Does not load. 1/5
I actually started to like this version,
Nothing but trouble for the last month.
Most the time, it doesn’t even load.
The asterisk goes round and round, then nothing happens.
Deleted app and re-downloaded 3 or 4 times.
Go back!! 1/5
Why change a good thing!? Ugh!!!
This new updated version is no longer
useful. I’ve only returned so as to leave a review. Your previous version was the best of all weather apps. That graph is awful!!!!!
Worst app ever since update 1/5
With this latest update I’ve chosen to say goodbye to TWC. Its become a terrible version of YouTube, with an interface that is just more complicated then it needs to be. Seriously, what’s with all the terrible video clips that I now have to sort through just to find out if it going to rain or snow.
What happened?!?! 1/5
I have used this app for a long time and, until now, had been relatively happy with it. The ads were annoying, but they had been something we just had to deal with. When the option to pay a small fee to remove the ads was offered, it seemed worth the price.
I could not have been more mistaken.
Since paying the money to remove the ads, the app has nearly ceased to function at all! It will open once in every 15 to 20 tries. The rest of the time, it sits on its boot up screen like it can’t figure out what to do. Worst decision I ever made was buying into this “offer”.
Don’t waste your money!
Bad move. 1/5
By wishing for old app
Absolute hate the update. Why would you totally change a good user friendly app to make a worthless complicated one that requires too much effort to just check the weather. I hope the Advertisers will review and put pressure to return to a friendly format. I will be looking for a better app.
They ruined this app! 1/5
Absolutely loved the weather channel app. Used it for many years, however this new update is confusing and not user friendly. If its not broken dont fix it. When I go to look for weather I feel like I am going though a maze now. It does not clearly show the 15 day forecast like it used to along with other things etc. I am deleting this app and trying a new one. Don’t understand why they did such a drastic change to the interface.
App shuts down on first open 1/5
Each time I open the app the first time, it freezes and closes. Then I have to open again to get the weather. I had to find a new app.
Used to be pretty good. Now doesn’t show much. Wunderground is much better.
I can not enable ANY alerts for my area. Is proving to be more worthless as days go by. Radar doesn’t seem to work anymore. Seriously considering finding something that works as it is supposed to.
Congrats on self-imploding yourselves 1/5
By Toyota 2016
Weather channel was my go to app until you decided to ruin your user experience and map/forecast functionality with your redesign. Your app is now complete garbage. If you decide to wise up and go back to what worked so well for you for years feel free to let me know. Until then good bye, I would delete the app but I want to ensure other users can read this prior to downloading. Also feel free to put yourselves back on Fios, you had some really good shows and you were the only real source for up to date weather. But perhaps your decisions makers are purposely alienating both TV and app users in an attempt to put the company out of business. Is it better to have less users or make less revenue off your users, choice is yours. Give the option for the old interface and maps and let the users decide, I don’t even mind if you have ads but give the old interface back. Does anyone at the weather channel think purple gradients are the best solution for snow/radar forecast on a topography map?
Bring back the old version! 1/5
I miss the old version- I was trying to track a potential snow in my area today at lunch and at least 3 other people agreed with me that they do not like the new version- not pleasing to the eye, too busy, don’t need so much information- miss the blue background with a single snowflake!
NEEDS WORK 2/5
This app may be “powered by Watson”, but it needs work. The old app on BOTH the iPad and Android systems was FAR better with more info and right now info that has disappeared from both systems. I don’t need videos of people sliding down their driveways to get to the mailbox. I need to know the current wind speed and what it makes the ACTUAL air feel like outside.
Stops working 1/5
I’ve removed the ads. It stops working. So it only works well when I have ads even though I paid to not have ads.
Lame update 1/5
I too loved this app until the latest update. I wouldn’t even call it an update. It runs slower than ever and will kick you out instead of refreshing. Videos are hard to upload and such a pain in the rump to try to deal with. I’m for real about to delete this crap app.so disappointing after years of loving it.
Just updated from an older version which had all blue background. OH MY have they messed this one up. Hard to read, hard to use. Used to be my favorite. Not anymore.
Where are the alerts? 3/5
By Q gal
I do generally like this app, and it seems fairly accurate. However in the last couple weeks, I’ve noticed that my location has no alerts posted even though we may be under an advisory, watch, or warning. Other locations on my list have the advisories posted, just not my home location. I HAVE TO GO TO ANOTHER WEATHER SITE TO READ THE ALERT FOR MY TOWN. What happened? I’ve gone over my settings repeatedly, uninstalled and reinstalled the app, made sure my town is checked as a favorite, but still cannot get the alerts to appear at my location, as they appear on the other locations in my saved list. It’s as if living in a small town doesn’t matter. I want the weather alerts back for my town.
Horrible update 1/5
Just deleted the app after spending weeks trying to figure it out after the update.
New format is garbage 1/5
By Blaze it bob
Change it back
By Not fond of Internet
Anyone else have problems getting the app to open since last update? I paid too. Over a month now. Still opens when it wants.
Crap weather keeps crashing! 1/5
Whenever I try to watch videos the app crashes. Can you please fix it?
I haven’t been able to read any alerts or special weather statements for several weeks now.
Could be better 3/5
I’ve always love the weather channel app and rely on it as my primary however I haven’t received push notifications for sometime since a few updates back. I wish this issue could be resolved!
