Storm Shield App Description

Named by's @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 Shield's 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 what's 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.

  • Awesome app

    By RoxannaS
    I’m very pleased with this app. The thing I like best about it is the accuracy of predictions for my area. I live in a small town and sometimes it’s difficult to get an accurate forecast.
  • Good Weather App

    By Mick's Game
    Since living in the Midwest, it's important to stay up on the weather. This app is a great tool for that. Although it's only as good as forecasters, it's usually reliable. I've grown to depend on it while planning my day or to making trips. I've had to contact programmers and they were quick and thorough with their updates and fixes. Update as of 1/2018-app is good, just the weather in Nebraska can be unpredictable. But I still rely on this app to give me some idea what is coming. Also had Snowcast app, but seems to have been zapped-irritating.
