When it comes to weather apps, there are literally thousands of options available right now. However, Storm brings something different to the table. It has high definition radar along with advanced storm cell tracking. So you can find out when that storm will hit your neighborhood, and hopefully get home and out of the car before it hits your area. Storm also provides real-time severe weather alerts. And it's currently the only weather app to do so.
As with any other weather app, you can also view the current conditions in your area as well as in other cities across the world. Storm does also give you daily and hourly forecasts as well. So you can go into more detail as to when the weather will turn bad. The interactive map tracks storms and utilizes the most advanced severe weather algorithms to give users a detailed analysis of the impending storm. The app also includes a tropical tracks map overlay. You can view lightning 100 miles around your location. However, this is limited to just the continental US (not Hawaii and Alaska). The full screen map is customizable with different data layers. These layers include severe weather alerts, earthquakes and more.
Now you may not want to always open up the app to get the latest weather and that's where the widgets come in handy. There are plenty of widgets available, which will feature real-time alerts for sever weather as well as showing you the current conditions in your area. You can easily tap on the current conditions, daily or hourly forecasts to view more detailed weather data from within the app. You can also share storm tracking and radar data with your friends and family using the built-in sharing feature. So you can share this via Facebook, Twitter, email and even text messages.
This app is a free download, and there is a single in-app purchase. This in-app purchase will get rid of ads for you, at just $1.99. However, that is only good for a year. So that'll cost you $1.99 per year to get rid of ads and support the developer.
