Love almost everything about this weather app 4/5
The features seem to work much better on my iPhone 11 Pro, but for some reason I can’t seem to edit/remove a previously entered location. In the previous iteration, it was very easy to edit/remove unwanted location. Lots of good; and perhaps at least one opportunity.
So transparent! 1/5
This app is bad. I can’t even read my weather forecast because everything in the app is on an annoying rotating tile and the tiles are transparent! It’s hard to navigate. So bad. So so bad.
Use to love this 1/5
By Lacey Wilc0x
This was my go to for weather, now the only thing that ever loads are the stupid Honda envy ad, NO ONE ENVYS A HONDA! I also loathe when I have to watch the same add twice to see the weather report that didn’t report what the headline said it would!
Used to like this app 1/5
Don’t know what you’ve done, but a change happened that darkened everything. Also, it used to state earthquake location and now doesn’t. App never showed recent big earthquakes in California. Not a fan anymore.
I used to love this app 2/5
What’s up with the super annoying pop up ads? Every time I launch the app now (as of June 2019) I get a pop up add, have to close it, then can use the menu/click on weather info. This is especially frustrating when there is bad weather and I have to close an ad first.
Did I mention the “x” close feature doesn’t always work and I end up being transferred to the ad’s website? Needless to say, I’ve deleted this app. Maybe I’ll try it again in a few months.
Easier to check the website 1/5
I just downloaded, and will be deleting it, today.
The notifications come in, you click them, opens the app and no maps! Hit play, blank screen.
No point in having another app that tells me the temp - the native phone app can do that.
Volume setting for voice announcements 2/5
Is it just me not finding the setting or can you not adjust the volume on the voice alerts? Drives me nuts because no matter what volume I have the phone and everything else set to...the darn voice announcements are always full volume.
Not a fan 2/5
Don’t like the new updates with the satellite views. They are hard to view - all three. Also the earthquakes don’t give location after this latest update. Add that back! The past/future radar is a good improvement. Don’t fix what isn’t broken!
Gone downhill 2/5
I used to love this app! But the new map is terrible...please bring the old one back!
This WAS my favorite app... 1/5
Love/hate has progressed to just hate with the new edition of (approx.) May 2019. The annoyance of the app not respecting the portrait/landscape current position (which it did at one time) just required a restart of the app. But the “new, improved” radar page is abominable, and will force me to move on. Where the prior iteration radar page showed clickable watch/warning areas only when the animation was stopped, this version shows non-clickable areas all the time, totally obscuring the radar data beneath them. Surely Jim Spencer had no say in that, since it renders the radar data useless. The underlying map data is ugly compared to before... and if you click on an alert for your area, it brings you to a radar view of the roof of your HOUSE... decidedly less useful than the neighborhood view of before, so you’ll be “pinching” the screen over and over to get a useable view. This is the equivalent of switching from Google Earth to Apple Maps in the early days.
The map view now isn’t great 4/5
By Dallas Stars 9
Latest update now has the map so cluttered with watch/warning boxes that you can’t see the bands of precipitation. But overall, it’s still the only weather app I use for living in central Texas.
Mapbox Telemetry 3/5
Mapbox Telemetry is turned on by default. Click blue info icon to opt out. Telemetry contains personal information, and app should have been transparent about its use prior to enabling. I guess modern apps these days would rather ask for forgiveness than permission.
Crashes and stalled loading were bad enough.
Now suddenly the opacity for watches and warnings is so dark I can’t even see the actual radar in counties with an active watch.
App only works 1 in 10 times opened 1/5
This app has never worked properly since its initial download. I have the iPhone 10 and all software updates on both my phone and the app. Every time I get a notification I try to open it and it’s either a black screen or it’s the KXAN Weather background screen and never loads to the notification or weather map. I’ll stick with my Storm Radar App, never had an issue.
Kudos to tonight’s weather man. He is one of the few left that recognizes that there is only ONE wind and not winds. Keep up the good work.
Excellent but could use one minor tweak. Please make it go automatically to horizontal when the user device, in my case an Ipad, is set to horizontal on a flat surface. This would be a 5 star rating if this was fixed.
It now deserves ZERO stars 1/5
I’m 2 seconds away from uninstalling because this app is now overrun with ads and click bait. Not to mention the app now alerts repeatedly for the same things. This app used to be helpful now it’s nothing more than frustrating garbage.
Where did the videos go? 1/5
By Papi Chulo n Huki
Many of us rely on the forecast videos as we cant always catch the news on tv. Ive reported missing videos so many times Ive lost track. Do you actually read your reviews??? Stop promoting your app until you can consistently provide a good product. You have lost a user and a viewer.
Alerted me 30 times for the same thing
Radar Loop 2/5
By Bored Retiree
What did you do with the radar loop? A fixed radar shot is useless. I can look out my window to see that. The loop allows you to see the direction and speed of rain or storms. ☹️
Best local weather app 5/5
By Jim juke
Use it every day
Never works right on iPad 2/5
I now use Wonderground
Mostly inaccurate 1/5
I see lightning & hear thunder...the app says “0% chance of rain.” Really? The radar is totally off, too. Past and present. When it’s raining, it still shows nothing. I don’t trust it at all.
