Maps and radar
App provides great selection of maps and radar so one can make decisions not swayed by sensationalism of reporters trying to keep viewers. I've experienced many hurricanes, firsthand, including having a FEMA trailer in my yard for months while rebuilding from hurricane damage to my home. I've lived through hurricane caused power outages that lasted for 10 days. The power of wind, water and storm surge cannot be underestimated. However, weather specialists who seem to be cheering for a storm to grow or intensify are too hard to watch for long. Water distributors, generator manufacturers, battery makers and plywood retailers should be their biggest sponsors as they scare residents over hundreds of miles to purchase out of fear. Hurricane prep purchases need to be done when there is no approaching storm.
This app provides all the same maps being used by the tv weather guru's without the overblown hype while they stand in the wind or rain making it melodramatic. Hurricane Isaac has shown how the prognosticators cannot be relied upon in the present state of science as the "models" had the hurricane making landfall from Panama City, Florida to west of New Orleans, Louisiana only a few days before landfall. Use of this app allows one to view all the up to date maps, radars and projections to make an informed decision. Good purchase if you live in area subject to the impact of hurricanes.
Overall, useful and worth buying
Living in the Gulf Coast region I find this to be a useful "dashboard" of what is going on. Hear are some minor grips and suggestions: the performance can be a bit slow at time (having to "scrape" large graphics from other sites is likely culprit), navigation can be a bit quirky at times making content feeling jumbled together, it would also be nice if navigating back could be supported by gestures vs. small back & Home buttons in lower corner of the nav bar. It would be useful to have links out to content source sites to see more info. Also would like easier/quicker method to see outlook on new tropical waves prior to any becoming an "invest".
All that said, I find that I use this app multiple times a day and it allows quick "drills" into pertinent detail for storms. Also, the audio, video, and Twitter features are good value adds. In summary, this app is is well worth the purchase price.
If 6 stars were available, this App would deserve it! With the new maps under outlook, Hurricane Tracker has surpassed everyone else out there iApp and otherwise. Hands down the best tropical weather App on the market.
We own a small and growing airline based in the Caribbean; we used Stormpulse last season (we hadn't implemented iPads yet). Hurricane Tracker is every bit as good as Stormpulse - wi
WITHOUT their (Stormpulse) obscene $499/year subscription fee!
One item the App doesn't have that would be useful would to be a tool to measure distance from a storm's center to cities/landmarks.
Good, useful data is critical to our operation.... Hurricane Tracker is now Our primary tropical weather data source! Keep up the good work!
