Ratings and Reviews
Can no longer view forecast without persistent ads
As in the title. When viewing anything in the app a full screen advertisement pops up, after dismissing the ad it will come back within seconds making the app unusable. Along with this simply going to view a video forecast makes a video ad come up every single time. I get banner ads sure but this isn’t acceptable by any means. There’s plenty of alternative weather apps out there, only reason to use this was for local forecasts with our own meteorologists and to support the local station. But that’s getting much harder to do now.
Worthless when it takes so long to load
The title says it all. Since the recent redesign of the app, it is almost useless. Why use this app when other weather apps open in a fraction of the time? I need accurate weather information quickly and the app no longer does it.
The original design was way better. Why load the 12.2 feed if you don’t want to see it? Why load the stupid blog posts? Why load the closings area when there are none? Etcetera. Stupid is as stupid does!
Nasty and not user friendly. Pretty much like this weather team who interrupts network programming to ramble on about stuff happening a hundred miles away when they have 12.2 and 12.5 broadcasting weather ALL THE TIME!!! Just put a crawl on the bottom of 12.1 and 12.4 saying there’s a potentially dangerous storm and refer people to 12.2 and 12.5 to get the details!!!!! Why have a 24/7 weather channel (simulcast on two sub channels) if you don’t use it to solve this ongoing and easily resolved issue?
Update has made it unusable
Since the update a little over a week ago, the app is extremely difficult to use. The map moves too fast, and the resolution seems worse. There is a glitch as well that occurs after receiving an alert. For instance, if I get an alert that there is lightning nearby, and I click on the alert, it takes me to a static zoomed in map. But then when you return to the radar map, you cannot get any the watch or warning boxes (that normally disappear while the map is in motion) to go away. These boxes cover the radar image. Restarting does nothing. Frustrating. I’ll switch to something else.
