Won't update 1/5
Won't update even though I have the required operating system. The version I have is glitchy.
By Lord Humppsalotalota
Junk. All we want is radar!!! NOT your hotel ads
Older version v.s. Newer one 2/5
By no nixkname works
As far as I am concerned, the older app is superior to this new one. It is more user friendly and is less cluttered. I can find out the information that I want with less distraction.
STOP the Annoying Doom Gloom Propaganda! 3/5
By Therapeutic Intentions
One of my favorite things to do every morning is grab my phone and watch the videos on the weather Channel. However more and more lately you find it necessary to spread doom and gloom about our planet or weather changes, etc. If this continues I will delete this app.
By Blaze Burkenstock
App won’t load. Just a blue screen.
New update 1/5
Update not compatible with my iPhone. Grrrr
Ok so I’ve loaded the latest update and now the app freezes. Close the app and reload and it’s still stuck in the same place that it locked up moments before.
I posted and got an instant “developer response”. Weird, cuz the response is dated June 29. Um, it’s April so I have no idea where that “response” came from.
By Ruthie Q
This sounds immature but the beige picture introducing the app is down right boring and ugly. The app itself is hard to get used too. Senior citizens are sometimes creatures of habit, I guess. I prefer the old app. It was easier to use and it gave me the info I wanted. I don’t really need all the other features.
Disturbingly fanatical agenda and videos 1/5
By Bug 8503
Loved this app until all of the videos started really getting fanatical about politics, climate change, earth doomsday stuff. Just browse through their videos and you’ll find them constantly telling us that the end of the earth is pretty much upon us. Used to love this app and have used it since the iPhone 4S, but finally just getting weary of the cheesy hype and deleting the app and going with Weather Underground.
Okay Map 4/5
By James Manzano
The map, when zoomed out a certain amount, gets rid of the rain in just a certain area. There is still rain there because if you zoom out, or in more, it appears again; but there is a sort of dead spot in the magnification.
Half of the videos don’t have anything to do with weather, so that is something TWC can focus on to improve.
Forecasts are wildly inaccurate 1/5
It’s not that the app is so bad, it’s just that the Weather Channel is more geared towards selling adds than forecasting weather. Typical was this morning, where the app indicated 5%-15% chance of rain, and the radar showed the only rain showers were 50 miles away over the past two hours. I put on all of my riding gear, rolled my motorcycle outside, and found that it a rain shower was blowing through. A check of another weather source showed 52% chance of rain, and their radar showed rain showers all around over the past hour. This kind of thing happens all of the time.
Constantly Self Sponsoring with Pointless Videos 1/5
I would like this application to only have the weather, however it continues to show weather channel sponsored video options. I purchased this app to remove ads. Then I turned off video auto play, and that was not enough. The weather channel has become a false weather entity, it has fallen behind the times due to advancements in technology that fundamentally ruin its purpose, and instead of sticking to their guns and showing the weather and the weather only, they constantly try to bombard their customers with pointless videos about things I personally do not care to watch. I suggest removing the videos and letting me have just the weather information.
Good luck logging in 1/5
I originally logged in through the app and after an update it repeatedly provided errors when logging in our trying to reset my password. Done with it.
Inappropriate repetitive ads 1/5
By Jalapeno Rojo
Constant inappropriate repetitive click bait ads. When reported the same one keeps appearing.
Don’t like the videos 2/5
I don’t review many apps but I wanted to review The Weather Channel because of an issue I have with it. I get on several times a week and I do not appreciate the dead animal videos that are on the app almost every time I open it. I’m tempted to delete the app because of this.
By 313 421 175
If you love your weather with a healthy dose of overdramatic click bait then you came to the right place. For example, a 20% chance of rain will be referred to as possible deadly death showers from above. A lightning storm, be prepared for hell fire brought down from with total and absolute destruction possible. Whenever you check the weather on this app, it will very clearly outline all of the different ways you could die. It’s helpful for those folks who live by themselves in a shack in the woods and like to wear aluminum foil hats. For normal people who just want the weather, there are much better apps out there.
