Added the ability to view unconfirmed closings on the map and other minor updates.
WeatherThreat+ is the upgraded version of the standard WeatherThreat app.
The upgrades include:
The ability to insert an unconfirmed closing without an account. It will be displayed on the map along with other unconfirmed closings.
Subscribe to two schools or organizations to receive an instant alert the moment the organizations close.
This app allows anyone to view closings in the WeatherThreat network. Just download the app to view the closings. You do not need an account to view closings. Don't see your closings in your area? Ask your school or organization to sign up for a free account at WeatherThreat.com.
WeatherThreat+ is the upgraded version of the standard WeatherThreat app. WeatherThreat+ refreshes the closings map and closings map 20% more often than the standard WeatherThreat app. It also allows a user to submit closings and to sign up for a "confirmed" account, directly from the app. As an added bonus, this version allows the user to easily search for and subscribe to a maximum of two specific organizations to receive a notification soon after either of those organizations issues a closing or other relevant alert.
WeatherThreat.com creates one centralized source for school closings and other user-submitted alerts in the United States. It is one of the largest closings/alert systems of its kind in the U.S.. Alerts are automatically "picked up" and redistributed by local WeatherThreat.com media participants (see weatherthreat.com for a current list). Closings and alerts can also be viewed directly by consumers of this app.
Closings and other alerts are conveniently grouped by city on a map and detailed below the map as a text list.
Visit WeatherThreat.com to see a current list of participating media and their coverage areas. Users may still submit alerts with this app, even if a media organization is not currently covering the user's county; the user's closing(s) will be viewable by others who use this app.
This app is particularly beneficial for isolated schools, factories, and other organizations needing an economical method for notifying their employees, patrons, and members of important closings and other notifications. Those organizations can simply sign up for a free account (through the app, or at WeatherThreat.com) and then encourage their members and patrons to download WeatherThreat+ to view closings for that organization and to receive notifications when that organization issues a closing or other alert.
