Ratings and Reviews
Solar images not updating
One of my favorite astronomy apps! The iPad version stopped updating the solar images that appear across the top of the screen (the last image update was on June 21, 2022). I deleted the app and then reinstalled it, but that did not make a difference.
Please Update iPhone Version To iOS 11
Not only is the Solar Monitor App great, but the author is awesome. This one of the best apps in the iStore. It's precise, accurate and timely. If you're like us and need solar data and visuals instantly, for whatever application, this is the "go to" app. We've used it for years. And it still runs on iPhone 4 to iPad 2. We can't say enough of how valuable this app is.
UPDATE: 26 Jun 2017
Developer immediately fixed issue and once again, the Solar Monitor app is now functioning perfectly. This is an invaluable app with the conditions being observed in the solar environment and with the health risks involved. Thank you for a great app.
Not keeping up, cant get help
I was a dedicated user but a significant issue has developed. Since early March, the x-ray flux has not updated. I don’t know if that reflects a COVID-19 issue, or not. Website email link no longer functioning. I bought what I thought was an upgrade but that was a phone version with the same x-ray problem. They had no problem accepting my new payment, though. Given that flares are commonly rated by their x-ray strength, I hope this issue is fixed soon. Then,, it will go back to being my favorite solar app by far.
Update: Since this outfit is ignoring updates (still no x-ray flux replacement) I’m no longer happy with this app and do not recommend it. You can find nearly everything on it at internet sites.
