*Email from Customer Scott DeLacy: "With the new maps under Outlook, you have SURPASSED everyone else out there...Hurricane Tracker is now British Virgin Islands Airways' primary tropical data source, No one comes close."

Poorly designed & unintuitive interface
I can only surmise that all the glowing reviews are from people who don't use their iOS devices much for anything else and have never seen an elegantly designed app. This is awkward and, perhaps more importantly, doesn't allow detailed full viewing of any of the maps it's linking to.
For instance, I was trying to track TS Bertha as it went over my home in Providenciales, Turks & Caicos and the map wouldn't zoom in close enough to even identify the various islands in our archipelago, much less be able to see the different areas on a particular island.
I recommend you look elsewhere for a hurricane app.
Great app for my needs
This app is pretty close to perfect for what I need as a South Florida resident - starts fast, easy to navigate, useful graphics and maps.
Was able to give it a "test run" with Erika and kept me aware of it every step, from all devices (laptop, iPad, phone). When I wanted more detail I just switched to NWS or WU for that; they're slower, take more wifi bandwidth and are clunkier, but I didn't need them nearly as much. Well worth worth the pennies.
Great app. Year after year.
After 8 years of using iPhones and iPads, I've never left an app review. However, I've used this app more than half a decade and it is still the most complete source I have for storm data. It gets better year after year, with maps and forecast info presented in a clean, easy to read manner.
Thank you Hurricane Tracker team and here's to a quiet season.
