Wave 3 family 🤗
I love how y’all became a family as I’ve watch through out the years. I so very much appreciate the laughter and the smiles I’ve had from watching and am great full for the hard work all of you put in to keep us safe from storms “between you and me the storms and the lightnin bugs are my favorite 😉” lol the little people around us are great full for the heads up where storms are concerned 😆 truly it helps us plan the day.. 🤣 also little Ryder Jaxon asked me to PLEASE ask OUR WEATHER MAN 🤣🤣😂 to wait on any more storms UNTIL the fireworks are over. His exact words. Well I sure wasn’t tryin to write y’all a book. 😃so thank you for being here and thank you for everything. Your our kinda people and we love y’all 🤗🤗🤗 sincerely ,little Ryder Jaxon and Patsy Cron Bedford “again thanks for the thunder and lightnin” ☺️

Terrible changes
The updates that have been made are terrible. After figuring out how to get through it, the scrolling and smaller views were not up to the former app's par. It’s all advertisements. I'd rather pay for an app that I depend on and check very frequently than have to search through ads for miniature versions of what was previously a 5 star app. I'll be looking for a new weather app. WAVE has been my go-to station for everything for as long as I can remember...I’m 72! Looks like WLKY will get a chance. Please go back to the former format.

Gives me the weather when I need it
This app keeps getting better. The improvements they have made it my go to app for weather. The weather alerts are right on time for my area. The thing that I think I like the most is that it’s updated by WAVE’s meteorologists. So instead of waiting for updates from someplace far away from Louisville the info is updated up to the minute by weather experts who live in the area.

Best free weather app!
This is a great app! Keep up the great work! It’s the best free weather app out there. I’ve compared many; this one is the most accurate for Louisville that I’ve found, and you can get weather for other places too. Most (if not all) of the other free weather apps I’ve used, have either completely eliminated future radar, or drastically reduced the time it shows. Not this one! It even has 24 hour future radar (far better than anyone else), as well as past, past and future, and a shorter-term future. Note: it’s currently defaulting to 24 hour future, but you can change that using the three dots on the right. Thanks for sharing this with our community!

App and videos
Okay so here is my issues!! My app will show differently than my Husband and My Daughters, forecasting and wording different..Secondly when I watch the videos that are posted with the forecast and it will cut off to to a ad and when it comes back on it switches to the next video..Kinda aggravating that I can’t watch n see what the forecast is going to be especially when severe weather is involved!! Yes my App is up to date!! I have checked multiple times and there is update available!!

Not Once
The wave3 weather app and radar are so convenient. Not once have I went to the wave3 weather app, and experienced a delay, server problem, and nothing less than just quick information. I would highly recommend it, especially when it gets a little dicey.

Great Team !!!
They are comprehensive, thorough, and most importantly, completely understandable !!! This gives us a huge advantage over the unknowns we would otherwise face with severe storms or weather disturbances of any sort !!! We enjoy the WAVE of emotion we get when you can finally give us the “ALL CLEAR “ !!!

Temperature wrong/Too many alerts
It is currently 33 degrees and the app is saying it's 0 degrees. I checked and my location is correct. It's been like this for several days. I also want alerts for severe snow/wind only but because I have those checked I get alerted basically every other hour. Annoying. I don't need alerted every time they are talking about snow or wind throughout the day. I just want alerts for the serious stuff. The app needs some updates. I most likely will delete the app soon.

Overloaded with ads.
Don't let the screen caps in the app store fool you. They conveniently omit any ads. Believe me. This app is completely overloaded with way too many ads. So much so, they turn an otherwise functional app into a convoluted, distracting, and awkward experience. You even have to wait for a 15 second commercial to watch a video. That's a long time when you're looking for immediate updates about warnings and emergencies. I'd gladly pay to remove all ads. And change the startup graphic.

The weather
Wave is the most accurate weather station for local weather in our area. They take more into account than the national weather service. Just my opinion, but overtime it has worked out that way.

Thank you
I always tune into WAVE 3 for all weather needs. Even though we live in Anderson county and are not technically in your viewing area, we always tune in for all our news and weather needs. Thank you for always keeping us informed and feel free to mention Anderson county from time to time.🤗

Daily Usage
Thanks for the important updates. Daily usage allowed me to depart my sister’s home last Saturday in Va just in time to drive through the mountains. The app feature of traffic info was also a great help at the right time. The weather team efforts are greatly appreciated. T Sanders

Not that good
The app is full of commercials. Starting up time is not good. The app needs a major revamp. I realize you have to have money, but do you have to have that many commercials? Also, there are very few updates during the day. I will try it again in six months.

