Seismo is a little free application that allows you to get a list of earthquakes from around the world.

Seismo uses the data feed provided by United States Geological Survey (USGS) to display the details about all earthquakes from the list.

What's New

Version 1.61

A lot has changed since version 1.0, with quite a number of interim minor releases, each with a few small fixes, changes or enhancements - hence the increment in version number.

• NEW: Google Map support. Now the app can show all earthquakes on a map in a separate window
• NEW: Google Map support for individual earthquakes. Now, when opening Detailed Information window, you have the option to show the earthquake location on the map (this will open separate Map window, different than the Map of All Earthquakes)
• NEW: Copy and Paste support
• NEW: Added Location Search
• CHANGE: Seismo is now using a new API at USGS to get the list of earthquakes
• CHANGE: Double clicking on an earthquake in the main window now opens Detailed Information instead of Web Page Sheet with the USGS Website
• CHANGE: Web Links in About Panel are now clickable
• FIX: About Panel becomes active when open

Let’s talk science. Yes, great app and it shows you what happened, and I mean just now. We had a 5.4 nearby (200 miles) and bingo!, there it is! I felt it so by the time I opened my Mac it was posted. If you want music, try iTunes. If you want color and bling, go downtown on Black Friday. If you live on planet earth and want to have a good list of earthquakes, use Seisomo. It’s great! Thanks for the app.

You get what you pay for with this free app

It’s not worth the download. The screen shot is a bit misleading, suggesting there is some connection between the map image and text. There is no real interactivity or sense of immediacy with the app. It’s not an app; it’s actually just a table of recent seismological readings and events coupled with a link to a U.S. Geological Survey report of the quake. I didn’t have to pay for this “app," and yet I still feel duped.

Great app, data is true and useable.


Very easy and straightforward. Would like to see the world map a bit bigger and an option to switch between standard and metric values. Well done app.
