Apps to Track Hurricane Matthew
According to Mashable, Hurricane Tracker is a pretty good one that can be download in the iOS App Store. It costs $3.99, but with it, users can get real-time news and updates regarding Hurricane Matthew from the National Hurricane Center. Users can also send information from the app to their friends, family, or anyone through text, Twitter or Facebook.
For Android users, there is Hurricane Hound from the Google Play Store. There is an ad-free version that costs $1.99, but there is also a free version that is riddled with advertisements. Even so, it can still function as a means of getting up-to-date information from the National Weather Service including Hurricane Matthew news, forecasts and public advisories.
There are also plenty of free apps that can do the job quite well. One is called Hurricane, which is by the American Red Cross, as per Heavy. It has a lot of features, such as tracking a certain storm's path, giving updates about its effects, setting up alerts and sending information to others. The app is available to download from the App Store and Google Play Store.
