Best Simple Radar App Reliable precision radar I count on during severe weather and activity planning. Just radar without extra clutter. Very small file download. Always smooth animation without image skips, showing direction and speed. The map can be dragged around to change location, also zoomed in/out. Looks like AccuWeather map. For tracking, I wish I could have the yellow arrows instead of fans, it be less cluttered.
Raindar! I wanted to thank you for developing such a fantastic app, Raindar is awesome! If possible in the next release; a button to pause the animation a the most recent frame and also a menu item to refresh the map would be greatly appreciated. It's difficult to view the characteristics of a current storm when the radar is moving and sometimes the image becomes outdated frequently and must be restarted to load the new one. Feel free to consider a donate app as well, I'd gladly toss a few bucks your way.
I did love it, but... ****** Old review... I'm an amateur weather nerd, and this app allows me to track storm cells. You can click on each cell and get even more info. Great free app, keep up the good work. Galaxy nexus ****** update. For a while now it will restart my phone as soon as I tap the icon to load the app. Dunno what that is about but it's not good.

UPDATE: I hope this is still Accurate, hasn't been updated in years. Did developer abandon this? Good accurate radar, nice UI. Some people complain it's a data hog, it's nothing given today's apps. I have a nexus 7 with 32GB internal memory, maybe you need to upgrade your devices and get with the times - dump the crickets.
Even though there are more detailed radar apps, this one is just right for me because it is light and super fast. Two things needed: a refresh button and a widget. Update: It's been 3 years since this was updated, but it's still my go to app for radar. No it doesn't have storm tracks or lightning strikes etc..., but it's clear and fast, exactly what I need.
Phone Nexus 6P, stock, 6.0.1 App has stopped displaying stormtracks. I've uninstalled/reinstalled the app, turned the setting for it on and off numerous times and no change. They still work on my wife's Nexus 6. That was one of the best features about Raindar. I've had this app for a long time. Emailed the developer and never got a reply. I still use it but really miss the stormtrack feature.
