This app gives the local detail I want. That said, it takes forever to load, which is inconvenient at best when we’re further out and knowing the weather, and seeing the radar is an actual safety issue. I often cannot even get it open at those times when we’re out camping for example. Since I’ve been typing I’ve had 4 alerts sound on my phone for a thunderstorm. If you want to be alerted to emergencies such as tornados you have to put up with knowing every drop of rain that falls. Make that six alerts. All in all, I keep removing it because it’s not as helpful as annoying. I can just get the same info elsewhere. Make that seven alerts in as many minutes.
Great for weather, but notifications getting annoying
Please stop with the non-news notifications! If I wanted twitter type updates throughout my day, I’d subscribe to your handle. I don’t mind being woken up or alerted to need-to-know items, like actual warnings and ‘heavy rain’ or ‘lightening in your area.’ ‘Warmer today - cooler tomorrow’ ‘autumn starts Saturday’ and ‘COLD Friday morning’ are not need-to-know news items...
This app has become absolutely terrible. The amount of advertisements that they push through at this point for seemingly zero increase in app performance or new features, is ridiculous. I constantly have to close the app and restart it to get the radar to work. And why am I not able to see the latest weather report from the tv program and instead get some stupid webcast?
Good app however notifications sounds that says announce isn’t announce it’s a NBC tone. That’s wrong and needs to have the proper sound of a voice that says all of the weather notifications. If you think that the NBC tone is a announce then you need to go back to school.
Unsure of what has happened since the update, but I’ve used this app since I worked for Verizon years and years ago. Since the update now I’m getting an error that the app isn’t available in my current location. I’ll go back to 4/5 stars once that gets fixed. It’s usually been amazing, even out of state in Vegas.
Ever since the update I get an error stating this application isn’t available for your area. I have had this app for 3 years. It also takes forever to load now. If I can open it without errors I’m inundated with ads!
