute and the video blurbs help me to feel like y'all are right there with me. Thank you for helping me keep my family safe!
best weather 5/5
this is great for forcast and checking the weather
I loved this app before the update 2/5
I wish it'd go back to showing the 7 day forecast with the pictures (simple) like it shows on the news. This is just too small and smashed together and dark for me. And I'm 28 with perfect eyesight. I wish I never updated it!
Settings won't work 3/5
By Lightning warnings??
App works okay except the lightning warnings won't turn off. I have went under settings and disabled them and they still wake me up all night over and over! Please wake me for a tornado but not lightning!
Ron Hurst get out of my room!!! 4/5
So I have no complaints with the app. It works great it's. Great for knowing what the weather is like in my area. But, when there is a thunderstorm going on and it's three in the morning I don't want to wake up to the sound of Ron Hurst saying "Lightning has been detected in your area." I understand that you want me to know when there is lightning nearby but like I mentioned, I don't want to be waken up to the sound of a meteorologist at 3:00 am.
Rarely works 1/5
Get Weather lab app
Radar doesn't work 2/5
I want to give this app 5*. I want KY3 to be my go to weather app. Alas I can't and won't since it doesn't work. Kinda pointless with no radar.
Works at times 3/5
I love the live warnings the app gives you (i.e. Lightening detected near you). In the beginning the app worked perfect but now the radar never works. It's been that way for a few months now. That's why the low rating. But besides that the app is great and accurate.
Great Weather App 5/5
This is a great weather app. Has everything you want, but not too much.
Bad weather 1/5
By Un happy happy
Poor. Radar and image are not worth looking at. Sends me notifications I that lighting was detected 4 miles from my house when there is no thunder or lighting present.
The app is buggy 2/5
By Evil Outrage
Everything else using data on my phone works but on the KY3 app, it sometimes says no connection even with 3 or more bars and 3G. When I hit play on the interactive radar map, all the snow and everything disappears.
Hourly precipitation gone 2/5
By Hourly watcher
Why was the % precipitation removed from the hour by hour screen? This was very helpful to let us know at what time precipitation was expected to start. Please bring it back.
Great app for local weather 5/5
By Xx YOiZ xX
Works great and accurate for your location 👍
A huge step backwards :( 2/5
The previous version of this app was far superior. This newly redesigned app has tiny bland icons on a vertical forecast layout....while the previous version had colorful easily readable graphics in a nice horizontal 10 day(2x5) rectangular display. Please PLEASE bring that back. I REALLY miss it! KY3 weather was always my go to app for local weather info and I'd use it all day everyday, but now I've been forced to abandon it in favor of the (previously) inferior Weather Channel app. If I'd known how badly they ruined this app I'd never have upgraded it. Please listen to these comments and fix this. I miss the previous version!
Awesome app. 5/5
Really easy to navigate!
App crashes all the time 1/5
It crashes all the time. Plus is inaccurate more than half the time. It was raining Saturday, but the app showed no rain. Then Sunday, it showed the storms from Saturday passing through. Also, it keeps asking me to set my location.....it should know where I am....gps hello!?!
Dropped this one and went to KOLR. It works and is accurate
I don't like this app. At all. Last night there was a bad storm and I had no electricity, so I couldn't check the TV or the app on my iPod. My siblings were extremely scared and then I find out the next morning that there had been a tornado warning and I didn't know?! Way to go KY3, way to seriously scare someone. To make this app better I think you should make it to where you don't have to use Internet to access it. It could save many more lives, just saying. But until that happens, I'm giving this app a bad review due to last night.
Arkansas man 4/5
I find this to be a very good weather app. I like how you are able to pinpoint your location on the weather map for more accurate reports. I was able to drag, and pinpoint right on top of my house. I don't understand all the problems that the other reviewer's seem to have with this app as I have not had any issues at all with my iPhone six. I also use the (weather underground) app which is very good. I will keep both as they both have good features, and I can toggle back-and-forth using each one.
Crash, crash, crash 1/5
There's nothing to review! After the latest "bug fix" the app refuses to run. I just get a full screen logo and it immediately dies. 100% of the time. Before the "fix", it would load and then die about 80% of the time. iOS 8.1.3 on iPhone 6, multiple networks. Ready to just delete the app. UPDATE 2/20: I quit. It's a total waste of time. Deleted!!
Not an upgrade 1/5
Once again a supposed "upgrade" ruins a once wonderful app. This new version is horrible. I track weather where family live and used to be able to just look at the top bar to see other locations temp and weather type. Just one example of lost features. Who comes up with these dumb-downed upgrades? I will miss the old app.
