Needs Work 2/5
Problem #1: The alert sounds to choose from in settings are horrible.
Problem #2: no matter what alert sound you choose in settings, the default alert sound is what you get. It doesn’t use the alert sound you choose.
A Joke 1/5
Still cant sign in via App or website even though my log-in info is correct.
Useless - don’t bother to install 1/5
This app was recommended to me and several others during a natural disaster. None of us were able to read the multiple messages sent within the app. It was frustrating to see the growing number of unread messages and not be able to access them. Deleted.
Settings don’t work 3/5
Ok I would feel more confident in the app if settings worked correctly. I selected the Yelper alert sound and I received an alert using the “grating” Bell sound for a flash flood alert. I checked & it was still on Yelper the whole time. Now this sounds like a minor complaint but we just had a 16.5 billion disaster here and it would be good to be able to select a sound that allows you to remain calm and doesn’t get your heart racing & blood pressure up again=-0 Just my 2 cents. PS... a warning is definitely better than no warning so please just make sure the app settings work, Thanks
Subscription Failed 1/5
Paid for the subscription renewal, but the renewal failed. The app still wants me to renew my subscription and pay again.
Worst app ever 1/5
This app is too complicated. It alerts me and then a half hour later I finally get the information I need. This app is just too slow and cumbersome to be effective. This year I’ve been around tornadoes, flash floods and the Camp fire. This app is not dependable.
Doesn’t work well 2/5
Signed up days ago and went and personalized the settings.
Says each day a different number of alerts but no way to see what they are. Checked my phone number, everything is all correct in the app. Just doesn’t seem to let you see anything but a map and no way to open the alerts up to view.
Deleted as soon as I could not select an acceptable alert sound 1/5
I registered for this service, and then downloaded the app on the suggestion from a city flyer. I installed the app, and then tried to configure the settings. First setting is to select a sound for alerts - ALL of the options are obnoxious child toy alarms or sirens, and you can’t select a regular tone, or set the volume.
Needs work 2/5
Have the map overlay set for “satellite” and it just displays a grey shadow over the standard map... iPhone X running iOS 12.1.4 with latest version app installed. Also, not sure why I need to register a second time on mobile device, I must have reset my password on the website 5 times before I figured that out.
Half baked system 1/5
I just want to know if I need to not park in the street because of a snow “emergency”, even if I’m away from home. You can’t really do this. You can enroll online for both SMS and phone calls, but I only want SMS. And with the app you can do a radius alert, but that catches everything within that radius. If I’m away from home I get the wrong alerts. If I’m at home, I get alerts for stuff of no relevance.
Oh, I just noticed my town has a winter parking ban listed as “Community” while the next town over has the exact same ban listed as “Emergency”. Um...
P.s. app crashes with ease
Active alerts needs to be more customizable 2/5
When I open the app and see 80+ “active alerts” but none of them actually apply to me it’s frustrating. The app is overly alarmist and won’t show you details of active alerts either. Instead you have to expand out to see if alerts are occurring where you plan on going, click on them and then see details. It makes it frustrating to use.
Had issue earlier but they fixed it 5/5
I ended up calling the # that the app person listed in others posts and they were super helpful about removing my prior location since I have now moved.
Unfortunately my current area has not enrolled in code red but I will still get emergency texts if they occur.
They do have excellent customer service and I thank the sweet lady that helped me out.
A good app 4/5
It has it up and downs but over all a good app
Fast push notification for tornado 5/5
I almost forgot I had this app installed until there was a tornado warning issued for my house an hour ago. I received the CodeRED notification a solid 2 mins before any of the 4 other weather apps I have installed. And 15 mins before I got my Seminole County Alert. Not sure what the county is using but 15 mins is too long during a tornado warning.
Good app but has issue 2/5
It’s a good app but will not let you register without an error message.
Really worthless interface. 1/5
Honestly I don’t get the value of this app. I see there are active alerts but cannot pull up a list nor can I select my area’s alerts. I must be missing something but this really has very little value.
Doesn’t Work 1/5
Even though I have notifications turned on, I haven’t received any alerts for many months.
Really nice 5/5
Will be important with upcoming weather events.
Alerted how? 2/5
Alerts don't show up. The amount does but the information does not.
Serious issue with app 1/5
By Nor-Cal Reviewer
Bottom line, this app should have never left the beta testing loop.
The app has never worked correctly. It goes off from time to time alerting that there’s an emergency of some sort, but when you log into the app itself, you cant view what the emergency actually is. Not a lot of help to say the least.
Beyond this, the app makers make money from local communities that distribute their emergency messages via the app, and then the app maker expects you the consumer to pay for the app to use it too! So you as a tax payer pay for it once, then you as a consumer pay for it again.
No thanks. App will be deleted.
No ALERT! 1/5
My daughter just advised me there was a robbery up the street from her house LAST NIGHT!
She NEVER RECEIVED ANY ALERT!
She had no clue as to what was going on so close to her while she was outside with her 4 year old daughter walking her dog!
She knew something was wrong because, She saw helicopters circling!
I checked my “CodeRED” app and it said, MY SERVICE EXPIRED!
I didn’t pay before , why do I need to pay .99 for a emergency Notification now?!
Great App when traveling! 5/5
I rely on the CodeRED Mobile Alert App when I am traveling to receive important notifications. Recently I was in MA and received a Flood warning! Without this app, my safety could’ve been in danger while traveling on the road. Thank you CodeRED!!
Great tool to have in my pocket 5/5
I have had this app for years and always provides me with updated information, especially when I travel. Being able to use the mapping interface for my specific area gives peace of mind and also lets me stay up to date with family members who are out of state
Great mobile app 5/5
This is a great app that provides me with general and emergency notifications no matter where I am located. Whether I am in my home town or if I am traveling for work I can receive important information. Highly recommend downloading this app so you are always in the know!
