WFXG Weather App for iOS & Android

The WFXG Weather app is a FREE app featuring content from the Fox54 FirstAlert team. The app includes push alerts for severe weather warnings and the ability to submit weather photos and videos to Fox54 News.

 

The alerts are sent based on the device's location, using GPS. This means you don't have to select any particular county - you are simply warned if severe weather is threatening the current location of your device.

You can customize what type or "class" of alert you wish to receive, or choose to select none. Severe weather is selected by default. Options include:

Tropical
Severe
Flood
Winter
Marine
Other
None


"Severe" is the default selection if you opt-in on the first install of the app.

To customize the alert settings in an iPhone, click the "i" icon in the top right corner of the app screen. Then, scroll down to the "Weather Alerts" and select which type of alert you want. Once you have selected your type, click "Done" at the top of the app screen.

If you are running iOS 5.0 or newer, you can also customize how you want your alerts displayed. To do this, go to the Settings app on your iPhone, then click "Notifications" and then select "WFXG Wx" and follow the instructions.

Other features include:

- The ability to plot watch and warning outlines from either the US National Weather Service or Environment Canada. For example, users can overlay current radar over the outline of the latest severe thunderstorm warning.

iMap WeatherRadio app for iOS

With iMapWeather Radio you will receive critical voice and text alerts on life-threatening weather events. Your iPhone will "wake up" and also "follow you" with alerts wherever you go. Listen with ease to local weather forecasts while you are on the move. Enjoy the power of a Weather Radio, with all the convenience and precision of a smart phone.

Features:
• More Precise Alerts: iMapWeather Radio provides more precise alerts than those offered by the typical consumer alerting service. Most alerting services will alert you to severe weather if you are in a county only partially covered by a watch/warning, even if you are not actually directly in the watch/warning. With iMapWeather Radio you only get an alert if your device or saved locations fall inside a watch/warning box. That means you are not disturbed by false alarms.
• Follow Me: Follow me is a critical feature if you are on the go. Imagine you are driving through severe weather, or trying to get away from severe weather. This app will alert you if you enter an area where a watch/warning is subsequently issued, without you having to do anything. You don't have to stop and add a new location. The app will make sure to deliver alerts to you no matter where you are.
• Friends and Family: iMapWeather Radio can follow your current location alerting you to dangerous weather, but you can also save five additional stationary locations. That means you can make sure friends and family, at school, out of state, at a ballgame, etc., are safe as well.
• Battery Management: The application is designed conserve your battery even though it uses GPS to give you alerts for your current location. We can't give away our secret sauce, but just know we are careful to limit the GPS usage and we dynamically reduce the usage to help extend battery life.
• Audio: iMapWeather Radio provides audio alerts in the form of beeps followed by a brief description of the alert type. The audio could wake you in the middle of the night or give you the information you need when you can't stop to look at the phone. Furthermore, you can always listen to the alerts and forecast for your area at any time.
• Video: In markets where local media partners participate, you can get streaming video of severe weather coverage. So, you can get up-to-the-minute coverage.
