About this app

Earthquake Network is the most comprehensive app on earthquakes and for most countries of the world it is the only earthquake early warning system able to alert you before the seismic waves. More details about the research project at

Main features:

- Earthquake early warnings
- User's reports on felt earthquakes
- Earthquake data from national and international seismic networks starting from magnitude 0.0
- Earthquake notifications through voice synthesizer (only PRO version)

The Earthquake Network research project develops a smartphone-based earthquake early warning system able to detect earthquakes in real time and to alert the population in advance. Smartphones are able to detect earthquakes thanks to the accelerometer on-board each device. When an earthquake is detected, users with the application installed are immediatly alerted. Since earthquake waves travel at a finite speed (from 5 to 10 km/s) it is possible to alert the population not yet reached by the damaging waves of the earthquake. For the scientific details about the project please refer to the Frontiers scientific journal at

Note that the information on earthquakes detected by national and international seismic networks is usually published with a delay ranging from a few minutes to many hours, depending on the seismic network.

Great app with a ton of information available. Highly recommended. One question: Why do I get the rapid "busy telephone" sound when my phone is set down and how do I mute that? I have to kill the app at night because this alert goes off every 5 to 10 minutes. I have seen one mention in a review of this same sound. It does not correlate with any alert settings that I can see.

I like the ability to adjust the notifications to my personal needs; however, everytime I connect it to my charger, this app supercedes ALL notification settings on my phone, including the settings in my other apps. I get the same annoying alarm type notification for ALL my notifications while my phone is charging, even if my phone is set to silent. I've tried reconfiguring every setting on the app as well as my phone yet still can't resolve the issue. I paid for the pro features, so disappointed

You probably enabled the real time alert on smartphone movements. Disable it or set sensitivity to low :-)

Works well once configured. Even better with a subscription service and pro version. Try the free version First like I did learn about the program and test it out. I decided to switch over from learning about it to using it. This was because of an earthquake I was informed about as what's happening at the afterwards and not before. But the idea was there and the timing was great I wanted a better time response and this comes with the paid version. Very awesome and satisfied. California USA
