Description
Thanks to everyone for making MyRadar so successful, with over 50 million downloads! MyRadar is a fast, powerful, easy-to-use weather app that displays animated weather radar around your current location and to quickly show what weather is coming your way. Just start the app; your location pops up with animated live radar, with radar loop lengths of up to two hours. This basic functionality provides the quickest way to get a snapshot of the weather on-the-go, and it's what has made MyRadar so successful over the years. Check your phone and get an instant assessment of the weather that will impact your day. One of the most useful features in MyRadar is the ability to provide advanced rain alerts; our patent-pending process for predicting hyper-local rainfall is the most accurate in the industry. Instead of having to check the app all the time, MyRadar will send you an alert up to an hour in advance as to when the rain will arrive at your current location, down to the minute, including details on intensity and duration. These alerts can be a life saver when you're on-the-go and don't always have time to check the weather - our systems will proactively do the work for you and let you know in advance before the rain hits. In addition to the live radar, MyRadar has an ever-increasing list of weather and environmentally-related data layers that you can overlay on top of the map; our animated winds layer shows a breathtaking visual representation of both surface winds and winds at the jetstream level; the frontal boundaries layer shows high and low pressure systems as well as frontal boundaries themselves; the earthquakes layer is a great way to stay on top of the latest reports on seismic activity, completely customizable as to severity and time; our hurricane layer allows users to stay on top of the latest tropical storm and hurricane activity throughout the world; the aviation layer overlays AIRMETs, SIGMETs and other aviation-related data, including the ability to track flights and display their IFR flight plans and paths, and the "wildfires" layer allows users to stay abreast of the latest fire activity around the United States. MyRadar also has the ability to send weather and environmental alerts, including alerts from the National Weather Service, such as Tornado and Severe Weather alerts. A new feature introduced in this version of MyRadar includes the ability to receive alerts based off of Tropical Storm and Hurricane activity; you can configure the app to send you an alert any time a tropical storm or hurricane forms, or is upgraded or downgraded. In addition to the free features of the app, additional upgrades are available, including real-time hurricane tracking - great for the start of hurricane season. The hurricane tracker provides additional data above and beyond the free version, including the cone of probability for tropical storm/hurricane forecast tracks, and it also includes a detailed synopsis from the National Hurricane Center. The premium upgrades also include the professional radar pack, which allows greater detail of radar from individual stations. Users can select individual radar stations around the US, select the radar tilt angle, and also change the radar product being displayed, including base reflectivity and wind velocity - great for experienced weather buffs looks to stay on top of possible tornado formation. Download MyRadar today and try it out! * Aviation Charts subscription (not required in order to use MyRadar) ($24.99 USD per YEAR) * Payments will be charged to your iTunes account * Account will be charged for renewal within 24-hours prior to the end of the current period * Auto-renewal may be turned off at any time by going to your settings in the iTunes Store after purchase.

This app is the best way to keep up with the ever changing Florida weather. I work in the bar business and one of the bars I manage is outdoors. This app has been my go to in regards to helping with the never ending battle of how to stag in always changing conditions. Five stars!
Better than NOAA
by BruceLueckenhoff on 2020/07/05 03:07
I used to use the NOAA app but my hubby introduced me to this app and I must admit it’s better. It seems to update faster. I wish the background would be blue during the day but at least it is accurate
Great!

I click on the app and instantly know where the weather front is so I can decide is it safe to remove a roof or are we clear to get it off.
Drone Pilot’s Dream!
by ThumbTD on 2020/07/04 20:46
I am a drone enthusiast. I own several of them and love to fly in places other drone pilots typically do not. This means lots of “far from humans” locations...and, that can also mean difficulty in getting accurate weather information, particularly current wind data. My Radar app is a COMPLETE GOD-SEND for this! You must go into the “layers” and turn on Wind, but once the layer is active it is truly awesome. Highly recommended for Drone Pilots!!
BEST RADAR APP EVER
by couponwill on 2020/07/04 19:59
I go fishing. Mow grass or just to go out. I can open this app and see if any rain is coming. I would rate it 10 stars if I could
Best weather app out there

Very accurate times with alerts, leave your location services on all the time to stay on top of the weather...hasn’t run my battery down quickly yet! Great app must have everywhere I go!

My Radar always seems to be pretty much spot on. I use it more often than our local NBC News Station for better accurate weather reports.

You can pick weather stations that are near wherever you are to pick up the immediate weather. Very helpful for winter bad weather.
Great app!

It actually gives me real time and accurate intel on what to expect. Great advantage for tracking wildfire activity and when upgraded the hurricane activity is crustal as well. Massive thumbs up guys!

Why does the app always open up in Stonehill New York? I live in South Jersey. Although I’m trying to like this app, it’s a little confusing. Need to simplify and have the ability to permanently keep local address for Weather. It’s not often I care about whether in other locations.

If you want to see what’s going on overhead a few miles away, My Radar gives you time to get inside. It will also show when you still have time for bike ride even though the cloud cover is thick. This is an invaluable tool when your next move is driven by the incoming weather.

One time it was so sunny, and hot, and I was in the middle of woods, on the farm, and I got a 15 minute notification, that moderate rain was coming, and I got inside with time to spare after hauling butt up the hill, and it poured down, so glad I didn't get caught in that.

Now I’m not great with computers so I am probably missing it but on that note. I wish the radar would go out a little further in the future. I can’t seam to find out how to do that but I really love the radar because I ride a motorcycle and can keep an eye on the rain. Or that that stops me. I just like knowing what’s coming up.
Great radar!

So tired of paying for apps that stop working after a few days. This app stopped updating the correct temperature in my city six days after I paid for a one year subscription.

Very Slow Loading
by KBKinfinity on 2020/07/02 15:05
Lately, this app has been very slow to load. This is made worse by the fact that the radar overlay is the last thing to load. It can take several minutes for the current radar image to shore up. Outside of that, which is a real bummer, this is one of the best apps I have, and I use it daily.
Make my job easier.
by JRs Painting on 2020/07/02 14:07
I am a painting contractor in FL. The rain here is difficult to predict. It can be pouring in the backyard and dry in the front. This app provides me accurate real time images of what the rain is doing. With this app I am able to make educated decisions on whether or not we will keep putting paint in the wall or wrap things up for the day.

A Real Life Saver
by TN PRO on 2020/07/01 23:51
Having been a PGA Golf Professional for over 27 years I see technology like this changing the way courses monitor storms and danger posed to players. I cannot list the number of times I’ve been on the course and may have kept playing were it not for being able to see what exactly is coming over the ridge. I’d say it easily gives a player an extra 10-15 minutes warning of when they should head for a safe area. It has helped give the player more responsibility for their safety rather than rely solely on the facility to make the call.

