Named by Time.coms @Techland as one of the best weather apps for your iPhone. The first app to give you severe weather alerts for your Apple Watch.

Severe weather alerts for your exact location. Storm Shield Weather Radio 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 or polygon alerts help reduce false alarms from county-based alerts by alerting you to severe weather based on your exact location within a county. Why is that important? Because county-based alerts can give you false alarms, warning you even if your location in the county is not within the threatened area.

What people are saying:
• Storm Shield "can keep you appraised of everything from severe thunderstorms to flash flooding... this kind of information can be a life-saver, as many of its loyal users have already attested." -

• "Has kept me up to date with all Winter Storm Watch and Warnings this winter. Very helpful for my winter hikes." - Matthew

• "A total life saver. I live in Chicago and we have winter storms... Storm Shield is on my side when my mom has to call the school requesting a snow day!" - Zachary34562

• 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 no matter where you are in the United States.

• With Storm Shields Apple Watch extension get a tap on your wrist any time severe weather alerts are issued for your locations.

• Share severe weather alerts with your family and friends to make sure they stay safe.

• Beautifully sharp radar map as your home screen so you can immediately see whats going on at your current and saved locations.

• Share your radar view with family and friends when severe weather is affecting them.

• See where NOAA watches and warnings are issued by switching map overlays.

• See Hurricane and Tropical Storm forecast tracks.

• Save five additional locations to make sure friends and family at home, work, or out of state stay safe.

• School Closings for Baltimore, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Denver, Detroit, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Tulsa and Buffalo.

• View current conditions, hourly and daily forecasts.

• Watch live video streams when available (usually during local coverage of severe weather in most cities listed below).

Battery tips:
• Storm Shield uses iOS Significant-Change Location and Background Refresh (not GPS) to balance location accuracy and battery life.

• Turn off Background Tracking and instead set one of your five locations to where you are most often.

Latest version Storm Shield: 3.9

Version 3.10:
• Squashed an annoying bug that was causing the radar imagery timestamp to be off by one hour for some users.

Version 3.9 - New features and changes:
• New hi-definition radar provides stunning precipitation detail. See freezing rain (pink) areas of radar so you know where hazardous road conditions are likely.

• Tap any storm alert polygon on the map to view info about that weather alert.

• New weather overlay called Snow Cover that shows you snow accumulation across the United States.

• In an active alerts detail screen, the audio play bar that spoke the text of the alert has been removed. (The text-to-speech service was not functioning correctly at times due to an unreliable back-end service).

• In the Weather conditions screen (after tapping More on the Location Card), the Forecast Audio play bar has been removed. (This was due to a weather technology change that does not supply the same data feed that the previous app version used.)

• The National Forecast story content is no longer provided.

• The Featured Stories content is no longer provided.
