    Getting too greedy. I decided to pay for a decent weather app a few years ago and this looked like the best. It was a reasonable $10 a year, about what I'm willing to pay for a weather app. Recently there have been multiple popups trying to convince me to sign up for the premium service and it seems to include the features I thought would be there with a "paid" subscription. But it's $30 a year. Sorry, there are just too many competitors in this space for me to put up with that.

    Update: I can't get it to change from one of my favorites to my current location. If I change it to current location & close the app it goes back to one of the favorites instead of current location. Far more accurate than AccuWeather. I wish they had more seeing for their widget. I would prefer if I could customize it to be more transparent and change the colors, also extend it to be 4 x 1 instead of 3 x 1 to look better on my home screen.

    Data and maps aren't loading or loading very slowly. Issue over the last week or so. Besides this, app has become (intentionally?) cumbersome to use (free version). Ads are significantly distracting/ annoying. And for the ridiculous cost of the "premium" version makes it such that I will just go elsewhere for my weather. Sad...

    I used to love this app but every update has made it increasingly annoying to use. Having ads in an app is one thing. But these ads range from pure clickbait to outright interruptive. Worse still, it seems like the app was programmed to deliberately shift things around to shoehorn an ad inside the app, which for someone like me causes me to unintentionally tap the ad instead. That sort of programming should be illegal! The app is fine for weather but the ads are so intrusive as to ruin it.

    This app used to be really good....getting pretty irritated with it now. Since the last update on, I believe, June 20, 2022 - it takes a little over a minute to even load when I open the app. (I timed it.) Then, if there is an advisory, takes another minute or two for that to load when I click it. Radar.....same thing. Will probably look for another weather app if these issues aren't resolved soon.

    Far too many ads take up screen space for both free and premium versions of this app. And it's shocking how the iOS version is just light years better in its layout and GUI. Both Android and iOS versions prohibit end users from selecting what information panels they DON'T want to see, such as weather news articles, to save screen real estate.

    Have used this app for years but may switch to another. Constantly prompts you to get the paid version, clicking anything prompts an ad to pop up. Widgets used to have a little spot where you could refresh the weather without opening the app, but that's gone now. To update any widget, you have to fully open the app and get through the ads.

    why are lightning strikes no longer an option? Last update can't find locations in the US but I can find something in a country far away that isn't close to the same spelling. Not getting severe weather notices with them all turned on. NO FOLLOW ME TEMPERATURE! Disappeared 2 updates ago .... Again! Along with the audible severe weather alerts.

    BEWARE! Unless you pay for the subscription, they pop up notifications to watch videos about weather news across the country...MULTIPLE times per day. No way to turn this off. If I want to see weather news, I'll look it up, I don't need random notifications for things I don't care about. Also, the app itself is fairly clunky. Ads galore and hard to find info you want. Not user friendly. I'd give 0* if it was possible.

    Lost a star. Since 4/1/22 it struggles to open, it can't find the server! I'm connected to WiFi and have 4 bars but it just spins, saying connecting to server or asking me if I'm online. It's not my service because all other apps open. I did notice the issue of the ads interfering with the weather content is fixed, thank you. The ads are annoying but you still have work to do to convince me that this worth paying for. Deliver a reliable product and I'll pay to eliminate all the ads.

    The application keeps crashing and when it's not crashing it's constantly buffering. I've tried restarting my phone and uninstalling and reinstalling the app, but it works intermittently. Whenever I restart my phone the app buffers and I use to be able to go through the playstore and open the app and it would be fine. Now, with the continuous updates it made it worse. When it works it's great, but then you have to put up with all the bugs that continues to plague it what's the use in using it.

    I put up with ads that last forever that you have to sit through before each video and I put up with how slow it is to load and change screens. but now I think I've had enough of the Weather Channel app. They changed the weather radar map and it's hard to navigate and not easy to read. So I'm deleting this app that I've had for 5 years because you changed it for the worse.

    I did give you 3 stars on my last rating but now dropped you down to 2. My location doesn't stay activated. It did this on my old phone as well. I can also go all day with it saying one temperature and even sunny at night because it doesn't update properly, and says notifications turned off. I constantly have to mess with these settings. I've sent a support ticket but no one seems to care unless you're a paying customer. Disappointed.

    The app itself is OK, it's the constant notification that you can't swipe away. That's rather annoying... I don't need a constant notification of the weather condition when I got 20 widgets on my home screen that already tells me the current conditions. You're not that important Weather Channel..! And because the app is so un-intuitive I just end up blocking all their notifications because I don't know how to adjust that particular setting.

    An immediate install on every phone for years. A staple, if you will. That's what TWC used to be. Now it's just another shameless ad, begging for your money with every screen touch, like every other app now. Thanks for holding the forecast hostage. I even paid for Premium for several months, and when I turned off auto-renewal, everything immediately became an ad to return to premium, WHEN I WAS STILL PAID UP THROUGH THE MONTH. Cant wait to give a one-time $10 or $15 to a real weather app.

    EVERY update is DOWNGRADE. Recent improvements have been the radar screen being unusable due to the radar being 1/3 the size with half of the screen (bottom) being used for oversized controls and time slider. Another improvement is the auto location center when you look at a storm detail, you go back and then have to scroll back to where you were on the map before. This is dangerous if you're trying to keep someone alive and safe. Storm Radar was great, but they bought and stopped a better app

    App seems to be on a downhill slope lately, seems with every update you lose functionality and gain more ads! The change in position of the radar time is out of place on the bottom, should go back to the upper left corner. I'm with most on here, I'll be deleting the app soon!

    I have notifications turned off, everything except severe weather alerts... This app still feels the need to spam me news notifications for areas I'm not even remotely close to. Sometimes I get up to five notifications a day from this app. As an experiment, I turned every notification setting off in the app... It still gave me totally useless notifications. Oh boy, flooding in Florida! That must be relevant 1500 miles away! These ads are just intrusive and annoying.
