Infantile presentation style
This app has a lot of great info but I have to agree with reviewer Stargirlx12, the format is dreadful. It’s like sitting through a tedious PowerPoint lecture from hell. The puns and jokes get old really quickly. At certain points in the Q&A the user is prompted to take or upload a photo of things like the gas shutoff or the main circuit breaker panel. If you choose not to do it , there’s no way to go further in this section. I don’t want to give access to my photos, to just any old app (even with ios14’s greater security over photos access). My breaker panel is right out in the open. I don’t want or need a picture of it. Same for the gas shutoff and my water heater. Yes my water heater is strapped in. It’s mandatory in this state ( because 40+ gallons of scalding hot water getting loose in an earthquake is never going to end well, to say nothing about natural gas hoses being ripped out of the wall). I don’t need to take a picture of it to know if it strapped in.
Great idea but not everyone is an idiot
I’m all for the purpose of upping your emergency preparedness. I think this is well thought out and the content doesn’t miss a beat. However, the FORMAT seems like it was made for five year olds, and that’s why I’m upset and probably won’t be using this. Instead of a straight up list, the app “helps” you prepare with a million slides/questions per topic that you need to choose an answer to and a backstory/paragraph here and there. You go question by question which takes forever. They then congratulate you (with an annoying pop up) for completing each step. With an app like this, I don’t want storytime. I’m not in kindergarten. I just want the info, which is excruciatingly difficult to get given the format for dummies. People- if you need an app congratulating you for getting your life in order or putting some snacks in a go bag, please work on your self-esteem. I rarely write app reviews but this is so frustrating I had to warn other intelligent human beings that while the idea is great, the execution leaves a lot to be desired. I realize the developers probably developed for the lowest common denominator, but please don’t forget the people who can think, process and make decisions for themselves.
New Version is Spot On
The app concept is great with lots of useful information. It’s nice to have lists and plans. It’s useful in gathering everything you need to be prepared, where to keep it, what to have on hand etc. Unfortunately the checklists don’t work. If you check something off it doesn’t update. Coming back to the list results in an unchecked box. It makes it hard to prepare when your lists never update. Edit: Since my initial review they have fixed the bug making this a highly usable app for preparing for emergencies. Lists now work and make it great for getting together what you need. Now a five star app.
Such a life saver
2020 opened my eyes to the fact I needed to get a handle on disaster prep but googling around online for help has been so overwhelming. harbor breaks it down easily, lets me keep track of all my supplies in one spot, and I can invite my family so we’re all in sync about our emergency family. I’m not one to leave reviews but, Seriously, I will not be surprised if this saves my family lives.
Buggy and can’t add my family
It crashes constantly, or simply won’t respond. Can’t even get through one activity. Neat idea but relatively useless if you can’t actually get through anything. My family installed the app but there’s no way to connect unless I invite them - which I can’t do because everyone uses the Apple private relay now. So nobody is connected. (No, I’m not going to invite anyone by their personal email). Really hope these issues get worked out, it could be a great utility.
Preparedness for the whole family
This app was exactly what I was looking for, for my wife and our three young kids. It helps us all prepare, but also shares simple things around the house like “where’s the water shutoff?” in case a leak happens when I’m not home. Fun and friendly too!
The BEST app for emergency preparedness.
I’ve tried every emergency preparedness app on the App Store, most of the ones on the play store, and a plethora of web apps. This one takes the cake. It’s user friendly without skimping on details. I highly recommend this for anyone who wants to be a little more prepared.
Finally some help
This app helps me get everything in order. I had go plans, stay plans, aging supplies, but nothing was organized. The quick training sessions makes it so easy to get prepped. Love it.
I’ve been going thru and filling out the various pages, however it crashes kind of a lot, when I press “next.” It’s crashed 3 times in 10 mins
A must have
Finally an app to help protect me and my family. Taking something overwhelming and making it simple and fun. Gorgeous design and easy to use. A lifesaver...literally!
I’ve never felt safer
This app finally makes my family feel safe. Thank you to the team for making such a scary process so joyful!
I feel safer
It’s very important to have one place to look in case of any emergencies. I feel a little safer having the app in my pocket.
Didn’t know how badly I needed this
Super helpful view of my regional risk profile and what I need to be doing to keep myself safe.
Thank you! So easy to use and (literally) a life saver.
Harbor has given me tremendous peace of mind. I have never felt more prepared for the unexpected.
