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.

You'd think that a tech company like IBM buying the weather channel would result in a better app, but unfortunately that's not the case. Even on my brand new top of the line Samsung phone this app is horribly slow switching between screens, and even worse loading the radar. It's really embarrassing for IBM that they screwed the app up this bad. Used to be good and at least usable. Been like this for a long time now and seems to just get worse. At least the ads load fast. Priorities...

Notifications haven't worked in months! I constantly check to ensure that they are set correctly, but the only notification I ever receive is for news/marketing. The actual reason I have this app installed is for rain/lightning/etc. alerts, but NONE of the actual weather alerts have worked in a very long time. Even when I only have the weather alerts enabled I still only get news notifications, WHICH ARE DISABLED, so this is apparently just a marketing app now... My wife has the same problem!
