iOS Universal Weather
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 people are saying:

Note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
• 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, we've confirmed that Storm Shield App's 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.
