Live Stream
I enjoy the app but I SHOULD NOT have to go to Facebook to watch a tornado warning that’s effecting my area. I went to the weather app to watch James Spann and see the weather alert and there is NO live stream of the the weather. I can’t get anything in tv and have to stream it through Facebook. THIS NEEDS TO BE FIXED AND NOW!!! I’m only giving it 3 stars because it’s still a good app but you need to work on the live stream! I am upset as I am not able to find any info on potential tornadoes in my area except on freaking Facebook!

This “WEATHER” app spams you with notifications that aren’t even weather related—EVEN when you turn off “Station Notifications” from your local TV station. Most of the other notifications that ARE actually weather related don’t have anything to do with warning you in the event of severe weather. I don’t need the app to tell me it’s going to be a bright, sunny day or that storms happened yesterday... Eleven or more irrelevant notifications a day from this one app make me want to turn off ALL the notifications, which would of course make it where I wouldn’t get the important, lifesaving ones when needed. What would really make this app better, in addition to fixing the above, would be to make the load time faster (the splash screen stays on for too long) and to put the LIVE weather videos with James Spann on the app. Otherwise, what’s the point of having an app? I can get NOAA alerts from other apps. There were no video updates for 5+ hours on the recent deadly storm situation the other day as the situation started to get bad and after live videos ELSEWHERE already had been giving detailed info on the potential tornadoes that were popping up all over the map. If I hadn’t gotten my weather info FROM SOMEWHERE ELSE, I could have been in real trouble that day. Please add LIVE videos to the app as severe weather is being covered. Thank you!

Stations should hold these creators to account
This is a highly necessary and useful app that has been hijacked by it’s creators/maintainers, absolutely debilitating this fantastic weather team. 1. This app freezes devices. One must shut down and restart their device to even get it to open temporarily. 2. The current is not current. Just one example: often outside your window will be utterly overcast (not foggy)with zero clouds on the map. Not all clouds show and it is difficult to discern clouds from fog. 3. Fire? Don’t see it as an option. Why? Large wildfires should be visible on radar, no? 4. There is too much parsing of info on radar. 5. There are not enough options for necessary information. I have seen and experienced the same on other stations’ apps who use the same radars. In this particular case, James Spann has saved countless lives in his weather reporting. In this station’s area it can be critical to survival to pay close attention and have the latest information; the purpose of this app. It is a shame to see this weather team, this critical info, and the viewers who rely upon it so seriously hampered by the actions of the creators of this app.

Recents updates
I’m a production manager and have used this app for years. The app for us is not as useful because you took the past away. We look at all weather patterns to help make job site calls on concrete pours and there important decisions. Please add the feature back. For now we are looking to other apps for this information. We keep a look out for further updates. Thank you !

Only weather app I trust.
I have to think the low star rating is from jealous competitors. I have four weather apps on my phone. This one is consistently the most accurate. I’ve been all over the county in the last year. This app follows right along. And it gives me notifications for areas important to me, not just where I am.

Doesn’t always open
The app does not always open. I have to turn my phone off and let it reboot. Afterwards, the app will open 3, maybe 4 times, then it will open to photo of James Spann and freeze. I’ve had my phone checked and was told the problem is with the app. I have the version with the option of the live weather broadcast. My husband has older app that does not have this option, and his app always works fine. The App Store will not allow me to get older app. I have notified the news station of this problem several weeks ago, but the problem still persists.

Rules guy
The app is fairly accurate but here are the issues. 1) it takes a LONG time to even load. I love the three of them but I really don’t want to see them that long 2). I don’t really care about the radar as the main thing. I want temp, wind, forecast and rain probability. They’re there but heck they are isolated in the lower left corner in a font that is almost impossible to see. That should be the main focus. If I were you I’d find a different weather app.

Very good app
The app is crashing every time I try to select “Gatlinburg,TN” from the drop down list. Also, I love and trust James Spann, and that is why I got this app. It doesn’t disappoint. The only reason I’m not giving it 5 stars is because it takes way too long to open. I like looking at James, but not for THAT long! Haha Please make it open faster!!

Future Past & Now radar
****Update. No worries. I’m deleting the app. Weather Bug takes seconds to open and is more accurate to my area since the last update of 3340. I need accuracy and I’m not getting it from 3340. **** It’s stuck on Future since the update. I would love to see the now radar so I can be weather aware. But the option to change the button is no longer available. I had to download Weather Bug to see this option. Please fix this.

This was a good app in the beginning. Very accurate. But not anymore. I cannot believe James Spann promotes this app. It is unreliable. You look at the planned weather just a day or two out and then look again the next day and the temperature jumps or it says sunny weather a day or two before only to change to rainy last minute. I am deleting this app. It is not worth the frustration anymore. Abc33/40 you should be ashamed to have your station’s call letters on this app.

