Customer Reviews

Such a nice app I gave it 1 star!

A couple years ago when not so many weather apps you could bank on this one being right. Now I can not even log into it and have no idea why. I hate this app just as much as Safari. Ads Ads not ads come on if your going to stick an app on we can not delete than give us your customers the right to delete it and I mean off my screen notice I said my screen. Both of them either make them right or let us remove them period.

I would like to update my review - I have kept trying this app and I am so glad I have. It seldom crashes and the recents weather update have been 99% better than before enough so that I trust them now. The social media updates for the areas you or are presently add to knowing what the weather actually is also. But if I want to report that it is snowing in my area or else where I happen to be located - there is nothing to report its snowing. So people that take part in this program can not report its snowing only that is raining. I have seen a few people that have a snow flake. Other than this I am very satisfied with your app now. Keep up the good job . Thank You

Not aging well with time...

Over a year ago when I first got this app I probably would have recommended it. It was relatively clean and easy to use. Like many previous reviews I would like to see the radar feature positioned closer to the top. However this is a relatively minor thing compared to glut and utter avalanche of advertising that has been added to this app since the last update.

Not only have they buried what probably would be considered a relatively useful app under a virtual landslide of garbage add-ins such as video links and useless advertising but they decide to turn around and poke you in the eye one more time by offering to turn the adds off for a nominal fee.

Turns out, its just a way to get a couple more coins out of your pocket and it doesn't even work. After paying their ransom for holding my weather information hostage the end result was....more advertising. The only way the adds will shut down is if I completely turn the app off and re-launch it every time I want to use it.

For consulting your local weather, it's not half bad. As for their little in-app purchase, I highly recommend that you ignore it and keep your coins in your pocket. The advertising and video extras are really the items that are keeping this from being a really useful app. I wouldn't recommend this app at this time. It's too bad that it didn't get any better after what was probably considerable work to this last update.

Getting progressively worse

I find it interesting what a company claims to be listening to customers only to go in the opposite direction. Burying radar at the bottom? (Well, you do have to scroll through all the ads...) Still no 60 second local forecast? Lots of useless video instead. Some trend graphs would be nice, too.

The biggest reason for the Low rating? The ads. I don't mind a few banner ads, but TWC goes far beyond. Ads are thick throughout the app and many are widget sized. It is also the densest ad-to-content ratio I have ever seen. When the ads reach the point of interfering with the use of the app, it's time to delete it. There are many other apps that are much easier, or give more information and have reasonable advertising.

In this newest version, they are offering an ad free subscription. First it's priced above better competitors. Second, it's frankly insulting to ridiculously overload it with ads then offer to take them away for $4/year. Finally, it just doesn't have the value to justify the cost.
