They'll never put this on the review thread. Worthless app. Go to AccuWeather or look outside.
Beyond glitchy as of late. Be. Yond. And can I just start by saying why are the state abbreviations no longer capitalized??? It should be MA not Ma plzzzzz and tksssss. Also this app all the sudden freezes and crashes all. the. time. And now more than ever we need reliable weather telling what with all the hurricanes. Get it together friends at The Weather Channel. I deleted the weather app that comes with the iPhone cause I thought your app was better and now I'm having second thoughts. Action needs to be taken.
Used to be my favorite, but things change. 1/5
By Tennyy Geldbaughh
App has gotten progressively worse. I have 5 or 6 locations set as favorites, will only load every other one. Literally can’t swipe over to some of my other locations. Just get an error, hoped it would be fixed with recent updates but none have solved the issue. Will be deleting soon if not fixed.
iPhone 5c no longer supported 1/5
I can no longer update this app because apparently the latest update dropped the iPhone 5c as a supported device. Is the weather channel getting some type of kick back from apple to force people to buy new phones?
Last update is crap 1/5
App takes forever to load and freezes. Videos do not load. Garbage.
Horrible Update 1/5
I really enjoyed this app until a few days ago when some random update occurred. This update drastically slowed down everything in the app and it's sometimes impossible to find out the weather in my area and the forecast. Either fix this or I'm finding a new app...
Login issues 2/5
I cannot login
Ruined the app 1/5
Sooooo slooooow to load! I'm not sure if it's the video feature or what but this new update almost renders the app useless.
App not working 1/5
Since the latest update, the app opens to a blank screen. I’ve tried deleting and reloading, but it still doesn’t work. Please fix.
I have an iphone 5 and it will not let me do update because it says its not compatable with my phone
Took the update and now nothing shows up 1/5
By Chele's iTunes
I took the upgrade today and now my app won't show the temps. It will show the sun and moon but no temps or maps. Anyone else have that issues?
Is this a joke? 1/5
There’s literally nothing in the screen. Ive closed the app out and restarted it twelve times even restarted the phone. Nothing but a blue screen. Nice update.
don't get your hopes up 1/5
this app CONSISTENTLY crashes! if you want a reliable app for weather look elsewhere.
The radar has gotten crappy
VERY DISAPPOINTED! Support Device!! 1/5
By Angry in Ohio 9/2017
Up until recently, The Weather Channel supported my Apple
i-phone 5c and I LOVED viewing this app periodically every day. Now, I can't download it because it states that "This app is not compatible with this device." WHY THE CHANGE TWC??!!!??
Not happy with you at all anymore! I can't afford to upgrade my phone by 1 just to be able to use your weather app again!! It's nonsense! Using other weather apps now that I'm extremely unhappy with. When you stop supporting the i-phone s, which is next in line with Apple, nobody in my family will be using your app then either! We all can't just update our model of phone to use your app! Too much $$$$. For now I'm the only one getting jerked over though!! : (
I'd give it a 0 star rating now if I could because you've dropped me!
It would be greatly appreciated if you could pick us "i-phone 5c" users back up, it's not THAT old of a model and I have no good reason to buy a newer phone at this time!

App Updates 2/5
By ATL Jazzman
Message on most recent iPhone update says "cannot be downloaded on this device". Uh oh.
Setting alerts annoying 1/5
I’ve been trying to set alerts and choose which alerts I want. The app states to tap on location to proceed to receive alerts but after doing so it takes me back to the settings page with alerts off. I’ve tried activating alerts multiple times and it continues to do the same crap.
Something is wrong!! 4/5
I love this app but... My app isn’t working since the last two updates! Hope you get it fixed soon!!
Sorry I updated 1/5
Before update app ran smoothly, updated version is awful, time consuming and frustrating...
New versions have ruined this app 1/5
I've used this app for years. This used to be my favorite weather app, but with the latest update versions the ads are so invasive it's hard to get the information I went to the app for.
Not to mention the forecasts are no longer as accurate as they used to be. Unless it improves I'll be moving on and deleting this app.
Latest update 1/5
I cannot get the update to install. It gets to a certain spot and i get an error. I have been trying since sep 17 2017. Still will not update on my iphone 7 plus
Gets worse with every update 2/5
This app used to be user friendly and reliable. But with every update it's gets more infuriating to use. The load time to open the app and the lag within the app are terrible. It's difficult to distinguish between interface elements and numerous advertisements. If the experience doesn't get better within the next couple of updates, it's time to delete.
This app used to be great. Now, all it focuses on is shoving ads down your throat. The weather information is hardly accurate and when I have location services turned ON, it's telling me my current location is actually 45 minutes away from where I live. Ridiculous. The usability of the app has gone downhill. The ads and videos slow down the app to a point I cannot even scroll to get to the weather.....the reason why I opened the app in the first place. I don't mind watching the videos with the ads but what pisses me off is when the video blacks out after you watch the ad and doesn't even play. So if you want to see it you have to play the ad all over again Coincidence? I think not. What a money making scheme. Maybe you should focus on what you people went to school for. Predicting the WEATHER.
Full of adds and videos not related to weather 1/5
After using this for more than 3 years , i just deleted it, i just want the weather not adds , not cat videos, not car insurance. Was getting slow and glitchy, would try to swipe down and it would not, very very mad about a trusted corp. Just loading their app with crap, bye MF
Won't allow me to do latest update 1/5
Although I wasn't thrilled at the previous update, I was getting used to the changes. I got the notification that there was a new update, but it says my phone (iPhone 6) isn't compatible, but it clearly states that it should be. Guess I'll be deleting this app.
