Get all the information I need pretty quickly with or without the paid subscription. I can get weather alerts and set up other locations to get alerts for. I would like to have the alerts be more noticeable in my notifications. I never see them until much later, which isn't very helpful. They are there, just not loud or different enough and get lost at the bottom of my notifications list. I tried settings, no luck. Otherwise, Very good weather and reporting. I use this app Daily.

Wow. Seven ads on one screen. That's a lot. As long as there aren't fake scam ads with fake error messages (I've seen those on my old weather app, which is why I uninstalled it), then I can't complain too much. This app is all right, but instead of an ad at the bottom of top of the screen, this has ads sandwiched between all the weather info. Slightly intrusive, but what else would I expect from IBM? They want big bucks.

For yrs I used to have 3 weather apps on my phone & watched local TV weather daily. Weather matters to me. The extreme heat / humidity & bitter cold of winter. And when it's going to rain. The weather Channel & their app is the most accurate of everything. And their premium makes the experience even better. I don't subscribe to any other apps except this one. This is the first positive review I've ever written about an app. I hope they never change the look of the app too, it's simple and easy.
