Useless App...Use the news 1/5
This is joke, right?
Terrible login mechanism. Needs a year of work. 1/5
By Alex from Costa Rica
You can log in all day at the web site, reset passwords, change anything. Here not only do your passwords not work, your email doesn't, and any attempt to get them to match only creates duplicates that ALSO don't work because you are already registered, right? This app needs to be taken down until it's ready for production. Save yourself some trouble and text subscribe to Nixle.
Horrible app 1/5
By Disappointed User83738
I could write a novel how bad this app is, too much to list & a waste of time.
Don't bother 1/5
Extremely pointless. I might as well just predict everything by peeking out the door. Good idea but whoever designed it should be fired.
Not User Friendly 1/5
Can't even create login account
Not dependable in any way 1/5
Not worth yo r time
By USMC Mom
Horrible.... Says there are alerts but you can't see them.... didn't realize it was a paid app.... piece of junk....
Great app!! 5/5
Trustworthy and quick. I really have a peace of mind with this downloaded on my phone.
This app is a joke, right? 1/5
1-Star because I can't give it a minus 5 stars. 28 active alerts made me cringe until I realized it was for the whole US. Guess what, the alert in my area, according the code red website, is not even listed on this app. Call me when you have hired some 4th graders to fix your app.
By Keno Queen
After loading this I realized have to pay yearly - no way when you can get free elsewhere- sorry I wasted my time.
Worthless App 1/5
I had a fire not even 10 miles from my home and nothing. No alert. Didn't even show up on the map. Then there were 10 new fires in Carson City, and yep you guessed it, NOTHING. They need negative stars. Waste of money and time.
Not sure 2/5
Not really sure about this app. It says I have 27 active alerts but I can't see what they are. I have tried to click on the bottom button but nothing comes up. May delete.
Separate registrations 3/5
You have to register separate logins for mobile and desktop. Would be nice to just have one login for both.
I haven't had the opportunity to get notifications yet is reason for only 3 stars
Wasted My Money! 1/5
When I try to enter settings I always get an error message. I have all kinds of alerts set up but I never get any alerts although my local news forecast are running alerts across the screen. Waste Of Money!!!
Gentler sound alert needed 4/5
By Ear row tated
Please add a gentle chime or similar as a sound alert option. Currently available sounds are overwhelming.
Just under severe storm warning 2/5
And it doesn't do anything! Been that way for a month
Love the real-time local alert notices 5/5
I use and love this app. It shows real time issues, like when a tree was down in town and certain streets were blocked, etc. and just now, our local 911 center's major phone line to their center went down & the new alert gave a local phone number to call till 7pm tonight.... I still haven't received a message from our local EMS Facebook page letting us know about the issue.
It will search up to a 25 mile radius of where you are, when you set your phone for that app to use your location, even when you aren't using it right then :-)
It has been a great app !!!
No Credit for Subscription Renewal 1/5
I also renewed my subscription and the app still says it has expired. Have waited several days, signed out and in, rebooted and so forth. Emailed tech support and they said to send them a screen copy of my renewal receipt. Uhh...didn't get a receipt. Won't be renewing again.
Bugs?? Not happy w/app 1/5
By not a happy app camper
I have been getting a significant amount of code alerts however I have no idea what the alert is about or where it is. This app gives me nothing to go on.
I wanted to be alerted to the fire danger at our other property. App only works for your current location and a radius around that. Also does not support fire danger. Disappointing
Major buggy 2/5
It does generate alerts, but it has major bugs. I have the alert radius set for 10 miles but get alerts from places over 40 miles away. I also can't change the really annoying alert sound. I contacted support on this, and they said to log out and log back in to effect the change. Didn't work. It would be valuable if it worked right, but it doesn't.
This update does not recognize my paid subscription 1/5
My subscription was renewed and is valid now and for a number of months hence. Your update now says it expired. Please fix this. I will not pay you TWICE. Thx
Locked Up Already After Just A Few Hours 1/5
I live very close to the Goodwin fire in AZ. I only had the app for a few hours and it locked up. Now what?! That was a waste of money.
Too much abuse 1/5
Seems like a nice idea but the problem is that every agency marks everything they want to alert to as an "emergency." So when you have missing person alerts disabled you'll still get the full blown emergency alert for some one reported missing on the other side of the state. There are multiple options those issuing the alert can choose, making everything highest priority makes the app useless.
Took My Money But No Service 1/5
Title says it all. Tells me I need to renew. I did. No service. Try to renew again and I'm unable to because I already have. What a rip.
WORST APP EVER!!!! 1/5
I get alerts from everyone except code red. And always experiencing network or server problems. What could be an AMAZING AND LIFE SAVING APP IS NOT.
Too many test alerts during the day. 1/5
App sends out multiple alerts during the day. All of which are TEST alerts. I'd understand 1 test alerts a day. However, 3-4 of them a day are quite annoying. So much so that I'm deleting the app. Great idea but still needs work.
Waste of space and battery 1/5
Consistently shows multiple alerts, without any detail of what those alerts are. Goes off multiple times a day with the only alert showing that it is a required test of the system. Has the potential to be a great app, but needs a lot of work to get there.
No Details in Notifications 2/5
Receive notifications but no explanations. Needs updated but dev won't do it.
Not worth the drain on your battery 1/5
I would have loved to give this app a 5 star rating, but sadly, no.
