Trouble during storm
This app is generally great, however it was not helpful during Hurricane Isaac. (We were on its direct path.) I had great difficulty loading the data even though I had signal and also, for a period of time, I know you had technical trouble with your laptop and the app was not available. The information that I needed as the storm began to approach us closely was not available. I wanted to be able to see radar and check warnings for both our family and family that was in neighboring areas. The App was more helpful well in advance of the hurricane to give early warning. Perhaps you can develop a way to access information that can download more easily fir those in the path of a major storm that are dependent upon cell phones. I have 4G service but it loaded so slowly it timed out. Perhaps a short cut to the current storm without having to load the entire page (even though your graphics look great). All in all I think this is a helpful app if you are able to work out some of these issues. The maps and details are great to have organized in one place. The prime problem (which may be out of your control) is when the storm is at or near our doorstep.
Living in Caribbean (US Virgin Islands), the need for solid updated weather information during hurricane season is paramount, and 'Hurricane Tracker' does just that! Very impressed with the user-friendly layout of the app.
For example, the various sorts of satellite maps all in one place gives an ideal overview point of an active system.
Checked our many many other hurricane and weather apps, but this one sure beats then all in timely updates(!!), ease of use and reliability.
On a side-note; one feature I would like to see added (if possible!) is the ability to see the Hurricane Hunter's flight data (pressure, flight winds, temps, etc.) on a map, as it is happening (as close to 'real time' as possible).
That way one can have the 'finger on the pulse' with all the data the NHC is working with.
Last: the timely 'Push' alerts are a VERY impressive feature!!!!
Living in South Louisiana I needed a good hurricane tracker. This app surpassed my expectations. The computer models, radar, satellite images, tropical waves, and more...we just went thru Issac. I watched as it got closer and could easily figure out how much time I had before. It would hit. I could plan safely in advance! Before the stores ran out of food and there was no gasoline left at the stations...I was set with this app. I used to go to TWC when I needed to check, but would have to wait till it go to the tropics. Even then, i was subject to what they wanted to show me. With this app, I can go to any area that I want to see at the touch of the app. Very cool! Keep the family safe with this app you can plan ... This is the must have app for hurricane prone areas.
