Pretty much just a plain Jane app. Nothing really to wow me. Always displays blank forecasts. Have to reboot the app to see the forecast. When I hit play on the radar to see it in motion, the map goes blank.

Nice, but one major flaw

I like the WRAL weather app, and use it frequently. The information and various maps (both static and up to 8-hour moving history) are very good. The one (huge) drawback? If you allow it to use location services, location services stays on 24/7, not just when the app is open. Unforgivable, both from a privacy viewpoint and from a battery life viewpoint.

Obtrusive ads make it unusable

The type and frequency of ads just keep getting worse and worse. I know you guys have to make a buck, but man. Id pay for a subscription to get rid of this. At least on the desktop I can use AdBlock software. Use another stations app

WRAL Weather App Is Better

I really like the updated app now. I like it pinpoints your location. Its a good app and hope it stays good. Thank you WRAL.

Performance, hourly all bad

The radar gets stuck after pushing to review the history, runs for maybe 5 seconds then stops...dont blame my internet. Hourly is just lazy pulling from your internet format, the old app was actually mobile, this version not so much.


This version acts like a Beta version, still in development and testing. It crashes constantly, and puts up icons that cannot be deleted.

New Version

The new version, out 5/30/15 is HORRIBLE! Why did they mess with a good thing? The old version was detailed and user friendly. This new one is TERRIBLE and doesnt offer all the info the older version did. Time to look for a better weather app!
