An excellent resource for alerts.
I discovered this application while looking for a replacement to the now discontinued weather alert USA application. This is a very simple app however when it comes to the task of providing severe weather alerts I can say the notifications are almost instantaneous. A lot of times the alert arrives on my phone within about 30–60 seconds of being heard on my Weather Radio. This app does not have GPS functionality however you can set up to five locations. Each location is set by selecting your state and county. For voiceover users I have been able to navigate this application with no issues. So far the only thing I can find that I would like to see changed is that the application uses the standard default Apple notification sound. Considering the types of alerts this program is providing it would definitely be better to have its own dedicated sound instead of the default. Otherwise this is an excellent app and I can definitely recommend it.
Great app great app great app
Wrote heading 3 times because all my alerts arrive 3 times. Unfortunately it becomes the alert that cries wolf. Once fixed it will return to awesome app. I can watch weather alerts for 5 locations. Would like that increased. Watch where my kids live, watch home and places on vacation. Agreed sound should be unique for alert. More like EAP but not obnoxious.
I love using this for alerts. However the only thing I'm not a fan of is the "dial 911" thing. I accidentally tapped it and it dialed 911.
