Kevin called it?


I downloaded this app for the weather. Works great for viewing current conditions, today’s forecast, 10 day forecast, and weather in one place. Other weather apps have increasingly become hard to navigate and slow. Ads for Wave 3 are easily ignored or dismissed and info loads quickly. I do wish I could pay a handful of dollars per month for ad free version but am happy with current state. I travel frequently and this app works great for weather in other geos too.

I’m back & loving WAVE app finally


i had removed this app some time ago due to multiple problems using it. Reloading this latest version today, I could not be more pleased. The best part so for is the “time stamp” on each news article / traffic report. Thank you for this user friendly app!

This app has great potential but has a few issues that should be addressed. I was looking through the missing persons page through the app hoping I could help by seeing someone I knew or might have seen only to consistently have ads pop up and crash the app a few times. Out of all places to put ads! Missing persons should not be one of those places! It almost seemed disgraceful to say the least. Besides that, I'm frequently redirected for mobile users. In a day where technology is in abundance and so seems like this wouldn't happen in 2016. That's a minor issue that shouldn't even be happening. The app also frequently crashes, usually when the pop ups come about. How do the developers not even notice this and if they do why hasn't it been addressed or fixed? To sum it up: This would be a great app but I frequently turn my Google browser for local news due the current issues this app faces. iPhone 6 user with no other issues.
