What's New in Version 2.1.4
- bug fixes
Parts of the US just don
If you want to know what the weather is in, say Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky--forget it! If you're in the Middle Atlantic, good luck. There are no local apps for these, so when you try to zoom in from the national picture, it just goes away. There are better apps that give you views of ALL of the states, not just the corners and upper central states, which is all this has.
UPDATE: Doesn't help. Middle Atlantic and many portions of the US still completely missing. Also, national view in landscape splits horizontally all the way across the screen. Unstable and disappointing app, even for 99 cents.
Not bad if... (v2.1.3)
I've used the Florida Radars app for awhile & like it. Unfortunately the US version is lacking. Aside from the missing radars identified in some of the other reviews: 1) The entire SE region appears to be missing. 2) Setting a default did not work for the Southern region. 3) The user interface could REALLY use a makeover on all of their "radar" apps.
All in all, its not a bad app, I do find it useful.
not quite what I expected
Radar images are sharp but I have a couple of suggestions for the developer. Navigation is really slow...even when on wifi. Also, there seems to be no way to customize/specify a map location making it very time consuming and cumbersome to get to the one I relly am interested in. If there is a way it's not obvious. I think it needs a 2.0 update.
