Best Radar App Ever I've had NOAA Hi-Def Radar for both Apple and Android, and it is my absolute go-to weather app. I blows all the others away...pun intended. It provides conditions as recent as 2 minutes and being in Kansas, the storm info feature is invaluable. I don't want all the fancy features of other apps. All I want is the info NOAA provides. This is indispensable to me.
This app is the best and only choice for quality weather monitoring. I have had this app on my iPhone, iPod touch, various Android devices and now on my Nexus. You can toggle between base reflectivity or satellite cloud coverage overlays. You can view these over the map of your choosing, whether you want to just view your local area or a pull out and see the continent. You can choose a map to include city, state and streets, or just go to the hybrid view which is like overlaying real time weather over Google Earth. You can pause or play weather for a past period of time and even change the speed of the playback. Add weather tracks or even lightening strikes. Weather you are concerned citizen wanting to see what weather is coming your way, or a meteorologist attempting to identify possible hook rotation patterns, this is the app you want to use. I am highly pleased and highly recommend this app.
Dissapointed Had this app when I had my iPhones and absolutely loved it. I now have a android based phone and this app stinks. 1st it keeps pointing my home as off the Coast of New England abt 100+ miles. So I uninstalled and re-installed. Still no luck plus I had to buy it this time. $1.99. I have typed in my home address and its bounces me all around a 50+ mile area. I use to depend on this app since I live in a rural area but I wouldn't give you $.02 for this app now. Extremely disappointed.
Very nice!! Downloaded during major thunderstorms. Doesn't show lighting yet on mine. I do like the app though...better than most weather apps.
As good as local news radar Watched closely the winter storm. I was on line of snow and rain, radar showed me on line of snow and rain. Local radar showed snow 10 miles continued below me. Better radar.
Great app I'm a truck driver and being able to just start the app and see at a glance what is around me helps to make decisions as to whether a storm is bad enough I need to find a new route or stop all together. This app does that. Great app for those who drive for a living 4 wheeler or truck.
