App Reviews

  • Liking the app so far but....

    By Searra011596
    I recently moved to West Texas and my county doesn’t have tornado sirens and so I wanted something that will let me know what’s happening. It’s really great at notifying me when there’s a severe thunderstorm or a tornado watch ect. I would like to see an update with the option to have the alarms/sirens override your phone sound. I almost never have my sound turned on, on my iPhone so I wouldn’t be able to hear the warning. It would be nice to have the alarm still go off when your phone is on vibrate.
  • Great app, 1 drawback

    By Aren Spiritus
    This is a fantastic app. Very useful and a great way to keep up with severe weather near a loved one. There is one drawback, however. When a Tornado Warning has been cancelled, I receive the exact same notification sound as a newly activated Tornado Warning. It says “Tornado Warning” and plays a recording of a tornado siren. Even though th warning was cancelled. I suggest this warning cancellation notification not say “Tornado Warning”? It would be better if the audible notification just say “Tornado Warning Cancelled” instead.
  • Sharing information

    By bigdog91455
    Give the app a five star rating but could be a six star if you were able to share it with your family as it happens live during the alert

    By Mustang_1009
    Tornado today destroyed a house a couple of miles from our house. I got the tornado warning from this app before our town tornado alarms went off. We were able to quickly take shelter. Thank you.
  • Great

    By Snook37448
    Have yet to actually put this through it’s paces in regards to how fast and accurate the notifications are but will update once we move to tornado alley next month. Everything else works great!
  • Cannot clear alert list

    By mkt1999
    Gets up to date alerts. You cannot clear the alerts list. It lists ALL PAST alerts given. I have had this app for a month and the list of alerts saved in alert list goes back over a year.
  • Better than Storm

    By Krieg96
    Alerted us in TX to tornado last week, 10 minutes before the Storm app. Lots of updates and good peace of mind knowing the exact location of the threat.
  • Bad monitoring

    By irritated weather monitor
    After two times writing in that they are monitoring my location wrong they still haven’t fixed it. They are confusing my county with a city with the same name as the county. My location services are on and they are still messing it up. Nothing like having a tornado warning at 2am and waking up the whole house to find out it wasn’t even in my county!
  • Awesome app!!!!

    By wolfpup790
    I have had no technical difficulties with this app so far. It is really good and warns you immediately if there is a weather alert. Highly recommend!
