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.
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.
Nsw rfs 'fires near me' app Have been watching an out of control fire a few kms away for hours now and still not showing on the app although it is shown on the rfs website? I love the rfs and what you do for us but someone needs to work on getting info on to the app, some people rely on apps for info. Again, thanks to the women and men of of nsw rfs you are appreciated.
App needs some work It eoilf be grest if this app would have the fire danger index, instead of navigating to the full website, very tedious on the phone. Adding this would make it easier to act on the bush fire survival plan
Timely info update and improvement suggestion. The information is slow to update, if the info is parsed from the website a more timely updating of the website would help both systems. Also, a feature where by you can set a home location or use the mobile's GPS position and provide push notifications to users within a user set distance would be great improvement. Sometimes you only find out the is a fire nearby when you head out of the house and see smoke.
