    I use the weather channel one, works great and it warns me of any warnings or watches. I had WB, but had too many problems with it. It works great on my desktop computer however...

    Hey Guys, you get National Weather Service alerts delivered to both WeatherBug Free and Elite apps. I wouldn't recommend using a task killer on our app, just tweak the Preferences to adjust how it runs.

    J. Dub, do you know if the storm produced NWS alerts? Sometimes localized storms can pop up that are too small to get their attention. It could also be that our service that checks for active alerts either couldn't connect to our server or the alert had expired by the time it did check.

    Email any problems/comments to:
    weatherbug.android@gmail.com

    Thanks!

    Hey Alex, actually I noticed that the only time it DOES (which was today in fact for the first time ever) is when I'm stationary in one city. If I'm traveling through a storm or a storm is heading my way and I'm traveling it doesn't work. However, on weather bugs defense, when I traveled in the past I was using my GPS of google maps... Which Im thinkin may have blocked weather bug from using it's GPS capabilities... Which would explain not getting alerts... I'll keep this thread up as I test around more. Thanks for checkin in!

    Ah, that explains it.

    You can turn on Follow Me in the preferences and it will try and track you using the Update Interval setting. If Follow Me is off you have to run the app to get a new location fix.

    Also, multiple apps can get the GPS data at the same time.
