Storm Chase Buddy, an Android app by AndroidFanBuddy.com, is designed to provide and organize a lot of weather-related information. This app provides basic, up-to-date weather, but the really interesting stuff comes in from the regularly updated feeds.

Storm Chase Buddy provides an easy access point to catch up on RSS-based weather-related news streams, police and emergency scanners, airport conditions and extreme weather alerts. Information is provided alongside its corresponding point on the map, and Storm Chase Buddy also has a journal/log feature, so weather trackers can keep all their notes in one place.

And considering all the data that Storm Chase Buddy provides, it sounds like this app has potential to be overwhelming, but menus are concise and easy to navigate. Plus, it's good looking. The app takes full advantage of Android phones' sharp, detailed displays and crisp colors. The mesmerizing rainbow of radar might just look better on your phone than it does on your television screen. At $2.99, Storm Chase Buddy can keep all your weather curiosities in one place.
