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
By its eruthela
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.
Northern lights 2/5
Don't trust this app, just go outside and look. Last night I was on a ship just South of Kirkenes Norway taking pictures of the beautiful dancing Northern Lights overhead and the app said only 38% chance. I gave it 2 stars because it's a pretty app and it looks like a lot of work went into it, not for the accuracy. Just look up.
Awesome app 5/5
By Senthil Singaravelu
App notified to check out northern lights when we were in Iceland if the sky was clear within the hour and the lights lite up the sky in 30+ minutes. Worked perfectly for us on the last day of our trip with a beautiful view from our porch. Had not bothered to check the app until I saw the notification:). Next time I will
Great app! 5/5
The forecasts are pretty accurate and is in an easily digestible format.
No instruction, No results 2/5
The app only provides site in other countries. Doesn’t give you any options
Love it 5/5
I, unfortunately, live in Southern California so I'm not able to see the aurora in person, but I am an aurora live cam junkie. This app is super useful in letting me know where the best places to tune in from are, how active I can expect the aurora to be in the coming days, and it alerts me to auroras in the place I've set as home. I wish I could set multiple places for alerts, but the 'find best places to watch' function is nearly as good. If you're an aurora borealis lover and dreamer, this app is necessary.
Whats KP index??? 1/5
Need more education for non proficient people on those technical information.
Great App! 5/5
By My other car is a 747
This app is awesome!
It would be perfect but... 5/5
It would be awesome if they could add a section where people could post sightings/locations near you, I am imagining that in the app you could set it to show sightings within a certain radius of your location, this would be really helpful for nights in place like Minnesota(northern US) where it is not too often that we can see the AB, and so we can be sure that there are sightings tonight that would make some of the less risk takers among us to be assured that we could see them on that night.
Nice Alerts 5/5
I spend a lot of time in northern Greenland at the Thule AirBase. So far north you have to look south to see the Aurora! I set my location to Pituffik and get alerts. First time it was a spot on accurate prediction!
Nice app but the ads are obnoxious 3/5
Ads that pretend to messages, ads that block part of the app, etc, all of which take you off to dodgy websites if you click by accident. The aurora alerts don't always seem well tailored to my region. I get them during broad daylight sometimes!
Super helpful! It works 5/5
I downloaded this at the last minute as we were heading out from Reykjavik to find the Northern Lights. Based on the maps and satellite info we were treated to an AMAZING view! USE THIS APP!! It works!!
Needs more data 2/5
It’s okay but needs more data points. Solar flare data and Bz data would be a start.
Needs instructions, or at least a legend 2/5
By Zeeba Neighba
This may be a useful app, but I wouldn’t know, because it gives you lots of charts to look at and no explanation as to what they mean. I really can’t figure out how to use it. Maybe there’s an explanation of how to interpret the data somewhere, but if so, they sure made it hard to find.
Thursday Night Light Show 5/5
Your app told me I had a 40% chance of seeing the lights and at 9:30pm the hotel called my room and I got 2 hrs of dancing, swirling, circling, spiking and arcing lights chasing all across the sky. I was on a photographers tour and everyone got awesome shots!!!!! Thank bunches for an awesome app!
Great app but.... 4/5
By Ur whack
This app was great then I updated it and now it closes out on me over and over again ☹ I really hope this issue gets fixed cause I really like this app!🤗
Very handy 5/5
Awesome app! No northern lights yet 5/5
Love the app! I just haven't had any northern lights to judge it by 😭
Cool stuff 5/5
Was a bit hard to negotiate initially but has worked well.
Very accurate 5/5
By T zbone
Very useful app for aurora hunters
Northern lights 4/5
Pretty decent app,, shows enough about the lights & best locations to see them
Sad but true 5/5
By Gone a
Read that here in PA we may have a chance to see the aurora borealis lights. This app said my chances were zero. I kept a look out anyway ...but the app was right.
Easy. A really fun app! I've only seen Aurora borealis once here in southern mi but hoping to get another chance. Fun app to use while camping in northern mi too.
Really 3.5 Stars 4/5
Good app but fails to define what it's doing. I had to google to understand what I'm seeing.
Awesome app 5/5
This app does what I need.
It tells me forecasted intensity of magnetic activity to know if autoras will be visible in my area or not
Love it! 5/5
Anyone who picks up a camera or just enjoys the night.. should absolutely get this app!
By Lights Action
I'm glad that someone wrote this app and I hope to get a chance to actually see the northern lights when all the stars align. I'm 3 hours from the Canadian border, so not north enough to have any chance without an app like this!
Love love love this app 5/5
I have been searching for a long time for a good aurora app. This is awesome. You won't be disappointed.
Enjoying it very much.
Where's the lights? 4/5
I find myself checking the app to see where the aurora is, this app gives you a visual idea of where the aurora may be at the moment. It's help cuz you can gauge your chances and time to catch the natures most beautiful show.
