    Used to love this app. Had indicative distances between my location and the incident / observation / warning area displayed in the list. That is better than suburb name imo although both would be great. Links to maps are nice but not useful at a glance if you smell smoke and want to quickly see if it's within cooee. Kms back and I'll 5 star it.

    This was great, I use this for fire notification as I live in bush, and when an alert popped up I could look at the list of alerts and choose which were important to me by suburb - now it only shows distance, so I have to open every event in my watch area to see which is relevant. I also can't choose which type event in the events list, so I now have to scroll down past warnings to see the incide
