    I'm looking for recommendations for a NOAA weather app. I need something that will wake me up in the middle of the night in case of a severe weather warning. I don't have a NOAA radio and am hoping I can purchase an app for much cheaper than a weather radio. I've searched the app store and see there are MANY, but wanted some recommendations before I buy something that isn't going to do what I want it to do. Thanks!!

    If you want the performance of a NOAA radio - Get one. Period.

    Yes, there are apps that give warnings - but they are susceptible to issues - delay, loss of connectivity... - and I consider my iPhone with its apps as a primary information source backing-up the NOAA radio.

    That said - MyCast has been good... you can also get free warnings via text message from The WeatherChannel's web site - at least one their apps can be set-up for warnings as well.
