Review: MyRadar Weather Radar offers a plethora of information about the weather

Track weather, create multilayer maps, and more in this robust weather app.

MyRadar Weather Radar allows you to track weather using a variety of tools on your iPhone. From layers that present additional information like cloud cover and precipitation to general weather tracking tools, it is a powerful tool that goes deeper than most commercial weather apps to provide detailed information about what is really happening outside.

Once you install the app and load it for the first time, you'll be presented with a radar map showing the area and a quick overview of how the app works. You can then start making changes to the display. The settings are deep, offering a number of ways to visualize the weather, check the current conditions, drop in new layers for different types of radar, and more. The interface is not as streamlined as some other free weather apps. Rather it's designed to give you full access to a large pool of weather data. It succeeds well in this with numerous features at your fingertips. Finding and mastering use of all of these tools may take longer than in other apps, but the additional information and customization options are worth it.

If you want a weather app that goes deeper than just the hourly forecast and a few basic pieces of data about the current conditions, consider downloading this solid, free weather app. There are some paid upgrades that unlock additional features like hurricane tracking, but the majority of the core functions are free and the app runs very smoothly.
