Description:

Display National Weather Service WSR 88D Radar on your desktop.
Pick from any one of the NWS radars in the 50 United States, Puerto Rico, and Guam.

* Display Reflectivity, Velocity, or Precipitation amounts.
* Loop up to 20 images.
* Step through each of the images with a mouse click.
* Auto update to have the screen refresh itself.
* Sort the list of radar sites by state, name, or your usage of the radar.
* You control what to overlay on the radar (cities, county/state boundaries, highways, base map).

This is just a very simple stand alone app to show the radar image of your choice on the desktop. This data is available from the NWS on their web sites and you can view the same data in a web browser. This app lets you have a smaller footprint to keep a loop running off to the side of your desktop.

I'm fine - I read several of the reviews and did not get why all the negativity? I like the app and the radar footprint. It does the job, and has straightforward controls. It works for me and I have several weather apps and radar apps on my iMac as well as my iPhone5 and the app is good. I wouldn't say it's NORAD quality radar but it's fine in my book.

Don't Buy - This was a waste of money. You can not zoom in on the RADAR site. You get better RADAR shots on the actual National Weather Service site. I clicked on the PinPointRadar Support link and it opened my facebook page…. with no support.

No Radar Saves - It's an OK app. I do agree with what others are saying bout this. True there is no zoom, nothing of that sort. No controls. Only select what you want to display, play loop, and radar selection. I hate having to select my radar, everytime i launch this app. Save your money. You be glad you did.

Needs to have ability to enlarge - This would be an OK app if you had some controls to enlarge or even go full screen.
