Ratings and Reviews
I used to love this app (5 star rating) Tom skilling would announce the alerts 🚨 straight to the phone. Unfortunately now it’s someone else (no disrespect) just not a fan that I turn notifications off bc of the voice. There should really be an option for announcers voices since they’re able to switch. I just don’t understand why they removed Tom. Tom Skilling is priceless to WGN like Harry Caray to Wrigley field. I’ll be switching to another weather app in the meantime.
My Favorite Weather App No Matter Where You Live
After spending all of my childhood and most of my adult life in the Chicago area, I moved to the east coast a few years ago. One of the first things I missed was WGN Weather, which has always been exemplary. I was so happy to find this app, which is ALWAYS the most accurate for my weather in the Philadelphia area. Sadly, there is no one even close to Tom Skilling and his team elsewhere in the country. They don’t get that a weather report is NOT simply reading out the temperatures on a map. The WGN Weather Team actually EXPLAINS it to you. Kudos to WGN, Tom Skilling, and the entire WGN weather team for doing the best weather in the country! Of course this app will not explain it to you the way the professionals at WGN Weather do it on WGN TV, but at this app will give you the most accurate weather available anywhere. Full Stop.
Pop-up of Tom Skilling and someone else
I’ve used the WGN Weather app for quite some time now. It is the best app out of all those in the App Store. But since you added the pop-up picture of Tom Skilling and someone else, every time I use the app I get so disgusted with having to close a window that adds absolutely nothing to the app except irritation before I can get the information I wish. Please remove this feature. I find it totally useless as far as I am concerned. If it remains, I will find another source for my weather information.
