Haven't seen the Lights yet, but the app is much simpler and easier than anything else I've used. It doesn't give you a bunch of the "siencey" stuff I don't know any about anyway. Just simply answers the question, "Are the Northern Lights possible here tonight". Can wait to rate it AFTER it has correctly predicted a good viewing. Until then it's just an easier app to understand with good graphics and intuitive interface.

One of the best Autora apps out there for UX. It would be nice to have diverse categories or only be notified for lights near you. It's cool to see other people's pictures, but if you're using this app for notifications to go check outside, the onslaught of notifications aren't helpful. Only having access to pro features through a subscription service instead of single payment doesn't make much sense when this app is very useful to tourists.

Toolwise is exceptional, the best app and the one that I used to see and have amazing pictures of the aurora 3 times in the last 10 days. BUT while I was using it, a key function in my opinion (moments) went from available to requiring a registeration. I understand that you need people to be registered in order to post pictures for security reasons and control, but to watch others' pictures? I feel it's unnecessary.

Users viewing photos is what cost us the most, hundred of dollars. We are only two passionate working on this project during our spare time. We had to find a way to minimize the number of views and a better to control on our costs. That's the best trade-off we found, hope you understand. Cheers

What's new

Hi there!

It's a happy day. The long standing issue leaving you stuck in the onboarding screens has been defeated!

Also improved the community screen, some moments were duplicated when re-loading the screen.

What else, made the buttons transitions nicer. I like it.

Oh yeah, also, quite big one, added more information on the sign up screen for the email field, and show the email used when sending the verification email. And added an option to edit your email if you made a typo. Neat!
