Coverage Notes: If you live in a very-high-altitude town in Colorado (e.g. Fraser, Vail, Aspen), most likely this app will not meet your needs since radar beams get blocked by the tall mountains. Alaska coverage includes only the southern coastal areas, and does not include the Aleutian Chain. Also cloud coverage does not include Alaska and Guam.

✓ This app is only useful for users in the US, including all 50 states and territories including Puerto Rico and Guam.

    As a pilot, I have tried other radar apps. Out of all of them I like this one the best. Gives me what I have been looking for in a radar app.
