What is this?
I used to use this app all the time. Then it kinda slowed down on loading. During recent severe weather, it didn’t want to load at all. I haven’t had WiFi since I moved a month prior to this weather. So I uninstalled it and downloaded it again. Now it doesn’t help AT ALL to predict future forecast on the radar like the previous version I had. It used to show me future cells that might pop up which is detrimental to see how my job is going to go with cutting labor etc. it now just has a past, past + future, and future option. Anything that has future on it is absolutely useless. I have to check the past weather cells just to predict MYSELF if it’s going to screw me over and rain. The “hourly” option will say 40-60% chance but the future prediction on radar always gave me a rough idea if the cell traveling from the west was going to actually hit or not. I’m disappointed. I always liked the KY3 app because it’s local and felt more accurate than the weather channel but now I don’t know what to do or use.
Change app icon
The app icon looks nothing like a weather app and I don’t care for it. Also lose the scare verbiage about the first alert. Rain and snow happen. That’s the point of the app. Alert should be saved for something seriously wrong. I just have been turned off by the app ever since it majorly changed in looks.
Developer support pages no longer exist
Where are all these users supposed to go with their issues? “App support” link here in the App Store takes users to a page on KY3s website that no longer exists. Isn’t this against the terms of service??? Also - WAYYYY too many notifications. I want to be notified when there are watches and warnings for my area, not the mold count or the lake levels. I get as many as three an hour sometimes when there is no severe weather in the area. Finally - new radar colors are not useful. Red is no longer a tornado warning? Why the change?
This app has been my go to for a long time! With the new update, I have to constantly delete and download the app again for it to work. When I tap the app to open it, it takes forever to load, if it does at all. It is stuck on the “KY3 storm team” start up page and will not load. After deleting and reinstalling, I’ve noticed the location services aren’t working well either, after allowing it to know my location, it will put me somewhere else. I have the X, so I know it’s not my software a full bars LTE, so it’s definitely this app. Stop making commercials for this until it’s useful again.
I use it all of the time
I don’t know why it is crashing for other people it might be my phone because I have an iPhone or maybe your connection but this is the only app I can get to load on one bar my go to app for weather always I don’t know if those where just old and they have fixed it but without this app I wouldn’t even know if a tornado was above my head
Ky3 weather app What happened??
Like many of the other reviewers I too have depended on this app especially during severe weather. But now it won’t load or the map won’t show what it’s supposed to or it just crashes. I delete and reinstall about once a week or more. I like having a local weather app. But I don’t think the developers or ky3 realize that I, and I’m sure many others, depend on this app during severe weather like knowing if there are tornado warnings in my area or other severe weather watches and warnings. I have deleted and reinstalled for the last time. I’ll just have to find something else.
What happened to this app?
I used this app 3-5 times a day to check my local weather and radar. Ever since the last update it takes forever to load and gets stuck on the “KY3 stormteam” landing page. About 75% of the time I get an error message that the network failed to connect even when I have full service or even on my own home WiFi. Whatever the developers did to this app they ruined it! I can’t use it anymore. Put it back like it was so it will at least work!! I see I am not the only person having this problem! Fix it please!
This used to be my go-to app but no more
I don’t know what happened, I used to use this app daily. But it now takes forever to load, I get a “network failed to connect” notice frequently, etc. Thought maybe I just needed to reinstall the app but in reading the other reviews it seems like this isn’t an issue with just my phone. I can’t recommend it until they correct these issues. I have had to start using other weather apps that work consistently.
I use this app often and since the last update, it crashes when I open it. If I persist, it will open, but only in portrait. If I have the screen lock on in landscape, I have to turn it off. Then the app reorients. Loading anything on it, takes forever. It used to be quite snappy, but not more. Also the pop up notifications work, but if I click on them, it tries to open the app and crashes. Please see what you can do to sort this out. I am still using IOS version 10.3.3. Once this is fixed, I will revise my rating.
Use to be a better app
I have used this app for years but the past three weeks when I open the app it takes a few minutes to load. I tried deleting it and reinstalling it and lots of other fixes and none of them worked. Then I came back to the App Store to see many are having problems since the “bugs” were fixed. Hope they are able to get them fixed so I can update my review. I will use the national weather service until then.
Bring back the KY3 radar
This app use to be perfect. Never had an issue with it and use it 100% as the only weather app on my phone. Since they changed the radar from the actual local radar my radar will not load. At all. WiFi or not. Will not load. Then I came to realize that when they “changed” the radar it’s the Weather Channel radar. Bring it back local. The app has ads out the wazoo, bring back the radar that actually works.
New update is terrible
Afraid you “fixed” something that wasn’t broken. We shouldn’t have to scroll past a video and an ad or two to get the current temp and radar. Previous version had a couple flaws but it worked well. This is a downgrade, for sure. Also, can you please do something about the alert sounds? Ron’s voice out of nowhere or an equally startling siren, or little blips you barely hear are not great choices, in my opinion.
Ads stop forecast videos
I truly want to give 5 stars. The ads have increased in length and the video forecast and alerts are not playing. The ads now are commercial and not the nonprofit community support ads that used to play. Please restore what should and can be a great app.
Ok app, but...
It’s an ok app, but the thing that frustrates me the most is the fact that the hourly forecast (projected lows and highs) never matches the daily forecast. It’s like they are prepared by two different people who don’t talk to each other. So any time I check the hourly and daily forecast, I don’t believe either one and figure the truth is somewhere in the middle. Too bad, because otherwise it could be a decent app.
Update takes this app backwards
I’ve had this app for several years, however, this update is terrible. The app is slow to load. I miss the larger opening map and I hate having to scroll by the video to read the information I need. Additionally, the video sometimes starts playing automatically and I don’t need this when I’m trying to save data. Please consider going back to the old look and function.
