Dec ‘17 update takes three step backwards
For an APP that’s used (especially) in cases of severe weather and warnings- look for one that is more streamlined and with more immediate access. Have used and depended on this app on both an iPad and iPhones for several years until this most recent update. The forecasts are reliable and as accurate as current science allows, however the presentation in this upgrade render it too fraught with inconvenience for the time spent to open and load. * For mobile use and cellular data, the additional video feed load is superfluous and should be an optional item. Arkansas is a rural state with peaks and valleys and is oftentimes spotty between towers even on the interstates. For commuters having to travel in less populated areas, checking the forecast right before going off-grid now requires forethought and cannot be left to the last minute. ** Even on fiber optic high speed it takes longer to load for home use— going to the website has been quicker. *** the cloud background behind the forecast renders white text illegible. NOTE: this has been fixed in more recent updates. **** too many advertisers per screen, I would pay for this APP if there were NO sponsors and it were streamlined.
Decent app BUT...
The intensely annoying problem with this app is that it makes you wait approximately 8 seconds looking at the splash/logo screen before it opens. The wait time goes down to 5 seconds if the app is already in memory. It is a relatively small app at 40mb, so the long wait times are by design. The irony is this “feature” exists in an area with more than its share of turbulent weather where every second counts. It has decent layout and content once you finally get to it. I deleted this app in favor of a more responsive solution.
Fix it please
I have been using this app for several years now and the only dissatisfying this has been that it takes a while to load, up until now. It now crashes upon opening it. I depend on this app for accurate forecasts and in cases of severe weather. FIX IT PLEASE
Issues finding network
Even when every other app is on the Internet this app hen first opened has problems find the internet. The only way to fix is to force close the app. This is getting to be a pain.
Can’t read forecast after last update
I like this app because it is simple and easy to find the information I need. The latest update looks nice but the cloud background is the same color as most of the numbers and makes the forecast much harder or sometimes impossible to read.
Extremely slow to load. The forecast videos aren’t timely so why put them on here? Still difficult to read font with the cloud background. KATVWX tells us to download it, but it would help to fix the issues. Two stars for improved radar. I have another weather app for backup.
App takes entirely too long to load. Most times my phone will time out and lock before the app even opens. I like that the weather is typically more accurate and I can get alerts pushed to my phone, but it is no help if the thing won’t even open and load for me to see where a storm is.
This is no longer the best in state app radar opens little rock can't quickly ck other states as I plan for a trip GK
White cloud background too light
The latest upgrade has bright white clouds on the screen which makes reading much more difficult. I’ve used this app for quite a while but with this change I’m searching for something better. More legible.
Last update is a mess
I used to use the app all the time but this last update has made it impossible to read. The background and the text are the same colors. Did anyone proof this before releasing it? I will be using weatherbug from now on
Messed it up!
It was a great app before the last update. Now It is hard to see with the font and background combo. Also can’t find the full screen radar button. Fix it quick or I’ll stay using Channel 16’s weather app.
Who decided to make the Thunderstorm watches and warnings RED? Tornadoes warnings are common here. Your alerts radar is unreadable to be able to tell which is which. Fire them and bring Ned back if you can’t make this user friendly like it was a few months ago.
Y'all made a decent app terrible. Looking at the long-term forecast cannot see temperatures because of the clouds in the background. There is no contrast to make it visible. You can't put white numbers on top of white clouds and expect people to be able to read it. Ridiculous
Channel 7 weather
This new update makes it very hard to read ! Please change something. Always found this app very useful but now it takes forever to check daily forecasts.
Never ending updates
Seems as if the app is in a never ending loop of updates? Update app. Then update app again and again and again...repeat!
