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.
Lacking the last few months
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.
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 a ways 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!
