Weather variety multiple locations

master red fox

I have had this app for awhile and use it to not only get local weather but weather for various locations for my son's work travel as surprisingly conditions vary greatly within a 50 mile area which one needs to know if commuting. I get road conditions and various alerts ( rain, snow, lighting, etc) per area. All helpful. Last year because of the reports I got, I saved my son an unnecessary trip because of the weather report. I enjoy the various videos also.
I am editing review because of the problems I have been having with the app which appears to be all over where this app is used. I contacted support and only got a service standard reply which is basically sent by a computer. I am highly disappointed that I can’t get the app to work anymore because it was very helpful when it worked.
I am not sure if the malfunction is due to the updates on IOS which also requires apps to also update. Whatever the reason, there should be a way to correct problem with app especially when it effects all means of use on phones, tablets and computers.

Pretty awful.


I gave two stars for future radar feature. That’s kind of generous in my opinion. I’m forced to use this app for the future radar feature because I haven’t found a decent app that has a future radar to use instead. The app lags horribly, especially within the future radar screen, if I zoom in and then out or vice versa on the map the overlays disappear. Oh, also, there’s more non-weather related and non-essential content than I know what to do with in this app and it slows it all down remarkably. Let’s not mention how politically biased some of the videos are on this app. I come to the weather channel for the weather not someone’s political opinions. And the weather forecasts...🤦🏻‍♀️ well, they never match what’s on the actual weather channel on TV and never match the National Weather Service’s alerts. My family and I are constantly sharing different forecasts and all from the same weather service! I mean... we all know weather isn’t 100% predictable but.. at least make sure the same forecasts are out for all of your channels and apps? Just a suggestion.

It was great, then terrible, then good, then terrible...


The original WC app back in the day was pretty solid. I paid the $4 for the ad free version. That version of the app was, hands down, the best weather app that has ever existed in the App Store.

Then WC decided to go to a subscription model (because, money). Heck no. The new app has improved since the overhaul as far as look goes, but here’s the kicker; there’s no consistency with what displays. It’s scroll, scroll, scroll to find what I want. I want 4 things. Daily weather, 10-day forecast, maps, and occasionally hour by hour weather. THAT. IS. IT. And I would pay $ for an app that did just that. (I have, and they’re all nowhere near as good as the aforementioned WC paid app.)

Please, WC, give me the option to set up the order of the major sections of the app. Let me buy your ad-free app without forcing me to pay for a subscription. With the look of your current app, do that, and you will have made the best weather app that exists. Come on, developers; convince your corporate bosses that this is what people want and that it will benefit the WC brand in the long run, even if they don’t make a few extra bucks a year from a ridiculous subscription service.
