Negative review Inaccurate Forcast by anonym
Before I deleted this app, I wanted to make sure I reviewed it. I live in Michigan where weather changes, we count on apps like this to let us know what to expect. The weather is never right. For example, this morning 0% chance of snow, I look out my window and sure enough its snowing hard. Maybe I'm being brutal. Don't claim to be a weather app, then never predict anything right. If you put 15% chance of anything you can bet its going be wrong every time. 1/5
Negative review Down hill fast by anonym
Its been a long time since this app has worked properly. It used to give great information and videos. Its been on test videos for months. Now there is annoying pop ups that cant be skiped every time i open the app, and it has poor gps readings, i now have to do things manually. Other apps work much better at this point. 1/5
Negative review Awkward app packed full of adds. by anonym
I liked the older version better it had nice easy to see graphics. The new version is harder to read and navigate, and it has a bunch of advertisements and useless links. 2/5
Neutral review Needs widget inprovement by anonym
You have the worst widget among weather apps. App is very good and your data is the most accurate, but I use other weather app for widget. 3/5
Negative review Horribl changes by anonym
It wasn't great to begin with, but the new changes are absolutely horrible. It takes 5x as long to find the info you actually want (forecast), and the locations are always messed up. They obviously don't use focus groups before implementing big changes like this? 1/5
Positive review Very good and accurate by anonym
Got it for Winter Storm Jonas and wad pleaded with the alerts and the videos. It was pretty accurate with accumulations for my area and had real time alerts. Like it. 4/5
Negative review Terrible by anonym
You turned a great app into absolute garbage. I receive weather alerts even when I turn them off, sometimes even receive two of the same alert at once. I am no longer notified for severe weather in my area, but I know a hurricane was on its way to an island thousands of miles from me. The severe weather icon isn't accessible from the widget anymore, the app has to be opened. Uninstall. 1/5
Positive review Great for work by anonym
As a OTR Truck driver, this app helps me with real time weather update and helps me to plan my trip better when it comes down to weather 5/5

Wether bug way better and smaller memory theft and wether bug has whot this app dosnt lick piturs and videos for ech location set in app all over there city so can keep track of family videos and notification 3/5
Positive review Pretty good app. by anonym
However would prefer ads you have to be small and at the bottom. Also it should notice my location setting that i have no need fir ski forecast, it just takes up space with usless info for that topic. To bad i am not a app developer i could tweek lots of apps. Any chance of the area allergy cindition actually telling what allergens are registering? 5/5
Positive review Awsome by anonym

Neutral review by anonym
New update keeps rebooting my phone every time I open it. Unusual for this app as it has always been a great reliable app. Please fix. For now I either have to revert back to old version or uninstall 3/5
Negative review Visibility by anonym
What happened to visibility? I would like to know what it is if traveling. My husband still has his on his phone! Not happy about the changes! 2/5
Negative review No radar map. by anonym
Just since the new update, the option for a future radar reading is missing even when my location is on. I really like the weather channel app. But this might be a deal breaker for me. I travel alot and rely on the radar to show current rain/snow radar readings. I uninstalled and reinstalled just last night. And still no option to look at a future radar. The old version of the app had this opt Very disappointed. I will uninstall the weather channel and make weather bug my new app until the problem is fixed. 2/5
Negative review F A I L !!!! Notification icon is 100% Worthless by anonym
Doesn't follow your location.....unless you leave your GPS on. Who does that? Older versions worked fine without having to leave GPS on. In fact the tablet version still does. I have to constantly go in to settings every time I want to check my location and turn the ongoing notification on. It also will not auto update temp without GPS on. This is nauseating. Why do all these app makers need to know where we are 24/7 anyway? 1/5
Neutral review Crashes everyday by anonym
The weather channel used to be my favorite app, but I came to the store today to UNinstall it today because it has been crashing at least once a day, sometimes several times per day for over a month. I have sent in the reports when asked to hoping to get an update to stop this... but nothhing. Too bad, because I find the weather channel to be more accurate that the other weather services. 3/5
Negative review Annoying! by anonym
The weather is usually pretty accurate for my area but that's the best I can say. NOT ONE of my notifications are selected to run but yet I continuously get notifications ALL NIGHT AND MORNING LONG. Like the one that just woke me up at 4am!!! 1/5

Btw U need 2 fix background auto start its causing battery drain. 3/5
Negative review Won't stop alerting me that it's raining by anonym
I have real time alerts completely turned off. Have removed, deleted cache and reinstalled. It won't stop and I don't care if it's sprinkling. Update: now it is snowing in other states multiple times a day. All notifications turned off on widget and app. Sorry, have to lower rating... 1/5
Neutral review Changed from 5 stars to 2 by anonym
Took this rating from 2 to 3. Fixed a fee issues in the latest update but the direction of this app seems to be moving in a direction that doesn't work for me. 3/5

Negative review Bring back tide chart and ocean/wave conditions by anonym
I live in Hawaii and am quite upset that the ocean and tide charts have been replaced by ski conditions. Now this app is pretty useless. 1/5
Positive review Ski Slope Report in FL ?? by anonym
Why was the "Beach And Sea Conditions" report dropped and replaced with "Ski Slope Report" (which just shows "no data available" every day anyway...yeah, no kidding!) for those of us who live in South Florida? Information which was useful replaced by something absolutely useless. 4/5
