App is a great idea. So far it seems to work good. Hopefully it is updated quickly to allow the critical event notification to be silenced or changed. The alarm sound can be very annoying if it goes off even when my phone is silenced to warn of an event hours away.
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.
An amber alert was just issued and my settings are for all of Saskatchewan and the app did nothing to alert me. The amber alert shows up under all but not my alerts. Why?
Great in concept but definitely glitchy. Also, there NEEDS to be a way to change the critical alert sound. That is beyond obnoxious!
Never did get an answer as to why this requires access to files/media/storage. I would really like an explanation from the developers.
I found out through the Environment Canada email that there is a thunderstorm warning in P.A. This app ignores Prince Albert for some reason.
Minor bug fixes including stability improvements.
