I really want to like this app. It has the fastest alerts after issued from nws in comparison to other apps. Being able to choose multiple locations is very helpful. However I'm still getting alerts for notices that I have turned off in the settings. Hope that can be addressed soon.

Have had this app for a long time, but haven't received any notifications in months even though I have them turned on in my settings. UPDATE 1/9/2024: I am now receiving notifications again, but only because I opened the app. I had the settings changed to where the permissions and notifications would be stopped if the app wasn't in use, so I would check these settings ahead of time if you haven't! I'm hoping this will fix the issue permanently.

Constantly sends alerts; today I got 50. This app experience is broken! They put a banner in the app saying it's because "your local authority" is making changes which causes it to realert you, but it DOES NOT MATTER WHAT THE EXCUSE IS the impact is constant alerts -- so what if the areas affected changed? I only care about the areas I'm subscribed to, that's the point of subscribing, so if some other area is added to the alert I DO NOT NEED ANOTHER ALERT FOR THAT.
