Positive review Fixed for GS4! YAY! by anonym
Best radar app out there! Thanks to the Galaxy S4 fix, I can now uninstall those "other" apps. 5/5
Positive review Refresh Button Please by anonym
This is a decent app. One complain i have is that it needs a refresh button. I have to zoom in or out of the map to refresh the radar. Other than that, it does it job fairly well. Wish the app would get updated more often. 4/5
Positive review Does One Thing, and Does It Perfectly by anonym
This is the exact type of animated radar I was looking for. Has some nice options, extremely easy to use, always works, and looks great. Anyone giving this less than 5 stars needs to rethink their criteria, especially when the app does exactly what it says it will, and is free AND has no ads! 5/5
Positive review best app for driving through summer storms by anonym
moving map radar with traffic! excellent mash up. Now, let's do one with nautical charts and put XM weather out of business.... 5/5
Negative review by anonym
Fixed! Backed to being easily my number 1 radar app. Incompatible S4. Works great s2 This is by far my favorite radar app. Yesterday I got a new phone, a Samsung S4, will not work with this phone! I think the screen resolution is messing it up. I really need this fixed quickly. And because I Spent so much money on it I feel justified in my demands. It's only a 1 on the S4 all other phones its a 5 easy. 1/5
Positive review Best radar app by far! by anonym
Very accurate. Great graphics! Impressive 5/5
Positive review Raindar! by anonym
I wanted to thank you for developing such a fantastic app, Raindar is awesome! If possible in the next release; a button to pause the animation a the most recent frame and also a menu item to refresh the map would be greatly appreciated. It's difficult to view the characteristics of a current storm when the radar is moving and sometimes the image becomes outdated frequently and must be restarted to load the new one. Feel free to consider a donate app as well, I'd gladly toss a few bucks your way. 4/5
Positive review Fantastic by anonym
Only complaint is the lack of refresh...and a little slow at times. But it is free and better than anything else. 5/5
Positive review Good, w/one glitch by anonym
Good radar app, but satellite view is glitchy on my Asus Transformer Infinity TF700. 4/5
Negative review Had to uninstall due to freeze up by anonym
I used to like this app til the last update. If reinstalling doesn't fix it, I'll move on to another radar app. 2/5
Positive review Raindar is awesome! by anonym
As a fisherman and owner of a lawncare business, its important to know the location of storms/rain. This app makes me money as I can mow until the rain is nearly upon me! 5/5
Positive review Great way to see what is coming by anonym
Simple and effective. It is a little slow when loading radar but at the end works great. No stupid offerings or pop ups. 4/5
Positive review One of my favorite apps! by anonym
Just a fantastic little tool for severe weather enthusiasts like me. Highly recommend! :) 5/5
Positive review Excellent for what it is. by anonym
I am a Meteorologist by profession. This app is the simplest, cleanest, no frills radar app that I have been able to find. No toolbars to clutter the screen, just a plain old radar app. It won't give you high res data or anything like Radarscope or Pykl3 would, but you're also not paying 10 bucks for it ;) It's my go-to when I want a simple, broad look at the radar. 4/5
Positive review BEST WEATHER APP. (PERIOD)!!! by anonym
This weather application is better than any other I've EVER used. It lets you know exactly where rain's going to be right down to the clouds going over your head. Turn on the local radar features and you'll get the altitude of the cloud tops as well as winds high aloft and the chance of producing hail producing storms that may cause damage to your property. Have not seen how it works with Tornado warnings, but I imagine its tops there too, showing important tracks so you can take cover if needed. 5/5
Positive review Great by anonym
Uses google maps. Update: several years later and several phones later this is still one of my most used and favorite apps. This app is the absolute fastest way to know where storms are. 5/5
Positive review Great app by anonym
Best radar app on the market, PERIOD. Wundermap is amazing. Thank you devs, for making such an awesome application. 5/5
Positive review Perfect by anonym
I've waited years for an app to use good radar data on top of the Google Maps API. This does exactly that, and an added bonus: uses the latest Android Holo theming to look great. Also has traffic option - in 3 seconds I can get into my car and load this app to see weather and traffic instantly. Would like to see the dev update to the latest Google Maps API, so one-handed zoom in/out works like in the Google Maps app. But that's not even worth removing a star - this is the perfect radar app for Android. Should be a stock app. 5/5
Positive review Sweet app by anonym
Update: Installed over my last 3 phones, from LG to Samsung and now my HTC ONE ( M7 AND M8). Continued great service and quick response to one minor issue. Consider the paid version if only for supporting great developers. Very fast to load, easy on resources. Wunderground has some of the best data displays going. Raindar is a winner! 5/5
Positive review Fast, useful radar app by anonym
