=== Now with optional Hurricane Tracking upgrade ===

Thanks to everyone for making MyRadar so successful, with over 6 million downloads!

MyRadar Pro a fast, easy-to-use, weather application that displays animated weather radar around your current location, allowing you to quickly see what weather is coming your way. Just start the app, and your location pops up with animated weather, allowing you to easily see if rain is headed your way. Our high-res animated radar helps you see weather details even at the closest level!

What's great about MyRadar is that the map is easily zoomed and scrolled around with the flick of a finger, allowing you to quickly check the weather in other parts of the country, including Hawaii & Puerto Rico!

On top of the basic weather, users can get a quick glance of temperatures around the country, as well as overlay a current satellite image of cloud cover. For you aviation buffs, there's a layer that provides Airmets & Sigmets, and even the ability to overlay the flight plan of a particular aircraft onto the map. You can also share interesting weather photos from your area, and see photos other users have contributed neatly displayed on the map.

Additional options include weather warnings and alerts, complete with push notifications, to warn you of severe weather in your area. Great for the start of thunderstorm and tornado season! There's also an optional hurricane tracker, providing excellent details and projections for the path of storms as the season looms near.

MyRadar Pro is just like the free version, but without any ads.

MyRadar Pro currently only shows weather in the United States, and only in the 48 contiguous states - unfortunately, Alaska is not covered, at present!

Buy MyRadar Pro today and try it out!

    I like it.

  • Nice App

    by Bajankurt

    It's a pretty cool App. Just wish it was global! Not just covering the USA. But other than that it's cool.

  • Use it all the time

    by Create nickname again7777

    Great app, great update Thanks!

  • Good app but one hole

    by pj47tech

    I definitely like the app for finding a moving radar image quickly. It's useful for knowing what precipitation is falling around you and what the pattern is going to become. However, in the winter season (when I'm writing this) the map only shows that precipitation is falling - you cannot tell if it is snow, rain or a mixed/ice condition. This is a crucial piece if information for winter travels and plans. As a result, I keep this app closed during the winter months and rely on other ones. In the spring/summer/fall seasons, this is not an issue.

  • Very Helpful

    by Cummins360

    This app is a must if you want accurate weather updates at any mom em you need them! It's prolly my most favorite app I have.

  • 4 could be 5

    by MattPCC

    I like it but on my iPhone 5 I can't read the entire detailed forecast. The words are cut off which is pretty irritating. If that was corrected would rate a 5.

  • Great App!

    Fast accurate and simple to use.

  • Very Professional Radar App

    by VooDoo-1

    I was looking for a good radar app to see what is happening around me at a moments notice and this app is the best one I could find. I also love the ad dons that you can get to make it even better. Get this one, you won't be sorry.

  • Great update!

    by Beemon

    I really like the new update. The new forecast and favorite places features are nice additions.

  • Excellent !!

    by Krug j.

    Love this app. Use it all the time. Beautiful. Great update. Thanks.

  • Great App, But...

    by xiape

    This app is really good at what it does, perhaps better than any other weather app. However, the app costs all of $1.99 for the PRO version while they charge $3.99--TWICE AS MUCH--for add-on services like NWS warnings & Hurricane information (for which they charge separately!). Add it all up, & the app at full functionality can end up costing $10! I feel a bit like I've been had, if I'm being honest. That's why I gave this app three stars. It performs well, so far as I can tell. The picture upload is cool, displaying land & water temps is cool, & providing SIGMETs & AIRMETs is actually awesome! However, the NWS warnings & Hurricane information could be the most important feature for many people. Leaving this out & charging double the app price for each feature is really a bait & switch that I don't appreciate.

  • Radar

    by Howard 49

    This is a great app for weather

  • Good driving app

    by Commercial Driver

    Excellent for commercial drivers. Only wish is that it had a national wind speed map. It's out of the box ready for night driving with minimum glare. A car dock is a must.

  • Simple and fast

    by Venkat1123

    Loads fast. Looks lucid and is very accurate. Near real time radar at your fingertips. Be the guy that knows when exactly the rain will stop!

