Ratings and Reviews
Has kept us well-informed since Hurricane Irma
I use this app daily during Florida hurricane season. I’ve downloaded it to both my iPad and Galaxy phone and it is absolutely the best. My wife has it on her iPhone and it works well there too.
Tons of graphics that are updated several times a day. Whenever there is an update, you can allow your phone to sound an alert that sounds like a gust of wind. Awesome prediction graphs that combine multiple models to not only estimate storm path but also storm intensity.
Thanks to the National Hurricane Center in combination with Hurricane Tracker, we were able to evacuate our home in Key Largo well in advance of Irma.
I have recommended this app. to all of my friends.
Great info, awful app
This app gets points for including the information that I need, and more. But the usability and visual design of the app itself are tragic. The storms that you want to follow are buried under “mystery meat navigation”, where you have to guess the storm’s current strength to be able to find it. Once you find it, the charts are also buried under mystery meat navigation. And they’re divided into three categories so that you’re forced to interact with the app to navigate forward and back, forward and back, just to see them all. Visual design is subjective and I don’t want to insult someone who obviously worked hard on it, but let’s just say that it’s the opposite of current minimalist, modernist design trends. These things start to really grate on your nerves when there is a storm near you and you need to check frequently for updates. If I could find an app with similar information and better usability then I would switch in a second.
Not very helpful in Irma
Our community just lived through Hurricane Irma -- we have much to be thankful for. And I used this app to help provide info about the hurricane quite intensely over the past two weeks. But when I needed it the most the past five days, it became difficult! Once I went into the app to check out anything, I could not get back out to the home page to explore other items/features. The only thing I could do want totally shut my iPad down for a re-boot, and then open the app again -- and it would work until I left the home page to check out some details, and then I would have to do it all over again. I finally had to ignore this app and use others to cobble together the info I needed to manage a sizeable community of persons impacted by this hurricane. FYI -- I use this app on my iPhone SE and the latest iPad Pro 12.9. I loved this app ... so sorry to have to write this review but it didn't work at all. Thank you.