By brooooo 😱😱😱
i’ve used this for years and i love it
Too many Alerts 1/5
By ATX Rez
Used to be a great app. Now you get alerts for sunny days, oak pollen decreasing, etc. Defeats the purpose of having a weather app that alerts you to extreme and dangerous weather.
Radar NEVER plays 1/5
By Cookie player
The radar portion is useless, the second I ask it to play I ALWAYS get a blank screen-don’t offer this as an option if you can’t make it work!!!
My most-used app! 5/5
By PWR SHOPR
Very helpful app! I launch it multiple times per day. I like to engage in outdoor activities and the app helps me make plan, by the hour.
No Ads please 1/5
This use to be a great ad free app. Now anything you click on to view you get an ad.
All in one place! 4/5
Love this app!& It has current & future weather reports as well as radar. I like the up-to-the-minute video option. I would give 5* if no ads. Would be great To have the allergy report tucked into it somehow.
Jim Spencer would be pleased. 5/5
I applaud the app developers, Jim Spencer would be pleased how you have provided an update to this app for us central Texans. The maps are back to moving! The radar maps are no longer useless! People will now live because they can see the tornado is heading towards them. People will LIVE because they know the flood is headed towards them! The developers of this app clearly are True Central Texans where the weather is EXCITING and animated weather maps are the norm. Thank you for helping us Mr. Tolbert and God bless Jim Spencer!
Radar is fixed 5/5
Thank you for enabling the streaming radar to work. My favorite weather app is back!
Why update? 3/5
By foxy momma 78
Did your update and now radar has no play button. App was fine before.
Radar not Streaming 1/5
By Travis McKay
During storms we had recently (yesterday), I couldn’t track where they were heading. It was a still
radar pic. Please fix. This was my “go-to” app for all things weather, and the live look radar was the main reason.
Radar no longer plays 2/5
I hope this is just a bug. The radar for tracking storm paths no longer has the play button and it just shows the last snapshot. Please bring back the map in motion feature.
No more play mode?! 2/5
This use to be my go to weather app for the forecast Doppler radar... in PLAY mode!! Now the play button is gone and I am sad. Very very sad.
Use to live this radar!! Used it from work all the time but since the update 2 days ago, it no longer has the option to put radar in motion for future!! Will have to look for another app!! So disappointed!!
Not sure what happened 2/5
Used to be my go to app. Then the videos started popping up and now no stop or start selection on the radar map. Plus I can not seem to have the location I want set as home. The ads are a Distraction. What was a good app is now a deleted one.
Missing feature 3/5
The radar in motion feature is now missing. There is no PLAY button on the bottom.
Update is Lacking Play Button 1/5
By Without Radar
The February 17th update does not even have a play button for the radar map on iphonex. This basically makes the radar portion of the app useless.
Not so good 2/5
By WB in Texas
In areas outside Austin - like Bastrop, La Grange, Lockhart and others, the KXAN forecast is the same as the Austin forecast and this is NOT appropriate for these outlying areas. The app used to show different forecasts by the individual areas - but not so recently (1/18). If you want a better weather app, try WeatherBug.
Used to love this app-until now 1/5
Lately, I have been getting pop up ads that cover the entire page! Even when I click to close one, the same ad pops up again. Just now I tried to read a special weather statement and never got through. At least seven different ads popped up in one minute!! Fix this KXAN, please!
Best weather app 5/5
Best one I have found for weather. Like the alerts, weekly, daily and weather videos! It makes it super easy to add other cities where my family live.
Ads, crash, more ads 1/5
Love the ads and how I cannot actually look at the weather on the first time I open the app. Open it, freezes, close it, open it again, ads. Close it and go to The Weather Channel.
New update leaves you stuck with Vertical viewing 2/5
Since the latest update App is now locked in Portrait Mode. Inconvenient and awkward when using an iPad for sure. Why would you do this in an update without warning users?
Great weather app 5/5
By Jeffrey H.
Great weather app. I like that I can get the video forecast wherever I am. Live radar is very useful and accurate.
The only thing I like is the map 2/5
Please improve the background! You can't read the white letters with a "weather" background...
Also, remove your adds! Super annoying!
Negative 1 star is more like it 1/5
I would be more than happy to pay money for a decent weather app. I have at least 20$ invested in weather radar pro. KXAN app is buggy and stops short of malware...for NOW. Adverts go way beyond annoying to near infuriating. Theres nothing worse than having video ads co-opting your ap when you're trying to see if there is a tornado about to wipe you out. Wake up KXAN.
Just FYI. The free weather radar pro pulls all the local TV weather radars together plus noaa/faa/nhc/usgc warnings and updates. Free version contains minimal ads, 1000x less than KXAN ap, and at least gives you options to remove via nominal purchase. I have licensed the aviation weather layers which are perfect for pilots. All notams and faa conditions etc.. This is not an ad for WRP but I've been soooo frustrated with weather aps especially kxan.
I'm out of here! 1/5
Too many ads.
Used to be so helpful now all ads 1/5
Horrible change. Pretty much ready to axe it.
