I really like this ap however it was free for a few months. I noticed I was not getting the alerts anymore. I tried to upgrade but it will not allow me to do so. It says redeem from apple when I try that nothing happens. I got the email and clicked the link and have tried everything. I really wish I could get this working. My wife tried also om her phone no luck.
Seems this app is on its own with no developer support. I guess they don’t need my $$ because there is no way to renew my subscription without errors from the app.
I love this app but have had nothing but issues recently. I paid for a year and now when I login it makes me verify my purchase. When I got to verify it gets stuck forever on the verify screen. I would like to speak with the developers but it says there website is down. So I’m unable to even talk to them to resolve the issue. :( I really would like to have this app working.
It’s still the best ! No other wx app can match WI for providing push notifications for any NWS weather product, watch, warning, etc. The new version adds NWS graphics for hurricanes, severe thunderstorms and other SPC and WPC products. As an emergency manager, this is the app to have!
This was quite possibly my favorite weather app when I purchased it several years ago. Between the lack of support and the recent update which won’t allow me to restore my previous purchase, it is going to take a lot to re-establish its reputation.
It is not working with android
Developers: Really like what is going on here. But could be a little more “user friendly.” 1. Give users the ability to edit favorites by putting them in whatever order they desire. 2. Give users the ability to choose alerts that are applicable to their favorites via the “By Office” option. Unless I am missing something, I wish I could narrow alerts from “ANY” to whatever they choose under a breakdown of alerts picked.
I’ve set this up and not getting alerts by sound. I physically have to go look. Not happy for the cost of app. Hasn’t worked since I got it.
Used this app everyday. And working for a local tv station, it was nice to be able to stay up on the weather around the area. It was nice to get so much information (watches, warnings, AFDs) pushed straight to my phone. Then they went and added a “subscription” just to get those pushes. I get it. Wanting to make money on an app you created. But to provide those pushes for free for years but now it costs. Nope. I’m out.
Paid Subscription needed
