I like this app but the newly released version has the radar map moving too fast to get any real data except what you can infer from a glance (which makes it fairly useless.) The typeface is far too small (4 pt. typeface and less) when viewed on my iPhone X. The app is very cluttered and the typeface needs to be larger all around. I’ve switched to WeatherBug where the radar is easily readable, has a perfect pace and is ultimately helpful in planning your day around the rain. There is no HELP menu to report an issue within the app, but you’re in luck if you want to report “abuse”. What?
This is my go-to weather app. It has a good interface, is easy to use, and is pretty accurate. Two changes I would like to see: The ability to alphabetize my locations and A weather update each morning. I always check before bedtime and again in AM. They are always the same even though there is a change that occurs at night. Seems like the app only updates once every 24 hours Thank you for this good app
Great app, but doesn’t switch orientation properly on iPad
Thanks KTVU for the only app that has radar images! During winter it is the best. My only complaint is that when I open the app in landscape mode the app stays in portrait mode. I have to rotate the iPad and then sometimes it doesn’t rotate.
Well I feel this new version looks great but the app is barely use able. I keep receiving an error message “Failed to connect. Please check that airplane mode is off or that Wifi is connected.” The app loads extremely slowly and I can't receive most hourly updates.
I thought that I had finally found a weather app which would supply accurate forecast and current condition temperatures. But, that has not been the case. There have been discrepancies of as much as 20 degrees between the forecast temperature and the actual temperature. Why the hell does it seem to be so difficult to build an accurate weather application for phones?
Tried it. Failed. Disappointed. Gives same info as the apple weather app but offers radar and video (ostensibly from weather report on ch 2). It's cloudy and the actual nexrad radar site shows activity all over the Bay Area, but this app's radar page showed nothing. Then I tried the video option and when I clicked on it to play the news clip it froze my iPhone. Tried it several times, froze it every time. I did let the app know where I am, but refused to let it "always know where I am even when the app isn't running," and perhaps that's the rub? But if that's the case, who needs it.
You wanna check the weather for weekend? Forgot it. They don't update video forecast for Saturday or Sunday. Whatever they predict on Thursday that's it. No update if condition change. Their Weekend TV forecast is not the same you watch here.
This is now my favorite weather app. I would say a more reliable and detailed local weather forecast. By the way, you can add different locations. I wish people would explore the app before posting a bad review.
Why is this app only giving the weather report for San Francisco? Not everybody in the "Bay Area" live in SF. We are 60 miles north and our city is mentioned every day on the KTVU news. So why doesn't this app give all the locations we see on the TV? Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but this app seems simple enough.
I spend a lot of time between the SF Bay Area and Fort Bragg, CA. This app stinks. When I check on Fort Bragg current temperature it says 100 degrees and the forecast high for today is 65 degrees. I'll continue to look for a weather app that works.
