Great app and getting better with every release!

I’ve been using this app for a while now. Originally, I was just looking for a way to view NHC images easily on mobile. Their web page isn’t the greatest on a mobile browser. When I found this app, it was exactly that. Not many features at that point, but it worked well and was easy to navigate. Basically, it just had the images along with a radar. Every release since then has improved the app and there is now so much interesting information.

If you live in an area where paying attention to hurricane forecasts is important, there isn’t a better app!

Developer Response ,

Wow, thank you for the great review and I’m glad you are enjoying all of the new features.

EBallon ,

Ok...not great.

This app is marginally better than going to the NOAA website. Push notifications are nice. Satellite page loads all of the loop images before displaying. What if i don’t want the loop? I have to wait for all the images to load? What if i have a slow connection? The interactive map is beta quality in my opinion. It takes forever to update; you need the eyes of a five year old to read the minuscule fonts on the storm. Oh, you can zoom in and read it just fine....that is until it updates then back to the fonts for ants. Tapping on the storm does nothing; does not bring up any info. I would pay $20 to get Hurricane Pro or an equivalent app back. So far I have found nothing that even comes close. Some features in the latest version of this app may be worth $2 for some. For me only because nobody can seem to put out anything better.

Developer Response ,

Hi EBallon, a lot has changed since Sep 3, 2018. The latest update (1.6.8) has addressed all of your previous feedback. There are new satellite imagery viewing features, including the option to only view the latest image, rather than the entire animation as you mention. There is a new Interactive Storm map feature that has significantly faster load times, has font that is easy to read, and allows for tapping on the various forecast tracks. Please take a look at the updates and let me know what you think.

Lastly, please consider editing your review to reflect the most recent app version, as your review relates to Version 1.1.6, which is almost 2 years old. Thank you!

New user to this app

We live in the midwest, own 2 houses in St. John, USVI. We were hit hard 2 years ago and have been using the NHC NOAA website daily during hurricane season. Just found this app today. I like the different map views. They provide quick and easy differentiation to multiple aspects. Also works well over the mainland. I would like to see these maps in action for the next official hurricane. I had no issues whatsoever giving 2 bucks to the store. 2 suggestions: Larger Atlantic overview if possible. All these storms originate from the African coast and I couldnt see that area very well; also it might provide a larger picture if the app would rotate to landscape view when i turn the device sideways. Thank you to the developer for all the work you have invested.

Developer Response ,

Hi DaWaKKaR, just wanted to check in because your review was written about a year ago and the app has changed quite a bit in 2020. At your earliest convenience, please update to Version 1.6.8 and let me know what you think.

Lastly, please consider editing your review to reflect the most recent updates.

Thank you!
