    THIS APP gives me just what I need...an accurate weather report for my area. I don't need a bunch of fancy shot that I can't use or even know what it is so I really appreciate the accuracy right amount of detail and exactly what I'm looking for. Full Review

    Everything is as about as accurate as a meteorologist can be, and it's more convenient given you don't have to wait for the news to find out what today or the rest of the week has in store. I could use fishing forecast info though, that'd be the only thing I wish it had updates for but maybe I just haven't figured that out, thanks. More people need this app support and download free now :) Full Review

    I really don't know why I bother checking the app because it's always so wrong. Sometimes I look at it just so I know what the weather isn't going to be like. I look forward to days it's going to rain because I don't have to deal with annoying people at my job and i get my hopes up when I see there's a 90% chance of rain, only for it to be sunny all day Full Review

    Although this app has a lot of different features built in, it's just worst app. It's constantly freezing or just straight up crashing. You'd think the weather channel would invest in better technology. I seriously hated using this app. I'd rather pay for a weather app that works than deal with this buggy and unreliable app. Full Review

    Mary Hashimoto Published date: July 20, 2017

    I love The Weather Channel, on app, vid and cable. But the app is awkward because the features are not in order of their importance, and the ad cancel buttons are too small. Also the ad makes it skip the vid you were just going to watch, and it doesn't let you navigate up & down to pick the one you wanted. Great if you had a top navigation bar or drop-down boxes so we could go directly to the features and vids we want right away. Full Review

    All hail to The Weather Channel! Better than AccuWeather, Yahoo, and WeatherBug, IMO. Useful, efficient, extremely accurate, informative. The UI looks sleek and clean. Love the real-time rain alerts, but miss the old notification alert tone. Why did you remove it? Please bring it back. Radar could use work, as it doesn't always move/work like it should. Cut down on the ads and I will give it a 5 star rating. Full Review

    Feels Like- Awkward! How would programmers know what-"Feels Like"-what? List facts, let the user decide! The 2x2 widget doesn't always update (w/ default loc. set)- usually need to discard and re-enable widget. Radar maps loading and animating very SLOWLY on 4G and 5GHz Wifi (better with 4GLTE). Apparently, this mobile app "feels" accurate to its developers. Full Review

    I drive a truck cross country and regional and use the weather app to monitor weather conditions. It has been very helpful especially the active radar feature. The app helps me trip plan and avoid areas where bad weather may create dangerous road conditions and safety concerns. Full Review

    Great app! Works super! I use it to see the optimal time of day to go for a walk/run and to check when allergens are high and I should stay indoors. I also get alerts when storms are heading my way. Keep up the great work! Full Review

    Published date: July 13, 2017

    Too many ads and sensationalist videos, trying to get more views with crappy content is so lame. Plus it won't forget other locations I looked at once and tried to remove, it keeps bringing them back. Useful updates during severe weather though, and easy to use. Full Review

    I took the chance and updated the app and it works fine for me. Refreshes faster than the old version. great job! Edit: a new update makes my phone unusable. I'm going to have to uninstall and give one star until this is fixed. Full Review

    Beverly Dorsey Published date: July 15, 2017

    I love the warning notices, especially living in Oklahoma. And having the radar is great, especially when our satellite tv goes out, and it always does if it is raining. So I rely on The Weather Channel app quite frequently and have installed it on everyone in my family's phones, recommended it to all of my friends, who all installed it as well! Full Review

    A Google User Published date: July 13, 2017

    Radar is obscured by the ridiculous wind/hail/etc arrows. Plus the radar automatically loads to show the time lapse which I absolutely hate. If something isn't broken, please stop trying to fix it. The entire app has become too 'showy' and the size just makes it run so slow. I think it's time to find myself a simple weather app without the unnecessary bells and whistles. Full Review

    The Capps Published date: July 7, 2017

    The weather radar doesn't seem to ever work anymore (it gets hung up mid-frame), and the weather predictions have been completely wrong on a few occasions. I still like the app, but I would like to see these issues fixed. Thanks Full Review

    It gives an up to date Dewpoint! When people, even meteorologists, talk about the humidity or muggy weather, it is the Dewpoint that causes the mugginess. Dewpoint is a much more accurate measurement of moisture in the air than humidity.. When it hits 70, it feels tropical! Just a PSA... Full Review

    Honestly, the app itself is great, but you are nearly driven mad watching the same ONE commercial for weeks at a time on EVERY video you watch. I understand having a set of rotating adds, but this is rediculous. The old version of this app was great but this new version has me looking for weather alternatives just based on the adds!

    Living in MI, this app is a must. It helps me determine if I will get a headache/migraine due to the changing pressure. The main is knowing how prep for traveling to and from work. Full Review

    Here lately the "future view" of radar doesn't want to load, but "current" loads right up. Whether on a WiFi connection or good cell tower internet has no effect. Reloading the page sometimes helps but not always. Full Review

    Pretty accurate, seems to under estimate conditions/temps most of the time. Good radar, just wish I didn't have to scroll allllll the way to the bottom to view it..past a bunch of ads and useless videos. Full Review

    Won't track and update my location even though this feature is enabled. If I go into the search there is an option to click "my location" but it does nothing. No matter how many times I refresh the city stays the same and is wrong. It's telling me I'm across the county. This has been an issue since I first downloaded and has yet to be fixed. Other apps have no trouble finding my location so it's not a hardware issue. Full Review

    Siana Hasley Published date: July 14, 2017

    The only complaint I have is the barrage of commercials when I watch the videos they are providing to us. I really enjoy the videos themselves, however, you can't watch more than a single one before being hit with the same damn commercial over and over and over again. So, so Frustrating! Now I just ignore the videos but feel like I'm missing out. Full Review

    Cheryl Gartenberg Published date: July 8, 2017

    The app is easy to use, and provides all the weather information I might want. It seems to be fairly accurate most of the time, but there are some clear misses, for example when my area is experiencing a thunderstorm, and the app indicates we are having partly cloudy weather! Full Review

    Just updated the app couple weeks back, the new version is so bad. I like the old version. The new one is very confusing when trying to find the info. The ios one is so much easier to use. Need a better user friendly interface. Full Review

    Robert Szivak Published date: July 16, 2017

    This is one of my go-to weather forecasting apps. TWC offers clear, concise, user-friendly forecasts. I have only one complaint: TWC is a shameless swamp of click-bait video titles. Joking aside, almost every video The Weather Channel runs is at least somewhat underwhelming, simply because of misleading, sometimes completely untruthful, titles. If you want to have a handy weather app at your disposal, give TWC a try. Full Review

    New widgets look nice but don't have enough info. The one with current conditions plus today and tomorrow forecast was perfect but no longer available! Update 7/18/17: changes over time have made this a much better app. Now it's much easier to get the info you need right away. Full Review

    Tim Arnold Published date: July 12, 2017

    31.2 mb for an update, I mean really? This isn't the weather app for you if you are just on a 4G data base. Personally I think it's a lot of junk and nothing of value. Especially when it causes my phone to crash each time I would use it. Greed! Like everything else in America, greed has ruined even getting good reliable weather coverage. Full Review
