News Feed Outage in Hurricane Pro, Hurricane HD and Hurricane Express

Good morning,

This afternoon our host will be performing maintenance on our news server, during which time, the news server will be unavailable.  Our host has notified us that it will take approximately 2 hours, from 11AM PST to 1PM PST for the server maintenance.  This outage will not interfere with our applications in any other way.  All data, satellite, radar and other images will be available as usual.

Thank you for your understanding!

Hurricane Pro – We are listening!

We are listening!  Hurricane Pro is changing to a similar format to the previous version, and keeping the speed for those that want to skip right to the map.

Hurricane Pro's storm list page is changing in 4.2. The information is larger, and tapping on the storm name will take you to our Storm Info page. But if you like that new menu, just swipe across the details and you'll get the quick menu!

In the new version, we are changing the storm list slightly, making the information larger.  Did you know that you can tap on the Outlook graphic to get detailed outlook information on the current area you’re watching?  Swipe the outlook graphic “back” to see our highlights – usually watches and warnings, but could be anything we feel may be important to you.  You can also swipe the outlook graphic forward to get more information – If there is an invest, you can see the percent chance it has of forming on the satellite map provided by the NHC.  These graphics are independent of the list, but give a very quick view of what is going on in the area that is important to you!

Ready for iOS 6

Tomorrow is the big day when everyone will update from iOS 5 to the next generation iOS 6. With this new update, you may have questions about how well our apps will work with this new operating system. In short, iOS 6 works very well with our suite of Hurricane Tracking Apps, as well as Traveler’s Quest and Cat Calls. Each app has been extensively tested over the last few months and we believe you will be happy with the results. While we know the new Maps interface will a big change from the current Google Maps in iOS 5, we believe that our apps continue to look spectacular with the new base maps. Some areas will need to be zoomed in farther than you are used to to get the detail you may be looking for.

As always, if you would like to speak to us about our apps, please use our Support Form and we will help you as quickly as we can.

Thank you for using our suite of Apps, created just for you!

Getting the Most Out of Hurricane

20120827-123735.jpgHurricane and Hurricane Express have a great feature which allows you to refresh the storm data for all storms at any time. Just go to the storm names page, and pull the menu down with your finger. When you do, you will see something like the image here and when you let go it will refresh and update the last refresh time. The NHC is updating on 3 hour intervals right now, 10am, 1pm, 4pm, 7pm, 10pm, 1am and 4am CDT. They will continue with 3 hour intervals while there are watches and/or warnings posted.
