    Enjoy the videos. Like up to date reports. It changes as you go through different cities traveling. I like the feature where you can choose the different types of videos. I really like the animal videos. I also really appreciate that on the videos where people take a risk with their life to get a good video that you usually say that it's not a good thing to do. Even though it might be best video on there your life is worth more than having your video on everyone's phone or on tv. I appreciate the weather alerts. They are helpful especially at night.

    When your forced to watch the SAME damn Lexus commercial 13 times in a row the weather becomes FAR less important. I understand your a business in the end but to force feed the same 15 second( un skippable) add is annoying as hell. Think Weather channel ?? Full Review

    The information on the App is great, however, lately, looking at the radar and other features, such as videos, allergy information, or the cold and flu reports makes the app crash. Very annoying. Some of the ads are very inappropriate, hinting strongly at pornography. SERIOUSLY?!? Your people need to be more diligent in choosing the ads for the app. Children do look at this app. Full Review

    I find TAC best for accuracy about 90% of the time, compared to all other sources I have tried. I check TWC (right after I grab a cup of coffee) first thing each morning! Full Review

    Great accurate info. Love the hourly and two week forecasts. It would be nice if they included the dates on the two week forecast, though. They always have very interesting videos. My only complaint is there are far too many full length video ads now. And they're usually the same 2 or 3 ads over and over. It's gotten so bad, I don't watch the videos at all anymore. It's disappointing. But since it's not critical to the function of the actual app, I'm only taking off one star. (If you're going to produce and show entertaining videos, don't make it a drag to wach them.) The weather app itself works perfectly. But when the ads and the videos are the same length, why bother?

    Love the app, but the current weather view can be off. It can be snowing and the app says it's raining or clear. Or it could be pouring rain and it says clear skies or sunny. That needs to be fine tuned. Otherwise, I love all the information. Full Review

    It's a good app. Gives you every thing you need to know currently and a great look at what the weather will be like in the next few days. The radar is good, but have seen better, but I do like the future part of the radar. It is also nice to search other cities. Full Review

    The people running this app have the ability to speak with the gods and find out exactly how the weather will be. But be careful! For these gods can be tricksters, and will sometimes lie for reasons unknown. Overall, good app. Full Review

    Sarah Lundy Published date: November 16, 2017

    Would like " feels like" in the hourly forecast. Make temp. in status bar larger. Not liking the new layout, videos should not be on main page. If I want to watch them I will, should not be forced to see them. They keep the page laggy because of the constant loading. Ads I get have to be there but they also make the page laggy and in the way. Atleast put them on the side of the page. Full Review

    I'm one of those freaks that has used most weather apps. I find this to be the best. WeatherBug does a better job for presentation but the actual data has sometimes been incorrect so I no longer use it. Full Review

    Crashes my tablet every time I try to watch a video. About 1 minute in, every time since last update. Whole tablet freezes and shuts down. Also how about an ad free version? There's too god dam many of them. I want weather, not 3 pages of ads. My phone screen is only so big, and there's an ad on every god dam page. Even the map. How much money u guys need? Turned off video autoplay, but they decided to keep the video ads autoplaying. Really great, super close to giving up using this app. The website is an ad monster and click bait farm now. Why can't they just give us the information like Wikipedia. You guys seriously suck. Full Review

    Love this app! Let's me know what to expect when/where I'm traveling so I can make arrangements. If it's sunny, I take my shades... If it' windy, I take my surfboard... If it's snowing, I take my snowboard... If it's raining, I dance... You get the picture. Full Review

    Hardly ever failed on forecasting the weather, anywhere in the world, even for long term. Very reliable! The only down part is the fact that you can't manually change the default location. Full Review

    I think you've probably got way too many commercials, that's a little bit over-the-top and way too distracting in a supermarket tabloid sort of way, but otherwise great app. Full Review

    Well what do I think about the Weather Channel? Since the Weather Channel does weather 24/7 7 days a week they live in breathe weather so they kind of got to be on it wouldn't you think. Full Review

    I use the radar map every day to help me understand the weather for the day and to allow me to plan the day more effectively. I like having the current temperature posted in the upper left hand corner of my home page. The weather bulletins are very timely and useful. The push announcement s are all very useful. Full Review

    I like it – I just wish it didn't cover part of the radar map with ads, because they really reduce the usability of the map. Full Review
