Ratings and Reviews
Awesome but could be better
This app it awesome but I won’t give 5 stars. Because it should give you notifications of warnings or have a alarm of high heat index to tell you you need to get inside.
Good overall but needs a few tweaks
It works well. A previous review had an issue with the weather data not matching weather apps, but that is easily edited onscreen so it isn't an issue to me.
I do wish you could input geocoordinates, for the location. This is an issue for me and my workers because we work in somewhat remote locations. Maybe in the next release
App is worth downloading
The app is great. Need to understand that the heat index is measured in shade with a light wind and may not be exact according to where someone is working. If in direct sunlight it will be 10-15 degrees hotter potentially. A good tool to generally understand the heat index and begin safety precautions. Wish it forecasted out a week.