by AnonymousUnknownUser on 2020/07/01 16:09
I love this app, it’s super helpful to be able to see the forecast and radar. However, it only shows you events and past radar not the upcoming one. So you pretty much have to assume and guess where a storm will hit. I think there should be an option to look at the past radar but also see the future predictions.
Little squares moving on radar
by nutmegstate on 2020/07/01 16:01
On my new iPad the radar shows a bunch of little squares for rain and clouds. Same app on Android has nice smooth edges. Other than that not bad. May have to keep looking because I don’t like the presentation. Edit....found a hi def setting and display is much better, up to 5 stars.
Thank you
by CharlesAr1962 on 2019/12/28 20:44
It seems life has become so fast paced and hectic for most of us that we communicate mostly to complain and express our frustration with the “things” in our life, or complain about life itself. We often forget to be thankful for the things we actually have, and most importantly to those that work hard behind the scenes to make those good things possible. So I’m writing this review as a user of your radar program for the past several years, just to say Thank You! I truly appreciate all the work that goes into making, improving and maintaining this program. There are some that would say is not perfect for this or the other reason, but perfection is hardly ever achieved in life, and the definition of perfection is usually in the eye of the beholder. For me, living in an area of the country with sudden, often unpredictable and dangerous weather (as in thunderstorms and tornadoes) I can say your program has kept me and my family out of harms way many times. Perfect? Perhaps not in some users minds. But for me has been a life saver (LITERALLY) more than once in this many years. So once more, thank you for all you do. I appreciate your help in keeping me and my family safe from the elements.
Old Radar Loop, 60% accurate, crashes etc
by happyfeet 20017 on 2019/07/06 19:14
The “live radar” loop runs 2 hours ~20 mins past time. The will rain or storm times graph & time feature is wrong 60% of the time. I have my home marked with a star ( it only allows me to 1 star location tho) Worst is it gives me weather, alerts & warnings for a town 15 + miles away, in a different county that gets different weather & warnings. Ugh. When we were traveling and hit bad weather it was a worthless app. It kept kicking me back home 400+miles then kept crashing all cause I was trying to pull weather from my current location. It started draining my battery, freezing, unavailable data, crashing. If I’m home in my marked Location the app never freezes, crashes, etc. My husband uses a NOAA app (free) and I thought I was downloading the same one he has. No this one is horrible compared to the one he uses. The one he uses gives him current road conditions/warnings/accidents/ radar etc as he’s traveling and actually shows the town we live closest to (3 miles) correct county & he has locations (stars) marked all over the place. The (free) NOAA app he uses didn’t have a melt down when we were out of town or traveling and worked great.. I’m uninstalling this app and looking for the app my husband uses..Idk why so many different NOAA apps are available but lessons learned they are not all equal. The one he uses offers upgrades but the free version works good & has adds just like this one.
Great Radar App
by pryoho on 2020/03/22 17:05
I’ve tried six or seven weather/radar apps and My Radar is the best one for my purposes. Most apps give you the weather when you open them, and then you have to find the radar button. I like the radar on screen when I open the app. All weather reports are an average of weather for your area. Even My Radar will notify my that it will begin raining in 12 minutes. But when I check the radar the rain cell is moving just north of me, so no rain at my location. I also like that the radar always on, I don’t have to start it or restart it. The layers feature is excellent with easy access so I can turn on temperature, wind speed, clouds, fronts, earthquakes, warnings and watches, aviation layers, and several more. You can choose the type of map with the features that suit you, and you can adjust the radar features for speed, timing and opacity. This is truly a radar app that includes excellent weather information. Also enjoy seeing the weather radar anywhere in the world just by moving the map. Highly recommended.
I Miss the Old Storm app!!
by Umphphreak6 on 2018/11/27 17:27
Is there a way to see the future radar like the old Storm app? Is that in the premium packet because my radar ends 10 mins before the actual time & I want to know the forecast radar for the next hour. Also, if I press on a fire icon & read about it, when I go bk to the map, the time on the animation slider becomes 8 hours off. I don’t think the actual radar changes. I only know that I have to close & reopen the app to get the time back to ending 10 minutes before the actual time. This makes me wonder if I can trust the accuracy of this app. Plus, it’s been raining here nonstop for 6 hours but the radar shows periods of no rain. It’s also really annoying when the slightest tap or zooming in on the map will start changing the cities up above because of the crosshairs. And when I swipe left, or right to scroll through my favorite cities, nothing happens- it won’t scroll through the cities even though the stars are highlighted. I miss being able to zoom in & see exactly where it’s going to be raining & being able to chose between 1 hour or 5 hours in the future & clicking on the storm cells & find out the speed & the danger associated with each one, as I could in the old Storm app. It truly was the best weather app out there! I will change my 2 star rating if I can find the future radar.
Good but needs accuracy fix
by Trophy Husband on 2020/03/04 20:58
I've used this app for about a year on several IOS devices. I like the simplicity to quickly see the radar and incoming weather without a lot of navigating, and also easily zoom in or out. I have found however that many times the radar overlay is not accurate with the location of the actual precipitation on the map. Today for example, the map accurately showed my location but the radar indicated heavy rain over me when it actually was about a mile away from my observations. So, until this is corrected the app is useful as a general view of what might be approaching but not accurate to a precise level. Also, I've noticed that the precipitation levels on the map are somewhat exaggerated over what is actually occurring. Overall, it's useful if you want a simple view of the radar and some other basic functions. Update 3/3/20: I was hopeful for improvements in the new update, it has a new icon and title page, but same issues exist. Accuracy is off- radar shows rain at my house and it’s not doing anything. Notifications are not reliable, they stop working after a while even with background app refresh enabled. Disappointed.
OOPS! Now my radar works again!
by _Blessed_ on 2019/07/23 17:47
Recently, I wrote a critical review complaining that this app had become so bloated with extra features that the basic radar feature stopped working. After a week of not receiving any acknowledgement of my support request, I sent an email to corporate that got a response. However, none of the suggestions that were offered to me worked, and the developers never responded to the diagnostic file that they requested and which I provided. I gave up, deleted the app, but then re-installed it after I learned of a new update. But the radar still would not load. In preparing to send another request for help, I discovered the problem! My iPad was set to the wrong time zone (London) as a result of a recent trip. Once the time zone agreed with my physical location, the radar layer displayed properly. I still believe that the app is becoming bloated, and I’ve learned that support is often difficult to reach, but this app deserves more than the one-star that I previously gave it. If they are able to improve support by offering faster responses and a knowledge base, it will be a 5-star app. Until then, I’m changing my 1-star review to a 4-star review.
Great App!
by red pills rule on 2018/10/09 19:13
Very Accurate, but I have suggestions. It's supposed to provide useful info for pilots. I really appreciate the inclusion of the fire locator function so I can tell smoke clouds by wind direction. However, VOG and Saharan Desert Dust also would be pertinent info. I'm not a pilot, but as a person who doesn't have breathing problems unless exposed to a trigger, I'd be willing to pay extra to get fire smoke clouds, VOG, and Saharan Dust mappers so I know when the clouds reach my area and when to wear a mask or stay indoors and change my air filter after the condition passes. It would probably be best to toggle this info so as not to overcrowd the map. Also nice would be a show of the jet-streams, fronts, high pressure systems like the Bermuda High that are pertinent to hurricane tracks, and dry air and moist air indicators to see whether fronts are coming in wet or dry. The dumbed down weather nowadays rarely shows these indicators that people used to rely on to predict the weather themselves (often better than the meteorologists). If you already have this for purchase, please let me know, or consider adding.
Great fee app, great paid app
by CarterInTheBar on 2018/09/13 14:22
I switched over to this app after Weather Underground’s “Storm” radar app was obsoleted and replaced by the terrible sequel by The Weather Channel. Immediately, I appreciated all the layers that this app has, and the customization that it’s capable of. I also like that while you can get a “basic” paid functionality (do it! Even if you don’t mind the ads, support people who make quality apps!), you can upgrade different bits of functionality a la carte, as you need them. For example, while I’m a private pilot, I’m not actively flying currently. But if I DO get back into it, the aviation charts functionality is built into the app, for an annual subscription (which makes sense, since av charts update and need to be kept current). Excellent, excellent app. The only suggestion that comes to mind is to enhance the functionality of the “storm center” feature so that the center moves with the time-lapse. Currently, it is stationary, and stays in the position it is in the latest radar frame, as the radar time lapse “catches up” to it.
I have used My Radar for 6 years
by Mike on the Columbia on 2020/06/20 02:55
I originally purchased this app 6 years ago. I needed a reliable radar source that I could use at my place of work. At that time I superintended bulk cargo loading operations onto ships for export. The cargo was weather sensitive. We could not load cargo in the rain. When you have a gang of very expensive Longshore labor standing by for weather, it was critical to be able to reference MyRadar to look for windows of dry weather so we could load. This app gave me the ability to see when weather was coming and going. I was able to ready the gang prior to the dry windows, so I could maximize my loading windows. Needless to say, this app is accurate in my experience and it helped save a lot of money in gang standby time. Customers were also happy to sail their vessels earlier than expected in many cases. I still regularly use and rely on MyRadar in my retirement years, for camping, anticipating when to come in from sitting in my backyard. I love the “layers” options. I feel this puts them above other radar apps.
When beauty enhances accuracy
by Dr.Cruise on 2018/09/19 21:04
There’s lots to be said for simplicity. This app delivers clear, dynamic, and beautiful radar images quickly. Moreover, the images provided appear to provide (in my opinion) a better indication as to how a storm is developing and moving. I’m able to look out from 7600ft to the south and west from the southern Sangre de Christos, taking in a thousand square miles of view shed and storms up to 100 miles away. I can watch individual storm cells developing and compare them to what I see on my screens. I’ve tried dozens of other apps and when it really matters I’ll always revert to the raw NEXRAD feed, toggling between clutter on & off when making important go/no go decisions for travel in remote areas. But this is the radar app I keep coming back to. I wish I understood why it’s better. It may be due to the fact it includes some of the info in a “clutter included” nexrad image without including too much of the noise. It also smooths out gaps in the radar image caused by inversions, dust, etc. Nice work, MyRadar developers!
My favorite app!
by barbcrayola on 2019/01/22 12:56
I’m a lover of skies, weather and being out of doors. As an organizer of an outdoor adventure group of active retirees, My Radar is perfect for helping me plan and to know when it’s safe to be out on the trails and water. Thanks to using My Radar, many times while out kayaking we have known to cut our paddle short and head back to safety when we see that a sudden storm has popped up and is coming our way. We also have had times where we could see on My Radar that the storm’s path would skirt past us so have been able to stay out enjoying instead of retreating. As a former middle school teacher when taking 7th graders on a Cape Cod hike we were able to show the students why they really did need to don their rain gear as a soaking deluge was destined to hit in a few minutes. When planning to fly somewhere, or just curious, I can see the weather, in most places, all over the world! I really appreciate and love My Radar and I highly recommend it to everyone!
THIS APP SELL YOUR LOCATION TO 3RD PARTIES
by @Naisaan on 2018/09/08 05:18
I loved MyRadar it was so well designed helped me figure out if I should stay inside & wait 5 minutes to stay dry or go out side & bite the bullet on getting wet. It was Truly a wonderful app, which is why it blows my mind that they decided to SELL THEIR USER’S LOCATION TO DATA MONETIZATION COMPANIES MAKE A LITTLE EXTRA MONEY. I understand apps need to make money I get that, but selling my & every other users’ location to make money is unethical. One might so “oh everyone sells your data what’s the big deal” all of it to me is immoral but this app goes above and beyond the levels of immortality by selling “both precise location and other sensitive customer data to data monetization companies "at all times, constantly" sometimes without customers being aware of the location data collection. The information is used for purposes like creating databases for ad targeting.” Even if this app pledges to stop selling my CURRENT LOCATION I won’t re-download, how can I trust them? If there were any staff who worked on this app & didn’t know about this I’m sorry that this is impacting you. But to the screwup leadership that made the decision to SELL OUR CURRENT LOCATION I’m glad that this story is finally out in the open. Nobody will trust you now.
Great Replacement for Wunderground
by MPlanchard on 2020/02/01 22:10
Wunderground seems to have recently lost their way, removing the super useful lock screen widget with daily and weekly forecast graphs, and making useful weather information harder to discover in-app. I tried out about ten weather apps looking for something to replace it, and this is by far the best! Displaying the temperature and precipitation for the day and upcoming week as a graph with lines is SO MUCH nicer and easier to parse than a bunch of icons. It’s super nice that this is available on the lock screen widget. Also, the radar display is absolutely fantastic, beating the heck out of wunderground’s, even before their recent descent into madness. It’s clear the MyRadar team has a good sense for what people actually use the app for (like, you know, checking the weather for the upcoming day), and they make those things as easy and straightforward to access as possible. Keep it up! I will definitely be paying the super reasonable $10/year to support something so useful.
My Radar
by fuzzydove1 on 2020/03/22 19:30
I’ve lived in Ga. since getting out of the military and every year when the seasons change from winter to summer and from summer to fall we have tornados, back in 1973 we lost our home to a tornado, back then we didn’t have anything like My Radar, nowadays we have all kind of warnings, T.V. Radio, and weather programs on computers, I pads, and cell phones; I’ve tried a lot of different weather radars and I always come back to My Radar , it’s the best one I’ve tried, The screens are clear the clouds are different colors and it tells you when there is a possibility of severe weather. My Radar can be set up to each persons preference, it is also available for pilots and can be setup that way, it’s just an all around great weather program. The program can be set up to send weather notices to a smart phone or from your computer to your I-pad. This program beats all off the others hands down. Try it and you will see for your self, James D. Athens, Ga.
Where did the good app go??
by Sadness10 on 2019/06/26 21:46
Open the app and see the local radar…Boom! Swipe left or right through my favorite locations and see the radar for those places…Boom! That’s what used to happen. Simple, perfect; I couldn’t ask for much more. Now I don’t see the radar. I see the data instead. Then I can’t slide the panel up for several seconds, and when I finally can I am greeted by the radar for the entire western hemisphere. What is up?? This app no longer does what I need to do quickly and efficiently, the reason I installed it a long time ago in the first place. Swiping from one favorite location to the next Is no longer reliable, either doing nothing or including places that I’ve never heard of and did not mark. When I tell it to locate me, I get a dot at my location on a map of the entire western hemisphere, and then zooming in doesn’t happen smoothly and I end up in the middle of the Gulf of Mexico, after which I have to zoom back out and then try to zoom back in. I don’t see any reason to keep this app any longer. And when this app is in the foreground my phone begins to heat up; and I just went through the battery replacement thing so I don’t want to toast my new battery.
Time means Life or Death
by HASHTAGMAP on 2019/07/01 12:26
This is the first and only app that I can count on with 100% certainty when it really matters. I am watching weather patterns develop and occurring in “Real Time”. I can actually predict what, where, and when without the need to “Tune in” to a local station. See you later “Weather Bug!”. No kidding! I am able to determine within the accuracy of minutes or even seconds...(my wife thinks I’m taking meteorology on the side) of when the wind will start swirling the trees in the woods, when the first rain droplets will begin, when the droplets will suddenly become a deluge and when it’s time to get into our life saving place of refuge. Let’s face it, this app is the same app our friendly local weather forecaster’s are looking at. I don’t think I need to have the TV on or a talking head telling me something I can see with my own eyes. That puts me at a tremendous lifesaving advantage when every second counts! Get MyRadar App NOW!
