Great App But not enough granularity
The one thing I don’t like about this app and this is the reason why I’m uninstalling is that you cannot select the magnitude of the earthquake to be notified. This app goes off every 20 minutes alerting me of earthquakes with a magnitude of un 1. I don’t care to receive those notifications. I’d like to program the app to alert me for example anything over a magnitude 4. If there is such a setting I could not find it. Other than this, really like the app. Thanks
Has what you need.
Has all the info you could need. Also has volunteer info too. Great app.
For what it is; thumbs up
Nothing is perfect, but I would say it gave me a good idea as to how to approach earthquakes and gave me the mindset in order to be more prepared. This app shouldn’t be a primary source, but if you are interested in earthquake preparation one source probably wouldn’t cut it anyway. So + on the basics of earthquake prep + on the tools and ideas to use on my own The earthquake warning part can be more streamlined, but all things considered this is 1. A free app. Not payment required 2. The Red Cross focuses on many projects like blood donation; not a lot money to be made here. 3. Gets you thinking about dangers that can avoided. 4. It’s free!
