Not a fan of the new version for several reasons and I used to love the old version except for speed of loading map... radar map only shows thru current activity and goes so fast you miss it if you blink. I used to use the hourly forecast all the time and don't like the new one at all. Zero stars if it would let me. Go back to something simpler and useful, please! Do we really need to see all the daily forecast history? I uninstalled wivb and found wgrz which is similar to old wivb app.

This app provides accurate local weather, but the updated version is much worse than the previous version! Most importantly it's missing the up-to-date forecast videos! There are way too many ads, which I could live with since it's a free app, but the ads get in the way and are very distracting. Even if it didn't have ads the app is not user friendly and is hard to navigate. Please bring back the attributes from the previous version(s)!

This has always been my goto weather app. I rated it 5 stars. Now I'm changing it to 1 and deleting the app. This update has made it terrible. It's cluttered and looks awful and confusing hard to navigate. Giant ad at the top and more pop up ads. Long load time now. It was a good run well it lasted. But like most apps all good things come to an end when developers try to "improve" things and make them worse when the app was perfect the way it was. If it ain't broke don't fix it.
