Editors' Review

Learn about earthquake disasters and how to prepare for them with the free Earthquake app for Android by the American Red Cross. It helps you plan and prepare not just for earthquakes but the other disasters that follow them, too. Alerts and notifications keep you informed before, during, and after earthquake events. You can also learn all about earthquakes and their history and then quiz yourself on the knowledge.

Pros

Be prepared: If you live in an earthquake-prone area, get this app. If you're not sure if you live in an earthquake-prone zone, get this app.

Shelters: This app can help you find local shelters when disaster strikes. Shelter data is updated every 15-30 minutes.

Custom alerts: We could monitor multiple locations for seismic alerts, set a Notification Radius in miles, and even configure a magnitude threshold for triggering alerts.

Emergency tools: A briefcase full of emergency tools includes a Flashlight, Strobe Light, Alarm, First Aid, and an "I'm Safe" tool that uses social media to notify anxious family and friends that you're OK.

Cons

Bit dull: This well-made app is clear and informative and essential for anyone living in an earthquake zone, but it has all the personality of a government pamphlet. Then again, an earthquake is excitement enough!

Bottom Line

We can't stress enough how important Earthquake -- American Red Cross might turn out to be to those in earthquake zones, which are more widespread than you might think. Why guess? Be prepared: Better to have this app and not need it than need it and not have it.
