App and TV forecast vary greatly 2/5
The app says 80% chance of rain, but the TV forecast says 30%. The app is wrong very frequently.
Slowest app on the face of this earth 1/5
It’s a super easy app to use, super specific, all around great app. Except if I need to check the radar during severe weather, I’d probably die in a tornado before the thing loaded. I’m currently Co piloting in the car in downtown Atlanta traffic in severe weather and you people are no help to me except taking up space on my phone. Fix it, and I’ll give a better review! 🙂
From awesome to trash 2/5
This has always been my favorite weather app. The last few months I’ve had trouble with it not wanting to load. I have to keep closing out the app. Need maintenance!!!
What happened? 1/5
Update last night. Now app won’t even open.
I use the s every morning- am lost w/ out it.
BYW, the real feel feature quit showing properly weeks ago in the current reading.
Needs update 2/5
The app always shows feels like temp
as 0. App needs an update.
Where is the news? 1/5
I get countless notifications of news and stories that say open app to learn more, but when you click on the notification the story is not there, and no information about it is there. Half of the tabs don't work, the weather tab crashes the app. If you want a totally useless app that will never give you the information you want, then this is the app for you.
My Favorite Weather App 5/5
By Genie Menken
I have been using this on iPhone 7 for a couple months now and haven't experienced any of the problems mentioned in the negative reviews. I used this app for years on Android devices and have always loved it.
No alert came 1/5
Downloaded this app last night bc of severe weather rolling in. Wanted local alerts. Never got a one! Weather Channel app won't shut up. Very disappointed.
Just uploaded 4/5
So far so good..... I like how you can add different areas and title them. That way I can keep up with alerts for my college kid and parents. I also like how it includes traffic along with the weather. I was skeptical because of the bad reviews but it's James Span so how can you really go wrong? Taking the chance and trying it out
Great app 5/5
I love this! Works perfect for me. All alerts go off when it needs to and great radar!
Works great!!! 5/5
By Some Guy in AL
Added multiple locations and current location. Can switch between radar daily and hourly all in one place
By Lauryn & Logan's Mom
Just updated the app and all it did was ask for location and alert preferences. After that it immediately closed and keeps crashing whenever I try to open it! Please fix this ASAP! I use this app every day!
?!What Happened?! 1/5
By Jewelonly (Southern Dixie)
This is TERRIBLE!! App is crashing at opening. Wish I could show a negative star because there really is no excuse for an app to crash when you try to open it.
Trouble with app 1/5
I loved this app until about two days ago when I updated now after I answered the questions about location and settings the app closes by itself and takes me back to my home screen. Please fix this app because I love to use it every morning to check my local forecast. Thank you
Update isn't working 1/5
I love this app, but the update only had me answer location questions. Then it closed out. Every time I try to open it the only thing that comes up is that first photo and then it closes out. PLEASE FIX IT!
Update 1/29/17 1/5
After update opened app and answered location info and alert info then App closes down after cover page comes up. Tried repeatedly after turning phone off and back on. Hopefully y'all are aware of this issue and working on a fix.
I really love the app before this update.
Used to be great 1/5
By Secular South
Now it's just a gaunt shadow of its formal self. What a shame, and what a loss for those who once had a first-rate Alabama weather app.
VERY GLITCHY! 3/5
I had issues with it uploading with previous versions of iOS, but it is getting worse with ios8. It doesn't want to upload and now it is constantly saying it can't determine my location from the GPS. My other apps have no problem with that. I've almost stopped using it and rely on my IMAP weather app instead. At this point, if something doesn't change considering deleting, it's just taking up space! Very dissatisfied. Update: just deleted this app! Tired of it crashing 75% of the time when you try to open it! Waste of data! I downloaded so I could keep up with dangerous weather conditions and if you can't open it it doesn't do you any good! Rotten app!
Most unreliable app I know 1/5
By Johnny Faustus
Just plain useless. I don't believe the ppl behind it actually study weather.
Won't open or even function on latest IOS .. Please rebuild this once go-to app..
Bring back the blog and the yellow sun shines on the forecasts!!!! You ruined a really good app with the "update".
Horrible new interface. 1/5
By Reformation Consulting
This app keeps getting worse. Used to be great. Crashes quite often. New look is horrible. Bring back the old version. All the good reviews are from pre-2015...the old version.
Used to be my favorite weather app 1/5
By Sparkle Maiden
Where's the blog???? The new version doesn't have it anymore! I'm so mad! If you really want the app to be effective, we need the blog too! It's THE feature that made this app my favorite! And it's gone?! Fix this!
