One of the best, most versatile and easiest to use radar apps... period!

Since the last update I can't get local radar products to work at all. Don't know if this is a Red Sky issue or the NWS, but the NWS radars load fine on my PC. Otherwise this is one fantastic app!

Seems to work fine, but I'd like to be able to toggle to the standard google map instead of the satellite map. Much better for driving.

Great! Lots of features (so many it can be confusing!) Technical terminology in settings gets tricky. But it is accurate and useful!

Should be clear sky weather. Every time there is a weather.event in my area the radar comes up as 'not found'

Excellent graphics, but very slow to load current conditions, even on wifi. Moto Droid
