Great Weather! - Had been looking for a weather app, found this one. Is this connected to NOAA? I have an iPhone app which is - and that’s what it is called. Back to this app. Very welle done. A little different than another I was using which was in the menu bar. But this one is in my dock, can click on it and what a treasure trove of info. Still a newbie (FNG) and not sure if I can add other locations to it (family on the east coast; which MenuWeather allowed); I will see if this does that too. Like the radar maps, the detailed forecasts, and quality graphics (excellent on a MBPro Retina!). What else can I say? This app is definately worth a download. Need to explore its features - usual excuse, too busy at the moment. Tom

This app loads “hidden”! NEEDS TO BE FIXED - So I purchased app for use on my new Retina iMac. Clicked on the app, it loads, at least the words do in the task bar but the window does not load. After taking a few minutes to figure out that in preferences under the general tab the box marked “auto hide blah blah blah” is checked as a default. Unchecked box, quit app, launched again (several times) restart NOT ONCE DID THE WINDOW LOAD AND STILL HAS NOT! I reached out to the app developer and this person was fairly quick to respond telling me to uncheck the box. Which I’d already completed. Gee thanks. I have no idea if this app works as described and from what I’ve seen in the other reviews some have had this problem, others not. But on a brand spanking new ( 2 days ) Retina iMac? Come on!! So, if I could I’d give no stars and if it ever works I’ll update this review. I’m going to send one more email and then just chalk this experince as having to pay the stupid tax again. Trust me this complaint is not about the money spent it’s about the desription and being lulled into purchasing something that does not work. (at least for me, oh wait some others too) Sir or Mam, please update your software so it loads/launches the same way as all of the thousands of other apps do!

Radar Live Pro - Great - A Galaxy of stars is my rating. My 2011 MacBook runs the program like a tiger. Very responsive to a click and the many many locations availiable for a click are incredible. My three kids are in Finland, Hawaii and Missouri and I am in Calif. I can be in all four locations in about 15 seconds for a quick glance. Having both a local and national map (which goes international except for the radar) on one screen with the five day forecast makes it even better considering you have a choice of screen formats in preferences. This happens to be the first App I have ever purchased. I have a lot of free ones but really glad I got careless and purchased this one. The author knows what it takes to have a happy buyer and his App worth a reasonable price.

Review by Hilltop415

Rip off - What a rip. Ridiculously simple app in an unsizable window that doesn’t come even close to filling my iMac screen. I bought it so I could view large detailed weather maps. You can get way more info and better maps from any weather site on the internet for free. Can’t believe this thing cost $10.

Review by ammolifer

Radar Live - I see very little difference between this version, which I paid good money for, and the original Weather Dock; except for the interactive weather maps. However, the map addition is so porely done and unless you’re looking over larger square mileage, for instance the entire NE, the weather patterns look squarish/amateurish. I would uninstall if not for the fact that I paid for it. The only reason I give it a ‘3’ is because one does get what appears to be a better than fair weather outlook and a person is able to see what the weather is doing now or has been doing over the last so many hours.

Review by Rob 46

Radar review - When faced with a major storm such as the recent one, HERMINE, having this program really removes the concern of the unknown and standing at the TV and waiting for the TV experts to give an update. A fast look and you are able to react as necessary. Even a less powerful local thunderstorm can be watched and followed if needed. The radar picture and the weather forecast are truly helpful. Our thanks and our appreciation.

Fun, Accurate and very Useful - Opens rapidly with one click to current conditions. Very accurate and timely radar images. The screen says to input US locations but it does accept Canadian without problems. Great deal for very little cost as the 7-day forecasts are superb.
