Bought the older version, now I have a version that’s available for free. If I had known you were going to start giving it away I wouldn’t have bought it.
kbspins's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 9/9/18 2:20 AM
I liked storm Shield for its accuracy. But won’t pay extra to get the seven day. I liked it before they started charging. I support their channel by watching them that should really be enough.
Kevin539's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 9/9/18 2:12 PM
This app literally nearly saved my family’s life when a tornado struck our neighborhood two years ago, and was very helpful during hurricane Irma. One of the nice features is if you allow it, it will track you so if you are on a trip it will give you up to date info on all sorts of potential hazards. From floods to fires and everything in between. There are so many hazards listed in the app you may want to turn off some of the notifications. Just to give you a heads up it’s going to make you jump the first time it goes off it’s loud and seems to go off when I’m the most relaxed or asleep!

I originally bought this app years ago for a fixed price.. not sure which update changed the app, but now there are in app purchases for the hurricane tacks...
J3eremy's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 9/9/18 12:06 AM
First of all this app has been a life saver for me I’m putting all negative reviews aside because were I live we had one week were we had a bunch of severe weather and this app kept warning me and warning me that we had a severe thunderstorm watch and it kept warning me for 30 minutes straight I don’t know if this is a bug or not but if it is please keep it like that and don’t fix that it was truly helpful to me especially me being on a moped that kind of weather is extremely dangerous especially for me being on a small 2 wheeled moped 🏍 and I am extremely thankful that this app was one of the apps I purchased I left it alone on my phone and haven’t used it much but now it’s my go to app but one problem I am experiencing and I’m not sure if this is a bug or not but it is a problem with the 48 hour forecast it doesn’t seem to load all the way it has started doing that to me this week for some odd reason it isn’t the network at my house or at work because we have really good WiFi at my work and at my house but if this is a bug I thought I would say something because that feature is definitely something I really want to use but it doesn’t work all the time but anyways here are my 5 stars keep up the good work

Older version was much better, showed where lighting was near by and street names if you zoomed in.
Squirrely_in_Chicago's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 9/7/18 5:40 AM
Doesn't remember the position and zoom level when you manually move the map. Doesn't auto-play the radar animation. Doesn't remember fullscreen mode. Radar+Cloud is VERY slow. Speed it up.
IgDrig's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 9/7/18 4:42 PM
This app is getting better & better BUT the map included in the alert text has still not been replaced and that was my favorite feature. Let’s put that back please! ***Version 4.9*** Still haven’t put the map back within the Alert details?? This is pathetic, plenty of people want this back and you refuse to do it. ***Update*** So the old app was better than the new app because it could contain multiple maps within the app? That’s hilarious and pathetic that an older version can do something that the new one can’t.
Chirleski's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 9/6/18 10:08 AM
The app is worthless without a night forecast after pressing “details”. I paid for this app a couple years ago and now it’s free. That means you stole my money because I could’ve had this app for free. Thanks.

We road trip all over the US in the summer. I like to be able to set “location” setting for cities we will be traveling through to see what weather we can anticipate. Especially when driving through I-70 in Kansas during tornado season. Thank you for keeping us safe. God Bless Ya’all!
Contellation's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 9/4/18 8:59 PM
I purchased this app which included future weather trends. I now am required to pay a monthly fee to get what I had before!! Pretty shady!!! Will delete this app and look for one whose developers have better moral values.
kitpug's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 9/4/18 1:55 PM
I’ve this app for awhile, 2nd time in fact. 1st time it had sound for the weather reports then the sound stopped. Removed in hopes to fix the problem. Added back and still no sound! I like it for the fact that is my local weather but... fix please Response to my above review was nothing addressing the fact that I have no sound, Push alerts were never mentioned. 😐

merlin magic man's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 9/3/18 12:52 AM
With every kind of weather info you can imagine, this app tells all! Severe weather alerts, including lightning strikes, & live streaming forecasts, are among its many options, and, if you have relatives out West, like I do, it even connects you directly to a website containing detailed info about every fire! One of my favorite apps.

If you are wanting an app that issues weather alerts. This is the app to use as there is a plethora of selections for almost any weather event out there.
kRashkin81107's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 9/24/18 4:02 PM
I’ve read a lot of reviews that have the same complaint I’m about to make, and I’ve also read the developer responses to the reviews. I previously paid for this app years ago. And I get that the new version has all the same features as the previous version plus a few extra features. But the new features that require an additional monthly subscription, I don’t think it’s something that you should even be asking for an additional monthly charge for. Just have one flat fee of a few bucks to either upgrade to those features or raise the price of the initial cost of the app by a buck or two. I think the monthly charge to see future radar and lightning strikes is ridiculous. I would love to see future radar (could care less about lightning strikes), but I’m not paying .99 a month for it and I don’t think it’s fair to charge a monthly fee to see that. It doesn’t seem worth $12 a year, but I really would love to just have that feature if I could pay a couple dollars to add it if it’s that important to make a profit off of the future radar feature (lame). Otherwise I enjoy the app. Just think the extra subscription is ridiculous.

