Thank God For This App
April 12, 2020 (The Easter Tornadoes) We received our alert in time to wake up our daughter, looker up some windows, and run to the opposite end of our Mobile Home..... In a matter of seconds our home was totally destroyed..... I thank God for this app because the end of the house that my daughter was sleeping on got ripped to shreds! If we hadn’t gotten the alert we wouldn’t have her here with us today and we probably would have been hurt badly..... Keep helping people be safe and prepared

Don’t have time to watch it anymore! It’s useless
I used to rely heavily on this application for a quick 60 seconds overview of the weather forecast, but recently they’ve added commercials that are LONGER than the 60 seconds weather forecast. I simply don’t have time to sit thru the commercials to get to a 60 seconds weather summary. The application is of no use to me anymore. Last Saturday, a horrendous storm passed through our area. I got a notification for an update on the first alert app. I opened the alert and there’s a freakin’ commercial…BEFORE we can see what the heck was happening outside! Keep in mind that we’d lost power, so we were relying on the app and Facebook updates 🤦🏾‍♀️. WLBT simply cannot need revenue bad enough to throw commercials on a 60 seconds weather update.

Loving the latest update.
One of my most used apps and one of my oldest apps. I’ve used it across multiple platforms and it’s awesome every single time. The latest update to the radar is perfect. I had the same idea years ago, guess I should’ve sent it to you. (The expand option) Wish I could give you 8 or 9 stars.

The pros and cons
One great pro about this app is that it is operated by the news themselves so I get the closest to correct as I can be. And one con about this app, it could be like a tiny thunderstorm, and it would send me like a dozen notifications, such as, “ lightning, strike 3 miles” or “thunderstorm warning until 4:45 pm in your area”. Those are the pros and cons

Quality/Performance is starting to suffer
App used to perform much better; in your attempt to improve and and capabilities your performance is starting to suffer; don't try to excuse this as a network congestion/bandwidth issue; your app is getting bloatwd and performance is suffering; you can't do or be everything to everyone; please focus on providing a high-performing experience with hourly, daily, and radar capabilities; If users want video or marketing clips don't bog down your app because of that...

Shouldn’t have left!
After moving out of the state I realized that WLBT 3 was the only news channel that gave me the best News ever. I have just moved back in town and I’m so glad to be able to get excellent news coverage from around the beautiful state of Mississippi.

This app WAS okay but.....
The radar was nice with the full screen option. Now it freezes up constantly as does the whole app. I have uninstalled it a couple of times then reinstalled it and it is still SLOW and freezes up. I might try it again in a few months. In this day and age there has to be a better option. Now the app looses the location which makes me have to restart my phone only to have it looses the location the next time I open the app. WAY TOO FRUSTRATING!!!

Hard to read and ver disappointed.
I use this app several times a day, more if weather is bad. The hourly and daily forecast now being black and white plus the layout makes it too difficult to read. I hate the radar image also. I used to be able to see the county outlines but can’t now. I guess this was an update but please either change this back or redesign. May have to start using the “weather “ app which I’ve never used as much as this one. So disappointed.

I love this app!
This app helped me know lots of things! When I first heard it, I thought it was not necessary. But then my mom told me the helpful things this app is, so I decided to get it. This app has been really helpful during these days (and yesterday) and I love this app!

Good app, but too many notifications.
The app works really well and is almost always up to date. However, it sends 2-3 notifications a day, even when no storms are predicted for the next 10 days. There needs to be an option for receiving only storm watch and storm warning notifications.

Please go back to original release!
Loved this app when it was first released. Best one by far. Then you updated and ruined it. No more addresses entered and radar is not nearly as good. Videos hardly ever play. It was so much better before!

Ok so far
I have have used a number of weather apps to try to find a happy medium but so far I have more than two apps on my phone I have used this app before and a sister style from my local tv channel from when I lived in another state. So I am back to try the main app for raycom here is the test. We will see how it fairs.

New Update is Horrible
Severe Thunderstorm warning and watch overlays in the radar are no longer the traditional yellow color. They are red and look like Tornado warnings. Also warning/watch overlays are not nearly as transparent as in the previous version which makes it much harder to actually see the weather. I used this app mostly for the radar but will no longer use it with this new update

Never correct with forecast !!!!
This is the worst weather app EVER . It very rarely is correct. They put whatever and then it constantly changes. I guess we all should have been weather reporters , you can just say whatever you want and rarely be right , still have a job and still get paid. Would not recommend this app to anyone unless it’s for a joke

First (Spam) Alerts
I’m fed up with receiving multiple push msgs each day. Until I deleted the app I could count on 2-5 click-bait First (Spam) Alert msgs ‘The forecast has changed, get the latest now!’ as tho pending doom is looming between now and the last three updates. Only reason I had the app was for extreme severe weather (tornado) alerts. I’d rather take my chances on my own.

Very disappointed
This app is pretty much useless. Don’t think your going to use this app for weather information when your tv goes out. It crashes half the time and the other half you get a message saying this application isn’t available in your area. Even though it used to work in my area.

My map isn’t green anymore!
It’s black. I use the Satellite option because I’m not interested in the Dark and Light map options. I liked the green map. Perhaps add a Green map option. Everything else about the app I like.

Coveage is okay, but the ads are absolutely mind numbing
I’m in the app trying to watch the coverage videos and I get met with a 30 second long ad. Although it’s understandable, you cannot click or close out for a second without it glitching the entire app.

Many Ads
This may be a good weather app but it has so many larger ads that I can’t tell. This app is not about providing weather. It’s about selling ads and they sell many. They never mention the ads while pushing it on TV. There are many apps to get local weather without all the ads.

Wrong location
The main headline is always some place else. You would think the app would put the headline in relation to the zine of the user. Not saying the exact location but things that have some effect. Example: Fred is going into Florida and heading North. This will have no effect on East Texas. So why is it the head line?

Don’t need to know about those states
I have my app in my town in Oklahoma and that works just fine but all of the videos that keep popping up are about Mississippi and Louisiana. Why would I be interested in those two states on a minute by minute status? It’s ridiculous.

This app used to be great and very accurate. The new radar is terrible, slow, and inaccurate because it’s so slow. Thunderstorms used to be yellow. Now all alerts are red which makes seeing thunderstorm vs tornado warning difficult. Bring back the old radar view!
