I am adding a request to the creator of this app. PLEASE CREATE A WAY FOR US TO POST THESE ALERTS ON FACEBOOK WHEN WE GET THEM! IT WILL ALERT PEOPLE TO THE CONSTANT ATTACKS ON ISRAEL THAT THEY ARE NIT AWARE OF. I feel immense sadness when I hear the alarm. But I realized I could do much more than cry, because the alarm is a reminder to pray!! When you hear the alarm, PRAY immediately for the protection and safety of the group(s) that are under attack at that moment. (The alarm tells you specifically which settlement is under attack). Pray quickly, because the people only have from 15 seconds to a minute to reach safety. This is not a time for long drawn out prayers, this is a time for a short, specific prayer to God Almighty for the protection of Israel.
It’s not that I can give a :-) or a thumbs up to see the Red Alert, it breaks my heart... and then I go into prayer for Israel and those places hit especially; for the safety and fear and dread and trauma that it will cause on the people, the destruction to the land. I do appreciate getting the notice and for that I am grateful because I can help in some little way through prayer. Hopefully all the people will remember that God loves them, that there is a plan and has evil and painful as it is on this earth right now,There can come a better day for all of us if we look to Him. God bless you, God bless your bravery… He said when we are weak he will be strong for us.
Repeat problem closing one particular pop up game advertisement
There is a pop up game advertisement that can only be closed by deleting the red alert app. The game’s X to close the advertisement is so high up and small in the left hand corner of the advertisement that for whatever reason no matter how you try to X out of it...it won’t register the action and let you close the game advertisement. I have had to delete and re- download the red alert app multiple times through out the last five days to just stay connected to what was happening. Please address this problem as soon as possible. Please note that this is now going to be my 6th or 7th time of re-downloading the red alert app 😬
Red Alert is very subtlety an app everyone should have. Pro or anti stands on Israel either position would get the message that the angel of death is still trying to take the first born. Mankind needs a savior and the Books of Moses tells us that when Issac asked father Abraham “where was the sacrificial lamb”, Abraham said “God would provide himself a lamb” and God has provided himself. Remember the servants that traveled to the mount? Abraham said, “The boy and I shall return.” Abraham believed in eternal life. If Issac were to be the sacrifice then Abraham trusted that God would resurrect him. So as King David said, “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem”, so this App reminds the world to pray and May the Love of God cover a multitude of sin as we pray!
Love the app- it’s made me much more aware of the situation in Israel. Notifications are great, but it’d be nice to also have a map of where rockets have been fired at. Also, the app crashes when you try to play the radio. And the comments section is pretty pointless. But the alerts are very helpful.
While I understand the need to make money, the fact that there are ads playing on an app that notifies people in real time about rocket attacks or terrorist infiltrations is insane to me. As soon as you open the app an ad pops up, so while your heart is in your throat you have to wait. The least the developer can do is suspend this until after the war. If you need to support your family, write a banner ad that says ‘I’ve suspended pop up ads to the app so people can view information uninterrupted, please donate so I can feed my family’ I’m sure people will rise to the occasion.
Google Ads are blocking me from seeing this app for weeks.
I have used this app since 2015. Now Google Ads are completely blockome from accessing it. They put up a black page that never goes away. If i tap it, an advertisement comes on snd never goes away. And there us jo escap x. I have complained numerous times and just tried now to access Ref Alert 2 x and same mess. Plus I complained to Google Ads yet again. They are targeting your app
I am not getting any sound. Checked all settings many times. Tried self test and no sound. The alerts show up but no sound is playing. Deleted and re-downloaded several times and same problem. Anyone have ideas?
I’ve had it for a while. But just deleted it because I could not silence the notifications. I’m at work (not living in Israel) and when Gaza wants to break bad my phone is just going off all the time and can’t silence it. An if it’s possible to do so, I can’t find it especially with the ads that always come up and cover the screen. That may sound petty considering what’s really happening but that’s my situation.
