Love the Hurricane Tracker App and used it a great deal during the recent visit of Hurricane Irma. Hurricane Tracker has a wealth of information that will delight the weather enthusiast and anyone who wants all the necessary information to monitor one of nature's fiercest beasts. I have sampled many hurricane tracker apps and it is clearly the best I have found. Because of that, I was surprised to find that the app does not provide a high-resolution map (for example, Google Maps) with the most probable storm track superimposed over it. Almost all the maps are provided by the NHC. They are quite low-resolution. I understand that hurricane tracks are part science (a big part) and part magic. So, for example, a high-resolution map, with a thin, high-resolution line predicting that Hurricane Irma will go just to the east of Key West would have to be taken with a grain of salt. But, I still would REALLY like to have such a map included in Hurricane Tracker! Right now, any attempt to zoom in on any map to gather a more detailed view just produces pixelated ambiguity. It's frustrating and because of that I have to use other hurricane tracker apps in addition to this product. I applaud Hurricane Tracker in many ways and have bought the iPhone and iPad versions. Hopefully, we'll get a high-resolution map feature in a future update.
Loved this app & it was so very helpful last year during hurricane season (I live in Florida). TS Arthur is now out there so checked the app for the first time this season. They have taken away the ability to save images/gifs which I do all the time & used to be able to do. The saddest part about the whole thing is the images are not even theirs to protect as they belong to the National Hurricane Center (NHC). I can go right now to the NHC website & save the exact same images from there as they permit saving. I just liked using the app. I upgraded my iPhone from an 8 to an iPhone 11 Pro shortly after it came out & it seems maybe that’s when things changed & the ability to save images was removed. I wanted to send an email to the App owner/developer to let them know as maybe this was inadvertent (& maybe it has something to do with the new iPhone) but there’s no way to contact them (other than twitter which I don’t know how to do) so my only option is to leave this review. PLEASE FIX THE ABILITY TO SAVE IMAGES If that is done, I will immediately come back & update this review. Until then I will no longer be using this app and will be getting my TS/hurricane information from the NHC which of course is FREE!!
I live on the Alabama Gulf Coast, and as you would expect, factual, timely weather information is critical. I trust this Application enough that I base my “Storm Related” decisions largely upon the information I find here. Hurricane Tracker is a useful tool for causal, amateur & profession observers. You’ll find more data than you may need, but the design of the App allows you to access the level of information you desire quickly. The only change I might suggest: Maps allow you to focus in on your view, but sometimes being able to expand out the view would, for example, help tie the “Track” you see to the larger picture. This is particularly important when the event is located far out in the Atlantic. A little effort on my part can compensate for this, so this proposed change is not vital for the User.
I have had the app for about 2 years now, and I’m glad I do. It has been reliable and accurate, which is more than I can say for some weather apps. It has several visual tracking methods—spaghetti, millibars, radar, etc—so you have a good selection to monitor, even if you’re not a weather geek. It also tracks storms in the Atlantic *and* the Pacific. It is always up-to-date on NOAA data and alerts as well. One new feature that tickled me—when it sends a text alert it now includes a whooshing wind sound, which definitely differentiates it from any other alert. Kudos to the developers for accuracy, dependability and a clear, easy-to-use interface. Highly recommended. Now I’m going to check on Dorian again.
The app has a lot of good data however I think it could use some improvements. Here are some suggestions from a life long Florida resident. Add the category of the storm to the hurricane icon. For example: where you list the storms, show the number. This is my biggest issue with the app. Especially as storms approach land, they can upgrade or downgrade at a moments notice. I want to be able to check in the wee hours of the night and right away see what category the storm is. It’s really hard to find that info in this app. You have to either read a big document and try and weed through all the meteorology jargon to find it. Add a tracking graph that the user can move a stark back in time or forward in time based on the most projected path. Kittycode’s hurricane tracker app had this and I loved it. It even changed the category label as the storm was expected to downgrade as it moved over land. Download kittycode hurricane tracker and look at some historical storms. You’ll be able to see how this feature works. Unfortunately the kittycode app retired after last season and I found this app instead. Overall, it’s still a very good app and has a ton of info. The spaghetti models section is actually better than the other app, but some user experience misses make it less than 5 stars for me.
