    Landscape photography can be ruined when clouds roll in. To ensure you're getting the best shots, you need to keep an eye on the nearby and incoming weather. With a satellite view of future times, it's not a surprise when its sunny one moment and cloudy 10 minutes later.

    It is best app when you move from weather condition to other. It exactly tells you about the exact weather condition very early.

    Summer can be extremely unpredictable. One day it could be cool and breezy, the other feel like you're in an oven. If you're looking to avoid extreme temperatures, it's always good to be informed of the next big shift. With 24/7 alerts, you'll always be one step ahead and know how to prepare.

  • Weather Channel App Great Tool for Travel Jul 10, 2020

    By In the Dsrk
    My wife and I having to travel throughout the state of Texas, occasionally with our children,results in many changes and fluctuations in the weather. We can be in central Texas in San Antonio with high temperatures and strong wind (allergens: dust & pollen) will change dramatically as we venture into East Texas surrounding Houston with lower temperatures, but with a major increase in relative humidity and the dew point (allergens: mold and grasses). Having a family with a variety of allergies, compounded with the need to stay vigilant about the novel Coronavirus(CoVid-19), can leave some of us concerned for our health if we do not prepare for the changing weather. Another major advantage in having The Weather Channel are the weather alerts warning us of severe weather. We have on several occasions received alerts/bulletins on severe weather outside of our region but within areas where we have family that are elderly. We were able to call them and advise them to take the necessary precautions. This has been a Godsend. The ability to see up-to-date forecasts of any city or region on The Weather Channel allows us to plan specific activities and outings, while taking the necessary precautions.

    Excellent app and the structure is pretty nice, too for usability purposes. I only have a few issues with the load time and it gets a little glitchy on occasion, which gets annoying when I just want to take a quick glance at the weather only to have to wait for the app to load, glitch for a few seconds, and then loads. Overall, a short wait time but an eternity in tech time. I enjoy it enough to get the premium version and eagerly await updates and maybe a dark mode to remove the bright white.

    The Weather Channel App used to be a great App. Now I find it difficult to even open. I touch to open and it immediately closes, so I have to tap a second time. It then takes 20-30 seconds to open. Once the app is open an Upgrade to Premium screen appears first (for a fee). It freezes as I’m using it and I have to close and reopen to get it to work. See steps above that have to be repeated when it freezes. It is slow to respond to screen swiping or moving from one to another. When viewing the radar section in the app and animating the forecast there was a digital clock showing time as it advances. This is no longer available. I’m constantly barraged with adds and upgrade requests to the premium version. If I move out of the app and come back, it is frozen and Will close by itself forcing me to re-open. See steps above for re-opening the app. All in all what once was my go to for temp, precip, forecast, and other weather information this has become a lesson in frustration and not an enjoyable experience. This has been happening not only on my phone but with others I’ve discussed this with. Although I’ve updated the app and my phone as well, it seems to be getting worse and worse.

    I own a manufacturing business in the South. Since we work in a mostly open warehouse the weather is very important there was a time when y’all had sections of importance. Videos: At one time the primary videos offered were segments of weather throughout the country. i . e. Northeast, southeast, Midwest, Southwest, and Northwest. Now it’s a melange of Weather top story, then somewhat insignificant stories with background music and subtitles of stories not necessarily pertinent to U.S weather on a daily basis. It seems you have to forage through the pooo to get what your looking for. There was also monthly data that showed averages for one’s area and where we are compared to the average on a rolling average. That’s completely gone. Nowadays it’s the basic local facts and sensationalism. I’m afraid that you don’t know how to get it back. Lastly, I find it interesting that your posting a 4.6 average when the Lions share of comments are negative. Himmmm Math channel? Update; I had to correct my score. I originally gave it 2 Stars. Once it showed up it was 4 stars. Very interesting, maybe it answers my score question. So now I gave it a 1. If you see any more than 1 star? It wasn’t me.

    The Weather Channel app is great for weather--and so much more! The forecasts are relatively accurate (considering the unpredictability of weather), the additional information (dew point, pollen count, etc.) is useful, the meteorologists are knowledgeable and personable, and the video content is informative, eye-opening, entertaining, and educational. In fact,, I sometimes use the app solely to watch the videos. Overall, fantastic! The premium version is low-cost and totally worth it!!

    Thank you for keeping us up to date on the weather. I found it a problem when we had a hurricane and lost all power and internet. I don’t love the ads but when you don’t have internet and power you are slowly watching it skip and skip and you can’t actually get to the weather until it’s completely over you. In those situations it is very frustrating. I don’t however want to pay for premium to get more accurate and up to date weather. I would rather get it anyways. Most professions give their 100%. I wish you had a solution for when people’s lives matter in such a horrible situation to have it more assessable. When I have internet I completely understand the need to pay for your broadcast with ads but maybe in the area that has devastation we can skip them. 5 sec of ads takes 5 minutes. When your roof is off and you need to know when it’s going to rain the last thing you want to hear is an ad. Now that I have said all that, I appreciate so much the people who go out to tell us what is happening. I watch all night during Laura. I couldn’t watch during delta. I was just too exhausted from the damage. But keeping us up to date is such a wonderful provision and we thank you.
  • Weather variety multiple locations Feb 24, 2018

    By master red fox
    I have had this app for awhile and use it to not only get local weather but weather for various locations for my son's work travel as surprisingly conditions vary greatly within a 50 mile area which one needs to know if commuting. I get road conditions and various alerts ( rain, snow, lighting, etc) per area. All helpful. Last year because of the reports I got, I saved my son an unnecessary trip because of the weather report. I enjoy the various videos also. I am editing review because of the problems I have been having with the app which appears to be all over where this app is used. I contacted support and only got a service standard reply which is basically sent by a computer. I am highly disappointed that I can’t get the app to work anymore because it was very helpful when it worked. I am not sure if the malfunction is due to the updates on IOS which also requires apps to also update. Whatever the reason, there should be a way to correct problem with app especially when it effects all means of use on phones, tablets and computers.
  • New Update Nonsense Aug 29, 2018

