One of the best

I too used this app for years before the Weather Channel bought it. I also wondered why they felt the need to strip it down and change everything. However, that was then, nowadays it is arguably the best storm tracking and info app on IOS. The detailed information you get about the storm when you have Storm Tracks turned on is fantastic. All you have to do is to touch the storm center icon and a screen of probably 2 dozen attributes about the storm pops up. As I have quite a few rental cars on my lot, I find the hail percentage and hail size the most interesting.

With that, though, since the last IOS update (I think) the pop up of the storm detail analysis doesn’t work. It pops up and immediately goes back down. Simultaneously, on the right side, a white rectangle that covers the entire right 1/4 of the screen pops up and goes right back down. I have tried it on my iPad Pro 12.9, my iPad Mini 4 and my iPhone 8+ and it fails the same way on all three. I have tried disabling ad blockers, changing font sizes and literally a dozen other tests but not one has made the slightest change. I hope this is something they can fix quickly as it is their best feature and the main reason I pay the yearly subscription.

One Big Flaw

5 MARCH 22 The app is now working and showing the Storm Attributes. At least many of them. Glad it's back to functioning well. Thanks to the Storm Radar team.

I had the previous editions of this app and liked it very much. There are many great features of is app but the “storm attribute”tables opened by clicking on the cell icons were the best for me. There was an abundance of information available on them and I didn’t need to spend a lot of time going from radar to Meso analysis sites to get the info. So I was happy to this version. After I downloaded the app (onto my iPad Air 2 with OS 12.4.1) I immediately opened a cell icon and encountered a major problem. The attributes table opened, for a second, and then disappeared. Now without this feature I can get what is available free on most other radar shows apps. I am waiting and hoping this bug will be fixed in an update but I am not holding my breath. As a major feature I would have thought it would have been a priority. I am very disappointed! UPDATE: 29 OCT 2019 After sending 5 or 6 emails & Feedbacks I have not heard one word from anyone. Not one response. They have my money and that’s apparently all that matters. The only reason I use this app is the cell attributes tables. And I cannot use them at all cause they won’t open longer than a second. It’s sad when they can’t even try to do something about a problem. I was disappointed up I’m angry.

A Strong Storm Arising

Like many of you, at first glance I thought what a letdown and a waste the new Storm App is compared to the older version. Why would anyone put out a newer version that is inferior to their previous product?

The new Storm Radar is an excellent app once you learn to navigate the new system. Just pulling down on the temperature banner provides you with much more in-depth weather data, probably more than the average person cares to see. Wondering about the weather in another place? Just tap on the map and the weather banner for that location appears, no need to search the city name. Need more detail, just slide downward on the banner and get your information. Monitoring storm systems? Add Storm Tracker in the Radar layers section at the bottom of the page. This will provide you Storm tracking data and by tapping on the storm marker, you will be provided all of the storm detail utilized by the meteorologists! The radar layers at the bottom of the page allows you to customize the data and alerts that you wish to receive.

My daily job is heavily impacted by the weather and storms in general. Also, in my duties as a volunteer firefighter I monitor and depend upon accurate data for fire conditions and tracking storms. The Storm Radar tool is one of the top apps on my phone today. Load it and play with it to discover the many options available to monitor the weather the way you choose.