Great to be able to see incidents everywhere 5/5
By Lisa Tbird
I own an RV and this app allows me to see the incidents where ever we go clearly on a map. It has really been useful as we travel!
Great app for getting vital alerts 5/5
CodeRED is excellent for getting vital information when I am at home or traveling. I didn’t have tv service while camping but this app let me know when my family needed to take cover during severe weather. Thanks for always keeping me informed about critical info.
Doesn’t work 1/5
By Tune cat
This app never worked for me. When I launched it today, it said that there were 45 alerts in my area, but I couldn’t read any of them, nor have I ever received any alerts from this app. Then I received a message that my weather subscription had expired & I needed to renew it. I don’t recall having paid for this to begin with. Deleted the app.
Informative & Easy to Use 5/5
I love how simple this app is to maneuver. I feel safe knowing I’ll receive notifications for my City while home and comfortable that I’ll be alerted while traveling for work.
I downloaded this app and purchased two years of service because the city we live at has the CodeRed service and advises us to download this app. BUT then by accident I logged off of it and I have not been able to retrieve my password. The App says that it has ‘sent’ an email for me to reset but the email has never arrived. So, here I am in KS, in the middle of tornado season and unable to use this app. Plus, while I was able to use it (last year), I never received a sound/alarm notification even though I had set up for the most noisy alarm available and for a close range to my location. But it never informed me of impending bad weather, I had to manually look at the app to review the weather.
Great app for life and property 5/5
I really enjoy this app. We had a severe weather event that was identified by the app. Five minutes later we had hail, rain and lightening. We were able to get the car in the garage with a couple minutes to spare. Not only do we get the push notification, we get SMS and a phone call. Thank you OnSolve!!!
Totally Unresponsive 1/5
This app would be great if it did what it was supposed to do. Too bad it’s completely unresponsive and useless. If you want an app to tell you where you are with a number of active alerts at the bottom that you CAN’T EVEN SEE then by all means. Otherwise, don’t waste your time.
SCRAP THE APP…
Doesn’t work 1/5
I have received no alerts when there have been fires. And when I scroll on the map to see other fires that are burning, it shows nothing. It’s dangerous to have an app like this out there. People expect to get a warning, and get nothing.
I signed up my partner and I online... 1/5
...And I can access it on a computer or usual search bar just fine. I am set up for emergency alerts for my area but the past two times I tired logging onto my account it said my username or password was wrong so I changed my password and it still says so. So I logged in on my computer and I logged in just fine. So idk why I’m having this issue with the app.
What Does This Thing Do? 1/5
By Todd Camack
What’s the point of any app that is confusing/doesn’t work? It seems to be completely non-functional.
Not free 1/5
Beware this is not free when your time runs out then they want u to pay $1 to resign rip-off
1) cannot pinpoint emergency site on map (we are in rural area) 2) sound does not work for either notifications or for verbal option in determining nature of alert.
Worthless, seriously. 1/5
By John (Wildfire Survivor)
Did someone get paid to develop this app? Try looking up any of the fires all over the news right now. This is irresponsible, they need to take it down and stop adding confusion to dangerous situations.
After reading the developer responses - I don’t understand, are you going to troubleshoot interface problems with people after they’re burnt alive in their sleep, expecting an emergency notice from you that didn’t work properly?
Can’t login 1/5
Warning: if you sign up online with a third party oauth service (facebook/google) you can’t login with this app.
Terrible App Don’t Waste Your Time 1/5
I have NEVER gotten an alert. We have had two major crimes in our area today. One was a fatal shoot that was huge on local news that happened less than 2 miles from our home and nothing. The other crime made national news and again nothing from the app. Completely worthless!
Good start but needs more 1/5
Please add the option to have one or more zip codes for locations, rather than requiring gps only. As other reviewer has also stated, having to navigate entire US every time App is loaded is not efficient in an emergency. I can see you building a good beta version upon these suggestions - a good start.
Unreliable Dats 1/5
This app is worse than nothing, as it fails to show what should be alerts within my set radius.
Can’t sign in. 1/5
I signed up on the website using my google account information (Log in with Google).
I can’t sign in to the app.
The app is pretty useless.
Not user friendly 1/5
I’ve tried over and over to renew subscription with no luck. Yesterday I got notified I bought it twice when I had not done anything.
App Is Horrible 1/5
Trying to download the app and we keep getting errors. The message reads "if problem persists, contact customer service". Crap app that defeats the purpose of trying to se in an actual storm!
Benefits of Code Red!!!! 5/5
By Haley's Bird House
I Love Code Red, I would like to know how to benefit from it when traveling out of state any emergencies that may come up at home or out of state in the area I might be in. Also, I know someone who lives in Royce City, Texas I know that this was sent to us in our Utility Bill for the Residents in Garland, Texas to sign up but, is this for anyone to sign up for?
Login Issues 1/5
By Cammy Jane
This app does not allow me to log in with my correct username and password at all!!
Beta release at best - Separate login? Really? 1/5
How do you decide to launch an app that requires you to create a separate login from the website it's toed to? I've never even heard of such a thing before. I know that they're "working on it" for a future release. But how is logging in to the app with the same login as the website not feature #1 in a mobile app companion to a website? Truly baffling decision.
By Gazing sun
I downloaded the Code Red app to my iPhone and followed the directions but I was not able to register due to an error message that says “something happened during your registration and the registration failed.” I will delete the app from my phone if I cannot get my registration to work. Thank you.
