Bring back the KY3 radar 1/5
By Mighty Eggplant
This app use to be perfect. Never had an issue with it and use it 100% as the only weather app on my phone. Since they changed the radar from the actual local radar my radar will not load. At all. WiFi or not. Will not load. Then I came to realize that when they “changed” the radar it’s the Weather Channel radar. Bring it back local. The app has ads out the wazoo, bring back the radar that actually works.
It’s ok but... 3/5
Not to drag KY3 down all the way... it is a cool app. I like the customization and the interactive radar is great. I haven’t gotten an error pop up in a while. That’s been nice.
I get that this is a template and KY3 doesn’t have all the control but recently my new problem is the app doesn’t load completely and I have to close it and re open it OR most annoying, random audio starts playing from an ad or weather video AS SOON AS I open the app. It has been embarrassing because it’s usually at a higher volume when it happens. Please fix if you can. The only problem I have with the video ads is when an ad is longer than the weather update video I was going to watch. It does seem like the video ads are just to rake in more commercial money on top of the ad banners on every page.
All in all there is room for improvement but we have seen some improvement. So thank you.
Gets slower and slower radar never seems to work
By The Fish Head
Not as good as it was! Too long to load and graphics on radar not as good
TOO MANY PUSH NOTIFICATIONS ALLLLLL THE TIME 3/5
I like the app for radar and warnings but you send WAY TOO MANY PUSH NOTIFICATIONS ALL THE TIME. I just got 3 alerts for pollen/weekend weather/etc in the past 10 minutes. Hate the constant push notifications almost enough to delete your app.
Developer support pages no longer exist 2/5
Where are all these users supposed to go with their issues? “App support” link here in the App Store takes users to a page on KY3s website that no longer exists. Isn’t this against the terms of service???
Also - WAYYYY too many notifications. I want to be notified when there are watches and warnings for my area, not the mold count or the lake levels. I get as many as three an hour sometimes when there is no severe weather in the area.
Finally - new radar colors are not useful. Red is no longer a tornado warning? Why the change?
What is this? 2/5
I used to use this app all the time. Then it kinda slowed down on loading. During recent severe weather, it didn’t want to load at all. I haven’t had WiFi since I moved a month prior to this weather. So I uninstalled it and downloaded it again. Now it doesn’t help AT ALL to predict future forecast on the radar like the previous version I had. It used to show me future cells that might pop up which is detrimental to see how my job is going to go with cutting labor etc. it now just has a past, past + future, and future option. Anything that has future on it is absolutely useless. I have to check the past weather cells just to predict MYSELF if it’s going to screw me over and rain. The “hourly” option will say 40-60% chance but the future prediction on radar always gave me a rough idea if the cell traveling from the west was going to actually hit or not. I’m disappointed. I always liked the KY3 app because it’s local and felt more accurate than the weather channel but now I don’t know what to do or use.

I hate the new update! Fix it!!
New update 3/5
Hate the new update. Especially the color of warnings and watches shown on the radar. I've always known red to mean tornado watch/warning now red is severe storms instead of yellow? Please undo it and give me back the radar I'm use to and stop changing stuff it was fine the way it was!
Update awful 1/5
The new update on the map is awful! It’s hard to see anything! The three so called choices are no better! Bring back the old map layout!
I used to love this app. I don’t know what happened, but it’s awful now. It never announces severe weather alerts even though that is turned on, but station alerts announce every time and I have that turned off! Fix this!!
Fail for me 1/5
The videos throw errors- which makes worthless when you are trying to stay safe from dangerous weather. Alerts do not function properly either. Have tried all updates etc and it still does not work
App worthless 1/5
In the last six months I have had to delete and reinstall constantly in order to get the weather! I watch KY3 all the time and like the personnel! I know it’s not my phone, I have no problems with other apps and it’s not in airplane mode or my internet connection!
Please fix it so it works correctly again!
Add a drop in pin on the map 3/5
App has issues loading sometimes.
I wish the ability to drop a pin on the map for where my house.
Never seems to work 1/5
9 times out of 10 there is a “network error” when I get on this app resulting in most of the information and screens being blank
It is right now storming in my area. I need radar. But for the life of me I can’t get this thing to load. It’s absolutely useless.
Great App 5/5
Highly recommend. Very accurate and a great tool to have when the weather turns bad.
App doesn’t load very well now. Failure to connect to network comes up all the time.
I have no problem with any crashes, just the content. It provides no useful forecasts, and trying to see how much snow that we are supposed to get? Forget it. The slides have no useful information.
Ad ridden junk 1/5
Way too much advertising, takes too long to get to a forecast, and I don’t want to watch a video forecast every time even if I do wait for the 30 second video- boo Ky3!!
Needs updates 4/5
Video clips are not playing
Too many video ads 3/5
By Sk8er babe
Get rid of the cheap video ads that are over 35 seconds long. It takes to long to be able to a watch weather update.
Video error. Video error. Video error. 1/5
When I get a notification about a weather update, I try to play it. 99.9% of the time it takes a long time to start and i get the “Video error” and “cannot play requested video”. Terrible.
What’s the point? It’s just perpetual frustration. No improvements.
What happened to this app? 1/5
I used this app 3-5 times a day to check my local weather and radar. Ever since the last update it takes forever to load and gets stuck on the “KY3 stormteam” landing page. About 75% of the time I get an error message that the network failed to connect even when I have full service or even on my own home WiFi. Whatever the developers did to this app they ruined it! I can’t use it anymore. Put it back like it was so it will at least work!! I see I am not the only person having this problem! Fix it please!
