    Time for another try, 2 years on. Beautiful 5-day forecast for the UK when I live in France, plus a suggestion that I heat my house to 23°C to be "comfortable"... See you again in a couple of years when you understand that the world is a bit bigger and more diverse than you think. I just reinstalled this for the first time in a year. All other apps and sites say rain, it's pouring down outside. TWC says sunny all day. Good bye Full Review

    No one can accurately tell the weather EVERY day, but The Weather Channel gets it as much as anybody else, if not more. And The Weather Channel reaches all points of the globe. TWC has so many interesting topics. Just click on a story on the home page, and it takes you to the line up topics on the next page. Another plus is that it gives you the current temperature automatically on the top left corner of the phone. It simply gives you more information. If you work in the weather, like delivering newspapers as I did - for 20 years, it is a valuable asset. THANK YOU TWC. Full Review

    The app is very good at providing weather information and is accurate. The videos are very interesting ; however, if I want to watch a bunch of d**m commercials I would just turn on the television. A commercial before every video and most of the time the same commercial over and over and over......... I think it's time to uninstall this app. I can get my weather from the NOAA.GOV Web page with NO commercials. Full Review

    The app has improved immensely over time, especially the radar and the hourly forecast features. I would prefer me detailed forecasts in the daily forecasts, but the information is essentially the same as you get on the local on the eights TV forecast. Managing locations for the app to remember does not seem to cross devices. Not a fan of the points thing. The app is still slightly different for tablets than it is for phones. Full Review

    Stopped working! App logged me out and when I tried to log in it denied my Google account. I clicked forgot password and it failed to send the email several times! I uninstalled and reinstalled the app only to be disappointed. This was my go to weather app...the alerts and real time temp notifications.... Oh well bye Weather Channel! Full Review

    Edit 1/3/18: Deducting a star. An ad before every video now? Great idea to turn users away! I love The Weather Channel, have been a fan for many, MANY years! Indispensable for travel planning and severe weather information. Would be enthusiastic 5 stars if not for the disappointing widgets available for current version. Please bring back the one that displayed the current temp with today's & tomorrow"s forecast. NOT helpful on the widget: the time, the current weather and the location. I already know those things!

    I cannot swipe right or left between different locations. Why is it possible to do it on my other devices but not on my new smartphone? Epic fail. Besides that, I like humidity forecast... You see: I am highly motivated to switch to another app. Full Review

    This is a good weather app but sometimes it kicks you off when looking at the weather and closes. Does not work for all phone types as it kept freezing on my husbands phone. However, may just be a phone issue. The app is easy to use and accurate even though weather is hard to predict. All in all not bad. Full Review

    Won't maintain profile settings for any of my towns. .. ie when I set Aurora, IL it consistently sets to Aurora, CO. - also dislike ads and the fact that you can only set 3 locations - and that you have to label them one of the 3 labels provided. Full Review

    The app keeps putting me in another city way off from where I live. I live near New Orleans which is the bottom right of the state. It keeps saying I'm in Shreveport top left of the state. I fight with it to update. It corrects and the less than an hour later it changes again Full Review

    Ann Bowser Published date: December 30, 2017

    Works well. I wish you had precipitation totals. I can't find them. Every time I click on the videos on bottom of cite the app crashes/closes. Everything else work fine, all the other videos work fine. Update , I reinstalled the app and the videos still won't play. However, the app does not crash when I try to play them. Got any fixes or advice? Full Review

    The radar map is very slow at times and there are features on their website like the daily and nightly forecast maps that aren't available on the mobile app. Overall though, the forecasts are accurate and i love being able to see future radar of the entire globe, neat. Full Review

    Peter Du Published date: December 17, 2017

    This app is completely bloated up with garbage making it slow. I want to be able to access my daily forecast, hourly forecast, and other locations quickly. Instead, this app will force you to scroll through ads and stupid articles that has nothing to do with the forecast in your region. Full Review

    Allan Langille Published date: January 5, 2018

    This, and THE WEATHER NETWORK, have the nicest interfaces, but precipitation forecasting accuracy goes to THE WEATHER CHANNEL whose accuracy remains unchallenged by any weather forecasting service. MY ONLY PROBLEM IS THE INABILITY TO SET A DEFAULT RADAR "LAYER", WHICH ,"TWC" HAS UNFORTUNATELY SET TO "CLOUD". Full Review

    This app matches the weather so accurately. I want to dress according to the cold weather and with a different weather app I got so frustrated.Got very sick a month ago. All because I dressed incorrectly and got to sweating in 9° weather not with my weather channel.Even got my son to switch his weather app. Full Review

    Mostly reliable and fairly accurate.... That is WHEN IT ISN'T FREEZING AND CRASHING. If the technological aspects were efficient, I'd rate it higher. Anybody know of a decent weather app that doesn't crash? Full Review

    Bloated and buggy... closes itself often... used to be a better app, but now even the click-bait videos won't run. That's pretty bad when even the bloat is too bloated. The widget still works, and that's the only reason why i still use this app. Full Review

    PLEASE have less advertising in your vid section, it's been a plaguing problem for a long while now ,,, 15 to 30 second ads to watch a 20 second or minute long video IS COMPLETELY UNACCEPTABLE! Blatant Greed doesn't suit you , and has turned your once daily used app to a rarely used app. If it wasn't for radar I'd uninstall,,,,,Or just make a paid pro version that is AD-less so i/we all can stop being angry at this once great app....

    I would give a higher rating if I had the option to READ the weather. A bigger problem is that I have video auto play turned off, but ads still play and can't be stopped - very poor implementation! Full Review

    I would have given this app a 4 or 5 star in the past. But since end of November of 2017 this app would just stop working. Just now, Jan 15, 2018 I was watching a video about ocean levels and in the middle of the video the app shuts off/stops working. I'm also not getting my current lication or even local area weather readings. Please fix this. Full Review

    I've had this app for awhile now. It's been great until recently. The time is never correct. I would have to open the app and refresh. Now the time is never right and refreshing doesn't work. Can someone at TWC app give me a fix for this? I may delete it and get another weather app if there is no fix. Full Review

    It's gotten cluttered. There are way too many videos unrelated to the forecast, or even weather! It's all click bait. I understand that ads help keep apps free, but it's getting trashy. I used to hold the Weather Channel in such high regard. Major disappointment. Full Review
