App Reviews

  • Location tracking bummer

    By Scall0way
    Nice to see radar, and listen to my local radio station. I hate that the location tracking feature choices are only ALWAYS or NEVER. Most of my apps that need a location offer an option of ONLY WHEN USING APP and this is what I always choose. I don't need or want any apps killing my battery life by constantly polling my location when I'm not using them, only when I'm using the app. Since this app doesn't offer that my only choice is to select NEVER which sort of defeats usability features of this app.
  • Requires location data

    By C to the L
    If you don’t have Location Access turned on it’s pretty useless except for the map. You ought to be able to pick your location (or home station) without using location services. Also, only location options are Never and Always and I really want the “While Using the App” option to be enabled. Maybe this is an error because the prompt implies that’s what you may be setting.
  • Notifies but radar and map problem

    By Pdk754
    Wrote a review in August. Four months later, same problems! I get notifications when lightening, thunder, storms are nearby. When I open the app, the map rarely loads over the city I'm in. The radar shows the map the same way. Many times, it either doesn't play, or it's playing up to half an hour ago. Not recent. Worked for a while after last update. Problems are all back again.
  • Works Great with One Exception

    By Bill135786545
    When location is turned to Always and my local radar (Melbourne) is selected the Melbourne radar appears for about a minute, then the current location icon turns grey and the local radar turns back to the default (Jacksonville). This only occurs on iPad.
  • Radar Hardly Works

    By ktownwaterboy
    The app is handy in some ways. It gives a very accurate account if lightening is in your area. Don't use it for radar tho. It usually never loads and when you try to play the animation it just sits there. Could be a good app, but needs lots of work
  • Don't download

    By DarknessTigerpaw
    First, you must sign away your life to a TOS contract then the app can't figure out where you are (I'm in Florida not Africa) and it doesn't give you the weather where you are. Non stop advertising ruins everything. Don't bother downloading. Deleted
  • Very useful

    By BriRunning
    A must have app for any Floridian looking for real time storm and lightning warnings
  • Undependable

    By Pop a top "unltd"
    When I load this app it's very slow and half the time such as today, it's raining all around with storm warnings. This app shows clear skies all over. The tornado boxes pop up but the map shows all clear.
  • A real battery killer

    By TallyChip
    This app constantly runs your GPS, even when it's not in use, greatly reducing your battery life. There's no need for such a design.
  • Privacy and battery life please!

    By acrisis
    Another app that requires ALWAYS ON location sharing, instead of while using the app ... Which means you get to follow me around the country and while draining down my battery in the process and eating up some of my limited data. Feeds and stations show up blank, likely due to me opting out of location sharing. There should be a manual location option as well as on demand WHILE USING.
