Meh

Needs some work. I get an alert but doesn’t give specific location.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your feedback. Sorry to hear the SaskAlert app is not meeting expectations. If you can contact at us at saskalert@gov.sk.ca, we'd like to talk about how we can improve the location identification.

Pretty Good

The app is pretty hood and relatively easy to use. The only con I have at the moment is that I cannot update the app no matter how I try (wifi or data) it just will not update (I use an iPhone 8).
