Until the last update, ads were unobtrusive. The app was informative and user friendly. Now the devs have launched loud full page ads which tie up the screen for a relatively long period of time. Another user who complained was told, essentially, if you don't like it then pay up. I really hate it when devs insert such ads in the guise of an update. It commercializes the app. It detracts from it's supposed informative, educational purpose. But wait, there's a Space Weather Live website.

Ads can be removed with an in-app subscription at a very reasonable price. Due to our growth our bills rose a lot, so we need the extra ad revenue to keep everything up and running. You can support SpaceWeatherLive with an in-app subscription and enjoy an ad-free experience or view some ads that also supports our project.

A lot of good information, but I can't subscribe to notifications. The permission is enabled, notifications are allowed, and battery use is unrestricted. Clicking the yellow 'open app settings' button opens the system's app info page (which doesn't have any push notification settings). I do pay for ad-free. Edit: I can't find a way to 'send a message' in the app. My notification ID is 'undefined' and therefore pretty unhelpful...

If the push notification ID is undefined, something is blocking the connection to our push notifications provider. A common cause is the use of a VPN or a firewall blocking it. Our email is on our app page, or you can contact us on the site/forum.

While I have long enjoyed this app, it has recently taken to displaying full screen ads with video and sound upon opening. This is a serious issue if, for example, I check a notification while my spouse is still asleep. Up until recently, ads were unobtrusive. If it doesn’t stop ASAP, I will have to uninstall the app.
