This app offers nothing one can't get for free online. You cannot control the animations and cycle through the time periods which can allow you to see exactly when a heavy rain burst (for example) will occur. It offers practically nothing in the way of wind event tracking. Unbeliefvably, it doesn NOT provide NWS storm watches and warnings. At this writing our area is under a wind warning (highest alert level) for high winds and heavy rain and flooding. And of course in typical fashion the Apple App store would not issue a refund when I tried to claim one. I would issue a "no stars" for this if one was available.
i honestlylike it makes me think of the wether channel during the 2000s era i did fine with the location finder and everything else would reccomend to older mac users like mine and in general
i do like this app, but the information is so vastly incorrect that it cancels ANY good it might have. Too bad, because this really could be something with more reliability of data. I would caution anyone who uses this app to double check their conditions and NOT rely on the data contained within. If the situations change and the data becomes reliable? I will change this rating. Otherwise? There are others much better out there.
No local radar information. When it first boots up, I get a quick look at local, then it closes and I get a cover that says “ Information not available now". When will it be available? I’ve had it for a week and no change. It refers me to “Radar Status Message” in upper right - no such thing. No controls, no help. Did I download the app others are raving about or something else?
I teach weather and I was looking for something inexpensive to give live imagery and real-time radar data. To the point — the application has no controls (e.g., zoom, elapse time, specific location, …). It is nothing more than fixed-size image data with limited resolution and limited viewing areas. The application is more Eye Candy than a tool to view radar information. Save your money and go to any of the free weather websites such as Wunderground or Intellicast to get real-time high-resolution radar images. I’m sorry, but I cannot see how this application can be useful, especially since it crashed 3 times when first using it — it is a good example of you get what you pay for.
It does not work on my High Sierra system. It crashes everytime I try to launch it. Their customer support has not replied to me. I have reached out to apple for a cancellation and refund. I wish I had read the the other reviews ahead of clicking buy.
This App crashes whenever I try to open it. It may have worked prior to OS High Sierra, but it definitely does not now.
The moment you maximize the window, the map scews out of proportion. This app is designed to run small and was not made to go in to full screen. Its basically a feed from public info. If you pinch to zoom in to the map, everything pixelates; because the source maps are low res. I thought this was going to be noaa’s vector based imaging, but far from it; I regret buying this…
User interace straight out of the 90’s. Sigh….why is weather so hard to get? There is not one good looking, powerful app out there.
Application purports to be more than it is most notably a hurricane tracker - a hurricane locator maybe but no way a tracker.
