Radar In Motion2.8.1

02 September 2016

Widget displays animated weather radar images.

Overview

Radar In Motion is a Dashboard widget that grabs radar images from the Weather Channel or NOAA and displays the animation. One can access the radar for a given city in the United States or get a regional map, including several international maps. The widget has options for displaying and updating the maps, including weather alerts and the ability to save maps for a specified period of time.

What's new in Radar In Motion

As of a few days ago, my map is blank. The widget is now just a big black box on my dashboard. Doesn't seem to be loading maps from either source anymore.

<sigh> Was ABSOLUTELY the best radar option on the Earth to which the public has access to before weather.com screwed us over. Now we're stuck using NOAA, which is just no where nearly as nice.

The bottom of the widget shows 7 Dec 16. The only problem is it's the 10 of Jan 17. I closed the widget and put a new one in. Still no difference.

Love this widget, but it appears the weather.com maps are busted again after working for a while (they probably did something to interrupt the feed). NOAA maps appear to be working. MBP 15" 2.0 GHz Ci7 10.8.2

Hooray! An update to my favorite Widget (the only reason, other than DeliveryStatus, that I still use Dashboard). Top-notch widget. Thanks and I wish you'd add a "donations accepted" button to your home page. Though I know there's no real future development planned, I would ask that you consider making the lower-bar thing -- the part that pops up when you mouse by it to refresh, add/remove, and cycle through your maps -- visible all the time.

Greatest widget! I refer to the dashboard button on my keyboard as the "Radar Button". The regional 300 and 600 mile radars are working now.

My favorite widget after Delivery Status. Note for those having trouble with 2.6.4: I had to reboot after installing it to get it to work.

Absolutely, by far, the best weather app anywhere. Due to the inability to work properly for the last several weeks I literally swore off checking weather updates b/c simply nothing is as good as this widget at quickly getting a glance of where we're heading as far as local weather is concerned. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

My favorite widget, but still no change from last version (regional maps don't work). The new download is still V 2.6.2. - not 2.6.4. Also, even though I trashed the old version and it's pref file, The new installation shows my zip. Is there another hidden pref I can't find? 10.6.8 - 2011 Imac

It looks like the latest version of Meteorologist can retrieve Weather Channel maps again, so maybe there's still hope for RadarInMotion.

According to the developer, this widget may now be on life support (see http://dividedsoul.net/RadarInMotion/) due to recent changes to The Weather Channel's maps and an unspecified problem processing the ones from NOAA. That's sad, as this widget was top notch in my book. :(

I like this widget. It displays the moving radar picture very well and lets you tailor it to your liking. You can adjust frame speed, source of the radar, how often it updates, how long it saves images and more. I'm very happy with it. Other widgets I've used stop updating and show you images or loops that are days old. The only glitch seems to be with the posting of the latest version. No matter which link for version 2.6.2 I download (developer, Apple, MacUpdate) they say a newer version is available. Each version shows in the Finder as being 2.6.

A really useful widget. Occasionally fails to work but what do you want for free? NOTE: there is a new version (2.6.2) that was just released on 4/9/11. There has been no update submitted to MacUpdate, apparently. Go to the developer's site for the link.

Stopped working altogether on 2 different computers running different versions of OS 10 (PPC 10.5 and intel 10.6) so does not appear to be a platform specific issue.

Not working under 10.6.6 on the new MacBook Pros (early 2011; Thunderbolt). Deleted widget and preferences, downloaded and reinstalled, also cleared cookies/cache all per recommendations at site. Each time it will eventually lock up Dashboard. A quick read at the developer's site says he's stopped development, which is too bad. Haven't yet found a decent re-sizable radar widget to replace RIM.

RIM behaves strangely on Powerbooks when not connected to the internet. It displays the question mark icon and the progress bar loops over and over. What *should* happen is that the last set of maps should be retained until the next connection to the internet. As it is, it appears very unpolished.

This app opens in less han a second and displays radar I usually have to pull up from accuweather's page - I don't install tons of these little widgets but this one is great - esp. with the winter weather moving in on us - to be able to pull up the radar this easily and quickly is a real time saver!

One of my all time favorite widgets, though 2.0 beta is very, very slow on a G4 with 1GB RAM. For now, I'm going back to the older version. 2.0b doesn't refresh as quickly, if at all, and takes way too much processing power, IMHO. Obviously, it does more, and is in beta, so I hope the fine Developer will find ways to fix it. Look forward to testing a final release.

This has always been my favorite widget. Now it has really come a long ways! I look forward to 2.0 final. Just simply the best radar widget. (for the US anyways)

Finally, I don't have to change the map to my area by hand. Great widget, very useful. Thanks for a nice widget. Everything works as advertised.

AWESOME! Thanks for returning the click-zoom functionality. And I don't mind (FWIW) that it doesn't scale. I suppose, and this is a minor point, that the scaling would consume extra CPU, so click-zoom works great as-is. And, just a question, where would the alert(s) pop up should there be one? I've yet to see that happen. I see alerts via WeatherMenu, but not this.

Is it possible to save out preferences so that I don't have to set everything every time I start using a new version? Can you make a checkbox for never seeing the start/stop/etc buttons? Thanks!

Very nice. I disagree -- I like the scaling corner because it stays at the size that fits within YOUR set of widgets instead of sizing to something that might not fit the way you have your widgets laid out.

Can you please give back the auto-zooming -- but perhaps make it a check-box preference? I really liked having that one-click zoom feature as opposed to having to manually scale it now. To me that's a loss as it adds extra mouse movement and clicks. Still love the widget, but would rather not lose stuff as it gets better.

I have update the archive file so it shouldn't be corrupt for those who were having trouble. The new version of the zip file works for those who emailed me saying they had trouble. You should be able to download the new zip file at http://www.dividedsoul.net/RadarInMotion/RadarInMotion.wdgt.zip and extract it without any difficulties.

Consistant failure to decompress with each version up to 0.8. All other items decompress fine on my computer. Would love to try this, but never have been able to get it to decompress successfully (MacOS 10.4, Stuffit Expander 9.0.1)

This isn't bad but as I like a streamlined system I just use SlothCam widget and set it's url to the weather maps I want to see and the refresh rate to what I want. That way I keep the number of actual installed widgets low.

Fantastic! Love all these Weather.com maps! Now the question is - can anyone do a WeatherBug-like widget? (Without the yearly fee and incessant ads, of course :-) Also like to see WeatherMenu-ish widget to complement the menubar app.