App stops background music when in use 1/5
I’m sick of this sh*t hole app always shutting my music off on my iPhone every time I open the app to check the weather. It’s been doing this for over a year. It wasn’t like that years ago. I haven’t had time to write a review about this, but this needs to be fixed ASAP, this is absolutely ridiculous and I shouldn’t have to restart my music running in the background every time I want to check the weather app for an update.
By ben rhye
So I paid for the app so I wouldn’t get commercials because the app doesn’t work because it so busy loading the commercials. After I paid for - the app never recognizes it has purchased and I have to reenter so that my stupid app will works. Greed will consume us all.
Buggy app 1/5
I get more pop up phishing crap from your app and site. Hate it
What’s wrong 3/5
By good goober
My weather app does not load up frequently, I have to turn my phone off and then it will work for a while, what’s wrong
Not working half the time 3/5
Half the time I check in all I get is a blank blue page. Compared to the old app, this one hurts badly.
Shop 2312 5/5
By shop 2312
Weather reports r good but I do not like the advertisements.
Used to be great... 1/5
This app used to be awesome. It seemed to get worse with each update and we’ve now gotten to the point where I deleted it off my phone. It crashes every other time you open it, and if you go out of it after it was working it has to reload and crashes. Such a shame because the weather channel has good weather predictions that aren’t hyped up for storms the way local channels do.
doesnt load anymore 1/5
after every update the app runs slower and slower it wont even open after loading for 5 minutes ridiculous
To many advertisements 4/5
While I like the app, I hate the advertisements that keep popping up when I’m trying to see what the weather report is for the day. Kill the ads. Not interested.
Won’t show weather warnings since update 1/5
I get push notifications but when I click on them or try to open the app and see what the weather advisory is it is no where to be found and I have to look at another app to see it. I have sent 2 emails to them to see if it is a known issue or if there is a fix but have never heard back from them. This makes me very sad and frustrated. If I’m having to open another app to see what the severe weather is then I might as well be using the other app for everything. We have such bad severe weather we need to know the details of what we are about to get hit with, it’s for my families safety.
Ads with a paid subscription?? 2/5
Why? Just Why?
App locks up! 1/5
Very frustrated with this app! I rely on a weather app each day. This app was awesome a few years back, but lately has left a lot to be desired! The app stalls frequently while loading causing me to have to restart my phone to get it to load. I am at the point where I believe I will find a more reliable weather app!!!!
Once Great Now Crap 1/5
This used to be a great app. Everything was concise and clean and easy to see at a glance. Then they “upgraded” it. The look was less clean at it required much more scrolling around.
NOW THEY ADDED ADS! Sadly, once an ad pops up, which is pretty much immediately after opening the app, it freezes and you can’t even close the effing ad... it’s totally useless now.
I DELETED IT AND WILL USE A DIFFERENT AP. So sad.
Used to be my fav weather app 1/5
You guys need to fix this app just as soon as I go to video the app crashes & goes straight back to my home page on my iPhone X. I never updated the app on my iPhone8plus & it works just as it always has, flawless. So get it together & fix the app. I have already deleted it & downloaded it again hoping that the problem was resolved, but it’s still doing the same thing. Get it together!!!
By Co Skier II
Worst version I’ve seen yet. Very bad layout and graphic design.
I was waiting snow here in Beaverton city area but nothing. you idiots said the wrong thing. I loss money coz of you A$$$. My review is 0.
The older versions worked so much better !!! This is always lagging and slow as hell!!!
Badge icon blues 3/5
The most annoying thing about this app is that the badge icon number has zero indication of what it’s for inside the app itself. If you miss or don’t look for the notification then you have no clue why that red number is there. Why not add SOMETHING in the app itself that relays the same info as the notifications? I use the app regularly so it works well but this my only real gripe.
Great info but keeps crashing 2/5
The information on there is great, but some days I can’t even open the app. It just goes to the loading screen then crashes. I’ve tried restarting my phone but it still doesn’t work. It’s very frustrating, especially when I’m trying to keep an eye on the foot of snow coming my way.
It used to be good. 1/5
Very slow to load. Far less intuitive than the previous version. It should’ve been left alone.
App keeps crashing 1/5
Used to love this weather app but now each time I open it crashes or won’t open at all..
By Master Ogre
Half the time the stupid app won’t load, the other half you can’t find what you’re looking for. Weather Underground will take it’s place.
The past few times I've tried to use the radar, nothing shows up. It's just blank. It's currently raining and it's not on the radar. Guess I need to stick to "My Radar" for that option.
All Good Things Come To An End 1/5
Since around 2016 - 2017, the weather channel app has degraded to where, here in the early part of 2019, my Apple IPhone 7plus doesn’t even want to open the app. I’ve deleted the app and reloaded it and it will work for only one to two times before it quits working again. So, the weather channel is so unreliable and the foremat that was so simple and sweet, is now a thing of the past, and as the other raters say, it’s full of advertising garbage. If I wanted advertising, I’d search for it elsewhere. So sad!
Great app until recent updates 1/5
This app was the best one out as of August 2018 until they decided to completely change the formatting and make it confusing as heck . Along with that whenever there are weather advisories it no longer displays what it’s actually talking about it just is blank. Very buggy updates.
Terrible update 1/5
I use to love this app, since you changed everything it is so not user friendly anymore. I will be going to a different weather app. Sorry
The weather channel 1/5
It used to be fun looking for the weather. Then the Weather Channel decided it needed to update, as soon as they did this I said good bye. Why when you have a great app do you think it’s not good enough. It was now it’s not, sorry guys you should have left it alone.
