Impression and review of people to iPhone App [OPM Alert]!

    by Rippo806 on January 26, 2021 at 1:00 am

    You would think they would fix this app and the status after a year. The same ole problem, worthless.

  • Just installed this App...
    by Davidw56 on January 15, 2021 at 8:42 am

    ...and wanted to point out that under Settings, “Delayed Arrival” appears twice.

  • Information is not updated
    by Rogerswm on December 15, 2020 at 2:24 pm

    The details in this app with regard to COVID has not been updated since 07 May 2020.

  • Won’t open from menu anymore
    by MartinRCAPPREVIEWER on January 8, 2020 at 2:21 am

    App won’t open when clicking on it. Only way I can open is by opening it through the App Store.

  • App now useless
    by Noremac55x on January 8, 2020 at 12:09 am

    The app just crashes upon opening, and does not function in the background. Totally useless!

  • Used to be invaluable
    by yungstud on January 7, 2020 at 3:40 pm

    Now, on my iPhone 11 Pro, the app just crashes upon opening. It goes without saying that alert notifications don’t come through either. The dev team is apparently moving at the speed of government with keeping up to date.

  • Good if you’re in DC
    by GreyhoundsAreReallyFast on December 18, 2019 at 12:11 am

    It was pretty useful when I lived in DC. But in typical fashion, they seem to have forgotten that our government has offices and employees in all states and territories and across the globe.

  • Won’t launch anymore.
    by Darin Walker on December 16, 2019 at 4:08 pm

    Consistently crashes upon launch.

  • App is a failure; same folks want to run your healthcare
    by rdelat on December 13, 2019 at 9:46 am

    Crashes, doesn’t load, settings don’t work. If they can’t fix an app how do you expect them to manage your healthcare?

  • Was working great...but not now...
    by DrLuvgun on December 11, 2019 at 10:52 am

    This was a great way to check OPM status...but now it won’t open? Please fix!!

  • App won’t update
    by Rjva on November 12, 2019 at 1:52 pm

    App says to update, but the update is not happening. App support only opens the OPM website which is of course not helpful. Am I supposed to figure out which number to call to get App support?

  • No longer launching
    by TopDomino on November 1, 2019 at 11:50 am

    Used to work like a charm. Now it fails to launch.

  • Good, but needs a bit of polishing.
    by Adgen on June 28, 2019 at 9:34 pm

    This app does everything you would hope it would do. The data is accurate and is updated at the same time as the website. However, work needs to be done to correct the notification settings. I’m using the current version and the list of available notifications I can receive is duplicated. I’ve turned off “Open” in three different places, but still the notifications come. It got to the point that I just turned off app notifications all together.

  • Furlough options
    by wallace n lisa on March 3, 2019 at 6:33 pm

    Please add this

  • Daily alerts for open
    by Jonnyjohnjonns on February 27, 2019 at 11:37 am

    This is crazy, get a alert every night at 12:30 am saying open. I had to remove it. Please try to make something that works like it should.

  • Every time I want to go to work...
    by Comfortably Dutch on February 20, 2019 at 12:05 am

    ... it tells me we’re shut down. Every time I want to stay home it tells me to go to work. What gives?

  • Never has an app brought me so much joy
    by Danib62 on February 11, 2019 at 2:43 pm

    This is an app that’s sole purpose is to tell me that I don’t need to work. Never has a piece of code brought me so much joy. 5 stars is not nearly enough to capture the amount of happiness this app brings with its cheerful notifications from the benevolent ones at OPM.

  • Push notifications
    by Grande Manzana on December 11, 2018 at 10:31 am

    Using the iPhone XSM running iOS 12.1.1 and the app doesn't push notifications. Works on my 7plus running the same iOS platform. App needs some minor tweaking for compatibility. 4 stars as it works on my 7plus but 0 stars as it doesn’t work on the XSM. UPDATE: Reset all the alert notifications. Apps seems to work and push notifications to include on the lock screen.

  • Used to work fine
    by Gynoii on November 15, 2018 at 11:01 am

    I used to receive notifications normally regarding closures and delays but at some point all I ever received was daily status notifications...and now I just don’t receive any notifications.

  • Don’t download the latest update
    by DetroitGirlyGirl on November 15, 2018 at 8:39 am

    Now it’s frozen on November 13, 2018.

  • Date not accurate
    by iPhone user Maryland on November 15, 2018 at 5:46 am

    It currently states the operating status for November 13th. It’s now November 15th. Does this type of thing happen often? Questioning the usefulness of this app. The OPM website is also not current. Looks like they need more than one person double-checking this stuff is current every day. Looks really bad.

  • App Showing Data from Two Days Ago
    by DLMSantiago on November 15, 2018 at 4:17 am

    Doesn't push alerts or show correct day. Used to work.

  • App
    by Coffeeman0 on October 16, 2018 at 6:31 am

    The alerts are not working

  • Since March, sending open status almost daily
    by Jenlcaine on June 16, 2018 at 4:11 am

    I’ve had this app for years without issue and ever since our last day off due to weather this app has been sending me open statuses almost daily. It stops for a few days and then starts again. I’ve gotten them on Saturday’s so not just M-F. The settings tab never opens up, the app just thinks and thinks and then settings tab goes away completely. I reported this in May initially. Please fix this app! Thank you.

  • Out of date
    by fearlesspaula on April 27, 2018 at 4:12 am

    Sends a notification of operating at status EVERY night just past midnight. Not useful.

