The app has been designed in co-operation with several travel companies in Lapland and has been operating now for 2 aurora seasons. Last season the service sent 594 aurora alerts throughout Finnish Lapland.
When the phone receives an alert, you will see the strength of the northern lights, also the exact date and time when an alert was sent. App has also its own alert sound which cannot be missed.
In android, you can decide if the phone alerts even when the phone is in silent mode. Just like alarm clock.
The app has a 6 hour aurora activity & weather forecast so you can be prepared when there is high solar activity going on. However, northern lights still make sudden appearings even when there is low activity at the moment.
