The app has some flaws!
This app is great when you need to see live streaming, unless of course you accidentally touch the screen and it goes right to a commercial; while they are giving live severe weather updates including tornado or high wind warnings. It is aggravating to have a commercial pop up when you are trying to see if your going to be getting potential damage or wiped off the map where you are. We all just love commercials; but fix the glitch that makes them pop up during live updates. Also you can’t delete tagged locations.

It wasn’t broken until it was fixed
CHANNEL 6 app developers PLEASE HEAR OUR CRIES: THE NEW RADAR IS VERY HARD TO NAVIGATE! The old app was my go to. Easy to read, easy to see the roads/cities. This app update is AWFUL. Looks “fancy” but is useless in a pinch. My son is the only one who hasn’t updated this app and I have forbidden him too because if I am in a closet trying to figure out if we are in the direct path of a tornado, I DONT NEED TO SSE THE LAST 30 MINUTES OF RADAR. I want to see my location RIGHT NOW. (And be able to see the roads, etc...can’t see them any more with the yellow and red shading that completely blocks them out.) ALSO, every time I touch the screen a pin drops with the location I tapped. & the only way I can delete the pin, that I didn’t want in the first place, is to go to the menu & put the new location in the trash can. Really, we don’t need fancy. We just need it to work which is why it was my go to in the past. PLEASE FIX!!!!! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!!!

“Updated” app is awful!
The old app was so much easier to navigate. Everything was easily accessible. Not on this one going from page to page or scrolling up and down. The alert system is absurd. Alerts should be for significant severe weather watches or warnings NOT it’s going to rain in 30 minutes or the wind is blowing. My only option is to turn alerts off or on. Since I can’t select select what alerts I want that leaves me to just turn alerts off. If I turn them off I have no use for this app at all. Not at all user friendly anymore and basically worthless. Sending out numerous ridiculous “alerts” is also unsafe by causing people to ignore them at some point due to frequency of alerts. Will delete app and rely on NOAA and Dark Sky.

This was previously my go-to wx app
I previously used this app exclusively. No more. It was easy to navigate, simple, and seemed to give me the important information quickly. I watch the weather very consistently, and this used to be great. Now, I get so frustrated with it that I have begun using competing television station weather apps instead. I suspect that this app, or at least this update, was designed by someone who never needs immediate weather information in a concise, reliable format. I really like and trust most information that comes from this television station, but this weather app stinks!

Horribly disappointing
Part of the greatness and draw of this app has always been that all information was quickly and easily accessible. There was one main screen with all options within a few short millimeters and centimeters of each other. Now, you have to hunt and search around to find information that used to be found at a quick glance. Disappointed that channel 6 decided to sacrifice usability and user-friendliness for fancy and over-the-top. When needing to know weather information, the LAST thing anyone needs is to have to waste time scrolling around and searching through a menu to find what they need. App will no longer be on my phone.

Change it back!
The new weather app is horrible. It’s confusing and makes no sense. I don’t understand the daily forecast, and why they changed it to the confusing mess it is now. They show the temperature but no heat index on the front page. You have to tap the front page and it takes you to another page which shows you all the info you used to get just by opening the app, and the temperature is 4 or 5 degrees different than other apps. I used to use the channel 6 weather app exclusively but not anymore.

Very Informational, a must have
This app is extremely informational. The dislike ratio is not understood. It is very easy to navigate and has an abundance of options. The radar has customizable options that are valuable and not unnecessary. It has a 24 hour radar option which I adore. You can set up to 16 locations in the Alerts tab and customize the alerts you receive. There are 60+ alerts available that you can switch on or off. It has anything from the extremely important tornado alert to heat advisory or thick fog or freeze advisory. The Weather tab has a complete weekly forecast with an abundance of information below each day. I love this must have app to keep me up to speed on the weather or potentially dangerous storms!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

It was great before the update
I’ve used this app for years and have had no problems until the most recent update. The entire format changed making it difficult to navigate and the new weather map in itself is confusing. It’s hard to tell what colors mean what anymore and instead of being able to look at a legend to find out (like you could before), you have to click on an area within the watch/warning/advisory. So far these are the only problems I’ve found but they make it very frustrating to use.

Notifications on crack
I almost didn’t know that we have a heat advisory in effect and would have completely missed it if this app hadn’t sent me FOUR FREAKING NOTIFICATIONS IN A ROW. I don’t really NEED three and four notifications for every weather event. Edited: The problem with excessive notifications is much improved. The radar function is pretty lame, but I rarely open the app, anyway, because it is so ridiculously saturated with ads that it’s hard to find the actual features.