Thjiyrdfj's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 9/19/18 3:23 PM
I've had this app for more than a year. It's pretty good in that it loads and shows the weather faster than others. This last update was not good. Now it doesn't remember you transparency setting you prefer -- always going back to default. I wish I didn't update it now. Update... transparency now remembered with recent update. BUT, the latest update now causes the app not to show any weather. You have to close the app then open it again. This is on iPhones and iPads.
Ugggggggggggggggggggggggg's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 9/18/18 9:23 PM
My biggest problem with this app is that many premium features such as lightning alerts and futurecast are absolve for free on the weather channel app. There's not really a point for me to have this app

metro3947's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 9/16/18 3:15 AM
I needing to find a replacement for the defunct Weather Underground Storm app that give lighting alerts at 10 miles. This works great for that and has accurate forecasting data. Don’t mind paying because I would rather pay than have my data sold. Nice app hits all of the high points for me.

Storm shield makes it easy to monitor weather in six locations where family live as well as any location where I happen to be. While I use other websites, such as NOAA's National Hurricane Center, Storm Shield is usually the first place I look for weather information. Great app.
Weatherby Stud's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 9/11/18 10:59 AM
Why does the app not show hurricanes? For what we pay for the app it should show everything!
Abeliz16's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 9/1/18 1:19 AM
Ever since I updated the app about 8 months ago, I’ve lost all push notifications. I’ve checked the settings in the app and on my phone and all things point to the idea that I SHOULD be receiving push notifications for a storm watch or warning but I do not. I paid for this app years ago and it definitely doesn’t perform the way it used to. And even though I’ve previously paid for the app, now it’s requiring me to pay for in app things, which I never had to before. Overall I used to refer people to get this app and now I’m getting ready to delete it. 8/31/18: still waiting on the fix that you replied back on over a month ago. Is there an estimated time on what I should expect my app to be fully functioning again?

RVR57's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 8/28/19 1:35 PM
Detailed weather alerting like no other. Most apps have only a few options to determine what weather alerts you want to receive. With Storm Shied you can modify exactly what weather warnings, alerts, etc. you want to receive, very comprehensive.

Creamcheese430's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 8/28/19 1:35 PM
I have had this app for years, originally paid for it. Now all of a sudden I have to pay more, monthly to get certain features to work? No thank you. I feel as if I have been scammed. I deleted the app from my phone. Perhaps Storm Shield should be featured on "Don't Waste Your Money"?
p0669's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 8/28/19 1:35 PM
I love this app! The radar is so clear and it moves just at the right speed so I can track the storms timing. Very Happy!!
Ohwrdami's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 8/28/19 1:35 PM
This is one of several weather apps that I run. I’m in public safety and bots and apps monitoring various sources are how I stay up to the minute. I use StormShield for the weather alerts and quick glance doppler. Its hit or miss. I either get the weather alert (sometimes 2-4 of the same alert) or nothing at all. Its a little wacky because the NWS wire will have active warnings in place and the app is happy as a clam. For a free app with paid upgrade options its not bad. I just wish the alert portion of the app was more robust.

not happy kn the motor city's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 8/25/18 9:34 AM
This app once was amazing, when you went to options and selected which specific alert you wanted to know about it would come through even stating the problem, it could have been a thunderstorm warning, tornado warning or what ever you choose for the alert. Now it comes through as a weather alert, you don’t know what it is anymore. Not to mention it now comes through after a storm had hit and it then goes off. It’s also laggy since they’ve change it to the lighting and future feature (to pay for) on the app. Extremely difficult to load the current weather if I’m looking to see how far away a storm is from where I’m at. It’s not just my phone or carrier either, I have friends who have the app with different phones and carriers and all does the same thing.

Storm Shield is a decent weather app but I need to pay monthly for the use of future radar prediction? Your competitors offer that and more benefits at no charge.
cmholcomb's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 8/23/18 9:56 AM
It used to give you the actual warning or watch immediately. Now it just tells you that you’ve been issued a weather statement and you have to go look it up to see what the statement actually is. I don’t like that. I don’t always have time to go in and read the warning or watch. I like being able to see it at a glance.

