Browse earthquakes in the past 24 hours or past 30 days in map mode or data feed mode. Use the slider to quickly filter earthquakes by magnitude.

Set a custom location in feed mode to find the closest recent earthquakes to that location and to populate distances for all earthquakes relative to the custom location.

Tap on an earthquake to show more details including depth and "Felt By" numbers.

Drilling into a specific earthquake also reveals options to:

1. jump to the USGS event webpage
2. plot cities near the epicenter with their populations

A Recent Earthquake News section: find news from 1,600+ cited sources quickly on a map or in a table view tagged by state alphabetically. Set up your own custom state feed with the state toggles.

Please read the App Help File for more specific usage information.

All data is from the USGS (United States Geological Survey).

Very nice free earthquake app

With the Earthquake Monitor app I can set it to notify me if an earthquake occurred within a selectable distance around me as well as being able to set the magnitude level of the earthquake. Initially I set it to all earthquakes of magnitude 1 or greater to verify that the notifications were working. I got a notification in less than 30 minutes. The notification came with a distinctive audio alert so as to easily discern that it was an earthquake notification. Also there is a tsunami alert capability such that if an earthquake is judged to be capable of creating a tsunami then I would get notified of those regardless of the range or magnitude setting.

The app also has a list capability showing all earthquakes occurrences in the last 24 hours. There is a unique slider at the top of the list such that I can quickly filter the list to earthquakes of a certain magnitude or greater. This is the only app I have seen that lets me quickly filter the earthquake list to precise magnitude level. Other apps I've seen are more general, e.g. any quake greater than magnitude 5.
Earthquake time listings are automatically adjusted for my local time zone. Most apps I've seen display the earthquake occurence in GMT time.

Also, earthquakes can be displayed as distance and bearing from my location. So I can easily sort the list by distance so that I can see earthquakes that are close to me.

In summary Earthquake Monitor is a very nice and free earthquake app.
