Terrible app. Weather is very inaccurate. While watching the 4 warn weather on tv the app doesn't even come close to being the same. Its slow and the ads are terrible. Also trying to watch the weather forecast through the app its always 12 hours behind. Was shocked just now that it said 2 hours ago! Then it stopped 15 seconds into it and nothing. Ive used this app for a couple years now and since the last update this past year i dont wanna even give it 1 star.

I was forced to update the app because it was no longer loading. HORRIBLE update: the graphics look cheap and the layout is confusing and difficult to navigate. Also, the radar is more simplistic, runs too fast, and now requires multiple steps to switch from past to future displays. Then there are the intrusion ads. Unfortunately, I'll now have to look for another weather app.

Terrible! It's way too busy, showing too many things other than weather, and also in its graphic design. The "title" page - light blue with white icons - is the most attractive page in it, but looks squished, like a movie projected in the wrong ratio. The app offers an edit option for one's home location, but wouldn't let me enter my address or zip code or even the "use map" option provided! Also, the previous version just disappeared without any alert that a new version was coming.
