If it ain’t broke don’t fix it
I’ve had this app for 6 years, and I loved it! However, this new update completely changed everything. This app is now terrible and annoying. The new layout is horrible and can be confusing. I wish I could change it back to the previous version because that version was simple, easy to use, and it worked well. Also they encourage you to turn on notifications so you know about severe weather updates in your area, however it also notifies you every time there’s a stupid weather headline (example- Monday morning snow caused 200 crashes on MN roads) and there is no way to turn those off and just receive the important severe weather warnings so you’re constantly getting stupid notifications that are nothing to be concerned about. So after having the app for 6 years, I am seriously considering deleting it. The new update killed this app!
For a while now, I have not been able to go on the radar and view the specific page long details of certain watches or warnings that are issued in cities located around me. I remember I used to be able to do this....wish you’d all bring it back. It was nice to be able to simply go on the app and look at the more in depth details for areas I currently am not in. The only way now I can tap on specific watches or warnings to view the long page of details is only if my GPS indicates that I’m actually within range of whatever specific watch or warning I’m trying to view.
Thank you for bring back the old app!
I originally wrote: I use to like this app but now it comes up to this annoying guy talking about the weather rather than the radar. If I wanted to listen to someone talk I’d turn on the TV. I want the facts. I want the old app back! Thankfully, Fox 9 listened to its audience and has returned to a format that doesn’t force you to watch a video every time you open it.
Not working right
This has been happening for at least 2 months. I use to love this app but now It won’t let me open it the first time. It takes a lot of try’s to get it to turn to landscape. I had to take my iPad in because it was acting slow. When the Apple person looked at my iPad it had the Fox 9 weather app as having problems. I will be looking for another Weather App because this one has too many bugs. Too bad, I really liked this one. This has been going on for 3 months. Please fix it!
Love it. Fair warning.
I love this weather app, these are my favorite meteorologists. I didn’t, however, expect a man’s voice at 4 am telling me there was a winter storm warning as I was in a dead sleep. Once my heart rate came back down and I realized what it was, it was funny. So fair warning, a warning will result in a voice telling you something is wrong instead of a normal alert sound. 😂
Best view of radar and clouds
This app has the best view of radar with clouds pictured too and you don’t have to pay a premium price. It’s free! Some of the well known weather apps do not picture clouds on their maps. On the other weather apps you would think it’s sunny because the maps show no clouds but it’s not sunny it’s very overcast. This app gets it right.
Network problems and other bugs
Frequently we get “Network Error. Failed to connect” message. Probably 1/2 to 3/4 of the time. Have to force close and restart the app to get weather updates. As other people have mentioned, it is slow to transition from portrait to landscape mode, which is the way we nearly always use the iPad. And, sometimes the ad at the bottom of the screen covers up the Home, Hourly! Daily, and Map buttons so you cannot move from screen to screen. Again, have to force close the app and restart.
Love this App
I’ve been using the Fox 9 weather App for a number of years now and love the past and future radar feature. I also like that you can personalize alerts for different weather conditions and set up select cities for easy access. I highly recommend!
Much needed update, has arrived!
This app definitely needed some attention and bug squashing. I was pleasantly surprised with how quickly and smoothly the app loaded and responded. I also appreciated the weather update you can watch as now at the top of the screen. All in all, a much needed update to a widely used app!
Rarely up to date or accurate
So, their website gives you a more accurate weather forecast. Example: we got about 6 inches of snow on Monday. The app said 1-3 possible for the three days leading into the event. The website said 6-8 for two days leading into the event. It wasn’t until about 12 hours before the event that the app updated to match the website. Can’t tell you how much the inaccuracy of this app has cost me in car washes: no rain/snow expected, washes car, 6-8 hours later it rains/snows.
This app is great- when it’s working and that is so rare. I can open it about 50% of the time and the other 50% I’m waiting on a spin. Constant “network errors” or absolutely nothing but a blank Fox 9 screen. Beyond frustrating that it needs to “reopen” every single time I get out and then back in. There’s always a delay, unexpected quit, or just doesn’t work at all. I love the ease of information when it’s working bit that is so rare that I give it one star.
Colors are too strong
I like how the app works, but I live in an area where summer is full of severe weather. This app makes everything look more severe than it is, so it’s really difficult to know when to actually worry. Please tone down the colors and show red only when there is an actual threat.
I hate the new up date, if I want to watch the weather I can turn on tv. Not have to see it the minute I open the weather. I use to be able to have the option to forward them to family members out of town, now I cannot any longer do that. Please put back the older version not this new one. So now that there has been no updates on the weather I am finding another weather station. I hate hate hate this version.
Before the “upgrade”, I could open the app and immediately see the interactive map. Now there’s a stupid home page, put back the map as first seen, or at least give us the option. Also, you stuck those stinking ads right in the middle of the Hourly and Daily content; very annoying! I’m done with this app until they fix it!!
Unable to use consistently after last update
I liked the app better before the last update as well. Now there is a glitch that will not allow it to load and it keeps giving me a error message to check that my wifi is on and airplane mode off. They both are, respectively, but it still will not load.

For the past 3+ weeks my husband and I both cannot get the hourly or daily forcast. Current conditions does not have dewpoint or wind speed. Today I decided to try remove and redownload the app. After deleting I went to the AppStore and could not find the Fox9 weather app at all.

My husband and I both have the fox 9 weather app on our phones and for the last 2 days we cannot get the hourly forecast or the daily forecast. We are wondering if any one else has reported this problem and how we can get it fixed. Thanks!
