Useful, not yet perfect Would be useful to limit push notifications of quakes to selectable minimum level, also (maybe it does??) to set visible and audible alerts under predetermined circumstances. Could it also connect to monitor emergency or NOAA radio channels? But great information, worth having - and watch for improvements.
