Pros and cons of QuakeWatch app for iPhone and iPad

QuakeWatch app good for

Is it real, that there are much more Earthquakes over 6.0 in the last Year, then all Years before?
Worksike a charm! Easy to use, thoughtful options - like biggest, most recent & closest earthquakes. Zoomable graphical representation, links to data. Living in an earthquake zone, like to check it out. Good as an educational tool, too. Just add Canadian data and its a 5 star!
As soon as Canadian feed is added this app will top them all!
Living in Vancouver I love being able to keep an eye on things, $$ well spendt
Well thought out and user friendly. No functional problems and does not crash or freeze, one of my favorite apps.
This App has zero problems and is super informative. Reports from all over the world in your real time. Great maps and locators. Very interesting to watch all the seismic activity around the globe!!

Some bad moments

You will NOT have infos from most countries OUTSIDE USA. Check before buying.
I used to love it, because it had up to the minute info on quakes near me and around the world. Now it seems to be hours, even days behind - despite updating, refreshing the feed and even uninstalling/reinstalling. Not sure what has happened with this app, but what a shame......fix your bugs, QuakeWatch!
This used to be a great, informative app. 2-3minutes tops after I felt a quake I could check and be informed. Now it takes hours and sometimes days to update and see a recent quake. Please fix this issue and Ill give it 5stars again.
No longer getting notifications. Earthquake results are days old. Use to be a great app but not so much now.
Tried to download on 3 devices, keeps putting my location in wrong place.
This app hasnt been updated since August of 2014, no wonder it isnt accurate anymore, use to be a great app
