The idea was great...
Very glitchy and crashes often. Let's me add several locations then when I exit the app and come back I click on any of the locations and it doesn't fully load them...picture changes to generic clouds on all and mile radius is at 0 and when you click to change any of those settings, the app crashes. The only time I can change the radius is right after I create a new location. It won't remember radius setting I put in though if I leave the app. I decided to do a reinstall of the app and that only made it worse. Same issues plus now when trying to select "Current Location" it says "error bad request" like I said it was a great idea, but their app developer needs to give this project more attention.
Rated a 5 star from a 1 star on previously version. Can check USGS site from app and app no longer crashes. Has everything you need and works as advertised. Thank you for having this app a available.
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!
