Great idea! by LadyX
This app is really neat in concept, but seems to have too many people on it that don’t take it seriously. That said there are some pretty funny messages. Basically this app has a map of the world with little alert flags whenever someone has left a comment about a disaster (or anything really). This allows you to see grouping of major incidents and get an idea what’s going on. The major flaw with this app is it relies on you and me to leave ‘notifications’ about something being wrong, and for some people ‘a dead possum on the side of the road’ or ‘anyone want some free kittens’ is an emergency / natural disaster. I think this app would do well if it also pulled automatic emergency from somewhere and displayed those in a way that is easy to separate from user comments. That way you can see trending as well as real data and pick your way through the jokers.
