I don’t like the update 2/5
Prior to the update I could tap on alert that was two days old and it would bring up the information. Now I tap on alert of an hour ago and it does not show me the location or the information it’s very frustrating. We need to have a little more history being saved on our locations.
Not a great app 1/5
By Indio, Ca
Have had this app on my phone 4 over a year & This app never informs me about an earthquake or a tremor have had several tremors near me & it has yet 2 notify me.
Deleting old alerts 2/5
How do you delete all the alerts on this app I have hundreds of alerts that I can't get rid of that are taking up storage space
Super helpful — love this app.
Hit or miss 2/5
Works sometimes but doesn’t at other times. Alerts of earthquakes are spotty as the app doesn’t even know of an event that happened where I live in CA.
The location selection is very hard to select international locations. In fact it doesn’t even work anymore.
Not too reliable!
Earthquake notification 1/5
This application is useless. I get no notifications for any emergency. The local news has better emergency notification system in place. I am uninstalling this.
1 Star for iPad, 3 Stars for iPhone 3/5
By Mick Gator Fan
The app was marginal in prior versions. My iPad 2 cannot handle iOS 10, so I had to delete the app from the iPad.
The new version shows a lot of earthquakes but would benefit from the ability to filter by date range in order to see only the most recent quakes or only quakes from last week, for example.
In the past, I had trouble with alerts and locations. Since I know nothing about the Flickr app that Earthquake uses, I chose not to set any locations or alerts at this time.
Solid resource! 5/5
Thank you Red Cross.
Red Cross earthquake 1/5
No report on Mexico !!!!! 09/19
Terrible app 1/5
By Captain Kraken
Just went through an earthquake and this app 15 min later is still saying all is well. It was not major but twitter and many other apps already reported the quake location and intensity. This app has yet to report it. Useless!
Was a good app 2/5
By Ritchie Rich
Used to work fairly well but last several versions don't send me alerts even though my settings are correct. It also frequently crashes. Check alternative earthquake apps - theres many.
Bad App, Bad Organization 1/5
Bad app steals my my time, just like they steal supplies from churches and hamburgers from volunteers.
Not useful 1/5
I wanted an app that would tell me if that was an earthquake I just felt, but updates are delayed too much and it's faster for me to check the USGS site. Also, I have a fairly large region because I want to know if there's a if enough one originating 40 miles away that I might feel...but it keeps telling me about little ones. Tell me about just the big ones far away, but smaller ones close by. I want to know what I might actually have felt!
App failed 1/5
Just had an earthquake less than a mile from my location and received no notification. Useless.
Just had an earthquake in MT & app wouldn't open and has failed to locate internet connection. Will delete and try to reload but I don't hold out hope.
Can't add new alerts and haven't received any alerts 1/5
Since the latest update, I cannot add new alerts. Stopped receiving alerts at the same time. Needs a lot of updates.
Keeps crashing 1/5
By Still useless
I haven't been getting notifications so I tried to get i to the app to adjust locations to see if that helped but the app crashed. Can't even get into it to send a report.
American Red Cross 5/5
This app is great! To those of you who say it's bad because of the quizzes, have your kid take them. I think this is a excellent app!
Lots of useful information 5/5
Essential app for those in earthquake prone areas.
My husband was at home this morning and called me and two minutes later I got the notice from the app you have to set a radius and be sure and click done when finished or it will not set
No longer works 1/5
Used to be a great app. Now if you attempt to set up warning for earthquake more than 0 miles radius, the app quits.
Gotta find a new app
They have ruined the app 1/5
By Craig Duck
This app used to be great. They have stripped down the interface to the point it is unusable and designed for the dumbest of people.
There needs to be an expert mode that brings up the important stuff like the earthquake list and shake maps on a zoomable map to limit or expand your search radius
I don't want or need the fluff like: Prepare and quizzes.
I want the old app back.
The maps used with this app need to be much better in order to track the storm in more detail. The current maps used do not show the towns or islands mentioned in the alerts given for the Philippines.
Great App. Very Useful 5/5
By OKC Customer
I like this app. I programmed it with family addresses in other city's and other states. As well as the address of my house and my job. Anytime there is an earthquake at any of those locations this app notifies me. And since I live in Oklahoma, the app is always going off because there is an earthquake just about once a day. Very good app, it does what it says and I like it.
Conceptually nice but still very buggy. 1/5
Still very buggy. I still cannot select the 250 miles radius without the app crashing. Though this was resolved in previous version.
