  • Great app.

    By Red Chile
    The app is awsome! Buy it!
  • Clear Cache?

    By Otzen42
    Good app. Notifications seem a bit inconsistent on latest version. Any way to clear the Cache? Some of the Iridium Next satellites got loaded with temp names because I checked the app right after launch. Can’t seem to get it to update with the final vehicle numbers.
  • Keps not updating!

    By Oilologist
    Since installing iOS 11, the app doesn’t fully load and it appears that the Keps aren’t updating 😕 Help!!!
  • Why don't you look up sometime?

    By TechHead
    I've been using an app like this since the Palm Pilot days, and grabbed this app years ago when it first hit the App Store. The dev has been great in keeping it updated and adding features. It's super easy to use and contains a lot of detailed information. No one looks up anymore :( We're all staring down at our devices, but missing a great show up above. I'm lucky enough to still have a dark sky, and whenever I show off this app to people they totally love it! Seeing a long bright pass of the ISS is a real treat and many people had no idea you see this on a routine basis.
  • Problem after last update

    By BluegrassState
    The latest update stays stuck on "CALCULATING" and won't give me any passes. I laid my phone down and walked away for 10 minutes and still no data. The sister app GoISSWatch is similarly setup and I love it.
  • Updated version is fantastic

    By Svenry
    It's been a long wait, but this updated version has eliminated old issues and added a number of new, informative features and improvements. To my knowledge, this is the most capable and well-designed satellite tracking app available. Over the past few years, this app has helped me view and photograph hundreds of satellite passes (ISS, Chinese space station, manned & unmanned spacecraft, Hubble telescope, etc.) and Iridium flares from a multitude of geographical locations. It's also a fantastic tool for visualizing and understanding all types of satellite orbits. This is an unbelievably handy app. [It sounds like the user who claimed to have an issue with notifications may have just needed to change their settings within the app :) I've experienced no problems thus far. I'm using an iPhone 5S]
  • New release has a problem..

    By DGatzby
    Folks better look at the notifications part. I looked at the app, looked at some passes and closed the app. Next day starting at about 4am I began to not get one but many alarms. I had to bring up the app, turn off all notifications, shut down the phone. Then went back to sleep. Please fix this.
  • Good program, would be great if:

    By The Original Spoo
    (1) Notifications had more control, for example the ability to add to calendar / reminders with entry automatically grabbing time of pass. (2) notification had the ability to send SMS or other notification that doesn't disappear (3) notification could send multiple reminders such as at T minus 10 mins. Then 5 minutes, then at time of pass. (4) the program doesn't continuously require the compass to calibrate.
  • My favorite app for sat passes

    By Mark H-L
    This works well to predict satellite passes. Other apps have some good functionality, but I like the list of passes and the alerts from this app. The default list of satellites is a little longer than in other apps. I had some minor bugs; the developer was responsive and helpful
  • Eats battery by tracking when not using

    By MizMM
    App requires ALWAYS setting on when your location is tracked. Eats up battery by constantly tracking you even when you aren't using it. Privacy concerns for that reason as well. Can't give highest rating to app until they only get location in the "while using" setting.
