It quit working in Oklahoma. When I tried to report they app is no longer receiving data for Oklahoma, they bounds the support message back. It works for location in California I monitor, but it no longer get data for Oklahoma. Oklahoma has had 2 strong earthquakes in the past few days, but reports no earthquakes in Oklahoma. Oklahoma averages 12 a day. Past few days they have been strong. Strong enough for the to stop operations and a wastewater injection well (fracking site). We could have a major one, but this app won't work. Like I said, they bounced back my support email reporting it, so it's probably a dead project. Or they don't like complains when it doesn't work. Others I know here in Oklahoma have reported the same problem.

Not Accurate or Timely This app will notify you anywhere from 15 minutes to 45 minutes (or longer) after an event. Sometimes it doesn't even notify you, even with a moderate event/earthquake. Several times I have felt earthquakes and never received any notification, well within the radius and well over the minimum magnitude, as well as confirmed by the USGS. I am uninstalling it and using the USGS earthquake search instead.