    By R50an
    I don’t know why the weather channel felt the need to completely overhaul the layout and design of their app. The previous version, which I had used daily for the last handful of years, was by all accounts a perfect weather app. Generally speaking, the main reason to change the layout of an app is to make it more efficient for the user. Unfortunately, the final product of this new design has done the exact opposite. The “upgraded” version of this app is an absolute pain to navigate and offers almost no benefits for the user. The most striking change made to the app is undoubtedly the bright white background. It’s baffling that people still think the bright white screen is an upgrade. Several of my other most used apps over the years have gone with the white background and I have had to delete several of them as a result. Unfortunately, I will likely do the same for the weather channel app if they don’t change or at least offer an alternative to the white background. It is blinding to my precious eyes!

    I love this app I have been with the Weather Channel for over 20 years on different devices. There's no way that I would ever change. This app has given me all I needed when moving from Colorado to Virginia. Let alone the videos are informative and the app is so easy to use. Just a superb Weather Channel app and they are #1 in the TV Industry as well. When a Weather crisis happens this is the app to depend on time and time again. I surely hope to be with them in another 20 years Lord willing.

    Zero accuracy. Here's an example, daily and hourly predictions are changing from one extream to the next. 2pm would be 90% chance of rain, rain wouldn't fall for 2 days. The radar will show light to medium rain in my location, but the sun would be "shinning bright like a diamond". This app has me lying to the kids when they want to know the weather outlook. Had enough today, cutting ties with false info, which is actually in abundance these days.👋

    With the updates to add, the application is near unusable in it's current state. It appears to be an intentional change to strongarm the user into purchasing their new "premium" tier of the app. I, personally, refuse to support any business who makes choices like this. The Weather Channel app was already found to be selling troves of data on its users to make money, on top of the ads that had existed. With this new change, they have lost a long time fan of the application.
  • Used to be good, but now might delete it! Jan 25, 2021

    By Clay Carveth Dain
    This weather app is significantly more detailed and accurate than the pre-installed Apple weather app. It has been my weather app of choice for years. But now, they’ve really amped up all the ads. I could maybe look over that if I didn’t end up getting notification after notification of these random stupid “news” stories that so have no interest in. There’s no way to turn off these notifications and I can get up to like 10 notifications a day about random stuff that isn’t even weather related the vast majority of the time. When in the app I have to scroll so far down past so many ads to try to see all the different weather information available. It’s very frustrating and I get that it’s a free app, but with the pandemic causing a lot less travel for myself, I think I might go ahead and delete this now annoying app even though I really liked it because I’d rather just use the regular weather app that has minimal information but no annoying notifications or ads, and if I need a radar or something I’ll just go online to my local news websites and view their weather information. If you could just AT LEAST turn off those useless notifications that I never said yes to, that would be great, but unfortunately there is no option for me to do that so as long as I have the app installed I will continue to receive these useless news notifications more frequently than I am provided any weather notifications.

    The widget is useless. Always says "no weather data available". Doesn't matter if I'm on wifi or data. If you tap on the widget it opens the app, then the widget will show the weather for awhile, but that defeats the point of having a widget. And after a while it shows the same "no data" message.
  • Good Info BUT Ads TOO Intrusive Jun 5, 2020

    By StollFamily
    First, the information for the current and near future weather from this app is as good as any other weather app and probably a little more timely. It is my preferred weather app and has been for quite a while. To be fair, sometimes it can be very wrong, but 9+ of 10 times it is reliable which is better than other apps. However, the latest few app designs have me so frustrated with the over intrusive positions of the ads. I understand the purpose for having ads...I’m cheap and don’t want to pay, so I accept that I must look at ads to compensate. No problem. Put the big ad first so I’m force to look at it every time. But then let me scroll off of it to see the weather info. In this current app version, I find myself constantly scrolling and having to search for the info I want to see. I know it is there somewhere, but I tend to miss it or just don’t see it through all of the ads. It is too much that I’m not using the app as frequently as I used to...which means I’m not looking at the ads...which I think defeats the purpose. Again I don’t mind having to look at ads, and sometimes i get something that interests me and I even click on them, but this app is supposed to be a weather app, for weather information, and not an ad app with some weather info sprinkled in between. For me 4.5 stars for the info, but 1 star for the app design as it makes me not want to use the app.

    By Vance Barker
    This app has good features and is quite informative. However, it's not very accurate. One minute it'll show a 100% chance of thunderstorms and .5 inches of rain all in one hour! 5 minutes later, that chance will have dropped down to 50% and .03 inches in that hour, and I'll have cancelled all of my plans because of a thunderstorm that was coming my way. Get more accurate and I'll raise my rating.
  • Hilariously inaccurate-Devs are gaming themselves out of a job Jan 27, 2021

    By Joceanblue
    When this app reports the weather, it always chooses the incorrect location. Even though I give full location functionality. This is not new, I’ve been manually correcting this app for a couple years, ever since it was downgraded. But now there is a new hilarious “feature”. When you click on the location it incorrectly has you located at, it asks if this is the correct location. If you click “No” it takes you to a menu to select where you actually are located, then takes you to a subsequent menu to confirm what the problem is, such as “Incorrect location”. Once you select the problem, there is NO SUBMIT BUTTON!!!! Your only choice is to select “back” until you arrive at the same incorrect location again. BUT, IT GETS BETTER!!! If you click on the location, and where it asks if this is the correct location you select “yes”, IT SUBMITS AUTOMATICALLY RIGHT THERE AND THANKS YOU FOR YOUR FEEDBACK!!! This means the devs are covering up their failed coding by allowing only for positive feedback, sending incorrect and inaccurate positive location metrics back to the business folks who have know idea their app is actually completely broken. Wish I could be a fly on the wall when the SVP of whatever of the Weather Channel finds out the guys they overpaid to make their app literally embedded in the app a feature that only allows positive feedback, and literally prevents submission of location inaccuracies.

