Track Hurricane Bill with your iPhone


hurricaneHurricane season is always exciting (in a bad way) for me.  I live in an area that often finds us in the path of a hurricane or tropical storm.  In my search to find tracking information for these storms, I found that there’s an app for that, too.  Hurricane by KittyCode, LLC is available for iPhone and iPod Touch users for $3.99.  It provides satellite images, data bulletins, forecasts, and radar (when in range) for storms in both the Atlantic and Pacific basins, updated as new information is available.  It also has historical data for all hurricanes to 1851 in the Atlantic, 1949 in the Pacific.

Here’s a picture of the satellite image of hurricane Bill taken on my iPod Touch on 8/18/2009 at 1:11 pm EST.

    Don’t know where you live, Janet, but I can sympathize. Here in Edgewater (Fla) we feel like we’re in the barrel of the hurricane gun. Funny it never occurred to me to look for an App for this…there really is an app for everything!

    Annie, here in central North Carolina, we only get the dregs of storms. Even that scares me, and I can’t imagine living on the coast. And yes, they really do seem to have an app for everything!
