Very dependable for me.
I’ve been using this app from KATVWX for several years. It’s helped me while traveling in bad wx several times. In fact my wife and I both have this app on our phones and more than one time we have received wx alerts at the very same moment. I’ve gotten out of flash flood situations a couple of times because of quick, accurate warnings. About 5 years ago while traveling from Hattisburg, MS to Arkansas in very bad wx conditions, we received a tornado warning from the KATVWX app of a tornado in our immediate area and told to take cover immediately. We were located just inside city limits of south side of McGee, MS on hwy 49. We were north bound. We pulled into service station immediately as there was dark clouds ahead of us north of McGee with lots of wind. I never saw a funnel but was glad to get the warning to take cover. There has been other times of traveling through Mississippi, Louisiana and Arkansas in bad wx and I was always glad to know I was in touch with KATVWX app. I always feel more secure when driving in bad wx knowing that I have KATVWX radar especially during possible tornados. Tks to all those at KATV WEATHER for makings this possible. I rate you a 5 ⭐️

Perfection and complete professionalism !
The KATV Weather app is always on my primary page of apps. I use it almost daily. It takes a lot for me to trust anything and I can say the team at KATV is the best. Watching the storm coverage tonight, (Sunday, March 6th) absolutely blew me away. The professionalism and knowledge is unsurpassed. Barry, Todd and James were awesome. I’ve watched all the other networks, as well as those out of state and there is NO comparison. Thank you KATV for your superior coverage of our states weather. You guys truly are life savers!!

Dec ‘17 update takes three step backwards
For an APP that’s used (especially) in cases of severe weather and warnings- look for one that is more streamlined and with more immediate access. Have used and depended on this app on both an iPad and iPhones for several years until this most recent update. The forecasts are reliable and as accurate as current science allows, however the presentation in this upgrade render it too fraught with inconvenience for the time spent to open and load. * For mobile use and cellular data, the additional video feed load is superfluous and should be an optional item. Arkansas is a rural state with peaks and valleys and is oftentimes spotty between towers even on the interstates. For commuters having to travel in less populated areas, checking the forecast right before going off-grid now requires forethought and cannot be left to the last minute. ** Even on fiber optic high speed it takes longer to load for home use— going to the website has been quicker. *** the cloud background behind the forecast renders white text illegible. NOTE: this has been fixed in more recent updates. **** too many advertisers per screen, I would pay for this APP if there were NO sponsors and it were streamlined.

Best radar available!
Love the new KATVWX app. The ability to show 1hr previous and 6hr future radar and a 24hr predicted radar is the absolute best functionality available and it’s FREE. The spoken announcements are great and easily configured. Had switched to the Fox News weather app when others made future radar a premium service but that’s only 2hr and at times not correct. I highly recommend the KATVWX App.

Ch 7 weather app
I like the format; it is user friendly. I like being able to view details for each day or just overall forecast. I know I look at it many times per day! Thanks for the weather updates, since we know in Arkansas it changes so quickly!!!!!!😁👍. Great job weather crew!!!

Old was better
Doesn’t always load or loads slowly. Weather reader always opens to “past”. I would like to see a little of past ( where storm came from) and then where it is going in the future. I also keep getting notifications or alerts but when I open app it doesn’t show me the notification. I definitely liked the old app better. Can’t afford to not have this app slow or not work in weather emergency but I don’t trust this version to work!!! I’ve deleted and reinstalled it several times but still not working like it should.

Waving arms
Chanel 7 would be berry good if you would stop your Chief Barry from doing all the arm waving finger pointing and all of his other moves he does we can see the weather map. And we know where we live we can see the weather moving in just little point standing aside will be gone. His arm waving finger pointing, fake rain or snow in studio is not necessary. Just tie him up and see if he can do the weather !!! Like all the other weather people do!! Please stop his crap!!!

Decent app BUT...
The intensely annoying problem with this app is that it makes you wait approximately 8 seconds looking at the splash/logo screen before it opens. The wait time goes down to 5 seconds if the app is already in memory. It is a relatively small app at 40mb, so the long wait times are by design. The irony is this “feature” exists in an area with more than its share of turbulent weather where every second counts. It has decent layout and content once you finally get to it. I deleted this app in favor of a more responsive solution.

I appreciate the easy access to hourly weather. This icy week was less stressful because of the app. I knew when to cover stairs (tarp)for protection so when the precipitation ended, tarp moved, my dogs had access to the yard.

I like the app for quick access to the weekly weather and radar when necessary but I have had problems lately with the map not loading and currently can’t even see what the forecast says because the writing is in white and the background is blue with white clouds.

Weather app
Your weather app is not very accurate. You are mostly wrong predicting when rain/ snow will begin and end. Your app forecast for temperatures does not match what is predicted on air. A ten day for cast is useless and always wrong. Your accuracy is fairly good 3 days out- beyond that you’re guessing.

Can’t read forecast after last update
I like this app because it is simple and easy to find the information I need. The latest update looks nice but the cloud background is the same color as most of the numbers and makes the forecast much harder or sometimes impossible to read.

Not quite right today
This morning the weather in Mountain View, AR is 43 degrees and rainy. Also, the weather in Pearl, MS is 43 degrees and rainy. AND the weather in Santa Monica, CA is 43 degrees and rainy. The weather maps change, but the weather info does not. This has happened a couple of times previously.

Not so great
App works as it should if weather is decent. If it’s storming when you would need the most it doesn’t work at all. At first I thought it was just my phone until I realized everything else on my phone works just fine during the inclement weather

App takes entirely too long to load. Most times my phone will time out and lock before the app even opens. I like that the weather is typically more accurate and I can get alerts pushed to my phone, but it is no help if the thing won’t even open and load for me to see where a storm is.

That was terrible
I download this app and highly hopes that I could monitor the sleet and snow in my area. This app was so terrible it wouldn’t load past the open screen. I needed it for weather updates and school closing in which it was completely useless. I immediately deleted it, it served so helpful purpose.
