Weather info not updated timely. 1/5
App takes way too long to load up. Many times I get “network error”. Don’t like the ads.
Used to love it ... now it’s just slow and won’t load unless I have perfect service 👎🏻 1/5
Trying to reload to see if it helps.
A Good App But Needs Some Changes 3/5
The app provides timely weather information but runs patrons through the same advertising each time it is accessed.
During dangerous weather this delays access to important information while one waits 5-10 seconds viewing advertising that has already been viewed.
Doesn’t work adequately 1/5
Doesn’t give storm/tornado warnings for my area, but flood and other warning for other areas. Yes, I set it for my area in the settings. Too many ads on the app. I just want weather.
Ad Server hangs Video 1/5
Clean up your video ad server implementation. It should never hold up content presentation.
Advertisements block screen make hard to see 1/5
Removed from my iPad. Adverts block screen extremely annoying.
App has gotten slow 1/5
By Jerky 123321
Pass on this app it has gotten slow and add saturated
DO NOT DOWNLOAD 1/5
Stop sending stupid notifications. I get a bunch of nonsense notifications everyday. If it's not severe weather don't send me a notification. It's a good app but I'm only giving one star because of all the stupid notifications.
Been awhile since I left the review and I'm still getting stupid updates all day long. This app is not even accurate half the time. DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS APP
Why do you want Bluetooth on? 2/5
App doesn't load sometimes because of commercials
Not worth the install 1/5
Very annoying ads that start every time the app opens and pop up very often.
Bluetooth notification is useless 3/5
I have enjoyed this app, but frankly the updates have not improved the navigation. I think I preferred a few updates ago to any of the past few. And, this Bluetooth notification is annoying. I don't have anything to pair with it and I purposely keep Bluetooth turned off on my phone as it drains the battery. Also, the app takes makes longer to load than it ever did before. Stop improving something that didn't need improving.
Please get rid of the Bluetooth notice. 4/5
Thank you for a great app. I use it everyday and many times more than once. I love the hour by hour forecast and it's usually very accurate.
I do not use Bluetooth because I need to conserve my battery. A "do not show this again" option would be nice, or you could just show it once.
I am happy to be rid of the initial ad that delayed going right to the weather. So far, the new ads seem tolerable. I will gladly pay for no ads at all. Thank you.
Although I turn to this station on my TV for weather information, this app is worthless! Getting radar is a hit-or-miss activity; getting specific information is rarely possible. At least I have other, more reliable apps.
Not optimized for iPad 1/5
New version doesn't work correctly with iPad, must tilt iPad long way to work. I'm keeping the old version much better interface.
Ads, ads, ads, ads! The full page ad when you open the app needs to go. I want to see weather, not ads! One star because of that ad.
Good weather. Ads and voice alerts, not so good. 2/5
I understand ads in apps. This app has too many. And I really don't like the new update they released, that plays voice alerts for everything. They were fine for severe weather alerts, but for the 5 or 6 "station alerts" that come through, the voice alert gets really annoying. I will be uninstalling this app because of that. Maybe I will reinstall it later down the road to see if they've gotten rid of them, but until then I will be using another weather app.
Too many ads and not as much information as before. The ads before the videos are nearly as long as the videos themselves!
I am going to other options and hoping this new version is updated soon to be more like it was previously.
Ads ads and more ads 2/5
App is good - but too many ads.
Stop the useless notifications!!! 1/5
By Lisa Ann ms mommy
You used to only notify when bad weather is in the area. Now I get multiple useless notifications about the drought, chance of rain next week and weather forecast of the day.. stop. If I wanted local news and normal weather notifications I'd have the other apps you have. Name of the app is "storm team weather". Based on the notifications I get the name of the app should be "clear sky's and no chance of rain". Stop sending notifications if the daily forecast and random "non-storm" weather, or change the name.
This revision not an improvement 3/5
By Fay 120
I used to go to this app first thing each morning to prepare for the day. Now I just go occasionally to check and see if they restored the features I liked. in the app. I used to be able to see the forecast by the hour including chances of rain. Of course it wasn't always right, but it gave me a pretty clear picture for the day. Now I only get two or three statistics so I go to a rival App for the same information I used to get from WAFF. Hope you restore what you used to have. Until then I'll use another app and just check back with you occasionally.
How do I stop BLOG announcements? 4/5
How do I stop BLOG announcements without also stopping severe weather watches/warnings?
I asked this several months ago and I still don't see a way to do it in the app's settings.
Horrible weather app 1/5
This is a horrible weather app. Wrong more than it is right. Won't load half the time and when it does you can't trust what it says. It's raining right now and the app still says it's not going to rain. You can't make plans around the weather if you can't trust your weather app.
Storm watches/warnings are one big red blob 1/5
The storm warning/watch areas show as one big bright red blob over the map so you cannot see details of the map to understand where the storm is actually tracking. Unusable during real weather emergencies. Bad design.
It's said to be "live radar"… in the app and on the air 1/5
If "live" means periodic (to the tune of about once a minute) with a fake radar sweep being drawn in the app (and by the app) which runs way too fast and is far too long compared to the actual Doppler radar that WAFF uses, then you'll be pleased. Want to see a neat trick? Zoom out and view the United States. The sweep almost touches the gulf coast.
