Frequently Asked Questions
1) Because the time listed is different from that of the INGV web site?
The website of INGV zone is at Greenwich without daylight saving. The application, however, shows the correct time with the phone settings (+2 in Italy with daylight savings).
2) Why is it sometimes seems that it skips updates in the background
If the update is successful for temporary connection problems, the application waits for another try, the next update and tried again to avoid excessive battery drain.
3) You may have added a filter on places of interest?
The locations are added by the INGV technical and do not necessarily follow a convention well defined: it is considering filtering on the basis of the coordinates, though it might not be easy to use.
4) You could have a longer history?
The town has been reintroduced in the experimental stage and is based on data from the Italian Seismic Bulletin dating back to 2002.
5) What about the earthquakes of other nations?
In some cases the INGV also includes these earthquakes, apparently because of considerable intensity and also detected by us.
6) Ideally the date as day, month, year.
The format of the representation is left on the phone according to its location.
7) is missing an update every 5 minutes.
It was estimated that too frequent updates could affect consumption of the battery 15 minutes seemed appropriate, given the average frequency of earthquakes in Italy.
8) It consumes so much battery.
Exactly ... In fact when it is closed, the application does not consume anything except when it checks for new earthquakes, with frequency set by the user. The verification consists of a brief data connection (2-3 Kbytes). In case of abnormal consumption, I suggest you send me an email.
9) I hope you see only SMALL curiosity.
I hope so too.