Rev Jude's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 8/22/18 12:14 AM
I am very disappointed in this app and also the people who designed it. I do understand they do want to make money. I can respect that myself. Who cannot understand that because I’m sure there’s a lot of work that goes into designing these apps. I’m very disappointed with this company who designed it. I did purchased this app a few years ago and I sent an email I was wondering if they would add a few things? They were very nice. They did respond back to me. So I’m thinking this is a good app. They put some updates on this app and now they want to charge you extra for it. I think that’s wrong. Also AccuWeather has a much better weather app including the weather bug over this. It does follow your location and they give you more for your money. I recommend you do not purchase this app . It’s not really a good app for tracking the weather. Don’t waste your money in this app it’s garbage. I feel very strongly all they want to do is stick you and take your money. That develop response is very poor. There’s no way I should have to pay for any more updates when you purchased the app to begin with. There’s no excuse for their stupidity.. Now I regret purchasing it. There are a lot of other free apps out there that I’m much better than this crap. For them to give me a lousy response is sick. I shouldn’t have to pay for anything and neither should anyone else who already purchased the app.
Bewhatur's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 8/21/18 8:02 PM
My complaint?? A major one. It “alerts” me of a special weather statement, it has many times over last few weeks. The problem? THERE IS NEVER AN ALWRT WHEN I OPEN THE APP! Am I supposed to just KNOW? It continues to alert me and NEVER ONCE HAS THERE BEEN A LEGIT WATCH OR WARNING!! Ridiculous! I originally wanted it as it offered sound warnings, what a big nothing. Thanks I will go back to the drawing board.
GCS-MO's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 8/19/18 5:05 PM
Update August 19, 2018 I received a note from the App Store that a developer had commented on my review. Thinking that maybe they had addressed/fixed the situation that I pointed out, I spent the time to check. Nothing. So who decided that I needed to spend time looking at the meaningless response they provided two months ago and I had already seen; Apple, Storm Shields developers, ??? What a waste of time. Still one star. Original Review - What a bad app. I went to forward a “Special Weather Bulletin “ and the app stopped me, insisting that I rate the app and write a review. No other options. I do not recommend this app at all. Find anything else!

Wolf(gang)'s Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 7/9/18 10:17 PM
After the “Storm app” has been discontinued and replaced with a unreliable, confusing alternative I decided some weeks ago to go with Storm Shield. Living in Puerto Rico we just went through a strong Tropical Storm and thanks to this app I was able stay informed about track, thunderstorms, marine advisory etc. at all times. The available options in this app are outstanding and can be easily activated. App tops all other weather/storm apps I have tried and this will be here to stay and becomes my favorite to go through the current Hurricane Season. Thanks to the developer.
Angeleyez187's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 7/8/18 1:04 PM
Paid for the app a while back and it was decent- not as loud like I would have liked (hoped to replace weather radio with this) but over the past 6 months, the app has just decided to stop sending me alerts altogether and no, I’ve changed nothing on settings and yes, I’ve tried uninstalling and reinstalling. My husband will get double alerts sometimes while I get zero.

Bass_Fishing1's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 7/20/18 1:54 PM
1.28.18 Wow, I bought this app over a year ago and now it is free. But you are asking me to pay for an upgrade to “future radar” and other options. I hope that is a mistake. Also remove the past & future radar from the middle of the app, Annoying.. Help with this would be appreciated considering I paid for this app. 2.3.18; So I get a response from the support people. However this developer needs to do their homework. There are plenty of “Free” apps that have Future Radar and do and have been doing what this app has finally gotten around to doing. But for those of us that paid anywhere from $2.99-$4.99 for this app should be treated different than the so-called free 3 month trial. We paid for this App and those additions should be given to those that have paid if not send us a refund. Because if not lots of people that paid will delete this app and go to The Weather Channel, AccuWeather, NWS, etc, etc. Hopefully this gets read by support and react to faithful subscribers..... 2.9.18: Well I received the same old response, not going to help customers at all. Give the same response about the 3 month free trial and then you can pay for the app Again... VERY VERY POOR POOR WAY TO TREAT CUSTOMERS..!!! If you had something that others had you may be able to have something, but you don’t, read 2.3.18 update, there are plenty of “FREE” weather apps that do all you offer now without paying for.. Suggestion to others—stay away and try back in 6 months when this developer figures out they have lost customers to other apps because of greed.!!! DELETE, DELETE, DELETE 👎👎👎 3.3.18 Nothing changed, still trying to hose customers. This app when buying used to be in the top 10, it goes somewhat free and it is now 38th. Word of mouth travels fast and hosing customers goes even faster. When will the developers of this app wake up..??? 7.20.18. Well I gave it a shot and guess what nothing has changed. You still think people are going to change by paying for (future radar) NOT! Absolutely crazy when there are so many name brand apps with so many features for “Free”. Tried it and trashed it. 👎👎👎

