If for any reason you are not satisfied with this application within 5 days of purchase, please email us at with your name, and date of purchase and we will issue a full refund to you. All we ask in return is to let us know what features you would like to see in this program in order for you to repurchase the application.

NOTE FROM DEVELOPER: Due to the NWS servers downtime, we have switched data providers on the BASE Radar images. If you are having issues seeing any radar data, go into settings, and switch from High Res to Base, scroll down and click SAVE. If anyone would like a refund due to the outages, please email with your name, and date of purchase and we will honor your request regardless of when it was purchased. THANK YOU!

    CANNOT get the widget to work over cellular connection. Always get error downloading. Works great over WiFi but does me no good when I need it most. Please, please look into this. Did as you asked. That isn't the issue.

    would be 5 stars but you can't edit, add or delete locations for a forecast once the app has been moved to an sd card. fix that and it is 5 stars.

    What happened to the great refund policy... This app wont update and each time I have sent an email to the address specified, it bounces back.... What's the deal?

    This is the best radar app around. Love it. Simple and elegant presentation. I particularly like the fact that the data is presented as a composite - you don't have to choose a radar station to view. It would be great even at 3 or 4 times the price! (Wish it was available on iOS, too!)

    Only problem is that radar data apparently isn't available when the government is shut down....

    In the four years that I've had an android, this is the first app I've paid for. This is the best radar widget out of the very few that exist. My only suggestions are to add a start loop button to the widget and a forecast widget. Nice work! Response.... Tennessee Radar has loop in widget.... still like yours though :)
