Great app but..... This app is great but it's lacking in one vital area so I've only given it 4 stars instead of 5. It's allows you to set up your individual, specific watch/alert areas which is awesome if your a property owner or farmer etc. It's one failing is that the information is not shareable on social media or even by email, so I use this in conjunction with other emergency apps which are. This is the only app that allows you to pinpoint areas for continual monitoring.
Good idea. Data is rubbish. Get so many warnings of dangerously high winds and possible flooding which always turn out to be a slight breeze and some drizzle. Ever heard of the boy that cried wolf? App is a great idea but useless with this data source.
GPS NOT ACCURATE The gps location is not always accurate. I have a gps test app that is 100% accurate everytime, this app can put my location up to 20km away. Also needs option for manual entry of location - during storms gps lock isn't always easy to acquire or accurate. Manual entry of location would make this a terrific asset to storm chasers such as myself.
Need to be able to filter out total fire bans... don't need to be constantly updated on these when nothing else is happening. Even if they were a lower level of alert so they show up but don't alarm. Otherwise great app - well done!
Very good. I like this. A lot. Takes a bit of setting up but once done it doesn't fail to alert. Setting watchzones a bit tricky, would be better if you could choose suburbs i think, not sure, but multiple alerts in one zone a bit annoying. A must in bushfire prone areas. All in all recommended. 👍
Great app. The best emergency app there is and I've tried most of them. Just dont do what others are doing and release buggy updates right at the start of the fire season. Keep it the great app it is and I'll keep it at 5 stars. * There is nothing wrong that I can complain about so no need to add useless features or change colors and screw everything up. :) * just uninstalled Vic Fires as its gone to crap. Please dont update to a crap version as the way it is now is perfect. Keep it like it is and ill keep it at 5 stars. Dont fix whats not broken. * * * receiving no notifications. Do a test always crashes the app on multiple devices. Desperately need to fix notifications.
