Well... This was a waste.
The program does nothing but tell me: Error Connecting The website is currently unreachable. No clue about what website, no hints about why it's unreachable (since I'm entering this, obviously I have network access) just endless repetitions of the error message. I installed the app last night at the Peach State Star Gaze in Georgia in hopes of catching a flare or two. The only thing the app has told me is "Error Connecting" for the last 12 hours. Using an iPad 2 with IOS 6.

Fantastic iPad ap. Everything you need to know right in front of you, simple to use, easy to read, and good screen graphics too!

No Current Location?
This is totally useless since it does not use your current location. You have to manually enter your Latitude and Longitude which is absurd. It won't even give you the coordinates of your current location. I can't believe they are selling it like this.

Great app, have a couple feature requests
This app is excellent and does what it's supposed to do. It tells me when a flare is, where to look for it, and where to be to get the best view. My feature requests are these: I would love to be able to save more than one location in the app. Because it would be sweet to be able to tell my friend across the country when and where she should look outside to see a flare. It would also be really nice if the flare's path could be displayed indefinitely in each direction on the map, and not just the immediate proximity around the point of closest approach to me. That would make it easier to plan where to go to get the best view. Otherwise, great job! :-)

Good excuse to go outside and LOTS of fun!
I have used this app for a couple of years now and I love it. It couldn't be easier to see find a visible flare with a compass on the display pointing the direction and the angle to look up displayed makes finding flares easy! It's fun to show and educate children with it, it's a good way to get kids interested in the sky even if they live in an urban area. It's can be fun to be in a group of people and "have a feeling" that something is going to happen in the sky and have friends look in the right direction as it happens, explain it away as magic. ;)

Great app, great fun
I've used this app many times to spot flares and it's always been spot on. With the countdown timer and built in compass it's a breeze to pop out and catch a flare even on a cold winter night. My one item to add to the wish list would be to add a direction of orbit marker. Even though you get to know most of the satellites and their orbits after many viewings, it would still be handy and currently available from the same site used for time and location. Thanks for app, easy recommendation for me.
