We strive to make Hurricane the best possible hurricane tracking application for your device, however we do not presently have every feature we would like to implement in the application. We started with the Atlantic Basin, and plan to expand to the Northeast Pacific (North American West Coast), then to the Central Pacific and finally to the West Pacific, South Pacific and Indian Ocean.

Our goal however, is to create the best, most informative hurricane tracking application for you.
