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.

This is a great app, but recently they’ve decided to charge extra for certain alerts & conditions, such as lightning. Go figure....

I've had this app for more than 2 years now. This is my third update to my review... Radar presentation is very good but somewhere along the line with an update, sometimes there’s no radar information. You have to close the app (double-click home button, close app) and restart it. It’s been like this now for about 4 months or so. Hope they can fix this.

Disappointed

Storm Shield USED to be a fantastic app but they recently deleted the radar and future radar forecast from the app. I bought this app a couple years ago and paid around 7 dollars for it. They then changed it to a free app a year later with all the same features. They recently changed it so now you have to pay 99 cents a month for for radar and future radar forecast. I NO LONGER RECOMMEND THIS APP. There are better apps with more features that are free.

Hit or miss

This is one of several weather apps that I run. I’m in public safety and bots and apps monitoring various sources are how I stay up to the minute. I use StormShield for the weather alerts and quick glance doppler. Its hit or miss. I either get the weather alert (sometimes 2-4 of the same alert) or nothing at all. Its a little wacky because the NWS wire will have active warnings in place and the app is happy as a clam. For a free app with paid upgrade options its not bad. I just wish the alert portion of the app was more robust.

Very disappointed

I have had this app for years, originally paid for it. Now all of a sudden I have to pay more, monthly to get certain features to work? No thank you. I feel as if I have been scammed. I deleted the app from my phone. Perhaps Storm Shield should be featured on "Don't Waste Your Money"?

By Far The Best Radar!!

I love this app! The radar is so clear and it moves just at the right speed so I can track the storms timing. Very Happy!!

Not notifying/alarming like it used to :/

Storm shield used to make sound alerts for weather warnings. It doesn’t do that anymore. :(
By Angel’s iTunes

Very helpful

Would appreciate more expected weather details
By surogee

Customizable alerts

Detailed weather alerting like no other. Most apps have only a few options to determine what weather alerts you want to receive. With Storm Shied you can modify exactly what weather warnings, alerts, etc. you want to receive, very comprehensive.
