Customer Reviews

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!

Great App!

I use this app regularly being I’m a ham radio operator. Know solar weather helps me decide which bands will be effective for good communications both locally and other areas.
The app needs to be updated to work for the new iOS 11. I feel lost not getting the notifications now that iPhone has been updated so the app now is no longer compatible.
This app is the best ever just wish it was updated to work with iOS 11

Good app - updated

This app needs updated to 64 bit. Once IOS 11 is released, this app will cease to work. Do not purchase this app until it's updated to work with the new IOS.

Previous review: This is a good app. 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 to get the video feed of the rotating sun too.

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