    "My phone's battery never ever stays charged with the weather app that I had been using. Anytime I had it on, it sucked the life out of the phone and in a few hours I had to recharge it again! I went on a hunt for a new app for iOS and found Weather Line. It's got a sleek look and it doesn't drain my battery! I switched to that since it was a way better option for me!"

    "The linked app is on Google Play. Google Play! There are no iOS apps on Google Play. Your suggestion is bad and you should feel bad. Had you suggested the App Store version, then things would be different. But you didn't. The App Store version is worth getting for iOS, but the Google Play version most certainly is not."

    "The concept of this weather application is great. It wants to keep you up to date on the immediate weather where you are or where you care about. As all applications, it seems to have some bugs that make it not as great as it seems on paper. I don't like that it needs to access my location all the time - that isn't needed for proper functionality. Often times the map also won't work properly which is endlessly frustrating when you need LIVE weather. "

    "We joke around that my husband should be a meteorologist because he loves weather so much. Since we watch the weather channel so much I have developed a real love of the weather too. I have used many weather apps and this app makes me feel like it was made for true weather addicts. It's not your typical weather app in that they use true weather mosaics just like on tv. Tracking a storm like hurricane Harvey or Irma was pretty amazing on this app. "

    "Hurricane Tracker is very overpriced for what it does. You can get many of these features for the weather on other apps that are free on the App store. The sad part is that the weather it shows is inaccurate 20% of the time so you have to keep double checking. This app is far from the best out there."

    "This app does exactly what it says. It is a great weather app that displays your up to daye weather radar without going through the hassle of sifting through other weather-related information. You can also buy hurricane tracker for it which makes it very helpful for those people that live in coastal regions. Just be wary that if you buy anything on this app it only applies to the device you buy it on. You have to buy it separately for each different device."

    "This is a definite must have if you live in a city affected by weather extremes. I would reccomend this as I have it on my phone as I do long haul driving. That way you can be sure to stay out of the areas that will be hit by storms. This lets you stay out of traffic days before as people are evacuating. "
