  • No need to type a comma into the search box for city/state
  • Shows images from a wider range of time

Radar In Motion for the iPhone now available!

Posted in iPhone at 6:41 pm by Kamal

So Radar In Motion 1.0 is now officially available in the US App Store! Please stop by and grab it. I want to assure everyone that I am dedicated to working on the application and making it as good as it can be. Version 1.0 has a few issues that will be fixed in version 1.1, which I just submitted to Apple tonight. The features and fixes that will be in 1.1 are:

  • Remembers the last location you viewed the map for between application launches
  • Faster loading of maps and images
  • Faster lookup of locations when searched
  • Display maps from a longer period of time
  • No need to type a comma into the search box for city/state
  • Better reporting of errors when loading maps or determining location

In the long run, here are some of the features I plan to add:

  • Zooming
  • Choice of map to load from the National Weather Service
  • Remembering multiple locations
  • Better searching for inexact matches for city/states
  • A nicer icon (anyone want to help with that one?)

Please don’t hesitate to email me if you have problems. When you submit a problem, please give me the following information:

  • iPhone model
  • iPhone OS version
  • Connection type when experiencing problem (EDGE, 3G, or Wifi)
  • If loading current location, the ZIP code of your current location. If you are typing in a search, the location you are searching for

I’ll do my best to fix the issues that are reported and make Radar In Motion one of the best apps for the iPhone.

Radar in Motion for the iPhone is just around the corner.

UPDATE: The application has been submitted to Apple for review to be included on the App Store. We’ll see how long that takes and what happens. Here are some things to know about the application:

  • It uses the National Weather Service’s Composite Reflexivity radar.
  • You can search by city/state or ZIP code or use your current location.
  • It will cost $0.99.

I’ll let you know when it becomes available. Hopefully will be soon!
