Worthless when it takes so long to load 1/5
The title says it all. Since the recent redesign of the app, it is almost useless. Why use this app when other weather apps open in a fraction of the time? I need accurate weather information quickly and the app no longer does it.
The original design was way better. Why load the 12.2 feed if you don’t want to see it? Why load the stupid blog posts? Why load the closings area when there are none? Etcetera. Stupid is as stupid does!
Nasty and not user friendly. Pretty much like this weather team who interrupts network programming to ramble on about stuff happening a hundred miles away when they have 12.2 and 12.5 broadcasting weather ALL THE TIME!!! Just put a crawl on the bottom of 12.1 and 12.4 saying there’s a potentially dangerous storm and refer people to 12.2 and 12.5 to get the details!!!!! Why have a 24/7 weather channel (simulcast on two sub channels) if you don’t use it to solve this ongoing and easily resolved issue?
New update is terrible 1/5
As title says. Deleting after having this on my phone for years. Unusable !! 0 stars
Too slow 2/5
I really love bed this app until this last update. It takes forever to load! Please fix it!
Rarely even opens after update 1/5
I used this all the time before the update. Now it takes forever to open. Normally I get tired of waiting or I have to go to work before I can check the weather. This is not useful. I have only been able to use it a couple times since the update. I had to load KAKE FirstAlert because I need to know the weather. Please fix it. I have an iPhone SE updated with the latest iOS and a 100 MBPS WiFi network. It should not be this slow. It was very pretty the couple times it opened. However, if it generally doesn’t open, what does that matter?
Did You Ask What We Wanted 1/5
The new version is graphic heavy, loads slow, removed the ability to see radar, mini stats (temp, wind chill, humidity) and forecast in one shot. Now it takes MORE time to wander through all the graphic heavy adds -and the worth-less video— to see the radar. And where did you hide windchill? I am looking for something else!!
Bad update 1/5
Sadly, this version has lots to be desired.
The map cannot be expanded and uses only half the screen. In the Locations the selected city is bright yellow with white lettering so cannot be read. The dark blue/black background on other screens has blue lettering that is nearly same value so very difficult to read. It was not intuitive how to delete a city. Finally discovered it in Settings. And in daily mode there is a band of advertising among the days. Wishing for previous version.
The only plus is it is certainly very colorful.
Ads and ridiculous weather alerts 2/5
“Blizzard warning in NW Kansas.” Gee, thanks, glad their is a blizzard warning hours away. Maybe you can throw in some weather alerts for Denver too as the same time. Completely irrelevant alerts and ad overload make for a two star rating.
Can no longer view forecast without persistent ads 2/5
As in the title. When viewing anything in the app a full screen advertisement pops up, after dismissing the ad it will come back within seconds making the app unusable. Along with this simply going to view a video forecast makes a video ad come up every single time. I get banner ads sure but this isn’t acceptable by any means. There’s plenty of alternative weather apps out there, only reason to use this was for local forecasts with our own meteorologists and to support the local station. But that’s getting much harder to do now.
My Best Weather App 5/5
I’m surprised at the low rating for this app. I love it!! I had five weather apps when I did my review and found this one to be the best. Yes, I get alerts for other parts of the KWCH viewing area but that doesn’t bother me.
Hint: if you don’t want notifications, turn them off.
The best! 5/5
By Lucky kitty!!!!!
This is the best weather app yet! Good forecasts and accurate information. I'd recommend! :)
It's now spamming 1/5
The app does a fine job of delivering local weather information. However, a key reason I used it was so I could get severe weather notifications. It used to limit itself to that. Then lately, it started sending out notifications for things like "clear and breezy". Annoying, but it delivered some info. NOW it is sending SPAM. Messages like, "Want to know when it will rain next? Check the app". Infuriating. Useless. If this doesn't stop in the next week, I'm moving away from this app.
Nuisance Notifications 1/5
The app was great until someone decided it was wise to send out daily alerts about nothing ("be sure to check you lottery numbers", "it's going to get hotter 3 days from today", "hey look at me"). I complained to their feedback on the 2nd instance, uninstalled it after about a week of daily nuisance alerts. Chatted with some friends at a local Apple user group today, 5 of 7 of us had each come to the same decision to uninstall this annoying app.
Turned into a SPAM bot 2/5
The app itself is a great way to check local weather and check the 24/7 weather stream when there is severe weather in the area.
Lately they have been sending out pointless notifications. Before I would get notifications severe weather in my area. Now I am getting notifications that the end of summer isn't here yet, there is a heat wave coming or that Labor Day is going to be between 80-90 degrees.
If they don't stop soon I'll be looking for another app for local weather alerts.
It was a great app... 2/5
This use to be my go to app for weather but I will be uninstalling it. I now get notifications that are just silly "First football then heat."
Stop sending stupid notifications 1/5
I want to only get notified if severe weather or flooding is approaching. I don't want anything else! Will delete and use other stations app if they don't stop.
I will be uninstalling soon 1/5
If you don't get rid of these stupid notifications that pop up once a day then I will be forced to uninstall. It used to be when I heard your notifications I would instantly grab my phone and look because you always told me about severe weather and such. Why would I want to know that the forecast is changing soon. Or about a hurricane that isn't even affecting me yet. Get rid of these stupid notifications please.
