App has gone downhill, not sure if it will get better


When I first got this app, it was really really cool. However over the past years since I first got it it slowly started to go downhill. I am glad it works with voiceover, Apple screen reader, very well. However, as time has gone by, the alerts have been less and less. For example yesterday we had a bunch of rain, and another weather app told me we had a flood watch, but this one did not. I wish the developer was still working on this app, he has not been updated and I believe almost 2 years, since I OS 9. Very very sad. There are so many possibilities for this app to develop. I have many feature request in mind, but I am not sure if I want to suggest him; since this app has not been touched in a long time. The lightning alerts feature is really cool, but shouldn’t the money for those subscribe to it go towards the development of this app? I hope the app gets some love soon. I am going to have to get rid of it for now, until the alert system has been fixed, in the app given more love. I will come back to it in a while just to see if anything has been done still have my fingers crossed an app like this could go a long long way. Maybe I will post my feature requests to the developer to see if I get a direct response. I mean, do these reviews really get a read?

Great App


I have had this app pretty much from the start, and it works well. Alerts work great often before the news puts them out, lightning alerts work great, and I cannot say enough good things about this app. Love it!! If you are looking for a weather app that works well 99% of the time this is the app to get. I cannot say 100% because no matter what app is being used for weather alerts it can miss something for various reasons the biggest being no data or wifi connection.

My go-to app for sever weather


I bought this app 6 years ago when I was traveling through multiple state with tornado warned storms. It still actively use it. I always receive warnings before the local news stations put their warnings out. Apply the setting as you want the app to behave and it's the best out there! Spot on!
