    extremely helpful app

    very happy I got this app. I live in an earthquake prone zone, and this App has given me a lot of accurate information about earthquakes, esp in my area. It’s very helpful in trying to plan for the next big one, which we are assured will come. I lived through the 1990s huge earthquake in Los Angeles, and I certainly don’t want to be as unplanned as we were in those days. I would recommend this earthquake app to everyone.

    Best earthquake app

    LastQuake is the best of several apps I’ve tried to get good, up-to-date info on earthquakes. I live in California, so this is important to me. You can customize it to only notify you of quakes above a certain strength. During July 2019, when there was a series of earthquakes in southern Calif, it was the first app to notify me and provided good maps and even reports from users in SoCal who experienced shaking.

    Superb app. Graphical imtpvement needed

    Font size of the text (at the right of Magnitude) giving details like how many minutes before the quake happened need to be a little bigger, because while color characters on a non-dark background are less readable than dark color characters on white background.
