I have a retirement home for old iPads and I give them jobs to do. One is to display a continuous weather radar loop. I don’t know exactly how old these iPads are but they have the old pre-lightning cables and run 9.3.5. This chore was previously accomplished by an app I won’t name but is the same as a domestic terrorist organization. Apparently marketing was all on vacation the day they chose a name. Anyway, recently they quit serving up the data for the app. I looked for every possible app that would still install and run on 9.3.5 but they were all really primitive and/or crashed and/or had obnoxious ads. Then somehow this one popped up as recommended and claimed to run on 9.3.5. I took a huge risk because there was no trial version but I ponied up the ten bones and it paid off. This app works great on my senior iPad and hasn’t crashed once. No ads! There are subscriptions but they’re not required for the basic features that I need. It’s not nagging me for anything. So far it just sits there, dependably displaying a radar loop, 24/7, no ads, no nags, just doing its job.
Please add a way to change the radar color tables also make this free make some features free please!!! Anyway good app!!!!
Not working correctly on iPad, please fix (just see a tiny portion rendered on TV). Also when you stop screen mirroring the city name font size is too large.
I paid money for this app and I regret it. The radar is nothing special. In fact it only shows you the past 30 minutes or so. It is also very regional. If you are looking at Omaha radar, it will show you what’s happening in Sioux City, but not Sioux Falls. The Omaha radar will appear as if nothing is happening in Sioux Falls. To see Sioux Falls, you fave to switch to the Sioux Falls radar. But then it will appear as if nothing is happening in Sioux City. This is even worse functionality than you would get for free from your local TV station.
We have a motorhome which makes us vulnerable in extreme weather situation not only when driving but when parked. This app has been fantastic to help up drill down to our exact location and track storm paths to see if they are coming near us. Using this app, we are able to see if we should move to a building or is it ok to stay put. We also use it to see if coastal storms are going to ruin a visit to the beach or will track to the north. When driving, we can see the weather that is ahead of us and plan accordingly. I recommend this app to all my rving friends and encourage them to subscribe to the PRO version for the best info.
I have yet to see a 1- or 2-star review from a RS user worth reading, let alone taking seriously. This app is powerful, highly usable, and packed with value. Many people will pay more for their next latte, so I'm not impressed with whining about the cost, either. Bottom line: Look at the substance of the positive vs negative reviews, and then make the right choice -- download the app and support its devs with a few dollars. You won't find a better radar app at ANY price.
So far I really like this app. However, I can’t figure out how to see a broader view of the radar. For instance, if I’m outside Philly I get the local DIX radar. But that only goes so far and I can’t see what’s coming in from State College. Can you only see one radar station at a time? There’s no regional view? National view?
I went out and purchased thinking would be better than storm radar after an article on best radar apps. But honestly not that exciting for the cost...rather us Storm
Good app overall I guess. Why is there no 5 day forecast I paid more than any other weather app and didn’t know there wasn’t a extended day forecast on here.
No way to even use the app anymore. Update didn’t work. Force crash on iPad Pro.
