Alertic - Weather Alerts
By Adam Hayek
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Get all the weather alerts into your notifications centre in advance. You will never be surprised by an unexpected rain again. From slippery ice in the morning to a hurricane in the evening. Alertic always gives you the heads up.
Adding a new location is easy. Just drag the list down and type the name of the desired city. There is no limit to how many locations you have. And you can always toggle the notifications for those that matters. Alertic offers variety of different notifications which can be easily customised. Not interested in sunrise or sunset? Just turn these OFF.
Settings can be revealed by dragging the list of locations up. Set units for time, temperature and wind speed or customise the notifications. Something doesn't work the way expected? Click contact developer at the end of settings and drop us a line.

The app has a great interface and makes information easily accessible but the notifications, which is arguably the whole point of the app, do not work!
The app never displays the prompt asking you to allow notifications and even going into the Settings app and pulling up Alertic doesn't allow you to turn notifications on, the only option listed is just background refresh!
So I give it a middle score of 3 for the design and ease of use, but minus 2 because the "alert" part of Alertic does not work! 😒
I'm on iOS 8.1.3 by the way.
Like the app. Would give a 5 star if I could reorder locations and view tutorial again!
Nice looking app, but the whole point of the app, namely the weather notifications, doesn't work. Needs some serious adjustments.
