The MyShake app -- developed by the UC Berkeley Seismology Lab, sponsored by the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services -- was the first app powered by ShakeAlert® to provide statewide earthquake early warning alerts in California. The app is one of the delivery modes of the California Earthquake Early Warning System.

MyShake provides earthquake early warnings in California, Oregon, and Washington for estimated magnitude 4.5 earthquakes and higher to phones in the light- heavy shaking areas. Alerts will not go out for all felt events, just damaging ones.

Negates it's usefulness completely by needing to keep location on. I truly don't understand why we can't (at least have the option to!) just SET a location so we aren't completely draining our battery. In a major earthquake, the power will likely go out (literally happened for our area last month for 30+ hours)... having a functional communication device is so important in those situations!

I no longer see Earthquake alert as a built-in OS feature in my Pixel 7. So I re-installed MyShake. Very useful app. Battery Saver mode in app's settings is turned Off so it can notify me well on time (hence the sticky notification). But surprised to see the battery consumption is very very high. Highest among all apps by a long margin. Even Google Maps (which I used for many hours today) usage is less than MyShake. I just want to get notified on time. Please please fix the battery drain issue.

The day after I downloaded it, this app warned me of an earthquake with enough time to get cove before I felt the shake, proving that this app does exactly what it's supposed to do! No ads, no frills, just peace of mind. My only complaint is that my phone battery definitely doesn't last as long with this app on. Totally worth it though! I don't have issues with extra notifications (cited by some reviewers) because you can select the area you want notifications for by going into the settings.
