Rapid Report will be rolled into Chaser Location and fully updated for the November 2020 Spotter Network changes! Rapid Report allows you to report Severe Weather to Facebook, Twitter, Twitpic, and Spotter Network with minimal clicks and typing. When a tornado or large hail is dropping you don't have time to form a lengthy report. This app let's you choose from setup lists for Tornadoes, Hail, etc and add your own customized text to quickly post a picture or text status to Facebook, Twitter and Spotter Network. Drive users to your Live Streaming site or Media Broker for faster action and a more informed public! If you've ever fumbled getting a report out when the chips are down this is the app for you! Because sometimes weather happens and you don't have all your streaming equipment. Get reports out fast with just your Android phone. Use your keyboard Voice to Text to speak your report into the Narrative field.
Don't forget to get the companion app Chaser Location to automatically do the work of the SpotterNetwork client from your Android phone! See also SPC Widget and Hail Scale android apps.
Rapid Report now posts to all three places independently. You don't have to setup sites that you don't want to post to.
Press the Facebook button and go through the steps to authorize the app with FB.
Press the t Setup button to setup Twitter access one time and then you're good to go!
In Settings add your Spotter Network Spotter ID to the setting menu. Be sure to add your encoded number/characters, not your Name or Callsign.
Troubleshooting tip: If you are having trouble logging into Facebook, try this. Uninstall your FB app. Then launch Rapid Report and press the FB login button. Go through the prompts to install a new version of the FB app. This should resolve your problem. There was a bug with older version of the FB app that caused this.
Jan 2016 - Facebook Login is currently broken by the removal of some permissions that this app used. Please use the Twitter and Spotter Network posting until this is fixed in a future release.
Mar 2020 - Twitter and Facebook will no longer be supported. This app will be rolled into Chaser Location and continued support there!
