  • Great feature for the price Apr 13, 2020

    By Eric Hout
    This app allows you to to get a live stream of any NOAA Weather Radio in the US, plus some Canada and tropical radio feeds as well. It also allows you to receive weather alerts that you customize for your specific county or other location of interest. Here is the only thing I wish there was a workaround for: Part of why I purchased this app is so I can have it wake me up if there is severe weather or flash flooding at night. I typically turn my phone on airplane mode when I go to sleep, and it doesn’t look like alerts will come through when the phone is on airplane mode. So, on nights where there is severe weather or flooding expected, it looks like I will need to keep my phone off of airplane mode, but then will also need to temporarily turn other notifications for email, texts, and phone calls off so that if there is a severe weather warning at night, it can wake me up and I don’t have to worry about text messages waking me up! Also, you have the option of paying an additional 99 cents as an in-app purchase for additional information on the products issued by the NWS/SPC for your area, which is very helpful.

  • Eh, well, the radio voice is the same, I guess May 2, 2020

    By khaj0412
    I got this app for the purpose of having the NOAA radio weather at my fingertips whenever I wanted it. Recently I’ve owned an emergency crank radio which had NOAA weather on it and I love having the computer-generated voice reciting the forecast - for some reason I find it immensely soothing. Listening to that voice tell me the weather for my area (or, more specifically, the area in which I may be in at any given moment in time) is something I find both useful and pleasing to my ears. Within a few minutes of paying for and downloading this app I began to look around at the radio stations in my region and of the dozen or so stations “available” in my region only two of them delivered on a forecast and one was for a location on the other side of the country! Since I am writing this review during a pandemic and everything is slow to change (or slow to be fixed if it is broken or not working properly) I will hunker down with this app and give it time to start working the way I want it to work. If it does not start to work correctly, however, my review could change.

  • Irma Sep 27, 2017

    By Stop The Excessive Ads
    Here is my story, I downloaded this app in anticipation for Hurricane Irma. I went to use the app and it was locked in to the loading screen, I thought this meant it would work in a time of need. Once we lost power and the storm was ramping up to its worst, I opened the app and waited 1 min for it to connect to a radio in my area. No luck, I figured I would try again when I received power. When I did get power same issue occurred. We faired ok and I downloaded my local news app. We used it for the next 2 days (day of storm and luckily the 23.5 hours of no power.) I reached out to the Noaa people to notify them of my troubles and ask for a refund if $4.99. I am not a fan of paying for apps unless it is a necessity. This seemed critical so I forked over the $5 for an app that I would use possibly once a year. When asking for a refund Chris (the CEO) asked what I experienced and what channel was having issues. He responded that his team would be working to fix the issue. Although that is kind I would still like a refund and responded this. I have not heard from him in roughly 2 weeks. At the end of the day if the app had worked when and how it was supposed to then I would not mind the $5 being spent. The fact that I used a free local news weather app and it did a significantly better job is frustrating. I would rather donate the $5 to them then spend it on this app.

  • Worthless if you expect alerts or any support Jul 2, 2017

    By fstevens2
    See edit at the end of this review: I emailed the developer, no answer, so hoping another user will know the answer to this: will push alerts be sent for your current location as well as the locations you select in "Watches & Warnings"? There haven't been any watches or warnings in my current location (which is also the location I have selected in Watches & Warnings) since I installed the app. If I'm only going to get alerts for specific locations I select, the app wouldn't be very useful. Edit and changed to 1 star - I've tried to contact the developer via Facebook, no response. One evening, our physical weather radio went off twice due to severe thunderstorms. I could see those alerts in this app, but only by going into it and looking for them - no alerts/notifications were sent even though the app is set up to generate them. I'll be deleting the app and asking for my money back.

  • This is the one! Aug 25, 2018

    By BillyRainbow
    I’ve been trying to find a free and easy way to listen to weather radio in Hawaii. You would think that, in this day and age, our government would provide a simple web link that you could click on, bookmark and return to easily that would play your local weather radio station. But no. Millions of tax dollars cannot figure that out. So I finally I decided to spring for this $3.99 app after failing to find a website or free app that does the job. (There used to be a free one that worked about 60% of the time but I can’t find it again). This one works 100% of the time, remembers my location and my favorite station and opens right to it when I want to listen. It even plays nicely in the background with other apps while I read email, the news, check the waves, etc. It also plays nicely with the iPhone timer app and stops playing after a set period of time. Love that robot voice to doze off to. Anyway, highly recommended, at least for my purposes. Aloha.

  • Stay safe with this app Jun 5, 2020

    By Joyce_Kilmer
    I downloaded this per the advice of our local weatherman, who is nothing short of a local legend after 24+ hours solid reporting during the Tuscaloosa tornado of April 28, 2011, a day I will never forget!! No matter how tech savvy you may or may not be, this app will work for you. It's very intuitive, and has lots of information with networks that span the entire nation, yet deliver accurate and timely local weather. I have alarms set for my location, as well as those of my children, and other relatives who are scattered across the country. The warnings wake me up before any other communication stream. I find the app to be more reliable and user friendly than my NOAA weather radio. All this, and I am using the free version! If you are worried, as I am, about your cell dying during a weather disaster, just keep a few power banks continuously charged..... you need them anyway. Don't wait.... if I can use this app, so can you.

  • More reliable than “real” radio Oct 27, 2019

    By Jen5250
    Weather radio is still a super easy and reliable way to get important weather information quickly, particularly when you don’t want or can’t be glued to your screen. This app lets you hear the radio if you have data, which is more reliable than radio signals these days. It also allows you to see the 7 day forecast, see the current weather stats, read warning information, and generally streamlines information that can be challenging to dig out of the NOAA website. This is an app that does exactly what it claims to, and does it very well. The only thing that holds me back from a 5 star rating is the lack of a way to pay to fully upgrade the app in one purchase. I don’t mind paying for additional features, they’re worth it and the developer needs to make a living like the rest of us. I just appreciate being able to do so 1x when possible, as opposed to when new features are added.

