Storm Shield App Details

Named by's @Techland as one of the best weather apps for your iPhone and Apple Watch. Severe weather alerts for your exact location. Storm Shield gives you storm-based alerts for tornado, hurricane, flood, thunderstorm, winter storms and other life-threatening weather events via voice and push notification. Storm-based alerts help reduce false alarms by alerting you to severe weather based on your exact location within a county. County-based alerts can result in false alarms, warning you when your location in the county is not within the threatened area.

App Reviews

  • Solid and reliable alerts

    By stiger72
    If you are wanting an app that issues weather alerts. This is the app to use as there is a plethora of selections for almost any weather event out there.
  • Almost just right

    By Rad kind
    I have just downloaded it today. I really like the layout. It’s clean and it looks nice. I can see myself using it for the long term if it turns out to be reliable and stable. There is only one thing that I would really like to see changed. The past history on the radar playback only goes around 20 minutes. I prefer it longer, 1-2 hours. If there were an option to change this I would consider this my main weather app.
  • Beware paid features taken away

    By Gpsdaddy
    I bought this app because of its storm tracks, which worked without additional costs. Now you must subscribe to a monthly fee to get the storm tracks. There are other apps that do similar things with no monthly fees.
  • Communication Is Key

    By Noonie314
    I emailed this developer because I no longer receive weather radio alerts. I just wanted to know if I had to pay the subscription to receive that feature again. They sent an email without an answer. When I tried to click a ratings box it sent me to an insecure site. BAD BUSINESS storm shield! Updated Review: I appreciate Cheryl for answering my question and offering to test my location.
  • “Free”?

    By Jrick90
    I guess I’m confused. Before, you had to pay for the app. Now you’re promoting the app saying it’s free. But apparently not if you want to see future radar? Isn’t that the point of checking the forecast? To see future weather? I understand 0.99 isn’t a lot to pay but please stop promoting it all over TV to use this FREE app (specifically during tornado season) if I can’t check the radar coming my way without paying. Thanks.
  • What happened to alerts?

    By dapooh1
    This app was great when I first downloaded 2-3 years ago. But I’ve noticed I’m not getting alerts anymore...what gives?
  • Lost love

    By Dgomgr
    This was a great app. As a professional photographer I'm always looking at the weather forecast for my clients. I am willing to pay upfront for an app but un-willing to pay an extra 1.49 for future forecast when my other apps provide it with the original fee. So disappointed you've lost another loyal customer!
  • Solid alerts!

    By vetsac
    With the storms across Kansas and Oklahoma earlier this week, I’ve received numerous alerts for tornado watches and warnings, severe tstorms, and flood watches/warnings. Solid and reliable alerts for us!
  • Worthless in tornado weather

    By Momma of magda
    Twice when we have been under tornado warnings- WARNINGS, not watches-NOTHING popped up on Storm Shield. I wrote the developers the first time - they told me to reinstall. I did, and last night as the sirens were echoing, storm shield was silent. Do not depend on this app.
  • If you want alerts, you have to pay

    By PurpleLightning99
    I’ve had this app for years. It’s annoying that you have to pay now. I want to have weather alerts, specifically tornado alerts. Now that it’s tornado season I’ll be deleting this and downloading a different one.
