For ensuring consistency with the device you should take into account the following app compatibility information: 2.2 and up

Used to be my go to app for fast accurate dependable up to the minute radar data You could see a line of showers approaching as you watched it s progress and direction of travel on the app Would have given it a 5 star rating Bragged about it and recommended it to several friends who had inferior apps Then it updated Since the update it has turned into an unreliable piece of wasted space on my phone Wanted to explain what all is now wrong with it but used up my 500 characters         Steve McCarty
I ve been using this for years and always loved it but it has never been updated Recently it refuses to work properly When this happens the time stamp displays UTC time the time lapse is very quick and it doesn t display any weather systems Even after force stopping and restarting it doesn t work This happens sporadically but has been happening a lot lately Because of this I downloaded MyRadar and absolutely love it It had so many more features and is a lot more useful     Robert Kibler
This app used to be a great radar app but lately it won t even open correctly Instead of showing my time zone as Central often it opens up with UTC as the time zone and the radar doesn t work I m experiencing severe thunderstorms right now but the app shows that it is clear as can be That s not just irresponsible it s downright dangerous     John D. Johnson
I used to rely on this app constantly but something has changed for the bad These days when I open the app it is not synced with the correct time It will be several hours off with no weather displays This happens on all three of our devices Turning off the app at root level seems to work but that is an unsatisfactory work around         Vaughn Hughes
Have used this app for some time now but for some reason it blanks out Puts me in utc area where ever that is And radar reads nothing Tried reinstalling it and it works for one use and next time nothing I love this app I rely on it when weather is changing or im going somewhere and want to see if im going to run into any rain Please fix         Susan Kennerknecht
Uldate Had to uninstall delay was getting worse lately this app is not updating when I open it I have to wait some time refreshing and such then finally the radar shows what s in the vicinity maybe I even have to close the app a few times and open it again and then some more waiting I know it s not my internet I don t know what s going on with the service     San Man
Raindar use to be great until Weather Underground got a hold of it Now it only works about half the time properly When I know thunderstorms are about to move in half the time it won t show any weather at all just a map Other times it works OK Just not reliable like it use to be             niceknowingu2007
Great when it works but sadly years of neglect has taken its toll on this app For one storm tracks no longer work but much more importantly quite often the app shows a UTC timestamp and the radar doesn t load When the radar does load it s great and I especially love the ad free experience Unfortunately it s simply too unreliable to really use as a primary radar app anymore Secondary maybe An update would be really nice but since it s been 6 years I find that unlikely to happen                 Storm Trevor
So very sad Like so many others here have said this used to be an amazing app Did what it needed to do brilliantly But it s essentially unusable now For me on Android 10 it won t even start up and just crashes Very sad that I need to uninstall It s like saying goodbye to a trusted friend     Bruce Carrick
Old abandoned and no longer reliable This used to be the best weather radar app because it was simple and always retrieved weather radar data but only connects about 10 of the time now regardless of carrier or type of phone I would not bother and find something else         Michael Alexander
I used to love this app It s very simple It does one thing and does it very well shows a very accurate precipitation radar map Now it hardly ever works It was hit or miss for a while but lately it s just been completely broken It loads the map for my location but no radar and the timeframe in the upper corner shows a single time that s 4 hours ahead of eastern standard instead of a constantly changing time for each frame of the radar Please fix     Sam Gray
Used to be the best until recently now no longer useable because of its unreliability I don t know what happened in the last two weeks but it rarely loads the radar anymore When this occurs timestamps in the corner display UTC timezone instead of my local timezone Without updates this app may have just reached it s end of life     Scott Walberg
Great when it works Unfortunately it works probably about half the time these days Used to be more consistent It often will show no rain anywhere in the country But when it s working it is very accurate with the tracking and time             Brian Consagra
Used to love this app and I really depended on it to give me accurate information It was simple but easy to use Now it doesn t show any information on storms and the time is wrong I tried reinstalling to see if it would help but unfortunately it didn t     T7aqua _
Generally works well but sometimes doesn t update Yeah I ve waited more than 30 seconds I d prefer a manual refresh button somewhere even just a menu item Just moving or resizing the screen isn t always effective That said the app is accurate and very useful                 William G. Schmidt
