    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.. 👍😀👍 Full Review

    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. Full Review

    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 ?? Full Review

    The information on the App is great, however, lately, looking at the radar and other features, such as videos, allergy information, or the cold and flu reports makes the app crash. Very annoying. Some of the ads are very inappropriate, hinting strongly at pornography. SERIOUSLY?!? Your people need to be more diligent in choosing the ads for the app. Children do look at this app. Full Review

    Good app for weather. Contains too much liberal, slanted, bias news and sometimes fake or debunked news. I suggest sticking with the weather and stay out of politics! Full Review

    Love the app, but the current weather view can be off. It can be snowing and the app says it's raining or clear. Or it could be pouring rain and it says clear skies or sunny. That needs to be fine tuned. Otherwise, I love all the information. Full Review

    Very nice app. I use it every day to plan for the day's weather. It can seem like there are too many videos. I really like the maps, forecast and current temp, wind, precipitation. Sometimes it's hard to get to just those things. Full Review

    The people running this app have the ability to speak with the gods and find out exactly how the weather will be. But be careful! For these gods can be tricksters, and will sometimes lie for reasons unknown. Overall, good app. Full Review

    Hardly ever failed on forecasting the weather, anywhere in the world, even for long term. Very reliable! The only down part is the fact that you can't manually change the default location. Full Review

    Love this app! Let's me know what to expect when/where I'm traveling so I can make arrangements. If it's sunny, I take my shades... If it' windy, I take my surfboard... If it's snowing, I take my snowboard... If it's raining, I dance... You get the picture. Full Review

    It's a good app. Gives you every thing you need to know currently and a great look at what the weather will be like in the next few days. The radar is good, but have seen better, but I do like the future part of the radar. It is also nice to search other cities. Full Review

    I use the radar map every day to help me understand the weather for the day and to allow me to plan the day more effectively. I like having the current temperature posted in the upper left hand corner of my home page. The weather bulletins are very timely and useful. The push announcement s are all very useful. Full Review

    Crashes my tablet every time I try to watch a video. About 1 minute in, every time since last update. Whole tablet freezes and shuts down. Also how about an ad free version? There's too god dam many of them. I want weather, not 3 pages of ads. My phone screen is only so big, and there's an ad on every god dam page. Even the map. How much money u guys need? Turned off video autoplay, but they decided to keep the video ads autoplaying. Really great, super close to giving up using this app. The website is an ad monster and click bait farm now. Why can't they just give us the information like Wikipedia. You guys seriously suck. Full Review

    **After the most recent update 11/15/2017, my on-going temp notification still doesn't stay on. I open the app before bed and it appears but by the time my alarm goes off in the morning it disappears again. The widget did keep the current temp updated this time though. If there were a way to report bugs to the developers through the app I would do it through there instead of through the app store review. Not sure if there is a more appropriate way to do one that's not apparent to me or wether there just isn't another way.*** On-going notification for temp disappears after a day or so and only comes back if the app is opened. When you tap feedback within the app it takes you to the feedback and help page of the website and if you can't find what help you're needing there is still no way I've found to leave actual feedback or contact. The feedback link on the help and feedback site just returns you to the first help page so that's why I'm writing it in here. The app is good and normally dependable before the notification problem started. Full Review
