Was a great app, until traffic was removed!

I was majorly disappointed when the WTHR app updated to this new version because the traffic map has been eliminated! Now I have had to add a separate app to my phone to see traffic issues. I liked being able to get my weather and traffic from this one app. The traffic option made this a 5 star app for me, but not anymore!

We understand your frustration. The same traffic map and gas prices are still in WTHR News app, but we understand that might be in inconvenience for you. We partnered with a new company for much better weather technology but unfortunately that means the traffic function couldn't be supported in this app.

Delivery driver

I’m a delivery driver in Bloomington. I used this app for years. It was pretty accurate, I’m assuming because it used the radar at the small airport here, and didn’t have many ads or random banners to accidentally click on. I need to know what the weather is, I need the forecast, and I need it to be faster and less frustrating then just using google. I’m not sure when the change to this less accurate more ad intensive-(more frustrating) Version happened. But in my opinion if the experience isn’t better and easier to use then just googling the weather, then it’s not worth it to me personally. Skip this ad heavy app. It’s frustrating to deal with, way less accurate then it was a few years ago, and google is now the better option.

Update disappointing - reconsidered

Like other reviewers, very disappointed in update. I used the traffic section to get around safely and checked the gas prices every time I needed to fill up. Looking for new app or apps to find this again. Bad call, channel 13.

After further fiddling with the app, I found the traffic and gas buddy shunted into the Blog. I still think it deserved its own prominent icon on the menu but take back some of my mean words. I'd still go back to the previous version if it was available.

The same traffic map and gas prices are still in WTHR News app. We are refocusing the weather app to be strictly about weather. We partnered with a new company for much better weather technology but unfortunately that means the traffic function couldn't be supported in this app. We understand your frustration but hopefully the news app will still deliver the information you need.
