Tornado: American Red Cross app reviews

  • Bad monitoring 1/5

    By irritated weather monitor
    After two times writing in that they are monitoring my location wrong they still haven’t fixed it. They are confusing my county with a city with the same name as the county. My location services are on and they are still messing it up. Nothing like having a tornado warning at 2am and waking up the whole house to find out it wasn’t even in my county!
  • Nation wide storm chasers 5/5

    By nation wide storm chasers
    Great app to have I’ve yet to have problems, I’m a storm chaser/ over the road truck driver so it’s helpful I highly recommend it, it also helps me with alerts so I can put them on my Facebook page witch is called nation wide storm chasers
  • Interesting to use 5/5

    By Loganleah
    My alarms go off and I like the shelter locations.
  • Great 5/5

    By Snook37448
    Have yet to actually put this through it’s paces in regards to how fast and accurate the notifications are but will update once we move to tornado alley next month. Everything else works great!
  • Great App 5/5

    By Worduppp!
    I have found this app very useful this past spring and into the summer! Very user friendly. This is an app you shouldn't be with out.
  • This is great! 5/5

    By TornadoReviews101
    I tested this tornado app because I review radars, and it worked perfectly! I could easily figure out tornado warnings in my hometown. Highly recommend this app.
  • Fix ap so as to delete all alerts 1/5

    By Worrywart108
    Why can i only delete current alerts and not older ones. I probably have 50 old alerts clogging up space on my phone please update this ap so that ALL alerts can be removed and dont send 404 error when we ask for support
  • If I could give 10 stars I would 5/5

    By Bellawhales1970
    I love the fact that I can send a active pic to my daughters. One is a nurse in Columbus Ohio and they just got over a thunderstorm warning... so I sent it to her... she will finally DL the app. Now my 22 yr old daughter who goes to college in the Dayton, Ohio area ... now they have the thunderstorm warning. The last tornado warning we had in Dubuque Iowa it did not go off and on Facebook our News KWWL let's us know we have no local news.. so they are the closet... they had a map up and in small letters it said tornado warning! I have one senior Doxie that I put into a clothes Basket.... and we have a cellar so you open the door from the floor and I get her down then we have to Guiana Pigs to catch in put in carrier. We built the cage so it's as long as the sofa so yep! Last week it did Not happen... as my 27 yr old is texting me "SOS mum basement... we have bluffs on both sides. It's a super app letting us know. *Bellawhales* and check out "The Dolphin Project and watch these two documentaries "The Cove" and "BlackFish" Don't buy a ticket to a dolphin and whale parks. Watch The Cove then you will see why. You can buy that movie on Amazon used for like a 1.00 and 3.99 shipping. #Seashepherd4Life
  • Alerts you before the weather man 5/5

    By Jimmy jack Joe
    This app notified me of a tornado warning in my hometown although I don't live there anymore. My family was watching the news during the storms, but somehow I knew there was a warning before them because of this app. It works.

    By Shdkwujsjx
    Great app! For me the alerts work but the sliders are by far the least user friendly adjustment system I have ever used. It took me thirty minutes to put the radius on ten miles.
  • Boo 1/5

    By Dfwcodeblue
    Will not load. No longer dependable as it once was. What happened to this app?!?
  • Like 5/5

    By Xxxxxxxxx xxxxxxxx cxx
    Great app, easy to use...
  • Missed a major alert 1/5

    By Valiance
    So yesterday evening, we had a major thunderstorm with 40-50 mph winds and this app gave no alert. Nothing. We were looking for the tornado, the winds were so high. The trees were leaning over etc. so...where was THAT weather alert?!!!! Homer, Ga. 5/20/17. Yes, that town is my my alert list. I get alerts for my other cities all the time, but this was a major miss.
  • Way too slow 1/5

    By Prosehill17
    The tornado alert from this app is still going off 30 minutes after the all clear has been given. Give me a break. The skies are blue again.
  • Alerts aren't showing up anymore 1/5

    By lanek3
    Alerts aren't showing up anymore in potentially dangerous situations... please get this fixed!! I rely on the app...
  • Awful app 1/5

    By Wine4jen
    Stopped working again scary that we are expected to rely on this in an emergency event!
  • Alerts feature failed 1/5

