Customer Reviews

  • James Spann in your pocket!

    by Meganwhit

    Being someone who hasn't lived in the ABC 3340 viewing area in some years I was so happy to find this app. I trust James Spann and the team to warn us of severe and non threatening storm systems as they move though Alabama. This is great for those of us slightly out of the viewer range, ie Dekalb County. ** The new update is amazing, and finally fits my iphone 5's screen. Thanks ABC 33/40!!**

  • Crashes in iOS 7 please update

    by jwpet

    Crashes in iOS 7 when loading maps, loved it in iOS 6.

  • James spann is the weather man

    by Anna . B. cosper

    I know I can trust on James spann and the team. Keep up the good work guys

  • Fantastic!!

    by Tappanga

    Most dependable weather app out there! Love that I can customize for the city I'm in. Thank you so much!!

  • Great

    by Feleshia

    A lot of great features. It has a transparency feature for the people who couldn't see their location

  • Map overlays

    by titokoalabear

    It's a great app and it has the most current info for Tuscaloosa/Birmingham, but you need to have an adjustment so you can see the map underneath. The precipitation overlay covers roads and cities. If you get that fixed you'd have a 5-Star app!

  • Awesome!

    by Blaketippett

    Great features like storm tracks to show you direction of storm and a future animated radar to show you a futuristic outlook where and what time a storm may approach your location. Also gives warnings and watches and videos. Best of all features the world famous Mr. James Spann! If he can't predict it no one can!

  • Joker

    by Joker0122

    Bring the old map back, and fix the bug about not knowing and storing my current location it always defaults to river chase , if those are fixed best app EVER!!!

  • Telling me Unable to Find Location

    by MommaCG

    I love this app and 33/40! But since the last update, the app keeps telling me it cannot find my current location and is taking a long time to load. I hope this gets fixed soon. I use this app a lot!

  • New map colors

    by Madison74

    Love the app & would have given 5 stars, however, since the last update the standard green rain clouds blend in almost completely with the green of the map. Not sure if it was the ABC 33/40 update or iPhone update that messed it up... Still love the app & ABC 33/40 weather team though!

  • BamaSnowGirl

    by SnowGirl72

    Just downloaded this app & LOVE it! Keep up the good work ABC33/40! Y'all are awesome!

  • 10 day map

    by Shelle1219

    The 10 day map does not load correctly. You are not able to see each day anymore only the last day of the 10 days work. Please fix.

  • Abc 3340 weather

    by tamjasrich

  • Good app

    by Sfortenberry

    Good app but has a hard time remembering my location setting lately

  • Love this app

    by doglovershelby

    This is a must! My only issues are that is has issues connecting during severe weather and it's been ceasing frequently. Other than that, this app is a must!

  • iPhone 5 support please

    by JStan99

    Hasn't been updated to support iPhone 5 yet, even after almost a year of being out. Blog also doesn't update. Please fix, spann is the best.

  • Problem with app

    by ClayB9154

    Says data not available and the time says 8:55 pm no matter what time of day it is please fix

  • Map

    by RbearGbear

    I really dislike this map. Could you please go back to the older map.

  • Not stable!

    by calliedan

    Crashing! Can't load furure map... Too slow.. Blog never loads..

  • Weather App

    by BourbonCop11

    Blog hasn't worked in quite some time. It just spins infinitely and never loads. What's up with that?? I really enjoy reading those. Even the new update hasn't corrected this issue.

  • Radar map useless

    by Pretty Girl Floyd

    The radar map has become useless once precipitation starts. The colors are so opaque you cannot see the actual map underneath, and so cannot tell where your location is. Please fix this! Thanks.

  • Network Error

    by Interceptor208

    I, too, keep getting the network error. This is on the iPhone 5. Used to work perfectly. Can't rate because I can't get past error.

  • Doesn't work on an iPad

    by The_pondog

    Keep getting network error even though my network is connected and working fine with other apps.

  • Map colors are awful!

    by WBM135

    Bring back the old map colors! This update is so hard to read!

