Pretty awful.


I gave two stars for future radar feature. That’s kind of generous in my opinion. I’m forced to use this app for the future radar feature because I haven’t found a decent app that has a future radar to use instead. The app lags horribly, especially within the future radar screen, if I zoom in and then out or vice versa on the map the overlays disappear. Oh, also, there’s more non-weather related and non-essential content than I know what to do with in this app and it slows it all down remarkably. Let’s not mention how politically biased some of the videos are on this app. I come to the weather channel for the weather not someone’s political opinions. And the weather forecasts...🤦🏻‍♀️ well, they never match what’s on the actual weather channel on TV and never match the National Weather Service’s alerts. My family and I are constantly sharing different forecasts and all from the same weather service! I mean... we all know weather isn’t 100% predictable but.. at least make sure the same forecasts are out for all of your channels and apps? Just a suggestion.

Easier navigation needed


I wish it was a little easier to navigate and find the information I need quicker. The main thing I go to weather apps is to find out how the weather will be for the day and the week. For first time users easy navigation is the key to get them hooked. As time passes they will begin to explore all the neat tools you offer. It’s seems to me I see the day’s forecast and when I try to look for the week I’m bombarded by these crazy breakdown by the hour and pollen in the air , barometer pressures, and I have to scroll for what seems like a eternity to get out of all these crazy breakdowns for just ONE day! and frankly by that time I’m exausted!! And I leave the app. Accuweather on the other hand has tabs which I LOVE and easy to find at the top of the page. Makes it easy to access the information 90% of the population generally needs. Simple tabs and all the extra info is within those tabs as opposed to spread all over the page and having to scroll on and on to move on to the next thing.

Great weather app!

Does a nice accurate job. It had everything until about 2 weeks ago when suddenly, the temperature badge stopped being displayed on my iPhone’s home screen. The temperature badge allowed me to glance at my iPhone and see what the current temperature was without even opening The Weather app. Additionally, I’ve noticed that my name disappears everyday under the settings menu within the app. I add my name and save it and the next day, it’s gone. I checked ALL my settings within the app, I’m running the latest iOS version, and I’ve checked my notifications setting on my iPhone. I have emailed the app support, but still nothing. I received an automated reply telling me that their support people have received my email about these issues and that “they’ll get right on it”. That was about 5 days ago. Problems still exist and NO one has contacted me. This app is losing stars everyday.
