Description

Chief Meteorologist Kevin Lemanowicz and The Boston 25 StormTracker Weather Team of certified meteorologists have helped develop New England's most accurate local weather app.

Developed especially for New England, the Boston 25 StormTracker Weather app provides the most accurate local forecasts, to keep you and your family safe.

New England's most powerful local weather app includes:

*Free push alerts for every kind meteorological occurrence, from Blizzard Warnings to fog, fire, wind and flash flood alerts. See a complete list inside the alert settings.

*New map layers are now available to be added to the interactive radar, including severe weather watch and warning layers, snowfall estimates, storm reports and more. Tap the layers and settings buttons on radar to see a complete list.

*Locally developed weather forecasts from the Boston 25 StormTracker Weather Team. Select a specific location to see a local forecast. The app tells you which member of the Boston 25 StormTracker Weather Team crafted the local forecast. The weather changes rapidly in New England, so forecasts from national apps pre-loaded on your device lack the local expertise when severe weather threatens. The Boston 25 StormTracker Weather Team is focused solely on getting the local forecast right.

*Place a location pin precisely where you want for a specific address or any position on a map. When saving a location, just press and hold the pin and then drag it to the exact location of your choosing.

*A new location switcher in the app header allows you to quickly and easily cycle through all your saved locations and your current location.

*Both tablet and handset apps now have identical features and similar designs to make the app more intuitive for power users who want to use the Boston 25 StormTracker Weather app on multiple devices.

*The new video center gives you quick access to live streaming newscasts and other timely weather coverage from Boston 25 News and the Boston 25 StormTracker Weather Center. You can stay up-to-date as Boston 25's certified meteorologists track storms and provide minute-by-minute information on specific streets and neighborhoods threatened by severe weather.

In addition to these new features, the Boston 25 StormTracker Weather app still has these critical benefits:

-It's constantly updated with the latest area storm and forecast information, and includes Boston 25 StormTracker Weather's extended forecast, where "The Weekend is Always in View."

-It provides location-based storm alerts. While many other apps offer alerts based on your county, the Boston 25 StormTracker Weather app supports a more precise type of alert issued for the most dangerous types of weather threats. More precision means you get alerts that matter to you, not false alarms.

***ADDITIONAL FEATURES***
-Current conditions, hourly and daily forecasts for any location you enter.
-Background tracking for current location.
-Notifications for more than 100 alert types.
-Level3 interactive radar, animation/loops and visible satellite map.

Data and alerting available for the United States only. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Bad layout, bad content, bad controls,decent forecast

Tia RaeRae

2 stars for the forecast but I’m Disappointed that:
1)I can’t read the forecast tab without a non removable social media ribbon a third of the way down, right in front of the words. If you scroll, then a pop up with a non-weather headline blocks the bottom third. It’s supposed to be a WEATHER app, I don’t need news rid bits from across the country, just my local weather!
2) why does video play when I’m READING the forecast tab? There’s no way to stop it without scrolling up & turning off, then scrolling back down( because video feed takes up 2/3 of the screen!) that’s what the video tab is for! If I’m not in that tab, I don’t want to see/hear video.
3) if you accidentally hit a link to a news story, there is no way to go back to where you were. No ‘Back’ option...you have to go to Home & choose the tab again, which re-launches the non-weather related video that you just turned off,plus the annoying ad!
4) I might not mind #3, if those link had relevant news, but they’re just snippets of news from everywhere. Not even local/national; they could be about an ice storm in the UK! Waste of space. If I wanted general news snippets, I would’ve kept the news app.
5) the map rarely shows any relevant data, like the rain/snow lines, & is not interactive or even a loop video to show storm tracking, but this is the Storm Tracker app?
A weather app should stick to the weather! I’m deleting this app.

In accurate forecasts

Rev Jude

With the exception of Kevin all the rest of these women forecasters are useless because they are so inaccurate and also none of them cannot be trusted. I’ve seen them screwed it up so many times and I don’t trust him.

Cumbersome and a resource hog

Lynxious

This is a classic example of an app that can't do the one thing it's supposed to do well. It is a Weather app; all I want to see is the most recent forecast. Instead this app is constantly trying to sell you stuff and trying to get you to post to social media. They need to go back to the drawing board on this one.
