iMapWeather Radio App for iPhone
Weather can have horrifying results, and that might be putting it mildly. Its devastation is beyond words and 2011 showed us some terrifying results across the mid-west in the United States. Technology without doubt saves lives–from vehicles to cellphones–and this application is no exception. Knowing what is about to come is half the battle, and here’s one iPhone app that can give you an edge.
iMapWeather Radio, developed by Weather Decision Technologies, Inc., combines radio alerts, up-to-date infrared imaging, and GPS location at the palm of your hand when needed most. Apples App store is flooded with all sorts of weather related applications, but finding the one that suits your needs can become a task.
Main Info: iMapWeather Radio App for iPhone
- App Price: $9.99
- Version: 1.3
- Size: 7.9 MB
- More Precise Alerts:
iMapWeather Radio provides more precise alerts than those offered by the typical consumer alerting service. Most alerting services will alert you to severe weather if you are in a county only partially covered by a watch/warning, even if you are not actually directly in the watch/warning. With iMapWeather Radio you only get an alert if your device or saved locations fall inside a watch/warning box. That means you are not disturbed by false alarms.
- Follow Me:
Follow me is a critical feature if you are on the go. Imagine that you are driving through severe weather, or trying to get away from severe weather. This app will alert you if you enter an area where a watch/warning is subsequently issued, without you having to do anything. You don’t have to stop and add a new location. The app will make sure to deliver alerts to you no matter where you are.
- Friends and Family:
iMapWeather Radio can follow your current location alerting you to dangerous weather, but you can also save five additional stationary locations. That means you can make sure friends and family, at school, out-of-state, at a ballgame, etc., are safe as well.
- Battery Management:
The application is designed conserve your battery even though it uses GPS to give you alerts for your current location. We can’t give away our secret sauce, but just know we are careful to limit the GPS usage and we dynamically reduce the usage to help extend battery life.
iMapWeather Radio provides audio alerts in the form of beeps followed by a brief description of the alert type. The audio could wake you in the middle of the night or give you the information you need when you can’t stop to look at the phone. Furthermore, you can always listen to the alerts and forecast for your area at any time.
In markets where local media partners participate, you can get streaming video of severe weather coverage. So, you can get up-to-the-minute coverage.
- Trusted Provider:
WDT Inc., is a trusted weather provider for most of the major weather brands in the U.S. Weather is our business and has been for more than 10 years. That means you can count on us to create a top-notch app and continue to improve it.
From one app to another we finally found one that gave both NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) radio alerts combined with infrared imaging. The best part is: the infrared imaging is updated every few minutes allowing you to keep a close eye on weather heading your direction.