Ok app, but... 2/5
By Captain Ritter
It’s an ok app, but the thing that frustrates me the most is the fact that the hourly forecast (projected lows and highs) never matches the daily forecast. It’s like they are prepared by two different people who don’t talk to each other. So any time I check the hourly and daily forecast, I don’t believe either one and figure the truth is somewhere in the middle. Too bad, because otherwise it could be a decent app.
It’s ALWAYS Something since iOS 3! 1/5
Unlike others I’ve been spared crashes etc. but the designers have been INSANE.
Even since iOS 3 and pre ver 1 somebody has always had a hard-on for WHITE text on a WHITE background. Look at the preview in the App Store. Ultra thin and “stylish” white font for temp and tiny tiny tiny point face for wind, humidity, windchill etc. over a busy cloudy or similar background. UNREADABLE, but it is “STYLISH.”
The iPad version doesn’t even work. No matter your settings it loads in portrait view and all the current weather stats don’t even load at all. Again I’ve been spared the crashes etc. but the rest of the app is buggy as hell. HOW MANY YEARS have they been grinding on this app?
Yeah it’s a Free app BUT can I get the app designers job? Some fool is getting probably good coin to do this crappy work for the last 10+ years and he’s always mucking up. Sounds like an ok gig.
The new app is very clunky & lacks appearance & appeal of the former version.
Requires frequent mobile reboot to use
I use it all of the time 5/5
I don’t know why it is crashing for other people it might be my phone because I have an iPhone or maybe your connection but this is the only app I can get to load on one bar my go to app for weather always I don’t know if those where just old and they have fixed it but without this app I wouldn’t even know if a tornado was above my head
Fix for iOS 1/5
This was my go to app to check weather before starting jobs. Now won’t load won’t show anything on the radar. Always says check internet connection fix for iOS
Was good now bad 1/5
By Ghetto put
KY3 had always been great but not now. For quite some time l must reload as it constantly FAILS!!!
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.
Ky3 weather app What happened?? 1/5
Like many of the other reviewers I too have depended on this app especially during severe weather. But now it won’t load or the map won’t show what it’s supposed to or it just crashes. I delete and reinstall about once a week or more. I like having a local weather app. But I don’t think the developers or ky3 realize that I, and I’m sure many others, depend on this app during severe weather like knowing if there are tornado warnings in my area or other severe weather watches and warnings. I have deleted and reinstalled for the last time. I’ll just have to find something else.
This used to be my go-to app but no more 2/5
I don’t know what happened, I used to use this app daily. But it now takes forever to load, I get a “network failed to connect” notice frequently, etc. Thought maybe I just needed to reinstall the app but in reading the other reviews it seems like this isn’t an issue with just my phone. I can’t recommend it until they correct these issues. I have had to start using other weather apps that work consistently.
Was better! 1/5
By chippy chipperton
Not as user friendly. Used to be able to open the app and boom there was a map. Now, not so much. Short, but my opinion.
New update is almost useless. I am unable to look at information about issued warning. Cannot send feedback.
Too many alerts!!!! 1/5
I DO NOT need an alert saying "Very nice evening ahead". All the app does is annoy me. I tried turning most of their alerts off and that doesn't work. Good bye Ky3 weather app.
In a real emergency I’d probably be dead 1/5
All it warns me about is lightning when I click on “live video” I have to watch a 15 second add and then get played radar and coverage from 2 hours before. Sirens are going off right now and I haven’t been warned by my app or able to get a live feed.
Horrible speed loading radar 1/5
Horrible speed loading radar, don’t even try and put it in motion. Using excellent internet and iPhone X. Constantly like this, even deleted app and Re added it. Use The Weather Channel app, much better and much more accurate on their forecast
App will no longer even open.
By Poliver Scott
This app has progressively gotten worse with each update. My wife deleted the app months ago but I held out hope....to no avail. I'm sitting here watching the lighting from my back deck so I thought I'd open the app to check the radar...yeah right LOL! DELETED
The newest app is horrible. Doesn’t even give you the current temp. I’m done with this and going back to Weather Channel. Bring back the old version!
App Crashing 1/5
I use this app often and since the last update, it crashes when I open it. If I persist, it will open, but only in portrait. If I have the screen lock on in landscape, I have to turn it off. Then the app reorients. Loading anything on it, takes forever. It used to be quite snappy, but not more. Also the pop up notifications work, but if I click on them, it tries to open the app and crashes. Please see what you can do to sort this out. I am still using IOS version 10.3.3. Once this is fixed, I will revise my rating.
Not the best 2/5
On rare occasions the app is reliable; but most of the time it's too slow to give me accurate information and it only loads the ads. Even when I have great service
Weather app 1/5
I used this app for all my weather needs. Now it is very slow to open. I don’t like the new format. No reason to see everything on the screen. If you want to view different things it should be an option.
What happened?! 1/5
This app has been my go to for a long time! With the new update, I have to constantly delete and download the app again for it to work. When I tap the app to open it, it takes forever to load, if it does at all. It is stuck on the “KY3 storm team” start up page and will not load. After deleting and reinstalling, I’ve noticed the location services aren’t working well either, after allowing it to know my location, it will put me somewhere else. I have the X, so I know it’s not my software a full bars LTE, so it’s definitely this app. Stop making commercials for this until it’s useful again.
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.