    I have used this app for years now and it's been great but all of a sudden it isnt wanting to work right, it never loads and I can never see the hourly forecast. I have to delete it and redownload it everytime I want to see the forecast. Moving on... trying a different weather app. If they don't fix this problem I wouldn't recommend it but if they fix it then 5 stars all the way across the board but until then you get 1.
  • Ads Became Too Much Dec 23, 2020

    By gmm43
    I used to solely rely on this app for my weather, but when they introduced a premium version of the app, they started including ads to promote the premium version. At first, I decided it was no big deal, surely after a few months of promoting the new premium version, they would roll back the intrusive ads. This was not the case. Every time I open the app, an ad for the premium version pops up. I close the ad and click on the radar... and another ad for the premium version pops up. It’s constant and annoying. If I haven’t upgraded to the premium version yet after having the basic version for so long, I’m obviously not interested. I dread needing to look up the weather. It seems the developers are purposefully trying to make the basic version unappealing so that I have to buy the premium. I started looking into other apps, but the company that provides next best weather app has some ethical issues, so I put off downloading it. I’ve finally hit the breaking point though. I will not buy the premium version, especially after the developers have made the basic version irritating to use, so I just downloaded the other company’s app and I will be deleting this app after I post this review. You’re going to lose more customers than you’ll gain premium version customers if you keep this up. No one wants to pay extra just to look up the weather.
  • Apr 27, 2021

    By Habenero Reaper
    Too many ads, not accurate. I didn't realize how much the weather channel was hurting financially until I downloaded this app. There's a popup ad at nearly every screen unless you "pay" for premium. I understand the need for ads to keep aps free, but this one is without a doubt amongst the worst. I might be able to tolerate it a bit if it were accurate, but again there are many weather aps out there that are more accurate.

Unfortunately, the final product of this new design has done the exact opposite. The “upgraded” version of this app is an absolute pain to navigate and offers almost no benefits for the user. The most striking change made to the app is undoubtedly the bright white background. It’s baffling that people still think the bright white screen is an upgrade. Several of my other most used apps over the years have gone with the white background and I have had to delete several of them as a result. Unfortunately, I will likely do the same for the weather channel app if they don’t change or at least offer an alternative to the white background. It is blinding to my precious eyes!

    I love this app I have been with the Weather Channel for over 20 years on different devices. There's no way that I would ever change. This app has given me all I needed when moving from Colorado to Virginia. Let alone the videos are informative and the app is so easy to use. Just a superb Weather Channel app and they are #1 in the TV Industry as well. When a Weather crisis happens this is the app to depend on time and time again. I surely hope to be with them in another 20 years Lord willing.
  • New Interface Never Loads Jan 12, 2019

    By Fofiluna
    I have relied on the weather channel apps for weather since I got my first iPhone 3g. I pay the subscription fee to not deal with commercials. Which by the way was initially a lifetime buy and changed to yearly. Since this new interface update 90% of the time the app won’t load past the blue flash screen and spinning circle. I have an iPhone X and my iOS is up to date. I have sent several notifications into their help center and after months the issue is still not fixed. Thank god I never deleted the old weather maxx app off my phone. It still loads EVERY time I open it. But it ticks me off that I am paying for a basically useless subscription. Also the Watch app was buggy to start with and now hasn’t worked or loaded the weather in months. I resorted to Carrot weather for my watch. Frustrated as a long time customer they can’t squash this bug and that they released this change without really having it ready or thinking of their audience.
  • Essential Aug 29, 2018

    By K Rae Reed
    I’m a pilot so my life revolves around the weather. I don’t just look at the weather, I live IN the Weather. The professional meteorologists at the Weather Chanel give you the best you can get from the same raw sources available to me as a pilot. I check the Weather Chanel app more than any other app on my phone. They do an outstanding job explaining important concepts which give you the How And Why things work with the weather. I am a flight instructor and one of the first things I ask my new students is if they have the Weather Chanel app so they can track radar and see current weather unfold. I also assign for them to watch Weather Underground as much as possible. I learn something new from them every night. I admire every one of your on air meteorologists and kudos to the crew behind the scenes. There is someone behind the camera in the hurricane to thank. You give your all and have given your lives too. Thank you for all you do from a huge fan.
  • Thank you Oct 28, 2020

    By laurareviews
    Thank you for keeping us up to date on the weather. I found it a problem when we had a hurricane and lost all power and internet. I don’t love the ads but when you don’t have internet and power you are slowly watching it skip and skip and you can’t actually get to the weather until it’s completely over you. In those situations it is very frustrating. I don’t however want to pay for premium to get more accurate and up to date weather. I would rather get it anyways. Most professions give their 100%. I wish you had a solution for when people’s lives matter in such a horrible situation to have it more assessable. When I have internet I completely understand the need to pay for your broadcast with ads but maybe in the area that has devastation we can skip them. 5 sec of ads takes 5 minutes. When your roof is off and you need to know when it’s going to rain the last thing you want to hear is an ad. Now that I have said all that, I appreciate so much the people who go out to tell us what is happening. I watch all night during Laura. I couldn’t watch during delta. I was just too exhausted from the damage. But keeping us up to date is such a wonderful provision and we thank you.
  • Good overall but needs improvement Jan 31, 2019

