Crappy location alerts 2/5
Ever since the update a month ago, I have lost all location based weather alerts. I was able to turn most of them back on. However, the alerts that are location based do not detect my location for me to be able to turn on the alert. I heavily rely on the notifications for weather related alerts and the location based weather notifications are a main (if not the only main) reason why I use the weather channel app on my iPhone6s. If it’s not fixed, I’m heavily considering switching back to the Apple app after using this app for 6 years.
No saved locations? 2/5
Where did saved locations go? This app just got A LOT worse. I used to be able to swipe between saved locations. Now it seems any new location must be searched for. What’s the deal?!?!
Great...then terrible 1/5
This app used to be great, but in the last month it took a turn. Every time I open it, I immediately get redirected to a video ad right away. Officially switching back to Apple Weather thanks to a terrible UX.
Humidity levels 1/5
By Bucky Mouse
I enjoy hanging my laundry outside. The older version of this app gave humidity levels for each hour. The new one does not. Very disappointed.
Doesn’t work correctly 2/5
This app is inferior to the one it replaced. Very inconsistent. I usually just close it and save myself the frustration.
Not recommended 1/5
By Kingdom Proclaimer 5277
This app consistently changes my location to “Ohio, Ohio” and I need to change it to my location almost every time I open it. I have submitted location error reports multiple times, but it continues.
The temperatures in one screen do not agree with the temperatures in the other screen.
The radar is sometimes way behind the actual conditions. It cannot be trusted.
The Storm app worked much better but this replaced it.
Although I paid the subscription fee I am looking to replace this app.
Good accurate app, but 3/5
App info is accurate and radar is a useful feature that some other apps don’t include, but the length of ads on videos are a little bit insane. The same ad plays before every video and usually it’s duration is as long if not longer than the actual video. There was one day that every video had a 9+ minute ad before you could watch a ~45 second clip. Get it together people!
Has not worked since I updated my iPad 1/5
This app hangs and does not load content since I updated to iOS 11.4. Unusable.
What improvements? 2/5
By Ack lady
I waited until the last possible moment to to switch to this “upgrade”. I’ve tried to like it, but I just can’t. The radar is slow, it crashes almost every time I’ve used it, and I really miss being able to swipe through favorites. It’s just too cluttered, and not user friendly.
Water temperature?? 3/5
By Rangers Rule 72583
I love this app and it’s great for the weather but you took away the water temperature feature. I used to use that all the time and now it’s gone!
Missing Locations 2/5
I enjoy this app. I use it routinely.
However, there are bugs where you cannot set the location.
Even If I set Location Services to always on, when I select Options —> My Alerts —> Significant Weather, location is not available so it cannot be set.
Same with government alerts. The app says that GPS permissions are off. But they are on.
Can’t swipe between cities/locations. 3/5
Since the 9.10 update, I (and several friends’ have also verified this) can no longer swipe right and left between the locations I have set up. Swiping either way now takes us directly to the page where we set up locations, where we have to select a location in order to get to it.
I’d rather be able to swipe back and forth between locations.
One star for now 1/5
I use to love this app. Now, not so much. When I look at the map to to see the future forecast for rain and storms, I get nothing. The map never shows rain anymore. I have storm clouds rolling in now and the map shows nothing. It is frustrating.
Awful - Doesn't load or scroll properly 1/5
By News Hound ###
I couldn't stand it anymore. It takes forever to load with multiple tries. Then I can't swipe to scroll down. I deleted it and then downloaded AccuWeather. It's been a mess ever since IBM bought it.
Loved old app 2/5
Do not like how this new weather app functions. Do not like adds that pop up on bottom that has no option to cLose. They prevent me from scrolling down or seeing what’s under it.
Old version was great.
This app is TERRIBLE!
NEVER CORRECT. must be nice to be a weatherman....be wrong 90% of the time and still have a job.
Not accurate and overloaded with ads 1/5
By Emarald city
I thought this app was pretty darn good! But all the sudden every time the app says it’s going to rain and be 72 degrees, it doesn’t. This app is wrong about almost every time it “predicts” the weather. And no it’s not because “Mother Nature is always changing” because if they can determine which clouds have heavy rain, storms, snow, etc... but they can’t ever tell when it’s going to rain?! And sometimes this app says “SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WARNING 100% CHANCE” but nothing ever happens the whole day and no storm clouds are in sight.
I am very disappointed that this app will try to scare you so you keep checking the weather, so the advertisers can get more screen time
Can’t get significant weather updates to work. 2/5
Keeps telling me to select a location but no options.
