Easy to install It was really easy to install, and going to the website to upload your info was a breeze too, however, once installed on your phone, you are required to enter your username and password, okay, got that...but that's it? It doesn't take you to your location and give you any information like how hot or cold it is, what the weather is like in your area, nothing. It just says you have been logged in and your location will be monitored every 30 min. Grr...! I was hoping for a little more from this app...not just an emergency alert IF it does it at all. I currently have flash flood warnings in effect for my area, and I have received nothing as far as an alert. Hmmmm.....
