Your Life May Depend On It Why wait for the phone companies and government to decide on cell phone warning systems? This app will alert you to weather and civil emergency warnings no matter where you are. As others have said, the ability to select alert ringtones is the only feature lacking.

Works well but an acknowledge alert with option to ignore all in the area that triggered the alert for the next x hours would make it 5 star to me.

Today there were FOUR tornado warnings for my dad's county in Oklahoma and I was able to call him immediately to warn him. Worked flawlessly. Worth it
