I used to love this app so, so much. Being able to set up alerts across multiple states was really useful to me, as I lived in Victoria but the family home was in South Australia, so having one app handle everything was magic... Until my phone updated to Nougat, that is. Now I don't get any notifications at all. I have exempt the app from being put to sleep, I've given it all the permissions it needs to be sending me notifications, but I get nothing. There's not even a single alert in South Australia when I browse the map - I find it very hard to believe that the whole state is without some kind of emergency, somewhere! Emergency AUS and I are now parting ways, unfortunately.
Awesome app I was glued to this app during a major bushfire event earlier this year. The info was accurate and really helped inform our decision-making (like when to evacuate etc). I really liked being able to set up a watch zone around my local area. Best emergency app, I can't recommend it highly enough!
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.
Annoying or useless This app forces us to choose between being pestered with multiple alerts one after another for the same incident, or turning notifications off rendering the app useless. The same reason I dumped other apps. Filter the incident alerts FFS or give us the ability to. If the only choice is being spammed with useless alerts or nothing, then I'll choose nothing and dump your app too.
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.
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.
