Used to be better


When I first downloaded this app several years ago it used to load information much faster, and more consistently. Now, many years and updates later, it rarely even loads any information when i am connected to wifi. The app will open and load the temperature on the home (default) screen when connected to wifi, but I have to turn off the wifi on my iphone, ensure I am connected to my cellular network, and switch between the “now”, “hourly”, and “10 Day” tabs in order to get the app to load information. It started doing this over a year ago. Initially I thought my Wi-Fi connection at home was just poor, but it turns out that I have the same problem connected to any Wi-Fi signal. I have also had this problem with 2 separate iphones. I occasionally delete the app and redownload it just to see if the problem may be a fluke, but I always end up with the same problem. This used to be my favorite weather app, but now I am exploring other apps because of my frustration with this issue. I still love the weather bug app, and in my opinion it has the very best radar maps of any app available. I just hate having to go through so many steps in order to get this app to function the way it is intended to. Please fix this!!!!!

Great weather app


Got tired of the weather channel app getting slower and slower and taking forever to load and just scroll down the page so tried this and not only is it instantly quick, but put together with common sense. The location of the features were very well thought out and very easy and convenient to use. The pop up instructions are a brilliant idea. Love the fact that it has weather and traffic cams too, that i dont have to use other separate apps. Although it has news and videos the smart thing is they don’t load automatically, which i believe keeps the app fast. You have the option to start a video and that’s the smart way to do it. What’s killing the weather channel app is they don’t give you a choice and the videos run automatically slowing down the app to a crawl. Goodbye weather channel app, you just helped me free up a lot space too!



I am with others who say the app has lost some reliability. Listen if there are some regions or areas you just can’t forecast accurately, say so! I’m in an area in the Blue Ridge Mountains of NC. 3 days ago, WB showed the weather in my area to be sunny with a a temp of 40 degrees. It was pouring down snow!!! I noticed Johnson County, MS in the left hand corner just above the temp. Are you telling me that the closest radar station to my location is in Mississippi?? All my other saved locations have weather stations in the general vicinity listed.
As to the 10 Day forecast, I get it, weather changes, but wow! As others have said, it’s not reliable because it changes so much. You really can’t plan ahead, but it’s the weather. Ten days out may be asking for too much but at least be accurate at the moment and for the next 24 hours!
I have had weather bug for a long time and it used to be very accurate. I’m not sure what happened, but please try to fix it.
