What's New in Version 3.2
Currently the sky view motion control is not working properly with the new iPhone 6s and 6s plus. This will be fixed with the next update. In the mean time motion control can be turned off in the preferences for manual control.
A recent review incorrectly states that the location is always tracked the background. Location is only used when the app is first started to correctly set the sky view and is then turned off to save power. Due to recent iOS security changes any app not updated for iOS 8 or later will default to showing location "Always" even if it is not always used.
The only Satellite tracking application you'll need!
GoSatWatch is easy to use. If you need a way to track any man made object in space GoSatWatch is hands down the only app you'll need. The only down side to this app is finding enough time to watch the sky to see all the objects it will steer you to. You will be amazed at the amount of man made objects overhead . It's a blast to look at what's visible to see using the app and looking up and see it go by, it never gets old.
Now, what's a good reason to purchase this app? There are a couple of them. First, the Space Shuttle isn't going to be flying for very much longer, so it can be fun and instructive to yourself and your family to see it fly overhead as a bright dot in the night sky. You'll have your chance to see it and the Hubble Space Telescope during the upcoming Hubble Servicing Mission.
Second, it's the International Year of Astronomy. Watching the night skies in all of their glory is fun to do whether you're using GoSatWatch to check out man-made objects or another app like SkyWalk to see the natural objects.
As the nights get warmer (for those of us in the northern hemisphere), be sure to get out your iPhone and see what's above you. You might be surprised! Take a look at the gallery to see screenshots of some of the GoSatWatch features.
My favorite satellite app!!
This app by far is my most used satellite locator app that I have! I have other popular apps like this and it is true that each have different features that make each one unique but this one is easy to use and most all my information I want is right there but one update that for me would make this app the only satellite locator app I need is to have a way to see information about the object I'm looking at like what it is used for and launch date and all that. The recent irridium flare update is just awesome!!! The satellite brightens just when it says it does! This company has another app that I love and both are on my home screen on my iphone because I use them all the time! Thanks for giving us this tool that has given us so much enjoyment!!
Great Features for a iPhone App
Decided to get back into working the amateur radio satellites and needed a portable satellite tracking app. Although it seems designed for watching satellites, it looks like it will work very well for radio coms through the amateur sats with accurate pass predictions. The "Sky" view tab is a compass with a projection of the sky where you are pointing the phone. An icon of the satellite shows where in the sky you should be looking. Pretty impressive. I used it to find the ISS on my first try. Haven't configured my radios for satellites yet, but I think it will work well.
