Editors' Review

Earth Alerts lets you monitor extreme weather and other natural occurrences from all over the world through its streamlined interface. Once you configure this tool, you'll always know ahead of time when a hurricane may be on its way or when there's a good chance of a tornado in your area.

Pros

Extensive information: Through this app, you can find out all about what's going on in the world, as well as that's going on right in your neighborhood. You can add specific locations to monitor, and you can also browse the list of warnings from other areas around the world. Selecting an alert brings up a detailed explanation of what's going on at the moment, and you can also follow links at the bottom of the page to the Web sites of the National Hurricane Center, the Central Pacific Hurricane Center, and the Joint Typhoon Warning Center.

Types of alerts: When you've entered a location or locations that you'd like to monitor, you can also configure alerts, so you'll be notified when something is going on in your area. Options include Visual and Sound alerts for the computer, or you can choose to send the alerts straight to your mobile device.

Cons

Locators: The Zip Code and City locator didn't always work during our tests. The program is set up in such a way that, if these search features don't work, you can't enter the location you wanted to. There is no option to manually add a location to your list.

Automatic start: Earth Alerts automatically starts when your computer turns on. While you may want this some of the time, it would be nice if you had the ability to turn this feature off.

Bottom Line

Earth Alerts is an innovative free program that brings up all sorts of data on weather and other natural phenomena and consolidates it. Especially if you live in an area prone to some of the weather and other events tracked through the app, this is a nice program to have on hand.
