Ratings and Reviews
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!
Not enough education
Even in this app they have a actually picture of a Plane Contrails. They dissipate the Ice When the sun is out. Gov/CIA already admitted they spray toxins they change name to aerosols atmosphere injections if you don’t cover it then I think it is a CIA app
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
