New version is Awful ! 1/5
I hate the new version ! I don’t like how it’s presented .. I don’t like the effects.. it’s difficult to follow.. I don’t like the graphs..I don’t feel like there is one bit of an improvement.. I am going to shop around for something more appealing.
👎🏻👎🏻 white background 2/5
I don’t like the white background
Please change the background color it needs a better contrast.....it will Make easier reading.
I do like the new feature Snapshot on top right.
Do not install new update. 1/5
By Bolton groupie
After newest update, the App will not load.
Your “new” look is so confusing and so not user friendly. I’m done. I used to be able to look at the weather and scan the week upcoming and know what was going to happen (even though I really didn’t know what was going to happen since your forecasts are about 5% accurate) you absolutely can’t do that anymore. The white background is impossible to read along with the teeny tiny sun/cloud icons. Every time I try to take my thumb and scroll quickly across the week it continues to take me to the detailed day-argh. You guys went the opposite direction with this update. See ya. Off to download NOAA as friends have suggested.
Change is not always good 1/5
I never write app reviews but felt I needed to after this last update. I used to love checking my weather app and planning my activities for the day or even the week but then the update came. Now I struggle to even read what the high and low is for today never mind days out. Many things in our lives are complicated, getting weather should not be. It may look pretty but it is not functional. Please simplify your design.
Terrible UI/UX redesign 1/5
As a software engineer I have to say that I get the goals of the new app but unfortunately the UX is pretty terrible. ML is the new kid on the block and I appreciate the effort but everything is very confusing on the new UI. It’s not clear if we should scroll, tap, click.. and more importantly the main weather section fades away with the amount of videos and information right below it. I don’t know if you guys A/B tested it but you should as I’m sure the variant would loose. Please make the weather the most important thing in the app once again.
Change isn’t always good. 1/5
By Vylette Rose
TWC used to be my go to weather app, not any longer. This app is no longer useful. The home screen is difficult to read, and not very intuitive. It now has a “clunky” feel as the videos and ads slow everything down. Please just give me an option to go back to the old app!!
You have made more room for adds which makes it very difficult to see the actual weather information. The print was already small, but now that you have change it to colored print on a light back ground makes it very difficult to see😞
Version 10.xx 1/5
The complete overhaul of this app has made it ugly, unpleasant to use and a bit crashy. In it's current state it has gone from regular use to no use. Checking the weather should never take but a moment, it now does.
Not a fan 1/5
Bummed out that your new UI is so clunky and challenging to navigate. If you are targeting meteorologists - perhaps this is the right way to present content. However, when looking for a quick representation of the current and 5 day forecast, I find this view complicated. Something to be said about the old KISS strategy.
I’ve chosen to spend a little money on Dark Sky - which gets me to the basic forecast without spending time deciphering the visuals. Says a lot when a user is choosing to pay for an App, versus using freeware.
Would love to know who you used as your beta group for this release. Guessing super nerd meteorologists...
Double thumbs down. No longer using your App. Other than occasionally pulling it up to see if you’ve returned to your old format. Good luck with your new targeted demographic...
Was better before update 1/5
What a slow bloated piece of crap this has become used to be my go to app for weather
Severe battery drain 1/5
By Rangers 3737
I’m updating my review after the latest update and although I think I’m one of the few who actually likes the look of the redesigned Weather Channel app, the latest version 10.1 causes severe battery drain on my iPhone now, version 10.0 worked fine but after the latest update this app kills my battery very quickly now and I’ve never had this problem while using your app in the past. This is a major issue and although I really enjoy using the Weather Channel for its accuracy, I simply cannot keep this app on my phone if it’s going to drain my battery so rapidly, please fix this issue!
SMH 🤦🏽♂️ 1/5
By Kevin aka crown me king
Y'all lie way too much for people to actually believe you folk's. Putting people through the most and wasting our time, money, the hassle, etc. Do y'all's job right for once. Stop lying and maybe you guys won't lose your audience. We're making fun of y'all. Not professional to have a bad name. I mean, it's the weather for Christ sakes! It's not that hard to do the job right! Y'all lost respect when dude made the wind seem really harsh when there were people walking like it was nothing in the background. He didn't even see them walk behind him and still acted like he was gonna get blown away 😂🤣☠️👏🏽good job, dramatic channel👍🏽
New app is horrible 1/5
Ever since the most recent update the alerts about rain/storm activity in the area is WAY off. We just had the remnants of Florence here and during a band of real heavy rain that had been going on for about an hour, I got the “light rain will begin...” in five minutes. Um, no. And it happened throughout the whole storm! We’re still in hurricane season and soon winter storms. We’re going to need the accuracy back that was one of the good things about this app once upon a time.
Old review (still stands): While it's a decent app please, we need the radar to be right there when we open it up! Right now we are in the middle of a bad storm and here I am having to scroll past videos and ads to find the radar. I have other weather apps with more accessible radar buttons shame you don't.
This is just awful! 1/5
I used this app daily but the newest update is just terrible! I rarely write reviews but this app is no longer user friendly and it’s not visually appealing. The old version was so much better and definitely easier to use. I am considering deleting this app now and using something else because I cannot easily get my weather information. I have heard many other people complaining about this update and talking about deleting the app too. Please consider changing it back.
Go back to the old version 1/5
This used to be my favorite app, however the redesign is absolutely aweful and I’m now looking for a new weather app. The information is not presented in an easy and accessible manner and the layout is very poor.
Hate the update 1/5
0 stars if possible. Thus update is horrible. I’m moving on to a new weather app and deleting weather channel.
