I think the app is great I think it runs great I think it’s easy to use my only criticism is of course we know you have to have ads and sponsorship however living in Florida we count on and rely on this app , it is the only one that works during the hurricanes and we have no power during the hurricanes to charge our phones so watching a five minute commercial when you’re in serious danger like when we are having storms, it endangers lives (your house is shaking feels like it’s about to fall down and you have to watch a commercial about a car ) and I wish during emergency times they would not run ads especially during the hurricanes and the outages in Central Florida , We are using life saving battery on our phone and relying on the news to direct us during the storms it’s not fair to try to sell us things at those times ! Please stop running ads during hurricanes and power outages during a state of emergency in general !

Here’s my 2018 update... ( since you asked)


Hello Wesh. Developers

Update: The FAS adds are annoying! I realize they sponsor. We use this app everyday, so please give us the option to skip them. At this point for me at least, the adds are working against them. I will NOT be going to FAS!

I liked the other alerts from the older weather app better, and easier to work with. It worked without location services, and gave me a weather voice alert once it was set up.

Otherwise the app responds well, and it’s fast.
Keep up the good work guys😀👍

I see all of our feedback helped make the app better.
The weather videos are back, the adds are much shorter, and I notice today the option to skip the longer adds too. Wonderful! Allelujah!🙏😅

I hope you also added the weather alerts by location like the old app had. I’ve not checked yet.

Good job guys & gals. Thanks so much!



It’s very reassuring to know I can find any all stories happening in my area and all the way to the coast. I can’t always catch the evening broadcast, but I can always check into the app. Emergency alerts, weather, major crimes, sports, special interest, arts and happenings and all the stories that bring a smile to my face. I feel like they’ve tried very hard to give the big picture. What more could I ask for?!! Just keep up the good work!!!
