Updated version is fantastic
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..
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.
Problem after last update
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.
