Amazing Data

Following Dutchsinse for years, I was always disappointed that I couldn’t follow along on my Mac. This is truly the next best thing. There’s a detailed tutorial which is a great help in the first setup and a great FAQ for new users. Most importantly, I can choose my data feed. I would highly recommend this app. It is worth every penny.


Ok... but laboristic

iOS version doesn’t give the option of multiple selections of eq feed from USGF and Europe or others and so you have to constantly click several times back and forth to compare what’s being posted by the feeds.

Not only is the IOS version a pain, the data isn't correct! I examine this material EVERY SINGLE DAY! What do I see? Nothing sometimes. The feed match what the EMCS site is reporting

I like the app but this is a problem for me trying to see what is going on and then all its bugs.

Another problem on iPhone it stays only on portrait mode where a tablet revolves the screen but still selecting sources could be fixed.

A bit of a waste of $7. I would rather spend a little more for that is equal to the desktop version which this is not.

I’m disappointed

The free app from EMSC is better but not as pretty 🧐

Developer Response

How many times are you going to revise this one star review? Troll? Data comes from official sources and is reported accurately. It is up to the user to control the settings -- or you will miss things. This is a universal app which runs on all devices and is limited to portrait view on iPhones due to the smaller screen size.

Disappointed with its limitations

Very limited compared to the Windows paid version. Infrequent updates, low-res maps even with a Retina display & only a few data feeds is very disappointing. Didn't expect it to have all of the Windows bells & whistles for $7, but it is closer in features to the free Windows version. Three stars only because it is still useful.
