Use this application to receive a real-time update of the US National Threat Level from the Department of Homeland Security.
The Color-coded Threat Level System is used to communicate with public safety officials and the public at-large through a threat-based, color-coded system so that protective measures can be implemented to reduce the likelihood or impact of an attack.
Needs a nicer UI
I see most folks are too stupid to accept that there ARE folks out there charged with responding to changes in the alert level. Public health and safety, hospitals, first responders and so on. Keep your personal views and politics out of a fair review children... A better UI would be nice though.
I've gotten laughs every time I've shown this to someone. It's pretty useless without context (which describes the threat level system in general I guess), but this app is worth downloading for comedic value alone.
Crap. Both the app and the idea behind it.
A weather app would've been much more useful. If it rains, at least there's something we can do about it. But if the threat level goes up, what are we supposed to do? Throw on our kevlar and kiss the misses goodbye for the workday? It's a political scare tactic, nothing less.
-1 for pointless app and even more pointless color-coded threat system.
-1 for bad graphics.
