Updates your location, speed, and direction to SpotterNetwork just like the windows client. Set update times from 2 minutes to longer with the onscreen slider. Also use the Celltower triangulation instead of GPS to save on battery power.

Be sure to also get Rapid Report for Storm Chasers. The first app to provide a simple mobile interface to the new SpotterNetwork reports API. Chaser Location is the official Android client app for SpotterNetwork.

    Hi Guys: Paid and downloaded this app for my Galaxy s4 with the latest operating system. After installing, the first screen came up and ask for my ID. I put my ID into the system and then about 5 second later, it goes to a blank screen. Phone is locked up

    EDIT: The developer responded quickly to my previous comment and helped me get the app going on my phone. Looking forward to using it on my next chase. :-)

    I used this to chase a small storm featuring a wall cloud that tracked across Wichita, KS today. Excellent features that will be a blast to explore! Thanks!
