Too many ads


The app is ok and gives some pretty good info. I also like the alerts but the freakin ads drive me nuts. There's an ad on each page which means I won't EVER upgrade the original WAFB app for news. I prefer not to be bombarded with useless information constantly! I plan to delete this app!

Late timing


You guys need to fix the timing on the notifications for lightning and rain. When it pops up lightning is located 4.6 miles away but starts flashing like its 4.6 feet away there is a problem.

Quit pushing this app during the news


Every day when watching the news on WAFB the two meteorologists push installing this app to get the "latest weather" updates.

The app is a total joke. Each time there's an update you're forced to watch 30 second ads before you can see anything. Static ads are fine, although you'd think between online ads, broadcast ads, and revenue from cable services that an ad on a weather app would be superfluous, but the ads in this app are full screen and no way to exit out of them.

This app is nothing more than a blatant money grab providing very little useful content that can't be obtained elsewhere faster and more accurately without the necessity to line the pockets of WAFB to watch a radar.
