Pros and cons of Fire Finder - Wildfire Info, Images and More app for iPhone and iPad

Fire Finder - Wildfire Info, Images and More app good for

I used to be a wildland firefighter so I am always interested in following fires out here in the west. Even more so now that theyve become larger, more intense and much more dangerous. I use it not only to keep updated in my area, but I can also plan trips better with the info. Another important use that I always know what is happening with family and friends that live in fire prone areas. Info is fast and accurate and always up to date, what more can you can ask from a free app?
This app is a great way to keeps tabs on wildfires. Ive been using it for two years now. I had a data refresh problem and the dev was very quick to respond and fix the problem.

Some bad moments

Old fires. Fires that arent there. Cant get any new fires at all. Terrible app
Great idea, and great when it works, but that is 1 out of 100 chance at this point. Hopefully updates soon.
This app pulls from the INCIweb and calfire source feeds, which have the most up to date fire. Easy to use, and perfect for getting accurate reads on fires in your area. However, please do check the actual source feeds to ensure that the app has updated, especially when you are going into an area that may have active fires.
Hey, Florida has wildfires, too. Only the western states fires show up. That detail should be mentioned in the description.
Wish you would put the state the fire is in on with the name of it
There is a two thousand acre fire less than five miles away, doesnt show up on here, waste of money!
