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!!!!
Best there is. Downloaded this app because of a recommendation from a Fire Cheif. Now everyone in my circle is using it. Gave us a "siren" alert before we even heard the ones in town go off. Alerted us quickly & kepted us updated. If you want to keep your family safe... Download this app.
