Ratings and Reviews
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?

Warnings now delayed and app feels abandoned
After 5 years of using this application I am now at the point where I must delete it. The app itself has not been updated in years. This has resulted in times where the app becomes unstable and crashes. I can overlook this however the extreme increase in time that it now takes to receive an alert is not acceptable. During its prime I would receive an alert within 30 seconds of my weather radio. Last week we had tornadoes and it took 14 minutes from the time I heard my radio alarm to receive a notification from this app. The FEMA app which I have installed so that I can receive special weather statement notifications went off right away. It seems as if each time we get severe weather the alerts continue to become more and more delayed. Until this company gets their act together you are better off looking elsewhere.
Glitchy App that apparently hasn’t been updated in 2 years
The UI has glitchy and distracting menu animations that cannot be disabled. In addition to the superficial, I also encountered a bug that affects core functionality. When attempting to add my parent’s home address to monitor, the app couldn’t find it. When I tried to drag a pin to their home on the map from a nearby city, the map glitched out and showed two pins but would not let me drag either of them to their location for which I wanted to receive alerts. I see that the app has not been updated in 2 years. After enjoying RadarScope Pro for years, I didn’t doubt this purchase for a second. Now that I’ve spent money on the app and the corresponding subscription, I hope the WDT developers give these issues some much needed and overdue consideration.
