Ratings and Reviews
Just what I was looking for!
I want neither a committee nor a ‘social network’ to view, amplify, or grade my cloud names! I have no reason to ‘log in’ either: I just want to learn about clouds, why they create the shapes they do, when they occur, what do the weather-folks call them? This App does exactly that for the whole family! Concise, clear, photos are easy to view, even though some of those clouds do look the same to me. Haven’t had this but a couple weeks and have referred to it several times, no hesitating nor crashing nor sudden closing on my (iPhone 6. Really do like this App. Thanks!
I’ve loved this app forever...
But because it’s been around for so long, they really need to update their images. The beautiful images look so low quality on current screens. Still, useful and I adore it.
Very well done
This new update works without a problem, bug free. Nice app with good descriptions of cloud types. Landscape mode not included but would benefit iPad users. Good job!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
