AWESOME APP THANK YOU 5/5
Alright I had a app before this it was 🤢 bad!! But as soon as I was told about this app I downloaded it. IT TOTALLY CHANGED MY LIFE. Thank you. There are a few lags you could fix but for the most part I love ❤️ it thanks.
Used to be a good app 1/5
By cartoon ds1976
This app used to have usable information in it at one point. But that is now sadly in the past. When you don’t even have the same information as they provide for the default Apple weather app there is a problem that should be addressed, but won’t in my experience. I have deleted this “app” for greener pastures in this App Store.
What sup!? 3/5
Used to love the vids on this app! No on going weather vids anymore. No Ari Effect...whaaaaa!?!?! Hardly any new stuff... BORING!!!
Bring back the old version 1/5
Sorry, but this new app is horrible! It’s constantly crashing, the radar is awful, and half the time it doesn’t load. Will be switching to something else.
Too Political 2/5
By Ramah Transplant
I used to like this app a lot, but the videos have become too political and one sided. Super disappointed in the direction this has gone. I also disliked the change with how you add locations.
Too much liberal nonsense 1/5
I give up. Switching to Weatherbug. They not only inject fake global warming “news”, like 300 “scientists blast trump on it. And they recently they have a video showing how (Trump’s) EPA is helping polluters. Also how (Trump’s) government still hasn’t gotten power to half a million people in PR.
Polar bears are thriving. They do almost all their hunting in the ocean; not on the ice. They can easily swim 100 miles or more. Scientists used GPS to prove they can swim over 400 miles at a time. Their food source is in the water. They would starve on the ice. So taking a picture of a forlorn polar bear standing on a small section of ice is misleading.
Propaganda Machine 1/5
By D lewcious
If you like to be inundated with pseudo science and other liberal propaganda, with a side of typical, marginally accurate weather, then this app’s for you.
Bye bye 1/5
Doesn’t work so many times lately. I have had this app for a long time but I am getting rid of it. It’s just changed too much and not for the good. I am also so sick of fake news and sensationalized stories when all I want to do is see the weather.
App used to work fine but now it doesn’t 3/5
App loads very slowly and sometimes it won’t load the weather at all. It acts like it’s stuck from hours ago. The radar is also a hit or miss. Sometimes it will pull right up and load along with the future prediction but most of the time it shows the roads and city but will not load the rain/snow, whatever is coming.
Was good. Now it’s just another political app. 1/5
This app is for weather. Stop posting political bull crap. Thanks.
Having issues...Not happy 2/5
I’ve been having issues since this last update. When I go to the app, it frequently freezes and there is often a delay while it refreshes and loads the current temp and conditions. This is really annoying and was never a problem previously. I also don’t like that I now can no longer switch between locations just by sliding the screen back and forth. Now I have to go into the locations in the upper right corner and choose which location and then wait for that to load. Not good. All these “updates” get tiresome, especially when they don’t work properly and/or change what was fine and what I liked better before.
Crash! Crash! Crash! 1/5
iOS version CONSTANTLY CRASHES! Fine for one moment then goes to blue screen the next! #worthless
It will kill your data 1/5
This app consumed 2GB of data in ONE DAY! It’s insane that’s even possible. I had to delete this app because of it.
Used to be great 1/5
By Son of a Batch(literally)
In all seriousness, this app is excellent minus a major issue. It’s WAY SLOW because of all the ads they clutter it with. My music stops because of this too. All for a simple weather check.
Come to find out, the weather app from Apple used The Weather Channel and is supremely faster. Deuces
Weather takes too long to load! Especially just today’s forecast! It’s not a large amount of data.
I really like the layout and forecasts of this app but I keep getting “couldn’t update your forecast, check your internet connection” messages when using data or WiFi. Frustrating!
Hate the update 1/5
Used to be good. Now it is very , very bad. I am deleting it now
Terrible app. Buggy, slow 1/5
By Marky S.
The radar is comical for this app. Never works right. The app is slow, buggy, and rarely works right. Often crashes too.
