Room for improvement
I use this app very frequently and I like it, but there are some things that could make it better. I get that the 15 day forecast is hard to predict, but I feel like the current day probably isn't as hard. Maybe looking at the current radar would help. It can be frustrating when it's currently raining, but the app says that it's just cloudy. Last week, "people around me" were reporting snow. I live in Texas, and it's April. The temp at the time was in the 70s. I like the allergy forecast, but I don't feel like it's ever accurate. I have pretty bad allergies, and usually on my worst days the allergies report as low and when I'm not having problems it usually says that allergies are high. I liked it better when it separated the allergens. I read through several of the reviews and one really great idea that I saw was to put the date on The Lift videos. Oh, and every time there's a severe weather alert I get 2 notifications. I do like that you can check the weather anywhere, this helps a lot to know what to pack when I travel. All in all, I like the app and will continue to use it, but a lot of the suggestions that I read would really help to make it better. Oh, one last thing. Is there any way that the radar could show up outside of the US? I traveled to Jamaica last year and the radar wouldn't go that far. I'm definitely not complaining, just some constructive criticism. Thanks for this opportunity to help.
One idiotic error.
The app works pretty well. I’m not seeing the things being complained about in other reviews. For whatever it’s worth, I have an iPhone 6+. However, years after my first complaint, the app still has one basic error in elementary-school science.
The US does not and never did use the Imperial System. The Imperial System was developed in 1824, long after the independence of the United States, and it is not the same as the US Customary System, which is what the US uses. Both systems are based on the old English units that evolved in the middle ages from the units of the Roman Empire, but many US and Imperial units have different values, some substantially different, and they aren’t even always related to each other in the same way. A US Liquid Pint, for example, has 16 US Fluid Ounces, but an Imperial Pint (the Imperial System doesn’t have two different pints depending on whether it’s strawberries or cream that you’re measuring) has 20 Imperial Fluid Ounces.
This is stuff that you should have been taught along with percentages, and should have learned over again the first time you looked at the “Handbook of Chemistry and Physics”. (And if you’re unacquainted with the latter, how can meteorology seriously claim to be a science?)
I have been a longtime user of the Weather Channel app, dating back to my blackberry. I hated the ads & paid to upgrade to MAX almost immediately when I got my iPhone years ago. I have stuck with the app despite the addition of videos that played almost immediately, sucking up my video minutes on my plan. I liked the alerts it provided, since I live in a rural area plagued by severe weather & tornadoes. I liked to see the weekly forecast & that I could add places to my favorites, particularly if I was traveling there. My weather alerts went off when we were in the park at Universal Orlando a year ago. This morning I'm traveling into the city & opened the app to check the forecast, only to discover that my PAID app is no longer supported but I can keep the lesser free app, with the first year ad free. Never mind that I have been ad free for YEARS now. So I'm looking for a new weather app now that will provide the alerts I need combined with the locations that I need.
Update: So, after weather app shopping, I still haven't been able to replace Weather Channel MAX. So, I did the upgrade to the basic "ad free" that was promised me as a MAX buyer. HA!!! It's the same basic piece of junk & still has ads. So much for promises to a loyal user.
I HATE YOU, WEATHER CHANNEL. Still shopping for your replacement.
