Great app One of the most useful apps on my phone. Simple and gets the job done! Notification icons are broken in Marshmallow though.. only a plain white square appears. And would be great to have alerts based on the NWS zone, not just county. Keep up the great work!
Best wx alert out there This is a wonderful no BS app with lots of useful features. The timing between the time the National Weather Service issues an alert and the time this app sends an alarm is just a matter of seconds. It's like having a weather alert radio in your pocket.

Latest update solved the problem! Thank you! UPDATE: App is 100% good and functional again... back to 5 stars! EARLIER POST: Says "error contacting NWS feed." Same problem as many posting here. Sent troubleshooting reports to developer.
Very helpful Extremely useful app. Great for notification of severe weather at any time. Keeps up with the sever storms. Also has a useful map showing the warning or watch areas. Very useful at night time to keep up with alerts when asleep because you can set it for emergency notification while sleeping.
Don't be ripped off. It SUCKS. LIES This app is an absolute joke period. after trying to contact someone, I have repeatedly been ignored. It will work fine for a few days. And then you will get a "unable to establish a contact with the National Weather Service feed, alerts may not be accurate." And then after that happens, good luck getting anybody to respond. And why should they? Their money has been made, and they can hide behind the anonymity of the internet. There are better apps out there.
Done. Constant problems with updating and 'network connectivity' This was a great app. Now having constant issues with either the app saying there is no network connectivity or the alert service is down. First time it was two weeks that the app hadn't checked for alerts. Now it is saying there is no network connectivity. Done screwing around with clearing cache and data just to have it work.
Fixed a problem with the NWS URL changing that was preventing access.
Storm Shield provides storm-based alerts like a NOAA Emergency Weather Radio.
