Alerts work, settings options don't

Successfully communicates operating status daily, whether you want it to or not! I have my settings configured to NOT provide a nightly alert and it does anyway. I also have the individual alerts sets to NOT alert me if status is OPEN. Yet every night a get an alert that it's open the next day. Assuming that most people are primarily interested in closures for weather or other reasons, you should probably make the settings work so that you can actually only be notified of closures.

Good, but needs a bit of polishing.

This app does everything you would hope it would do. The data is accurate and is updated at the same time as the website.

However, work needs to be done to correct the notification settings. I’m using the current version and the list of available notifications I can receive is duplicated. I’ve turned off “Open” in three different places, but still the notifications come. It got to the point that I just turned off app notifications all together.

Since March, sending open status almost daily

I’ve had this app for years without issue and ever since our last day off due to weather this app has been sending me open statuses almost daily. It stops for a few days and then starts again. I’ve gotten them on Saturday’s so not just M-F. The settings tab never opens up, the app just thinks and thinks and then settings tab goes away completely. I reported this in May initially. Please fix this app! Thank you.
