  • App used to be great...

    By Running and Biking
    This app used to be the best weather app and now it crashes constantly. I can't even open it anymore and I've tried everything. Please fix the crashes and I'll give it 5 stars!
  • Motorcyclist

    Can you add a road condition for motorcycle riders? Possibly add the option under the health and activity
  • Works well, but disjointed notification/feedback

    By UncleZirky
    The basics work well, but when the app icon shows a notification, 2/3 times when I open the app (note: days may have passed before I actually open the app), there is no notification. This makes it seem like I’m being baited to open the app so it can display ads, but I’ll reserve judgement on that. If the notification is no longer relevant and removed, so should the app icon decrement the notification count. When I went to report this, I found that Feedback allows no feedback, only displays FAQ. Having given up, later I stumbled upon I think the app description that feedback should be emailed. Why isn’t that on the feedback page where Feedback sent me? Not wanting to play Whack-a-Mole anymore, decided to post here instead.
  • Try "Weather Channel Essentials"

    By KimHatesTheUpgrade
    I was unhappy with the upgrade, but it looks like there is another Weather Channel app called "Weather Channel Essentials" and it has the large / simple graphics I love.
  • Beyond frustrating

    By Thisgirlhere
    I used to love this app, it was always my go to...NOT ANYMORE, it takes forever to load, the glitches and freezing are annoying. The radar takes forever to load. PLEASE FIX THIS WHOLE APP!!!
  • So much noise

    By Salt Lake City Dub
    If I pay for an app I don't want it covered with what looks like paid content. It's full of nonsense and totally irrelevant sections that can't be removed or even moved to th bottom of the screen. Awful.
  • Only accurate a few hours ahead. Smh

    By Vaping_view
    I use this app all the time because we run a go kart track. It comes in very handy. Accept for when it calls for storms in the am and we decide to stay closed for it. Then it doesn’t storm. Then when we open in the evening it starts storming. I know this isn’t the apps fault but it’s still inaccurate. It’s only accurate maybe 4 hours ahead. Like right now. 11:44am on Sunday. It’s suppose to be mad storming. Well. It’s not. It’s sunny as can be. What gives Florida weather guys. 🙄.
  • Having issues

    By Katlynfortune
    My app sometimes takes DAYS to update the weather. It’s currently 9:20a Sunday and still has Saturday’s weather posted. Doesn’t change after restarting the app or my phone.
  • Won't update

    By Emjayatch
    Won't update even though I have the required operating system. The version I have is glitchy.
  • Older version v.s. Newer one

    By no nixkname works
    As far as I am concerned, the older app is superior to this new one. It is more user friendly and is less cluttered. I can find out the information that I want with less distraction.