Has gotten worse over time 1/5
Have used the app for several years. I used to really like it. Seems to have significantly degraded over time with several updates. Not as user friendly and performance is pretty bad.
Data hog 2/5
By Ascendo User
Works okay but uses up a huge amount of data storage on my phone.
Earthquake App(Red Cross) 5/5
Very useful assistant for preparing for an earthquake!
Awesome App 5/5
People complaining about mag magnitude 0.2 being displayed all you need to do is go into the settings of the location you're monitoring and you can send it from 0.0 all way up to 10.0 and it only monitor anything above what you have it set at.
Not useful 1/5
We had a quake here in Cleveland County OK about 7:00 am this am (9/3/16). House shook, cabinet doors opened. It never happened according to this app.
Crashes when trying to make adjustments to radius. Previous version was ok. This one, not so much.
Super buggy 1/5
This version is very buggy and hasn't been monitoring locations, it's not allowing me to add locations or people either. Red Cross you can do better. If our donor dollars are paying for this app then you need to fire the company that did it.
Lacking the last few months 2/5
Used to be a great app. My favorite was that there were verbal earthquake alerts; that has since disappeared. Also, he last few months, my radius resets to 0, even after saving, so I get zero alerts. There are definitely some bugs that need fixed. Now when trying to adjust my radius the app crashes. I've deleted and reinstalled hoping something will be fixed. Either way, they need to take it back to how it was last year.
Adjust notifications 3/5
The app is ok - does what is needed. I wish there was a way to adjust when it sends me notifications. I live in Washington state where there are many earthquakes - often several a day. I don't need to know about earthquakes that measure 0.4, 0.6 on the scale. I think Seahawks fans can make bigger earthquakes than those! Would be great if I could adjust it to alert me only when earthquakes happen that are over 3 on the scale.
Used to be good 2/5
It used to be great, but after some upgrades it pretty much became useless because it does not repeat your settings, want to default to other things, etc. I am uninstalling this
Great update 5/5
This app is great for warning me of earthquakes and giving me the information to prep.
Works great. 4/5
Was able to easily add multiple locations and people where appropriate. Correctly identified/displayed a recent earthquake. The app works great!
I have dropped my rating to 1 star. I have everything set correctly but I don't receive badge notifications anymore. Seems the developers have gone backwards for improving the app.
If I have my radius and magnitude set it notifies me which is great. But there are a few problems since the update. It use to let me see details if I clicked on the alert but doesn't now. Also, it would show on the map where the epicenter was. Now it just shows the map of my monitored location.
It would be nice if the app synced monitored locations and notification settings. As it exist now I have to set up each device individually. Fix these issues and I'll give 5 stars.
Radius resets to 1 mile 1/5
Please fix the bug that was recently introduced that resets the notification radius to 1 mile as soon as the app is closed. This is the best earthquake notification app and is currently broken. I use this app to inform me of recent events. Please look into the issue and restore the awesome notification feature. Otherwise great app.
The app crashes…can't find internet connection 1/5
The app will not allow me to update radius setting on alerts. It exits the program.
The app will not allow me to remove locations because it cannot detect an Internet connection. Same when attempting to add a location.
Locations incorrect. 1/5
My locations in the USA are pinpointed off the coast of Africa. They are listed correctly. 🙃
By Alaskan island
Will not bring up list or forward alerts to me. Tells me to check my internet connection when it's just fine. It was reliable but now I have to turn to another app.
It was my mistake, when I wanted to update this app. It takes me forever to see some information, and app is always crashing. Please, fix it.
Bad app 1/5
Crashes all the time. When I go in to review I notice my setting didn't stick and goes back to monitoring a 1 mile radius. I update again to expand the radius but it doesn't stick. Not sure what the issues are now since I didn't have these issues on my old phone.
Unable to add locations 1/5
By The Real Z
Can't add new locations. Existing locations changed to a 0 mile radius and crashes when I change it. It also will no longer track my location. The app is now useless.
Excellent for the price 4/5
By YW84HOTWATER REDYTEMPDOTCOM
App has never crashed on me. I wish it would allow for historical retention so that trends can be seen. San Andreas's fault line would be nice to track with this app. The wind, rain, etc are a nice touch by developer. Developer being Red Cross donators.
Radius resets to 1 Mile 1/5
Every time I leave the app, the radius resets to 1 mile.
Hate the new update it's useless!!! 1/5
By Another iPhone plus
A lot of good this update does when the radius keeps changing back to 1 mile!!! It does no me good!! Useless!!
iPhone 6+ 1/5
App changes the radius to zero and if you try to set it, it crashes.
