Earthquakes! - Earthquake Map and Alerts
By Earthquake Map and Alerts
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Earthquake Map and Alerts will let you know when the next tremor hits! Set alerts for your area based on distance and strength to receive notifications on your phone. You can also view earthquakes that have already occurred in a list view, organized by magnitude. With map view, you can find quakes closest to you and see details such as distance from you, start time and magnitude.

- Performance improvements
- Various bug fixes
I have it set to show me earthquakes no further than 100 miles from me that are at least 3.0. I still get alerts for Mexico. Sometimes, like tonight, I got an alert for a quake in Central California (which I'm pretty sure will be farther than 100 miles from me,) and when I opened the app, the quake isn't showing in the list of recent quakes or in the alerts and I can't find it on the map, either. Also, this app will send multiple "alerts" for the same event, which is annoying. If I ignored the first alert, what makes the developer think that repeating that alert 2 minutes later is going to make me anymore likely to check it?
I'm pretty close to erasing this app. If I find something better, I'll be nixing this one for it. This one is just plain shoddy!
It's a pretty good app. My family and I use it often. It's educational. It gives the LAT/LONG of all earthquakes worldwide, distance from your current location and size and depth. The earthquakes are color coded based upon recency. Five stars however we'd like to see earthquakes sooner. Often times earthquakes are not reported on this app until 15-30 minutes later. We understand this takes time. Awesome app though.
Best Earth Quake App I Know
This app is awesome as it operates in real time. When a quake strikes it alerts my phone. Sends information allowing me to see where the quake was centered and provides surrounding zip codes as well.
Also allows you to set the magnitude that you would like to be alerted about. Mine is set to 3.0 and above. App works great and thus I give it 5 stars.
