Named by Time.com'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's New

Version 4.7

APP IMPROVEMENTS:
• Widget: Storm Shield App now has a widget for the Today screen on your iOS device! This was a common user request, and we're excited this is now part of the app! Get quick access to active weather alerts, current conditions and a 5-hour forecast for the first location you have in your Storm Shield App. Be sure to enable your widget on your device's Today screen. Storm Shield's widget can also appear on your lock screen for super-quick access if you enabled it.

• 3D Touch: The app's icon is now enabled with 3D Touch, an Apple technology that senses how deeply you press the display in iPhone 6S and later iPhone models. By 3D touching the app icon on your iPhone, you can get quick access to active weather alerts, current conditions and a 5-hour forecast for the first location you have in your Storm Shield App, right from the home screen of your iPhone.

• A new Advanced feature allows you to select your preference to show on the Location Card at the bottom of the map either the 5-hour forecast Conditions or the 5-hour forecast Temperatures. This new preference also takes effect on Storm Shield's new Widget. To set your preference, on the Map screen tap Settings (the gear icon), then Advanced, and under 'Location Cards' select either 'Show Hourly Conditions' or 'Show Hourly Temperatures'.

• Tapping a location pin on the map shows a bubble with a new info button that opens the Location Details screen. (You can still tap the 'More' button on the Location Card at the bottom of the screen to access the same location information.)

BUG FIXES:
• This includes a patch for the bug fix in version 4.6 that was supposed to clear up duplicate saved locations in the app. Version 4.5 cleared up duplicate current locations, but turns out it did not handle all cases for duplicate saved locations. This version 4.7 should now resolve that for saved locations too. If, after installing version 4.7, your device is still affected by this, please submit a Support ticket from within your Storm Shield App, which provides us with additional diagnostic data, and we’ll look into it.

• Fixed a bug that caused an app crash if you had to delete and then quickly re-install the app (the app could crash if any app settings at the iOS system level were not cleared immediately when the app was deleted, due to some system level app settings that could remain cached for a few extra minutes).

• Additional Accessibility and Voice Over improvements for our visually-impaired users are included in this release.
