This app is very useful! Works every time and the text alerts are fantastic. This makes it easy to avoid getting your car towed and save $$$! The typing in address feature and the map by day features make this complex snow emergency protocol easy to navigate.

Thanks City of Minneapolis!

Some reviewers expect way too much out of a version 1.0 app. Yeah, it might lack notifications but Mpls does a fantastic job getting the word out in so many different ways already - the city has SMS and email alerts for snow emergencies, so yes you can live without a TV or radio, and still get direct, automated alerts if you want to. The description clearly states it lacks alerts, but fails to indicate if there are future plans to add this (which, admittedly, would be nice), which one could only hope. So lighten up, at least our City cares enough to try to reach out in so many different ways even though their app could use some work.