Can’t delete locations
I love this app, but there is a bug in it when you try and delete locations. When I travel I will add a location to watch weather when I am there. When I am no longer there I want to delete it. I can’t do it! I have to delete the app and then bring it back from the cloud and then it takes out all locations.

Horrible!
This new app is terrible. The radar is hard to read and follow. Please go back to the old radar at least. Here we are entering into tornado/severe weather season and I don’t find your app helpful anymore at all. Constantly getting rain in your area notifications when it’s not in our area. My entire family feels the same about the app. Such a horrible decision and not user friendly at all. Please do an update to correct this issue. When we had all the bad weather and rain the last Tuesday in April my app wasn’t functioning properly at all and I had no idea what was going on.

Warnings take too long to show up
I’ll get an alert from the Weather Channel app that there’s a tornado warning, then a few minutes- as many as five minutes- later, the same tornado warning will show up on this app and then I’ll get an alert for it. That’s unacceptable. I love KOTV for my weather coverage, but this app just isn’t good enough in the way that matters the most. Please, please fix it. I don’t have any other issues with the app. Everything else works great.

“Updated” App is Awful
The News on 6 has been my go to weather app for years...my only complaint was I felt you could add too few locations. The new app is terrible....talk about finding a solution to a problem that doesn’t exist! You can’t see the extended forecast on one screen anymore. The radar is terrible...I have no idea where they source it from. It’s useless and inaccurate. I’m staring out at sunny skies right now but per the new improved app it shows rain in Tulsa right now. 😂 I’m off to delete this and check out Channel 8.

Why fix something that isn’t broken?
The newest version has made it so that everything is so hard to access unless you spend a lot of time on it learning where everything is. It wasn’t broken before, and any inaccuracies could’ve been fixed without the redesign. Overall, I am disappointed with the decision to remodel the app, and hope that they revert it ASAP.

Used to love it
This used to be my favorite weather app because it was simple, easy to see everything, and had a radar. Since mine updated yesterday I have felt like it is hard to see what you need to know, especially at a glance (high and low temps for day and week) and the radar is extremely inaccurate. It was pouring yesterday and when I clicked on the radar it did not show anything there. I understand them wanting to update the look, but there was no need to mess with the functionality!

Miss the other app
This new version takes longer to navigate through the weather. I miss the week in view with the highs and lows in one view. Weatherbug has been my go to app ever since this update so I can see the 10 day forecast in one view and not have to scroll down a long page. I do like the radar view, option to still watch live, and school closings link.

Great app
I saw a lot of reviews on how it’s difficult to get to the weather radar and I can’t seem to figure out why those reviews were posted. I downloaded the app clicked on the menu bar and the radar was one click away from there. You zoom into the area which you want to see and play the clip.

Can’t see time
Whenever we’re watching the live radar I can’t see the time as it passes. I only see the date and then you can see the beginning of the time with dad’s but I can’t tell what time it is as it’s going through the live radar.

NEW WEATHER APP 👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼
I agree with the previous review! The new updated version is useless! The radar rarely functions properly and NOTHING is at your fingertips as it once was. I know at least 12 people using the Channel 6 weather app and not one is happy with it. The old version was great! Why mess with a good thing? I have been a diehard fan of Channel 6 forever but sadly have been forced to delete the 6 app and download a local competitor. When weather is bad we need a team and an app we can rely upon.

Use to be my favorite Weather App
I loved this app until it updated a few days ago! Not happy!!!!! I travel and I’m in a middle of a tornado WARNING and I got NO alert!!! Because it had updated and took away all of my settings! Thanks for the awful update... you took a great app that was wonderful and made it awful and so not user friendly.. And to think I was just telling family last week how wonderful this app is... for years it has kept me safe traveling. Not today it failed Very disappointed.

Why did you fix what wasn’t broken?
I am echoing all of the recent reviews...why did you change the easy to read format to this immensely convoluted app? The old format was perfect, so much so that I had introduced friends and family to it to track the weather. We have ALL deleted the app since the update, it’s now completely useless. Please please please listen to the people taking time to leave reviews here and go back to the beautiful simplicity that was your prior design!

