  • Love it but.

    By Imca39
    Love the weather app but would be nice if when you are checking weather in your area and checking weather forecast we don't have to scroll past weather videos around the USA. Like to see my forecast 1st . Don't really care what's going on in Texas or Florida. That's what my news is for. All I care to see is what's going on at my home. Also when viewing radar it's showing a hour or more slow. When I want to view rain or storms in my area like to see it live. Radar is fixed . Now when clicking on it it's at real time. But don't understand why earthquakes are on the weather channel. Still to many videos between my local forecast! Please give us a option to move tiles so our local forecast is on top.
  • Was great, now terrible

    By thisfatguy
    Either this app is no longer getting tested, or they're testing with ads turned off. The app is so slow now it's unusable. It's unfortunate because this used to be a great app, but the stuttering and delay is deal breaker. Time to find another weather app.
  • Too many glitches

    By tolsonwayne
    Seriously the absolute most terrible glitchy app ever made. It's made way too complicated and terrible execution. Will look for alternatives!
  • Slow and full of ads/videos

    By Tleea
    Look, all I want to know is the current weather conditions. I don’t want to buy anything, I don’t want to watch videos of stuff that is completely not relevant to the current or forecasted weather. App is slow to open and slow to scroll thru do to videos auto playing. I remember back when I paid for this app to hide ads but they brought them back. There are better options out there and I’m going to them.
  • Latest update

    By HO1
    Latest update fixed the crashing. Thanks.
  • Stop showing graphic videos

    By Nzjdjdjdjdbdkdkdosns
    Please stop showing graphic images and videos. I went to look at the weather first thing in the morning and as I scroll down there's a gruesome and graphic photo after the earthquake. Please stop. I don't want to see depressing images/videos when I'm looking at the weather and the app shows them all the time
  • SLOW and awful

    By buffangus12
    Recent updates have made the app useless. It now is super slow and takes forever. Another update and nothing fixed. Absolutely useless app!
  • Too SLOOWWW!!

    By _danaberry
    All the videos and ads slow this app down soooo much. It's obnoxious. It takes forever to scroll down because everything is loading and bogging the whole app down. Maybe just make news headlines that you can click on to watch in a separate area rather than force videos on people who just want to quickly check the weather. Oh and the actual website is 10x worse. It's a headache to check the weather with The Weather Channel.
  • What happened?

    By Jcondo2
    Suddenly it’s difficult to swipe through locations. I keep getting this notice that “Weather can’t be updated at this time” and to “Check your internet connection” when I’m on WiFi. This used to be my go to weather app. Now I use WU.
  • Most popular but not the best

    By Onfus
    Every time you open the app it takes a while to display weather information. Ditch the logo animation. There is no way to stream live video not even paying and you need to pay $4 to watch the videos because the constant adds - slingo in my case - make playback unwatchable. And those videos from “the lift” are essentially the same over and over...
