WCAX WEATHER - app reviews
New version terrible 1/5
Keeps getting worse with every update. More ads, more prominently placed, e.g. embedded in daily forecast, slow down entire app.. gotta have the ad data right? No more full screen radar (radar was he best feature of this app) and terribly slow initial load. Just keeps getting worse.
This was my go-to weather app but every update makes it worse and this last one rendered it useless to me. It used to be so simple. Now i can't even figure out how to find the hourly forecast. Finally, I'm one of the many folks who prefer a horizontal format. It looks like all this was done in order to clutter the page with more ads. I'm so disappointed, I'm deleting it. Useless.
Prior app worked much better 1/5
By Commercials galore
The bug keeping it from switching from portrait to landscape mode when you turn your device is BACK with the new update. What gives, you programmers? This is an EASY fix!
The new update is terrible overall. The list of faults is long:
The radar image cannot go full screen.
Distracting background photo image.
Slow to load.
Initial radar image too small.
Not intuitive in changing modes/display.
Have to click too many times to get the display one wants.
Commercial ad too large.
App title serves no purpose and occupies too much of the screen.
The original app from 2+ years ago is vastly superior.
If you want a quick radar lookup and better functionality, try MyRadar. I’ve given up on this app.
Does not adjust to landscape on iPad 1/5
So 2 more updates and you STILL HAVE NOT FIXED THIS! See title. Frustrating when you ‘update’ an app and it does not function like the previous version.
Gets worse with every “improvement” / update. 1/5
By Grn Mtn Boy
Hate the background picture, hate the smaller / condensed layout, hate the ads plastered everywhere. Please go back to the simple, non-cluttered layout. One more “improvement” like this one and this app gets dumped.
Asked for updates every time I open it 1/5
By Katie Spring
This app asks for an update every single time I open it even if I just updated it, somethings wrong.
Updated and Worse 1/5
Just updated today after days of annoying alerts to the new update. They've deleted Canada, including Newfoundland, and cities such as Marathon, NV. So, two of my 12 locations are now unavailable. I'm sure others will find more. Even worse, while I can continue to use the older, better version, I have to see 'there's an update' BS alert every time I open it up. Avoid the 'improved' crappy update at all costs.
It's so typical that So many Apps become worse with each new iteration.
