About this app

FlashAlert Messenger allows the public to view local news, and receive push notifications of emergency alerts from FlashAlert Newswire. You may use it as a stand-alone news viewer or link it to your FlashAlert Messenger account for emergency alert push notifications from the schools, police agencies or organizations you have selected.

Visit www.flashalert.net for more information.

If you are having trouble attaching your account to the app, please see this page:
http://www.flashalert.net/help/attach-button.html

If you get a message that you are not connected to the Internet, turn off your wifi and use the app on cellular service. Then turn wifi back on, and you should be able to work off either network. The problem seems to be a conflict between the app and an Android operating system upgrade. We are working on an update to the app, but it requires a rebuild from the ground up.

If you get a new phone, you must delete the old one and link the new one (the notifications are sent based on the phone ID token, not the phone number).

This app is not installed on my phone, yet I continue to get texts messages. I get about 10-20 messages every day. If I happen to update my phone, when it is updated I receive about 100 past texts, that were already deleted. No one seems to be able to fix it. Its hard to uninstall an app when you can't find it on your phone. This is so frustrating especially after reading other reviews, stating they don't get the texts alerts.

As stated by others, this app used to be effective, but is no longer allowing sending push notifications nor allowing me to update my phone. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app. I've tried to follow the online guide to attach/reattach my phone ... to absolutely no avail. It's very frustrating, since our local schools and emergency departments use FlashAlert. If would be so nice if the app were functional. I wish there were a way to easily ask for help with issues in the app.

This app used to work really well but now I don't get the push notifications, it won't link my phone and there isn't even the option to, it's like it's missing. It just gives me the message that no phone is linked to this app. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling and still not happening. I only get the emails which are not nearly as effective at giving me a heads up on what is happening. Hopefully they fix this and make it work like it used to.

What's new

v1.1.2 - Major rebuild of the app with a newer framework. Feature-wise, this should be fairly identical but this should resolve the network state detection problem that some people were experiencing. More material-themed now.
v1.1.3 - Fixed missing icon art. /facepalm
