Customer Reviews

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 !

Eye Opening App

I don't know about other people but sometimes I get "tunnel vision" and tend to focus more on what is going on in my little corner of the world. This app has been an eye opener for me in terms of the bigger picture about calamities occurring all over our world. It is sobering to see so many disasters and makes me much more appreciative of each day. The app is easy to navigate and very informative. It's definitely a keeper.

Not impressed

I had this app a few years ago it was great back then. When the big earthquake hit Montana this year, I remembered this app and quickly went to download it for future events. It's been a while now and Montana currently has 175,000 acres on fire right now and not one notification has popped up. I see notifications of tornados two years ago and fires in other states but nothing but dry weather conditions warnings. This app is useless to me if I can't have current events for my state. Just about to delete this app unfortunately.
