When I purchased this app, notice the purchase, it was really good. The app was recommended by a very reliable weather man. It really went down over the years. Please update and bring it back.

Please update!!!

This was one of the very first apps I downloaded years ago and I have always used it faithfully. PLEASE update this app!!! It's my go to weather app and it’s the most accurate one out there.

No fluff version awesome potential needs some love

Looks like the developer is not supporting this version of this app any more. Lightening detection is hit or miss at best. This app could be a real life saver if some attention would be paid to it.

Waste of money.

Only works if you activate the app and set it ip before each occurrence and many of the other things described in the what the app does description is just an outright lie. Only thing it does as far as vocally is say “a weather warning has been issued”, something about like that. It does have an audible tone first.

App is a shell of its former self

ORIGINAL REVIEW LEFT JUN 11, 2013 • 5 STARS (7 years ago) UPDATED JUN 23, 2020 • Hello Weather Decision Technology, what have you done to this app!? It used to alert me to life-saving Tornado Alerts in my area. I used to be able to save spots on the map to get Severe Weather Alerts when they popped up. Evidently, all that has gone to the way side. I would gladly pay you again the $4.99 I originally paid in 2013 just to have this functionality back again. This app has not been updated in 4 years when iOS 9 was a thing. Where has your focus gone? Even your Zendesk Help is no longer available and that is coming from your very own support pages from iTunes AppStore. Please direct me to where you are focusing your efforts, and maybe I can support you there... but at this point I can not recommend this app. -TJ

The app now just flashes open for a second and then closes. Please fix.

Look elsewhere

I have had this app for a while now and it’s always been reliable. As of late the weather reports have been inaccurate and today we had a tornado WARNING and it never went off or issued the alert! My Alexa warned me. I’m furious. I’m looking for a new app now. I count on this for critical updates and can’t anymore.

Needs an update

This app was great for alerts but doesn’t work right anymore. It still works fine on my old iPhone 4 but on my iPhone SE (2020) it is useless. Notifications do not work. The app freezes constantly. It used to be great but now it’s just taking up space. Will update if there is ever an update.

Used to be good...

This app can not be trusted. I am in Charleston, SC (April 13, 2020) writing this review and getting zero audible alarms with tornado warnings active. This app used to blare audible alarms when a tornado watch or waning was activated. All my settings show that some warning should be active in this app, but the only way to see any warning is to open the app and go to the main page. Terrible.

Once great, no longer

This was once a great app. The app allows for marking small areas for alerts, meaning that alerts are more accurate than say, a watch/warning across the county/parish. As of this review, the app hasn’t been updated in 4+ years. It badly stands in need of larger phone support (last update was for iPhone 6 & 6+). Also, it has no cloud syncing of locations, meaning that I have to set all of my locations manually for each device and redo them every time I get a new device. These seem to be fairly standard features in most apps now days, but they haven’t updated in over 4 years. The coding infrastructure must be behind the times also, as it loads very slowly and map overlays are often incomplete. What an absolute shame to let such a great app go to waste!
