App Locks Up After Update
I enjoy the app, but after the most recent update, the app locks up on the launch screen. The only fix is to force close the app each time.

Great app. Wish the online instructions were a little better
I’ve learned to make this very useful. I love that I can select, for example, precipitation, clouds, and temperature from the menu (3 vertical dots) at the bottom right of the screen. Then with the menu still open I can go to overlays at the bottom and select storm track and lightning and have what I’ll call fans show on the radar view. Those fans are storms. Touch the vertex and the severity of the storm is displayed including the size of hail if appropriate. It’s incredible to have this in the palm of my hand on a free app.

Denver’s Best Weather App. Period
Do not waste your time with any other weather app. All others fall short! Apple weather is always 8 degrees off, or more. And rarely does it correctly predict snowfall. New to the Denver area? Wonder why your always let down by your weather app? How do these locals know? Experience helps a lot, but short of experience- this app is your best choice.

Good to Know
So far this looks like a “polarizing” app. You either love it or you hate it. As of today I am in the “almost love it” group. There is a lot of “good to know” information, but I would hate having the responsibility of keeping it all updated and perfectly accurate all of the time. Can anyone really do that knowing that Mother Nature is the puppet master on the other side of the curtain playing games with you? Be happy. This is an excellent app.

Terrible
So many times it’s literally raining on me and the app shows nothing on the radar. And if it was a 20% chance earlier that it might rain but is now pouring on me, maybe change it to 100%? Nope. Still 20% and still nothing on the radar. Why don’t they just see what weather channel is doing and report that. And they keep advertising it as the most accurate weather app. Jeez that’s terrifying. What else is fox news completely blind amd ignorant about?😂

Worst app ever
When I click on the articles tab it’s because I want to quickly read a summary of the weather before leaving for work. Instead of being able to read the article I get bombarded by repeated video ads that automatically open up and have to close the out before I can read. Doesn’t matter how accurate the forecast is if you can’t read it. So much for “performance” improvements.

This weather app is very inaccurate!
I have been using this app every day and it is never right with the future weather that is going to happen. I am deleting this app from my phone because I’m so mad. I had a real terrible hail storm come through and I had no warning whatsoever until the storm was at my house which was a little bit too late. Very disappointed!

Just mirrors the Weather Channel app
The hourly forecast changes, sometimes dramatically, every 5-10 minutes making planning impossible. The forecast itself just repeats the Weather Channel and frequently contradicts their on air forecast. For example, just today on air the snow prediction for Conifer CO was less than 2 inches of snow through Wednesday night. The app however says 6-12 inches for the same time period.

Great app...
I have been using this app for a couple of years now. The radar/s are excellent; the only thing missing is pollen counts and alerts!!

Latest update turned app to garbage
This app used to be good. Latest update brought with it very invasive advertising. Takes over the whole screen and you have to wait to close the ad. If that wasn’t bad enough you have to through two of them. I am uninstalling this garbage and finding new app that doesn’t prioritize advertising over functionality.

Updates are a step backwards
Every city is now shows the same temperature with same forecast, map looks like it is always midnight, and the radar is not accurate as the storm passes over you but the radar shows it is still on its way. Why is it so hard to find a decent weather app?

So so, radar timeline is faulty
As soon as the radar moves from past to future on the timeline, all radar activity in the future disappears. There can be huge storms right on top of us as the timeline sits at “present”’and as soon as it moves to future all is clear, which is not what happens to the weather.

Used daily until the Ads started
This was my go to weather app. I would check the weather every morning. But lately full screen ads pop up in a few seconds of opening. Looking for a new app to replace this one.

Video Adds Not Necessary
I used to love the Pinpoint app until they quit using the video forecast and now they have added video pop-up ads. No better way to drive people away from an app than to aggravate the end user with ads. It goes against common sense.

Decent for free
Not a great app. It has very few features, current conditions are often wrong. No videos load. It’s like a beta version of looking out your window. Love the actual weather forecast from these folks at fox31 and channel2 on tv, but the app is very poor. Better forecast and rather apps, for free, are abundant and more worthwhile

Ransomware!!!
Accidentally clicked one of the ads in the app and was immediately redirected to a browser page. Then an alert popped up on my screen saying my phone has been compromised and i need to pay to fix it or lose everything?!

Correct
I have 6 weather apps and 2 of you (this app and other news app) isn’t very correct about this Howard, CO ! It doesn’t get that cold ! It hits 70’s to 80’s degrees! Not 45-55!

The app notifies you every time there is a lightning strike! Are you kidding me?
What amazing information to know! Lol. Idiotic! I wanted the weather, not my phone to go off every 2 seconds in a storm. Sure turn notifications off, but that ruins the whole point of a weather app. No notifications of a tornado then! Just downright dumb.

Not very accurate
It's snowing so much right now and this app says it's tainting and won't snow until tonight. Already several inches on the ground. I understand forecasts being inaccurate, but at least update the current weather so it's correct.

Good when it works
When it works it’s great. I love it. But more than half the time the app won’t even open for me. It hangs up on the initial advertisement screen. HIGHLY annoying and I end up reverting to other apps. Considering deleting it l.

Pop ups in the middle of viewing
The amount of pop up ads you have suddenly placed in your app has made your app useless. Used to be my go to for weather but I don’t need to watch a 30 second commercial to get the weather.

No reliable.
Sometimes I think it’s reliable, but since the app was upgraded, whatever little reliability it has was shot out the window. It says there’s no rain near me right now, radar show a system in the mountains. However, it’s raining now and heavy winds.

Trash
This app used to be good, but they keep stripping features from it. Mainly the ability to watch the last aired weather video. Seems like support went on vacation and never came back.

Terrible update
The old app was great - very user friendly. Now, it's impossible to see the map because of the satellite image base. The swipe navigation for the radar/daily/hourly forecast does not work very well. All of my saved locations disappeared. And the advertising... Really? Did you need to sell us out with that? I switched to this app from Storm Shield, as their latest versions got messed with and became hard to use. Now I have to find another weather app.

Great weather app
This is by far the best weather app available. Current and long range forecast. Satellite map and current weather forecast video. Easy to use and full of information. Well written app.

Horrible Update!
If I could undo the latest update I would. Like others have also said it is absolutely horrible! You can't see the rain on the radar because it is green and so is the ground. Did you not look at it before you finished it? I loved the app until the latest update. I want the map view instead of a satellite view.

Terrible
You would think a news station would put more thought into its weather app. This is one of the worst apps I have ever seen and definitely the worst weather app. Judging by the quality of this app, it is either a template app the news station purchased or it was created by a software sweatshop. Shame on you Fox 31. Your audience deserves better.

Undo this update
Not only is this update a pain but if your nickname is taken it erases everything you wrote! Lost all my saved locations. Not all that user friendly. Like starting all over with a different app. The old one wasn't that broke so why mess up the entire thing? No longer my fav go to app for wx info.

My go to weather app
I have tried several free and paid weather apps and this is my go to after using it for about a year and a half. It has never given me any problems. I keep about 5 locations on it including ‘follow me.’ I just an hour ago let my daughter know there was a severe thunderstorm watch in her area. Set the alerts to get the level of notifications you want. I agree with another reviewer who said people seem to love it or hate it. It does everything I need it to do so I’m in the ‘love it’ camp
