Previously used this app on a Samsung Galaxy and it worked very well. Received all alerts that I subscribed to including sound. Have recently upgraded phone to a Huawei P8 Lite. Have reset all alerts etc but am not getting any notifications. Will be uninstalling if I cannot find a fix. Uninstalled and then reinstalled app, adjusted alert settings and it has kicked back into life. Great app for keeping in the know on major events and weather alerts.
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??
Really want a app that can wake me up in the middle of the night even when I have sound turned off. Google already has a system in place that can do exactly this which I believe you will be implementing later on this year Update: - thanks for replying to my review. That's good to here as Apps are not given the necessary administrative authority (root acess) to override some system settings. But Google does. I look forward to any news on the subject. Also I would be willing to be a tester on the system and have already enabled "Emergency alert / test broadcasts" on my Huawei y6, Android 5.1
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!
A little slow, but still a very thorough and useful application. UPDATE: Although the app is receiving alerts, it has recently stopped notifying me of them or sounding an alarm, (both sound and notifications are turned on). ISSUE RESOLVED: A start-up Manager app was blocking push notifications, all good now thanks.
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.
Chained Crowdsourcing feature updated.
Users can report a hazard nearby through the maps tab.
This helps to map the effects of a disaster by crowdsourcing reports from people on the ground.
