Updated review. As of June 2 I still have issues where the app won't open. I get an alert and then it freezes on the opening screen. 2016 sometime. The app does not open. I get alerts but the app freezes on the opening screen and does not load. When it has loaded in the past I have liked it.
Much better since the last update.
Reason for alert should lead Great app except for the layout of the alerts. Try: 1) The reason for the alert, 2) the map, and 3) THEN three screens of the RM listings. If they have location enabled users know they're getting alerts about their area but still have to scroll, scroll, scroll to find out "Ok but *What are you warning me about?*"
Well, it works. That's the only thing that matters. There was only a minor lag between a test on TV and coming in though the app, but that is sufficiently in sync. It's a shame this is going to be redundant soon because of a future mandate for this to be baked into phones at the system level. At least the app gives you control and doesn't try to shove these alerts into your face like they do on TV.
Put alert information first I don't like the wall of text that you have to scroll by in order to read the emergency information, it be easier if the alert info came first. Also unless it is location specific (boil water advisory), weather & forest fire could be more generalized from a major locality (say affecting an area NW of Saskatoon up to 150 km). That way it would cut down on the need to list every locality). Right now the ap is effected by visual overload, it shouldn't emulate War & Peace.
Better organization The lastest alert that I got was for a very large section of Saskatchewan. The areas effected where listed in a paragraph style form which is very difficult to read and they were in no relevant order. Could you list the areas there are effected in a proper list with one rm per line and organize it alphabetically or grouped with other rms that are close by each other. Example the rm of mankota was listed just before the city of Saskatoon. That's not alphabetical nor even close to each other in region.
Minor bug fixes including stability improvements.
