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.
No longer useful This used to be my most useful app but more recently the alert service keeps stopping on my device. I've been trying to contact the dev for over two weeks for help with no response. This paid app is now non functional for me.
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.
No longer compatible with android alert service is disabled, it's no longer compatible with the newest version of Android when I go into my application manager that is exactly what it says. Please update this application so it is. I rely, well relied, heavily on this application when I storm chase to get up to date information on severe weather.
My search is over! This is the one I have wanted since I got my Droid in Jan-2011. I travel all over the country and spend most of my day outside in remote areas. This app works! Pro version is totally worth the money. But be sure to sit down with it and read the manual so you get it properly configured for your situation. The latest update has alerts working again. Thank you, there are a lot of us who depend on this!
Fixed a problem with the NWS URL changing that was preventing access.
Storm Shield provides storm-based alerts like a NOAA Emergency Weather Radio.