awargo4's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 7/18/18 10:10 PM
This app is great and has many useful features. However, it is ridiculous that I have to open my phone to figure out the location of a weather alert when the app could easily announce the location with the alert. Also, it’s ridiculous that a weather alert app lacks the option to make severe weather alerts audible even when the phone is on silent. If third party alarm clocks can do it, you can do it. Finally, it would be nice to have the option to select whether chosen alerts apply to all locations or only the home location *individually*. Currently, it can’t be done at all. I want to know if severe weather is near my family. I don’t want all of the weather alerts for them that I have turned on for my home.
jeffrey grey's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 7/17/18 1:46 AM
It’s the best weather app, because it lets you know what is going on. Weather is the most important stuff because in a Instant a tornado can just form and you have no clue about it and then you die from it. so I like this weather app because it just let you know what’s going on, in like the weather system and all that. it’s just a helpful thing when traveling or just sitting at work and all of a sudden it goes off and tells you if there’s a tornado or like a severe thunderstorm watch or if nothings going on, just a very helpful app.
MichaelLafave's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 7/16/18 12:02 AM
When I first got the app, Channel 7 action news Detroit said this was the app to have for all weather needs no matter where you are at. Then a couple changes occurred and now if you really want to be in the know about the weather in your immediate area, you need to pay for he service. Not worth it, I’ll change over to Weatherbug if the weather doesn’t look to good or I need to see a long term forecast.

Our monsoon rains are beginning in southern Arizona and I thought I’d try Storm Shield as a replacement for WU Storm. To my surprise, I opened Storm Shield this afternoon and it failed to pick up our active cell on radar. Smaller cells were shown to the northeast but it completely missed the larger one overhead (which had been building for over an hour) and for which Storm Shield had released an alert. Supposedly the radar data was updated 4 minutes prior. My search for a weather app continues...

WeatherAlert's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 6/27/18 8:08 PM
I liked when the kind of alert was spoken instead of just a generic notice that an alert was issued.
bobby50371's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 6/27/18 6:55 PM
This was a good app many moons ago… It would alert as to whether happenings wherever we were… And then one day some m**** decided to make it free and then when I click on future radar it now asks me to pay for it. Bad form. So I have to pay a dollar per month to get future radar… But I paid five dollars for this app when it came out. And now it’s free and you have to pay for features that everyone else gives you for free. Time to move on. EDIT: I click FUTURE button on the radar it always shows the projected course, I have ALWAYS had this feature, Dont tell me I never had this with the old app, because it’s the only app I’ve used for weather radar for years SPECIFICALLY for this feature.
Canrunner1962's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 6/27/18 5:26 PM
I love the app but your GPS just leave something to be desired. I had to look and look for where I actually was and when I find it it says that I am in a town that is nowhere near here. And the current location actually says the town that I am close to what the heck.
jsnowe's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 6/27/18 1:38 PM
Paid for this app a couple of years ago. It worked fine back then. Now, they want me to pay $1.00 per month to see future radar predictions. All done with this app. Deleted! Update to my review. Apparently, when you buy the app, you only get the current version. Future versions cost more. Second update. After reading developer’s response, I am not swayed one bit. The value that I paid for with this app is now gone. Anybody can now get the same for free. I did not reinstall.
renny2016's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 6/25/18 11:59 PM
After the app developers have taken the time to explain the changes - and that the most important thing is that you can still have the same features of the app without needing to pay a new monthly subscription fee - I’m updating the app review with more stars because it is the best most useful weather app I’ve come across! What I like best with this app is easily the watch and warning alert notifications. I would like to also mention that I was not given any reward for rewriting my review. Update: from 4 to 5 stars - I have weather app coverage in Canada!!!!!
GCS-MO's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 6/23/18 8:12 PM
What a bad app. I went to forward a “Special Weather Bulletin “ and the app stopped me, insisting that I rate the app and write a review. No other options. I do not recommend this app at all. Find anything else!

Fairly good radar and hourly forecasts but would really like to see extended weather beyond 7days. Also need to see radar predictions for a few hours into the future, have seen it on other apps and would be a great addition, then it would deserve 5stars, I was being generous giving 4 stars at this point.

Mandyr735's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 6/17/18 8:22 PM
I’ve used this app for years and really liked it. It was great for seeing local radar and the general trajectory of storms. Previously, the radar showed the storms moving and the projected path and continued severity of the storm systems, generally only for the coming 20-30 minutes, but it was there. During hail and heavy thunderstorms, it was useful. Now, any kind of future casting is an in-app purchase, billed on a monthly basis. Let’s forget that any of us using this app have already BOUGHT the app in the first place. Way to nickel and dime us all!! I’ll find another real-time radar app st this point. The in-app purchased of basic uses while the touting of “free inclusions” of features that the typical everyday user doesn’t care about has left a very sour taste in my mouth. Avoid this app.
mac_guy1975's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 6/16/18 12:50 AM
This is an ok app but not as good as the promos would lead you to believe. You can only save 5 locations & after those are full you can't search for other locations you might be interested in. The Weather Underground app is far better and I use the Weather Underground's Storm app as my go to weather app. 6/15/18 This is an update from my previous review. Storm Shield has made a lot of improvements to this app & since The Weather Channel s****** up the Storm app with a new & improved?? version this has become my go to weather app.
Brian R1066's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 6/16/18 11:58 PM
The pay for components are available elsewhere and there is no need to buy them here. All in one is great, but $ are not necessary. Please update your map so when you tap on a warning or watch box, it links you to the details. Again, that is found in apps elsewhere. Set push notifications options to be current location and chosen locations, not all locations that one is following. Those 12 heat alerts from select places is quite annoying! Keep improving, best option I’ve found since Storm s****** everything up with their new version.
nicholas1w's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 6/10/18 3:37 AM

