What's New in Version 3.30
Minor bug fixes and improved performance.
Fair to partly cloudy
This app leaves out or they don't know of other reported events that happens as the earthquake in Northwest Tennessee on Feb. 2017 never showed up on this app ! There need to be a archives search on this app for back information, if you want to track back history. Nothing reported on nuclear waste of Japan Monitoring or other sites. No links to lake or river pollution levels that each U.S. state documents and reports. I probably want keep this app much longer ! If you get this app opp out of notices an alert ! You'll get pop ups all the time ! You can turn off in the app also !
Cool & faster too!
Update has made it faster. Still a bit too many notifications, but I have families all over & use this app everyday to see what may be going on. I'd still rather get more alerts, than missing an important one. Thanks guys.
Really helpful to see what's happening out there, especially when I'm on the road.
