Commercials' sound volume are too loud.

I like the Weather notifications however when I click on the notifications there is a video with a very loud commercial and annoying sounds. Then when the actual weather video report comes it’s very quiet. Hence I rarely watch your videos. You need to adjust the volume levels so they are the same for commercials and for the video weather report. Quieter commercials. Louder weather report.

This WAS my favorite app...

Love/hate has progressed to just hate with the new edition of (approx.) May 2019. The annoyance of the app not respecting the portrait/landscape current position (which it did at one time) just required a restart of the app. But the “new, improved” radar page is abominable, and will force me to move on. Where the prior iteration radar page showed clickable watch/warning areas only when the animation was stopped, this version shows non-clickable areas all the time, totally obscuring the radar data beneath them. Surely Jim Spencer had no say in that, since it renders the radar data useless. The underlying map data is ugly compared to before... and if you click on an alert for your area, it brings you to a radar view of the roof of your HOUSE... decidedly less useful than the neighborhood view of before, so you’ll be “pinching” the screen over and over to get a useable view. This is the equivalent of switching from Google Earth to Apple Maps in the early days.

Negative 1 star is more like it

I would be more than happy to pay money for a decent weather app. I have at least 20$ invested in weather radar pro. KXAN app is buggy and stops short of malware...for NOW. Adverts go way beyond annoying to near infuriating. Theres nothing worse than having video ads co-opting your ap when you're trying to see if there is a tornado about to wipe you out. Wake up KXAN.
Just FYI. The free weather radar pro pulls all the local TV weather radars together plus noaa/faa/nhc/usgc warnings and updates. Free version contains minimal ads, 1000x less than KXAN ap, and at least gives you options to remove via nominal purchase. I have licensed the aviation weather layers which are perfect for pilots. All notams and faa conditions etc.. This is not an ad for WRP but I've been soooo frustrated with weather aps especially kxan.
