Product Description
All the Weather Information You Need, All the Time

The award-winning My-Cast Weather app offers comprehensive weather information in an elegant, uncluttered package. The app provides detailed, location-based weather observations, predictions, maps, alerts, news, and discussion in a convenient nested format. Intuitive controls enable location resets and saving, GPS tracking, as well as customizable notifications, update intervals, and displays. Social tabs provide you with current feeds of the My-Cast blog, Facebook and Twitter updates, and related tweets.

Dashboard

The My-Cast home screen lays out the app's basic features with six simple and intuitive buttons, called: "Currents," "Forecast," "Maps," "Alerts," "Social," and "Tropical".

Constantly Updated Conditions

The Currents button provides the (both mercury and "felt") temperature, dew point, wind, humidity, and atmospheric pressure observations, updated up to four times an hour. You can manage the update frequency via Preferences. A 24-hour trend line appears alongside each measurement for reference. Additional measurements track daily UV and air quality observations, expected sunrise and sunset times, and comparative past high and low temperatures. You can also set notifications of current conditions to appear in your device's status bar.

Looking Hours and Days Ahead

The Forecast button displays hourly and seven-day cloud, temperature, and precipitation projections in numerical and picture form. Break out the daily forecast into detailed text predictions with one touch or view the weekly forecast in a customizable graph that appears behind a separate tab.

Maps and Alerts

The Maps button provides scalable, real-time radar and cloud images centered on your location, much like you'd see on the Weather Channel or your local news. The StormWatch map shows current National Weather Service watches, warnings, alerts, and advisories.

The Alerts button shows notifications of any current weather alerts or warnings for your area.

The Tropical button shows NHC forecast maps and data for hurricanes and tropical storms.

Social Links

Check out My-Cast social links to get the latest tweets and other online resources. The Social button takes you to the My-Cast blog, Twitter, and Facebook tabs that you can use to catch up on the latest weather news and discussion right there from the app. See My-Cast's latest updates on the social networking sites, who's tweeting about #mycast, and go in depth with the major weather developments on the My-Cast Weather blog. See an update, warning, or alert worth sharing? Built-in Twitter and Facebook links let you instantly tell others about it on Twitter or Facebook.

Custom Settings

With the needs of travelers in mind, My-Cast lets you reset your current location, and save others using the My Location control panel. In addition, a GPS "Follow Me" option in Preferences enables constant updating.

The My-Cast dashboard allows you to view multiple features at a glance, to add or delete widgets, and rearrange their displays.

Comprehensive Weather Resource

My-Cast makes the perfect weather resource for the busy traveler or the just plain busy. Consult this versatile tool wherever you go, whether you're checking on the progress of a major storm, trying to decide what to pack on your trip, or just thinking about whether to carry an umbrella today.

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 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.

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.

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.

This app is great and probably deserves a five, but I don't give fives very often.
The sharpness of the weather maps drew me to it and I was not disppointed.
