WunderMap – Fullscreen Radar Web App

I’ve had a bunch of people ask me lately how I got this full screen weather map on my iPhone so I thought I’d share it with you all. First, it’s a web app. Don’t be scared, it’s still really nice. Go to http://i.wund.com from your iPhone and pic the city you want the radar to start on. You can either search for it or Safari should ask if the app can use your current location. Once you do that, scroll down to the radar option and click on “View Full Screen WunderMap” located just under the radar image. Once this screen is open, tap the plus sign at the botton of the webpage. Tap “Add to Home Screen” and rename it to “Radar” or something short.

The kewl think about this map is that you can pinch and zoom just like Google Maps. You can zoom way out to see the whole country or way in down to county and city levels. You can also tap “Options” in the top right corner of the site to turn on animation and severe weather overlays and change to different Satellite views.

Another thing you might want to do is make a different web clip with a different city and name them by each city. To do this you have to start over at the i.wund.com and enter the new city. You can’t just zoom to the location and add to homescreen.

  2. Weather Underground actually makes an app that also does all this…it’s called Who is Hot…check it out I’ve been using it for a while now and it has all the same functionally as their web app and also will use your current location…plus it can check the current weather location of people in your contacts….really sweet!

    Hey Doug – I’ve wondered this for some time now…and this post reminded me to ask you. Where do you live? You often mention that you live in Iowa, but where? I live in Cedar Rapids and work in Kalona, south of Iowa City.