    By HenryAppleuser123
    I use to enjoy the app and most importantly the interactive map. I really like it because not only can you read the weather, but you can also visualize it and I think that brings a new way of informing someone when looking at the weather. I think this is important because it could possibly help someone better understand what they are looking at and it also serves for educational purposes and that goes a long way when helping someone understand the intended message that trying to be sent. You never want any miscommunications. Anyway, I like the app overall but with the recent update, the layers of the interactive map now cover the whole screen and I find that kind of confusing and bothersome. For example, the temperature layer now covers the entire map instead of just the land masses. I’m my opinion, I think it was better before when it only covered the land masses and that applies for all the other layers like UV index etc. So if you can change it back to that, that would be great. Thank you for your time and keep up with the great work. Go weather channel.
  • It’s a good app but theirs one thing... May 27, 2020

    By itzgmoney
    The app is amazing and I check it about five times a day to always know if the weather is gonna be good or bad for the day. Also during the coronavirus time it tells you how many cases are in your county. The radar is also very good. But the one bad thing is when you are looking at the hourly forecast and it’s says it going to rain in the afternoon you want to know when it’s going to rain exactly right? Well they did make that a feature where you can look at the weather for the next 15 minutes and I thought that would be pretty cool to have. But they made it where you can only get it in a thing called premium. It 30 bucks a year. And in my mind that is a lot of money and all I want to see is the weather. Also if there gonna charge that much money minds well just make it so once you spend the money you get it for life. If they would make it one payment for life or cheaper than 30 bucks a year (a lot cheaper) then they would get a 5 star review from me. But besides that I think it’s a great app. Please make cheaper
  • Widget glitching Oct 18, 2018

    By sgwilso4
    Since I have searched and searched and can't find a way to contact the weather channel, here's a review with my issues. Since the latest update my widget in the Notification Center hasn't been updating properly. It will continue to have a "current temperature" from sometime earlier in the day. Even if I click on it and open the app, the current temp will not change. Also, on the note of the widget, why in the world when you click on the current temperature does it take you to the "daily" view? Why doesn't it just take you to the home page of the current location's weather conditions? There is a button in the widget for radar, daily, and hourly - tapping on the current temp should take you to the main screen for your location. Love this app but it's frustrating to have something not working properly and have no way to contact the company about it. The feedback section is just questions and answers, but nowhere to actually submit feedback or submit your own question or issue.
  • Not accurate, missing features Jul 28, 2018

    By Cskuva
    First and foremost, all the bells and whistles in the world don’t make up for the fact that the weather forecasts aren’t usually close. Except, perhaps, for the temp, weather isn’t in ballpark until one hour before, which isn’t really much of a forecast. Not sure you can blame global warming for all of this. Second, if you going to add features, please focus less on videos and cryptic layers on the maps. (The older version of the app was match easier to figure out. Please go back to that version.). Instead, please add humidity percentage and barometric pressure to the hourly page. With regards to barometric readings, it would be useful to add and up/down arrow to indicate rising or falling pressure, which is far more useful than pressure values alone. Finally, the app provides a feedback “link”, but this link only takes you to an FAQ page, with no way to actually provide app feedback. Prior design of app was more useful and accurate. Just goes to show that you shouldn’t update an app simp,y because you can...
  • Local on the 8’s Oct 9, 2018

    By KZink
    I have loved the weather channel since local on the 8’s. My sister and I would watch as kids to see if we could wear capris in the spring. (Temperature has to be above 65 degrees.)You are still my go to for weather everyday. Your information, radar tracking, and rain alerts are all very helpful. The only reason I give a 4 out of 5 is I’m not a fan of the stark white background. The pictures of the outdoor scenes in the background before this update were quite lovely to open up to in the morning. It made me look forward to getting to know my weather. While the white is clean it just feels cold. The line graph when you open up the app is cool but I find it more informative if the temp numbers were bigger and you could scroll down to see your hourly Temp change rather than clicking through the different sections. Moral of the story coming from a BFA who loves art: bring back the pictures. It makes the people feel good.
  • Newest App Version Stinks Sep 18, 2018

    By Sir Wiley
    I used to be a Weather App junkie, checking the app multiple times a day. It was easy to use and find all of the information such as 15-day forecasts, wind forecasts, etc. But the newest update stinks. Yes, you can still find the same information, but it is harder to access. I’m not a fan of the wavy lines (data graphs); they are annoying and not very useful. To me, these data graphs stretch out my ability to quickly see the forecast, whereas the previous version seemed more concise. I used to be able to switch to saved locations just by swiping left or right. But the Weather Channel app got rid of the swipe-to-a-saved-location feature. The description of the update says it has been completely reimagined. I say, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” To be honest, I’ve switched back to using the Apple weather app that came loaded on my iPhone as I find it easier to view the forecast at a glance.
  • Getting closer, needs a few more tweaks Oct 7, 2018

    By Staciemagril
    In general, I like the updated app. It feels less cluttered and has information more relevant for me. That said, the app could use a little more tweaking to get it just right. Here’s what I’d like to see: 1) I’m glad you made the weekly forecast icons a little brighter, but they are still hard to see at a glance. Generally, when I open the app, what I’m looking for is a very quick at-a-glance weeklong forecast. That should be the most important info presented on the home page. The thin sans-serif font is pretty, but it’s too thin and makes it hard to see the info I want quickly. 2) The trending chart is a distraction for me. I thought I’d like it, but in reality, I don’t use it and find it a distraction. 3) How do I find a 15-day forecast? I can’t seem to find that anymore, and I miss it. In general, I’m really liking the new app, and hope to see continued tweaks to get it all dialed in.
  • Update- Loved this app until recently Jun 1, 2018

