App Reviews

  • Scammers and thieves!!

    By MoralesJC
    Don't give up to this scamming group they pay there execs top dollar and eat great food and feed people disgusting food especially like they did in Texas, they also keep most of the funds donated for years and don't give it to what it was mean for , the people in need. See if for yourselves in videos where they ask too advisors of the Red Cross avoid the questions of how much their executives take. Modern day thieves!!! Get knowledgeable!!
  • Multiple Apps that could be combined into 1

    By Travis
    In theory a good idea. And I like the “I’m Safe” feature. Living in New Orleans, it would be nice to know that parents won’t worry. However, there are multiple apps that could be combined into one.
  • Dint work with Irma??

    By Lola_2011
    I literally had Hurricane Irma on top of my island, I dint had electricity so i couldn't watch the news to see what's going, I try the app and it doesn't load whatsoever. I have now Hurricane Maria tomorrow, let's see if it works from tomorrow onward.
  • F THIS!

    By Emi & Pusheen
    It keeps crashing every time I use it! What a ripoff!
  • Puzzled

    By Picky CPA
    This is pretty much a useless app to track a hurricane. Need to be able to filter shelter information (I.e., remove, filter by location, etc.).
  • Fix the app please

    By Ba5hir
    The then crashing recently Please fix it soon as possible
  • Informational Hurricane App

    By KJV Admirer
    This app is very informational and helpful!
  • Great resource!!!! Used during hurricane Irma!

    By AppAddictNinja
    This app is an excellent one-stop resource for somebody going through their first hurricane or if they haven't gone through one for several years and need a quick reference or starting place. It has information for before, during, after, and "Plan Ahead" of a hurricane. Spot on advice about knowing the diff. between watches and warnings, don't waste time taping windows, and even lists for suggested supplies. If used with Storm Radar and the Weather Channel's app you'll be a lot safer and more knowledgeable about hurricane preparedness and safety as well as getting important information at the literal tip of your finger. One thing I'd really like to see is addition of information for actually boarding up when preparing. - The most informative resource I found for boarding up once the news suggested we should was found after a long time searching online, no thanks to bad information out there. A lot of time which is essential before a hurricane was wasted searching and searching. What I did fine was poorly linked to on NOAA's site and even then seemed to go down or be deleted when I went back to reference it. Please add information on boarding as part of your information. Please?? Nothing super detailed. Just the suggested plywood thickness, what kind of sheet metals would do well as a substitute, how to attach it to your home, what kind of screws for what kind of surface, etc. Actually in general please elaborate or expand on information that may not be expected to be a given to people who have already been through hurricanes. I remember my first time being in the crosshairs of a hurricane and finding detailed and explained information was hard there's so much out there and a lot of it bad. Everybody has short/simplified lists, but no details! Sometimes more than one sentence is needed to explain things. Other than being able to hide shelters locations on the map temporarily to better see the radar or map and adding more explanations or even videos to show a how-to (would be handy for boarding) I used this app as one of my hurricane go-to apps!! This for information and some alerts. I also used Storm Radar for the radar, alerts, detailed official warnings, and map that could show all kinds of warnings, alerts, and various details on the radar map. The official Weather Channel app for live tv feeds for in-person updates and meteorologist's opinions on what to expect. Between this app, Storm Radar, and the live feed from the official Weather Channel app hurricane Irma didn't catch my unprepared and didn't give me any nasty surprises! I was certainly safer and I truly appreciate apps like this exist!! THANK YOU from a Floridian who used this app as part of their emergency kit!!
  • RedCross = Scam

    By 1starSam
    Do not support The Red Cross! They are a business first, then a "charity" last! Please do little research before donating to these scammers! Not even half of what is raised goes to victims!
