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.
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, but still an issue Pollong takes place at the specified intervals, but alerts are sometimes not picked up until the actual start time (i.e. Flash Flood Watch issued at 3:30PM does not appear until the start time of 7PM)
Developer responds! Just released an update tonight (2016-06-15) that fixes the updates. (Note to developer - please make this a configurable option under troubleshooting in case it is needed again.)
Fixed a problem with the NWS URL changing that was preventing access.
Storm Shield provides storm-based alerts like a NOAA Emergency Weather Radio.
