  • Can’t get past Tip of the Day 1/5

    By Maddimoo100496
    Just installed on iPad and can’t get past the Tip of the Day. No menus. No links. No X to close. Nothing.

    By rod.musselman
    In my experience over a few MONTHS this app is essentially unsupported & unusable! Great idea, but poor development....
  • Great App. 5/5

  • Very informative apps 5/5

    By Chetopar
    Nice to have this apps, you're up to date on what's going on our planet earth
  • Eye Opening App 5/5

    By Bev in TX
    I don't know about other people but sometimes I get "tunnel vision" and tend to focus more on what is going on in my little corner of the world. This app has been an eye opener for me in terms of the bigger picture about calamities occurring all over our world. It is sobering to see so many disasters and makes me much more appreciative of each day. The app is easy to navigate and very informative. It's definitely a keeper.
  • Not impressed 1/5

    By Nesslar
    I had this app a few years ago it was great back then. When the big earthquake hit Montana this year, I remembered this app and quickly went to download it for future events. It's been a while now and Montana currently has 175,000 acres on fire right now and not one notification has popped up. I see notifications of tornados two years ago and fires in other states but nothing but dry weather conditions warnings. This app is useless to me if I can't have current events for my state. Just about to delete this app unfortunately.
  • Forced paid subscription 1/5

    By iRun40
    App is okay but you can't filter alerts to ones that have any sort of relevance to you. They also try you to pay a logre monthly or yearly fee for things that should be free. I would have been open to paying a smaller, one-time fee, but clearly they have not tested this with a market yet.
  • ⁉️ 5/5

    By pickettslaststand
    I married during a hurricane in Alcapulco, June 16, 1971. I am so glad to know where the bad weather is BEFORE I go there😖‼️
  • Disasters do not match daily occurrences in my searches 2/5

    By dogs see for me
    In searching for some of the disasters quoted in the app, I looked up mentions of tornadoes and other events occurring in the United States by checking the weather channels and the Google references. I was not seeing correlations between listed disasters on this app and occurrences in the areas where the disasters were listed.
  • Great App 5/5

    By cyberpoet4u
    This app has every feature I am looking for.
  • Disaster Alert 5/5

    By Shiested
    I like apps like this
  • Cool & faster too! 5/5

    By Ctzen
    Update has made it faster. Still a bit too many notifications, but I have families all over & use this app everyday to see what may be going on. I'd still rather get more alerts, than missing an important one. Thanks guys.
  • Great app 5/5

    By Disaster_prone
    Really helpful to see what's happening out there, especially when I'm on the road.
  • FAST! 5/5

    By cohibafan
    Told me about an earthquake that hit near my family only seconds after it occurred.
  • I love this app 4/5

    By Love normal
    Best app ever
  • Fair to partly cloudy 3/5

    By #400player
    This app leaves out or they don't know of other reported events that happens as the earthquake in Northwest Tennessee on Feb. 2017 never showed up on this app ! There need to be a archives search on this app for back information, if you want to track back history. Nothing reported on nuclear waste of Japan Monitoring or other sites. No links to lake or river pollution levels that each U.S. state documents and reports. I probably want keep this app much longer ! If you get this app opp out of notices an alert ! You'll get pop ups all the time ! You can turn off in the app also !
  • Needs updating 3/5

    By revbob1
    This app is helpful, but it needs to be updated. It slows down everything else.
  • Decent 4/5

    By Trish.leo83
    Wish there were different layer options /notification options but it's ok.
  • Criminal and Dangerous 1/5

    By Junkyard23
    This important app costs $10 a year!!!! Obvioulsly this was made only to make money from the lucrative Emergency Management market not individuals who at risk. Needs to be a minimal alert version to provide safety information that is free.
  • Great information 5/5

    By Graven2014
    This app has exactly what I am looking for. Quick snapshot of what's going on around the globe with good info that assists me in my job. Would recommend to anyone in this line of work.
  • Great 4/5

    By Rahkyt
    Does what it is supposed to.
  • Informational app, pricey for full version 4/5

