Weather Radar Widget

Weather Radar Widget

Your Weather Radar is an animated widget on your home screen. Now with Forecasts

Additional Informations
  • Current Version: 1.7.7
  • Updated: June 27, 2017
  • Requires Android: 3.0 and up
  • Installs: 1,000,000 - 5,000,000



Three fixes in version 1.7.6:

1) The "rock back and forth" mode checkbox was previously not saving its state properly.

2) "Rock back and forth" mode now shows the intermediate images (as it was supposed to all along) instead of just flipping between the first and last image.

3) The bug affecting people who purchased the ad-free version should now be fixed—two days ago, a coding error allowed ads to show up on the ad-free version! This should no longer be the case, but if you encounter it, please let us know, and we will definitely issue a refund!

Thank you again for your patience and support

    This app used to be one of the best tools on my phone. I operate weather pages, and not having to open apps and pull up radar made my job so much easier. But I did a master reset on my phone and this app will not work. I have uninstalled and reinstalled and no luck. I will pay for this widget of it worked again. Please fix it and I will give 5 stars and $5, and the greatest review I can. This used to be an amazing widget. We all beg you to fix it. Full Review

    Living in an area where weather can change quicky, liked having radar widget on my home screen (Galaxy S5). Gave it 5 stars! Got an S8+ and now widget can't connect. App works fine, and when tapped the widget displays full-screen radar...but not having radar on home screen makes the app useless to me. Full Review

    Shows what I am interested in seeing. The weather systems sweeping across our nation. Let's me know in real time when to expect weather systems in my area. That is what I care about. Thank you for providing such a nice SERVICE. I do not have to LISTEN to any forecaster. I prefer just to look and see for myself. Much faster and easier for me. Full Review

    Update! New phone, Pixel 2 XL and the widget will not load. Error on loading. Please fix! Old Review from Nexus 6p...Excellent app. The widget is my go-to for current radar, and the animation loads faster than weatherbug or accuweather. Highly recommended! Full Review

    this was LITERALLY the highlight of my home screen... after weeks of begging developer(douche) to help me fix it he eventually blamed it on my phone and stopped responding...I switched to another android still didn't work...just take it off the play store if you have an outside power that causes it not to function. I would gladly paid $20+ for this when it worked now... Full Review

    I would have previously given this 5-stars due to it having a very clean, radar-only widget. For whatever reason now it cannot connect to the server (the widget) and upon trying to do a fresh install I noticed it wants permissions for my media, photos and app data. Why the hell does a weather radar widget need to snoop around my phone? Full Review

    I love having a quick shot of the radar all the time. It's also super easy to move around! Just curious if others are having an issue getting it tyo work on Samsung S8?? I can not get the widget to show the radar. Only works once I click on it. Full Review

    Have had several issues with this app on several occasions. Reached out to tech support several times, but cannot get a response from anyone (the developer) This app has an error on my Note 8. The widget does not work! Is the developer working to resolve this? So far, I highly doubt it. Poor customer service thus far. I will consider re-submitting a more positive review once I get feedback from this company. Full Review

    This App Is Great When It Wants To Work. I Only Works In Certain Places. It Seems Like Whenever It Gets Somewhere Unfamiliar, It Wants To Say Is Can't Connect To The Internet, Even When On Network Data. If This Issue Cannot Be Resolved, I Will Have To Delete It. Full Review

    Loved this widget when it worked. Have had issues for a few months now, as others have noted. 3 stars in hopes dev will get this fixed, b/c I bought for widget, opening the app is not what I desired. Full Review

    Doesn't Work It would be nice if it actually worked. Just gives me the option to retry to download the data, but never works. I'm bummed that it doesn't because it's the only one of its kind, a great idea! Full Review

    Doesn't work with note 8. I used this app to track snow storms while I was removing snow. Was a great app. Just doesn't work on my new phone. Will rate higher once fixed, if ever. Reading back a while for all note 8 users. Full Review

    Now that the widget problem was fixed, app really fills a niche. I really like it. Update 8/17: Widget downloading failing again. Unanswered email to developer. App works fine but the widget no joy. Full Review

    This widget is exactly what I was looking for. I have a LG v20 and I get a "download failed" error when I try to open. I note there have some technical issues & hope that's all this is so I can revise this rating. Full Review

    I only use to check the radar image for storms and see weather alerts for my area. I believe it does have other features which some would find useful. The radar works great, especially when I'm travelling on a day when there are multiple bad weather systems on my route--helps me avoid, stay ahead, or wait out the bad stuff. I live in eastern Nebraska and when I go to Colorado during the summer I inevitably run into severe thunderstorms at points on the way home. Full Review

    Widget is useless! It doesn't display radar image unless opened; just a download failure message. Get Radar Express instead; no widget but the ads are less obnoxious, it's fast and reliable. Full Review

    Widget quit working. Says can't connect to server. Bummer..... It's exactly what I need in a weather radar widget for the home screen. Radar at a glance, or press play to animate the storms within the widget. Click to go full screen. Full Review

    Update: Now getting java errors on the widget, main app page still shows radar. [Great app, easy to just get a glimpse of the weather patterns without having to launch an app.] Full Review

    Ad's are not necessary and timing on the weather is false. When it's raining on my home and im looking for rain or thunderstorms in my area and on the radar shows nothing but clear there's something wrong with this app. Fix it or erase the app completely. Full Review

    The weather widget fails to load thus making it worthless to me. This problem has plagued this app for months and it speaks to a lazy developer. Support your work or pull this garbage off the marketplace. Or I'll do it for you.... Full Review

    The app is unresponsive with my note 8. This app worked great with my note 5 and was looking forward to having it again. But it didn't work at all with my phone. Very disappointed. Hopefully this app is updated in the future for my phone. Full Review

    Simple weather radar to help keep track of those nasty storms that roll threw your area. No fancy other distractions to keep you from informing you of approaching bad weather. Just a simple Radar app. Great job on the developer for this handy tool. Full Review

    There's SO MANY different weather apps, it is very difficult to find one that suitsveach person's personality. I know personally, I have been thru this very process at least 100x if not more. Your app is concise, dependable and never missed a beat. I know THAT I will not be looking for another. Now, if I could find the perfect wallpaper app. 😭 Full Review

    Very simple&easy to use.The animation is ok,needs to be little smoother. UPDATE: on Note8 the widget doesn't show the radar like it's supposed to. BUT if you tap it to open app, it works fine. Basically it'll save battery because there's no animation when you look at it, lol. The important thing is it works when you enter the app. Full Review

    Desktop overlay breaks a lot and frequently says download failed as other users have pointed out. This is the main reason I got this app a few years back so incredibly disappointing that for me it simply doesn't work at all. Full Review

    Dev has apparently abandoned this project and the widget will no longer work with newer phones. This was rock solid on my S5 but on my S7 it gives a failed to download option. DON'T GIVE ANY MORE MONEY TO HIM until this is fixed. Full Review
