I've had the app since it was created as i am one of the original contributors. I still use it everyday and loved it until recently. It seems the earthquake notification level has been lowered from 6.0 to 5.0. While these are interesting to the people in the affected area, they are rarely consequential. Now these "5.0s" are blowing up my phone and the app has become an annoyance. Please add a way to select the sensitivity so the moderate/ minor earthquakes can be filtered if desired. . Otherwise, the app is still great!
Still needs high res images for the sun instead of the tiny ones! But start screen is a good place to start. Would be nice to see a higher resolution image for the geomagnetic (alert zones) data is hardly an issue with it doubling every year for the same cost. The colour of the alerts earthquake map makes it almost un-viewable when zooming and otherwise.
Good event alerts, however, just being given a location with no representation of said alert doesn't help. Most people aren't walking atlases, so displaying alerts on the map (rudimentary, needs much improvement) would help. It's a good start, though.
The best app of it's kind!! Innovative... More will follow- none will be as good as this! Excellent work Ben
I've been getting all of the information from his youtube videos for over a year. Nice to have it in my hand.
Ben Da Man!
