Description of Volcanoes & Earthquakes

Volcanoes & Earthquakes shows the latest earthquakes worldwide or only quakes near you, as well as earthquake "I-felt-it" reports for earthquakes, in near real-time. It also shows active volcanoes on a map and as a list, along with volcano news from all the world.

You can filter and display the data in various ways, for example by magnitude or age of earthquakes, distance from your location, volcano status and much more.

This very informative APP is in my opinion, Flawless!! I am a 64yr old disabled veteran with alot of time on my hands so although my physical state has several issues I can still Exercise my so-called mind 😵😂!! Every day I monitor and check All earthquakes (usually 3.5 or higher mag.) and volcano activity (as best as I can) that I\'ve requested notifications on thru your very Informative and Educational APP!! I love the study of Geology and your APP is the perfect tool for me!!

Have used this app for a couple of years and have always found it fast and accurate. Improves all the time. However, I can\'t discover how to list quakes in magnitude order.
Verte-Arbusto\'s Schumann-Resonance-Harmonics 2016-12-22

Very selective. No earthquakes or volcanos in the continental US are shown. This is a big problem, mainly if one lives near a volcano. The FAQs state ouright that there are no active volcanos in the continental US. This is NOT TRUE. According to the USGS data (on their website), there are a number of volcanos in the US now currently active, yet not shown on this app. Mt. Saint Helens, Mt. Rainier, Mt. Hood, Yosemite caldera, Mommouth Mountain, among others, are active in outgassing, as well as >3.0 Magnitude quakes.

app very weak, was not accurate 4 hours after an earth quake hit in my area and still no info on it, do not waste ur time with this app
David C. Weiser 2019-04-08

Volcanoes & Earthquakes is the perfect well thought-out and implemented app, with everything I need. Even in the free version, set your own thresholds, get lists of all quakes, those near you, and near volcanos. Also, different types of maps, news, sorting capabilities, and a large frequently updated DB. More, with no advertising, in the pro version. Great gustomer service — I suggested an addition; the creator got back to me, quickly, saying it would be in a subsequent update.
David Clay 2020-08-05

Highly recommend! Free version very accurate with timely alerts. I like the feature that allows user to adjust to show the depth of the quake. The world map, though not as clear as desktop global maps, allows you to zoom in close enough to make out major details.
Sharon Roberts 2020-01-05

This is a really good excellent app. It keeps you informed on all the earthquakes and volcanoes erupting all around the world. You also have the option to get alerts on earthquakes as they happen go to the settings on the app and set it up. I\'ve had this app for quite some time and I highly recommend it.

This app could save lives. It also can help people find world info about family\'s stuck in epicentre areas. Great for visual tectonic movement, volcano ash advice when flying and up-to-date data with push notifications. Nice feature to add your own \"felt it reports\".
Steeveni Osborne 2018-11-26

I am lost of words but infact so surprised to find this app really up to date. In the last 2 hours we had 4 earthquakes in Iraq and the locations pop up was updated in minutes. Great job on the app...... hats off to you and for those who don\'t have this app, I don\'t know what you guys are still waiting for. Just try it out.
Stuart Armstrong 2020-04-03

Really like this app. It thinks the way I do. Especially like the earthquake historical archive. And the ability to set up alternate locations. For example, I\'m interested in the New Madrid fault zone but I don\'t live anywhere near it. I can set it up to monitor my own location AND the New Madrid zone. I\'ve used several other apps and they all frustrate me, but this one is easy to customize, friendly, and very flexible. Ads are not intrusive but the Ad free version upgrade is well worth it.
