Have to downgrade my rating
This app was once my favorite weather app. But with the last few versions, the consistency of the forecast has degraded and the ads and videos (that I don't watch) have become so invasive that it distracts from the information I want to see. At times it is pouring rain outside and the app says it is sunny or vice versa. The hourly forecast between the app and the website is seldom the same for my area, and sometimes radically different, that I don't know which one to believe. Generally, the app is wrong. Comparing this app to another app, I have found the other app to be more correct...at least as far as wether forecasts go for my area. The app location based weather now just posts North Carolina versus my actual city and the weather information displayed is different from the weather information displayed when I type in my city specifically...sometimes notably different. Bottom line for me is the usability, quality and believability of this app for wether in my area has fallen to the point there are other apps I now prefer. I understand the need for ads, and have no issues seeing them in free app versions, but when they distract so much from the information you want to see, it turns me off. I just was accurate current conditions, 5-day forecast, hourly forecast, and radar. There are now other apps that do this better.
Developers: consider adding customization to the paid version
Super accurate weather.
I don't like the yearly subscription-based model to remove the ads. A one-time purchase would have been nicer.
That being said, I would gladly actually purchase the subscription IF the following options/functions were also made available:
1. Ability to configure the UI, specifically the order, e.g., so that we can have the hourly, 10 day forecast, radar e.g. Show up in whatever order we want when we scroll down. More efficient.
2. ***Most importantly*** - ability to disable/remove completely any weather channel videos ("news" videos etc that show up as openable when scrolling down).
3. Going off of 1 & 2 - in case it wasn't obvious- Basically complete customization of what I see when I scroll down in the app. If I am going to pay for it, I am not going to pay to see a bunch of things I don't want and/or are not relevant to me. I'd rather use another app.
4. More detailed, longer, etc., radar. (If possible)
However. Despite this. TWC has remained consistently the most accurate info I have found.
I REALLY would like to support the app. If these changes (specifically ability to customize UI), are made, I would gladly pay the yearly cost. Immediately. Until then, I see no reason to pay to remove ads when the app will still be littered with video caps. I have no interest in seeing when I scroll down.
1 of 2 Weather Apps that you only need
As I I have stated in my above title review, The Weather Channel App just rocks and we all know why! Whoever came with the idea of adding yet another cool feature to add the dates underneath what the weather is scheduled to do, I say kudos. I Love The Weather Channel. The second app that is completely a Weather app is called Weather + and that app does the same thing as the Weather Channel app, it has cool graphics and a separate page for these weather videos. On The Weather Channel app, on the main screen you have to scroll down and see images of weather news and snippets of weather video where in Weather +, there are thankfully zero Weather related videos and news on the main page. Again, these 2 weather apps are all you need for an iPhone. Have a nice day!
