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.

I check this app frequently because it’s very reliable and I like that it moves so you can gauge the track of a storm. I often send my friends screen shots of the weather over them because for whatever reason they still haven’t gotten this app. Why ladies? It’s so convenient to have. I walk everyday and like to check this app before venturing out. Plus it pin points your location so you can readily see at a glance where you are in relation to oncoming weather. Good to know if you’re flying what to expect. I like to monitor hurricanes because I have sisters who live on the East Atlantic Coast and the West Coast of Florida and you have access to the entire world’s weather if you care to check. Living in the heart of Ohio we get all kinds of weather and I can see when it’s coming or going to track south or if I’m going to get clobbered with severe weather or light rain. As a gardener I consult the app daily to gauge my watering needs. I can zoom out to see where fronts are located and know in advance if severe weather is headed my way. You also get the temperature at your current location. It’s just so practical to have. And there are no ads. Maybe an unobtrusive banner on the bottom. It’s the greatest app. You should definitely get it! One of my faves!
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.
Developer Response ,
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!
Apple Watch Necessity
I use this on my apple watch every day, it is better than the apple weather app in my opinion because of three things. 1, it has a map of your area as well as a forecast written out in english instead of just symbols and numbers, if you like the simplicity of symbols and numbers, that is still available too! 2, on the watch face, with both apps you get the current temperature, as well as the high and the low. one extra very important symbol is the current weather, a rainy storm cloud or a shining sun, pretty helpful to check without ever opening the app on your watch/phone. 3, the layout design is a little easier to read, apples watch weather app shows a circle dial and is very weird to read if you aren’t used to it. MyRadar has an easy to read linear scroll that isn’t very hard to read, you just scroll down hour by hour, plus you get to use the little dial on the side of your watch! 4, i will be honest, apple weather has MyRadar beat on the watch in one category, weather for multiple cities. on MyRadar, you can check multiple cities on your phone, but not your watch. anyway overall i think MyRadar is a better corner widget than apples weather at least on the watch. 5/5
