Over a year ago, we set out to develop the absolute best historical earthquake app available for the iPhone. Every other earthquake app showed only a few days of data with limited mapping or filtering options. We went to work....
That was over two years ago, and today, if you want to look at the initial Haiti earthquake event and subsequent aftershocks on an iPhone, Earthquake Alerts is absolutely your best answer. It's also the ONLY WAY TO SEE the initial M8.8 CHILE EARTHQUAKE and its HUNDREDS of subsequent aftershocks on an iPhone. The Japanese earthquakes that caused the March 11th tsunami that badly damaged the Fukushima nuclear plant are also available.
Earthquake Alerts has nearly a million earthquakes in its worldwide databases, updated every minute. More than 30 years of historical earthquake information is now searchable and available in the palm of your hand. Other earthquake apps show only 7 days of data... Why not see the whole picture?
See results in Map or List views. Filter results alphabetically, or by magnitude, proximity, or date and time. Save areas of interest for future reference. Search broadly by Region or specifically by City with more than 300,000 cities available.
