What happened?!

I hate that they took off the past and future options on the radar which was really helpful. This app has also become very slow within the last couple months probably do to so many ads on the screen 😕

I’ll always watch WBTV, but this app is worse than useless. It’s dangerous. It doesn’t always show a radar reading, and when it does, it is NEVER correct. It’s always different than what’s being shown on Chanel 3, always. Giving such misleading weather information is just plain dangerous when people rely on it for planning their daily lives. It will show clear skies in my area while a storm rolls through. Don’t use this app to plan any outdoor activities. You just might find unexpected thunder and lightning overhead.

Alerts Audible Inconsistent

I have all the settings on and the notification comes to screen but no sound or every other time. Lucky I’ve caught it pop up each time. Also the video cuts off before anchor is done so I wind up going to check weather elsewhere. 👎🏻
