  • Radar is premium subscription

    By MicheleB1
    Update. 8-10-19. I physically relocated To a new state and says gps auto update but it won’t change locations. This is useless. Must be a bug but can’t get it to update to my current location. Should not be difficult at all. Original review. Downloaded and took a quick spin around. And really like what i see until i get to the radar option. Overall I think this is a great app I would have paid for but not for the subscription amount. Radar is only for subscription and to me is too basic a function and covered by too many other good apps for free. I would definitely pay for this app one time but not subscription. Really tired of everything going to subscription. Especially with apps I will lose track and keep paying and paying. I guess that is what they bank on.
  • Great Features In The New Version!

    By SF Presidio
    I love the new Sky Command Tab. Set against beautiful backgrounds the information is concise and useful. The Sun and Moon location tools overlaid on my position make planning much easier. Directly above is the Golden Hour, Blue Hour, Nightfall, and Dawn Times. It’s great for daylight shooting! For nighttime photography the Aurora tab tells me if the Northern Lights will be visible. Combining that with the Moon Phase, and Weather sections, and you know the odds of an Aurora vigil paying off. This app replaces several other apps I’ve bought. The subscription is reasonably priced. All told, this is an app well worth the investment for anyone interested in either photography, or the outdoors!
  • Crashes and will not work

    By wvgsosad
    The app installs well and asks to locate for forecasting, etc. when you give approval it follows by crashing and continues to crash with every activation thereafter. Looked hopeful but ultimately only a scandalous heartbreaker. Don’t waste your time on false promises.
  • Best weather app for photographers but new version crashes when opening

    By Dave from PR
    Love the app and use it everyday. But the latest version crashes upon opening. Posting it here because I am not able to send a support ticket from the app.
  • App USED to Work

    By dailydepiction
    This app used to work. Now whenever I select a location it automatically quits out. I e tried restarting my phone. I’ve tried resetting my phone. Even tried deleting this app off my phone and reinstalling it multiple times. Tried setting the app to use my location and also not use it - failed. Tried setting push notifications off, and on - still failed. I loved this app; what happened to it?!? Did you guys write in some algorithm that disables use after a certain number of uses without purchasing it? Seems like it to me, and just when I started to like it...
  • Constant Crashes

    By odysseywoods
    App will not work. Each time I open the app it crashes
  • Crashes repeatedly

    By reaist
    I was able to access this app the first time I opened it. But since then, the app crashes within a split second when I try to open it.
  • Awesome app for photography!

    By SyrComPhoto
    I use it everyday and it has never let me down in planning out my photography. The weather forecasts are spot on, but there’s so many other tools and features that are incredibly useful.
  • WARNING! More bugs than usable features

    By Snipes2083
    Attempt to edit gear causes app to force close. Address search results in “my photo places” cannot be selected and improperly displays in user interface. Use of the camera in the “my photo places” results in force close of app. In app support fails to send on both WiFi and cell connections without any indication and requires that you delete your support message to go back to the app. I used this on the iPad Pro 11. I have no doubt that this list does not represent the entirety of bugs present in this application. I experienced a force close for the first 5 features I tried to use and decided it best to remove the application and put a warning to future users. The app looked promising but turned out like every other poorly coded, subscription or micro transaction apps that litter the App Store. Rest assured knowing that the subscription creation/ in app purchases is functioning properly. You will have no issue getting the app to accept your money, but this is a near complete list of functioning features, generously made available through this app.
  • Does it work

    By pereed
    I do landscape and astrophotography and it says partly cloudy when there is not a cloud in the sky. It does show my location on the map but not sure about the forecast. I will continue to use it along with other weather apps.
