Review from A Google User
Good idea Not a bad app.. useful info even for us UK folks. The only pain is that the Android back button takes you to the main menu & you have to remember to use the back icon in the app.
Does what it says 100% Installed app an it alerted me to severe wx in my area instantly. No delay like tv an radio. I would recommend everyone have this on hand. One of the few Govt apps I support an endorse.
Provides weather alerts & preparedness to do Provides weather alerts, dust storms, thunderstorms, etc. It also provides preparedness/safety to do reminders, such as test your smoke alarm, etc. Seems to do what it is supposed to do

They can and should do better. I have other alert systems on my phone, I know about outbreaks, solar events, nuclear and other. With all the billions spent on hollow point bullets you'd think they could do better them my 14 year old kid, wait he could do way better then this so step up....Peace
5 smoke alarm reminders per week? It is was fine for a few months. Just had to uninstall it because it interrupts what I'm doing repeatedly and "breaks" my Bluetooth headset connection every time they send me another annoying reminder.
wide range of disasters covered This app helps you prepare for every imaginable disaster except zombies. The FEMA rep I heard on NPR said they hoped to add zombie preparedness to the list and I am anxiously awaiting this as an update.
The reminders are now turned off by default. To turn them on, go to Prepare > Reminders.
When all you care to know about the weather is if it's about to kill you or not.
