Loved this ap til we moved, now it defaults to the bigger nearby town and always puts that town back on the list even if I remove it from all the lists like latest locations and favorites. Bigger town is always the one that shows on the widget even though I set our home town to home. We're about an hour away from the bigger city, but we obtain quite various weather. I'm going to test another weather ap and see if I can obtain a widget that will actually tell me the town I wish to know about's weather.
I hope a developer reads this.... could someone please create the color contrast easier to see? The light blue of the everyday temps and rain percentage blend in with the light blue of the whole background and its not simple to see. Or maybe give a setting to change the colors? Some may like how it is now, idk.
Come on ios has a no ads version. I posted review two years ago saying this was the most annoying part. In april of 2016 on twc www service it says no ads ver coming soon to android device dated april of 2016. Still not. If there were no ads it would create the application perfect. Its the only reason i hate this app.
I got the application because I don't pay attention to the news, which you need to do in Florida.. What with all the hurricanes :p It alerts me of any storms from thunder, to rain, to hurricane level events. Amazing for keeping up with the weather without having to go through any additional steps like going to a www service or waiting for the news to switch to weather.
The Weather Channel can't create a forcast for an hour from now. Cloudy with 0% precip and it has been raining for 3 hours. This happens everyday not once in a while. People use the application to look at nonweather similar video clips because it is worth nothing else. Looking for a better alternative to this. Fox13 weather seems to work alot better than this abomination. Goodbye weather channel.
Used to be a amazing application but unfortunately you decided to stop us from choosing our exact areas to choosing the nearest huge city. Like really!!! Why did you create such a silly choice!!! Weather reports differ even between two close little towns. The application defaults my current zone to a town 19km away. Please fix asap, otherwise I have to uninstall
I thought I was downloading an application for weather information, not a clickbait add-ridden piece of junk that tries to [email protected]#$%!'s nonsensical political views on you and guilt you into supporting ideals that have very small hard evidence. Edit: After the disaster in Puerto Rico, it still seems as if Weather Channel is on a downhill slope. Most of the videos seem to be using the situation to push political views. I've never been more disappointed. I've decide to delete the application and move on to another.
I've always liked the weather channel. The videos and everything is great. However, it uses up wayyyy too much cache without auto clearing it each time you close out of the app. I had over 5 GB of cache stored on my phone that was solely from Weather Channel that I just deleted. Needs a fix badly! I'll re-rate once there's a fix out there for this issue.
DEFINITELY UNISTALLING THIS APP & GOING WITH A MUCH BETTER WEATHER APP.... SORRY!! I updated this application and I HATE it even more now, because it bogs my phone down. It freezes my phone and the screen goes black and I'm NOT able to EXIT out of it! So it's definitely the worst weather application ever IT'S EVEN WORSE AFTER I UPATED IT!!😡😡😡
As I type this, there are huge fires burning in Northern California. Here next to the Bay, and miles away, the air is thick with smoke. One expert says it's "as poor as Bejing" in San Francisco. And yet your application rates "breathing comfort" as "very good." Running conditions are also supposedly "very good." There is no alert on the home page telling me about the smoke blowing into the area. Well great! I'm off to download an air quality tracker.
Our entire family enjoys this application as it is essential for farmers to know the weather! We have family in Washington state and N.C. and we all call each other to inform our loved ones of impending risky weather. Finally, I have to admit I'm a weather geek...we love the videos featuring all aspects of nature. We really appreciate the family friendly atmosphere and personality of your staff and videos. We all agree that The Weather Channel portrays sincere empathy when tragedy strikes thru wildfires , earthquakes , flooding...you always exemplify compassion. In closing , the animal videos are a touching gift which makes this application a family fav 💙
Amazing weather application but the promised addition of an ad free option is still not available on Android. Repeated emails asking about this go unanswered. The ads have become annoying and bog down the app. This is by far the most accurate weather application I have used but you are not supporting your Android device users by not adding this feature that already exists for the iPhone/IPad app. If the ads had not increased, I would have rated higher.
