    • Force closed once

    "The Red Cross In The Palm Of Your Hand"


    Are you looking for a way to keep track of information, especially in an emergency. Do you need to know what to do in the event of a tsunami or earthquake? Well, this app has your information right here. Look for real-time alerts and keep in touch when you need to.


    There is a ton of information in here that is useful in an emergency. The extra emergency features, like the strobe light, make for added usability. It loads up quickly, has a good user interface design and doesn't use up too many resources or drain the battery.


    The notifications come fast and heavy. There also should be some clearer instructions on how to manage alerts and notifications. It force closed once and had to be reloaded.

    Horrible app. Will give you the same warning notification every 2 minutes and your phone is constantly buzzing. During the last hurticane, it started with tropical storm warnings and continued with hurricane warnings for a full 48 hours every 2 minutes. I literally have hundreds of warnings and phone notifications for the same storm. I actually shut off the notifications because they were more annoying than the actual storm... I still have hundreds of them under "alerts" on their app dating back to 2014 with no way to delete them. WTF??? I will delete the app itself and depend on my TV or battery radio for storm updates in the future.

    This is a good hurricane tracking app which is what I wanted. But the notification are ridiculously overdone and there is no setting to disable some or all notifications and there is no way to dismiss a warning so that I don't get it every 15 minutes for the next 2 hours. And this is a hurricane app so why are you pushing flood and tornado warnings to my phone without giving me the ability to set what I want and don't want.

    App sucks. It does not save any of your areas or alerts you select
