StormEye provides detailed storm tracking information and weather radar images overlayed on Google Maps. For each storm, StormEye provides important information such as the storm's location relative to your location, where the storm is heading, estimated time of arrival (ETA), the storm's intensity, hail probabilities, and maximum hail size.

Review StormEye's internal help guide, via the menu, for help with common issues and descriptions of StormEye's features.

StormEye functions by downloading data from the National Weather Service for the selected WSR-88D weather radar. The radar closest to your current location is automatically chosen; however, you can quickly switch to any of the 156 NWS WSR-88D radars across the United States. The downloaded data is then used to construct a weather radar with markers and tracks for every detected storm.

    This is one of the best, if not the best, weather apps. It's simple, yet gives what's most needed -- radar and storm warnings. My only wish is for the radar to loop. That would make it 5+ stars! Good job!
