All the data and functionality I need!

Finding a good a Spaceweather app has been almost as difficult as waiting for a G4 storm to hit on a night without rain, clouds or moonlight.

Other SW apps seem to be thrown together by developers with no interest or knowledge of space weather at all. SpaceWeatherLive functions as if its developer is an actual astronomer! Imagine that!

Thank you and great work, Parsec VZW!

Nice app with a lot of info.

Few things as I really haven't played with this much but so far I like it. Tons of information in here to digest.

The dark theme I prefer due to eye strain but seems like screen writes get hosed up. Some elements towards the bottom of the home page either take a minute to write or don't write at all. Light theme works fine.

Also in the dark theme some section definition like in the light theme should be encorporated (boarders).

Question: does this alert based on my location and if so how does it know where I am as there wasn't any popup to allow location?

I am on an iPhone 6s.

Thank you for your review!
The dark mode can indeed be resource intensive as it inverts the color of images and graphs to make it dark enough for your eyes. We value your feedback on this and we'll look into this further to make this faster and more responsive.
All alerts are not based on your location, we value your privacy a lot and we do not ask your location and we don't use your location for the alerts. Everyone around the globe receives the alerts as Space Weather happens.


More then I expected!!

This app is everything you need! They keep info updated and flowing. Alerts, forecasts, images, graphs and even explanations of what your looking at.

Great for someone wanting to learn about the sun or for those who need to follow its activity!!

Amazing work!! Donation worthy!!
