What's New in Version 1.2
- fixed refresh issue after push notifications
- iOS 5 support
Decent App, but it needs more RSS feeds to be complete
This is a reasonable App, but it seems to miss a lot of events for some reason (like the Virginal Earthquake) and large California brush fires because it only uses Inciweb and not CalFire RSS feeds (as an example). Better than nothing but don't count on it as the end all be all for this sort of information.
UPDATE 1.3 seemed to have broken everything, but it really didn't. If you go into the settings, deselect everything then close the app and restart it and reselect all the notifications that you want and reset your location and stop/restart the app things work again. I was only getting badges with no notifications before doing this.
Worked at first
Worked for the first week I had it, now I get alerts but the screen won't load with the alert info. This error finally went away with a fix. I agree the info needs a method to be able to clear old alerts. I finally turned off the Homeland security alerts. Well , thought I had turned off the alerts.... This thing gives you what alerts IT wants you to have! I only get two of the five I have selected, but it gives another 4 I didn't select! Pretty much a piece of crap. Since they are not fixing it I'm going to uninstall it.
Alerts work Wonderful
I'm amazed how quickly the weather & earthquake alerts are! I do wish however they would upgrade so I could control what size earthquake to report as there are so many these days over 5 magnitude that it goes off frequently! Also Homeland Security has been the same for 365 days, seriously? But overall, great ap! Very pleased here! :)
