Have sense of humor and even in this unsettled time you have done an excellent job keeping us informed without terrorizing us more. Thank you. I listen to news when it is on and programs. Keep up the great work. Stay safe and be well. Sue Reiffenstein

New format is terrible

New format is clumsy and a huge step backwards in my opinion. But the worst is the weather! We used to have the wonderful lightning track local Doppler and now it’s a basic live view like everyone else! And all the other locations are gone. Sure you can have 5 at the top now (I think I had 20 before saved) but you can only see the current day and even that you can’t see much of. 10 day forecasts are gone as well. And the alerts are gone or at least I can’t find them. I still get notifications that a storm warning is in effect for one of my old saved locations but when I click the notification it just takes me to the main page on the app?! What the heck? Biggest downgrade I’ve ever seen for any app, ever.

Unhappy change

I’m unhappy with the new format of the app. The previous format was well laid out and clear- easy to follow and find things. Now features are even missing, such as Consumer Reports. I searched it and the most recent ones didn’t even come up. I loved this feature and would often reference it. Also, even though we’re in April, in an area where winter is around 75% of the time (and as a teacher) school closings were nice to have easily accessible. Now you have to search for it. In general, it’s a much darker and unappealing app. I’m very disappointed in something that I’ve always started my day with.
