This has been my go to weather app for quite a few years, and I usually access it multiple times during the day. However, it just quit working 5/28/2020 without warning. I had used it in the morning but in the afternoon, nothing! Uninstalling then reinstalling the app was unsuccessful. It was the same situation on all our devices that have the app. I'm so disappointed that I have to find another weather app to replace WBTV First Alert.

I have had this app for a couple of years & up until a couple weeks ago i was VERY PLEASED with it. Then it started crashing every time i wanted to open the app to check something. I thought it might be my phone ,so i did a few virus scans & it wasnt. I have reported crashing & no response! I uninstalled it. Now if they fix the last update,correct the customer service aspect & remove ALOT of the ads that popup,i will reconsider using it again because it is to me alot more reliable forecast & user friendly (until now)!

What the older version of a little better when it shows you what the water temp was, especially being I live for swimming in the ocean would be nice to know where the warmer spots are! Not very accurate radar lately.
