Ratings and Reviews
Good but could be improved
Graphics seem to be limited to two, the hurricane path and the wind distribution. Would be improved if app included the full complement of graphics found on the full website. The listings of graphics, summaries, discussions and advisories are all in one long list so if more then one hurricane is being reported on at the same time it gets confusing finding the data you’re wanting for a specific hurricane. Would be improved if data was grouped by hurricane.
Ads continue in NOAA Now Pro
Two days ago I upgraded to pro to eliminate ads. The ads continue anyway. The full screen pop-up are particularly annoying. Please refund the upgrade charge.
Edit: Turns out the in-app upgrade installed a totally new app in addition to the original free one, which was not within my folder containing weather apps. I had no way of initially knowing this. I stand corrected. The NOAA Now Pro does NOT contain ads.
You can forget what your local tv says;
The weather animations and cloud cover along with front movements are just about all you need to see what the weather will be the next few hours or days or up to a week. Weather is an interesting science and with these weather maps, you will soon learn to read a weather depiction chart and be your own forecaster.
