Best quake app

Very intuitive and easy to understand

Best quake app

I am using this application on my iPhone 6S plus using iOS 9 and it works great. I have tried all the free earthquake apps, but this app is by far the best. Its worth the price of admission I can set a pin where Im tracking it and see all the earthquakes there and I can filter it closest to me etc. I can find out about a quake after a quake hits very quickly. Look no further this is the best earthquake app out there as Ive been using it for years and Ive tried them all.

Great app

Great app

Closest, really!!!

I love the app… But until it quits telling me that the closest earthquake is in eastern Turkey, when Im actually in Texas, Im a bit disappointed.

My go to earthquake app

I live in an earthquake prone area on the north coast of California. There was a hiccup recently with the USGS feeds, but the response of the developer corrected the issue. I have been using this app for several years, and I have tried others to track earthquakes. This app has been my go to app because it gives me the local coverage I want. Props to the developer for being responsive to issues. I like the pin colors that vary with magnitudes.

Abandoned App?

This app hasnt been updated since August of 2014, no wonder it isnt accurate anymore, use to be a great app

Great Layout but very delayed & No Alert

I really love this app. It has the best and easiest layout of all the quake apps. It has a lot of information thats easy to access. However I just noticed recently that the information is delayed a lot of times, sometimes by hours and a few times it was more than a day. It didnt used to be like that. Please fix this issue. Also what would make this app a lot greater is if it had an alert that you can set for earthquakes happening around you. With a cool alert sound. The other thing that would be really cool is if the fault lines were added to the map. That would take a little time but it would be nice to just have the major ones on the map, at least in California. I would definitely like to delete my other earthquake apps, but theyre the only one that alerts me with a voice that says "an earthquake has occurred!" And the other has a map of the faults. Would be nice to have it all in one app. If you could very soon, add an alert option at least, that would make this a 5 star rated app. I look forward to the next update.
