FlashAlert Messenger allows you to view local news, and receive push notifications of emergency alerts (and in some cases, sports scores) from FlashAlert Newswire. You may use it as a stand-alone news viewer or link it to your FlashAlert Messenger account for emergency alert push notifications from the schools, police agencies or organizations you have subscribed to. If you have trouble attaching the app to your account, it may be because push notification is turned off on your phone. For more details, go to www.flashalertnewswire.net/attachbutton.html
This app has been updated by Apple to use the latest Apple signing certificate.
Rebuilt application with a brand new interface. App should no longer hassle you for being offline when switching between wifi and cellular on newer devices.
Ratings and Reviews
No push notifications
Also, every time I log into the app, I receive an error that says, “Your device does not appear to be subscribed. Please try re-attaching your account.” It still shows the alerts for my school, though, and also displays a badge on the app icon when alerts get broadcast, and I’ve tried “re-attaching” my account several times, but the error persists. I’m guessing since the app hasn’t been updated in 2 years that it probly won’t ever be, but here’s hoping.
Register your account online and log in on the app
I would have rated 0 stars if I could. The registration process for this app is horrible! If you try to register a new account on the app, then you get in an impossible situation where you get brought back to the start screen, but no mention as to why you were not able to correctly register. I discovered, you can avoid this by going online to their website to register. Then, log in on the app. The whole app is not graphically pleasing and looks circa 1999. Sad that an emergency app is so poorly created both in its registration process and its visual appeal.
No text option??
Thanks for taking away the texting option that has always been available before. Because of that my kindergarten niece stood outside in well below freezing temps for a long time because people don’t take the time to check their emails before school. So unless you’re awake at 4:30 when the call is made, there’s a really good chance you’ll miss the FlashAlert. Not cool!
Developer Response ,
Sorry for your problems and the late response. SMS texting is still available by putting in your cell number in as an email address on the website. However, the cellphone email to text gateways were getting throttled by the cell providers, so messages were arriving very late.