In order for it to work, you must provide personal information and allow it to track your every move 24/7. If you disable the GPS it says, "Error. User has denied to use current location."
When you set up the app you are allowed to show a radius where you would like to monitor for alerts. It should not matter where you are at the precise time an event occurs. If you are away from home, you still want to be notified if there is an emergency situation around your home.
99.999999% of the time the top of the app will display "17 current alerts," but they are 3000 miles from your home.
This app bills itself as a great alert system should anything happen in your area, whether it be in the radius you set up when you programmed the app or in the area that your person is located.
In order for the app to function, you must allow it total access to your location at all times. This also drains your phone's battery quickly.
It's a good theory, but in practical matters it fails miserably.
Doesn't work 1/5
It doesn't even allow me to log in. Nothing but error messages. I'm deleting this app now.
Great concept but fix the issues 1/5
I also can't login after registering. And it tells me there are 25+ warnings or alerts, but can't find out what they are. Not useful at all.
Good idea but isn't working 1/5
I receive alerts but can never find any details. App says there are 37 alerts in my area but no details can be found ... which makes it pretty useless.
Doesn't work 1/5
By What is the problem??
Alert radius settings don't work, I was getting alerts for events well outside of my set radius. When the alert sounds (and believe me, you can't miss it) and you try to open the app from the alert notification it crashes every time.
Error Message 1/5
I have downloaded this app 3 times, stubborn I guess. When I attempt to use it, all I get is an error message. It is a useless app, so don't waste your time. Hopefully something better will be available soon.
Useless - inability to login makes app useless 1/5
Unable to login due to app error rendering the app useless.
No clue provided to indicate why or if this is a known issue.
Several other reviews already staying this.
Feels like another company running out of the garage that can't keep up with initial success.
Can't sign in worthless! 1/5
Tornado warning 5/5
By Texas trip
Attending a business meeting in Texas and received a tornado warning. No sirens or other alerts in the hotel. I delayed my meeting until the storm passed. Well done. Thanks!
Constant GPS use kills your phone 2/5
The concept is a good one. But the implementation of that concept in this app leaves a lot to be desired. To work as designed, it needs to know your geolocation constantly, which means it's using your GPS *constantly*, draining your phone's battery in record time. That was my experience, the very first day I installed it (yesterday), and I deleted it last night. What good is an emergency app if it kills your phone so fast that you wont get the notifications anyway??
Alert sounds are horrible 1/5
There is no way I want to be alerted by those horrible choices of sounds. I'll keep myself informed some other way that doesn't give me a headache. Ugh.
Can't Log In 1/5
The app is pointless. I can't log in and I can see that there are alerts, but I can't see what they are. Don't waste your time.
Updated version hasn't fixed the ongoing issues 2/5
I still can't login to the app. It used to work when it was first launched but it's fussy and hard to use (I am a techy). Feels like no one is supporting this app and I can't tell if the new version is working because I still can't login. Many others can't login either.
This app is supposed to provide notifications in time of emergency. I'd hate to rely on this app in the event of a wildfire, tornado or flood. Don't waste your money.
Viewing Alerts 3/5
When you view the map it will have a red dot with the listed number of alerts. You have to tap on the alert number. Then you will have to tap a "Red Cross" sign. After, a bubble with "emergency" will pop up and next to "emergency" it will have a circled "i" click on the "i" to view the actual info for the alert.
I did not have to sign up. I simply downloaded and skipped all options.
The location options are only: never or always.
I've had maybe 2 minutes with this app so I can't really rate it. I have not experienced an alert, yet. I just wanted to respond to the other comments that said you couldn't few the alert. (Note: I did not have to pay $0.99 to view the alerts)
Terrible app! 1/5
This app has a renew subscription option and it doesn't say it's .99 cents until you click to approve. I hit the home to get out and it charged me the .99 because it registered my fingerprint. This app says how many alerts are nearby but will not load what they are. All I want is a text when there are parking bans in dorchester and I can't get them when I need them because the distance limit is 25 miles.
Poor design, no texts were available for me because the "settings" button just spins and says "loading".
No tech support 1/5
Like many other users, having trouble. Created account on website with username/ password. App wants email address/password & won't accept info entered on website. App gives error message "...If this problem persists, contact customer support. Error: -2" but neither app or website say HOW to contact customer support.
Registration is Terrible 3/5
I registered through a home computer, setup login name and password and now app on phone requires login with email address and doesn't accept previous registration. Sorry not registering twice and you don't need my email address. Not a very good app and is was recommended by local emergency services.
Terrible App! 1/5
Waste of time! Alerts do not load, and are not accurate even after customization to my area! Plus you have to Pay after a "trial period".
Will not log on with phone app. Can log on from PC. But after reading the reviews I'm not alone. It's sad when something is suppose to help alert you for your safety and it is not functional. Wonder what us tax payers had to pay for this useless tool?
No way to shut off alerts 1/5
This has gone off 3 times starting at 6:30 in the am on a Sunday and there is no option to just get an alert without sound so you can wait until you're awake to read it.
So far mixed results 1/5
By Medic 5
Up dated 01/09/2017
To date never has alerted of weather emergency as advertised. It is allowed to track use data and everything else double checked. Will not renew paid services.
So easy to navigate. I have had a warning that worked as advertised. Tonight have storms and app not working. Says can not load user settings. Not able to find app help yet! Spent time looking for help too find none. App support link shows web site with no support.
Uninstalled and reloaded now working.
