Storm Shield App

Named by Time.com's @Techland as one of the best weather apps for your iPhone and Apple Watch. Severe weather alerts for your exact location. Storm Shield gives you storm-based alerts for tornado, hurricane, flood, thunderstorm, winter storms and other life-threatening weather events via voice and push notification. Storm-based alerts help reduce false alarms by alerting you to severe weather based on your exact location within a county. County-based alerts can result in false alarms, warning you when your location in the county is not within the threatened area. What people are saying: • Storm Shield "alerted our family of the Broken Arrow, OK tornado, faster than the TV and tornado sirens." - Robyn • "I was in Oklahoma City during the tornado... we were right in its path. Your app literally was a life saver." - dcalk12 Benefits: • Get voice alerts just like a NOAA weather radio via push notification anywhere in the United States. • With Apple Watch, get a tap on your wrist when alerts are issued for your locations. • Add Storm Shield's widget to your Today screen to get quick access to active alerts for the first location in your app. • Touch Storm Shield's app icon on your 3D-Touch enabled iPhone for quick widget access. • Hi-Def radar map is your home screen so you can quickly see what's going on at your locations. • Long-tap on the map to get current conditions, hourly and daily forecasts. • Save additional locations to ensure family members stay safe. • Closings for Baltimore, Buffalo, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Denver, Detroit, Green Bay, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Lansing, Milwaukee, Nashville, Omaha, Tulsa.

Storm Shield app reviews

  • Got to pay 3/5

    By Ruthymarire
    This app does give weather alerts. But when you try to see what’s coming in the future you got a pay for it. What kind of weather alert do you have to pay for.
  • Storm Shield app 5/5

    By DEM0459
    I have had your Storm Shield app since you first introduced it and up until lately I have been happy with it. But since I found out that the information is supply by somewhere in another time zone I have been less and less pleased with it. For instance, tonight on the 10:00 news Mike Nelson said it was still 81 degrees however when I checked my app it said 77 degrees. I know I don’t live in Denver but I’m not that far away that I would think I would have that much of a difference! Please, why can’t your app have its information loaded from here in your studios?? Sincerely, an unhappy app user.
  • Good app! 5/5

    By suite310
    This app was worth the price!
  • Get this app 5/5

    By Teslamodels3xy
    I love this app. When there is an alert issued, Sometimes it will explain to you the situation and it’s amazing. Totally recommend it.
  • Great app 5/5

    By girlygamer560
    I have a cracked windshield on my car and i live in colorado so the weather here is very bipolar in my opinion, and i got to watch out for hail, and this app notified me everytime a storm is gonna come. I really like this app, its helpful. Although the radar doesnt show up when i first open it thats a little sketchy but give it a sec and it will load! Besides, great app!!
  • Weather info at Anywhere anytime! 5/5

    Accurate covers the whole metro area and beyond !
  • 👍👍👍 5/5

    Best weather app ever
  • Great App 5/5

    By Cygnus Deneb
    You can depend on Channel 5’s Meteorologists to give timely warnings and excellent updates!
  • Excellent App 5/5

    By Ro Dias
    Only app I have on my phone for weather alerts that actually alerts me of impending bad weather. I would say that it is 99% accurate. Highly recommend.
  • Great to have 5/5

    By cheriebsby
    Awesome
  • Very Very Useful 5/5

    By Cocrules
    Being able to know future weather and dangers possibly harmful for life is always a plus and this does its job scarily well
  • No longer gives weather detail 5/5

    By Rebb42
    Update June 25,2019: the developer advised that the “weather statement” is a National Weather Service” decision. While those words mean nothing, it’s not the fault of the developers. Otherwise, in severe weather conditions, this app gives clear and loud alerts/warnings and we have relied on it for years. I changed my rating to 5. I appreciate the clarification from the developer. ************************* Previous review: This was a great app but the audible weather alert just says “weather authority has issued a statement”. That is unacceptable. For visually impaired and all others, we need to hear the actual alert details. Now we have to walk to the phone, open the app and read the alert. Please fix this problem quickly. Thank you.
  • Lightning alerts should be included FREE 3/5

    By HelloPretzel
    $0.99 for lightning alerts is petty. Include them in the free version.
  • Rwatson 3/5

    By rcled
    I like the alerts it gives for where I am at and where I live. It keeps me informed..
  • Love it but 4/5

