I use this when I plan my weekly activities at home and away. It is very easy to use.
I've tried so many weather apps and this is the best out, it's simple, clean and the hourly forecast is in extended detail! Thanks weather channel!
Does not make sense to me that the iPad and iPhone versions have such different data. This morning, both set for Minneapolis, one told me it was -15 and one told me it was -8. The iPhone always seems to be colder. Shouldn't they operate off of the same data feed?
Gives me all the different prices of information that I want in an easy to use format
I like the app. It does what I need and shows me the current and forecast for the places I need.
it has annoying adds thats why I only give this app 4 stars. I would pay to take off the adds. Other then that its a cool app to have since the iPad don't have a weather app like the iPhone.
This is an easy to use, reliable app I use daily. I especially appreciate the severe weather alerts for the cities I follow.
Like 10 day forecast but not the ads
I've never had an issue with this app, and it seems to be as reliable as any news or other app. I really appreciate the feature which sends a severe weather alert depending on where I am in the world. It's been helpful when I travel and don't know about severe thunder storms in the area.
The radar portion of the app doesn't work for the Nashville area.
I love this app. It has great videos and accurate weather. Trust me, that's saying a lot if you are living in bi-polar San Antonio, Texas.
I am getting weather statements that all end at 7pm on Wednesday, regardless of when they are issued. Also noticed that there are differences in the forecast between the iPad, iPhone, and internet versions, at the same time. How can a 60% chance of rain be made up of 15 minute increments that all have a 0% chance of rain?
My favorite weather app on iPad. Like that I can have multiple cities available for quick checks. The forecasts are usually trustworthy and the radars pretty good, with a slight lag. Sometimes I have to change the view to get the radar to update rain.
Not very happy with paying for $6.99 for the app and still have advertising on the thing! App is good just your ad crap I don't want!
This is a good app with good data and a great GUI. Making it a 5 star app!
I've used the information on this ap all over the world, at airports to track a storm, and at home to plan my day. It is reliable and updated constantly. Best ap I have.
Very helpful with the 2014 Winter storm.
I check the weather everyday. Very easy. I have several favorite places.
Good app - worth downloading. App crashes make the interactive map unusable, app crashes after one second when trying to see moving weather. Hope they get is fixed soon.
Best weather app!
Awful. Radar crashes time after time.
After listening to the same Discover commercial three times within 8 minutes, I watched "professional" weathermen guffaw at snow, sharing no bona fide content, and embarrassing what used to be a brilliant network.
- Inaccurate predictions - Doesn't have the ability to find me, I have to enter the location - Building a list of favorite locations isn't static.. the app replaces favorites with my one-time search locations Pity that an organization focused on weather isn't focused on the ease of publishing that information
The maps are useless and hardly ever work
Won't load or just keeps crashing over and over and over again.
Way too much advertising. And not as detailed weather info as before. I had this app for years but it's getting worse, so I quit.
Advertising has taken over. Good app if you want to bye something!,
This app freezes more often than not....very annoying.
Too slow and it limits you to 10 cities to track weather. Doesn't provide any of the detailed info that a lot of the other APPs provide (wind speed by hour, marine forecasts, probability of precip by hour, live cameras, etc) Accuracy of forecasts is not real good. There are much better APPs out there for weather that provide you with a LOT more information.
As of this writing at 20:25 GMT+1, Nice, France shows partly cloudy at 24 deg F, same for neighboring Cannes, France. Actual temperature in both places is 46 deg. Temperatures can never be so low in this coastal stretch of the French Riviera, but this app consistently show such low temperatures. Interestingly, the forecasted temps are correct at ~ 55/45 deg F.
The most recent version doesn't play videos with sound; only silently. I have come to enjoy many of the videos but I can only watch the silent version.
App crashes and closes. A "report problem" pop up comes up during the crash but even that crashes before I can click it.
What happened to this iPad app? My phone app is ok but the iPad app is not user friendly. The layout has way too much going on. Simplify it. And get rid of the grid at the bottom.
With 7.0.4 iPad 2.
I'm not sure if something changed in the last couple of months but I'm not able to trust the forecasts anymore. They've been so wrong so many times lately that I am looking for a new app. The interface however is very well designed and looks great. Once they get their forecasts consistently accurate they will have the complete package.
useless spinning wheel of death nothing more.....this app used to be good !
This app works when it wants to. Most of the time it looks as if it is loading and then it just stays blank.
Rarely loads local data, even though I've added my city/state/zip. We're about to get slammed with a winter storm, and it's not working again; no radar, no forecast, no alerts, no nothing. And then there's the ads....Ridiculous.
