  • Horrible new update

    By Lblanco23
    I cannot even open the app. It shuts down before I can see anything.
  • Amazon scam

    By jennybrown310
    The amazon scam pops up every time I use this app and go to the radar, it has to be on the server side. Please fix for updated review!
  • Porn plays when I open the app

    By KayLWay
    This sounds like I’m making this up, but on two separate occasions when I have opened the app on my phone, a video will open playing explicit pornography. They were two different videos the two times this had happened. I have seen others questioning this on Facebook and Twitter. It’s completely outrageous, and I clearly can’t use the app with this happening. I’m not sure what’s going on but it needs a fix ASAP. Unreal.
  • Swipe to see saved locations

    I liked it better when you could swipe to see your saved locations
  • Future Radar Doesn’t Work

    By jlh55514
    I’ve been so frustrated lately because the future radar doesn’t work!! I thought maybe it was just my phone but saw on other reviews that this is a common thing! Please FIX this! It used to work so it can’t be that difficult.
  • Low temp higher than current

    By I can't seem to find a nicknam
    This is a pet peeve of mine, but I absolutely HATE IT when the forecast shows the low temperature for the day being 10 degrees higher than the current temperature. This is like first grade coding...if current temp < low temp then low temp = current temp!!! There is also a “feed-back” section where all it is is a where to actually provide any kind of FEEDBACK!!! My “next few hours “ showed a “forecast” of five hours AGO that was off by 10 degrees! Give it up, horrible app!
  • Ads Again

    By emortaro
    I had purchased no ads awhile ago and haven’t got them since a recent update. Now weather channel asks for $4 a year for no ads. Boo!
  • Terrible

    By Shamed1.233
    Maybe you should fix your app...... shows today as Sunday.... it’s Monday....I’ve even restarted my phone.... same.....
  • Inaccurate

    By High zen bird
    I don’t know how this is a # 1 rated app. It’s very inaccurate when it comes to weather around Michigan. For example today it says no rain until around 4pm for my area. 140pm and it’s raining with the radar all green. The snow accumulations are always way off too. Usually we get way more than they predict on this app. The local news station’s weather on their app is way more reliable.
  • Locations randomly disappear

    By ChippyZombie
    I use this app all the time and I have for years, but it’s becoming very frustrating to use now. All of my saved locations are randomly deleted and I’m constantly having to reload and save them. The locations will be saved one day but then disappear by the next morning. The app is also very slow and glitchy and frequently crashes. I’m not sure what has been done to the app to cause all of the problems, but it needs to be fixed ASAP!!
