This app is marginally better than going to the NOAA website. Push notifications are nice. Satellite page loads all of the loop images before displaying. What if i don’t want the loop? I have to wait for all the images to load? What if i have a slow connection? The interactive map is beta quality in my opinion. It takes forever to update; you need the eyes of a five year old to read the minuscule fonts on the storm. Oh, you can zoom in and read it just fine....that is until it updates then back to the fonts for ants. Tapping on the storm does nothing; does not bring up any info. I would pay $20 to get Hurricane Pro or an equivalent app back. So far I have found nothing that even comes close. Some features in the latest version of this app may be worth $2 for some. For me only because nobody can seem to put out anything better.
New user to this app
We live in the midwest, own 2 houses in St. John, USVI. We were hit hard 2 years ago and have been using the NHC NOAA website daily during hurricane season. Just found this app today. I like the different map views. They provide quick and easy differentiation to multiple aspects. Also works well over the mainland. I would like to see these maps in action for the next official hurricane. I had no issues whatsoever giving 2 bucks to the store. 2 suggestions: Larger Atlantic overview if possible. All these storms originate from the African coast and I couldnt see that area very well; also it might provide a larger picture if the app would rotate to landscape view when i turn the device sideways. Thank you to the developer for all the work you have invested.
All time favorite app, till death do us part
This app is incredible, absolutely marvelous. Not only is it amazing at updating you on hurricanes all the way through their development visually, it also informs you on every detail in writing. It has satellite images of the entire United States, Mexico and Caribbean, as well as a few others and they are constantly updated. It even lets you know when there are typhoons on the other side of the globe. I can’t understand anyone that doesn’t love this app. It’s pure perfection. Get it. Don’t even think about it.
I’ve enjoyed this app and have found it to be accurate and a useful tool to navigate hurricane information without all the commercials of regular news /weather apps . Sticking to the data is the best plan when monitoring a storm. I’m in the middle of hurricane Dorian , ot is providing me with the most updated and accurate information . The app developer was kind enough to email a quick reply to a simple question I had . great customer service also... kudos to you !!
very nice, but...
I really like this app, and it is the only one that shows me all the map and charts I want. Love the spaghetti map, which is hard to find online. The only problem is that after a few uses, it disables any touch commands on my iPad Mini4 and locks my iPad Air 2 in portrait mode without having the locked mode show up in the command panel or settings. For both problems, only a hard reboot will let me use the iPad again. I have seen this before in apps that only offer portrait view on iPads, and really hope that a landscape view will be a forthcoming improvement and bug fix.
I wish there was one update shot that is brief with just a few facts. Hard time finding the Category info and actual real-time data such as, what did the Hurricane hunter find for wind speed, at what time? Yes I know they only update a few times of day. Did the speed increase or decrease since last measure, did movement speed increase or decrease? Just a few quick details on a single screen would be extremely useful instead of having to go through pages of data. Everything else is plentiful. Maybe it is there and I am just looking in the wrong spot.
Way better than trudging through the web site
Have had this for a while, but TS Cristobal had me pull it out and really check it out. Seems to have everything I use. I know the NOAA guys work hard on the website, but it’s still a 1990s mostly Text, too busy, cryptic, and all too often multiple click paths to find something or even worse look up what something is. SMH Three thoughts to improve it. 1) (important to me) am old and zoom all the time on my iPad/iPhone. Needs zoom feature. 2) (nice to have) Would be nice if there was an info button with each product that includes either a simple description or pulls the website’s description and displays it. 3) (would pay extra) Add ability to download product in max res to a PDF file.
Nice and Useful App
This app is exactly what I was looking for and the developer seems very responsive in addressing issues/concerns and making improvement. I live near the Gulf Coast and have tried a few different hurricane tracking NHC data consolidation type apps and this one is my favorite. I hope the developer continues to develop and improve the program and I look forward to the future updates.
Good app for weather enthusiast
Love this app! With all the advisories and information from NHC in one place, you can always stay on top of storm tracks and forecasts (includes Pacific and Atlantic). Additionally, having easy reference to different satellite image sequences and such is useful! Recommend if you want an app that will get you the information you want without a yearly premium like with some other apps out there.
EXCELLENT TOOL FOR MOST
As a weather-geek in my 50’s, I love this! Although it might be a bit too technical for some and not provide specific TV news type forecasts for cities and towns, it provides me with the tools I like as an amateur meteorologist to see what’s out there and enhance my learning. I also travel quite a bit, so I check this along with other data and forecasts. It was exactly what I was looking for!
Let us search by city name
I’m not finding the app to be intuitive enough. Most of us care first and foremost for our current location. Let us put a pin on our location address, then give us the data for that location, such as where are we in terms of sea level (calculate surges for our location), wind speeds at our location, etc. These maps seem too general and when I tried the GOES 16 it just looked like a scene of swirls But thank you for making an app. With no TV at home it’s still useful
Add Forecast Discussion and Advisory Text?
Can you add buttons to link to the text details from NHC forecast advisories and discussions, and public advisories - for each of the current storms? That would make this the 5 star must have app for hurricanes!! Update: a few hours later the text advisories and discussions are in an app update. 5 stars now. Update: 8/9. I would give this app 6 stars. It just keeps getting better!!
App is good.
Editing my initial review. I’ve looked more closely at what this app offers and it offers a lot more than I realized. So it’s pretty good. So I am removing my initial review. I’ll still use the NHC website on a desktop when possible just because the images are obviously going to be larger than what you see on a phone, but if I didn’t have a computer available I’d use this.
Most responsive developer!
I was surprised to see that the app did not support Central Pacific region. I emailed developer on Monday with request for Central Pacific region coverage. He wrote back the same day and indicated that he would add it. On Wednesday (today), I was able to download an updated version with coverage for Central Pacific region as well as ability to track unnamed storms, like that one that is passing below Hawaii today! Wow! Thank you for your incredible responsiveness and desire to improve your app!
THE Hurricane App
NOAA and the National Hurricane Center do a great job providing hurricane information to the public online. Unfortunately, they do not provide an app with that information. This app fills that need. It takes all that online information and puts it into an app that allows for intuitive access in a pleasant GUI. Explore the app and you'll find all the hurricane information you are looking for!