It helps me hold up with rain and impending storms. Very imperative since I work outside mostly so that I can seek shelter before anything major happens. It also helps me to prepare for the morning before stepping out the door by knowing the outside temperature and conditions.
The notification is smaller, and using the two finger pinch makes it a usable size, however it does not remember to stay pinched when the screen turns off. I understand that getting you to view the features there is how they obtain you into the app, which is where they present the ads and monetize you, but I view those features when I need to anyway.
I have always liked the weather channel and the app. I remember though when they started doing the videos... and there were no ads. Then it was an ad every couple or so videos. Now it's before EVERY video. So annoying. They really think advertising the same one is going to create us think we should look into it.
Horrible app. The forecast changes all the time. One min it says 80 percent possibility of rain and hour later it will say 20 percent. Would be better if it just said llok at radar map and figure it out. Your guess is as amazing as ours. They suck
Amazing weather reporting, hour from hour usually on point, but the videos are terrible. Gaurenteed long ads for every single video, which wouldn't be a huge deal, but the videos are short and usually non conclusive often failing to give enough information. I've unfortunately vowed to never watch another video on this app. Sidenote: I understand the need for income via ads, but it seems like it's all just for the ad revenue.
Pinching does seem to resolve the issue, but it is only a temporary fix which I must repeat each time. I would still love to see a setting that allow us decide what shows in the default notification. [Re-Edit] I was right the first time, it is temporary... Boo...
First, it hardly works. I load the application and despite how amazing my connection is, all I obtain is a beautiful background. In the rare occassions it does work, finding what I wish requires scrolling through ads and videos. I just don't search it very user friendly.
If the screen shots you post actually match how the application is then it would be more accurate. Can you say a weather squad that tries to act like a news team. Most of the videos or ads just slow down your application and create it crash regularly or restart. Guess that says a lot about media.
I've used this application since I've had a intelligent phone. It has better readings and alerts than any other weather app. Also I have fun the other weather videos it has. Plus you can see if in the zone are sick with cold or flu. Amazing information
On-going notification for temp disappears after a day or so and only comes back if the application is opened. When you tap feedback within the application it takes you to the feedback and support page of the www service and if you can't search what support you're needing there is still no method I've found to leave actual feedback or contact. The feedback link on the support and feedback website just returns you to the first support page so that's why I'm writing it in here. The application is amazing and normally dependable before the notification issue started.
The fresh modernize is horrible! The temperatures are so small! They only use about 20% of the visible page. No tabs for radar, forecast, etc, like previous versions! I am uninstalling it for now. Hope you correct soon. Meanwhile, I'll use WeatherBug... not my favorite, but at least I can SEE the temperatures!!
The fresh Android device format is HORRIBLE and TEDIOUS!!!!! It takes FOREVER to search a future forecast for the next few days, and even then you have to scroll, scroll, scroll. I can't believe they took my favorite go-to weather application and TOTALLY destroyed it. Thankfully, they haven't messed up the IOS ver ... YET!
I don't check the weather to hear or read about your political opinions, stick to the weather. Shame, I used to love TWC. Hell, myself and my 3 year old twins got stuck in a downpour and had to run to a neighbor's house while walking because TWC showed (both via the radar and "rain shower starting at") it wouldn't rain for another 30 minutes. Thaaaaanks. Time to rely on the more accurate and non-political NWS ✌
Sick and tired of watching commercials with EVERY SINGLE video or article.... TOO MANY ADS... the globe is showing more advertisements then the actual present or program... It completely underminds the actual info people are trying to get..
The section of application where there is 27 alerts to pick from does not work. No matter if you have set zone or whatever it asks for. Then it doesnt allow you go back to apps main page. Also a lil glitchy from time to time saying random msgs. This has happened more since latest application update. I tried uninstall and re-install but it didnt help.
