iSeismometer for Mac serves as the perfect companion to the iSeismometer iOS app, enhancing educational experiences by providing a comprehensive platform to view and analyze seismic data. Designed for educators, students, and earthquake enthusiasts, this app enriches learning about seismic activities with detailed, accessible visualizations.

Key Features:

- iOS Integration: Connect seamlessly with your iPhone or iPad via Bonjour networking. This feature allows you to visualize accelerometer data from iOS devices in real-time, directly on your Mac, enriching classroom demonstrations and personal studies.
- Live Earthquake Updates: Keep up-to-date with recent seismic activities through a live feed of USGS data. Each earthquake is presented on an interactive map, providing key details such as magnitude, location, and time, which are crucial for educational analysis.
- Interactive Maps: Engage with an intuitive mapping interface to explore global seismic events. This feature is ideal for teaching geographical impact analysis and understanding the distribution of earthquakes worldwide.

iSeismometer for Mac is designed to complement the mobile experience, providing a broader, more detailed view of data collected on your iOS devices. It's an invaluable tool for anyone seeking to enhance their knowledge and educational outreach in the field of seismology.

Time to update

Can we get an update? Unable to open app, as it’s not compatible with iOS 11. I don’t want to delete it on the remote possibility that there may be an update. Not able to find anything comparable as of yet.

iOS 11 update ASAP!

iOS 11 update ASAP!

This is a nice app but what it really needs is the ability to utilize the iPhone accelerometer to detect earthquakes and automatically share that data to the cloud and/or the USGS.

Only when enough similar readings are detected from a certain region within a narrow timeframe would the data be considered legitimate and then be pushed back out to the map for all users to view.

The app could also be active only at certain times of the day/night that the user defines. As well as only be active when connected to pre-defined wifi networks. Such as Home or work.

Another option would be to only take accelerometer reading when it is plugged into power (such as when on your night stand or connected to a computer USB).

The app could also use the iPhone GPS to disable sensor reading when moving. As well as only record seismic data when the app detects the iPhone is laying flat on its back.

Another option would be to disable the seismic sensor data output when a face is detected with the front facing camera.

Requiring the app to be running in the foreground would also further prevent false readings.

This could easily, quickly, and cheaply create a huge network of seismographs around the world.

Needs to be able to run in background (Multitasking).

Needs to record magnetometer data as well.

Great but needs some work...

The application is excellent and is one of the few great apps that allow you to export information over UDP with low-pass filtering. However it has two fatal flaws. The first being that it crashes back to the main screen after running for about 24 hours. I’m writing an earthquake monitoring app for various locations in my house and having to check each iPhone/iPod around the house to make sure they’re still running is a pain. Secondly the app needs to be updated for the iPhone 5 screen size and resolutions. Otherwise I’d give it 5 stars.
