  • This is a great technology and app!

    It seems to have the fastest real-time data and predictive ability. The local fire department and EMS used it to allocate resources during the early September fires on Maui that burned over over 2200 acres and over 20 structures and because of it, no lives were lost and real damage was minimized.
  • Pretty Map, Questionable Data

    By Don Hanson
    This app has a nice world map that shows different types of disasters around the world. Two big fails that you may or may not care about; 1. Incomplete data. Apparently the volcano in Hawaii didn’t qualify as a disaster. Three high wind/storm warnings: check! Volcano: 0. 2. This thing is spammy on the alerts. To be fair there are a lot of disasters going on in the world every single day. IOS 12 will bring alert grouping, maybe they’re counting on that. Or perhaps it’s to encourage people to subscribe ($$$) to the premium alert feature to prioritize daily alerts in areas of interest you select? Fix the data quality issues and I’d pay a couple bucks for this app, but a subscription? Heck no!

  • Eye Opening App

    By Bev in TX
    I don't know about other people but sometimes I get "tunnel vision" and tend to focus more on what is going on in my little corner of the world. This app has been an eye opener for me in terms of the bigger picture about calamities occurring all over our world. It is sobering to see so many disasters and makes me much more appreciative of each day. The app is easy to navigate and very informative. It's definitely a keeper.
