App Reviews

  • Great app

    By jokun
    Please update this app. I really depend on it. It saves me allot of set-up time at the scope.
  • Needs update

    By Eruantion
    Please update this app. I love the app but apple will take it off when they no longer support 32 bit. I truly hope someone takes this on. Is there anything else available out there??
  • Is this app going away?

    By FreddyFlibble
    I like this app a lot but it hasn't been updated in a long time and it appears with iOS 11 this app will likely not work because it is 32-bit. Has the author of this app abandoned it?

    Excellent App over the past 5 years. Please update for iOS 11. There is nothing else on the market like this app for professionals.
  • Needs updating

  • Please update

    Please update this app solar monitor man!!
  • Needs an update

    By Cassie m
    This is an awesome app, it always alerts me when there is a possible aurora. However, it desperately needs an update, it even tells me so every time i open it. It's formatted to fit an iPhone 4 and the telescope imagery rarely loads, which is crucial for someone who chases the Aurora. Please update !!
  • Outstanding app!!! 🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆

    The best app for current solar/space weather. This app is a must for iOS 11 and beyond... Please attend to upgrade modifications for continued use. 🙂
  • Good app - updated

    By The emusifyer
    This app needs updated to 64 bit. Once IOS 11 is released, this app will cease to work. Do not purchase this app until it's updated to work with the new IOS. Previous review: This is a good app. One thing I would like to have is the ability to choose which sun images are shown rather than the default 4 (the ipad version has many more). It would be nice to get the video feed of the rotating sun too. Please continue to develop this app. It is still one of the best solar apps. BTW: notices do come properly and timely.
  • It broke on May 14

    By Antarantanka
    The app broke on May 14, 2017, the electron flux no longer goes past May 14. Also gets warnings from IOS that app needs to be revised. 32 but app instead of 64 bit?
