Customer Reviews

  • Inconsistent info provided

    by ttueric

    On the app itself, the information provided is inconsistent. The words will say one thing, but the weather icons will say something else. Sometimes there is weather detail, but others there is not. I wanted this b/c it is truly a local source, but I find myself double checking against the Weather Channel app more than I'd like.

  • Great

    by Lilyuwho

    Thank you for keeping us updated on the weather and news!!!! Great job!!!!!

  • Not Bad

    by Stepwild

    Works ok. The large text for cities is a bit distracting. There doesn't appear to be a sound alert for severe weather. If there is, I haven't found it. The other alert notifications could be more timely. My Weather Underground app is faster with their severe weather alerts. This app should show heat index and wind chill. So there are improvements they could make. Until then...3 stars.

  • Very nice weather app

    by Soloban

    I find this weather app very helpful. It's great having the radar with you wherever you. One improvement I would suggest is on the 10 day forecast tab; it would be helpful to have the chance of precipitation as part of the daily graphic, especially during the summer when there is a chance of rain almost everyday, this would make the 10 day forecast graphic much more informative without having to click through each day to see the chance for precipitation.

  • Amazing

    by ibebaker

    Best weather app to date

  • Needs improvement

    by Kai Ming

    The APP is ok but the 10 day is never updated to the ever changing weather. Seems like its always behind. Can a lightning tracker/distance be added?Also, why can't we see cloud cover along with radar? Would be great if these were addressed. Would love to just have this one App instead of flipping back and forth between this one and others.

  • Great!

    by Janika Crum

    Great for quick weather check and instant alerts during bad weather. So far so good for me.


    by Lacrosse=Life

    Really easy to use!!!

  • Great App!

    by Musicismymiddlename27

    I was hesitant to download this app based on the reviews, but after my favorite- The Weather Channel App- would no longer work on my phone, I've downloaded other weather apps. No other has even compared to this app! I'm loving it- especially right now with severe weather heading our way. Don't let the ratings keep you from this app! Thanks, WAFF!

  • Great info!

    by Mommyof4Kelleys

    No problems with features like storm tracks for me! I am seeing both tornados mentioned on TWC in AR displayed.

  • Great app!

    by Hsv res

    Most bad reviews come from when radar was down due to tornado strike & people were unaware the was no radar. This app works great & is a definite go-to in a storm.

  • Nice storm tracking!

    by Norford Lit

    It's great app with awesome information on my fingure tips!

  • Oh WOW!!

    by Steve in Alabama

    I have used Weatherbug Elite for a long time and this new WAFF app just blows it away. The storm tracks make the map a little busy, but the info is priceless during bad weather. WAY TO GO WAFF!!! This will be my new "go to" weather app.

  • Great

    by P1991

    This app is great for quick weather info. Nice radar maps.

  • Great app

    by bjj81

    This app is great, it does exactly what I want it to do with very accurate information.

  • Wonderful app!!!

    by bamagal97

    We use this app all the time to check when bad weather is rolling in! We love it!!! I would recommend it to everyone!

  • Use common sense..

    by Mmaarrt

    I'm 17 and I know how to work this app better than half of you guys complaining. Feel special. To get the storm tracks you have to go to the in-app settings and turn them on. If it's not working then you need to restart your iPhone or download the new update and then restart. Please people, educate yourself. Don't troll on stuff just because your not smart enough to work it. Mr "don't work" down there. Cracks me up. Other than the somewhat troublesome ads, the app functions and runs great. It will really help if the power goes out. I love that it's free as well.

  • Great app!

    by DemonDan333

    Very informative. Wish it didnt have the huge ad at the top of the screen.

  • Interesting

    by Justin Mayhew

    The ads take up a big portion of screen real estate.

  • Finally

    by Fatdaddybulldog

    Great App for local weather. I can finally delete 2 other Apps!

  • Regularly Wrong?

    by geofftaylor

    I have WAFF's weather app along with another from a non-local source. I've recently noticed that more often than not, WAFF's app is wrong, while the other is usually correct.

  • Trucker

    by Bgamble12

    App won't update it's location.

  • Junk junk junk

    by Joey painter

    New update is junk. Crashes when you select future on the map screen.

  • Crashes

    by Wavaho26

    Doesn't even start.

  • Crap

    by Hunter7886

    This app Is crap on apple iPhone needs to be fixed.

  • New update is terrible

    by Jestfon

    Please change this app back to the map that had well defined state lines and counties. It is so hard to look at now. I am looking for a new weather app now.... This one was my absolute favorite. I should've never updated. Ugh.

  • Update terrible

    by Mckimb

    I wish the new version actually showed radar instead of "fog". It makes it very hard to read. I liked the old version better!

  • Redundant

    by JWH28

    Need to be able to choose more precise notifications. I hate being told its going to rain 5 times after it already started raining...

  • 48 storm watch

    by Ester l

    I had this app from almost first day it was available & loved it. Last week i tried using it & it said to update. I did. Now, it says it's no longer supported and I need to update at spp store. I tried. It says it was updated and it says installed but it's gone. I really liked it. How on earth do you reinstall? It simply keeps saying installed.

  • You ruined this app...

    by Nikonrick

    This was a very good app that I liked a lot. But the newest version is junk. Put it back the way it was....quickly. I liked this app a lot, but now it is useless. Get rid of the add, the extra info, and let me turn my iPad sideways again. Q

  • Crashes too often

    by Nalarider

    I'm running version 2.0.1, iOS 5.0.1 on 4G iPod Touch. The app crashes when I try to read the blog. It sometimes crashes when loading the radar map. It also crashes at other times, but they are not repeatable. Not good for an app that should be very helpful when severe weather hits.

  • Worthless

    by Pat Ricochet

    • No backgrounding; reloads every time. • My location doesn't update; always on Huntsville. • Loads ads before weather. • The last straw: 5 tornados tracking right now on the TV. None on this App! I STRONGLY suspect that the second screenshot with the storm/tornado icons is *fake*. Which makes this App actually dangerous, which is sad.

  • Don't work

    by Burr27

    Stop pushing it on news & comercials until you get it working.

  • Won't open

    by Jesus will return soon!

    Looked great so I downloaded, but won't open at all!

  • Won't open

    by liNliN sniff

    This app was working great and now for about a week it won't open at all.

  • crashes

    by Gounalions

    just updated...now it won't open...joy.

  • Ads are annoying

    by Techno-nut

    Don't d/l it because of ads. Why not offer a paid version without the annoying ads that consume valuable screen space.
