    "Tired of the meh weather app on your iPhone? Check out WeatherBug. I like how it gives pollen counts so if you have allergies like me, you know what to expect that day without having to go to a separate site to look up that info. "

    "Apart from being an application, I think this becomes more of a community whjere the members update each other by giving real-time updates of the weather and climate in their neighborhood.  Also, it goes beyond its purpose by monitoring air quality of if there's a flu outbreak or whatever,"

    "Video forecasts from local meteorologist is one of the best features of tihs app. I think it would be best to mention also that it offers detailed local forecasts as it gives you more accurate findings."

    "Talk about convenient! I don't have the time to always be looking this stuff up through other services. The app has truly helped me in my business, which is having to be outdoors a lot. Whenever I have business trips, I know how weather and climate can be so unpredictable but his does the job from tracking the storm to hurricanes, to tornadoes. Whoa, really extreme events!"

    "I previewed this app and found it to be quite extensive. It gives me far more that a simple weather summary. The intricate, detailed data this app provides will be a big help in me planning my day since I do a lot of outside activities. I think this app is a must for outdoorsy folks like me."

    "Wow, what a great radar app for my iPhone. It even works on iPads. I was going on a blind date and luckily this app lets us visualize the 2017 North American eclipse. I had forgotten all about it! Without this app, it may have been a true blind date because we would have both looked directly into the sun."

    "Overall this is a decent little app. I like the concept of tracking Hurricanes and it works well for that purpose. With that said, there are some potential privacy issues that were concerning to me. It asks for permission to a Google app that is thought to be spyware. It would also be nice if there was a list of hurricanes already programmed into it. So, overall, I'm mixed but did find it useful."

    "I was looking for a weather radar app for iOS and was told to check out Hurricane Tracker. It seems cool, especially in light of how hurricanes have become quite mainstream recently, but it didn't seem as diverse of an app that I wanted. Plus, the app seems to be on googles store not the app store. I would recommend trying another app."

    "This app is poorly designed and it is not updated regularly. The source of the weather information is unreliable and often not up to date. It should not be relied upon if the information is vital for your well-being. I also dont like the subscription rules and forfeiture of the trial period"

    "There are so many weather apps, it is hard to figure out which one to use. The Weather Radar had a lot of positive reviews so I decided to try it. This app seems more accurate overall and more useful than the iPhone weather app. The only issue is the radar is not always accurate."