Love BUT
by Litekid79 on 2019/08/22 18:51
Have been using this App since moved to FL over 10 yrs ago. It’s great! The hurricane tracker is excellent & love watching Leslie...(more on this later). Here is where the BUT comes in. With every update we get, granted, the app “DOES” improve.....like the new global feature (something had at start, but went away. Now it’s back), along w/ some other cool features. What isn’t great is loading times. On the new iPad Pro 11” this app “feels” slow & loads slower each update that’s pushed out. I’m worried when iOS 13 hits....what will happen! Also, know Leslie can’t be in every weather report....needs a life, but she’s the face of the App, the person that helped us through hurricane after hurricane when couldn’t get any other information....KEEP that in mind, & keep her put & happy! The newish Fast Forecast isn’t as catchy as old one... All in all, get the app more responsive like used to be, less crashing & will change stars back to 5/5. Until than...dinged you 1.5 stars. Sorry....want it awesome like used to be! My score= 3.5/5
Updated: My go to for planning travel and daily activities, avoiding flash floods
by Frog Granite on 2019/07/22 00:45
I want to upgrade my review to five stars. With the regular releases and well considered feature additions, I can tell this team has considerable experience, from app design through to application back-end infrastructure and deployment. It has been very reliable for many months and it is a complex app; I appreciate the well thought out integrations that keep coming. Personally, I use this prior to canyon hiking in known flash flood areas. Helps to keep me from appearing on the nightly news! Suggestion: Add dew point as a future feature. Important to us here in Arizona. === Previous: This has been one of my favorite ‘go to’ apps for two-plus years. But, it has had it’s quirks on the iPad Pro 12.9”, and now with the iOS 12 release it hangs and crashes continuously. I hope a tested release is in the works for this new OS version.
Phone app great...Watch app., not so much
by BusaBud on 2018/01/31 13:15
I have used this app for years and it has always been great and have recommended it everyone I know. I got a Apple Watch this year and was excited to see that there was an My Radar app for it. It was a paid upgrade, but app has been so good for so long, I bought this it. First off, the watch radar is not animated, which is a huge disappointment. A snapshot of radar doesn’t show me direction of movement, as well as closing speed, and if it building or not. Second, it was slow and buggy as all get out. Now, at some point it has disappeared from my watch all together. I reset the watch, phone, and reinstalled the app on the phone completely. I restored the watch purchase and nothing is there. The watch control center on the phone doesn’t even show that there is a My Radar app all. Update: The patch released allowed me to get the app back on the watch. I will update if the performance is improved.
De-stresses storm forecasts
by Eyestothehills on 2017/10/13 11:16
I love this app! I live In a very storm-prone area, and I stress out to the max when storms are forecast for fear of yet more downed trees and damage. But now, I can look and see for myself where a storm is actually heading, and I don't fret needlessly when danger is nowhere near. Just last week I saved myself a lot of grief using this app, when the forecasted storm decided to head elsewhere and I was aware of it. Yay! And the local DC weather forecasts just ignore this area of the nearby Piedmont. So who needs them anymore? I have my app now and the weather forecasters can go crawl under a rock. HOWEVER-- the pop up ads at the bottom are much too large, and they obliterate much of the screen. I get why they're there, but they shouldn't be that big. They're coming with such frequency now that I'm starting to look for another weather app! Otherwise I would've given this five stars.
I was wrong to complain!
by R&MsD on 2018/10/17 22:08
I complained about My Radar app annoying me with a pop up before I could even see the radar. We were about to have a big storm so I quickly wrote to complain about the annoyance and threatened to find a different radar app. Well, after checking out a bunch of other radar apps, none of them were as good as My Radar which is probably why I chose it in the first place! I was wrong to complain because this really is the best of the lot!. Get it and you will see for yourself. No matter where I am, it shows the weather system surrounding me and it is accurate! The notifications of rain, severe weather, etc. are correct within minutes. And I can see an expanded view for the entire region or continent or ocean of interest, or a very close in view! My Radar is still my go to weather app, especially during hurricane season. Thank you.
Great app, and growing
by Kai Blue__ on 2020/03/14 16:24
Ive used this app for the past year as my main radar and overview weather app for my flight school needs. As far as accuracy goes it is the most accurate radar ive used. Some guy was ranting in the reviews about how its not accurate and its old data, blah, blah, blah. I have many other live weather resources such as awos and asos as well as a couple other sources to pull weather data from and i can ensure you this app is accurate. Its interface is great and there arent any pop up ads, which is great for a freebie. There is just a tiny bar on the bottom that plays ads in the background as you use the radar which is totally fine for me because im cheap and dont care enough to subscribe, which is a happy medium. The quality has gone up since i originally got the app as well. The clouds used to look pixelated and really bad but now they have definition and you can tell which parts are thicker and thinner and it really gives them depth now which is a huge game changer. I think something that i would love to see is cloud layers and wind speed by altitude, IF I COULD SEE CLOUD CEILINGS I WOULD SUBSCRIBE IN A HEART BEAT. Other than that the app is perfect, the notifications are neat too because it will tell you light rain stopping in maybe an hour, or something of that nature. Anyway its a great app and the dev team is doing a great job!
Premium Features
by Mahkel2 on 2019/09/20 09:17
I’ve had this app for over 7 years and I use it pretty regularly because I tend to live in places where weather can be destructive. When I first downloaded the app there were no premium upgrades, everything was included. When included features were made premium there was a time that they were included for long time app users, this has gone away and I don’t really understand why? When app users are provided with a certain service for free it doesn’t seem right to begin to charge them for it with no real added features for the customer. Also, I don’t feel that it is right that the features that are now premium upgrades include real life saving features, like hurricane tracking. This is a feature that can really help people, but only if they can afford it! Please bring this app back to the great app it used to be!
Buy an umbrella or get this app...or both, both is also good.
by Jc0912 on 2018/07/30 23:10
The alternative to this app is carrying an umbrella all the time. This app is cheaper than an umbrella. I like this app. I’ve used this app many times to avoid getting soaked in a sudden down pour when running to my car. Whether leaving work or at the grocery store this app gives you the tool needed to decide when to run or when to just chill a few minutes and let it pass. Why guess when the rain will stop when it’s right at your fingertips? This app will tell you when it’s likely to rain in a few mins. Hello? Siri won’t do that for you! Wake up people! Know when it’s gonna stop raining. Don’t be that fool running through the parking lot getting soaking wet when it’s gonna stop raining in just a couple mins. I’ve tried warning people they scoffed at me. They were wet fools. I was not. Don’t be a wet fool.
Best radar of all
by val naples on 2019/09/03 12:44
Have several radar apps on my phone and many times I am shut out or there’s a commercial advertisement in the center of the radar scene or I can’t get the hurricane far east enough on my radar screen because the radar doesn’t go that far but My radar is fabulous it it’s dark screen you can see the light colors of the tornadoes or the in the hurricane brightly colored the names of the cities are bright and I can read them against the black background it’s fabulous I just love it I use it all the time now and I hope that others will enjoy The concept of the dark screen with the light writing in the very bright hurricane views and in the future whatever it will show of weather that you’ll be able to see it clearly great work My radar have several radar apps on my phone and many times I am not able to see anything.
This is by far the best wether radar on the App Store
by RalphRogers on 2018/08/13 03:59
So far I’ve installed the local weather app and the weather bug app, the noaa weather radar, not to mention accuweather and was annoyed when I ran them all side by side and had different images from each. Later I realized out of all the maps the my radar was the most updated one and the most accurate one of the bunch. Showing rain when it was actually raining and the severity of the storm being exactly what it was... I always assumed they were the same , using the same radars but never had much luck until I started using “my radar”. I mow lawns so knowing where the rain actually is and when it’s coming means staying dry in my line of work. Also this is the first review I’ve ever written and wouldn’t take the time if this wasn’t truly a honest app that works and shows accurate information
Love this app
by loving the word 47 on 2019/07/31 02:06
I’ve been using this app for around two to three years I guess. I’m a weather fanatic lol. I used to use the weather channel app, and I used to use two others. Primarily I was looking for just a weather radar map when I found the app. I’m not sure but I think when I first found the app it had like storm track like directional boxes which I love but cannot fig out of its still there sense the revision. (Minor thing if it was there before and not now). I really really love this app. It’s my go to and only weather app I use. The forecasts are reliable. The warnings, watches, and alerts are timely, the ease of use is spot on. Now I’ve lived in northern Vermont, Western Mass, and have traveled through New England. No matter where I am, the app works and is reliable. I also like all the customizable features. Shout out to the app developers, this app is stellar!!!
Great app! Devs please read :)
by SYCLUS on 2018/09/11 18:48
This app has it all to rain, wind, hurricanes, fires, earthquakes and more. Its amazing that we can view them all within this app. Not to mention that they notify you when its going to rain, and its accurate! After getting the notification a minute later it started raining. However I really wish we could revive rain alerts for all types of rain. Devs if you’re reading this please add this in the next update, I would really love to know when its going to be light rain or heavy. Would be better than just one type of alert! You could also add the feature that send us notifications on hurricane updates that we choose to see. So all we have to do is click on the hurricane then click a button like “keep me updated”. Would love these features!!! Keep it up I love the app :)
BUYER BEWARE!
by amyliz277 on 2018/07/07 04:31
I’ve been using this app for years! I mean years! So when my HURRICANE PRO app maker retired last year and the app went dormant I had to find a new hurricane tracking app. So looking at my options and prices. Your $2.99 to upgrade on My Radar seemed like a steal! Well it’s NOT maker of the product and ppl reading my review! For $2.99 when you upgrade in the app luckily I hit Upgrade on Hurricane Tracker or whatever it is and I thought I would get what was all listed the upgrade...UM NO YOU DON’T!!! Well you know what you can take you $2.99 plus tax and stick it up your ⭐️🐟! Seriously! I would have given it 5 freaking stars if you had given me what you advertised for the PRO but nope you didn’t....so here I am complaining and I want a freaking damm refund! Once I get my refund I will never use this app again! I will be deleting it for good after this! It’s the principle of the matter! Misleading and not honest that is what you are! Don’t spend your $2.99 or you will be disappointed people! Money back plus my tax developer of this awesomely crappy app! I’m going to complain till I can’t!
Love this app
by Amateur star gazer on 2019/09/13 05:49
I got this app because I wanted a really good radar app. I wasn’t looking for anything else. It fit the bill beautifully. Literally. The graphics are beautiful. And then it kept getting better. My favorite recent features are the option to show jet stream winds (rather than surface winds, which are still available) and the option to show weather fronts. In short, this is starting to show the weather features that I really value to understand why what’s happening is happening. Then I know how much stock to put in the forecast! So it has turned out to be much more than the basic radar app that I expected, although it still fills that bill. I should also say that I have not added on a lot of extra features. I’m very satisfied with the app just as it comes. Okay, I removed the ads...
Actionable local weather information
by Ad Veritas on 2019/12/01 05:20
Living in an area with several micro-climates I really appreciate the ability of this app to give me timely information specific to my current location. If I’m hiking in mountainous terrain or a canyon 20-30 miles from my house I can center the crosshairs of the app’s map on the GPS location of my iphone and find out the weather that’s going to impact me in a short time. If I’m not using the app I still receive warnings in the form of a banner on my phone advising me of rain, snow, hail, wind events, flash flooding, and the expected time and intensity so I can make preparations if needed. The current radar picture around my location is always accessible. “MY Radar” is really a great name for this app. I have found no need to use the previous weather apps that have been on my phone.
Swing and a Miss - Dated Data
by MaxFla72 on 2018/12/09 17:39
Poor view of the weather ten minutes ago. After looking for a replacement for a great weather app taken over and destroyed by the Weather Channel I thought I might have found it. With a an extra yearly subscription of $10 I could get “”unfiltered individual NEXRAD reflectivity and velocity data.” This option should allow filtering out ground clutter and seeing better the strength of a storm system. What I got was there unknown angles most likely still composite of various angles and no wind velocity. You can’t get a static view only the video that ends ten minutes in the past. Unfiltered should equal live radar and not a delayed product. Control of the angle should include degree by degree adjustment. It should be a real-time scan and not some composite video. Wasted money if you want the true unfiltered radar and a total fake representation of what you’re paying for in the upgrade. More of the same when it comes to rip-off promotions of “upgrades” from the Apple Store.
Best weather app
by lliddell.xi on 2017/11/21 12:46
Typically I do not write reviews but when an app really impressed me I want to send some support. First off looking for a weather app I have one criteria, to be accurate looking in the App Store there are about a dozen different weather apps and only one works it becomes questionable the reputations of the others. Living in Wisconsin with winters i need to know if, when and how much snow will be coming. Or maybe I’m just crazy and like to know those things. Anyways this app is spot on accurate. Better yet the map options and the clarity of the map, plus the speed at which the radar works is amazing. I tried the free app and only after a week I bought the app. For what “my radar pro” offers I would have paid double, because it simply is the best. No other weather app even comes close!
Better than Storm
by Kaveman2010 on 2019/08/20 23:14
I really loved the original Storm app, but it has been turned into useless money-grabbing crap. MyRadar is a great alternative. The free version is easy to use and informative, with a particular exception. I have the app set to follow my location always. The idea, of course, is that whenever I open the app I should see the weather for my current location. And when I’m not using the app, any notification from MyRadar should regard my current location. But, that isn’t happening. Whenever I open the app, the map and weather shows the previous location of when I last opened it, and any notifications I get are about that same previous location, never my current location. As a truck driver that drives 48 states and Canada, I kind of need to know what to expect down the road. If that could be fixed, this app would be perfect for me.
Below the cloud
by Sam Bam The Man on 2019/05/02 15:58
I like the app because I am able to control how far out from my location I can look. The only complaint that I have is, I have to work to get to my location. If I have purchased this application it should open to my location and not have to zoom out to fine my location, I know there is a blue dot for the user to zoom out from, the user expects once the application opens that they will see at once what is happening at their location. I guess I am trying to think for every user, no one can do that but the God that created all things, but God decided not to do that, but let man, woman and the Angels make their own decisions about what they prefer. So I prefer to open the application and go directly to my location on the map, that is all I have to say about that!
MyRadar
by CFIsteve on 2018/09/14 13:52
I’ve earned a commercial pilot license With a certified flight instructor (CFI) rating. I have a lot of weather (Wx) knowledge and experience. You learn more when you are actually up there flying in the Wx. Your Wx app is extremely flexible by using the robust layers feature. There is even an aviation layer that shows things that pilots need to know about. It’s been interesting watching Florence with your app. I did spend $2.99 for an in app purchase of your valuable hurricane tracker. One thing though it wasn’t obvious if that was a one time purchase or if it was a subscription of some sort. To sum it up I enjoy using your app. It’s accurate and shows a lot more than just weather- even earthquakes and areas of flooding. And, apparently you can look at things all over the world. Keep up the good work on your MyRadar app
Great app for current radar