First is started with no weather radar at the default magnification, I had to zoom out to see the weather, and sometimes chunks of the radar layer were missing. Then my home location turned into blanks. No data, no temperature, no town name. Reset the iPad (iPad 4 128gig). No luck. Deleted and reinstalled. Now it cannot find any town. Not even major cities. All data is blank. Deleted the app, reset the iPad, installed the app, reset the iPad, still no luck. Even as the only active app, it would not run. I used to really like the app. My favorite interface. Even willing to tolerate those stupid flashing ads.perhaps DirecTV has the right idea. I'm moving on...
Doesn't show anything and crashes if I try adding a city or hitting any buttons. Not worthy of even one star.
This revision is very disappointing. Extremely slow
Since the update it lost my home location and can't find me anymore. It used to update locations instantly and now takes awhile to do so. It also crashes frequently. I used to never have any problems with this app, it ran perfectly. I run it on my iPad.
Can't search and lost home and favorites
App is continuously crashing, unable to load even current location. "Send error report" pops up regularly. This used to be a good app, what happened?
Was a great app. I have the paid iPhone app and use both every day but it seems with the latest update they have become very unstable. The radar is almost unusable. Glitchy and crashes almost every time
Whenever I clicked on this app, it does open but crashed it and closed it and pop screen to report it by click send report it which I couldn't click to send report it. When it will get update to be fix it?????
Used to love TWC app, but am now looking. For something else because of the flashing ads. They are so annoying that I'm deleting TWC app altogether. Wise up.
Hate the flashing ads at bottom, very distracting. I understand you need to have ads, but these are so annoying.
Was good before, but now when I go to the radar map, it flickers all the time then shuts off. UPDATE PLEASE.
I'm wondering why most of the screen space is given to an irrelevant photo, while getting an actual written forecast for the week is difficult. Used to be my most used app.
I will have to get rid of this app if it keeps having flashing Ads.
Takes forever to load!!!!!!, good thing I have other weather apps to use, they have better radar!!...
Don't know what ad network they use, but flashing junk on the bottom of the screen make it too annoying to use! There are enough alternatives.
I had really liked this app earlier. The new version with extremely distracting visual ads is odious. Avoid this app.
Like others have written, it's crashing before it opens. Is anybody in there? If it gets fixed, I will change the rating.
Flashing/distracting ads, worst than X10 ads of yester years.
Continues to crash. Can't even get into the app
The videos have no sound. I deleted and re-loaded it twice - still no sound! What the heck!
It wasn't broken but is now. Not sure what previous version I had but it didn't work either. Thought maybe it was just out of date but upon update. Same problem, try to start the app and it crashes, the only difference is not it teases you asking if you want to submit a report without actually letting you. You guys dicked it up pretty bad, so now I have to find a different weather app. Then again it seems the actual channel has vanished from my cable line up now so maybe that's why.
I want to like this weather app but can't. The layout is good but the forecasts are not. But even if the forecasts were better, the new ads are absolute show stoppers, with flashing red and white banners that you can't turn off. I removed the application as soon as those ads started to appear.
I used to love TWC, but now they rarely get the weather right, the videos often fail to start though the commercial always manage to work and that yellow and pink flashing ad makes me feel sick and distracts terribly from the video. It's difficult to navigate and slow to load, I'm off to find a new app today, sorry TWC, can see why Direct TV dropped you now - too much fluff not enough serious weather.
I used to rate this with five stars but with the flashing Obama ReFi ads distracting on the edge of the weather I have no choice.
This is ridiculous. I sent an email to developer requesting that they correct an inaccurate wx report for San Remo, LG, IT. They haven't done so shows it's snowing which it is Not and a temperature absurd. Wrong. I'm deleting this app
Buggy, inaccurate, distracting ads - please get your act together!
Won't open since the last update on my iPad air. I used to love this app, but I have been forced to find other sources to check my weather. Waiting on a solution. Absolutely horrible right now
Disappointing app. Have to choose favorite cities, can't just see entire weather map w temps, etc. Blaring, flashing ads are very annoying. Not good.
Slow to load. Radar just crashes out. Can't remove cities I just wanted to check temporarily.
Zoom on map yields undeterminable results. Maybe you'll see the weather patterns maybe you won't. Maybe part of the clouds or snow or rain or whatever will show maybe part of it won't. You'd think the weather channel could get it right.
Use it daily, at least when it is cold. Good tool to have.
Great app. Use it several times during the day without any glitches.
I have had versions of this app for many years and they were great. Sadly, this latest one is simply unusable. The radar doesn't work, the weather page will not open on my preferred city and then it simply closes. Wait for a better version.
Use it all the time never let's me down looooovvvveeee itttttt!!!❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
I’ve had this app for some time now and I really enjoyed it when there were animated backgrounds of rain, snow, clouds, etc. It seems like it’a always had this ribbon of news squibs across the bottom but for the last two months or so, there’s this horrible image of something called “Grid Breakers” of some poor schmuck lying in snow with a frozen beard. Yoiu can see this in the first image in the “Details’ tab. I do wish TWC would remove that image. For now I’ve gone to another weather app that doesn’t display cruel photos.
