- Minor bug fixes for the Apple Watch companion app.
Practical rocket science
It's so enjoyable to see orbital mechanics put in such a practical and friendly application. Sputnik can guide you in one evening to see multiple passes of the International Space Station and personally experience the time element of orbiting the earth every 92 minutes in ISS along with the crew and also observe an Iridium communications satellite streak across the sky in its polar orbit.
I look forward to Sputnik adding additional satellite observation alerts and trajectory graphics in the future.
Outstanding app. A reminder of success produced by the free market we enjoy in the US.
Works great! I use it often!
