As a disclaimer, I should probably note that, although I had the opportunity to beta-test the CrisisAlert app, I don't consider myself particularly tech-savvy. Having said that, I found the app to be a very useful and accessible research tool. I think CrisisAlert would be useful not just to humanitarian professionals, but also to international relations and other professional fields requiring a ready reference - and mobile - application to inform their research/information needs.

I particularly liked the country profile pages, and was impressed with the depth and breadth of information accessible (at a finger swipe!) for ready reference. From a research perspective, it helps cut down on the time that I might otherwise have had to spend having to look up that data for myself. I imagine for humanitarian (or other professionals) often working under time constraints in country contexts that they may be unfamiliar with, that in itself would be an invaluable tool to have at hand. I also appreciated the embedded reference links provided to the original sources. The top stories/news updates are an ideal complement to the more in-depth country information, vis-à-vis offering a more real-time snapshot of current/ongoing developments.

Used on a daily basis


I am a doctor working in global health. I check this app daily for updates, news and info. This app is literally vital for my decision making, intel gathering and staying current on humanitarian events. Keep up the great work and thanks!
