Getting worse 1/5
Too many pop up ads, too many BIG ads, too little maps and useful info. Used to be able see much more useful info and radar maps useful for camping, fishing etc. Now the useful info is in very small boxes and only loads after all the big screen ads pop up. It’s a waste of my time to use it anymore.
Absolutely horrible to use 1/5
By Dramatic 1
Sluggish, hard to navigate past the ads. Used to be easy to edit cities. Total junk app now.
I used to love this app 1/5
The latest upgrade has made this app painful to use. Rather than a weather app with some unobtrusive ads for support, it now feels like an ad app with the possibility of finding weather information...somewhere...maybe. Time to find another app and delete this one.
Doesn’t work since the last update. 1/5
By Life in AK
Totally useless since the update. It always give an error that it isn’t connected to WiFi or data, when it is. It won’t load. I’ve deleted and reloaded the app several times but nothing works. It sure would be nice if KTUU would fix this app. It was my favorite weather app before. Now I will search for a new one and totally ditch this app.
Developer went backwards! 1/5
The older version was my go-to weather app no matter where I went. This one gives less information and the ads are intrusive. I’ll be looking for a new weather app. PLEASE replicate the old one and replace this one!
Doesn't load fast enough 1/5
With the update this app has gone way downhill. I don't like how long it takes to load or the streaming video. The widgets also take a lot of time to load. Will be going back to accuweather
Slow to load 1/5
This new up-date as like most up-dates have caused it to slow down and now it’s dependent on streaming ads. This app is horrible now. When I'm on the trails and want to check weather most time it wont. It requires a fast internet. why did you change it?
Too slow... 1/5
The new app is lovely but it takes so long to load it is just about useless.

Don’t make the mistake of updating. Totally unusable now due to ads and video.
By Debbie M Seymour
This apt used to be useful but the “[email protected]
is awful. Add block useful information, now you have to go to separate pages just to. Kee the map and current temp. Wish I could “un upgrade”! Very unhappy with this version. I used to recommend this apt no more, I’ll be looking for a different one to use.
Latest update ruined app 2/5
It’s slow to load, always changes my default location, sometimes it doesn’t load at all and I have to shut the app down completely and then reopen it. All the pop up ads are interfering with overall viewing and loading.
It was so much better before.
New update 1/5
New update ruined a decent app. Now ads galore. More difficult to navigate between all the pages
Last update 1/5
Way too many ads and no way to get rid of them.
Latest update has usability degradation 1/5
By Exit on true
The map with the current temp was the most useful part of the old app. Now a splash page with auto streaming (data down the drain) content to get the current temp and a separate option to get the map without it. Some advice - Don’t force streaming. Put the current temp on the map that shows the weather, and put it back on top as the first thing viewable. Too many levels to get to what we want to see, and added sluggishness to boot is not a good direction.
New update freezes 1/5
Running on iPhone 8. Update freezes at opening screen and show no weather. Cannot open hourly, daily, menu-anything. So, at present useless. Update soon, because I normally love this app and use it several times a week.
Big ads-boo! 2/5
2/15/18 Nice new interface, looks slick & professional, but there’s a ridiculous amount of space devoted to ads so the focus is no longer on the weather. Deleting app.
Too Many Ads! 1/5
A long time user of this app, I just installed the latest update for iOS on 02.24.18 and was extremely disappointed. There are more ads than weather content in this new version. You should incorporate user testing outside of the company because I’m certain anyone else would be quick to point out you’ve implemented a very poor and fragmented way to display your content. Minimize the ads and make this app useful again.
Slow to start 3/5
Recent changes have made this app very slow to start and now opens sideways. Sometimes sticks on home temps and won’t change for other locations. Grrrrr!
App needs to be updated to run on an iPad with new iOS
Mostly good -alerts need work 3/5
Generally this app works well. Gives a variety of info including weather radar. The weak point is the alerts. Half the time they are not location identified and often end up being for some other part of this huge state. Each alert should tell where it is applicable. Otherwise it's not very helpful. 3-2015: weather alerts still often don't give location. Alaska's big and weather great varies!
App crash 1/5
Doesn't work with iOS 8. Someone needs to step up their game. Crashes everytime
Does not work 1/5
This app no longer works for me since ios8. Crashes back to the desktop every time. Pretty useless at this point
Go ahead and download 5/5
This is my go to weather app. I always use it and it's always spot on for se weather. :D 907!!
