Scope Nights Astronomy Weather for Negative User Reviews

Potentially Excellent - Seems GlitchyIt is possibly a quirk of the iPhone X, but when I run this app it seems to populate my Scope Sites list with the exact same site 20 or so times no matter how many times I delete them. When I then try to add a site I want on my list it tells me the list is full and I have to delete one before I can add any more. Because of this, I can’t look at the weather for the actual places I want to go to, just have to look at the nearest on on my list and hope. Am I doing something wrong or is it a latest version of IOS issue?? Please help, I love the functionality but this issue is killing my enthusiasm for the otherwise great app!.Version: 2.5.1

Has the developer abandoned this app?Has the developer abandoned this app? The promised fixes for the weather data access errors that were promised years ago have never materialized. Now the app won’t fit into Apple iPad screens without clipping heavily at the edges, so it looks like there haven’t been updates in a very long time..Version: 2.5.1

Dark Sky Paid Upgrade DissapointingApp seems useful for general astronomy forecasts, but it wasn't made obvious that the Dark Sky feature was a $7 paid upgrade. Doesn't seem worth it..Version: 2.1

Broken Weather LookipBeen using the app for months and it was great. Now any location outside the US is broken and won’t load. Tried several in Canada, none work. Uninstalled and reinstalled. Tried a US loacation and it worked no problem..Version: 2.5.1

Unable to download data about my locationNot much use if it can’t download info on where I am . Algonquin provincial park Ontario Canada.Version: 2.5.1

Time to get the issues sorted outUsed to use this as my goto clear sky forecast, then the ‘unable to get global forecast’ messages started. There’s a good explanation by the developer about why it’s happened, but it’s about time it was sorted. There’s no easier way to alienate your user base than by not providing regular updates, even if it’s just a “sorry, I’m still working on it, this is what’s happening” message. I’m sorry to say this app is getting VERY close to being deleted now, which is a shame..Version: 2.5.1

Doesn’t workI paid for this app to essentially give me my weather forecast...except now it doesn’t even do that. It says global forecast unavailable, which is ok. The weather network has free forecast information. They don’t even bundle astronomical seeing into the report. Not worth money..Version: 2.5.1

Updated but still doesn’t workUsed to be good but now fails to provide any forecasts. I’m sure the new update actually delivered a better user experience to someone somewhere.Version: 2.5.1

No more updates?I love this app but the message pop ups due to a forecast update not working are annoying. Is there no plan to continue development to this? Could it be open sourced to allow others to fix it?.Version: 2.5.1

Doesn’t view properly on my iPadFrom the first time I tried to use this app, it did not display properly on my iPad. Also, there appears to be a problem that prevents global forecasts from downloading properly. This app is not worth $4.99. I would not even advise downloading it if it were free. Save your money. BTW, I would like a refund, please..Version: 2.5.1

Needs workI use an app called “Good To Stargaze”, which is free, and for a nominal fee allows one to save 5 sites. That app is very succinct and intuitive in its forecasts and presentation. Scope Nights offers much of the same information, and has a more colorful interface, and it has some basic stability issues. When connecting to the Internet to get weather information, the app can hang. When the connection times out, it sometimes crashes out to the “Finder”. I like that you can look up known dark sky sites and observatories, and add - evidently - dozens of custom sites. However, when the app is new, it seems to store every map position you navigate to, and your current location is stored dozens of times, and you cannot add new sites because the max number has been reached. I manually deleted all of these sites, which took several minutes (needs a delete all interface), and afterward it worked as expected. Not recommended over Good To Stargaze, and it does mostly work, but has the drawbacks mentioned above..Version: 2.5.1

UselessWhen you buy an app, you think that the important features are included. But not this one. You buy the app, then it's useless unless you buy each feature separately..Version: 2.1

The best and the only app you will need, but not anymoreI've been using this app since long time. It's was one of the best, and very accurate information about the weather forecast. I always rely on this application before setting up my telescope. However now it no longer works since months, and no any new news. Looks this application is dead..Version: 2.5.1

App is deadPurchased this app expecting a great weather app. Unfortunately it no longer works, only provides a weeks weather which is no good as we know weather changes. The developers Facebook page informs customers of this issue and that was a posted a year ago with no change. There is no information on the App Store and If you purchase this app and want your money back apple won’t give it back. Had to put a claim in through PayPal which I won..Version: 2.5.1

Used to be a Fantastic astronomy app!Latest update hasn’t helped. Still No longer works after latest iOS update. Please fix guys! The developer doesn’t respond to emails either. Pull the app if you have no intention of updating it..Version: 2.5.1

A1 +++Fantastic app has never let me down..Version: 2.5.1

No longer works.Used this app for years, I thought it was fantastic. However, over the last few iOS updates it has stopped working. Always gives me the ai “local forecast unavailable”. Too bad, really..Version: 2.5.1

No longer load weather dataUsed to work great, now it just errors every time I open the app and doesn’t load weather data. Completely deleted and reloaded the app and the same thing happens. Save your money..Version: 2.5.1

3 years without an updateThis was my first goto weather app. Unfortunately, no updates in 3 years and the errors on startup “no global forecast available “ still come out. It still works but can’t recommend it to new buyers unless there is more support, updates forthcoming..Version: 2.5.1

WAS greatForecast no longer works for Edmonton, Alberta, Canada..Version: 2.1

It was good….Seems to have partially stopped working! I’ve used it for years and it was reliable, but now with my iPhone XS it sticks. Showing the weather for last Monday and today is Wednesday. No longer sure it’s reliable, which is a shame..Version: 2.5.1

Accurate?Sometimes I’m out on a lovely clear night and it’ll tell me the conditions are ‘poor’, then when it’s pouring with rain it says the conditions are good. Hard to trust it..Version: 2.5.1

