This is malware 1/5
This app installs an account in your mail app called ‘redalertemergencies’.
You must go to settings->general->profiles to delete the mail account. You cannot do it from within your mail app or in the settings for the mail app.
Just use Safari to look up a weather report. There is no reason to put the security of your device at risk by installing this app.
Notification ads 3/5
I turned off Notifications because an ad for themselves popped up while I’m doing stuff. Not them stuff.
Good Weather App until recent update 3/5
Meets all my weather needs. It is annoying however that this most recent update includes ads that just randomly start playing without you clicking on anything. Up until that little (and disappointing) addition I would’ve given it 5 Stars.
Bells and whistles aren’t always a good thing. 2/5
Forecasting accuracy aside, I feel like this app’s performance has deteriorated over the years. It’s now so loaded with videos, ads, and graphics that it runs poorly on my iPhone 6S. Very laggy when scrolling and occasionally crashing. Much like The Weather Channel on TV, the focus has gone from providing a forecast to pushing viral videos and weather-related “news” in order to stay relevant. I don’t care. None of that matters if it’s at the expense of the app’s performance. It just makes me want to try something else.
The ads are taking over the app! 2/5
Need to be able to skip the ad’s and stop wasting people’s data!
For months and months the forecasts are always off they are never correct. EVER. Go to the weather channel.com website and then compare it to the app when you see this app is a piece of ----
Too many annoying ads. Is this a app for advertising agency co. Instead a weather channel. Because the ads the app wasting a lot storage/memory space. It's a ridiculous app. Go back to original version. Please.
I think this is better than the weather app the phone gives you! I wish everyone has this!
Used to be good 1/5
I used to be a diehard fan of this app. It slowly became worse with every update. Switched to Weather bug and I could not be happier!
You should try that app. You will thank me.
Stop muting my sound 3/5
Lately every time I open the app it automatically mutes the sound for any other app - podcasts, music, etc. Looks like it's tied to video ads in the app that auto play. There's no need to mute other sounds until/if I select a video. Very annoying!

Why do I have to watch the same add over and over again. It is infuriating!
Weather channel app "not compatible with this device" 1/5
Annoying error message. Every thing me an update is available.
You’ve killed this app 2/5
I’ve had iPhones since the 1st generation launched and I’ve always used the Weather Channel app rather than the Apple supplied app. However, this app has gotten so bloated with videos, ads, and additional information that it is now painfully slow to load and then it takes more time to be able to scroll down the screen. I am now officially switching over to the Apple weather app to cure the lag and bloat. Here’s the really funny part: the Apple wether app gets its data from The Weather Channel.
Bring back swiping between locations 1/5
You can no longer swipe between locations. Very inefficient. Is no longer recommend.
Can't Update App 1/5
I had to uninstall this app in hopes of being able to download the latest version. Unfortunately it still says "This app is not compatible with your device," and now I cannot even re-download it on my iPhone. Going to look for another weather app now. Hopefully they get this fixed.
Success I never want to buy from your advertisers! 1/5
I used to love to watch your little short videos! But you put an 12sec+ long add in front of every single one which actually takes at least 12+ secs to load then the actual video takes another 12+ secs - you want to make me never buy a product from anyone who advertises with you. Your advertising has succeeded!
Good for weather, if you like ads 3/5
Slowly this app seems to be showing more and more ads. Now, when trying to check the weekly or hourly forecast, a full screen ad pops up.
The weather forecasting is good, and the app worked well for so long.
But now there are more ads and videos than weather content.
Is this a tactic of slowly increasing the pressure to pay for ad-free content?
If so, it didn’t work.
Too slow 1/5
This app is horrible. It is too slow for me. There is a lag on every action I make.
Glitching Ads! 4/5
I love everything about the Weather Channel App—except for the fact that there is an advertisement attached to each video and that 50-60% of the time, it loads so slowly, glitching as it loads, that I just give up!
Spammy, can’t sign in 1/5
By Ed Brey
Sends spam push notifications, with no opt out option. Should really be opt in, but they’re not close to that.
Can’t sign in via Facebook. Signing in seems to be required to set up push notifications for severe weather that would actually be useful.
Ads free bologna 1/5
Just purchased the ads free version as I seem to always be inadvertently clicking on ads. Opened the app and guess what.... ads! Very annoying!
By Horizon pulse
App keeps crashing, I’m deleting this because of it, I can’t go back a single forecast without it crashing! Thanks a lot
New Update is dumb 2/5
By Xav's Mom
The latest update (11/2017) causes pop ups to keep appearing every time I open the app. I’m looking at the weather, and then suddenly, I’m looking at an ad. Very very annoying. Please fix this, TWC!
Too many adds 😞 way too slow ! Can't even scroll down without waiting...and now it won't update on my perfectly functioning iPhone 5 !!! Had this app from day 1 and now I'm deleting it !!!
Interstitial video ads have to go 2/5
I used to use it all the time. When I got a new phone I downloaded the latest version and its full of pop-video ads. They interrupt what you are doing. No thanks.
Would rather pay than be annoyed by interstitial ads.
Newest update 1/5
By unhappy iphone 5c user
Not everyone out there gets a new iPhone every six months. I happen to have an iPhone 5c and your software will not download onto my iPhone. Why is it that your advertisements download quickly and efficiently and your videos don't?
