Storm Shield App Description

Named by's @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 • "I was in Oklahoma City during the tornado... we were right in its path. Your app literally was a life saver." - dcalk12 Benefits: • Get voice alerts just like a NOAA weather radio via push notification anywhere in the United States. • With Apple Watch, get a tap on your wrist when alerts are issued for your locations. • Add Storm Shield's widget to your Today screen to get quick access to active alerts for the first location in your app. • Touch Storm Shield's app icon on your 3D-Touch enabled iPhone for quick widget access. • Hi-Def radar map is your home screen so you can quickly see what's going on at your locations. • Long-tap on the map to get current conditions, hourly and daily forecasts. • Save additional locations to ensure family members stay safe. • Closings for Baltimore, Buffalo, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Denver, Detroit, Green Bay, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Lansing, Milwaukee, Nashville, Omaha, Tulsa.

Storm Shield App Reviews

  • Very Very Useful

    By Cocrules
    Being able to know future weather and dangers possibly harmful for life is always a plus and this does its job scarily well
  • No longer gives weather detail

    By Rebb42
    Update June 25,2019: the developer advised that the “weather statement” is a National Weather Service” decision. While those words mean nothing, it’s not the fault of the developers. Otherwise, in severe weather conditions, this app gives clear and loud alerts/warnings and we have relied on it for years. I changed my rating to 5. I appreciate the clarification from the developer. ************************* Previous review: This was a great app but the audible weather alert just says “weather authority has issued a statement”. That is unacceptable. For visually impaired and all others, we need to hear the actual alert details. Now we have to walk to the phone, open the app and read the alert. Please fix this problem quickly. Thank you.
  • Lightning alerts should be included FREE

    By HelloPretzel
    $0.99 for lightning alerts is petty. Include them in the free version.

    I like the alerts it gives for where I am at and where I live. It keeps me informed..
  • Love it but

    By lil nas x 69
    Only thing I don’t like is that you have to buy lightning warnings
  • Accuracy not reliable

    By WChesterpizza
    The timing of rain and percentage of possibility is way off. I don’t feel I can trust this app for rain chances. I do like the warnings for severe weather-that has been accurate and helpful.
  • Great app

    By brandt miller
    My personal meteorologist Mr. Joe Degregorio recommended this app, and based on what i am receiving on the alerts, he is once again correct to warn about potential severe weather. This app is amazing!
  • This App is amazing

    By RoyaltyPoo
    All around amazing this app accurately portrays and warns me of bad weather!
  • But....

    By hhtjifuvjuf
    This is a great app, but recently they’ve decided to charge extra for certain alerts & conditions, such as lightning. Go figure....
  • Save your $$

    By RikSan50!
    I've had this app for more than 2 years now. This is my third update to my review... Radar presentation is very good but somewhere along the line with an update, sometimes there’s no radar information. You have to close the app (double-click home button, close app) and restart it. It’s been like this now for about 4 months or so. Hope they can fix this.
