    I had originally used the app made for iphone 3gs (yes, a dinosaur, now..) and just upgraded to the new Galaxy S8,.. The Weather Channel app has advanced tremendously, since the version I have been using, and IMHO, is a very useful, and informative piece of software. I enjoy tracking weather conditions around me, and places where family and friends are located, and this app allows me to do this, setting multiple locations, and configuring alerts, live radar feeds, storm tracking, forecasts, even 'lightning strike' alerts,.. If you are in need of, or enjoy having up to date informstion converning 'the weather', I would highly recommend this app. I have not encountered any issues, as of yet. It is highly configurable, and again, all the information "I" have had a need for. Thank you, for an app that actually exceeds, my expectations! Full Review

    I use it every day to check the weather and weather news. Highly in-accurate. Tells me no rain in forecast when it's pouring outside. Does not show severe weather on radar when it's happening outside. Temperatures are pretty accurate I have downloaded another weather app to compare them. I loved The Weather Channel on TV until they were kicked off. Full Review

    So frustrating. Why does the first section on the main screen seem to flip between look ahead forecast and hourly. I want the hourly forecast to stay there. If I wanted the 7 day forecast then I'd go to that section. There seems to be no pattern to it changing it just seems to do it when it wants. Please change so we can set these preferences.

    Per weather forecast last evening, today was supposed to be a sunny day. This morning when I got up the sky was grey and it then started to rain, and the forecast for the rest of the day has changed to rainy. What is the point of having a forecast if it can't even get it right for the next day? Full Review

    Great app. I have it on my PC as well as my android smart phone. I now have TWC app on both of my Android tablets. With the weather as unsettled as it is I want to be able to keep up with the current conditions. If the humidity is very high, I have a hard time breathing, high temperatures and humidity aggravate my COPD. The pollen alert is also a life saver, if the pollen count count is very high, l don't go out unless I have to. Thank you for keeping us updated,informed, and safe. In our crazy world, with the atmosphere questionable, your app. can be and is life saving. Full Review

    I used to love this app. But now, it is terrible. It's all one gigantic advertisement, I never get my notifications (yes, I've set them up), and I've contacted customer support many times with no response. It's a shame, because I love how this app works and looks, but I live in the middle of nowhere and my safety depends on an accurate, team-supported app. Uninstalled. Full Review

    Please update the widgets, the forecast is spot on, but I work in Support and would code the widgets nicer. What a disappointment. Usability and design is terrible. It should be see - through and 4x1 with the full date and weather forecast with location. Current setup is useless. Full Review

    After about 4 or 5 months of use I am experiencing the app shutting down when I try to scroll through. I have reported this several times and it still is not fixed. I have to uninstall and reinstall to correct the problem. I have done this several time and I am about to uninstall and find another weather app if this is not corrected very soon or I need a response from you on how to correct the problem. I will give you 48 hours to respond. Full Review

    I had not tried this app because I thought it was like the others. WOW! I was pleasant surprised to find that the weather app provides everything. I feel like such a dummy for not trying it sooner. This App is truly the BEST! Now I am prepared for changing weather conditions before they happen. Thank you so much. Full Review

    Pretty accurate weather. Like the notifications for threats near me. And love love love the videos but the darn ads that have been inserted before every video frustrates me to the point of not watching. I'd rather pay for the app without add than have to endure them!!! Hence my 4 🌟 rating. Full Review

    The notifications are unbelievablely annoying, I turn them off and they turn themselves back on every single day, I turned on the do not disturb option for the whole day but does nothing. Has turned from a nice useful app into pure annoyance. Full Review

    I've tried a couple of weather apps, but this one by far is the best! I'd rather not have all the ads, but since the app is free, I guess ads are appropriate. I live in rural America & would be lost without it. Keep up the great work! From a happy user in TN. Full Review

    It's overall a good App but yesterday it kept saying it was sunny and it was actually pretty cloudy and I really need to know if it was about to rain to wash in the wash room... but most of the time it works great Full Review

    Please move the clock on the future and past radar tracker map back to just above the moving button at the bottom of the screen where it was b4 the July update ! New placement at the top of the map makes it difficult to track what time things r happening on the screen !!! Eyes have to jump up and down on the screen to see what time weather is changing 🤐 Full Review

    I miss the app from 4 to 5 years ago. Much simpler and user friendly. Videos here are a waste of space and time. Who sits and watches a 15 second ad for every single crummy video ? Full Review

    John Lahmon Published date: August 19, 2017

    Temp for my area is always shown as 5°-15° (both on info bar and when using the app) less than the temp provided by the weather channel on TV and my local news channels. As I write this it reads 64° while the weather channel on TV says 77°. I can live with being a degree or two different but not 13. I've emailed this prior to the update and no changes. How it's fixed or I'm looking for a more reliable source. Full Review

    This app gives me all the info I need for planning outdoor activities (farm work, exercising, hiking, picnics) - and for driving, traveling, etc. I also have several cities saved in my 'favorites' so that I can keep up with weather where my husband & I often travel and where family members live. Because my family is outdoors (away from TV & radio) a lot, the app's special weather alert notifications are very beneficial to me. The pollen & ski reports are also very useful where we live in NC. The onnly downside to the app is having to scroll through lots of ads to get to the real Wx info! Full Review
