Highest rated top 5 weather application.
Thanks to everyone for making MyRadar so successful, with over 50 million downloads!
MyRadar is a fast, powerful, easy-to-use weather app that displays animated weather radar around your current location and to quickly show what weather is coming your way. Just start the app; your location pops up with animated live radar, with radar loop lengths of up to two hours. This basic functionality provides the quickest way to get a snapshot of the weather on-the-go, and it's what has made MyRadar so successful over the years. Check your phone and get an instant assessment of the weather that will impact your day.
One of the most useful features in MyRadar is the ability to provide advanced rain alerts; our patent-pending process for predicting hyper-local rainfall is the most accurate in the industry. Instead of having to check the app all the time, MyRadar will send you an alert up to an hour in advance as to when the rain will arrive at your current location, down to the minute, including details on intensity and duration. These alerts can be a life saver when you're on-the-go and don't always have time to check the weather - our systems will proactively do the work for you and let you know in advance before the rain hits.
In addition to the live radar, MyRadar has an ever-increasing list of weather and environmentally-related data layers that you can overlay on top of the map; our animated winds layer shows a breathtaking visual representation of both surface winds and winds at the jetstream level; the frontal boundaries layer shows high and low pressure systems as well as frontal boundaries themselves; the earthquakes layer is a great way to stay on top of the latest reports on seismic activity, completely customizable as to severity and time; our hurricane layer allows users to stay on top of the latest tropical storm and hurricane activity throughout the world; the aviation layer overlays AIRMETs, SIGMETs and other aviation-related data, including the ability to track flights and display their IFR flight plans and paths, and the "wildfires" layer allows users to stay abreast of the latest fire activity around the United States.
MyRadar also has the ability to send weather and environmental alerts, including alerts from the National Weather Service, such as Tornado and Severe Weather alerts. A new feature introduced in this version of MyRadar includes the ability to receive alerts based off of Tropical Storm and Hurricane activity; you can configure the app to send you an alert any time a tropical storm or hurricane forms, or is upgraded or downgraded.
In addition to the free features of the app, additional upgrades are available, including real-time hurricane tracking - great for the start of hurricane season. The hurricane tracker provides additional data above and beyond the free version, including the cone of probability for tropical storm/hurricane forecast tracks, and it also includes a detailed synopsis from the National Hurricane Center. The premium upgrades also include the professional radar pack, which allows greater detail of radar from individual stations. Users can select individual radar stations around the US, select the radar tilt angle, and also change the radar product being displayed, including base reflectivity and wind velocity - great for experienced weather buffs looks to stay on top of possible tornado formation.

Ratings and Reviews
This is a really good app for people who check the weather a lot. The only problem is that the presentation is not as simple as it could be and so there is a learning curve for using it. But once you've suffered through that for about a week it's really quite good. Pro's: it provides nice graphs so that you can see trends over time, and, of course, radar views so that you can see geographical trends. When compared to two other apps that I use, it seems to be on the more accurate side. Neg's: it's difficult to get a quick answer to the question "What % chance that it's going to rain when I plan to do such and such today?" I know it's a difficult question but it's extremely practical so it's best answered with a time trend line. Yes, you can get that, but you have to do several swipes and dig down a bit. The widgets don't seem to work all the time (at least for me) - that would be the best place to provide that answer but I haven't figured out how to do that (if it's even possible). Next best would be to have the option for it to show up in the summary at the top of the main view (that shows the temperature trend line, and minimally useful cloud icons). It is a good sign that the app recently came out with a travel feature, which I'm looking forward to testing. In summary, I'm liking it a lot so far but still getting used to it.
If 10 stars were possible this App would get it!
First off, out of the hundreds of Apps I have downloaded and used, I have only taken the time to review one and that was on a popup prompt to do so. This review I am writing without being prompted. This App is that good. I have downloaded several other “top” weather Apps of which many want monthly subscriptions for basic functions. This App blows them all out of the water or maybe I should say the weather. It is so easy to use and extremely intuitive. I breezed around it setting up my notifications, views, and generally orientating myself. Visually it's incredible and provides a myriad of choices concerning appearance (so many layers available) and alerts. Speaking of alerts, there are numerous choices that are easily customizable. There is even one for major earthquakes. Living in California, I left that alert on. The interactive portion of the App is flawless on my iPad air. There is a global view, which I find simply amazing. So far this App has not only exceeded my expectations but has set the bar for other apps to follow. Hats off to the developer for a stand-up job. To those reading this review, don't just take my word for it. Download it now and check it out for yourself. It is free and you would be doing a disservice to yourself if you didn't.
Best Radar App!
I have been using this app for years, and only this weather app, no others. The reason is: reliability, accuracy, pinpoint location, (it moves with me from my house to everywhere I go via my iPad without doing a thing), and most importantly the weather alerts. I love getting the drop downs that tell me when it’s going to rain and whether it will be light, heavy or moderate, and for how long, and it is ALWAYS spot on. Very useful to me. The most important alert for my area is tornadic activity, which alerts me whether or not I am on my iPad. It serves as a great weather radio! The alert sound is loud, and living alone and not having a basement, it lets me know whether or not I need to take shelter. I am so happy that you added the world now instead of just the US. I can see exactly what the weather is like in Norway where my brother lives. I also can let my mother and sister, who both live in other parts of the state, whether or not they need to take shelter. I have actually done it and it is a lifesaver. I love the options available for which alerts you would like to get. When the wildfires are happening, I always turn that on so I can keep track of my relatives in California/Nevada, etc.
Thank you and keep up the great work! AMAZING app. Tried all the others. No comparison.
