    So I just dove in and spent the 4 bucks to get the ad-free version. I'm even on Wifi and it's taking forever to load. Current location is on and it's not doing a damn thing. I'm getting a little pissed I paid all this money for it and it's not even working, anyone else having this trouble or are the servers down or whatever?

    My wife and I have the free one and we have the same problems also. It won't load at all since the last update.

    The free version worked fine. I'm just pissed because I spent five bucks to get a cleaner design/ad free and now it's not working.

    I'd be pissed also, and I think 4.00 is too much. I'm just mad because ever since the 1 update (before this last one) I had problems with it and now the current update I get nothing.
    What's the difference between the 2?

    I did this and nothing. Since it's like a "new" app, I put in my zip code for 1 of the locations and it won't even find it.
    I downloaded the Weather Bug and it works fine, so I'll use that until TWC app gets fixed.

    WOW a full restore! So how does one go on getting a refund on an app that doesn't work?
    Try the Weather Bug, it's not bad and it works! They have a free and the non-free is only $.99

    I think the server is having a problem, I have the free one and it won't load either.

    I downloaded weather bug and I actually like it better now since TWC is down. I might even get the $.99 one now. You guys should try that since TWC is down, you might like it.

    yea, both my wife and I have the free app and both are not working currently, I know its not location specific because she is in SLC currently and I am back in MN.

    hopefully it will be back up and running soon...

    Weather Channel is horribly off on temps. Fizz Weather is soo much better.

    The servers are down. I emailed them on the from the about page...

    Dear Jim C,

    The Weather Channel download applications are experiencing difficulty connecting
    with our data servers. Our engineers are aware of the situation and are working
    to address the issue.

    Thank you for your patience as we work though these issues.

    The Weather Channel Mobile Team
    Jmm

    Well that's good to know. I just tried using MAX twice and works like a charm again. The UI is a great change from the free to paid version, looks amazing.
