Worst app ever 1/5
Take a lesson from channel 5 app no problems with theirs. I deleted 7 weather app no one seems to fix it
Channel 7 logo is in the way, font unreadable and an ad in the middle of it.
The old version had a drop down menu for a link to school closings. It was very convenient. Nothing on this one?!?! Why
No video! 1/5
The video on this app is just a black screen. So, if you like watching the weather forecast on the radio, by all means download this. Otherwise, the other Boston channels have better apps.
Love this app 5/5
This has become the only news app I watch. They have live broadcasts far longer than the other stations. The closed captioning is excellent. I also appreciate that they scroll closings while broadcasting.
5 stars 5/5

Thanks for fixing the bug! Update is great
Unusable with ads 1/5
I used to love this app! The main things we look at are the 7 day forecast, the blog, and the specials map to see how much snow we are expecting. Now- there are not only way too many clicks and barriers to get to those things, but the ads pop up so incessantly that you *cannot read* the blog! I have tried even taking screenshots of it because it disappears so fast into a full page ad over and over. I’ll be deleting this app. Very sad to lose this. Please fix!!
Used to be AMAZING now it’s the worst! 1/5
This used to be the most epic weather app - my go to even after moving out of Boston. Then I made the mistake of updating it last week!!! I used to be able to see my current location weather along with the seven day forecast for the city I was in. Now, it will show me only current city conditions with Boston’s seven day...and I’m no longer there. I could add locations and view the conditions for the week so I could plan accordingly. What happened???! Bummed.
Ads ruin the app 2/5
I tried very hard this morning to read the weather blog but couldn’t because of the huge Discover ad that kept popping up. I don’t have a problem with ads - you have to pay for stuff - but you could set a cookie so ads aren’t seen the rest of the session.
It used to be great, now it's almost useless 2/5
We LOVED this app in its previous version. We used it all the time when riding bikes to see when we had to stop, where we had to go to avoid localized showers, and of course for the forecast.
Now it is UNREADABLE on the iPad!!! The giant 7 logo background and the forecast white scrolling lettering makes it IMPOSSIBLE to read! You can't see the words anymore! Ahhh, but you can see the ads just fine.
Look, we know ads are the point for you and we don't mind, but when you make the app unreadable for its main purpose, you have lost your audience and then the ads aren't seen by anybody, something your paying clients should be concerned about.
I'm deleting the app when I am done writing this review. It's too bad. Your very visible ads won't be seen when you lose your audience due to purposeful unreadability in the rest of the app. Sorry to lose this once very useful app.
The Weather Blog is back! 5/5
Thank you for listening to the reviews and feedback. The weather blog is back! This is my favorite part of the app and really the only reason I use it. Glad they returned it to this version of the app.
Latest update is a bummer 1/5
The important local angle (blog, maps) was removed so there is no reason to choose this app over any other generic weather app. I'm really disappointed. Now I have to go back to the website for the actual forecast. I want more than a listing of temps with sun and cloud icons! Dumb "update."
But where's the blog 1/5
It's nice that the radar is more accessible but doing a way with the blog makes this like any generic weather app
Terrible update 1/5
The prior version was easy to use. This one is a disaster. Lots of ads. Background makes it difficult to read the text. Go back to the old version. (And where is the weather blog?!)
This thing is garbage now. I agree with all of the other reviews. Since they updated it they took out everything that made it useful and made it the weather app with their logo, useless now.
WORST UPDATE!!! 1/5
You took away the weather blog, was the best part.....I've already deleted this app!!! Bring back the old one
Changed for the worse 1/5
The WHDH weather app was unique and useful prior to this update; it had all sorts of maps and most importantly, the blog. Now it is difficult to use and has far less information. I can get the same data from the iphone weather app in a much clearer format. Deleted.
Bring back the blog 1/5
My default on 7 app was the blog with actual opinion from Chanel 7's great weather broadcast staff. No other weather app offers a similar feature. Now that it's removed I see no benefit to this app versus WeatherBug.
The revamp of the app is terrible. No blog, maps, live content anymore and the look is bland. Don't know why they changed. Was by far the best weather app and blew the other local station apps out of the water now it's terrible, I've deleted it.
Worst update ever 1/5
This was my favorite weather app, now it's the worst! It's almost impossible to read on an iPad. The logo sits right on top of everything. You have to scroll what you want to read to a blank spot. Where did the blog go? Blog was the best, now gone. Also, thanks for wiping out all my saved locations.
Bring Back The Blog 1/5
