Hard to read, runs together - hate the update 1/5
I hate the new update. It’s hard to read and tell what you’re looking at. Some things may be a bit easier, but I want the weather at a quick glance and this is not it! I won’t be using this app anymore unless the UI changes.
Awful changes — too much junk 1/5
I used to rely on this app to plan my week and days, but at this point, I think I will just delete the app. It is a waste of my time, all I want is the weather forecast (which I can’t find) and not a bunch of videos and weird stuff. Sad!
Previous layout was better 3/5
This layout is just too clunky and not as user friendly, at least to me. I have both an iPhone and Galaxy (Android) Weather Channel app and the layout of those is much better.
Terrible updates 1/5
By King Kracker Heavy Nuts
Recent updates have trashed this app. Any other weather app is far better than this one.
iPad Upgrade 1/5
Apple upgraded the weather channel on me this morning. I tried to keep the old version as long as I could. My iPhone has had the new version for a month I think so I switch on my phone to a different whether app. Now I will be switching on my iPad thank you for the upgrade. If I could give you less than a star I would.
Version 10.2 4/5
PLEASE reduce the size of your ads. I wouldn’t mind the ads if they were smaller. The big ads take up so much space!
Would love to see expanded Siri shortcuts for allergies, cold/flu reports, hurricanes, severe weather alerts, etc.
Love to see hourly cloud cover (%), wind gusts, precipitation amounts
Hurricane central improvements: storm surge layer, anticipated rainfall layer, maximum wind gusts and maximum sustained winds. This would be so helpful to know when a hurricane is approaching the United States. Out of all my suggestions this is the most important updates that should be considered.
Watch the weather channel live? That would be really convenient. Sign in with your tv provider. Fast way to stay up to date when there’s severe weather. Hope this happens in the coming months.
Radar needs improvements. It’s not very reliable. Doesn’t load all the time when you open the radar and sometimes when you zoom in or out the radar changes in intensity. That one ad underneath the radar controls is so unnecessary. It’s not a useful place to put an ad. Just get rid of it. Would love to see a warnings overlay to see all the active alerts.
I’m going to keep mentioning how badly the ads look until TWC does something about it... version 10.0 I was complaining about too many ads and that they are too big and now you decided to put ads in the newly introduced snapshot section. Things to work on:
1. Reduce ads and put it in better places
2. Shrink the enormous ads on the cards
3. Offer a one time ad removal fee instead of an annual fee.
Hate the new layout 1/5
Layout is horrible. Like the old version.
Not an improvement 2/5
By Tom Brady10
This version is much less user friendly - visually busy and distracting by comparison to the old one. If I’d known what it looked like , I would not have updated.
The Weather Channel app 3/5
By L bunt
Not as good as it use to be ,I don't think it has as much infomation
Just awful 1/5
Loved the old version and used it every day. This one makes me dizzy and frustrated. Immediately started looking for a new app. I keep wishing I could get the old app - it was great. It was accessible, clear, the graphics were readable, easy to navigate. Why make it so hard to see with white background and thin lined font? Please make the old version available!!
By Chief J Strom-Bo
After years of watching this app grow more bloated with ads and useless content, they finally made good on their brand and made a quick loading, easy to use weather app. Thank you.
Crashes often 1/5
I hate the new updated app. Many times when I open this app it crashes and closes down. Even the updates haven’t fixed the problem.
Location not updating 1/5
My current location isn’t updating! Have to delete all cities and power off to get it to work. Never had a problem in close to 10 years of iPhones!
Paid version doesn’t work 1/5
I paid for the ad free version and it locks up on startup every time. If I delete and download, ads are back and then it works. Try to restore purchase, bam, doesn’t work anymore. Good job TWC for taking the money and not following up
Don’t get 1/5
This app is terrible. I have seen this app go from predicting multiple inches of snow and freezing temperatures to nothing and mid 40s. Not only this but I have seen them call for partly cloudy, but then 6 inches of snow fell. I can’t rely on this weather app for its forecasts because they always change, and they never can keep one forecast for more then 3 hours. I’m better off not checking the forecast.