    By CptRockRanger
    I appreciate being able to know what events are happening around the world, however I think the price could be reduced significantly . You would probably get a lot more customers by charging $2.99 for the app. The free version does not provide enough information so many people will delete the app. Reconsider your policy, you receive a considerable amount of money through the government and grants.
  • Awesome app! I love knowing when situations change. 5/5

    By Tatsuo-Sama
  • Ms. 5/5

    By Grammybeth55
    I LOVE this app! While living on an island in the Pacific Ocean it kept me up to date on what was happening not only to my area but also around the world! Now back in the states I can still track the weather where ever friends and family live! Thank you!
  • Very useful 5/5

    By RedOval
    This is one of my favorite app. Keeps me informed about disasters even before it hit the news. It's the best way for me to know that my family & friends all over the world are safe.
  • Great App! 5/5

    By A Mechanist
  • Christian Chaplain/ Emergency Comms 5/5

    By Dr David Carter
    A very nice fusion of many bits of data over a wide range of event classifications. Adding a cat agony for NBC (nuclear, biological and chemical) events would be beneficial...especially in our current world socio-political & nation-state flux.
  • App. Cannot connec 1/5

    By Garbagge
    I have used this app for over 2 years until this morning. When I tried to open app message was, cannot connect with server. All my other apps i have no problem. Only yours!
  • Vice President/Resident Instructor 5/5

    By CPR Wasilla
    Our business relies on accuracy. Your up to the minute data has helped to provide that out front information which allows for actionable trainning. That alone makes it invaluable. Great App.
  • Great app for Security Professionals 5/5

    By SteveSims
    As a Security professional who oversees the health and security of many teams all over the world this app is a great way to stay alert to many disasters where our teams are as they happen. It helps me stay on top of such things
  • Geomercenary 3/5

    By Geomercenary
    Great application. I' not sure what all a paid subscription would do, exactly (and this would be good to "exactly" know); however, given the info is free from many other locations... I think $1 or $2 or $3 per year (at different customizable levels) would be more reasonable and bring more paying subscriptions. Almost there!
  • Impressive Coverage 5/5

    By NewToBars
    Nicely done interface & plenty info for major global events.
  • Great 5/5

    By -601-
  • Great, but 4/5

    By Colectrdoc
    The app is extremely informative and I like the way it's set up, but $10.00/year is a lot. I wouldn't mind a one time fee.
  • Good, but 5/5

    By East Coast Fire Rescue
    Interesting fusion of available information, I like the app, however wish I could filter the alerts I receive without becoming a paying customer.
  • Excellent! 4/5

    By Designing it
    Of course there are additional alerts that should be included in this program. Wars, biological terrorism, and so on, and (which I would really like to see), response levels to these emergencies. We need to take care of what we can.
  • Doesn't cover emergent events 3/5

    By Rangesaf
    Lacks detail. Covers major events but not localized fast breaking events like shootings, hazmat incidents or fires. Be nice to have it alert based on specific user location. Perhaps using Twitter hashtags from PIO's or other real time monitoring.
  • Good 5/5

    By Xaxaty
  • Wish I could customize 4/5

    By GKabanuk
    Very informative app, but I wish I could customize it.

    By devildogbi

    By Ballsac71
    I like this app. It keeps you informed and holds onto the alert for a ling time.
  • Great app 4/5

    By Yunqueman
    This is a great app with a lot of info.
  • Should I buy? 1/5

    By lyndensbs
    I want to like it, but the free app tells me.... Don't waste your time or money.

  • Disaster Watch 5/5

    By Qsvnl
    This app is a must have. It's a go to app to learn what's happening where.
  • Outrageously Expensive!! 2/5

    By Wildstar8
    This service is provided by multiple government agencies that we pay taxes to support. Now they want to charge us $10 PER YEAR for information that our taxes already pay for!?! This would be a lot for a one time charge, but every year? This is bad enough for working folks, but for those on fixed incomes it's totally ridiculous! If you don't pay the ransom, then you will be bombarded with information from the far corners of the earth and cannot limit it to that which affects your area. The mission statement states that the purpose of the app is to help people to prepare for times of emergency. So stop charging a ransom to make it efficient for us to use it.
