Database of volcanoes upgraded
Fastest quake alerts and near-real time infos
Volcanoes & Earthquakes shows the latest earthquakes and active volcanoes on a map and as list.
You can filter the data shown in various ways, e.g. by magnitude or age of earthquakes, the distance from your location, the status of volcanoes and so on.
The original earthquake / volcano data can be found with more detail on www.volcanodiscovery.com. Earthquake data are continuously being collected and updated from multiple sources.

Ratings and Reviews
Great app for anyone interested in volcanoes
The live updates from this app are great and they sometimes give a more in depth explanation of an eruption whenever the data permits it. However, the app performance itself is a bit buggy at times. It lags a lot if you use the map feature for too long. Live updates sometimes don’t show up, forcing a deletion and re-download in order to get it working again. I’ve also noticed that there are no live updates being given on the currently erupting volcano in Iceland. You have to go to the main website itself for that. Hopefully an app update is sent out soon to fix all these issues, and this app will be even better.
I follow both EQ’s and Volcanoes for almost 15 years now and this app is by far my favorite for many reasons: it allows you to see volcanoes nears EQ’s - has a brief description of the current eruption/info and extensive info within a click or two- I get more, better described, current info here than with my other apps combined! Its also ahead of my other EQ apps as far as reporting/notification of EQ’s etc and shows quakes that my other apps don’t!
Volcanos and earthquakes
Having followed these events for the last ten years using USGS information I find this application to be very useful in getting news of events quickly. When the first worries about Yellowstone became alarming to people the USGS and universities shut down information from the live instruments. I will be interested in seeing if this app can provide all information.
