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.

Latest version Storm Shield: 4.2.4

Version 4.2.4
• We squashed a bug that was causing current location to not track consistently (if permission was granted by the user) when the app was in the background. This affected some users more than others.

• In our continued testing of severe weather alert push notifications, weve confirmed that Storm Shield Apps push notifications are working as expected. When you receive a push notification from Storm Shield App, you will hear an audio notification that says the following: "Beep! Beep! Beep! The National Weather Service has issued a Name of Alert."

Please note that not all weather alerts that appear in Storm Shield App will produce a push notification.

Visit this FAQ about Storm Shield push notifications to learn more:

If alerting isnt performing as you expect, please provide more detail by filing a Support ticket from within your Storm Shield App, which provides us with additional diagnostic data, and we’ll be happy to look into it.

• Additional bug fixes and performance improvements are included in this release to resolve some minor and annoying app crash issues.

• WHATS UP NEXT: Our next update will address some bug fixes for Storm Shield Apple Watch, as well as continued performance improvements.
