Couple things it could use


Not a bad app. Works smoothly with no crashes. But it is missing two key things. First, videos need to be "stamped" with a date and title. I've no idea if the video is current or three days old. And in fact this Monday morning I figured out at the end at the video was from Saturday.

The other thing is a "text" forecast. If I want to know what the weather is going to be like today, I want to read a paragraph that describes it. Seeing the stats of a snow cloud, the dew point, and the humidity doesn't help me to determine how tall my boots should be. Give me a sentence or two describing what the day will be like.

Fix those two things and you've got yourself a four- or five-star app.

Good local weather app

Thunder One

Neatly designed app with features such as social media, photos, radar, forecast, and live viewing at certain news hours. The app could use more features to set itself apart from others such as average and record high / low temps. The only real bummer with this app is an unadvertised in-app purchase for $4.99 to enable the NWS safety alerts! If not for that, I would give it a higher rating.

This app crashes my iPhone 4


I am running ios 7.1 on my iPhone 4 and the iPhone completely freezes up when I use this app. This is not the first time that this has happened.

After trying everything else I needed to do a hard reset to get back to the home screen.

I decided that enough is enough and I deleted this app from my iPhone 4 a few minutes ago.
