Natural Disaster Monitor

Natural Disaster Monitor


You can monitor natural disasters around the world, as published by the Global Disaster Alert and Coordination System - www.gdacs.org. The app shows the latest natural disasters like earthquakes, volcano eruptions, tropical cyclones, tsunamis and floods as color coded icons in a list as well as on a Google Maps backdrop; the icon colors indicate the alert level - green, orange, and red. The icon will look more transparent the older the event was published. The list view can be used to sort the natural disaster events according to the datetime, region, and disaster type. Clicking on the item will bring up more details about the disaster event. UTM or geographic grids can optionally be displayed on the map.

The current version will no longer be available for Gingerbread handsets. However, the previous version 2.1 for Gingerbread can be side loaded from this link https://www.dropbox.com/s/tti3qlmzohxr3hd/Disastermon-2.1.apk.

Way too intrusive Ads, Little or no USA Alerts The Ads are over the top, way too intrusive and take up too much screen space. Also, there seems to be little or no USA Alerts. There are NO Settings to control Alerts and area of interest except for "Grid line color". I'm unistalling this APP, hoping that there will be a better version offered in the future. I would be willing to pay a reasonable price for an APP that fits my requirements that is without Ads.
