This helps to create you aware of the type of weather you will experience, ESPECIALLY in such a state as Florida! The weather can be unpredictable, and may be longer than expected. Therefore, this Storm will support (pun intended 😂) tremendously, and the alerts are definitely MUCH appreciated. Thank you and HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Nowhere near what the previous storm application was. It's been about a year since TWC took over and I am still disappointed. I still have the old application installed for my homescreen widget, and just want the fresh application had the same features. You broke something that didn't need changing.
Updating my review. My pro's are still the same, amazing radar, forecast beautiful accurate. For myself two things are needed. One is an option a half hour radar loop. Currently the minimum is 2 hours on HD. The second is zoom controls for simple one handed operation.
I really like this app. Normally I would purchase ad-free but TWC must be making a fortune from the ads since it's beautiful pricey to obtain rid of them and can only happen via subscription. I'll just endure the ads. It's not like it's my basic weather application (which I did pay for) - I only use it when there are storms in the area. Very amazing for that.
Please stop using the Google Play Zone APIs. I do not wish WiFi Scanning to be enabled, just to search a zone while inside your app. This is why Android device Zone APIs exist. Otherwise you enable Google to track us via WiFi Scanning which is a major privacy issue. Thank you for your hard work guys. This is a unbelievable app!
not good interface. Slow and glitchy graphics. Once Graphics finally load they are incomplete in a slight move of your finger has your traveling a thousand miles away. I currently use another app obtain updates less frequently but has a much more friendly user interface. really for me the largest thing is the map in her face. Very poorly done. Definitely not high resolution.
Now that Storm has offered a subscription based option to remove ads, Storm is my favorite weather app, along with Windy. Storm excels in its HD graphics, which is superior to any I've seen for an Android device weather app. A multitude of overlays provides the user with a detailed description of the current weather. I would love to see the addition of the 250mb jet stream over the US, and more information in general away from the surface (850, 500, 250mb).
Unbelievable application for the local radar. However, I want that "they" did not feel the need to send an urgent alert at 4AM, waking me up, every. single. day. this week to say it's going to be hot out later. YES. THIS IS SOUTH GA. IT IS NOW SUMMER. THE TEMP HAS NOT CHANGED FOR THE PAST WEEK, AND IS NOT EXPECTED TO DECREASE ANYTIME SOON. PLEASE STOP WAKING ME UP EVERY MORNING TO TELL ME IT'S HOT. Hold the "urgent" alerts to tornado warnings and severe storms, please.
Latest night, my family and I were traveling through Kansas in the middle of a tornado outbreak. of all of the weather apps on my phone, this one gave us the most useful information. I feel like the weather maps and active radar truly kept us safe. I would recommend this application a hundred times!
No status bar option or widget. No audible warnings like the previous Storm app. Still fails to meet promises created at begin of app. Basically being forced to leave zone on which is a battery drain. The radar lags method to much. WGN weather application performs better.
The application has potential however two problems prevent me from giving this a high mark. First, I hold getting notifications for an zone that I neither live or work. I have been all through the application and can search no setting to change this. I have the application set for my city, but I hold getting notifications for the wrong city. The second problem is the true time radar that often won't present the forecast of expected storm movement. Forecasts are useless if they can't stay up to date.
Best Storm Application I've tried thus far! Alerts in advance down to the min and always extremely accurate. Bonus---> Have not noticed any unusual glitching going on with phone after downloading as has happened with other downloads.
Decent application to see the past weather. The purpose of using something like this is to look into the future. The largest flaw is the future tracker. You can see a storm around the zone you live, but the second it goes into future time, the detail and radius of the storm become choppy and more unreliable. In other words, the storm says it'll split and red cells will turn to yellow, when in reality it's actually continuing onwards. Likewise, amazing to see the past, what's coming, but not the future.
I have used this application for more than a year. The application no longer gives current radar imagines. Today it is 30 mins lag time from current conditions. 30 MINUTES!!!! This application isn't terrible, but NOT CURRENT!!!! Goodbye and amazing riddance. You will not obtain a single cent out of me for this ?FREE? app. I just installed The Weather Channel app. and now I will remove this not good excuse of radar map application off my phone.
Has problem getting communication with my wifi. Other apps do not. Times in other time zones are presented as local time. For example, if I am looking at a zone in Georgia, but am actually in California, the time shown when cycling time is California time, not Georgia time. Also, the sunrise and sunset times for Eastern time when viewed from Pacific time are not correct.
I recently upgraded to the recent Samsung phone. I have been using Storm Radar for a year or so, I think it is a amazing app. But since reinstalling on my fresh phone, when I tap the actual zone weather, the everyday or hourly weather cycle is totally blank. I have reinstalled the application a couple of time over the past week to see if it would rectify the problem but it has not. I though the hourly weather prediction was amazing so I knew what the weather was going to be like when I finished my work day.
