I saw my first flare tonight and it came exactly when it said it would. Great and simple app for cheap. I would pay extra for it to have a real time map of the sky so I could follow the iridium sat easier but I love this app anyway. I got a -8 coming tomorrow night. I hope it's clear out. If you didn't know heavens-above it the premier website for satellite tracking so this apps info should never be wrong.

Hey hey it works!
I was initially dubious as it crashed twice right after purchase. But then it 'got better'. Tried for a -6 last night but cloudy. Tonight two in a row as predicted--a -1 then a -2 right after. Brilliant! Simple app. No real complaints.

Nearly perfect!
I love this app... It works well for me, and reports its predictions pretty quickly. Nice job! Someday I hope to be able to convince some natives that I'm a god with this info. Suggested improvements: I wish it could show me the times in countdown mode, and I wish it could help me find the right spot in the sky by using the angle sensor built into the iPhone (and the compass, if available).

Fantastic App
This is a really fantastic app. Does just what it says it will. I've caught 4 flares since installing it last week. It is lacking a few things though: 1) GPS coordinates of the point directly under the flare (and then a link to the google maps for it). 2) Ability to add reminders for flares. 3) Countdown timer to a flare occuring.

no va
it dosent work. i have been trying to connect for two months. it wont work. it cant find me. i wonder how it can find a satellite. i want it to work. i am very excited about the idea. i am waiting for the server to locate me. i turn it on and wait for 10 minutes for it to connect to no avail. i will keep trying. for now there is only one star in this galaxy.
