  • NOT Apple Watch Compatible

    By BigWLindale
    Read an article that stated this app has Hi-Def radar for Apple Watch. Review shows many screen shots of Apple Watch with the app running. Sadly and $1.99 later I learn it’s not Apple Watch compatible.

  • Travel Planning Tool

    By Boomer Lead
    I drive and camp a lot, and I often weather info for my *exact* location *right now.* This app lets me know when rain will begin and end. Seeing storms approach on radar let’s me know when to get off the road and take shelter. Always helpful, sometimes a valuable warning system.

  • Waste of money

    Paid for the Pro version. Went to look at radar, can only see past not future unless you pay $0.99. I already know what happened. I want to see what’s happening. I’ll be requesting a refund.
