The best forecast but no so much to say about the app. Cluttered up with advertisements making this app very hard to navigate. The accuracy of the meteorological team is by far the only reason to load this app. I’ve worked in the green industry scheduling a team of outdoor workers for as long as I’ve lived in Indiana and followed AB and CL fir the most accurate forecast for years before they were on the same team. I’m most likely to continue with to the old way and catch the forecast on the tv.
I’m a delivery driver in Bloomington. I used this app for years. It was pretty accurate, I’m assuming because it used the radar at the small airport here, and didn’t have many ads or random banners to accidentally click on. I need to know what the weather is, I need the forecast, and I need it to be faster and less frustrating then just using google. I’m not sure when the change to this less accurate more ad intensive-(more frustrating) Version happened. But in my opinion if the experience isn’t better and easier to use then just googling the weather, then it’s not worth it to me personally. Skip this ad heavy app. It’s frustrating to deal with, way less accurate then it was a few years ago, and google is now the better option.
Like other reviewers, very disappointed in update. I used the traffic section to get around safely and checked the gas prices every time I needed to fill up. Looking for new app or apps to find this again. Bad call, channel 13. After further fiddling with the app, I found the traffic and gas buddy shunted into the Blog. I still think it deserved its own prominent icon on the menu but take back some of my mean words. I'd still go back to the previous version if it was available.
I was majorly disappointed when the WTHR app updated to this new version because the traffic map has been eliminated! Now I have had to add a separate app to my phone to see traffic issues. I liked being able to get my weather and traffic from this one app. The traffic option made this a 5 star app for me, but not anymore!
I had the other App for years it served me globally and was a lifeline through many dangerous storms globally And then one day you change it And I can no longer use it because I have an I phone that had as 12.5 operating system.. I’m just disappointed It’s like losing a trusted friend.... Jeanie Foster
This app used to be good a few years ago, but they keep updating it with new features and cosmetic updates that bring nothing to the table. They keep changing how the interactive radar looks, they keep changing the main menu style. Channel 13 in general has been on the decline. But it gives you basic information which I guess is all you need. It just shows they aren’t making as much money as they used to lol.
Prior to the last two updates, the app would appear in landscape mode, now it is only in portrait mode. Please update so that those of us who have our iPads on a keyboard don't have to turn it 90 degrees to use the app. This is an inconvenience.
The only thing I would change is the radar map, so that it can be displayed in landscape instead of portrait. Other than that- this is a great set of tools that I use regularly to plan travel and keep my family safe.
This app does not update frequently enough to be helpful during significant weather conditions. Looking at a radar is not useful when there is no one to interpret the data. There is nothing like seeing a funnel cloud going to the app for info just to watch a Forum commercial. I thought they would eventually realize this app is terrible and get a new one, but it's been years, and they ask us to rely on the app more than their reports.
The app gets me the information I need; however, in a recent update they changed the way the 7-day forecast is displayed, and it’s not easy to interpret. Three columns which show (I assume) precipitation chance percentage, high temp, and low temp. But the columns have no headers, so you have to guess what they are.
I use this app easily every day, but lately I have been getting bombarded with ads that do not allow me to close them out and I have to force quit the app and restart it. I love the WTHR Weather weather team and want to continue to use this app, please fix the ad issues! Update: I no longer receive ads, but the app itself crashes every time I use it. Specifically when I try to read the video forecast.
I love this app and use it daily. Never had any issues until lately. For some reason, it will not tell me the current weather for my region. Very disappointing. If it can’t be fixed soon, I’ll be looking for a different app that will and deleting this one.
My finger touched the star by ‘tap to rate’ while scrolling the reviews and I haven’t figured out how undue. I’ll keep looking, but until then... Update: downloaded the app, looked at it for a few minutes and adjusted from one star two three because one star didn’t seem fair.
I use this app daily, but the most recent update is not great. It’s not playing well with my iPad. The app will not rotate now into a landscape mode. I am also finding it not as easy to find what I am looking for.
I do not like this latest update. Supposed to be more up to date but looks like several steps backward. Very plain, and has less information than before such as wind speed. I’m looking for a different weather app now. So disappointed.
When I was looking at the app it said clear and it was snowing outside how more wrong can you get. Something needs to change this is crazy when you can’t even get the weather right. Everyone is better off to just look outside like I did while I was looking at the app to see what the weather is.
The radar never matches what is happening outside. Radar does not come close to The Weather Channel’s radar. Even while watching the live news weather report on WTHR, the radars don’t match. The app always says it’s raining more than what it really is. I’ll be going back to the weather channel.
Wthr weather app was my go to for several years. I have not updated the app in several months until recently. Now the app loads but with TONS of pop up ads. :( I just want to see the video forecast. Video never plays now. App is useless.
Used to be a really good app. Now the interactive radio is worthless. It showed NO precipitation ANYWHERE in the United States. That is one of the main reasons that you get a weather app. I don’t know what you did to make the intraday not work, but it is not worthy of any stars without the interactive radar.