This app use to be awesome…Unfortunately due to the repeated ads that pop up upon opening it and having to wait until they’re finished just to view emergency alerts is completely ridiculous. I can understand that ads are needed to help pay for the maintenance of the app but the ads should never cover the entire viewing screen. Ads should only be viewed on a fraction of the upper or lower portion of the screen. The primary focus should be on the emergency…not ads that cover up the info.
The ads, while necessary, should not be allowed to be full screen - they all are. There is no way to get around them, and at least some of them never quit! Please find a way to make them smaller and / or force a close box. Again, there is, for some ads, no way to see the alert in the app, because the ad never goes away.
Ads are fine, however the ads on this app come up every time you open the app, even if you are switching apps momentarily. This is the kind of app where you need to see the information fast and there are unfortunately no other alternatives. The ads need to stop being full page and instead should just be a banner or bar ad on the of the page. Hopefully another app by another developer comes out soon.
Add a little button when you click on the area- you can see the city on a map, it doesn’t need to be the actual place of the rocket impact (although that would be preferable). It’s just to get a visual representation of where it is.
I get it. They want you to pay for the app, but having a screeching sound in an ad on an app that is sending alerts of rockets being sent is inappropriate. I’m ok with ads, but they shouldnt have sound. Also, you are subjected to an ad every time you refresh the screen. Way overboard.
Might it be technically possible to simultaneously post the Google Maps (or some other) aerial view of locations named in your alerts? Wonderful App and service! Doubles as a timely reminder when to more precisely offer up prayers of protection and safety.
This app was great a few years ago, but now an ad in Chinese language keeps popping up and completely takes over my iPad making the app useless ... ... and I have to hit the home button just to get rid of the app and the ad to try again, but the same thing happens again. I came to the App Store looking for a premium version but got me nowhere, therefore I have deleted the app.
There is evil which cares not for anything or anyone and comes to kill, destroy and devour. There is good which protects its own while trying not to cause torture or unleashed hostilities on others. Praying for Israel and comfort for all the innocents on both sides that suffer the consequences of evil!
Thank you as we can report what is not being reported or is falsely reported to keep our friends in America informed and prayerful. BTW. For the previous request for. Way to post to Facebook, I do a screen shot and post the screenshots to Facebook.
This app for alert of life threatening rockets, missiles, or other dangerous occurrences. But it has quite a few ads, some of which pop up frequently and require you to wait 5 seconds to clear it. People using this don’t have 5 seconds! I hope it’s an oversight and not greed trying to make money off an explosive alert app.
Brings reality to what is going on in Israel in a very annoying way, and that is just the interruptions cost by the rocket attacks notifications. I think many who download this app will eventually delete it because of the annoyance. It’s too bad the Israelis cannot just delete the rocket attacks “annoyance“.
I’ve NEVER seen an app with this many pop up adds! I don’t mind the price, which I’d gladly pay, but not everyone can afford it and this app is supposed to notify you when there’s an attack, but unless you pay, an add pops up every time you open the app and you have to wait through it before you find out if your life is in danger!
Whoever thought of placing a 5 second ad in the middle of an active alert has never needed this app. When you have only seconds to find shelter and then to be stymied at getting the vital location information you need because of an advert for a game is not only crazy but deadly.
Really need a way to turn off sounds! A vibrate setting would be great. Today, we wanted to be notified, but were with other people who were annoyed by the frequent alarms. My husband deleted the app in the end. Not what we want to have to do.
I mean like these people sound insane! The Chinese are flying to Mexico to cross the border? This is an app to warn about missile alerts not some crazy person declaring that Asians are illegally immigrating from Mexico!
It would really benefit me (an American with limited knowledge of The Land). The app would soooo much more please me if the cities were mentioned with their English/American names. Haifa should be Haifa. JOPPA should be Joppa. It would make it soooo much more relatable for this non-Israeli app user.
When i open the app it immediately goes to ads which can’t be skipped or stopped and i can’t get out of them! I can’t imagine having to rely on this app for my safety or the safety of all Israelis!! It didn’t use to be this way! Please fix it!!!!
I have been using this app since the war started. I get notifications A FEW MINUTES after the siren. And if I want to open and see where the rockets are, I have to watch an ad. Sometimes it is an add of 30 seconds-60 seconds. Shame on you!
