Ratings and Reviews
One of the best
I too used this app for years before the Weather Channel bought it. I also wondered why they felt the need to strip it down and change everything. However, that was then, nowadays it is arguably the best storm tracking and info app on IOS. The detailed information you get about the storm when you have Storm Tracks turned on is fantastic. All you have to do is to touch the storm center icon and a screen of probably 2 dozen attributes about the storm pops up. As I have quite a few rental cars on my lot, I find the hail percentage and hail size the most interesting.
With that, though, since the last IOS update (I think) the pop up of the storm detail analysis doesn’t work. It pops up and immediately goes back down. Simultaneously, on the right side, a white rectangle that covers the entire right 1/4 of the screen pops up and goes right back down. I have tried it on my iPad Pro 12.9, my iPad Mini 4 and my iPhone 8+ and it fails the same way on all three. I have tried disabling ad blockers, changing font sizes and literally a dozen other tests but not one has made the slightest change. I hope this is something they can fix quickly as it is their best feature and the main reason I pay the yearly subscription.
A Strong Storm Arising
Like many of you, at first glance I thought what a letdown and a waste the new Storm App is compared to the older version. Why would anyone put out a newer version that is inferior to their previous product?
The new Storm Radar is an excellent app once you learn to navigate the new system. Just pulling down on the temperature banner provides you with much more in-depth weather data, probably more than the average person cares to see. Wondering about the weather in another place? Just tap on the map and the weather banner for that location appears, no need to search the city name. Need more detail, just slide downward on the banner and get your information. Monitoring storm systems? Add Storm Tracker in the Radar layers section at the bottom of the page. This will provide you Storm tracking data and by tapping on the storm marker, you will be provided all of the storm detail utilized by the meteorologists! The radar layers at the bottom of the page allows you to customize the data and alerts that you wish to receive.
My daily job is heavily impacted by the weather and storms in general. Also, in my duties as a volunteer firefighter I monitor and depend upon accurate data for fire conditions and tracking storms. The Storm Radar tool is one of the top apps on my phone today. Load it and play with it to discover the many options available to monitor the weather the way you choose.
New Storm not as good as old Storm
Well the Weather Channel has now ruined a perfectly good app. Since they “remodeled” the Storm app into the new “Storm Radar” app it’s just not very good anymore. The layout is odd and not very intuitive, plus they changed one of the best things on Storm, the wind speed graphics. It was real easy to see the wind movement with many wind speed arrows, but now it is the occasional arrow and no movement, just a direction. No where near as useful. The radar is ok, but when you zoom in sometimes the rain/snow that was there disappears! Something is wrong there. The current weather info seems to be lacking a measure of precipitation in the last 24 hours, something that is pretty basic for weather information. After using this for several months (I would switch to another app, but they are all bad!), I’ve found it pretty flakey. Quite often the app just quits for no reason. Other times I try to move the map area and it takes 10-15 seconds for it to respond. I also do not like the radar to go into animation mode when I open the app and have configured it to not do that ... but it still does occasionally. This is all pretty sad given all the time they have had to work on this. Update, now they are pushing the “Pro” version and have some icons on the left side of the screen that are only active in the “Pro” version. Problem is they block the view on the iPhone, but you can’t get rid of them. Another annoying money grab ....
Developer Response ,
Hi Pmotz, thanks for taking the time to write. In order to continue providing the most advanced storm tracking, some of our map layers have been moved to our premium subscription service. Users with the free version of the app still have access to our most popular features, including the high definition 8 hour past-to-future radar and real-time rain alerts. We apologize for any issues you may be seeing in your app experience. You can actually help us diagnose and resolve issues by sending screenshots of the issues to firstname.lastname@example.org.