Just give me the forecast! 1/5
Finally deleted as the app is taking up almost a half a gig of space on my phone. Went with another app less than a third of its size. No interest in sensational vids or adds. So convoluted to have to search through everything for the basics.
Ads Ads Ads enough already 1/5
Wow Igbo have to watch that kid sneeze on his mom one more time. This app flat out stinks way to many ads
This app has become a joke 1/5
The weather channel tracks your location for ads and could care less about accurate weather. I fully understand that free apps come with ads. HOWEVER. I paid for this app way back when to avoid the ads. And these are over the top. First there is the privacy issue. Then the annoyance factor. While scrolling I accidentally open ads on a semi regular basis which is annoying to me and unfair to the advertiser. And each update it gets worse. Now I have a badge at the top for "points?!" I JUST WANT THE WEATHER.
It’s alright 2/5
Not very easy to maintain, kind of difficult to figure things out. Basic weather channel with not much info
I hate NOW 1/5
I have always loved this app, now with the recent update it will no longer swipe right or left to see your other cities. Please adjust this.
I never find this app accurate for my location. I suffer from migraines due to barometric pressure, my migraines are more accurate at forecasting rain than this app.
Drop the politics 1/5
By Game ruined!!!!
Just report the weather and drop using your app to showcase your climate agenda
Will not update iPhone 5c 1/5
Update will not download to iPhone 5c. Says my iOS (10.3.3 - latest version available for iPhone 5c) is not compatible. Frustrating that all my other apps continue to issue updates compatible with iPhone 5c but Weather app decided I'm not worth an update.
Slowwwwww and cluttered 1/5
I used to love the Weather Channel App. But it’s one huge marketing billboard now and it’s soooooo slowwwww to load the radar. Just Terrible!
Ok but.... 1/5
This is a good app and it is accurate, but it needs LOTS of improvement. It’s very slow and full of glitches, to the point where it takes me 5 minutes to be able to check the accurate weather.
Horribly slow and freezes 1/5
I've had this app for years and just the last few months it has started to freeze multiple times and stops working. I'm moving on to something that actually works. I don't have time for an app to be this slow and freeze this often, normally I only look at one location too
Used to work. Then upgrade refuses. "Not compatible with this device." Really? Not compatible with iPhone 5? Now not working at all.
Accurate weather, awful app 1/5
I have been a fan of TWC for years. In my opinion they are the gold standard for weather prediction and weather related news.
However, this is where the good things stop. This app is so clunky and slow. It often lags while I’m scrolling and the jumps to where it should have been. I also find that it crashes while loading radar and while watching videos. Since I have the iPhone 7 Plus I feel like this should not be happening on such a new and fast phone.
Overall, good content. Bad app.
Too many non-weather related videos! 3/5
The weather channel is supposed to be just that....weather. It takes forever the the app to load & scroll because of the “the world is ending” or “this is funny” videos! Please remove them!!
Data hog 1/5
So many ads that it makes performance an issue... but worse than that, it uses more cellular data than Facebook, my email or safari. Way out of line for the amount of information it actually delivers.
Accurate but glitchy 3/5
By Mrs Kitten
I loved this app, and have used it for years.. but anymore its so heavily laden with ads that it feels bogged down. I can’t even scroll down without it stalling and freezing or opening up unwanted ads.
Im cool with some ads, I understand that’s why I'm able to use it for free, but lately there have been more ads than content and its just really not worth fighting with.
It’s a neat app, I like the lay out, the information, and the accuracy. Its just too bad that it’s practically unusable due to all the ads.
Get off your high horse. 1/5
Youre not special weather app. I want to see a forecast. I dont want your crappy content to mute my podcast or music. I dont want your content to even be visible. I want a current forecast and 15 day out look. If i want to see some crazy weather phenomena or some interesting animal crap ill click it. Please let me continue to listen to my desired content while i check my weather without you self important pretentious pimps shoving your crap in my face.
Pop up ads 1/5
By the big richard
Didn’t mind the ads to scroll past, but with the addition of the pop up ads, I am deleting this app from my phone forever.
Look Elsewhere! 1/5
By Vermont Gardener#1
I wish I had never updated this app. Each one only adds more ads, videos and hyped weather stories. The latest versions are slow, become unresponsive & crash frequently. Ready to find an alternative.
Can't update on iPhone 5!! 2/5
Not sure what's happened but I have been unable to update your app on my iPhone 5.
Why isn't it compatible with the 5 anymore? I've had this app for years and now can't update.
Please make updates available for iPhone 5 again!
Used to be good 1/5
One of the worst apps I have on my phone now. Never updates have to shut it down and fire it back up. Not to mention the forecasts are always wrong.
The app is terribly slow to load and to move through the pages. Every update it just gets slower and slower.
Frustratingly slow and ad heavy 2/5
While I like the breakdown of hourly, weekly and pollen/allergy forecasts the app is incredibly slow to load. To make it worse, when trying to scroll through the forecasts the screen will “stick” as it’s loading the outrageous amounts of advertisements. The videos are interesting, but I refuse to watch them because I’m forced to sit through an ad EVERY time, for videos that are barely longer than the ads themselves.
I’ll be searching for an app that gives me the info I want QUICKLY without bombarding me with ads or charging an annual fee to be ad free. I’m not even sure if that really means 100% ad free, there’s so many on this version I’m sure there’s still some on the paid subscription.
5c phone 1/5
By ba and rr
Why no upgrade for apple c phone
