• In the Layers “Alerts” section, tap the new Lightning button to see Lightning Strikes within 150 miles of that location.

2) Landscape mode for iPhone is back!
• Enjoy viewing the Radar map full-screen in both Landscape and Portrait views, just like in the old app.

3) Fire Weather alerts layer is back!
• In the Layers “Alerts” section, tap the new “Other” button to view Fire Weather, Wind, Heat, and other misc. alerts.

4) New option to customize the time format for the Radar loop.

Customer Reviews

Still horrible. Do not buy this app.

I see the developer keeps issuing the same thing saying they are sorry we are not happy with the app. I don’t believe it. They are sorry they got a low rating now and are trying to get a good one back. They keep saying they had to rebuild it from the ground up. I can see that due to apple software changing. But that’s not what has everyone mad. We want what we had back and we wanted it to look and work the same way. Surely the developers could’ve handled that. But they didn’t. They got greedy and tried to charge us more money. They when we didn’t pay and started to give bad reviews they decided to try to pacify us. Well that didn’t work. I don’t think there is anything short of completely redoing the app to make it look and function exactly like it did before will ever get you back close to where you were. Even then I don’t see that happening. The way we were treated was unacceptable. This is a perfect example of how great capitalism works. If the costumers are mistreated we have the option to complain and do something about it.

Give them a break.

It is not back to my five star evaluation, but I don't see it as a one star anymore. I could even put it closer to four given their recent efforts. The in app purchase only involves future weather for the subscription. Storm tracking and lightning are back with no subscription required but only appear when radar is in pause mode as opposed to appearing during play mode as it did in one of the previous versions, and the display is different. I guess the various icons that you could use to mark preferred locations and the widget are gone. I am satisfied with the re-revamp enough to have returned the app from my ignored back page apps to its original front page location.


I do not believe your excuses that the original app needed to be revamped for IOS10. A monthly subscription does not make an app any more or less compatible with an IOS. If that were the case, I guess we can expect Google and Facebook to require monthly subscriptions soon to be compatible with iOS 10. What nonsense.

You will never get more than 1 star out of me until this app is restored to its previous line of features that we already paid for. Future customers need to be aware of this shady scheme you pulled here, where people agreed to purchase an app at a set price, and then you decide that you didn't feel that price was worth the app and change it to a monthly subscription.

Disgraceful, shameful, and crooked.
