    I use this application all of the time to get detailed radar information on storms. One reason I picked this app over others is that it includes Storm Reports in addition to numerous level 3 data products, storm watches and warnings, derived cell information, and storm tracks. No, it does not have a composite. If you want composite, use the free weatherTap app they offer. As any meteorologist can tell you, composite images can hide insteresting components of storms. As a meteorologist myself, I would love to see a few more level 3 products make it in here, however I know that the average user wouldn't be interested in this data. The only other things lacking for me are lightning data and satellite data, which oddly enough are included in the free version.

    This is one of the best weather apps. The tornado icons are helpful and awesome for locating serious storms. Thanks.

    I have used the basic Weather Zoom for 7 years, however it recently stopped working. When I went the the Pro Weather Zoom app page it claimed the app was current. The NOA has decommissioned use of the weather information that supplied this app with radar and other information. This App should be taken down immediately as I just spent $10 for a useless app!
  • Doesn't show community storm tracks anymore

    With this new update, what has happened to the storm tracks? It just says it's unavailable.
  • Did really enjoy this app.

    It really helped to see how fast individual cells were tracking. But a decommission NWS website has rendered this app with no useful information.

    The original Zoom did work well, now the pro is bad also. Won't or can't identify any radar site. It's a really good program when it works!

    You have a great app here and I recommend it to many people. However when any developer lets a year go by without any updates you are starting to abandon your paying customers... Make it better, fix a bug... Love it but give us some more ;-)

    Love the app, when it works. REALLY needed it to work right now today, but it keeps saying it needs a network connection. My wi-fi and my LTE (wireless) both have strong signals. So, it's not my iPad. It's the app. We have severe weather happening right NOW in areas where I live and my family lives. I can't see the path, I can't see anything and it's frustrating!!! Please fix this!!!
  • ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?!?!

    Used this app for a while, went ahead and downloaded Pro for $10 and as SOON as a major storm hits the radar won't work. THANKS A LOT for putting me in a position that I can't even see what is coming at me. Total fail I want my money back!
