Ratings and Reviews
Have used this app before and had no problems. However, the new version gives me a screen with tips only and I have tried to download many times but still just get a tips page and nothing else - whats happened???
Frozen tip page bug
I too am having the same issue with the app freezing on the tip page
Is a ‘fix’ intended to be released?
I work within the Australian Emergency Services. This app. covers all kinds of global happenings, from localised flooding and high winds thru to earthquakes and volcano activity. I love it. A suggestion tho: are you able to make available a setting to provide region specific info if required.
