We’ve been using this app for years. I love how no matter where I travel, I can see what the weather is doing and plan for it. Several years ago, I was driving my parents home from Florida to Minnesota and was able to stay ahead of a severe storm coming behind us. This past winter I worked in Montana and was able to keep an eye on conditions driving through a mountain pass after work. At the same time, it was also nice to check conditions at home in MN.
Your radar is beyond inaccurate. Tonight driving home we hit a major storm. Pulled off on exit. Got on the app it shows absolutely nothing where I am. It was blowing my car sideways raining so hard could not see. Lightning was so dangerous hailing. Closed app went back in shows nothing again. Storm let’s up we leave the exit hit another storm in next town. Says just light rain it was no light rain. We finally get home. Look on app again to see if this storm was coming our way. It shows all red over my house at that second. It’s bone dry and calm here no storm at all but radar shows storm right over my house. How are we to rely on your app for weather when it was so inaccurate.
This was my go to app for the weather every where I went. I have used this app since the 1st apple iphone. But this past yr it has been horrible. Why in the world would you put 1st ALERT on every notification? And alert is for being aware of bad weather. Not the future forecast. Way too many notifications now also. It is like the boy who cried wolf too many times. And this is the nail in the coffin. When you have a thunderstorm warning or bad weather coming notify the counties it is affecting. Not the whole flippen state! If these things stay the same I will have to switch. Most ppl the have used your app are complaining about the same things. Please fix!
The radar is not even close to accurate. It will be pouring rain yet the radar doesn’t show anything in the radar. The hourly forecast shows it’s even raining but the radar will be empty. I’m tired of canceling plans based on this radar since it’s not accurate. I switched to WDAY storm tracker radar (Fargo), because it’s way more accurate. I also use the Weather Channel app and it will show radar much differently than VNL tracker. Dont waste your time with the inaccurate info on this app. You’ll end up canceling plans due to rain that isn’t actually in the forecast!
I get wanting to keep viewers informed but every time there’s bad weather they send at least 4 notifications every 5 minutes. I want to stay informed so I don’t want to turn off the notifications but they’re making my devices with the app installed unusable.
Every single time I go into the app, it resets my radar settings. I do not automatically want the storm warnings to pop up every time I look at the radar. It’s incredibly frustrating. You can’t see the radar behind it even if you mess with the settings. Please go back to the old app, or make the settings save-able.
I like the app layout and is easy to use. I like that it shows the radar for wherever you may be. My only real complaint is that you can’t see the radar once a warning or watch has been issued for your area. If the red or yellow boxes could be more see through that would be great.
I have used this app for years daily and in the past 6 mos it absolutely will not load. I have tried all the ‘fixes’ suggested and it just won’t load. I miss it, but now have started using another app because of it’s unreliability. I wish it was more consistent with loading.
Just when you think your weather app couldn’t get any worse, it does! Isn’t bad enough that you’ll forever be a DISTANT second fiddle to WDAY in pretty much anything news related in the valley? Why can’t you just be good at ONE thing. Oh well, maybe we’ll all get lucky and WDAY will take this over some day just like they’ve done with all of the sports you used to have. Cheers!
This is the worst laid out weather app I have seen. You cant see the print because its too small and it has white letters on a light blue background. Bring back the old version! I no longer will use it on my Ipad, thankfully I never updated my phone. Update: lost ild version with phone update. Switched to WDAY Stormtracker because you can actually read the forecast!!!
I have several weather apps on my phone. This WAS my favorite for years, but now I go to the other apps. The radar is horrible with the warning boxes overlay. It is difficult to determine what is rain, snow or ice precipitation, or the storm warning box.
Until your recent update (Dec 2022). The weather alerts automatically turn back on, you can barely see the radar behind them. I’ve looked through the settings trying to find a solution - nothing. And tech support is even worse.
I’ve been using VNL weather app for years n have loved it. But ever since they updated the app, I’ve been using it less n less, as it’s so distracting for me. I go on n often forget what I’m looking for, which is frustrating.
The ads all have to load before the radar or any forecast data. This is not 1995. I shouldn’t have to wait 5 minutes for the radar loop to load because we have prioritized an obscene number of ads to load first
Terrible app. The old version was much better. Every time I leave the app and come back to check the weather, the app is very glitchy. The radar twitches and scrolling seems to malfunction. Go back to the old version.
If you’re looking at the “daily” forecast, it shows what appears to be the high and low for the day and it is always way off. If you look at the “hourly”, the temps don’t at all correspond with the “daily” but they are more accurate.
