  • Does what I would expect

    by EyeHunter

    This site provides me everything I want from a weather site. The radar is spot on. Thanks.

  • Mostly accurate

    by Gentle 51

    Works well most of the time, but funny how the lowest number for 24 hrs. was higher than the actual current temp. At least the current temp is accurate. Definitely a glitch in the software.

  • Great App!

    by bubb57

    Comes in real handy up here in snow country.

  • Awesome! Finally an app with real radar w a nation view!

    by PAldridge

    So many apps claim to have radar but it's sections of a radar in an grid area. Actual radar in any view you desire, including the nation is amazing!

  • Awesome

    by Get a life please

    This is the best, most accurate radar and weather app. It's look and feel is updated for iOS7. Worth the money of you're a weather enthusiast or just want to be in the know.

  • Silvermoon

    by Glock Doc

    Will be a great app once they solve the problem with it crashing while trying to find its current location.

  • Limited features

    by Deutritium

    Not useful for anything other than viewing satellite and radar images. If trying to view your own location, it zooms in so close that it becomes useless.

  • Great for radar. Not much else

    by Daniel E McCabe

    The radar is way better than the weather channel, but it really isn't good for anything else. No percentage chance of precipitation, or hourly weather. But the radar is top notch. Also, it bombards you with ads for other stuff, which is why I took off another star.

  • Love it. Easy app and accurate.

    by PapiNelson

    A nice, clean and easy app.

  • NOAA Weather

    by The Ol' Man

    An excellent weather app. I use it constantly to stay abreast of changing weather conditions.

  • Excellent

    by Titan326

    The whole family has it can you think about adding a sound alert like a noaa radio before the alert is read to get ones attention

  • Great app

    by Faith2one

    Awesome app.

  • All I need

    by Chattannooga

    Provides all the weather info I need for planning the day or for safe travel.

  • Save your money

  • Good layout with lots of information

    by Puffpuffpass_420

    Great job---covers everything!

  • Not worth the money

    by Red Gorrila

    This is not a good app. I compare the weather on the app and then go to the actual NOAA website and it's totally different. They should not have the NOAA name associated with this app. It will be raining outside and the app will say clear sky's. Definitely not reliable.

  • Has everything!

    by Lillabokmal

    Finally! I have found a weather app that includes everything I need. Multiple weather apps have left me disappointed and with a few less $. This one, however, includes a radar map, a 7 day and a 24 hr forecast, a hurricane tracker and weather alerts - all customizable. Also, I appreciate when apps tell you not only what the temperature is, but what it feels like. No more weather app shopping for me. Looking forward to using this daily.

  • Good app

    by Moneyspender197833

    Overall good radar app!!

  • Does what it does....

    by JTMlaw

    Nice app. Good for rain and hurricanes.

  • Great weather app

    by Virginia Liszewski

    Much better than the others.

  • A very good app as long as not IOS 7 version

    by Pigflipper1

    After trying several other so called "High Res" radar apps I have come back to this one. This app is right on the money is showing current and approaching storm fronts, especially winter wet weather conditions. The only problem I have had with this app is the IOS7 version does not seem to get along very well with IOS7 on my iPhone 5. Every time I used the IOS7 version of this app a popup box appeared telling to select the newer version which I did but the box kept reappearing. The box went away after I uninstalled the IOS7 version and went back to what appears to be the older version. Now it once again works as it should.

  • NOAA weather report

    by Tjmcbride

    Love the weather report at all times should have been a weather man

  • App can't find some cities

    by Bear1944

    I tried to locate the place my Mom is from. I've been there, but the app can't find it.

  • Great App

  • Excellent weather app

    by JWnSK

    I have several weather apps and this one is very good at giving me up to date information on a timely basis

  • Map can't identify my home

    by Judge

    It puts me in a city I do not live in and don't want to move to. Great otherwise.

  • Good

    by Bruce Flossic

    by Neil3

    Provides information (detailed maps) up front that distinguish it from other weather Apps

  • Great app

    by MB10902

    This is the most reliable radar app I have used. Never crashes. Never hangs. Always there when needed!

  • Know your weather

    by Flabioman

    I drive a lot for a living. I need to know what to expect. This app so far has out performed all other weather apps. I highly recommend this product.

  • Good App

    by 4DVikes

    This app is as good as any for tracking storms.

  • Part if my "morning "app" routine

    by Uncle*Bob

    I've always liked watching the weather. When Doppler Radar came out, I thought that was so cool. When I got my iPhone and learned I could have instantaneous Doppler on my phone anytime for anyplace in the USA!? Whoa!!

  • Great

    by KKncincy

    This works great. Loops that work!

  • Weather tool

    by SpecForce

    This is an excellent app. I was pleasantly surprised by all the different weather related things that it offers.

  • Works for me.

    by Turtle242

    Needed a simple weather app and this one works well so far.

  • Weather data provider is not available.

    by ososigma

    Weather data provider is not available. Why a weather app would show something like this??? It supposed to give the info that I need, not to tell me to try in a while!!! Fix it, get the info from the other apps, Do Something but don't tell me that I need to try in a while!!!!!!!!!

  • Very good

    by Kopa Promotions inc.

    Really good for jobs and recreatives activities App.

  • Great radar app

    by 9k Redline

    Quick simple app to check the radar. It's accurate and current all the time. Graphics are very good.

  • The best weather App

    by TheNatBee

    I have this App on both my iPhone and iPad. It works as it should on both. It is easy to configure. I am able to see the weather across the entire US in one quick snapshot because I have saved locations across the country. The weather alerts are real and accurate. Another super feature is NO ADS! I also like displaying my choice of data in the details - sunrise, sunset, humidity, wind speed, etc. Just an overall cool App.

  • Love it.

    by PapiNelson

    A nice, clean and easy app.

  • Waste of $$

    by Stace412

    It only tells what happened in the past - I was there I know what happened! So not helpful! I need to know what's on it way!

  • Best weather app ever

    by hapist8

    I have paid for or use up to 16 weather apps. From radar only, to weather only, and some, with both. I also have my own AcuRite weather station at my home. After this weeks horrible weather on the East Coast and having a daughter in Ohio, I really used this app a lot. It compares exactly with my weather station. I do think it could be a little more user-friendly but all in all it's the best app I have on my iPhone. Gadget Hapi Granny at 67 from Virginia

  • Excellent App

    by SRY100

    I tend to rely on this app for the best Doppler readings and warnings.

  • This is the weather app to have

    by whatever it takes!!!

    The app has been alerting me over the past week when nasty weather was coming. (Unlike the Yahoo weather app). Plus no ads! I'll be keeping this app on my iPad.

    I'm happy to see a pro version of this app. I really like the alerts and the new content over the regular version. I'd still love to see lightning strikes included in the data, but this is great!
