A simple app which causes a radar loop from the NWS to pop over running screen. Task bar quick link is automatically added, with homescreen shortcut possible. Hit back to exit, or the image closes after thirty seconds. Current radar loop is Midwest, but option to choose displayed image will be forthcoming. Note: the radar image may not immediately open if a slower connection is present. Also, the app may not open if previously opened within the last minute or so due to a built-in 'cool down' period for sake of stability.
Server-side changes should help speed the loading of images. Images are pulled from National Weather Service servers at regular intervals and processed on BuckeyeStorms server. Slower or spotty connections can cause older images to show at first. If this is the case, try reloading app by tapping again.
Beta testing resizing and radar site selection currently.
1.5 Up and running!
Future updates: Choose radar loop. Auto-optimize pop over for different screen resolutions.
