It’s great but...

It’s great for all of us but, I think a lot of people are kids who have the app. I think a lot of people have the app because people want to know if police say there names. Me I just want it to listen to and not to know if my name gets said. So I think it’s a great app and stuff all my friends have it, but I think that it’s should be 18+ because little children might have it and that could be really bad. My mum even has this app 😂 she loves it so much. I was so like to my friends has any of the people you know got said.

This app is great! 🙂

useless at best ,

Just one thing needed

There needs to be capabilities to record as an audio file on Iphone like i can do with my samsung with this app, not sure if thats possible or not with the apple systems.
its my single only complaint.

* Note to users - for thepeople in here whinging about lack of emergency services in certain states in OZ or blaming this app itself, its best you learn about how all this works and operates - the volunteers, the hosts, the feeds, before blaming any developer.

Great app

Good app, well laid out and easy to use. Was very useful last week during the bushfires, and no doubt will be in the future - though keep in mind not all fire services across all states are on here... so check that out before paying for the pro features.
