Glad Others Also Agreed it's Useless..Don't waste your Money!
UPDATE: I Changed my rating from 1 star to 5 stars. The improvements are EXCELLENT and this app is one of my most used apps.. the huntsville radar now works as well as any other. UPDATE: the area inside the circle represents a hundred mile radius... or so... and seems to NEVER work... this is the left side of the visual... the right side works OK for the most part... the developers apparently can't solve the problem... as it persist... UPDATE: GREAT IDEA. POORLY IMPLEMENTED. fails far too often to be useful. One star only now... knowing what I know now... I would not have bought... Apple should give me a refund... UPDATE: Huntsville Al radar not working again... removing 2 stars until you can fix. Great APP I use almost every day... I have an old imac that I use... there are additions I think would be good... Huntsville AL. radar no longer works and is the best site for me... hope you can fix... Pick from Map don't work half the time...
I am a motorcycle rider. I mainly use this program to get a better idea of what the day will be like and what rain gear, if any, I may have to bring with me. Works great
Appearantly I bought this app some time ago and uninstalled it out of disappointment. I really like MyRadar for Android and iPad but have been really frustrated with NOAA offerings for iMac and MacBook. When this frustration led to another search for an alternative I found this (again) and when trying to buy it was informed I already had. I don’t remeber what I didn’t like about whatever previous version that was but this one works great. Yeah, not a ton of options, bells and whistles but it’s a clean interface that gets the job done and manages to please the eye in a utiltarian way. I look foward to further enhancments but even if none come I’d still remain a satisfied customer.
The radar controls are limited, and the split-screen presentation is there whether you want it or not. Details of forecast are also limited, compared to a program like Weatherunderground. I'm still looking for something better.
Tells me what I want to know in my area & in the rest of the country at a glance !
Cons: I sometimes use VPN, When I’m using it, the radar app sees the IP and moves the map to that location. I see no way to “LOCK” it in to a default setting. I'm in a dead spot. There's a radar in Billings MT and one south of me in like Laramie or Cheyenne WY. A huge storm can pass by and my area still shows it a clear, lol! I don’t like pop ups aking me to rate apps. I send feedback, got help within a day. Helpful. Cheaper alternative to other “Radar Apps”. Better price. Does a good job. Easy UI. Stable on Sierra.
I understood this supposed to be mainly present radar images. Turns out to be more forecast oriented. Radar map too small and confusing.
The lates version update of Radar Live adds a new look a performance improvement.
I bought and downloaded this app to my Mac Mini running El Capitan and it simply will not open! As far as the features are concerned, your guess is as good as mine as my application will not open.
