It's an alright app that gives a good indication of when aurora will likely be visible from the UK. Only issue with this new version is that the menu icon does not work. I am therefore unable to customise the notification threshold. I have uninstalled and instead replaced with the app of the same name by "small bouldering project". Different layout but uses the same data and the menu works. EDIT: Within hours of posting my review I got a reply from the Dev informing me that they'd fixed the issue and updated the app. Lo and behold the menu button works as intended and I have amended my rating to reflect this. Thanks again aurora watch UK.
Changing to 5*'s!! Thank you john for the quick update - settings now opening fine as is the ovation model and I assume notifications will do too now that I can get into settings :)
For me, the newest version has no options menu (there's the 3 dots on the right of title bar, but tapping it does nothing) - so I have no way of enabling the push notifications, if they still exist. Am assuming that's a bug. Samsung Galaxy A5 2017 SM-A520F on android 6.0.1
Ever since the update I cannot access the options menu, the three dots are still there but do nothing when pushed. I also get no notifications through even though they are set to yellow level or above and it was red for four hours last night!
It would be very useful if alerts could be shared, when one comes in I post on Facebook but if I could share a link from the app it would be ideal
Nice app. Works well especially now the ovation map link has been updated
Fixed issues with the Settings page
