Program iEarthquakes 5/5
it's not working today 1/5
this app has been simple to use, and worked pretty well. but now it keeps crashing after just a few seconds. I hope that whatever the bug is it's fixed soon! Will try rebooting and if that works, i'll send a more positive review.
data at a glance 5/5
i like this program because it updates often and has good options
Quick updates 5/5
Living around the ring of fire it's good 2 be informed when & where EQ's are occurring...appreciate the magnitude & depth of the EQ's....
Fast and Easy 5/5
I greatly appreciate the push notifications.
Living in Hawaii, one needs to be aware of all activities around the Pacific Rim. Thank you!
Really enjoyable 5/5
I really enjoy checking out where there have been earthquakes! Including my own backyard.
In The Know 5/5
I had no idea earth had so many earthquakes until I got this app. I was notified about some of the earthquakes before I heard about them on the news.
Quick Earthquake Alert 5/5
This app has been very handy to keep abreast of worldwide earthquakes. I use in tandem with following Dutchsinse.com to see the overall predictions, locations & affects of seismic activity. This app sends alerts when they happen & Dutchsinse's YouTube daily videos fill in the details with scientific reasonings when, why & where to expect future activity.
I got this app more for curiosity than anything else but since I live in Southern California it has become a 'heads-up' for me in case of a nearby quake. It's very interesting to keep up with where they're happening around the world and their intensities in such an easy and quick way.
Great service! 5/5
Excellent App 5/5
By Rhea Allen
I love following what's happening around the earth. By setting my alerts I was informed within 2 minutes of the nuclear explosion in North Korea. I posted on Facebook before any news organizations.
Great app. On time updates, easy to use
Very informative app 5/5
Love it! Well written for the user with lots of educational information. Always works well with minimum problems.
By Sky Travel
I like the push notifications and the timelines of the alerts. Would like to also know the duration of the quakes. Excellent app!!!!
Earthquake App. 5/5
I truly enjoy having this app & the notification that it let us know just where an earthquake happened! Very useful especially to know if one was happening close by! Thanks for this informative app!!!
Good use of up to the minute data.
Excellent Ap 5/5
This Ap really helpful when living in an earthquake zone. Very clear and up to date info.
Highly recommend it.

Ok but mapping +3 years out-of-date 4/5
Fun to use, easy to navigate within app for an unsophisticated user. Need to update map option. Vacant land exists where buildings in my area are known to have existed for over 3 years. Update the map!
Product User 4/5
By RED's Twins
This is a pretty good ap. I have experienced a few crashes but other than that everything been good.
Very good app. 5/5
Can not say more.this app is very good .Easy to use and it works.
Without fanfare , tells me where every tremor , no matter how small ocurs .
Great App 5/5
I like this app very much. I check it every day to see what new earthquakes have occurred and when and where. It also shows tsunami alerts, and has a fantastic map system.
Please add this capability 2/5
This is a nice app but what it really needs is the ability to utilize the iPhone accelerometer to detect earthquakes and automatically share that data to the cloud and/or the USGS.
Only when enough similar readings are detected from a certain region within a narrow timeframe would the data be considered legitimate and then be pushed back out to the map for all users to view.
The app could also be active only at certain times of the day/night that the user defines. As well as only be active when connected to pre-defined wifi networks. Such as Home or work.
Another option would be to only take accelerometer reading when it is plugged into power (such as when on your night stand or connected to a computer USB).
The app could also use the iPhone GPS to disable sensor reading when moving. As well as only record seismic data when the app detects the iPhone is laying flat on its back.
Another option would be to disable the seismic sensor data output when a face is detected with the front facing camera.
Requiring the app to be running in the foreground would also further prevent false readings.
This could easily, quickly, and cheaply create a huge network of seismographs around the world.
Good App 5/5
Early on, there were a couple of issues, but they were addressed quickly. The App is now bullet-proof and gives info quickly. Whether one lives in a fault zone, is a student of geophysics, or is curious about the world underneath our feet, this is a good App.
Can’t Set Push Notification Threshold 2/5
When i try to set the push notification threshold the screen locks. It doesn’t go to another screen to select the level and I can’t return to the prior screen. Running IOS8.0.2 on iPhone 6. Want to set the threshold lower than 6 which is what the screen shows.
Great App! 5/5
Very informative , accurate & easy to use. Very well constructed app!
Great App! 5/5
Tons of great info on many types of natural disasters. Not just earthquakes. Very useful and informative!
I live in California, I like it. It's simple and quick and easy to use.
By Vali Hawkins Mitchell
I appreciate this site a lot. My only additional thought is I'm anxious for it to also alert for "high" tsunami alerts in my area.
Very good app 5/5
I look at this app daily. Super simple to use. Interesting to follow the pattern of quakes across the globe
By PR Prof
Good, quick-reporting app. Makes it easy to keep up with quakes.
Great app! 5/5
Earth Quake Lite 4/5
By Living on the line
Great app! Living on the west coast makes me appreciate this app a little more.
iPhone Version is LOUSY. iPad version is good. 3/5
Recent updates made this my favorite earthquake notification app!
However, it is the WORST iPhone Quake app. iPhone app is NOT as configurable as the iPad version - so I have to back down to 3 stars until it is improved. I don't know why there is such a huge difference in configurability in the two versions. The universality of the app is not universal. The iPhone version is USELESS, WEAK, so I just deleted it and keep the app on my iPad.
Great App 4/5
Great for those 'did we just have an earthquake?' moments. Nice to see the where and when, also I like that you can adjust the settings.
Very informative ...Thank you so much...!!!!
Great app. 5/5
Timely, plentiful and accurate data.
Use this all the time! 5/5
This is one of my "essential" apps! I have tried other earthquake apps but they are too busy. This app displays the info in a simple format that is easy to use and understand. I love that we can't control or predict earthquakes, yet they can happen anywhere. I just have to know "where" everyday. You cannot go wrong with this app!
Good app 5/5
By Lolo G-ma
This is my go to app, for earthquake info . Fast and accurate.
Great app 4/5
This is a great app, and it does what its made for, but it keeps closing on IOS7.0.3, please fix that bug, other than that, keep it up....
Great apps 5/5

I just purchased the push notification option in the app, (awesome).
Keep up the good work.

This is the best EARTHQUAKE app.
