New radar map is very confusing and not friendly.
Put it back, making incremental changes. Add LONGER loop time. ISO bars.
The new WunderMap is really slow and I don't like the animation scale at the bottom... really confusing. Would like to revert to the old WunderMaps.
It appears that the programmers have taken over here. Way to complex for the interface. I'll not renew my subscription for this!
I have been a PAYING consumer of wunderground for years mostly because of the wundermap. This new pile of crap is so confusing and hard to use, I will be rethinking my renewal this spring. Come on guys why did you need to screw up such a good thing? New is NOT always better. Give us back the old one please.
Let's see....a radar map that needs a 7 minute video tutorial. What's wrong with this picture? It sucks.
You have ruined a great product, which was user-friendly and gave me as much info as needed. Now I go elsewhere... simple as that. Put back the old wundermap and stop trying to hold on to your jobs by trying to fix something you have hopelessly messed up. Thanks for nothing!
As a 5+ year user I concur with hjmann. I'm not saying this new interface is a bad thing but it needs to work. I have multiple screens on my desktops and until your change to the website at least one of them had wundermap up and running in full screen mode. Since the change I've been using other weather sites.
Matt, you don't need to do a survey "to make a compelling case, blah, blah, blah,"
Just make the site work. It's as simple as that. I've sort of lost track of how long you've been
trying to make this work and I'm thinking that what you're trying to do is way past your teams coding abilities.
The animation of both Radar and Satellite is terrible! Just make it work!
I'm hoping to compile some video-based WunderMap feedback from experienced users (to make a compelling case for some improvements — seeing is believing).
If you're willing to have a 10-15 minute Skype or Google+ video call to help me pinpoint issues, please fill out this quick survey.
(apologies for cross-posting)
I've been a member for close to 14yrs...mabe i didn't go to college long enough..or I'm too old, that thing is a mess...I've given up on trying to use it
I agree. I've been a user for years but cannot, for the life of me, figure out that realtime map. I think it must have been designed by nerds who may not think a lot about Human Computer Interface design. Get an HCI person to help you out, PLEASE! (and soon!).
Elynema, thanks for the sarcasm.
There are UI issues with the new system that a lot of users feel need to be addressed. It has nothing to do with "not being ready for progress".
Some things are nice and work much better in the new version. Stability is one thing that's been addressed. And load time. But some things are terribly implemented and seem to have been put in place by people more concerned with "looks" rather than "information."
Have to agree - I miss the old maps, they were far more user friendly. have been a subscriber for many years, but this has me looking for a new weather site
Like the old radar map alot better, want it back PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
There I fixed it: http://classic.wunderground.com/wundermap/
Now when your ready for progress, you just get rid of the classic infront of it.
Wow this is not at all what I posted! Thanks for silencing the true thoughts of your paying customers. This paying customer of 5 years has had enough. Good luck W. U.
If you spent as much time developing as you do screening and grossly editing people’s opinions, maybe you wouldn’t be in this situation.
To ease the transition into the new map, we've produced a little walk-through video covering some of the new features.
There's a link on the top bar of the WunderMap (next to the feedback link).
Here's the url:
I don't like the new interface
The new WunderMap is about as user friendly as barbed wire en__a!
I can't either. It's one of the oddest, least successful improvements since New Coke.
