The best iPad apps for earthquake alerts

The app is available for free on the App Store. It is a useful tool for students, geo-hobbyists, researchers, and emergency personnel. It automatically fetches data from major seismological centers so it needs a stable internet connection.

When you load the app, it immediately displays the earthquake timeline showing the day’s events. It gives a list of earthquake events with magnitude reading, locations, and time.

You need to note that hundreds of earthquakes are happening every hour around the world. So you wouldn’t want this app to give you incessant alerts every minute. You can fix this by customizing the alerts from the settings screen. From there, you can create custom filters for locations and magnitude threshold. You can even disable the notification feature and simply load the app when you are connected to the Internet.

To get a detailed view of an earthquake event, just tap a location from the timeline to open the earthquake reading page. You will then see in-depth data including magnitude, depth, coordinates, and time. It also displays the location of the epicenter on a map and a graphical view of seismic points across different cities from the same region.
