I can't support, or condone, a weather app that requires you to pay for their pro version just to be able to use their hurricane tracking feature. This is something that should be available to everyone, no payments or "pro" app necessary. I'd rather use a less accurate service, so long as it's free for everyone! Charge for every other feature, even, but don't hide a natural disaster tracker behind a paywall! Full Review

Sucks don't work. I'm in the middle of a tropical storm and the app says everything is fine. I think it is funny that the maker of this software want me to collect data for them. News Flash! Make a good product before launching! Also it is so very obvious that you paid for a lot of your reviews from the beginning because the most current reviews say your app sucks. Full Review

You can get quick radar look and forecast.. Paid $2for no ads I like it even better now. If you need the weather it's pretty much here an handy. I Truck an this fits perfectly. Get forecast an radar with a click.. Be nice if you could see how fast a system or storms are moving. Full Review

Buck-a-month subscription version is top notch and runs fast on my 2-year-old mid-level phone! Rates 5 STARS... if not $11.88 per year. Free version is nothing but bad bloatware! Loads huge ads. Consistently launched ad when back page button was hit. Ads cause lockup on my Nexus 6. Free version needs a premium phone with a fast cpu. Full Review

Won't work for LG G6, can't get into settings. When I click on the settings button it brings me to the location bookmark page and gives me the message that I can turn off locations in the settings. I can't access the rain overlay or the forecast pages unfortunately. The only items I can see are the main radar page and location bookmarks. Please let me know when these bugs areworked out for the LG G6 and I'll try reinstalling. I've got a couple friends who have it on their Samsung7 and 8 who like it a lot. Thanks for any help!

Update 9/5/17: The app is very good, but would benefit from some tweaks such as the ability to add ALL parameters and the DATE to the widget. Also of greatest importance, is to add the forward speed & direction of movement to the hurricane tracking info! The info is available, so please add it to the info you provide! It's a pain to have to check another app or a web site to get that information. Still 3 stars. If the above is accomplished, I'll add more. Keep all it. You're getting there! ______________________________ Too many ads in free version. I uninstalled, then after a few days, reinstalled & upgraded to paid version, which is respectably better, but it could still use some tweaks. Overall, it's okay. Recent update doesn't have the option to remove pins on map for saved locations. Please reinstate that ability! Full Review

AWESOME, 5 STARS!Â¡! HOWEVER; I PROUDLY ADMIT I BELIEVE IT'S A FLAT EARTH! I LIVE ON THE FACE of the EARTH THE FOUNDATION OF THE UNIVERSE. I FEEL SURE WE'LL HAVE THAT TRUTH. I CAN'T CALL IT A PARADIGM SHIFT. PARADIGM IS AN APPROACH BASED ON ASSUMPTIONS. MISLEADING WITH INTENT. WOW! SALVATION; YOUR GONNA NEED IT! THERE IT IS! OH NO SHE DIDN'T! Full Review

Way too many separate notifications. No options to turn them off. Temperature, alerts for areas that I wasn't in. Update: Apalon Apps replied claiming I could turn off the notifications. I followed the instructions and unchecked every box. I still have an unremovable notification for the wrong area. I am not impressed. Downgrading review from two to one star. Full Review

If you really want to know what the actual forecast for your area is, including weather warnings, always check out the National Weather Service or this application. They work harder than any other organization to make sure you get the most accurate weather information. But I always say, go online and learn about the types of clouds and how to interpret radar. Learn how to read the sky--it can literally save your life, as many tornadoes form with little to no warning, despite the best efforts of weather agencies to warn you. Full Review

Not usually the most accurate, but easier to use, and you can see other areas fairly easily. More accuracy (its been off by 8d!), means more stars. Dont expect 100%, or even 90, to be honest, but when its raining and this is stating semi cloudy, ya kinda wonder, right? All in all its a fine app, but the rain thing (even snow!!), drops the stars a bit. Fix THAT, and I'd 5 it easily. Full Review

