Although this app may not satisfy needs for all people living in hurricaneprone areas it is perfect for us in Alabama It is concise easy to use and meets our needs Well done ARC                 Outstanding
The app is crashing                 Crashing
La verdad que esta es una aplicación muy completa en comparación con otras app gratuitas ya que no solo te mantiene informado de los huracanes y tormentas También te entrena y te enseña cuales son las medidas a tomar en antes durante y después de un huracán En pocas palabras me encanta esta aplicación Gracias a la cruz roja americana por este regalo                 Excelente aplicacion
This app has ongoing issues Doesnt retain location information on iPad or iPhone Ive been dealing with the same problems for some time now Happens with the tornado app hurricane app and earthquake app from Red Cross No way to alert the app creator regarding these issues so Ive decided to rate the app as crap Hopefully someone will research and address these problems     Constant App Issues not retaining locations
Please consider adding data and tracking from the NOAA Central Pacific Hurricane Center That would be greatly appreciated by Hawaii Red Cross unit and Hawaii the 50th state residents           Add Central Pacific Hurricane Center
Were in Hawaii with Iselle and Julio bearing down on us and in the Tracker portion it says there are no hurricanes or tropical storms to track It says this even though its showing the tropical storm warnings        Not very good
During hurricane Rita this app was well needed But inspire of it all I survived This app today makes things a whole lot better                 Red Cross is Awesome
I just got a local weather alert saying there was a tropical storm in the Gulf and when I go to your app it doesnt even show it How useless is that The same thing happened last year with the hurricanes in Hawaii You need to fire your support analysts or get out of the business of telling weather     Useless if you dont show the storms
I feel much more prepared thanks to this app it has helped guide me and made me feel much more safe and ready                 Very informational
Wont start on iPad Air and iPad 4 Works on iPhone 5s           Crashes
Informative Covers just about everything Needs a good update to add badges tests and the like Wish there was more to the app              Great app
This app did send me an alert that Hurricane Ana was coming but it gives no other information no map info no track prediction etc Hawaii is part of the USA so give us full support     Poor Support for Hawaii
This is a great especially in the hurricane season I live in Florida and its hurricane season this app teaches me how to prepare for the worse Ive been living here in Fort Myers Florida for 26 years other than hurricane Andrew that I think it was the worst but it hit Miami thats like 160 miles away from me but I think that we are due for a big one here in Fort Myers Florida And at least I have this app thanks to Red Cross                 Great app Could be a lifesaver
Every time I open the app it immediately closes Come on programmers     Doesnt work on iPhone 6
So many features its surprising that it is free                 Great Free App
Old app was crashing so I downloaded the update Same thing Crashes on open Tried soft reset ect No good Liked the app when it worked better     Crash and burn
Doesnt show or alert for tropical storms hurricanes in HI     Dont use for Hawaii
This app gives excellent help in warning helping prepare for a possible upcoming disaster whether it be a hurricane tornado tropical storm or flooding Living in Florida we certainly need assistance in preparation for all of the above                 Disaster Assistance
Useless     Hurricane ap
Common sense you need to review                 Informative
Storms and hurricanes names are missing Add them and I would add the missing star              Needs names
Beyond Perfect                 I love this app
I got this app as my daughter just moved to Florida Reading the other reviews I didt know what to expect but the app wont even let me save her location as a monitored location Only monitors my current location Might help if a hurricane hits Illinois     RWS
Muy buena                 Excelente
No crashes as I track Gonzalo Still the best                 Tracking Gonzalo
The only feature I found even somewhat useful was the weather map Dont waste your time on this app Much better free hurricane apps available        Dont waste your time
App crashes when attempting to take knowledge test     Crashed
Outstanding app strongly believe everyone should have on their smartphones and home computer A life saver for sure                 A life saver
I love it A musthave app for anyone who lives in or travels through hurricaneprone areas Push alerts are great for keeping alert of quicklychanging weather conditions                 Amazing OneStop Hurricane Resource