We need AR for this 5/5
I love this app its the best weather app in my opinion. But we need A feature that has Augmented Reality for iOS 11. For example, if theres a hurricane. You could see it in AR. Or clouds and other things.
Declines with every update 1/5
September 21. 2017 - another update, running 9.11 on iPhone. Slight improvement over the earlier version this week. Locations will update if you are not logged in. If you login, you will get "no internet connection". Sliding from one location to another is super laggy with no visual indication that it happened until the screen refreshes. Question- do you test your software before you release it? If you think you are, well....
September 19 2017 - stopped working completely. Unable to update forecasts at all. Says there is no internet connection but there is as every other app works!
June 2017 update - this app continues its decline. The most recent update erased all saved locations, there is no intuitive way to save locations. Ads increase and continue to get slower as well. Broken app.
Used to be my go to 1/5
This app has gotten unbearable, so much so I ditched it all together. There are so many ads you can't find the weather. It has gotten harder to navigate, now takes longer to load, and crashes all the time. It is quicker and easier to just google the weather. I now use weather underground.
Why so slow? 2/5
I used this app all the time but a few updates ago it got much slower. It takes 7 sec to come on and show me the basic forecast. Wunderground only takes 2-3s. I prefer the look of this app but if it stays so slow I'll stop using.
Haven’t had it work in iOS 11 yet 1/5
Haven’t had it work in iOS 11 yet
Widget doesn't update 3/5
Widget is usually wrong
Hurricane Central crashes!!!!! 1/5
Can't click on "Hurricane Central" without the app crashing. Terrible!!!!!!!!
Space out control 1/5
Since when a weather app takes 1G of space - that's totally inaceptable. Went back to yahoo weather - use to this app
The app is slow and I still can’t check out the full 15 day forecast.
The voiceover only says text possible but won’t read the forecast and I still can’t scroll down the entire forecast.
These issues are bad and need to be fixed.
The app is unreliable and freezes. Way too much junk to scroll down just to get the weather. I don't want videos or any ridiculous stuff, just the weather. Most of the time I can't even use this app because it doesn't work. The app icon is now white with grid lines.
My opinion 5/5
I really like this app. It gives me just what I ask for.
Why even pay? 1/5
The app offered for you to pay to remove ads, which I did, and while I like TWC the paying to remove ads and it didn’t remove them, well this to me makes this app, a scam app.
All avenues were tried from closing phone out and reinstalling and nothing!
TWC you are shortcutting in progress.
Used to be good 1/5
Stop worrying about whole screen ads taking over my screen and operate correctly. It’s sad that the app works so poorly now because you as a maker chose money over function. I’ll use another.
Slow and very few features 1/5
Used to be my favorite app but it takes 5 minutes to load a single forecast now. And with far fewer features than most of its competitors, this app has rendered itself useless. Lots of ads too...maybe that's one of the problems.
Going downhill 1/5
I've had the app for many years and loved it until recently. Despite the update that came out today, there are glitches galore. I can't swipe to see weather in the cities I've saved bc it takes forever. It closes on me constantly and I can tap on videos and they won't play. Please tell me they're fixing this bc this is the app I go to many times a day. I love your videos, etc. and now o have almost no reason to have this app.
Obnoxious ads 1/5
I come on this app to check the weather, not to listen to obnoxious advertisements that play automatically.
The app keeps crashing 1/5
By Wolfpack 11av
When using this app it usually shuts down after a few minutes of use. When trying to expand the hurricane map info it shuts down. I un-installed then reloaded the app and still have the same problem. The developer needs to fix the bugs in the app before anymore updates
Why fix what ain't broke? 1/5
The app automatically updated overnight, now it doesn't load past the splash screen 🙄 I use(d) it every single morning.
Too many ads! Bad content. 1/5
By Ryan Brow
The ads on this app are ridiculous and ruin the user experience. They are everywhere and as you scroll the page, you accidentally start them. There are several that you can get caught in and you have to leave the app completely to get out of. Almost all the videos start with a 15 second commercial and they are usually the same ones over and over again. When you finally get to the video, you'll find the content is usually pretty bad and was not worth sitting through the ad. Pretty bad forecasting for Salt Lake City as well.
Final fantasy ad 1/5
Please take the stupid final fantasy ad down, I keep accidentally putting my finger near it and it opens and I can't get out of the stupid game without turning my phone off and back on. The black x does not work!
Pop up ads 1/5
This version was fine with the previous ads but now the ads pop up on the whole screen and you have to “X” out of them. I immediately uninstalled and will not reinstall until after these invasive ads are removed. With what’s going on with the weather these days, I don’t have time to play around with ads! Irma just hit me and I’d like to stay on top of the weather without being sold on a Final Fantasy mobile game 👎🏾
Really Annoying 2/5
There seems to be no obvious way to manually select videos to play. I'm tired of having to pause and close videos I have no interest in. Can't even find the data I want in this interface. Clumsily implemented and very unusable. Some developer's idea of "cool" with no understanding of how a user needs/wants to use a weather app.
Too many ads 1/5
Love the Weather Channel hate the app. If your goal is to force people to Pay for ad free or quit it worked. I quit. During recent catastrophes to see pop up ads every 10 seconds was infuriating. Bye bye.
Terrible App Support 1/5
The weather app won't upgrade to the latest version even if you have iOS 10.0 or later on your iPhone 5.
What the $@ happened? 1/5
This was once the gold standard for weather apps, but no more. Takes 10-20 secs to load, navigation is sticky and slow.. feels like you sacrificed performance for a few more pretty pictures.. wrong move.
