Many of us have a keen interest in what the weather is going to be like in our area. After all, it affects us all in our day to day activities in some way. While there are many apps that will tell us a simplistic weather report, NOAA Hi-Def Radar takes a more scientific approach.
The app makes it possible to view real-time animated weather radar images across an interactive map. Users can adjust the loop speed and the interval between individual frames, giving them plenty of control over what they see.
Other features include the ability to see the weather forecast, severe weather warnings, clickable storm direction arrows, snowfall and hurricane forecast tracks, all in one place.
Using NOAA satellites ensures that NOAA Hi-Def Radar is an ideal way of tracking any upcoming hurricanes or storms, covering the Atlantic and Pacific oceans.
NOAA Hi-Def Radar currently only works in the US and can struggle in high-altitude places and parts of Alaska, but for everyone else, it should prove very interesting.
NOAA Hi-Def Radar is out now, priced at $1.99.
WeatherBug, by Earth Networks, has been updated to 2.0. The 2.0 version of WeatherBug has been completely redesigned with a new user interface and added some new features.
WeatherBug can now automatically update the user’s weather information based on current location data. WeatherBug finds the closest weather station to the iPhone’s current location and uses that to update the weather. The app now receives severe weather warnings and alerts from both the National Weather Service and the exclusive WeatherBug Network.
Other important features include the ability to put a pin on a map and see the current weather conditions, at-a-glance visual forecast displays, and live camera shots from the WeatherBug Network.
While WeatherBug is free (separate apps available for iPhone and iPad), WeatherBug also has an elite version at $0.99 that includes all free features in addition to removing ads and adding additional weather map layers. Check out the video below for an overview of features for WeatherBug.
