Makes YOU look for the Alerts

What a waste of time and effort this app is. After I heard all the AT&T phones in the office buzzing with the test Presidential Alert visible on the lock screen I went back to my desk & checked my phone. No alert. Went & searches out the App, no badge or visual notification. Opened the app, found the alert message inside and had to go read it like checking an email. That's not an alert, GCI. I checked the permissions for the app and everything was set up right for notifications with banners & it's all you, GCI. Dump the app & let the alerts work like they're designed to, coming across as a text notification. If the next monthly alert test doesn't come through as a banner notification on my iPhone 7 Plus on iOS 12, I'll be switching carriers.

Who wrote this trash?!?!

This app is utter garbage. I was traveling last week to Colorado. Despite having access to my location all the time, today it gave me multiple flash flood warnings and tornado warnings, aka seek shelter immediately and watch out for flying cows. Helpful if I was still there, but I’m not. I’m in Seward, AK. I’ve been back in Alaska since Friday, It’s Monday as I gleefully write this review.

I don’t know if this awfulness is the app or GCI’s craptacular service. Either way, do yourself a favor. Pay attention to those around you who have an actual phone company like AT&T or Verizon. If their phone blows up with FEMA tones, check the weather or start looking for Amber Alert kids, because this app certainly won’t be the one to let you know.
