  • Garbage App!

    By @Sls1908
    I can’t believe that I spent $10 for this app few years ago for it to now only be TRASH!! It’s telling me that it’s still 22 degrees outside when it’s CURRENTLY 73 degrees!!
  • iPhone X support

    By XMeegs
    Please update the app for the iPhone X
  • Pin movement

    By ds9938
    Tells me to drag pin to desired location but pin does not move.
  • Update needed

    By Drporte1
    Since I update my iPhone to the latest iOS the app opens to a black screen until it finally loads then when I tap on a city to get the forecast I get a bunch of squiggly lines at the top until it loads. The app needs some work but still is a useful tool.
  • Needs iOS 11 update

    By EdfromPA
    Weird animations. Alerts no longer reliable.
  • Was Great; Now Broken

    By Haptik_BB
    All the animations and transitions are horribly broken on iOS 11. Seems like the developers have retired from working on this app.
  • App needs to be freshened up.

    By stiger72
    I have been using this app since Ver 1.2 and as Apple has moved on with iOS updates it seems that the developer has left this what used to be an awesome app in the dust. Notifications are still received but much later after NWS sends them out. 3.0.5 was released 11/22/17 to fix the voice rate of iOS 9 which is an OS from 2 years ago. Many are on iOS 11 and since the release if iOS 11 the app UI is buggy. Hopefully this app gets some love and attention by the developers at WDT... soon.
  • Needs update

    App is buggy with iOS 11. Radar is way too sloooooow to draw.

    With the new IOS release - the app does not orient to the screen properly - there may be other issues as well!
  • App has gone downhill, not sure if it will get better

    By King_dirt
    When I first got this app, it was really really cool. However over the past years since I first got it it slowly started to go downhill. I am glad it works with voiceover, Apple screen reader, very well. However, as time has gone by, the alerts have been less and less. For example yesterday we had a bunch of rain, and another weather app told me we had a flood watch, but this one did not. I wish the developer was still working on this app, he has not been updated and I believe almost 2 years, since I OS 9. Very very sad. There are so many possibilities for this app to develop. I have many feature request in mind, but I am not sure if I want to suggest him; since this app has not been touched in a long time. The lightning alerts feature is really cool, but shouldn’t the money for those subscribe to it go towards the development of this app? I hope the app gets some love soon. I am going to have to get rid of it for now, until the alert system has been fixed, in the app given more love. I will come back to it in a while just to see if anything has been done still have my fingers crossed an app like this could go a long long way. Maybe I will post my feature requests to the developer to see if I get a direct response. I mean, do these reviews really get a read?
