Terrible Update 2/5
WHYYYY would you all give us this crappy updated version? This app has always been what I relied on fir weather but now I have to use something else. Just please give me back my old version.
Horrible update 1/5
Why am I constantly getting notifications that rain is approaching my area when there are no clouds in the area?
Bad weather app 1/5
Channel 6 definitely went the wrong direction when supposedly improving the weather app , I agree with so many other people the radar is definitely a disaster, now you have to go to fox or other apps to see what is happening.
Please put old app back, this new one doesn’t work 2/5
Please put old app back This new app isn’t usable The radar doesn’t work Unable to add other locations the temperature wasn’t available
BRING BACK Old App. 1/5
New app is not my can of beer.
Great app!! 5/5
I got this app and it got me through a tornado. They notify me when rain is coming and tell me if lightning is close to me. I recommend this app!!
Terrible update 1/5
I agree with Rushbabymama. This is not a user friendly app anymore. It looks fancy but is difficult to read, drops pins, slow progression of radar, less options.
This version is awful 1/5
The old version was great. This version is awful! The radar rarely works as it should, and when it does, most often, it’s only showing a circular image. My son lives in OKC, and a lot of our storms come from there, but this radar very rarely now allows me to see the weather in the OKC area even though I have it pin marked. Like others, I now find myself using other sources for my weather, when used to be my only source. Very disappointing.
News 6 1/5
Please go back to the original app! This one is not user friendly for older people!
Channel 6 weather update for phone 1/5
Whoever is your developer took a great app and totally messed it up!! Hard to find local radar, hard to follow, hard to do anything. I have moved my go to - any other station is now better! So sad- I loved your previous app. ZERO stars compared to previous. Ok, it won’t even send unless I tap a star- had to tap 1 just to get it to send—fake rating!!!
Randomly Crashes 1/5
I was just looking at the weather and the radar and the app crashed so I went back on it and 30 seconds later it crashed again
New Weather App 1/5
The old app was much easier to use and get info fast. This new app is not user friendly. I will look for a new weather app if this stays. I loved the old one it was easy to get what we needed. I have had to use channel 5 fox and channel eight to see what we need to stay safe. Please change this sight back to the other version.
Great app 4/5
I saw a lot of reviews on how it’s difficult to get to the weather radar and I can’t seem to figure out why those reviews were posted. I downloaded the app clicked on the menu bar and the radar was one click away from there. You zoom into the area which you want to see and play the clip.
Can’t see time 5/5
Whenever we’re watching the live radar I can’t see the time as it passes. I only see the date and then you can see the beginning of the time with dad’s but I can’t tell what time it is as it’s going through the live radar.
Very Informational, a must have 5/5
This app is extremely informational. The dislike ratio is not understood. It is very easy to navigate and has an abundance of options.
The radar has customizable options that are valuable and not unnecessary. It has a 24 hour radar option which I adore.
You can set up to 16 locations in the Alerts tab and customize the alerts you receive. There are 60+ alerts available that you can switch on or off. It has anything from the extremely important tornado alert to heat advisory or thick fog or freeze advisory.
The Weather tab has a complete weekly forecast with an abundance of information below each day.
I love this must have app to keep me up to speed on the weather or potentially dangerous storms!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
This new app is terrible. The radar is hard to read and follow. Please go back to the old radar at least. Here we are entering into tornado/severe weather season and I don’t find your app helpful anymore at all. Constantly getting rain in your area notifications when it’s not in our area. My entire family feels the same about the app. Such a horrible decision and not user friendly at all. Please do an update to correct this issue. When we had all the bad weather and rain the last Tuesday in April my app wasn’t functioning properly at all and I had no idea what was going on.
Bye bye. 1/5
By un- happy
Im going to channel 23 your older app was so much better, this is slow radar loads slow, radar slider is so small I keep adding a new location because I can’t hit the forward arrow. So sad I’ve been a fan of channel 6 for over 30 years. You’ve had many responses that people were not happy, I vote with my feet. Im going to delete this app after this is posted.
NEW WEATHER APP 👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼 1/5
I agree with the previous review! The new updated version is useless! The radar rarely functions properly and NOTHING is at your fingertips as it once was. I know at least 12 people using the Channel 6 weather app and not one is happy with it. The old version was great! Why mess with a good thing? I have been a diehard fan of Channel 6 forever but sadly have been forced to delete the 6 app and download a local competitor. When weather is bad we need a team and an app we can rely upon.
