I used to rely on this app, but I feel like the forecasting has become really unreliable. Hate all the ads that constantly pop up. Also hate that I had to turn off so many different kinds of notifications - I want to be alerted about pertinent weather, not news. Even with the news push notifications turned off...I still get them. So I'll be trying a different app for weather.

Like this weather info, but no details for the next week. Pro is not in the cards, as it says price could change... to what?? SO many ads it's ridiculous. This used to be our "go to" weather app, but looking for something better. Also, you can only save a few cities at a time & have to re-search . Wish the Weather Channel app had not changed so radically!

Okay I see the purpose for the ads someone has to pay for the APP. But if you click on one of the links in your app changing the language to something I don't know to close the ad isn't going to help you. I guess if I don't understand which button to click I might accidentally download what you want me to. That doesn't look good for the weather channel. I'm going to remember that and I don't trust you anymore. It's greedy and underhanded and definitely feels purposeful. keeps happening Not click