    By Riskster
    This app has become unstable and drastically degraded since iOS 9 upgrade. Needs an upgrade immediately. Alerts are announced but the alerts functionality in the app fails consistently when you go into the app.
  • Never gives alert for my location 1/5

    By rioinwa
    I can't even contact through contact us. I get alerts for everywhere except the county I reside in. It has my location correct, however it cannot send me alerts for my area. Everyday we have severe weather it will send me alerts for completely different county. Before you say your county may be listed further in the alert, it is not. I have taken multiple screen shots to send to the developer as proof but Tried to let the developer know my using the contact us and the "send" option is disabled. Which tells me they are aware there is an issue and do not care to resolve that issue.
  • Great when it worked. 1/5

    By Cyclegoddess
    I liked this app when I first installed it a few years ago, but it has stopped working. It no longer alerts me and I can't find a way to fix it.
  • Delete App, REinstall 5/5

    By Rubinjane
    I too had not had any alerts of any kind for several weeks. Just like other apps that stop functioning occasionally, if you uninstall and delete it, when you reinstall it is with all the new bug fixes included, instead of trying to fix an app you have already. This should help, I know with the latest apple ios I have had to do this to a few more than is normal recently. I also downloaded the Red Cross "Emergency" app as well for a backup to this one.
  • Used to be great 2/5

    By upset wasted my last $
    Now it alerts me for warnings nowhere near me and has me panicked before I realize it isnt this area. Checked my settings and area. Please update.
  • Not reliable anymore! Please fix! 1/5

    By Martita14
    Usually a great app, but sound alarms for tornado watches did not go off today. Only sounded alarm for tornado warning. Used to work great. Need to find a reliable app or go buy a weather radio. The radio never failed! Also could not leave them a message about this.
  • ...didn't work 1/5

    By Scg918
    Just downloaded so that I could prepare for a day of potential severe weather. Gave me a severe t-storm watch, but never updated (30 min and counting) when a tornado watch for all of my selected alert areas was issued. Getting a different app. Bummed this free one doesn't work.
  • Concerned mom 1/5

    By St555ar
    I no longer get sound alerts either! This app was so valuable! I would even pay for it if it was fixed
  • Moview 1/5

    By Moview
    Can't set preferences with this version. It used to be a better app. but could still be good with some adjustments. If not fixed soon during this spring's storm season I'll just delete it.
  • Used to be great/ now won't alert me 1/5

    By Espyetta
    This app used to work great but now it doesn't sound Off or give an alerts. I can see past alerts visually later after the fact but that does no good and even those are not a complete list of the severe t storms and tornado warnings we just recently had... this app did nothing. I will delete it if not fixed. Then at least I won't be counting on it to help me know when danger is in the area.
  • No Alert anymore 1/5

    By 2012Qwerty
    My family just slept thru a tornado warning. No sound alerts anymore. App is useless to us now. I've heard good things about the NOAA app and storms app. Need one that will wake us if there's a tornado.
  • Tornado App is great 5/5

    By MommaG45
    This App works!
  • Won't alert me anymore 2/5

    By Vsmith1963
    I have always used this app and relied on it however the sound to quit working and it doesn't alert me any longer to get this fixed because I really rely on this during the spring because I live in tornado alley and it would always wake me up if something was near but now I'm getting nothing. Can you please get this fixed it's the only way I have of knowing the weather
  • Goes off too much!! 1/5

    By Not quite a fan yet
    Okay, I have this set for my County and it goes off for counties WAY off away from us. I wouldn't mind if the county was close by. I even put the radius to a small area and it still does this. Scares the crap out of me at every warning. It USE to work right. PLEASE FIX THIS!!!! Ugh!!
  • Alerts aren't working anymore 1/5

    By (Me)()
    This app has been great for me the past. I live in tornado alley, and I've always relied on it. However in the past week, we've had two separate tornado watches issued for my location, and the app hasn't notified me with anything. No visual notification or sound notifications. Thankfully I have other apps to notify me of severe weather, but this one is the only one that would do a warning sound to notify you. That alone is the reason I've been using this app, because sometimes you need a big sound in the middle of the night to let you know to prepare for bad weather. Please please fix this. I haven't received sound notifications, or even visual notifications of the severe weather recently, and I need those notifications. If this issue can be resolved, I will gladly change my review to 5 stars, because I have loved this app in the past.
  • Great when it works 2/5

