Note: I used the OLD version for about 7yrs with ZERO issues. The June 8 '22 update is a great example how change may not be an improvement. The update has made a great app nearly useless. Old: you could monitor 10 locations, maybe more. Now it's <5. Old: you had a map with a circle around locations. Now: a map of highlighted counties. Seeing a list of counties for a state you've never set foot in is useless. Also: you could view all alerts for an area. Now: just the newest, not most relevant.

Like most people already mentioned, the new update seems to be broken. For me, I don't get the sound notifications anymore. If I look at my phone it still shows the notifications, but when I click on them individually it keeps bringing up the first notification in the list. Not sure why, but without the sounds it's a little pointless now.

Liked the previous version better. In this one it seems most of the customization has gone away. Your contacts and who you're monitoring is gone, you can't select your monitor areas, seems like it's more general geographical areas instead of specific locations (i.e. instead of a specific location, you get a county, which would probably work for most cases.)
