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.

Appreciate the alerts

5
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.

Fantastic, but missing Critical Alerts support

5
Storm Shield is a fantastic weather alert app, but it is missing support for the Critical Alerts feature. First, Storm Shield provides more precise alerts than other apps, so I don’t get alerts about warnings for storms on the far side of my county and headed away from me. Second, the voice alerts actually speak the alert, so you know without having to look at your phone what the alert is for (e.g., flash flood watch vs tornado warning). The only thing missing is support for Critical Alerts, which allows notifications to break through even when a Focus mode is turned on. Ideally, I would be able to pick for each alert type whether the notification is a Critical Alert or not. (The Red Cross Emergency app let’s me do this.) That way I can decide which alerts break through and wake me up at night when the Sleep focus mode is on (e.g., Tornado Warning but not Severe Thunderstorm Warning).

Widget doesn’t work

4
In general this is a very good weather app especially compared to the piece of junk Apple puts out there. My only issue is that the widget doesn’t work—it says Unable To Load. I contacted their support & after sending them 3 or 4 screenshots of various things they asked for they just disappeared. I deleted & reloaded the app & the widget worked fine until I turned of my phone for the night then it disappeared again. If they had decent tech support this would be a 5 Star app for me.

Android

3
I’m giving this a 3 star because of the difference of this app between iOS and Android versions. I have iOS and my husband and son have Androids. The iOS version allows you to not alert, rename or delete a location. The Android version doesn’t have the option to not alert me on whatever location they don’t want alerted on. I just had to delete all the locations my husband visits, because he was getting nonstop alerts (they were all from locations he really didn’t need alerts from) Please update the Android version of this app to allow someone to hit Alert Me or not on their individual locations. Thank you