They had a chance for this app to make a real difference in Hawaii this week and it flopped Practically nothing worked right Even with 2 active hurricanes on us there were no weather maps for Hawaii no shelters listed and it could track only ONE storm at a time the one that was not currently a threat The minute that the hurricane was downgraded to a tropical storm its track disappeared completely even though it was upon us at the time The menus are confusing and most eventually lead to a request for donations The emergency kit list looked promising but it crashed each time you tried to use it on the iPad so was useless The only thing it seemed to do right was pass through the national weather service storm alerts as text which you can get any number of other ways now As it is dont bet your life on this app     NOT READY FOR PRIME TIME
This is a really great app It provides alerts and warning as well as safety information It has a lot of really great features like a flash light strobe light and alarm It also lets you send a message to friends and family letting them know you are safe The only problem I had was sometimes the stone light wouldnt turn off When I would slide the switch it kept going When I turned it back in it got dimmer but kept going Closing the app stopped it though Overall great app              Great
Wish it were working properly           Great unstable app
Does not accurately show storm systems like other apps and sites     Bad at tracking storms
Prefer a meteorology app not a simplistic and crash prone list of what to do to get ready Track display not very useful if the app even finds any storms currently 3 named and app says none found The text is written for a youngster not an adult and the interface too clunky     Not great
Great learning app              Hurricane
Im sitting here in Hawaii with 2 hurricanes heading this way and this app says there are no alerts Whats up with that Boo     No help
I read the reviews and didnt expect much so I wasnt surprised when I kept popping out of the app onto my home page on my iPad Reminds me of Microsoft where something is introduced with the intention of working out the bugs as the complaints come in     Didnt work
I live on the Hawaiian Islands And with Tropical Storm Ana heading right for us and turning into a hurricane I turned to my Hurricane app for some info But the tracker showed nothing and said nothing about Ana at all even though it was all over the news So dont depend on the tracker at all It does have some helpful stuff on what to do in the event of an actual hurricane though     Lame
Havent had to use this app for an emergency yet but it does have a lot of useful info                 Hurricane
Great app when the radar works Were expecting our 8th tropical storm of the season this week Ive been able to follow ONE Very disappointed        No radar
The test does not allow you to put in the correct answer on the last badge the last question The answer is 6 inches of water but the moving scale only allows you to put 1 inch or more Therefore no one can get the badge           Hurricane test
Crashes on launch Has since installed on my 5s     Broken
I wanted an app with straightforward hurricane tracking and local connections Not so much background information that I already know A little cumbersome but I am keeping in case it provides good info for after a storm           Just ok
As a volunteer with emergency services highly recommend this resourceful app to all who have a compatible smart phone                 Great source of resources
Excellence is what Red Cross aims for With these new apps they have achieved it and then some What I write here applies to the apps for Earthquake Flood Hurricane Tornado and Wildfire Im vulnerable to all five Each of these apps provides information on what to do during the event right after then what to do for longer range recovery and now that you know its important how to plan ahead for the next one You can set the app to alert you when one of these events occurs near your current location and at other locations where family or friends live The shelter button will show a map of nearby shelters If you need driving directions from your current location press a button and there they are Each of these apps is also designed to teach Each one provides a test covering information relevant to the topic You can actually learn something There are other valuable Red Cross apps on first aid for people and for pets swimming donating blood Red Cross volunteer connections and shelters open across the entire US with addresses and current status For those so inclined these apps are also available in Spanish Just press a button Except pet first aid 1 all of these apps are free a group of gifts supported by donations of the American people                 Much improved
The weather map is not reliable Sometimes it shows weather conditions such as rain and other times it does not show any weather even when other weather apps are showing lots of rain clouds tornado watches high wind activity etc This app cannot be trusted        Cannot be trusted updated review
Really cool update like the new maps Im safe Make a plan and the tool kit Great improvement keep up the good work guys                 New update Rocks
Nice app out of the other that exist                 Good One
Im sure this app would be fantastic but it has an error when entering location that appears to be an SQL database problem on the server side Fix it Ill change my review     Server errors
The app is beautifully designed and it is easy to use Alerts and information are consistent and informative I can always depend on this app come hurricane season Its a must have                 Works well high quality design
