Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
Not working right
This has been happening for at least 2 months. I use to love this app but now It won’t let me open it the first time. It takes a lot of try’s to get it to turn to landscape. I had to take my iPad in because it was acting slow. When the Apple person looked at my iPad it had the Fox 9 weather app as having problems. I will be looking for another Weather App because this one has too many bugs. Too bad, I really liked this one. This has been going on for 3 months. Please fix it!
