  • Ruined

    By Chorch11
    Simplicity is a virtue. The old app was clear, attractive, and had all relevant information available at a glance. This ugly new app has waaay too much unnecessary data. (Weather Videos? Are you kidding me? Who has time to root through all this nonsense? ) I don’t care if you charge, but I want the old app back. Til then, adios!
  • Hate ads!

    By katcheri
    Hate the ads that won’t let you Close them!!! & not paying to upgrade without them; so I suffer thru
  • Weather

    By Bryna K
    After I got used to it, I like it because it's accurate...I just hit it, and the weeks forecast comes up... I don't have to read a map or anything that I have no clue about, just the printed word.. snow or rain or clear...
  • Weather channel

    By hjprstc
    This is not very good. Does not seem to know what day it is and half the time I need to shut down my iPad and restart in order to even get it to come up. Been going to the local TV app to get current & correct information. The old weather channel page was not broken so how come it was replaced.
  • Radar Update

    By needs fixing people
    I don’t know what you all did to the radar function, but the change needs to be reverted. The option to select past/future is gone and only future is available. I don’t want to see where your algorithms “think” the rain is going...I want to see the direction it’s been tracking and make my own decisions.
  • Bring back the old version

    By LazyRays
    The version for iPads was great looking, easy to read and use. The new version isn’t useful. Why have boxes that aren’t easy to read at a glance? Why eliminate the ability to page through saved cities? Don’t bother with this version of the app.
  • Worse and worse

    By AppleGrlOU812
    Old app crashed so I had to reinstall. Can not scroll down on hourly or daily without hitting the ad which takes me to the Ad and not weather. Nice trick. There are too many other, better apps out there to put up with this nonsense.
  • The first app was better

    By prettypinkdragonfly
    The old app was soooooo much better
  • weather news

    By %tcr#
    Easy to follow, and complete.
  • Ads, Ads, and More Ads.

    By CAC1994
    Edit: It has gotten WORSE. There are so many ads my phone seems to hardly be able to keep up, and I have a new Xs Max!! Ads to see the temp, ads before and after videos THAT TAKE UP THE WHOLE SCREEN. Worthless. I’m moving on to another ap. Good luck trying to watch a video remotely related to weather. The app will load the same 15 second ad PERFECTLY and have it playing instantly, but the videos you actually want to watch will buffer. Also, scrolling through the app, good luck not clicking on some spamming ad asking what age range you’re in or if you can run a 9 minute mile or something that looks like 2000s click-bait. Weather Channel, I’m not mad. I’m just disappointed.
  • Not accurate.

    By Blah bleep per dup
    This app is beautifully set up. I love how user friendly it is compared to the other options. However the actual weather predicting capability of it, is not strong. For example, it will change what the weather is actually supposed to do 8-9 times a day or much more. And not subtle changes. It’s more like, it does a 180 every couple of hours.
  • -9 out and low says 10

    By jharms09
    Why do the hi and low temps for the day rarely match the actual temps? It’s 7am and -9 outside and app says that’s the temp but hi/lo shows 15/10 for today, how’s that possible and what timeframe is this thing using? Other than that is ok app but there are better ones.
  • Boo

    By Whatever_Not_Taken
    I liked the other one better, the one you could just slide to get weather for other areas. In spite of updates, this app does not refresh on the IPad to current time, even though settings are on for background app refresh. It is necessary to close the app and reopen to get it to refresh.
  • Overall decent app, radar could be better

    By smpetrey
    The radar doesn’t quite work as expected and is quite buggy. I’ve submitted hundreds of bug reports and I’m even a paying customer. The app literally has so much potential, but changes to the app move at a snails pace. Really disappointing.
  • Nice app, no longer works on my iPad

    By Polyman
    Since iOS 13.3 this app tries to open then quits. 🤷‍♂️
  • Viewing

    By Cilbrith
    I liked the old set up though

    By ph4:67
    A must have for keeping up with everything! Radar is GREAT!

    By BeachLover57
    I purchased the “Premium Version” of the Weather Channel App on January 11th, 2020 for $9.99. Today is February 20th and I STILL DO NOT HAVE THE PREMIUM VERSION WORKING ON MY PHONE!! I have sent NUMEROUS emails asking for help to resolve this issue- I have had ZERO responses. So, apparently they just steal your $9.99 and you get NOTHING!
  • Is excellent

    By el caballero del bolante
    Is excellent
  • New app is garbage

    By bobby lee jonex
    Absolute garbage Bring back the old format
  • To many ads

    By Fungi101
    Yes I know you offer a premium service you don’t need to throw an ad in my face every time I want to check the temperature
  • It was so awful

    By NC0614
    It was so awful cause it never snow in Arlington
  • Update is shit

    By DFWREZ1
    I hate the new update and will no longer use this app.
  • It never works...

    By Dwayne Johnson A.K.A The Rock
    It takes the app at least 6 minutes to load. I recommend AccuWeather!
  • Best app

    By LouisGar
    Great app for weather info
  • Good app, always Crashes and restarts

    By Dominosboy
    The quality of the app Is there but it’s ruined by the fact that it crashes more often then any app I’ve ever used.
  • Hate the new version

    By sshaline
    Why did you change the format??. I HATE IT!!! I hate everything about it. The other version was much easier to see the hourly and daily information. Too much other crap to scroll thru. I just want to know what the weather is going to be - not interested in all the stories. That’s what google is for!
  • Sick of ads!

    By DontBAWinner
    Why did I do the update?! Like so many apps, the updates aren’t to “fix bugs” it’s to include a bunch of annoying ads. So sick of them!!! Is an ad thrown in between each days’ forecast really necessary? Ugh
  • Great features with Accuracy!

