App Reviews

  • Stop muting my sound

    By bluecruiser
    Lately every time I open the app it automatically mutes the sound for any other app - podcasts, music, etc. Looks like it's tied to video ads in the app that auto play. There's no need to mute other sounds until/if I select a video. Very annoying!
  • Adds

    By Minnesota 218
    Why do I have to watch the same add over and over again. It is infuriating!
  • Weather channel app "not compatible with this device"

    By TMaxx1775
    Annoying error message. Every thing me an update is available.
  • You’ve killed this app

    By drwillb1
    I’ve had iPhones since the 1st generation launched and I’ve always used the Weather Channel app rather than the Apple supplied app. However, this app has gotten so bloated with videos, ads, and additional information that it is now painfully slow to load and then it takes more time to be able to scroll down the screen. I am now officially switching over to the Apple weather app to cure the lag and bloat. Here’s the really funny part: the Apple wether app gets its data from The Weather Channel.
  • Bring back swiping between locations

    By Kratz92
    You can no longer swipe between locations. Very inefficient. Is no longer recommend.
  • Can't Update App

    By april52279
    I had to uninstall this app in hopes of being able to download the latest version. Unfortunately it still says "This app is not compatible with your device," and now I cannot even re-download it on my iPhone. Going to look for another weather app now. Hopefully they get this fixed.
  • Success I never want to buy from your advertisers!

    By inobuyfromyourads
    I used to love to watch your little short videos! But you put an 12sec+ long add in front of every single one which actually takes at least 12+ secs to load then the actual video takes another 12+ secs - you want to make me never buy a product from anyone who advertises with you. Your advertising has succeeded!
  • Good for weather, if you like ads

    By SuperToadBB
    Slowly this app seems to be showing more and more ads. Now, when trying to check the weekly or hourly forecast, a full screen ad pops up. The weather forecasting is good, and the app worked well for so long. But now there are more ads and videos than weather content. Is this a tactic of slowly increasing the pressure to pay for ad-free content? If so, it didn’t work.
  • Too slow

    By RateOnlyIfEnjoyOrHate
    This app is horrible. It is too slow for me. There is a lag on every action I make.
  • Glitching Ads!

    By eringirl41
    I love everything about the Weather Channel App—except for the fact that there is an advertisement attached to each video and that 50-60% of the time, it loads so slowly, glitching as it loads, that I just give up!
