  • The ads

    By Jesinger
    Enough is enough! I can’t even open the app to see the temp without it taking me somewhere else to view spam. You could at least make it worth it and accurately predict the weather. To many adds everywhere
  • iPad Gen 4

    By Lovenutty
    You guys get one star. I have a iPad 4, according to your list iPad 4 not mentioned. I used this app for years did you forget about iPad 4???
  • Pop up ads and video advertisements

    By E.Longo
    When I want to check the weather but a 30 second pop up movie advertisement keeps coming up over and over it ruins this app. I can use a different app instead
  • Need a more recent map, not one that is a few years old

    Need a more recent map
  • Alerts need fixed

    By jerecuda1
    Almost everyday the alerts are turned back on. This needs to stop immediately. No one needs to be woken at 2 am for an alert that says frost warning.
  • Umm.. I’m confused

    By Ashley432567
    This is a great app I use it all the time but when I checked it today I got confused because it said heavy rain Thursday so I clicked on it and it brought me to April 13 which was actually Friday but it’s not the 13th it’s the 18th and it’s still bringing me weather from last week...?
  • Worst weather app out there

    By Innerl
    It wouldn’t be so bad if it actually worked most of the time. Every time I bring the app out of the background it brings up the “getting latest weather info” or similar notification at the top of the screen, which is fine except that it never refreshes and hangs/locks in that position. Half the time when I switch locations it freezes.
  • Notification needs work.

    By Crack Berry David
    I am getting notifications for weather that are no where near me. At first they stopped when I created an account and set up notifications for my area, then a few days ago I started receiving them again.
  • Was great until last update

    By gillette411
    Deleting the app. This is ridiculous. Thanks for not listening to your users. Stop turning on my notifications. It’s ridiculous that I have to turn them off again every single day. If I want to know about the weather, I open the app.
  • Problem with locations and alerts

    By Kwolfbyte
    Locations are not selectable when trying to get alerts turned on in settings. You click settings then enable then it says to select location (or cancel). Location header appears but nothing underneath and it’s not clickable. You can only cancel out at that time. Thereby not enabling alerts for your desired locations.
