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 quick widget access. • Hi-Def radar map is your home screen so you can quickly see what's going on at your locations. • Long-tap on the map to get current conditions, hourly and daily forecasts. • Save additional locations to ensure family members stay safe. • Closings for Baltimore, Buffalo, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Denver, Detroit, Green Bay, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Lansing, Milwaukee, Nashville, Omaha, Tulsa.

Sorry. Our local TV station is using this app for their weather app and recommends it for your latest weather. I’m sure it is a great app, but when you download it and want to see anything, you get a notice to PAY— MONTHLY. I have enough of those apps already. I have several apps from other TV stations that don’t charge anything.

Undependable

The biggest snow event of the year approaching, the weather map shows the whole United States clear. This happens all of time. Don’t waste your money.

Really nice app

A really great app....radar is kinda “iffy” or it would have EASILY received five stars.

Storm Shield the menu is hard to navigate. I have not yet been able to access the radar from it. And it does not show the weather or temperatures for the day It is not “user friendly.”

Pretty good app, but this app needs to be updated.

I like this weather app to keep me safe, but could use updates, and some changes to the map and weather layers. Hopefully new updates come out soon for this app.

Nothing special

I’ve been using the weather channel for a while and thought that I’d try this. The radar is slow to load and it doesn’t seem to give the option to stop the time progression that I’m used to with the other app. In other words, if I want to see the radar in an hour, there’s no way to stop it. Not worth changing.

A Great Weather App! 2020!

This App has been one of the Best Weather Apps that I could ever ask for, from Weather Channel to this App. I had this app for a long time. Especially I saw this app from YouTube! So I took the chance to use the App. It was Amazing that I could Track Weather, Temperatures, Warnings, and More! It made me feel like a Meteorologist. I have been fascinated with Weather for a long time now. Really Hope this Weather App will be Helpful and Useful to Others, who’re willing to use this app. I really Suggest this.

Bad

I used to love this app and it’s updates on weather but recently the app has had some bugs that keep it from having Notifications
By gogobigdaddyslimjim

Ugh

The old version was easy and intuitive. This new version is cumbersome. On top of it, they now want to charge you. There are other weather apps out there that are better and are free to use. Update: even after receiving a nice response from the app developer, I still stand by my original review. End of discussion Nov 2019 Radar keeps dropping out and won’t work. Canceled my subscription as well. Running on iPad Pro with latest iOS. January 2020 Radar only works when it wants to. Terrible app.
