Not happy I thought this would be a good app but I'm sick and tired of being peppered with alerts saying someone in my area has reported a power failure and asking if I am affected. Despite saying no, it still sends me alerts. I am uninstalling the app. Maybe in time after all bugs are ironed out I will look at it again.
Suggestion for improvement Change the way the alert areas work. If I set a radius of 20km I only want to know about things happening in that 20km radius. Not alerts that have been issued by civil defense almost 100km away but because the areas overlap I hear about everything.
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??
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.