    By MWStinnett
    It’s unbeliveable how accurate this app is. It’s very helpful for me in regards to my profession. Thanks WC!
  • Not Accessible

    By pilotrtc
    Color contrast and size of type are below standard. I cannot read this app. WCAG 2.1
  • Ads?!?

    By Mr Colin Dude
    The full page pop up ads when you exit the daily or hourly details page are ridiculous. I get it that ads need to be sold to support the free version of the app but this is too much. I’m sure some people are fed up enough to pay for premium but I’m looking for another weather app.
  • Works

    By Cody738573
    The app works slowly but unfortunately every time I open the app, it requests me to subscribe to premium. Make it an option and I may subscribe in the future but don’t ask me every day
  • Give me back last version !

    By smk1226
    I was very reluctant to get the latest version of this app because I was perfectly fine with the previous one. Then one day it was dead. Had no choice. Had to get current one a few weeks ago. Was trying to give a little time to get used to it. Well now it is apparent that everything about it is slower than before. Have to tap several times on anything I want to bring up. Then it is so slow. Don’t even like the format as well. All I want to do is get hour by hour, day by day forecast many times a day (because forecast changes so quickly sometime), as well as view of the radar currently and in motion. All very slow and annoying.
  • Perpetual Doom and Gloom

    By GNAlive
    If you want a good dose of morose negativism — listen/watch the stories and videos on this app. I wonder what the family members of this crew have to endure at the dinner table. Whining, complaining, world is ending ... droning on and on and on.
  • Useless now

    By Heidi29
    Most of the time it doesn’t even open, too much clutter, difficult to was so perfect before the update.
  • App keeps crashing and wont open

    By disappointedgma
    The app has been crashing for days, I suppose the way to fix is to go ad free, nope uninstall and get another app
  • Too many adds

    By abbotM3
    Too many adds have started popping up, I am switching to accuweather
  • Making me pay for something that has always been free is crappy

    By cyberdill
    Used this app for years. Has been my go to for fairly reliable forecast. Recently y’all decided to profit by making us pay for a premium version of what we had for free with a few perks. I don’t want to pay because I don’t need the added BS. so I get punished with clunky force closing ads in my daily listing. Bad form dudes. I’ll be searching for a different app now. Should’ve left well enough alone and stayed away from the dollar signs.
  • Two versions ago was best

    By MKP1015
    While I find the info on this app reliable, and hence continue to use it, I find the latest layout irritating. I miss the layout that showed each day of the week in an area in large format and clicking into each day could give the hourly forecast. Less clicking and scrolling. More info “at a glance.”
  • Stop ripping people off

    By 0194562921
    This must be the 4th time they are now wanting to charge me for premium.. I’ve paid this before but then they somehow update the app a couple years later and now I need to pay again.. Stop ripping people off.. Your app runs like crap and now your new update makes it look like crap and it’s clunky.. The app still doesn’t load correctly or won’t update.. Yet you still bombard me with “UPGRADE”.... Weather Bug is 10x better.. I’ll dump the junk and stay with Weather Bug....
  • Dear weather Chanel

    By wolfieaisla
    I know I gave you five stars but you need a cool new update ok👌🏿
  • Annoying advertisement

    By Pee Luu
    I have been enjoyed The Weather Channel App over the pass 10 years. Lately I am not so enjoyed much because of the rediculous leghthy time of the advertisement you watch the 15 seconds from the weather channels video but 1 minute of advertisement wasting time. I am giving 30 days trying if the issues not improve I'll delete the app and use someone else app.
  • Love it - with one request

    By breniny
    We would love to see expected snow fall accumulation totals, and expected snow clearly marked for each possible snow day.
  • Use to be a fan

    By 2454pj
    I loved the previous layout of the weather. It was more detailed. I don’t really watch the videos. I just updated only because the older version wasn’t working anymore. I haven’t tried yet to check out for chance of pollen. I will use this app but not happy with it.
  • Love the radar!

    By N.E.GA,Boy
    Loving the updates and the notifications aren’t so numerous that they’re bothersome. Radar seems to incredibly accurate as the weather shifts. Really pleased with this application !
  • Weather channel IBM

    By Sandra Mimi
    I get a complete idea of the weather each day, every hour has temperature and forecast, so I can ideally time when to walk the dog. It is over conscientious! It lets me know when there will be a rain shower during the night when I sleep. This is a well thought out app, certainly a big improvement over the old one. I am happy with it. There are weather videos and a lot of other things pertaining to the weather.
  • Worst App Update Ever

    By Bushtie
    If I could give no stars, I would. This app was the most user-friendly and useful app until the last update. Now it’s pages full of hard-to-read, hard-to find and useless information ever. A few weeks into the update and I am not one inch closer to getting used to it or liking it. Besides the near constant notification alert that’s always highlighted, but when I click into the app, there’s no notification there. Total failure by your developers.
  • I like to know!

    By i like to know
    I appreciate the weather app, and that is why I bought my new iPad last week. My old, but loved mini pad did not shoe the weather any mor3. I went to have it checked out, and my old mini did not have the youth it needed to support the new weather app. I like to know what is going on weather wise where my family and friends live. And sometimes I just want to see what is going on with the weather around the world. I love seeing maps of various places and noticing rain, snow, mixed winter weather. Thank you for an interesting app so I can see what is happening in the would.
  • Last update

    By lrpr1995
    Since doing this update the app isn’t live anymore, it’s after midnight and the hours are still showing from this morning. What’s up with that?
