Recent Updates Problematic
I have use this app on my i-Pad for about 3 years. At first, it was wonderful for what I needed, but it started having problems after recent updates were made over the past year or so. Now, when I'm using the radar, and am trying to zoom out to get a better idea of how big or how far away a storm is, or how it is tracking, it almost always crashes, and I have to start all over, only to have it crash again. Sometimes it crashes when I first try to access the radar. The radar also has some accuracy problems. I have been in a pouring rain that was not shown on the radar at all, and there is often a lag between what the radar is showing, and what the current conditions really are. Other than that, I'm generally happy with the app.
Great app! I always check for current weather and forecast
I refer to this app every morning. It is pretty accurate as far as predicting general weather and warnings are on the button. The radar is updated every 30 minutes, so if it's severe weather here in Alabama, I have to use the TV for exact location of the worst parts of the storm. It's also very pleasing to the eye graphically and I enjoy the background pictures that give a pictorial description of the current conditions in my exact location. I also like the ability to check weather in other multiple locations easily just by swiping right or left. I can't think of any improvements. Great app!
Good basic weather info
This app provides good basic weather information like all other weather apps in a zillion different websites. I used it several times today and have been using it for four years. The summary of current conditions and brief forecasts for the days ahead are convenient, but I wish more detailed information was available for long-range planning. There is plenty of real estate on an iPad screen to provide a great deal more forecast information. What weather patterns are developing around the country and around the world that are likely to shape conditions in a few days or a few weeks? It would also be nice to see information on historical comparisons and trends.