See that big location name, postal code, and temperature block above the push pin on the map? Yea, we don't need that. It sorta kinda blocks a good portion of the radar near our current location, and you won't allow us to make it go away... Do the people that created the map actually use it? This seems like a rather obvious problem to fix...
Nice to know local weather, and weather for travel! Plus it works to keep track of weather where friends and relatives are....use it often!
Generally, this app is very useful. However, sometimes it is really wrong. I don't know if it 'hangs up' and or just hasn't updated. Having said that, the map is great for seeing if weather is moving in. Update Jan 2014: The map hasn't worked in the last several months. NO radar is shown unless one zooms out. Totally useless now. Please fix. It used to be so good. Temperatures are completely wrong, as well.
I used to love this app but it seems that there is a bug because I can no longer find a city at all. Please fix this soon so I can use your app again.
Nice, clear photos; up-to-the-minute weather updates; info n hows of interest. No loading problems. Like this app.
I downloaded the app today and tried to find it on my ipad
This is not easy to get around in and that ad thingy on the bottom is irritating. Really, I wouldn't even bother.
Whenever you open the app it crashes. I even restarted it and it crashed. I reinstalled it and it kept crashing.... PLZ fix this!,
Unfortunately, the program has become useless. No information is posted and the program keeps crashing on my iPad. Until the program is fixed, don't waste your time!
App is not working today. Love this app but with this massive storm hitting. I can't get my information from my favorite app. I guess I will use the website itself. Disappointed.
Used to love this app but as a Directv subscriber it's ironic that since their dispute now my app will not show my home locations weather any longer...not a problem I'll just use yahoo weather or my local news channel app. Your retaliation tactics are desperate and pathetic TWC
Now it won't even allow me to get locations. I ended up deleting the application and when I reinstalled it, it doesn't return any locations when you do a search in order to add them
I'm getting a blank screen after numerous attempts to reinstall, update, etc...Direct TV dropped them? You'll hardly miss them if their program is anything like their app...
This was the best weather app that I've ever used. But as of 2 days ago this app just quit, stop working nothing so fix this app please.
Installed on my iPad Air. Does not work at all. The old iPhone app that I had on the iPad worked fine with the exception of no landscape view. I deleted the iPhone app thinking the new iPad app would replace it. Big mistake, because now I can't seem to be able reinstall the iPhone app. Very disappointed as the Weather Channel app was my primary weather app.
After the most recent update, the app is useless. It will not recognize my location, and will not allow me to enter one in. Just sits there blank. Have tried deleting, rebooting, etc., and it still does not work on the iPad.
This is my go to app when I need to know what the weather will be for the next few days. This is especially helpful when traveling out of the country. Easy to use!
The latest version forces you to view adds at the bottom of the screen. I would rather pay for this application, if it meant getting rid of the advertisements. If a fix doesn't come soon, I'll delete the app. Numerous other weather apps do not have any advertisements!
Fantástic and very useful ap. Thank You
App is good except of a pretty big bug. I have a ipad mini retina on ios 7.0.4 and the videos have no sound. This is clearly some issue with app compatibility with ios 7 and devices with 64bit as my 5s has the issue while my wife's 5c is fine.
I have grown tired of seeing your appeals for your app users to join a protest of DirectTV's decision to drop the Weather Channel. I am not a subscriber to DirectTV so I am not motivated by your appeals. I do not subscribe to ANY cable, telephone, or satellite broadcast service. I access your services on the web using my laptop's browser and mobile apps. I put up with the endless ads in order to utilize the information you provide. If you cannot restrain yourselves I will use your competitors' apps.
It's my Go-To app for weather.
Where's the tv live stream? i want to watch twc on my iPad Mini and fix the problems
This app, why I keep it I don't know, but it never seems to get better. In the amount of time I've had it, which definitely longer then I care to admit, the radar has never worked. It just never loads. The touch parts of the app are sluggish at best. When I try to close a day's details, it skips ahead and opens another day without the closing the one I wanted. This process takes too long to work correctly. It constantly misreads what I "click" on and through countless updates these basic problems seem to persist. I'm sad that the weather channel can't seem to get it together.
I would think that the Weather Channel is a great application!
Because of the directv and the weather channel dispute, I have decided not to support the weather channel. Until the dispute is resolved, I will use other weather services.
Radar never works. I have to zoom in or zoom out to see the weather in my area. Radar freezes all the times. Sometimes the weather doesn't refresh itself, and it's usually when something big happening. I'm really disappointed. I expect more from the weather channel.