Accurate forecast, slow radar
I like the convenience of having a way to see the forecast and usually very accurate. Only negative is that the radar is always 10 minutes behind real time.

Wave 3 weather app
I only gave 3 stars because of the inability to increase the size of the text of the forecast. The other applications are great. I especially like the ability to keep track of the weather in other cities where family and friends live.

I just updated the app, and I find the radar some what confusing, because no matter how much I miss with what I want to be shown it doesn’t get any less cluttered, and it makes it hard to tell what’s what, and where it is moving, so if it’s not to much trouble, could you please Chang the radar back to the way it was.

Excellent App For Weather
I love this because it's a WEATHER app. I have uninstalled the Weather Channel because I was tired of the non-weather notifications and pandemic news. I just want the weather. And Kevin called it!

Upgrade stinks
You took an adequate app and made the radar view almost impossible to view. The warnings overwhelm the actual weather. I can’t see the storm because the warnings are so strong. Then when I change the settings it changes them back. Every time I open the app I have to reset it. The last version was superior to this one.

Used this app for years. Latest update does have an issue, I have alerts set up so only severe weather, specifically tornadoes, are supposed to get through. Lately all weather alerts get through. I only allowed tornadoes for safety reasons, but I’m about to shut off alerts for the app altogether.

Radar overlays are too much
The app is generally very good, however in trying to enhance it, the radar feature has become so cluttered with uncontrollable overlays you can really see the precipitation and approaching storms. And you can’t effectively turn them off And the iPad version doesn’t work in Ios17

Not good
Everyone I load I have to look at a pic of Kevin and a pic promoting papa johns. No matter if I close it for even a second it starts all over. I get it... Kevin is a meteorologist and he called it.. uhhhh And yeah... I know there’s pizza made by papa johns.. And the obvious.... The radar is so slow to load. I could build my own dopler just waiting for it to load. I use My radar pro now. Extremely fast and accurate!

Don't tell me you'll tell me
I can't figure out how to change this WAVE 3 setting. When there's a weather update, I just want to hear the update. Instead I hear, "There's a weather update from Wave 3." Then I need to open the app to hear/see what the update is. I just want to hear the update. Not a notification that there has been an update.

Weather App Review
This is my go-to app for weather for central Kentucky. My only complaint would be sometimes 8-10 hours can pass without an update on the Daily section. But overall, I get a good snapshot of the next few days with these reports. Songscribe

Just awful poor
There has to be some kind of good update for this app. This app has become extremely slow and this is a app issue and not a user issue. Nothing opens like it supposed to, the home screen takes forever to actually get to the weather. But you guys won’t fix anything that needs to be fixed. WDRB weather app is not this bad.

App not opening on Ipad
App not opening on Ipad 6th gen, IOS 17.0.3 (updated 10/4) and previous version, hasn’t worked for one to two weeks. Have the app on IPhone 14 also updated to IOS 17.0.3. Haven’t had any issues, maybe pertains to IPadOS. Tried deleting and reinstalling app twice with no luck.

Latest release is extremely slow
I used to think this app was one of the best for layout and performance. Since the latest release, everything is much slower. The home page with current conditions used to open in a couple of seconds. Now it takes 30 seconds or more. In addition some of the ad come up and the current conditions don’t load.

Slowest app
It’s a nightmare only to open the app and have to wait like 15-30 seconds for it to open, then if you close it and open it again immediately, it starts all over again. There are other weather apps that run so quickly compared to this. Too many adds. Home screen is always the same. I don’t like it.

To many advertisements and most of the time it just won’t work
The format of this app looks great! The problem is it hardly ever works right. Until they fix it don’t waste your time. I had it downloaded for less than 2 days and only got it to work right once. Good luck.

Not great, but OK
I find that the app tends to lag other weather sources on forecasting. I also think that seeing Kevin Harned’s face first thing is unappealing. More so than other meteorologists, he seems to get excited about weather, more so than necessary. It may be the most important thing to him but rarely to the general population.
