App for iPhone Now Offers Push Notifications and Twitter

Announcing that Mobeezio, Inc., the developer of Earthquake, has released an update to the app for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad users. The application offers live, up to the minute data and map view of all the earthquakes, as they happen around the world. The latest update to Earthquake gives users push notifications of quakes that register 5.0 or higher, as well as the ability to see real time Twitter activity in the area. These are additions to the impressive features that were already in place.

All of the information in the Earthquake app is real time, whether it’s data coming in or real time tweets from the area surrounding the earthquake. Users are able to find out instantly when and where earthquakes are happening across the globe. They are even supplied with crucial specifics such as, the level of seismic activity and how far away from the user’s location a quake has occurred.

The newly integrated push notification is an excellent tool for anyone following global quakes or for those living on or near fault lines. Earthquake will alert users to anything that measures 5.0 or higher on the Richter scale. Users are able to notify others of earthquake activity by emailing a detailed map screenshot and information, as well as receiving real-time Tweets in the local area. This system of networking may prove helpful for warning people to look for safe places to go in the event of a local quake.

Earthquake allows users to filter and sort the data they receive by magnitude, location or time. Results can be viewed in list form or by using the Google Map function, which adds pushpins for quick glancing. Anyone who feels an earthquake is encouraged to access the USGS website and report it, in order to alert others.
