Key Functions 9/10

The MyRadar Weather Radar app is an all-in-one weather app that delivers accurate and real-time updates on the situation around the United States. Like traditional weather apps, this also allows users to pinch to zoom into a section of the map. Users can even pan around the country to see what kind of weather other parts are facing. Because the app displays all information in an animated radar, users can check whether rain, snow, or a hurricane is headed towards them or away from them as well as the speed at which it is traveling. Another great feature is the ability to choose the type of view users get - satellite, classic, heat, or HD. Users can customize their experience by turning on/off functions like; Forecast, Temperatures, Warnings, Hurricanes, Clouds, and more. The app also sends notifications and warnings when a hurricane or flash flood is imminent which gives them enough time to alert others and prepare themselves.

Usability 10/10

As mentioned earlier, the MyRadar Weather Radar app is easy to use and comes with a beautifully designed interface. Using the app does not require an in-depth knowledge of complex functions. All you need to do is activate your GPS and choose the kind of readings you prefer as a user. The options and tabs available on the app are straightforward and need nothing more than a tap to switch on or off. In the settings menu, you can customize the app according to what you like and activate push notifications for extreme weather. There is also an option for adding widgets to your home and lock screens so that you get all the information you need without having to go into the app itself. 

Cross Platform Use 9/10

The MyRadar Weather Radar app is freely available on Android devices in the United States. There is also a paid version of the app that is available on both Android and iOS devices.

The Verdict

All-in-all, the MyRadar Weather Radar app is an exceptional weather forecast app that truly delivers on more than one level. With features like hurricane warnings, flash flood alerts, and multiple viewing layers, this app is quite obviously, one to have. Thanks to the extremely detailed mapping solutions and brightly colored radar, users can understand quickly what the weather is like in any part of the country. The animations also help educate the user as to the path and speed of the conditions approaching.
If you live in the United States and in an area that is prone to hurricanes and erratic weather patterns, the MyRadar Weather Radar app is your best option to help you avoid dangerous situations. It is an accurate, user-friendly, and powerful weather app.

  • I think that having an app like this should be mandatory for every person living in Florida. Yeah, temperature, humidity, rain and wind forecasts shown in Myradar Weather app are precise enough to keep it in your smartphone forever. But the main feature for me in it is animated hurricane and tornado map. That's both useful and scary to know that natural disaster is coming, but thanks to the radar I can be prepared.

    • You bet. I was living in North Carolina, South Dakota, Kansas and Nebraska, can relate to it. As you might know, those states often suffer from tornadoes and hurricanes, once I almost lost my own family house and my car during the hurricane Harvey disaster. I'm grateful that the author shared the information about My Radar android app, it's really helpful and can saves lives.

    • I've been reading all the comments here and I'm thinking now that getting My Radar app for Android phone was the right choice. I'm going to stay in Florida till the end of this year, having such a tool is very handy and should help me to avoid bad weather and approaching storms. The only thing I want is to adjust map scrolling for my needs, it either too fast or too slow. Everything else it great.

    • I guess everyone at the East Coast has My Radar app android or a similar one in their pockets. I have it installed too, love its colorful and animated map. Makes me feel like I'm a weather forecaster myself as seen on TV. As for me, I live in Delray Beach, Florida, that's mostly a sunny and beautiful place, but humidity and high risk of hurricanes scare some people away from visiting it, especially after hurricane Irma incident.

  • Great app, I would rate it with 4.5 of 5 stars. I have My Radar app for Android on multiple devices for years, it's really handy for truck drivers like me, especially when driving Oklahoma and Texas states during the tornado season. Though it updates with 10-15 minutes delay, the readings are very accurate.

    • Hey there, Roy. As your colleague, I would say that hurricane tracker is not the main reason to install Myradar Android. Don't get me wrong, the tracker is great but the animated map with rain and wind forecasts is what really caught my eye and sold me this app. Though it started to work slower after the latest update, but I guess that's a sign for me to upgrade or change my old smartphone, currently using Samsung Galaxy s7.

    • I'm not a truck driver but my family travels a lot, every member of it knows how to use MyRadar app Android, even my five-year-old daughter does. Obviously, a hurricane tracker and flood alerts are the main reasons for me to have this app installed. It's animated map is also perfect for outdoor sports, so if you're into jogging or something this might be the right option for you. The only con here is its battery consumption. Due to a variety of available features available it kills battery very fast. But still, this app is better than a local weather forecast.

  • Hello, Todd. I downloaded My Radar apk a long time ago but decided to install it only now. You know, I'm quite impressed. At first glance, the interface is similar to any other weather app, but I loved the animated satellite map. Zoom feature is so cool and smooth, haven't seen such feature in weather apps before. The next strong point is its accuracy. Yeah, it's not perfect, but it works fine in rural areas. You know, TV forecasts usually ignore those but using My Radar Android app allows me to know when I should go fishing.

  • Great review, Todd. I've been traveling the US very often and used to have tons of weather apps, but eventually, I decided to keep only My Radar for Android. It really saved my work trips a few times when warned about the nearest hurricanes. And I love how they upgraded the interface with the latest update!