Downloaded to watch hurricane progress. That is only available in premium, so what's the use? I can look out the window to see if it's raining. Too many ads, too often & cover the whole screen. Not what I anticipated or wanted Full Review
Jeremy Jahnke Published date: September 8, 2017
Its alright. I read a few reviews before installing. Most people seem to find the ads annoying. An add popped up while I was typing this review. I like that it shows you the radar as soon as you open the app but If its going to be annoying I'm removing it. Get rid of the full screen ads and use simple banner ads. The best way to have ads without pissing people off is to have them voluntarily watch an ad before enabling a feature. Every time they go into the settings then show an add. Don't just randomly blast an ad on the screen. Full Review

I'm looking for a hurricane tracking application this advertise itself as a tracking application. But you have to buy it in order to get the feature of a tracking application. All they want is your money in the middle of a hurricane I really hate gouging. Last time I'll look at an app from The Weather Channel. Full Review
Dave Zimmerman Published date: September 12, 2017
Flashing ads at bottom are so annoying. This was uninstalled in under a minute. The irony is that the NOAA website has no ads because it is a government website, so wondering if this app is even affiliated with NOAA. I will just keep using my bookmark on Chrome Full Review
Alexandra Madden Published date: September 11, 2017
Of all companies and organizations providing weather forecasts, I never expected NOAA to be the one with the most obnoxious pop up ads and persistent requests to pay for 'premium' severe storm tracking. Edit: Using the acronym NOAA to market an app providing weather forecasts with the most obnoxious "pop up ads" and persistent requests to pay for 'premium' severe storm tracking is ridiculously misleading to the average downloader and even more embarrassing for NOAA. Full Review
Michael Hartzell Published date: September 4, 2017
Take the temperature and add off the bottom and I would give it one more star. When going to settings the adds get intrusive and hard to find how to back out of advertisements and get to the actual radar. All I wanted was a Simple radar that you could click on when needed, not being bothered by unnecessary adds and alerts. After that said. It's not going to rain long. Full Review

It was working great! But then... ð²Woke up & hurricane irma was gone! ? I have reinstalled app, but all it shows is part of its outter ring & Irma hasn't moved. I know better! Full Review
C. Reid McLellan Published date: September 8, 2017
Just like everybody else even NOAA uses hurricanes 24 sever body to buy stuff. the NOAA weather radar on my phone indicates that there is a little bit of rain in the Bahamas it shows absolutely nothing of hurricane armor. I can get that on WeatherBug or my local news better oh but if I buy the premium package then I can get the hurricane tracker Full Review
K Casey Published date: September 7, 2017
Download this to track hurricane Irma. The news outlets just kept saying it was the "biggest ever" but not giving me any information about where it was, now I know. Being able to follow it by satellite is so helpful. Full Review
JimmyD Watkins Published date: September 6, 2017
I just downloaded the app today and also purchased the premium version. I haven't had it long enough to give a real good review, but from the preliminaries, it seems to be a good tool. I trust NOOA more than most weather reports. Full Review
Jesse E Published date: September 10, 2017
I've had it installed for 2 minutes and already had 4 pop-ups asking me to, rate us! Do you like the app? Do you want to upgrade? How about rating us!... That's why this gets 2 stars. Full Review
Timothy Simpson Published date: September 1, 2017
If you want it to send weather alerts, you have to pay for it. Something other free weather alert apps do free. And if I try to zoom in on your area, it goes to a blank screen, then crashes. Full Review
Derek Johnson Published date: September 4, 2017
Within 30 seconds of launch: "Rate our App" and two advertisements. Uninstalled. The ad-revenue model is destroying functionality of applications. This has gotten ridiculous. DEVs: Just stop. Charge a flat fee for your application. Full Review
Missy B Published date: September 9, 2017
It does give good updates. I am highly aggravated that you have to upgrade and pay to get hurricane updates. Im in an area prepping for a hurricane and instead of getting what could be life saving updates I get pop ups to upgrade and advertisements. Uninstalling Full Review
DJ Abbott Published date: September 5, 2017
Prettt acurate radar. I was having issues finding reliable weather radars on a smart phone. Being in Emergency services, public works in the winter, and sometimes assisting with EMA. Its nice to finally find a radar. With they could make a more specific radar with more frequently updated scan. But I cant be picky. It is a great app! Full Review
Phil Maldonado Published date: September 8, 2017
So I have to pay for hurricane tracking? My family's lives are in grave danger and you want to charge me to help save the lives of my family? I hope a hurricane destroys you and your families!!! Full Review
Brad Schlangen Published date: September 6, 2017
12 mb for practically nothing. If it was only 120k I would keep it installed, but the weather channels app does way more for about the same footprint. Uninstalled Make it smaller, size does matter and in this market bigger isn't better. Full Review
Jeff Slusher Published date: September 4, 2017
This app is awsome up to the minute accurate lol I sound like the local guy but I can check on the weather at my dad's house in flordia and know when to fly him out if it's bad. Absolutely great to check when you are traveling or about to leave. Full Review

