WEATHER ALERTS FOR YOUR EXACT LOCATION
Storm Shield is "a detail-rich app for weather bugs, with an emphasis on smart, active, automatic alerts for severe weather... Its ability to pinpoint data to your location could literally be a life-saver."
Turn your iOS device into an emergency weather radio. Get storm-based alerts for winter storm season, tornado, hurricane, flood, thunderstorm and other life-threatening weather events via voice and push notification. Storm Shield delivers alerts using NOAA polygon warnings.
Now with version 2.5: get School Closings for Baltimore, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Denver, Detroit, Indianapolis, Kansas City, and Tulsa.
HOW WEATHER ALERTS WORK
Storm Shield uses new precise storm-based alerts, whereas traditional county-based alerts (what you usually see on TV) can result in people at one end of a county receiving alerts for weather that will not impact them.
If your current or saved locations fall inside a NWS watch or warning box, you'll receive alerts from Storm Shield.
If your locations are outside a watch or warning box (even though you may be in the storm and the county), you would not receive a warning from Storm Shield.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
"Storm Shield is like having a sophisticated weather radio on your iPhone."
- The Unofficial Apple Weblog
"During the roughest part of the storm I was constantly getting push messages to my iPhone and iPad... Thanks for developing this amazing app!"
- Joe C.
Storm Shield is designed to make a negligible impact on your battery. The app never actually uses GPS. It uses Apple's Location Services, which can be turned on/off.
There is one known exception - iPhone 3 when running iOS 4.0+ does not honor the use of Apple's Location Services so it will use GPS. This could result in significant battery drain. Users on iPhone 3G running iOS 4.0+ should turn off Location Services in Settings when it's not needed.
Turn off Location Tracking and instead set one of your five locations to where you are most often.
Throttle up or down Storm Shield's Location Tracking to balance between location accuracy and battery life.
