When the recent UARS satellite de-orbited, many enthusiasts relied on popular satellite tracking websites for information.
Unfortunately, these sites couldn't keep up and so most were left in the dark until well after news reports started to come through.
Our unique service consists of distributed, high-speed servers that can feed millions of small updates to iPhones/iPads without choking.
Our Phobos-Grunt Tracking HQ manually monitors multiple sources, including US Military tracking feeds to estimate the reentry time with increasing accuracy as the time approaches.
Every time the estimate changes, we feed it to the Phobos-Grunt Reentry App so you'll know when to LOOK UP!!!!
Very specialized app for some space fun
Pretty good specialized app for the countdown of the crash of Phobos-grunt. Has a nice friendly clock screen, a news feed with some good graphs and plots. Active twitter stream with updates as well. I chose to buy the app not because I needed it but to support people providing detailed info about a very interesting event.
Nice looking app, but no updates yet. Getting close folks, any news?
