Change is not always good
I deleted your app because it was too busy, too hard to read. I liked the old clear concise app. Today I tried it again, it’s better. But I still liked the old one better.
GO BACK TO THE OLD VERSION!!!
When are you going to pay attention to all of the negative reviews and change the app back to the older version everyone loved? Can’t you see these negative ratings? None of the little fixes solve the problems. This app is too busy and too convoluted with junk we don’t need! Users are busy and want to see the 7-day forecast and radar! Could it be you can’t change it until the ad programs you sold expire? And what good are ads that get less eyeballs? Why else wouldn’t you change it back NOW? Luckily I told my husband not to update the app on his phone or the iPad. He picked up my phone the day after the tornadoes and said he couldn’t make heads or tails out of it! I never use it on my phone now. Change this app back to the clear, concise, colorful, uncluttered version it once way and quite monkeying around with something that people hate and doesn’t work!!!!!!!!
Among many problems with this new app version, one that sticks out to me is having to watch video to get a “watch” or “warning.” I have a child that is extremely disturbed by storms and it is not convenient to watch a video to find out if we are in a watch or warning. It also highly disturbs me that after a major weather catastrophe like we just had, I would have to try to dodge ads to even see the current conditions for my area. (After all, even that is very difficult to locate on this new app design.) I will give the design one more chance, but I will also be comparing other designs to this because a change maybe necessary. You can’t wait for change to happen that never does when it can mean life or death.
Changing an app is not always an improvement. Several issues have ruined this app. 1) It is too busy, too many categories, too many videos (who wants to have to stop what they’re doing to watch a video?) 2) Ads...the biggest pain for all app users. Too many ads, often splashed right over content, very distracting, and the user is forced to endure the ads by accepting them or go through an Ad Preference exercise (meaning you WILL see distracting ads, like it or not) 3) Weather warnings seem to have disappeared, did not happen at all during a recent tornado warning 4) An app is supposed to make things easier and streamlined, a simpler user experience. This app fails in that category.
Crashes & locks, ads block display
This app is poorly designed. If you open the app and then open it again after a couple of hours, it crashes with the message “Error unable to display data, check your wifi settings”. I have verified with many of my colleagues that they too are receiving the same message on both ipads and iphones when connected to wifi. There are too many large ads that obscure viewing the information on the screen. I could not even see the hourly forecast because of a huge Quest eseries rider ad. Surely WHIO has enough revenue to make an ad free app. As it stands, there are much better ad free weather apps to use.
After the constant push to download the WHIO weather app I decided to try it. I have to say that this is the most annoying app I’ve ever worked with. This weekend I was barraged with notifications of severe thunderstorm warnings and tornado watches and warnings. Unfortunately, I have no idea where all this was. When I tried to see the watch or warning, I got a video commercial and that was it. Why can I just read where the warning is? I don’t have time or the inclination to watch a video. This app is way to busy and not useful for me. Time to try something else.
App will not open
I love channel 7! I trust their meteorologists! But my channel 7 app will not open. It had been but since last evening (Jan. 21) it will not open. All my other apps seem to be ok and the other functions of my phone seem to be ok. Anyone else having issues? Thank you!
Passed up on this app
Deleted it a while back. If the old app comes back or something better that is not a royal pain or frustrating, please announce it on T.V. Didn’t know there were so many horrible reviews as I thought it was just me. I was ready to come back until I read the reviews. Back to the App Store to try something else as my newest app (A major one) didn’t work out either due to location updating only once every 3 hours and taking way too long to open.
Weather War bugs Don’t Work
Overall the app seemed decent enough until the tornadoes a few days ago. That’s when I found out that the weather alerts don’t work. It doesn’t matter how many locations I add, the app claims that I don’t have any locations set so I cannot turn on weather alerts. Since I have turned off the built in weather app, I didn’t get any warnings. Good thing I was watching TV at my friends house that night or I never would have known what was heading toward us.
Change Back to the old app
The alerts are not very loud with this new voice announcement it’s terrible please change back to the old alert at least I could hear the voice announcement across the room. This new one it’s been changed to every since the Tornados hit on Memorial Day is the worst ever not good considering we have Tornado watches tonight and this boring monotone voice doesn’t catch your attention I had to download a different weather app. Please Fix this
Severe weather alerts leave a lot to be desired
The color coding on the weather alerts is terrible. I shouldn’t have to compare and contrast in a moment of urgency to determine watch vs warning vs t-storm vs tornado. Nor should I have to sit through an ad before can view the “tornado warning in your area” video. And please help me understand why I can’t tap a warning box on the radar and actually read the information about the warning.
Change it back!!
I have used this app daily for years and loved it, up until recently when you updated it. Half the time it doesn’t work, it’s constantly crashing, and was much easier to navigate and understand before. I also used to receive notifications every time it rained, stormed etc. and now I don’t get anything. I wish more than anything you’d change back to how it was!
No tornado warning alert
We just had a tornado warning where I live, but even though my push notifications are all active and everything in the settings is set up fine, I never received any tornado warning alert through the app. Luckily I heard the sirens and saw it on channel 7 when I turned the TV on, but I'm about to move a little further out into the country, so I'm not going to be able to rely on any siren.
Go back to the old app
This one freezes up, is too awkward to understand, and consistently tell me there are WiFi issues when everything else on my phone is working just fine. I used the old app for several years and loved it. I am now going to delete this app and go to weather channel app. I didn’t want to have to do it but I give up.
Whio weather app
The new interface is less friendly. It’s cluttered. The new version of the app is “buggy” and frequently generates location errors. This upgrade has given me a reason to look for a better app. I’d take the old version over this. I’m confident something better is out there since the old version was better.
