App Reviews

  • Slow and freezes constantly

    By MagikarpFYEAH
    Have had this app for 5 years and have always defended it.... Even if the forecasts are nothing close to accurate. The last few versions though are what finally made me delete it. Slow. App freezes constantly. Too many ads. Horrible UI. Needs an overhaul that won't freeze my phone, then I'll think about re downloading.
  • Had to downgrade my review

    By ndcjsljs
    This was my go to weather app. However, latest update is no longer compatible with the iPhone 5c, despite the fact that I still have the latest iOS update. I'm not going to upgrade my phone over a stupid weather app, so guess this app has to go. And when I finally do upgrade my phone, I won't be coming back to this app.
  • Needs another update...

    By jketski
    After the most recent update the app is still running incredibly slow. It takes awhile for it to actually open, ever since they added "with Watson" to the home screen the spinning wheel remains for quite some time. When you try to swipe right to view other saved cities there is an extremely long pause before the screen changes. There is also a lag on the radar maps.
  • Used to be great

    By Stunuts
    This app used to be great no issues to talk about at all. But now i would rather look forward to having paper cuts on my eyelids than use this app. Please go back to the old version or completely revamp this build. My dog takes better poops than this app.
  • They Just updated again 5 min after one update and fixed radar scrolling only

    By jdheueyeherh
    Broke the scrolling on both the UI and radar then released another update five minutes later that fixed the radar scrolling but they STILL still have NOT restored The ability to full screen the radar now five updates later after they took it away
  • Newest update

    By Br928
    Won't download on iPhone 5 saying it isn't compatible. It has stayed in the que for 3 days now. I like previous version though. Nearly a month now and still not compatible. Seriously ?
  • Annoying ads

    By Dr.Ekim
    If you want to see more ads than weather, use this app. This app adds more crap than its worth. Avoid it. Stick with the standard apple weather app. This adds radar, but nothing else of value. Instead of annoying ads, maybe they could add functionality that people feel is worth money. Nah, instead more ads.
  • Keep Screwing Up this App

    By Marco Island Beach Comber
    Stop screwing up this App. You improve then old features don't work. I am about to delete you for all the upgrades that messed up my locations and features. Four weeks later after Irma, it freezes and was useless during the hurricane. Doesn't scroll to other areas. Don't download. There are others that are better.
  • Just seems all screwed up

    By Flickr is broke
    Used to work great, now all screwed up. Every update doesn't really fix the problems. Sad.
  • Why all these positive reviews??

    By DennisGaudenzi
    It takes forever to load. Half the time it does not load and you get a blank screen. There are way better apps for weather and radar... Wunderground. AccuWeather. And others.
