  • Slow

    By Burpbirl
    Looking for a new Earthquake AP. This one is very slow in reporting/updating the information .
  • Best of the Lot!

    Because this app pulls from numerous sources and not JUST USGS-who have a reputation for under-reporting or even NOT reporting quakes which may affect their corporate sponsors-after trying NUMEROUS quake apps, I ALWAYS return to this one. My only problem has been notifications. But, now I have an app that ONLY gives push notifications, (not much detail), and I can just open THIS app for all my detail! Have also recommended to fellow Dutch-watchers. While I personally have only experienced a few quakes personally and live in a rather low risk zone; after the Aug ‘11 quake knocked my building off its foundation here in Pa; and I have friends & family in high-risk zones, I prefer to keep INFORMED & PREPARED!

    This app is great, but I remember when I first downloaded this app, a few months back, I was able to zoom into an area, much closer than I can now.. what happened to the pixels? It’s not as clear anymore.. I liked it before when I could see exactly what the terrain looks like, where the quake hit. I would really appreciate if you could fix that issue! Thanks!!
  • Fabulous App

    By Va flowers
    This should be on everyone’s phone or tablet right beside their favorite weather app! I have been using this app for years, and it just keeps getting better. There is so much to learn from QuakeWatch. Real-time information always fascinates me. I highly recommend this excellent app.
  • Reliable and Easy

    I have used this app for years and it is very reliable and easy to use. I’m from Southern California and my family lives in Northern California. As soon as I feel movement I start checking the app to see where and how big it was. Love it.

    By Midlyfn
    I've been using this app a couple of years. It is very scientific and super interesting. I'm not in an earthquake zone but if I was on the west coast this would be an app I would use everyday. The interface could not be better. The developers hit a homerun! Great work Quakewatch!
