TWC app had peaceful coexistence of prior iPad version and a newer version 11. Horrible format, geared for an iPhone or Android rather than a tablet. Before, use of the whole screen space allowed easy-to-find and easy-to-read weather reports, current, that day, and the week with a single glance. Now, it is like a little phone screen format, broke up into little boxes, with little features, with the need to surf past the ads. It’s such a dysfunctional interface that, after about20 years of this app, that I’m searching for a different, better app. Would love to love TWC as I have for years but they have prompted the emergent need to escape their functionless madness! Hope they rethink their format.
The ads have gotten out of control to the point I cringe when opening the app.
I had a problem trying to open the app. I had to remove it and reinstall. Guess I had an older version and really liked it.i find this newer app a bit of a pain trying to navigate around !
Ever heard if it isn’t broke don’t fix it! The format on this version is horrible!
Title says it all
Videos no longer play but give a “no data found” error when attempting to play. Intrusive data harvesting.
This is definitely not as good as the 2018 Weather Chanel App. I understand software changes are sometimes needed and maybe these changes were needed to support advertising etc. But I don’t understand, why they would move from a platform that had great features, to new one that’s a piece of junk. We were able to see a five day forecast a glance. And if you wanted a longer forecast, a left/right screen swipe showed five more days of forecast. And viewing forecast of multiple city was just as easy. Swipe the screen above the five day forecast and another other city’s forecast popped in. The old app made good use of a single screen view and a tap or swipe made it easy to navigate to forecasts. The latest app tends to jump to a detailed daily screen that must be scrolled vertically to read. It was much easier to scan weather trends horizontally. I’m moving on to another App, until they recognize and reinstitute the quick great features they abandoned. Just because you can change something, doesn’t always mean you should change.
I do not like this newer version. It’s not user friendly like the one I had last week that stopped working, so I had to download this one. Yuck. I can’t navigate it the way I could before, nor dies it allow me to have more than 5 zip codes saved to check places as I travel and had saved to look at quickly.
Beautiful videos and great news
Hate this new weather channel app .Too many boxes liked the old familiar one it was so much quicker to get info that I was looking for .I don’t want to see news just weather and be able to quickly slide to see weather in other states where family lives Change isn’t always a good thing
