Notifications don't work when you tap on them in drop down list & there's no indication if they contain urgent or just general info. Have to open app & tap on the bell to see details, but it's not clear which watch zone it relates to. Can't go to map view from 'details' section, so you basically need to know every small town in every watch zone to know what area it's about. Good points? App includes lots of different emergency situations, different sound options for type of warning would be nice

Love that I can set up a notification zone and measure how far away fires are from me BUT after installing this app I started to get a stupid alarm going off constantly to the point I thought my phone was having issues... got a new phone and after a few weeks downloaded this app again, within 15min this haunting alarm started up again and I realised what was going on! Such a great map system but would love the unnecessary alert sounds to piss off!

During the last 3 days of intense fires which started near Woorooloo, Western Australia, the map failed to get updated at all after the nightfall of day 1 (1st feb2021). There are black outlines indicating extreme danger eg the fire, and this did not move for the next 2 days, despite the fire spreading quite much further. This is extremely disappointing, given we are all dl this app to get the latest info, not a 3 day old map, showing outdated fire front. I got more information from scanner
