  • Update 9.3.1 shuts down

    By AbbeyJKW
    I love this app but ever since I updated it on or about November 15, 2017, the app shuts down unexpectedly. Must just be a glitch or something?
  • Bring Back The Swipe!

    By mathguru1
    Why remove the most useful feature! There should also be more options for customizing.
  • Used to be better

    By TheHubKid
    Annoying lags and crashes 4 times out of 5 especially after the latest update. When you open the app it doesn’t automatically give you the weather of your current location but the last city/ town you had looked at on your previous use :/
  • Previous version was better

    By Randolph nj
    The previous version allowed me to swipe across the top to go to other locations. Now I'm taken to a list of my locations from which I have to choose, which I find annoying and inefficient. I also am annoyed by all the ads and videos. I find Weather Underground more user-friendly although it's less colorful.
  • Weather with a lot of baggage

    By C Swann
    Great weather but so much extraneous s$&t it takes forever to load. Tons of useless info. Just give us the weather!
  • Buggy, laggy and awkward layout

    By Uta Buuta Solo?
    One of the most consistently buggy and laggy apps I have ever downloaded. Scrolling lag on an iPhone 6S along with app crashes now and then. Layout is awkward and seems geared to maximize click-bait advertising. If this is what “Powered by Watson” means than I am worried about the future of IBM. There are better weather apps.
  • Problems

    By Nasheen12
    App is force closing.
  • Crashes

    By Kam's PC
    I love this app and have always used it for my weather. I have an iPhone 7, however whenever I open this app and scroll, it lags a ton. It also crashes at least twice when I use it. Please fix this!
  • Detest the ads

    By Spicejar
    Update July 2017-I used to love this app. Not so much anymore. Hate the ads so I basically use it for a few seconds to get the current local weather and then close it. Still only worth 2 stars. I hate the current version of the app. Crashes at least twice during use and the ads are beyond annoying. Update 11/2017 nothing has been fixed. Slow as molasses, crashing constantly and the ads, ugh. I used to love this app but now I hate it and use only when necessary
  • Please quit crashing!!

    By pepprdog
    Was fine, except the long range forecasts. Anything over one or two days is guessing, not really forecasting. Beyond that it’s pure voodoo. Sure wish it would quit crashing every time I open it, something it’s not done until today, IPhone 6s Plus.
