"Take the weather with you"

Somewhere over the rainbow...The Weather Channel.

TWC is the most downloaded and most appreciated Weather widget available. It has lots of features and alerts and a great forecasting service. Yes, using TWC app we can answer questions like “What will be the weather in Madrid/Moscow/Milwaukee next week?

Some users reported forceclosing and slowness, and actually we did. But since the last update it seems that forceclosings and crashes have been solved. Likewise, the interface has been improved. Now it’s more intuitive, good-looking and user-friendly. The navigation is easier and faster and the search bar is way more better.
What’s more, the app support more languages (also French and Spanish). It still could be improved in some points, but it has been boosted since the last time we reviewed it.

Maybe it’s a nice day to discover new weather apps. Sun is shining, the weather is sweet...

    Widget does not work. Shows only "0F" and a picture of a thunderstorm, no other data, does not update. Other weather widgets are able to retrieve data.

    It's somewhat accurate. I don't like having the little icon constantly in the notification bar. I have the widget which is more than enough. Please give option to disable toolbar notification. Till then 3 stars. Will uninstall if I find something more customizable.

    I like the new layout. I don't like how much it drains my battery. The follow me feature, doesn't follow me.. My radar map tells me it failed every single time. The ads are a bit intrusive, and they are the same every ad.
