Too many alerts

They allow you to select the type of alerts but “Emergency Alerts” are required. However, even tho I only get Emergency Alerts, I often get 5 alerts a day for stupid non-emergency stuff like “Get your COVID booster” and other reminders. The people who run this app and send our alerts need to make sure that Emergency Alerts are true emergencies and not just public service announcements, or segregate those into optional notifications. Also, we should have an option to receive amber/grey alerts.

Needs one more thing to be fixed

The app is overall great, but if you do not go into the app for a couple of days, you get pop-ups in the app of every notification you haven’t seen yet. The pop-up has one button that says OK and another saying Details. The pop-ups prevent you from navigating to notifications that you want to read. The developers need to introduce a Dismiss All button or just eliminate the pop-ups and rely on users having notifications appear on their banner instead.

Best app NYC has published

My 5-star rating is certainly graded on a curve, for city-developed apps. But it actually works and is very helpful at times, as long as the people issuing the alerts are thoughtful about what they push out. There are other apps for traffic and transit issues, but this is a good one to have for those odd alerts that you’ll be glad to have when you need it. If you live or work in NYC, it’s worth installing.
