MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., March 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- WeatherSphere's top weather app - NOAA Hi-Def Radar, the number 1 paid weather app in apple's App Store for 2012, adds lightning strikes in near real-time. This makes it the only app of its kind that can show rain in real-time, along with snowfall, lightning strikes, tornadoes, hurricane forecast tracks, severe weather warning areas, storm direction arrows, national drought severity, and wildfire locations on the same map.
"With lightning strikes showing up within a few minutes of actual occurrence all across the US, regular users, businesses and meteorologists can now be aware whether the approaching storm is actually dangerous for outdoor activity", said WeatherSphere's founder & CEO Raghav Gupta.
Lightening was the single biggest user request during the summer of 2012, especially from motorcycle and bicycle riders, commercial and private pilots, wildfire-response authorities, outdoor sports team players, and recreational event managers. Besides the combination of available data layers, the app's one million paid users help sustain a five-star rating average over ten thousand user reviews, which credit its simplicity and usability along with extremely fast download times despite the high-definition image quality.
Other new additions include the ability to send picture postcards with weather information to friends and family via email or social media. The app also allows unlimited place-marks for keeping tabs on weather for anyone from your address book. With snowfall during winter, tornadoes during spring, rain, lightning, wildfires during summer, and hurricanes during fall, NOAA Hi-Def Radar has something for nearly every day of the year.
NOAA Hi-Def Radar is part of WeatherSphere's other weather applications NOAA Snow Forecast, WeatherAlerts and SimpleTides. NOAA Hi-Def Radar is available at http://bit.ly/hidefradar for $1.99.
