  • One missing piece...

    By Chistat
    Great Radar & Satelite app. Loads quick, has a good 1.5 hour time loop and is clear, easy to zoom, and doesn’t draw a lot of data. Only missing piece to make this a perfect radar app is a combination radar & satellite view which this app doesn’t have.
  • It ok

    The radar is nice. It doesn’t have any hourly predicted forecasts.
  • Good product...

    By Mthom50
    Really like this app. Crisp display, timely, and focused on just what is needed. Would be nice to be able to select time lapse duration (30 min, 1 hr, etc) in settings. Like that you can step image by image through a loop, something that is still absent from a popular expensive paid radar app.
  • Awesome!

    I love this app.
  • Excellent

    By Preston L Howard
    Excellent program. Works smoothly on my iPad 1. More coverage of Latin America would be nice. (That was years ago.) I've used it on my iPad Air for years now. I also have other weather apps but this is still the best.
  • Must have go to app for severe weather

    By Arun
    This is my go to app for severe weather on my iPad. I believe I check this almost twice or thrice day, especially when I am setting out. A very simple app that works reasonably fast.
  • 5 STARS!

  • Always accurate

    I live in north Florida and rely on this app for kayaking - it has always been accurate for me
  • Bare bones but fast, well worth $

    Most all free weather apps are bloated with huge file sizes and are slow to load updated radar. They have too many complicated layers and try to do everything. This little app is only 7 megs whereas other weather apps are between 75 and 150 megs. So it’s fast and does its jjob very well in the radar department. A huge plus for this app is that the map shows practically the entire screen which is a great thing for those who use the smaller iPhones. No more clutter intruding on the precious screen real estate. Today I got to test it extensively in southeast Alabama with numerous pop up thunderstorms and it ALWAYS updated in 5 minutes or less. I must mention that this slim app has added bonus of using very little cellular data when using even aggressively. I use another app for basic weather forecasting etc. that is more detailed in that regard and it’s a free app called BeWeather, together with this simple but great radar app makes for a great combo. Highly recommend.
  • Works Great