Why did you fix what wasn’t broken? 1/5
I am echoing all of the recent reviews...why did you change the easy to read format to this immensely convoluted app? The old format was perfect, so much so that I had introduced friends and family to it to track the weather. We have ALL deleted the app since the update, it’s now completely useless. Please please please listen to the people taking time to leave reviews here and go back to the beautiful simplicity that was your prior design!
Don’t like new app 1/5
I don’t get this app, I can’t see radar as easily for my area. The older one was far better!
New Radar 1/5
I switched Tulsa Weather Apps because of your new radar. Wish you would change back.
Not User Friendly 2/5
Don’t know who is responsible for this app but someone should put it out of its misery!
Updated App HORRIBLE 1/5
By 1903A4 shooter
I HATE this new version. It’s garbage!!! Not reliable, radar doesn’t actually move, just shows up as pretty colors on the map. I 100% DO NOT recommend this app! I went back to My Radar!
Update is worthless! 1/5
Whoever designed the update should be fired if not drug out in the street. The previous version worked great and gave you all the info you needed quickly. The radar worked awesome. Now you can see a 7 day forecast without scrolling through a bunch of crap and the radar omg is it useless. Pathetic updated and will be deleted when I find a replacement.
Travis don’t stand for this crap!! Get it fixed!
Update ruined it 1/5
I gave it time to try to adjust to the updates, but they’re horrible. Radar is worthless.. if it’s cloudy outside, it looks like it’s raining/storming on radar. Actually deleting the app and using something better. Sad, because it was great before the update.
It wasn’t broken until it was fixed 1/5
CHANNEL 6 app developers PLEASE HEAR OUR CRIES: THE NEW RADAR IS VERY HARD TO NAVIGATE! The old app was my go to. Easy to read, easy to see the roads/cities. This app update is AWFUL. Looks “fancy” but is useless in a pinch. My son is the only one who hasn’t updated this app and I have forbidden him too because if I am in a closet trying to figure out if we are in the direct path of a tornado, I DONT NEED TO SSE THE LAST 30 MINUTES OF RADAR. I want to see my location RIGHT NOW. (And be able to see the roads, etc...can’t see them any more with the yellow and red shading that completely blocks them out.)
ALSO, every time I touch the screen a pin drops with the location I tapped. & the only way I can delete the pin, that I didn’t want in the first place, is to go to the menu & put the new location in the trash can. Really, we don’t need fancy. We just need it to work which is why it was my go to in the past. PLEASE FIX!!!!! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!!!
Horrible update 1/5
The old app was much easier to follow. The weather info was all on one screen, I could see the week at a glance. I have to do too much searching to find what I’m looking for. I’m deleting this app and looking for another.
Update is awful! 1/5
The old app was so much better, I hate that you can’t see the 7 day forecast on one screen. With the 7 day being all black and white it’s harder to see and know what each day is and why is it broken down by day and night?!? The radar takes so much longer to load because it goes back 1.5 hrs in time. It’s nice to know that but is it necessary...can there be a setting to change that.
“Updated” App is Awful 1/5
The News on 6 has been my go to weather app for years...my only complaint was I felt you could add too few locations. The new app is terrible....talk about finding a solution to a problem that doesn’t exist! You can’t see the extended forecast on one screen anymore. The radar is terrible...I have no idea where they source it from. It’s useless and inaccurate. I’m staring out at sunny skies right now but per the new improved app it shows rain in Tulsa right now. 😂 I’m off to delete this and check out Channel 8.
I have used the old app since it was available. Loved it! I am not a fan of the new updated version. The old version was easier to navigate, and quite honestly, I got pretty good at determining the potential hooks on radar for tornadoes. The new radar is just not as user friendly. I do love our Channel 6 weather guys though. Thank you for keeping us always informed.
An awesome app 5/5
The people who don’t like this app are crazy. It’s an awesome app with a view Of the local live radar and threatnet
Not functional in iPad 1/5
This app does NOT work on iPad. I have deleted and reinstalled multiple times. Swirling circle of death every time it tries to open. The app works on my phone but is a huge step backwards compared to the previous version. Very clumsy interface and is not intuitive. Deleting from my iPad for the 3d time.
