Show me the smoke! For some reason, the app only sometimes shows the smokey areas in North America. I can turn off/on the smoke setting. I can force close the app and restart. But nothing I do seems to make the smoke visible on occasion. I don't know why smoke is visible on occasion and sometimes not. Thank you to the developer for the smoke explanation. The explanation comports with my experience, but I changed my rating from 3 to 4 for the explanation. Solving the problem would earn a 5.

The smoke info is generally available in the afternoons after a NOAA technician publishes the data. This availability is a side effect of how NOAA publishes the data, and we hope to improve on this in a future update.

For the radius it shows me in the free version, I could walk out my front door and see further -- unless I want to fork over $9.99. To be clear, the map does not show ANY hotspots outside my immediate area, unless I pay up. And it still gives me ads! Terrible user experience. Uninstalling.

You've misunderstood. You can adjust the map to monitor any area you want in the free version. Please contact us if you want help.

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.