No matter what weather forecast app I use, I always have this app installed alongside it due to the speed at which I can get the radar image. The only downside is the use of old Google Maps APIs, so zooming and panning is a bit clunky. Otherwise, it works and looks great, even on Lollipop! 5/5
Negative review WON'T REFRESH by anonym
Unless it's a hidden feature, the program has no automatic refresh. If you come back in a few hours it's still on the same scan as hours ago. So you have to move around the screen to get program to load new radar. So it's usless for long term monitoring Dirty shame 2/5
Positive review Go To App for BAD Weather!!! by anonym
I've had RAINDAR for both smartphone and tablet for a couple of years. IF you live in ANY kind of bad weather alley, this is the gold standard! When local radars have shown a bad storm, RAINDAR has been right. Scaling In ND OUT KEEPS THE RESOLUTION. i RECENTLY, LIKE THIS WEEK BOUGHT AN IPad.. THIS app is my GOLD standard and none so far have measured up! Living in a rural area, RAINDAR is especially invaluable! It is clearer than anything I've seen, ever! 5/5
Positive review The best! by anonym
Im in tv news. I need fast reliable radar data when tracking storms. This app is hands down the best! 5/5
Positive review Near perfect by anonym
Fast, accuarate, granular, simple. Marks your GPS position instantly. Initial lad of the radar can be a bit slow, and seems to be getting slower. 4/5
Positive review Fast, clean, better than similar apps by anonym
Perfect, very simple, loads fast and shows local radar with one click. Very helpful during recent camping trip. Thank you! Works great on Samsung Galaxy S3, S4, S5 5/5
Positive review One of the best free Radar apps by anonym
Ive had this app on my droid bionic for the last three years and i cant find one complaint. Its simple loads great and pulls its radar data from wunderground. 5/5
Negative review Galaxy Epic by anonym
Love the simplicity, but jus doesn't work on my phone. Worked okay when initially installed in NY state, came home to Mich & after reinstalling twice, it still crashes often (first it thinks I'm in Tulsa (never been there), then moves to my city & shuts down or it crashes when I try to zoom in once I'm in the correct city). 2/5
Positive review A Message from "Dr. D" I'm a disabled veteran in a Power Wheel Chair. This App keeps me from getting hit by lightning especially. Because being in a power wheelchair, is like being a moving Tree. Lightning and power chairs don't mix! by anonym
This application is simply OUTSTANDING!!! 5/5
Positive review Great app by anonym
Very detailed and no annoying pop-up ads for me so far. Very good accurate radars. HTC ONE 5/5
Negative review What happened?' by anonym
What happened to the nice clean crispness of this app?? All you can see now are just pixelated green and yellow blobs. This is my favorite app and I do NOT like whatever it is that's going on now. Please fix it. 2/5
Positive review Great app! by anonym
Best radar application out there. Wonderful job with the zoom and the options are great. 5/5
Positive review Absolutely Perfect by anonym
I have had this app for several years. It is unquestionably the best app of its kind. Reliable and accurate, and an excellent interface. Highly recommended. 5/5
Positive review Radar without the fluff. by anonym
I really love having a quick load radar app. Other apps have tons of clunky extras, links to forecasts, and way too many adds, but this app is slick and works great. The only add on I would suggest is a key for weather types. I live on a fluctuating temperature belt and I can't quite tell if it's slush, ice, freezing rain, or even hail. Otherwise it works great! 4/5
Positive review Best radar app by anonym
Number one radar app. Loads fast and is easy to use. Those that talk about force closes. Most likely is your phone. Clear the app cache. Could solve your problem. Thanks again 5/5
Positive review Superior App by anonym
This app is far more superior then any of your trash local Doppler app. The radar covers the entire nation. Incredible! 5/5
Positive review Great for motorcycling by anonym
Use this ap the most. Helps let me know what type of weather I am heading into. Perfect for getting around thunderstorms etc 5/5
Positive review Definitely recommend by anonym
Don't leave home without type of app. Does exactly what it claims. No bugs and light as a feather on resources. 5/5
Neutral review Used to work great by anonym
The compass feature is gone after this last update. Stopping to look for landmarks to get my bearings and orient the map is a pointless hassle since the compass was close enough even in the midst of fog. Now I have to open a separate compass app or search the horizon and hope I can figure it out. I am using a DROID RAZR maxx. 3/5
Negative review I did love it, but... by anonym
****** Old review... I'm an amateur weather nerd, and this app allows me to track storm cells. You can click on each cell and get even more info. Great free app, keep up the good work. Galaxy nexus ****** update. For a while now it will restart my phone as soon as I tap the icon to load the app. Dunno what that is about but it's not good. Samsung Galaxy Nexus, JB 4.2.1 2/5
Positive review Actually 5-star, but... by anonym
...I really would like to mark a number of locations for fast lookups, not just mine. I've got kids and other family all over the map. Still, this is an essentially perfect app. It does exactly what it promises. (Samsung GS3) 4/5
