Seems like every time this app updates, which isn't very often, the user interface become less friendly. First, let me say I commend you for trying to add features in order to compete with some of the more feature-rich weather apps out there. But that's about as good as it gets. It opens to a home screen with only a 2-day forecast (current day & next day). The old UI opened to the current temperature and the weekly forecast. We now have to click on the daily forecast to get to the weekly. An extra step that we didn't have before. On the old UI, we could click a day within the weekly forecast to see the hourly forecast. Now we have to choose the hourly option from the menu or go back to the homepage and click the hourly icon. Again, more steps that we didn't have before. But the worst update of all is the new radar map. YOU DO NOT NEED SATELLITE VIEW FOR A WEATHER RADAR MAP! It's useless. Every major weather app that provides radar either uses the regular map view or gives you the option between map & satellite views. Please update this to go back to map view or give us the choice. Satellite view is slower to load and for those conscious about data usage, it uses more data. Details of satellite view aren't necessary for radar. I love the sleek interface of the Yahoo Weather app, but I refuse to use it because they too only allow for satellite view on their radar map. The weekly forecast screen is cluttered and difficult to follow. So much crammed in with tiny font. All in all, making users do more to access simple features is never a good thing. Overall I find it much more confusing than the old version. And bring back regular map view for radar.
The way this ap works is the first listing and image is a over all forecast. Weather past included. Which could be sunny and then when you go to the upcoming eight hours or hourly reading could be thunderstorms. Seems to me if there is eight hours of rain than the first forecast you come upon should state it is raining. Don't really care the ten hours prior to the eight it was clear out. I tried to explain to fox, they were nice and polite in their response, but they did not understand past weather had little effect on why I use a weather ap. I use weather bug now. In the present!
I LOVE my Fox2 app! I look at it everyday to stay up on the news. I would give it 5 stars. However, lately I can't get through reading news stories without being interrupted MULTIPLE times by the pop-up ads. It's extremely annoying!!! I thought at first I was accidentally hitting the ads to make them come up. But lately I've been keeping my hands off the screen as much as possible and ensuring I wasn't touching the ads when I scroll. But that doesn't matter. They pop-up when I'm not even touching my screen. I will give the app 5 stars if you PLEASE STOP THE POP-UP ADS!!!!! PLEASE!!
I think this gives the best weather info but it crashes constantly. Sometimes it tales 5 or 6 tries to get it to open. When there's severe weather, I don't want to have to keep trying to get it to open. Also the front page with the temp seems to only update once an hour. I have no issues with finding cities and towns all over the country, even keeping them as favorites to be able to check on my friends when they are under severe weather. This would be the best weather app if it would not crash and update the temp more often.
I do see people complaining about not being able to change location. Instead of ridicule them how about let them know.... The way to change your location is a little white circle with the i icon in it by the sunrise sunset on the bottom left of the details for the day. I can only give it three stars right now as I just got it today and I too had a problem with the location till I figured it out. Good luck
I think they made this app in the 90's Seams like thar is no updates very slow & u must down load every other week fox 2 new is best on tv not on this out dated app . It is the wether machine that's y they never no w.t.f is going on . I have reported this problem 2 them more than 10 times still nothing ch 5 works fine or the weather channel don't wast your mb gb :)
The previous version was much better, loaded quicker and was not a resource hog it is now. I hope I don't need to check this if I only have Edge service where I'm at. Also notice that it drains on the battery if you have just closed it and not taken out of memory. (Double circle and then hold icon to get X to completely close it. Please bring back old version!!!!
Not impressed with this update! Did any of the designers of this app update decide to take their device outside in the sun to see if there are contrast issues. Not helpful for soccer moms sitting out in the middle of green fields trying to see if rain is coming. At least give us the option to turn off the satellite to use a regular map.
App is great when it works...10% of the time. 90% of the time it can't determine GPS location and asks for a new place to search for. It also doesn't like to follow the settings sometimes to start you on the proper screen. Might make you want to go back to that pos KSDK weather app...
All the reasons I used this app are gone. Now I'm left to search for one that will give me the features that used to be there. Hour by hour is gone. Easy access to radar, warnings etc are gone. Now they want me to "upgrade" for $9.99?? No thanks. Not impressed.
