Can't live without it!!!

I love this app! It provides much more information than the Solar Alert app. It lets me know when the sun emits dangerous flares which can affect electrical systems, navigational systems, and satellites. It also warns me when there will be blackouts in the HF radio spectrum - very important to know when sending and receiving on HF frequencies. It' a great source of information in learning about and understanding how the sun behaves. This is one app you cannot live without!

Good app

This is a good app but it hasn't been updated for 2 years - i hope this doesn't mean the app has been abandoned.

One thing I would like to have is the ability to choose which sun images are shown rather than the default 4 (the ipad version has many more). It would be nice if it provided the dynamic pressure too.

Please continue to develop this app. It is still one of the best solar apps. BTW: notices do come properly and timely.

Two Thumbs Up And a High Five!

Alright then, I am a geek, but I have not regretted purchasing this application, shall I say, more than three iPhones ago. The push notification feature has added value to this app. I recommend Solar Monitor to those who want information that is approximately eight light minutes ahead of most people.
