Earthquake Network is the most comprehensive app on earthquakes and for most world countries it is the only earthquake early warning system for receiving real time alerts.
Earthquake Network gives you:
- Real time alerts if you live close to the epicentre
- Alerts seconds in advances if you live far from the epicentre
- Real time user reports on felt earthquakes
- Earthquake data from official seismic networks, 2 international and 16 national (U.S., Japan, Mexico, Chile, Spain, Peru, Ecuador, Argentina, Venezuela, Dominican Republic, Colombia, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, China and New Zeland)
The Earthquake Network research project (http://www.earthquakenetwork.it) aims at developing a smartphone-based earthquake early warning system able to detect earthquakes in real time and to alert the population in advance. Smartphones are able to detect earthquakes thanks to the accelerometer on-board each device. When an earthquake is detected, users with the application installed are immediatly alerted. Since earthquake waves travel at around 5 km/s it is possible to alert the population not yet reached by the damaging waves of the earthquake. For the scientific details about the project please refer to the Bulletin of the Seismological Society of America journal at http://goo.gl/lFBLYm
When an earthquake is detected in real time by smartphones near the epicenter, the server sends an alert to all users with the app. Alerting all users can take up to 10 seconds since it is not technically feasible to do so instantly. Now you can join the priority lists of the first 10,000 or 100,000 people alerted in real time. The following subscriptions are available:

Ratings and Reviews
Real Time works
Love it. It reports as it happened.
List of countries incomplete
I just downloaded this due to the earthquakes occurring in Southern California, so I don’t know how well it works. However, the list of countries the user can chose to view is lacking the United States and many other countries. I know the developer is in Italy, but I doubt it’s difficult to fill out this list.
This app is very useful
