It does it's job well
If you're trying to see an iridium flare, you will with this app. It works great. The user interface could use a little work, but the functionality is perfect. Dev: I would like the "notify me" button to be located right below the "show device orientation" button. I would also like the notification to go off 5 minutes before instead of 10 minutes before. Thanks!
By far the best satillite tracking app! Usually very accurate. I have turned several friends on to it which has really peaked the interest of their grade school level kids! Keep up the good work!
Simple and easy to use.
It has proven to be very accurate and is fun to use with my 6 year old daughter. Great family time.
