There's An App For That? Earthquakes

MyShake is a free Android app from a team at UC Berkeley which can detect possible earthquake activity and "call it in" to be analyzed and used as needed. It uses the accelerometer present in most smartphones to recognize possible quake activity.
“Our goal is to build a worldwide seismic network and use the data to reduce the effects of earthquakes on us as individuals, and our society as a whole,” according to the app’s website. MyShake also gives users information about recent earthquakes around the world, as well as significant historical earthquakes.
