  • Must give personal info to use app

    Yep, you must give them your personal information to use this app. That means they are tracking company’s employees, can’t imagine who would find that kind of information of value. The company who is paying the employee? ...or a competitor??? Doesn’t matter how good they are, they have no more business with our personal information than the average “anonymous-user” app gleans on a daily basis. Deleted.

    Why has this app not updated it's resolution? The iPhone 6 has been out for years and this app is still on the iPhone 5 resolution.

    no option to turn location off while not using the app. Make that option available! I don't like my location always running and draining my battery.
  • Overpriced & Delays

    Not only is the cost super high but we've experienced significant delays in our text alerts. They keep blaming it on the cell provider...annoying.

    If you are not aware of the level of this service and you spend a lot of time outdoors or supervise people outdoors I recommend you look into this company. They track every lightning strike in North America. This "app" is only a small piece of their technology. This is a service, yet not free is worth the cost if you are a company or corporation. Quite costly for an individual. To the company: please add an iPad app. I feel as if this was in the works years ago. Please add one. I pay a lot to have the service. Reward loyal customers with an app specific for the iPad and in the short term at least make the iPhone app viewable on the iPad with normal dimensions. My iPad running the iPhone app cuts off part of the top and left of the app for some reason. Summary: awesome service. Great iPhone app. Develop the iPad app like promised a long time ago

    In reading the previous reviews it appears the people not giving a high rating are people who do not subscribe to the PC version and they have no idea that this app is an adjunct to the PC version to assist those of us who are out on the field of play as a profession. This App is not for the person wanting to see what the weather is doing occasionally but for the use of Athletic Trainers, Stadium Supervisors, athletic event coordinators and people who have the interest of many people's safety out in public as a major concern. Thus the cost of the primary system is where the expense comes in and then the app allows you to be outside observing the event and what the weather is doing and not inside sitting at a desktop.

    WOW! Telvent has the best weather app in the market for precipitation and lightning alerting. Both the precipitation and lightning push alerting are very precise notifying time of impact, distance from current GPS position, and offering all clear push alerts. I have used while out boating and the precipitation alerts gave me 30 minutes lead time before arrival to allow me to get off the water before a squall line of thunderstorms arrived. It is a lifesaver app! For any person that values time spent outdoors, this app is the best available even at the price point. Every outdoor sporting coach, trainer, and team should consider subscribing!