Loved the app before 4.1. Now it’s 1:30pm and my battery is down to 14%. I usually have close to 70% battery left when I go to bed at night. A new interface isn’t worth having a dead phone by mid-afternoon!
wstuller308's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 2/1/18 4:13 PM
UPDATE, UPDATE, UPDATE !!!!!!L Seems the new update wants a monthly fee now, the reason I purchase apps is so I don’t have to keep buying but seems the developer wants a monthly subscription for future weather ??? Unless I am missing something when you click on future weather you are taken to a screen that want to sell it to you for like $0.99 per month, no thanks if that’s the case as that’s I bought the app in the first place so guess I need to go on the hunt for a new weather app, what a shame. Have had this app on my older iPhone 5s for a long time and worked great and then upgraded to the iPhone X and still works great but locks up tight on my iPad Pro, running the latest updates and it goes thru then install fine but when I launch it the app displays the radar and does nothing and nothing you touch within the app works, hopefully this will get addressed in the next update as I like the app a lot
Icarus_SD's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 2/1/18 3:35 PM
This was my go-to weather app for a long time. Paid $4 for the features, which is valuable living in South Florida. HOWEVER, after the latest update I CANNOT recommend this app. They switched to a subscription service and now asking us to pay monthly for services that are free in their apps. This is bad business IMHO and I will stop using this until it is corrected. If I pay for an app, I dont expect to have to pay again for the changes they decided to make. It’s called fleecing and Apple should be alerted. Shame. Shame.
Sirach38's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 2/1/18 1:32 PM
The latest update no longer shows future radar unless I subscribe to a monthly service. But hey, since I previously purchased this app, I'm eligible for a "free three month trial." Oh joy. 😑 Quite frankly, I wonder if this is even legal. I would not have downloaded this app in the first place if it didn't provide future radar.
nky4330's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 12/6/18 12:34 PM
We can’t hear the severe weather sirens where we live so this app is great for that, especially living in the Midwest. For non life threatening weather systems—like the severe fog alert two weeks ago—I’d prefer not to be woken up at 3 am. It’s not “the killer fog” creeping in, I don’t think.
Locknload7's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 12/5/18 12:33 PM
I’ve used the app for many years. It’s funky but it had good info. This weekend every one of my saved Colorado locations is 10-20 degrees wrong. I have to bounce between other apps to verify the temperature. At this point even if the info is correct I can’t trust it. I plan my travels based on the data. The time has come. I must find another.
d-0-g's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 12/31/18 12:48 PM
When you put several locations on alerts it just tells you the alert and not the location so you have to search all locations and not very accurate lately

IgDrig's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 12/30/17 7:22 PM
I love the vast list of alerts that the user can receive. I also like the map showing the polygon colors & area within the alert. *****One hazard that is missing is the “Special Weather Statement” alerts for winter & severe weather. Please add this feature ASAP! It would really come in handy in the winter. TWC & Accuweather both include those alerts. Once that is included, this app will be perfect.*****

I love that no matter where I or my friends and family are located, I can be aware of their situation. I can check my exact location and see what is coming my way; whereas, TV is more general. Alerts are good. I use it to check where a country is located. You can expand the area to towns and rivers. I show my friends.

I don’t like that when the app changed the current map radar was changed. I actually do not like the new app much at all. But, it does provide weather information and alarms, so until someone is wise enough to put it back as it was, it is what I’m stuck with.

Velocitoro's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 12/16/18 12:38 PM
Of course I have used this app for years and it has performed flawlessly (and I mean that), but never bothered to give it a rating. It is only now that it has become so slow and glitchy that I bother to finally rate it. 1) I launch the app in the middle of a thunderstorm and deluge and the display at the same location shows not cloud in the sky. 2) If and when there is thunderstorm display, random blocks or quadrants of the display are blank. 3) The ‘Play / Pause’ display function may or may not decide to comply though its icon says otherwise. 4) Should the ‘Play’ display function decide to actually comply, the time-stamped storm movement may just stop in its movement or most likely it will cycle ONCE and then STOP rather than repeating through the prior 30-45 minute time span as it once did. 5) After having purchased the purportedly full app in good faith, the now optional ‘Future’ function for an ongoing monthly fee belies the app’s public service quality because if the technology to provide the information is already existent (ie, available to and paid for by the issuer), then it should be incorporated into the app for its existing clientele. Bottom line: Just get it together or it will be money wasted as people move on to another, more reliable, better app. Thanks for reading...Velocitoro
Gamer3475's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 12/16/18 12:38 PM
This app is so close to being perfect. I really like the radar and the severe box overlays. The severe alerts are also great; I’ve never seen so many choices for different alerts. I also like how you can easily tap any alert box anywhere and see the alert details. The only reason I took off two stars is for the subscription. I hate apps that have a subscription versus a one time payment. Why do you think your app is so great that we have to keep paying for it over and over again? I don’t understand this model. Just let me pay for it once and be done. This isn’t cable tv. I really think I would purchase a one time IAP to get the storm tracks feature. This is the only feature I think the app in general is missing. But I would never get a subscription from an app. Just let me pay you once and be done. Don’t be greedy!

