Severe Weather Warnings and Watches
This is my first time using any app to access continental US severe weather warnings and watches in one place. I may seem excited, and I am a little bit giddy. It’s like getting a new toy. So bear with me as I extol the virtues of the app as a noob to weather stuff. This app is much easier to read (font size) than using an iPhone 6 web browser to view SPC, NOAA or NWS websites for first-hand info. I like being able to see the continental US radar view. I know little about forecasting, but I know enough to recognize that this app includes visual tools that forecasters use to discuss weather.
It has it all—or almost all. I might need a different app for winter weather season. I don’t know enough about weather to know if I am missing out on satellite imagery showing my location in the Midwest. The app does give continental US and regional stills from Tropical Tidbits: wind, barometric pressure lines, and other nifty weather nerd graphics. Since I don’t do forecasting, stills are just fine, even if it would be cool to play around with model future progressions. I do get what I wanted, after all: current severe and life-threatening tornado warnings and watches with radar progression images. Maybe I’ll even become a hurricane weather enthusiast, too.
I’ve had a heck of time trying to find a reliable hurricane tracker that quickly gives relevant information and isn’t considered a premium feature. (I mean, really? Tracking a hurricane is a “perk” and not a “completely necessary thing for my safety”?) The app is fairly bare bones, but it’s well designed and makes it easy to find current and historic data. I highly recommend giving it a download if you live in a hurricane zone!
Too many notifications.
I would have given this 5 stars because it’s awesome with alerting you of storms and tornadoes... the only downside and the reason I’m giving it 2 stars is because I’ve gotten 40 notifications in the last 10 mins for the same two alerts. Tropical storm watch and hurricane watch. There only needs to be one alert for both, unless it extends or updates then send another one. But I’m telling you 22 alerts for Tropical storm watch at 6:15 is TOO much. Plus 17 alerts for Hurricane watch at 6:15. There only needs to be one alert for each. But its happened in the past for flood advisors and never stops. It just never stops. FIX THIS.
Developer Response ,
My significant apologies for this. It is currently being worked on and will be resolved ASAP. If you experience this again, it would be great if you could open the app, go to the Settings screen and then tap the 'Report problem with app' button at the bottom.
