Wow this is the best thing out their! It's really cool it updates every 10 seconds or five seconds for lightning but it's really cool especially if you want to see severe storms and lightning for free without paying the $20 for some other radar maybe a little better but just get this because it is really cool!

Almost great

Almost everything works as advertised except the "add your location" part. I can't put my town in, because it isn't i the database, and even using my phone position, it has dropped my 15 miles away in a different state. the graphics and update rate look like exactly like what I was hoping for, but it can't warn me about lightning within 5 miles if it thinks I am 15 miles away from where I really am. Oh, and though it won't look up an actual address, it will let you put in a town name. Just the name. Type in "Milford" and there is a flag to delineate what country you are in, but not the state. those are a lot of Milfords to try...

Lack of options is a bummer

This app is quite useful, only problem, is distance is hard-set to KM and I am in America, so have no practice with the metric system. Would really be helpful if you could add a feature to toggle between km and miles. Also, it would be helpful to be able search for and add multiple locations to receive updates about. Home, work, schools, family’s locations- aren’t always in the same area the gps is guessing your at.
