What is a "News Station Alert"?


We download the app to our phones and iPads. The purpose was to check the weather. We also got it for weather alerts, for example tornado warnings, hurricane tracking, flooding, severe thunder storms, and (every so often) snow.

Over the last year, the push alerts have become ridiculous!

Merriam-Webster defines "alert" as being "watchful and prompt to meet danger or emergency."

Today's weather alert was "Traveling to NC or GA? Von has your forecast." What!?! This is what I open the app to learn. I do not want my phones an iPad having push notices stating "A News Station Alert has arrived" to tell me that it will be sunny or drizzling or that - shocker - it will be cold in the winter and hot in the summer.

Stop sending these type of alerts! It has become a joke in our house! An alert arrives and, instead of thinking it's a severe storm or tornado, we joke that it's an alert to the wonderful weather! This completely defeats the purpose and effectiveness of an ALERT!!

The upsides of the app: layered radar, decent forecasting, and local weather when you travel out of state.

Ads before important alerts


I hated getting a breaking weather alert and then being forced to watch a 15 sec video ad before I could see the weather information. I can understand seeing video ads during normal viewing but not with a breaking weather alert. Hey a tornado is bearing down on your location but first let’s look at some carpet. I deleted the app from my device.

Crashes and Glitches


I have used this app for several years and no problems. This new update is useless for me. It crashes all the time. I'm running iOS 9.35. I wish I had never updated. Please fix. Thanks for your attention to this problem.