This version is awful
The old version was great. This version is awful! The radar rarely works as it should, and when it does, most often, it’s only showing a circular image. My son lives in OKC, and a lot of our storms come from there, but this radar very rarely now allows me to see the weather in the OKC area even though I have it pin marked. Like others, I now find myself using other sources for my weather, when used to be my only source. Very disappointing.

Why?
Why update a perfectly good app? To make it better? Not this app. This app was my firs line of defense against OK weather living in the country. Now, with the new updates, all the great features, as seeing in the radar where severe weather is or choosing which alerts are important to me, are gone. With this update we went from an advanced app that I shared with others to a horribly basic app that I just may end up deleting. Just in time for Oklahoma tornado season. Why?

Weather and war are predictable only by the most available intelligence, which changes in unpredictable ways. Oklahoma forecasters are the best in the nation. The national “Weather CIA” resides in Norman, Oklahoma. This app has never let me down as a tool for planning my day. Thank you Channel 6.

Update is worthless!
Whoever designed the update should be fired if not drug out in the street. The previous version worked great and gave you all the info you needed quickly. The radar worked awesome. Now you can see a 7 day forecast without scrolling through a bunch of crap and the radar omg is it useless. Pathetic updated and will be deleted when I find a replacement. Travis don’t stand for this crap!! Get it fixed!

New update is terrible!
This app is no longer user friendly at all. My wife and I used this app daily. It was much more useful to have a seven day forecast in a single glance. All of the scrolling is ridiculous. I reward you 0 points for all of the other unnecessary video graphics in the background. All this does is make the important information harder to read. You really shot yourselves in the foot with this new fancy upgrade.

Update is awful!
The old app was so much better, I hate that you can’t see the 7 day forecast on one screen. With the 7 day being all black and white it’s harder to see and know what each day is and why is it broken down by day and night?!? The radar takes so much longer to load because it goes back 1.5 hrs in time. It’s nice to know that but is it necessary...can there be a setting to change that.

Copy Cat App
I’m deleting this “new version” of the app because I’ve had this app since 2014, it’s called AT’s Weather App....except his has more notification options available in regards to weather events....a LOT more. Why should I now keep an app from a local station when they are copying the work from an app another meteorologist has worked hard to develop AND basically self funded for the last 5 years?!

Update ruins app
The new look of the app makes it nearly unusable. With the new layout and the ad at the bottom, the user has about one half-inch to read the forecast and scroll ahead to read future forecasts. Too much wasted space in the new design! And stop tracking me, the privacy disclosures are disturbing. Getting a new app for local weather!

Hourly forecast is never correct
Hourly forecast is never updated. I understand the weather changes here frequently. But the app doesn’t change. It’s showing a 30% chance of raining right now. Guess what it’s doing right now... it showed a 60% a few days ago and never rained once. It’s like they set it at the beginning of the week and never update through the week. Frustrating!

Impressively bad
By default, any time you open a notification from this app, it starts reading the weather alert in a synthesized voice. It’s not really any better than the native weather app, it’s not super reliable in terms of timely notifications, the ads are ridiculous, and there are so many design choices that can only be described as odd. Not worth your time.

Disappointed
I have used the old app since it was available. Loved it! I am not a fan of the new updated version. The old version was easier to navigate, and quite honestly, I got pretty good at determining the potential hooks on radar for tornadoes. The new radar is just not as user friendly. I do love our Channel 6 weather guys though. Thank you for keeping us always informed.

Whoever is your developer took a great app and totally messed it up!! Hard to find local radar, hard to follow, hard to do anything. I have moved my go to - any other station is now better! So sad- I loved your previous app. ZERO stars compared to previous. Ok, it won’t even send unless I tap a star- had to tap 1 just to get it to send—fake rating!!!

Fancy doesn’t equal better
App got fancy. That doesn’t mean it got better! Channel six use to have an awsome online radar years ago. Not any more. It’s the same watered down radar that everyone else has. How is it that the app radar and the radar on the tv looks different? How is it that I’m getting rained and hailed on but the app radar doesn’t show anything where I’m at???

What the heck were you thinking with the latest update? It’s awful! I’m pretty sure I’m not alone by saying nobody wants to have to take time to scroll to each individual day to see the forecast.

What were they thinking
Compared to previous app which was Ok (not great, but Ok), this app is subpar. It has too much of what I don’t need and requires too much fiddlin’ to get the basic information needed. The video forecast would be great if they were more current. At 8pm CST the most recent forecast is from the early AM. Fortunately, there are other local alternatives to this station.
