Dec ‘17 update takes three step backwards


For an APP that’s used (especially) in cases of severe weather and warnings- look for one that is more streamlined and with more immediate access.

Have used and depended on this app on both an iPad and iPhones for several years until this most recent update. The forecasts are reliable and as accurate as current science allows, however the presentation in this upgrade render it too fraught with inconvenience for the time spent to open and load.

* For mobile use and cellular data, the additional video feed load is superfluous and should be an optional item. Arkansas is a rural state with peaks and valleys and is oftentimes spotty between towers even on the interstates. For commuters having to travel in less populated areas, checking the forecast right before going off-grid now requires forethought and cannot be left to the last minute.

** Even on fiber optic high speed it takes longer to load for home use— going to the website has been quicker.

*** the cloud background behind the forecast renders white text illegible. NOTE: this has been fixed in more recent updates.

**** too many advertisers per screen, I would pay for this APP if there were NO sponsors and it were streamlined.

App is good most of the time


I like the app for quick access to the weekly weather and radar when necessary but I have had problems lately with the map not loading and currently can’t even see what the forecast says because the writing is in white and the background is blue with white clouds.

Can’t read forecast after last update


I like this app because it is simple and easy to find the information I need. The latest update looks nice but the cloud background is the same color as most of the numbers and makes the forecast much harder or sometimes impossible to read.
