Bare bones but fast, well worth $

Edit and downgrade: Am downgrading to four star from five star. The reason because in the latest update I no longer have the option for full screen of the radar. I am now unable to temporarily remove the bottom toolbar which in Treut at two special screen real estate when I want to look at the radar map. Why in the world with a developer remove that feature which is one of the main reasons why I paid for the subscription and gave it a five star originally.

Most all free weather apps are bloated with huge file sizes and are slow to load updated radar. They have too many complicated layers and try to do everything. This little app is only 7 megs whereas other weather apps are between 75 and 150 megs. So it’s fast and does its jjob very well in the radar department. A huge plus for this app is that the map shows practically the entire screen which is a great thing for those who use the smaller iPhones. No more clutter intruding on the precious screen real estate. Today I got to test it extensively in southeast Alabama with numerous pop up thunderstorms and it ALWAYS updated in 5 minutes or less. I must mention that this slim app has added bonus of using very little cellular data when using even aggressively. I use another app for basic weather forecasting etc. that is more detailed in that regard and it’s a free app called BeWeather, together with this simple but great radar app makes for a great combo. Highly recommend.



This is one of my most used apps! It has saved me a lot of time by seeing areaspu to avoid while traveling and what to expect while at home. The best example of how accurate this app is, it saved me from getting caught in a tornado in northern Colorado. I noticed dark black clouds in the direction I was traveling. I viewed the app, saw deep dark reds and purples ahead so I pulled over and stopped my vehicle. I waited for about 20 minutes until the storm on the app had passed. As I proceeded on my trip, their were several cars and 18 wheelers flipped over and damaged, some with injuries! I'll keep this app AL!WAYS!


Go to radar app

I have many various weather apps as I spend a considerable amount of time out on the big waters of Lake Superior. This is my "go to" radar app when I need to know what's going on with approaching weather. Also, I'm a real estate broker and spend considerable time way back in the woods of the upper peninsula. Whenever I'm heading into the backwoods, I set this app to the satellite image mode for pinpoint accuracy of my location. This is one of my top 5 apps out of more than 100 on my device to choose from!
