Low Temperature Discrepency
The 10 day outlook has low temps, which are consistently way off. It has something to do with how this app automatically populates the 10 day forecast temps. If you look at the lows for day one and then kook for the low on the hour by hour half the time the low is never even reached. The app screws up the population of data and grabs the low over a 24hr period. For example, say you look at the 10 day forecast at 5am monday morning. Monday will state a low of 5 degrees and high of 25. Then you look at the hour by hour and it's currently 15 degrees and grafually moves up to 20 throughout the day then cools back dow at night abd it turns out it does get down to 5 degrees, but on Tuesday morning at 4am, which is not on Monday, but within 24 hrs of when you are checking. This has screwed me so many times before i realized what was going on. I walk out thinking it's a lot colder than it is because, but this app is actually spitting out a low which is not even on the correct day. Get you act together "weather" channel.
Inferior and unreliable
TWC has gone backwards on this app. First its instability is frustrating: won't update at times or freezes and needs restarting. It is not intuitively easy: for example you have to know to click "weekend weather" in the 10 day section to get detailed forecast for the current day. In older versions one could easily get a temporary location while planning a trip or tracking someone else's weather. No more: you can only have 10 sites & erase one if you search another location. Also the ads too easily interfere with navigating the site. Finally when will the app give conditions like amount of snowfall instead of just forecast? It says how much to expect but not how much you got! Glad I have wether apps. The app is like the channel: too much glitz but frustrating if you just want weather!!!
Really wish I could have my old TWC app back
The pictures and graphics are really pretty, but that's where the positive review ends. I really dislike having to scroll up and down for the various weather info, having to constantly move and adjust to center what you are trying to read, correctly on your screen. And with all the terrible ads all over it, it's far, far, far too easy to accidentally touch an ad while trying to scroll up and down. Plus, there is a glitch when you touch "more" under the hourly forecast; the times of day are incorrect. You have to exit back out of "more hourly," then go back in, for the times of day to be corrected. Really wish I could have the old app back, and just tap one button for each of the various weather options!
