Our next app in our "App Me" series is one that I find really useful when I'm on the road and need to get a quick look at what the computer guidance is suggesting for the next few days. WeatherGeek is available for both the iOS and Droid platforms...and I have the iPad version. It is something I use a fair amount and despite the price ($4.99), it does provide me a quick resource at getting information that's available online already.
This app brings together much of the NCEP information that's freely available for hardcore weather followers into one place that you can easily maneuver through. No need for multiple bookmarks, zooming, or multiple browser pages being opened. For me, that's not a bad option in a pinch. I also think the app is great for meteorology students, storm chasers (get a handle on what's predicted short and medium term if you are on the road), as well as serious weather followers.
For the price, providing the additional services without the opt-in purchases would be worth it and make the app that much better. I think everything can be included at the $4.99 clip but I'm tight with my cash so if there's a way I can save a buck or two and/or get more bang for my buck I'm all for it! As it stands, it's a nice app that can become a bit of a pricey proposition if you purchase every add-on available.
