Minor bug fix.
Ratings and Reviews
This app is kind of a joke. Primarily because the alert notifications are so absurdly vague. I got one saying merely "Fire!" yesterday. Great, thanks. I hardly ever get transit snafu alerts. I get tons of "flyover" alerts which are totally pointless.
While the email alert system wasn't great either, at least I got more info with a quick glance. This takes several clicks to get into the app to see the actual details of the alert. No, I just want to be able to glance at my phone and see what's going on.
More granular controls
This app really needs more granular controls. I get daily alerts for planned flyovers of aircrafts, as well as missing adults (for all of NYC). Neither of these types of alerts are useful, and I will be uninstalling the app given all the noise they make. You should be allowed to toggle off ALL categories of alerts on a granular level. Forcing people to keep the missing persons alert on, just causes people to uninstall the app (I’d also be more likely to leave it on if it was limited to folks from/last seen in my neighborhood...all of NYC just causes too many notifications, for folks living in areas I never go to).
Useful but buggy
Great useful app but randomly closes when it’s in use...
