Used to be awesome, now it's awful!! This app used to be fantastic, but now on my Samsung Galaxy S5, NOTHING COMES UP AT ALL!!!!! There is no forecast whatsoever!! PLEASE FIX THIS!!! I used to be able to rely on your app to tell me when Auroras were nearby and to be able to photograph them all of the time. Now I can't use this app at all, which is very frustrating!! If you can fix this, I will upgrade my rating!!
Good free app but watch out for updates I have been using this app for more than a year now and have found it suits my requirements well. It presents data about upcoming aurora activity in a clear easily understandable format with a map (that isnt the size of a postage stamp and really low res, like other apps I have tried). I really like the notification alearts that can be configured for different levels. For a free app I would have given this 5 stars, but a recent update has resulted in aurora data being unavailable: UNKNOWN. Hence only 3*
No longer works! Used to be great but no longer updates since Nov\Dec 2014. Says strength unknown. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling but still does not work on tablet or phone. This app was last updated in 2012. Looks like the developer has lost interest. Other functioning aurora apps available on play store. Uninstalling Aurora Buddy.
if it worked it would be great - it does not! Its so sad that an app with so much potential fails so badly - once again this has crashed and still shows the data from several days ago ........ it seems that everytime there is any activity then aurora buddy dies - which makes the whole thing pretty pointless But what really amazes me is that the advert for the pro version is still there ...... how on earth do you think anyone would even consider paying all that money for a more complicated version when the basic one is so useless?? I really want an aur
This is a pretty slick, very streamlined app with all of the basic functionality of NOAA's POES satellite web page. The alert function however, seems a bit sporadic.
As soon as I opened the app a message appeared from the creator of this app saying to download pro because this version isn't updated and has no location based features Apparently these storms occur without much warning. The kp number can change in a matter of minutes, so this app is pretty useless if you're actually trying to get out and see the northern lights. Thanks but no thanks. Uninstalling now.
FINALLY found and fixed the bug that some people were reporting regarding the strength not updating. This is now completely fixed.