This has potential to be a great app. It is hampered by several things. 1) If you multitask, like most phone users and swipe out of the app, it will show the splash screen and you must wait for it to attempt to reload the data again. 2) If for some reason it can’t load the weather data, the app just sits on the map with no weather overlay. There is no option to refresh. You must close the app and hope it reloads on the next try. 3) The weather data loading process on this app is apt to fail regularly on this app even with a good internet connection. 1 Star because that’s the lowest I can give, +1 for James Spann and his team, who despite this app, are a valuable resource for the state of Alabama. Especially during severe weather season.

Out of area notifications
This app continues to give me updates for an area that I’m no where around. I drove down I65 passing by the Calera exit and now I keep getting “Heavy Rain Detected in your Location”, NO- I’m 42 miles from there. Plus, I don’t get any notifications for where I’m actually at. App needs some way to clear the cache of past locations at least. Also, got to love clicking the “App Support” link- it only opens the ABC33/40 apps News Feed! 👍🏼👍🏼

So far so good..... I like how you can add different areas and title them. That way I can keep up with alerts for my college kid and parents. I also like how it includes traffic along with the weather. I was skeptical because of the bad reviews but it's James Span so how can you really go wrong? Taking the chance and trying it out

I want to like this app, and I do like the radar much better than other apps in terms of accuracy. But if I look at the radar and navigate to another app and back, the radar flashes off and on and I can’t see what I want to see, necessitating me to kill the app and reopen. Such a pain! Please fix this!

Please change the update
This update seems to be a step backwards. The radar has became less clear, and the map was better in previous versions. The warning colors are also worse. It is very hard to tell the difference between a serve thunderstorm warning and a tornado warning. This app was better in the previous version. Please update it for the better.

Current temp is often badly off
Where does this app pull current temp? It is frequently 10 or more degrees off from actual temp. Were it not for this defectI would hav egiven 5 stars. Everything else works fine. By the way...this bug also affects Samsung Galaxy S7 as well as iPad.

So not up to date
Ive had this app for a while, and it it has gone way downhill. Lately, I get an alert that there is rain in my location. But the app shows nothing. I check the app every morning to see what the weather is to do. No rain! Yay so I open my windows to keep the heat down. Boom.! Rain!! Bad app! I even looked yesterday and app says no rain but it was pouring down!! HeVy rain! Here it goes again! But app shows no rain.

Never Accurate
For James Spann to be the best meteorologist in the whole world, this app surely ain’t what it do. It’s NEVER right. It’ll say it’s gonna rain all day & it’ll be sunny. Every time. There’s no in between. It’s always wrong. I know James Spann doesn’t run the app, but you’d think they would follow suit to his predictions of the weather! It hasn’t been right for years. I prefer the weather channel or just seeing for yourself what the weather is gonna do.

I expect more from a James Spann employer
I truly expect more from a employer of James Spann . This USED to be my go to weather app and I hate I have to look elsewhere for radar service . For the past year the radar has been glitchy or won’t even load, showing a blank screen when rain or storms are on top of us. Please invest in the technology necessary to keep up with your awesome live coverage. I HATE having to go to another app to get needed updates on the weather. And I promise I’m not a competitor giving a bad review, hence stating how bad we need you guys back on top of your game. I’m only giving this review because n hopes that someone that matters will see this and know that not all is well.

Used to be the best
I have praised this app for years as the best but it’s in decline. Can’t get radar to load with full 5g service. I guess all those ads have priority to load in the background to sell my info before my radar will load. Becoming more inaccurate with time. Time to move on.

Change the opening screen
Look, I’m as big a James Spann fan as anybody, but I don’t want to look at him angrily pointing at me every single time I open the app. The splash screen reappears even if I exit and immediately return to the app. Just put the station logo on the splash screen and calm down with the staged talent photos

I just updated and now the splash screen is just as annoying but isnt properly scaled to my screen size. This does not bode well for the rest of the app. Guys, if I have to see a stern Spann pointing at me everytime i switch back to this app, at least get the image right.

Slowest app on the face of this earth
It’s a super easy app to use, super specific, all around great app. Except if I need to check the radar during severe weather, I’d probably die in a tornado before the thing loaded. I’m currently Co piloting in the car in downtown Atlanta traffic in severe weather and you people are no help to me except taking up space on my phone. Fix it, and I’ll give a better review! 🙂

Too many notifications
I only need notifications on the weather when it’s bad. I don’t need it to tell me it hot out. I already know that. Best weather app is dark sky. Your watch and phone only goes off if the weather is bad. Not a add to buy something then the weather.

33/40 weather app down to 3 stars on reviews now! I tried to tell them the new watch/warning color scheme was confusing....not to mention dangerous when trying to ”respect the polygon”! Especially if the polygon looks like every other watch/warning on the map! Bad decisions for new update!

Since the update this is the worst radar. If there’s a watch or warning, you can’t see the radar underneath. I’ve tried adjusting the transparency but it’s not enough. Most of the time the daily forecast at the bottom doesn’t even show up. Please go back to the way it was.