Dead app - that used to be good..This was the only app I used to use to check the conditions before planning to get my kit out. It now just gives me an error message when trying to look at the weather conditions for my area. Looking at other reviews over the last 12 months, it seems this is not an isolated issue. The app appears to be dead now and I will be looking for another. Developers - please can you give an update on this? The app appears to be available on the App Store still so presumably people could still be purchasing it when it appears that it is no longer supported..Version: 2.5.1

Need to do your homework.This app only gets it 50% right..Version: 2.4

Apps stopped workingLoved this app but early March 2021 it doesn’t work????.Version: 2.5.1

Seems no fix in sight for some usersI loved this app when I first downloaded it but, since the app developer has not updated the app to download all global weather forecasts, I can’t recommend this app for everyone. In Japan, all of my locations give an error that the information can’t be downloaded. If in the future this issue is resolved, I might reconsider using the app again, but as of now I can’t. In all honesty, I would like a refund for the app, but I doubt that will happen..Version: 2.5.1

It’s buggy. Save your moneyI was really rooting for this app. But it’s so buggy it’s almost useless. When u add one site, it adds it three or four or ten and keeps growing over time. So after 2 sites you’re full. Within a day the takes long to load. It has created itself with so many duplicates. Managing sites doesn’t do anything when u delete the duplicates so you’re left with having to uninstall and start all over again..Version: 2.5.1

Slow and error messagesI am using this with an iPhone 11, and it is very slow. I also error messages every time I open it. Other Astro weather work great on my phone. Waste of money..Version: 2.5.1

Sites are a pain to deleteThe program randomly fills up the site list with everything you click on. Then the sites take forever to delete. Why would it allow you to add the same site more than once? Also, why not have a “clear all” for the sites? It’s a bit frustrating that for the cost, it’s not a bit more functional..Version: 2.5.1

Won’t upload for my area? For months now!Haven’t been able to use it since I purchased. Won’t get a response to my email either. Really bad service and disappointing that I paid for this app..Version: 2.5.1

DisappointingGot this app because it looked promising. But after using it am disappointed. After finding a club observing site it would not let me name it. It would give a generic place name. There are other apps that are more user friendly. Wish they had a demo app that way you can save your self some money..Version: 2.5.1

Used to be excellent butHasn’t been able to give my results for my local location anymore. Gives one for a location 4 miles away. Cannot reply on it at all now. Shame, it used to be excellent. Not worth paying for now.Version: 2.5.1

Great app in need of some bug fixesI love this app, but every time I go into it, it gives me an error that the forecast for my site is unavailable. Lately I am getting the same error 2 or 3 times and each error must be clicked to make it go away. Regardless of the errors it actually does still provide an updated forecast. If this could be fixed then the app would be perfect..Version: 2.5.1

This App Is BrokenI constantly receive dozens of pop up notifications stating “Scope Nights Global Forecast Unavailable For….” basics every location that I have searched. Literally every time I open the app, I have to clear a dozen or so notifications..Version: 2.5.1

ProblematicRunning the App off IPhone 8+, had to delete the app several times as it wouldn’t load up properly. After eventually getting it up and running it seems to duplicate scope sites on the scope nights main page. Added 4 scope sites and have now 8 sets of data and this duplication seems to grow after a couple days. Would only allow me to add 4 scope sites and then tells me I’ve reached my maximum number of scope sites...Think there needs to be a major update since the last one 2 yrs ago..Version: 2.5.1

Such a shameDoesn’t work anymore, used to be my go to regarding weather for astro however after many many months now with no response from developer who knows if it will ever be fixed..Version: 2.5.1

Not helpful for my locationI work at a dark sky park and love to recommend apps. We do sky tours weekly and I use about 6 locations for weather data. Sky and telescope recommended the app so I bought it. None of the towns within a 40 mile radius are locations that will give me data. I was able to find my park listed on the location finder but our data is “unable to access”.Version: 2.5.1

Useful but always changing!I know it’s never easy predicting the weather, and in the UK especially. But I find it frustrating that it often changes (almost in realtime) and I can’t plan much. I also can’t just drop what I’m doing so planning is kind of key in my day to day..Version: 2.5.1

Save your moneyMuch better apps and websites available, most at no charge. This app doesn’t display much data and appears to not be very accurate and charges for the privilege..Version: 2.5.1

Lack of Updates - app left to die.Was an excellent app, clear to read and generally accurate enough to plan actual astronomy sessions. However after multiple iOS updates it seems that this app no longer functions - which is a shame. Hopefully the dev takes an interest in this app again at some point, but after two years, I would presume the chance is slim..Version: 2.5.1

Total rubbish nowThis software used to work. Now it does not work at all! The developer acknowledges that there has been an issue but it is not fixed and their explanation that you should still get uk/us weather is wrong, you cannot! Was four star, now no star. Also the ‘support’ page is impenetrable if you want to contact the developer.Version: 2.5.1

Has stopped downloading global forecastsThis has been my go to app for quite a while. There isn’t an app around that is 100% accurate, and this is no exception, it once you are within a few hours of your planned observing time it is usually good. However just recently it has stopped downloading global forecasts and only gives forecasts for 5 days ahead when it used to be around twice that. Disappointingly I’m not getting any response from their support either..Version: 2.5.1

Stopped workingThis app worked well and then stopped working at all in my area. White to their email address but no answer.Version: 2.5.1

Doesnt workPaid for this app and no weather as it used to do for my area..Version: 2.5.1

ErrorsGreat app and the best presentation of night sky weather. At the moment though the app generates a weather unavailable error for everyone of my saved locations. No fix appears to be available. Will revise score when fixed.Version: 2.5.1

Buggy with IOS11As above....Version: 2.4
