App keeps crashing 2/5
This app keeps crashing.
By Not a smiley face
I don’t need Toyota videos; I have a car that I like. I tried to buy the “remove ads” feature from the App Store, but it won’t connect. Two password changes later, it still won’t connect, even immediately after the App Store successfully updates other apps! Goodbye weather channel.
UPDATE: NEW UPGRADE STINKS 2/5
11/20/17 This update STINKS. It has for a while. I won’t hardly use it anymore because no longer can swipe right (or left) to see favorite cities. Since the app cannot even get my location correct, I used to swipe right to see the actual temperature where I live. I also used it to check on where my children live. But no swiping, oh no, now you have to jump through hoops to look at a stupid list. I’m not doing that just to find out the temperature where I live. They can keep this app. Useless.
Update: Latest update requires you to "Sign In" to receive alerts. I always got alerts before. I didn't realize I wasn't getting them until I clicked on the app and it asked me to "Sign In" with either my email or Facebook. Why TWC needs my personal info now, when it did not before is puzzling. Not really puzzling. The fact is, they don't NEED it, they WANT it! For a while the problem I stated below was resolved. Now, it still shows my address in a city 20 miles South of me. Odd though, they've quit showing my address period. The only place it shows up now is when I click the + sign to add a city. Every other app on my phone knows where I am, except TWC!
This app has been an overall good app and has always supplied me with accurate data. As for forecasts, not easy on the Gulf Coast, so they've been just fine. What is NOT acceptable to me, is when I'm sitting in my living room and TWC app shows me in another city approximately 20 miles South of where I live! The forecasts for these two cities are often very similar, but at times they are completely different. Let's face it, when a line of thunderstorms is rolling through, that line is somewhere. And sometimes that somewhere is between these two cities. When I first installed TWC app, it showed me in the wrong city. But, at some point, an update fixed the error. Unfortunately, this nice pretty update shows my house right back in the wrong city. So, to see MY weather data, I have to scroll over to the next page. Granted, not a major level of difficulty, but since the app was correct for quite a while, I'll get halfway through it before I remember it's not MY data I'm looking at! I don't understand why their GPS doesn't work better than that. PLEASE FIX - AGAIN!!!
Favorite locations not easily accessible 4/5
I’m disappointed that you can’t swipe between your favorite locations anymore. Not sure why this change was made but it makes that app less appealing to me. I hope you bring that feature back.
Screen space wasted 1/5
Have to click a circle to show weather?
Forecast screen have to scroll to see weather because it only utilizes like 20% of the screen? Remove all the overly busy parts of the app and show the actual forecast and weather information full screen rather than so tiny!
Scared of scrolling down. 2/5
Too many videos get in the way that I might accidentally tap on. And the videos also make it SUPER difficult to scroll down because it keeps freezing the screen. About to switch over to accuweather.
Too political 2/5
Just the weather, please...
Crashes a lot 2/5
By Abe F.
Great app but it always crashes shortly after I open it.
Step backwards. 1/5
They removed swiping between locations which makes using this app very counter intuitive and awkward. Please revert!
Go to for weather. 3/5
By Updates $^*%
Great app but it keeps forcing close on me in the middle of using. Please fix!
Data Hog 1/5
I use this app maybe once a day, but it has used the most wireless data of any app on my phone, Facebook and Buzzfeed included. There’s something wrong with your code, and you need to fix it.
Need to fix issues 3/5
I love this app, but since last update, I get kicked off app when hitting the back button. It’s annoying as heck. Please fix this issue.
Not bad but not good 2/5
I’ve had this app for a long long time. Usually pretty spot on forecasting. Easy to navigate. Home screen needs cleaned up. I don’t need videos crammed in between my forecast and the weather map. Most of the videos aren’t even weather related. You used to be able to swipe left or right to get your favorite locations. Not anymore. Searching for your favorites is slow and difficult. I also noticed that when your looking at your forecasts a video ad pops up now after a few seconds. Extremely annoying. If those pop up video ads aren’t taken away soon I’m deleting the app. I need the weather, not an advertisement.
When I open my app, I have it set to my current location. Several times now I have thought, "That temp can't be right." Then I look at my town via search. Totally different temp (by almost 10°), and - many times - a different forecast.
I just don't get it... frustrating.
I really, really hate the latest update. You have to scroll and swipe through a mine field of ads just to see what tomorrow's forecast will be. The ads were annoying before, but now there are more ads than WEATHER!!!
Back to good ol' days, PLEASE!
Needs Work 1/5
Crash, crash, crash.
App is so loaded with ads it barely functions. For a quick weather check use some other app.
I didn't think this app could get worse, now there is annoying pop up adds.
It's great.......when it actually works.....which isn't very often.... I actually downloaded another radar app just because this one hardly ever loads
Very poor app.....especially from such a big name
Just the weather... 1/5
I liked the weather portion on the app, but the videos, usually informative or funny, have gotten very politically driven. So, I finally deleted the app. I can get accurate weather on other apps too.
More bad updates 1/5
I know you have to pay your bills but the ads, pop ups and clutter are now a deal breaker for using this app.
Using another app.
By Tired Caregiver
Liked the old app where I could post my photos as the background
Too Bloated 2/5
The forecast is accurate enough, but there's too much extra crap. I could get a degree in meteorology and write my own forecast in the time it takes for all the alarming hurricane videos and irrelevant weather news from far away regions load.