    By EaL26!28
    I love the ability to customize this app to get alerts in for weather on multiple areas or within a specific radius. It's woken me up in the middle of the night to warn me of a nearby tornado. What I don't love is that it often won't load the alerts. It just randomly fails, like it is right now as I'm sitting under a tornado watch. I can get alerts for one of my monitored areas but not my own because they won't load. This app is cool but don't depend on it for your safety because it fails so often.
  • Horrible. Unreliable 1/5

    By Ehram
    Tornado watch alert activated 6 hours after the time it was issued !!!
  • Essential App for Areas Affected 5/5

    By SW666
    This app alerts us before our local sirens blow. We rely on this as our area experiences tornadoes numerous times per year. Highly recommended.
  • Horrible 1/5

    By Zepman150
    I was woken up by our tornado sirens in our neighborhood this morning at 6:20am. Then three hours later the app decided to let me know that there was a warning issued three hours ago. Luckily there was no tornado but if there was this app was no use at all.
  • Wanted to love 1/5

    By Kysmum
    Really wanted to love this app but the alerts don't work (most important part IMO) and it's not very user-friendly. Deleted within 12 hours.
  • Useless 1/5

    By UsAndThem5150
    The app alerted me 5 hours too late this morning that there was a tornado warning. A lot of help that was. This app used to be good before the updates and now it doesn't work.
  • Incredibly unreliable 1/5

    By Chroma key
    Yeah this app ain't saving no lives. The alerts are completely unreliable. Sometimes it triggers alerts for you even though you're 100 miles+ away from the tornado zone. Other times it'll send you a warning alert 3 hours after the severe storm has passed. This is a dangerous app to rely on and should be banned due to how horribly it functions.
  • Warnings are late 1/5

    By Cedwards99
    Warnings were coming in 6 hours after they should've went off. The weather channel has better warnings.
  • Not happy, no sounds 1/5

    By Jdcd1966
    This worked a couple years ago when we had multiple tornado warnings one evening, but I haven't had sounds since. While sleeping, we had several tornado warnings. Fortunately, my son called me and better yet, we didn't have a tornado. This app is being deleted.
  • Fix Alerts 2/5

    By Dee Comcast
    The app is now useless since the alerts don't work and you can't even report the problem to there support people because that's down to
  • Great App 5/5

    By Persephone's Storm
    This app woke me up in the middle of the night to warn me of a tornado that touched down 1/2 mile from my house. I like how you can customize the size of the radius for warnings and add your family's address for alerts as well. Great app.
  • Unreliable 1/5

    By ssg3y
    Doesn't work anymore. Says "cannot load alerts". Can't add locations and didn't tell me when a warning was in effect for my area.
  • Would have given five stars... 3/5

    By Pandorica58
    I would have given this app five stars as it is a decent app. However, the alerts and alarm suddenly stopped. I live in an area at the time was under a particularly dangerous situation and needed the alerts and alarm.
  • Thankful for this app! 5/5

    By Kpc11478
    This is a great warning app. It has been extremely helpful at alerting us when we are asleep if there is a warning. The alert is very loud and can't miss it! Thank you.
  • Get an alert? Don't click it. 2/5

    By Dillpick88
    Pressing alerts makes a never ending popup come on screen. Won't load.
  • Inaccurate & Unreliable 2/5

    By ClimbHigh6
    The old app was great... literally was the only warning we received for a destructive tornado that touched down in our community in October 2014. Current app sounds the Tornado Warning siren for warnings posted 75-100 miles away and not even remotely headed our way. My radius is set to 25-miles so I'm certain it isn't how I'm setup.
  • No notifications and no response 1/5

    By P3T3R0
    I used to like this app, however it just stopped working. No response from Red Cross to my emails.
  • Nice but... 2/5

    By Heatmiser73
    Tells me of a tornado warning near Waco but fails to load info.
  • Great! 5/5

    By AaahsLiving
    Easy to setup. Warns us 1st for tornadoes. You can set the mileage for any area you want monitored & for exactly what events you desire for alerts. Multiple areas may be monitored. We really appreciate having this app because we live in a remote area & can pinpoint the area & mileage surrounding us we want monitored. Sound Alerts: Great, specifically for the radius you set. No preset Alerts, Notifications, etc. All within your control.
