Radar Animation for ALL Graphics Modes: Older devices (pre iPhone 5s) and all but the newest iPads may struggle with radar animation when in "Apple Maps" (MapKit) mode. It is recommended that you use Classic or Express for radar animation. You might also get better results by adjusting the animation speed in map settings and/or zooming out. Apple Watch Support: Support for Apple Watch is currently limited. Unfortunately, there is not yet a way available to developers to implement zoomable/scrollable images. Please consider Apple Watch support to be a "hobby" at this time.

Thank you for supporting wxRadar! You'll never be bothered by an alert asking for an app store rating, however please consider taking a moment to rate wxRadar. This app suffered many a low star rating back when you were asked to rate upon deleting the app (iOS 5kwscnmrk). Unlike some apps, wxRadar never left this behind to charge customers again with a fresh ratings start, new version of the app. It is a admittedly a pain and takes time, but your honest ratings are very much appreciated by all developers! Please take a moment and rate your favorite apps again (especially apps by indie developers)!
