Can you please go back to the last version of this app? Even if you have to put the overly long ad on the front screen like you have it now. The accuracy and functionality was so much better before. Now it will be raining where I am and it won’t show on the map. Or there will be lightning images, with no rain, and it will actually be raining. Still not sure what the purpose is of the Home Screen and you have to click into the map in order to be able to use it. A Home Screen should have other information on it if it is there vs just being a landing pad and forcing the user to click again just to get to the map. I have bragged about this app to so many people, prior to the update, but am now searching for another weather app.
Since the most recent upgrade I don’t use this app as much as I used to. Not as user-friendly/ appealing as before. First of all the use of red as main color is jarring… and since that is usually used as a warning or emergency color it is distracting. And for some reason the radar is also bothersome as opening screen. So much better when the first thing I saw was the daily snapshot for local weather…. Which is what most people want to see right away.
I like the previous Home Screen so much more than this update. Everything I needed was right there and I didn’t have to scroll to find anything. Can you at least switch the Home Screen back? Oh and all of the in your face advertisements are a ‘nice’ touch. 👎
The upgrade is bad……really bad. The only option on the map is future track. Before you could use past, past/future or future. Now it’s only future for some reason. Poor choice to upgrade/change the app News 8. Planning on deleting and loading a different weather app.
Since the update the radar is so glitchy that it’s basically unusable during storms - when you need it most. I don’t mind the rest of the update though. I like seeing the 14 day outlook and other weather maps.
Got this app when I lived in Monmouth. Now live in Peoria but it always goes off before Chuck Collins and was the only one going off during a tornado watch in Chillicothe, IL! I’m keeping it! Brett Stahl
The app is okay but really just a vehicle to serve up ads. Makes using the app distracting and I couldn’t wait to get it deleted from my phone. Moderately designed. Looks like it is some sort of cookie cutter app designed by same company that did the KWQC weather app. “Trailer Trash” radar map offers little functionality.
This app will not up load to the latest iOS on iPhone. This app uploaded fine for iPad with the last test iOS. I would love to have this on my phone. The low rating is due to the up loading issue. FIX ASAP!
While the app functionality is marginal, the content is abysmal. It is exceedingly rare to see any semblance of accuracy in any forecast. Want to know the weather? Stick your head out the window. This app is ostensibly worthless.
It would be great if this didn't need a wifi connection to work. We have horrible internet service at home, especially when it rains, so the app hardly ever opens during a storm when it is most useful. Other than that, the app is great.
