    "Unfortunately, the solution says that the content in not yet available in my country (the USA). This would not be a good place for people to find WU Storm, because no information is provided for them on determining whether or not WU Storm is one of the best weather radar apps for the Android. "

    "I downloaded the free version during the crazy hurricane weeks we had a while ago. I was totally in hurricane mode and trying to get as much info as possible. Enjoyed the app because it's simple to use and the interface is nice and clean looking. But it won't beat going to NOAA's website for sure. There were surprising holes in the coverage - some obvious zones were missing, which made me doubt the seriousness of the app. Maybe they're just starting and will add more zones as they go. I'm willing to give them the benefit of doubt for the time being but I'll wait before getting the paid version."

    "I've tried a few different weather apps and this one is, by far, my favorite. The interface is aesthetically pleasing and rather intuitive. It's simple and easy to use and in that sense a real "keeper". On the downside, it didn't update automatically (as far as I could tell) and a little tricky to use in that sense. Still, it's the best one available and one I will definitely continue to use."

    "Hurricane Tracker is an app available on the google play store. It is a very timely introduction considering we are right after Harvey and with Irma bearing down on Florida right now. It gives everything you need to keep track of tropical storms. It may not be as good at general weather as some of the more popular weather apps, but it does excel at the tropical storms. It does fit the topic."

    "Weather radar gives you real time radar from satellite imaging for the weather where you currently are. The best part of the app is that you can set layers to show you wind direction so you can make your own predictions, watching storms form and move across the world. BEST app for radar"