GCC COH's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 12/16/18 12:38 PM
The alerts are fine. The forecasts don’t always quite agree with local forecasts. But the most current radar being 5-9 minutes in the past makes a difference when storms are developing. Playing the loop right now gives me 9:30-9:50 pm, but it’s currently 9:58. Are the current thunderstorms breaking up or building strength? Can’t tell. Current radar shouldn’t cost a premium. Have to use Weather Channel app to get an actual current radar picture.

There are way too many alerts to be useful. A dusting of snow is not an emergency. It’s just winter. I wish I could use your app to keep my family safe during actual emergencies, but with alerts being issued every day for low priority events, it fails to be useful.

I’d pay a one time charge ( as long as it’s not an exorbitant amount) but am not paying monthly fees. But I’ll still keep using it because other than that it’s great.

KeizerKate's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 11/30/18 12:32 PM
Alerts have always been accurate and on time. There are a ton of different alert options so you can set up exactly what is unique to you own location and region. For example as we get into the cold Northwest winter months, we rely on dense fog alerts, freezing fog alerts, rain and freezing rain alerts, flood watches and alerts, etc. If we know we will be traveling, we can set alerts for mountain passes, destination cities. If we just want updates about places where family members live, we can set those alerts too. We consider Storm Shield an indispensable tool and would not want to be without it!

I initially paid for this app and then they want more money. I’m sorry I wasted my money. It’s easier to check your local online TV weather’s radar. The app was best when it first came out. There should not be an upgrade charge for future weather because obviously when you’re looking at a weather app you want the future weather otherwise you would just look out the window. And I don’t need a verbose response to this ...what you should do is refund our money since now the basic app is free.

Victoria-chirp's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 11/19/18 12:32 PM
I like this app, and I would give it 5 stars except the radar lags behind often up to 10 minutes. As fast as severe storms pop up around here, I often find the radar useless. I wrote to Storm Shield about this problem some months back, and they promptly wrote back. They said they would check into the issue to see if they could decrease the lag time, but nothing has changed.

I love the app it has so much potential but one thing it lacks for the Apple Watch is being able to view the radar on the Apple Watch itself if at all possible I was wondering if you developers would be up to the challenge of making it possible to view the radar and the weather forecast on the Apple Watch itself I have the series 3 Apple Watch ⌚️ and I would actually like to see this app being able to be put to good use on the Apple Watch but again that’s only a feature I would like added to the Apple Watch ⌚️ so again if any of you developers are up for a challenge being able to view the radar and view the weather forecast on it to I would definitely appreciate it because I would find that useful but here are my 5 stars

poogyaw's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 10/4/18 12:31 PM
TIL that I can just drop a pin on the map and get the weather for that location! This is SO much easier than having to go through all the other steps, especially when I’m out kayaking and am unsure what the nearest city is. Keep up the great work!

Excellent app very accurate
CM's Mom's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 10/29/17 2:41 AM
I have had this app for over a year and have found it to be very helpful. Several times I have been alerted to weather conditions I wouldn't have otherwise known about. This gave me the chance to prepare, when we otherwise wouldn't have had the opportunity.
DanielFusa's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 10/28/18 3:35 AM
Keeps me informed about the weather! Very Accurate! Thank you!