Extremely poor predictive analytics 1/5
The application itself functions well. However, the weather predictions are consistently, atrociously, unbelievably inaccurate. Specifically, while the temperatures and winds for the short term - one to two days - are reasonably accurate, the forecasts of cloud cover, rain, and frequently frontal passages are unbelievably poor. It is common, usual even, for the daily weather forecasts to change dramatically overnight; for example, form a predicted 80+% chance of rain with cloudy skies to 10% rain chance with scattered clouds or clear skies. Any idiot could in the morning peer out the window and make as accurate a forecast for the day as does this app...and likely without making a stupidly contrarian forecast the evening before. It seems the predictive performance of this app degraded dramatically when IBM purchased The Weather Channel and employed Watson to generate the forecasts. Apparently as inaccurate regarding weather prediction as oncological diagnostics. Bottom line: use another source for weather forecasting.
Slow Loading 1/5
Lately the app is loading incredibly slowly if at all on my 5s and on my wife’s 7. I have deleted it and will now re-download and hope I can pay to get a non-advertising version. It’s become virtually unusable for the last 10 days
Merely a vessel for spam 1/5
Absolute garbage. Reloads everything if you swipe to another location, reloads everything if you exit the app, auto plays third party ads with sound, makes you watch ads on every single video.
Won’t even run! 1/5
Since I updated my iPhone 6s to iOS 11.3, (I’m at 11.4 now,) it hasn’t worked. I try to open it and it just hangs. And hangs. And hangs. I left it for 15 minutes one day, thinking maybe it was just glitching, but nope. We had bad storms lastnight and I didn’t even get warnings. I’ve reinstalled it 4x already and still have same problem. Please fix it!!
Sometimes newer is NOT better. The older version was much more user friendly. Plus, way to many pop ups. This used to be my “go to” app for the weather but, now I find myself using the other weather apps.
Would love a humidity reading in the app 4/5
The app is great, but it would be great if the hourly forecast could include humidity as it does on the website.
By Joshua Rohloff
Slow to open and scroll through. Used to be a lot better.
No longer works! 1/5
I have had, loved, and highly recommended this app for over a decade. The information was accurate, timely, and well laid out. Unfortunately it quit working three weeks ago. I have been holding out hope that they will fix it, but as they have not yet even acknowledged the problem, it is clear that is time for me to find a new source.
This update is terrible 1/5
I was forced to get the latest version of The Weather Channel App. It’s A big step down from the version I have been using for years. It takes a long time to load and once I get to the radar feature, I have to exit the app and then reopen it to get an updated radar image. I’m going to download the NOAA App and delete this app.
The most inaccurate app for weather i’ve ever used. I wake up this morning and check the forecast for rain to use as a guide if I should take my motorcycle out, and no rain in the forecast until later in the week. So what happens when I get out of work the very same day, yup rain. Lots of rain!! I guess the storm took an unforeseeable turn that the over paid forecasters never saw coming. This is probably the 7 or 8th time in the last few months this has happened
Accurate, simple, can’t ask for more. 5/5
By Mr. Maiq
The rain alerts, severe weather notifications are prompt, and seemingly accurate, so far no issues.
Fix the glitches! 2/5
I love this app but the glitches just make me close the app I am obsessed with weather and that is why I ask you to fix the glitches and for you to answer all these comments and f you fix the glitches I will give you five stars
Really bad 1/5
Just awful it’s inconvenient, inaccurate and slow to load
Downgrade of an update 1/5
The latest version is in essence a major downgrade. For one thing, it caused the app to forget that I’ve already paid to remove ads. When I try to restore purchases, it pops up that there is nothing to restore. When I try to buy it again just to see if it will allow me to, iTunes warns that I have already purchased it and if I do so again, it will only extend the current subscription. The ads are so intrusive and resource heavy now that they cause the app to frequently stall or freeze, and sometimes even crash. Maybe this is also partly due to the other resource heavy content they put on the app like the ridiculous amount of video content. The Weather Channel organization has irritated me for many years with its blatant weather news sensationalism, but I continued to use the app because it used to be fairly decent and reliable. Not so much with the new app overhaul that came out a couple of weeks ago. And now that they have taken over and overhauled the Weather Underground apps as well, these too are much less than what they once were.
I liked the old version. New version to difficult to use.
