Be warned and be prepared – and get push notifications for free! AlertsPro is the innovative new app from MeteoGroup which forewarns of severe weather conditions such as storms, heavy rain, thunderstorms, hail, heavy snow, freezing rain and extreme temperatures.
Also behind the best selling WeatherPro and MeteoEarth apps, MeteoGroup is one of the few private weather companies to operate its own Severe Weather Centres – including the very popular www.severe-weather-centre.co.uk. AlertsPro now brings this online warning service direct to your portable device with coverage of most of Europe and the USA (National Weather Service). The warnings are currently available for Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Finland, France, Ireland, Italy, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Sweden, Switzerland, Spain, the United Kingdom and the USA.
A very clear, colour system lets you know up to 48 hours in advance of any impending, severe weather conditions for a country, town, postcode or even a Point of Interest! GREEN indicates there are no warnings, YELLOW signifies a probable event, ORANGE, RED and PURPLE mean there is definitely severe weather on the way and denote the level of intensity.
• NEW: Get push notifications for free whenever there are alerts
• Accurate, dependable warnings
• Warnings clearly displayed on a map
• Widget which displays the latest warnings for the chosen favourite (if there are no current alerts the general weather conditions will be displayed)
• Unlimited favourite locations and ‘Locate me’ function
• Social media share feature
• Current weather maps with radar and satellite layers
When you need more general weather forecast information, AlertsPro provides a direct link to WeatherPro (assuming it is installed).
The Premium option allows you to choose which alert level you would like to be notified of, for each severe weather condition. You can activate the lightning layer, and animate the radar and satellite maps. When you long press on any coloured area on the warning map, further details of the severe weather for that location will be displayed. The premium version also gives users a better viewing experience by removing all ads! One subscription covers Premium services on AlertsPro, MeteoEarth and WeatherPro.

Checking it out
I'm still checking it out but 2 things
1. The comment about the dev not being very good with English... So what! Do you speak every language perfectly? I'm sick of hearing people complain about someone not speaking English good enough. Pompous ****
2. Cold weather is important, but do you really need an alert for that? Doesn't a 5 day or even 10 day forecast show you it in advance already? A rabid dog is out on the loose is something to alert about. A mad snail attack probably isn't going to make the alert system go bonkers. ****Update**** I'll visit back after I've seen the app more. Sorry, but roasting the devs on their English got me a bit riled.
****Update**** Can't zoom in enough on the maps. Need to purchase premium to really use a lot of the features. Many of the free apps will show you the past hour of activity on the map, but this one needs the premium. Not as important but would be nice. If you tap on a warning and it shows you the map, it will not allow you to zoom in or out unless you purchase the premium. All in all, I'll stick with my other apps. Hurricane tracker gives me what I need.
I like the app...it's easy to use and contains accurate information. I wish the map features came with the app without having to pay for upgrade though. Zoom in function would have been nice.
Other than that, love it!
It does what it says and does it well. It keeps me informed and up to date on the weather at locations I need that information.
