Ratings and Reviews
Shouldn’t be in the US App Store
But more importantly it’s a dumb app. Many areas aren’t selectable unless you know the name the developer uses. A good example are Indian reservations. They’re still in that particular city and it’s missed.
It’s imperative to pull this app until one can press and select the areas one wishes to be notified!!
Without this, it’s terrible programming and more or less useless. Who wants to spend 15 minutes selecting a particular area or district. Uninstalled.

Sorry to hear Alertable did not meet your expectations. Locations are only available in Canada at this time.
Filled the need for US travel to Canada
I’m going to stick up for this app. We were going to Montreal from the US and I wanted an app that would give me weather alerts while there. WeatherCAN isn’t available in the US store but Alertable is. So there is a good reason to have it in the US store.
Got several alerts including severe thunderstorm watches and warnings as well as a heat warning.
It will remain on my phone ready for the next trip into Canada.
Did not include any city in CALIFORNIA?!
The most populated state in the USA and not one city, not even Sacramento, shows up in the search. Fix please.😠😠