Bad App! 1/5
I cannot make this work. Have had it for years but the upgrade will not hold. I have the 7 version, upgraded, did the settings, and it all shows the proper upgrade but when I turn it off and turn it back on, it has reverted to the old version. I click on upgrade, it goes to Open, then it is correct until I turn it off. When I turn it back on it has reverted to old version again.
Use it all the time 5/5
This version terrible 1/5
Before the last change this was my go to weather app, nation wide. Now it never works right, if it even comes on without immediately shutting down. Come on, bring back the old version!!!!
Highly don't recommend 1/5
If I can't use the app without push notifications then I won't use the app...
App will not open???? 1/5
Opens only once out of 10 times!!! Need to fix....
Please fix this! 1/5
I want version 2.7.17 back! That is the last version that was reliable. With constant crashing, the versions since the launch of the "new look" have had serious stability problems. Please find a solution.
Update: Still unreliable. Are you listening?
Doesn't work 70% of the time 2/5
Soooo I've had the Ky3 weather ap for a long time now. Before this last update the ap never NOT worked. Now...seems like the ap doesn't work most of the time. I open it, it freezes and the it shuts itself down. I don't use the Ky3 weather ap any more, as of today I will use the weather channel ap instead.
Was much better 1/5
By Marvelus One
The last version was much, much better the new version is very small. I have an iphone so the screen is not massive but I was able to read the previous version. Please fix this or go back to old version.
Used to love it 3/5
The most recent upgrades have ruined this app. I don't like the looks quite as well, but most importantly, it doesn't function well at all, locking up or shutting down. I look forward to a fix.
My husband and I have used this app for years but now it crashes within seconds of startup.
This app is disappointing to say the least. I have 4 weather apps. There have been several occasions where 3 of the national weather apps have forecasted rain. The KY3 app won't even have rain on the radar. I'll look out my window and it'll be raining! This morning, the other 3 apps reported freezing rain, snow or a wintery mix. KY3 reported rain. Low and behold, it was currently snowing. I honestly don't know who controls how weather is forecasted at KY3. The weather people should move to San Diego where the weather is the same almost everyday and can't possibly be completely wrong in forecasting.
Weather app 1/5
Since you changed the looks of this app I have not been able to get the weather most of the times. In severe storms I was able to get on the app and find out when and where the storms were and now I can't even get it to work at all. Please fix it was really good several months ago.
Great when it works 2/5
Very nice app with nice features, but usually doesn't work upon start up (app will close automatically). I have to try to go into the app 4-5 times before it starts displaying data...if I haven't given up by then. Guess I'll be looking for a weather app that works.
Not near as good as the last one.
Update NOT user friendly!! 1/5
By Cottage cheese monkey
I used this app multiple times a day to check weather forecasts. I could tell at a glance what the 10-day forecast was. Now the graphics are the opposite. I have to study the graphics to interpret the forecast. The app is now user UNfriendly. Please change it back, KY3!!
I used this app at least once a day since I first saw it advertised on KY3. I have told several people that it is the best app on the market. Not now! Since the update the graphics are no longer easy to read and it's not near as simple to use. One of the great things about the app before the update was how similar it looked to what I saw on the news broadcast every night. Please don't change your graphics on TV to this garbage. If the app doesn't change soon then I'm going to have to delete it and use the Weather Channel app or Yahoo Weather permanently since that's what I've been using since the update. DONT FIX IT IF IT ISNT BROKE!!!!!!!
Not Good. 1/5
I always loved this app. However, the latest update has made it less user friendly and hard to read. It also crashes constantly. I hate this update. I'll be switching to a new weather app.
Terrible since update! 1/5
App no longer enables you to view 10 day forecast.
New upgrade awful!! 1/5
Have always loved your app but the new upgrade doesn't work at all. Crashes every time I open it before it gives me any weather info. Please fix?!?!
Love having an accurate local app! 4/5
I love the app, but I also love reading the KY3 storm team discussion on the web. I see the start of the discussion under the "Blog" section; however, when I click on it to read in entirety, it redirects to a different page without the storm team's discussion. If I could read the entire discussion, it would be the best weather app!!!!
I'm infatuated with this app!
It's giving me the wrong time. 1/5
It's giving me the wrong time.
Good app 4/5
Bring back the radar future cast!
Way better than other weather apps, this is a good app!
Change it back 1/5
I hate this new app unpdate. It's just bad. I can't even find the radar. I am going back to the weather channel. It works.
Still not great.... 2/5
Wish when you swiped from the left to right it took you back to the previous screen, not the previous story that I didn't want to read in the first place...
Great App 4/5
Such a great app. Gives such accurate readings on the weather all around the world and right outside your door.
Black screen of death 3/5
By Sgf weather
I updated this app a few days ago, and it simply would not open. Tapping the app makes the screen go black and freeze up. Deleted and reinstalled twice, then tried the KSPR weather app. Same result. I'm on iPhone version 4.3.
