You can do better ! love Mark, hate all the ads
I’ve been recording Mark and watching his tv weather for many years and now listen to their podcast (the other three meteorologists are great in too) and I don’t even live in Portland but in Central Oregon. I rarely get apps but thought this might be a good way to supplement my NOAA pages for wx info without using my TV. It does have some good features like radar and detailed hourly fx, graphics & the news clips. But forcing us to watch a 30 second ad (without any way to stop it ) every single time you try to watch a handy video clip is really irritating. I can see one -maybe - but not when you’re going through the last few hours of video clips. it becomes untenable. Many other sites play an ad for three or four seconds once, and then allow you to skip it if you want. You can do better! With winter approaching, even an El Niño one, I’d like to be able to watch the little video clips without going to the TV, but not sure I can suffer SO many ads. And yes, as someone else said, it’s busy with ads in the middle of the forecasts too. Cluttered. Hope you can improve this app, tks. ❄️

Cluttered, messy, BUT v. helpful
This app is almost -bizarre- in how it functions. The video I click on plays in a different place than where I clicked on it. Very confusing overall. Could be a Textbook example of ‘how to make a user think they’re crazy’. Many, MANY ads. — Having said all that, there’s cool content like ocean wave height information, ocean temperatures, snow levels graphs, rain measurements, and forecasts for the day, three days, and seven days, as well as radar images for clouds, precipitation, sun breaks. — I have not used any other weather app so can’t compare and contrast this one with an alternative. I really like Mark Nelson so that’s why I’ll continue to use this app in spite of all its downsides.

The last update of app
I’m not really liking the way the app now looks with the pictures that they post as what the weather will be for the day. They used to line up with the app as soon as it loaded and you could see it but now you have to play around with the screen to view whatever it is that you want to see . just seems a little inconvenient to me, I would rather that it be at a glance so I don’t have to waste my time finding what it is that I want to see.

New Weather App
I love the new weather app. It has so much useful information that is organized very well making everything easy to find. Plus you have the weather cams too. Thanks for the new weather app.

Miss the 10 day forecast.
I’ve been using this app as my primary weather source for years and will continue to do so. The addition of the radar feature is really cool, but I do miss the 10 extended forecast. I would bump this back up to a 5 star review if that feature was brought back. P.S. Thank you Mark Nelson for never blowing the forecast out of proportion.

Last weather updat
I really liked the older weather app. It did what I wanted. I have family in other states and also different city's in Oregon. It was so easy to check what theirs rather was doing. Click what you saved and their weather popped up. This new app does not meet my needs. I have tried your new app, I don't like it! Wish I could get the old app! I would give no stars for this app if I could. Unhappy

Station Alert
When my cell phone tells me “station alert” that does not say enough to make it useful. Please add meaningful phrase like for example: “thunderstorms, Umatilla and Union Counties “. Thanks

Not accurate ‘current location’
I’m trying to see what the forecast will be like where I’m at right now, and I go to look at the incoming weather system, and I zoom in and it has my current location in a whole different city... Totally inaccurate! Not cool

Font size
Your station has the best weather reports and articles but the font size for the app is way too small. Please add the ability to adjust it in app settings or increase the size across the board. On an iPhone 7 it is too small to read.

It talked to me!!
I have never had a weather app talk to me. And it shouldn’t talk. It started talking while I was home alone and it gave me the biggest fright ever. I don’t know how to turn it off so I deleted the app.

No Unnecessary Stuff
Gets right to the point and gives me exactly what I'm after: 10 day forecast, maps, hourly, and alerts. That's all I need, and that's what I get. If the forecast changes suddenly, the info on the app changes also. It seems to have a different forecast than Accuweather on occcasion, but Fox 12WX is local. So I watch that one more.

I don't usually write reviews but am making an exception for this app. Fox 12 in my opinion is one of the more accurate weather forecasts in the Portland area, the problem I have with this app is the amount of advertising it has. You can barely see the 7 day forecast for the advertising! The snow report is a joke - also barely usable as it just opens a website, which is not localized and too small to read. I am not interested in Breckenridge web cams - I want to see Timberline and Batchelor. Places that have more relevance. Come on guys you can do better!

Not accurate
They must have the interns run this app. I understand that weather forecasting is a hit and miss thing (which is still kind of amazing considering our technological level these days) but when they say 20% chance of rain, they fail to mention that the next 5 hours of 20% adds up to 100%. There forecast says cloudy, it's raining. They say partly cloudy, it's mostly cloudy. The app doesn't even match the T.V. forecast and neither one matches what's on the web site. At least if they matched it would seem less like different people practicing Voo- Doo in separate rooms at the station.

