  • Formerly great

    This app is a shadow of its former self. My review from years ago: This is exactly what I was looking for in a weather radar app. Simple and good.
  • Such a sad day

    By Buyloss
    Wow I used to love this app so much. I am so very upset by this update. This is one of the few apps I have ever paid for and this update makes me just want to uninstall it. What a shame. Update 2018/10/14 Came back to see if any improvement had been made since the terrible update a year or so ago. It appears the developers have listened and, while not the same, has improved a lot and I have incorporated back as my go to radar app. Very helpful for hurricane season and tracking storms.
  • Slow

    By jmr176
    This app Used to be fast and easy to use now takes forever for the radar to start moving
  • Slow to non-existent!

    By wishing for actual radar
    Horrible service, no actual service provided
  • Keep family safe

    I watch this closely during bad weather to keep my family safe.
  • Error fetching weather data

    By raincntry
    Where once this was a good app, now I only get an error message when I try to get weather data. Without that data the app is literally worthless.
  • Good to know

    By Batep
    It is great to know what’s coming ahead of time.
  • Used to be good. Takes too long to load

    By jiimyy
    This app is useless because it takes to long to load.
  • Layerings

    Until you turn on & off all the different layers- You have not seen the weather
