What's New in Version 2.8.3
Bug fix for the open shelters and where to talk to FEMA in person.
Good app that needs to fix repeated alerts.
This is one of the few apps I use for notifications, as it used to provide great occasional alerts. Now that we're in the summer, I'm getting 4-5 Red Flag alerts a day, every day for weeks, which doesn't make them seem real. Sometimes I literally get the same alert 2 or 3 times, mere seconds after the previous identical alert. They need to fix sending the same alert multiple times, and let people opt out of certain types of alerts. I've disabled alerts for now because this bug is so irritating.
Still won't hold locations
As another review mentioned, the app routinely deletes my saved locations and I have to re-add them. I only save two counties so it's not too bad, but I shouldn't have to do that.
Apart from that, basic or not it gives me the local weather alerts as fast or faster than other apps. It's simple and basic but I get the alerts as soon as they are issued. When the locations are saved that is. ;-)
Late summer in Los Angeles, we have very low humidity and strong winds. All adds up to fire hazard in hill country.
So, this afternoon, my iPhone went crazy with 10 (yes, 10!) alerts all issued at the same time, advising me of fire danger in the rural areas of this and the neighboring counties.
Guess what else? I COULDN'T DISMISS THESE ALERTS!! My phone went nuts for at least 10 minutes. Couldn't even read the alerts because the app kept nagging me about "new" ones.
(Really?? Just do ONE @&#$!! alert, and KEEP IT SHORT!)
