What's New in Version 2.4
Minor bug fixes
Improved alerting from Pelmorex Alerting Services
Needs some improvements
I really like the idea of this app, and applaud the Red Cross for making it a reality. My two complaints:
1. The geographic area covered is very large, so I get frequent reports that don't apply to me. I would like to be able to choose a more specific area so I only get warnings that apply to my city and surrounding area.
2. For some reason, I get every warning twice.
Overall, a great app. But, the storm warnings are more annoying than reall useful. Every alert comes in twice, and the updates aren't really updates. Sometimes the alert is just a bunch of #####. Getting the same information every 20 minutes does not help.
Good content. Tests are buggy. When I answer correctly it says I'm incorrect and that the right answer is the one I selected.
