Too Broad Area

This app does not allow me to select what counties I want to receive alerts from, so I constantly receive alerts for areas that do not even remotely affect me. Last night during a storm I received tons of alerts (50+). This has the opposite desired effect, because I start deleting them without reading them and it becomes a nuisance. Kind of like the "cry wolf" effect... if they would fix this so I could only get alerts for where I live I would give it 5 stars.

Not accurate and cop out responses

This app has been great from the time I first downloaded in 2013. I didn’t care for the new layout but I figured I’d get used to it. I used it a great deal for the radar when I lived in Oklahoma for farming. Then when I moved, I kept it because of how accurate the radar was and the notifications. I have family scattered all over Oklahoma; I have relatives that are terrified of tornadoes so I keep tabs when weather events are happening in their area. Last night I received alerts of excessive heat, lightning, thunderstorms, and flooding for the Guthrie area. At no time did I receive alerts for high wind or the freaking tornado that bounced through there. I emailed the app to ask why the TORNADO notification didn’t come thru, explaining I’d received other notifications. I was told there were notifications and I needed to make sure the notifications option was turned on. I sent a screen shot of the notifications I’d received, asking if they could just have someone look into why some alerts were sent but not others and was told I should have had my news alerts on too.
Be aware this app just isn’t what it used to be and the support isn’t very helpful.

Needs A Cleanup

News 9 is the only news station I’ll watch in OKC but their weather app is not very user friendly. KFOR (who I don’t watch) has a very simple and clean weather app that sends out warnings when needed. I wouldn’t know if News 9’s app does because it’s too cluttered to keep on my phone. I strongly suggest making the home page of the app more simplistic with maybe the radar with a strip along the bottom showing the forecast and maybe a side with options to watch live, recent videos etc. The current layout involving scrolling and and opening different stuff up is just not user friendly in my opinion. Again, News 9 is the only news station I’ll watch but I wish they’d update their app.
