I used to love using this app to figure out geyser times, see notes left by other people, etc. At some point since the update to the most recent Android this app has stopped working right. It just doesn't sync properly with the servers. As a result there aren't any up-to-date predictions, even the NPS predictions that should always be there. Loved the app, lovedthe concept but it just doesn't work anymore. I've deleted data and reinstalled and it didn't help sadly. Total bummer.

We apologize for the inconvenience, James. In rare cases, a corrupt database may permanently cause syncing to fail. This can be fixed by cleaning the database through our app’s settings. Unfortunately, due to a 350 characters limit we can’t provide detailed instructions here. Please contact support@geysertimes.org for further assistance.

Not able to visit Yellowstone until next year, this app satisfies the geyser geek in me. I even got to see Giantess erupt on the 11th and 12th! Picture quality is quite good. Lots of variety as whoever is in control moves the direction and focus of the camera around.

One of the reasons the sync fails might be a corrupt database. In that case trying to delete and download all data again using the clean database option that can be found in the settings of the app might solve the issue. If you continue to experience sync issues please contact support@geysertimes.org with the error message for further assistance.