    By Liz Fed
    After writing the review below, I finally just deleted the app and then redownloaded/installed. Now, it us working as perfectly as it ever did. The only reason I am not rating 5 stars is because while I was having problems, I searched for a way to contact someone for help and found none. The website has a “Feedback” section but there is no forum to leave or submit questions. It is basically just an FAQ section, which did not help resolve my issue in any way. Previous post - I have not been able to get the app to fully boot up on my iPhone 8 for a week now. I have been an avid user of the weather Channel app since the first iPhone came out. I use it daily temperature really like the hourly forecast and they go run forecast. But since it does not seem to be functioning with the Current iOS I am forced to download and begin using AccuWeather or some other app. Too bad
  • Love it! But a few things could be updated Jul 28, 2020

    By AnnaD05
    I absolutely love this weather app. I love how in the new update it tells you when it’s going to rain which makes it easier so I don’t have to guess anymore. I live in Florida so it’s a big help, especially in the summer since it rains almost every day. I really also enjoy watching the videos because it’s kind of like a learning experience for me. One flaw about this app is that when I’m viewing the future radar it doesn’t show what the actual storms look like and it also shows them moving in one direction when they’re actually moving in a different one. The other flaw is that again with the radar when in viewing in current time it doesn’t show me what direction the storms are moving in,( like north, northeast, west etc.) Overall I do love this app but I do feel that some of its features could be updated.
  • Apr 27, 2021

    By Jason Evans
    Excellent app and the structure is pretty nice, too for usability purposes. I only have a few issues with the load time and it gets a little glitchy on occasion, which gets annoying when I just want to take a quick glance at the weather only to have to wait for the app to load, glitch for a few seconds, and then loads. Overall, a short wait time but an eternity in tech time. I enjoy it enough to get the premium version and eagerly await updates and maybe a dark mode to remove the bright white.
  • WORST UPDATE EVER! Dec 13, 2018

    By Brandee16
    Please bring back the previous version! I’m not great with technology, but I was able to quickly move about the old version and find everything I wanted. After months of trying to use this new version I still cannot find the almanac and historical data, the Marine forecast, and many other things I wanted to check on. I have tried through your FAQs but I cannot find the “more” or “almanac” buttons on my screen ANYWHERE to access the additional info. In the previous version this info was all on one screen! It was so easy to flip among the different locations to see what the current weather was where family members live. Now I have to do 2 or 3 movements to achieve the same thing. I have found NOTHING to be better in this new version. You are too worried about adding things like tracking instances of colds and flu that will be so inaccurate as to be worthless. REALLY, how many people will notify you, how many are self-diagnosed! 90% of people I know claimed to have the flu last winter, but only two (out of about 50) were diagnosed by a doctor. I am using an iPad and the current iOS.
  • I liked the old App better! Dec 14, 2018

    By ArdenBailey
    Ever since the update my weather channel app is super glitchy. When I go to watch videos I have to watch an ad before every single one(the same ad over and over), this was not true for the old app. Also, if I click on the video and the ad plays but I scroll down to make it picture in picture and still browse the other videos... if I’m not at the video I initially wanted to watch when the ad ends and the screen goes black, when I try to click on it to bring up full screen it doesn’t work. Then, I have to click on a different video and then go back and am forced to watch the ad again. Also, if I am watching a video and the video ends and I’m in full screen, it immediately starts playing an ad(the same one I watched before the video) and the icon to minimize full screen is completely missing. I have to exit my app and go all the way back in just to watch a new video. I used to be an avid Weather Channel user but not anymore... I hardly even used it for the weather I just liked the nature/science related videos, and I can’t even do that anymore.
  • Big Issue Aug 29, 2018

    By TomahawkD23
    I am currently have problems with the new app that I can’t turn on notifications to receive significant weather advisories, daily rain/snow events, and pollen notifications. In the old app all those notifications where on. But when the new app downloaded they turned off and now I can’t turn them one. I once I’ve selected the notifications I want and press done, a screen comes up saying select a location. I look under locations, it’s blank, nothing shows up. I go back to the home screen. My current location is showing. I try again turning back on the notifications, I still am not being allowed to to select a location or is that part of the app syncing to my location like the home screen did. In my settings I have my current location turned to always on, still nothing. I used to rely on these notifications because I live in tornado alley so I guess it’s a good thing I also have a weather radio too. The Weather Channel app is now useless to me. I guess I rely on my weather radio now to keep my family safe!
  • Good enough Jun 25, 2019

    By Nikkig127
    The UI is good enough, but I find myself going to the default iPhone app or WeatherBug more often. There’s just too much on the main screen of this app. It’s very busy and difficult to find the essentials at a glance. Additionally, this app is useless for travel. You can definitely look up different locations from your home location. But, if you leave the app, not close, just leave and come back two seconds later, it resets you and you’re taken back to your home location. So, when planning/packing for a trip, you’re constantly taken away from the last location you were viewing and you have to go search it again, over and over. So, I just stopped using this app all together for travel. It’s literally useless without completely resetting your default location to the place to which you’re traveling. It should, at least, hold your last viewed location for an hour or two, maybe 24 hours. The forecast is usually accurate. So, that’s good. But I’m not reviewing the meteorologists. I’m reviewing the app.
  • Soooo many inconsistencies.... Apr 1, 2018

    By Mamacitaslg
    For example: Currently, there’s a warning rolling across the top of opening page. It states that there’s a winter storm warning from midnight through tomorrow at 1pm for 3-5” of snow with up to 6” in some areas. When scrolling down and looking at the detailed daily report for tonight and then tomorrow, it states a less than 1” tonight, and tomorrow 1-3” snow possible. Hence, huge discrepancies and inconsistencies, often. Very annoying. I don’t care how pretty the app is, just make it as reliable as possible. This is carelessness. Also, on a side note.... The videos (of which I have chosen not to even read the titles of anymore and get sucked in to watching) are so hyper-sensationalized and almost always over-dramatic, are a waste of time watching. Unfortunately, this is the app I’ve been most familiar with, so have stuck with for years. I guess it’s better than not knowing what to possibly, maybe, sort of expect without it. Finally, why, when there are almost all 1-3-star ratings, is the app showing its a 4.6-star app??????
  • Why Ads? Feb 1, 2021