Future Look Radar Doesn’t Work 2/5
I’ve used this app as my primary for a while and I’ve finally decided to discontinue and uninstall. I use the future radar often. I have the “past” look through 2:45 which shows rain all over the place, however, “future” at 2:45 shows nothing but some rain to the north west. As a result, it makes me question the accuracy of the daily forecast and I’m done with it.
Updated app for iPad 3/5
By Kayla's g'ma
Nope, nope, nope! App only displays when iPad is upright & the display is either too big or too small! Too many ads & I'm not paying to get rid of them! Info is good, but what a hassle to access it!
Least accurate radar ever 1/5
The app correctly finds my current location, but shows storms traveling miles and miles from where they actually are (over me). I am now rained into this Chipotle. We are out of rice. It’s been three days.
App loads better now. 4/5
Thanks for the quick fix on the slow loading. App seems to load quicker now.
Original: Takes forever to load when you first open it. I usually give up and just look at Apple’s weather app or use Google.
Videos can be annoying 3/5
I like the hourly forecast and radar of this app. But do like all the dramatically sensational videos you have to scroll past to get to the weather.
Marketing, not predicting 1/5
So tired of the 4 day out forecast always having an elevated precipitation chance that decreases as you get closer. Back to the non-biased a NOAA for me. Deleted this app
What happened to TWC? 2/5
I’ve had this app for years and it used to be pretty well layed out but I don’t know if it’s just bad meteorologists or what but the 5 day forcasts are never right. It’ll say 0% chance of rain and flood or it’ll say 100% chance of rain and never rain. One day Tuesday will call for 80% chance of rain and when Tuesday arrives it’s only 10%. On top of that there’s more weather commercials and ads than there is weather. You also have to scroll down a long page just to see the radar instead of making it directly accessable from the top with just a click. I hope these issues can be fixed. I’ve had the app for too long to have to do away with it.
Constantly Crashes 2/5
I love this app when it’s working. I haven’t been able to open this app for at least two weeks. Today, I finally decided to uninstall and reinstall.
Does not work 1/5
This app no longer works and I can not find a way to contact them. So deleting after many years of having it. Hasn’t worked for about a month.
I’ve not gotten used to the new format, but am not thrilled with the way it works. I miss being able to see the humidity levels expected for the day. Yes, it matters, in the summertime especially. It simply seems to be more complicated to see all the data at a glance. Still, most of the info is there if one wants to take the time to look for it.
Why oh why 🤷🏻♀️ 1/5
I can’t set my location? Am I missing something? I’m in tornado alley and it never went off when a twister was just up the street! Last week and yesterday and today it went off saying it was going to rain and not a cloud in the sky!!!
What is going on with the WC Does anyone know anything???
WC if your reading these some answers would be mighty fine but I guess you don’t care or don’t want to! That is so so sad we really rely on you but you spend more time with the videos....which a couple of days of them are fine, but not a month of them!!! And the same ones keep showing up under different titles that’s REALLY REALLY BAD!!!! I’m sure there is a lot of good stuff happening out in the world!
WC YOU HAVE BECOME DISAPPOINTING!!! Sorry it’s how I feel❗️❗️🙅🏻♀️😠😡🤬🤯😢🤨😖😖😖
So I just deleted this app because the radar features are terrible I went to go look at the storms for my area and it says it’s not raining. So I get up go look out my window and it’s down pouring with thunder and lightning. So I recommend any other app out there...DO NOT USE THIS APP.
Uhh it’s s good like fxxck mee
Beware of paying for ad removal!!! Dishonest 1/5
By NJ Guitarist
I paid to have ads removed. They were gone for a week or so, then re-appeared and I can’t restore my purchase. Very dishonest business practice. Avoid letting them take your money and give nothing in return. Shameful.
Liked the old format better! 2/5
I liked being able to swipe through my favorites. Now you have to open the search, and they keep moving so it’s not as quick. Go back to the old format!
Not only has this app gotten worse since they completely upgraded and changed it, you can’t plan anything because they never get the weather right. Father’s Day was suppose to be a rainy day from 1pm until the following day. Not only was our day ruined due to the hourly forecast, when it finally did rain, it was only a down pour for less than five minutes... I kind you not.
Either these forecasters are frauds or they seriously don’t know how to predict weather on an hourly or daily bases.
Just bad 1/5
By d utter 2
The radar and the hourly do not match at all time wise. Say it is going to rain, if you look at the hourly and it says it will rain at three o'clock and you then go to radar and it shows rain from noon to four, doesn't add up. I just want a weather app that actually works.
