**** What is MyWARN? ****

MyWARN is an app that delivers critical National Weather Service severe weather risks, watches and warnings to your smartphone based on your location.

**** How It Works ****

MyWARN constantly monitors the latest tornado, severe thunderstorm and flash flood watches and warnings from the National Weather Service. It uses the location services in your device to notify you immediately when an alert is issued for where you are.

**** FEATURES ****

* Only Alerts For Where You Are: Legacy warning systems, like sirens and NOAA Weatheradio, issue warnings for entire counties. But National Weather Service warnings are drawn very precisely. MyWARN only notifies you when you are in the precise alert area.

* Only the Alerts You Want: MyWARN lets you filter out alerts that you don’t want.

* Always On: MyWARN sits silently in memory waiting for a match from the MyWARN servers.

* AlertsInMotion: MyWARN notifies you when you drive into or out of an alert, no matter where you are in the United States.

* Early Heads Up: MyWARN alerts you hours in advance by notifying you when severe weather is forecast for your location by the experts at the Storm Prediction Center.

* Simple Interface: MyWARN features a single screen that acts as a dashboard to give you an instant assessment of your situation. Alerts are color coded, labeled and organized for immediate recognition.

* Safety Information: MyWARN gives you specific safety actions to be taken based on the particular alert you are located in.

* Live Television Coverage: When a severe weather warning is issued for your location, it is time to immediately act. As you are getting in your safe place, MyWARN lets you watch television coverage and radar from partners who offer live streaming so you can get more information.

**** BATTERY LIFE ****

MyWARN uses the GPS feature of the smartphone.
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

When there are no severe weather alerts for your area OR the "Precision" option is off, MyWARN uses very little battery. But when there are alerts, the app does use the GPS to deliver you the most accurate information possible and battery use will increase. During a severe weather event, it is advisable to keep your device charging as much as possible in case you lose power for an extended period.

**** MULTIPLE SOURCES FOR INFORMATION ****

MyWARN is the newest type of severe weather notification system, but technology is not infallible. Never rely on just one source for weather alerts. Please ensure that you have multiple sources for severe weather information, including phone notification, NOAA Weatheradio, television and outdoor sirens.

**** HAVE A PLAN ****

MyWARN helps stack the odds in your favor by bringing you precise alerts and helping you know what actions to take. Having a plan, being weather aware and multiple excellent sources of severe weather information can increase your survival chances.

**** KNOWN ISSUES/SUPPORT ****

There are no known issues with the app at this time. Please let us know if you experience any problems or have suggestions by using the support email feature on the “More” menu. Your opinions and ideas are extremely important to us.

    I loved this app when I first bought it but when I got a new phone it became virtually, and eventually totally, useless. Worked like a dream on my HTC EVO but as soon as I got a Samsung Galaxy the audible alert completely failed. Support told me they were working on it. That was almost a year ago and still, no sound. Now the app can't even find my location. I get a fail every time I try to refres

    I make regular trips from sw Oklahoma through northern Texas to Shreveport, La. This app updates constantly and in unfamiliar areas I don't have to know what radio station to turn to!! MyWARN lets me know the second I'm in a watch or warning!!

    I made a terrible mistake and purchased this application in haste. I now regret wasting $10 for this useless piece of software. Let me explain it's main problem..... IT DOES NOT WORK! When the weather is bad and you really want to hear of impending or approaching danger, this application curls up and dies. That's right.... it quits working. No alerts. No warnings. NOTHING. As a result, If

    App constantly crashes. Works great when skies are blue, but very slow to update during severe weather.
