**** 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.

    Once I installed it kept telling me refresh failed, every time that I opened it. Can't believe I spent 10$ on this and it doesn't even work... off to purchase something else I suppose.

    This app is great. Helps me out a lot. We live in a very rural area and sometimes rely this app.

    Problem with test mode. Ryan emailed me within the hour. Uninstall and reinstall from Playstore. Works flawlessly now. A bit more volume on the alert would earn 5 stars. You need this app for Safety.

    On a Samsung Galaxy S4, I get the visual warnings but just no sound, not low sound volume... NO SOUND. Done everything I know to do with no success. This problem needs to be corrected immediately. It does not provide the service as advertised due to the v

    Nice app, if expensive... but no updates more than three months after submitting a pretty serious bug report (if you have poor visibility to GPS satellites, your battery will drain *very* quickly regardless of your settings in myWarn), and Ryan, who previ

    The function of the app itself is pretty good, however, it could use some better coding. For one, there are WAY to many wake locks. It will poll your GPS every so often and if you're in a building or some place where it can't lock on, it will continue to

    Cool concept but it seems to crash all the time. I have uninstalled it. Fix it and maybe I will keep it around. Weatherbug elite is more reliable and does way more for the price.
