Again with the September 2018 update 1/5
By Free time Relaxing
November 5, 2018...Radar: Severe weather tonight...Since I cannot read any city names or cannot even tell where the Tennessee and Alabama border is, I am having to use another app. Also, I’m currently out of state and getting my alerts from another local Huntsville channel. I cannot even Live Stream WHNT because I keep getting an error message. However, I can and am live streaming another local Huntsville channel weather coverage. I’m wondering why I’m even bothering with WHNT’s app since they’ve changed it. It used to be the one source of information I relied on...not any more, especially with loved ones at home.
September 14, 2018...Radar: I discovered in order to be able to read the city and state names that are readable after selecting the Data preferences and the type of Overlays you want to see, you have to select the Standard map under Map Types. That map has almost dark gray lettering for the cities and states. If you select the Satellite or Hybrid maps, the cities and states lettering is in white which makes them unreadable after selecting the data preferences and Overlays.
September 10, 2018...Radar: No matter with what setting, overlay or satellite view, I cannot see names of cities or even state lines during Hurricane Michael. I could not before my previous review and still not now. This app was 100% better before this September 2018 update. I may find the alerts are good when the time arises (I have backups just in case it is not) but I must say the radar view stinks. There are colored solid areas and then there are colored outlined areas. I cannot figured out what the difference is and this is confusing. Please return to the old version or simplify this one. Having to explain this latest update on air should have told WHNT something about it not being user friendly. ☹️☹️☹️
Ruined this App 1/5
This app has been my go to app for weather in Huntsville for years. The recent “improvements “ absolutely ruined the functionality of this app. It is a disaster. Cannot trust this app to protect my family. Please restore the previous version of this app!!!
Radar review 1/5
New update has killed the radar view. Can’t see cities or state lines which means we can’t depend on this radar for critical information. Please return to the previous view!
New App is not an upgrade 2/5
The radar is hard to read. The forecast is a screen shot.
App Update 10/29/18 1/5
By SJ. Stump
I updated the app, and it’s terrible! I wish I had the older version! The 7-Day forecast doesn’t let you click and see information surrounding each individual day. You just get an image of the 7-Day. Please revert back to the older version!!
The old version was better 1/5
This app used to be very basic and easy to use. Especially the radar. It’s hard to see now, and I can’t figure out if it has a future/past setting anymore.. neither can I find the hourly forecast anymore. I wish I hadn’t have updated all my apps at once. What a shame
What happened, WHNT? 1/5
I’ve had this app for several years and trusted it! What happened? An update happened and now I cannot access anything with ease. Not cool! Go back!
Latest version is horrible. 1/5
This app used to be usefull. It now crashes constantly, and the interface is a cluttered mess. It is far and away the worst app desighn I have ever seen. It looks more like an popup ad than an application. Do not use this app.
Slightly Better 3/5
By Søme guy
This recent update sorted things out in a better way, but why does everything take me to safari to see the weather? This is an app, not a browser??? Anyways, looks better, much work to do however.
New and improved is awful 1/5
This new version is terrible. So much junk to go through just to see the weather details. It’s a complete waste of my time. Won’t use this version of the app. Please change it back.
Lost consumer 1/5
This app use to be my go to for weather because it was simple to use and fairly accurate. Since the update it’s become difficult to navigate and harder to understand. I now have to go to the trouble of finding a new weather app that is as reliable as this one use to be.
My suggestion to the dev team is to revert back to the previous version if it wants it’s customer base back.
The update 2/5
This new lay out is terrible. Go back the they circled apps within the app. Took me 5 mins to find the 7 day forecast.
Trouble with this app 1/5
By gee wheez
Got it to work for a day or so and now won’t open up at all very disappointed
Was a good app until the start of 2018. 2/5
This was a good app until the start of 2018. Since then, it has been very slow on both the iPhone 6 and then my iPhone 6s. Unfortunately, I’m going to have to switch to a different app that won’t freeze.
Not What I hoped For 3/5
I removed the previous version because it constantly froze. The first time I used the new one the back arrow in settings won’t respond. I want weather, not news and this is kind of cluttered on the main screen. I started using the Storm app.
Terrible update 1/5
By Crazy money these people want
The look is great if I only knew what to click on to see everything. Too many ads to navigate through. How about offering a paid app with no ads? As bad as I hate to I’m using another station’s until you fix it and make it user friendly.
Do not update!!! 1/5
By Maggie Denney
This app recently updated, before I would check the weather throughout the day, now I’m trying to figure out the basic. To me the updated version is more videos and live streaming. Which I don’t like. More ads, which news 19 app has more ads now too 🤔 I may be switching news and downloading another weather app that gets to the point!!