The only reason for the app.
By Jeff 1987
Two steps forward, four steps back. Yes, there are new features and a new look, but there are lost features as well. My biggest issue is how this app became click bait. There's almost more ads than content now! Was a simple straight forward app, but no longer. I truly want to support the independent local station, but this reinvented app is garbage ...
Upgrade aweful. Just so you can add ads 1/5
The reason I like the Weather 7 app is it was simple. Everything on one screen. No scrolling to get where you want to go. You basically copied the Weather Channel app. I switch to yours because the Weather channel app is all advertisements and videos nobody watches. Now I have to go find another Weather app that simple to use. I am a 7 News watcher for all my News and Weather. Just not happy with the new app upgrade so you can add more advertisements
Lost weather video ?? 2/5
New look is fine but I can only find 'watch live'. Where did 'watch latest forecast' go? Many weather apps can tell me the weather. This was the only one with a useful video forecast and this update seems to remove it?
Horrible update 1/5
All the reasons would use (blog and maps) gone....deleted.
No detailed forecast 1/5
Pictures and video forecasts, but no detailed forecast option without watching the video.
New changes are awful 2/5
By Farmer Lindsay
I used to LOVE this app now the new format makes it difficult to watch video forcasts or really anything.... Not sure why everything changed 😕
Popup ads! 1/5
Omg - the adds that pop up are out of control. Same ad comes up multiple times. Please make it stop or improve the design so you can dismiss it once. There also seems to be more screen space dedicated to ads than news. Aren't you supposed to be a news station? Get it together whdh.
Ads have driven me away! 1/5
I know your app need to make money, but the expanding ads are miserable. I won't use the app anymore.
Gone downhill 2/5
App used to be good. The new format isn't as intuitive. It also doesn't connect a lot of times now and doesn't show any forecast or radar map.
Would be nice if they fixed the bugs.
Ads pop up constantly, including alert boxes that force you to click OK and try to redirect you to the App Store to buy something. I love reading the weather blog. Too bad. Uninstalling.
Update stinks 2/5
Not as user friendly after the last update :(
Works great 5/5
This app runs very smoothly. Can always watch the latest forecast video. Plus the live streaming of the news runs flawless with perfect picture.
Bigger maps!!! 5/5
Bigger maps please
Too bad 1/5
By MAs World
This used to be my #1 weather goto app!
Earlier this year you made major changes which ruined it, especially the new tiny sized 7day map, now the tiny map has even lost its tiny neat graphics! You really blew it! Channel7 weather is the most Acurate but unfortunately your app now is weak, slow and clunky!
Fire your developer and get a real app, you deserve it!
I really rely on this app to provide me with the daily weather.
So far so good 4/5
Love the new interface and so far it works great! Nice work 👍
Dreadful updates 1/5
By Davey's Gal
I have this app for one reason: the weather. Now, when I select the "Weather Blog" tab, it takes me to the local news. Please return to the previous design with easy access to weather information in the weather app.
Terrible update, can't use...app freezes whenever I open weather blog...crashes quiet a bit too 👎👎 please fix👎👎
Terrible app. 1/5
The new design and updates are terrible. This app is almost unusable. It is glitchy and freezes every time I have used it. Often there are sections that are inexplicably inaccessible. So annoying.
Useless the past 3 days 1/5
By Dan A, Boston
Since whdh updated their website, the app is broken. No data has been updated and the maps don't work. Please fix
Terrible app 1/5
By TerribleApp-don't use
This app is always crashing, never works when you want it to (snow storms) and is just terrible. Better off looking out the window
Could be great 1/5
By Sara Gummybears
I do prefer the old version although some of the graphics are a little better, however, the reason I gave it 1 star is it seems like during the most important time, like expecting 12 inches of snow, there is no video forecast posted!! Lame!!
App stinks! 1/5
The new design is terrible as not easy to navigate. It didn't need to be changed. I'm deleting this one.
Updated design is horrible. 1/5
App doesn't start on the most important screen! Every time it starts up with the side bar. It should start with your top favorite places weather by default.
I open the app for weather.
No reason I should have to tap something else to get there.
One significant problem 2/5
By Standard Gamble
The actual forecast has nothing to do with the graphics on the extended forecast. For example, there is supposed to be significant rain this Thursday, but it shows a bright sun and mostly clear. Alongside this is a 90% chance of precip! Is it so hard to do this right?
Why have a separate weather app apart from the news app? Just integrate the two. If the news app doesn't have sufficient weather information then it's poorly designed and a bit of a rip off.
Great app 5/5
I use it daily! ☀⛅☁⚡☔❄
iPhone 5 1/5

Doesn't fit to iPhone 5 screen

Thanks for the 4.3 update. Works great.
