In case you have not noticed, a strong hurricane is going to hit the east coast of the U.S. in the next few days. Hurricane Irene is expected to cause a lot of damage to this area (to businesses and individuals). Many of us in the east side of the U.S. do not deal with these types of strong hurricanes too often (just as we do not get earthquakes in this area). Preparation is key to survive the curve balls the mother nature throws at all of us. Hurricane Tracker for iPad is an exciting application that provides you with alerts, video/audio updates, and threat level maps.
When you are stuck in the path of a hurricane, you want to stay as informed as possible. This application offers live updates, tracking maps, threat levels, and watches/warning alerts. Users will get push notification alerts on new storms. The satellite shots and forecasts in Hurricane Tracker can prove very useful.
This application covers the Gulf of Mexico, Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean, and Eastern Pacific regions. It has a good looking interface and has more than enough information to alert you when something nasty is coming your way. As it turns out, Hurricane Tracker is very data intensive. But that is a good problem to have for those wanting to have as much information as possible on upcoming storms.
