Are the charts and graphs cool? Yes, I really like them. The information is presented in a clear crisp manner. You can see forecasts line projections of various variables such as precipitation and temperature, animated radar maps, and weather alerts. I easily give this app 5-stars on information and presentation.

Are the terms of service cool? No. You basically agree to let the app sell any info it collects about you to third party marketers. The TOS needs to be updated in the paid version to exclude these permissions. And it stays resident also, meaning once you start it, there is no way to stop it from running. It will always be on running in the background, and you agreed that it can monitor your wi-fi location and sell that information to whoever it pleases. I don't trust it.

It will also probably always remind you of the current weather in Minneapolis because that is the default and on the Kindle Fire it is difficult to change that. You can do it, but you essentially have to find the magic unintuitive settings to turn on and off a few times on the GPS page.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rocks on the Kindle Fire! February 12, 2012
Verified Purchase
This is a great weather app. The radar image has the best graphics. I like the weather alerts format because you can read the alert feed that comes from NOAA and see them by county on the map. When NOAA sends out the alert I get it from this app faster then from the TV broadcast and even my plug-in NOAA weather alert radio. A must have app if you need to know about bad weather. Other apps like the free ones and most paid ones fall short compared to My-Cast Weather. Worth every penny.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really Good App - Highly Recommended September 21, 2011
Verified Purchase
"My-Cast" is one of the most useful apps I have on my HTC EVO 4G (Android v2.3.3). My wife uses the light version of this app on her Samsung Epic and, after using it to helps us successfully navigate around the worst rain of hurricane Irene, I decided to get the full version for my phone.

This app provides detailed information on the current weather in a given area and is very customizable with "widgets" to display what you are interested in seeing, such as "Current", "Hourly Forecast", "Daily Forecast", "Alerts", "Radar", and quite a few historical graphs. I really like that the positioning of the widgets is customizable, allowing me to get my weather "fix" in a single glance. The really useful Radar display is near real time (usually less than 5 minutes behind) and can be animated to show a storm's path over a half hour period.

This is a very good app that I didn't mind paying for since it works exactly as expected!

Highly Recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Liked Lite, Love Full November 8, 2011
Verified Purchase
Single best feature above lite: live radar widget. I ride motorcycles frequently and I have the radar widget to quickly track rain in my vicinity. I loved the lite and wanted to support dev but had no idea how useful the radar widget would be for me. works great with the incredible 2.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best weather app February 2, 2012
Verified Purchase
I'm a serious weather geek and had been disappointed with the apps I found int eh market. I tried the "Lite" version and was unimpressed. The full version is completely different and worth every penny. Good radar, good forecasting, easy to use and pleasant to look at.

The best app I have foind so far, I purchased it after using the "Lite" version. The temp. is the closest to what I think it is, and the warnings are nice in an area prone to severe weather.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Weather App January 3, 2013
Verified Purchase
I have this app for my phone, the free version. The free version wasn't available for my Kindle HD so I paid for the paid version and I love them both. This is the best app out there. I can check the weather where I am and plug in zip codes to places I go often and see what the weather is. I like alerts and the graphics it has. Well worth $4

works so-so, moon phases are completely off. If you can deal with the ads get the lite version, much smoother and more accurate. In order to get notifications you have to pay a yearly subscription. Hell even weather bug includes that in the app. You shouldn't't have to pay twice.
