  • .99 Cents a Month

    Not impressed. The free map shows past weather and if you wan5 current weather conditions you have to pay a monthly fee. Also, using the map overlay for clouds it showed none within hundreds if miles from me even though it was extremely cloudy and rainy. Maybe the app will get better, but I’m not paying a monthly fee for inaccurate weather information.
  • It doesn’t show any moisture, just warnings or watches

  • Satellite map is dark

    By boatguylive
    The new Satellite map is so dark most details cannot be seen. Can you change back to the old sat map data provider? If not possible, could you lighten the new map? Thanks
  • No radar info anymore

    By SchmeeDog
    Update - contacted by developer and given instructions to address the fact the app wasn’t working anymore. Deleting and reinstalling worked for me - app is back to working great!
  • Great

  • Suddenly stopped working

    By Nebmuzik
    Apparently this app just stopped showing precip for some reason. Multiple devices, networks, etc.
  • Bad change

    By ReviewingSomeApps182
    Ever since the change to how the map looks, this radar has been very inaccurate when informing me when and where there’s storms and hail. Used to be my go-to radar, but I can’t trust it anymore. It says hail at every little storm and there I wait, and nothing. Misinformed by the radar.
  • Bad

    By swhughes
    Had to delete and reload after going from a iPhone 7 to a 11 Pro and as expected, I lost all my pinned locations for regular travel and relatives. And it appears that I can no longer pin my home and office either!
  • Terrible!

    By Treefoot
    Terrible app! Doesn’t work most of the time. I’ve had to reinstall the app several time and it still doesn’t stay working.
  • Ok

    By Mistermagoo245t3
    Update: I uninstalled and reinstalled the app and it seems to be functioning normally. Will update my review again after I’ve used it more. Old review (1 star): The radar only works about 50% of the time, and when it does it’s painfully slow. I wish I could get a refund.