  • Alerts work, settings options don't
    by DCgnat on April 7, 2018 at 3:08 pm

    Successfully communicates operating status daily, whether you want it to or not! I have my settings configured to NOT provide a nightly alert and it does anyway. I also have the individual alerts sets to NOT alert me if status is OPEN. Yet every night a get an alert that it's open the next day. Assuming that most people are primarily interested in closures for weather or other reasons, you should probably make the settings work so that you can actually only be notified of closures.

  • 5 star
    by Shoeheadjeezy on March 26, 2018 at 4:21 am

    Sends me a notification everyday

  • Useless
    by Jobu4444 on March 22, 2018 at 6:17 pm

    Doesn’t send alerts. No better than getting on the Internet and checking the OPM website. A perfect metaphor for our government - it doesn’t work as advertised.

  • iPhone X
    by FFDR06 on March 22, 2018 at 2:24 pm

    Please make it iPhone X compatible.

  • Shut Down
    by BlaqueButterfly12 on March 22, 2018 at 11:06 am

    I have the app loaded on my phone but it won’t completely open. Not sure why though

  • Terrible
    by FormerFanOfOKL on March 21, 2018 at 12:25 pm

    Doesn’t alert me when the status changes, have to check manually, which makes it useless

  • Works but only if I open it
    by massysett on March 21, 2018 at 9:29 am

    Have had it for at least a year and it has never once sent a push notification. I checked all settings in the app and in iOS. For notifications I get the OPM emails. They tend to come an hour late but at least they come, and then gmail notifies me. Without notifications this app is kind of useless because you might as well just use Safari and go to the OPM website.

  • No alerts
    by Fletch34 on March 2, 2018 at 10:06 am

    The stupid thing never sends me alerts. I’ve driven all the way into work (to include today) when it was closed.

  • Settings won’t display
    by AngelP3D on February 24, 2018 at 10:28 am

    I’ve used the app on previous phones but now I can’t get to settings anymore.

  • Crashes upon opening
    by Lesliemak on February 9, 2018 at 8:17 pm

    Every time the same thing...crashes at opening. Possibly because of over use by bewildered federal employees trying to access it at keys times with all the confusion on federal furloughs. But that’s when we need to view it and it doesn’t show updates in a long time. Please check it out for crash enhancements and updates .

    by Bea Attitude on January 23, 2018 at 2:15 am

    This is my “Go-To” App. One stop shop. The easiest way to eliminate the middle-man!

  • Is it supposed to alert re: operating status EVERY SINGLE DAY?
    by Pirula37 on January 15, 2018 at 12:17 pm

    ..or is this a new thing? Like even in regular weather too? Thanks, Jamie

  • And the hits keep on failing.
    by wedge07 on January 6, 2018 at 1:49 pm

    Outdated. Slow. Needs gentle (and constant) prodding to work. Hey OPM... a little love?

  • Absolutely great app but ...
    by MarkusKrazey on December 3, 2017 at 2:35 am

    It disappeared from the App Store for a short time in August/September/October. I accidentally deleted the app, and all I got from the App Store was “no longer available in your countries App Store.” I kept on checking the store for it. So glad it’s back. I was worried I’d have to start watching the news again just to get 2017/2018 closures.

  • Needs updating
    by Roi Des Rois on July 7, 2017 at 12:45 pm

    Outdated app (last update July 2016). This used to work ok back in the day but they only updated for iOS 8 01/2016 when iOS 9 was already out. Now iOS 10 is out and still nothing. Either take this non-working app down or update it. Figures that the government can't manage anything properly, even a small app.

  • Add holidays
    by prescious18g on April 15, 2017 at 1:33 pm

    Add federal holidays.

  • To the point.
    by Juicy J202 on March 14, 2017 at 3:13 am

    It does exactly what you would need it to do...Notify you of alerts.

  • Day of the month really small
    by NickC-Bradenton on January 30, 2017 at 9:00 am

    Could you make the day of the month any smaller &$€¥%# What about having the day of the week (amazing concept)

  • Works great!!!!
    by Richshare on February 10, 2016 at 3:15 am

    I get notified right away. I get up early in the morning, and to see the notification already there, is nice to know what is going on. It serves its purpose.

  • Failure
    by DC FF on January 29, 2016 at 3:05 am

    Has never pushed alerts always has to be manually refreshed.

  • Does its job
    by Joeyjna on January 28, 2016 at 1:50 am

    Work as expected alerts are simply and on time.

  • Doesn't work
    by Sbll on January 27, 2016 at 2:30 am

    Push notifications don't work. It is supposed be an "alert" like the title of the app. There is no alert if you don't get push notifications. The app needs a help

  • It does one thing well
    by chang2304923 on January 26, 2016 at 6:08 pm

    During the big snowstorm in DC, I was happily sipping hot apple cider reading a book while my friends were madly hitting refresh on the opm website to find out if we needed to go into the office the next day. I got a little push notification at the same time they got the news. Thanks OPM! Obviously a pretty useless app if you're not a federal worker or a DC employee whose work schedule is tied to OPM announcements, by if you are - super handy.

  • Works well
    by Kittencuddler on January 25, 2016 at 11:29 pm

    I've noticed if you are watching TV, they know before the APP. But it's nice to have cause if your not watching TV or out, you can still know if you need to go to work or not. It has worked well for my family.

  • Park is closed...moose out front should have told you
    by Fed employee 7649823 on January 25, 2016 at 12:44 am

    The local news and opm website have the federal government closed tomorrow...not the opm app. When the federal government recommends getting the app for the most up to date info they might want to actually update the information. Way to drop the ball opm.
