It's been a great app for a long time, but for the last few months all I see is "an error occurred updating the NEWS fed. Alerts may not be completely updated". If I could find a solution to this problem I'd give the app a great rating. It's definitely comforting to have when it's working. EDIT: Reinstalling fixed the issue. This is a great app.
Worked for a few years, but a chemical explosion happened 2 miles from my house and I didn't get a peep from the app. I opened it to find out why to realize the app hasn't been connecting for 4 months. Kinda a big deal to miss a chemical exposure that close to home. It appears others have been having similar connectivity issues.
I used to have this on my old Android and it was fantastic, but it won't work on my new phone. The troubleshooting didn't help and I just couldn't get it to connect to a server. Since I need this for tornado warnings I really need it to work. If it's no longer a working app it needs to be removed, it could be dangerous if someone relies on it and it fails.
As with other users, I had a great experience using this app. It does seem like there isn't any developer support because the connectivity is unreliable. However, it also appears Google updated the way Android reports network availability to apps. This app has some network sensing which no longer works and therefore believes it is always disconnected. In a highly connected cellular region there is always a connection, WiFi or otherwise. In Troubleshooting, enable Ignore Network Status. Once I did that, this valuable life saver came back to life for me.
I used to love this app! It has become so unreliable and cannot connect. I have tried data, wifi, troubleshooting mode, reinstalling... Nothing works. Seems like multiple people are having the same problems. The last update was a year ago so it sounds like nobody is listening.
Weather app I've had this for years and have had it on my past phones.. Although just recently I've had problems with the app, it only works when only data is on. I can't just use data only because that will use up all my data. I can't even get updates on Wi-Fi.
