Pros and cons of Weather Radio by WDT app for iPhone and iPad

Weather Radio by WDT app good for

I live in Oklahoma in the heart of Tornado alley and the App works great! Ive set the app to only notify on Tornado Watches and Warnings, and as Im watching the news and they get a new Tornado Warning, a few seconds later my phone goes off, alarming me to this new warning. App has not crashed on me as stated in other reviews... Very good app for those in Tornado Alley!
I would like it if we could have a Choice on what voices we can use with the app. I would love to have the ability to use Alex with it.
Love this app. One suggesggestion, how about an Apple Watch app!
Love this app. It has saved my bacon by alerting me of severe weather and tornadoes warnings in my immediate area as I travel or asleep at home during the night. After surviving the tornado in Tuscaloosa on 4/27/2011 this app is most appreciated.
I travel throughout the Midwest of the US often by car. Ive dodged some weather bullets thanks to Weather Radio.
Love this app! Ive used it for years and sometimes it alerts me before anyone else, including my actual weather radio. The lightning alerts are received seconds after I see lightning. It really is an amazing app that everyone needs.

Some bad moments

I was hoping the radio aspect would include all the arcane statistics, marine forecasts, etc., from NOAA. This seems to include only a very basic forecast reading.
Used to work but not anymore. Has this app been abandoned and orphaned?
App worked fine for a week or so and then suddenly started crashing at startup. It was good when it opened.
Fails many times. Storms with tornados came through and not once did the app notify for the bad weather, then next day that was sunny said flooding possible, yet no rain. Waste of app space.
Temperature is 5-8F degrees off, humidity 20% off, wind gusts dont display, wind speed is off and app has not updated for over an hour. This is due to the app getting its data from airports. And if you dont have an airport in your backyard, this is not the app for you. If they would also gather data from Weather Underground I would rate it five stars.
You have to wonder what exactly the money you spend on this app goes to, because its clearly not development. The app appears to have been abandoned by its developers.