Like the app with exception when I say use my current location it shows me in Cold Foot AK when I really was in Fairbanks, when I say my location it shows me in Anchorage AK. When I'm in North Pole it shows Coldfoot as my current location. This app needs a fix.
AK Resident 1/5
By AK Raymo
This App is garbage! It's hardly ever right and is never the same as the KTUU televised weather forecast. it's been raining cats and dogs all night and the App shows clear and 0 percent chance of rain at any time in the previous or future forecast! Junk, don't waste your time you would be better off using the 844 time and temp number!
I use to love this app 1/5
Ever since the recent update, it refuses to open and just crashes. So disappointed :(
Hands down the best 5/5
I've tried other weather apps for my iPhone 5, but none of the radar/satellite animations work, no matter how I tinker with settings. The KTUU app is very feature rich and accesses a ton of weather data, and even earthquake info, all with fast-loading weather animations. The navigation is intuitive, even though the buttons are a little small. I would pay for an ad-free version and I rarely pay for apps.
Thank you 5/5
By Bethany AK
I am so grateful to have my local weather app back in full force!!
Ktuu weather 5/5
Excellent! Love this app!
Just ok 2/5
Wish it would show a better view of the weather map. Too complicated to hassle with.
Great except... 3/5
This is a great app except for the warnings. If I am looking at Anchorage or Mat-Su weather, I really don't need to know the warning/watches for Fairbanks, Copper River, Delta Junction, etc. Make the warnings more area specific.
Great but needs the "feels like" temperature 5/5
By poodie oodie
This app is great, I use it to figure out how many layers to wear. But it would be wonderful if there was a "feels like" temperature also. As you know, 30 degrees doesn't always feel like 30 degrees because of the wind.
Love it! 5/5
I love this app; however, it would be great if there was a paid version without the advertisements and if it included the windchill. Thanks!
Love it! 5/5
Full screen map 5/5
I like the full screen map mode by turning the iPhone 90 degrees to 'landscape'.
Great app! 5/5
I use this often! Thanks!
Very Handy and Advanced 5/5
I couldn't be happier with this app. How convenient to finally get accurate weather updates for Alaska via an iPhone app. Thanks, KTUU for keeping Alaskans up to date and evolving with technology!
KTUU channel two! 5/5
I love the earth quake app! Didn't know of one this morning tell I checked! Keeps me up to date ! Love it
Like It, but What's the Wind Chill? 5/5
By Zucchero Fan
Reporting the wind chill would be a great & helpful addition. Please add it Otherwise great app, easy to use, etc.
Pretty but useless. 1/5
Today 14Feb11 the outlook said sunny & clear with 0% precipitation. We actually got 2 inches of snow & the sun only came out for an hour or so. The temp was way off, as it usually is. Published as 3 to -2, the actual high was 17. Try watching the weather channel, then publish your outlook.
I admit, the map is pretty but that doesn't makeup for constant and large discrepancies.
Great APP 5/5
this is a grate app because its accurate and up to date.
Now if we could get the tides added.......
Better Weather App 5/5
This app is the best weather app I have used, so far. After accuweather went south, I really needed a good weather app and this one is it! The Alaska forecast is important to us locals- we depend upon it. Thank you! You have a winner here- don't mess it up! I don't know how it works elsewhere, but for Alaska this is THE ONE!!
Nice features but always wrong. 1/5
This app has great features however the temperatures and wind speed are always wrong. It is 11 degrees outside right now and the app says 36 WTH?!
Great Weather Ap! 5/5
By Ms Snick
This is my new fave weather Ap, especially since accu-weather changed. I too would like to see it easier (larger button) for changing locations. @Tampa, change your phone setting to allow current location.
Love the 10-day feature, all 10 days, all at once. Great!
Cool but... 4/5
This app is pretty cool but a little off of the time zone. How do I freaking change the zone to Tampa Florida
From Kodiak~~~~Great App!!! 5/5
So far the best!
Great job on this app! Works great with lots of detail available. I only would like to see a slightly larger tab for changing locations. Maybe I'm just fat fingering it
Awesome App 5/5
Good job KTUU! I have 4 other weather apps and this is my new favorite. Love the map (w/earthquake info) and the 10 day with daily details when you touch the individual days. Only thing it's missing, as with all the others is precip past 24hrs info.
Great survival tool 5/5
By Mathew Bobalatty
Life in Alaska can be all about surviving. This weather app is a fantastic way to be prepared for Mother Nature's worst. Good, trustworthy tools are vital in a survival situation. As someone who is new to Alaska, this app is my new best friend.
