    THEY FIXED IT ... HURRAH !!! WAS WRONG TIME ZONE FOR CHATTANOOGA!!! Have reported this many times ... The app mistakenly thought Chattanooga is in the Central Time Zone & said the sun is setting at 4:30PM, at which time it is still shining in the sky!

    Only "Past" time available on radar??? When I look at a radar map it's to see what is coming not what happened an hour ago... very irritating and no way to change the setting. Other than that I had always preferred this weather app over all others... Downloading News Channel 9 now. Have always trusted channel 3's weather forecast most but really tired of not being able to fix the radar map.

  7. Scotty Parker-avatar

    I do not like the new version the GPS was more accurate it actually showed my house now it's showing my location a quarter mile away and when I zoom in to my location it was clear now it's fuzzy I like the old widget better by the way I could have channel 3 news widget in my left hand corner to top the one by two I could put Chattanooga in and get my weather there because what happens up there gets to my home in 20 minutes I've looked at all three stations using the same deleted all 3 stations

  8. Elsa Anna-avatar

    Since the latest update, when I clear all my notifications from my notification bar, it clears the weather status and the only way to get it back is to open the app again. Happens every single time.

  9. Brandon Bowman-avatar

    Radar is very laggy and not that accurate when it comes to the future radar aspect. Other than that it's a decent app when it come to weather related alerts.

    This map is awful. Why doesn't anyone have the hybrid map anymore? This map has very few land marks and not many cities named. This was a great app before they updated it.

    developer look at Atlanta Fox 5 app, no reason this app shouldn't work as well. unless you need to be replaced as developer for this app. does not work with android 10

    Use to be useful for our area (on mountain next to Chattanooga) before the update but now shows weather and temps from the day before for the current day and different forecast for the week than what is shown on the tv news/weather. It's too confusing to be useful now. (Samsung S9+ phone)

    Absolutely love the new update. Wasn't very keen on the last version. Really liked the older version better. This new update on 8/24/18 already is so much better. I like the hourly view and the dropdown day by day is back. Thank you.

  44. superduty4wd-avatar

    Well they brought the state lines back but took away the past radar. Come on WRCB. Design this app like you use it. Fix the radar and I will 4-5 star it.

  45. LEWIS GOINS-avatar

    In the old app I could pin places I wanted to keep track of now when I put in my zip code it is 50+ miles from my house. May find another app unless things change.

    DO NOT INSTALL. I absolutely hate what has been done to this app. I felt older version was reliable. I hate how everything has been rearranged and complicated. I dont see the immediate radar map that I could easily see future weather pattern. I have relied on the old version ever since April 2011 storms. I am looking for different app and will be deleating this one.

  51. Losid RR-avatar

    Severe weather alert? no problem...let me check the radar to assess. all the info i need to implement my emergency plan is just 3 tedious clicks away. added bonus...zoom in and the pesky menu sidebar pushes your radar out of the way. whats the name of this app again? ...hmmm...

  52. A Google user-avatar

    Dislike new version. Want to revert. Only onee overlay available. Can't see clouds and rain at the same time. Must select earthquakes instead of weather info. Can't delete a city once it is in. How the heck did I get LA? I want it gone. Can't remove city I installed on a trip and no longer need. Widget no longer available, that was my favorite part. Do not upgrade to this version!

  53. A Google user-avatar

    New app is terrible. Older version was good. Nighttime low temp forecast is completely wrong on my phone but fine on my wife's slightly older version of the app. Changing to another app.

  54. A Google user-avatar

    As others have said, this used to be the best weather app available, was better than the weather channel. It used to be go to in severe weather, not anymore. The new update is no good. The radar doesn't even work on my android. Come on Paul, David please give us the old app back.

  61. A Google user-avatar

  64. Suzette GB-avatar

    I agree with others that the older app was better; however, this one isn't bad. Channel 3 is usually the most accurate of the weather channels/apps we've used. Wanted to ask, though, where the current temperature/weather status"bar" disappeared to? I depended on that very frequently, so that I didn't have to actually "open" my tablet and your app in order to learn the temperature. I've looked all through this latest update, yet can't find any way to set it up again.

  65. Lee Rogers-avatar

    Update: figured out how to make state lines show. Now, though, the app has been updated and I don't like it nearly as well. I just now had to delete my old version b/c it stopped working. It automatically showed radar when it opened which makes sense b/c this is WRCB RADAR. Also, old app allowed you to drop your pin on your exact spot on the map so you could quickly see if weather was near you. Can't do that with new app. Please fix This has been my "go to" app for weather until now. It takes forever to load and there are no state lines anymore. Please fix! Until then, weather bug for me.

    I hate this new app. I don't want the radar to come up first. I hardly ever looked at the radar! I like the seven-day forecast coming up when I open it. I used to be able to get the information I wanted so quickly... Now I have to go through so many steps to find what I need. I really miss the hourly progression of the weather that used to be so easy to find. Please bring back the old app!

