It’s nothing special— just a skin of the website— but it is useful to have one-click access. The more readily available this information is and the easier it is to find and interpret, the safer we all are.
Nice to have easy to view app for this info, but… If you don’t use the report submittal tool, its not much different from the website, which they could just make responsive, and skip the app. What would make this app shine is if they could restyle the raw weather and snow data (that so many backcountry users end up accessing anyway) into a mobile friendly format.
This is supposed to be an update to optimize use with iPhone 5s and 6. I have had nothing but trouble and there are so many problems it would take too long to list them all here. The camera function does not work, you can't pinch the screen in and out or rotate the phone for wider reading. It locks up in a useless expanded mode....... Enough already. Am I the only one having problems with the optimized version? What am I doing wrong? I reboot and have even deleted and reloaded the app several times hoping to get lucky. The old version always worked fine. Hey guys, if it ain't broke......don't fix it.
Things have come a long way in the past couple of years! Awesome app for anyone that likes to get outdoors in Utah. Even if you don't backcountry travel, the information regarding current conditions and links to various weather sources is awesome. More information makes you a more independent decision maker...so know before you go!
I can't wait until we get some snow and I can really use this thing. Awesome that the Avalanche center made this mobile app! Looking forward to a fun and safe winter season! I just moved here from Colorado and the caic should make an app like this!
This app is my go-to source of information on snow conditions in Utah. I check it every morning before I go snowmobiling. The UAC does an amazing job keeping it up to date on current snow and avalanche conditions.
Everything you need to make smart decisions in the backcountry is available with this app! Avalanche advisories, weather & road info, and access to current observations and reports are all included. Best avy app on the App Store by far!
Well designed, high performance, very well thought through. A must have app for those headed out to the Utah backcountry, as well as those who want to know the in bounds conditions. This app saves lives! Thank you UAC!
