  • Worthless now

    By Skydog187
    I always liked this app. Yet we are getting tornado warnings and this app has been silent. What's going on?
  • My go-to app for sever weather

    By Neesiedavis
    I bought this app 6 years ago when I was traveling through multiple state with tornado warned storms. It still actively use it. I always receive warnings before the local news stations put their warnings out. Apply the setting as you want the app to behave and it's the best out there! Spot on!
  • phenomenal weather app.

    By luisxvaz
    i love it, it's really simple to use but also very informal on lots of stuff.
  • Radar Lagging Lately

    By WeatherWiz13
    Living in central Indiana, it's crucial to have current and accurate info. We've been getting stormed on for a good 10 minutes now. Torrential rains, loud thunder and pops of lightning. This radar has absolutely no rain or severe weather around me within 20 miles. Not very dependable when push comes to shove. I'll seek other weather apps first now. Unfortunate as this used to be my go to weather app.
  • Love the app, recent issues

    By caseypa
    I love this app! But sadly, recently I have been having issues where it is not getting alerts. My other weather apps are getting the alerts, but this one (which I rely on the most) has not been receiving the information or alerting me to weather hazards.
  • Fix it!

    By Fix this thing!
    Your app is wrong today!! Partly cloudy? It is pouring rain! Thundering and lightning! What satellite or radar do you use??
  • Great weather alert app

    By Ryan_www
    I have used this app for years and it works great for me. I use it mostly to monitor severe weather. You can customize alerts by type and location. I have not used the lightning alerts yet.
  • Has many issues

    By gvgerman
    Costly features are free on other apps, notifications are iffy, appears to be abandoned- no updates in a year ...
  • Works, but...

    By boothfirefighter365
    Didn't receive lightning alerts when there was lightning in the area.
  • Can't get the pin to move