This app has nice features. I use it all the time. Can get wind direction arrows and advisories. Can add hurricane tracking which is great since I live on the south east coast. Would be better if the radar pics updated more often than once every 10 minutes- especially for boating and tracking local tornados when waiting in the safe room for the bad weather to clear. It would also be better if the % chance of rain and temp graphs were on a more fixed scale or increments that made the math easier at a glance. It appears the computer auto scales which is not always the way a person would do it...otherwise I would have given 5 stars. I also like the percent chance of rain in the next hr graph broken down in 15 min increments- it’s a nice feature...
You can see the fronts!
by Garpie on 2019/09/21 23:41
I love this app. I have had it for a few years as my main radar app, but somewhere along the line they added the option to show the fronts as a layer on the map (or I missed it from the start)! Finally! I used to love WU Storm before they sold it to the weather channel, because you could layer winds and fronts over the precip on the radar, plus it had all kinds of useful forecast and conditions info. Now this app had all that too. The wind animation is the best I’ve seen, you can add fronts, and it has almost all the forecast and conditions info I want. Has a widget too. Now if they could just add future radar it would be the ultimate app. It seems very accurate too. I work outside, and the weather usually matches this app’s predictions. Thanks for an awesome weather app!
In The Eye Of The Storm
by Mumzy12 on 2018/09/27 03:55
During Hurricane Florence, even though we had evacuated northwest to the NC mountains, I had marked the location of our house in Wilmington, NC, with a yellow star. We were able to monitor what was happening to our home, during the entire storm. We took pictures of the eye wall hitting our home and watched, on radar, tornadoes tearing through our neighborhood. It really helped us to understand why and how what trees fell. I texted the pictures to myself to show the insurance adjuster, just in case I needed any evidence. I highly recommend this app, as well as hurricane shutters. We had heavy yard debris along with many trees down. Limbs had obviously been deflected by our shutters, which also helped to keep our roof from blowing off. We found our house to be dry and in great shape, minus a few shingles.
Back to great
by CWThomas on 2019/05/02 13:17
Update: app is functioning as normal now with only a 5 minute lapse between image and real time. Received a developer reply to my original concern which goes a long way and frankly is not the norm among most developers. Developer suspected a temporary problem although that problem it could not have happened at a core critical time while bracing for a severe thunderstorm. Hoping this is a temporary problem, but the radar loop ends 50 minutes and counting in the past. Have been accustomed to it being up to 10 minutes old, but in the interest of seeing “current” radar in the midst of a Severe Thunderstorm Watch, a 50+ lapse renders the information essentially worthless. Will have already experienced the passing off a strong storm before the loop catches up. Disappointing!
Excellent App With A few Glitches
by pappasbike on 2019/03/04 02:26
I’ve purchased the subscription version and am overall pleased with it. But one issue vexes me. With HD radar selected I’m unable to see the actual precipitation coverage for my location. I see what looks to be cloud cover but the actual colored precipitation layer is always at the bottom edge of this cloud cover making it look as if there is only a layer of clouds over my location and no precipitation when its raining and snowing here. Selecting the classic view presents the radar view I’m used to with coverage over the entire map including my location. Perhaps this is due to my unfamiliarity with the app but I’ve found no way to remedy this so I leave it set for Classic view. If I’m doing something wrong and can find out how to correct this or understand better what I’m looking at I’ll give this 5 stars.
Great Weather App!
by Ugi.T on 2020/06/10 03:24
This weather app is among the greatest out there! There are so many good perks. It notifies you when storms are approaching, and it also lets you know ahead of time too. This app also has a real-time radar system where you can look to see where other weather is at is nearby cities or even across the world. A new feature allows you to track the ISS (International Space Station). It’s something I was looking forward to seeing. If I may, I would like to request an additional feature. If you could add a news section on the app. Please make this news straight forward and unbias. Although this is a weather app. I believe that this app could get so much more support with news. Hopefully this could be added. Thanks for making this great app!
Best Weather App on Appstore.
by KCdrmr on 2019/09/08 20:25
Living in Florida, bad Weather is almost a daily occurrence during the Summer. I've downloaded and tried just about every weather app and always end up using MyRadar. It has the best Radar images, I actually picked out possible tornados just seconds before recieving Tornado warning. Purchased Full version to track Dorian, and from info I had from App, I knew the storm would turn up and follow coast, due to frontal system, As weather Channel continued to report on " Catastrophic Storm" that will make landfall around Melbourne. I know they don't want People to let their guard down but seriously? Anywhoo, Awesome App, totally worth the $10 yr. And track storm through MyRadar, and maybe Weatherbug. Avoid Jim Cantore's Sign shaking antics on Weather Channel.
Really great app, but a couple suggestions
by rykj2 on 2019/09/01 17:52
What a great app! MyRadar is noticeably more detailed than many other weather and radar apps that I’ve come across. It’s super helpful in not only tracking weather systems, but also understanding why forecasts are the way they are. A couple suggestions for improvement I have would be: 1) allow for seeing more than one hurricane path at a time for premium subscribers (for example, users should be able to track current hurricanes AND prior hurricanes); 2) users should be able to search for prior hurricane any name instead of having to scroll though a long list of storms by year; 3) update the iOS app design for iPhone X/Xr/Xs screen orientations (right now the app design doesn’t seem optimized for no home button and a camera notch. Otherwise, thanks for the app and great job!
Great app
by ♥xxshelbyxx♥ on 2019/08/05 03:43
I have a few issues though. For the past couple of weeks, every time I open the app it crashes. It works fine if I open it a second time. It gets a bit annoying to need to open in twice every time I want to check the radar. Second issue started a few days ago. I got an alert about the hurricane/tropical storm. Thought it was weird since that's not anywhere close to my area and just assumed it was a one time glitch… except it wasn't. I finally found out how to turn off that notification only for it to pop up again. I turned it off again thinking it didn't save my settings only for it to go off again. I even completely turned off all notifications just to get the alert again. Please fix this. I know I'm not the only person getting it.
Solid app but one thing bothers me a bit.
by MandarinChicken on 2018/02/16 14:00
This app works well and is easy and quick which is great. Much faster than the stop iPhone weather app for accessing the radar. The one issue I have is that once you set a star on your map, the only way to see what the weather is and what is coming is to have it in the center of your screen. All the weather that is coming (generally) comes from the west, so I always have the screen screwed with my home to the far right of the screen to see what is coming, negating the ability to see the actual forecast for my home. There is no need to see so much past my star to the right. The aiming sight should be skewed to the right at least 3/4 the width of the screen if not more so you can keep your star(s) on it and see what is coming. Just an opinion.
Good replacement for Storm Radar
by Son of FE on 2020/01/17 21:31
After The Weather Channel consumed Weather Underground and utterly destroyed the amazing Storm app, it was replaced by Storm Radar. The replacement was/is a disaster. My Radar is a worthy replacement for the old Storm, although I wish it could access the network of amateur weather stations from around the world so that we could have finer granularity with things like precipitation and temperature data. Other than that, the only other really cool new feature would be to add Apple CarPlay functionality so we could monitor storms relative to our driving location while on the road. This one is definitely worth the free download, and maybe even a subscription. One BIG improvement would be to add Apple CarPlay to its functionality. That would be wonderful when on the road!
Excellent weather app!
by Robert Dubya on 2018/09/04 12:19
Having tried a number of unsatisfactory weather apps, I was glad to have found MyRadar. It is an excellent app that gives me all of the weather information that I need in an attractive and easy to use format. For the person who said his in-app purchases didn’t show up on his other devices, try going to MyRadar’s settings on your other devices and “Restore previous purchases.” I had the same complaint until I discovered this procedure. Since I live in northeast Florida, I will purchase the $2.99 Hurricane Tracker before the next hurricane season rolls around. 4 September 2018 update. I really like the new search feature included in the most recent update that allows the easy addition of other locations.
Overall a nice app
by ...Jason... on 2018/09/05 10:27
Well if I were to judge this as a weather app alone it wouldn’t get very far, but as a radar it works better than expected, exceeding most I’ve tried. I would remove the photo future unless you can get it working properly because it rarely if ever uploads my photos to the map or even to the tab “my photos”. I love the wind directional graphics/jet stream on the screen, that really helps you get a good eye on the general direction of a storm unlike the “false forecasts” most other apps rely on. As one other user mentioned, the forest fire information is an A+ as it does provide a great benefit, sure fires change quickly but I was able to monitor a fire in Southern Oregon close to my parents from Georgia which eased my mind a bit during an uncertain time. Keep up the good work!!

