Customer Reviews

  • Great app

    by Stmugrad

    The weather channel gets it done.

  • Best weather app ever!

    by McKTeach

    This is a great weather app. I have a very accurate atomic clock in my backyard in this weather app is always within 1° of it. I love the hourly weather predictions as well as the 36 hour and 10 day outlook. The radar is also excellent. I have never had any problems with it.

  • Great weather app.

    by Gokat1

    I love this app and use it frequently. It gives me the best and most information on my local weather that I need.

  • Use it all the time

    by JunieMae

    Have it on my phone and my desktop. Love it! It how I plan my days

  • Franmomva

    by Franmomva

    LOVE the Weather Channel app! I often get warnings / advisory messages before my weather radio alarms. This is a safety feature I depend on. Also use it to check situation of sites away from me - my dad in another state, travel plans. Delete other apps when phone gets too full, but not this one!

  • It will do

    by Videomasterman

    You're probably better off watching your local TV station. I do like the radar.

  • Not bad, radar needs help

    by Ldybug8084

    The app itself is not bad at all. The only thing I find frustrating is that the radar will usually be anywhere from 15-45 minutes old. That of course makes it horribly inaccurate when you're trying to figure out when weather events will be headed your way. Just wish the radar was updated more often. Other than that the app is good and for the most part very accurate.

  • Use it all the time

    by Bbachrac

    Very convenient as I travel

  • Just eh..

    by Papillon love

    Please fix the radar. There are spots that are always blocked out. Otherwise it's a great app.

  • Nice

    by Zeus007_98

  • TWC

    by mgx7

  • Ignore them

    by Nancydrew3

    I have been using this app for 2 yrs & find it the easiest & most accurate from others. I ESP like the feature that allows you to save numerous cities as faves to ck in on their weather. My friends & family across the country access this all the time! It makes you feel more connected.

    by Papa jack26

    Love everything about it but it takes forever to load

  • Best



  • Inaccurate

    by somebody in illinois

    I'm good with the layout and speed. The forecast has been wrong. In 36 hours it predicted 1-3 inches of snow would fall while all other media predicts 6-8". We got 6". Today the current radar isn't accurate. I need more something reliable.

  • Great app!

    by Jturbo325

    I use it daily

  • Excellent App

    by Abu Asaf

    by Sunnywun1

    Yep it's an addiction. But a good one. I know if my plants might need to come in. I get alerts and I have all my family's cities saved too! Get it you'll love it. :)

  • Bad app

    by Kyle Sproles

    Crashes and is super slow. Not a good app

  • Decent. Good info.

    by Kellbell00

    Pretty good. Sometimes it's slow and freezes though.

  • Horribly inaccurate

    by ManWithNoName81

    The only use for this app is the radar. It is almost always horribly inaccurate. Examples include it saying that there will be 100% chance of rain for the next four hours, but there not being a cloud in the sky. Another example is how it has often forecast a 0% chance of rain for the following day, and then it pours. The forecasts are so bad that I was beginning to wonder if I had accidentally put in the wrong city, but no, it is pulling forecasts for my city. I've heard that the forecasts that the weather channel uses are actually 24-48 hours old, which might explain it's inaccuracy. I got an app for a local news station that provides far more accurate forecasts and will be deleting this one. A shame, because I like everything about this app other than the actual forecasts.

  • Mr. Frezz

    by Jibber Jabber &:

    I use this app almost everyday!

  • Dependable

    by Grandi23

    I rely on this app to know how to dress and what to carry every day in North Carolina, where it will rain on a sunny day or be in the 20's one day and 60 the next. I appreciate the extras - humidity, sunset, dew point, etc.

  • Reliable

    by Surayita

    Love my weather channel ap, most accurate,up to date, instant info. The only one I use.

  • Five Star App

    by gorlmama

    I like the ability the app has to set zip codes up to check weather in several areas I'm interested in very easily.

  • Good app

    by donna from LV

    This app does exactly what I want, quickly.

  • Reliable

    by robinmck

    I check the app several times a day and find it to be pretty accurate.

  • The best app!

    by JackMor

    I had this app for a while now and I can say that even though it might not be always 100% accurate or updated as often during the day, however the fact of the matter is that it is the most accurate app comparing to all the ones out there! Easy to navigate and friendly user...

  • The weather channel ap is good

    by Larkylooz

    by DynamiteDmoney

    Works what else can I say? Yahoo weather is cool app but slow as hell and I find this to do the job, however not impressed....

  • TWC

    by UniqueCouturess

    This app is so descriptive. I love how I can find out the time a storm is going to start/end etc. I use it everyday. :-)

  • Excellency

  • Love this app!

    by WordOO

    Use it daily, often several times! I plan my activities with it. It always works and works accurately. The team that put this app together did a great job! Thank you!

