So slow to load 2/5
You can get temp and radar from 3 other apps by the time this on loads!
By what we watch
This update is a complete fail. Kind of like the power of 3. Have to put in 2 stars or it won’t accept the review.
So slow 2/5
Glad I’m not the only one that thinks so. I have used used Ky3 app for years, but whatever you did to the last few updates was a bad move. Takes forever for the app to load. Alex has taken your job.
Bye bye KY3 weather app 1/5
Have had ky3 weather app on iPad since first iPad, due to last update and changes I will delete app. It just isn’t user friendly
One more let down from KY3 1/5
Why on Earth would I want to open a weather app and see what the temperature is or today’s high will be without scrolling half a page down? This is yet another let down from what used to be there premier news source in our area, but is now a live broadcast of a high school AV club meeting. Thanks Gray Television, your inattention to quality wins the day again.
Horrible update 1/5
I used this app daily until the last update. No longer use. Please fix!
Has Gotten Better 3/5
By MO App Reviewer
I saw that the app updated yesterday (04/05/18) so I updated it and then reinstalled it. Seems to be working better now. When I can say for certain that it’s consistent, I’ll update my review.
By Oil drip
Takes it for ever to load. I usually close and go to a different weather app. Also don’t like to be able to in large map to full screen. Never as completely loaded so can’t rate rest of app.
EDIT— 4-4-18. Thought I give it another try and see if any improvements. Wrong, still won’t load or takes forever. I have no problems with other apps loading. Been using accuweather so I check back to see if any‘ better ‘Oildrip’
Not fond of homesceeen 2/5
Just not as easy to use as previous updates. App image in iTunes shows current conditions - go back to that please!
Update works! 5/5
This last update fixed the slow loading of pages, as well as telling me there was an error on load every time. Thanks! :)
Update takes this app backwards 1/5
I’ve had this app for several years, however, this update is terrible. The app is slow to load. I miss the larger opening map and I hate having to scroll by the video to read the information I need. Additionally, the video sometimes starts playing automatically and I don’t need this when I’m trying to save data. Please consider going back to the old look and function.
Bad design 1/5
I used this app frequently for years, but UX is awful now and I rarely open it.
Takes forever to load. 1/5
Used to be a good app. Now takes so long to load I often give up. Don’t like how to get around in the update either. Will look for something better.
Loads slow 1/5
By Bon Mots
Slow to load forecast, by the time the ad plays on top of that I’ve already lost interest and moved on. Too bad, I wish it worked better.
Horrible Update 1/5
The App Never loads I’ve tried deleting and reinstalling and everything. I even thought it was my phone at first.
Was nothing wrong with the old one
The layout was perfect had no problems with it Before🙁 so when you need a weather app for storms like tornadoes what so are you gonna use “NOT KY3 Weather”
Please Fix Future Cast 2/5
By Mucel mjk
I use this app all the time! Not sure what happened but the future cast is no longer working. I hope you fix this matter as I use it all the time to foresee the weather.
Use to be a better app 1/5
I have used this app for years but the past three weeks when I open the app it takes a few minutes to load. I tried deleting it and reinstalling it and lots of other fixes and none of them worked. Then I came back to the App Store to see many are having problems since the “bugs” were fixed. Hope they are able to get them fixed so I can update my review. I will use the national weather service until then.
Bad update 1/5
By Kayak dud
Was a good app, now it doesn’t open a lot of the time. Can we have the old version back?
Terrible update 1/5
Don’t like the new update. It takes forever to load.
Even worse than before 1/5
Used to be when you opened the app. The current temp and conditions were right there with the map. Now you have to scroll through a ton of weather stories you couldn’t care less about to find the current temp and you have to go looking for the radar map. Neither are readily available when you open the app >:-(
Terrible update 1/5
EDIT #2: Well, with the latest update, not only does the forecast video open “maximized,” but it starts playing on its own. That’s it for me — I surrender. Deleted.
EDIT: I’ve added back one star for slight improvements (the app now opens with the video forecasts minimized, which helps it open a bit quicker), but of late I’ve noticed that the”Current Conditions” slide has white text on a photo that frequently has a background with white elements, making it hard to read. For that, I’ve deducted one star.
ORIGINAL POST: The new update is horrible! This app used to open straight to the weather map and other essential info, all on one screen — now it takes forever to open, and opens to a video forecast screen that requires you to jump around to find info that used to be available at a single glance, all in one location. Nor can you change the radar view to “full screen” anymore, and fully half of what screen is available is dedicated to ads. I know it’s free and the KY3 storm team is the best, but I wish I could undo the latest update — it’s quite a downgrade.
Latest update slow to load 2/5
Since update to Version 4.6.600 the app is extremely slow to load.
Bad update 1/5
This update might have seemed like a good idea with more info available however the downsides far exceed the benefits. Takes a long time to load and/or update. More information than I really wanted or needed.
