Ratings and Reviews
Only works sporatically
I have used this app and very much enjoyed it over the past five years. However within the last two months I continually get the message that the application is currently not available in my location and you’re stuck with just a black screen. Sometimes it will start working if I delete the app and reinstall it. I’ve noticed this is mostly happening during busy use times. Very frustrating! I live in Lindstrom please address this issue as I’m being forced to go to the channel 5 weather app now.
If it ain’t broke don’t fix it
I’ve had this app for 6 years, and I loved it! However, this new update completely changed everything. This app is now terrible and annoying. The new layout is horrible and can be confusing. I wish I could change it back to the previous version because that version was simple, easy to use, and it worked well. Also they encourage you to turn on notifications so you know about severe weather updates in your area, however it also notifies you every time there’s a stupid weather headline (example- Monday morning snow caused 200 crashes on MN roads) and there is no way to turn those off and just receive the important severe weather warnings so you’re constantly getting stupid notifications that are nothing to be concerned about. So after having the app for 6 years, I am seriously considering deleting it. The new update killed this app!
Developer Response ,
Thank you for sharing your concerns. You are able to turn off the alerts for weather headlines by disabling "station alerts" in the app settings. You can still keep severe weather alerts turned on.
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.
