Does not work. Can be pouring & it shows nothing near me on radar. Or it will show alerts when nothing is happening
Not sure about the negative reviews. I live in central Florida and I’m outdoors a lot. I rely on the lighting and rain alerts. On iOS, this app has never disappointed. Keep up the great work.
A widget would be great by the way!
Doesn’t work 1/5
I had the old version and it worked great, but ever since they did the update, it doesn’t work. It stays on the opening page- the picture of Tom Terry. I’ll change my review once it works again.

The radar does not work it’s poring rain outside right now and the radar shows nothing in my area. And I agree with BUGS every time I turn on it tells me can’t connect turn on my wifi on turn off airplane mode. Bring back the old version.
This app use to be very good and bang on with its alerts but I downloaded the new updated version and the storms that we have had don’t seem to show up at that time of event. ? Maybe have another look at this app and try to fix it. Please iv always followed you guys as trust you.
By Trader gator
Doesn’t seem the new version of this app was tested enough. Today getting message it can’t connect to my WiFi but all other apps including App Store sure can. I’m going to delete it and download again but new app is not nearly as nice as old one so will be looking for a better one.
UPDATE- delete and reinstall worked for awhile but app is unusable again today. Deleting for good. Terrible.
Not compatible with my iPad. Now what do I do. I have direct tv & every time it rains I loose the tv, so I rely on my iPad especially now that hurricane season is coming.
Does not work away from WiFi 1/5
The old App was better it work everywhere this new app doesn’t work out side
Having same experience as others. App for iPad is freezing and won’t go any farther. While Tom Terry is handsome, I would eventually like to see the weather. I’ll try deleting and reloading app. Did like the old version just fine.
Same problem on iPhone — freezes on first screen.
Update - deleted app and reinstalled on both iPad and iPhone and it now seems to be working.
Hangs constantly 2/5
By Jim Joslin
App hangs since the latest update.
Update tells me it is not compatible with this device. I'm using an iPad... why is this not compatible with an iPad?
Prefer the other app 4/5
I’m from Louisiana and downloaded your app (the old app) years ago by mistake thinking it was channel 9 in Baton Rouge. I ended up liking it better than our own local weather apps. I used it literally every day, so naturally, I’d rather not have it changed. But I get it, advertisements mean money. They are just annoying because now I have pop ups to deal with. I had two of them take over while trying to figure out how to navigate the new app. I can’t give this a one star because of loyalty to the old app.... and I’m hoping I get used to this new one with time:)
You just got dumped. I am not interested in watching an ad to get the weather when there are so many free apps.
Definitely not an improvement for us users.
Hate the update 1/5
I used to love this app but the new update is terrible. Very confusing and unorganized.
Weather App 1/5
App worked a couple times, but now does not connect. I keep getting a system error. Deleted app and reinstalled it and same thing happened. Worked a couple times and then same error message. I give up.
Terrible update 2/5
I liked the old format. Got the info needed and it worked. New format is awkward and requires more steps to get less information AND it freezes up. I deleted the old app this morning and will download again. If it doesn’t work I’ll delete it permanently. Not happy
It takes too long to find the weather The ads are distracting If I wanted to watch the weather report I’d turn on the tv I want the information without having to search for it
I’ve been silently and patiently waiting for a refresh of the app considering I use it everyday. Absolutely gorgeous new look! Thanks WFTV!
P.s. tell Tom I said what’s up!
WFTV weather app 5/5
I don’t like the change at all. The video won’t stop and I don’t want to hear it. It removed all my cities - it’s ridiculous how you get to radar. Put it back the way it was.
Horrible update 1/5
By Confused of outwell
I just went to look for tomorrow’s weather and found that the app I was used to and found to be really easy to use and informative has changed beyond all recognition. It’s the wrong way round and asked me a whole bunch of annoying questions to begin with which no doubt have changed the way I got the weather warnings I need. Finally I get to video which I don’t want and confusion. You just lost me.
