It’s handy to have an app that’s contains my local weather station’s news and forecast. Forecast is fairly accurate, including the hour by hour forecast. The annoying thing is the radar glitches out after reopening the app, forcing you to force close the app and reopen it. Other than that, a it’s a decent weather app overall.
Not only is the radar always wrong. But the hourly is always wrong too. It can be gusting 30 miles an hour winds and the Apple show 6 miles an hour. It’s very unreliable and sad. And I don’t know who is in charge of all the information input or radars but I thought this one would be the best one for me but it’s definitely not accurate. When I need it the most when it’s storming or when it’s going to be storming and it calls for horrific weather and then nothing happens or vice versa. I’m just done with everybody in the Meteorologist that are more interested in spreading fear and panic instead of being accurate and informative.
For several months now the radar has not been showing the precipitation or cloud coverage. This makes for a lot of frustration when needing to see where the rain is falling and when it will pass. Very glitchy. Yes, all of my devices and systems are up to date, and it happens on multiple devices. This used to be the app I always recommended.
I received 1 notification after the update today. The video always has the speaker off and you have to click it on for the forecast. My friend and I haven’t received Notifications for months and all the settings are on. Still no notifications from the app!!!! It worked fine for several years and everything is on to get notifications, but a big ZERO! Where’s your tech support?
1. Kansas City was formed in Missouri before Kansas was even a state. 2. The name of the app has "Kansas City Weather" in the title. So If you live in Utah this app may let you down a bit. Try looking for an app from one of your local news stations. That being said the app is not so good. Too buggy. It opens but it takes around 30 seconds for the screens to show up if they show up at all. Works great the first couple of times but then fizzled out.
I used to like this app. Recently they have a list of news items. You click on it and instead of the story, you get taken to an ad. This is wrong. It’s annoying enough to have the ads stuck in the middle, but to not even take you to the news item... ridiculous- I’m going to use KSHB41 for my local news app. Fix this please.
App stinks. For a long time I tolerated it because I like Karli Ritter but the app has always been difficult to navigate once you make your selection about which style of weather report you want to view. Tried to watch Karlis video segment this morning and it was so badly edited and choppy I finally gave up. I am trying another station's app.
The content merits five stars, especially Joe Lauria's blog and the almanac. However, from a technical perspective it's definitely a one-star product (at least on an iOS 9+ platform). When opening the blog it autoscrolls to the very end; to get to the beginning you have to scroll back through all the trash links and ads to the blogs, and it usually crashes before I can get to the beginning.
This app is useless for the most part. The weather forecast is constantly changing up until current time which defeats the purpose of a weather “forecast”. I understand weather is hard to predict, but precipitation percentages and wind speed/direction are all over the place on any given day.
It takes forever to get the app to show you its screen, if it shows at all. Often goes blank and then doesn’t come up at all. After watching the video of the weather cast, you can’t get back to the main screen. Don’t waste your time. So very unreliable........especially living in Tornado Alley.
Hate the new update except for the new radar. It’s so hard to see and they messed the colors for warnings and things up. Keep the radar tracking, but change everything else back to the way it was before please.
When u got this app I'm like one lagging two it has what the other weather app doesn't this app said I was getting hit by intense it show me get prepared it showed me what's actually going on I love this app ;)
This latest update causes the app to lock up my IPad, I have to reboot to get it to work, a real pain. It also does the same lock up on android. So I use accuweather, at least it works. Never had a problem until this new update. Fix please, or find someone who can.