New design is terrible 1/5
This app used to be so easy to use. The 15 day forecast and the hourly was so easy to find but now it’s just a mess. Go back to the old version. I’m considering deleting this app I can’t take it anymore
Amazing weather app. However, it will not lock my alerts. I have my city saved, but it will not lock any type of my alerts I pick.
Recent update is not an improvement 1/5
New update takes forever to load. If/when it does open, it either crashes within seconds, or gives me the hourly forecast for the **previous 12 hours.** That's really handy, if you have a TIME MACHINE. Ugh. The few times it works I've seen the new layout. Can't say I'm a fan of that either. I may warm up to it eventually...if I can keep the app open for more than 2 minutes. Plus, prior to the update, I paid to have the ad-free version. Please fix it!
I want the older version back 1/5
I can’t even find my local daily weather. Used to be Open, See. Now, where is it? Oh, found by looking everywhere, again, now where was that. I want to undo this update. Can you put that in your app? I would rate this update with less than one star.
Please bring back easy to read layout & colorful graphics. 1/5
This app used to be my favorite and had been for years. The new look is painful and nearly unreadable. It is lacking in colorful visual graphics. The type is too small all around, tiny really. I’m so disappointed. In general there is less of a quick and easy to grasp view of information. It takes too long to find what I want. Put back the scrolling screen of hour by hour with larger graphics and color background please!!
Update horrible 1/5
I’ve tried to get used to the new look but it’s too busy. The white background with teeny font is hard look at. Deleting this today🤷♀️
Latest & Greatest update 3/5
I don’t see the greatness of the most recent update. I know you prepared us but I dislike it very much. I liked the previous format for weather outlook for daily.
Terrible Since Updated 1/5
Awful Update Listen to your Customers.
By keith smith 57
With the work I do I need to depend on the weather channel that I can count on and since I have downloaded Your app onto my iPhone I keep in touch with all weather thank you very much
Looks More Sterile 3/5
By wanton gaze
What happened to the beautiful backgrounds with raindrops, glowing dusks or ominous swaying trees? This new look should come with alcohol wipes it’s so sterile. No longer a pleasure to look at, i suspect the beautiful graphics detract from the new ads.
I like this app. 5/5
I love this app, however, I do not enjoy it nearly as much since they updated it and the background is white and the temps are a blah grayish tone. It used to be a nice deep blue and white letters and numbers. I wish this would be fixed! Poor design!
Had premium version for no ads, now ads with option for sub -_- 1/5
Poor taste there. Yep, there was a free ad supported version that is gone from the store, and a paid version that had always been on my devices through backups when upgrading; this is the only version and it wants you to pay to remove ads.
Just like YouTube back in the day could shut the screen off and still have the audio play, it's now part of a monthly premium version.
It's principle not the fee or ads. It's like I made the purchase and they stole it back.
Hate it 1/5
HATE THE NEW UPDATE!!
Please go back to the list type screen.. so complicated to read... the old one was so much better, easy on the eye... this is horrible! I don’t use it anymore.. it was the first app I will open in the morning.. now I avoid it at all cost!!
Hate it hate it hate it!!!
I’m so disappointed with the new app. I wish you would bring back the last version. This one is so hard to navigate and it’s very hard on the eyes. It makes me very sad because I used to live by your old app.
I gave a one star because I don’t like the update. It’s blah, no character and it’s not user friendly
Old app was better. 2/5
By bye bye weather
This updated app is so much harder to understand. The old app was so much cleaner and easier to read. I have stopped using it.
Was good.. 2/5
I wrote a favorable review when the new version came out. Hardly any ads. Now?? Unbelievable! For every
Video you click on you wait
30 seconds. No skipping. And seems I’m watching longer ads for
Shorter videos. I’m discouraged and deleting app because I don’t have spare time to sit and wait and wait..
