Inferior and unreliable
TWC has gone backwards on this app. First its instability is frustrating: won't update at times or freezes and needs restarting. It is not intuitively easy: for example you have to know to click "weekend weather" in the 10 day section to get detailed forecast for the current day. In older versions one could easily get a temporary location while planning a trip or tracking someone else's weather. No more: you can only have 10 sites & erase one if you search another location. Also the ads too easily interfere with navigating the site. Finally when will the app give conditions like amount of snowfall instead of just forecast? It says how much to expect but not how much you got! Glad I have wether apps. The app is like the channel: too much glitz but frustrating if you just want weather!!!
I would give this app 2 stars. It is HORRIBLY inaccurate. If you're wanting this app to help make traveling decisions or to plan your week, don't use this app or make any decisions based off of this app. Use your local news station or something like that. I thought this app would be the best because it came from The Weather Channel but it is honestly one of the worst more unreliable weather apps out there. Weather changes from day to day. The weather channel should not only be completely and totally embarrassed by this app, but they themselves should be incredibly disappointed by producing such an unreliable app.
Best Weather App I've Found
My iPhone 6+ came with a preloaded weather app that was terrible. I had used this app with my other phones and it always worked well. On my new phone I get better graphics and the news portion is great to watch.
I also love the fact that I live in the middle of a tri-state area and key locations that I travel to and from are always up to date and the alerts come in at a time that I choose daily. I could go on and on about all the great features, but you should really try it out yourself. I am sure you'll enjoy it.
