"Love this product!!"

August 03, 2012  |  By NMlost

 |  Version: The Weather Channel Desktop 6

Pros

This is exactly what I want in a weather app. Very minimal profile until I need it, then all the info and maps I want. I absolutely loath TWC's App for Windows... but that's another story.

Cons

The ad are annoying, but worth putting up with them for the app.

 |  Version: The Weather Channel Desktop 6

Pros

Very accurate. Helps me plan my activities

Cons

I could do without the add-ons. Dealio toolbar, Znobi (not sure on the spelling of this or what it does) totally screwed up my internet. Had to uninstall them in order to access web sites.

"THIS VERSION SIMPLY DOES NOT WORK 99% OF THE TIME."

September 08, 2008  |  By GAYLAKY

 |  Version: The Weather Channel Desktop 6

Pros

IF THE PRODUCT WORKED, THE COLOR CHANGES, LOCATION CHANGES WOULD ALL BE GREAT. THE INTERACTIVE MAP IS GREAT.

Cons

I DON'T LIKE THIS PRODUCT SIMPLY BECAUSE I CAN'T GET IT TO WORK. I HAVE TRYED ALL THE FIXES AND REDOWNLOADING AND IT SIMPLY WILL NOT WORK.

Summary

UN TIL THIS PRODUCT IS FIXED IT IS A WASTE OF TIME TO TRY AND DOWNLOAD THE OLDER VERSION WAS MUCH BETTER, ALL THE SUJESTIONS TO FIX IT DOES NOT WORK. I HAVE USED THE OLDER VERSION FOR YEARS, AND NO PROBLEMS. THIS VERSION STILL HAS A LOT OF BUGS IN IT THEY NEED TO WORK OUT. ONCE IT BEGINS TO WORK AGAIN I WILL BE GLAD TO DOWNLOAD IT AGAIN.
