In short

Raindar is a free load radar app for Android created by Gerrit van Doorn. And this is a perfect way to see storm fronts.


The only downside is the use of old Google Maps APIs

Fun to see the storm fronts

I like the storm track and ability to see tornado and hail coming

Its much faster than any weather service's weather maps

Great simple radar app with no junk bundled in

Best radar app I found

Works great s2 This is by far my favorite radar app

Works flawlessly and uses very little CPU time

And it helps me schedule work

Best reason to have app

Time stamp WAY too small

Storm tracking does not work

I think the screen resolution is messing it up

Only way to refresh the image is too move it around the screen

WTH happened to the storm tracks

The apps radar just stopped working out here in Puerto Rico

Storm tracks stopped working on my Galaxy s6

Was in thunderstorms multiple times and it showed nothing

Fix this and I will give it a higher rate

I turned it on and off multiple times with no success
