Reviews

Started with CNN announcement YEARS ago

1
Why suddenly is this frozen in. landscape view rather than portrait. Using iOS 9.3.5 and have never had a problem until last update. Please correct this so I can return to a 5 star review. Have been using this since you first announced on CNN. I got it that day & it's used every day! UPDATE 10Jan2020 What happened to this app? Now using iOS 13.3 on iPhone 11 Max. Living in Tornado Alley, just a few miles from the Oct Dallas Tornado-this app USED to be amazing. Now I can’t zoom in close to street level. If I zoom out, outside a current screen- the UI doesn’t update to show the overlay where it should (example a huge storm-won’t show the weather (like rain) just the map as you zoom out). I think I first downloaded this app back @ 2012/13 when they were interviewed on CNN. It continued to improve & imho was the best out there. Keyword is WAS. I rely on this for tornado warnings and thunderstorms & flash flooding. Today during a tornado warning is when I found out the app is worse than last time I was in it. The alarms are reliable but the rest of the app is becoming a brick. PLEASE UPGRADE and keep it going. In meantime I’ll try NOAA or TWC.

Abandoned iOS App

1
This has now been abandoned by the developers.

No longer works with new IOS updates on iPhone

1
Had the app on my iPhone for several years but it no longer works after new IOS updates have been installed. Freezes up and lots of other issues. Would love for it to work as it did originally and for many years.

Failed

The app was great for a long time. In the last few months it has gone down. Often times I don’t receive data, leaving me without weather information that I need.

Forecast

All of a sudden all I can see is the radar and current condition for my cities. I can no longer see the forecast or the hour by hour. What’s going on

Missing forecasts

The app used to give me the forecast for five days and hourly for two. Now it only gives me current weather only. Not worth the $$ anymore

Used to be great

The app used to be amazing! But recently with all the iOS updates and the developer not keeping up with those updates on their own app... I believe it hasn’t been updated since iOS version 9 and we’re on 13? The app crashes a lot, the alerts rarely work anymore or even at all. Now half the time when I try to even open the app all I get is ‘can’t read the forecast, format isn’t correct’ type stuff. I hope the app gets updated to fix bugs and meet current iOS versions... guess I’ll switch back to Weather channel and NOAA... it’s bad enough I can even get better real time alerts from storm chasers on FB than this app. I want to love it again but it’s getting really hard to. If you are looking for a weather app look elsewhere.

Appears to not work with iOS 13

Have used this as my favorite weather app for years but after upgrade to iOS 13 it doesn’t work.

Loss for Tornado Alley

App was a 5 star when it launched. I relied on it for simple, to-the-point NWS alerts that kept me weather aware. Now it’s current temps and radar like any other weather app—it’s pretty, but feels like the point of the app is gone. Would love to see it return to original version.