Mixed Feelings 3/5
Radar performance is improved but where did the storm tracks go? Bring it back please. I had to hunt for the 7-day forecast. Finally found it at the bottom of “Local Conditions”. Why not just put a simple menu item “7-Day Forecast” up? The main screen doesn’t visually separate the sections well. It looks like a mess to me. I liked the carousel much better. I’ll keep using it, but except for radar performance, I’m not thrilled with your recent updates. (Using an iPhone 7+).
Cluster mess 2/5
New app would be “ok” if it weren’t so cluttered. It looks terrible. I can’t tell weather from ads.
Seriously, I’ll PAY for your app with Zero ads. I love whnt, but The only thing you improved on was ads per square inch.
By Nicole Selman
The September 2018 update is awful. Navigation is difficult and the amount of ads is ridiculous. Please bring back the previous version! Sadly, I will be uninstalling the app and finding a new source for weather.
What was now isn’t 1/5
By CE gal
I don’t know who approved the new layout but it’s horrible- can’t distinguish between what are ads and what is the information I’m looking for. Id blame the issue on screen size assumptions (hey not all of us want to walk around with a brick size phone) but the iPad is equally troublesome. While I love the idea of not getting news alerts on a weather app I’ve yet to get the settings tab to even open to set this adjust this feature. And the update wiped out all my previously identified location data. I’d send the directly to you but the links don’t work either.
New weather app 1/5
I don’t like this new weather app. Will look for something else. Can’t they have 2 apps-the old one and the new then let us decide which app we want to use.
What happened 1/5
Updated now app will not open. When it did it is much harder to navigate. How do you set the alerts you want to receive????
Not updating for iPhone 5C 3/5
This keeps appearing as needing an update but then says it's not compatible with my phone. I have latest iPhone update.
My phones screen times out before the App loads. It used to be good but not if this continues.
Push Alerts 2/5
I downloaded the app to watch the news(which tends to freeze up), get weather alerts and get IMPORTANT news alerts. The news alerts are not specific to your area, therefore you will get EVERY news alert.....even ones that are not really that pressing, in my opinion.....including celebrity news. The push alert feature is abused.
Did not give any alerts during the storm on March 1
Will not open! 1/5
By David J. D.
Whenever I try to open the app, it crashes- SO ANNOYING!!!
Not helpful 1/5
The app won't work. When I open the app it takes me straight to the App Store to download Uber.
Stop with the notifications! 1/5
By Lisa Ann ms mommy
You used to only notify when bad weather is in the area. Now I get multiple useless notifications about the drought, chance of rain next week and weather forecast of the day.. stop. If I wanted local news and normal weather notifications I'd have the other apps you have. Based on the notifications I get the name of the app should be "clear sky's and no chance of rain". Stop sending notifications if the daily forecast and random "non-storm" weather.
Basic and functional 4/5
Simple and easy to use, I like the weather radar too.
Very pleased with the way this app.
It worked very well during the storms on April 3rd.
This app is very helpful during the two active tornado seasons in north Alabama. It is WHNT-quality coverage in the closet, basement, and anywhere else. Thanks!
Pretty impressed 5/5
By Hunter Balthazor
Very good app and worth downloading
Does fine on iPhone 5, but will not do anything on my iPad. Also, should eliminate the commercials, especially for cellular users.
Not dependable 1/5
I am very disappointed in this app. It is not dependable if you are expecting to be notified of approaching severe weather. I also have a weather app from WAFF channel 48. I am always notified of approaching weather from that app.
Whnt 19 weather app 5/5
Awesome app! Thank you so much!
Live Local News Stream! 5/5
Awesome app for streaming the local news, live radar, and weather alerts. Thanks!
Promo girl 5/5
Peace of mind. WHNT does it again. Love the ability to watch my favorite weather team track the weather. First and only station to do this in Tennessee Valley. An extra with this app is being able to watch streaming news.
The Best 5/5
This is the best app out when it comes to accessing weather or watching the news Live from any of our local news stations. I'm very pleased. I'll be sure to tell my friends
Not bad 4/5
I wish it combined the forecast with what it does provide so I wouldn't need two separate apps. That said, having a quick view of Radar and live feed can be nice.
WHNT has done it again! 5/5
By Official Blake Williams
WHNT has always strive to provide severe weather coverage to all of it's viewers. This app allows you to watch LIVE storm coverage via your iPhone, iPad, or, iPod touch. I love this sooooooooooooooooooooooo much! WHNT is the BEST! :)
Love this! 5/5

This is a first for the Tennessee Valley.
Jason Simpson fan 5/5
First of its kind for north Alabama.
