So far good app So far it's a an accurate radar app. The UI is simple enough for even a noobie to understand. While notifications aren't necessary, a couple additions would place this radar arguably at the top. First, a location icon indicating exact location if using GPS. Second, if there was a severe warned county it would be awesome to see said county outlined. Other apps have frills such as direction of the storm. But that's not necessary as we should assume one can determine that just watching its animation.
Nice Good graphical display and user interface, the radar data is at least as up to date and accurate as what I see on local TV stations, but without the wait. The app could use some improvement with location... When its raining and im indoors, i usually cant get a gps lock, so the app doesnt know where i am. It would be nice to store locations, and/or to be able to manually key them in.... Often radar data obscures the map. A star or arrow or something to indicate the location on the map would be useful for the same reason. It was free, and ive seen no ads, and its not a datahog.
Pretty Accurate... Its a great app to look at but there is one issue. I don't know if I haven't found it yet but this app could really use a location statues. The radar always leads to Southern Florida when I live in Southern Indiana. I'm starting to get tired of scrolling up and finally finding where I am. But other than that, this app is the best one I've found!
Sharp & smooth Has sharp smooth radar not the blocky type I see on most radar apps. Simple satellite or street view. The bad - doesn't differentiate between rain snow and ice. I just uninstalled weather channel app cauz latest update filled it full of ads. No ads at the bottom of this app... Yet.
Great app!!!! Consider yourself lucky because I dont leave comments for just anyone. But this is a very straight forward app. Very nice HD display and map overlay view. Would be nice if it had some settings to like keep some of the downloaded overlays in cache so when you move the map around it woun`t have to load it all again. And another feature to keep auto play while you move the map around. ... anyway some food for thought. But other words a great non ad supported, non spamming, wx radar app!!! GREAT JOB!!
Does nothing. These people writing reviews don't even know what real time is. It's not real time. Doesn't even show movement. Everything is just imposed on the map, and you have to figure out which way the storms, etc are moving. Duh?
