I used to use this app a lot. The 3D map is pretty cool, and has gotten easier to control, but it was the 2D map that I found most useful. Having the time slider so you can see where the storms are, where there going and how long they'll last, with surprising accuracy, was a powerful feature. But the 2D map no longer shows precipitation, and hasn't for a while, rendering it pretty much useless. Unfortunate as I have yet to find a replacement.

Would love to love it.... But it does not work correctly and the forecasts are horribly incorrect. Hoping for an update.

Widget? Really wish this had a widget with current conditions.. Also a small bug when keyboard pops up on the report screen the map compresses and does not go back to normal when keyboard is gone. Fix the things and this great app would be five stars

Doesn't work on Galaxy S3 I open ap and went to look at extended forecast and all it shows is lil clouds jiggling as if the forecast should be showing there but isn't! I close ap and try to reopen and now won't open at all. :(
