Best Aurora app available!

I was involved with beta testing this app and worked closely with the developer to incorporate features that I found lacking in other apps. Prior to using Amazing Aurora, I would reference two other apps plus at least two webpages of Space Weather Live in order to see the information I needed to pursue and photograph the aurora. Amazing Aurora puts all that information in one place, in a simple, intuitive format that’s easy to see and understand. This is one of those apps designed to provide a useful service, not as a gimmicky money maker for the developer.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for the excellent review! And, more importantly, thank you for all of the work testing and recommending refinements! One step closer to being THE premier aurora app!

Amazing Aurora App!

This was our second visit to Alaska and we had yet to see the Northern Lights. We used another app the first time and it just didn’t provide us much usable information.

We used this app last night and it literally nailed the lights down to almost the exact minute. If it would not have been for the information provided on this app, I doubt that my wife and I would have stayed out several hours in the cold to see the amazing views we got to see at 1am.

Thank you to the developers. It made out year!

Developer Response ,

Thank you for the feedback! This story is exactly why this app was created. There are a lot of variables at play with aurora activity and Amazing Aurora aims to be informative for those who want to know when the time is right to experience the beauty and wonder of the northern lights. Mission accomplished!

Best Aurora App!

I used to have to pull up two apps and two websites to get a “good” guesstimate of what to expect for northern lights predictions, not anymore! This app does it all in one place and makes seizing the opportunities to hop in the car or run outside to catch a glimpse so much easier! It’s an Aurora game changer!

Developer Response ,

Thank you for the great review! The goal is to make it easier for everyone to experience the northern lights with the best information available. It sounds like we’re on the right track!
