Love the updates as well as time/percentage of an event happening.

The Aurora app is a fun, informative offering that allows those lacking the meteorology gene easily to keep a finger on the pulse of the northern night skies. It’s great shortcoming, however, is that it operates almost totally in the “now.” For example at mid-day in my locale it is not surprising to learn that there is no possibility whatsoever of enjoying the northern lights. (I don’t need an app to tell me that!). What would be most useful would be if it Aurora projected into the future, so that it might give me some idea at noon as to whether a later, 3:00 a.m. trek into the back yard might be fruitful.
Paid option 3/5
I clicked on an ad within the app by mistake. It asked me to change some settings. I take my phones security and my privacy fairly seriously.
I would much prefer a paid version.
Update. Turns out there is a paid version. I would have liked a link to the paid version available in the free version. If there was one I couldn’t find it. My Aurora Pro $1.99. Worth it not to have the ads, cause I do like the app.

Ty I enjoy this and it helps when notified
A fun and useful app 4/5
By M, M & J
I used his app pretty extensively during my recent visit to Iceland and successfully saw the Lights on two nights. I enjoyed referencing it as part of my hunting strategy. My only complaint, and why I gave 4 stars instead of 5, is the lack of instruction/explanation offered through the program. I conducted my own search to understand what I was reading. I would use again if the opportunity arose to see the Aurora.
Horribly distracting ads 1/5
I uninstalled this app in less than 2 minutes. I totally understand you need ad revenue and for many apps I use regularly I will purchase the ad free versions. This app had such a horribly distracting ad at the bottom I couldn’t even get thru putting a location in and looking around before I decided to delete it. Plenty of free info on web and other apps that are not so obnoxious. Zero stars!
Great stuff 5/5
Great stuff for checking sky colors
Amazingly accurate 5/5
Loved this app while on an aurora hunting trip to Alaska. The map, the one hour forecast and the multi day forecast were all amazingly accurate.

Yes, I really enjoy Aurora, as I live in Alaska.
Very nice 5/5
Good but some glitches 3/5
Great for getting a rough idea as to where to find the Aurora, but the pin points on location of best viewing spots are way off. Pin point for Anchorage was located north of the entire state.
Good but ... 3/5
... free ads scrolling across the bottom thoroughly annoying.
Great tool!! 5/5
Used this app to successfully see aurora 4 times in a few days in Reykjavík. The conditions can change very quickly but the app did a great job of guiding us and the notifications worked too. Thank you!
Excellent prediction 5/5
Got a notification, and a cool view of the lights!
Don’t waste your time 1/5
By Blasted Yankee
I have missed several aurora events because this app said there was no chance of an aurora... even the biggest aurora event In the last 10 years it couldn’t even predict that... which I also missed. This app is rubbish.
Where do you get your information
Awesome app 5/5
I tried multiple apps, this one was the most accurate
Northern lights 5/5
Thanks for the notification! I saw the most beautiful northern lights first time in my life in Iceland 🇮🇸 Will let others know about your app👍
Seems like a good idea...but doesn’t work 1/5
After several days of trying on multiple devices, the app never progressed “Checking KP”
Waste of time 1/5

