    What I really like about this app is it is interactive and provides useful tips on how to prepare for an earthquake. It’s not just a tool for finding out when/if an earthquake is going to occur – much more multi-faceted than that. I am curious as to the numbers of people that are truly relying on this app to notify them when there is an earthquake as opposed to those who are using it as more of a tool to prepare.
    Great concept which should be well received.
