App Description****ABOUT Touchstone Energy Weather Connection ****â€¨
Touchstone Energy Weather Connection (TEWC) is more than a weather app, it is a premium safety and security alerting application built upon a highly scalable, fully redundant, alerting infrastructure. With TEWC you will receive critical alerts via voice and push notification regarding life-threatening weather events. Enjoy the power of a NOAA Weather Radio, with all the convenience and precision of a smart phone.Â â€¨
â€˘Precise Alerts: TEWC provides more precise alerts than those offered by the typical consumer alerting services. You only receive an alert if your device or saved locations fall inside a watch/warning box
â€¨â€¨â€˘Follow Me: Follow me is a critical feature if you are on the go. This app will alert you when a new watch/warning is issued for your location without you having to do anythingâ€¨
â€¨â€˘Friends and Family: Touchstone Energy Weather Connection can follow your current location and alert you to dangerous weather but you can also save an additional FIVE fixed locations. This means you can ensure friends and family at school, out of state, at a ballgame, etc., are safe
â€¨â€¨â€˘Battery Management: Because this application uses location services to track the location of the device and provide precise alerts, the app will consume some battery. However, the developers have made a significant effort to conserve battery life. You can now control how much accuracy you want the application to use for your location and thus impact the battery management
â€¨â€¨â€˘Audio: Touchstone Energy Weather Connection provides audio alerts in the form of beeps followed by a brief description of the alert type
â€˘Custom Content: In areas with participating Touchstone Energy Cooperatives, users can receive custom alerts directly from the local Co-opâ€¨â€¨
â€˘Trusted Weather Provider: Weather Decision Technologies, Inc. is a weather-content and technology partner for many major weather brands in the U.S. Weather is our business and weather safety is our passion