Staring down a Hurricane I can't see with a Tampa location?.?. Other than not seeing some semblance of a hurricane tracker SOMEWHERE SOMETIME DURING THE SEASON! "Yeahhhh, that'd be terrRIfiC." Wait... Is it behind a full page pop up? Full Review
Bobby Gale Published date: September 23, 2017
The adds are crazy!!!! WAY too may it's hard to use between the adds. Ps why would I buy a premium add when I can download wether bug for free and get half the adds and it's just as good? I'll stick with weather bug ty I'd rather just down load an app with half the adds you have, and have it be free. Full Review
Jeremy Teiber Published date: September 14, 2017
if it wasn't constantly trying to get me to upgrade, constantly selling me other ads, are constantly asking me to rate, it would be a pretty good app. Even if it did those with the regularity of other apps, but it is constant multiple times during a use there are pop ups. I don't know how it is as a paid app, but I refuse to upgrade based on how annoying it is. So I have found another app to give me the same information that is much easier and less annoying to use Full Review
R. Martin Armstrong Published date: September 9, 2017
Good, just have to get used to how the map is laid out. Hard to see coastline of Floridia with radar on top of them. Getting the hang of how it is presented. Contrasting color or more defined land boundary would be great. Full Review
Triston J. Taylor Published date: September 5, 2017
Needs zoom in/out controls (like google maps, web browser editions). I use a keyboard and mouse on android x86. Touch gestures are not intuitive, and sometimes they cause unintended things, and cannot be disabled in many android apps. if you activate the android zooming gestures (newer androids), and read the tutorial (in settings), this app will give you lots of great detail; more so than other apps i have tried this far. Full Review
Published date: September 16, 2017
Good app and fun to look at. LOTS of information. The main display shows a 48-hour history - I'm not sure that's ever useful. The widget shows minimal info; it could be much better. Full Review
Ginny Caspar Published date: September 11, 2017
I would love to give it more *'s if I could figure out how to get rid of a town that is orange/red flagged on my map. I don't know that I've ever even been to this town so if it got marked somehow by me, it was accidentally and I'd like to know how to unmark it. :-/ Full Review
Miren Lazzarini Published date: September 10, 2017
I just wrote this huge long review and it was deleted as I scrolled down this app which is okay I wish that it would have a longer spanding imagery radar and different layers that I could choose as such as weather fronts earthquakes I wish it was easier to change the location and get updates on that location. I know you have the capabilities and I would be a forever subscriber if this was updated soon. I miss intellecast :( Full Review
David Parker Published date: September 16, 2017
Your app is garbage. Maybe if it showed an actual radar image instead of a Google map image of where I live, it would be worth a shot. Full Review
Bob Volpe Published date: September 22, 2017
Doesn't refresh temperature fast enough to use as a home screen widget. Temperature is always 10 degrees off in Maryland. No battery saver or antivirus being used. App is great minus the temperature issue. Radar is spot on. Full Review
