Rumble Radar Released!

Recently, motivated by the launch of Windows 8 and the recent seismic activity on the Mid-Atlantic region.  I began to work on a very simple project, a Windows 8 Store application that showcases recent significant seismic activity worldwide using the data provided by the United States Geological Survey (http://www.usgs.com).  I am proud to announce that the first version of my app “Rumble Radar” is available now for download from the Windows 8 Store.