I like the other ver much better. This UI is not as friendly, very difficult to search things. UPDATE: It seems the radar photos progress in 5 min steps, however, the recent photos are usually more than 10-15 mins in the past. Need to see the recent photos sooner than this.
No distance rings like 25 miles, 50 miles etc. The HD radar refresh time indication is all over the place. One min it's behind by 5 then it goes to 15 mins behind then back to 5 then back 30. The storm distance projection times are all bunched up together when zoomed out, confusing and unreadable. If you wish to observe the radar for a zone you are not currently at but will be going to soon with a pin in place, you must view it with the screen partially covered by a grey box. Ott good.
Love this app. The only thing I would like to see changed is that NOW actually starts at the beginning instead of playing through time that has already elapsed. 😊 06/03/19 Just received a notification that your application is draining battery, how come this never happened before? hmm :(
used to love this app. now, the time stamps on storm tracks are broke when you zoom in and out, it doesnt hold updated even with unrestricted data usage on, 15 mins behind at all times. I hope this application gets fixed. It used to be awesome.
I can't obtain the application to stop playing future forecasted radar even though I set the future forecast mode to off. Also, there does not appear to be a high resolution IR color sat image....particularly useful for the tropics. would be better with links to the GOES 16.
This application is very related to the original storm application however does not present detailed info in the forecast section. For this reason I only give it three stars as opposed to the five stars that I gave the original storm app. If you like the fast graphical representation in forecasting then this application definitely provides that.
A lot easier to navigate and scroll around, than most other weather apps. I had a "real time rain aleart" it said it was gonna rain at 1:42, IT RAINED AT 1:42! A helluva lot more accurate than Weather Channel app, I always thought they all obtain the same service from National Weather Service?
if you know a small about radar you can predict weather with application 50x better then the news. saved me from latest min downpours and other weather that local weather idiots could not figure out. l coach and have successfully know rain would stop to have delayed begin and would be clear to finish game. people that give it one star for missing a feature or 2 are insaneit those features are not deal breakers . especially that the application is free . I use 3 water apps for 95% accuracy comparison.
I want that i could give this application a zero in stars. My small brother salw that it was going to thunder storm in the middle of the night. So fliped out and cryed. This application sucks soooooo much and i hate it soooooo much
radar photos are 20-30 mins old consistantly. that additional 10-15 mins can be the difference between life and death if you are caught in a quick moving severe storm. so this can be ok for future planning in a day but not reliable for accurate storm tracking as the name of the application suggests.
Needs an option for sound on alert notifications. When an alert happens there is NO sound at all and it does not pop up on the screen. NOT amazing if it's a tornado warning and you don't hear it. Obviously the developer don't care because the application hasn't been updated in a year. Wow! Uninstalled immediately. Provide sounds for alerts and for the warning notification and i will reinstall and rate 5 stars.
love this. by far the best free radar app. my only request is to be able to slow the speed of radar instead of play/pause. we have tornado watch and warnings all the time in Texas but the radar goes to quick to search the danger.
After using Intellicast as a basic weather source for over a decade, this is a hollow shell by comparisson, grudgingly doling out only the information they wish you to see, as well as advertising regularly covering what you sought. Some particularly aggressive adverts literally hijack the screen, locking out huge parts of the functionality of the app. It will suddenly lose it's mind & display completely various regions, then after you correct that, test to default back on any screen change. Needs work
Its a amazing app, it loves to be fairly accurate. One of my only issues is that I don't like using the future setting for the radar as it is horribly inaccurate. It's very upsetting that the Storm application before this one by Wunderground is gone now.
Amazing application to have. i lived through Hurricane Harvey by this application and knew it was hoing to stay on my phone permanently. I love knowing when we should be expecting inclement weather with the alert telling me when it's possibly going to happen.
Rainfall shows the colour yellow which is not in the legend. Since I've had it installed it hasn't ever forecasted correctly. It's shown 'dark green' rain for the past 4 hours here - and not a cloud in the sky in true life. This is normal for this app. The section on the timeline before 'now' never shows any data.
ughhh. the recent update. hate it. I dont wish purply pink at the top of my screen. I wish the regular blue background back. the everyday snapshot is so hard to read. why a wavy line? I relied on The Weather Channel for succinct, direct, simple to read, information. You have talen that away with the recent UI change.
Hate the fresh version. The temp is no longer by the conditions (sunny or cloudy). So you have to look in 2 places. There is a wavy line between these two, that means nothing. It no longer provides wind speed. (we obtain really windy days). Need a fresh weather app.
This application used over 4gb of data in the background in the latest week. Besides them selling users zone information without direct consent, makes me wonder if they've been accessing the microphone and camera on phones and selling that data as well. F* them! Deleting it right now.
