Looks good

It shows a lot of information on the whole continent regarding fires. My only complaint so far is that the legend is incomplete. There are a lot of icons on the map (various encircled numbers) But there’s no mention of what they indicate. At first I thought it was the number of active fires in an area, then I thought perhaps the county’s numerical identifier…I have nor idea & there doesn't seem to be anywhere to find this information in the apps site.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the feedback. To clarify: the numbers do represent total fires in the area. Orange ones are human-reported fires, purple ones are satellite-detected fires.

Worked great at first, now useless

Like so many others, we’re dealing with fires cropping up constantly right now. We live on a horse farm and need as much possible advance warning as possible if we have to load horses. This app started out great a few weeks ago when I subscribed. I used it everyday. Now, for some reason, it no longer shows any fires anywhere. And, it keeps dumping my subscription. I bought an annual subscription about 4 weeks ago. I have tried every adjustment, I’ve restarted my phone, I’ve dumped and reloaded the app. It restored my subscription once. Now, nothing. I tried contacting the developer and got no response. Nothing left to do but ask Apple to refund. I’m sad because when it worked it was great. Now it’s completely useless.

Amazing app - Exactly what I need

Wow, it is an amazing app!!! Finally an aggregated source to zoom in on a specific fire, or track what's happening in California and across the country, all in one place.

I have been looking for something like this, definitely a keeper on my iphone. Easy to use, keep me informed, as we head into the wildfire season.
