Hi!! Does this app give you NOAA. Weather Radios?
No. Unfortunately, there is no app that will give you the NOAA radio. There used to be, but something changed, and now they don't exist anymore. Basically, if you want the NOAA radio info, then the only thing I can recommend is to get a weather radio and use it for your location.
Sorry if this doesn't help ya.
I think you can still get weather radio feeds through a police scanner app. I could be wrong though, but yes you use to but they do not offer apps like that anymore.
At a glance this was something I really wanted to check out. Specially to compare to the other various weather apps that I have. My only concern when I look a bit more in to this. I've noticed that the app hasn't received an update for almost over two years. The other is the app developer web site no longer exist. Do you know if they are still business? I would hate to purchase something that may have died out and the app is still around for odd reasons. So, I thought I ask you first or if you know if they have simply moved to another site?
I'm not sure to be honest, this app was promoted on Iaccessibility podcast just recently, I didn't listen to the podcast just went and checked out the app. They were promoting weather apps.
If you are looking for a Weather Radio app, get Weather Radio by WDT. Works great, and has all the same alerts as the weather app at the top of this page. Weather Radio is the best app out there.
