What's New in Version 2.0.6
# Renamed app to Earthquake+.
# Minor bug fixes.
If you like our app, please take the time to give us a nice review: it really helps.
My kids live in Hawaii which really isn't more than a few big rocks in the ocean. I can see if there are any major earthquakes that have potential for tsunami. I don't like the warning systems over (at least on the Big Island) the sirens only blare when the tsunami is a warning and not a watch. The Hilo side has many people that do not always have the ability to jump up and get to higher ground. Generally when the sirens go off, the panic begins. Stores and gas stations are packed and traffic is heavy to get to higher ground. Most people do not understand that the Indonesia tsunami went 20-30 miles inland. There needs to be much more public education on what to do. When I see a quake that is big enough to cause a wave then I let family and friends know and keep them informed throughout the day.
Still has problems
This app is fraught with bugs starting with the "free" upgrade. I could find no way to do the upgrade, so emailed the developer and they DID answer. But the screenshot sent does not look like anything I have.. Additionally if I try to BUY an upgrade, it asks me if I want to buy the entire package? I say NO, and nothing happens after that. It appears I can't spend money even if I want to.
Going back to the App Store, iTunes has no idea that OzQuake doesn't even know it's already installed and wants to do it again, but even with a fresh load you can not upgrade anything. There is allot of possibilities with this app but it's still broke and needs allot of background work.
2:00 am San Francisco, the chandelier rocks, I leap out of bed
And run for my kids room, under cover..
A couple minutes later my ipad lights up and I get a push notification of the exact details of the quake. I can easily scan for aftershocks. I either go to bed feeling a bit more calm or I wait for more if the earthquake was a bit long and dicey. It's one of those great apps that when you need it, it provides a ton of value.
