Used this app for years. Even had a subscription. But they stopped using new maps and now have very old satellite images. So old that my house isn’t even on the map anymore and it was built 10 years ago.
All we get are messages across the phone. No Audible sounds. We had a EF 0 tornado come into our city and heard about it on the news the next morning.
This app is really great for a general-use radar, satellite imagery, but this app REALLY shines when it comes to push-notifications for weather alerts and warnings (which is something that even applications like RadarScope or Radar Omega don’t do). GLADLY have paid for the upgrade and have for well over a year! 100% satisfied and I am a weather spotter / chaser.
I get alerts sent to me immediately. I love it. And the alerts are loud enough for me to plan for a severe storm or catastrophic storm event.
I downloaded and have use this app for a year or two. As of lately nonessential alerts come out at 3:30 AM waking us up. For now I have turned the sound off, which makes it useless as an app to warn of a impending tornado.I have been informed that storm shield is not the one that sends out the alerts, I think it is NOAA weather service. I will try contacting them to see why they have to send out useless information at 3:30 in the morning. I appreciate the app people contacting me to inform me where the alerts were coming from. Thank you
Too much repetition!!!!!!!!
I have to open the app, Settings -> Manage Locations, select my current location and click Refresh. The weather alert then appears. Meanwhile both the Weather Channel and Accuweather apps have already alerted me to severe weather automatically without me having to do anything. I wouldn’t trust this app to alert me in severe weather. Uninstalled.
This was my go to but since I upgraded to an IPhone 11 with iOS 14 it’s just kind of there. Alerts are stuck in the background even with everything set right. 3 stars because it could be the best but it’s not really useful any longer.
This helps me so much!!!! My weather radio will not be delivered until Wednesday!... but this will still will remain on my phone. So accurate!
I have survived three hurricanes and send weather warnings and messages to family and friends. Tornadoes are different and you may not have an alert. X Its very important for everyone to check weather daily. Thank all of you who provide this service.
