Updated version is horrible The app used to be so easy to use. You could select the magnitude EQ you want info on and then a world atlas would pop up. All you had to do was select the dot which indicated a quake and you would get the info. Now you have to scroll through a list of quakes and then select one of interest before seeing the map. To make it even worse every time you go back to the list it takes you back to the top of the list. Bottom line, it is no longer user friendly.
We can do better Having access to a long list of earthquakes is almost worthless. After an earthquake we cannot make a 'Did you feel it' report. We can't look at a map (on a Note 3) to see shake activity or browse around the world. Honestly, when a big one does hit, we will all reach for our phones. I can't emphasize enough how many kids you could reach with an interesting, engaging app. Time to catch up, this app does not reflect the tremendous work and insight USGS is known fow worldwide. 18F to the rescue! :)
Just downloaded this about a week ago. A friend highly recommended it. However, the app says it cannot connect to the website, or something along those lines. Is this due to our congress hating science and the site was shut down or is there another issue?
Love usgs but... I was looking for more of the world map feature available on the website where you can look at all of the recent earthquakes and click on the ones that interest you, the most. Online they are sorted by dot size and color to tell how recent and what size. That's what I was hoping to find here but no such luck.
Does not work correctly for some features which I would like. If you click on the Past Day Mag 2.5+ what comes up is 2.5 for the past hour with no data displayed. EDIT: the three dots that we might use for preferences does not work.
No longer works Upgraded to Android 5.1 and this hasn't worked since. All you get is text piled on top of each other and, "file failed to load," or, "not found." Useless!
This updated version includes map location in the feed and a more tablet friendly interface.
