    Been using this for 3 years now and absolutely love this app! It is jam packed with features and settings. Plus I recently had an issue with the recent update and the dev was willing to contact google and go above and beyond. I will be a lifetime user for sure. Would give this more than 5 stars if I could!

    Very robust radar app. Best feature is surface ob mapping with long press for full METAR. Zoom out goes from individual radar to mosaic. If not for lack of radar color curve customization, perfect radar app! Highly recommended to anyone by this NWS met!