Riddled with advertisements 1/5
By Way 2 rob me!
This would be a great app if not for the constant advertisements going on all over the app. You gotta watch a 35 second commercial before you can watch a 20 second video. Not worth it! This app is garbage.
Millennial Edition 3/5
By Rick from Sunshine Way
Kids love stuff that’s ugly and over complicated. This app is perfect for them. How about giving me the basics at a glance rather than make me scroll and click every time. Glad you haven’t gotten rid of your old app... yet.
Location, alerts, and Login Issues 2/5
I’m currently unable to set alerts due to my location settings. Even though I’ve given full/always location permissions. It will not save the alerts unless I choose a location. This is the only reason I need your app, and I will discontinue using it until this problem is fixed.
I can’t login with Facebook. It logs in on the Facebook side, and grants access, but I get an error as soon as I come back into the weather app.
I will update my rating once these issues are addressed.
Not enough info 4/5
By Old Norm
Don’t just show the barometric pressure, show whether it is rising or falling.
This app seems to work pretty well for the most part but the widget needs some work. Most times it doesn’t even show the current temperature and I’d like to see the weather for the next few hours under the “Show More” in the widget, rather than a video of an area that isn’t related to my location.
Weather’s weather wherever, but- 3/5
Now this app stops my music every single freaking time I open it, and that’s reason enough to stop using it. The weather forecast is pretty much the same wherever it comes from. Give us an audio fix and all would be perfect!
By Audrie Rathman
I love this app and especially the interesting videos, until a weather-girl goes off all liberal and hateful. Remember 50% of the country is conservative!
Loyal customer no longer 1/5
I have had this this app for years. I originally purchased the ad free version. When they eliminated this version, they gave me one year ad free. I purchased the ad free option for $3.99 after my one year expired. They have my money, but I still have the ads. I have written multiple times but received no response.
Not good anymore. 1/5
By Geoffrey E.
I can’t enable significant weather alerts because it doesn’t give me any options to add my location. It says I have to select my location but it doesn’t give me the option and my location is set to on.
Constantly crashing 2/5
Constantly crashing please update.
Consistently terrible 1/5
Had this app for years, I don’t know why. Half the time the thing doesn’t even open. I’m not going to wait forever to look at the weather. App is crap!
For the iPad 2/5
...I much prefer the landscape view provided by the original app. I keep getting notices that I need to switch to the upgraded version, which seems to have been developed specifically for the iPhone.
I understand a desire to maintain one version of an app. Add “Feel Like” and “Humidity” to the hourly temps and I’ll grudgingly make the switch. Until then, I’m using the original version as long as it continues to function.
Best weather app 5/5
App Will not load on iPad Air 2 with Satellite internet. 1/5
.. it kept suggesting update to this app.. the old version does work (accept for blurry radar at times).
This app hasn’t loaded once after excepting all allowed requirements.
Just a blank blue screen.
Not very impressed 1/5
Loved and used the old app on a regular basis. Too much scrolling on this version to find what used to be readily available on the bottom of screen toolbar (if you can find the info you want at all). Go to the feedback page, and you can’t, but the help page seems to be extensive, but where do you leave the questions that they post their FAQ answers to?
Alerts keep turning on 1/5
I’ve had this app for years on my iPhone. About 2 weeks ago I started getting alerts that I didn’t want. Checked iPhone settings and alerts off. Checked app and some alerts were on. Turned them off. Next day they were back on. Repeated this process a few times until I had to delete app bc the alerts wouldn’t stay off. Sorry weather channel. Until this bug is fixed I’ll get my weather elsewhere
Spam nightmare 2/5
Too long to load, too much spam.
Really wish I would not have upgraded! 1/5
This is terrible. Now it is just like my phone weather app! I lost the amazing interface where I could scroll through all of the places I had set up to see the weather there. I do not want to scroll and scroll left and right to see the weather. I’m so so disappointed that they would ruin this app. I will be looking for something else.