Weather app by channel 9 1/5
By crash crowe
The old system was much easier to follow. It just doesn’t jump out at you and give you the info you need. I really dislike it and gave a 1 star rating.
No app 1/5
When I open app nothing is there
Do not like the changes 2/5
By To The Beach
This app is not nearly as good as the old one. Needs a lot of work.
Won’t load 1/5
So the update...it’s not working as designed, unless it’s supposed to just sit on the landing page?! Did we test it before releasing this update?
New weather 1/5
By old bobo
Please go back to the way it was before. This just not going to cut it for me.
Not loading 1/5
It ask if I want my location and notifications turned on and that’s it Just stops at the loading screen
Pin point way off. 1/5
I’ve tried to save my home location and the pin point is way off. Every time I try to move the pin it only moves once and I can’t move it again. Every time I touch it it disappears and goes back to the original location. It’s very frustrating that I can’t pinpoint a location for accurate weather notifications such as lightening warnings. Please fix.
Lacks Updated Content 1/5
The newest 5 day forecast video is a week old! This is a regular occurrence.
Useful and easy. Thank you guys.
Cut to the chase! 2/5
This app is not useful during a hurricane. The information is so disorganized it's extremely frustrating and I only want wftv because Tom Terry is the hurricane guru. Stream line it people.
Not useful during hurricane Irene 1/5
Layout is poor and not useful
The ads interfere with everything, hate it!
Gone down hill in the hourly 2/5
The hourly tab has greater selectivity as far as geographical areas but the information displayed for an area is practically useless.
Shuts down! 1/5
App shuts down as soon as it opens, deleted it reinstalled and same result.
It's a sales flyer, not a weather app 1/5
Like the other apps from WFTV, they used to be of value. Then they started embedding ads everywhere. App loading is ridiculously slow due to all the ads. Try selecting an action in the app and it loads even more ads, almost like reading a Sunday paper advertisement flyer. Easier, faster and more accurate to use the national weather service, the national hurricane center and a weather radio. Those folks realize disseminating information is more important than generating revenue; WFTV only cares about profits.
Love channel 9 and the weather crew staff.
But this app I don't like. Found it hard to navigate. The last straw for me was when I was checking it for the tropical depression Invest 99 heading our way. There was no update information. The video I watched was from Wednesday, today is Sunday.
If I was looking in error, that would account for the navigation confusion of the app.
I have deleted it.
I like this weather app, but not the alert system. I thought it was supposed to send alerts for my area. I only receive alerts for Orlando, which I don't need. I have my home as the default location. I would rate it higher if it wasn't for that.
Locks up my phone 1/5
By CT Great
The app used to work but now when I look at the radar my phone locks up. I must do a hard reset to get phone to work again. Old version worked great this version has problems on my iPhone.
Fix me! 2/5
The app runs ok but leaves my gps on all the time and kills my battery.
Terrible app 1/5
This weather app is totally worthless, I deleted it. Not worth your time.
Not fond of update 3/5
New update seems to work ok so far, but I am not liking the interface so much and seems cluttered now. Also what happened to the hourly forecast?!!! I used that as much as the radar and now it's gone. I will be using the weather channel app more than this due to them having hourly forecast and a more current radar. Yalls is 10 minutes behind real time.
Please fix this app 3/5
This app has possibilities to be a good app but it needs some fixing. It freezes in the middle of the live stream, which it did not do in the past. One time I tried it and it would not go to the live stream during the time it should work. I had to go out and come back in for it to work. But, by the time you go out and come back in, weather is usually over. I am thinking of changing apps if it does not get fixed.
Latest update is terrible 1/5
By Suz in Otown
Info doesn't fit properly on my screen ( ipad2) in either landscape or picture frame mode. Whoever does your apps seems to have no QA department. I will be deleting if not fixed soon.
Forecast only shows the next few minutes. Not much of a forecast.
9 weather 5/5
First station to send warning to my phone. I like that. Warnings are accurate
