The online satellite is my go-to

I downloaded this to give it a try. The SSEC website is bookmarked on my Mac as I think it gives the best composite satellite images available. On my iPhone 7 this app takes a long time to download the still images to play a time sequence and after the images are loaded and just starting to stream together...it crashes. Same result on visible, water vapor, etc. Nice try. I can always use the browser on the phone and look the web versions. Thanks guys.

Slow on IPad

This software seems to work but it’s screen draw mechanism leaves a lot to be desired. If one zooms in to a region the software downloads ALL the images and then shows the region of interest (ROI). This makes the map drawing slow and as a result completely unusable. It would be better to figure out the ROI and then only download and draw the overlay images in that ROI.
