I used to absolutely LOVE this paid app. I relied on it heavily, especially since I work for my county emergency weather communications. But now (especially since the Nougat upgrade) it is not even close to being reliable - or functional for that matter. Even using the optional work around doesn't help indefinitely. I have to unclick the "ignore" status then reclick it. Only then it will work, but not for long. Emailing the developer results in returned email. Sad part is, there's not another app available that comes close to what this one did.
I've been using Simple Weather Alert for a few years and on quite a few different phones and it has never let me down. So I decided to purchase Pro Weather Alert before Long Track Tornado Season starts here in Oklahoma. And since I travel all over the state, I will highly benefit from having Pro Weather Alert installed.
I have loved this app for years, but now it never runs. We'll be having a storm and I'll think, hmmm, didn't hear from Pro Weather Alert. I open the app and see it hasn't updated in days! I've uninstalled and reinstalled countless times, but now I'm just sick of it.
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.
I have been a loyal user of Pro Weather Alert for years - no other app on the Play Store does what this app does. I live in St. Louis, which often has tornadoes and severe storms, so it's important to have a reliable app to monitor watches and warnings. Unfortunately, Pro Weather Alert has been anything but reliable lately. The alert service has been disabled for months, regardless of what I do to troubleshoot. It appears that the app hasn't been updated since June 2016...is it safe to assume that the app is dead?
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.
