Keeps closing The screen, although it has many options to view, is just too busy. Sure, u can turn it off with a finger touch. At first, the app worked well, but it has started force closing and freezing alot. I expected better from an app that I have been using for yrs and paid for the radar part.
There is some considerable overlap in functionality between this app and the much more comprehensive eWeather, also from Elecont. In fact, I had to ask the developer himself what this app has that eWeather is missing. The additional items turn out to be hurricanes, population figures, traffic and a 10 day on-map forecast. All of these are drawn on an animated map, as opposed to the static map provided by eWeather. To his credit, the generous developer responded to my query by offering to unlock this app for free, an offer I gratefully accepted. Like eWeather, the app is idiosyncratic in its design and use of UI elements. It really looks and feels like nothing else; except for eWeather, of course. I also don't really understand why this was built as a separate app from eWeather. It forms a natural extension of that much larger app and its inclusion there would have been the obvious developmental choice. Ease of use of the two apps would also have benefited. That said, this is a nice bonus on top of eWeather. It's by no means essential, but if you can have it for free in addition to eWeather, why not have it?
Doesn't work. When I first downloaded, it worked nicely. Next time I opened it, no info, and said I hadn't purchased yet. So I uninstalled it and re installed. It worked... Until I opened it a couple of days later. Same as before. It doesn't say it costs, what's up? If it won't work, its taking the space of something that will.
This is a further extension of Elecont's eWeather HD app (which is great by the way), so there is overlap in many features. It adds more features in a very animated map which I find helpful. If they could, it would probably be good to add these features into their other app and maybe give it a PRO designation. I do not know if it is possible to have an animated widget that most Android devices could keep up with (I have 2 tablets which could, but I doubt seriously that my other Android devices - older tablets and phones - could hold up under the load). If they could manage to pull that off, then a hybrid app with a semi-static map widget inclusive of all of the information of this app added to all of the features of eWeather HD would be an almost complete package of weather information. It's just a thought, but if you consider what this one is - an animated weather map app with a lot of customization - it is excellent as is.
The Most Comprehensive Weather Apps I have used the weather HD app for a few years and I love it. This Animated Weather Map is wonderful! Everything you need to know in one place. I will continue using elecont apps as their developers pay meticulous attention to what users need in an app. Bravo elecont!
Awesome I have both weather apps from this developer and it is packed with customization. The developer actually gets back with you if you need help. A lot of developers don't. It's worth it.
