Orlando, Florida – Kitty Code, LLC announces a major update for Hurricane Season 2014 to Hurricane HD for the iPad, and Hurricane Pro for the iPhone.
With less than 3 months until the 2014 hurricane season begins, and a lingering winter that reminds us to always stay prepared, Hurricane Pro and Hurricane HD are here to show you the cold fronts as they come across through satellite imagery and regional radar. It is always time to be prepared, and seem to always seem to expect another busy Atlantic Hurricane Season. For people with an iPhone, iPod touch or an iPad, there’s no better way to stay informed than with Kitty Code’s Hurricane Pro and Hurricane HD apps.
Hurricane HD has received a major update for 2014 with many features to keep you informed. The newly updated tracking map now includes Retina graphics, and with Apple Map updates, allows you to move the map around the world, without stopping. For several years we have allowed for the display of multiple tropical systems simultaneously, while the Hurricane HD Historic Storm Library gives you access to memorable storms of the past and can be displayed along side current storms within the tracking map. With the newly updated Storm Center, active storm bulletins, forecasts, satellites and radar are all at your finger tips, along with the ability to play through storm tracks. Hurricane HD also includes push notifications for the Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico, giving you the ability to stay up to date with whats happening in the tropics anytime day or night. The newly added video area gives you the easiest way to see the daily tropical updates, presented by Mark Sudduth of HurricaneTrack.com. Learn how systems begin and grow with his easy to understand explanations. The newly added Analysis area gives the Satellite, Radar and Tropical Analysis tools you need to stay informed quicker and easier than ever before.
Hurricane Pro for the iPhone and iPod touch has been updated for iOS 7, the iPhone 5 and of course now has all past storms to date. Hurricane, recently renamed to Hurricane Pro was the first application of its kind to cover tropical systems around the world.
Tracking storms since September 2008, Hurricane Pro continues to lead the pack as the innovative and inclusive hurricane tracking option, giving you easy access to everything you need to track a tropical system and keep you informed. Hurricane Pro introduced highly detailed, zoomable maps covering the Atlantic, East and Central Pacific oceans and now tracks the West Pacific, South Pacific and Indian Oceans as well. Receiving continued refinements over the last six years, Hurricane Pro has distance from your position to any point on the storm track, and the official 5 day Forecast Cone to the broadcast quality maps. Each storm continues to feature animated satellite and radar imagery when available, the latest plots for active storms as well as world satellites, bulletins and more.
“Hurricane Pro was the first complex weather application added to the iTunes App Store, and the latest release of Hurricane Pro builds upon the solid framework that our users have come to know and trust. The mapped forecast cone is an extremely important part of tracking hurricanes, showing you what areas could be affected. Hurricane Pro takes this a step further, allowing you to zoom in on the forecast cone, effectively showing you the exact extent of the cone of uncertainty. Hurricane Pro remains the only app performing this function to date on the iPhone and iPod touch and Hurricane HD is the only iPad app with this critical feature”, said Ilene Jones, Co-Founder and CEO of Kitty Code, LLC.
Hurricane Pro has grown a lot over the last six years, and has been very successful in showing where storms are, regardless of their location in the world.
