Ratings and Reviews
October 2017 update is not desirable
Not pleased that you have to set your location access to Always rather than just when using app in order to get radar at your current location. I don’t want any app accessing my location always and it made it a little less convenient to use this app.
Before this update, this app was my regular radar viewing app. Very good radar and the other options (forecast and video) are excellent.
Not liking the changes
I’ve noticed two updates over the past month. One was an interface change and now the radar change. The radar seems to hang at the last place I was at when I closed the app. If I go back in say 15 minutes later, it’s at the same image until I put it into motion. Also this radar isn’t as detailed as the previous app.
I put it in the junk category due to the inaccurate weather radar, it’s the on reason I downloaded it.
When heavy rain is hitting my roof and the radar shows clear, something is not right.
I downloaded weather channel and accuweather and looked at all three all but fox13 shows the storms.
So after the third day of this I deleted fox13 and kept the weather channel, even though it’s slower even when on high speed internet.
I see they’re are alot of 1 stars here so i guess I should of checked first.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
