Some Improvements

Not my favorite layout of the evolving Weather Channel app. Previous versions put more info into one page which was easy to quickly check. Too many screens now to scroll through and too much info that doesn't interest me or pertain to my location like Video, Outdoors, Hurricane Central...and right under Today is news about the east coast which might be interesting but breaks up the most important information for my location which is on the West Coast. But I DO appreciate the Radar and 15-day forecast. Wish settings allowed more customization of each location's home screen.

Didn't like that I have to sign up with personal information to get the push alert features, however there is now an opt-out of ads feature. I appreciate that!

The Widget is great! Concise and they got rid of the video link which took up valuable space and never applied to my location.

Alerts is good but wish again there was more customization options in settings. And right now, even though I've toggled off rain alerts, I'm still getting them. I don't need to know if it's going to be a light rain. I'm getting that alert several times a day on a rainy day. I only want weather warnings.

Any chance that moon rise/set and phase could be added? Yes, I'm asking for the moon and the stars but how nice would that be all in one app?

Ok lastly, can we have sunrise/set on the widget? Please!!!

Widget killed by latest update.

While there have been incremental improvements, this app has still not recovered from its major redesign with Version 6.0.

It finally became usable again and now, with the latest update, the widget — which was the only thing that made the app worthwhile — no longer works.

My previous review still applies:

Previous version (5.4.x) was near perfect with EVERYTHING available within one click from the home screen.

Version 6.x is perhaps the biggest step backward in usability in history! Trying to find any information requires endless scrolling and swiping with huge ads getting in the way and actually slowing down the navigation.

There were over 16,000 negative reviews upon the release of 6.x. They have basically been hidden through multiple "bug fix" updates, each time returning the "Current Version" rating to zero. Those thousands of users have have either deleted the app and said goodbye to TWC or, like me, managed to reinstall the previous version.

Why didn't TWC heed all those poor reviews you might wonder? Because they had already sold advertising space in the new app and they weren't about to give back that money!!

Don't mind a little advertising in your app? You'll change your mind when your entire homepage is nothing but a full-page ad with just a bit of weather info.

Update Broke Weather Widget

This update has somehow broken The Weather Channel widget. It displays, "Cannot get weather data." Oh well, this was a very useful widget that has now passed onto the other side of the great realm; now, please, a moment of silence.

App fails to display my proper location. (Yes, location services are enabled). Provides great weather information, if you're able to find it. Unfortunately, the app forces multiple video sections upon the users and spaces them out in between relevant sections. Locating the radar feature, hourly forecast, etc. can be extremely difficult and time consuming. The app is supposed to provide the weather. I'd rather have ads than the useless videos. TWC app developers still don't seem to recognize the user should be allowed to reorder the sections to suit his or her individual needs or priorities. One size does not fit all.
