#1 Earthquake app for iPhone and iPad, more than 3M downloads, supports Apple Watch.
Get the latest worldwide data from several sources and receive push notifications alerts.
• rich push notifications on your phone as soon as the event data is available from an official source (you can set up to 4 alerts based on location and/or magnitude threshold)
• map with different sized and colored circles to represent event magnitude and age
• filter events by area (country, continent) or magnitude
• multiple sources, including U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), GeoScience Australia, GNS Science (GeoNet), Instituto Geográfico Nacional, Servicio Sismológico Nacional, British Geological Survey, GFZ GEOFON, Natural Resources Canada, NOAA
• event timeline (today, yesterday, previous days)
• earthquakes catalog (all world regions covered, back to 2013), search by date, territory, city or reporting agency
• detail view for each event, reachable from map and timeline views
• Tsunami bulletins (NOAA data)
• Tectonic Plate Boundaries (USGS data)
• Population estimates for each event and Population Density layer (SEDAC/NASA data)
• export data to Google Earth or other installed apps supporting kml file format
• social sharing: share event map and data to Facebook, Twitter, Email
• reverse geocoding: names of locations, when unavailable, are calculated automatically from their geographical coordinates
• Today Widget: the widget briefly shows some details of the biggest seismic event that occurred in your country over the last 24 hours.

Ratings and Reviews
The push alert should be free for all
I appreciate the free version of the USGS phone app. However, the push notification for for earthquakes et al should be free as well (not just the pro version). In fact making it free, I contend, would be the ethical thing to do; public safety is important for all of us. I am a disabled and therefore retiring professor in a small northern CA town. For me, even $2.99 is too much and I know I’m not the only one experiencing financial hardship in this area for one reason or another; there are many of us. Please consider making the push notifications free as well. Again, I really appreciate the free version of the app, u do have; I ask, and would appreciate it if the push notification could be free as well. Thank u for reading and considering this.
This app has potential. Great locating, easy to view when map options are low, tectonic fault only that do define strike/slip or subduction and appears up to date w/i few minutes. Challenges: map a bit too generic needs terrain relief(not aerial) standard illustration like on old maps. The earthquake points could be exaggerated a bit more as to size of quake. Color scheme is lost when adding population density which should be a blue scheme or grey scheme not the same as quakes. All faults, volcanos and hot springs should be noted in map too. Lastly a history button for locations pulled up that either integrates with a site like USGS or even just to a search engine and allow you to chose. This is the free version and I didn’t see any of this advertised for premium so until I see ideas such as these or better I won’t go premium. Cheers

Yes, that is by design: we list only the most recent events but you can go back until 2013 and list any date you want.
Can’t believe someone would rate any app low when it was free and the “good stuff” is in the paid version. They are all like that unless you get one with “in app” purchases which I hate. I’d rather pay an update fee of $.25 every year considering the work that goes into the app. I only have one complaint...they get earthquake info (it appears to me) from different sources so often it appears like there are two quakes but there is one...unless I’m missing something. Sometimes the notification appears to be in Chinese sometimes in English. Otherwise, this works great on my Watch!! Thanks!
ETA: This works better and faster than the quake notification system recommended for the California residents.
