CodeRED Mobile Alert: upgraded mass notification system Android™ app

Emergency Communications NetworkCodeRED Mobile Alert app has released a major upgrade to enhance the CodeRED Mobile Alert application for Android, providing subscribers free geographically targeted mass notification system messages that save lives. The upgrade provides new features to improve the user experience and makes it even easier for subscribers to receive location-specific, often critical mass notification system messages throughout the United States and Canada from public safety officials who use the CodeRED mass notification system to protect and inform residents. Download the CodeRED Mobile Alert app using the Google Play™ store app.

Here is a list of the changes we made:

  • No more advertisements. The CodeRED Mobile Alert app is no longer ad-supported. The app now features an interactive tutorial and walks subscribers through the process of customizing notification preferences, including selecting the types of safety mass notification system messages they would like to receive and how they would like to be alerted to the message.
  • Redesigned navigation. Regional warnings are now even easier to access and view, with completely redesigned navigation. In one click, subscribers may load warnings near their current location, or immediately view active alerts.  Subscribers may now access historical weather alerts based on specific date and time ranges.
  • New settings screen. A revamped settings screen has made it easier for subscribers to manage the types of alerts they are interested in receiving and select an expanded personal warning radius for the app to deliver messages from organizations within a specific geographic reach.

A major update to the CodeRED Mobile Alert app for the iOS platform was released in August and is available for a free download on the App Store.
