Only problem I have with the app is the radar. It just doesn't resize or refresh worth a damn. Of course - during storms like last night - that's a pretty big deal.
What do people use for Weather apps. That radar thing has really turned me off Weather channel. Yahoo's weather radar is even worse.
Been trying out weathercaster the last few days. Not too bad, but alot of sub-panels on the iphone app. And somewhat slow loading. Not sure if there's a paid, no-ad version. Are severe weather alerts
I was flipping between 8 and 13.
8 seemed to do a better job of zooming in and focusing more on potential tornado's. Then all off a sudden right before the tornado warnings in Johnston start sounding 8 decides it's a good time to do some regular news. WTF
13 did a good job and I like their app better. They also seem to dumb it down for the 95% of the world (including me) that don't get impressed when you start rattling off a bunch of meteorologic terms/conditions.
5 They are just getting word that a storm is moving in from Nebraska last night.
I've lived in DSM or 20 years now. +5 up at ISU. And WOI has been horrible that whole time. How can that be? 3rd always, maybe 4th behind IPTV half the time. Now with KDSM and a few others, they may be falling farther.
It's like a news version of Wayne's World. Has the feel like I could go out to my garage and find 5 people putting on a news broadcast.
You'd think at some point they'd find an infusion of cash and up the game a bit.
RadarScope is hands down the best radar app. It is $10 but totally worth it especially if you know what you are doing.
Raindar is what I use and like. Simplistic and fast and free!
I have Mediacom cable and they were pushing NWS alerts, which I had never seen before. Even when we were watching stuff On Demand.
The part that really chapped my hide was I was trying to watch Channel 13's detailed coverage, but Mediacom would interrupt with their robo-voice and blank screen. Seemed really stupid to me :realmad:
