xQuake App for the iPad

It was in Papua New Guinea that I experienced my first earthquake. I awoke in the middle of the night because the bed was shaking.  I heard a vase of flowers as they toppled over. My first thought was that someone was breaking into the house from underneath the floorboards.

When I read a tweet this weekend from
Chris Smith @shamblesguru,
I followed his lead and went straight over to iTunes to download xQuake. It’s usally $2.99 but it’s free today, October 15.

Chris has also uploaded a movie on Youtube
that shows you the program in more detail.

Earthquakes are fascinating and this app is engrossing.

You can view a list by

  • date
  • magnitude
  • name

Below is a screenshot showing my favorite settings:

Here is a 3D – Satellite screenshot using the settings shown immediately above.

This app is a lot of fun. Try it out today while it is free!
