  • 3 : Do not disturb override is not working! Got a notification of the 4.5 quake but no sound. I was lucky and using my phone at the time. Got a 2 to 3 second warning. Thank you! Please fix! It works!
  • 3 : Looks like a update is overdue, took a few minutes after the shaking stopped before it even updates the recent quakes list and 07/30/2020 initially reported as a 4.5, no alert, then downgraded to a 4.2 while changing location further away from the epicenter along with aftershock 10 minutes later which both show on opposite sides of the city line where initially reported miles away from where it now lists. People can't move to safety when app doesn't work within parameters anymore.
  • 1 : Got a notification after hearing the p-wave from the EQ in El Monte, but it wasn't from this app. The shaking started a couple seconds after that. About 30 mi from the epicenter in SFV.
  • 5 : Just had an earthquake and the app alerted me. The alert came in within 2 seconds of the quake hitting! I think most of my excitement is due to reading the alert and understanding it, just as the quake hit!!!! GREAT TECHNOLOGY
  • 1 : Totally worthless app! Never got an alert regarding the 9/18/20 earthquake. The only alert I received was from the actual quake itself. I am installing this piece of garbage app!
  • 1 : Just recently had a 4.6 quake here in L.A. and there was no warning or alert whatsoever from this useless app. 🤨 MyShake app is much better. At least THAT one worked!
  • 1 : I have this thing downloaded but I really don't know what it does. We just had a magnitude 4.2 this morning and even though my alerts and notifications are on (& I live in SFV) but I didn't get any notices or notifications or anyting B4 or after the quake
  • 2 : Sux because an earthquake just happened and I was not notified and I have allowed access all the time. Very disappointing as its not even showing me on the maps where it happened
  • 5 : Doesn't seem to drain my battery, but thankfully, I also have no idea if it even works. All it means is that we just haven't had a really nasty earthquake yet. I guess we have that to look forward to....
  • 1 : The location enabled at all times is an automatic "No" for me. Even privacy issues asides, it will kill your battery. The argument for having it on, is very weak. Instead, let me enter zip codes or areas of city for areas I need notifications for. Untill then delete. Developer, look at other comments, they all the same.
  • 5 : Sept 18 2020, I had a 4.6 earthquake and the app warned me 5 seconds before it happened. It was not life threatening but thanks to the app, I knew it going to happen. I would like to thank the developers for making it.
  • 1 : Just had a 4.6 near me and I felt it and the app didn't go off. Some other people it did though. Guess they were closer.
  • 1 : No alert prior to recent earthquake. Apparently settings are set to 4.5. Which recently we've had on that large.
  • 1 : USELESS! Yesterday at 11:38 P.M. There was 4.6 Earthquake in South El Monte, and I did not receive ANY ALERT OF ANY TYPE!!! Both My Husand, and I are signed up for texted messages, and of course I have this app, and we both have our emails are set up for it too... Got NOTHING!!! My Brother In-Law Said He Got A Text Message 5 Minutes Before The Earthquake Came. It Would Be Nice For Everyone To Get An Alert 5 Minutes Before Every Earthquake. It Shouldn't Depend Where Your At Or How Hard It! J/S!
  • 1 : This app sucks. It does not do what it said it would. Just had an earthquake and did not get any notification. Unistalling. . . .

Q: What is an APK File?

A: An Android Package Kit (APK for short) is the package file format used by the Android operating system for distribution and installation of mobile applications. Just like Windows (PC) systems use an .exe file for installing software, Android does the same.

Q: Why CloudApks.com can guarantee APK 100% safe?

A: Whenever someone wants to download an APK file from CloudApks.com, we'll check the corresponding APK file on Google Play and allow user download it directly (of course, we'll cache it on our server). If the APK file does not exist on Google Play, we'll search it in our cache.

Q: If I install an APK from CloudApks.com, will I be able to update the app from the Play Store?

A: Yes, absolutely. The Play Store installs APKs it downloads from Google's servers, and sideloading from a site like CloudApks.com goes through a very similar process, except you're the one performing the downloading and initiating the installation (sideloading).
As soon as the Play Store finds a version of the app newer than the one you've sideloaded, it will commence an update.

Q: What are Android Application permissions?

A: Applications require access to certain systems within your device. When you install an application, you are notified of all of the permissions required to run that application.
