In June, version 4.0 of Hurricane was released, also receiving a new name – Hurricane Pro. With this update, Hurricane Pro 4.0 added some some great new features, as well as an all new layout and design. While Hurricane Pro looks very different, it contains all of the same information Hurricane provided previously. Features which were hidden like Radar, Forecast Models, Sea Surface Temps, Outlooks and Discussions are now easily found in the navigation menu. Now you can find preparedness information, Storm Names, the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale and Tropical Cyclone FAQs in the same easy to find menu.
This year we’ve once again updated our past storms list, updated our preparedness information, tweaked our layout to make everything flow even better, and we’ve added in more Satellites and Radar than before! Hurricane Pro provides the most detail available out of any other Hurricane Tracker out there. Now with our updated layout, all of the features we’ve added in over the years are even easier to find.
We hope you take a moment to look around the app before hurricane season starts. You will find that this one great app also helps you watch severe weather while you are on the go too! Listen to your local NWS Weather Radio station and view radar imagery. It’s all there, just waiting for you!
Thank you for tracking the storms with us over the last 5 years!
This year Kitty Code was honored once again to be nominated for Best Weather App for Hurricane Pro and Best Location App for Traveler’s Quest in the Best App Ever awards contest, where their aim is to honor the best, not just the best selling. With over 1 million apps to choose from in the App Store now, it is harder than ever to get your apps in front of the people who would enjoy their use most.
We have pushed hard each year, making sure that our customers and players know that the contest is going on, because this is community based and without a community, you will not even make it past nomination. It was an amazing turn out this year!
Traveler’s Quest was not only nominated for Best Location-Based App this year, Traveler’s Quest also won Second Place! What an awesome, connected community of players we have that helped this wonderful game finally reach this level! Many of our players have been playing this game for over 4 years now, and we can’t express enough, how much our players truly make this game worth creating, working on and being a part of. Thank you to everyone who helped us reach second place!
For Best Weather App, Hurricane Pro received a great nomination and honorable mention once again from our awesome community. Considering the contest happens off season, when many of our customers are more interested in Skiing and other winter endeavours, it is great to know that we can get in there and still get the nomination! I am confident that we could win out right if this contest happened DURING hurricane season! Thank you to all of our customers who have been with us for 6 years, tracking the storms!
