DescriptionWhat people have been saying about QuakeInfo:
"Excellent software. I live in Santiago de Chile and I had all the information about [the 2010 Chilean] earthquake a few minutes after the quake. Radios were not working so I could tell my family and neighbors about what had happened."
M. from Santiago de Chile

Bill from Portland, Oregon
"...this is almost a must have application..."

Using data from the U.S. Geological Survey, QuakeInfo™ displays earthquakes of magnitude 2.5 or greater occurring anywhere in the world during the past week.
QuakeInfo™ has two main views: a Quake List and a Quake Map. Earthquakes in the Quake list can be sorted by date and time, magnitude or the distance from your current location or any other location on Earth which you choose (even the epicenter of any earthquake). You can also choose to always see strong earthquakes (magnitude 6.0 or greater) on this view no matter where they occur.
On the Quake map, you can review the past week's earthquakes on a world map. Look for patterns, and see how earthquakes reveal the presence of faults in the earth's crust.
You can even share earthquake information and a link to the USGS Earthquake Report via email, SMS, Facebook or Twitter directly from the app.
You can also sign up for push notifications to be informed automatically about strong earthquakes and earthquakes near your reference location. You can also take a quick glance at what's going on with the Today Widget in iOS 8.
QuakeInfo™ also includes support for Apple Watch, so you can view the day's earthquakes right from your wrist.
Explore the changing face of our planet by discovering earthquakes in your neighborhood and around the world, all from the palm of your hand!
Note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
What's New in Version 2.1.9Now that we've spent some time using the Apple Watch, QuakeInfo is back with a brand new Apple Watch experience:
• The QuakeInfo app now shows you detailed information about the most-recent strong, most-recent nearby or most-recent earthquake
• The brand-new QuakeInfo Glance provides a brief overview of the most-recent strong, most-recent nearby or most-recent earthquake, and can be viewed by simply swiping up on your Apple Watch from the watch face. Tap the glance to open up the QuakeInfo Apple Watch app to explore the earthquake in more detail.
• A new notification screen with more details about strong and nearby earthquakes, including a world map centered on the epicenter
We’d love to hear from you! Please send us feedback from the settings screen in the app and let us know what you think of the app as well as the Apple Watch experience.
