I love this app so much. I's much better than anything on free weather sites, and the app store. I live in Taiwan and I love to be outdoors. It's very hard to predict the constantly changing wet weather and this app gives me a good picture about what to expect, daily and hourly. Also VERY helpful for tracking typhoons and tropical storms forming, coming, changing tracks etc. For whatever reason most English language weather sites ignore typhoon news in my region or label them "thunderstorms"

This is the number one best free weather radar app I've ever used. Not being harassed to subscribe no ads so far, the data is accurate and the app run smoothly with no bugs or glitches. On top of all that the app doesn't require collecting personal data it has no need for like all of the other big weather apps that need 10 plus permissions to view all your personal data on your device.

Hi Owen, sadly I have no interest in your personal life :-) The only analytics I collect is on app usage, e.g., what data people are using, which helps with app design stuff. Thanks for the review. Cheers, Duane.

Thanks for the hard work you've put into developing this app. I've used the free version for over two years now and must say, it is very unique and once one gets their arms around it, becomes easy to use. Recently, I needed to use the help menu but it had disappeared from the free version (just a blank screen on my Android 10). So, to support your efforts I upgraded to Silver and voila, the help menu was back along with many more features. Again, thanks for this outstanding app! Easy 5 stars.

Hi, Yes, when you come from a typical weather app, there seems to be a steep learning curve but in reality it's actually easy. It' just that you're not familiar. Hmmm, I doubt non-pro vs pro would've hidden the help section. Might be the internet gods were out to lunch. Thanks for the support - much appreciated. It keeps me going. Cheers, Duane.