Nikola Pušić's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 10/25/17 11:14 AM
The Storm Shield App said that a frost advisory was put in effect, so I knew that I had to cover my plants from the first frost. So the storm shield app saved my harvest and plants. Thank You!
Bcolson's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 10/24/17 8:17 PM
I really rely on this app. Couldn’t do without it! Great warnings for all areas I have picked in the app.
JudyWren's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 10/20/18 3:17 PM
My kids and I live in three distinctly different areas of the country. This app easily generally shows me the weather in all three areas, but it gives clear weather alerts for each area. I don’t have to ask how their weather is, I know!
Pale Wraith's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 10/20/17 9:13 AM
Could use a widget and ability to re-order locations. Other than that works fine.
Sunshine girl 72's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 10/2/18 1:00 AM
I find it hard to find the alert . It shows o alert after getting the alert . After trying several things I found it ! was easier to use before this change .
Coming Girl's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 10/13/18 2:54 PM
We use Storm Shield all of time during the monsoon season, we can watch the coming storms so the we don’t get caught up in flash flooding areas in Arizona, the alert system is wonderful and warns us on our phone of lightning storms and alerts that we should know ahead of time so we can plan our outings and errands. The Doppler Radar maps are real-time so we can see the progress and severity of a storm, I’m addicted to this ap! So thankful to have it!
Thestral33's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 10/12/18 6:27 PM
**Updated Review** Thanks to the developer for providing feedback. After reviewing my purchase from 2012, I did in fact pay $4.99 for the use of the App. This was part of a promotional bundle with a local station App making the price $10.99 ($4.99 for Storm Shield & $6.00 for the local station). I still stand by the 3 star rating, it’s an average app. **Original Review** I’ve had the app for years (paid $10.99) and now I have to pay for features that I originally had, like storm tracking and future radar for a monthly fee. According to the other reviews, the developer states that those were not in previous versions however they were included. Living in fla I used it to track hurricanes in the past and see future severe storm predictions. Accu Weather App allows future radar. Overall I like the app but taking away features that originally came with the app is a bad apple.
rmgahm's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 10/12/18 3:58 AM
How can I get the current location conditions? It useless when you can’t get those conditions!
Marine Ret.'s Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 10/12/18 11:34 AM
I’m very happy to have this on my phone. The alerts are nice to have. At home and on the golf courses.
Mcgyver210's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 10/1/18 5:29 AM
Updated 10/01/18 Developer keeps saying they are giving paid users more but let's analyze this. I paid for premium features & now I get nothing more than any FREE unpaid user. So tell me again what was grandfathered. My son is a developer as I said & he truly grandfather's paid users. So I stand by my title "Another Bait N Switch App" Should have truly grandfathered paid users with actual value Free users don't receive. I understand subscriptions are the way now but developers should have forward thought or truly grandfathered existing users. My weather app does better than this now anyway Paid for this app & snow cast a while back which was ok for the little use it gets & now they have changed it to monthly so will be deleting on principle due to bait n switch with no true grandfathering of past purchasers. Not worth monthly fee Imo based on how much I've used it though which is only during bad storms. Being a early paid user isn't a good thing when developers decide to change to new pricing making paid users purchases mean nothing. Geesh my sons a developer & he thinks ahead with pricing structure.

Icemandug's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 1/7/18 8:07 PM
This app actually lets you know when bad weather is coming. I appreciate an app that does such a good job.
Librababyinfinite's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 1/7/18 4:27 PM
Had this app since 2010. I Re-download on every new phone I get. It hasn’t failed me yet. Even tracking weather when I’m out of town, it’s been perfect.

