What's New in Version 5.32
- Fixed bugs.
Informative before it's news
This app is very fast at providing earthquake/tsunami data immediately following an event. I would give it a 5 star rating if it allowed two or more alert settings preferences. I want alerts for any earthquake size in my local area and also have alerts for larger significant earthquake only across the globe. This app only allows for one preference setting. Beyond that, this app is amazing and I was alerted to significant quakes quakes before they became news.
Not very time sensitive.
There was an earthquake measuring 7.2 ( pretty big) approximately 90 minutes ago in Mexico. The app showed no quakes in the last day. It was not until I hit "week" that the earthquake showed up on the map with the correct time of the event.
This means that the "day" and "hour" buttons do absolutely nothing.
So when opening this app, don't count on being able to see any quakes that just happened unless you would like to hunt for them. I was alerted about the quake by a news app.
This kind of defeats the point of this app.
BTW, I have the Tremor Tracker app, and it does not even show the quake at all.
Still buggy but works on iPad
It seems to work pretty good on iPad but there are still a few bugs. While the proximity for push notifications seems to work with earthquakes it seems to always push Tsunami warnings regardless. I've been waking up to push notification warnings not even in the country. Other than that the app has been working as expected so far.
