Ratings and Reviews
Downloaded without any hesitation or problems. Downloaded it in the early hours of the morning (4am) to avoid problems reported like other users. If not working for you try downloading it on off peak user times. App looks great and is extremely informative. Only gave it 4 stars cause I want to see how it works during a true disaster.
Works As Promised
I'm not sure why everyone is freaking out. It works just fine, it downloads as it's supposed to, it has helpful information. People leaving this a negative review need to realize in events of emergency technology is going to have issues- the store runs out of bread for goodness sake, why do they not consider the overload of people will have its own variety of problems?
I commend the developers for fixing the server issues before the storm actually hits. Stay safe, Texas. ☺️
Worth the download
Very good information and easy to use features including various signals and lights. I like that I can easily make a list of contacts and send the same message regarding my safety or need for help. The app provides step by step prompts for preparing for many different emergency situations. The download took a little patience and retrying but it was well worth it.
