Reviews

Introduction

If you're looking for a way to receive reliable and accurate push notifications regarding the weather, here's an app you may want to consider. The NOAA Weather Radio app can be used on your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone and offers users the ability to listen to more than 200 NOAA Weather Radio All Hazards Broadcasts. Through this app you'll have access to the most up-to-date watches, warnings, forecasts, and advisories at any time of the day or night. These advisories are all straight from the National Weather Service.

Instant Alerts

With the NOAA Weather Radio apps you will be receiving instant push alerts the moment the hazard is issued. This app has been specifically designed for iOS 7 so you can look forward to a very smooth and functional user experience. Users have access to streaming of NOAA Broadcasts; in fact, there are more than 200 of these broadcasts to tune in to. These push notifications will obviously help you take the proper precautions but can even go so far as to save lives by alerting you of hazardous weather. And it's not just the current conditions; you'll also be able to view an in-depth four day forecast as long as you have an Internet connection.
