Customer Reviews

Not as good as their older weather app

I used the NECN weather app for many years. A year or so ago it started bugging me to upgrade to their full news+weather app. But I liked the weather app so much I put up with and ignored their prompt every day. Recently the old app stopped working so I gave this new one a try. Meh. Not as concise and useable as the old one. Lots more scrolling required to see info that was right up front before (like 10 day forecast). Horizontal scrolling (on hourly, for example) shows less data at a time than old vertical scrolling). MANY more ads interspersed with the data, along with new layout and color scheme, make it harder to pick out the data at a glance. I'll be looking for a better weather app.

Not worth the space

The only reason why I downloaded this app is so that the NECN weather app will stop asking me to download it.…guess what: it still asks me every time. Very frustrating. The app itself is mediocre at best and the constant buffering for videos is intolerable. Deleting ASAP.

Why couldn't you just leave well enough alone? All I needed was a simple, yet comprehensive weather app (which you had) and you've turned it into garbage. Why did you turn it into an everything news app.

Seems good

I avoided the upgrade because most of the reviews were bad. I think people loved the simplicity of the old weather app. But this one is good too. After a few days it's just as good. I didn't like the change at first either but keep an open mind and see that this is just as good. In some cases better.
