    by jmhtv52

    THV WX App is my go to WX App now.

  • Best weather app in Arkansas

    by Sboehm77

    Been watching kthv weather faithfully for 20+ years. Great app.

  • More bugs than fixes

    by Rvrknight

    Most recent update ruined the map and radar.

  • Please fix!

    by DramA_MamA83

    Live View radar was awesome... Until it just quit working! :(

  • fix please

    by Yeah_It's_Me!

    all the app keeps telling me is "data unavailable" it's been tell me this for the past month

  • Radar map

    by Miss Lillybeth

    Great app but really really wish the radar map had the state line boundaries marked. Please consider!

  • Use this app

    by RTTV

    I use this on a daily basis. Track bad storms as they pass through the area. Have it set for 4 locations where the kids live, scroll thru with ease and it is usually pretty close to being right. Keep up the good work!!

  • Its not a bad app ppl....

    by Fake app info

    All you hav to do to keep it from going bck to little rock, AR is open the app, press the little house on the right by the key and "i" then pess edit and delete little rock and press use current location

  • Are you kidding me it is a Arkansas station for Pete sake

    by football frank

    If you don't live in Arkansas don't get the app stupid.You have to have enough common sense to get something for your own state and quit filling up the review section with your Complaint about your own bad judgment. With that said this is a great app.

  • Arkansas weather

    by jput

    THV is an Arkansas TV news network. Those who give this app a low rating should have done their homework before downloading!

  • Best radar app I own

    by AngryKittyCat

    Easy to understand. Clear graphics. Love the symbols on the map for tornadoes, heavy rain, wind and hail and the directional cones are great. Love this app.

  • Not Little Rock

    by JRy13

    Finally figured out you have to use the regular radar instead of the Live View radar. Also keeps setting Little Rock as my home town.

  • It's okay

    by Tiffanyniehaus

    Just wish you could get their news articles on it.

  • Good app

    by Kamq11465

    Good app. Works very well for me in northern va. Area. Great job

  • Needs update

    by Eewsnanny

    Keeps crashing. Love it, please fix

  • Best weather I've had

    by scotyv

    This is the best app I've had so far. Out performs weather channel and other apps I paid for. For my iPhone 4 and my area of Hampton Roads, VA this is by far the best app. Kept me up to date during hurricane Irene and tropical storm Lee and never was slow or cut off.

  • Well done.

    by Joe 1337

    Much better than the weather channel app.

  • Nice weather app

    by puddy007

    Reliable, accurate weather info. Would like if dew point temperature could be added to present conditions. Any former Weather Channel app users should switch to this one. Nice job!

  • Great app

    by Liquidme

    This weather app works great, keep up the good work. Thank you

  • My Go To Radar App

    by Retro Daddio

    THV has the best radar of any app I've used (as of version 1.6). It shows far more detail more clearly when zoomed, and looks better than the version they use on the air. The app is slow to start, but never misses a beat when it is fully loaded. I have used it as a storm chasing tool through multiple severe storms this spring, and was able to locate and track storms faster than the "pro" broadcasters at any local station. That's saying something considering how many deadly storms we had this year. The radar is nationwide so I can track weather just about anywhere in the US (useful for keeping up with out of town relatives or when travelling). Everyone has a news app, but if you want an outstanding radar app without getting ripped off, this is the one to get - and it's free too! I don't know where the comment about it not being accurate came from since Ihave found it more accurate than any other radar source - radar hook echoes and actual funnel clouds were spot on accurate in my uses. One quick tip though: turn off the current conditions and intensity charts if you know how to read a radar already to make more room for the actual on screen activity.

  • Not good

    by Pretty girl

    Has been off every time I looked at it... I deleted it. It's a shame because I liked the app it's self. Just not as accurate as I need

  • Radar not working in latest update!

    by Big Pig!

    Use to be the best radar around but it no longer works! First to worst is right!

  • What a piece of crap!

    by Cap.Slo

    Giving this new version even 1 star is 1 too many. Since the latest update the weather map shows data unavailable. It's been over a week and still not fixed. Can the genius who does your app updates!

  • First to WORST!

    by PLaRue

    Used to be my best Weather app but after the update it is now the worst! No radar now! Please fix and update!

  • Doesnt even load.

    by Ezio72

    Its the only place i went for weather. But the radar doesnt even show up. Please fix the crashes.

  • New update broke the radar

    by Lurker5150

    The radar no loner works with the new update. Fix it please.... this was my go to radar app...

  • New version does not work

    by GingerMerkin

    Radar does not work. Don't understand why they would revise an app that works fine with something that doesn't. Totally unsatisfied. Wouldn't even give it one star but can't figure out how to give it Zero.

  • The update broke it

    by J to the d oh

    Worked great before the update. Now during all the rain and thunderstorms all it reads is No Data. Two days and no data.

