Review from A Google User
Some improvements Pros: Nice UI and easy to navigate. Radar is greatly improved and smooth. Excellent source of weather information both current and future. Cons: Ad magnet. The entire "Now" tab is an ad with the current temperature the info presented. You have to click the temp to get further info. So its false advertising given that the three images on the play store of the now tab do not show advertising. It does lag a little.
I've tried to use other weather apps but hands down this is the best weather app there has EVER been or will ever be. This is the only weather app I will ever use, no matter where I am I know the weather at that moment. I'll get a weather alert if it's going to rain/snow or if the allergens are high where I'm at, and this app lets me know before it happens with 98% accurate information. 1000 👍. Oh and the videos that you get to watch with this app are awesome. No matter your interest, there's a video that will make you smile. Thank you Weather Channel for keeping me and my family warm and dry for the last 5 years, your the best! Jeremy D and Family.. 👍😀👍
Enjoy the videos. Like up to date reports. It changes as you go through different cities traveling. I like the feature where you can choose the different types of videos. I really like the animal videos. I also really appreciate that on the videos where people take a risk with their life to get a good video that you usually say that it's not a good thing to do. Even though it might be best video on there your life is worth more than having your video on everyone's phone or on tv. I appreciate the weather alerts. They are helpful especially at night.
It pretty nice. I just don't understand why the push notification gives a different reading than the widget. And also why does the widget say "service not available"? Sometimes I have to remove the widget and replace it for it to give me a reading of my location. Also I'd like to add that TWC should add what the day's high is going to be on the widget.
Great accurate info. Love the hourly and two week forecasts. It would be nice if they included the dates on the two week forecast, though. They always have very interesting videos. My only complaint is there are far too many full length video ads now. And they're usually the same 2 or 3 ads over and over. It's gotten so bad, I don't watch the videos at all anymore. It's disappointing. But since it's not critical to the function of the actual app, I'm only taking off one star. (If you're going to produce and show entertaining videos, don't make it a drag to wach them.) The weather app itself works perfectly. But when the ads and the videos are the same length, why bother?
Would like " feels like" in the hourly forecast. Make temp. in status bar larger. Not liking the new layout, videos should not be on main page. If I want to watch them I will, should not be forced to see them. They keep the page laggy because of the constant loading. Ads I get have to be there but they also make the page laggy and in the way. Atleast put them on the side of the page.
When your forced to watch the SAME damn Lexus commercial 13 times in a row the weather becomes FAR less important. I understand your a business in the end but to force feed the same 15 second( un skippable) add is annoying as hell. Think Weather channel ??
