Ratings and Reviews
Get ahead of emergencies, THEY WILL HAPPEN
I downloaded the harbor app when it was released because it was something my family and I really needed to get on top of - but then I procrastinated in getting started on the app and setting up our plan. In early January, we had a toilet overflow that, because of a faulty flapper, wouldn’t stop running and flooded our entire master bathroom, went through the floor, and crashed water through a light fixture onto the first floor and even further into the basement. As it was happening, we knew we needed to turn the water off - but having lived in our house for a little over a year and never having an issue, we had no idea where the water shut-off was. As we were hunting around every surface of the house with flashlights, while water kept coming and doing more damage, I no lie said out loud to my husband, “this is exactly why we needed to set up harbor - it literally tells you to do things like take a picture of where your water shut-off is”. Home emergencies are at least as likely to be like this one - everyday mishaps that turn serious fast - as they are to be big natural disasters, and I only wish I had followed harbor’s simple steps to mitigate them earlier.
New Version is Spot On
The app concept is great with lots of useful information. It’s nice to have lists and plans. It’s useful in gathering everything you need to be prepared, where to keep it, what to have on hand etc. Unfortunately the checklists don’t work. If you check something off it doesn’t update. Coming back to the list results in an unchecked box. It makes it hard to prepare when your lists never update.
Edit: Since my initial review they have fixed the bug making this a highly usable app for preparing for emergencies. Lists now work and make it great for getting together what you need. Now a five star app.

Thank you for the feedback. I will dig in to this issue ASAP and we'll fix it in the next release!
Best Suited for Children’s Education
This app’s format would likely play well if marketed to elementary schools for their students to learn about emergency preparedness. As an ADULT, I find the format condescending and overwhelmingly laborious to walk through. The content seems good, but the app’s UX designers clearly did not research targeted customer demographics when designing the UX. The UX seems like it was designed for young children or possibly by people who spent too much time in lockdown with their young children, deprived of adult interaction.
Friends at Harbor: If you’re hitting revenue targets and profits are pouring in, my perspective (and that of other reviewers that shared similar sentiments) is irrelevant. If you’re not hitting revenue targets, consider going back to the drawing board and designing a UX that attracts the people who will actually pay for this service (aka: adults). Also, the annual subscription of $99 is pretty steep. I struggle with seeing how this app adds perpetual value at that price point, especially with the American Red Cross providing disaster preparedness plans and apps for free. Again, the numbers tell all. If a profitable and growing customer base finds the annual cost reasonable and worthwhile, alternative opinions are moot. Best of luck!