App is good but... sometimes 🤔 3/5
I prefer this app over the Weather app on the phone. It offers plenty of info with hourly, day and week. My only beef with it is that whenever I open the app I end up getting alerts for whatever city I have saved or happen to be in. That’s great if I actually enabled those alerts. So, now I constantly have to go to the settings and disable all Alerts. Everyday. Not cool.
App used to be great... 1/5
By Running and Biking
This app used to be the best weather app and now it crashes constantly. I can't even open it anymore and I've tried everything. Please fix the crashes and I'll give it 5 stars!
By M Davis5187!
Can you add a road condition for motorcycle riders? Possibly add the option under the health and activity
Works well, but disjointed notification/feedback 4/5
The basics work well, but when the app icon shows a notification, 2/3 times when I open the app (note: days may have passed before I actually open the app), there is no notification. This makes it seem like I’m being baited to open the app so it can display ads, but I’ll reserve judgement on that. If the notification is no longer relevant and removed, so should the app icon decrement the notification count.
When I went to report this, I found that Feedback allows no feedback, only displays FAQ. Having given up, later I stumbled upon I think the app description that feedback should be emailed. Why isn’t that on the feedback page where Feedback sent me?
Not wanting to play Whack-a-Mole anymore, decided to post here instead.
Try "Weather Channel Essentials" 1/5
I was unhappy with the upgrade, but it looks like there is another Weather Channel app called "Weather Channel Essentials" and it has the large / simple graphics I love.
Beyond frustrating 1/5
I used to love this app, it was always my go to...NOT ANYMORE, it takes forever to load, the glitches and freezing are annoying. The radar takes forever to load. PLEASE FIX THIS WHOLE APP!!!
So much noise 1/5
By Salt Lake City Dub
If I pay for an app I don't want it covered with what looks like paid content. It's full of nonsense and totally irrelevant sections that can't be removed or even moved to th bottom of the screen. Awful.
Only accurate a few hours ahead. Smh 3/5
I use this app all the time because we run a go kart track. It comes in very handy. Accept for when it calls for storms in the am and we decide to stay closed for it. Then it doesn’t storm. Then when we open in the evening it starts storming. I know this isn’t the apps fault but it’s still inaccurate. It’s only accurate maybe 4 hours ahead. Like right now. 11:44am on Sunday. It’s suppose to be mad storming. Well. It’s not. It’s sunny as can be. What gives Florida weather guys. 🙄.
Having issues 2/5
My app sometimes takes DAYS to update the weather. It’s currently 9:20a Sunday and still has Saturday’s weather posted. Doesn’t change after restarting the app or my phone.
Won't update 1/5
Won't update even though I have the required operating system. The version I have is glitchy.
Older version v.s. Newer one 2/5
By no nixkname works
As far as I am concerned, the older app is superior to this new one. It is more user friendly and is less cluttered. I can find out the information that I want with less distraction.
STOP the Annoying Doom Gloom Propaganda! 3/5
By Therapeutic Intentions
One of my favorite things to do every morning is grab my phone and watch the videos on the weather Channel. However more and more lately you find it necessary to spread doom and gloom about our planet or weather changes, etc. If this continues I will delete this app.
By Blaze Burkenstock
App won’t load. Just a blue screen.
New update 1/5
Update not compatible with my iPhone. Grrrr
Ok so I’ve loaded the latest update and now the app freezes. Close the app and reload and it’s still stuck in the same place that it locked up moments before.
I posted and got an instant “developer response”. Weird, cuz the response is dated June 29. Um, it’s April so I have no idea where that “response” came from.
By Ruthie Q
This sounds immature but the beige picture introducing the app is down right boring and ugly. The app itself is hard to get used too. Senior citizens are sometimes creatures of habit, I guess. I prefer the old app. It was easier to use and it gave me the info I wanted. I don’t really need all the other features.
Disturbingly fanatical agenda and videos 1/5
By Bug 8503
Loved this app until all of the videos started really getting fanatical about politics, climate change, earth doomsday stuff. Just browse through their videos and you’ll find them constantly telling us that the end of the earth is pretty much upon us. Used to love this app and have used it since the iPhone 4S, but finally just getting weary of the cheesy hype and deleting the app and going with Weather Underground.
