I've used this app on every phone I've ever had. It has it has had its ups and downs over the years. The last few years they have leaned hard into trying to convince me to sign up for a subscription while allowing the app to get continually more glitchy. Interesting move. Today I uninstalled and reinstalled the app to try to correct a week long lag issue. It's better but mot fully resolved. I've started exploring other apps.

I've used this app for 10+ years on every phone I've owned and never had issues. I'm not sure what the deal is with the last update (within the last 2 weeks) but this app has turned glitchy and unresponsive for 5-10 seconds at a time. It makes it hard to want to continue using. I'm really hoping there is an additional update for this coming soon. Currently using a Samsung A51 5G.

Slow, unintuitive UI, and way way way too many ads. I know there's a paid version to remove ads but the number of ads is out of control. There's more useless content than weather related content and it slows everything down. The only reason I use this app sometimes is for the radar map. Everytime I have to use it I hate it a little more. Do not recommend. Find a better weather app.