  • Map

    by Htbhw05

    The map hasn't loaded since the update yesterday. It would be nice to see actual radar instead of a clear map every time I open it!

  • RADAR MAKES NO SENSE

    by DCH1108

    Past. Future. What is present!!??

  • Maps

    by HOYTUSA

    State outlines not present in new map.? Well. Most folks i know use them as a reference point. AccuWeather and MyWeather got what it counts! Barometric pressure readings and good maps. So as my favorite news channel. What can u do

  • I DON'T Live in Little Rock, AK

    by 1anje63

    un-installed because this app incessantly goes to a default setting of LR, AK I live in Indy, don't need to know what is happening in LR, AK btw, takes long to load as well as does intermittently not connect for service

  • Why Little Rock

    by Jeff1140

    I am getting fed up with this app. No matter what I do, it keeps giving me weather for Little Rock. I don't give a rat's you know what about anything to do with Arkansas. Fix it or I'am gone.

  • Stopped updating

    by Bluefriction

    This used to be a great app. The THV radar has not updated for two weeks. It says update time 2:17pm all the time. The other overlays are current. No storm radar.

  • Garbage

    by Cjdauthier

    Hail, lightning, thunderstorms all around. I downloaded this app because of the weather channel's inept radar. Guess what? This one is exactly the same. Shows clear skies everywhere in the country except little rock. Don't waste your time.

  • R u kidding me!?!?!?!?

    by sobercoolcat

    Accordimg to you its not raining anywhere but according to our local weather its raining off the coast of fl are you trying to tell me that there is no where on Gods green earth that its not raining anywhere? Well thats what your exclusive patented radar is telling me

  • Doesn't Work

    by KayeKarma

    The app seems to be broken. It's 7am right now and says it was last updated at 2:30pm. The map never updates to show what's going on with radar; just says "Data Unavailable". At first, this seemed to be the best weather app. Now... not so much. We had severe weather last night, and I was left in the dark about what the weather was doing when our TV went out since this app doesn't do anything anymore. Fix it please??

  • Awesome app

    by Frankie C's IPod

    I think I've seen this app before or something close to it idk it looks familiar idk any way it's a really good app like it alot it's helpful to

  • TORNADOS IN AR THIS AM DEC 31

    by Brad c5films

    I paid $15 for a weather app back in 2008. THV Weather is 10 TIMES BETTER than this and it's FREE! It's Dec. 31 and I woke up to TORNADO SIRENS IN NW Arkansas - I quickly went to my THV app and saw that my home was in the path of a rotation. I followed the storm step by step - read the detailed alerts - and my family and I stayed safe. 3 people were killed by a tornado in Cincinnati, AR - tragic. Being able to turn my iPhone on and know whats going on in seconds is priceless. Thank you THV. This app is easily worth $10-$15. Another great feature that the iPhone 4 has is how the compass works with the map. Very, very impressed with this app!!!

  • Parts man

    by James the parts man

    Really like this app

  • Great app

    by NayNay_Carrie

    Thanks THV !

  • Good...But

    by jkcanewton

    I like this app. Some suggestions would be to offer a paid ads-free version and also have a way to PUSH weather statements. Thanks for a good local app that I hope will continue to be developed into something even better.

  • Eh!

    by Tlynne38

    I love the app except the radar usually never works. If you could fix that this app would be the perfect weather app for any arkansan.

  • Great app, but could use a few tweaks.

    by SouthernGypsy

    This is a great weather app though the map page is a little cluttered even with all the layers turned off and the legend turned off, would prefer to see a dedicated full screen map page. Would also be nice if the map remembered your zoom level from the previous time, I always have to zoom out again. I'd also like the ability to choose my own preferred start page, it always loads the map page first and I have to wait for it to load before I can then go to the 10 day forecast page which is often all I really want to see.

  • Thank U THV

    by Arkiann

    Great app & very accurate. Saw hail storm heading towards my way which gave me time to take cover. Much better than most paid apps. Keep up the good work and maybe add lightening and push notifications!

  • Wish there was a news app

    by Barrett4800

    At first I really liked this app, but have found myself using another local app because it also has news, sports, and weather closings available. Also, wish the app would alert my phone if there is a tornado warning in our area.

  • Very good app!

    by Ahicks83

    I've used two other well known weather apps before realizing thv had one, and I have to say, the thv app is by far my favorite! I love the options and the navigation is great! Exactly what I was searching for.

  • Exemplary Content

    by iApp4

    The app provides a high quality of relevant weather content. Overall, this app is attractive and pleasing.

  • terrible not accurate

    by brettbusby

    terrible and not accurate why isnt there a kthv news app?

  • Nice and accurate!

    by mouse07410

    If it reported pressure too / I'd given it five stars. As it is - it accurately reports & forecasts weather and had decent UI. Near perfect. One bad thing - it seems that the new version (v1.6) stopped predicting/reporting the amount of precipitation.