    By lil nas x 69
    Only thing I don’t like is that you have to buy lightning warnings
  • Accuracy not reliable 3/5

    By WChesterpizza
    The timing of rain and percentage of possibility is way off. I don’t feel I can trust this app for rain chances. I do like the warnings for severe weather-that has been accurate and helpful.
  • Great app 5/5

    By brandt miller
    My personal meteorologist Mr. Joe Degregorio recommended this app, and based on what i am receiving on the alerts, he is once again correct to warn about potential severe weather. This app is amazing!
  • This App is amazing 5/5

    By RoyaltyPoo
    All around amazing this app accurately portrays and warns me of bad weather!
  • But.... 5/5

    By hhtjifuvjuf
    This is a great app, but recently they’ve decided to charge extra for certain alerts & conditions, such as lightning. Go figure....
  • Save your $$ 2/5

    By RikSan50!
    I've had this app for more than 2 years now. This is my third update to my review... Radar presentation is very good but somewhere along the line with an update, sometimes there’s no radar information. You have to close the app (double-click home button, close app) and restart it. It’s been like this now for about 4 months or so. Hope they can fix this.
  • Disappointed 1/5

    By Frapi125
    Storm Shield USED to be a fantastic app but they recently deleted the radar and future radar forecast from the app. I bought this app a couple years ago and paid around 7 dollars for it. They then changed it to a free app a year later with all the same features. They recently changed it so now you have to pay 99 cents a month for for radar and future radar forecast. I NO LONGER RECOMMEND THIS APP. There are better apps with more features that are free.
  • Hit or miss 3/5

    By Ohwrdami
    This is one of several weather apps that I run. I’m in public safety and bots and apps monitoring various sources are how I stay up to the minute. I use StormShield for the weather alerts and quick glance doppler. Its hit or miss. I either get the weather alert (sometimes 2-4 of the same alert) or nothing at all. Its a little wacky because the NWS wire will have active warnings in place and the app is happy as a clam. For a free app with paid upgrade options its not bad. I just wish the alert portion of the app was more robust.
  • Very disappointed 1/5

    By Creamcheese430
    I have had this app for years, originally paid for it. Now all of a sudden I have to pay more, monthly to get certain features to work? No thank you. I feel as if I have been scammed. I deleted the app from my phone. Perhaps Storm Shield should be featured on "Don't Waste Your Money"?
  • By Far The Best Radar!! 5/5

    By p0669
    I love this app! The radar is so clear and it moves just at the right speed so I can track the storms timing. Very Happy!!
  • Not notifying/alarming like it used to :/ 1/5

    By Angel’s iTunes
    Storm shield used to make sound alerts for weather warnings. It doesn’t do that anymore. :(
  • Very helpful 3/5

    By surogee
    Would appreciate more expected weather details
  • Customizable alerts 5/5

    By RVR57
    Detailed weather alerting like no other. Most apps have only a few options to determine what weather alerts you want to receive. With Storm Shied you can modify exactly what weather warnings, alerts, etc. you want to receive, very comprehensive.
  • Night Forecast Is Missing 1/5

    By Chirleski
    The app is worthless without a night forecast for tomorrow night and the following nights after pressing “details”.
  • I paid for this, not it’s free 2/5

    By Rats0700
    I paid for this app and now you offer it for free. I may have paid twice, once for Android, once for iOS. It used to have much more functionality now it’s stripped down. I’d like a refund.
  • Storm Warnings 5/5

    By psp1946
    Love this APP! No matter where I’m traveling it lets me know if there is a weather problem.
  • Weather watcher 5/5

    By judithho
    Right on the money that came in last night
  • Wanted to like it... 3/5

    By Vanessa71638492926:7
    I downloaded this app strictly to get weather warning alerts... all notifications are on and enabled both in app and settings, yet it WILL NOT alert me of anything.
  • Very pleased 5/5

    By DTRTRD
    This app is great! One never wants destructive weather. Nevertheless, it does happen. I’m happy to report that this app gave us two tornado warnings today. It’s unmistakable siren will get your attention. Then followed with a narrative explaining the situation. A big thanks to the developers!
  • Stopped working 1/5

    By An serf
    Not getting alerts anymore. I know others who are having the same problem. Didn’t know about a tornado warning until it was right on us. No alert.
  • Great system 5/5

