I have installed this twice now and deleted. The map is very inferior compared to others. Many clicks just take you to the mobiquity website, they are a bit full of themselves
great concept. would be better if user could set mile parameters for warnings/notifications-- i often receive warnings for lightning that is more than 200miles away. while this might be a useful warning if it were a hurricane or a tornado, it seems quite excessive for a lightning strike. with this added option, it'd be a 5star app!
This app was made over the weekend on iPage by a high school dropout. I downloaded it looking for a replacement for the horrid weather channel app or the terrible NOAA mobile interface but this ain't it. The maps are hard to access and frequently unresponsive. Hopefully our local public radio got this thing for free. If they paid money for it they were seriously ripped off and people's donations were wasted on this trash. The only appropriate star rating for this app is a black hole.
It doesn't do anything for me other than the messages at the bottom and full of advertisements filling the screen..... I am going to delete it and go back to my television app.
Check that the preparation lists work. They currently don't show anything. All I see is [getready-zone], etc.
If you're going to do and update pls make sure it works before you put it out there. Pls fix.
Doesn't fit Galaxy S5 screen
Took latest update and now I have a perpetual radio stream icon in the notification row at top of screen on my phone. No setting to display this???? ANNOYING. Will uninstall app if no way to address this. Please advise....
This is a crucial app to have. The weather map is amazingly accurate. The app needs several improvements. One obvious one: store my home location, shouldn't need to enter it each time I look at the weather map
Must have living in Florida
I love this app! NPR News, Weather, all in a single app. This is great:) Do you have a widget with the time and weather so we can ditch our other apps that do this?
Only stays open a couple of seconds on my Samsung Galaxy S5 then closes. Deleting it now.
No help at all
Just a stupid and crappy app. If i had a choice i would give it a zero star rating.
Waited 10 mins for the app to load. Glad it wasn't a real emergency.
I live in a mobile home so i watch
