New version Still has issues

Removed last version installed 1.5.1 and app still says that there is a new version update as soon as possible. 🤷🏻‍♂️

Latest update glitchy

Since the last update the app has been very slow to show fire info and no longer provides detail when I click on fires, only provides weather stations. This needs a fix ASAP!

The latest version (1.5.1) doesn’t respect its in-app notification settings.

It literally started spamming me with all news and alerts almost every minute. I turned off the in-app notification settings and the app still keeps spamming me with news and notifications. The only way to stop this madness is to turn off the notifications for the app in the system settings.
