    Always my go to source for the current and correct weather, but I wish they had a paid app without the "freebie" points and ads. (Not a fan of ads) Update 01-18-18 Came back to Android after a couple years and instantly installed this app. I was looking at the widgets and thought there used to be one that showed you the next 2 or 3 day's forcast but it looks like it has been removed.

    Update: Had to uninstall then reinstall, now I have no radar, no allergen count, nothing. Uninstalling for good. Great app love it ...but not so much the widgets. Also sometimes it'll be pouring rain and I look at the radar to see how long it'll last and there is no rain showing on radar which is confusing. Other than that and a separate weather/clock widget I had to install it's great. But for the love of God add mold to the allergies PLEASE! And the actual numbers of the allergen counts would be nice as well! Full Review

    Used to be excellent up to date weather. As noted by others updates have lost functionality. Alerts for my area 24 hours late. Radar map shows no alerts. New update. After last update radar map does NOT display what is selected and no alerts displayed. Now latest update,. Frequently will not load. Have to refresh home page to receive up to date information.update. Radar has disappeared after that last update Full Review

    Would very nice if there was an easier way to switch locations like swiping right. Also needs a quick way to change from current conditions, 15 day forecast (which should be displayed vertically like virtually every other weather app) and radar. Maybe have those 3 main sections as tabs to swipe left or right between them (again this is the way most apps work because it's easier). Lastly please fix the bug where additional favorites get added without me doing it (example: I add Berlin, Germany as a favor but the app then added another favorite somewhere near or in Berlin. I don't want any extra favorites added without me doing it). Full Review

    How can such an important app and one that has millions of downloads be so clunky. Videos freeze all the time. I don't even bother trying to watch them anymore. Please fix this problem. Full Review

    Tom Moore Published date: January 18, 2018

    The notification needs to be fixed to how it was in the previous update. I liked the constant update of the ongoing temperature of my location. Now it is able to be cleared from my notifications, which I don't like. I want the notification to be stuck in my notification bar, not have the ability to remove it. People can just go into settings if they don't want the notification to begin with. Full Review

    This last upgrade is the worst. Bring back the radar. Its also missing pollen count. I rely on the radar to determine my outings or if I need to put my pets out before a storm. Full Review

    I loved this app until the last update. Now I do not have a weather map to see the past or future weather systems. The video maps are too difficult to navigate. Take out the stupid stories and put back the weather maps Full Review

    I updated this app on 1-19-18 and afterwards my screen became blank. I found out how to fix this issue. Just restart your phone and the issue should be fixed. This worked for me so if it happens to someone else, please let me know if that helped you fix this issue. Thanks. Other than that this app is the best weather app that I have downloaded for weather. I trust this app when it comes to looking at the current air temperatures as well as the forecasts. I rated this app 5 stars years ago but as of the latest update I downgraded to 3 stars because of a few issues. First issue was the blank screen but now the major issue is that the apps latest update made the radar disappear. Why? I really like the radar map when it comes to Thunderstorms. Please bring back and I will rate 5 stars again. Thanks. Full Review

    This app just updated and now I don't see where the go run or allergy tracker are. Disappointed as I like using the go run feature. I've even restarted my phone. Otherwise I've always liked this app for all the information it gives me. Full Review

    First, the original Storm app was discontinued. The new Storm app doesn't even have a temperature icon on my notification bar. Now, this app has no radar, the temperature icon on my notification bar is too small, and there isn't even a widget with an extended forecast. Why did you guys ruin these apps? A detailed radar with storm tracking is one of the main things I look for in a weather app, especially living in the Midwest. I'm running out of options now that this app is being destroyed. Guess I will have to go back to Weather Underground and hope it keeps working. Full Review

Who's the idiot that thought it be a good idea to put the radar map under ROAD CONDITIONS ... Do they speak English? ... is that why they choose not to allow clear and concise navigation.... It's not rocket science people ... Full Review

    I loved this app until 1/18/18, other apps have failed to include radar, and apparently the weather channel has fallen into that also. They took the radar away and added a plethora of ads. Truly disappointed weather channel. Full Review

    SG Note 5 10-10-16 - With all of the entries I've been "given", I really wish the emails didn't consistently go from "Good Luck! You're entered to win the _____" to " You're still a winner to us Someone else won the _____". If I'm going to always lose, I'd rather NOT get my unsolicited entries & instead get the coins. After all, I'm trying to be able to afford a ps4 from Best Buy for my husband's 50th bday in 6 wks. All the "someone else won the $300 Best Buy gift card" is frustrating & kinda depressing.
