  • To slow to refresh!

    By Exterior painter
    Always at least 10 minutes behind and won’t refresh when prompted. I have an iPhone SE and have 100 mbs WiFi at my home and the radar displayed is always at least 10 minutes behind. There is a refresh button but when prompted does nothing. I keep my apps updated.
  • Slow to load

  • Read any bad review

    By SirKronor
    All the bad reviews about this app losing features after update are true. I had paid for this app then lost most of the features I paid for.

    Grit app, in the South-central part of the US it can be a life saver. Just wish it updated more frequently. Six to ten minutes between updates during tornado season could be deadly.
  • Very accurate!

  • To be Clearer

    This not an opinion, it’s the truth. Rain alerts were a feature on the discontinued app. STOP LYING!!!!!!! There was lightning notifications on the previous version. I would know. I paid for those once already. Your responses proves my point. Copy and responses show disrespect to customers. Yours is full of lies. You have no respect and regard to current customers. Especially, the ones who had this app since it was created years ago. Asking for us to pay features we already paid for. Your responses mean nothing. They’re nothing but lies. Hiding behind the truth and blame. You people are pathetic liars. This is starting to seem like a typical money making scam. It’s time to take action against these corrupt developers. There is clear evidence of corruption and fraud. I do give 5 stars for your con artist and criminal ability.
  • Sorry I bought it

    By Philpa01
    There is nothing that I see that is of any value unless I needed to know what the weather was in the past. There are plenty of free apps to provide weather forecasts.
  • Despicable creeps

    Just to be CLEARER YOU Got caught, Scam Jocks Still trying to stick you for a subscription, Pay attention or they will stick you up for a subscription and monthly fees. We used to have lightening alerts as part of your purchase price. Reply if you dare, id like to see you dig your way out of this latest Debacle.
  • Great with some glitches

    By Drupa9000
    Love this app when it works as it should. Unfortunately, the radar often does not show and the app must be reloaded a couple times until it builds the animation. The map will sometimes show no clouds / no activity even during a storm. Reloading a couple times will often resolve the glitch and the map shows the appropriate activity. Fix this and the application is five star.
  • Great
