Not Good for Emergencies Had this app since last year. Emergency notifications come after emergency has passed. Alert portion of dashboard quits working every time it's selected (even when known alerts are out there). Can be used for basic prep, but that's all.
The idea is great, but the app is half baked at the moment. Lots of stuff simply doesn't work like it won't save photos for me or even send the text messages that I am safe. I just get an error message without any specifics. It's nice that you can store info in it for emergencies, but most of this type of info you may already have in your phone like contacts. Good for helping you to create an emergency kit, but you cannot add your own things to the list which would be helpful. It excels in educating you with information on specific threats, where to find shelter centers and your local resources contact info. It also shows VDEMs Tweets which is nice if you don't use Twitter so you can at least see emergency news from the agency. As for the overall design, it's a bit poor with buttons being very small on high resolutions screens. There doesn't seem to be any dynamic sizing and no zooming in on any text screens. The Android back button works properly sometimes and exits the program other times. I would like to see it adopt some Material Design layout and better dynamic sizing.
Can an emergency plan be printed or shared? Spend a bunch of time inputting info. Now I can't figure out how to export a hardcopy of all the filled out info to print or how to share with another user so we don't have to input all the same info again. Great idea for an app but needs improvements!
App will not open Same as others even after the update message unfortunately application has stopped
Same issues as everyone else Click on items or info and just get a white screen, crashes, etc
Becomes unresponsive when keyboard is accessed. On my Android SG5, the app becomes completely unresponsive the moment either the Samsung or Swype keyboard is opened. The instant I tap into a text field, the app starts jumping on the screen, it just wigs out. I can close the app but the keyboard is stuck on the screen for several seconds until it finally crashes too. This makes it impossible to complete the emergency plan and makes the app virtually useless.
