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 a state and county. This app also issues reminders for tasks such as replacing batteries and checking smoke detectors however these can be turned off in the settings. 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.
It's not the sleekest app ever made but it's very efficient with its space and simple to use. They provide location based alerts. I've received a few and they are easy to read and clear. Great app to have simply for the notifications.
This is all I have ever wanted it of an app. Clean design, does a simple job and does it well. Reminds me when it's time to do those preparation things I don't know how many times I've ignored them. Has the info I need. It's just great!
