★★★★★ Description ★★★★
This is a simple app designed to help get you trough various types of catastrophes that may emerge. We've put a great effort into finding and providing you with the latest local reports and building up a exhaustive and comprehensive information list on what to do in the time of various catastrophes. Reports are aimed to be based on your current location but can also be read on global level.
★★★★★ Features ★★★★
First of all, this app features massive set of information on what to do before, during and after a disaster that should fully prepare you. To make these "what to do" lists more comprehensive, we divided them into checklists you can read trough and mark checked when completed. And there is also a set of basic information about catastrophes themselves you'd probably want to know about. Here's a short list of features:
☆ Local and worldwide reports
☆ Information that can save your life
★★★★★ Reports ★★★★★
The part of the app you will probably use the most is the reports section where you get fresh data about what's going on in your given radius or worldwide. You can tap on any report to get a full web report you can read or share.
☆ Reports from various reliable services
☆ Reports displayed on map
☆ Reports filtered by distance from you
★★★★★ Catastrophe Info ★★★★★
We currently got covered 7 types of disasters, including these:
☆ Earthquake (local reports)
☆ Flood (local reports)
☆ Hurricane (local reports)
☆ Nuclear Disaster (worldwide reports)
☆ Terrorism (*) (worldwide reports)
☆☆ Biological Threats
☆☆ Chemical Threats
☆☆ Nuclear Blast
☆☆ Radiological Dispersion Device
☆ Tornado (us reports)
☆ Tsunami (local reports)
☆ Volcano (local reports)
☆ Wildfire (local reports)
* - Although you may think terrorism isn't supposed to be put beside to natural disasters like earthquakes and flood, this is considered a serious threat, especially in urban areas. A very few people are well informed and know what to do in the case of terrorism threats like bombs or radiological dispersion devices.
★★★★★ Scalability ★★★★★
☆ "Near Me" radius for reports
☆ Units for radius
☆ Alert badges

- Wildfire and Tornado topics are introduced
- hurricane alerts stacking fix
- crashing on launch on iOS5 fix
- settings for alert badges are now adjustable by topic
- data is refreshed when "Near Me" distance is changed
- icon redesign
most useful app ever!
I like the idea of this app very much! It can be life-saving for people who live in unsafe areas. The app is easy to understand and get used to and I would recommend everyone get one on their phones.
Awesome & comprehensive !
Very nicely done, comprehensive, concise. Thanks for collecting info from various national/govt sites and presenting it in a single app !
Works well, listed accurate earthquakes for past hour & day here in san francisco bay area ! I'm using iPhone 4s with iOS 5.0 FYI.
One of a must have app for travel !
One quick suggestion - make the results list clickable - like touching an earthquake result open up the maps or just show more detailed info.
Felt compelled enough to write a review & thanks for offering it for free!
This app has helped me sooo many times. Thanks for such a wonderful guide app. Much better than any other one.
