Screen freeze 2/5
I am on a daily basis having to shut my phone down and then restart it in order for this app to show the weather. I have no problem with any other apps I have but this one. When I go to open, the screen is ‘frozen’ on a blank blue screen. Very frustrating.
From tolerable to worthless 1/5
The title says it all. Now it’s nothing more than ads with a little weather sprinkled in for flavor
Liberal Agendas 2/5
The weather app works good and provides a good prediction of weather. I just got so tired of the in-your-face Liberal “Global Warming” agenda. Went to an app where I can just get a good weather forecast.
Now you want me to pay? 1/5
Not quite sure I would depend on this app to keep up with the weather. You would probably have better luck opening the door and looking outside than trusting this app. And now they want you to pay for extra hours of incorrect information. No ma’am.
Deleting app 1/5
I’m deleting this app and reviewing it for the first time. I shut off notifications and yet somehow the app continues to insist on alerting me 12 times every time it’s going to rain. Thanks but I’ll just look out the window.
They keep making it worse! 1/5
By Tech Guy 201
It’s as closet to a pile of s**t as you can get without adding flies. DELETED!
Radar never works since last update 1/5
The last few updates have made the app fairly useless. Time for a new weather app.
Weather channel 5/5
Great app very informative and easy to access all weather info.
What are you doing? 1/5
This used to be a wonderful app. Now it is hands down one of the worst out there. There is absolutely no reason to complicate this app the way you have. I'm finally done with it. Thanks for ruining a good thing.
Artificial Intelligence Overload 2/5
By NE Florida
Checking out of the WC tonight after 15+ years / too much drama, too many hypes, too many radar embellishments. Not to mention too many ads. Will go instead to local weather and hurricane center. Good luck.
While I enjoy the info provided I dislike all the ads but I don’t want to pay to have them removed!
7/20/19: iPhone IOS 12.3.1....
This is crazy! Whomever data enters the information doesn't check it or separate people input the data and there's no quality control!!
The hourly temps and rain chance differ between the tab at the top of the page and the bottom of the page! Complete inconsistency! The format change isn't as good as it was either...
I'll remove it and use another app.

