  • Update screwed it up!!

    by lfbj00

    When the update came out this past week, it caused the 10 day forecast section to screw up. Fix it!! This WAS the best weather app I've had.

  • Ok

    by Dr.Boggs

    Would be great if you removed the lengthy ad for your other app at startup

  • Nice so far but...

    by Calipoo11

    This morning I looked to see what the high was going to be and it said 46. Considering it's 53 right now I would say that is inaccurate.

  • Bad name for app

    by iPhunnn

    Needs to have the number three (wave 3) in app title so that it's more visible on an app search for "wave 3".

  • Cool

    by Eldontee

    Very convenient if your electric's out

  • Video

    by Jodath79

    Can't view video section. Anytime I try and click on any of the videos, it goes to a black screen and then goes back to the video section. Other than that, great app! :-)

  • Great

    by Sudfan

    All the weather info at my fingertips!

  • Awesome!!!!!

    by Matthew Pate

    Radar looks way better than any other in my opinion and the 10-day forecast is nice and smooth. Great app all around!

  • Detailed

    by Anna Carsrud

    The is the first app I've rated in a year, it's the only one I've felt thats worthy of reviewing... It has several options and shows whatever city you're in. Really nice, especially for free!

  • Best local weather!

    by Brboxer

    We have been having a lot of storms lately and I can't get enough of this app!! Fast and accurate!! Love it!

  • Great app!!!!!!!!!!!!

    by Cards1973

    Easy to use. Fast access to radar map w/o needing to type a bunch of stuff or hunt for it. I like it better than the weather channel app!!!

  • Perfect!

    by seymour5


  • Great App

    by Weather Nut 40031

    Best app on my phone.

  • Thank you WAVE 3!!!

    by BustaCapBob

    Outstanding free weather app. Map loads quickly and is accurate within 5 minutes. Location feature is a bit annoying but can be fixed.

  • Easy to use

    by Rekoj42

    Best weather app I've encountered so far. I would appreciate allergy, pollution and pandemic information available as an overlay or a pop-up screen. I agree with previous reviews regarding location and compass setting.

  • Awesome

    by CletusBaird

    Great new app. Best local app by far. So much better than weather channel and weather plus for local weather info. ------ You can set your own hometown. While you are on the screen to change your town. Select use current location as default and delete Louisville so that your town is the only choice. It works every time.

  • Great...but....

    by Reasonator

    I see one small feature that annoys me a lot. The "show compass" setting is reset to "off" every time I open the app! Now, I understand that the show compass only works when viewing the map in "current location". But if I set the default view to current location, there should be an option to keep the compass view shown all the time without having to go back into the settings each and every time I run the app!? Please programmers, fix it so that this is possible, thanks! More stars in a new rating when I see that feature implemented.

  • I like the app

    by sewdragondesigns.com

    I would like to see a minor tweak where I could set my current location as my home, so that the app always opened there

  • Excellent!!!

    by Lawnboy8445

    Happy to see a weather focused app from WAVE 3. I am a weather app junkie and this is one of the best. Only complaint is I would rather see a grey background instead of the satellite view. Green RADAR echoes are hard to see on a green background. It gets a little cluttered. Horizontal viewing of the map to make it larger is NICE. Would LOVE to see the addition of the blog.

  • Handy

    by Nachoadept

    I really like it. There is one issue I perceive and that is on a 10 day forecast when you point at a specific day more data comes up. This is nice. However, sunrise and sunset times are in GMT (i think) and not local time. It needs to be able to adjust to DST and local time zones.

  • (fox 41)WDRB weather, app clone

    by Digitaldeath187

    I have never saw one app clone of of another

  • Unreliable

    by Jrodaman

    I try to rely on this for my landscaping business. Every time I plan a job on what Wave 3 says will be a dry day, I get rained out. They don't know what's happening until it does.

  • Was working, now junk

    by Srv73117

    Was a great app. Radar was detailed. Now just locks up and fails to even start. Please fix!!!

  • Cannot see radar

    by Dailydog

    The warning area graphics make it impossible to see the radar info. There's no way to turn them off. I had to download 11 and 32's inferior apps while huddling in a closet with my family. Fix this please!

  • Carknocker

    by Hiserman

    Best weather app period! Even better because it's local. Add the weather blog and it will be the complete package.

  • Great, but......

    by gem969

    Please move the Current and Forecast to it's own page so the map is bigger. Paying a buck or two to remove the ad would be nice as well.

  • Wonderful

    by Jpink23

    Working outside, it is imperative that I have accurate weather information. This app is by far the best I've tried. I love how easy it is to navigate and switch to different tabs and settings. I feel I can trust it better since it's local. Thanks Wave 3!

  • The Beat

    by Mark32570

    Easily the best weather app out there. I'm surprised its free, although I would gladly pay a buck or two to have the ad banner removed. Other than that, this app has the most features of any free app I've tried and havn't had any problems yet.

  • Love it!

    by Cassielouwho1983

    This is great--and so much easier than getting weather from the regular wave app... And definitely more reliable than the weather channel app.
