Frequently crashes

The app has frequently crashed as of late. Difficult to impossible without a ‘CTD’ to animate, and moving the map around only works for a minute or two before the app closes out.

Best in-depth weather app available and FREE

The UW-Madison weather on the web is my go to site for satellite imaging of US weather with a entire range of customizing options to tailor my viewing experience to exactly what I need. Now this app I can use on my iPad is just as amazing and even more conveniently portable.

Best weather app for tracking the past storms and feature storms

Good app but needs updating for changing time and date it gets buggy and crashes would like to look at past hurricanes!