    By mei.lia
    This app, to my knowledge, is very accurate, well-updated, and informative. I am a big fan of the future radar and the future forecasts in general that let me plan for the day(s) ahead. However, there is one huge drawback that has recently made me drop this app almost entirely: the ads. I do not understand why there are so many ads, why they are placed in the middle of important information, and most of all, why I should have to pay to remove them. All I want to to know if it’s going to be hot or cold tomorrow but instead I get to learn that there’s a carpet cleaner near me. I don’t understand. It’s impossible to watch the videos anymore because the ads are nearly as long as the videos are, and they’re so loud and jarring that I’m turned off before I can even get to the information. If you don’t care about ads, great! This is the app for you. But if you’re like me, you’re better off sticking with the built-in iPhone app. It may not be as thorough, but at least you can access all the information without any pop-ups.
  • Change of Info Needed Jul 16, 2018

    By Lefty21955
    I go to this app, because I don’t watch local news and need real time data. I used to watch The Weather Channel, but unless they changed “Your local on the 8’s”, it’s not as helpful as an app might be. As another user mentioned, this app gives too much forecast. It’s rare to have an accurate forecast for today, tomorrow, or the weekend, so why give the outlook for 15 days? What I would like to see is more current and hourly data. Here where I am, humidity is a big issue; a huge issue really. Hourly forecast showing temp AND humidity would be much more useful. The radar would be helpful, if it were easier to load and gave 15 minute intervals for the future cast. The radar for what passed already is really only helpful as far as the path of the weather, so that timeframe probably could be shortened. I like that this app now features “Watson”, because that should be giving better info. Please keep revising this app! I think we all would like it and use it more, if it were improved.
  • Great overall, but a bit broken Jun 22, 2020

    By TheFudgeyNugget
    I’ve been using this app for many years and I’ve always loved it. The new UI is actually quite nice to use as well. However, I’ve encountered a number of issues lately and I haven’t gotten any assistance with fixing them. Firstly, for at least two years I’ve been unable to add or change any severe weather/rain/lightning/etc alerts for favorite locations, which is a major inconvenience for me. I’ve reached out to the support team but I’ve never gotten a response. Secondly, my current location has been stuck on a certain city for a few weeks and won’t change, even when I was 300+ miles from that location making checking a local forecast rather difficult. There’s an option to report location inaccuracies in the app, but all it does is attempt to send an email to an invalid email address which accomplishes nothing. It’s a shame since I really wish I was able to fully utilize all of the features the app offers, especially since I pay for the premium version.
  • Easier navigation needed Jan 28, 2018

    By Hm1014
    I wish it was a little easier to navigate and find the information I need quicker. The main thing I go to weather apps is to find out how the weather will be for the day and the week. For first time users easy navigation is the key to get them hooked. As time passes they will begin to explore all the neat tools you offer. It’s seems to me I see the day’s forecast and when I try to look for the week I’m bombarded by these crazy breakdown by the hour and pollen in the air , barometer pressures, and I have to scroll for what seems like a eternity to get out of all these crazy breakdowns for just ONE day! and frankly by that time I’m exausted!! And I leave the app. Accuweather on the other hand has tabs which I LOVE and easy to find at the top of the page. Makes it easy to access the information 90% of the population generally needs. Simple tabs and all the extra info is within those tabs as opposed to spread all over the page and having to scroll on and on to move on to the next thing.
  • Used to be good, but now might delete it! Jan 25, 2021

    By Clay Carveth Dain
    This weather app is significantly more detailed and accurate than the pre-installed Apple weather app. It has been my weather app of choice for years. But now, they’ve really amped up all the ads. I could maybe look over that if I didn’t end up getting notification after notification of these random stupid “news” stories that so have no interest in. There’s no way to turn off these notifications and I can get up to like 10 notifications a day about random stuff that isn’t even weather related the vast majority of the time. When in the app I have to scroll so far down past so many ads to try to see all the different weather information available. It’s very frustrating and I get that it’s a free app, but with the pandemic causing a lot less travel for myself, I think I might go ahead and delete this now annoying app even though I really liked it because I’d rather just use the regular weather app that has minimal information but no annoying notifications or ads, and if I need a radar or something I’ll just go online to my local news websites and view their weather information. If you could just AT LEAST turn off those useless notifications that I never said yes to, that would be great, but unfortunately there is no option for me to do that so as long as I have the app installed I will continue to receive these useless news notifications more frequently than I am provided any weather notifications.
  • May 5, 2021

    By Andrew Nickel
    The widget is useless. Always says "no weather data available". Doesn't matter if I'm on wifi or data. If you tap on the widget it opens the app, then the widget will show the weather for awhile, but that defeats the point of having a widget. And after a while it shows the same "no data" message.
  • Good Info BUT Ads TOO Intrusive Jun 5, 2020

    By StollFamily
    First, the information for the current and near future weather from this app is as good as any other weather app and probably a little more timely. It is my preferred weather app and has been for quite a while. To be fair, sometimes it can be very wrong, but 9+ of 10 times it is reliable which is better than other apps. However, the latest few app designs have me so frustrated with the over intrusive positions of the ads. I understand the purpose for having ads...I’m cheap and don’t want to pay, so I accept that I must look at ads to compensate. No problem. Put the big ad first so I’m force to look at it every time. But then let me scroll off of it to see the weather info. In this current app version, I find myself constantly scrolling and having to search for the info I want to see. I know it is there somewhere, but I tend to miss it or just don’t see it through all of the ads. It is too much that I’m not using the app as frequently as I used to...which means I’m not looking at the ads...which I think defeats the purpose. Again I don’t mind having to look at ads, and sometimes i get something that interests me and I even click on them, but this app is supposed to be a weather app, for weather information, and not an ad app with some weather info sprinkled in between. For me 4.5 stars for the info, but 1 star for the app design as it makes me not want to use the app.