  • Great App!!

    by Ysing

    Completes the weather picture. We live in mid Missouri and knowing which direction (from north or south) storms are coming from is important to us. This app is great.

  • PilotGuy

    by 320aviator

    Outstanding app! Easier than the ALPA app

  • Great safety tool

    by JamesDCLT

    I work outside for my living, and we get everything from ice storms and snow, to severe thunderstorms and a potential for tornadoes. I depend on a reliable weather radar to safely do my job, and keep my team safe. I would be rushing to prepare with not enough time, without this app. With it, I've been able to be prepared an hour or more in advance. It makes all the difference between me working in hazardous conditions, or me heading indoors, especially in the event of lightning. I couple this with The Weather Channel app to keep my team and I aware of what each shift, and each hour will bring us.

  • infuriating

    by DC_B

    i think it is atrocious that you would put a red banner across the bottom of the page and force people who have paid for the app to watch a mattress commercial.( it cannot be closed until complete.) Secondly, the multi location function does not work. the app will only store one.

  • Used to be great

    by veni.vidi.scribi.

    Looks like the dev ran out of ideas and is now just throwing a lot of visual junk into what was once an elegant interface. Examples: 1. Now you lose a big chunk of your window to a cheesy copy of Yahoo weather, but w/o 10 forecast. 2. You now have little yellow Disney-like stars all over your map, plus other unwanted pink icons that you can't shut off. 3. You have to watch a commercial before listening to the dev tell you about all of the new useless features stolen from other apps.

  • Severe Weather Alerts NOT working

    by *W*~*A*

    I paid extra for the Severe Weather Alerts for IPad Air and IPhone --- I do NOT receive the alerts! I have notified them SEVERAL times! Absolutely NO resolution!!! I depend on the Alerts. Come on, PLEASE resolve this issue and stop ignoring my requests!!!!!!!!

  • Pretty Good App!

    by Felt Shakes

    I would give this app 5 stars if not for the fact that it NO LONGER gives warnings, added to the fact that I have contacted the company now at least three times asking for a solution. They have not replied at all. As a paying customer of the "Pro" version, I would hope that they would show the courtesy of making an attempt to correct things and to AT LEAST proffer a reply, but instead, zippo. I have tried everything under the sun to enable the warnings to notify as they used to, but I have to rely on other apps to do so now. I've double and triple checked all of the settings, and everything is set properly. I have even reloaded the app twice, with no success. So, if you want a weather app that is going to sound warnings, I recommend any other app that has that feature. I also take away stars for poor, frankly non-existent customer service. Previously, I would have given this app five stars, now I give two. The graphics are improved over the previous version, but that is all I can say at this point that is good.

  • Excellent app

    by AlbernerTor

    I like this app a lot. An improvement would be having the radar animations run longer than 1 hour elapsed time. It's difficult to fully understand the movement of a storm over such a short time.

  • Great app

    This is my "go to" when I need to see what's going on weather wise . Very dependable!

  • Radar Pro? NOT

    by TheFoxyLady54

    Purchased this ap as we are experiencing a severe winter storm. Ap will not load the radar. Wasted good money on a useless application.

  • Best radar app!

    by Gigman911

    This radar is fantastic! You can zoom in or out, you can track the weather before it gets to you or after it leaves, lots of extras. Got the pro version and I'm always prepared. Thanks MyRadarPro!

    The radar and weather forecasting are the best. I will never use the weather channel again!

    An excellent App. Accurate and real time A must for people who travel and also want reliable clear weather information at home

  • Great app

    Great app I use it everyday

  • First rate

    by f.remington

    I use this on my ipad and iPhone. Must have weather app.

  • Very good app

    by A320av8r

    As a professional pilot, I use this app very often. Great for flight planning. I put in my flight number and as soon as the flight plan is filed my routing is displayed graphically. Shows SIGMETS and AIRMETS too. Worth the price to drop the ads and just get the information you need. I live near the east coast so the hurricane tracker add on is great. Overnighting in tornado alley, I like having the weather alert add on for added safety.

