Ratings and Reviews
Another app that i've downloaded also claims that it delivers 'critical alerts', but unlike this app, it prompts me with a 'critical alerts' prompt when setting up the app that can be later toggled on or off in my iPhone's settings. Because this app doesn't have that, and because during the recent AlertReady test, this app didn't override my do not disturb mode, im just wondering how the 'critical alert' system in the app works.

Hi, thank you for your review. During the setup of the app, there's a step to select critical only alerts or critical and advisory alerts. In this app you cannot toggle critical alerts off, you will always receive critical alerts. The only type of alerts that you can toggle off are advisory alerts. You can choose your preference in Settings. Hope that helps.
Always nice to get these warnings
I like the fact it gives me alerts, but why the hell at 4:00 am?
