Nice, this surely makes easier to enjoy flares!
This is nice and works well. Easier than going to the Iridium Flare site by the normal web browser. There are several features in my mind that would make this app even nicer: #1 Alarm (N minutes before the flare where N is configurable) #2 Showing the direction to the center, or the location of the center on the map #3 Night vision mode #4 Showing the direction to the flare relative to the actual direction (utilizing the compass) Keep up good work!

Iridium Flares
A great app in initial concept and implementation. Works well as currently designed. As others have mentioned, a few upgraded features would make it a 5-star app: - Night vision mode - An editable menu of observing sites (similar to ISS Passes) that can be selected and data updated before heading out to selected observing site - currently have to punch in lat/long each time desired site is not current location. Most dark sites don't have cell or wifi coverage. - Countdown timer or selectable alarm for selected flares. With above features it would probably be worth more than 99 cents to me.

Great App!
Totally worth the .99 cents! Works great! The kids and I frequently keep an eye out for these totally cool flares. Wait until you see one of the really bright ones -- amazing! Accurate to the second, and fun to show friends the flares. A cool option or two for the future use would be ability to type zip code or pick your location from a map. Being able to predict ISS passes would be handy, and maybe text message or beep on the phone 10 mins before a pass. Thanks for the cool app!!

It works
It works but is a little to simple. I would like to see a countdown or even a decent way to refresh it without going into the settings.