New update 1/5
The new update is so bad that I am going to find a different place to get my weather.
iPhone X 2/5
Please update app for iPhone X! 😊
Still No iPhone X Support 2/5
Would have expected the latest update to include support for the iPhone X.
You lost me at “too slow” 2/5
I like the new look of the app, but it takes forever to load now. I don’t have the time or patience for it. I’ve switched to a different app instead.
The new app is very clunky & lacks appearance & appeal of the former version.
New update is terrible 1/5
Afraid you “fixed” something that wasn’t broken. We shouldn’t have to scroll past a video and an ad or two to get the current temp and radar. Previous version had a couple flaws but it worked well. This is a downgrade, for sure. Also, can you please do something about the alert sounds? Ron’s voice out of nowhere or an equally startling siren, or little blips you barely hear are not great choices, in my opinion.
Ky3 weather 5/5
By Dylan McLean
Can you make it say temperature instead of saying now please? Can you make everything small please
Location services needs to be fixed 1/5
There has always been three choices for location services always, while using the app, and never. I've always kept my on "while using the app" to conserve battery. The last update treats while using the app the same as never and it needs to be fixed asap
Location Services 1/5
By Bad after update
Location Access "Always" is the only option if using weather in Current Location. Past versions did not require this. KY3 does not need to know where my phone is at all times. Please allow "While Using" to be an option again.
Used to work 3/5
I loved this app for a long time but lately it won't ever load any information.
Too many ads 1/5
This app has been rendered useless due to the insane amount of ads. You can barely discern where the actual weather content is. App deleted.
This is a really great app, and I know a lot more about the weather than I used to, but lately I have not been able to see the weather in motion
Not visually pleasing 2/5
The weather section on the KY3 News App is superior to their stand alone weather app which is hideous. Please change it and maybe I'll download it again. I keep checking in the App Store to see if it's been updated, but no! Different developer?
Thank you 5/5
I wanted to take a moment to express my gratitude to the entire KY3 team for working hard to keep people informed when severe weather is on the rise. The app is easy to use, keeps me updated minute by minute and the video blurbs help me to feel like y'all are right there with me. Thank you for helping me keep my family safe!
best weather 5/5
this is great for forcast and checking the weather
I loved this app before the update 2/5
I wish it'd go back to showing the 7 day forecast with the pictures (simple) like it shows on the news. This is just too small and smashed together and dark for me. And I'm 28 with perfect eyesight. I wish I never updated it!
Settings won't work 3/5
By Lightning warnings??
App works okay except the lightning warnings won't turn off. I have went under settings and disabled them and they still wake me up all night over and over! Please wake me for a tornado but not lightning!
Ron Hurst get out of my room!!! 4/5
So I have no complaints with the app. It works great it's. Great for knowing what the weather is like in my area. But, when there is a thunderstorm going on and it's three in the morning I don't want to wake up to the sound of Ron Hurst saying "Lightning has been detected in your area." I understand that you want me to know when there is lightning nearby but like I mentioned, I don't want to be waken up to the sound of a meteorologist at 3:00 am.
Rarely works 1/5
Get Weather lab app
Radar doesn't work 2/5
I want to give this app 5*. I want KY3 to be my go to weather app. Alas I can't and won't since it doesn't work. Kinda pointless with no radar.
Works at times 3/5
I love the live warnings the app gives you (i.e. Lightening detected near you). In the beginning the app worked perfect but now the radar never works. It's been that way for a few months now. That's why the low rating. But besides that the app is great and accurate.
Great Weather App 5/5
This is a great weather app. Has everything you want, but not too much.
Bad weather 1/5
By Un happy happy
Poor. Radar and image are not worth looking at. Sends me notifications I that lighting was detected 4 miles from my house when there is no thunder or lighting present.
The app is buggy 2/5
By Evil Outrage
Everything else using data on my phone works but on the KY3 app, it sometimes says no connection even with 3 or more bars and 3G. When I hit play on the interactive radar map, all the snow and everything disappears.
Hourly precipitation gone 2/5
By Hourly watcher
Why was the % precipitation removed from the hour by hour screen? This was very helpful to let us know at what time precipitation was expected to start. Please bring it back.
Great app for local weather 5/5
By Xx YOiZ xX
Works great and accurate for your location 👍
A huge step backwards :( 2/5
The previous version of this app was far superior. This newly redesigned app has tiny bland icons on a vertical forecast layout....while the previous version had colorful easily readable graphics in a nice horizontal 10 day(2x5) rectangular display. Please PLEASE bring that back. I REALLY miss it! KY3 weather was always my go to app for local weather info and I'd use it all day everyday, but now I've been forced to abandon it in favor of the (previously) inferior Weather Channel app. If I'd known how badly they ruined this app I'd never have upgraded it. Please listen to these comments and fix this. I miss the previous version!
