Bloated and buggy... closes itself often... used to be a better app, but now even the click-bait videos won't run. That's pretty bad when even the bloat is too bloated. The widget still works, and that's the only reason why i continue using. Full Review

I used to love this app. Ever since the update last month, this app is useless. Once i open it, it will crash when select hourly forecast, daily forecast, radar, etc... every time! I have to restart it over and over again before it will mostly work. It feels like they sacrificed stability for Advertising space/videos. Please fix soon! Currently looking for a different option so i can remove this junk from my phone.... Full Review

it helps at times. i don't have to watch the news to get the weather. I don't like not being able to kill an ad without killing the video. Why does the whole site seemingly crash every so often and then reboot? I completely lose the place I was at, and it can get annoying to try to keep going back to that particular spot. I think it usually happens when watching videos or when using the radar map. Full Review

This app is completely bloated up with garbage making it slow. I want to be able to access my daily forecast, hourly forecast, and other locations quickly. Instead, this app will force you to scroll through ads and stupid articles that has nothing to do with the forecast in your region. Full Review

It is a fine app to get your forecast. Other than that the app is pretty useless. The most pointless, battery draining feature in the follow me setting. I very much dislike this because I have to enable it to see weather at my location without searching for where in at. This should not be needed! Get rid of it. I should be able to click my location and it should update me for the forecast there without me searching. Full Review

Too many video ads that are loud!! This app has been very annoying ever since this inception. And Jimmy John's your advertising has had an opposite effect as in seeing your video ad at least 1000 times you will never have my business Full Review

It's gotten cluttered. There are way too many videos unrelated to the forecast, or even weather! It's all click bait. I understand that ads help keep apps free, but it's getting trashy. I used to hold the Weather Channel in such high regard. Major disappointment. Full Review

After years of use I have discovered that it is the widget for this app that messes up my phone. Here seems to be the only place I can say this. The information is still useful, even entertaining sometimes. However, the problems with the widget, slow load times, and heavy use of ads make this app less useful than I use to believe. Plus nowhere to report problems with the app except here shows poor customer relations. Full Review

This is a politically biased weather app, and with even politics aside, it has too much nonsense. Just give me the straight weather please, without having to constantly get your political digs in. Uninstalling. Full Review

Weather is accurate. Your flu reports are not accurate. My area is currently having extreme amounts of flu. Your app shows no flu reports for my area. Shortage of Tamiflu liquid in my area now. Important for people to know. Why have it accessable through your app if it doesn't work?! Full Review

Great timely weather info. I love the news articles and popular trending videos. Keep up the positive, fun, interesting stories as well as the other stories. Regular news alone is too depressing. Thanks for providing an alternative to the usual. Full Review

Eh. Like TWC TV, it's worthless if you live in the West. Here (in S. Colo) drought, fire, and low altitude snow (below 8,000 ft) are the biggest concerns. TWC seems only concerned with temperates and extreme events. It's impossible from this app to know how bad the drought is here. Full Review

Works better now, but tends to abruptly close before I'm finished with it. I take it back. It is continually freezing and crashing. Still use it though as the information is pretty accurate. Full Review

I am always boating and need to know what the day us going to be like. I depend on the weather channel on being there for me. That way my guest will enjoy the day of speeding up and down the bayous of South Louisiana at a 100 mph+ Full Review

The app consistently uses 70+ MB to run in the background, thus slowing down my phone in all aspects. I turn off auto video play, but the videos self play anyway. Good temp, and forecast, but not worth the Bloat. Full Review

This weather app is amazing. It Just only needs to specify where the lightning is close if you have location on and overall should be specific about weather on the map when location id on. Other then that, Its the best out there Full Review

I think it's a great app to use for the weather. I use it on all my devices and the main thing I like is that you can set it up to get weather alerts which in snowy weather it's a big help. Full Review

This app is great! Very accurate forecast! And I enjoy the different videos on the app every day. One great feature is you can go into the settings and have the weather follow you so it automatically changes on your phone wherever you go and up in the left upper corner of your phone it says the temperature no matter where your at! It's just all around the best weather app in my opinion I've tried them all! Full Review

It's great to see you in advance when we might have Frost so I know when to cover my plants and in the summer to know when I can't be out in the heat as I have MS. I love the 15-day forecast and the video that they have with the stories of things that are going on. Great site I love it!! Full Review
