Not working! I have made sure notifications is activated in the phone setting but it still is telling me to activate it! How can such a crucial app be having issues right in the thick of fire season!!
needs to be simple. no zones just a sliding scale of what alerts to be made aware of depending on your location. maybe another area to setup multi zones.
Good start but More work needed. The watch zones should be customised by 1km increments. This would allow properties on town edge to avoid "alert fatigue". It seems that every time a truck is dispatched a notification is sent. The App is for fire notification not car accidents etc. It seems like a good idea, just in need of further development. The incident listing should be in some sort of order (alphabetical, by distance or by time)
Incomplete No chronological order. Inaccurate unit count. Conflicting advice. All this from first hand experience as of an hour before I rated this app. We were packed and ready to leave due to a grass fire out of control in high wind. The cops down the road were a better source of ACCURATE info...
So pathetic for such a critical app Please get some user experience consultants to help you understand just how frustrating and borderline useless this app is.
Awkward to use In general a useful app but it can be slow to respond to user input. It would be useful if I could set a custom notification sound so that I can tell when I am receiving an sms or a fire warning. It would also be good if the notification could be set to make a sound even when the phone is on silent (I put my phone on silent at night but should still get fire warnings).
What’s New in Version 4.0.4
Made the following improvements
· Fixed issue with display of Google maps
· Better handling of upgrades to new versions of Android, reducing the chances of losing previous configurations of watchzones and settings
· Changes to ensure that watchzones are correctly deleted
