android earthquake alerts are creepy

oh it was deep, thank goodness - I was worried given how strong but far away it was

@PetraOleum I wonder if it’s something Apple will get in on, from what I hear the Android ones are impressively fast.

@PetraOleum @Firesphere I guess the main thing is avoiding false alarms really, though I’ve heard it’s been good on that front too. I had a read up on how it works, pretty neat method using the in phone hardware and “crowd sourcing” the sensor network.

@alex @Firesphere it's great, but it was so fast this time I put my phone down thinking 'oh, can't feel anything, must have missed it' before I felt it