    This app has good features and is quite informative. However, it's not very accurate. One minute it'll show a 100% chance of thunderstorms and .5 inches of rain all in one hour! 5 minutes later, that chance will have dropped down to 50% and .03 inches in that hour, and I'll have cancelled all of my plans because of a thunderstorm that was coming my way. Get more accurate and I'll raise my rating.
  • Ads Became Too Much Dec 23, 2020

    By gmm43
    I used to solely rely on this app for my weather, but when they introduced a premium version of the app, they started including ads to promote the premium version. At first, I decided it was no big deal, surely after a few months of promoting the new premium version, they would roll back the intrusive ads. This was not the case. Every time I open the app, an ad for the premium version pops up. I close the ad and click on the radar... and another ad for the premium version pops up. It’s constant and annoying. If I haven’t upgraded to the premium version yet after having the basic version for so long, I’m obviously not interested. I dread needing to look up the weather. It seems the developers are purposefully trying to make the basic version unappealing so that I have to buy the premium. I started looking into other apps, but the company that provides next best weather app has some ethical issues, so I put off downloading it. I’ve finally hit the breaking point though. I will not buy the premium version, especially after the developers have made the basic version irritating to use, so I just downloaded the other company’s app and I will be deleting this app after I post this review. You’re going to lose more customers than you’ll gain premium version customers if you keep this up. No one wants to pay extra just to look up the weather.

    I appreciate the alerts and the fairly accurate forecast, however, the fear mongering videos and news regarding global warming is so frustrating. We need a positive light in this world. If you're going to report on a problem, then focus on a realistic and concrete solution. Please put a positive spin on the news. We need solutions not hopelessness. Can we actually get news that reports on good instead of bad? I think in the middle of a pandemic, that's what we need right now.
  • Used to be 5 stars Feb 6, 2020

    By Cmiester
    As life continues in this Land of the Free Market, we see more and more “monthly subscriptions” as alternatives to pesky ads and better performance. BUT THIS APP HAS GOT TO BE THE BEST EXAMPLE OF THE WORST APP TO DO IT TO. I mean seriously?!? I’ve had this app for YEARS. It was the best performing, most accurate, and user friendly weather app out there. It exceeded all these built in apps and that annoyingly wrong weather-bug thingy (that was a joke for the ones that’ll miss it) when it came to reliability. THEN ONE DAY, corporate decided they wanted a piece of the “subscription” pie and turned this app into the biggest pain in the neck I have ever experienced. It is now so consumed by ads, spammy, and laggy. It spams it’s own app with its own advertising also (had to say that one separate since they control that). It now only shows certain things with “premium” (might as well write it off as ‘only useable as premium’) and has literally made the free version of the app just bad enough to make you buy the “good” version. Is that what it’s come to? Are we now ruining our once good-quality product, so that we can turn around and offer the original good-quality version again for a hefty price? I mean, seriously. Just give me an option to one-time buy it and I’ll think about it, but I’m the mean time I’m over this.

    Rarely do they get it right. The app says it 69°f and partly cloudy. Right now it's 62°f and completely cloudy. This morning it showed cloudy skies and there wasn't a cloud to be seen. Worst part is I paid for the premium app. I only keep it because of the radar, otherwise I would give it 1 star.
  • Very disappointed Jul 31, 2020

    By Coopesg
    Some features of this new improved app are helpful but basic information being available at a glance was abandoned in favor of flashy modern graphics. I miss a quick daily view with not only temperatures, but also wind speeds and wind direction along with precipitation percentages without having to scroll though a long day to day listing. Also the quality of the radar product is much to be desired with very fuzzy low resolution images that does not clearly display the storm features as well as the old pro version. Also the combination of a past and future radar product is unnecessary and in fact it is confusing, especially since the future images are very low resolution and blotchy. I would love to disable the future function entirely. Whats more (since the weather channel manages accuweather) the old accuweather format was replaced with the new weather channel format. Additionally I was hoping that by purchasing the subscription product of the weather channel that there may be new useful information. Sadly all the subscription buys is the elimination of in product ads. I am certainly looking for a replacement weather product for both the weather channel and accuweather that provides the information that I rely on quickly and at a glance.

    Every time I have a notification that I haven't opened, my phone says it's 39°. Yesterday it was 80° right now, it's like 60°. I remember it happened in the winter like that, but thinking it just needed refreshed or something. Obviously that isn't true. Hasn't been 39° for weeks... Why are there so many notifications anyway? Even with notifications off? It used to be WAY BETTER! No reason for my apps to act like little children bugging me for attention, especially when I use this one the most!

