iDamage pushes thunderstorm damage reports originating from trained spotters, emergency responders, and members of the public to your iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad (in native resolution). If you chase tornados, hail, or high winds for a living, or volunteer to assist your community during severe weather events, or just want to improve your situational awareness on days when storms might pop up, iDamage is the app for you.
Here are its features:
Storm total precipitation feature allows you to view the latest storm total precipitation radar image (if available) as a map overlay (568 point display height devices and iPad only). Hail will typically cause precipitation to be overestimated. The larger the hail, the greater the overestimation. This behavior may, in conjunction with damage reports, help you determine the path of a hail storm.
- Push notification of storm events, oftentimes including very specific damage reports. Coverage area includes the entire Contiguous (Lower 48) United States.
- User-configurable filters allow you to receive notifications for the entire Contiguous US, an entire state, a local area, and/or for specific types of severe weather (tornado, hail, high wind). Use the auto-location feature of your mobile device to set a filter if you are traveling and not sure of your general location.
- Filter push notifications by hail size
- Optional alternate push alert sound for hail events
- Map of storm events with color coded pins. Timeframes are 3-hr, full day, or archival (back to 29 Feb 2004). Touch any pin for access to details. iPod Touch users, data from your last view is cached for off-line use.
- Filter Map View by event type and hail size
- List of storm events in table form. Touch any cell in the table for a single pin street or hybrid map view.
- Link to the "Maps" app on your home screen so you can get directions to the approximate location of severe weather events.
- Storm reports may be e-mailed from within iDamage.
- 24 hour (with radar animation + watch boxes), 2-day, 3-day, and 4-8 day convective (thunderstorm) outlook with probability maps and technical discussion.
- Mesoscale discussions with maps
- Convective weather watches with maps.
- Local hazardous weather products (including watches and warnings), selectable by touching a location on a map or via auto-location.
- Combined radar frame/tornado, severe thunderstorm, and flash flood warning box display.
- Lightning strike data.
*** NOTE: Watches, warnings, and lightning strikes are NOT pushed. iDamage only pushes reports of thunderstorm (convective) events. Tropical and extratropical systems may not generate reports.
- 9 pm - 9 am silence switch in Settings view. Push notifications will visually display, but alert tones are silenced.
- User customizable startup functionality.
- iDamage has wildfire capability! Get a map of satellite thermal anomaly detections plus public wildfire reports. See screenshot(s).

Good overall app.
As a roofer, good app. Wish it had "ink-blot" type maps that showed entire area hail fell instead if pin points, but this is still a very good tool once you figure out how to use everything. Especially without paying hundreds of dollars for a single map.
Why does your app not pin point it accurate?
Don't waste your money on this app! I am a new user for only a week. I have 5 other weather apps on my phone that I use to track hail storms. I have this app set to the lowest of 1 inch size for hail. Yet it did not show hail recorded in MS or TN or TX in the last 8 hours. Some areas had larger then 1 inch. The only hail reported here today was by a user reporting it. Does this app solely rely on individuals reporting the weather? Today 4-17-15 there is hail all over Texas 2 inches and better. I have my region as all 48 states but the map never indicated the hail.
