Ratings and Reviews
Overpriced and Outdated
The idea of Hail Recon is better than the actual performance behind the app. You would think with the amount of money it cost to subscribe to Hail Recon that they would put more money into development within their app to improve it/update it but they haven’t. The app feels like it belongs on my iPhone 3G; definitely not my
Unfortunately, given the limited amount of development for apps like this, I will say it’s the best of the bunch, unfortunately..

Best Hail app!
I love the Hail Recon app! It is the app for Interactive Hail Maps so you must buy a subscription but it is totally worth it and gives way more information than the free Hail apps which is great if you’re in the storm restoration industry. I love that I can pull any hail date in my area based on a specific address or broad area. Their data base goes back to 2011 also. Being able to use Hail recon for canvassing and tracking my salesmen’s progress. Customer service is great too, everyone is very helpful and friendly and always answers the phone even after hours.