    Zero accuracy. Here's an example, daily and hourly predictions are changing from one extream to the next. 2pm would be 90% chance of rain, rain wouldn't fall for 2 days. The radar will show light to medium rain in my location, but the sun would be "shinning bright like a diamond". This app has me lying to the kids when they want to know the weather outlook. Had enough today, cutting ties with false info, which is actually in abundance these days.👋

    With the updates to add, the application is near unusable in it's current state. It appears to be an intentional change to strongarm the user into purchasing their new "premium" tier of the app. I, personally, refuse to support any business who makes choices like this. The Weather Channel app was already found to be selling troves of data on its users to make money, on top of the ads that had existed. With this new change, they have lost a long time fan of the application.
  • Hilariously inaccurate-Devs are gaming themselves out of a job Jan 27, 2021

    When this app reports the weather, it always chooses the incorrect location. Even though I give full location functionality. This is not new, I’ve been manually correcting this app for a couple years, ever since it was downgraded. But now there is a new hilarious “feature”. When you click on the location it incorrectly has you located at, it asks if this is the correct location. If you click “No” it takes you to a menu to select where you actually are located, then takes you to a subsequent menu to confirm what the problem is, such as “Incorrect location”. Once you select the problem, there is NO SUBMIT BUTTON!!!! Your only choice is to select “back” until you arrive at the same incorrect location again. BUT, IT GETS BETTER!!! If you click on the location, and where it asks if this is the correct location you select “yes”, IT SUBMITS AUTOMATICALLY RIGHT THERE AND THANKS YOU FOR YOUR FEEDBACK!!! This means the devs are covering up their failed coding by allowing only for positive feedback, sending incorrect and inaccurate positive location metrics back to the business folks who have know idea their app is actually completely broken. Wish I could be a fly on the wall when the SVP of whatever of the Weather Channel finds out the guys they overpaid to make their app literally embedded in the app a feature that only allows positive feedback, and literally prevents submission of location inaccuracies.

    I have used this app for years now and it's been great but all of a sudden it isnt wanting to work right, it never loads and I can never see the hourly forecast. I have to delete it and redownload it everytime I want to see the forecast. Moving on... trying a different weather app. If they don't fix this problem I wouldn't recommend it but if they fix it then 5 stars all the way across the board but until then you get 1.

    Too many ads, not accurate. I didn't realize how much the weather channel was hurting financially until I downloaded this app. There's a popup ad at nearly every screen unless you "pay" for premium. I understand the need for ads to keep aps free, but this one is without a doubt amongst the worst. I might be able to tolerate it a bit if it were accurate, but again there are many weather aps out there that are more accurate.
  • What happened Oct 15, 2019

    I liked the fact that being older than dirt I could put this on my iPad and make things bigger so that I could see and read everything. I liked the setup except that as with all things meteorologists have a harder time knowing what is going to happen and make guesses as to times of stuff. GOd still has control on most things and weather seems to be changing in our world also. So old age is not the only things that change in life. Why everyone uses light gray writing on a white background and expect someone to be able to see it is idiotic at best. I know all of the younger generation may like new update but I personally liked the old one best. There may have been a few things to change but wish you would make so people had a choice. Older people seem to never get a choice any more. At least there are many more apps I can go to and pray to find one I like. Thanks for nothing but causing me more problems with computers which I am getting ever more aggravated with. Not all old people want so many changes in their later years. Every time I finally get used to something, you geniuses decide to change all around. Just getting used to phones and iPads and all their changes every other day is enough to drive someone crazy and I don’t need any help since as you get older people don’t give me credit for having a lot of common since anyway! Thanks at least for trying to please all the people in the world.

    Not as good as the storm app they are getting rid of in June, which is just radar and the only thing I wanted from them. I hate the ads and I'm not paying for the service. Even if I believed it was worth money for the app I can't trust that they are actually giving you a good app for the money since the free version is trash.
  • WEATHER APP TO PREMIUM UPGRADE NOT WORKING!!!! Jan 17, 2020

    By FormerWeatherAppFan
    I have had the Weather App for many years, including the add free version. Then suddenly I saw features pulled back from the $3.99 Version and got an offer for premium going from $3.99 to $9.99 to basically get the same features I had before. I decided to pay for the Premium version and that is when the problems began. At first my ipad kept showing the adds without premium features, then when I tried to manage my subscriptions, It got rid of the adds on some of the screen, but when I click on some of the extended features (such as the extended hours tab) the app crashes every time. I tried to delete the Weather App on the ipad without luck and then from all devices and reload them, and now my iphone is also not showing extended premium features and also showing adds. If, I try to get refund I am told that I can only cancel the subscription starting at the end of initial subscription year which is at the end of 2020 (this year fee not refundable) but I can use the application until the end of the year (with advertisements). I have submitted multiple support requests online, since December 22, to the Weather App/IBM and the only response I get is "the we will get to you as quickly as possible" from each of the initial contacts. Furthermore, their FAQ and support pages do not have anything to say about what to do with premium features installation failure.

    This app has been my go to for a long time but ever since they put ads on it I'm considering switching. I can understand the need for a revenue stream bit when my home is under a tornado watch and I'm trying to switch between radar and other information I shouldn't be stopped by ads. It's literally a life or death situation being interupted by a bag for sale. Find a way to turn off the ads while under weather advisement and I'll be happy to raise my review stars.

    Updated Comments: The app has gone from bad to totally unusable. The “current location” feature gives me the weather and alerts for an area that is 20 miles away. This is particularly annoying and dangerous on severe weather days. Further I repeatedly get notifications about about what the weather will be like tomorrow in different area area that 20 miles away from where I live, in a completely different direction. To make matters worse, when I try and report the errors, the email address provided within the app come back with a delivery failure because it is invalid. After years of loving the Weather Channel on so many levels, and trusting them to keep me informed and safe, I am done. Wish I could give this app a negative star rating. This used to be a great app. Clean, concise, simple and accurate. However, all the “updates” and redesigns during the last year or so have turned it into one hot mess. It takes forever to load, crashes repeatedly, removes saved locations and settings with each update, and keeps sending me forecasts and alerts for cities where I do not live, have never been to and could care less about. I have sent these concerns to support several times and nothing is ever fixed or even addressed. It’s all about advertising and video features. I have used this app for years, yet am getting ready to delete it. I am so disappointed.
