This could be a really useful app if they can make a couple of weeks in it. First change the name. This is not an app to help you manage your contacts. Instead it sends you emergency alerts, like "Tornado coming in from the south," or "fire over on elm street." Lots of people could benefit from this if they understood what it does. But the second improvement it needs is to offer a method for turning it off or adjusting the settings for things you personally need to know. I really don't need to know about every traffic tie-up in the entire city, especially when I am spending the day at home. Plus this is designed to override all muting options and all do not disturb options. This could be needed for a tornado warning but I get 4 or 5 alerts every day and so far none have been relevant to me.
Crashes almost every time I use it. Its only value is that it beeps when something happens so I know to go to another source if I actually need info
It would be nice to be able to group delete messages received. Apart from that the app does what I would expect.
This this new program sucks. I miss Nixle however I can't log into that anymore. I haven't gotten a single notice since installing this.
This is the worst app ever I deleted my account and uninstalled and it's still sending me text about a storm from Saturday 5/27/17. STOP NOW!!!!!
Using this for alerts is extremely helpful, but it also can receive *lots* of messages, especially traffic alerts. Most are not in my area, so I don't need to read them, but the app forces me to read them just to remove them from the Unread pane. Missing is a "Mark as Read" option, so I can simply browse the Unread list for those I wish to read, then clear the remaining ones. Alternatively, include a "swipe to remove" capability from the Unread pane. Most recent update has made it horribly slow to fill the message list.
Based on your feedback, we were able to make a few usability enhancements to the Local map.