Use it all the time, but missing important info 4/5
Sure would like the barometric pressure in the hourly forecast.
Hate the Videos tab 2/5
By Happy jolly user
I actually enjoy watching videos in your app but recently when ever I click on video,the Ad starts and freezes totally..please fix this
Would be nice to see different videos instead of reruns all the time other then that the app is great
Way to political 1/5
By Calculous Entropy
I stopped use this app and watching the Weather Channel because they put too much emphasis in “climate change”. Just give me the weather not politics
Annoying to switch locations 3/5
Since the latest update it has become annoying to switch between locations. Before you could just swipe to the next location. Now you have to pick it from a list. REALLY? So now it’s two steps to switch instead of a simple swipe, that’s an improvement? Sorry, poor design choice. Go back to the simple swipe or give us the choice to use.
Ready to delete 3/5
I’m starting to use this app less and less. Too many wrong forecasts in my area (western MA). A few days ago I took my bike into work because it showed ZERO chance of precipitation for 36 hours. When I got out of work eight hours later it was pouring rain and the forecast became rain for the next two days! The future forecast radar is always wrong and it’s unbelievable that they have a 15 day forecast. It is totally unreliable so don’t plan a vacation around it! It doesn’t get the next two days forecast correctly in my area so yes...will delete it soon! PS...it’s telling me the rain here will start at 10:15 when it’s actually going to end at 10:15. The arrow that I used to press to get to the radar isn’t working either....DELETED!
Used to be great 2/5
App performance has steadily gotten worse over time. Will switch to another if not better soon
It used to be good... 1/5
They newest update now includes the addition of pop-up ads in the middle of looking at radar or forecasts. This is a deal breaker. It has become too annoying to use.
By mikein philly
Takes for ever to load/. Ads are annoying. Difficult to go from city to city.
works worse 2/5
I guess somebody’s nephew got a app design job... but the app is not designed gracefully or efficiently any more.. weird unhelpful choices went into this update.
Ads on top of ads now. Almost unusable. 1/5
Was thinking of keeping it just for the weather alerts and then I realized- I don’t work in a hole. I can just look outside through a window and check WU if I’ve got questions. It’s been a long run, weather channel... goodbye.
Timing way off 1/5
I used to love this app and it’s rain or snow timing used to be darn near exact. Since September it’s been way off .... it’s usually raining 15 minutes before I get a prompt. So disappointed. Prob going to delete.
Excellent daily information.
Barely useable 1/5
The more I updated the slower it gets. Ton of video and ads that do not need to be there. It's at the point that should find an alternative for this.
Gave up checking weather
Used to be great. Even ok to pay for axing the over powering ads. Now A little slower to load. Everyone has bemoaned the loss of the ability of swiping between locations. Please fix.
The slowest App EVER 2/5
By Rick James Russell
This really pisses me off. It has gotten slower and slower! I have even tried deleting the app and reloading it and it still is slow. I don’t know what bugs they claim they keep fixing but it sure is not the time it takes to load this app.
Multiple city's saved 1/5
By Red eye II
I have multiple cities saved and I used to just swipe to find a saved city not any more.
Can't contact help 1/5
The screen is messing up on the home page and there is no way to contact support
Hypnotism hypnotic 1/5
If the same commercial has to play 15 times in a row there is something dangerously wrong with that🤔
Latest update 2/5
Wondering why I am getting alerts for areas over three hours away from me. I live in Mason, Oh and am receiving alerts for Jericho, Oh. They are north and very east of me.
Bloat! Slow! Horrible! 1/5
App has become almost impossible to use because it is so slow and unresponsive. It’s horrible. I love watching the weather but it’s focus is now ads and they have flowed the app to the point it doesn’t let you scroll or get to the info you need.
By Horizon pulse
App keeps crashing, but overall is good
Please remove the new pop-up video ads 3/5
I tried to leave feedback on the link but it's just FAQS. So now it's a review. This new version happs pop up video ads that are annoying. This was from the old days of web with flash and people built blockers to stop it. Why shove it down our throats??? It's ok to have ads but not take over my screen.
I want the Weather not all the videos that repeat over and over again!! The science is good.
But weather service has not gotten any better in the last 30 years. No one knows what they are doing!
Lose all the BS... less is more. I want the weather, hourly, weekly and radar. Don't need 100 videos. I have to swipe forever to see radar..
Gets Worse With Each Update 2/5
I have used this app on a daily basis for many years and in general it has been pretty good. Unfortunately TWC keeps tinkering with the app and they tend to worsen it with each new version. Over time the app functionality has degraded and it’s gotten overloaded with ads, features, junk that I don’t want. It needs to be simplified to just focus on the weather. I’ve found another weather app and am moving on. My main issues are:
• So many videos, ads, special features that the app takes a long time to open and has jerky operation.
• App accumulates a large Document & Data cache file that chews up phone storage. The only way to clear the file is to delete/ reinstall the app.
• App now has video ads that you can’t even scroll past without being redirected to a full screen video viewer.
• Swipe feature for viewing your saved locations has been removed or is non-functional.
• Too much special features, special topics, videos, ads, other unwanted stuff. TWC has lost sight of its mission.
Terrible version 2/5
The previous versions were good but this current one is terribly slow. I have no problems with any of my other apps. I finally just got rid of the app and will look for other options.
