** Forecast models can be CPU & memory intensive. The viewer will run on older devices, but newer devices will provide a better experience.

Recent changes:
- Added Alternate DNS option to work around the current NHC DNS issues. If you're seeing a lot of connection errors, try enabling this option. (Main screen -> Settings -> scroll down to Advanced -> Use Alternate DNS)
- Updated overview and outlook summary maps to new NHC versions

Excellent app!!! You have to have it! Everything is very easy to find and it has all the info you need directly from NHC which is the most reliable source of information. You have to try it!

Easy and full of information I leave a boat in Mexico during hurricane season. This app gives me peace of mind. Very easy. Always warns me when anything is forming. I use a lot of apps and this is one of just a few that really does what it says.

This is now the best hurricane tracker app on the Play store I have tried the others, even the paid ones. They just don't measure up to this app. Buy online, buy the add on (.99¢) and have access to all the available data. The app is intuitive, very well written and first class.

Great, would like one improvement Would be 5 stars if the model tracks were labeled on the display. As a meteorologist, I'd like to be able to quickly glance at the model plot and know which track belongs to which model. The individual model IDs can have significant meaning to someone who knows the strengths/weaknesses. Also wish the 5-day graphical TWO was included. UPDATE: the more I use the app, the more frustrating it is that there is no way to tell which model is which without tapping each one individually - especially since the app doesn't seem very responsive to my attempts at doing just that. Rating lowered from 4 to 3 stars since the models are the main reason I bought the app. Label the models or at least add a legend and I'd give it 5 stars.
