Mostly Pleased

I love WXII! I’m mostly please with the app too. However, the app can be frustrating. Whenever I get an alert on my phone for ‘breaking news’, or ‘weather alert’ and I click the alert- it doesn’t take me to the actual place to read more about it. It just takes me to the home page and I have to search for the story. Sometimes the app hasn’t even been updated with the new info that I just got the alert for.

The old Weather App was excellent - 5 stars for that but it’s being scrapped. The weather on the current site is terrible. It can be pouring rain but nothing shows on the map. I can’t get it to “remember” my chosen area no matter how many times I set it. Don’t even think about using it if you are in a hurry.
The traffic part of the app is completely useless. I can be stuck sitting in traffic on 52 for twenty minutes and it shows nothing! NEVER count on it for traffic.
The news arrangements make no sense. The stories are all over the place when it comes to organizing content. Often stories stay up for several days when you know that plenty of other stories could & should replace them.
If you like ads and have plenty of time to sit through them to get to where you need to go, maybe you won’t mind using this.

Need Up-To -HOUR Weekend Weather reports!

I have become very disappointed with weekend weather on the WXII app. For the past 6-9 months it seems that we can’t get timely updates by video on the site. I was just checking the app for RECENT video forecast, it’s 7:10 PM on Sat., Jan. 12th. We’re in the middle of a winter storm warning, and the ONLY weather video I can get is from 8:30 AM this morning. Seems to be a recurring theme every weekend. Can’t get the latest information from the weather videos. I know there is news on the TV several times on Sat. & Sunday. Seems it would be simple to just upload to app each time. It would be greatly appreciated if timely weather videos are available on weekends, as well as during the week!!
Thanks for your attention!!
