Great news… the makers of the iMap WeatherRadio iPhone app have decided to make it free for one day, Thursday, May 19. The app is normally $9.99… and ABC 33/40 is a partner. Here is their news release this evening…
The tragic events caused by tornadoes this month in Alabama and the South have shown again the need for enhanced and additional approaches to nationwide alerting of tornado and severe weather outbreaks.
With advanced warnings on smartphones using Location-Based Services, people that are in harm’s way can be alerted even if they are not sitting in front of a television or in a location where they can hear sirens. This may allow those affected to react in time to avoid loss of life and property.
iMapWeather Radio Free for a Day!
* What is “Weather Radio Day”? WDT is offering the iMapWeather Radio iPhone application free to up to 100,000 people for one day only – the equivalent of a $1M contribution to weather safety nationwide (iTunes download is normally $9.99).
