Better than WSB 5/5
By UGA Alum 93
I have used WSB’s app for years. After realizing that WSB’s was not as good as it used to be I looked around for another ATLANTA-Based news outlet for a weather app. This one is outstanding. I love the very robust radar. Thanks Fox 5.
Fox5 weather 5/5
Best storm team
Fails too often 2/5
Have had the app for about 2 years, but it fails way too often. Says “network error”! Then I have to delete and put it on again. Have an IPHONE 7, don’t have problems with any other app.

Love the app and weather info WHEN IT WORKS.
More often than not, I get a network error and it tells me to make sure my iPhone isn’t in airplane mode. Does the same on my mom’s phone too.
Won’t pull any weather data, so the app is useless. I have to uninstall and re-install to get it to work.
Also, the ad that it shows every time you open the app is annoying. It sits on that screen for like a minute and it’s about an amusement park in FLORIDA. So irrelevant. Makes it obvious that it’s just to make them $
Uninstalled from all my devices.
Big problem 1/5
An alert appears. I touch the alert. The app opens. I then click the main phone button, and my main screen comes up. This action bypasses all of my Iphone security.
This app is removed as of now. Let me know when the security problem is fixed. Otherwise i find the app useful and well done.
Wow! I cannot thank Fox 5 Storm Team enough! I was staying at friends house and had fallen asleep when my phone went off with the tornado alert! There was a local tornado and I was able to call and inform my family at my house down the road! I was so happy to be able to be alerted when something bad was headed towards me or my family! Thank you so much for taking care of us and for being the BEST weather app ever!!!!
Open for weather to see an AD you cant bypass 3/5
Why... when I just want to see the dang weather do I have to stare at a roller coaster ad for a comatose that isn’t even in this state... oh and it sits there for about a minute before you can see the dang weather map. Come on!!
Used to love it till they started adding ads 2/5
They apparently don’t care either, because I have complained.
Total crap 1/5
By Art Moran2
This is garbage.
Need Apple Watch and Apple TV apps 3/5
I enjoy these apps, fox5news and storm app but it’s limited on devices. Please add to other devices!! You’re behind the times and forcing us to use other apps on Apple TV for viewing on TV.
So far so good 4/5
Like all the features but like all the other weather apps , no mention or the ability to get information about fronts that are passing through my area
Can you add the pollen count to this app, its greatly needed here in Georgia, other that that this is. 5 star app
After the fact 3/5
I am getting notifications after the rain comes through my city, which is no warning. Need to know just before.
Good but needs work 3/5
Each release gets slower to load. Overall, a good app, but could use some optimization.
Need Landscape Support 3/5
Nice app button does not work in landscape mode, would be nice if developer made support for landscape mode in iPad
Recent update 3/5
Do not like it—- too busy. If you were going to change anything, why not the color of the city you have selected.??? Now with this new update when you want to see daily or hourly an ad pops up on the screen— really is this the best you can do ??
Hate this app for the iPhone 1/5
Don’t download! Has problems loading and then forecloses. Waste of time.
No longer updates for iPad 4 3/5
iPad 4 9.7" will not accept or support beyond version 4.5.1800
What a crock, live in Blairsville, you can see some dark clouds coming in.....almost 5 minutes AFTER we get 50+ winds, hail and lightning the app tells me a severs storm is in my area...really? Then the app says lightnings been detected nearby...again, really??? again almost 5 minutes after its been hitting...it is NOT up to speed

Bye Felicia 1/5
By ice creammmm
Loved the app but you decided not to include 5c in updates
Yes I have a dinosaur, but I was taught "if it ain't broke don't fix it!"
Wish you hadn't
App doesn’t open past splash screen 1/5
After last update the app no longer functions. It will load and freezes on the splash screen.
Good but need landscape view for iPad 4/5
By App Leman
Really informative app. I like that it’s specific to the area I live in. The problem is that part of the content is cut off in landscape view on iPad. If you rotate the iPad vertically then the full content is viewable. If you fix this it would be great!
By Ga craigues
Shorten the splash screen - or let the user shorten it via options.
