My favorite app

I used to rely on the standard Apple weather app that is pre-installed on the iPhone to receive all my forecast knowledge. I had been using it for years to check the weather and daily temp until one day my mother told me to check the radar... what radar? “The radar on the weather channel app,” she replied.

As soon as I downloaded this app my life changed. View the radar when storms are coming, videos about current weather and environment news, warning and watch notifications for changes in weather... it’s amazing! Somehow your friends always think you’re smarter when you know the weather. Thanks, weather channel app, for always telling me when it’s going to rain, you’ve saved a few ruined bonfires! Plus it tells you what time down to the minute it will start raining... and it’s always pretty accurate!

All in all, this app is pretty great. It’s like the weather app of my dreams I didn’t know was the weather app of my dreams until I had it. Through everything the app has always been there for me, telling me an accurate forecast and alerting me with weather notifications. Sometimes getting notifications from the weather channel app is even better than getting a text from my boyfriend. The weather channel app is easily my favorite app. Trusty, reliable, and always tells you the weather. No strings attached!

Getting ridiculous

Update: New update seems much better!!
I’ll just reiterate what everyone else is saying: GO BACK to the old interface. Too many ads, videos, and useless information. We have this app for weather. Newer version is incredibly hard to navigate, always takes forever to load and then reloads to the beginning several times before being able to get to the next few days’ forecast of whichever city I need. Extremely frustrating when I’m out of town or planning a trip, finally get to the section that actually tells me the weather forecast and it reloads to my current city. Also seems to be data-intensive because when I was out in the woods the other day (where weather information was extremely important at the time) I couldn’t get the app to load to save my life but was able to get other apps to load, albeit slowly. Eventually ended up googling the weather from my web browser and that worked...again, we use this app because the forecast tends to be reliable, but the usability of the app is getting to the point where it’s a wash. Been on the verge of deleting it in recent weeks. I’ll give it a couple more updates, then I’m out. Not worth the frustration.

Updated Comments: The app has gone from bad to totally unusable. The “current location” feature gives me the weather and alerts for an area that is 20 miles away. This is particularly annoying and dangerous on severe weather days. Further I repeatedly get notifications about about what the weather will be like tomorrow in different area area that 20 miles away from where I live, in a completely different direction. To make matters worse, when I try and report the errors, the email address provided within the app come back with a delivery failure because it is invalid. After years of loving the Weather Channel on so many levels, and trusting them to keep me informed and safe, I am done. Wish I could give this app a negative star rating.

This used to be a great app. Clean, concise, simple and accurate. However, all the “updates” and redesigns during the last year or so have turned it into one hot mess. It takes forever to load, crashes repeatedly, removes saved locations and settings with each update, and keeps sending me forecasts and alerts for cities where I do not live, have never been to and could care less about. I have sent these concerns to support several times and nothing is ever fixed or even addressed. It’s all about advertising and video features. I have used this app for years, yet am getting ready to delete it. I am so disappointed.
