Ratings and Reviews
My favorite app
I used to rely on the standard Apple weather app that is pre-installed on the iPhone to receive all my forecast knowledge. I had been using it for years to check the weather and daily temp until one day my mother told me to check the radar... what radar? “The radar on the weather channel app,” she replied.
As soon as I downloaded this app my life changed. View the radar when storms are coming, videos about current weather and environment news, warning and watch notifications for changes in weather... it’s amazing! Somehow your friends always think you’re smarter when you know the weather. Thanks, weather channel app, for always telling me when it’s going to rain, you’ve saved a few ruined bonfires! Plus it tells you what time down to the minute it will start raining... and it’s always pretty accurate!
All in all, this app is pretty great. It’s like the weather app of my dreams I didn’t know was the weather app of my dreams until I had it. Through everything the app has always been there for me, telling me an accurate forecast and alerting me with weather notifications. Sometimes getting notifications from the weather channel app is even better than getting a text from my boyfriend. The weather channel app is easily my favorite app. Trusty, reliable, and always tells you the weather. No strings attached!

Thanks for the feedback! Have a great summer.
Weather Channel App Great Tool for Travel
My wife and I having to travel throughout the state of Texas, occasionally with our children,results in many changes and fluctuations in the weather. We can be in central Texas in San Antonio with high temperatures and strong wind (allergens: dust & pollen) will change dramatically as we venture into East Texas surrounding Houston with lower temperatures, but with a major increase in relative humidity and the dew point (allergens: mold and grasses). Having a family with a variety of allergies, compounded with the need to stay vigilant about the novel Coronavirus(CoVid-19), can leave some of us concerned for our health if we do not prepare for the changing weather.
Another major advantage in having The Weather Channel are the weather alerts warning us of severe weather. We have on several occasions received alerts/bulletins on severe weather outside of our region but within areas where we have family that are elderly. We were able to call them and advise them to take the necessary precautions. This has been a Godsend.
The ability to see up-to-date forecasts of any city or region on The Weather Channel allows us to plan specific activities and outings, while taking the necessary precautions. All this and so much more conveniently located at the touch of a button on a single site - The Weather Channel!

Used to be a great app
The Weather Channel App used to be a great App. Now I find it difficult to even open. I touch to open and it immediately closes, so I have to tap a second time. It then takes 20-30 seconds to open. Once the app is open an Upgrade to Premium screen appears first (for a fee). It freezes as I’m using it and I have to close and reopen to get it to work. See steps above that have to be repeated when it freezes. It is slow to respond to screen swiping or moving from one to another.
When viewing the radar section in the app and animating the forecast there was a digital clock showing time as it advances. This is no longer available.
I’m constantly barraged with adds and upgrade requests to the premium version. If I move out of the app and come back, it is frozen and Will close by itself forcing me to re-open. See steps above for re-opening the app.
All in all what once was my go to for temp, precip, forecast, and other weather information this has become a lesson in frustration and not an enjoyable experience. This has been happening not only on my phone but with others I’ve discussed this with.
Although I’ve updated the app and my phone as well, it seems to be getting worse and worse.
