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.
Mpoints slashed. Ads multiply. Not a bad app, but if all you need is the weather, there are others equally as good with fewer ads. If you are looking for a way to earn Mpoints, look elsewhere as well. You now have to spend all day on this app to get any worthwhile number of points. Comments, Weather Channel?
farewell, Weather Channel Why change the radar? Much slower now and not nearly as detailed. Still has a ton of data hungry videos and ads. Looking for a better weather app. It's changed too much over the years. Too bad they never go back when they screw up a good app. Said goodbye to USA Today and Yahoo fantasy sports already this year so why not say farewell to my favorite weather app. You were good once, Weather Channel.
Glitchy, data stealing and becoming useless. Not only do your ads cover vital information on warning pages but since the last update, your maps are nearly useless, glitchy and when pinpointing, the app shuts down altogether! Weather Channel..what has happened to you?! Looking into other apps now.
Don't like the new radar This was my goto weather app. Always accurate(buffalo ny). Why did you change the radar? It worked perfectly as it was. Now I have to set radar layer every time I want to view the map. It was so easy to use before the update. I really want my old map back.
Nice Radar Update I like that new radar update! It seems to perform faster on my phone and is more responsive. Its definitely faster at reloading the radar after I zoom in/out. I do agree with others that the precipitation on the radar seems less detailed. It looks blurry or something. Overall, I think this is one of the better updates I've seen from TWC in a while.
Cluttered; no humidity forecast A key feature, future Doppler radar, is buried under ads & clutter. (Intellicast was better, but dropped future loop, so I'm trying Storm by Weather Underground). And unlike the Web version, this app has no hourly humidity forecast, a big minus for planning outdoor exercise. Point system was annoying, zeroed out after reinstall, so I ignore it.
