Not what it used to be.

I understand the old weather provider expiring and all but it seems like a slight to us who paid for the pro version to not receive the newer app for free. I remember the old app seemed to have better functionality and more layers. This new version seems dumbed down, and it doesn’t look like I’m the only one to think that. I also find it odd that NOAA, a government agency is charging so much for an app, in addition to a monthly fee. So not only are my tax dollars paying for this information to be created but I’m then charged a monthly fee to see said information. Very odd.

Useless, pointless app

Right now it’s raining buckets at my home one mile north of SAT - that’s San Antonio International Airport and guess what this app is displaying: nothing! According to this app there’s no rain within 200 miles. No lightning, no rain, nothing! Well, that’s not entirely true. It could be useful as a road map but I already have “Maps” for that...

Overall good but . . .

Don’t open the info on hurricanes or typhoons. If there are lots of data points the info completely covers your screen to the point that you are not able to close the pop up. Have to actually shut down your phone in order to get back to home screen.

Old technology

No dark mode and no update in over a year. I have had this app almost 10 years and it is time to delete. Too many other apps so much better than this one.

Informative when I need it

I appreciate the helpful use of this app. It is raining and bad storms in the area, and I am much more informed with this awesome app.

This WAS the best weather radar app

Now it is every slow to load. Even slower to load the movement view.

Please use different color to highlight winter weather watch boxes. White is too difficult to see.
