Really like using your app along with my family. Daily usages from all my family. One thing that hasn’t happened unlike the KAITV8 news app. Unable to get to the News App because of locations services. I don’t allow any app to track myself. Would hate to have stop using the Weather App if force to used! Thank for a Great App.
Honestly, the weather (hourly, daily, radar) part of this app is pretty good which is the reason they get 2 stars. The videos have ads as long as the videos themselves which is terribly annoying but understandable when you have people giving you money for the add space. The part that bugs me the most is the notifications everyday of meteorologists using this like a social media platform and letting you know that it’s Sunny or cold (as if you couldn’t already tell by using basic senses). As far as I can tell if you turn off notifications, you also won’t get the important notifications like thunderstorms and tornadoes. It’s just unbelievably ridiculous to have daily notifications for normal, basic weather circumstances.
My family and I have witnessed the Region 8 storm team go above and beyond for their community! I love the fact, when it’s “spring break/vacation season” they pay attention to severe weather elsewhere, knowing that parts of their community are there and probably can’t keep up with the local weather out of state! We feel so blessed to be able to call the Region 8 Storm team, ours!😊.
The app is great for checking the weather, but I have noticed an abundance of ads that consistently interrupt important videos. It appears that the app uses its own video player which is the reason behind this issue. On a positive note, the radar feature is quite useful. However, the recently added future setting is a bit confusing.
Thanks to the KAIT8 storm team we was very informed of the horrible storms that hit us Friday night . Alerts came across our phones which allowed us to get to our save zone . We just want to let you know how much you are appreciated . Thanks again to Ryan Vaughan and the storm team .
This app has so much potential. It used to work ok..... but JUST ok. Not very accurate with the weather and the radar, when tapping on future, turns everything to a weird cartoon level map. But now, won’t open. Refuses to work. Uninstalled/reinstalled, cleared my cookies/cache, and restarted my phone’s everything is up to date and now I can’t get passed the first screen. I don’t even get the ad everyone is complaining about. Welp, I guess it’s back to ACCUWEATHER, which is a pain, but at least it works and is much more accurate.
Region8 weather team is Amazing! 5 stars for them but the app is not helpful. We don’t have cable/satellite so we watch live storm coverage via the app. During severe weather, we have to watch an ad before being able to watch live coverage. Definitely unacceptable during warnings! And if it buffers, we have to watch another ad. Also, the images on the newest update are not great.
Thank you channel 8 News for making us feel safe through some of the hardest times we are blessed to have such a Great team it seems that lately every weekend is something different I know I feel better when I turn on my TV. I know that your there to help us through the day or night .❤️
I recently moved here from Oklahoma. I was able to catch the news live on my tablet but here I can only get Memphis or Kentucky. News and especially the weather from Jonesboro is so much more informative for us.
I love our news and weather team, but to check a quick weather report or see an update when I get an alert on my phone should not require a 30 second full volume commercial. I get that advertising pays the bills- but advertisers should know that I now automatically connect your business to the frustration level I have with this app. Show me some still images, or make it short and sweet. This is not TV.
These guys know by now how everyone in Jonesboro and surrounding areas feel...give them the well deserved Christmas bonus or at the very least, put something a little extra in their Christmas Stocking❣️
The Region 8 Storm Team, are the most dependable and accurate news team in the country. This is their community, this is their mission, and they do it well. Through their dedication and commitment, they are life savers.
Sometimes the weather lies but it’s ok maybe another part of Arkansas but it’s a good app I mean, but only one thing, every time I watch a video on the app there’s a mark martin/Kroger/etc ad, please fix this!
I live in the Region 8 area. I am on a chat group with hot air balloon pilots from all over the USA. One of the pilots from another state recommended the KAIT weather app as a good resource for weather forecast. I was surprised by his post but this app is spot on for our use. Thanks KAIT
I’ve been living here in Jonesboro Arkansas for about 6-7 months. I watch KAIT8 every single day. Y’all are the only news & weather station that I watch. Y’all are the best. I have the KAIT8 app on my iPhone and iPad. I definitely give y’all 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
When moments count and you need live feed you still have commercials first. When the storm hit last week I pulled up my app and and had to watch a 30 second commercial before I got the live feed. Just saying. Need someone to sponsor the commercial free when there’s thunderstorm warning
I have had this app for almost a year. Husband has it too. All of the sudden the other day, it started saying not available in your area. Weird, because it worked just this morning in the same place. Uninstalling and reinstalling doesn’t solve it either. I liked the app, but I won’t keep it if this isn’t fixed. Waste of space on my phone at this point.
I don't mind the commercial at the beginning, but everytime my phone times out or i switch between apps i have to watch the commercial over and over again, it should start where i left off at least for a while.
The new storm tracks colors and icons are confusing and annoying to try and keep up with, especially during severe weather. If it’s confusing for a twenty something year old, imagine how confusing it is for an elderly person! Time for another weather app, I suppose. Hope the developers plan to change it soon! If it changes, I’ll be back!
Have always loved this app but since the new update it has glitches and I hate the radar now. It used to be a clear picture and very informative but now has a “cartoonish” look to it that makes it look very low quality.
Not accurate, just useful for entertainment purposes
This app is not accurate at all. Not even close. It says 10 degrees and it’ll be 3 degrees. It says 1 inch of snow and we get 6. It says wind is out of the west at 6 mph and it’ll be north winds at 20 mph. Not a serious tool for those who depend on the weather. I recommend weather underground or similar for much more accurate information.
Don't mind a Comercial in apps but in this case put it at the end. When you get a notification of sever weather it makes you watch a Comercial before you can get the information. If minutes count this don't work. Also if app times out you have to watch the Comercials again.
I love this app. I go to this app every time there is thunder or lightning near my area. But sometimes on the radar it will not let me choose past, future, or past and future. But either wise I love this app and is very helpful.
When a weather alert comes on you have to wait for an ad to finish before you can hear the alert. Seems like a waste of time if it’s an emergency. I have started using other weather apps for severe weather notifications.
