Update: follow me now works, thanks. Update: STILL NOT WORKING. Hello? Fox, you there? Hello? Original: Location is not working correctly. Follow me doesn't work. It just says finding current location but never finds it. All permissions including location are allowed but it still doesn't work. Was a great app for years but I travel a lot and need the app to follow me. Using Galaxy S9+

I love this weather app, except for the fact that the "follow me" feature just suddenly quit working. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the app twice, and it still won't work. I hager to go in and manually select my location everywhere I go. It's driving me crazy.

I've loaded it on my moto e, but the city names on the radar screen are very blurry. Is there an adjustment for it? It works fine on my other phones.

Worst weather app out there. Terrible predictions and at the last minute. Get a new weather person

When it works it's good, but freezes a lot now. Have used this app for years and really rely on it, but the past few weeks, it's not working well. It freezes when opened and you can't scroll or choose any of the options, ie maps, daily, hourly info. The "follow me" location doesn't actually follow me. Stays locked onto a previous location, or randomly chooses some other location. Have deleted and re-installed several times. Hopefully bugs will get fixed, as I haven't found a better app yet.

The update has messed the app up. I have used this app since 2013 and it worked very well. I used it when I travel and locally to determine the location of heavy rain. There is a chance for icy conditions today and when i look at the map it is clear. The future cast works but the past and current precipitation does not. I have adjusted the transperancy and still does not work. I had to install the Wfaa app to get the current weather. That should not the the case.

Up until four days ago I thought this app was really good. Now, all I get is the current temperature/conditions, no hourly, no 10 day. Nothing but current temp and condition. Tried uninstall/reinstall, tried the suggestions on the app. No change. Not happy! ...oh, I do get a nearly full page ad on my screen. No weather, but a nice, BIG ad!

The latest couple of updates make the app pretty much useless. The interactive map no longer loads properly, adding custom locations is no longer intuitive, and "Pinpointing" refuses to place the pin where I put it. I travel for work often, and used to rely on this app for weather reports at my destinations. Please re-release the older version from 2018/2019.

Can. R. Jan 22, 2022     

The follow me option never works. The pop up says locating and it says the area in the top but if you tap the screen it goes back to the last place you checked.

Mic. W. Apr 3, 2022     

OK overall but rain forecasts are misleading. When looking at the daily forecast it shows chances of rain for daytime only. So if there's 100% chance of rain tomorrow night but only a slight chance during the day, the 10 day forecast will only show the slight chance. This is a problem.

Previous versions that once worked on my phone do not allow Follow Me function to work either. Makes me think the last Android O/S update changed something.

Lar. D. Apr 29, 2022     

My favorite weather app. Easy to use. Very informative.

Ken. May 23, 2020     

Have used this app since first published and enjoyed it lots. A recent update has rendered it useless. Weather data will no longer load. Numerous uninstalls and reinstalls yield same performance. FYI, an app provided by Ktvt using the same platform, behaves in exactly the same manner. IOS versions not affected by these issues.

Joh. C. Apr 7, 2022     

Don't repeat this, but I owe the WAPP people an apology. The app is the best weather app in our area. ☆☆☆☆☆ 5 stars.

Jef. D. Mar 29, 2022     

They are horrible at updating it. What you see on their TV weather is often completely different than the wapp

Gre. B. Jun 15, 2019     

loved it when I first installed years ago, each update has been a step backward starting with changing from Google maps to mapbox with less detail now you've stuck the add smack dab in the middle of the screen, well you can do what you want it's your app, and I can do what I want so I'm moving on good luck!

Used to tell you what the colors on the map meant, now it just shows ads in that spot. Who needs to know temperature, windspeed, or any other ranges mean when you can see socks are on sale or you can buy a car from your bathroom?

Bro. B. Oct 18, 2021     

Everytime I try to watch the news on the app it freezes after 2 seconds and then I have to refresh it all the time and half the time it has the black screen with the little arrow and when it stops freezing the screen pops up for commercial break and I have completely missed out on what happened.the weather map doesn't work half the time.

Jas. B. Jul 5, 2021     

Have used app for a long time. It's been very reliable until recently. I actually came here to see if there was an update I missed. However, reading comments I can see I am not only one. App loads really slow, the map doesn't follow me anymore even when I pick follow me. When I finally get to where I am, I am looking at clouds out my window and nothing is showing up on radar. Someone has messed this app up. Maybe reset to older starting place.

Ran. R. Feb 17, 2022     

Spinning with msg: Getting current location. Please wait. I've updated, uninstalled and reinstalled. Getting the same msg since update.

Apr. A. Feb 4, 2021     

Since last update the notification widget constantly shows as blank. No temp just a blank spot where the temp goes. If you open the app, it'll update the widget, but later it goes back to being blank. Keeps asking for location permission which I giving it. About to delete and go with another app. Also giving my location as Paris France. This app is screwy.

Best weather app on the market even over the ones you have to pay for

ric. j. Oct 28, 2021     

I have used this app for years because I love the video forecast as I work outside everyday. But now...the video daily forecast does not play. Only the ad plays, nothing more. It's very frustrating. I enjoy Fox 4 but I'm having to use channel 5 instead. Please fix this so I can come back to the Fox 4 WAPP!! PS..I HAVE TRIED UNINSTALLING AND REINSTALLING...STILL DOESNT PLAY.

I do not like the weather map. It goes to far into the future. I want the old one back. I can never get a good idea about the day. Not good to use when planning your day. 😔😡

RD. F. Jul 5, 2020     

Cannot rely on this during severe weather. The radar update is very slow - sometimes freezes - perhaps due to higher demands (this is when people most need to know). Second, radar update is somewhat behind - 5 to 10 mins? Watching tv news is much closer to realtime - which negates the value of this app during storms. 2 stars because normal times it works well enough - but then any other weather app would be fine and maybe less intrusive ads too. Will try others

Kel. H. May 23, 2020     

Used to be a great app, but since the last update it is soooooo slow or just doesn't work at all. Used to love the radar, it was fast and up to date. They need to go back to the old version. Have even deleted and reloaded, twice. Just doesn't work. Shameful.

m. j. Nov 22, 2020     

For some reason the app has not worked on my phone for the last month, I have uninstalled it and reinstalled it numerous times and the screen shows 0 temp and blank for the other readings and nothing on the map or the weekly temps. I have also shut my phone down, left it 5-10 minutes and then turned it back on to get any carrier updates and reboot my phone but that has had no effect either.

Hea. H. Mar 22, 2021     

My app is frozen. It loads the first page but I can't scroll it and when I tap hourly or daily below it doesn't take me to the other page. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling, force stop, clear cache, clear data and nothing has worked! Please fix. I depend on this app so much!!

BMX. M. Apr 23, 2020     

Amazing app. I downloaded it and gave me a severe weather alert Doppler radar had tracked some severe weather near me detailing the movement and speed. Gave me 20 minutes to prepare. Nothing bad happened but it sure was nice that it was so accurate. I live in the middle of nowhere so no one covers my area on the local news

Ken. R. May 14, 2021     

Why do you put white writing on top of white cloud background? Please fix. This app sucks for easy to read information. There are better and easier to read weather apps than this one. Update 4.28.20. Some new performances update and now it can't display the weather I keep getting 0 degrees when it is near 80+f. This App sucks. Two levels of advertisements, useless videos, no options to not display. I just want a weather app that does only the weather. 5/13/2021 Still sucks.
