    Awesome earthquake app, easy to use and navigate. Sits on my home screen and notifies me when one happens.

    Don't know where this app gets its data from. It reported a non existing 6.5 quake in Hamilton 6 months ago. Not a single quake reported the last month has any similarly wirh those reported by Geonet!

    Why is number of quakes shown set to just thirty? not enough for nz just lately?
