App worked first week but now has errors

When I try to open the app, it gives message for error. I have reinstalled and double checked permission but the problem persists.

Not Enough Important Stuff, Too Much Garbage

In 2020, in the midst of a global pandemic... I got a notice at around 3am about a dangerous heat wave in my area. About 8 hours later- a ‘missing child’ alert. From 2014 and hundreds of miles away.

I honestly don’t know what to tell these developers. In true emergencies I’ve gotten better notifications from the government. Like, loud constant warnings on my phone. And I’m totally confused about missing child alerts. I’ve been driving and seen Amber Alerts on road signs which are hours old, but with no phone notifications. The ones I do get are YEARS old

Get it together, guys, please

Intrusive when it doesn’t need to be

I'm a little leery of granting some unknown company access to my location 24/7 (allowing it only “While Using the App” permission defeats the whole purpose of the app).

While there is the option to program in additional locations, I cannot program in a particular city of interest and save it, unless I also allow the app to access my current location (Always or While Using the App), which I don't want to do.
