Storm Tracking. Weather Radar. Compass. StormEye!
StormEye provides detailed information about the storms around you using a compass. For each storm near you, StormEye tells you important information such as the storm’s location relative to your location, where the storm is heading, the storm’s intensity, hail probabilities, and maximum hail size.
StormEye works by determining your current location using GPS or the network (or with an address/zip code) and then downloading data from the National Weather Service for the closest weather radar to your location. That data is then used to construct a weather radar with markers and storm tracks for every detected storm. The radar and storm tracks are displayed using a compass for easy orientation of where the storms are from your location.
