Got this for a trip to Iceland in December 2017. Not being a professional photographer, I wanted an easy app to get a decent photo. Bought this app and another and only ended up using this one. People kept coming up to us and asking how we were getting the northern lights to show up using our camera on our phone. The photos aren’t perfect, they’re a little grainy but they’re so much better than nothing and so much better than I was expecting. I don’t think you’ll find a better app for this. I would HIGHLY recommend buying this app. Best app I’ve ever gotten! Thank you!

Used this app to capture images of the Northern Lights on a particularly high visibility night. Used a tripod and a remote to take pics so as not to have to touch the phone very much. As long as everything stayed still, the pictures came out quite good. Clearly they are not DSLR or professional-level images and won’t win any photography awards for Northern Lights pictures, but they are MUCH MUCH MUCH better than you’d get from just using your iPhone camera (which I tried, and simply got black).

Very good, 1 or 2 changes...

Best .99 I’ve spent. Photos came out a bit grainy but that was somewhat expected. My iPhone camera couldn’t pick up anything at all and this app let me photograph the lights in Iceland. It sets up an extended exposure so you need to lean against something to hold still(ish) or consider getting a tripod setup. It only worked on the weak setting for me, even when they seemed bright. Only thing that would make this better is if it allowed a video feature since my phone camera/video couldn’t pick them up enough to show the lights dancing all over the sky.

This app definitely works if you see good Aurora! We saw them two nights in a row in Reykjavík and the first night they were very weak and I didn’t get any good pictures but the second night they were better and I got GREAT pictures! So it somewhat depends on the strength of the natural phenomenon. I used the weak setting. Pics are slightly blurry without a tripod but amazing when you consider its through an iPhone. Most people with us didn’t get pics and I had two strangers ask me to email them my pics because they were so good!!

I have a GoPro 3+ and was sad to learn it doesn't have a night mode (which supposedly takes good Aurora pics according to my tour guide). I was googling and came across someone who said this app worked, I figured $.99 was worth a shot for a once in a lifetime opportunity. And sure enough, jury rigged my GoPro tripod to hold my phone and voila, good (a little grainy but hey it's an iPhone camera not a DSLR) pictures of a very weak light. 5/5 because it turned an iPhone camera with no settings into one that can take pics of the northern lights with the push of a button

This app only does one thing and that's to help you take better photos of the aurora borealis, aka the northern lights.

Here's the scenario - so you

see the northern lights (!! - awesome for you, by the way), but you don't have a fancy digital camera with you. Thankfully, you have your trusty iPhone or iPad!

OK! Now what??

Do you know the tips and tricks to take photos of the northern lights ? Great, if you do! Enable manual mode; set the focus to infinity; change the temperature to a certain number; change the ISO between certain values; change the shutter speed to something else....wait what...?

Don't worry, this app does all of that for you so all you have to do is find those lights. ISO, shutter speed, long exposure mode, temperature, check check check. There are 3 presets that you can choose from based on the brightness of the aurora lights that you're seeing. Those don't work? Try out custom mode until you get that 'good-enough-for-me-to-show-to-my-friends' snap and take as many photos as you'd like!

Worth a shot ! (hah..a...was funny when this was typed...)
