CONGRATULATIONS! You have found the best volcano app in the world! 300,000 users cannot be wrong!

Why our app?
Very simple - our app offers the most comprehensive set of features related to volcanic activity around the world.

What our app does?
Simple answer - almost everything to do with volcanoes. And we continue to improve it, so one day it will do everything.

# Interesting fact: every two minutes our server sends volcanic activity notifications based on VAAC (Volcanic Ash Advisory Centres) reports to many thousands of our users. On average we send about 300,000 alerts per day!

We are always happy to hear from our users. If you have a great idea or would like to provide some feedback, please use "Stay In Touch" screen to contact us.

In more details, our app:
# Shows about 2000 well-known volcanoes on a map and provides additional information for most of them.

# Optionally presents 100+ volcanic webcams on the map.

# Notifies of ash clouds and displays the clouds and the forecasts on the map.

# Provides VAAC reports and aviation codes for the volcanic activity.

# Displays 7 days of seismic activity (M4+) around the globe.

# Shows weekly volcanic activity as published by Smithsonian Institution.

# Displays tectonic plates' boundaries on the map.

# Displays large airports on the map and provides basic information about them.

# Allows to customise volcanic alerts to get notifications for one volcano, for a region or for a whole country.

# Shows local earthquakes (M1+) for the areas of interest.

# Draws range rings on the map to simplify distance measurement.

# The app displays basic volcanic activity info on Today Widget and on Apple Watch.

Please note: We have to charge for some of the app's advanced features to pay for the app's development and the server hosting.

What are the benefits?
# You can see a lot of volcano related information on a map.

# You can easily find well-known volcanoes and learn more about them.

# You can monitor seismic activity around the globe or in the vicinity of the volcanoes.

# You can get notified of all the volcanic activity in the world or in a region of your interest.

# You can monitor ash clouds and aviation code changes.

# If you are a pilot or a volcano climber, you can plan your trip using range rings.

# You can monitor volcanic activity around large airports.

# You can use your Apple Watch to keep track of volcanic activity.

Simply said - there is nothing like our app.

Not a Pro-App, BUT still wonderfully useful.

In the few years I have had this application, I’ve found it quite useful in aiding my research and fueling my passion for volcanology and seismology. While it is certainly not an in-depth application for those looking for every piece of news or detailed reports on volcanoes or earthquakes, it is quite handy for basic overviews on important geologic events around the globe, and it keeps the user updated on when and where said event is occurring.
I find that occasionally certain events that may have just occurred will not receive updates until days later, and it may leave the user without an alert about the given event until then. While this is not ideal, I understand that this application is intended for basic overviews, and I don’t hold that fact against it.
Overall I am quite pleased with the years of service this application has brought me, and I look forward to many more!

A Fun, and Different App

About six months ago I bought a few apps which track earthquakes, hurricanes, and cyclones around the planet. I always had a hidden interest about volcanos. I live in a State of the US, where over 3/4 the real estate was formed by ancient volcanos. This is the State of New Mexico, so one day I checked with the App Store. I wondered if there was an app keeping up with all the volcanos on earth. This app does exactly that quite nicely. The app works with Maps, showing exactly where all the volcanos are located. There's both satellite imagery, as well as photos taken from planes, and ground. As much as can be possible, there's information provided for every volcano across the globe. There's current activity, as well as ash reports as they come in all over the earth. I have fun learning about all the volcanos, and terminology. I highly recommend this app, they give you a lot for just a few dollars.

Volcano app

A great app, especially for free. I only gave it 3 stars because the activity info isn't as current as it should be.

Living only miles from the San Andreas fault line which travels into the Sea of Cortez up to and San Francisco, means to me information, although most times in the past tense, it could mean even more of things to come. The Quake app is essential if you take what we’re being shown as important as it is.
My only complaint is not being able to show a history of volcanic and earthquake activity along a specific stretch of fault lines. That being said I’ve been a little too critical of your app until I understood what it takes just to keep such important app accurate and dependable. So great job, and maybe add another even far more tie in of the two things of this two are so closely related. ✝️ ΙΧΘΥΣ <^><
