EMSC detects earthquakes using:

I really like this app a lot. I like the interface, the graphics, and the info it gives. But sometimes it doesn't work like I expect it to. At times, some of the smaller aftershocks I was tracking disappear from the list. When I set it to only quakes near me, sometimes it still gives me info for places that are on the other side of the world. Sometimes it doesn't display at all. I've tried some other apps, but I keep coming back to this one. I just wished it worked more consistently.

Hi Judy LastQuake can be slow due to huge traffic. We apologize. We're a not for profit NGO with free and ad-free services and doing the best with our means. We'd love to improve its services. If you can afford please donate or put a good rating to help us to secure sponsor. Thanks for your understanding

Excellent! I downloaded this right after my local news announced an earthquake, and sure enough, it showed up as the most recent quake plus all the pertinent details!! Clear, concise, vivid colors, super easy to use. Many thanks Developers, important in my area as we have had several small ones the past few years. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!😀

Why is the app telling me that it can't retrieve my current position even though it's on? Not able to figure out what I need to do to make this happen. Trying to view EQs "Near Me" and can't because of this. Using wi-fi tablet only with a very strong connection. Seemed to work fine before the Android Pie update. Now, when I open the app the page is dark and there's a spinning circle at the bottom. Have screenshot. Thanks for the replies! Works great now!
