My Aurora Forecast is the best app for seeing the Northern Lights. Built with a sleek dark design, it appeals to both tourists and serious aurora watchers by telling you what you want to know - whether that is exactly how likely you are to see the aurora borealis or details about the solar winds and high-resolution sun imagery. With this app, you'll be seeing the Northern Lights in no time. - Find the current KP index and how likely you are to see the Northern Lights in the United States or the rest of the world. - View a list of the best locations to view from right now. - Map showing how strong the aurora is around the world, based on the SWPC ovation auroral forecast. - Free push notifications when auroral activity is expected to be high. - Forecasts for the next hour, several hours and several weeks so you can plan your Northern Lights viewing long in advance (subject to weather conditions). - Solar wind statistics and sun imagery. - Tour information so if you're considering to go to locations such as Iceland, Sweden, Finland or even Alaska or Canada, you'll be able to find tours that we can recommend to you. - Support for the latest iPhone and iPad (including split view). - Completely free of charge for all functionality, no in-app purchases. If you want the latest updates on geomagnetic activity and enjoy viewing the aurora borealis, this app is right for you. This version is ad-supported and is similar to other apps such as Aurora Forecast., AuroraWatch UK and Aurorasaurus.
This app has just been disappointing for me. I read good reviews about it online and decided to download it. However, all it has done is given me false hope. I can’t tell you how many times I receive notifications that the KP index is “becoming high” but when I look at the map, it is clear that there is no chance of seeing the northern lights based on my location. I wouldn’t put all of your eggs in one basket with this app and would recommend exploring multiple resources.
Love the updates as well as time/percentage of an event happening.

The Aurora app is a fun, informative offering that allows those lacking the meteorology gene easily to keep a finger on the pulse of the northern night skies. It’s great shortcoming, however, is that it operates almost totally in the “now.” For example at mid-day in my locale it is not surprising to learn that there is no possibility whatsoever of enjoying the northern lights. (I don’t need an app to tell me that!). What would be most useful would be if it Aurora projected into the future, so that it might give me some idea at noon as to whether a later, 3:00 a.m. trek into the back yard might be fruitful.
I clicked on an ad within the app by mistake. It asked me to change some settings. I take my phones security and my privacy fairly seriously. I would much prefer a paid version. Update. Turns out there is a paid version. I would have liked a link to the paid version available in the free version. If there was one I couldn’t find it. My Aurora Pro $1.99. Worth it not to have the ads, cause I do like the app.
Ty I enjoy this and it helps when notified
I used his app pretty extensively during my recent visit to Iceland and successfully saw the Lights on two nights. I enjoyed referencing it as part of my hunting strategy. My only complaint, and why I gave 4 stars instead of 5, is the lack of instruction/explanation offered through the program. I conducted my own search to understand what I was reading. I would use again if the opportunity arose to see the Aurora.
I uninstalled this app in less than 2 minutes. I totally understand you need ad revenue and for many apps I use regularly I will purchase the ad free versions. This app had such a horribly distracting ad at the bottom I couldn’t even get thru putting a location in and looking around before I decided to delete it. Plenty of free info on web and other apps that are not so obnoxious. Zero stars!
Great stuff for checking sky colors
Loved this app while on an aurora hunting trip to Alaska. The map, the one hour forecast and the multi day forecast were all amazingly accurate.
