Great resource, but...
The Oklahoma Mesonet is a world-class weather resource and the app is generally very good. However, the changes to radar functionality in the latest version are not particularly helpful. Tapping the 'location' button now automatically shifts the view to the nearest radar location; I'd prefer to select the radar station manually, as the site closest to my area (Vance AFB) shows a lot of interference. Also, the state radar composite seems to be missing from the maps section. Please consider restoring these options in the next update.
