N.1 Earthquake app for iPhone and iPad, more than 1M users, supports Apple Watch
Get the latest worldwide data from several sources and receive push notifications alerts.
Main features:
• push notifications on your phone as soon as the event data is available from an official source (you can set alerts based on location and/or magnitude threshold). Push notifications allow the application to receive events even when unused, without this leading to an increased consumption of battery
• map with different sized and colored circles to represent event magnitude and age
• filter events by area (country, continent) or magnitude
• multiple sources, including: U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), GeoScience Australia, GNS Science (GeoNet), Instituto Geográfico Nacional, Servicio Sismológico Nacional, British Geological Survey, GFZ GEOFON, Natural Resources Canada , NOAA
• event timeline (today, yesterday, previous days)
• detail view for each event, reachable from map and timeline views
• Tsunami bulletins (NOAA data)
• Tectonic Plate Boundaries (USGS data)
• Population estimates for each event and Population Density layer (SEDAC/NASA data)
• search earthquakes catalog (all world regions covered, back to 2013)
• export data to Google Earth or other installed apps supporting kml file format
• social sharing: share event map and data to Facebook, Twitter, Email
• reverse geocoding: names of locations, when unavailable, are calculated automatically from their geographical coordinates
• Today Widget: the widget briefly shows some details of the biggest seismic event occurred in your country over the last 24 hours.
• multiple languages: the app is localized in English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Greek, Russian, Chinese, Dutch, Portuguese, Turkish, Hungarian and Romanian
• optimized for iPhone7, iPad and iOS10. 3D Touch support

VERY Disappointed

Pix 12

Don't believe I've ever rated an app, even the ones I really like, but today's the day: Downloaded the free version, only took me a few minutes to realize that the important settings can't be made unless you pay, i.e., Magnitude, how far from my location, can only chose ONE location, for instance my daughter lives in California, I don't but wanted to add hers along with where I live. Don't seem to be able to do that. *Which technically wouldn't need to if the area where one can usually specify how far from where they live, can be added, i.e., "Up to 800 miles from my location".

I'm amazed this app is being rated anywhere near as good as it has.

Used to track activity in Peru

I couldn’t get push notifications to work but the problem could be my mobile provider. Otherwise, this is the best app if you’re looking for accurate earthquake activity in your area in and around Peru. I have 4 different apps installed and this is the only one that aggregates everything properly.

I like it, though support is slow


I like this app. Satisfies my curiosity and does a good job of displaying information. At this point, I am glad I paid for the Pro features. It is only $2.

But, I was annoyed that the app’s apparent push to upgrade made it impossible to enjoy the app, or maybe that was a hiccup. After I upgraded, it kept insisting I should upgrade. Sending a message to support uncovered a problem with their web form. I have yet to receive a reply.

I finally resolved my own issues with this app after updating iOS 11.

If not for the hassles, and lack of support response, I’d give this 4 stars. (I am pretty stingy on star ratings. Five stars needs to be simply top notch, without any major and few if any minor issues.)
