When it comes to broadcast weather, ABC 33/40 is unquestionably the best in our area, so when I downloaded this app I was expecting the same standard of excellence, not the WSI stock app being used by the joke that passes for a meteorologist at WBRC! To add insult to injury, WBRC does a better job of keeping their video forecast up to date. The 33/40 weather team consistently out performs everyone else in the market, including NWS. I want their forecast via the web, not WSI's. How hard could it be to routinely post the video forecasts and the radar map that includes watch highlights, warning polygons, and lightning strikes that you already prepare for 33.2? Finally, and perhaps most important you need to add a live stream here anytime you interrupt normal programming for a weather emergency. I wouldn't expect this much from anyone else, but I expect nothing less from ABC 33/40.
I had issues with it uploading with previous versions of iOS, but it is getting worse with ios8. It doesn't want to upload and now it is constantly saying it can't determine my location from the GPS. My other apps have no problem with that. I've almost stopped using it and rely on my IMAP weather app instead. At this point, if something doesn't change considering deleting, it's just taking up space! Very dissatisfied. Update: just deleted this app! Tired of it crashing 75% of the time when you try to open it! Waste of data! I downloaded so I could keep up with dangerous weather conditions and if you can't open it it doesn't do you any good! Rotten app!
SO much better than the national weather app I had before. During the last storm I was frantically trying to find a live stream radar to view on my phone while we were in our underground basement. I was so glad to hear James Spann say something about the app during the most recent storm. I downloaded it immediately! The regular ABC 33/40 app has a great traffic map showing slow-ups and accident locations so I got it as well!
I love James Spann, but if he approved this "updated" app then he needs his head checked!! It's hard as heck to read, light blue with tiny WHITE font?? The 10day outlook all squashed together in the SAME TINY WHITE FONT!! Where the heck did the blog go? What about the send weather pics? HORRIBLE HORRIBLE IHORRIBLE!!!!! Please at the minimum fix the font back to black atleast it would stand out more!!
Being someone who hasn't lived in the ABC 3340 viewing area in some years I was so happy to find this app. I trust James Spann and the team to warn us of severe and non threatening storm systems as they move though Alabama. This is great for those of us slightly out of the viewer range, ie Dekalb County. ** The new update is amazing, and finally fits my iphone 5's screen. Thanks ABC 33/40!!**
Great features like storm tracks to show you direction of storm and a future animated radar to show you a futuristic outlook where and what time a storm may approach your location. Also gives warnings and watches and videos. Best of all features the world famous Mr. James Spann! If he can't predict it no one can!
Love the app & would have given 5 stars, however, since the last update the standard green rain clouds blend in almost completely with the green of the map. Not sure if it was the ABC 33/40 update or iPhone update that messed it up... Still love the app & ABC 33/40 weather team though!
Love the app. I had it on my droid it worked great. Now on my iPhone the location doesn't work right. I put in my city removed riverchase and use the current location a lot but it keeps goin to riverchase although it's not listed and doesn't refresh to current location. Please fix
This is really a downgrade from the previous version. Readability is very poor (blue background with small white fonts), too much information crammed onto the home screen to make it useful, and no access to the blog. If nothing else, bring back access to the blog.
I thought that the app would be great since it was ABC 33/40. Wrong. App is way too slow to load. Times out and closes at times. Even using wifi. Weather underground or accuweater iPhone formatted websites or webapps are still your best bet.
