August 24, 2016 Tornado hits Kokomo Indiana. I was only 50 yards away when it turned East.
Recommend for everyone! I love this app! I was at a friend's house and all of a sudden a tornado siren went off on my phone. It was letting me know a warning was issued for the area I was in. We had no idea because we weren't watching TV or listening to the radio. It also lets you add places and contact info for loved ones in other places.
App Name Deceiving The app works great. However, when there is an alert notification and I swipe down to view it, the first thing I see is "TORNADO Alert." So, in the middle of the night when it wakes me up it makes me panic thinking I am in imminent danger of a Tornado. I live in Tornado Alley, so it is a real fear and definitely anxiety inducing, especially when that is the first thing that pops up when there is an alert.
Please fix! When I first downloaded this app, it worked great. But now, it never alerts me even though I have several locations on alert and have push notifications turned on. The weather channel alerted me of a tornado watch issued in my are and I have been checking the ARC tornado app for nearly ten minutes and it still has not alerted me of anything.
Alerts won't load. I loved this app in the beginning. However, I can no longer look at the warnings in the app. I get the notification and can read it when I click on my phone notifications. But when I open the app it says there was an error and to check Internet connection. Very annoying. It always sometimes warns me hours after the threat is gone.
Ugh...Disgusted to say the least!!! The app gives out warnings but not where it is needed which is my location. Said we were under tornado warning but guess what...the warned area was over 200 miles away and the storm that produced the warning was headed into Southern Georgia NOT North Alabama!!!!
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.
When all you care to know about the weather is if it's about to kill you or not.
