A history for each fire shows how the fire has spread via a time-lapse view and updates over time.

Well done!

An excellent little app. A short tutorial might be a nice addition but otherwise I really like it. Also wanted to add that this would be great in landscape mode for iPads.

Great app...

Very useful app, love being able to view the history / progression of a fire of interest. Couldn't find the search function... Would be very useful and definitely give five stars if it had this feature 👍

Developer Response ,

Hi, thanks for the feedback. I've just added search to the app. A button will appear at the top right in the next couple of days. You might be able to speed up the app update by opening and closing it a couple of times.
