suggestion Have just downloaded this app and initial thoughts are that I'm happy with it. But as a suggestion, under Preferences, if under Location you could create concentric rings for distance for the Location when set as an option. For example, I have the Location on, set to my GPS. If it would then allow me to place concentric circles around it at say for example 15 miles, 30 miles and 60 miles. so that we have a better perspective for distance of storm to us.
