The way the weather works
When I just had my regular weather app that comes in the iPhone I didn’t know there was a way better one out there. When I first downloaded the WGEM wether app I thought it was going to be the same as me other one but it turns out the it show the actual weather chances and what it will be like the next day it makes sure that you are aware of the temperature and humidity but also helps you when you are in need of safety thank you WGEM for keeping my family and me safe!

Good but missing tornado warnings on radar
What happened to the tornado warnings and watches on the radar? I rely on those red and yellow boxes on the radar. If they do not get added back I will be forced to use another weather app, and I don't want to do that’s why I’m not sure what the plan was to do it because I’m just trying not sure if you can do that but if I have a better plan is I would just do the other day or not because you can go ahead with that but you have a chance of it if you’re going out there with me I don’t know if that’s the best o way you can go I would think about doing something that you know to be in your way but I’m just a Ty or if it’s not a big thing and I would just do it I would be able and then I would have a little more flexibility to do it myself I just don’t know if it’s!

Storm tracking mobile app
Tried other weather apps doesn’t even come close to this one. Very accurate and I can actually count on this weather app to give me update information. Clear and understandable videos. I actually live in Colchester IL so I watch WGEM out of Quincy. I use This weather app to me update and events and the weather

Excellent ap
Very informative. Fast-loading and fairly complete. Does not tell rainfall amounts for previous 24 hour period, so I still need other aps. It would also be helpful if clouds were featured on the radar. Logged into the app radar today to find a Stupid video game pop-up blocking the screen momentarily. I was surprised and discusted by this addition. Please get rid of it!

Very Useful
I’ve had this app for years. It always worked perfectly and this latest update has made viewing severe storm potential even better. This is my go-to weather app above all others. Great job WGEM!!!

Weather Amazing

Home location off by 8-10 degrees
The area temps are spot on but it seems like my home location is always off. Uninstalled and reinstalled app to try and fix this issue but did not work. Can you please look into this? Thank you.

Best weather team at WGEM
Brian and Whitney were already awesome and now Logan is an excellent addition. He gives so much information in a clear and concise manner. Only weather to watch in the tri-states.

Just here to make them money
Such little effort put into this app. It’s just here to spam you with unskippable 30+ second video ads, and banner ads everywhere like it’s 1995. just to show you 8 seconds of sped up radar without even any narration. What a joke. It’s obvious this app is here to make money first, and inform ppl second.

My only complaint is when I get a severe weather alert or a tornado warning I have to watch an ad before knowing if I should run for cover or not. I feel in those circumstances, everyone’s safety is more important than a commercial.

Too many ads
The ads are longer than the videos. I can barely see long enough to figure what is going on and where it is happening

Very Clean
This weather app is clean and colorful. I really like the radar because it is smooth where as some others I had were choppy. It even looks good on the iPad. This has replaced TWC app.

Radar map
I do not like the updated version of the radar map. The radar is pixelated. You need to go back to the original radar map.

I like it!
Let's me use my home location on the map and not Quincy. I live at the southern edge of their coverage so that's a plus. I'll have to see how useful it is in the coming days.

Stick with NOAA or The Weather Channel
Feels very old. Maps run slow. Needs and lot of bug fixes. If you want to remember slow windows 98 and your not in a hurry. This is an app for you.

When seconds count…advertisement comes first
I have a weather radio, but I depend on apps such as this one also for weather alerts, and to view the radar. Today, just a day after the Baring Tornado, I received a weather notification from this app, it was an alert for approaching storms. I tapped the notification and it brought me right into the app’s latest notifications screen, but I had to watch an advertisement before I received the details of the approaching weather! How absurd! Lately it is taking a couple minutes for the radar to correctly load, the radar will flash numerous times, it will show the storm tracks, but not the actual boundaries of the cell. I came here to see if the app needed updated and found that the app is up to date. There needs to something done here. I’d be willing to pay a fee so I don’t have to watch an advertisement first, when I receive a weather notice. I have screen recorded the process of viewing the notification/advertisement and will send it and a copy of this review to WGEM.

This looks like something WGEM spent a lot of money on and it looks like its from 2007. And not iPhone 5 optimized. So I'll stick with weather.
