Great App!

Very Accurate, but I have suggestions. It's supposed to provide useful info for pilots. I really appreciate the inclusion of the fire locator function so I can tell smoke clouds by wind direction. However, VOG and Saharan Desert Dust also would be pertinent info. I'm not a pilot, but as a person who doesn't have breathing problems unless exposed to a trigger, I'd be willing to pay extra to get fire smoke clouds, VOG, and Saharan Dust mappers so I know when the clouds reach my area and when to wear a mask or stay indoors and change my air filter after the condition passes. It would probably be best to toggle this info so as not to overcrowd the map. Also nice would be a show of the jet-streams, fronts, high pressure systems like the Bermuda High that are pertinent to hurricane tracks, and dry air and moist air indicators to see whether fronts are coming in wet or dry. The dumbed down weather nowadays rarely shows these indicators that people used to rely on to predict the weather themselves (often better than the meteorologists). If you already have this for purchase, please let me know, or consider adding.

Old Radar Loop, 60% accurate, crashes etc

The “live radar” loop runs 2 hours ~20 mins past time. The will rain or storm times graph & time feature is wrong 60% of the time. I have my home marked with a star ( it only allows me to 1 star location tho) Worst is it gives me weather, alerts & warnings for a town 15 + miles away, in a different county that gets different weather & warnings. Ugh. When we were traveling and hit bad weather it was a worthless app. It kept kicking me back home 400+miles then kept crashing all cause I was trying to pull weather from my current location. It started draining my battery, freezing, unavailable data, crashing. If I’m home in my marked Location the app never freezes, crashes, etc. My husband uses a NOAA app (free) and I thought I was downloading the same one he has. No this one is horrible compared to the one he uses. The one he uses gives him current road conditions/warnings/accidents/ radar etc as he’s traveling and actually shows the town we live closest to (3 miles) correct county & he has locations (stars) marked all over the place. The (free) NOAA app he uses didn’t have a melt down when we were out of town or traveling and worked great.. I’m uninstalling this app and looking for the app my husband uses..Idk why so many different NOAA apps are available but lessons learned they are not all equal. The one he uses offers upgrades but the free version works good & has adds just like this one.

Hey there; you definitely shouldn't be getting an old radar loop, our radar is among the most real-time out there based on the way we process the stream of radar data. I'd love to try to dive into this a bit further with you to try to figure out what's up! If you're up for it, hit me up directly via email to feedback at myradar.com - my name's Andy - we can drill into the problem a bit to see what's up! MyRadar DOES allow you to mark as many locations as you'd like to place, so something else seems to be up, there!

I Miss the Old Storm app!!

Is there a way to see the future radar like the old Storm app? Is that in the premium packet because my radar ends 10 mins before the actual time & I want to know the forecast radar for the next hour. Also, if I press on a fire icon & read about it, when I go bk to the map, the time on the animation slider becomes 8 hours off. I don’t think the actual radar changes. I only know that I have to close & reopen the app to get the time back to ending 10 minutes before the actual time. This makes me wonder if I can trust the accuracy of this app. Plus, it’s been raining here nonstop for 6 hours but the radar shows periods of no rain. It’s also really annoying when the slightest tap or zooming in on the map will start changing the cities up above because of the crosshairs. And when I swipe left, or right to scroll through my favorite cities, nothing happens- it won’t scroll through the cities even though the stars are highlighted. I miss being able to zoom in & see exactly where it’s going to be raining & being able to chose between 1 hour or 5 hours in the future & clicking on the storm cells & find out the speed & the danger associated with each one, as I could in the old Storm app. It truly was the best weather app out there! I will change my 2 star rating if I can find the future radar.

Hey there! In actuality, each radar station takes up to 10 minutes to complete a full 360 sweep of its area, so while we do display the most current radar available, the data is going to be anywhere from 5 to 10 minutes old either way - we just choose not to fudge the timestamps like some other apps do. As for the times on the animation slider, that bug should be fixed by now. If you're still experiencing these bugs, please reach out to me directly via email to feedback at myradar.com - my name's Andy - I'd like to dive into this further!
