I used to be able to turn my phone sideways to view the radar but now I can't. Is this something that changed when the app was updated? Is it possible to have that option again? Otherwise it's a great app. I like that it lets me know when there's a warning but I wish the voice was louder.
Working in the travel industry all aspects of weather is important and this app does it all, locally, nationally, internationally. Personal travel snd business. Easy and complete. This app replaced my weather channel App years ago when TWC videos became overwhelmingly political. I just wanted weather.
It's a pretty good app and it's very practical & professional, BUT it can be annoying when it sends you the same weather alert every five minutes... but that only happens if a watch or warning has been created. Pretty good
I want to see the current temperature etc EVERY TIME I open the app. Often the advisories and ads appear where current conditions should be. Also it should be less steps to check the weather in another location. Not multiple steps to add a location and then multiple steps to delete that location. Otherwise, good app. Oh yeah, when it opens it says Fox 35 instead of Fox 2 at first.
YES! I have been wanting this. The new map, the hurricane tracking, and the storm details really helps and gets in more depth. I personally love weather and now that this app is advancing, I have been using it more. It is crazy now after the update. Very good job, and keep this up!
I will keep an eye on this for later use maybe. But for now it’s mostly just frustrating to use. Apps open in portrait mode, and won’t switch to landscape till you preform certain tasks, such as watch a weather report video. When it does switch view, top and bottom banners are huge... So, yeah it runs on a iPad, but there is no (imho) true support for the iPad.
The app is pretty good but I used to be able to see the traffic with my phone, now it gives me an error that my connection isn’t secure when I’m using Verizon or my home Wi-Fi . I wished it worked as I loved checking the traffic and now I can’t see traffic issues.
I have the weather app and when I want to watch the weather video it states I need the Fox 2 app. I downloaded the app and it takes me back to the weather app. No matter what I am doing it will not show the weather video. I should not need two apps to get the weather video outside the weather app.
The app resets your map settings each time you close it, resulting in all “alerts” being active when you re-open the map. Even Tropical Storm for Michigan?!? It prevents me from seeing radar at a glance and I hope this is fixed.
App was fine before. Everything i want to see when you open the home screen. They just updated the layout and it’s much less easy to use, I have to dig around to even find the temp outside. You’d think that would be on the home screen when you open it. Deleting this app
I like this app, but I noticed my battery’s charge was going down faster than usual. A look at settings showed this app was the reason for the drain on the battery. Had to delete it and that solved the problem.
You guys need to fix this app. I use a iPad and every time I try to watch the weather, it either don’t work at all or too many ads and other nonsense to contend with, usually the not working at all. Please fix as I watch fox2 on my tv all the time. Thanks.
I like that the app allows you to see detailed info on the radar. The only thing that really bugs me is that the forecast for the day changes 80 times a day. 5 minutes ago it said its going to be mostly cloudy and now it says showers and thunderstorms likely. It has changed 5 times already.
I use the fox 2 Detroit app which has a link to weather but not it forces to you download the weather authority app too. I don't like this, takes up unnecessary storage space on my phone when I used to be able to just get the weather information and news from one app. Not happy about this at all. Wrong move guys
I don't like the new weather app either , like how it was . Gave it a star because it still had some what of a radar to follow the rain clouds. Have Fox 2 app now I need weather app , no thanks , I'll try 4 or 7's news app
