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.

Reviews

This App is good for tornadoes

5
Love this app Because I love it so much
By fvhbvkc

Can’t find new location

App takes too long to recognize that you’ve moved to a new location.
By Manwithamagnum

Great weather app

4
Nice clean interface and accurate forecasts. Needs better widgets for the control center and would be a 5 star.

Simple and Reliable

5
If you like charts, tables and graphs, this app isn’t for you. But if you want something streamlined and easy to read, this is it. The app offers warnings for dozens upon dozens of conditions, from blizzards and volcanoes to tsunamis and tornadoes. I’ve used this app for a couple of years and it has never let me down. The radar also offers many different options, including a storm tracker, road conditions and lightning alerts. I gladly pay $1.49 a month for all the extra features.

Never alerted me to thunderstorm warning

1
I had the location set to always use on my iPhone and didn’t change any settings in the app and I never received an alert for severe thunderstorm warning.

Love jt

This is the only app that is ever always accurate. I’ve had it for year. I love the notification being sent and everything just makes sense

Lighting

5
Just watched Denis Philip talk about the danger of lightning and recommending that everyone download the Storm Shield app, so they are aware of any lighting in their area. That’s all fine and dandy, but you have to pay extra for the lighting overlay. Why isn’t it free, when lives are at risk. SkyTower 13 has it and it’s free, so if why do you charge extra for it? Come on, get with the competition and make it free. Again, lives are at risk and if you really want to help protect your viewers lives, you’ll offer it without charging for it. Thanks for considering this suggestion. Oh, by the way, you have a great app, but this would make a great app even better.
