Too Broad Area
This app does not allow me to select what counties I want to receive alerts from, so I constantly receive alerts for areas that do not even remotely affect me. Last night during a storm I received tons of alerts (50+). This has the opposite desired effect, because I start deleting them without reading them and it becomes a nuisance. Kind of like the "cry wolf" effect... if they would fix this so I could only get alerts for where I live I would give it 5 stars.
Not accurate and cop out responses
This app has been great from the time I first downloaded in 2013. I didn’t care for the new layout but I figured I’d get used to it. I used it a great deal for the radar when I lived in Oklahoma for farming. Then when I moved, I kept it because of how accurate the radar was and the notifications. I have family scattered all over Oklahoma; I have relatives that are terrified of tornadoes so I keep tabs when weather events are happening in their area. Last night I received alerts of excessive heat, lightning, thunderstorms, and flooding for the Guthrie area. At no time did I receive alerts for high wind or the freaking tornado that bounced through there. I emailed the app to ask why the TORNADO notification didn’t come thru, explaining I’d received other notifications. I was told there were notifications and I needed to make sure the notifications option was turned on. I sent a screen shot of the notifications I’d received, asking if they could just have someone look into why some alerts were sent but not others and was told I should have had my news alerts on too.
Be aware this app just isn’t what it used to be and the support isn’t very helpful.
This app is more sleek, and the update has provided so much more useful information. (e.g. sunrise/sunset, hourly wind, temp & precip, current wind, etc) I’ve seen some reviews that say it doesn’t have hourly projections or saved locations, but they must’ve overlooked those features, because they’re there.
I thought there was no way to change the alert settings (like, to pick and choose what I get alerted about.)It took me a week or two but I finally figured out how to change those settings.
Overall, much improved. Great app.
