Contacts phone number choice MUST be fixed!
Red Cross/ 3 Sided Cube — I'm a beta tester for the Red Cross, and have been telling you this for YEARS: You MUST fix the ability to choose which number from within each Contacts listing is to be called when the "I'm Safe" button is clicked. As it is, the top number on the Contact list is the default — there is no way to select WHICH number for the app to text. Are users to go through their Contacts list and rearrange all the phone numbers to appease the app quirks? Certainly a landline auto-message asking for 25¢ to place a call is not very convenient when the ceiling has fallen in during a natural disaster. Also, what about an option to send an "I'm Safe" email vs. texting?Without these options, the apps are pretty much worthless and do not meet with your mission statement. Your agency was created to SUPPORT those affected by emergencies. These apps are falling short.
Been with Red Cross for many years
I have saved a life, was taught how to swim, I have taken CPR and First Aid courses I have donated blood, volunteered, and I have seen first hand the unprecedented amount of volunteers that have been there during fires, earthquakes, tornadoes and hurricanes not to mention the wealth of knowledge and skills they put out there to help people learn what to do in a crisis! I have used these apps through many situations including Hurricane Mathew and Irma and did not have any problems whatsoever!!!! As a matter of fact, AT&T and Apple kept us up and running throughout! Thank you to all at the Red Cross for doing the world this outstanding service for so many years and keep up the great work!
Updates need to be quicker!
When this app is needed the most, it takes too long for the data to be updated. I have been watching the latest hurricane and it takes around 3 hours to update tracking information. The updates come every 6 hours but the app does not get updated as quickly. It should be as easy as changing a few data points since the cones are a standard algorithm.
Not showing correct locations
It has been fine until recently. It’s not updating the current locations of any storms, like it was waaaay off, not even just a little.. Now I’m worried since this has been my most accurate app up until now. The app is up to date, but the tracker is not.
Dint work with Irma??
I literally had Hurricane Irma on top of my island, I dint had electricity so i couldn't watch the news to see what's going, I try the app and it doesn't load whatsoever. I have now Hurricane Maria tomorrow, let's see if it works from tomorrow onward.
Free And Works
Used this app for several years works great for monitoring the hurricanes we get in Florida. Using it now for Dorian. Thanks to the developers for creating it and its free.
Red Cross picks up the slack between where your neighbors don’t have the capacity and when the government steps in.
I had so many alerts I finally had to delete the app just to get rid of all of the alerts, after ten minutes of deleting I saw no end in sight
As a trained disaster responder, I am delighted to see so many useful features. This could truly save lives.
Creepy and Intrusive
This app wants to track you at all times. It won’t work if you only want it to find your location while you use it. If you try to add a random location, the app demands to know who you “love” there - name and address. It’s Creepy.
Abuses notifications for donations
I used this app for several years for tracking storms that affected family members. However, I am removing it because I e just had two interruptions to ask for donations.
Just spins and says loading Hurricane. Map is cluttered with shelter data making it hard to see track. Should be an overlay
This app needs to stop crying wolf!
I have been receiving Flood Warnings for Omaha, Douglas County for weeks now. My sister lives there. I call her all alarmed and she tells me “nothing but blue skies”. No flooding here”. I’m getting ready to delete the app.
It keeps crashing every time I use it! What a ripoff!
Does not allow you to report any problems with the app to the developer. Says you can increase/decrease monitoring radius on map. NOT TRUE! Beginning to think this is a scam app.
