“One of the best weather tracking packages”

ProsI have tried many weather tracking programs but this is my favorite. I love that the tracking is connected to national radar and satellites. It has allowed my business to make better decisions for the safety of guests and crew
ConsThe software can be a little clunky, and I do not think they have an app. But the information they deliver is so often the most accurate.

“Weather defender provides all the real time weather information one could possibly need.”

ProsWeather defender has just about everything. I studied meteorology in college, so I am familiar with weather terminology and function. Great radar, and vast amounts of information for the weather professional or enthusiast.
ConsFor many people, there is too much information. That's not a knock on weather defender. The other con in my opinion is the monthly price. These days there are phone apps that provide much of the same information for a small one time cost. It's a great program, but I could not justify the price.

“Everything you need to know about your weather is there.”

ProsEverything you need to know about weather is there, combined in one single program. Weather you are just a weather enthusiast or you need it for safety/scheduling/whatever reason, it is easy to use and in can be a lot of fun. The user interface is easy to follow and understand. You can access real time data, follow storms, get alerts, and a lot of features allow customization.
ConsThe price. Definitely, the price. It was hard for me to justify paying for this software when a lot of the information can be found for free. If I didn't know where to find that information, then I would definitely have this software.

“Weather defender is a comprehensive weather tool with a beautiful user interface.”

ProsWeather defender is fairly easy to use, even for someone without a background in meteorology. The alerts are great, and I love the path of storm indicator. It has everything you would ever want to know about your real time weather.
ConsIt is pricey, and there are a lot of cheaper options on the market, although most of them aren't as robust. If you need top level weather information, Weather Defender is a good option.

“Best Overall Choice”

OverallI've been using Weather Defender for many years and consider it my 'go to' weather application. Weather Defender is simple enough for a novice user but flexible / scalable for enthusiast & professional users. I use Weather Defender as both a forecasting tool and for public awareness/alerting. The user interface is easily understood and includes many 'add on' features that allow for easy localization. Swift Weather as a company is constantly looking to enhance the overall user experience and add new features and utilities. Many of the versions and improvements are rolled out at no additional cost to the customer, an increasingly rare business model. This, along with excellent customer service, rank '5 Stars.'

“Weather Defender is an amazing weather software program...”

OverallWeather Defender is an amazing weather software program, which enables me to keep my website and social media followers up-to-date with the most accurate weather information before, during, and after the storm. As a meteorologist, Weather Defender gives me access to a network of Doppler Radars, the ability to track severe weather, access real-time weather data, and more. This top-notch weather software is customizable, affordable, and my pick for helping me keep both my followers and family safe from the storm.

“The Best Weather Program For Windows”

OverallI have been using Weather Defender since it was Swift WX. It is the program I love and depend on. It's interface is the easiest to use in the business, and it's options for customizations are one of a kind. I have owned and used every competitors program, and nothing comes close to Weather Defender. The only con I have is every once in a great while the custom map I have made and use stops loading, and becomes unusable. With the ease of loading layers quickly on a new map, it is a problem of not great concern.

“Great Product”

OverallWe've used Weather Defender to help keep young people safe at our summer camp for more than five years. Parents really appreciate knowing that we're on top of changing weather situations at all times so that we can get their children to safe, underground shelters well before dangerous storms hit (and, they can come up quickly in Nebraska). It's easy to configure and use. Plus, the support is second to none...always very quick to help whenever there has been a question.

“allows to connect with a network of meteorological satellites and radars to know about the weather”

Overallits use is recommended in times of storms
Prosalerts of the time that is expected, allows to evacuate with time to spare, before the storms arrive, it is the best in its style
Conslike any program that tries to predict the climate, has acceptable levels of prognosis, it is not very easy to use port people who do not know its functionality
