What's New in Version 4.7
* Bug fixes
Intellicast is Superior to Storm
It is ridiculous that all the weather apps are being bought out by inferior product lines that share the same dull fuzzy platform. I stopped viewing The Weather Channel because they stopped serious weather reporting. Intellicast WORKS, provides superb intel, is easy to navigate, is platform stable, is user intuitive. Storm is none of those. The monopoly on weather has gotten out of hand. If I wanted smooth edged circles and blurred high def radar I would stick with other apps. Where is the selection of multi locale push notifications? Not in Storm. Check out the other "updated" apps - they all have the same blurry radar and even the same grainy grey desktop that flips to settings. I'm not interested in special effects, just accurate weather reporting. When Weather Underground got bought I knew it was getting harder for free enterprise to succeed over marketing glam weather. Intellicast has been, by far, the best there is. Storm can't even deploy an ad free product when ad free is purchased. The graphics are low res, the screen violates visual theory, fonts too small, forecasting dismally short. The screen is compressed in aspect ratio to 1/3 of the former visual field. Visuals are too dark. I do not like this forced change at all.
Certainly better than Storm
One of the things I like better about this app is the 'Future' feature, it calculates what a storm is going to change by using evolving weather patterns and pressures. The Storm app takes the last radar picture then moves it ahead one hour... that is NOT giving me the best guesstimate of what the future weather may be, and it is a waste of time. And this brings up another feature that the Intellicast app has that Storm doesn't, it shows the changing future weather for the next several hours, instead of the one hour that the Storm app shows. Storm is useless when looking for possible weather changes, especially when traveling.
It is a shame they are going to discontinue this app as it is far superior to the Storm app. I don't understand what the developers were thinking when they decided to get rid of one app and replace it with something far inferior...
Intellicast vs Storm - hands down, Intellicast!
I have really tried to like the replacement for Intellicast, but Storm is awful. Intellicast is 5 stars, but the "switch" to Storm doesn't even rate 1 star, however the 5 stars are for Intellicast! Storm doesn't even come close to Intellicast's features in any way. Storm is a HORRIBLE choice as a replacement. It feels like not just a step down, but several steps down and backward. I will continue to use Intellicast as long as possible and continue to search for a true replacement for when I have to switch - Storm is NOT IT! At least not without a major overhaul! Storm is a horrible disappointment as a replacement product! I want my Intellicast!!! :(
