Earthquakes can be viewed either on a shaded relief map, or a map of the ocean floor, and plate lines can be displayed as a map overlay.

I am fortunate enough not to live near any major fault lines; however, I can imagine this app being incredibly useful to have on hand. The push notifications are particularly useful and can be customized by using an in-app purchase.
