Awesome Alberta is a huge Province, I love this app, keeps me informed about everything as I have tons a family and friends scattered throughout the province.
Not getting alerts. Right now we are under a severe thunderstorm watch and it has been on Environment Canada and on The Weather Network websites and apps since Noon today, but nothing came up on this app. Really disappointed. I work outdoors and the funnel cloud over Calgary Area few weeks ago scared me so I got this app to alert me about severe weather. Didn't happen today
Highly Recommend ☆ but Needs Help Manual ★150323 = This is a very useful app 2 have on ur ph/tab device!?! Just 2 know what's happening anywhere in AB, in case u have loved ones traveling/camping or out of touch w/realities?!? ☆It Just Gives U That Heads up B4 News Media hears it!?! ★♥☆150514 = The app has paid for itself ~ well it was free but still, it's worth it, IMHO!?! ☺ LOL ☆★☆150625 = WOW!!! It Took Them Only ~3 Months 2 Add A Reply 2 This Review?!? REALLY, PEOPLE.....!?! ☆
Good idea but poorly executed. Installed today (August 5, 2015) after hearing a radio article yesterday suggesting it's usefulness. But after an Emergency Alert was issued later in the day, the app did not make any sound to provide audio alert, did not indicate (on my Samsung S4) that any alert message was waiting. After the radio interrupted to broadcast an Alberta Alert then I looked at my mobile - nothing, until I actually opened the app to see a message. Very poor! I would expect a highly audible sound alert and a visual alert to indicate something. Shouldn't the alert be via a text message or something? Presently, I would not trust my welfare to this app. Hopefully the developer will improve... soon! I love the concept.
Great Idea! Amazing idea! But can we please customize what alerts we get? Like different categories. For example, I could have notifications for natural disasters, Dangerous animal warnings, and notifications surrounding schools. It's because I want instant notification on emergencies, but not get warned about something like a train crash, so I don't get in trouble with alarms going off over something that won't affect me at the moment in the middle of class.
Some flaws I would like to be able to select more than just one area (if I want to alert someone I know in another city for example ). And for some reason the default sound is Silent and I can only select from my phone's list of sounds vs the AEA-specific one).
