Customise the weather notices sent to your device, from storm warnings* and national alerts to weekly forecasts and even the best time of day* to cycle, jog, hit the beach, braai or even do your laundry. Track storms in real time as they cross the country. View cool features such as animated radar*, maps, graphs and detailed weather tables. We are the most accurate source of SA weather and offer more for FREE than any other weather app (for SA). Subscribers get some awesome extras not available anywhere else.


EXCLUSIVE FEATURES (not available anywhere else in SA)
• Notifications of storms before they hit your suburb*. This is a world-first and we are proud that it’s coming out of SA.
• See where storms are currently and where they'll be in 30 and 60 minutes*. This helps you plan, so you can start that braai early or get on with your golf.
• Radar animations for awesome insights around storm direction, intensity and growth.
• Maps of lightning strikes for the past 6 hours*. We have the most epic storms, so it’s really cool to see this stuff.
• Hail warning for your daily commute so you can- get ahead of that traffic or know when to get your car under cover*.
• Rain in the new incredibly useful World Met Office format: This gives you a % risk of any rain, % risk of moderate rain, and % risk of storm. The best part is that it’s for your very own suburb and split into four timeslots per day.
• Activity indices for many outdoor sports and activities, showing when it’s a good time of day to get out there or stay indoors - again for your suburb at 3 timeslots per day and 7 days ahead.

• Rate the storms in your suburb so we can tweak the settings over time.
• 7-day tables across 4 timeslots per day.
• Set your favourite suburbs and swipe between them.
• Covering 350 suburbs (unlike other weather companies, we never average between main SA towns then try to claim that we are covering your street).
• Loads of SA maps for today and tomorrow's weather, with zooms available*. We cover useful stuff like fog am/pm, and rain across am/pm/night.
• Sun & moonrise set for your town, which includes the moon phase.

It used to be good... But now it's more trouble than it's worth. It's more down than up, wants permissions it probably doesn't need and the widget is too big and I believe it now throws up annoying ad's in your face (thats not a problem because ad blockers exist). While non subscribers get enough info (when it works) it's slow to load. It went from a good app to one that I can well do without.

Extremely slow Been roughly 3 days since I installed this app, each time I open it, it just takes longer to provide information. What's the use of a weather app that cannot give information in fair time. This morning, waited 4 minutes, still no results. Uninstall!!
