QUAKE ALERTS | Get Earthquake Alerts and Tsunami Warnings to your iOS device. Our system monitors earthquake activity worldwide and plays a siren sound when you need it.

#1 Earthquake app for iPhone and iPad.

This app is brought to you by SMS Tsunami Warning, the award-winning earthquake monitoring app since 2011.

The app turns your phone into an alert system for earthquakes and tsunamis. It monitors seismic activity worldwide 24/7 and it delivers an alert to your iOS device if conditions are met (magnitude, user’s distance from quake, etc.). Alerts are delivered as push notifications with a loud siren sound.


- Live earthquake map
- Beautiful simple design, easy to use
- No ads
- Data feeds from various sources
- Metrical / Imperial measurement systems
- earthquake alerts / tsunami alerts
- Loud siren sound
- Quake data (location, magnitude, depth, distance, population density nearby, etc.)
- Great educational tool
- Support for the latest iPhone and iPad models.

The user interface is simple and easy to use. For a better reading, the map only shows "significant" earthquakes (with magnitude equal to or bigger than 4.5 on the Richter scale) detected globally in the last 24 hours. In the Settings screen, you can set your parameters for receiving the alerts (ie. user’s distance from the quake’s epicenter and magnitude). After the parameters are set, you can enable (or disable) the alarm system in one touch for total peace of mind. The app supports both metric and imperial measurement systems (Kilometers / Miles) to assess distances.

Each quake is represented by a marker on the map. Tap on the marker to open the details panel and dig more into the quake's data (depth, population estimates, etc.). The app is directly connected to our web platform, where you can learn more about a specific seismic event or, in general, get access to a vast literature concerning earthquakes and tsunamis (fault lines, features, history, etc.).

The app is a great educational tool and it offers a vital alert service, especially to those living by the coastline or in seismic regions.

The app is free and it contains NO ads. Push alerts are offered as in-app purchase for tiny $2.99 yearly fee (it may change slightly based on your country).

Important living in Hawaii

This app might give the people in Hawaii, other Pacific islands, and the pacific rim a heads up before the Pacific Tsunami center declares a Tsunami emergency. It’s not the most graphically beautiful app, but it gives you the all needed information and alerts within a few minutes of a seismic event. An update with better graphics is needed, but for less than the price of a cup of coffee for a year service… a bargain.

It works

You get a buzz and a message on your phone when an earthquake occurs within the range you defined. The alerts come from seismic stations around the world, but it’s not instant, there may be a time lag of several minutes. So if a huge quake happens near you, you probably know about it already by the time the alarm sounds.
I live on a tsunami prone coast, and find this app useful. The shake may have arrived already, but the app can tell you quickly if the epicenter is inland or offshore. If it’s offshore, it gives you a couple of minutes to get prepared.

Intuitive, informative, and easy to use!

This quake alert app is easy to set up and use. For only 2.99 a year, I’ve got access to knowing when and where a quake has stuck. With relatives in areas like japan, it really gives me peace of mind knowing that if something happens, I’ll be able to find out real quick. You’re able to choose between using miles or kilometers in the settings, and the map looks really clean and uncluttered!
