Better Than Hurricane Tracking Websites

This app puts pretty much all the publically available data about any given cyclone at your fingertips, including a nice view of all the different prediction models (spaghetti models) and what feels like images from every weather satellite in existence. The app seems well-built and is definitely more pleasant to use than all the free hurricane tracking websites out there, which are either filled with ads or less comprehensive. That said, the interface occasionally feels a little rough around the edges. Little things like: - The spaghetti models view should really have a legend - The main tracking view (with the circles) isn't zoomable, and if you naively try to zoom with your mouse wheel you get whisked away to a different tab. - You never quite know what the mouse wheel will do, and linking the mouse wheel to tab selection feels wrong on so many levels. If there's nothing to scroll or zoom, it should simply do nothing. - Thumbnail for spaghetti models shows the wrong storm

Great

You have all the info in one place. No need to go different web pages and try to find an animation that might work. Here they all work. Would love a live tile.

Very useful for easy hurricane monitoring from my Windows phone.

Best tracker for WP that I have found. A little slow to load at times and layout seems a little disjointed but, overall, very useful.

Living in "Hurricane Alley" one needs a good solid easy-to-use app...this is it!

Hurricane Tracker That Doesn't Track

Don't waste your time with this app. There is no way to refresh the screen and it rarely updates on it's own. Will show the same old tracking data for days on end. Erika has been gone for 3 days but this app still shows it churning as a cat1 in the eastern Atlantic. Shows no information on Fred. What's the point of a hurricane tracker if you're not going to track hurricanes?

Still the best

No other hurricane apps are as comprehensive as this one. Could use some modernizing but it gets the job done.

Used to be good but not updated and buggy

Used to love this app but it's outdated and has a few bugs. Contacted the dev and he promised to work on it but it's been a while so it's safe to say he's abandoned it. The app spams you with push notifications and the outlook screen is still stuck on hurricane Arthur.

This update improves mapping, and changes circles on map to cyclone icons. May 27, 2013: Fixes a bug that causes the app to crash upon openning when data failed to load from a certain source.
