Horrible adds The app does give you good weather alarms, I'll tell you that. But when u open the app there are several fishy ads like "phone is slow?click here to clean your phone" or "search here for singles in your area". I'm uninstalling this app bc I'm afraid I might accidentally click on those fishy links. there are several other apps that have same good service and are not laying fishy links in front of you to touch on your screen accidentally.
Wanted to give it a 5 I really liked how I could set my preferences with this app, I also like how I could set timers for how long it will look for weather alerts so I can conserve battery, but I agree with one of the users who mentioned that it would be nicer if you could monitor just one more place. Everyone should at least just check this out, as it also has alerts for volcanoes, surfers and all kinds of crazy stuff. Especially impressed with the earthquake alert which have been a problem in Texas. Hope it works!
Beats tornado sirens The last 2 summers when tornado sirens have gone off, this app gave me a 2-5min headstart. I don't know why it takes local enforcement so long to react to NWS statement but this app is FAST. I live in northern Ohio, so not only do we get tornadoes we also get severe winter weather. This winter it has been on point with updates from NWS concerning arctic fronts, freezing rain and everything else. This is THE weather alert app.
Location, location, location Update: lowered from two to one star because this app never alerts for our location, only those no where near us. It is worthless and will be deleted. Why ask for location settings with zip codes when your alerts pay no attention to the zip code you selected? Great idea but falls far short of basic expectations
Would Have Given It A 5, Except... ...for the types of ads displayed. DO NOT PAY ANY ATTENTION TO THE ADS THAT WARN YOU THAT YOU'RE RUNNING OUT OF MEMORY, STORAGE SPACE, OR HAVE A VIRUS, IT ISN'T TRUE! - It's a shame that some developers are so greedy that they sell ad space to the highest bidders, without regard to the unnecessary damage they could end up causing users that might would buy the pay version otherwise. I am all for making money, but have just a shred of personal responsibility to others while you're doing it...
Works the best of all tried, Excellent! ICS, jb, kk, L works on Asus infinity tab, moto g, moto x, Samsung s4. Other weather apps warn but they aren't all that accurate. Sorry but w/severe weather those other apps just not good enough. This app has been 100% spot on. 5 warnings watches today alone, awesome app!
This is a patch to stop alerts you have already seen from repeatedly notifying you. This is mainly a problem for KitKat users. In order to stop the alert from notifying again, you must tap the notification (view the alert) instead of just clearing it off the status bar.
