Push notifications 4/5
By Grande Manzana
Using the iPhone XSM running iOS 12.1.1 and the app doesn't push notifications. Works on my 7plus running the same iOS platform. App needs some minor tweaking for compatibility. 4 stars as it works on my 7plus but 0 stars as it doesn’t work on the XSM.
UPDATE: Reset all the alert notifications. Apps seems to work and push notifications to include on the lock screen.
Used to work fine 2/5
I used to receive notifications normally regarding closures and delays but at some point all I ever received was daily status notifications...and now I just don’t receive any notifications.
Don’t download the latest update 1/5
Now it’s frozen on November 13, 2018.
Date not accurate 1/5
By iPhone user Maryland
It currently states the operating status for November 13th. It’s now November 15th. Does this type of thing happen often? Questioning the usefulness of this app. The OPM website is also not current. Looks like they need more than one person double-checking this stuff is current every day. Looks really bad.
App Showing Data from Two Days Ago 2/5
Doesn't push alerts or show correct day. Used to work.
The alerts are not working
Since March, sending open status almost daily 2/5
I’ve had this app for years without issue and ever since our last day off due to weather this app has been sending me open statuses almost daily. It stops for a few days and then starts again. I’ve gotten them on Saturday’s so not just M-F. The settings tab never opens up, the app just thinks and thinks and then settings tab goes away completely. I reported this in May initially. Please fix this app! Thank you.
Out of date 1/5
Sends a notification of operating at status EVERY night just past midnight. Not useful.
Alerts work, settings options don't 3/5
Successfully communicates operating status daily, whether you want it to or not! I have my settings configured to NOT provide a nightly alert and it does anyway. I also have the individual alerts sets to NOT alert me if status is OPEN. Yet every night a get an alert that it's open the next day. Assuming that most people are primarily interested in closures for weather or other reasons, you should probably make the settings work so that you can actually only be notified of closures.
5 star 5/5
Sends me a notification everyday
Doesn’t send alerts. No better than getting on the Internet and checking the OPM website. A perfect metaphor for our government - it doesn’t work as advertised.
iPhone X 3/5
Please make it iPhone X compatible.
Shut Down 5/5
I have the app loaded on my phone but it won’t completely open. Not sure why though
Doesn’t alert me when the status changes, have to check manually, which makes it useless
Works but only if I open it 1/5
Have had it for at least a year and it has never once sent a push notification. I checked all settings in the app and in iOS. For notifications I get the OPM emails. They tend to come an hour late but at least they come, and then gmail notifies me. Without notifications this app is kind of useless because you might as well just use Safari and go to the OPM website.
No alerts 1/5
The stupid thing never sends me alerts. I’ve driven all the way into work (to include today) when it was closed.
Settings won’t display 1/5
I’ve used the app on previous phones but now I can’t get to settings anymore.
Crashes upon opening 1/5
Every time the same thing...crashes at opening. Possibly because of over use by bewildered federal employees trying to access it at keys times with all the confusion on federal furloughs. But that’s when we need to view it and it doesn’t show updates in a long time. Please check it out for crash enhancements and updates .
OPM APP 5/5
By Bea Attitude
This is my “Go-To” App. One stop shop. The easiest way to eliminate the middle-man!
Can’t open the app 1/5
Crashes immediately when I try to open the app..... So I’m unable to use it unfortunately.
Is it supposed to alert re: operating status EVERY SINGLE DAY? 3/5
..or is this a new thing? Like even in regular weather too? Thanks, Jamie
And the hits keep on failing. 1/5
Outdated. Slow. Needs gentle (and constant) prodding to work. Hey OPM... a little love?
Absolutely great app but ... 5/5
It disappeared from the App Store for a short time in August/September/October. I accidentally deleted the app, and all I got from the App Store was “no longer available in your countries App Store.” I kept on checking the store for it.
So glad it’s back. I was worried I’d have to start watching the news again just to get 2017/2018 closures.
Needs updating 1/5
By Roi Des Rois
Outdated app (last update July 2016). This used to work ok back in the day but they only updated for iOS 8 01/2016 when iOS 9 was already out. Now iOS 10 is out and still nothing.
Either take this non-working app down or update it. Figures that the government can't manage anything properly, even a small app.
Add holidays 4/5
Add federal holidays.
To the point. 5/5
By Juicy J202
It does exactly what you would need it to do...Notify you of alerts.
Day of the month really small 1/5
Could you make the day of the month any smaller &$€¥%#
What about having the day of the week (amazing concept)
Works great!!!! 5/5
I get notified right away. I get up early in the morning, and to see the notification already there, is nice to know what is going on. It serves its purpose.
By DC FF
Has never pushed alerts always has to be manually refreshed.
Does its job 5/5
Work as expected alerts are simply and on time.
Doesn't work 1/5
Push notifications don't work. It is supposed be an "alert" like the title of the app. There is no alert if you don't get push notifications. The app needs a help
It does one thing well 5/5
During the big snowstorm in DC, I was happily sipping hot apple cider reading a book while my friends were madly hitting refresh on the opm website to find out if we needed to go into the office the next day. I got a little push notification at the same time they got the news. Thanks OPM!
Obviously a pretty useless app if you're not a federal worker or a DC employee whose work schedule is tied to OPM announcements, by if you are - super handy.
Works well 4/5
I've noticed if you are watching TV, they know before the APP. But it's nice to have cause if your not watching TV or out, you can still know if you need to go to work or not. It has worked well for my family.
Park is closed...moose out front should have told you 2/5
By Fed employee 7649823
The local news and opm website have the federal government closed tomorrow...not the opm app. When the federal government recommends getting the app for the most up to date info they might want to actually update the information. Way to drop the ball opm.
OK App 3/5
3 stars because the push notifications don't work.
Only gives status for current day, not future days. Not good enough for planning. 1/5
Needs to do more than tell you what you already know.
As stated works pretty good and simple.
App is not quite right 4/5
The app is not centered, it's shifted a 1/4in up the screen so you can't press the menu button.
Snow days app 5/5
By Broken app disliker
The app helpfully provides notifications on snow days or delays.
Pleasantly surprised 5/5
Really pleasantly surprised to see this updated for iOS 9 with a nice modern design, and in time for the winter season. Will hopefully be updated at least annually going forward.
Thank you for v2! 4/5
So much better and finally works again on iOS9. Thanks again. I agree with the comment on adding in Federal Holidays... That would be a nice feature, even though it is a given.
Works great after iOS 9 update 4/5
I love the app and being able to see the status right away especially now that winter is here.
Open on Federal Holidays? 1/5
It would be nice if the app was able to reflect federal holidays instead of displaying Status Open (which I suppose it is for those required to work on a holiday). Maybe a sprightly different status?
Works again! 5/5
Thanks for getting this working again. It's very helpful for the winter season.
Thank you sooo much! 5/5
I am happy you fixed it now we know for delays or cancelations so thanks again
Still crashing 1/5
No fix after OS update? Still crashes upon opening.
Hurry and update this app 1/5
By Bam-Bam Reloaded
I am aware that u know the app needs updating, but it's been too long for it not to be updated. Let's get it working properly.
Are you going to update it? 2/5
You say you are aware? Are you going to update the app? Myself as well of thousands depend on this app regarding inclement weather. Can you at least tell us if you don't plan on updating? It was an amazing great resource app until the iOS9 came out.
Update IOS9 please!!! 1/5
I use this app all the time in the winter. Please update this so I don't have to go to the website all the time or wait for the announcement on TV!
