The Top 5 Hurricane Tracker Apps

Here in Bradenton, we are no stranger to hurricanes and we know how important it is to have up-to-the-minute details. We had a close call last weekend with Isaac, so we at Switch Mobile want to make sure we do our part to help keep our customers and their families safe during hurricane season. We’ve compiled the following list of hurricane tracker apps so you’ll be well informed and not have to sit through hours of news coverage to know what’s going on!

1.  Hurricane Tracker by EZ Apps, Inc – $2.99.

This app covers The Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean, Atlantic Ocean and Eastern Pacific.  It includes tracking maps, reports from the National Hurricane Center (NHC), threat level map, checklists, detailed push alerts and storm history.

2.  CaneCast Hurricane Forecaster by Mobile Data Solutions, Inc. – $0.99.

As seen on LifeHacker, the CaneCast Hurricane Forecaster will give you up to the minute details on hurricanes in your region.  This app allows you to see 48-hour projected forecasts, wind speeds and push notifications for when a hurricane forms in your region.

3.  RadarScope by Base Velocity, LLC – $9.99.

Although this app isn’t specifically for hurricanes, it is a great investment.
