Hazard settings Seems like a good idea. But WHY can I not change the amount of hazards i get notifications about apart from once when I first opened it. I just want to know about the big stuff when I ask, not get spammed everyday with non life threatening stuff I'm going to have to uninstall it and try again. :/ cant even turn notifications off in the settings!
The app that would annoy you to death I'm not the first to complain about multiple allerts from the app. And there's is no way to opt out these queries regarding some power outage - on some days I got 40+ of them. Who was so smart to word questions that way: "Are you affected?Do you have power? HOW on earth can I answer Y or N?! NO I'm not affected and YES I have it.... Is it supposed to be Y or N??
Keeps coming up with power outage alarms This has been going on for 2 days now! This is obviously a bug in their app but instead of turning it off they seem to just be replying to everybody's comments with the same answer. Fix it now or I will have no option but to uninstall. As I suspect will many others.
They seem to have fixed most of the crashing, but it's still a rubbish app. Even though I've turned off sound for notifications they're still making noise. Not to mention the annoyance of getting them every few hours for the same event. Also, the quizzes are extremely buggy (providing the wrong prompts for incorrect answers), and have some outright mistakes in them. I hope this isn't what they're going to be relying on in a real emergency.
Constant alerts about Power outage The app has asked me so many times today if I'm affected by a power outage. This doesn't really seem like a notification I was expecting from this app. Let me disable non immediate threat alerts like this. There's settings for other things like Earth quakes, but no notification settings for power outages.
Hazard app From someone who works in the emergency services. I have only just discovered this app and believe it is an essential tool in surviving a disaster situation. Great information ℹ on the need to know basics and an invaluable early warning system for loved ones who live elsewhere. Big thumbs up to the dezigner! A++++++++
