This has been the most accurate forecast app I’ve used. The pop up ads were annoying but a quick swipe and they were gone. The new mandatory video ads however are a step too far. If I need forecast data RIGHT NOW I can’t, I have to sit through video ads. What If it were an emergency? I get the bill need to be paid, and showing still ads would be a fine compromise. But this... Sorry, Dan. I’m out. I’ll get my weather data elsewhere.
The current radar is not accurate compared to other weather apps or even the radar shown on the local TV channel. It’s like it’s off by a few hours or so. It could be pouring outside but the radar on this apps shows the rain or storms is miles/hours away.
Crashes and way too many notifications that don’t matter. Example - Gives notifications for counties in Oklahoma when they have a tornado warning. I don’t mind seeing that in the app because it’s our region, but don’t send notifications. Also get meaningless notifications like, “Will the storms stay in the forecast? Click to see!” Uninstalling.
When it actually matters and there is weather, the past and future cast stalls. I get it if it’s cellular but in WiFi? No excuse. Tired of all the good weather apps getting bought and nerfed and we are stuck with these lackluster ones.
Find another option!! Frequent notifications all of which are just unimportant teaser questions from Melissa and Dan. Ex: “Will this heat continue or does the weekend bring us a cool down? Click here to find out -Dan”. These pointless and very annoying notifications are always signed from either Melissa or Dan...they spam you several times a day! It’s unnecessary and rude. It’s literally made me not like them anymore. Weather related notifications should only be used for communicating important ACTUAL weather related news.
The app says it is for ipad, but most sections are optimized for iphone. Maps and forecast screens cover just a third of the screen. The content is rich though. Has everything that you will expect from a weather app, including a live stream (during severe weather only). There is also a possibility to chat with weathermen.