This app will not load...
Aurora app pretty accurate 4/5
By Awed by aurora
Used this app Iceland, pretty spot on
Not clear enough 2/5
The app is not very easy to use
Surprise to even seasoned aurora hunters 5/5
By GACK Paddle
I was at dinner in Iceland when the alert can in that it may be possible to see Northern Lights in our area within the hour. The staff at hotel said, no no and pulled up a different app. We paid the bill went outside and sure enough it went from 18% chance to 40% and then they appeared..
Very cool and memorable
Perfect App! 5/5
By NJ Devils 2017
This is my first time in Alaska and the hotel staff recommended this app to track when the aurora would be visible. Turns out it was the second night I was here. Very accurate and got me to see the Northern Lights at the best possible time!
Never viewable according to app 1/5
I check this thing every day and have missed a few events. It never rises above 0% chance. Please fix it
Good indicator for the lights! 4/5
The app has been super helpful! It would be even cooler if the app would allow you to receive alerts or have an alarm feature that can go off to wake you if the lights are active in your area.
Great way to track the Auroras! 5/5
I travel full time and decided to spend this Winter in Alaska solely to get my fill and shoot the Aurora. So glad I found this app as it has everything you need to up your chances to view them no matter where you are on the globe based on your location. You won’t be disappointed.
Was able to see northern lights 5/5
This app is amazing. I was having a really hard time with the Aurora forecast website and this app made it really easy to understand where to go to see the northern lights. This app helped me see the northern lights on the last day of my Iceland trip. Thank you!!!
Love this app! 5/5
By Auntie BJB
I'm taking a trip to Iceland soon and wanted to find an app that would help me determine the best place to view the aurora borealis when visiting. It works great.
No information no alert 1/5
Downloaded the app and all it did was give the probability rate of seeing the northern lights and showing your location. It doesn’t show the location of the northern lights or alert you when they could be seen at a certain time. Bummer because we missed the show😞
I enjoy the app. and is accurate. Only downside is that I want Aurora alerts when there is a certain percent chance (user configurable) at my location. Knowing that it is an index of 5 in the middle of the day or when the sun is still up or extremely cloudy does nothing for me.
Awesome app 5/5
Few apps truly impress me compared to this one.
Great for keeping watch 4/5
By Rua O'D
The electric display of the Aurora Is a natural wonder. This make it easy to view a part of the world hidden from most.
Love this app! I check it at least 3 times a day. Great up to date info. Why miss a chance to see this magical event?
Best app 5/5
I loooooove this app
Very little to do other then see if available at any time. Really annoying, blinking, advertisement detracts from use and is often accidentally clicked on.
Wow! Check out the Gallery photos! 4/5
By Bonnie and Ian
The gallery photos are stunning! The app is easy to use. Additional control over forecast timelines and alerts would be another star. Thank you.
Terrible forecast. At least make us believe in something ? Been here for a week and didn’t see anything .. someone told us if we download this app we will
SEFINITELY see the northern lights.. erroneous on all account s
Does the job 5/5
The alerts and forecasts really help, it would be nice to have a 'news' section about upcoming solar flares or storms.
Must have if searching for Northern Lights 5/5
I don’t normally review apps, but this one totally deserves it. My wife and I traveled to Iceland and this app was great. Alerted us that lights were in the area and sure enough, there they were. Right outside our hotel. Caught amazing pics! Get it!
I think that it is an amazing app. I was hoping to see the northern lights. And I did.
Aurora sightings 5/5
This was a great help for us knowing if aurora will appear in our location. Indeed it appeared twice in one night . First one was jus 5 mins then nex one hour. The green map tells you its still there n their KP n percentage was right.. now i know how to catch aurora then..
Worked perfectly for us 5/5
By Val from Maryland
We specifically came to iceland to see the northern lights. We had no luck on a bus trip or on a boat cruise. I downloaded this app. When in Reykoldt in West Iceland, I received an alert that there was a high likelihood they would be visible in an hour. The forecast was spot on. Visibility started at the time predicted and ended due to cloud coverage 30 minutes later. Our entire tour group cheered and I was the heroine who allowed it to happen thanks to Aurora.
WONDERFUL app 5/5
AMAZING app. I did use this app in Alaska many times. Everything was show me correct! Thank you for this app
Great app 4/5
Left one star off because the gallery really needs to be real time with dated pictures, otherwise it's unhelpful for anyone chasing the lights
Does not set for where I am going however developer response incredible 4/5
By Open table better
Cannot set my travel location. Got a contact from developer and all is good. Incredible response time.
Light watcher 3/5
This is my go to app when I want to know if there's a possibility of seeing the Northern Lights.
None functioning 1/5
The app doesn’t provide any useful information. I couldn’t recommend this app to any one. Sorry but it needs a lot of work. Will be deleting.
