Great app! Exactly what I was looking for! To be able to monitor wildfire, air quality and weather forecasts all in one app! Thank you! Oh, it would be great if you could add in AZ Highway Patrol like you have it for CA, but I can find that elsewhere. Would be nice, though. Love that your app works very quickly unlike many websites on these topics which are often very slow.

I wanted to like this. It has good source data, but it's all disaggregated across a bunch of menus. Too difficult to navigate and I don't know where to find different parts. I'd love to have an app that just has one map with layers that show perimeters, evacuation zones, containment info, etc. This unfortunately doesn't have that.

The evacuation zone info, I am looking into it.

I'd give the app a lot more stars if it didn't shut down almost every time I try to look at anything. Doesn't seem to matter which modality I select, the app stops working. When it _does_ work, it's very handy, but I can't rely on it and that's a deal breaker. I'll keep it installed for a while but will be shopping for a different app in the meantime.

Hi, can you please try reinstalling the app. An update was issued Version 2.7 October 14, 2021. Please contact us at davidgrossapps@gmail.com if the issue persists.

What's new

- Fix for crash when navigating throughout the app on poor network conditions or if navigating too quickly
- Additional fix for crash when loading maps due to map load race condition
- Fix for crash when tapping Map Tools popup on InciWeb Map view
- Removed duplicate Map Tools crosshair for WFIGS perimeters, and prevented this from potentially happening on other screens
- News section removed for now, being re-worked and may be re-introduced in the near future in a different way
