The award-winning My-Cast app delivers comprehensive yet intuitive weather information specifically for the iPhone and iPod Touch. Un-cluttered base maps display animated radar, clouds and StormWatch severe weather alerts allowing effortless interpretation of how the weather affects your day. As you check out the current weather, you may see drifting clouds or falling rain as My-Cast's distinctive weather themes come to life. Whether you are interested in weather for today, tomorrow or next week, My-Cast has you covered. When severe weather strikes, My-Cast transmits the latest alerts direct from the National Weather Service.
The new My-Cast Weather tropical outlook feature provides you with pertinent real-time tropical weather tracking information that you can animate and interact with, not just static images scraped from other websites.

What's New in Version 1.6.2
Corrects issue finding current location for some devices
Scam and Fraud - DO NOT BUY !!!!!!!!!!
I am an old user of My Cast. I had the My Cast One Look on my 3G. One look started having some issues on the 3G and I was excited to be getting a 4S that would hopefully resolve those issues. I was disappointed to learn that I would have to buy a new app instead of getting an upgrade to the IOS 5 platform.
I called Digital Cyclone and was told that since they gave away the One Look free for about 6 months then they decided to not offer a free update due to the changes in OS from Apple with iOS 5. I informed him that other companies were offering free updates instead of coming out with a new app and forcing people to buy it again.
I did decide to buy the app though just to have the alerts, only learning after app was downloaded that I would have to PAY EXTRA FOR ALERTS!!!! WHICH WAS A FREE SERVICE ON THE ONE LOOK APP !!!!!
SCAM, FRAUD, BAD BUSINESS PRACTICE
STAY AWAY FROM
AWFUL COMPANY PHILOSOPHY
DIGITAL CYCLONE HAS NO MORALS OR ETHICS
Still waiting for everything to work correctly. Current conditions are often wrong. Hourly graph hasn't worked since last update. Please fix!!
Great improvements, but disappointed at being charged again.
I have been using My-Cast on my phones since 2004. I have been using the iPhone version, My-Cast OneLook since 2008 and had a few issues with it when I upgraded to iOS4, but it was still useable. When I upgraded to iOS5 the screen controls ceased working. I contacted Garmin/Digital Cyclone and they said OneLook does not work with iOS5 and I would have to purchase this new version. While this new version does have some nice features, a free upgrade would have been in order. Instead, Garmin/Digital Cyclone renamed the product and charged $3.99 even to existing users who had already purchased it. 5 stars for the product itself. I would have given 1 star for customer satisfaction in regards to having to pay for it again.
