Don't count on this when a storm comes
Tornados on the ground reported on the channel, but turn to the app and expect to see the same coverage so you can stay up on what is happening. Nope! You get old taped information and news. When storms are happening people need the info now, not your commercials, just share the weather information. You own the content, stream it out like you promote every day. Contact the FCC and push for FM chips to be enabled so you can get live information in an emergency. Apps like this could work, but the owners need to care enough to make sure they do what they saw.
This app is so bad
If there is a really bad storm (like right now) for me anyways it just to a gray screen on the radar this is a terrible app! I need something i can rely on if a really bad storm is comeing
It doesn't update with tornado warnings
What is a point of a tornado app that doesn't show real time tornado warnings? All TV channels show a tornado on the ground and the app says no watches or warnings. Not reliable.
