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, Broken Arrow, OK resident • "I was in Oklahoma City during the tornado... we were right in its path.

  • Paid for app

    By KcSoFlo
    Like other reviewers, I paid for the app that’s now free before update. Can get all these “paid subscription options” elsewhere for free. Shame on me the first time for wasting my money, second time not going to happen.
  • Used to be a great app

    By Fanfromoh
    Update - THE ALERTS STILL DON'T WORK! WE JUST HAD A TORNADO WARNING AND NO ALERTS LIKE IT USED TO GIVE! This app used to be great, but ever since the update I no longer receive weather alerts. All my settings are turned on to receive notifications from this app. Now it is just a typical radar app..... Bummer.
  • What is happening

    By simsimma4
    I’ve loved and recommended this app for 3 years now and now it’s not working. It keeps closing and won’t give notifications and I recently paid for the upgrade.
  • Great Program!

    By Carolina Cop
    I have used a lot of weather programs and this one is the best of the bunch without question!
  • I delete apps that change to subscription

    By Ah_mm44
    This new model of constantly trying to squeeze money, and nickel and dime us for every little app, has got to stop. The only way to stop this trend is to delete and stop supporting this scummy behavior and the equally scummy devs.
  • Worthless now

    By Weed Hater
    EW Scripps Company use to have a good app here. Now it’s useless for me unless I pay them more money per month, this after I had already purchased the app months ago. Monthly payments for an app is ridiculous, what’s next? Weekly payments? Then daily? Get over yourselves.
  • Crappy sluggish app

    By kckev63
    This use to be a great app providing some great information. At some time or another they’ve push out an update. Now they want money and the app continues to lock up on screens.
  • Won’t load

    By ffontana0325
    This app doesn’t work for me at all. Won’t load at all.
  • App purchase

    By Annette a loyal customer!
    When this app first started I purchased this app for $4.99. Now you want to charge for items that were free from the beginning at purchase that's not fair. I gave great reviews of this app to co-workers, family members and church members, but if you now have to pay a monthly fee for simple services that's crazy! There are other apps that are free. I will be telling friends to delete it.
  • Ok but don’t rely on it

    By Fried Pickle
    Never get updates. If I do it’s not prominent on the I watch. Never receive Alerts on the watch. Better apps for free.
