    It used to send the alerts well. We had a a quake at 6:22 am and it is now 4:11 pm and it is still not alerting, but it is all over the web.

    No matter what city I try to add i get a error. So it make it useless if you can't get earthquake alerts.

    I have 20/20 vision and cannot read the instructions on how 2 react during and after an earthquake. And there seems to be no way of making it larger. I am using a Samsung Galaxy s4 which has a pretty large screen.

    There needs to be a time associated with the alert info. When reviewing quake info there's no reference to time or frequency.