Stop auto playing audio
I like this stations weekly forecast graphics and the live radar, but I dont need the video with audio to stay playing (off screen so I don't even know where it's coming from) especially when I'm checking the app at work. Please give us the option of using our data to play the video when we want to.

Most Accurate PDX Radar Info
My Dog loves this app. Need the radar information to schedule daily walks & this app is the Awesome!! Have tried multiple local sources but found the Fox 12 Weather Radar as best for accuracy & predicting incoming rain. Didn't realize that radar sources are so different but Highly recommend Fox 12.

Great zoomable animated radar
This is a very nice limited-scope app. I like the animated radar loops; you can zoom in to your location, and the radar data is partially transparent, so you can still see the city names behind it -- nice. One suggestion: include daily weather blog from one of the ch. 12 meteorologists.

Underrated app
This app is very similar to the functionality of intellicast which doesn't have it's own app, so this one is great, and the temperature map is a top of the line function and on many accounts is the most accurate tool of it's kind. This app is great for it's radar as well, must get in my opinion!!!

Great app
Best weather app I have found. Radar is great to have, options are numerous from wind to earthquakes to cloud and precipitation. I have found this app to very useful. Hoping for same functions on droid and availability on windows apps.

Branding update = poor app
I've used this app for years and it's been my 1st choice for weather info. After the branding update, I've lost the ability to see the current earthquake map. It just uses my current location, so no more checking the forecast before I go visit friends in the valley. My search for a new weather app begins today :( so long fox 12 it was good till you tried to fit more than just weather into your "weather" app

Used to be great!
Have been using this app for over a year, but have recently become overwhelmed by the endless loop of Chase commercials! Really??!? Is this entirely necessary? I'm now deleting and changing to another local station - one without the incessant interruptions of commercials! Sorry to do this because I really enjoy the information & format of the local morning team - can't abide by the rhetoric of the same two ads every 10 seconds though. You guys missed the mark on this latest format!

Second "branding" Upgrade???
This second update is no better then the last one. Please take the app back to the previous version before the "branding" updates. This app was my go to app for all weather. These upgrades are serious downgrades. I can no longer look for weather conditions in other parts of the state. The radar is a lot less detailed in terms of earthquake info and storm tracking. I'm now looking for a different app to use. Lost me as a user!

I used to love this app
Before the "branding" update I only used this app for weather. It was simple and clean. The radar was the first thing you saw. The temp was right there. And I could easily find the 10-day forecast. After the update, everything became cluttered. I can't locate anything I want or need without doing some digging. Ultimately I deleted the app. I wish I wouldn't have upgraded. I loved the app. Now I can't find anything similar to the old app and I am desperately looking.

Apparently NOT the ONLY ONE!
Like just about everyone else who has written a review, this "branding update" did nothing more than make your app just like everyone else, the ones I would never use! FOX12 Weather goes in that category now. What a shame. There was so much to like with the previous version. Always wonder if marketing folks ever actually do any research to see if their users will actually like the changes. Off to find another app.

Update is a downgrade
One thing that set the Fox 12 weather app apart from all of the other weather apps out there was the ability to track cells according to their strength. Another was the ability to see seismic activity on the map. Both of these features are gone with the "branding update." There is no reason for me to keep the app anymore, as it's now just like every other weather app.

What the &@$# did you do?
Used the previous version of this app daily and as a fave on my home screen. This new version is COMPLETELY WORTHLESS. The reviews show I'm not alone - why don't you listen to your users? I used the 10 day forecast regularly and had tons of places saved to check weather as I travel often... Too bad. But you can see our weather mans face instead. Not a good trade off. Fix it!!!

This new app is very hard to figure out (and I'm a tech savvy gal!). The home page looks cool but too hard to navigate. Would you consider bringing back the features of the previous app such as multiple locations?

Pretty, but...
Aesthetically more pleasing than the previous version, but is a bit buggy on my iPhone 4s. Don't like that it's not easy to change my location. Beach forecast does nothing on my phone, just hangs on an ad... Speaking of which, there seems to be even more ads. Try again please.

There is no way to submit feedback, so I am going old school and writing it in a review. Since December 21 update, the radar opacity is so high, I can't see any roads or cities on the base map. When rain is 100% covering my area (often in Portland), I see a sea of green with a blue dot in the middle. Not useful. Otherwise, I like the app.

Was my fav weather app
What happened to my other saved locations? Or being able to pick wind speed, temperature, or road weather? Those were some of the features I liked BEST on the previous version, but now it looks like those options are gone. Guess I'll start using a different weather app from now on.

Awful! Unstable, annoying pop up ads!
The interface for this app is one of the worst I've ever seen...being a weather app you have to click through several screens to actually get weather info. There are annoying pop up ads that feel like phishing schemes. Very disappointed.
