  1. Allow the showing of Favorites in the top bar.

    In the previous version, I could show the current conditions icon, city name, and current temperature for my "favorite cities". This was very helpful and was is one of my favorite features.

    I still need to digest the rest of the new features before I comment.

    • Unable to hide sidebar

      I dislike the beta version. I can no longer hide the sidebar which reduces the map area. I can no longer easily get back to the current conditions.

      • Display severe weather warnings/watches with all animation frames

        The old WunderMap retained the severe weather watch/warning overlay throughout the radar loop (similar to the nexrad loops). The current version of the WunderMap turns the severe layer off during animation and then displays it only with the very last animation frame.

        The ability to see developing cells in relation to current warnings throughout the animation was much more interesting and useful than only seeing severe alerts over the last frame. While the nextrad loops cover this, its a regression from the previous version of WunderMap and was a much cleaner design that should be reimplemented.

          • 2 Second storm tracks?

            I activated the storm tracks on the "New" blundermap to see the timeline of the storm approaching. Well, they stayed for about 2 seconds, hardly long enough for me to see which way they were going,
            Where on this page is the link to the old wundermap, which actually DID work?

            • Frontal maps.

              Only on the dropdown for maps and radar can I go to current conditions and see the large area isobars and fronts. Can we get this data as an overlay on the Wundermaps?

              • bring back tick marks for favorite cities on radar

                I used to see a tick mark on the radar maps for each of the cities in my favorites list. At some point, this feature disappeared. Please bring it back.

                • Need easier way to get back to my favorites.

                  The old map, used to have a title bar at the top to get back to the weather of your favorites quickly. I would like to see that back. Instead of clicking on the WunderMap logo in top left which goes back to the main page.

                  • Get the satellite image loop to actually work

                    Personally, after using this since it came out, I find this interface EXTREMELY frustrating. Your previous version did a good job integrating animated satellite imagery with radar, or even by itself. In this version, the satellite imagery is, honestly, COMPLETELY UNUSABLE, even by itself. I am patient and have been trying this for months, but this is just too frustrating to continue.

                    The best enhancement you can make is it to de-clutter the sidebar on the interface (most of that stuff is completely unneeded.)

                    The best fix you can make is to get the satellite images to animate properly.

                        • Either show the tabs or favorites in the top bar

                          It took me quite a while to figure out how to get back to the forecast from the Wundermap ... at least show the favorites so it's easier to flip back and forth between the map and the forecast!

                                  When I open WunderMap and select another location from my list of favorites, I cannot then go into the list and make another selection. I have to back out of the app to the main page and go back in. Please fix this.

                                  • Using VIS satellite option for historical animation

                                    Is there a way to view the historical animation using the VIS mode? Currently, even when view animations during daylight hours, the display is in the IR4 mode.

                                    I'm still learning my way around the new WunderMap format, but so far it looks go.

                                    • Radar Map Re-sizing

                                      Whether it is the original or beta Wundermap if you open the map and change the scale specifically zoom out to see more area there is a delay in the radar image. The radar image itself displays the original images on to the new re-sized map, gets the new images from the servers and than displays the correct images on to the maps. This display delay is at least 5 plus seconds. When the map is re-sized shouldn't the radar images also be resized the same time as the map with no delay?

                                      • Radar Disappears at Different Zoom Levels

                                        Why does the radar images disappear sometimes when I change the size of the map, zoom in and out??

                                        Thanks
                                        Lee

                                        • Add real time Lightning Strikes

                                          add real time lightning strikes along with the storm tracks, give it a time limit to show from current to maybe last three hours.
