This app is amazing for fire-buffs. Maybe the number one app for this sort of thing. The only suggestion I have, is to PLEASE cover smaller emergencies. I noticed a notification only pops up for LARGE emergencies or large fires. Please give us a heads up about smaller calls, like gas leaks, trash fires, and could we be noticed about where units are responding to also? Thanks.
I was hoping to be able to use this app and give a great review but it won’t let sign up for a log in. I’ve tried for 3 weeks now hoping there was an error on their end and it would be corrected. Disappointed.
Don’t waste your money on the premium subscription, they charge 5.99 a month which is expensive and they do not keep up with posts and notifications for Long Island. Not worth the money at all. Buyer beware.
After upgrading to IOS 13 I stopped receiving notifications. Hope the app will be updated to fix this issue.
Signed up for paid version and selected Manhattan as bouough to watch. In 2 days received NO notifications. Looking at the history list, I’m seeing all the boroughs instead of Manhattan. Last Manhattan call shown is over 12 hrs ago. 2 emails to developer have gotten no response. Am going to drop the renewal
Update incidents more frequently
Unable to set settings or customize notifications.
I can’t complain. I love the app so far. Hopefully in the future you can add pictures or videos of fires. Keep it up guys!!
NYC Firewire has rolled out it’s new app, and updated it already. The main feature is the notifications page which alerts you to incidents. The notifications are pretty quick, while listening to incidents unfold on the scanner they come over the app rapidly. A list of incidents and interactive map appear on the main page. In settings you can choose to be notified by Citywide, Borough, Incident type, or by individual unit. You can also choose alert sounds which include the actual tones and announcements that come over the station PA’s. Growing up and listening to “the City” from skip on a scanner I can say this app gives you all the information you want without fear of missing the action in a timely and professional package.
I like the app. I’m looking forward to the update where we can select certain companies, call types, and boroughs. Keep up the good work.
