What distinguishes from the other apps is its SOCIAL function, which allows to automatically signal ongoing events to further users, who are notified on an incoming quake.
An analysis is performed on data received by each smartphones accelerometer, to create a network on the whole territory.
Each potential quake is communicated to a control center which, by complex analysis, determines with good approximation if an earthquake is occurring or not.
Theres a map in which you can see real time notifications of other devices.
COMMENTS to the events: In this way it is possible to warn other users about damages or dangers caused by the earthquake, or ask for help, sharing your position.
CHAT: There are real time chat rooms divided by language.
AUTOMATIC REPORTS: The device perceives vibrations in case of earthquake and sends a notification to a control center. So it is possible to be warned while a quake starts, and take time to get safe.
The app also allows displaying on a map and consulting easily data by:
INGV (National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology)
USGS (United States Geological Survey)
and to receive notifications every time they signal an earthquake.
PAY ATTENTION: the service is in a test phase, maybe not all the earthquakes are received correctly. For a higher precision it is necessary a big number of devices in an area.
