January 8, 2013

Las Vegas, NV - Jan 8, 2013 - Global Security Systems and Weather Decision Technologies released the Alert FM application on the iOS platform. An Android-compatible version is to be announced later in January 2013. The Alert FM app combines WDT's iMap weather radio app technology with the federal, state, and local alerts of GSS's Alert FM.

Users will have access to iMap's current weather conditions, extended forecast, weather notifications, and live weather radar for the Alert FM home Zip Code plus additional locations. The iMap follow me feature will also work with a smartphone's GPS to provide current weather conditions as you travel. Users will be able to receive federal, state, and local emergency alerts for their Alert FM home Zip Code. These emergency alerts might include presidential alerts, imminent danger notifications, Amber Alerts, school closing, road closures, evacuation notices, and other emergency instructions.

The Alert FM app is now available on the App Store.

For the capability to save more locations, receive push notifications and gain advanced weather features, users can upgrade to the Essentials or Premium version for $4.99 and $9.99 respectively.
