On two ipads it crashes now and now won't open. I like the app and have used it for a while. I did a hard reboot, and deleted then reinstalled. Still crashes. Need it for a big storm tonite.
Great 3D earth image with aurora
This is my favorite of all the Aurora Borealis apps I have. It is easy to find out exactly where you need to be to see the Northern Lights. There is a globe of the earth with an aurora overlay.
Could Use Improvements
The Push Notifications are too much. I currently have it set at 9 of 10 and I get alerts constantly. I'd say I get at least 15-20 alerts every day. I'd like to be notified when there is a significant auroral event, not multiple times every day. Where I live, the Northern Lights are only visible occasionally, so seeing such high numbers every single night essentially renders them meaningless to me. Also, I receive daytime alerts. There should, at the very least, be an option to turn alerts off during the day without having to switch the Push Notifications on and off every night. The app already knows my location and displays it on a map. Maybe, in the future, this could become more integrated into the app. I do like that it also lists the daily forecast using UAF data. I find I usually have more success using that to predict my chances of seeing the lights on any given night than if I just go by the NOAA POES data alone.
This app looks great and shows promise, but it needs to improve its practicality. Like I said, tweaking the Push Notifications to exclude alerts during daylight and twilight hours based on current location would dramatically improve its usefulness.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
