Earthquake is one of the four apps being promoted on the US App Store weather category
PlaceTrack is the best full-featured location sharing app available to date. Initially created as a background Google Latitude updater, PlaceTrack now uses its own backend infrastructure and continues to work well with even more sharing features. Your location data can now include location history, speed, altitude, whether you’re walking, running, moving in a vehicle or resting (using the new M7 coprocessor on supported devices).
Share your live location or location history with authorized PlaceTrack contacts or keep it for youself, for later viewing. Optionally publish to secret web urls so anyone with web access can see where you are or where you have been.

Last month I visited the Red Bull Hangar-7 in Salzburg, a private airport hangar owned by the founder of the energy drink company and one Europe’s most eccentric places with its stunning architecture, innovative art and an impressive collection of planes, racecars and helicopters!

Last year I launched Terremoto, a top quality (5-star average rating on the IT App Store) iOS app that keeps you informed on the latest earthquakes in Italy, using a friendly user interface and a robust backend infrastructure for targeted push notifications and post-earthquake data collection from several international sources.
Its success was so huge that I decided to divide the app into an Italian and an International, localized version, to give room for new, unique features.
Earthquake shows worldwide earthquake data from multiple networks, supports push notifications with city, country, continent and magnitude filters and offers the same feature set as the italian version:
- map view with different sized and colored circles to represent event magnitude and age
- receive push notifications on your phone as soon as the event data is available from an official source (you can set alerts based on location and/or magnitude threshold). Push notifications allow the application to receive events even when unused, without this leading to an increased consumption of battery
- event timeline (today, yesterday, previous days)
- notification alerts and events timeline support filtering by magnitude, country or continent
- detail view for any event, reachable from map and timeline views
- export data to Google Earth or other installed apps supporting kml file format
- social sharing: share event map and data to Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Email
- reverse geocoding: names of locations, when unavailable, are calculated automatically from their geographical coordinates
- no ads!
Terremoto mostra i dati relativi agli eventi sismici più recenti e consente di ricevere notifiche push non appena un evento sismico viene pubblicato.
- funzionalità di ricerca e accesso contestuale dagli eventi correnti al bollettino sismico INGV (eventi dal 1983 ad oggi)
- la funzione di export verso altre app (ad.es.Google Earth) è ora disponibile per tutti
- introdotti alcuni miglioramenti estetici e di usabilità
- iPad: risolto problema di usabilità della mappa in modalità portrait (lo scroll da sinistra poteva essere erroneamente intercettato come swipe attivando la lista degli eventi)
- corretti alcuni bug minori
già dalla versione precedente…
- ottimizzato (anche) per iPad
- possibilità di caricare ulteriori eventi verificatesi nei giorni precedenti
- possibilità di esportare l’elenco degli eventi in formato KML verso altre app, ad es.Google Earth, Dropbox, etc.)
