New version has issues
If the newest version didn't have an apparent issue on startup I'd rate this a 5-star.
First the criticism. The problem is that when I open the app (newest version) I get a spinning circle an "Loading." That's good for 3-5 minutes. Then it works fine.
As for the other aspects it works great. I only need to save two locations so the limit of five is no issue. I only care about the alerts so I haven't delved into the other features.
I'd read some criticisms of the app but (staying out of political views) the agency is an emergency management agency of the government, not an app developer. The app does it's simple things well. I get my weather and emergency alerts as soon or sooner than other "better" apps. Then I can go into my more advanced weather and radar apps. But this gives me the basics and in a timely fashion. That's all I want and need from this app. It supplements my other apps.
If the loading issue gets resolved soon I'll bump up my rating.
Plain and simple
Does what it is supposed to do.
Since the last update it doesn't work and I can't delete it from my iPhone.