Never works 1/5
I like the format but the thing never works! I try to open it and the tiny wheel just turns and turns...This happens so often and is so frustrating, especially when I want the weather in a hurry, as OKs weather can change rapidly and it’s critical to know what’s happening.The radar screen is so small it’s hard to see what’s going on. I loved the OLD app. Please! FIX THIS!
What were they thinking 1/5
Compared to previous app which was Ok (not great, but Ok), this app is subpar. It has too much of what I don’t need and requires too much fiddlin’ to get the basic information needed. The video forecast would be great if they were more current. At 8pm CST the most recent forecast is from the early AM. Fortunately, there are other local alternatives to this station.
Bad times 10 1/5
Nothing good! Can't get rid of the huge blob saying where I am on the radar map. Only one thing this app gets WRONG!
Channel 6 weather 1/5
Was great but I don’t recognize this one. Is it the same app? Cause it sure doesn’t look like it. Why mess with a good app
New update is terrible! 1/5
By Call it like I see it guy
This app is no longer user friendly at all. My wife and I used this app daily. It was much more useful to have a seven day forecast in a single glance. All of the scrolling is ridiculous. I reward you 0 points for all of the other unnecessary video graphics in the background. All this does is make the important information harder to read. You really shot yourselves in the foot with this new fancy upgrade.
Will not load 1/5
Whoever made this weather app need redo it, will not load up, send to Travis Myers, Jamie
It was great before the update 2/5
I’ve used this app for years and have had no problems until the most recent update. The entire format changed making it difficult to navigate and the new weather map in itself is confusing. It’s hard to tell what colors mean what anymore and instead of being able to look at a legend to find out (like you could before), you have to click on an area within the watch/warning/advisory. So far these are the only problems I’ve found but they make it very frustrating to use.
Why fix something that isn’t broken? 2/5
The newest version has made it so that everything is so hard to access unless you spend a lot of time on it learning where everything is. It wasn’t broken before, and any inaccuracies could’ve been fixed without the redesign. Overall, I am disappointed with the decision to remodel the app, and hope that they revert it ASAP.
Not as good as it ideas to be 1/5
The update has degraded the app. Not near as user friendly.
Why update a perfectly good app? To make it better? Not this app. This app was my firs line of defense against OK weather living in the country. Now, with the new updates, all the great features, as seeing in the radar where severe weather is or choosing which alerts are important to me, are gone. With this update we went from an advanced app that I shared with others to a horribly basic app that I just may end up deleting. Just in time for Oklahoma tornado season. Why?
“Updated” app is awful! 1/5
The old app was so much easier to navigate. Everything was easily accessible. Not on this one going from page to page or scrolling up and down. The alert system is absurd. Alerts should be for significant severe weather watches or warnings NOT it’s going to rain in 30 minutes or the wind is blowing. My only option is to turn alerts off or on. Since I can’t select select what alerts I want that leaves me to just turn alerts off. If I turn them off I have no use for this app at all. Not at all user friendly anymore and basically worthless. Sending out numerous ridiculous “alerts” is also unsafe by causing people to ignore them at some point due to frequency of alerts. Will delete app and rely on NOAA and Dark Sky.
Am I the only person who works outside and wants to see a 7 day forecast with wind direction and speed? New update is terrible!
Miss the other app 3/5
This new version takes longer to navigate through the weather. I miss the week in view with the highs and lows in one view. Weatherbug has been my go to app ever since this update so I can see the 10 day forecast in one view and not have to scroll down a long page. I do like the radar view, option to still watch live, and school closings link.
Horrible update!! 1/5
I used to love this app, it was so easy to find all the information. NOW it’s awful!! You have to search all over for everything, no longer user friendly. I hate this app now!
Fancy doesn’t equal better 1/5
By Mr. Sleep Incorporated
App got fancy. That doesn’t mean it got better! Channel six use to have an awsome online radar years ago. Not any more. It’s the same watered down radar that everyone else has. How is it that the app radar and the radar on the tv looks different? How is it that I’m getting rained and hailed on but the app radar doesn’t show anything where I’m at???
Absolutely hate this update 1/5
I would give it 0 stars if it were an option. It is not user friendly. I have used the other version for years. I even used it to monitor the voice notifications for weather alerts for my elderly mother in Oklahoma when I moved to Arkansas and also for my locations when traveling.
Confusing and complicated. 1/5
The new update is confusing to use and makes it almost the same at the regular news on 6 app. It’s not just simple weather but now more options and harder to use. I’m trying to give it time and get used to the changes but I’m just not a fan.