Why would I get random alerts for normal forecasts? I realize I have this app and I'll check the forecast at my leisure. I set the push alerts to notify me of weather warnings, not to tell me I have the app.
Pop up ad for daily/hourly forecast coupled with the extremely slow loading times for the radar means I'm uninstalling. Pretty sad as this was my favorite weather app.
Ads Have Ruined This App!! 1/5
I refuse to wait through these irritating game ads, etc. to get into your weather app! The ads that scroll across the bottom are plenty enough. This has always been my favorite go to app for weather...NOT ANYMORE!
What Happened?!?! 1/5
Now I have to watch a 30 second commercial for some stupid game to see the hourly forecast? This used to be my go to weather app, not anymore. 🖕🏻
Stop the nag 1/5
The latest update has made you nag me every time I open the app to turn on bluetooth. If I wanted it on, it would be on. Stop it already or I'll delete you!
Use this app all the time 5/5
Please fix location 3/5
I live in Wichita and have current location turned on. It keeps giving me alerts for Northeast Kansas.
Please Update this App! 2/5
Unless this app has been updated recently I probably wouldn't recommend using it as I was never getting alerts as I was supposed to. Hopefully they will announce a New upgraded version soon?
Please fix thanks 5/5

Weather radar not working
New update caused my app to go dark 1/5
The most recent update caused my Storm Team 12 app to go dark. It show that it is waiting to update. It will also not allow me to delete in order to reset the app. Please advise or fix this bug.
Storm Team 12 notifications 2/5
I love the app but it's kind of pointless to have an app that doesn't give you a notification when your in a watch or warning
App not working since update May 26, 2015 2/5
By Neck Tat
The app is not playing any kind of radar weather be past or future radar for some reason sense update on both mine and my wife's phone I don't know if the radars down or if there something wrong with it but the only thing I got was a text me 12 app text message and nothing from this app itself nor can we. See any radar or storms this app is usually good but for some reason it quit after update hopefully you can fix this
Radar issues 3/5
By Sideways Viewer
App opens on all of my apple devices but does not load the radar
Great app 4/5
Great app. The location indicator after the last update needs changed back. The icon is so big it's hard to really see the incoming weather.
Update is no good 1/5
By Airmans deployed
Since the last update my app will turn on selections I have turned off on its own. I don't care that lightening has been detected in my area!! I want this off and to stay off. I have a hard enough time telling my kids that thunderstorms are okay without the "help" of being told lightening is around us.
If I wanted this option on I would turn it on my self.
Thanks but no thanks!
Not accurate 1/5
This app is useless. The radar is not even close to accurate. Prediction are horrible. Waste of time.
Bad update 2/5
The update of this news app is not nearly as user-friendly as it was.
Good, but needs a couple of things. 4/5
By To many adds 45
During storms, my goto app. But daily weather needs more. Needs wind gusts. Make it easier to navigate. Maybe a rolling screen? Are there storm totals yet?
Never had any problems 5/5
Terrible app. Almost never right on precipitation percentages. Temperatures are always off, and constantly reads different weather predictions several times a day. DO NO USE.
Anytime there's a storm in Wichita I get an alert even though I have set my location elsewhere. I like to get alerts for severe weather but not if it doesn't apply to me.
Don't feel the future tracker is worth anything. It goes from a big storm in the "past" to practically nothing in the "future" tracker on the map. I also don't like how it skips 30 minutes or more in between the past & future. Feel it would be much better if it were more accurate. Other than it a fairly good weather app.
By KSU Wildcat111
Good app I like it, but please separate the alerts for thunderstorm and tornado. I don't need to know every five minutes there's a severe thunderstorm when I can hear the thunder. I really just want to be woken up if there is a tornado headed my way!
Great app 5/5
Again great app
I wish the app would show daily and monthly rainfall amounts.
Great app 5/5
I love this app. I would like to see an option for 24 hour precipitation amounts. During the storms on May 19th 2013 the app was not updating the radar. I was seeing radar images from 2-3 hours earlier that are not helpful!
By Brandon Dinkel
I liked the old map better but u i love the app!!
IOS 6 optimization 4/5
I like it a lot but can you please optimize the app for IOS 6 so it will fit my iPhone. I'd appreciate it a lot guys. 😉

I don't like the new version. It is not as user friendly.
Best Weather App Ever 5/5
By Jason Swart
Best weather app ever! Love the ten day forecast, love the weather radar, love the hourly, and it's super easy to get weather from any location in the world. Great app, beats all other weather apps out there! Thx kwch!
Great for anywhere! 5/5
Use this app to plan for work and play, everyday!
If you get the app, play around with it before an emergency because of the many options available to you. Very well thought out app:) A+
Good, but... 3/5
By Mr Melagio
The weather warning overlays are very distracting...would be nice if you could toggle them off. Can't hardly see through them
Excellent app 5/5
By Chad ZimmermanAC
We used this app to keep an eye on the weather for short term travel plans. Love the updated radar feature. Great app highly recommended !!
