Better than nothing Saw smoke close and took a very long time to update. Random different colors for icons on fires. Should have option to plot areas that you get alerts if a fire. For example next to schools and home. Good start but much more potential needed.
Good basic app for seeing which fires are nearby. Really needs the ability to push a notification to users when a fire is nearby, otherwise you have to keep checking the app to see if fires are close or load it up when you smell smoke. Have lived in Victoria and used the FireReady CFA app which you can set proximity alerts for multiple locations (good if you have a 2nd property or concerned about a relative), very handy feature.
Extremely useful for those like me that live in a semi rural area with many large trees & nearby state forests. Regular checking could allow early exit from a seriously dangerous situation. I would recommend it to anyone living in country areas particularly.
Great app, but could use some improvements. An excellent idea and useful application, however it could really use some coding improvements. UI is slow and unresponsive whilst what looks like it is accessing the network. The option to show a scale on the map would be handy, as well as a default zoom level.
Very slow on updates during fires, no ability to define an area near me for warnings. (unlike Vic emergency app). Not enough detail either and accuracy is a bit slapstick. Better than nothing though
Radius a bit too big for suburbanites. Great app but 50 km radius is a bit huge in some cases. Would be nice to set to a smaller realistic size. Also would be nice to superimpose smoke data from BOM radar with satellite picture so we get an indication of fire (smoke) intensity and travel direction.
