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.
This app could be very useful, except that it consistently sends multiple alerts, often a dozen or more within a short time. This excess makes the app ineffective, since at some point you just ignore it; or worse, turn it off to stop the endless deluge of redundant messages. I would like to have the access to the information, but I have had to remove the app.
This is ok but what I was really looking for is something that will make my phone go off when there's a severe weather alert in my area. This notifies me but it doesn't make any sound. I don't have the built in thing :/
I like it so far. Would love to see the inclusion of earthquake, volcano, and tsunami information (evacuation routes) in a future update. Surprising lack of good apps for this stuff.
Locations need to be more granular than counties because something an hour away may not affect me. Also needs to follow my location in case I'm not in one of the five areas we can choose
Works fantastic. Alerts come in quicker than any other apps (without all the ads and other unnecessary forecast info) as well as alerts posted on the NWS website and local tv broadcasts. However, one annoying drawback that I hope is fixed soon, is no option to select what alerts you want to receive. Its super obnoxious to get notified constantly of warnings, watches, etc, being cancelled or ending especially if you have multiple counties selected. If this becomes an option, itll be the best weather/emergency alert app available if you're wanting just that and nothing else. I still give it 5 stars even though I've wanted to uninstall multiple times because it drives me crazy but it has potential.
I was having the same issues. Updated the App about an hour ago - seems to be working again.