Description
Thanks to everyone for making MyRadar so successful, with over 50 million downloads! MyRadar is a fast, powerful, easy-to-use weather app that displays animated weather radar around your current location and to quickly show what weather is coming your way. Just start the app; your location pops up with animated live radar, with radar loop lengths of up to two hours. This basic functionality provides the quickest way to get a snapshot of the weather on-the-go, and it's what has made MyRadar so successful over the years. Check your phone and get an instant assessment of the weather that will impact your day. One of the most useful features in MyRadar is the ability to provide advanced rain alerts; our patent-pending process for predicting hyper-local rainfall is the most accurate in the industry. Instead of having to check the app all the time, MyRadar will send you an alert up to an hour in advance as to when the rain will arrive at your current location, down to the minute, including details on intensity and duration. These alerts can be a life saver when you're on-the-go and don't always have time to check the weather - our systems will proactively do the work for you and let you know in advance before the rain hits. In addition to the live radar, MyRadar has an ever-increasing list of weather and environmentally-related data layers that you can overlay on top of the map; our animated winds layer shows a breathtaking visual representation of both surface winds and winds at the jetstream level; the frontal boundaries layer shows high and low pressure systems as well as frontal boundaries themselves; the earthquakes layer is a great way to stay on top of the latest reports on seismic activity, completely customizable as to severity and time; our hurricane layer allows users to stay on top of the latest tropical storm and hurricane activity throughout the world; the aviation layer overlays AIRMETs, SIGMETs and other aviation-related data, including the ability to track flights and display their IFR flight plans and paths, and the "wildfires" layer allows users to stay abreast of the latest fire activity around the United States. MyRadar also has the ability to send weather and environmental alerts, including alerts from the National Weather Service, such as Tornado and Severe Weather alerts. A new feature introduced in this version of MyRadar includes the ability to receive alerts based off of Tropical Storm and Hurricane activity; you can configure the app to send you an alert any time a tropical storm or hurricane forms, or is upgraded or downgraded. In addition to the free features of the app, additional upgrades are available, including real-time hurricane tracking - great for the start of hurricane season. The hurricane tracker provides additional data above and beyond the free version, including the cone of probability for tropical storm/hurricane forecast tracks, and it also includes a detailed synopsis from the National Hurricane Center. The premium upgrades also include the professional radar pack, which allows greater detail of radar from individual stations. Users can select individual radar stations around the US, select the radar tilt angle, and also change the radar product being displayed, including base reflectivity and wind velocity - great for experienced weather buffs looks to stay on top of possible tornado formation. Download MyRadar today and try it out! * Aviation Charts subscription (not required in order to use MyRadar) ($24.99 USD per YEAR) * Payments will be charged to your iTunes account * Account will be charged for renewal within 24-hours prior to the end of the current period * Auto-renewal may be turned off at any time by going to your settings in the iTunes Store after purchase.