Y’all are decent to look at but you’re not the point of the app!
Fox 5 The Best 5/5
By Kasey kenneth kahne
I’m Same Way To Man They Scear Me To But Dang It Man
Stay Safe Safe Safe
By Ken04 Thompson
The app has been changed so that it will not use your current location for the forecast even when you are using the app unless you give them access to your location at all times. Obviously they want this for some undisclosed reason since they can grab your location when you use the app. Deleting app now
Was great...now just ok 3/5
It started out great and loaded on my iPhone fast.. since you changed and the updates, it is so slow,, I liked your app cause it was 100% free, still free but just so slow!!
Fix location 1/5
The update doesn't allow to use current location only when app is open. Hopefully this is a mistake and will be fixed so I can re-install.
This has become my go to app for weather info. The radar is good, and the notifications are actually nice to have turned on. Haven't had any technical issues with it either. Great!
Big add upon opening sad. So long FOX 5 APP.
Fox 5 ads 1/5
Deleting now due to the full page dealer ad. You ruined an excellent app.
Great App... When it works 😒 1/5
Every time I use it it says "Network Error"
Even when I have perfect 4G service!
What if there we a tornado
Well I wouldn't know cause my weather app don't work!
It's a shame 1/5
Too bad about this app, because I watch them locally all the time on TV.
But the fact that they don't offer an ad free paid version is bad enough, now there are full page ads that you can't even X out of.
Had to delete. Shame, because I think they are the best meteorologists in town.
Thank you! 4/5
App is wonderful, but would be beneficial to add a humidity spot in the daily forecast along with dew point, barometric pressure
What happened to the alerts? 2/5
A severe storm just passed through, but I didn't receive any alerts. Went to the menu to check, and the alerts is gone! This WAS the best weather app ever until that disappeared in the latest update.
Big Mistake 1/5
Why change a great app that works, is easy to read, and intuitive, into something that is difficult to read, use, and is cranky. Did someone get moved up to a new position and is trying to establish him/herself by changing everything? There are too many other weather apps out here that work almost as good as your old one for me to try to make this new one work.
Terrible app since update! 1/5
This had always been my go to app for the weather. Was easy to use. Never crashed. I tried it for several days so it wasn't a matter of getting used to something different. It crashes and it's not intuitive. Horrible move on app teams part. Put it back the way it was!
HATE THIS NEW APP 1/5
I used the original app several times each day for several years as my primary weather app. The layout was very well.
Your new app is not good, confusing and terrible washed out color scheme. I especially hate the bright and large intrusive banners. Better change the app quick before you loose more users.
I now prefer using the "Weather Bug" app!!! Sorry Fox 5!!!
Update stinks 1/5
Loved the old app it was very user friendly and everything you needed was on the opening screen. Not sure why they decided to make something easy so complicated
Terrible app 1/5
I'm computer savvy and this app is a pain in the butt. Too busy. Too complicated. Keep it simple stupid.
David has a lot on his plate give him time to fix this!
The new upgrade stinks! You took one of my favorite apps for weather and ruined it. Thanks for nothing!!!
Hate this new update 1/5
I hate this update! So hard to read and move through. Please make it more like it was!!! :(
New update is terrible 1/5
The app use to be easy to use and very informative. I have used it for years. It is horrible now. I am sadly uninstalling it.
I used this app every day but the update made it difficult to use. I am un-installing this app. So disappointed!!!!!!!!!!!
11 Alive app here I come!!!
Why the change? You took a colorful, easy to navigate app and changed it to a boring, difficult to navigate, very hard on the eyes app that I no longer want to use as my go to weather app. Not good.
New version awful 2/5
By A Yellowstone reader
Insists I tell where I am - hate that - hourly screen too hard to read - very disappointing. Ads at top of screen distracting. Will stop using.
Love the FOX 5 Storm Team 5/5
The updated app is great. Thanks to David Chandley and the rest of the FOX 5 Storm Team for all of the updates.
Does what it claims 5/5
So far I have not seen any problems. Lay out is pretty straight forward and easy to use.
Better than weather channel 5/5
This app gave better storm info for Atlanta than weather channel app.