I uninstalled this app a long time ago but figured I d throw a quick review in here Sadly this app hasn t been updated since 2013 before removal the functions that I found to be useful started to fail the radar itself would stop loading and the storm tracks would no longer display when the radar would work Unfortunate this app was simple and easy to use but due to the lack of updates and failing functionality I ve moved on             Eric Parola
Keeps reverting to UTC time At that time there is no data to show either I have downloaded the app several times You can make Raindar work Deleted the data several times Then the software will work once or twice Sad Was a great app     James Austin
The absolute best radar app available But Just upgraded to Android 10 amd its the only app that I can t use as it says it s not compatible with the new version of Android I am now forced to use some BS radar app Please upgrade so it can be used                 Rob Maggio
Great app I really love it but it seems like the past week it has been messed up Sometimes I don t get any Doppler participation showing in the map and the also the time is off by like 6 hours in the top left corner         Brandon Reznik
One of my favorite apps over the years but sadly it hasn t been updated in a very long time Now with the release of Android 10 it doesn t work at all I guess its time to find an alternative I diubt this app is getting updated                     Chris G
I love this app but it stopped showing radar data I tried contacting the developers no response It didnt show any storm tracks either The developer should update the software so the app works again Until that happens I do not recommend this app     James Schmidt
This used to be my go to app for radar and now it s worthless as the radar imagery rarely loads and im left with a blank map I m a pilot and used to use this app several times a day but have had to switch to more dependable apps         Dane Hauser
Great application love the look and feel but it loses stars because 90 of the time it will not refresh If look at the radar then go back into app 30 mins later it refuses to refresh even waiting 2 5 minutes A force quit and restart and it refreshes Been using the app for many years and am very tired of doing this             John LaGreca
It used to be reliable but within the last week it s occasionally not showing my time zone and instead says UTC That s not as much as issue though as the fact that during those times no actual radar images show         Adam Amos
Best app I ve used for local radar animation everything I need and nothing I dont I highly recommend this for anyone working outside with a need for up to the minute weather data and radar images                     seraphx037
Not happy with this app It used to love it because it would load quickly with really good detail and now I have to force stop it half a dozen times before the fkn pos thing will load the images Not happy with whatever update y all did     ras damaan
Half the time anymore this app does not work properly shows a different time and different time zone I m guessing I have my time zone set correctly and my location set showd me on the map but the time is off and doesnt show activity around me         Jeff Vinson
Always on point Automatically changes location with you so you don t have to figure out where you are before figuring out nearly weather Up to the minute accuracy lets you see weather as it is developing great when planning trips and excursions                     Gene Moody
R u ever gonna fix this app or should everyone just delete it It s been months maybe even a year and you haven t done anything to fix it and it just keeps getting worse by the day If I don t get a response or see it fixed within 2 weeks I will be deleting it Use to love this app but it quit working it wont show the storm tracks anymore even though it is checked So unless this is fixed i will be deleting the app cause i counted on the storm tracks to help keep my family safe     A Google user
The last update ruined the ease of use It only shows weather tracks if i zoom in really close and when i zoom out it cganges time to UTC So stupid I ve had this app for years but now it s time to uninstall     David Cartwright
Great app but doesn t work on Android 10 It quick fails with no logs for troubleshooting I really wish it still workes It was my Go to app for radar Previously rates at 5 stars     Joshua Armstrong
It used to be quirky but pretty reliable now it often doesn t show anything When it shows the local time zone correctly then I can trust the radar image but often it shows the time zone as UTC with no radar overlay         Tim DeChant
I ve used this app for years and love it it s starting to fail to receive data and uses a different time zone setting It s been doing that for several days now Noticed it once in awhile in the past but it s been two days now Time for an update                 C Becker
Used to work great now it never works Moving on to another app The only way I ve found to fix it is to uninstall and reinstall and even that only works for a little while     Thomas Griffin
It s good when it actually displays radar data I often have to clear cache and force stop to get it to show current data If not for that is love it         Mike Cornwall
Last update seems to have a bug for my LG phone map will come up with wrong time and will not display any radar Opening and closing seems to fix it eventually but very annoying         Brian d
When it opens up on my phone the clock on the top of the map is saying its 1 40 1 55 pm Thats great But its actully 10 30 am Your information seem a bit delayed by several hours     Al
Very accurate While watching a storm passing on the map when it shows it s almost over you you can believe it will start within a minute or so                     Joseph Wilson
