To be quite honest, if I lived in or was visiting, an area of the world that was prone to the odd earthquake, a GPS tracking application like this one would be one of the first things I would pick up. Earthquake Buddy is a new app that s designed to save lives and put your friends' and families' minds at rest. Download the app and nominate four friends or family members who are automatically contacted as soon as a quake larger than 5.5 on the Richter scale. The app will nail down your position on a map so that your friends will know exactly where you are. This could come in useful if you are trapped under a ton of rubble, don't you think?
If you live in a quake zone or have friends or family traveling through quake areas, Earthquake Buddy is a must-buy app. It is a unique and revolutionary new app for mobile that is designed to save thousands of lives in an earthquake. But don't think for a second that it is nothing more than a quake-chasing app! This app will pin-point your location as soon as a 5.5+ earthquake strikes. Then it will send an instant, geo-tagged mapped email to your four chosen friends or family members.  Earthquake Buddy is endorsed by the Global Recovery Czar, Prof. Ed Blakely, (Hurricane Katrina, Haiti and Japan quake) to be the only app in the world that finds you after a quake hits. Using high-tech algorithms and by using community support and engagement, Earthquake Buddy helps find missing friends and loved-ones immediately after a quake. Once you install the app, you will be asked to enter details of four buddies who will automatically and instantaneously receive an instant email showing your Google mapped position if you are unlucky enough to be in the vicinity of a quake over 5.5. You can also manually post your details to Facebook and Twitter. On a more sombre note, Earthquake Buddy also allows you to record a special video/audio message to be sent to your loved ones should you not be found after a quake. It also includes tips in a quake and a bright torch to help guide you after a quake.
If you have friends of family or were planning to visit places like Northern Italy or New Zealand at the moment you would be wise to invest in a GPS tracking application for your own safety and for your family's mental health. I can't imagine anything more terrifying than the thought of being buried under rubble and debris in an Earthquake ravaged town or city. Earthquake Buddy is a very useful (and potentially life saving) app that you can keep on your mobile that will inform your friends where you can be located in the event of an eruption. It's simple to use - you really only have to nominate your four friends with phone numbers and email addresses - and everything else is automatic.
