    "The weather channel app is a semi good solution to track Hurricane Irma. Somebody with little to no knowledge of storm systems or tracking weather systems could use this app with little to no trouble at all. The only issue with the app is the creators are only radar to track storms. For somebody with more experience tracking weather systems knows they have multiple tracking models such as the Euro that track storm systems with more accuracy. "

    "If you are trying to track Hurricane Irma I would recommend just using a search engine and typing in, "Track Hurricane Irma." The MyRadar is an app that limits access to people who have Apple products with iOS operating systems only and this is not the case for everyone. Using the search engine option will work from any phone, tablet, laptop, or pc and allows access to see the radars that have been most recently captured, tracking Hurricane Irma. "

I installed this and it was so busy loading my computer up with pop up notifications that all the hurricane updates I wanted ran as slow as molasses in winter. I can't believe my anti-virus software didn't pick this thing up as malware b/c it should have!"