  • The weather

    by Fort18

    Excelente muy bueno el app

  • Pos

    by Disappointed user from md

    Fire the team that designed this app and the website. Unpredictable, crashes, doesn't load at times. Both site and app need less bs pretty stuff and ads, and more reliability. I don't look at my weather app for pictures of flowers or ads for new cars. I need a reliable presentation of what the future weather may hold.

  • Great weather app

    by ffnewbs

    Great weather app, just needs better weather alerts/ customizable weather alerts

  • Weather

    by Grosic84

    Best weather app ever. Love it.

  • Great app!

    by Lamb_of_god_freak

    I love this app. Makes finding the weather easy for home and all of my travels!

  • Great forecasts, BAD app

    by Rprie

    Weather Channel reports are great, sorry for the app; it's so slow and almost can't see the radar map which doesn't load well.

  • TWC

    by Rowndroker

    Great app. I check it daily - sometimes several times a day. The weather impacts my job. Great app - I've found TWC app to be accurate.

  • Good info but freezes

    by 615cheryl

    The app gives accurate reports and has a lot of options. It's way better than the iPhone app, except that the newest version freezes if you don't kill the app between views. Also, they got rid of weather pictures and have ads for the background, which is fine, but it used to be better.

  • Radar Map not great

    by misslancey

    I gave this app 3 stars because the radar map needs adjusted. I don't look at the map to see what happened in the past or what's in the future. I want to know what's happening now. So instead of using your Radar Map I use accuweathers. I do love the 36 hour description.

  • Blessed

    by Supermodel 11

    No complaints!

  • Really robust app

    by eugenepp

    I really like this app. Lots of great features like weather alerts and actual forecasts, something you can't get with the pos Yahoo app that comes with the iPhone. I just wish the yahoo app could be deleted as it is a waste if storage space.

  • Nice app

    by LB Bub

    Really nice weather app!

  • Like it!

    by amyro

    Very helpful!!

  • Good as it can get.

    by Snowwhyt

    You'll notice the 36 hour forecast is pretty much spot on. When you see an usual weather situation happening 7-8-9 days out in the future, figure that it could happen a day earlier or day later. You could get more or you could get less. When you consider it's an electronic model that they use, with typical parameters, it's not too bad but don't look at the long term as set in stone!

  • Dependable app

    by Fishin49er

    This app never let's me down thanks

  • Weather!!!!!

    by Pinned.

    The first place I check!!!

  • Great app

    by DebtheTodd

    I use this app everyday. Love it

  • Everyday user

    by Chillyflea

    I use this app almost every single day and I think it works great. I would give it five stars if it just loaded a little faster.

  • Lee

    by sasquatch aka bigfoot

    I like this app i use it nearly everyday. I have 4 or 5 citys i have as favorites and check on them as well as hometown

  • Good

    by Captain UA

    I trust their forecast almost as much as local

  • Handy

    by dcfd313

    I use this app everyday

  • Great app

    by LarryVid

    Sure, it runs a little slow, especially on an older model phone, but that's to be expected from an app that has so much info to update and process. I think it's great otherwise. Has been useful and accurate in my line of work as a landscaper. I can't think of any other app I trust as much to plan out my work day

  • Love it !!

    by Gtepwisc&

    The only weather that matters !!

  • Good app

    by Bignatethegreat08

    Relatively accurate. The radar is a good feature but the forecasts always seem to change in my area. That's just the weather in general I guess though

  • Great

    by Dad----3

    Love this app

  • Stop with the ads!

    by Blondie116

    I was so glad for the last update that got rid of the ads in the main screen background until I opened it today and we are back to ads again! STOP IT WITH THE ADS! If this wasn't the best weather app I could find I would delete it out of annoyance!

  • Better than

    by FABiOSO 2.0

    Tom Skilling!

  • Terrific Weather App

    by Disney Fan05

    This weather app is very nice.

  • Love the app

    by Swalker1621

    Use the app everyday.

  • Very reliable!

    by Watsons2012

    One of the first things I check in the morning, I prefer TWC over Apple's weather app.

  • Informational

    by plrfarmgirl

    This app gives me the pertinent information for my area and keeps me informed of the weather in my other "favorite" locations. I wish there was more nautical information. Maybe I just haven't found it yet.

  • Weather Channel

    by AppleGee

    Fair weather reporting - as hit & miss as most. With amazing new technologies, it's hard to understand why you (and others) are mostly so inaccurate - especially when it counts. Your TV, website and apps concentrate on far too much constantly repeated peripheral boring non-interesting programs/information. Try & get the weather right before attempting to become a relative TV station.
