Pros and cons of NOAA Hi-Def Radar Pro app for iPhone and iPad

NOAA Hi-Def Radar Pro app good for

I did this to make this seen it is terrible unless you want to see the
I am trying to add a 4th Pin Drop location and the App will not allow it. I am selecting an address from my Address Book and have typed in the address. The App will not add the address.
The only bad thing is weak notification sounds. Not much to get your attention. Works fine on my IOS
You can see the swirl of tornados on the radar and it pins your location. I track the path of tornadoes near me to see if I need to take shelter or not. Excellent app. I chose this one over any other radar app.
This app has a lot of features, but I only use it for viewing the radar, and viewing the satellite (clouds). Its much better than the usual forecast apps for viewing these. Great aesthetic design, decent source radar/sat material, updated so you can frequently see images 5min old or more recent.
I LOVE this app! Very accurate, very easy to understand with incredible detail. Ive been touring the US constantly, and this app has been essential to my route plan each day, and I credit it for keeping me aware & safe under spontaneous inclement weather conditions. The camera part of the app is a delightful bonus, either to brag about experiencing perfect weather, or for solid proof of nasty weather endured. Severe weather warnings are ornately detailed, providing the necessary information to properly plan the next course of action. I *rarely* write reviews, but I highly recommend this app to anyone generally interested in weather, travelers, or those that like to stay a step ahead alike. Enjoy.

Some bad moments

Basically, pass on this app. Given the title of the app describes it as having"hi def" radar, it is extremely disappointing. Download any of the other apps under a search for "radar" on the app store and they will be far superior to this one with regard to radar resolution.
The radar is the reason this app doesnt get 1 star. It falls short in every other aspect as a weather app. The five-day forecast is never right as well as the hourly forecast. The iPhones stock weather app is more accurate than this. Dont waste your money.
This used to be my go to app for weather and now it doesnt function properly most of the time and its become inaccurate when it does work. Ive found the regular iOS weather app to be more reliable. What a joke.
Havent seen an update in well over a year and support doesnt reply to emails. My collection of paid purchase orphan apps keeps getting larger and larger. Anyone purchasing this app needs to know its shelf life is limited do to lack of updates and support. I wish Apple would place some form of required support from app developers to maintain a position within the App Store, i.e. no active support no listing in the App Store.
Free apps offer more up-to-date and more accurate information.
Seeing past radar is not worth it. Was hoping for future and even past had bugs and showed nothing after a monstrous storm. Save your $
