Ratings and Reviews
Very nice Lee put together
As a blind person, knowing what the weathers going to do for me for traveling every day is an absolute necessity. I am pleased to say that this app accomplishes that all in one seamless app. VoiceOver works very well with this app, everything reads, buttons are properly labeled, and I can get around the app with no problems. I absolutely love when an app developer designs an app with Accessibility in mind right from the beginning, and this app developer has clearly done their job and done it very well.
This app is amazing. ANY product from ANY National Weather Service office or Storm Prediction Center can be pushed immediately to your device as soon as it is issued. The tech support is second to none if you have any questions or need help. With location services on this app can alert you of any weather alerts issued by the NWS for your current location.
Great for Storm Spotters and Weather Enthusiasts
Excellent app for storm spotters and weather enthusiasts to have quick and easy access to National Weather Service text-based products. I use this app every day. Push alerts and and favorites feature are especially handy.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
