Editors' Review


The Weather Channel provides an incredible amount of content with its multifaceted reporting application. Features, like video streaming, make this program unlike most of its rivals, but you may be unsatisfied because of some design and performance issues.


Variety of resources: Weather can be monitored via a host of tools such as the detailed storm tracking feature that shows where storms will be as well as the travel maps that identify future weather conditions on your driving route. The standard weather reports are thoroughly presented, offering 10-day, daily, and hourly forecasts.

Fun tools: The Weather Channel provides you with a built-in video streaming tool that not only features content from the television channel, but also gives you access to various weather-related news stories worldwide. Weather forecasts also come with an instant sharing option that can be used to send images of weather reporting directly to your friends.


Slow processing: We found The Weather Channel to have a cumbersome feeling during the entirety of our test. Despite receiving performance enhancements in the latest update, this application was still quite slow and crashed once during use.

Pesky notification: The latest version of this application is not able to remove the weather icon from your device's notification bar. Although this does not hinder performance, we found it to be annoying and unnecessary.

Bottom Line

You will not be unhappy with the bountiful amount of reporting offered by The Weather Channel, but its poor usability and pointless notification tool may eventually dissuade you from using this program. To match its competitors, we recommend The Weather Channel add a tool similar to the MinuteCast feature of AccuWeather. Anyone needing detailed and fun weather reporting will find The Weather Channel to be a more than acceptable program.
