Oh my god, this is not safe. App was wonderful around the time it first came out and my family relied on it. Now? The radar will not pull up or even attempt to load, and the warnings will appear much later than issued, sometimes even after the warning has already expired. Red Cross is relied upon, and this does not feel safe, considering that some local radars will not be compatible with mobile browsers.
