What's new in this version (1.9.8):
Broke the notifications on the last update. Now they're fixed.
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!
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.

Cant download flares, mismatched tag. Waste of money. Could be a gt app.

Nice app but won't update database through mobile data network. Has to be WiFi, which isn't practical when out observing.
A rather disappointing app that has a nice map feature but refuses to include iss or other satellite passes.
I have a new hobby. Might there be a widget some day?
"Iridium flare forecast" is free AND displays ISS fly bys. Why cant this one? Good app tho as it can "alarm" you of flares
Nexus one Froyo. I only wish the alarms could trigger a calendar item instead.
Mapmaker: you of all people should know that that is NOT a map of where the flare will be, it shows the path that the reflection takes. Your own fault
Allot of force closes on Incredible when gps is off. Map of flare showed east of my location tonight AX was west. I missed it. A -7.
Getting error: "Could not get the flares. At line 1, column 199, tag mismatch"
Works great on the HTC Incredible. I love the alarm feature.