The ads 1/5
Enough is enough! I can’t even open the app to see the temp without it taking me somewhere else to view spam. You could at least make it worth it and accurately predict the weather. To many adds everywhere
iPad Gen 4 1/5
You guys get one star. I have a iPad 4, according to your list iPad 4 not mentioned. I used this app for years did you forget about iPad 4???
Pop up ads and video advertisements 1/5
When I want to check the weather but a 30 second pop up movie advertisement keeps coming up over and over it ruins this app. I can use a different app instead
Need a more recent map, not one that is a few years old 5/5
Need a more recent map
Alerts need fixed 3/5
Almost everyday the alerts are turned back on. This needs to stop immediately. No one needs to be woken at 2 am for an alert that says frost warning.
Umm.. I’m confused 3/5
This is a great app I use it all the time but when I checked it today I got confused because it said heavy rain Thursday so I clicked on it and it brought me to April 13 which was actually Friday but it’s not the 13th it’s the 18th and it’s still bringing me weather from last week...?
Worst weather app out there 1/5
It wouldn’t be so bad if it actually worked most of the time. Every time I bring the app out of the background it brings up the “getting latest weather info” or similar notification at the top of the screen, which is fine except that it never refreshes and hangs/locks in that position. Half the time when I switch locations it freezes.
Notification needs work. 3/5
By Crack Berry David
I am getting notifications for weather that are no where near me. At first they stopped when I created an account and set up notifications for my area, then a few days ago I started receiving them again.
Was great until last update 1/5
Deleting the app. This is ridiculous. Thanks for not listening to your users.
Stop turning on my notifications. It’s ridiculous that I have to turn them off again every single day. If I want to know about the weather, I open the app.
Problem with locations and alerts 4/5
Locations are not selectable when trying to get alerts turned on in settings. You click settings then enable then it says to select location (or cancel). Location header appears but nothing underneath and it’s not clickable. You can only cancel out at that time. Thereby not enabling alerts for your desired locations.
Extremely slow. Terrible lag. 1/5
This app is very frustrating to use. All of the useless embedded apps and videos cause even the simple task of scrolling down the page take forever. I will be deleting.
New weather app. 2/5
The new weather app is like going from college back to junior high school. It is very poorly written, please don’t take the old app from us!
Wind chill forecast 2/5
I had to upgrade from the old iPad app, and I really miss having wind chill in the hourly forecast. Please add it to the universal app.
By Train an
I upgraded to this APP. It hasn’t worked properly ever since I got it the old version was better. Have the time it will not load the radar and very very slow to work. Guys you need to do something better than this one
New update deleted again 1/5
Still has fake non related weather content. Delete once again. Please allow us to at least turn these annoying videos off in the settings. Even the weather forecast videos don’t mirror the actual Weather Channel. This is what happens when two separate companies own the same product. It just doesn’t work. You are not even listening to most of the reviews and users. GET RID OF THE VIDEOS! Create a separate gossip news app for these. Or hire people that care about and know Meteorology. Send the current employees to TMZ. Ari has no clue about the weather. He sounds like a robot reading from a TelePrompTer. Can’t trust a weather forecast from someone who doesn’t know the weather. Provide videos of storm chaser footage instead. That we know actually happened during the bigger storms. Company greed much?
What’s going??? 1/5
What’s going on with you guys at The Weather Channel? This app used to be very accurate and on point! I still have last Friday’s 4/13/2018 60 second weather video still showing and today is 4/17/2018!! I have a paid subscription! And this is the type of service I get! I reached out to you guys and NEVER do I get an answer! Which is sad because you guys would rather somebody email their problem then to hear the persons voice! I’m just waiting for my subscription to run out so I can run as fast as possible away from you guys! I even tried to get my money back! But no chance! This is very sad! You guys should be called the weather rip offs!!
