This was a great app to help us prepare for the eclipse. We traveled from Ohio to Nashville and able to pick and know our viewing location details. At the time of the eclipse, the app failed...which shows how overwhelming this event was. We didn't really need the app during the eclipse, so not a deal breaker for us. The app is well organized and easy to follow. Thanks for making it available.
After an initial bad experience (no map, really slow or frozen) I retried it a week or 2 later, it is now working like it should; the map renders, pans, zooms, etc. Not sure whether there was an update in the interim. Im giving it a 4, cuz its providing convenient and useful info: start & end times, eclipse% that updates for every location.
We have been travelling across country to get to our viewing destination. Kinda fun to use interactive map while travelling. Time has come for the final details, what time do we need to leave house etc only to find out the app is reporting the wrong time for this location. Glad we were with friends who used old school tech, the local newspaper.
I can get to the location I want to pin but I cannot hold down on the screen to pin it. Look like good app but I have tried on IPhone 7s and Samsung S7 Edge and no luck. Push on the screen where I want to save/pin and get nothing
Should have received a five as it was working great until the day of the Eclipse. Then the day of the eclipse it quit giving Duration, Eclipse begins, Totality begins, Maximum, Totality ends, and Eclipse ends for any location. In further review it should be noted that as much planning that can be done overwhelming numbers of users and access can never be anticipated for an event such as the eclipse was and therefore what I observed was not the fault of the app, but rather the server array which was extended beyond its ability.
I found everything I needed to know on your app weeks before the eclipse. Thanks for making it the best eclipse I'll ever see. I wouldn't have had such a good experience without your help. 5 stars❤