This app is the best way to keep up with the ever changing Florida weather. I work in the bar business and one of the bars I manage is outdoors. This app has been my go to in regards to helping with the never ending battle of how to stag in always changing conditions. Five stars!
Better than NOAA
by BruceLueckenhoff on 2020/07/05 03:07
I used to use the NOAA app but my hubby introduced me to this app and I must admit it’s better. It seems to update faster. I wish the background would be blue during the day but at least it is accurate

Drone Pilot’s Dream!
by ThumbTD on 2020/07/04 20:46
I am a drone enthusiast. I own several of them and love to fly in places other drone pilots typically do not. This means lots of “far from humans” locations...and, that can also mean difficulty in getting accurate weather information, particularly current wind data. My Radar app is a COMPLETE GOD-SEND for this! You must go into the “layers” and turn on Wind, but once the layer is active it is truly awesome. Highly recommended for Drone Pilots!!
BEST RADAR APP EVER

I go fishing. Mow grass or just to go out. I can open this app and see if any rain is coming. I would rate it 10 stars if I could

If you want to see what’s going on overhead a few miles away, My Radar gives you time to get inside. It will also show when you still have time for bike ride even though the cloud cover is thick. This is an invaluable tool when your next move is driven by the incoming weather.

Now I’m not great with computers so I am probably missing it but on that note. I wish the radar would go out a little further in the future. I can’t seam to find out how to do that but I really love the radar because I ride a motorcycle and can keep an eye on the rain. Or that that stops me. I just like knowing what’s coming up.

Great to be able to se what is coming our way!
Very Slow Loading
by KBKinfinity on 2020/07/02 15:05
Lately, this app has been very slow to load. This is made worse by the fact that the radar overlay is the last thing to load. It can take several minutes for the current radar image to shore up. Outside of that, which is a real bummer, this is one of the best apps I have, and I use it daily.
Make my job easier.

I am a painting contractor in FL. The rain here is difficult to predict. It can be pouring in the backyard and dry in the front. This app provides me accurate real time images of what the rain is doing. With this app I am able to make educated decisions on whether or not we will keep putting paint in the wall or wrap things up for the day.
Best Radar App
by davidi09 on 2020/07/02 04:07
This is the best radar app I’ve ever used to date. I can see wind direction, lightning strikes, precipitation, and it’s user friendly!
My radar
by G1949 on 2020/07/02 02:30
I like the fact that I can see what weather is coming to my area in the next hour. Much more accurate than watching television weathermen.

Great app for boating. No longer a need for expensive marine radar. Concerning weather everything you need to know is on your phone. Great app no complaints.

Awesome Radar
Great app

Of the many apps with radar that I’ve used over the years this one has the best clarity and is quite precise
This is 1 great app
by monieman1 on 2020/07/02 00:52
This app is as accurate as you can get it is I would say the best.

Tracking the POIs is easier when your home point is easy to follow.
A Real Life Saver
by TN PRO on 2020/07/01 23:51
Having been a PGA Golf Professional for over 27 years I see technology like this changing the way courses monitor storms and danger posed to players. I cannot list the number of times I’ve been on the course and may have kept playing were it not for being able to see what exactly is coming over the ridge. I’d say it easily gives a player an extra 10-15 minutes warning of when they should head for a safe area. It has helped give the player more responsibility for their safety rather than rely solely on the facility to make the call.
Love MyRadar
by wuick chopd on 2020/07/01 23:36
Very convenient when wondering about your local surroundings, and anywhere you like. I like the winds and the earthquake alerts . Also get a geography lesson along with it.
Quick access to radar
by JGLUNS on 2020/07/01 23:34
Awesomely quick access to radar, pinpoint to where you are or search for where you’re going! Much appreciated!
Best radar app
by Warren Martin on 2020/07/01 22:39
THE best radar app if radar is your #1 priority. In S AZ, during monsoon especially, it has the best and most accurate info. It is even better than local news stations IMHO.
Boating asset

My Radar
by tombricker1 on 2020/07/01 21:20
I absolutely love this weather app. It provides me with very accurate notifications on rain and lightning which is critical for boaters. The radar is so easy to read and can be modified for different views.
Great app
by amphilly on 2020/07/01 20:18
This is a very straightforward and helpful app that we use often.
Super Good!

When riding a motorcycle the last thing you wanna do is get wet good thing about this app is you can keep an eye on the storms and track them very accurately.
Better than the rest for sure!!

