App Reviews

  • Was a ‘5’ / Now a ‘2’ at best

    By Velocitoro
    Of course I have used this app for years and it has performed flawlessly (and I mean that), but never bothered to give it a rating. It is only now that it has become so slow and glitchy that I bother to finally rate it. 1) I launch the app in the middle of a thunderstorm and deluge and the display at the same location shows not cloud in the sky. 2) If and when there is thunderstorm display, random blocks or quadrants of the display are blank. 3) The ‘Play / Pause’ display function may or may not decide to comply though its icon says otherwise. 4) Should the ‘Play’ display function decide to actually comply, the time-stamped storm movement may just stop in its movement or most likely it will cycle ONCE and then STOP rather than repeating through the prior 30-45 minute time span as it once did. 5) After having purchased the purportedly full app in good faith, the now optional ‘Future’ function for an ongoing monthly fee belies the app’s public service quality because if the technology to provide the information is already existent (ie, available to and paid for by the issuer), then it should be incorporated into the app for its existing clientele. Bottom line: Just get it together or it will be money wasted as people move on to another, more reliable, better app. Thanks for reading...Velocitoro
  • Ok, so I was wrong

    By Scoot2mtns
    This is an update from my last review. If you know where to look, the features I liked about previous versions are still there. So I up-rated my review to 4 stars. The problem is that finding the forecast stuff isn’t straightforward in this version. In this version there is a fairly large button with the options “Current” and “Future”. Click on Future and basically what you get is a “Pay Up” message. To get the old forecast features, click on the little, tiny “More” in the bottom right, up comes a screen with current data plus sunrise/sunset. There is nothing to indicate that scrolling down will get you the forecast for the week that you were looking for. No slide bar shows until you actually start scrolling. Original review - Title: Last update turned a winner into a loser Great app but it’s really not free. With the last update it will only show you what’s happening right now. I can open the door for that. To get any forecast data (i.e., what’s going to happen), you have to buy a subscription. And it’s not clear that will even get you an ad free experience.
  • Subscription features

    By kRashkin81107
    I’ve read a lot of reviews that have the same complaint I’m about to make, and I’ve also read the developer responses to the reviews. I previously paid for this app years ago. And I get that the new version has all the same features as the previous version plus a few extra features. But the new features that require an additional monthly subscription, I don’t think it’s something that you should even be asking for an additional monthly charge for. Just have one flat fee of a few bucks to either upgrade to those features or raise the price of the initial cost of the app by a buck or two. I think the monthly charge to see future radar and lightning strikes is ridiculous. I would love to see future radar (could care less about lightning strikes), but I’m not paying .99 a month for it and I don’t think it’s fair to charge a monthly fee to see that. It doesn’t seem worth $12 a year, but I really would love to just have that feature if I could pay a couple dollars to add it if it’s that important to make a profit off of the future radar feature (lame). Otherwise I enjoy the app. Just think the extra subscription is ridiculous.
  • Pretty good app.

    By Aaaaaaaaaaaamr
    Just got this but so far so good. Kept us up to date on the latest winter storms. Hopefully works as good on summer storms. Seems to use a lot of battery. Would like to see road emergency levels if possible. Since last update it's terrible. Radar takes forever to load if it ever does. Right now its a waste of money. Thinking of finding something else. Will not advise friends and family to get this. Last update is useless. I live in a flood area and no longer receive audible warnings. As long as i am awake i know water is rising. If in bed guess i will just drown. Keep up the great updates and no one will be alive to buy your app. Why would i want a weather app that doesn't notify me. Hope a tornado warning is never issued at night. Think about us and not your pocket. Ok got notifications back and then another update In May--- lost notifications AGAIN. What gives? Really starting to rethink this app AGAIN.
  • My severe weather lifeline

    By Wxnow
    As noted by the developer, they restored the missing watches/warnings/advisories and even added some that they didn’t used to have. Some bulletins were removed in an app update. Storm Shield addressed the concern promptly. Had a warning tonight pop right up on my phone and watch. This app makes following the weather in tornado alley simple. The nice thing is you can plug in multiple locations to receive alerts for. So if you live in the north part of town but work in the south part of town, you can get location specific alerts for both. It’s perfect for keeping track of the weather where older relatives live—if I see a “blizzard watch” pop up for my parents, I know to check-in on them. This is my go-to app! ——————————————————————-
  • Almost Everything I Want

    By Gamer3475
    This app is so close to being perfect. I really like the radar and the severe box overlays. The severe alerts are also great; I’ve never seen so many choices for different alerts. I also like how you can easily tap any alert box anywhere and see the alert details. The only reason I took off two stars is for the subscription. I hate apps that have a subscription versus a one time payment. Why do you think your app is so great that we have to keep paying for it over and over again? I don’t understand this model. Just let me pay for it once and be done. This isn’t cable tv. I really think I would purchase a one time IAP to get the storm tracks feature. This is the only feature I think the app in general is missing. But I would never get a subscription from an app. Just let me pay you once and be done. Don’t be greedy!
  • Great app but needs improvement

    By awargo4
    This app is great and has many useful features. However, it is ridiculous that I have to open my phone to figure out the location of a weather alert when the app could easily announce the location with the alert. Also, it’s ridiculous that a weather alert app lacks the option to make severe weather alerts audible even when the phone is on silent. If third party alarm clocks can do it, you can do it. Finally, it would be nice to have the option to select whether chosen alerts apply to all locations or only the home location *individually*. Currently, it can’t be done at all. I want to know if severe weather is near my family. I don’t want all of the weather alerts for them that I have turned on for my home.
  • Go back to the start

    By not happy kn the motor city
    This app once was amazing, when you went to options and selected which specific alert you wanted to know about it would come through even stating the problem, it could have been a thunderstorm warning, tornado warning or what ever you choose for the alert. Now it comes through as a weather alert, you don’t know what it is anymore. Not to mention it now comes through after a storm had hit and it then goes off. It’s also laggy since they’ve change it to the lighting and future feature (to pay for) on the app. Extremely difficult to load the current weather if I’m looking to see how far away a storm is from where I’m at. It’s not just my phone or carrier either, I have friends who have the app with different phones and carriers and all does the same thing.
  • App works great

    By Kevin539
    This app literally nearly saved my family’s life when a tornado struck our neighborhood two years ago, and was very helpful during hurricane Irma. One of the nice features is if you allow it, it will track you so if you are on a trip it will give you up to date info on all sorts of potential hazards. From floods to fires and everything in between. There are so many hazards listed in the app you may want to turn off some of the notifications. Just to give you a heads up it’s going to make you jump the first time it goes off it’s loud and seems to go off when I’m the most relaxed or asleep!
  • New Updates And Pay Features Bad

    By Mandyr735
    I’ve used this app for years and really liked it. It was great for seeing local radar and the general trajectory of storms. Previously, the radar showed the storms moving and the projected path and continued severity of the storm systems, generally only for the coming 20-30 minutes, but it was there. During hail and heavy thunderstorms, it was useful. Now, any kind of future casting is an in-app purchase, billed on a monthly basis. Let’s forget that any of us using this app have already BOUGHT the app in the first place. Way to nickel and dime us all!! I’ll find another real-time radar app st this point. The in-app purchased of basic uses while the touting of “free inclusions” of features that the typical everyday user doesn’t care about has left a very sour taste in my mouth. Avoid this app.
