What's New in Version 3.0.5
Fixed a speech rate bug on iOS 9.
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?
The weather alerts are extremely accurate
This application excelled at sending you timely weather alerts. The alert notifications almost always show up less than 5 minutes after they are issued by NOAA.
The alerts also only show up for me if they are actually in my vicinity. To often other weather apps send alerts for the whole county, which can mean an alert even if the event is many mikes away from me. Weather Radio only shows me alerts that are in my vicinity and pertinent to me, which means I really pay attention when I see the notification. I know the weather event is going to affect me.
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!
