Fun app

This app is great for decoding NOAA faxes from coastal CG stations but also creates artistic images when attempting to decode from NOAA satellite transmissions

High expectations....

I had high expectations. The reality is that it is a great idea, but does not really work in real life. Aside from other noises, after everything is quite it still bring a very poor quality, non synchronized fax view that is useless.
I wish it would work as I wanted it as a backup for my HF SSB computer weather fax program.
I gave it two stars with hope that sometime in the future it will be tunes and synced better

It works great!

Just like other modes of downloading HF weather fax, reception is everything. This app is so uncomplicated! I had better luck using a pair of earphones lying near my iPad mic.
