Description

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 widget access. • Hi-Def radar map is your home screen so you can quickly see what's going on at your locations. • Fully supports Dark Mode in iOS 13. • Long-tap on the map to get current conditions, hourly and daily forecasts. • Save additional locations to ensure family members stay safe.

I’ve had the StormShield app since it was first released and I use it daily. I like that I can also see my local forecast right in the app. However, that feature hasn’t worked on my phone for the last few days abs it’s it’s frustrating.

Blood curdling / deafening alert

2
I can weather a storm but I only have so many more decibels to go until completely deaf after using this app with headphones. I would rather die in a snowstorm or hurricane than use this app for one more minute. Headache city do not download. Every weather app in the world has alerts. PS this alert came hours after all the other apps on my phone for the impending storms. Update. Developer response in no way offered a solution. Here’s one- perhaps make the notification less loud when on headphones. Or it could interrupt what’s playing and flash a text warning. My hearing is precious and the devs don’t seem to get that.
