    Great app, but doesn't include the European model in add-on.

    Fantastic app! Really well done! Purchase the inexpensive add-on with the forecast models and make this awesome app even better! Keep up the great work.

    Would like it a lot if it worked. It keeps saying unable to download. Please help. Thanks

    I live in an area where hurricanes have been a way of life. I have been through 4 major storms and numerous smaller ones. I also purchased the ad on that gives you access to the forcast models. Both are well worth the price.

    Pros outnumber the cons by a large margin. Pros: Easy to use, groups all the data in one place so I don't have to waste time blundering around on the NHC website, add on computer model forecasts. Cons: Just one and it's the only reason this doesn't get 5 stars. Downloads seem to lag on my HTC DNA despite 4GLTE.
