Radar Live - I have had Radar Live for over two years and like it the more I use it. Nobody is going to believe that it is the only app I have ever purchased … in two plus years. And I have a lot of apps on three new and old Macs. They all work well. The app is flexible and lets me quickly find stuff that I hear about on the news .. most recently tracking Florence as I have friends living in the Carolinas. I look forward to finding new ideas from the author in the update I just received although I am totally content with the version I have been using. Thanks..

Can I get my money back please? - I can’t think of too much nice to say about this program. First off, you’re presented with a split screen with the US on one side and your local radar on the other. Well, that’s great if that’s what you want…but all I care about is my local radar. Like other programs out there, this app should give you the option for 1 window only so if you want to devote a whole screen to your local radar you can…then zoom out if you want to see more like the whole U.S. or zoom into another area. Inexplicably, that’s not an option here, you just get the 2 screens. You are left with woefully inadequate customization options. The weather forcast takes up a quarter of the screen and you can’t get rid of it. I just want to see the radar! And the resolution is horrible. I just wish I could get my money back. Unfortunately there are not a lot of options out there in the Mac world. On the PC side there’s a great little program called MyRadar but unfortunately that’s not available here.

Weather Now! - This has been an excellant app. I use it every day. While there are many weather forecasting apps (not to mention weather reports on the local news programs)...which vary greatly in their forecasting accuracy. This app give a quick local & national view of what the weather looks like at that moment in time. I feel I can better understand the forecasts once I have the big picture view this program provides.

48 United States ONLY! - Like many of Voros' other apps, Radar Live: NOAA doppler radar is a good solid weather application. It has lots of detailed information, a good forecast presentation and adequate radar maps. If you want to follow the weather for the continental United States, the Gulf of Mexico and the right and left coasts, this is your app and well worth the price. If however you are looking for a weather radar app that will show you any other part of the world, this is NOT the app for you. The description says it quite plainly, for the United States 48 states only. Though I wish it had been a little larger and more in your face. For me, $8.00 misspent. Still looking for a good world wide weather radar application. Perhaps Voros will author it. If so, it will no doubt be a good one.

Huntsville AL Radar NO longer works...Huntsville NOW WORKS without FAIL - Update: I have been using now for almost a year. The app has improved to almost perfection... worth buying. Works very well... not perfect but great. I use on a mac mini connected to a 60 inch sony hidef tv... and love to open and watch the storm move in.. would be nice if there was some way to measure the speed a storm is moving and display... how soon will the storm arrive... highly recommend... UPDATE: I Changed my rating from 1 star to 5 stars. The improvements are EXCELLENT and this app is one of my most used apps.. the huntsville radar now works as well as any other. UPDATE: the area inside the circle represents a hundred mile radius... or so... and seems to NEVER work... this is the left side of the visual... the right side works OK for the most part... the developers apparently can't solve the problem... as it persist... UPDATE: GREAT IDEA. POORLY IMPLEMENTED. fails far too often to be useful. One star only now... knowing what I know now... I would not have bought... Apple should give me a refund... UPDATE: Huntsville Al radar not working again... removing 2 stars until you can fix. Great APP I use almost every day... I have an old imac that I use... there are additions I think would be good... Huntsville AL. radar no longer works and is the best site for me... hope you can fix... Pick from Map don't work half the time...

Review by RJM77

Waste of Money - STOP! DO NOT BUY. App displays a totally flat user interface. App show 4 to 5 still displays of weather data and a small radar map in the left bottom corner. Not interavtive at all. You cannot change selections for radar type, 5 hour forecasts, wind gusts, lightening detection, and no map for projected wind patterns and timelines. This is a total flat display with BASIC local weather data. You cannot get the real interactive NOAA data on this app. Don't waste the money. Better to simply bookmark the NOAA website for your area and use that. This app is just a big money grap for the developer. DO NOT BUY THIS APP download Windy, Windfinder, and Storm Radar for iPhone. They are FREE and 100% better than is app with basic data.