So disappointed. 1/5
By Newer doesnt
After the last upgrade with a complete new look, this app is awful. Pretty much HATE the newer look. I don’t want the silly day graph, and the forecast for the next several days is terrible. My son and I were talking about how unappealing it is now. Moving on to some where else. So disappointed. Considered not giving it any stars.
New UI is not user friendly 1/5
I liked the 10-15 day outlook in the older version. The newer version is hard to read when having to scroll and having the hi/low temps adjacent to each other makes it even harder. Would like something like the older version. Will be looking for a new weather app
It was a good run but good bye 3/5
The 15 day was not always accurate, but it gave me an idea. This new layout is difficult to get info quickly. The weekly, kind of all blends together and is confusing.
HORRIBLE NEW UPDATE 1/5
By qjdbfbeka ckem
Opposite of user friendly. Way too busy. The old layout was absolutely perfect. Searching for another
The most recent update is a confusing mess. Used to be a brilliant app.
Weather channel 1/5
By Fan a&e
This new version is terrible. Information is not conveniently displayed. Time to find a new way to see weather.
Update is awful 2/5
Version 10 and 10.1 are awful. I absolutely hate the new format and removed the app from my home screen and will use another app for now. Bring back the week at a glance so I can see the week ahead without scrolling through all the crap until I can see the weekend forecast.
Have you stuck your head in a whirlpool? 1/5
I’m not exactly sure who your test audience was, but it certainly wasn’t people who actually use this app. The last update, reimagined according to you, is one of the worst updates ever! What is even sadder is you’re not even answering those that have complained! Have you figured out from the dozens of negative reviews that we don’t want wavy graphs, the feeling that we’re scrolling through pages of a book nor do we want to take extra steps to locate a weekly forecast. Get your self together, until then I’ll be using a different weather app.
The update is awful. This app used to be my go to place for weather information and now I want to delete it. Information is hard to find and confusing to look at, the colors are horrible and hard to read, and there seem to be far more ads and useless information than before.
Doesn’t work 1/5
Hasn’t worked for months. Doesn’t load.
Bad “upgrade” 2/5
Please do something fast to make it easier to read- fonts background - you all messed with my favorite go to app for weather, now it’s painful and less than engaging. I’m not alone on this-
Awful update 1/5
The new layout is terrible, this app is now useless to me.
Old format please! 3/5
By Kacie Adale
Can you please please go back to the prior format? This one is way harder to use. I probably have used the weather channel app more than any other app and may look for another alternative if it exists.
New design is awful 1/5
Change it back.
Recent update ruined this app 2/5
App frequently crashes after a big update to change the visual appearance. I’ll be downloading another app unless they can fix this one.
Don’t like the update 1/5
Hate the new update! Old version was much better!
Developers too proud to give users what we want 1/5
Almost every single review since the recent reimage has 1 star and uses words like Awful, Terrible, Horrible, Hate, Non-User-Friendly, Not Intuitive, Delete, etc.
Let me translate the canned developer’s response for you:
“We agree new app designs can take a few tries to get used to” = we don’t care what users think, we’re not going back to what you want, even though almost all of you hate it.
“Through testing” = we never said we tested it on humans. Our office cat likes it.
Come on, swallow your pride, catch a clue from the reviews, and go back to what we want to see. I’ve never seen such horrible customer service before. Ever. It’s so bad I took the time to write this review.
Terrible "Upgrade" 1/5
By Moab Man
I'll never understand why app developers take a perfectly good app and destroy it with their upgrades. The latest Weather Channel app is terrible. What happened to being able to see the 5 Day Forecast on a single page? Gone! Just another terrible app "upgrade".
Oh boy... 1/5
Won’t. Even. Open. Terrible update....🙄🙄🙄
Uses too much cellular data 1/5
Not sure why it uses so many gigabytes of data.
Should be the OMG channel 1/5
Pretty much the same info I get standing in line at the grocery store perusing the tabloids. Someone said it has weather info too but not sure as mine mostly just crashes.
From a 5 to a 2 2/5
Do not like the new format. Looking for a new app.
Bad, confusing update 1/5
By Beth Janine
Cannot stand (or understand!) the newest update version. This change has made it so much more difficult to quickly and accurately take a peak at the weather.
I loved this weather app so much and sorry to see it go. I’ll use another app now.
Upgrade is terrible 2/5
I hate the recent upgrade.
New update is whack. 3/5
It’s complicated and difficult to read. They should give an option to revert to original version of the app.
Color scheme 1/5
Need to be able to change the color scheme. Hard to read.
Missing the quick daily view snapshot 2/5
I can appreciate the updated look with this update, but I REALLY miss the old version. It was much easier to see the extended forecast. With the new version, it’s muddied by the inclusion of both day and night icons. I believe before, you could click on the icon to switch to the extended view of both day and night. Integration of the “story” feature could be better utilized for key information rather than the videos. Replace the videos with extended 7 or 10 day forecast and other local weather details.
I did love it... 1/5
The newest update is terrible.
Update is downgrade plus 2/5
By J Dawg Sc
Please bring back the old app. New app is major setback.😢
New Update is Awful 1/5
App was fine until the new update. Now it seems like they set themselves back 20 years. The worst!
Horrible new format 1/5
This app was only mediocre before they updated it, now its impossible to read, and still not very accurate.
New design is terrible 1/5
By K9 Barz
New design is cluttered and is not easy to use. Way too much stuff and not enough basic weather.
Never Loads. 1/5
This app seriously never loads and everything is extremely out of place on the app makes it hard to use.
