Fantastic app
With relatives in Japan and living near several faults in SF Bay Area myself, this app is an essential. Sometimes scary until the relatives are reached, but comforting to see that the intensity and frequency are easing over time. For the question about Arkansas--Fracting is what is happening. Oil companies force water under pressure deep into the rock below to reach the oil and gas. It causes quakes, which they deny are linked. But the same thing happened in Basel, Switzerland, some years ago and in the Geysers Area, Cal. Last year. Some people think others are stupid.

Great, more maps please.
I love this app! I'm an 8th grade earth science teacher and use this with my classes all the time. The one feature I would love to see added is a more movable map. It's annoying that I can't out the pacific ocean in the center of the screen. I also can't see Antarctica. I know Antarctica doesn't often get earthquakes, but a more accurate map would rock.

...earthquake app out there. Push notifications would be nice in a future update.

Amazing App, but missing push notification.
As a geophysicist, I have used many quake apps for up to the minute info (mainly for work, but I also live next to the San Andreas Fault.) This app, while it does not have push notifications, has a nice UI and more information than any other quake app in the appstore. I especially like the tsunami warnings and the slick map implementation. I would give this app 5 stars if it had push notifications and a silenced time so notifications would be put to sleep. That would definitely make this app #1. There's an app called "Earthquakes" or something similar (with a picture of a normal fault as the icon) that almost exclusively does push. So, if instant notification is important to you, then use both apps in tandem. This is definitely the app to use for up to the minute USGS notification (short of using the actual USGS app).