Like the old version better! 2/5
This app is okay. But I really liked the older version much better. I haven't upgraded my iPad app yet because I don't want this version. Please change back.
I have used this app for years, but am so disappointed with the latest version. I will be using a local competitor's weather app now.
Bring back old version! 1/5
By Time's a'wastin'
The old app was so much better - I especially do not understand why there is no link to access the blog! This is a huge disappointment so I will continue to use the old app as long as possible. I could change locations easier in previous version. The new app is also disappointing in appearance and readability compared to the old one. I see many folks agree - could you have just made the enhancements you felt were needed without such dramatic changes?
The last version was better 1/5
This version is like going back in time. The last version was better.
Poor Update 1/5
The initial version of this app rated 5 Stars. The last update is a poor representation of the prior version. The app freezes and is very slow to update. Would like to get my old version back
Old app better 3/5
The new app has smaller text which on my phone is hard to read. There is a "home" screen button that takes you to the start page for the app. There is a "home" button that takes you to where you choose a location. Poor
Upgraded version downgrade 2/5
I agree with the reviews. The original was way better. Why can't we leave well enough alone? It looks unprofessional and not as user friendly. The white font is awful.
Bring back live video 2/5
This app was much more useful before update. Please bring back James Spann 24/7 and blog.
Please bring back James Spann 24/7
Didn't get push notification 1/5
By Wxr man for a day
Tornado watch issued...no notification from this app. On the hunt for a new one.
Very disappointed after the update 1/5
By Logan Martin
Please revert this app back to how it was prior to the "update." My whole family used and loved it, but it's terrible now! What happened to the weather blog and radar?
It was great before the update. Please fix it.
Include blog 2/5
Layout is good but needs to include the blog and access to severe weather live stream as was included in the previous version. We are talking about something over a quarter million people in the state view every day. That alone should be enough reason to include it within the weather app. Also many of us rely on a portable way to view live stream in severe weather situations.
Update was a Downgrade 1/5
New version dull and hard to read. I see no benefit with the new app. Disappointing.
This is really a downgrade from the previous version. Readability is very poor (blue background with small white fonts), too much information crammed onto the home screen to make it useful, and no access to the blog. If nothing else, bring back access to the blog.
Where is the link to the blog and video? 1/5
Horrible update. This app is now useless.
By Rock barn
What happened to the blog? That's why I used this so in the first place.
I love James Spann, but if he approved this "updated" app then he needs his head checked!! It's hard as heck to read, light blue with tiny WHITE font?? The 10day outlook all squashed together in the SAME TINY WHITE FONT!! Where the heck did the blog go? What about the send weather pics? HORRIBLE HORRIBLE IHORRIBLE!!!!! Please at the minimum fix the font back to black atleast it would stand out more!!
Hate it!! 1/5
This used to be the best weather app out there but this new format is horrible!!! I love James Spann for weather but I guess I'll have to look for a different station's app cause this doesn't work.
Would pay to remove ads 3/5
I like the new look. Hate the ads. Makes everything seem cluttered and is a distraction.
Needs upgrade 1/5
By Chavy man 821
It used to work great on my old iPhone but it is now basically a useless waste of storage on ios8 it freezes when I try to do anything all I am able to do is look at the radar and not able to do anything else
Love it 5/5
By There are no names all are tak
I love this app it is always up to date and helps me to wake up when there are warnings or watches and helps so much in my life when weather come to
Please update 2/5
Doesn't seem to play well with ios8...either non responsive or crashes, either way it's unusable for me
DO NOT HAVE THIS UPDATE 3/5
According to this I am suppose to have the update from today I do not i still have the 2.7.12 and I upgraded to the ios 8 and now the radar is unusable it shows like it is already on my phone and it is not
Needs update 2/5
On my iPhone 5 when I check the weather here lately to see what it will be doing an hour or so from the time it currently is it skips 10-12 hours ahead :/
Best Weather App For My Area 5/5
Everything in one nifty app from James Spann and his team. Hourly weather for the day, link to the blog, alerts for pending bad weather. Loving this app!
James Spann in your pocket! 5/5
Being someone who hasn't lived in the ABC 3340 viewing area in some years I was so happy to find this app. I trust James Spann and the team to warn us of severe and non threatening storm systems as they move though Alabama. This is great for those of us slightly out of the viewer range, ie Dekalb County.
** The new update is amazing, and finally fits my iphone 5's screen. Thanks ABC 33/40!!**
