StormTeam8 - WTNH Weather app reviews
I liked it until... 2/5
Auto playing ads is too intrusive and obnoxious. Deleting this app.
Ads are annoying 2/5
App is useful and I like the storm warnings. But ads are obnoxious and no means to remove.
Used to be good but I uninstalled due to full screen pop up ads. No option to pay to remove ads.
Needs a bit of work 3/5
Don't get me wrong, I very much enjoy this app. It supplies a wealth of knowledge of the weather, and I love the lay out. And it is much easier to navigate the weather than the regular WTNH-News 8 app. However, there are quite a few bugs. Half of the time when I try to open this app, it brings me to the opening screen & then closes by itself. The videos need work. They play and pause and I manually push play and they keep pausing. But the biggest problem with the videos is there is NO SOUND! No matter how loud I turn my device up-no audio. The problem with just about every link, panel or aspect of the WXEdge app, it works about 50% of the time. If these technical issues are fixed, this could be one the greatest weather apps out there. For iPhone users, our pre-installed weather app is "The Weather Channel". But if improvements are made to make WXEdge fully functioning, I would much rather prefer to use it as my "go to" weather app!
Started off okay... 2/5
Was enjoying the app. Wish I could choose my own city instead of new haven (which is 20 minutes away). But within the last week or so the app has been crashing every single time.
Would like to see optimized for iPhone 6 3/5
By Richard Marganski
Pros: Locally tailored/focused weather news, much easier to use than the web site, radars and other features are useful.
Cons: Would like to see updated to take advantage of iPhone 6 screen size, design is horrible (looks like an app from early 1990s), videos seem to play only in HD so they can be slow to load (videos should load optimized for mobile).
Great weather app 4/5
The radar is quite a feature, very user friendly and the first I've seen that allows you to see future weather conditions within the same screen. I just hope they don't go overboard with the ads...
