Tokyo has been in a state of unrest for well over a month now, due to the recent natural disasters, which has had a diverse effect on a number of markets, such as gaming and the auto industry. It is for this reason why a new earthquake warning app for the iPhone has been developed. The application for your Apple smartphone only gives you a 10 second warning, but this can be very valuable in many cases.
Yurekuru call for iPhone is free and has been developed by RC Solution Co., which some of you may know that they specialize in providing information on disasters. This kind of system has been around for a few years now, but it is thanks to the iPhone that has now made it a more affordable option to deliver the warning to the people in Japan.
The way that you know when an earthquake is coming is simple, as an alarm is activated on your iPhone. The message will offer information, such as how strong it will be. You can decide that you do not want the warning if it is only a little shake, only making the phone ring if it goes over a certain level.
10 seconds may not sound like much, but if you are in the home or at work you can get yourself under a table or doorframe. Maybe you could be walking across the road, and you will then have that precious time to get across before things start to happen? Download the app from iTunes.
Have you downloaded the app, has it managed to save your life?
