"Monitor all your important locations!" NOT
Looking for an app that can tell me realtime if anything is happening in the Azores Islands as I have a good deal of family there, as well as my fathers childhood home right on the coast of Sao Lourenço ... my fear has always been with hurricanes & tropical storms, tsunami, & volcanic activity ; & so I was referred to this app. Imagine my confusion, being told there was no results to my search while trying to add "Azores Islands" as a location to monitor ... they seem to include Madeira on the map, but no Azores... & everytime I tried to add a city in Portugal or Madeira (Lisbon, for example) it would give me Lisbon New York USA & all related search terms IN THE US -- & wouldn't allow me to monitor any part or portion of Portugal!!! What the heck?!! This app is pointless. I know all too much what's happening in the US, it's being shoved in my face from every direction; what I was looking for was information on THE WORLDS HAPPENINGS we don't hear about normally. Plz resolve this silly flaw
If this Emergency Alert app is supposed to be all-purpose, the Wildfire functionality needs to be beefed up. Unfortunately the Red Cross “Wildfire” app no longer works under the new IOS, and, this all-purpose Emergency app doesn’t handle fires adequately.
Think about the Napa area fires this last October-what the functionality the app could have had that would have made things better for people who, it turned out, had little or no warning to evacuate from the fast-moving fires.
Good for various alerts but needs work
Good for various alerts like fires, snow, rain, earthquakes, hurricanes, etc., but needs work.
It prompts you for people you care about in a particular town that you specify. But if you exit the app then those contacts are lost. Same with the “I’m safe” feature - great idea but in an emergency I want the contacts loaded and ready so I can just send loved ones the message that I’m alright. Those contacts aren’t saved either. Otherwise good app.
