A bushfire is closing in and I get server errors!!! This confusing, poorly designed and developed app is going to cost lives. Show me where the actual bushfire is so I can make a decision to stay or go. For example no matter what filters you pick you still get alerts for somebody's tree falling down. Unless it's falling on me I don't want to see it.
Can't create a watch zone without a profile. Creating a profile goes to a white screen, with nothing in it. Can't log in with profile, it flashes a message when I try, but I can't read it in the millisecond it is visible. So, in simple terms, it is literally useless.
I do not get notifications on my phone since the last update despite re creating watch zone and checking all settings are correct multiple times
It consistently fails to allow the creation of a named watch zone and alerts for that area. I select the centre and range to be covered then go to enter a name. It won't accept anything, even the character counter doesn't change. I'll just listen to the ABC as this app could get someone maimed or killed.
2KM Watch Zone radius PLEASE!! 1km doesn't fully cover most local areas and 5km covers too many in the suburbs. This is a fantastic app, delivers an incredibly important service, amalgamated from many emergency types and services.
After last update, my watch zone disappeared. Coming into first run of hot weather, and can't reliably view the fire danger ratings for the next four days. I viewed it once, but now won't show the four days. Constantly get incident expired messages even if I immediately check when notified. Panning and zooming of maps is sometimes not responsive, or slow to respond if it does.
We've been working on some updates and fixes to improve VicEmergency app experience for Android devices.
Here's what's changed in recent updates:
• Display of fire danger ratings for your current location and watch zones
• Improved performance and reduced data usage
• Updated our base map to the latest Spatial Vision VicMap Book
• Miscellaneous bug fixes
