Death by Notification First of all, I want you clarify. This is actually a good app. Good information, good warnings, I do recommend it. However! It is absolutely horrendous on notifications. The same single floor warning will initiate a dozen buzzes on the phone, replicating the warning over and over as different warnings. If you have both Hurricane and Flood apps, you get twice that. They have to fix this!
Great App Downloaded for hurricane Matthew and working great. Will use always for emergencies. Great resources, tools and user friendly. For those complaining about too many notices/alerts, did you realize you can set each warning to either "Notification" or "Alert" or both? You have to set up, as default is for BOTH to be turned on. And if you have a "watch" AND a "warning" set, you'll end up with double the alerts as a watch is 36hrs out and a warning is 48hrs out; csusing overlap if you have them both on.
Alerts Alerts sent for same warning multiple times and in areas that don't have any relevance to my location or any I am tracking. Wanted hurricane alerts. Don't need flood alerts particularly for streams of no relevance. Would rate it higher if settings could be adjusted. Too many alerts for same warnings. Deleting this app.
To many alerts Sends to many alerts. One is enough, at least no more then once an hour. Also I don't need flood alerts or thunderstorm alerts on a hurricane app. I found that I can disable alerts. Such as not getting thunderstorm alerts on flood app or tornado app. Now I just received three alerts in less then a minute on same app for flooding... Make that 6! Really?!
Nice app but... I like alot of the features but the notifications are too much. You get 2 alerts for the same storm every couple of hours even though there is no change to the alert. There should be a way to disable or limit notification
Ridiculous. Years ago, I downloaded this app because of Hurricane Irene. It was helpful then. After all these years, Hermine makes an appearance and I am bombarded with several notifications every few hours!!! There is no way to turn them off either. I will be uninstalling this app
We heard some users were finding the grey font hard to read so we've now made it black
We know some of you use larger font sizes on your phone's so now we observe that too and make the alerts nice and big
Some of you reported a bug where our app was using too much space so we put the app on a little diet meaning you can have that space back.
Fixed a bug where deleting monitored locations would incorrectly report success when it wasn't. We recommend pulling down to refresh your locations.