  • Great radar app

    by Bsmith4000

    This app has a great radar vie that works better than most other weather programs. The app shows your current location and is easy to expand outward to view a larger area

  • My Radar

    by Cargokitten

    I like the app. Love the overview and the 5 day weather forecast

  • Great app

    by opy0929

    two thumbs-up

  • Great

    by Matlock Perkins

    Great app

  • My first choice for radar view

    by XSAir

    ... and the weather alert feature is very useful as well. I travel quite a bit and the fact that I get storm warnings for my current location with that terrible screeching "Public Service Announcement" klaxon has been very useful several times. More importantly, the comfort I find in knowing that my family has the same service wherever they may be. Tornado warnings on your hip? What a fantastic feature! The aviation layer accurately describes both sigmets and airmets. This app has become an essential to my regular weather analysis.

  • Great radar app

  • Great Radar App ...

    by Jim-n-Susan

    This is a good app to see the current radar. It should be updated though to differentiate between rain, sleet, and snow.

    by Factory Rat 66

    I do really use this app a lot , it's worth the money . Not sure why there is so many 1 stars ? Maybe they don't know how to use it :)

  • Boss

    by UW Hwt

    Nice app. Was difficult to sort through the options and differentiate as several use the same mapping. This is still my go to spot if I want to see what is beyond the horizon.

  • Great

    Never have a problem, one of the best weather apps

  • I love this app

    Being a professional truck driver , I need to know the road ahead of me and this app keeps me safe . Thank you for this great service

  • Great App!

    by Bdillard

    We are avid boaters. Mover our boat from Ft Pierce to the Keys each year for month of July. Our boat has the latest radar technology (48" Garmin HD)....this little app is great for look out past the range of our on board radar... and tells us whats cooking off the Bahama Bank if were off shore fishing. Works every time....its a 10! Don't leave home without it if you are a outdoor sports enthusiast! Bad Dog/ Orl/Ft Pierce

  • Awesome! Love it!

    by TheHoek

    Best app for the money - the warning upgrade is very nice - easily worth the one-time fee. Always works!

  • Radar. Roughly.

    Slow to load too often, and no "type" of precip identification.

  • Nice graphics

    by Wi-dieter

    Nice graphics, but can't get warnings to alert me when I bought the option.

  • Great

    by Cslinker

    Great app, perfect weather app. Use it every day.

  • Best weather app

    by HOYA246

    By far the best weather app for someone that is outside all the time. This is a must for anyone that needs to see whats coming their way. They have a cloud layer that shows you when its overcast and drizzle while most others make it look sunny and clear. You move the cursor over any city and can get their 5 day forecast immediately on the display. Temps are good if you look at it from farther above. Dont see ads or any prob with aviation layers either. Dont waste your $ on anything else

    This app is indispensable at the handlebars of a motorcycle. Has kept me dry and out of harms way on more trips than I can remember.

    by Jetson60

    I have several weather map apps but I believe this one is by far the best.

  • Good

    by Peter B Smith

    Overall a good program, though I agree with the previous reviews comments about the aviation overlay, nearly useless, so I don't use this app for that information.

  • Excellent, clear, reliable

    by Michael Driver

    All around basic best weather app.

  • Very reliable app

    by Poodleshoes

    I have had this app for a while, and it really like it. I find it to be very reliable and easy to use. Well worth the money.

  • Great app

    by K31owner

    Has a reasonable amount of features whilst still providing above average information to the user, though it goes without saying that having that the pro version should have all features available rather than a select few extras, a price change to cover the extra features would still keep the pro app price to a reasonable amount.

  • Great app

    by SRBrad

    This a great app to have in central Indiana. Love watching storm move over and around us.

    by 10pinblitzer

    Found I am referring to this site quite often To see how close bad weather is. Pretty good heads up. Enjoy the hurricane alerts. I do wish the site would show bad weather events world wide. I would have liked to see the cyclone track for the Phillipine and India events
