Earthquake? There’s An App For That

When you think of all the things smartphones can do now, why NOT make an app that can alert you to an earthquake?

That’s what the brains have been testing at the seismological lab at the University of California-Berkeley; an app called MyShake.

In its current configuration the app gives smartphone users confirmation of quakes, using some of the technology used in making today’s games.

The eventual plan for the app is to have it function as a warning system.

Richard Allen heads up the app project at the lab and joins us on The Exchange.
