I used this app at least once a day since I first saw it advertised on KY3. I have told several people that it is the best app on the market. Not now! Since the update the graphics are no longer easy to read and it's not near as simple to use. One of the great things about the app before the update was how similar it looked to what I saw on the news broadcast every night. Please don't change your graphics on TV to this garbage. If the app doesn't change soon then I'm going to have to delete it and use the Weather Channel app or Yahoo Weather permanently since that's what I've been using since the update. DONT FIX IT IF IT ISNT BROKE!!!!!!!
The previous version of this app was far superior. This newly redesigned app has tiny bland icons on a vertical forecast layout....while the previous version had colorful easily readable graphics in a nice horizontal 10 day(2x5) rectangular display. Please PLEASE bring that back. I REALLY miss it! KY3 weather was always my go to app for local weather info and I'd use it all day everyday, but now I've been forced to abandon it in favor of the (previously) inferior Weather Channel app. If I'd known how badly they ruined this app I'd never have upgraded it. Please listen to these comments and fix this. I miss the previous version!
This app is disappointing to say the least. I have 4 weather apps. There have been several occasions where 3 of the national weather apps have forecasted rain. The KY3 app won't even have rain on the radar. I'll look out my window and it'll be raining! This morning, the other 3 apps reported freezing rain, snow or a wintery mix. KY3 reported rain. Low and behold, it was currently snowing. I honestly don't know who controls how weather is forecasted at KY3. The weather people should move to San Diego where the weather is the same almost everyday and can't possibly be completely wrong in forecasting.
I don't like this app. At all. Last night there was a bad storm and I had no electricity, so I couldn't check the TV or the app on my iPod. My siblings were extremely scared and then I find out the next morning that there had been a tornado warning and I didn't know?! Way to go KY3, way to seriously scare someone. To make this app better I think you should make it to where you don't have to use Internet to access it. It could save many more lives, just saying. But until that happens, I'm giving this app a bad review due to last night.
This app is ok but unlike everyone else I won't rate it 4 or 5 stars. In fact 3 is pushing it for me. Even when I set my home location when you reopen it, it always defaults to Springfield, MO. That's a huge coding opportunity in my book. If you delete the favorites it will always bring them back. That's annoying. I only want to see my home town. The ads are very annoying. And like others said its KSPR weather. The app is ok and has potential but frankly the weather channel max app does a better job.
I find this to be a very good weather app. I like how you are able to pinpoint your location on the weather map for more accurate reports. I was able to drag, and pinpoint right on top of my house. I don't understand all the problems that the other reviewer's seem to have with this app as I have not had any issues at all with my iPhone six. I also use the (weather underground) app which is very good. I will keep both as they both have good features, and I can toggle back-and-forth using each one.
I cannot make this work. Have had it for years but the upgrade will not hold. I have the 7 version, upgraded, did the settings, and it all shows the proper upgrade but when I turn it off and turn it back on, it has reverted to the old version. I click on upgrade, it goes to Open, then it is correct until I turn it off. When I turn it back on it has reverted to old version again.
There's nothing to review! After the latest "bug fix" the app refuses to run. I just get a full screen logo and it immediately dies. 100% of the time. Before the "fix", it would load and then die about 80% of the time. iOS 8.1.3 on iPhone 6, multiple networks. Ready to just delete the app. UPDATE 2/20: I quit. It's a total waste of time. Deleted!!
I love the app, but I also love reading the KY3 storm team discussion on the web. I see the start of the discussion under the "Blog" section; however, when I click on it to read in entirety, it redirects to a different page without the storm team's discussion. If I could read the entire discussion, it would be the best weather app!!!!
It crashes all the time. Plus is inaccurate more than half the time. It was raining Saturday, but the app showed no rain. Then Sunday, it showed the storms from Saturday passing through. Also, it keeps asking me to set my location.....it should know where I am....gps hello!?! Dropped this one and went to KOLR. It works and is accurate
