global storms provides the latest severe weather information including:
- hurricanes, typhoons and tropical storms in the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian oceans
- worldwide animated satellite views
- the latest worldwide marine information
- the ultraviolet index

Information in the app is courtesy of various open government sources as indicated in each section.
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
There is an auto-renewing subscription option within the app to track worldwide tropical cyclones, typhoons, hurricanes and other global weather hazards, and comprehensive ocean conditions forecasts for the Atlantic and Pacific oceans.
Development of global storms is funded in part by ads, which can be removed by selecting the monthly auto-renewing subscription option "Remove Ads" from the app's settings menu. Removing ads also provides access to other premium content and features.
The subscription price of 0.99 USD (in your local currency) will be charged to your iTunes account at confirmation of purchase and, for each renewal, within 24 hours prior to the end of the current month.
You can cancel the subscription at any time through your iTunes account settings, but you must do so at least 24 hours before the end of the current month to avoid being charged, and ads will show again at the start of the subsequent month.
Updated for iOS 14.

Disengenuous - beware
I was astonished to find that the app does NOT follow its own settings...when you first set it up, you are given three choices as a setting:
(1) Never use your location
(2) Use your location only while using app
(3) Always use your location
Well, I chose (2), because I thought it only fair that an application might need your location info while you are using it, so that it runs more efficiently or better, etc.
However, after I left the application - stopping it, I noticed that I still have a banner running at the top of my screen which says,”NOAA Now is Actively Using Your Location.
I went to the website to the privacy information located at the bottom of the page, and was informed that the company that runs and oh AAA now does not knowingly pass your personal information on to anyone. That being said, if that is the case then why does it need to run in the background, even when you have left the application and closed it? Because what it is telling you is not actually what it does. For that reason I am uninstalling this application and sending a notice to the Better Business Bureau about the company’s misrepresentation of its product.
Caveat emptor - let the buyer beware (even though this application version it’s free)
This app used to be awesome (especially the hurricane tracker), even with ads...but now, when it’s opened, you are given the option to buy and go ad-free, or to continue with ads...only you are now inundated with ads. Every single time you go to a new screen, an ad pops up and there’s no way to close it....EVERY. TIME. So you wait 10-15 seconds for it to close on it’s own and/or give you the option to close the ad...nothing happens so you have to minimize the app and open it back up for it to move on to the next screen...nobody has time for that in a weather emergency. So much for the “option” to go ad-free...no thanks...<delete>
