This app could save lives. It also can help people find world info about family's stuck in epicentre areas. Great for visual tectonic movement, volcano ash advice when flying and up-to-date data with push notifications. Nice feature to add your own "felt it reports".
Volcanos and Earthquakes are the most devastating natrual disasters that exist. Not having the USGS would be irresponsible. If you live near a fault or volcano you should if not have this app then some way to inform you of upcoming or current geological disasters.
This app had great promise for me. When I installed it I was monitoring Mt Agung in Bali. As I write this review Mt Agung finally erupted and today flights were disrupted because of a code 3 alert. Photos on media show some quite violent events with large dust and smoke plumes. And what of this app? Nothing added despite 3 days and no update since October 20.. today is the 26th Nov. I realise you have a disclaimer. But really. Disappointed.
Very selective. No earthquakes or volcanos in the continental US are shown. This is a big problem, mainly if one lives near a volcano. The FAQs state ouright that there are no active volcanos in the continental US. This is NOT TRUE. According to the USGS data (on their website), there are a number of volcanos in the US now currently active, yet not shown on this app. Mt. Saint Helens, Mt. Rainier, Mt. Hood, Yosemite caldera, Mommouth Mountain, among others, are active in outgassing, as well as >3.0 Magnitude quakes.
One can't make it send notifications for a particular area other than their own. There are hardly any noticeable earthquakes where I live but I have friends in countries that are not like this. I would like notifications for there only.
Mr Ian hearnden Don't even think about downloading, just do it. Thoroughly informative app. I spent at least 20 minutes a day perusing the site. Best app I've ever come across. I'm amazed it's free. Though I have upgraded what only cost a couple of quid. One off payment what thoroughly recommend. A big well done to the guys who made this. If your into anything sizemological it's a must have. I heard about this app on YouTube. A channel called. Dutchsinse he covers earthquakes and volcanoes extremely well
