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

They use old maps now

1
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.

No sound

2
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.

Great For Alerts!

5
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.

Love it

5
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.

3:30 AM nonessential alerts

4
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

Repetion

Too much repetition!!!!!!!!
By RC&Rufus

No notifications

1
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.
By DeansReview

Used to be the best

3
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.
By markh20

The best app!

5
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!
By hairdresser05

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.
