Iridium Flares Pro

Iridium Flares Pro


Find out when and where to look in the sky to see brief bright flashes from Iridium satellites seen as the satellites move across the sky. Works in any country!

FEATURES
Best viewing spots shown on map.
Automatic notification five minutes before each flare.
When open, the app vibrates for the ten seconds before the flare.

Note, the map with the flare centers and lines is broken and I doubt I'll fix it anytime soon. The list of flares and the data you see on the map page are accurate though, so you can use those to spot flares.

Unfortunally it doesn't show daytime flares.

Nice map feature and not too buggy. Alarms work pretty well.

Pesky notification App works OK. But I keep getting a pesky "location not set" notification every day even though my location has been (repeatedly) set up in the settings. Not cool.

Does not work. What did I pay for? App does not download the data that u pay for. I should get a refund and this app should be taken down!

Used to be great ... But now I cannot download any information. I see the next most recent comment was 8 months ago, perhaps the app is no longer being supported?

Never spot a flare. I'm not an idiot, I understand azimuth, 0 north, 90 east, 180 south... Etc. and altitude, an outstretched fist is roughly 10 degrees, so guestimating where I should be looking isn't hard, and a light that's mag. -5 to -8 appearing even close to the region shouldn't be hard to spot... Unless I'm doing something wrong... If so, I'll be more than happy to re-rate the app.