  • Almost a five! May 29, 2019

    By JerryFWC
    After buying and installing the app I began the easy process of setting up the weather stations I wanted to use. Strike one happens when the Wilmington, OH KILN is not on the list. This directly affects my location as NWS alerts for Fayette, Franklin, Wayne and Union Counties in Indiana are issued from Wilmington. Strike two happened when Union County Indiana was not even in the list of places and strike three happened when there was no listing for the NWS radio operating in Richmond, IN. So with all that why the four stars? Well otherwise this app is very well designed and laid out. Any link I clicked worked well and it looks good on my iPhone 8+. I’ve still not heard how an alert sounds but considering the severe weather in my area I expect that to change soon. Hopefully the app will be updated soon to fill in the missing items.

  • Works well. Aug 5, 2017

    By Cmorrison0826
    I work at a factory in Wichita Kansas. This app helps keep up to date with the rapidly changing weather conditions. As a voiceover user I must say this app is pretty easy to use. Most of the weather apps I have used in the past required me to jump through a few hoops in order for me to check the conditions. The only thing i wish that there was some kind of verbal announcement after the alert sound. For example, after the severe thunderstorm warning sound is played the next thing you would hear is "Severe thunderstorm warning "or "tornado warning." Mostly not a big deal to look at my phone after hearing the alert sound but would be nice for the times when I can't get to my phone because my hands are busy at work.

  • A very predictable app. Feb 5, 2020

    By comely carnivore
    Hi. I've enjoyed the app for several years. My primary interest are the stations in Oregon: usually Eugene. Once when Eugene Weather Radio was off the air, I visited the Portland station and roared with laughter when I discovered that the weather being announced was not for Portland Oregon, but Portland Maine. When it works, it works. When a station is off the air, it tends to stay off for days or sometimes weeks at a time. Not the fault of NOAA, but the app. Gathering weather feeds from anywhere and everywhere is no mean feat. All in all, a good app with consistent flaws and irritations: very human-like in those respects.

  • Much work to be done Jun 30, 2020

    By Pgeeski
    Please, developers, get down to business and take pride in your app! Many stations ( 8 for MN) are listed but only a few connect after buffering a few seconds. The rest only say “connecting” but never connect. This is frustrating as I am up in Northern MN, I can’t connect to my local reporting station. Would you please improve this app by fixing this. Also there are some stations that do report that aren’t listed at all particularly the Duluth MN station. Thanks for your attention to these matters.

  • NOAA weather radio app Apr 30, 2020

    By bethellar
    Paid $4.99, installed app, an basically nothing. Clicked on “contact us” link, asked for help, and can’t even send email within the app. Extreme weather is approaching today, and I’m afraid this app will continue to sleep through the predicted tornadoes. I need help or a refund. Was expecting “better than more expensive NOAA radios” with SAME codes that would activate my phone during the night when we’re most vulnerable. Right now, I have nothing. Update. App did notify me of severe weather 2 days ago, but was too general (not specific to my location). Tornado sirens were blaring before app notified me of danger. Would be useful with inclusion of S.A.M.E. coding.

  • Was once good Jul 9, 2017

    By Paulwiz
    This app was once absolutely fantastic but it's been worthless for the past like 12-15 months. Just prior to last summer I all of a sudden stopped receiving push notifications. I tried deleting the app, data, locations I have selected but nothing worked. I emailed the developer and received a response back, responded and never heard back. Finally, I saw there was an update back in the winter so I did the update...still nothing. I've deleted the app numerous times and sent several emails but no response and too this day I still don't receive push notifications. Wondering if anyone else does?

  • Needs some work!! May 13, 2018

    By Jayhawk Kevin
    I’ve had this weather app download for a few weeks now and I still cannot get my local NOAA weather radio station to load. I can get other stations to load. I keep getting a message that says that the station is offline. Not sure what this message means because I can receive my local NOAA weather radio station on my weather radio and police scanner. I’ve emailed the app designer twice but got no response. Would be a nice app if I could get this issue fixed since I don’t always have my weather radio or scanner with me for weather updates.

  • NOAA weather radio app May 4, 2020

    By rpsfarms
    During 2016 was able to use the app on my I phone and my iPad. Was extremely pleased as I am a farmer and it is the most dependable weather service available as far as accuracy. For some reason in 2017 I am unable to use the location from Lubbock Texas . It simply spins "Connecting " but never buffers. The Amarillo connection works every time . Other locations work , but never Lubbock or Plainview. I have tried to delete the app and renew it but nothing helps. It is absolutely not functional as far as the radio broadcast. Of course it brings up the page that can be viewed but I need the verbal feature. When working properly it is the same quality as the weather radio in my tractors. I need this feature to work. Otherwise my purchase of the app is now a waste. Currently I would give it no stars. And here we are in 2020 still doesn’t have the radio function , just continual buffering .

  • Waste of money! May 7, 2020

    By jane1958
    I totally agree with Irma! I purchased this app due to tornado watches in the area and I wanted to be alerted if there was severe weather in the area. We had several severe storms pass through the area and I didn’t receive one alert. I checked to see if my notifications were turned on properly and they were. I also experienced the ongoing “connecting” messages when trying to access my local radio but it never connects. I contacted Chris and he asked which station I was trying to connect to and I responded but I never heard back from him. I told him I wanted a refund but he’s never responded to that either. I guess I’ll just delete the app and count my losses. Don’t fall for this app. It doesn’t work. My local TV provides a much better app that actually works and it’s free!
