The Weather Channel: Forecast Reviews


Glitches  elijeremy  2 star

Please fix the glitches! The latest update is not smooth when scrolling causing the adds to pop up at the most inconvenient time with sound no less! The tab for the storms in your area no longer works. If I have music playing it now causes it to stop periodically when I open the app. I love this app and have “weathered” through other issues but this time it just adds up to to many! Thanks


Bad app    1 star

This app is terrible it lags horrible and it does not do well with different locations.


Move video  wyv3  1 star

One of your recent updates makes it more difficult to swipe to other locations...why?!?

just the haters

Fake news  just the haters  1 star

Weather is a fake construct from the government to cover up 9/11 and the fake moon landing. Hail the rainmaker And murder all liberals #KYS


No local weather automatically  Brutascacher  1 star

What happened to the Follow Me weather info? It used to give the local info by default. The app is incredibly slow and now responds to random inputs. It used to flow very fast. iPhone 5s 10.3.3


Weak sauce  Edawgy  1 star

10/17/17 UPDATE! Well I just updated to the newest version... and NOTHING is better. The lag is mind numbingly slow, no change in radar loading and I realize the version I am using is free, but come on TWC. The last two updates have done nothing to actually make this a better app. In fact it has gone from A marginally functioning app to a downright terrible app. Everything is super slow to load, the radar won't load at all, and the last page in my list of cities now loads first so I have to scroll all the way back to the first city on my list which takes a solid 2 to 3 minutes since it is so incredibly slow. Weak sauce!!


Not compatible with device  Mghunt1  2 star

I have a iPhone 5c and still am not able to update the app. An error message displays saying it's not compatible with my device. Is this ever going to be fixed or should I just delete the app?

5 Star!  SLK Dude  3 star

What happen to swiping across to get weather in different cities? Did OS11.0.3 take that away? Lost some stars for that.


Adds open by themselves  Cjohns7777  1 star

Nothing like being in a quiet room and having an add open by itself and start screening at you.


Horrible  et2006  1 star

I previously rated this app four stars (missing one because I was unsatisfied with the hurricane information section) but not going to a one star. I used to love this app but I have to echo many others due to this update. You can't scroll between cities. Everything lags. And for me, I keep getting an error message that says "couldn't update your forecast. Please check your internet connection and refresh to try again." My internet connection is fine and I've tried to refresh with and without WIFI and nothing. What's the point of having a glitchy app. TWC if you can't get it together soon, I'm switching.

Imagine not knowing what a forecast is, and thinking all these years The Weather Channel's local on the 8s has been controlling the weather.


Continually declining  Tanner12  1 star

App continues to have an increasing amount of bugs. Unable to update data or change location, ads that go fullscreen without the ability to close, radar doesn’t update.


Bad app  joedog11  1 star

I used this app for ten years and always loved it, but now ever since their iOS 11 “update” nothing works. I no longer receive weather notifications, the app itself is sluggish and incorrect. I love the weather channel on tv but you guys need to hire someone that knows how to build an app or else you’re gonna lose a lot of customers. I know I’m deleting this useless app today. I have many other weather apps that put you guys to shame. Anyone thinking of downloading this app...don’t. It’s not what it used to be.


Extremely poor performance  FlyingCessna  1 star

You’d think a weather app would have difficulty bringing an arguably powerful device to its knees, but TWC sure showed us. Gonna go ahead and delete this in the meantime.


Needs improvement  Greg21040  1 star

Since the update the app opens at the location last searched. It used to always open to the current location. Everything else is good.


Apple Watch app won’t connect, no easy way to contact developer  Bostonforlife  1 star

Trying to use the Apple watch app and no data comes up and eventually I get a message saying “connection not available”


Can someone add this?  Pudsydoodle  4 star

Wouldn't it be cool to include historical averages in the info section where humidity, pressure, UV index are displayed? I'm in Alabama in mid-October and it's 85 degrees... if the app displayed the average temp for this time of year, I'd know whether to be shocked or not. (If this is displayed somewhere, I'm missing it.)


Accurate  PaganPliskin  5 star

This app is more accurate than my local newscasts

Great game,.,.

Too much on home page, loads extremely slow  Great game,.,.  2 star

There is way too much info on home page when app is pulled up that it takes minutes to actually start using the app. Then once you start to scroll thru or try to go to another function (i.e. radar) it takes forever to download. Simplicity would would suit them well


Can't get it to work anymore!  Duchessban  2 star

I had this app but now for some reason it won't download on my phone! I tried to update it but it said it wasn't compatible with my phone so I decided to remove it and reinstall it. Now it won't even reinstall says it isn't compatible!! What's up with that??!! Why doesn't it work on 5c anymore?? It worked fine until you decided to change it!! Now I have to find another weather channel to use!


Slow and glitches  Fixthisappx12121  1 star

0 stars, app deleted. Unfortunately if you don't pay for a subscription it's loaded with ads and videos which make the app very slow and freezes as the ads and vids constantly load.
