Great app & Best Looking
I just moved to california, when it occured to me i had no idea what to do if an earthquake happened. This is the best resource i have found whether online or in the appstore. thank you guys very much for creating it. My only issue is that sometimes upon app launch the app tells me i have no internet connection, and i have to close the app entirely and relaunch. perhaps adding a second delay before checking internet connectivity would solve the issue?
Important app that crashes a lot
It's a five star app in terms of being an important app to have for those in an earthquake zone.
But for quality, I could only muster up 3 stars (and that's being generous). Just tried to use the app after a main shock last week and some continuing aftershocks through today and it frequently crashes just by launching it. Not cool.
Additionally, that whole bit in the description about being able to query and map 40 years of earthquake history is either really, really hard to find, or it's only available within a single question in the quiz. Weird.
Nice app learn a lot.
There's only one thing I wish you would add to this app. I know you have history. If there already is I can't find it but this app needs a button that says map. What it would do is open the world map and it would have dots showing all the earthquakes that's ever happened around the world. From their you could click it and possibly link it to a site or something where you can view pics and news story's from that area of the time it happened. You could do this for the tornado app and the others also.
