What's New in Version 7.3.2
Thank you for being a MAX customer. After this update (details below), we are discontinuing support of this app. But, for your valued loyalty, we'd love to offer you one ad-free year in the flagship version of our app.
To activate this offer, simply update your MAX app (for the last time!) and click “Install Free App” on the pop-up prompt that appears when you open the app.
If you prefer to continue using the MAX app, you are welcome to do so. In fact, this release is packed with lots of new features you’ll love. Highlights:
• Complete redesign: You’ll notice the design is more modern and we’ve moved away from our current “button” navigation to a scroll.
• Dynamic Home Screen: Changes based on your current location, weather, and time of day, so you get your current conditions plus the weather info you need most.
• Morning Show: Watch “The Lift,” a 6-minute show that’s exclusive to your app. Join Al Roker, Domenica Davis, and Ari Sarsalari as they cover breaking weather, cool science, and amazing nature clips. Available on your home screen weekdays from 6-11 a.m.
• 15-day forecasts: We are always pursuing the perfect forecast, and the science just got better. Introducing 15-day forecasts that you can rely on.
• Flu and Pollen reports: Know the flu and pollen levels near you--just tap on the health module for details.
Please note: this will be the last update for this app, and some of our features (such as alerts) are no longer supported by MAX.
Ruined the Weather Max
I purchased The Weather Max because it had all the weather information at the top of the screen when I opened the app. Now I have the temperature and a picture of nature. How is that an improvement? Sure the rest of the information is only a slide away but I have a problem with efficiency. If an app is not efficient I will probably not use it and this new app is not currently efficient. I work outdoors. I like to see the forecast for the whole day at the start of my day. Then I could quickly check back later to see the changes. Now I have to slide the app to find the forecast for the day. I have to slide past videos to find the "now" weather. Then I have to slide past more videos to find the "hourly" and "daily" sections. Finally, to get to the radar & maps you have to slide past more videos. Not everyone during their day has time to sit and watch videos. This is the paid version of this app. To improve this app allow the user to turn off the simple home screen and rearrange the section. I would stack now, radar, daily and weekly together in that order. The rest of the page might be useful to some but not necessary for me. I recommend this app for people who work indoors and only need to know what the weather is doing the moment they need to step outdoors. If the function is available to reorganize the app to my liking I will modify my review. I don't see an option to do so right now.
YOU RUINED THIS APP 👎👎👎👎👎
First of all, I, like many people paid money for the ad free version of this app and have used it for about 5 years. The best things about it were ease of information without scrolling or messing around and the push alerts for severe weather. THEY RUINED ALL OF THAT That app was great because if i wanted pollen counts or anything I could find them but **what I needed right away was there when I opened the app and I didn't have to go hunting and scrolling for information***. It's really bad business to completely take away a product people paid for and FORCE another one on us. Who cares if it's "pretty"?! It was fine the way it was. And any company with any sense would see the hundreds of customers who absolutely HATE this garbage new version and figure out a way to give us back the app we all liked used and recommended. YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED weather channel. And yes I'm really mad because I live in a place where weather changes frequently and severe weather can happen out of nowhere and I need to know. So it's not just irritating it defeated what was good in the first place. Absolutely skip the weather channel apps now. I hope somebody figures out they ruined it and gives us the old app back.
Disappointed with the new version
The new weather app is really inefficient. You have to scroll to see anything. The 15 day outlook at a glance doesn't have any dates next to the days of the week. It looks more like the standard iPhone weather app that comes with the phone. I purchased this app originally because of the great interface, ease of use and great information in a easily viewed format. Please bring back the old version. I loved the old version of TWC Max. It was my favorite weather app. It was easy to navigate. I loved how you could see the next 10 days easily with the dates attached. I do appreciate the fact that the designers are trying to make the app better, but they really missed the mark on this newer version. The new version is harder to view, harder to navigate, and the scrolling takes too long to get the information I am looking to view. Unfortunately, I will now go out and search for a new weather app to use. What makes me disappointed the most is that I paid for this app because it was awesome, and now I am forced to search for a new app to try and fill the void left by this new version.
