Coverage Notes: If you live in a very-high-altitude town in Colorado (e.g. Fraser, Vail, Aspen), most likely this app will not meet your needs since radar beams get blocked by the tall mountains. Alaska coverage includes only the southern coastal areas, and does not include the Aleutian Chain. Cloud coverage does not include Alaska and Guam. Also, push-notifications for rain will not work reliably in Hawaii, Guam and Alaska. Aviation Sectional Charts are not available for Hawaii.

- This app is only useful for users in the US, including all 50 states and territories including Puerto Rico and Guam.

  • Almost Perfect

    by ThePicaroon

    If it had the ability to use my GPS location without the need to drop a pin, it would be perfect.

  • Excellent.

  • Perfect

    by Gumbo Gal

    Accurate and gives me peace of mind .Problem: My husband knows I have this app and NOW I am the predictor ,forecaster and all around weather "wife" I mean, really. This is my fault for grabbing the iPad or iPhone and giving him instant news. This is a great app!

  • Loads quickly in bad reception areas

    by alexaswell

    I use this on my iPhone as well as my iPad. The iPhone gets super crappy signal in the barracks - no calls in my room and sometimes text takes a few tries. This is one of the few apps I can get running on the phone with updated info in just a few seconds. On the iPad, I have a wifi signal, so I get to enjoy the map and radar features as intended. For just a few dollars, this app is awesome. I'd buy it again.

  • One of the best weather apps!

    by Jhart01

    If I was flying I sure would be using this app. The weather radar is not sufficiently collect data And displaying it. I ran up against another app. This app is seriously dragging behind.

  • JT

    by Jt9663

    Not worth the money. Go with Hi-Def Radar. The predictive radar and storm tracks have not been very accurate in the year I've worked with RadarCast.

  • What a mess...

    by Megan Kellis

    I got this app to track storms and tornadoes. It's ok for tracking regular radar things, but not much better than Weather Channel App. Also, it is VERY hard to navigate! 80% of the settings options are adds for other apps. The whole thing looks like a big cluttered mess. It's very frustrating. Not worth the money.

  • Awesome app !!!

    I can predict the local weather better than the pros on the news! I don't even bother watching them anymore!!

  • Up to the minute

    by PANAM007

    I check this everyday because the radio news isn't 100%

  • Not good in So. Calif

    by Kimjamul

    Rainfall radar is not accurate for the San Diego area. In recent months the app has become much less sensitive and radar doesn't show the lighter rainfall we typically depend on. Might be OK for severe weather, but not adequate for our lighter rainfall events. Intellicast app is much more accurate and useful for So Cal.

  • Great

    by nikshi

    I really like the radar images. However I am still learning the basis. I would live alert tone for dangerous conditions, that would Takeuchi review to the top!

  • Used to be good

    by ralvinklein

    Used to be accurate but it is raining/ snowing right now and there is nothing on the radar. I bought this and the previous radar (that no longer has support from this developer). I am very unhappy because I have invested more money on these apps than any other and frankly they're horrible now...
