What's New in Version 1.31
Pretty accurate but weird
To it's credit, it's pretty accurate. The update includes a simple color scale that needed to be there from the beginning. I keep bumping into the drop pin icon while working the main panel, can't that be an option? The new font is harder to read. In order to get your snowcast you have to touch your pin and then hit yet another small icon to get to the forecast, shouldn't that be the main simplest, obvious thing? The only reason I hassle with this app is because like I said before, it's pretty accurate. And would it not be cool if you could also find out actual accumulations?
The NOAA premium app is supreme! It is fairly intuitive while still offering depth and a few cute features like the ability to snap a photo to create a weather post card ( your photo with the wx stats superimposed over the picture).
The real reason to get is to have access to the very best source of weather information available anywhere.
Forecasts, radar, wx notifications (message letting you know it's about to rain where you are, or any designated location), and lots of other wx information - including almost instant lightning strike info according to proximity from your location.
This app is well worth small amount it's offered for. I believe this is the only review I've ever written for App Store.
This is my favorite winter weather app. The interface isn't the most intuitive at first, but after a few uses it all makes sense. Highly recommended for staying up-to-date on snow forecasts. I find this particularly handy because I travel a lot in the car and I run a facility that requires snow forecasts for operation.
