I agree with all these negative reviews, but this "upgrade" is so bad it deserves to be piled on. Taking the efficient app and making it inefficient should be a capital crime in the software world. Deleted this now-maddening app.

When upgrades are downgrades
update- I still want a refund!
I have been using other apps. I still want a refund. Very disappointed with your mega Corp. Your forecasts were usually wrong 90% of the time. 90% chance of rain usually meant no rain, or you would change it ever other hour. I think Ill spend my money on the Farmers Almanac. At least Ill have better odds knowing the forecast. (past post) I paid for this app and now you are removing it??? What a bunch of crap. I want my money back. Why did I have to buy it! What a scam. WeatherMax is max-fraud. Is this a joke? Have you seen the reviews?
Its a shame...
The Weather Channel Max app with zero ads and a great experience was certainly worth the one-time $4.99 purchase price. Now TWC wants us to pay an annual subscription to remove the ad clutter they insisted on injecting into the modern app? Sure, I understand the developers need a paycheck and all that good stuff, but thats why we bought the Max app in the first place; we already paid for a great experience. An annual subscription fee is outrageous! You messed up, TWC.
This new version is awful. I am now checking other sites to get additional information, like My Radar. Who came up with this new version? Did he/she get a bonus? It should be taken back. Its not easy to look at, and cheap looking. Very disappointing. Fix it. Bring the old one back.
What you need
This is all the weather info you need in a quick intuitive app. I have the cities I travel between all programmed in and can see the varying weather with a simple side scroll. Thanks!
Im not even going to ask what is going on with TWC Max. To me its okay to release new versions but, please, make previous versions available.
Just trying to scare people for ratings.
So many people have already harpooned this sick Whale that I wont bother going into my distaste for the directions the Weather Channel is going.
