In late 2012, the Mission Mode blog did a very nice job of reviewing disaster and crisis apps for the iPhone and iPad. Their effort included brief reviews of 15 apps with capabilities that range from simple look up features like a NIMS pocket guide, to those that display dynamic real time data like NEXRAD weather radar. Over half the apps reviewed - have a mapping interface (but who's counting). To check out the offerings, use the link below:

Comment: The truly amazing thing in this review - the iPhone is only five and one-half years old and all the featured apps are considerably younger than that, with most being less than two-years old.