Put it back 1/5
I really don’t use this app any longer. Slower than ever to load anything. Can’t find anything that I had and hate the commercials. Looking for a different place to look at my forecast
What happened? 1/5
This used to be my absolute favorite weather app. Now there is no dark mode, no flow...it seems like it was built like one of the very first apps ever designed. If I can’t revert to previous version I will delete.
Update Is A Bust 2/5
I have been trying to deal with the latest TWC update & it’s still coming up as a bust. My iPhone X is updated with both the latest Verizon Wireless & Apple’s software. The new improved TWC update seems to cause a delay in loading the app, whereas, it was not a problem in the past. I click on the app & it just sits there (waiting to upload the latest information). It all started when Hurricane Micheal started to get some media attention. I don’t know if the server was big enough to handle the volume of users all at once or if the new update is just that big, but the problem still exists. I have excellent WiFi, all of my other apps work just fine.
Upgrade is terrible 1/5
I never thought I would leave the weather channel app but this upgraded is awful! Go back to the old app!
New Version so Disappointing 2/5
By redesign this
Been trying to get used to the new design. Terrible. Confusing, complicated. Designed by someone who never used it previously. Seems like changes made just to say you did. Disappointing.
Still needs work 2/5
At least the font is bigger in the daily forecast. What can you do the same for the alerts. The font is so small and grayed out. Very hard to read. Also when there is a weather alert the temperature is way to small
Will you ever show wind gusts? I know you have the capability.
Still the most updated data of any weather app.
Since the last update, it takes forever to load. I would like to get the forecast before it starts raining
Last update 1/5
By net flick
The last update is not good I don’t like it at all what was wrong with the last one
What happened?! 3/5
The newer version is extremely slow even to the point of not picking up location when traveling. I’ve even tried redownloading the app to make sure I have current version. Extremely disappointed in the changes.
Hate the new app 1/5
By Wondering about the weather
Was simple and informative. Now it's prettier but much more cumbersome to get the same info as before.
All in all a downgrade.
Weather Channel Ruined this App 1/5
Where to start. Majority of the time the radar does not work. The app shows no rain, but look outside or go to Weather.com and there’s rain. The daily view is not good...hard to read as you scroll through and I shouldn’t have to scroll to see 10 days ahead. Prefer Weather.com site where it displays the 10 day forecast on one screen or easier to read format. Please fix this app.
Auto loading commercials now 1/5
After using this app for years today I find an auto loading commercial. Which is an absolute deal breaker for me. Goodbye Weather Channel. App deleted.
stop the pop up ads 1/5
The pop up ads that start up upon opening the app have got to go. I’m deleting this app that has always been my go-to for years. Bad move Weather Channel.
Why so horrible suddenly?! 1/5
I've relied on this app since the original iPhone, but the new update makes it more of a nuisance than anything. It is NOT organized in a user friendly way AT ALL, but to make matters worse, now there are movie ads popping up before you can even catch a glimpse of the temperature. Sadly I am deleting the app now. It is truly unusable now.
Done with this app 1/5
By Lindsey Pritts
The new update is awful and now they are forcing advertising videos they take up the entire screen before I can check the forecast. I’m done with this app. Deleted.
I use to love the weather channel and would have given it 5 stars, but don’t love the reimagine and would now give it a 4. The newest change starting yesterday is that you have to watch a video every time before using the app. Very annoying. Will be finding a different weather app.
The Old 4.5.1 was Way Better 1/5
Up to version 10.2 still no better than 9.10! Concur with numerous other posters...The old 4.5.1 allowed to to select airports by their three letter identifiers. It was great for those who travel a lot. You could get the weather at the airports themselves so you could see if you might have weather problems while traveling.
The new app does not recognize airport identifiers any more. Why would you remove a capability? Isn’t updating apps about keeping what’s good and making it better and not about reducing the app’s capabilities?
