For a while now, I have not been able to go on the radar and view the specific page long details of certain watches or warnings that are issued in cities located around me. I remember I used to be able to do this....wish you’d all bring it back. It was nice to be able to simply go on the app and look at the more in depth details for areas I currently am not in. The only way now I can tap on specific watches or warnings to view the long page of details is only if my GPS indicates that I’m actually within range of whatever specific watch or warning I’m trying to view.

Absolutely Terrible 🙈

Love Ian Leonard, but his weather app is the worst. I can’t for the life of me figure out why they promote this app so heavily. There’s only one part of this app that is accurate and that is the radar. Every other element is out of touch with reality. Forecasts NOT even close to the National Weather Service. Most of the daily forecasts are literally a guess just to fill in space, Not to mention none of the elements in the daily info even match what the Fox 9 TV segment says. Winds for example will show the same direction and speed for days which we all know aren’t true unless the earth stops moving. Really Ian, your beloved app is distorting you and your team’s reputation. Stay on top of updating the information and you’ll be the go to app for ACCURATE weather reliability.
And one last thing, School Closing tab does not work at all. Not accurate and very seldom posts any information. What good is it. Insert the tab when there is info to share otherwise hide it until there’s useful information to share.

Limited Options

I would up the rating to 5 stars on the condition there would be additional features like in-app purchases to remove ads and get radar feeds from Lacrosse, WI, Aberdeen SD, Iowa, Fargo, ND and Duluth, MN. It would also be nice to buy the meteorologists a coke, Pepsi, or a coffee via a tipping platform in the app for when Severe Weather happens and they have to be on air well past their bedtime to keep us safe. When these features are implemented I’ll be sure to update my review and give 5 Stars. I’d love to get Ian Leonard a few cups of coffee for 99¢ every time he made sure he kept us safe. I love how funny he is even when severe weather is happening he knows how to get people to be calm and sensible by using humor. -Ted Roberts
