Ratings and Reviews
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.
Best Volcano App
This App is better than the others available right now in pretty much every area. I like the fact that it also shows quakes. If you click on any volcano it gives you a pop-up summary of quick information on it along with an “information” widget, which you can click on to be taken to a page where you can read more in-depth information about each volcano. The developers did a nice job of arranging the layout and information in this app so that it’s very easy to use. I would definitely recommend it to anyone on the fence about giving it a try!
An Aviation Must Have
If you live near a volcano or operate aircraft near them, you need this App and the modest purchase cost for Ash Alerts.
This morning, Mt Sinabung (Sumatra) ejected sufficient ash to trigger a “Red” alert, potentially a hazard to aviators and our aircraft. The warning popped with 2 min of Darwin’s posting time. If your flight has WiFi onboard, you could know long before others might be able to do so.