Yep, it shows me when liquid is going to fall from the sky like I hoped.
The only weather app you’ll need
by bgurney89 on 2020/07/01 18:06
By far the most accurate and information laden weather app available. I don’t even bother with apple’s blind weather forecast anymore.
#1 weather app
by D.A.Baiden on 2020/07/01 17:28
I use this app everyday because we farm. It has been a great tool for me! Thanks
Pretty good, love this app
by AnonymousUnknownUser on 2020/07/01 16:09
I love this app, it’s super helpful to be able to see the forecast and radar. However, it only shows you events and past radar not the upcoming one. So you pretty much have to assume and guess where a storm will hit. I think there should be an option to look at the past radar but also see the future predictions.
Little squares moving on radar
by nutmegstate on 2020/07/01 16:01
On my new iPad the radar shows a bunch of little squares for rain and clouds. Same app on Android has nice smooth edges. Other than that not bad. May have to keep looking because I don’t like the presentation. Edit....found a hi def setting and display is much better, up to 5 stars.
Thank you
by CharlesAr1962 on 2019/12/28 20:44
It seems life has become so fast paced and hectic for most of us that we communicate mostly to complain and express our frustration with the “things” in our life, or complain about life itself. We often forget to be thankful for the things we actually have, and most importantly to those that work hard behind the scenes to make those good things possible. So I’m writing this review as a user of your radar program for the past several years, just to say Thank You! I truly appreciate all the work that goes into making, improving and maintaining this program. There are some that would say is not perfect for this or the other reason, but perfection is hardly ever achieved in life, and the definition of perfection is usually in the eye of the beholder. For me, living in an area of the country with sudden, often unpredictable and dangerous weather (as in thunderstorms and tornadoes) I can say your program has kept me and my family out of harms way many times. Perfect? Perhaps not in some users minds. But for me has been a life saver (LITERALLY) more than once in this many years. So once more, thank you for all you do. I appreciate your help in keeping me and my family safe from the elements.
Old Radar Loop, 60% accurate, crashes etc
by happyfeet 20017 on 2019/07/06 19:14
The “live radar” loop runs 2 hours ~20 mins past time. The will rain or storm times graph & time feature is wrong 60% of the time. I have my home marked with a star ( it only allows me to 1 star location tho) Worst is it gives me weather, alerts & warnings for a town 15 + miles away, in a different county that gets different weather & warnings. Ugh. When we were traveling and hit bad weather it was a worthless app. It kept kicking me back home 400+miles then kept crashing all cause I was trying to pull weather from my current location. It started draining my battery, freezing, unavailable data, crashing. If I’m home in my marked Location the app never freezes, crashes, etc. My husband uses a NOAA app (free) and I thought I was downloading the same one he has. No this one is horrible compared to the one he uses. The one he uses gives him current road conditions/warnings/accidents/ radar etc as he’s traveling and actually shows the town we live closest to (3 miles) correct county & he has locations (stars) marked all over the place. The (free) NOAA app he uses didn’t have a melt down when we were out of town or traveling and worked great.. I’m uninstalling this app and looking for the app my husband uses..Idk why so many different NOAA apps are available but lessons learned they are not all equal. The one he uses offers upgrades but the free version works good & has adds just like this one.
Great Radar App
by pryoho on 2020/03/22 17:05
I’ve tried six or seven weather/radar apps and My Radar is the best one for my purposes. Most apps give you the weather when you open them, and then you have to find the radar button. I like the radar on screen when I open the app. All weather reports are an average of weather for your area. Even My Radar will notify my that it will begin raining in 12 minutes. But when I check the radar the rain cell is moving just north of me, so no rain at my location. I also like that the radar always on, I don’t have to start it or restart it. The layers feature is excellent with easy access so I can turn on temperature, wind speed, clouds, fronts, earthquakes, warnings and watches, aviation layers, and several more. You can choose the type of map with the features that suit you, and you can adjust the radar features for speed, timing and opacity. This is truly a radar app that includes excellent weather information. Also enjoy seeing the weather radar anywhere in the world just by moving the map. Highly recommended.
I Miss the Old Storm app!!
by Umphphreak6 on 2018/11/27 17:27
Is there a way to see the future radar like the old Storm app? Is that in the premium packet because my radar ends 10 mins before the actual time & I want to know the forecast radar for the next hour. Also, if I press on a fire icon & read about it, when I go bk to the map, the time on the animation slider becomes 8 hours off. I don’t think the actual radar changes. I only know that I have to close & reopen the app to get the time back to ending 10 minutes before the actual time. This makes me wonder if I can trust the accuracy of this app. Plus, it’s been raining here nonstop for 6 hours but the radar shows periods of no rain. It’s also really annoying when the slightest tap or zooming in on the map will start changing the cities up above because of the crosshairs. And when I swipe left, or right to scroll through my favorite cities, nothing happens- it won’t scroll through the cities even though the stars are highlighted. I miss being able to zoom in & see exactly where it’s going to be raining & being able to chose between 1 hour or 5 hours in the future & clicking on the storm cells & find out the speed & the danger associated with each one, as I could in the old Storm app. It truly was the best weather app out there! I will change my 2 star rating if I can find the future radar.
Good but needs accuracy fix
by Trophy Husband on 2020/03/04 20:58
I've used this app for about a year on several IOS devices. I like the simplicity to quickly see the radar and incoming weather without a lot of navigating, and also easily zoom in or out. I have found however that many times the radar overlay is not accurate with the location of the actual precipitation on the map. Today for example, the map accurately showed my location but the radar indicated heavy rain over me when it actually was about a mile away from my observations. So, until this is corrected the app is useful as a general view of what might be approaching but not accurate to a precise level. Also, I've noticed that the precipitation levels on the map are somewhat exaggerated over what is actually occurring. Overall, it's useful if you want a simple view of the radar and some other basic functions. Update 3/3/20: I was hopeful for improvements in the new update, it has a new icon and title page, but same issues exist. Accuracy is off- radar shows rain at my house and it’s not doing anything. Notifications are not reliable, they stop working after a while even with background app refresh enabled. Disappointed.
OOPS! Now my radar works again!
by _Blessed_ on 2019/07/23 17:47
Recently, I wrote a critical review complaining that this app had become so bloated with extra features that the basic radar feature stopped working. After a week of not receiving any acknowledgement of my support request, I sent an email to corporate that got a response. However, none of the suggestions that were offered to me worked, and the developers never responded to the diagnostic file that they requested and which I provided. I gave up, deleted the app, but then re-installed it after I learned of a new update. But the radar still would not load. In preparing to send another request for help, I discovered the problem! My iPad was set to the wrong time zone (London) as a result of a recent trip. Once the time zone agreed with my physical location, the radar layer displayed properly. I still believe that the app is becoming bloated, and I’ve learned that support is often difficult to reach, but this app deserves more than the one-star that I previously gave it. If they are able to improve support by offering faster responses and a knowledge base, it will be a 5-star app. Until then, I’m changing my 1-star review to a 4-star review.
Great App!
by red pills rule on 2018/10/09 19:13
Very Accurate, but I have suggestions. It's supposed to provide useful info for pilots. I really appreciate the inclusion of the fire locator function so I can tell smoke clouds by wind direction. However, VOG and Saharan Desert Dust also would be pertinent info. I'm not a pilot, but as a person who doesn't have breathing problems unless exposed to a trigger, I'd be willing to pay extra to get fire smoke clouds, VOG, and Saharan Dust mappers so I know when the clouds reach my area and when to wear a mask or stay indoors and change my air filter after the condition passes. It would probably be best to toggle this info so as not to overcrowd the map. Also nice would be a show of the jet-streams, fronts, high pressure systems like the Bermuda High that are pertinent to hurricane tracks, and dry air and moist air indicators to see whether fronts are coming in wet or dry. The dumbed down weather nowadays rarely shows these indicators that people used to rely on to predict the weather themselves (often better than the meteorologists). If you already have this for purchase, please let me know, or consider adding.
Great fee app, great paid app
by CarterInTheBar on 2018/09/13 14:22
I switched over to this app after Weather Underground’s “Storm” radar app was obsoleted and replaced by the terrible sequel by The Weather Channel. Immediately, I appreciated all the layers that this app has, and the customization that it’s capable of. I also like that while you can get a “basic” paid functionality (do it! Even if you don’t mind the ads, support people who make quality apps!), you can upgrade different bits of functionality a la carte, as you need them. For example, while I’m a private pilot, I’m not actively flying currently. But if I DO get back into it, the aviation charts functionality is built into the app, for an annual subscription (which makes sense, since av charts update and need to be kept current). Excellent, excellent app. The only suggestion that comes to mind is to enhance the functionality of the “storm center” feature so that the center moves with the time-lapse. Currently, it is stationary, and stays in the position it is in the latest radar frame, as the radar time lapse “catches up” to it.
I have used My Radar for 6 years
by Mike on the Columbia on 2020/06/20 02:55
I originally purchased this app 6 years ago. I needed a reliable radar source that I could use at my place of work. At that time I superintended bulk cargo loading operations onto ships for export. The cargo was weather sensitive. We could not load cargo in the rain. When you have a gang of very expensive Longshore labor standing by for weather, it was critical to be able to reference MyRadar to look for windows of dry weather so we could load. This app gave me the ability to see when weather was coming and going. I was able to ready the gang prior to the dry windows, so I could maximize my loading windows. Needless to say, this app is accurate in my experience and it helped save a lot of money in gang standby time. Customers were also happy to sail their vessels earlier than expected in many cases. I still regularly use and rely on MyRadar in my retirement years, for camping, anticipating when to come in from sitting in my backyard. I love the “layers” options. I feel this puts them above other radar apps.
When beauty enhances accuracy
by Dr.Cruise on 2018/09/19 21:04
There’s lots to be said for simplicity. This app delivers clear, dynamic, and beautiful radar images quickly. Moreover, the images provided appear to provide (in my opinion) a better indication as to how a storm is developing and moving. I’m able to look out from 7600ft to the south and west from the southern Sangre de Christos, taking in a thousand square miles of view shed and storms up to 100 miles away. I can watch individual storm cells developing and compare them to what I see on my screens. I’ve tried dozens of other apps and when it really matters I’ll always revert to the raw NEXRAD feed, toggling between clutter on & off when making important go/no go decisions for travel in remote areas. But this is the radar app I keep coming back to. I wish I understood why it’s better. It may be due to the fact it includes some of the info in a “clutter included” nexrad image without including too much of the noise. It also smooths out gaps in the radar image caused by inversions, dust, etc. Nice work, MyRadar developers!
My favorite app!
by barbcrayola on 2019/01/22 12:56
I’m a lover of skies, weather and being out of doors. As an organizer of an outdoor adventure group of active retirees, My Radar is perfect for helping me plan and to know when it’s safe to be out on the trails and water. Thanks to using My Radar, many times while out kayaking we have known to cut our paddle short and head back to safety when we see that a sudden storm has popped up and is coming our way. We also have had times where we could see on My Radar that the storm’s path would skirt past us so have been able to stay out enjoying instead of retreating. As a former middle school teacher when taking 7th graders on a Cape Cod hike we were able to show the students why they really did need to don their rain gear as a soaking deluge was destined to hit in a few minutes. When planning to fly somewhere, or just curious, I can see the weather, in most places, all over the world! I really appreciate and love My Radar and I highly recommend it to everyone!
THIS APP SELL YOUR LOCATION TO 3RD PARTIES
by @Naisaan on 2018/09/08 05:18
I loved MyRadar it was so well designed helped me figure out if I should stay inside & wait 5 minutes to stay dry or go out side & bite the bullet on getting wet. It was Truly a wonderful app, which is why it blows my mind that they decided to SELL THEIR USER’S LOCATION TO DATA MONETIZATION COMPANIES MAKE A LITTLE EXTRA MONEY. I understand apps need to make money I get that, but selling my & every other users’ location to make money is unethical. One might so “oh everyone sells your data what’s the big deal” all of it to me is immoral but this app goes above and beyond the levels of immortality by selling “both precise location and other sensitive customer data to data monetization companies "at all times, constantly" sometimes without customers being aware of the location data collection. The information is used for purposes like creating databases for ad targeting.” Even if this app pledges to stop selling my CURRENT LOCATION I won’t re-download, how can I trust them? If there were any staff who worked on this app & didn’t know about this I’m sorry that this is impacting you. But to the screwup leadership that made the decision to SELL OUR CURRENT LOCATION I’m glad that this story is finally out in the open. Nobody will trust you now.
Great Replacement for Wunderground
by MPlanchard on 2020/02/01 22:10
Wunderground seems to have recently lost their way, removing the super useful lock screen widget with daily and weekly forecast graphs, and making useful weather information harder to discover in-app. I tried out about ten weather apps looking for something to replace it, and this is by far the best! Displaying the temperature and precipitation for the day and upcoming week as a graph with lines is SO MUCH nicer and easier to parse than a bunch of icons. It’s super nice that this is available on the lock screen widget. Also, the radar display is absolutely fantastic, beating the heck out of wunderground’s, even before their recent descent into madness. It’s clear the MyRadar team has a good sense for what people actually use the app for (like, you know, checking the weather for the upcoming day), and they make those things as easy and straightforward to access as possible. Keep it up! I will definitely be paying the super reasonable $10/year to support something so useful.
My Radar
by fuzzydove1 on 2020/03/22 19:30
I’ve lived in Ga. since getting out of the military and every year when the seasons change from winter to summer and from summer to fall we have tornados, back in 1973 we lost our home to a tornado, back then we didn’t have anything like My Radar, nowadays we have all kind of warnings, T.V. Radio, and weather programs on computers, I pads, and cell phones; I’ve tried a lot of different weather radars and I always come back to My Radar , it’s the best one I’ve tried, The screens are clear the clouds are different colors and it tells you when there is a possibility of severe weather. My Radar can be set up to each persons preference, it is also available for pilots and can be setup that way, it’s just an all around great weather program. The program can be set up to send weather notices to a smart phone or from your computer to your I-pad. This program beats all off the others hands down. Try it and you will see for your self, James D. Athens, Ga.
Where did the good app go??
by Sadness10 on 2019/06/26 21:46
Open the app and see the local radar…Boom! Swipe left or right through my favorite locations and see the radar for those places…Boom! That’s what used to happen. Simple, perfect; I couldn’t ask for much more. Now I don’t see the radar. I see the data instead. Then I can’t slide the panel up for several seconds, and when I finally can I am greeted by the radar for the entire western hemisphere. What is up?? This app no longer does what I need to do quickly and efficiently, the reason I installed it a long time ago in the first place. Swiping from one favorite location to the next Is no longer reliable, either doing nothing or including places that I’ve never heard of and did not mark. When I tell it to locate me, I get a dot at my location on a map of the entire western hemisphere, and then zooming in doesn’t happen smoothly and I end up in the middle of the Gulf of Mexico, after which I have to zoom back out and then try to zoom back in. I don’t see any reason to keep this app any longer. And when this app is in the foreground my phone begins to heat up; and I just went through the battery replacement thing so I don’t want to toast my new battery.
Time means Life or Death
by HASHTAGMAP on 2019/07/01 12:26
This is the first and only app that I can count on with 100% certainty when it really matters. I am watching weather patterns develop and occurring in “Real Time”. I can actually predict what, where, and when without the need to “Tune in” to a local station. See you later “Weather Bug!”. No kidding! I am able to determine within the accuracy of minutes or even seconds...(my wife thinks I’m taking meteorology on the side) of when the wind will start swirling the trees in the woods, when the first rain droplets will begin, when the droplets will suddenly become a deluge and when it’s time to get into our life saving place of refuge. Let’s face it, this app is the same app our friendly local weather forecaster’s are looking at. I don’t think I need to have the TV on or a talking head telling me something I can see with my own eyes. That puts me at a tremendous lifesaving advantage when every second counts! Get MyRadar App NOW!
Love BUT
by Litekid79 on 2019/08/22 18:51
Have been using this App since moved to FL over 10 yrs ago. It’s great! The hurricane tracker is excellent & love watching Leslie...(more on this later). Here is where the BUT comes in. With every update we get, granted, the app “DOES” improve.....like the new global feature (something had at start, but went away. Now it’s back), along w/ some other cool features. What isn’t great is loading times. On the new iPad Pro 11” this app “feels” slow & loads slower each update that’s pushed out. I’m worried when iOS 13 hits....what will happen! Also, know Leslie can’t be in every weather report....needs a life, but she’s the face of the App, the person that helped us through hurricane after hurricane when couldn’t get any other information....KEEP that in mind, & keep her put & happy! The newish Fast Forecast isn’t as catchy as old one... All in all, get the app more responsive like used to be, less crashing & will change stars back to 5/5. Until than...dinged you 1.5 stars. Sorry....want it awesome like used to be! My score= 3.5/5
Updated: My go to for planning travel and daily activities, avoiding flash floods
by Frog Granite on 2019/07/22 00:45
I want to upgrade my review to five stars. With the regular releases and well considered feature additions, I can tell this team has considerable experience, from app design through to application back-end infrastructure and deployment. It has been very reliable for many months and it is a complex app; I appreciate the well thought out integrations that keep coming. Personally, I use this prior to canyon hiking in known flash flood areas. Helps to keep me from appearing on the nightly news! Suggestion: Add dew point as a future feature. Important to us here in Arizona. === Previous: This has been one of my favorite ‘go to’ apps for two-plus years. But, it has had it’s quirks on the iPad Pro 12.9”, and now with the iOS 12 release it hangs and crashes continuously. I hope a tested release is in the works for this new OS version.
Phone app great...Watch app., not so much
by BusaBud on 2018/01/31 13:15
I have used this app for years and it has always been great and have recommended it everyone I know. I got a Apple Watch this year and was excited to see that there was an My Radar app for it. It was a paid upgrade, but app has been so good for so long, I bought this it. First off, the watch radar is not animated, which is a huge disappointment. A snapshot of radar doesn’t show me direction of movement, as well as closing speed, and if it building or not. Second, it was slow and buggy as all get out. Now, at some point it has disappeared from my watch all together. I reset the watch, phone, and reinstalled the app on the phone completely. I restored the watch purchase and nothing is there. The watch control center on the phone doesn’t even show that there is a My Radar app all. Update: The patch released allowed me to get the app back on the watch. I will update if the performance is improved.
De-stresses storm forecasts
by Eyestothehills on 2017/10/13 11:16
I love this app! I live In a very storm-prone area, and I stress out to the max when storms are forecast for fear of yet more downed trees and damage. But now, I can look and see for myself where a storm is actually heading, and I don't fret needlessly when danger is nowhere near. Just last week I saved myself a lot of grief using this app, when the forecasted storm decided to head elsewhere and I was aware of it. Yay! And the local DC weather forecasts just ignore this area of the nearby Piedmont. So who needs them anymore? I have my app now and the weather forecasters can go crawl under a rock. HOWEVER-- the pop up ads at the bottom are much too large, and they obliterate much of the screen. I get why they're there, but they shouldn't be that big. They're coming with such frequency now that I'm starting to look for another weather app! Otherwise I would've given this five stars.
I was wrong to complain!
by R&MsD on 2018/10/17 22:08
I complained about My Radar app annoying me with a pop up before I could even see the radar. We were about to have a big storm so I quickly wrote to complain about the annoyance and threatened to find a different radar app. Well, after checking out a bunch of other radar apps, none of them were as good as My Radar which is probably why I chose it in the first place! I was wrong to complain because this really is the best of the lot!. Get it and you will see for yourself. No matter where I am, it shows the weather system surrounding me and it is accurate! The notifications of rain, severe weather, etc. are correct within minutes. And I can see an expanded view for the entire region or continent or ocean of interest, or a very close in view! My Radar is still my go to weather app, especially during hurricane season. Thank you.
Great app, and growing
by Kai Blue__ on 2020/03/14 16:24
