What's New in Version 2.0.8
# Improved support for iOS 9.
# Minor bug fixes.
Useful but really annoying
It is a very useful app that tells you about earthquakes, but it has a very annoying feature, it constantly pops up an alert if there are any quakes happening and won't let you view the list of quakes due to the alerts are displayed in both a "banner" style notification and an "alert" style notification ( which is impossible according to notification settings) making it so you are having to press the "ok" button a million times for each quake before you can view heist, and then assuming there are after shocks (which all quakes have) you will have to press he "ok" button again for each after shock registered. If there are no quakes for more than 10 then and only then will you be able to view the list.
The app does not have a way t change the alert messages and/or is ignoring the Notification Center preferences!!!
Please fix that
If it is fixed then I will give the app a 5 star rating
Fix notifications contents
Please: Omit the "New Earthquake" phrase from the body of text message. It is already shown in the header and it is redundant. Should say instead: City and Magn. #.## first, and then, the rest of the information. Putting magnitude at the end is useless, cannot be read in the main Apple iphone notifications center. Right now is really not apealing. Prefering other apps who share almost the same data, due for this single issue.
(Already notified. Expect to see some improvements, including this, in future versions)
The "New eartquake" in the first line of the notifications is redundant and useless. The notif header already has the name of the app. Prefer intensity and city first, and then the rest of details. Example: 5.3 Solomon Islands, etc, etc, etc.
New Favorite App
If you enjoy science, you will enjoy this app. Love the map feature! The map is great, but I wish the map would be able to encompass the entire layout at once on my ipad. A nice addition would be to have the ability to select an earthquake and have the option to be redirected to news stories pertaining to that specific quake.