  • Defaults to riverchase as location

    by Paigey74

    This app would be great if it stopped defaulting to riverchase.

  • Good app with room for improvement

    by Astronomy Buff

    When it comes to broadcast weather, ABC 33/40 is unquestionably the best in our area, so when I downloaded this app I was expecting the same standard of excellence, not the WSI stock app being used by the joke that passes for a meteorologist at WBRC! To add insult to injury, WBRC does a better job of keeping their video forecast up to date. The 33/40 weather team consistently out performs everyone else in the market, including NWS. I want their forecast via the web, not WSI's. How hard could it be to routinely post the video forecasts and the radar map that includes watch highlights, warning polygons, and lightning strikes that you already prepare for 33.2? Finally, and perhaps most important you need to add a live stream here anytime you interrupt normal programming for a weather emergency. I wouldn't expect this much from anyone else, but I expect nothing less from ABC 33/40.

  • An absolute must

    by Jenn036

    I downloaded this app yesterday, jan 22 2011 when we had some tornado watches in our area. Who knew i would meed it that night! a few hours later the tornado sirens went off. I turned the tv on and saw a confirmed tornado was on the ground and headed my way, downtown birmingham. Then the cable went out. My boyfriend and I headed to the basement and relied on this app to track the storm. When we were down in the basement this app was the only way we knew what was going on. It was constantly updated and it gave us comfort to know what was going on and when it was safe to leave the basement. This app is an absolute must have!!

  • Excellent! Everything you need.

    by MalNurs

    Great app. Very easy to use. Everything you need in a weather app. Im able to use current location or check on where I live or even check the weather/storms where my parents are to make sure they stay safe. Highly recommend.

  • Good app

    by Bama app user

    Would recommend.

  • Really Great!

    by Kenzo Ferrari

    Much better than most other weather apps. When bad weather threatens this is where I turn.

  • Spot on!

    by Bob chicken

    The most complete all around free weather app. This is a news station based out of the south and I believe it to be as accurate as my local forecast here in New England. I like the way it stays up to date. Good Job!

  • Unreliable.

    by Danvik

    Seems it can not connect during severe weather. I always get a cannot connect to network/make sure airplane mode is off.

  • Would love to say it works great

    by BIGtimeG RANT

    But it doesn't. It works perfectly until the weather gets bad and you really need information. Then it "can't connect to the network".

  • Awesome!

    by Jake'n'Leelo

    SO much better than the national weather app I had before. During the last storm I was frantically trying to find a live stream radar to view on my phone while we were in our underground basement. I was so glad to hear James Spann say something about the app during the most recent storm. I downloaded it immediately! The regular ABC 33/40 app has a great traffic map showing slow-ups and accident locations so I got it as well!

  • Super!

    by Hyperfocused72

    This is a superb app for extreme weather. I can get a live TV broadcast of James on my Iphone from any wireless hotspot when my satellite TV is blocked by the rain or I'm not near a radio. This is a real service to us all. Thank you!

  • Love it!

    by Catcat72

    Great app and helped ease my mind during a late night storm!

  • Great app!

    by Jessicaw1218

    I'm loving it so far! Runs great! Thank you for creating this app for all 33/40 Spann fans! Will use this instead of weather channel app!

  • Great App!

    by Tracy Kanatani

    Love the features-radar, 10 day forecast, and alerts. Thank you!

  • Way too slow.

    by Bhamwrxman

    I thought that the app would be great since it was ABC 33/40. Wrong. App is way too slow to load. Times out and closes at times. Even using wifi. Weather underground or accuweater iPhone formatted websites or webapps are still your best bet.


    by ALB24

    Finally a weather app that actually works like it should!

  • Finally, an accurate weather app!!

    by WX Geek

    Now I dont have to gamble on whether or not the other apps will be close to accurate.

  • James spann

    by Shabuffeeeee

    He is the mighty James spann, Rick and bubbas biggest fan!! Could you please add the skycam network!! Awesome app!!
