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.

It’s ok but the three rings in the beginning always scare me and my family. It also says that it’s foggy in my area but then I check it it says that it’s in philly.

I have to say, it’s really annoying that the voice alerts don’t indicate the location an alert is for. If you have more than one saved location, a generic alert is annoying, in that you have to check it to find out where it’s for. Not every alert for every location is worth the effort of getting the device, unlocking it, and checking the notification or the app, at all times. It would be more convenient to hear it and that’s all is needed.

Great App

Love this app, spot on for my area. Like the alerts to keep me updated. Having family all over the US, this is also a great app to keep updated with weather conditions.

Won’t Let You See Future Radar Unless You Pay

Kinda the whole point why I want to check the weather. I want to see what will happen in the future lol DELETE!!!!

Not Reliable.

2
Fails to accurately or reliably alert for sever weather. Dangerously unreliable considering this is a life saving app (at least it’s supposed to be).

Why change a good app to a non functional mess?

No sound in Forecast Report

3
I’ve bought this App and have used for several years now. There is recorded Forecast based on the area, and at one time the sound could be heard, but for 1-2 years now there has been no sound. I’ve gone through several updates hoping it would be fixed, but it still doesn’t work. I’ve tried to adjust it in other settings only phone (iPhone 8) but no luck. If someone knows of a fix, I would greatly appreciate it!