Ive used this app for the past year as my main radar and overview weather app for my flight school needs. As far as accuracy goes it is the most accurate radar ive used. Some guy was ranting in the reviews about how its not accurate and its old data, blah, blah, blah. I have many other live weather resources such as awos and asos as well as a couple other sources to pull weather data from and i can ensure you this app is accurate. Its interface is great and there arent any pop up ads, which is great for a freebie. There is just a tiny bar on the bottom that plays ads in the background as you use the radar which is totally fine for me because im cheap and dont care enough to subscribe, which is a happy medium. The quality has gone up since i originally got the app as well. The clouds used to look pixelated and really bad but now they have definition and you can tell which parts are thicker and thinner and it really gives them depth now which is a huge game changer. I think something that i would love to see is cloud layers and wind speed by altitude, IF I COULD SEE CLOUD CEILINGS I WOULD SUBSCRIBE IN A HEART BEAT. Other than that the app is perfect, the notifications are neat too because it will tell you light rain stopping in maybe an hour, or something of that nature. Anyway its a great app and the dev team is doing a great job!
Premium Features
by Mahkel2 on 2019/09/20 09:17
I’ve had this app for over 7 years and I use it pretty regularly because I tend to live in places where weather can be destructive. When I first downloaded the app there were no premium upgrades, everything was included. When included features were made premium there was a time that they were included for long time app users, this has gone away and I don’t really understand why? When app users are provided with a certain service for free it doesn’t seem right to begin to charge them for it with no real added features for the customer. Also, I don’t feel that it is right that the features that are now premium upgrades include real life saving features, like hurricane tracking. This is a feature that can really help people, but only if they can afford it! Please bring this app back to the great app it used to be!
Buy an umbrella or get this app...or both, both is also good.
by Jc0912 on 2018/07/30 23:10
The alternative to this app is carrying an umbrella all the time. This app is cheaper than an umbrella. I like this app. I’ve used this app many times to avoid getting soaked in a sudden down pour when running to my car. Whether leaving work or at the grocery store this app gives you the tool needed to decide when to run or when to just chill a few minutes and let it pass. Why guess when the rain will stop when it’s right at your fingertips? This app will tell you when it’s likely to rain in a few mins. Hello? Siri won’t do that for you! Wake up people! Know when it’s gonna stop raining. Don’t be that fool running through the parking lot getting soaking wet when it’s gonna stop raining in just a couple mins. I’ve tried warning people they scoffed at me. They were wet fools. I was not. Don’t be a wet fool.
Best radar of all
by val naples on 2019/09/03 12:44
Have several radar apps on my phone and many times I am shut out or there’s a commercial advertisement in the center of the radar scene or I can’t get the hurricane far east enough on my radar screen because the radar doesn’t go that far but My radar is fabulous it it’s dark screen you can see the light colors of the tornadoes or the in the hurricane brightly colored the names of the cities are bright and I can read them against the black background it’s fabulous I just love it I use it all the time now and I hope that others will enjoy The concept of the dark screen with the light writing in the very bright hurricane views and in the future whatever it will show of weather that you’ll be able to see it clearly great work My radar have several radar apps on my phone and many times I am not able to see anything.
This is by far the best wether radar on the App Store
by RalphRogers on 2018/08/13 03:59
So far I’ve installed the local weather app and the weather bug app, the noaa weather radar, not to mention accuweather and was annoyed when I ran them all side by side and had different images from each. Later I realized out of all the maps the my radar was the most updated one and the most accurate one of the bunch. Showing rain when it was actually raining and the severity of the storm being exactly what it was... I always assumed they were the same , using the same radars but never had much luck until I started using “my radar”. I mow lawns so knowing where the rain actually is and when it’s coming means staying dry in my line of work. Also this is the first review I’ve ever written and wouldn’t take the time if this wasn’t truly a honest app that works and shows accurate information
Love this app
by loving the word 47 on 2019/07/31 02:06
I’ve been using this app for around two to three years I guess. I’m a weather fanatic lol. I used to use the weather channel app, and I used to use two others. Primarily I was looking for just a weather radar map when I found the app. I’m not sure but I think when I first found the app it had like storm track like directional boxes which I love but cannot fig out of its still there sense the revision. (Minor thing if it was there before and not now). I really really love this app. It’s my go to and only weather app I use. The forecasts are reliable. The warnings, watches, and alerts are timely, the ease of use is spot on. Now I’ve lived in northern Vermont, Western Mass, and have traveled through New England. No matter where I am, the app works and is reliable. I also like all the customizable features. Shout out to the app developers, this app is stellar!!!
Great app! Devs please read :)
by SYCLUS on 2018/09/11 18:48
This app has it all to rain, wind, hurricanes, fires, earthquakes and more. Its amazing that we can view them all within this app. Not to mention that they notify you when its going to rain, and its accurate! After getting the notification a minute later it started raining. However I really wish we could revive rain alerts for all types of rain. Devs if you’re reading this please add this in the next update, I would really love to know when its going to be light rain or heavy. Would be better than just one type of alert! You could also add the feature that send us notifications on hurricane updates that we choose to see. So all we have to do is click on the hurricane then click a button like “keep me updated”. Would love these features!!! Keep it up I love the app :)
BUYER BEWARE!
by amyliz277 on 2018/07/07 04:31
I’ve been using this app for years! I mean years! So when my HURRICANE PRO app maker retired last year and the app went dormant I had to find a new hurricane tracking app. So looking at my options and prices. Your $2.99 to upgrade on My Radar seemed like a steal! Well it’s NOT maker of the product and ppl reading my review! For $2.99 when you upgrade in the app luckily I hit Upgrade on Hurricane Tracker or whatever it is and I thought I would get what was all listed the upgrade...UM NO YOU DON’T!!! Well you know what you can take you $2.99 plus tax and stick it up your ⭐️🐟! Seriously! I would have given it 5 freaking stars if you had given me what you advertised for the PRO but nope you didn’t....so here I am complaining and I want a freaking damm refund! Once I get my refund I will never use this app again! I will be deleting it for good after this! It’s the principle of the matter! Misleading and not honest that is what you are! Don’t spend your $2.99 or you will be disappointed people! Money back plus my tax developer of this awesomely crappy app! I’m going to complain till I can’t!
Love this app
by Amateur star gazer on 2019/09/13 05:49
I got this app because I wanted a really good radar app. I wasn’t looking for anything else. It fit the bill beautifully. Literally. The graphics are beautiful. And then it kept getting better. My favorite recent features are the option to show jet stream winds (rather than surface winds, which are still available) and the option to show weather fronts. In short, this is starting to show the weather features that I really value to understand why what’s happening is happening. Then I know how much stock to put in the forecast! So it has turned out to be much more than the basic radar app that I expected, although it still fills that bill. I should also say that I have not added on a lot of extra features. I’m very satisfied with the app just as it comes. Okay, I removed the ads...
Actionable local weather information
by Ad Veritas on 2019/12/01 05:20
Living in an area with several micro-climates I really appreciate the ability of this app to give me timely information specific to my current location. If I’m hiking in mountainous terrain or a canyon 20-30 miles from my house I can center the crosshairs of the app’s map on the GPS location of my iphone and find out the weather that’s going to impact me in a short time. If I’m not using the app I still receive warnings in the form of a banner on my phone advising me of rain, snow, hail, wind events, flash flooding, and the expected time and intensity so I can make preparations if needed. The current radar picture around my location is always accessible. “MY Radar” is really a great name for this app. I have found no need to use the previous weather apps that have been on my phone.
Swing and a Miss - Dated Data
by MaxFla72 on 2018/12/09 17:39
Poor view of the weather ten minutes ago. After looking for a replacement for a great weather app taken over and destroyed by the Weather Channel I thought I might have found it. With a an extra yearly subscription of $10 I could get “”unfiltered individual NEXRAD reflectivity and velocity data.” This option should allow filtering out ground clutter and seeing better the strength of a storm system. What I got was there unknown angles most likely still composite of various angles and no wind velocity. You can’t get a static view only the video that ends ten minutes in the past. Unfiltered should equal live radar and not a delayed product. Control of the angle should include degree by degree adjustment. It should be a real-time scan and not some composite video. Wasted money if you want the true unfiltered radar and a total fake representation of what you’re paying for in the upgrade. More of the same when it comes to rip-off promotions of “upgrades” from the Apple Store.
Best weather app
by lliddell.xi on 2017/11/21 12:46
Typically I do not write reviews but when an app really impressed me I want to send some support. First off looking for a weather app I have one criteria, to be accurate looking in the App Store there are about a dozen different weather apps and only one works it becomes questionable the reputations of the others. Living in Wisconsin with winters i need to know if, when and how much snow will be coming. Or maybe I’m just crazy and like to know those things. Anyways this app is spot on accurate. Better yet the map options and the clarity of the map, plus the speed at which the radar works is amazing. I tried the free app and only after a week I bought the app. For what “my radar pro” offers I would have paid double, because it simply is the best. No other weather app even comes close!
Better than Storm
by Kaveman2010 on 2019/08/20 23:14
I really loved the original Storm app, but it has been turned into useless money-grabbing crap. MyRadar is a great alternative. The free version is easy to use and informative, with a particular exception. I have the app set to follow my location always. The idea, of course, is that whenever I open the app I should see the weather for my current location. And when I’m not using the app, any notification from MyRadar should regard my current location. But, that isn’t happening. Whenever I open the app, the map and weather shows the previous location of when I last opened it, and any notifications I get are about that same previous location, never my current location. As a truck driver that drives 48 states and Canada, I kind of need to know what to expect down the road. If that could be fixed, this app would be perfect for me.
Below the cloud
by Sam Bam The Man on 2019/05/02 15:58
I like the app because I am able to control how far out from my location I can look. The only complaint that I have is, I have to work to get to my location. If I have purchased this application it should open to my location and not have to zoom out to fine my location, I know there is a blue dot for the user to zoom out from, the user expects once the application opens that they will see at once what is happening at their location. I guess I am trying to think for every user, no one can do that but the God that created all things, but God decided not to do that, but let man, woman and the Angels make their own decisions about what they prefer. So I prefer to open the application and go directly to my location on the map, that is all I have to say about that!
MyRadar
by CFIsteve on 2018/09/14 13:52
I’ve earned a commercial pilot license With a certified flight instructor (CFI) rating. I have a lot of weather (Wx) knowledge and experience. You learn more when you are actually up there flying in the Wx. Your Wx app is extremely flexible by using the robust layers feature. There is even an aviation layer that shows things that pilots need to know about. It’s been interesting watching Florence with your app. I did spend $2.99 for an in app purchase of your valuable hurricane tracker. One thing though it wasn’t obvious if that was a one time purchase or if it was a subscription of some sort. To sum it up I enjoy using your app. It’s accurate and shows a lot more than just weather- even earthquakes and areas of flooding. And, apparently you can look at things all over the world. Keep up the good work on your MyRadar app
Great app for current radar
by hurricane guru on 2018/08/27 14:59
This app has nice features. I use it all the time. Can get wind direction arrows and advisories. Can add hurricane tracking which is great since I live on the south east coast. Would be better if the radar pics updated more often than once every 10 minutes- especially for boating and tracking local tornados when waiting in the safe room for the bad weather to clear. It would also be better if the % chance of rain and temp graphs were on a more fixed scale or increments that made the math easier at a glance. It appears the computer auto scales which is not always the way a person would do it...otherwise I would have given 5 stars. I also like the percent chance of rain in the next hr graph broken down in 15 min increments- it’s a nice feature...
You can see the fronts!
by Garpie on 2019/09/21 23:41
I love this app. I have had it for a few years as my main radar app, but somewhere along the line they added the option to show the fronts as a layer on the map (or I missed it from the start)! Finally! I used to love WU Storm before they sold it to the weather channel, because you could layer winds and fronts over the precip on the radar, plus it had all kinds of useful forecast and conditions info. Now this app had all that too. The wind animation is the best I’ve seen, you can add fronts, and it has almost all the forecast and conditions info I want. Has a widget too. Now if they could just add future radar it would be the ultimate app. It seems very accurate too. I work outside, and the weather usually matches this app’s predictions. Thanks for an awesome weather app!
In The Eye Of The Storm
by Mumzy12 on 2018/09/27 03:55
During Hurricane Florence, even though we had evacuated northwest to the NC mountains, I had marked the location of our house in Wilmington, NC, with a yellow star. We were able to monitor what was happening to our home, during the entire storm. We took pictures of the eye wall hitting our home and watched, on radar, tornadoes tearing through our neighborhood. It really helped us to understand why and how what trees fell. I texted the pictures to myself to show the insurance adjuster, just in case I needed any evidence. I highly recommend this app, as well as hurricane shutters. We had heavy yard debris along with many trees down. Limbs had obviously been deflected by our shutters, which also helped to keep our roof from blowing off. We found our house to be dry and in great shape, minus a few shingles.
Back to great
by CWThomas on 2019/05/02 13:17
Update: app is functioning as normal now with only a 5 minute lapse between image and real time. Received a developer reply to my original concern which goes a long way and frankly is not the norm among most developers. Developer suspected a temporary problem although that problem it could not have happened at a core critical time while bracing for a severe thunderstorm. Hoping this is a temporary problem, but the radar loop ends 50 minutes and counting in the past. Have been accustomed to it being up to 10 minutes old, but in the interest of seeing “current” radar in the midst of a Severe Thunderstorm Watch, a 50+ lapse renders the information essentially worthless. Will have already experienced the passing off a strong storm before the loop catches up. Disappointing!
Excellent App With A few Glitches
by pappasbike on 2019/03/04 02:26
I’ve purchased the subscription version and am overall pleased with it. But one issue vexes me. With HD radar selected I’m unable to see the actual precipitation coverage for my location. I see what looks to be cloud cover but the actual colored precipitation layer is always at the bottom edge of this cloud cover making it look as if there is only a layer of clouds over my location and no precipitation when its raining and snowing here. Selecting the classic view presents the radar view I’m used to with coverage over the entire map including my location. Perhaps this is due to my unfamiliarity with the app but I’ve found no way to remedy this so I leave it set for Classic view. If I’m doing something wrong and can find out how to correct this or understand better what I’m looking at I’ll give this 5 stars.
Great Weather App!
by Ugi.T on 2020/06/10 03:24
This weather app is among the greatest out there! There are so many good perks. It notifies you when storms are approaching, and it also lets you know ahead of time too. This app also has a real-time radar system where you can look to see where other weather is at is nearby cities or even across the world. A new feature allows you to track the ISS (International Space Station). It’s something I was looking forward to seeing. If I may, I would like to request an additional feature. If you could add a news section on the app. Please make this news straight forward and unbias. Although this is a weather app. I believe that this app could get so much more support with news. Hopefully this could be added. Thanks for making this great app!
Best Weather App on Appstore.
by KCdrmr on 2019/09/08 20:25
Living in Florida, bad Weather is almost a daily occurrence during the Summer. I've downloaded and tried just about every weather app and always end up using MyRadar. It has the best Radar images, I actually picked out possible tornados just seconds before recieving Tornado warning. Purchased Full version to track Dorian, and from info I had from App, I knew the storm would turn up and follow coast, due to frontal system, As weather Channel continued to report on " Catastrophic Storm" that will make landfall around Melbourne. I know they don't want People to let their guard down but seriously? Anywhoo, Awesome App, totally worth the $10 yr. And track storm through MyRadar, and maybe Weatherbug. Avoid Jim Cantore's Sign shaking antics on Weather Channel.
Really great app, but a couple suggestions
by rykj2 on 2019/09/01 17:52
What a great app! MyRadar is noticeably more detailed than many other weather and radar apps that I’ve come across. It’s super helpful in not only tracking weather systems, but also understanding why forecasts are the way they are. A couple suggestions for improvement I have would be: 1) allow for seeing more than one hurricane path at a time for premium subscribers (for example, users should be able to track current hurricanes AND prior hurricanes); 2) users should be able to search for prior hurricane any name instead of having to scroll though a long list of storms by year; 3) update the iOS app design for iPhone X/Xr/Xs screen orientations (right now the app design doesn’t seem optimized for no home button and a camera notch. Otherwise, thanks for the app and great job!
Great app
by ♥xxshelbyxx♥ on 2019/08/05 03:43
I have a few issues though. For the past couple of weeks, every time I open the app it crashes. It works fine if I open it a second time. It gets a bit annoying to need to open in twice every time I want to check the radar. Second issue started a few days ago. I got an alert about the hurricane/tropical storm. Thought it was weird since that's not anywhere close to my area and just assumed it was a one time glitch… except it wasn't. I finally found out how to turn off that notification only for it to pop up again. I turned it off again thinking it didn't save my settings only for it to go off again. I even completely turned off all notifications just to get the alert again. Please fix this. I know I'm not the only person getting it.
Solid app but one thing bothers me a bit.
by MandarinChicken on 2018/02/16 14:00
This app works well and is easy and quick which is great. Much faster than the stop iPhone weather app for accessing the radar. The one issue I have is that once you set a star on your map, the only way to see what the weather is and what is coming is to have it in the center of your screen. All the weather that is coming (generally) comes from the west, so I always have the screen screwed with my home to the far right of the screen to see what is coming, negating the ability to see the actual forecast for my home. There is no need to see so much past my star to the right. The aiming sight should be skewed to the right at least 3/4 the width of the screen if not more so you can keep your star(s) on it and see what is coming. Just an opinion.
Good replacement for Storm Radar
by Son of FE on 2020/01/17 21:31
After The Weather Channel consumed Weather Underground and utterly destroyed the amazing Storm app, it was replaced by Storm Radar. The replacement was/is a disaster. My Radar is a worthy replacement for the old Storm, although I wish it could access the network of amateur weather stations from around the world so that we could have finer granularity with things like precipitation and temperature data. Other than that, the only other really cool new feature would be to add Apple CarPlay functionality so we could monitor storms relative to our driving location while on the road. This one is definitely worth the free download, and maybe even a subscription. One BIG improvement would be to add Apple CarPlay to its functionality. That would be wonderful when on the road!
Excellent weather app!
by Robert Dubya on 2018/09/04 12:19
Having tried a number of unsatisfactory weather apps, I was glad to have found MyRadar. It is an excellent app that gives me all of the weather information that I need in an attractive and easy to use format. For the person who said his in-app purchases didn’t show up on his other devices, try going to MyRadar’s settings on your other devices and “Restore previous purchases.” I had the same complaint until I discovered this procedure. Since I live in northeast Florida, I will purchase the $2.99 Hurricane Tracker before the next hurricane season rolls around. 4 September 2018 update. I really like the new search feature included in the most recent update that allows the easy addition of other locations.
Overall a nice app
by ...Jason... on 2018/09/05 10:27
Well if I were to judge this as a weather app alone it wouldn’t get very far, but as a radar it works better than expected, exceeding most I’ve tried. I would remove the photo future unless you can get it working properly because it rarely if ever uploads my photos to the map or even to the tab “my photos”. I love the wind directional graphics/jet stream on the screen, that really helps you get a good eye on the general direction of a storm unlike the “false forecasts” most other apps rely on. As one other user mentioned, the forest fire information is an A+ as it does provide a great benefit, sure fires change quickly but I was able to monitor a fire in Southern Oregon close to my parents from Georgia which eased my mind a bit during an uncertain time. Keep up the good work!!