    By Starmopar
    Very reliable and a lifesaver.
  • Storm Shield App. 5/5

    By fhjedhysfjk
    Love this app. I live alone and am terrified of storms. This helps me so much in keeping calm and taking cover if need be!
  • I wish... 4/5

    By kcordi
    I wish flash flood warnings wouldn't alert me unless it was in my neighborhood. It goes off to frequently and is annoying!
  • Great 5/5

    By Bohemian Oma
    I love the alerts and the up-to-date radar.
  • A Crappy and garbage app 1/5

    By Rev Jude
    I am a weather observer and when I first purchased this app I thought was pretty good. I contacted them and they got back to me in reference to my questions about the radar and also hurricane tracking? Now my son they are the speakers on and they want to charge you for them. I said something to them and they didn’t like it because I feel this way when we purchased these apps we can automatically get what is the add to it. All the other apps that I have do the same thing they give it to you accept with them. This app is very in accurate and also very horrible. It doesn’t tell forecast for nothing. I depend on it from my job and also packed a storm chase in this app is horrible. I do not recommend this app anyone. Do not practice is it a waste your time it’s garbage and very crappy. I wish I never purchased this app from them because it’s horrible. They only care about making money not a good app. I recommend AccuWeather even the weather bug is very good. Also any of the NOAA radar My radar apps are very good as well compared to this crappy app. I will add one more thing I do storm chasing and that was why I decide to get this app. I am a lesson learned from this garbage. Now are use other apps that a much superior to this crap.
  • Love the app but!!! 4/5

    By mtab73160
    The app is great and has so many alerts and seems to be very accurate! The only issue I’m having is that, it’s causing a drain on my battery!!!
  • I’m literally trying to check on a flood warning 5/5

    By tidrion
    I’m literally trying to check on a flood warning and you’re bugging me about giving you a review!? Might want to see if you can work on that logic but thank you for your app. It’s literally a life saver. Yes
  • Radar does not load reliably. 1/5

    By Chili Dog 1
    I can be in the middle of a severe thunderstorm and the radar shows all clear. I have reinstalled the app many times and try restarting the app and it only works part of the time.
  • Works good 5/5

    By marshallokie
    Several river flood alerts in my area and app sent out warnings every time. Same with severe storm warnings, very happy with storm shield.
  • Accurate reporting 5/5

    By MRG1010!
    I love this app. No matter where I travel in America it works. Thanks for creating such a great weather app.
  • Best App ever 5/5

    By Staceymac0814
    Look we live in the Brighton Mi. Area and have a 14 year old son who is involved in 3 different sports all outside and let me tell you I’ve tried all the other apps and they don’t hold a candle to Storm Shield. He also snow boards here in Brighton so I really rely on this app foe sanity lol, thank you also for the Storm Shield Alerts for severe Storms I really rely on it I also have two dogs and yes we do hit the basement for severe weather and this app has saved our lives when I was pregnant with my son. I truly feel that all the other weather apps have tried and failed to imitate your wonderful work, please keep up the good work keeping us safe. Thank you so much and from this mom to others it is well worth the money to protect your family when you have the air on in the middle of the night and can’t hear the tornado sirens, this app will save your families lives.
  • Pretty good with some glitches 4/5

    By boneandmandy
    I have had this app for a bit over a year. I have had to uninstall and reinstall a few times because it tends to stop notifying me of weather warnings and watches. I have another weather app as well just to make sure I don’t miss anything. One of my biggest complaints is the “Special Weather Statements”. I get notified that there is a Special Weather Statement, but when I go to the app, there is nothing there. I then have to go to the NWS to see what I have missed.
  • Helpful! 5/5

    By LewisLady
    Extremely helpful app. Easy to customize. Only sounds an alert if your location is actually within the cone of a warning, so you don’t get needless alerts about stuff happening on the other end of your county.
  • Doesn’t show active tornados...? 3/5

    By Ihop23947
    I don’t think this app shows actual tornadoes that have been spotted. If it does I don’t know where. My tv is talking about two right now near me down to what road they’re near and all I got on this app is a warning. Woopie!
  • What happens?? Broken 3/5

    By Robert121571
    What has happend I’m no longer getting push notifications for weather alerts for my current location. Location is set always all alerts are enabled but I don’t get a push notice. We are under a flood watch and a tornado watch and not a peep from this app. I open the app and it shows the alerts but no push. I’ve even removed and reinstalled the app last week because same thing hoping it would fix it.
