Ratings and Reviews
Outstanding Field Guide app
Three reasons why this is a great app: 1)Cloudy Sky's immense educational values are equaled by it's easy use. 2) I have a number of resource books on cloud spotting and this app condenses a truly impressive amount of that information. 3) It's availability on an IPhone makes it a grand instrument to use frequently outside. I highly recommend this app.
I love this app! It has bugs, though...
Like the review, the app is absolutely fantabulous! I'm a teenaged meteorology geek and I say this app is perfect for what I want to record and know about clouds. I didn't know there were subspecies of clouds, like fractus and mamma. Then, there are the bugs. After my third cloud log in a row, it has a tendency to crash. I have to close the app and turn my phone off and on (but whatever, I'm not that lazy). Then when I log the clouds, it will choose the first subspecies when I specifically tap on the camera for a different type of cloud, so I have to go and change it all over again. But overall, five definite stars because this app rocks. It's so helpful to my dream job (which is, of course, a meteorologist) and it helps you predict weather without a radar (looking at you, weather person on TV!), so yay on that :).
Fantastic--more than I imagined
I've had this app for awhile now-- happy to have found it for my bit of interest in clouds. The wonderful thing is that I keep finding out how much it offers-- great photos that help one see distinctions, easily accessed info about cloud types (and subtypes) including helpful info such as the likelihood of precipitation from each type. Really an excellent, smooth app, so glad the developer keeps it going!
