iOS update. App is great 5/5
The best app and it is back with an iOS 11 update
HASN’T BEEN UPDATED IN TWO YEARS 1/5
I used this app as my #1 go to. Now it won’t work on my phone at all due to not being updated. Have emailed company but no word as of yet. Would have been a 5 star but now only 1..... 😢
Upgrade please 2/5
Keep telling me it wont work will iphone up grade 11.0. Wish you could fix it.
No update, no good review until then!! 2/5
Wasted good money on an app they won’t keep current
Don't waste your money!!!! 1/5
This was my gold standard for weather alerts and apps. However, I have emailed the developer several times about the timing of the update. Unfortunately, I'm not really getting any good answers. Will rate as 1 for the poor customer service; otherwise when the app worked; it was a 5.
Please update app for iOS 11 1/5
Used to be 5 STARS, but it’s useless on iOS 11. PLEASE update!!
App update 2/5
By NASCAR & Joe Gibbs
This app used to work fine, but now that apple has come out with an update 11.0.1 it won’t work as it slows down my phone. Please send out an update.
Please Update 1/5
Whenever I use the app, Apple sends me a notice that app may not be supported with IOS 11.
Needs an update 1/5
This app won’t work with IOS 11
Abandon app 1/5
This app was the gold standard, but it does not work anymore. Last update 2014. I think the developers have abandoned it.
This app is very useful and can save your life.
Rip off 1/5
I would rate this 0 stars if they're was an option, have to pay $9.99 for weather and other alerts, it's useless.
Unless you upgrade for $9.99, you can't get any weather alerts. The free version is useless.
Not much unless you pay 999 1/5
Not much without paying 999
Waste of money and not dependable. 1/5
By 👑diva girl 👑
Don't waste your money. Find another app. It's not worth what I had to pay at all. The app never sends me alerts or anything. It is really annoying and not dependable.
Love this app 5/5
This app is awesome loved while I travel
Won't wake you up 1/5
This app will not wake you up at night in do not disturb or silent mode. Should mention this in description. Wasted $10 !

This app is really helpful because I live in tornado alley
Brought last spring was very happy with it. Till somehow it deleted itself off my phone, and now won't let me restore what I paid for. Tells me that my password is wrong but if I go to re buy it my password works fine!!! Very unhappy
Volume too low 3/5
Installed a few days ago. There have been no severe storms since install, but can already tell from the test notification alert volume (with phone sound volume set to max) that there is no way this would wake me up should a real storm come through while asleep. Needs a louder notification sound to be useful.
Needs an EAS Test Option 3/5
By Ivan R. Loock
Annoying as Emergency Alert System tests are, the OPTION to enable receipt of EAS tests should at least be available. Otherwise, how would one ever know that the App is truly enabled, working, and most importantly of all, "listening?" Also, sometimes the Emergency Alert System is utilized in emergency preparedness drills, sanctioned by National, state and local emergency management agencies. As such, some EAS tests are used in conjunction with sanctioned drills. Hence, being able to enable the App to "listen" for EAS test broadcasts would be of great help to such coordinated drill efforts. As the App currently functions, no such feature exists. It is therefore, difficult to place any real degree of trust in the App, especially for the price of the required, "in-App purchases." Otherwise, the App at least APPEARS to be useful.

Will cost more 4/5
While it is a good app, it will cost you $10 or more to unlock all of the features in the app
Just wrong. 1/5
By Fix it please ...
It is dishonorable to charge such fees for the simple concept of trying to ensure people's safety in natural disasters. I can't believe this is allowed. By the way, the 5 star ratings that have been posted are suspiciously similar to one another. Hmm...
Very expensive app 2/5
I bought the $3.99 upgrade, then the voice addition for .99 cents. I thought the on screen ads would disappear. They're still there. My area has no zip code service prividers. The GPS part works. Everything wants more money.
Great App 4/5
I really like this app to help me stay informed of the weather in my area.
Love the map overlay radar 4/5
I love the within 5 min radar found on this app. The map overlay allows me to see exactly where warnings are in my area and helps me plan my day.
By Rph1956 18
Doesn't seem to be able to do much for you unless you purchase several extras at up to 3.99 each. My first impression is that this is just a money grab.
Did not work for me 1/5
No service in SW Florida
It messed up a bit but some things still work u know!
Great concern about human beings! Can't track or do crap on here.... Oh yeah.... Unless you give us more money every time you want to add something!!
Alert Fm 5/5
I found this app to be very user friendly!!! I use it daily when planning fishing trips and hunting trips!!!! I live in Lafayette, La and I think this app is so much better than ANY local weather station!!!
Amazing App 5/5
The Doppler radar makes this app a must have. Great user-friendly app.
Love the app 5/5
Great app. Helped save my car from a hail storm. No ads...
Just works 5/5
Very satisfied. Cheaper than a weather radio. Actually announces NOAA weather warnings+push notification. Enhanced radar and push notifications are cheaper than equivalent weather apps.
Started download, then read reviews, then stopped download and deleted. What a joke to charge for life.
Junk app 1/5
This is horrible. Every feature is an additional fee. Downloaded and paid one 4 dollar fee only to find it didn't even show the tornado watch we were under. Do not waste your time or money.
Don't download!!! 1/5
All I wanted was tornado warning alerts, but to get that feature u have to pay $3.99!
Incomplete and unoriginal 1/5
Does what numerous other alert and weather apps do, but with a less native interface. The graphics look badly scaled for iPad, like they made it for the iPhone and then slapped iPad readiness after the fact. Also doesn't auto-rotate. On top of it all they nickel and dime you for features that should just be included. Avoid this app and just use something like Weatherbug.
No local stations 1/5
Found no local station
Don't use 1/5
You can't do anything with the free app
You can't really do anything on the free app, you have to pay to get most of the alerts, I deleted it. Waste of space on my phone.
Tremendous alerting app 5/5
By 1st responder and engineer
I love all of the features this app provides. I have found 0 glitches in this app. Not only is it useful for first responders like myself any average joe can use this app. It uses your current locations and will send push alerts for any natural disaster like flooding, fires, tornadoes you name it. I guess apps like weather bug are in the past this app sends me alerts and I am also able to view the weather via radar and satellite imagery ( which definitely helps for when I am preparing for my business trips. Again I found zero glitches. This will be not only my weather app but my main app for all major alerts.. A+++
Try it out yourself you will not be upset.
Great way to stay informed during a crisis 5/5
This app will be really handy during Hurricane season. The ability to get push alerts for any location is great when the power is out.
New Orleans native 5/5
I downloaded the app for free, added a location for alerts (alerts were visible within the app), radar was beautiful, weather was accurate. Made an in-app purchase for voice notifications, push-notifications, and 3 locations (to monitor weather and emergencies for other loved ones). Went into settings to choose which alerts I wanted (there are many).
At this point, the app was still cheaper than many alternative emergency apps. When we had a strong cold front the other night in South Louisiana, the app woke me up with a Tornado warning and voice (great for the visually impaired) for my area. Just like a weather radio, but better! It's only a few bucks vs. $29.99-$49.99 for a weather radio that may or may not work.
Apparently my state also has the ability for emergency managers to publish non-weather related emergencies to this app. I am more than satisfied.
dont use 1/5
it is just a big ad for a dlc add on just don't bother getting this app
