    Cannot find known disasters. One gets lost in excess entries that are seemingly not culled according to date of last real threat. Don't give up! Improve!!

    Was good until Tasmanian bushfires then overrun with twitter feeds and news items including sports results. Uninstalling as there is a better app available

    It doesn't scroll and cannot be rotated. The alerts presented cannot be selected for more information. Worst of all when they contain a URL you cannot click on it. VIC ones just give a town and street and no information on why you wouldn't go there. Government wastage at its cost plus best. The purpose behind the app is mystifying especially when it warns you that some evens may not be disasters.