  67. randy Sines-avatar

    I HAVE depended on this app for years, but now it is almost useless since it was updated. It used to update real time in the background. Now it only updates when it is opened. It NO longer has verbal warnings. I wish Paul Barris would have this app changed back a version or two.

  68. Carl Nelson-avatar

    What a shame! This app has gone from the best weather app to the worst. Here are a few disappointing changes: radar won't flip to landscape view, hourly forecast on a slide bar is paltry compared to previous version, couldn't find a way to get temp on notification bar, where are the narrative that used to be in the 7 day forecast? Will be looking for a replacement!

  69. Jenny Wright-avatar

    I loved the old version! My husband's phone updated to this version and we both disliked it. I use this app every day and am very disappointed that I've now been forced to update as well. Please revert to the previous layout!

  70. A Google user-avatar

    This was the best weather app hands down. Now it's horrible. They took away the temperature in the notification bar. I also like the ability to see the days hourly forecast at a glance. Now I have to swipe to get a menu click a button and then I have to slide my finger to get hourly updates. It is pretty but it is not user-friendly. I would rather have it be functional. I guess I will be only hunt for another weather app.

  71. Amy Smith-avatar

    I hate the new update. It so hard to navigate. Also I no longer get my temperature in the notification bar. Half the time the radar doesn't show up.please fix back.

  72. A Google user-avatar

    Don't like the new version. The radar map sucks. Among other things, only allows one overlay at a time. And why is "Home" not the page it starts on? Doesn't make sense. If you want this to be"improved" keep all the other pages of information but put the map BACK THE WAY IT WAS!

  73. A Google user-avatar

    This USED to be my go to app for weather! They update is a HUGE step backwards! I miss the precise hourly precipitation forcast of the previous application! No Temp in the status bar, radar works but a lot of apps do that!

    Do NOT install!!! A tornado hit 2 miles from my house last night. This app did not alert me what so ever. Checked my settings & I am supposed to get severe weather alerts. I find it EXTREMELY dangerous to have an app like this that won't give alerts to dangerous weather conditions.

    I love channel 3, and this WAS my go to app. Not as user friendly. No longer shows sunrise/sunset times. The home screen widget only shows one location. Will not show current location when I go to another town.

  76. Lynn Forehand-avatar

    I loved the old app and channel 3 was all I used. Do not like it now. Uninstalled it. Way to confusing. The old one was so much easier. Can only use 1 overlay at a time. Do not like that.. And do not like the widget. Am trying channel 9. It's almost like the old channel 3.

  77. Randall Corn-avatar

    Used to work fine. About a week ago it stopped getting any info for locations. Sent them a message and basically thanks but still does not work. Deleting from my phone and using someone else. Very dissapointing.

  78. bryan mcdaniel-avatar

    The one star rating is for this new app (it's awful). I gave the old app 5 stars. For everyone who misses the old app: download WDEF Channel 12 app instead. (It's just like the good old WRCB used to be).

  79. A Google user-avatar

    Absolutely hate the new version. I really use to like it. It's ugly! Freezes my Note 8. The guy that designed this app needs to be fired.

  80. Brad-avatar

    The update is horrible. Everyone I talk to about it hates the updated version. We are all going to uninstall and find a different weather app.

  81. A Google user-avatar

    I used to really like the older version but have now uninstalled this one. Sure wish they would revert to the old one and I would reinstall it.

  82. A Google user-avatar

    Don't like the new update does not show temperature in the status bar it's also harder to read then before. You don't have to make it look fancy to make it better

    I don't know who had the bright idea to change the layout, but they should have never suggested it. Channel 9's is now far superior due to their map on the home screen. I understand the move made to a more general overview of the weather, but I often want to see a map when I first log in... I don't want to search.

    I do not like how when you open it that it doesnt show the Rader thats what i want to be able to see so that way i know where the rain and clouds are and this new update doesnt let me see that or show the temperature in my statusbar anymore and thats one thing i really miss i to wish they would go back to the old version

  88. Brandon T-avatar

    Ask for gps a lot unlike the version before. Very annoying change it back Update this app no longer can load any weather data..

  89. Evan Prater-avatar

    No more temperature in notification plus all the other issues people are listing in here. Bring back the temp feature and fix the other problems and this will be the best weather app again.

  90. Kim Bohannon-avatar

    I hate this new version. It force closes continually on my Android phone and the radar won't work there is no temperature in the status bar I want you to go back to the old version it worked much better

  91. Robert Lee-avatar

    Everyone on here in Atlanta ar sayigthis is the best app around. During a tornado warning on April 3, 2017, we got exact location of where it was. Everyone else app just said tornado warning. If you have this app and the Red Cross Emergency app, you need nothing else.

  92. Denise Nantt-avatar

    The new update is terrible! The radar only works a fraction of the times I try to use it. It has become very user UNFRIENDLY.

    For several weeks now, this app has had a major bug that renders it useless. It won't display any forecast information at all. This used to be my go-to waether app, but now it's just taking up space on my phone.
