App needs tweaking

Not happy with the newest alerts from the app. This makes the app like the boy who cried wolf with random alerts not relating to imminent/severe weather. Plus the tone is annoying compared to the useful announcement of the unmistakable Jim Spencer’s voice. That’s my main gripe, however having ads play when trying to watch a severe weather warning video i s clearly much more of an issue, especially when the warning is about a tornado touching down. Also a link to the live broadcast in the sidebar of the app should be added for the same reasoning, and as a redundancy. Don’t forget this app is supposed to help save lives, if it’s too annoying when there’s no bad weather people are going to have the notifications off or delete the app when it’s need most.

Ignore the bad reviews

This is a great app the bad reviews are from old fixed bugs and people that don’t understand how to properly use the app only issue is the ads that sometimes play during
severe warnings which for me is whatever I have dozens of other apps, but it’s a bit annoying for people that are trying to get quick information on a storm headed their way. Another thing I will say is that y’all please don’t use this app for your forecast locally in your town/house if you don’t live in Austin because the temperatures forecasted/cloud cover is for Austin unless you live in a few spots out in the Hill Country where it treats it like as if those areas aren’t part of KXAN viewing area and it’s just the generic TWC Info for those spots but do use it for the rain coverage coverage % it’s for area wide not just Austin proper.

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.
