    WAFF 48 Storm Team app for iOS, Android


    The WAFF 48 Storm Team app is a FREE app featuring content from the WAFF 48 News weather team. The app includes push alerts for severe weather warnings and the ability to submit weather photos and videos to WAFF 48 News.

    The alerts are sent based on the device's location, using GPS. This means you don't have to select any particular county - you are simply warned if severe weather is threatening the current location of your device.

    You can customize what type or "class" of alert you wish to receive, or choose to select none. Severe weather is selected by default. Options include:

    • Tropical
    • Severe
    • Flood
    • Winter
    • Marine
    • Other
    • None

    "Severe" is the default selection if you opt-in on the first install of the app.

    To customize the alert settings in an iPhone, click the "i" icon in the top right corner of the app screen. Then, scroll down to the "Weather Alerts" and select which type of alert you want. Once you have selected your type, click "Done" at the top of the app screen.

    If you are running iOS 5.0 or newer, you can also customize how you want your alerts displayed. To do this, go to the Settings app on your iPhone, then click "Notifications" and then select the WAFF 48 Storm Team app and follow the instructions.

    Other features include:

  • The ability to plot watch and warning outlines from either the US National Weather Service or Environment Canada. For example, users can overlay current radar over the outline of the latest severe thunderstorm warning.

  • "As you type" location searching will make adding additional locations to your favorite list easier and more intuitive. In addition, changes have been made to the overall user interface for location editing.
