Ratings and Reviews
I have been frustrated with this app almost from the day I installed it. Not only is it “buggy” no matter how many times they update it to fix bugs but this latest update has made the display more friendly for “newer” iPhones. In the process it has made text and icons smaller and I can no longer find a way to make the text bold as in older versions. For someone with any vision issues this can be a problem. I do not consider my iPhone “old” and the display is not small (I have an 8 Plus) yet their support for only “newer” phones has a very negative impact on this user’s experience. I should not have to carry the latest and greatest most expensive phone to be able to comfortably use this app. Using this for traffic will now be virtually impossible for me and since most other parts of the app were already useless this has become just a waste of storage on my “older” phone. Thanks again for your lack of customer service Spectrum.
Not what I was expecting
The app is basically the same as opening bay news 9 in the internet browser. Not much of an “app feel” to it. The weather radar is different from their website which begs the question which one is more accurate? Also you can’t use the app as a widget so you can’t easily glance over and get local information. The general weather widget for iPhone is easier at a quick glance for weather info plus opening it for more detailed information about the current weather you your area. If you want to load the bay news 9 website slightly quicker then sure the app is great, but for it being an “app” I’d say it’s not worth it.
Useful app. Good helper