I’ve had this app for years. A MUST for your safety
wstuller308's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 1/5/18 11:15 AM
Have had this app on my older iPhone 5s for a long time and worked great and then upgraded to the iPhone X and still works great but locks up tight on my iPad Pro, running the latest updates and it goes thru then install fine but when I launch it the app displays the radar and does nothing and nothing you touch within the app works, hopefully this will get addressed in the next update as I like the app a lot
Dragonberry11's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 1/4/18 12:38 PM
I am very happy with this app. It has been accurate and very detailed since I have been using it for the last four years. I would highly recommend this app to my family and friends.
JDubbDeuce's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 1/31/18 8:48 PM
I have loved this app until now. With the most recent update, they added a subscription in order to get new features. This is an app that I already paid for, and should not have to pay for an additional subscription. People that paid for the app originally should be grandfathered in, and if you want to move to a subscription based fee going forward for people that are new to the app, then that would make a lot more sense.
Cart2000's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 1/31/18 8:32 AM
I do not know what it is with subscriptions these days. To me, this app had the best all around feedback on weather. Now to get the features that help you the most, you need to pay a monthly subscription. Fail on the developer part.
golfnut1982's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 1/31/18 6:30 PM
Please tweak the location options like before. Uses a lot of battery and an annoying blue warning now appears. Not sure I can let it run all the time like before. Also, the app needs the location arrow to bring you back to your current location when you visit other places. Rearrange your locations would be nice and also a widget. Many features on the old version were better in my opinion.
Squatting Hen's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 1/31/18 4:31 PM
Installed this last night, 1/30/18, and today my battery is draining extremely fast, at a rate of at least 15-20% an hour. Looking at the battery percentage usage for the past 24 hours (haven't even had the app a full 24) apple shows Storm Shield has used 31% and is at the top spot. The next item is Safari then Outlook....at 7%. Please look into this. Thanks.
Jason7200's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 1/31/18 4:06 AM
After the new update all the useful features have been stripped. Now everything costs extra. 🙁
J3eremy's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 1/31/18 2:08 AM
I love this app it is one of the top weather apps that I depend on I but one thing I would add is the ability to add the weather shield app to the widgets bar and I would try to figure out how to make this app battery conservative because right now this app is a huge battery hog but other than that you got my 5 stars ✨ so keep the updates coming and keep up the great work developers Updated review ( January 30,2018) Please read: I loved this app because it had no in app purchases but now it has been updated and new features have been added and I have to purchase them and pay a monthly subscription for it it’s almost like you guys are saying I know you loyal customers have paid $4.00 for this app but pay an extra $75 a year just to add 2 little features that nobody is going to pay for not even me I can easily download the storm team 8 weather app and that tells me when lightning has been detected in my area I’m not going to pay $75 a year just for this feature for that reason I took away 3 stars this app was perfect until you added these features that I can’t even afford I would rather pay for food to go on my table so sorry I love the app but not enough to pay for the 2 new features but if they become free new features I will give 3 stars back because like I said it was a great app until you guys added the in app purchases
ccso897's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 1/31/18 12:58 AM
All this update is for us to force those people that have purchased the app in the past to now pay $1.49 a month. Either give us the features that we originally paid for without bugging us to pay you more for month.
Chirleski's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 1/31/18 10:59 AM
Now it’s free? I paid for this app. I want a refund!!!
MNMacht's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 1/30/18 9:57 PM
I have been keeping an eye on this app, hoping for an update. It’s finally here and it’s great!!! The screen real estate usage is way better. The menus are cleaner and sharper. This is my new favorite weather app since the old Storm app was abandoned and I do not care for the new version. I only wish there was a dark theme since I am using a iPhone X it will conserve battery. It will also not be so bright late at night or early in the morning.
stiger72's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 1/30/18 8:28 PM
The new update rolled out today and lots of new and welcome changes - all useful! One minor bug... when viewing the weekly forecast the month repeats itself otherwise it seems solid.
Clamball's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 1/30/18 8:05 PM
I paid full price for this app several years ago. I update today and see a message about new features. Well, access to said new features will cost $X.XX per month! As a friendly gesture they are giving those that paid for the app 3 free months. What a joke. Why not give free (permanent) access to the new features to those that have already paid for the app like most other developers??? Shame on you! I will NOT be suggesting this app to ANYONE.
iTouchAppReviewers's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 1/30/18 6:53 PM
Took away granularity of alerts and now charges us PAYING USERS monthly fees if we want other features. We paid once. Why on earth would we pay again? Go get MyRadar (there’s a free version). Used to be happy with this app, but not anymore. Greedy.
Tim Delier's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 1/30/18 10:58 PM
Was a great app and have used it for a few years now, but the developers are getting greedy and jumped on the IAP / subscription model for parts of the application. Seems you have to have a subscription to use any services these days. It’s quite frustrating.
Fall Happiness's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 1/3/18 3:36 PM
We constantly use Storm Shield to keep us informed for planning trips, working, daily travel, and house preparations if needed. We can look at other Cities where we have family/friends to check on their weather as well. Since our weather can change pretty rapidly it is nice to be able to know what to expect and how to plan anytime we want.
Hotrod6045's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 1/20/18 8:01 PM
Maybe a widget should be added so that I can use only one weather app for my phone. Both a radar and a real time/location weather widget?

RoxannaS's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 1/14/18 8:06 PM
I’m very pleased with this app. The thing I like best about it is the accuracy of predictions for my area. I live in a small town and sometimes it’s difficult to get an accurate forecast.

Bronco Smitty's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 1/13/19 12:29 PM
It works fine for the limited features availabile on the free version. My biggest beef is that you can’t combine two features at the same time on the map. For example, temperatures AND radar cannot be displayed simultaneously. Want lightning alerts? Future radar forecast? Storm tracking? Then you need to pay. Storm Radar from the Weather Channel has all that and more for free.
nicholas1w's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 1/13/19 12:29 PM
Storm shield app is the perfect and life saving weather app out there! Providing severe weather alerts for my exact location. I love the current weather radar the layers, the Hurricane tracks on the map and the current weather conditions and the forecast when I look at my iPhone. The alerts and beeps are awesome like a accurate weather radio. Whenever a hurricane or a tornado strikes in my area, storm shield app can be a lifesaver to me and my family. And when I receive those alerts I can alert my family and get our supplies ready for the storm. Thanks to this developer bad weather is not gonna prevent me from being prepared or ready! 🌀🌪

A Winter storm is bearing down on my city. This app with its detailed radar and reliable push notifications on winter storm warnings is keeping my family safe. It even announces special weather statements which gave me a heads up on my evening commute. This app will even read the alert to you. I recommend this app.
Mick's Game's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 1/11/18 4:05 PM
Since living in the Midwest, it's important to stay up on the weather. This app is a great tool for that. Although it's only as good as forecasters, it's usually reliable. I've grown to depend on it while planning my day or to making trips. I've had to contact programmers and they were quick and thorough with their updates and fixes. Update as of 1/2018-app is good, just the weather in Nebraska can be unpredictable. But I still rely on this app to give me some idea what is coming. Also had Snowcast app, but seems to have been zapped-irritating.
ZayLew's Review of Storm ShieldReviewed on 1/1/18 7:01 PM
