Nice app to help be prepared
A very nice app to get yourself and your family ready. Once a hurricane is heading for you, it is too late to plan. This app gets you thinking of what you need to have and do before it is too late. Easy to use and rather complete. Is it the best thing ever? No, that is why the 4 stars. But it is a solid tool.
Need to design it to set up easier & quicker. should link to my contacts to import selected contacts as emergency contacts. same with meeting places and/or imprt from the map. work information can also be imported from contacts and school information. Make it easier to use & i'd use it.
