It's an interesting app that helps to keep me informed on what the earth is doing. I have noticed that I often do not get an earthquake notice for about 30 minutes after it has occurred so you certainly don't want to rely on this app to save your life or give you real-time forewarning. It is useful though, especially if you pay close attention- you can see how an earthquake in one region will stimulate an earthquake in an almost opposite region. In this way, it can help you predict what may happen next. Update: I liked the app much better before it was updated. Before, the map was a satellite image and I could zoom in and explore the topography of the ocean floor and such. Now it’s just a cartoon image. I still gets alerts but I use the app much less now because of the crumby map. And thanks for the adding the ads... I upped my rating back to 5 stars for the developers quick and helpful response and showing me how to get my satellite image back. Thx:)
I’ve been using this app for years. I live in Alaska. We get quakes. A LOT of them. And often. The most recent notable one was the 7.0 on November 30, 2018 (it was reported as a 7.0 but that is an average of all of the points. In the area where I live, the data read to 8.0 to 8.2). Since then, we have had hundreds of aftershocks, (I don’t know when they stop being called aftershocks and go back to being called tremors); but there are still a significant number of shakers daily. I have noticed that I don’t get the notification for a shaker that we just had, until 6 to 10 minutes after it happened. With the realization that knowing sooner isn’t going to change the fact that the shaker just happened, it still seems a little unreasonable for there to be that much of a time lapse to get the information. For tsunami warnings and any other emergency information, 6 to 10 minutes can be fatal.
Addicted to QUAKEFEED! Completely “OVER THE MOON” with the many features of this APP! QUAKEFEED has immediate USGS Govt EARTHQUAKE & TSUNAMI warnings, with “direct links to the USGS reporting site” for more information. Countries, Regions, & States are programmable to “a QUAKES intensity, multiple strengths/magnitudes”, with text Notifications if you want them. QUAKEFEED has a NEWS link for the latest information, good graphics & choice of map display, including the “Ring of Fire”. The QF APP is easy to read, program and understand. The Magnitude QUAKE levels, includes time, “distance from my location and depth of QUAKE”, city & state... Very Accurate! Notifications are AWESOME!... immediate EARTHQUAKE text alerts with sounds, including TSUNAMI, can save your life! Various EMERGENCY information available, including EMERGENCY SURVIVAL KITS that you can purchase. AD FREE version available. LOVE! ♥️
I live near Portland, OR, and am wary of the big 9+ event happening along the Cascadia Subduction zone, or even the 7+ event that could happen along Mt Hood. Granted no one knows if Cascadia will just break loose without warning but I’d like to think there will be lots of tremors before it goes. This app is great for seeing fault behavior on a day to day basis around the world, if you’re so inclined to observe in that way. I get alerts that I customized based on distance from you, region, and magnitude. A 3.0 earthquake happened in Sumatra? I don’t care. A 7.5 magnitude happens in the same place? I’d like to know. That said this app does not present real time data. It’s typically 15 minutes or so after the event. If I had a perceptible quake in my area, I’d feel it and then 15 minutes later the alert pops up. Oh gee, thanks. So it is not a usable warning technology. I’m sure that would depend on the use of better GPS sensors right on the faults themselves, which hopefully we’ll have in place one day.
I downloaded this app and configured my alerts only to receive an alert for Mexico not even five minutes later. I don't live near Mexico and it was not a part of my alert settings that I configured. When I went back in to change the notification settings I received multiple errors saying the app couldn't connect to the notification server. I tried multiple times and when I did finally get in there was a new notification configured that I didn't set up. When I tried to delete it it said the same thing about not being able to connect to the notification server. The ads were unexpected to just show up after I clicked on something and pretty annoying to have to wait five seconds to get to what I clicked on. One extra star because I could limit my notification to only the state I live in. But ultimately this app doesn't work. And maybe given more than 10 minutes this app would work, but I had it set up and something happened to make it not work.
