Iridium Flares v1.2 |
Did you ever want to see a falling star but don't want to sit outside all night waiting to see one?
The next best thing is watching Iridium Flares. The advantage of them is that you can know the exact time and place when they're about to happen. The big difference is that you're watching an Iridium (a satellite) that's reflecting sunlight, instead of a falling star.

This application lists the Iridium Flares that are visible on your location for the next 7 days. The only necessary thing to see them is a clear sky.

- List of Iridium Flares for the next 7 days
- Shows the date and time, the direction, altitude and intensity of the Iridium Flare
- Uses GPS to know your location, or you can enter your location manually
- Shows your last loaded Iridium Flares when offline.

When selecting your timezone: Daylight saving time has been accounted for.

What's new in Version 1.2
Faster startup
Bugfix for sometimes not loading data with GPRS connection
General user interface improvements

Requirement: Compatible with iPhone and iPod touch. Requires iPhone OS 2.2 or later.