This weather app is very active for me to start my day love it
One star 1/5
By Demolition derby
Thought I just clicked on the premium ap for $9.99 for one year. Thought I was getting rid of all the annoying ads... if not, I want my money back.
The weather 1/5
By Pand w
The radar does not work it need to be fix
Far too many notifications 1/5
This app loves to send notifications for frivolous weather events. It likes to cloud a remote chance of weather by claiming intermittent rain so it has an excuse to sometimes send notifications every 5 minutes. Much of the time the weather it professes will happen doesn’t occur or is so short it is barley noticeable. The notification settings are vague and don’t give you much ability to control the rate of notifications just the type of notifications. I have had times where I open the app to clear a notification just to have it send another one within minutes of leaving the app. It is insane and for a weather app. At least put it a setting to o my allow notifications say once an hour.
New update is a waste 1/5
Takes FOREVER for the radar to come up with the latest update. Same on two different iPads and phone.
Getting Worse with Each Release 2/5
By Twitter Review
This ad ridden app used to be better but has been going downhill for a while now. Poor use of screen real estate and oversized ads, ads and more ads. Need to reboot the App every few times as it locks up and then eventually kicks you out of the app altogether.
I never click on any ads out of principle and the subscription option might seem trendy, but this is the weather. The standard weather app nearly does everything I need with the exception of wind speed. If they add that, I can delete this piece of [email protected]
How Do I Unsubscribe? 3/5
The app does not show up under my App Store subscriptions, but the app itself says I am subscribed through September. I do not see how to cancel it and avoid an automatic renewal.
As for the app itself: I wanted something without so many videos and other distractions. TWC is usually the most accurate (besides Weather Underground), but I really hate the extra stuff.
Update will not load 1/5
Don’t know what is wrong.
Will not update.
So cool 😎😎😎 4/5
No more 1/5
By dummie phone
I have used this app for a few years now. Some versions good some not so good. But it now looks like weather underground, I will keep the older version on my iPad until I have to change. Now to find something to replace this on my iPhone.
MY BAD I forgot and updated this on my iPad. I hate it. Everything you say works smother, better, faster, for me is slower, hard to find, confusing .
Now that I have made this mistake I have to find another weather app.
There should be a way to delete an update.
Crashing constantly after last update 3/5
By Claudia's review
Please fix it. I never had issues before and now it shuts down seconds after I open it.
I like it 2/5
Don’t like that I have to pay for more days worth of estimated weather. Wish it would sound an alert for bad weather despite the low sound on my phone volume. Like an alert independent from the phone settings so that when a tornado is coming it’ll tell us regardless of volume on our phones. A true emergency alert like it used to do.
Truck driver 5/5
This is the only app I trust WEATHER I’m out on the road working or at home. Always on point! Thank you, The Weather Channel
Take ads at bottom off 3/5
Take the ads off they are irritating and easy to install by mistake.
Works great 5/5
Bad update. App is crashing, slow, laggy when scrolling through cards, favorite/saved locations keep deleting on their own.
App is getting much worse again. Back to one star until all this gets fixed. App is really unusable at this time.
Notification Alerts Gone Bad 1/5
The constant shower of false weather alerts is becoming very frustrating. Weather alerting is not accurate and creates a false sense of security with forecasts. The only solution to stop this madness is to turn off notifications. Bring back a much simpler APP without all the “bloat” that is causing these constant problems.
Weather forecasts also seem to be more inaccurate with each upgrade. As I’m writing this, forecast AND shows sun with 5% chance of precipitation. It’s been raining for over an hour but radar doesn’t show anything. Not a reliable app...
Keeps crashing 2/5
The app has started crashing each time I open it. This is not something that has happened very often in the past. And can no longer re-order the cities in my favorites. That’s annoying too
It’s great and free love it
Bloated and sketchy ads 1/5
The app has become so bloated that it freezes up constantly. So populated by ads that I frequently accidentally hit one, launching into a video or out of the app.
Plus the ads are beyond sketchy. Fake health remedies. Clickbait. Fake partisan news (like we need more of that creeping into our everyday activities). For something as basic as weather info I shouldn’t have to look at images spreading fake, hateful news.
Will find another app.
Just awful app all around. Streamline and drop the sketchy crappy ads. There are decent ads out there.
I would like to see humidity % and real feel temperatures. I use an older iPad in my shop that gives that information. My newer iPad I use in the house does not show that information. Maybe there is an upgrade in the App Store. Other than that all is good.
Poor user interface, does not make use of the iPads ample screen real estate.
Decent App, getting BLOATED and LOADS as SLOW AS MOLASSES 3/5
By GTD Meister
As apps go, this one takes an ETERNITY to load, so it’s no longer my go-to to check weather.
Also, cool it on the BLOAT ... that’s probably why it can’t load quicker.
Feels Heavy 1/5
This app gets worse and worse, sooo many ads, videos and news I don’t care about. You can’t turn them off to customize the app to your settings. It constantly crashes or can not locate any weather info half the time. Radar never works you have to keep zooming in and out to see where a cloud is if it can load properly. I would rather use the weather app but now I’m switching for connivence and power.
Love It Love it Love it 5/5
Purchases to remove ads not being honored 1/5
A few years ago I paid to remove the ads from the weather channel app on my iPhone. After this latest update ads have returned to my app and when I try to restore purchases it says there are no purchases to restore.
Now I notice that to remove ads you need to pay monthly? Are you serious, you took away the purchase I made to remove ads to try to sell me a subscription service to do what I already paid for, that again, you removed?
When I bought the removal of ads so many years ago I was not informed of any length of time. I’m not going to pay you again let alone on a subscription model for a service I’ve already paid for. Return my lifetime purchase of the removal of ads from my app or this is getting uninstalled so very quickly.
Be nice if the radar (a necessity in weather) worked 1/5
Radar for any location I have saved has not worked for the last two versions. Fix it please.
Thumb down for the new update 1/5
I really hate the new version of this app. It turns a simple and quick weather reference app to a bad puzzle game! Most of us using the app are not meteorological professional. We just simply want to know the “weather “!
Good but could be better 1/5
10.15 - Still no improvement and now cannot reorder saved locations...another step backward. You need new developers and an end user focus group to beta test!
Well I didn’t think you could make it worse....and then you did! 10.0 is terrible - try a beta version with non-tech people as the focus group!
Too much useless data, videos, & ads 1/5
This used to be my go to weather app, barely use it anymore, mostly for the radar. It used to have a simple, clean page where the current temp, dewpoint,& forecast were front & center & easy to find. Now, WAY too much data information I have to scroll through. I now use the AccuWeather app, much cleaner homepage, easier to find the basic info I’m looking for.

I live that I can see the wind speed before taking my paddle board out.
App lacks controls to narrow your location 3/5
I live north of Tampa, FL in Wesley Chapel, a good 40 minute to an hour drive. But the app locator puts it in Tampa. So weather alerts I get are not for me. When I try and report an incorrect location in the app it automatically put my complaint in an email but doesn’t provide an email address. Very frustrating as I don’t care to receive alerts that aren’t applicable to me and my location. For now, I am removing this app.
The new update 1/5
The temp is wrong since the new update.
Premium at a Recurring Price? No Thank You. 2/5

Original format better! 1/5
By Unhappy 68
Current update not user friendly! Much preferred older version. Now have to go to many pages to get same info that used to be on one.
The weather app 4/5
By Kayla Zizzo
This app is wonderful! When there was severe thunderstorms in my area it was a big help.
I love how it updates almost every minute. Also i love how everything has so much detail. Lastly, i love how it has location to show the weather were you are and weather warnings right in your city with redact! The regular app for weather that apple has when you buy your phone wasn’t as accurate as this and detailed. That’s why i love it.
There’s some things to improve. I wish you could change your location without having to be in that place. That would be great. Especially to check some where before you go on vacation for accurate weather. One last thing to improve is more accurate with lightning strikes. It told me certain times there was going to be thunder at night which scared me. I was worried all night waking up
every hour to find out in the morning there was no thunder! That was the only inaccurate that needs to fixed immediately! That’s mostly why i didn’t give 5 stars.
But overall i love this app so my it’s great!
Constant crashes 1/5
By Weather consu ef
Was slow and clunky. Now it just crashes. Come on guys...fix this loser of an app.
The weather channel 5/5
It is good but the alerts are annoying and that and once it says it doesn’t even happen so it’s stupid that they even do the alerts