Okay Map 4/5
By James Manzano
The map, when zoomed out a certain amount, gets rid of the rain in just a certain area. There is still rain there because if you zoom out, or in more, it appears again; but there is a sort of dead spot in the magnification.
Half of the videos don’t have anything to do with weather, so that is something TWC can focus on to improve.
Forecasts are wildly inaccurate 1/5
It’s not that the app is so bad, it’s just that the Weather Channel is more geared towards selling adds than forecasting weather. Typical was this morning, where the app indicated 5%-15% chance of rain, and the radar showed the only rain showers were 50 miles away over the past two hours. I put on all of my riding gear, rolled my motorcycle outside, and found that it a rain shower was blowing through. A check of another weather source showed 52% chance of rain, and their radar showed rain showers all around over the past hour. This kind of thing happens all of the time.
Constantly Self Sponsoring with Pointless Videos 1/5
I would like this application to only have the weather, however it continues to show weather channel sponsored video options. I purchased this app to remove ads. Then I turned off video auto play, and that was not enough. The weather channel has become a false weather entity, it has fallen behind the times due to advancements in technology that fundamentally ruin its purpose, and instead of sticking to their guns and showing the weather and the weather only, they constantly try to bombard their customers with pointless videos about things I personally do not care to watch. I suggest removing the videos and letting me have just the weather information.
Good luck logging in 1/5
I originally logged in through the app and after an update it repeatedly provided errors when logging in our trying to reset my password. Done with it.
Inappropriate repetitive ads 1/5
By Jalapeno Rojo
Constant inappropriate repetitive click bait ads. When reported the same one keeps appearing.
Don’t like the videos 2/5
I don’t review many apps but I wanted to review The Weather Channel because of an issue I have with it. I get on several times a week and I do not appreciate the dead animal videos that are on the app almost every time I open it. I’m tempted to delete the app because of this.
By 313 421 175
If you love your weather with a healthy dose of overdramatic click bait then you came to the right place. For example, a 20% chance of rain will be referred to as possible deadly death showers from above. A lightning storm, be prepared for hell fire brought down from with total and absolute destruction possible. Whenever you check the weather on this app, it will very clearly outline all of the different ways you could die. It’s helpful for those folks who live by themselves in a shack in the woods and like to wear aluminum foil hats. For normal people who just want the weather, there are much better apps out there.
Riddled with advertisements 1/5
By Way 2 rob me!
This would be a great app if not for the constant advertisements going on all over the app. You gotta watch a 35 second commercial before you can watch a 20 second video. Not worth it! This app is garbage.
Millennial Edition 3/5
By Rick from Sunshine Way
Kids love stuff that’s ugly and over complicated. This app is perfect for them. How about giving me the basics at a glance rather than make me scroll and click every time. Glad you haven’t gotten rid of your old app... yet.
Location, alerts, and Login Issues 2/5
I’m currently unable to set alerts due to my location settings. Even though I’ve given full/always location permissions. It will not save the alerts unless I choose a location. This is the only reason I need your app, and I will discontinue using it until this problem is fixed.
I can’t login with Facebook. It logs in on the Facebook side, and grants access, but I get an error as soon as I come back into the weather app.
I will update my rating once these issues are addressed.
Not enough info 4/5
By Old Norm
Don’t just show the barometric pressure, show whether it is rising or falling.
This app seems to work pretty well for the most part but the widget needs some work. Most times it doesn’t even show the current temperature and I’d like to see the weather for the next few hours under the “Show More” in the widget, rather than a video of an area that isn’t related to my location.
Weather’s weather wherever, but- 4/5
Now this app stops my music every single freaking time I open it, and that’s reason enough to stop using it. The weather forecast is pretty much the same wherever it comes from. Give us an audio fix and all would be perfect!
By Audrie Rathman
I love this app and especially the interesting videos, until a weather-girl goes off all liberal and hateful. Remember 50% of the country is conservative!
Loyal customer no longer 1/5
I have had this this app for years. I originally purchased the ad free version. When they eliminated this version, they gave me one year ad free. I purchased the ad free option for $3.99 after my one year expired. They have my money, but I still have the ads. I have written multiple times but received no response.
