Used to be great prior to 2017 season. I'm in the path of a cat 4 and threat level is 0. Been 0 all year, never changed. Spaghetti models are all gone, info in general is outdated. I would say almost completely useless for anyone who really needs to track storms for work purposes like I do or even just their own safety.
Predictive forecasting. Shows possible & most likely track of Hurricane Irma & is already tracking Jose. Updates as per your settings. Bad reviews are because users did not personalise settings & actually spend more than 5 min working with app. Garbage in, garbage out
Not only is this app not up to date, it is putting people's lives in danger and should either be updated regularly or removed. Many of the maps are out of date and show no watches, no warnings, and no storms, all the while one of the most dangerous Atlantic hurricanes bear down on some of the most vulnerable communities in the western hemisphere. People are depending on you for lifesaving information and it is your duty not to lead them astray. It is up to the developers to fix these issues or remove the application from the store, or Google should remove it for them. Otherwise there will be blood on both Google's, and the developers hands.
I Live in a hurricane prone area of Florida and I want to know when a tropical storm is forming. This app is horrible for that. Currently Cat 3 hurricane Irma is in the Atlantic and it is no where in this app. I'm only finding remnants of Harvey. Apparently the app uses your location and doesn't display anything until you are a target in the cone of uncertainty. All of the Atlantic maps currently say "No Active Storms" and Irma is moving towards the U.S. I don't recall if this is a free app, if it isn't then don't waste your money on it.
I liked being able to see the current map outline for hurricane Irma, however, the threat level stayed at 0 the entire time. Horribly inaccurate as millions of people lost power and had minor damage. Wouldn't consider that zero threat.
Nice app lots of good info. The pwople who are saying the app is showing a threat level 0, the threat level will change once it is presicted to make landfall in an area nit when it is still out at sea. Duh!
