Named by Time.coms @Techland as one of the best weather apps for your iPhone and Apple Watch.

Severe weather alerts for your exact location. Storm Shield gives you storm-based alerts for tornado, hurricane, flood, thunderstorm, winter storms and other life-threatening weather events via voice and push notification.

Storm-based alerts help reduce false alarms by alerting you to severe weather based on your exact location within a county. County-based alerts can result in false alarms, warning you when your location in the county is not within the threatened area.

What people are saying:
• Storm Shield "alerted our family of the Broken Arrow, OK tornado, faster than the TV and tornado sirens." - Robyn, Broken Arrow, OK resident

• "I was in Oklahoma City during the tornado... we were right in its path. Your app literally was a life saver." - dcalk12

Benefits include:
• Get NOAA alerts just like a NOAA weather radio via voice and push notification anywhere in the United States.
• With Apple Watch, get a tap on your wrist when alerts are issued for your locations.
• Hi-Definition radar map is your home screen so you can immediately see whats going on at your locations.
• View current conditions, hourly and daily forecasts.

Pros and cons of Storm Shield app for iPhone and iPad

Storm Shield app good for

Great app, helps me keep track not only of home but also family all around the country.
This app is awesome for keeping up to date on not just local weather but my kids locations while at college
I like this weather app a lot. You can check weather updates in up to five citys. It also alerts you when a storm warning has been issued. Just this passed summer we had a tornado warning issued and I was able to take shelter quickly. Definitely worth it.
I love this app! I have saved my loved ones locations as well. This allows me to receive alerts faster than any other app and is always the most accurate. Useful and informative. Would highly recommend!
This app was advertised on my local news station. It was easy to set up, simple to customize (For example, I wont need tsunami warnings living in Tennessee USA).
I also use it to know the weather up north where my family is in Angola,NY(Buffalo) so I can check on them if its real bad.

Some bad moments

Last update was November 2015. I think its time for an update. I wish it didnt have location on all the time and had 3D Touch features. Please please please make an update.
Needs an update for latest iOS. App crashes before it opens fully. This is generally the only weather app I use. Since it wont load, I cant get watches or warnings at all.
This app has never failed me. If you are in the path of severe weather this app is consistently the first to let you know.
I love using this app. It alerts me no matter where I am if severe weather is coming!
I used Storm Shield when I lived in CO, because Im a fan of Mike Nelson the Meteorologist. The voice is still his that I hear for weather warnings in AZ! Its a great reminder of "home" every time an alert comes across my cell phone. Thanks
I depend on your app is very good best weather app I had ever keep me up to everyday .