If you're going to mention multiple times a day and night on the air of being the only one in town with a mobile app with live radar, it better be what you say it is. Otherwise, it hurts your credibility. To Brad's credit, he's even been polite enough to mention that the data in the app may be about a minute older than actual. Nonetheless, the app continues to be mentioned as having something unique compared to the competition; however, it simply doesn't have what is being peddled everyday on the air.
Second time I've typed this due to a glitch in the review system. How fortunate for Raycom!
WAFF app is much more user friendly. Actually had to use the knowledge base for the Raycom version. Also, hate the ad at the opening of the Raycom version which I'll be deleting!
Only one review showing for the Raycom version is a joke. Don't think we haven't noticed! Months ago there were three, then three more, then three more. Deleting reviews is deceptive, especially since the ones we saw were negative.
I'm staying with Brad and team but not the Raycom app!!
TO MANY ADS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 2/5
Tired of watching ads! I downloaded it for news, weather and sports but get bombarded by ads. I understand that ads pay for the app but they went overboard.
Too many ads 1/5
Every time you run this app or leave and come back there's a stupid, slow ad.
AD upon open 1/5
By Linda Lay
Full page ad upon opening app caused me to remove it. Not cool.
NOT an improvement! 1/5
Go back to the previous graphics for the daily forecast. This new version is harder to read.
Not a good start 2/5
Buggy app. Severe video and Live video get unknown errors most of the time. Stopping and restarting the app doesn't help.
Full page ad with delay ruined it 1/5
I used to use this daily. But since you put up the full page ad on the opening screen AND you can’t skip it until it’s been up for a few seconds, I’m leaving this app behind. I’ve also found that the radar images don’t match the website radar images. By the way…to the advertiser…You lost me as a customer too.
Fix the ad! 3/5
If you're going to make us look at the ad, at least center it. This really affects the OCD in me. I'm sure it's optimized for the iPhone 6 but guess what? Not everyone has the 6!
Love the full page ad on start up! 1/5
Download saw the full page ad on start up. Delete.
This weather app used to very user friendly now it's just disorganized and add based I am so sick of the same advertiser that I wouldn't use them, shame on you waff48 its national weather service for me
I don't like this update :-( 1/5
This is terrible! If I wanted an ad I would've placed one myself. I depended on your app for the correct weather. All this other junk needs to go! And if I had my voice you wouldn't get a star at all.
Not the same 1/5
They have changed this app and it's nothing like the old version and now they have huge ads soon as you open the app. Do Not like! Deleting and getting the weather channel!!!
Go Back! 3/5
This version is awful. The ads are annoying and the new layout is very difficult to navigate. WHNT's new weather app is much better.
Good update 3/5
I like the modern look. Much easier to use. However I hate the ad that pops up, that wastes 5 seconds of my time every time I want to check the weather. Get rid of that and it would be 5 stars.
I like the update 5/5
The update adds a new interface that, to me, is more visually appealing. It has a nice modern look to it. There is an ad that pops up when you open the app, but clicking the screen instantly gets rid of it. I haven't noticed any crashing like the other reviewers have. It runs just fine for me. I had a moment of amazement when I saw a bolt of lightning in the distance, this app popped up a notification that there was lighting detected XX miles from me, then after a second I heard the thunder boom. It really shows how amazingly advanced our weather detection systems are becoming.
Too Many Ads 1/5
App started out fine, sort of liked the change. But now every time I open the app the first thing I see is a full screen ad for Joe East Heating. Don't want or need that. Will be deleting this app and stick with The Weather Channel or James Spann.
Don't like latest update 3/5
Overall a good app. Used to be better. Crashes too often and less visually appealing. Also don't like the add upon opening app. Very glitchy and a lot less reliable than older version. Please improve because it's been very reliable in the past. Thanks
Disappointing Update 2/5
By Rocket City Weather
Recent update to this app hits you with a full-page ad on start up. Updated app is also less visually appealing and not as usable. However, the radar picture is quite good. If not for the radar page I would pass on this app.
Used to be better 1/5
By Don't collect my data!
I dislike the newest version. This used to be my go-to weather app. Now it's annoying. Old one was simple to use with straightforward interface and ads either at the top or bottom.
The newer version does the same thing with a "prettier" interface that doesn't add anything useful and slows navigation. Furthermore, it opens with a full splash screen ad that hangs for five seconds before clearing away. It adds the load time each and every time by that much. It's annoying and I see myself switching to something else soon.
Great for weather, but 3/5
HATE that full page ad on startup!! Small banner at the bottom if ad is necessary!
Love the app "BUT" 4/5
By It's me Froggi
I opened the app to find it was updated, looks good, was checking out the new features. Opened the tab marked headlines, and it shuts the app down after about 20 seconds trying to open. But other than that it's a good update. Thanks!
Latest update, Awesome 4/5
Thanks for all the improvements.
I'd give it 5 stars if you'd get rid of the annoying ads.
Good but 3/5
This app is good for the forecast and giving you the updates on warnings and watches but it crashes multiple times while it loads the radar, temps, alerts, etc. please fix the crash problems and this app would be a 5/5!
I loaded the new WAFF weather app on my new iPhone 6. Every time I open it by the time I look , it just disappears off of the screen. Is this software up-to-date ?
Great Weather App 5/5
This is a great product no matter what city you live in.
Good app 4/5
It's a really good app, but the radar won't work. When I click play on it and the storm and/or rain disappears and won't play or even show up! Other than that it's a good app. It's good for if you live in the Tennessee Valley. 😋
