Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Also check out the new DishPointer AR Pro app, which lets you see where the satellites are on the live camera screen.
DishPointer Maps is the most advanced satellite finder which lets you actually see where to point your dish before going on site by showing you a Google Maps satellite image of your location and an alignment line to the satellite.
Just pick a landmark along the alignment line and point your dish in that direction.
DishPointer Maps is being used by almost every TV network station around the world for their satellite uplink trucks and by thousands of professional satellite installers.
Quote: "As a cameraman for several networks, this app has become an invaluable tool for getting quick uplink time." (glenngreg)

Can't believe there is no reviews for this app! This is a very great mobile app for satellite location. Absolutely love it!! When in doubt, this is a great app when no computer is around! I use it all the time for actual jobs. Great job DishPointer!
Terrible app useless!
While I am thankful for this companies web site. This app is useless, you cannot enter what type of satellite system you have, so the settings it gives are incorrect for my hd Directv system at the campgrounds. I deleted the app from my phone very disappointing wish I could get my money back.
I use this app every day, but...
...It's not ready for the iPhone 5/5C/5S. Nice for figuring out Azimuth and Elevation for pretty much any satellite, but fails to take advantage of the larger screen size of the newer iDevices. An update for this app is needed!
