Its okay, but in the middle of a wildfire emergency the information is just not current enough to be useful, and can even be misleading due to plumes of smoke causing heat readings where no fire is on the ground. Pulse Point is much better for immediate notification and location emergencies. Still, i keep Fireguard in my tool kit and bought the paid version so i can keep an eye on areas where my relatives live.

Testing this app for our area, Western Cape, South Africa. Unless I'm missing it, there doesn't seem to be a distance calculator directly on the app. Shows a distance when one taps on more info, however, I'm assuming is a distance of one's current location? Not to a specific location elsewhere? One can go to co-ords > Google earth. Is there a possibility for this to be developed still? The quality on mobile seems really good and it is showing accurately an active fire nearby.

You are correct⁠—the distance shown is the distance from the current location of your device. A point-to-point distance measure is something we'll consider for future development. Thanks for the feedback.

Bought the upgrade and the app freezes. The Hotspots update slower than 3 other free apps and web resources. As a free app this isn't bad but I'd like a refund on the upgrade. I needed trusty solution as the fires are right near my home in the Santa Cruz mountains so I paid in good faith that it was stable. Update: The developer reached out and refunded me. This tool has an easy to use map and well designed UI. Maybe is issue was with my phone. Samsung s9.
