Ratings and Reviews
Please add Apple Watch app
Needs Apple Watch app and iOS 10 support.
Needs to utilize built in compass, accelerometer, and GPS.
Not easy to switch viewing modes. Needs a button instead of having to rotate iPhone.
Needs to show more info on each satellite. Such as uplink and downlink frequencies for ham radio satellites.
Should have option to show daylight and night areas on map.
Needs to be able to switch between 12 & 24 hour clock modes.
Not easy to tell when a satellite will next be passing my location.
Needs to utilize accelerometer for augmented reality view.
Up in the air on this one!
There are times when I think this is a brilliant app; other times when I'm baffled by how it operates!
It is great at showing where satellites are relative to the globe-- and the time slider lets us see and show others how the position changes over time. Nice!
Big issue, though! For some reason, it no longer shows orbital traces for satellites! That's a downer. The rotate to change view function is hidden--just discovered it after months of using the app. There really needs to be an on screen icon for that We keep our iPad's rotation locked. As others have pointed out, the interface is convoluted, though one gets used to it. The addition of ads, however, is a real irritant! If you go off line, though, they seem to vanish.
Key point, however, this is an incredible app being free!! Even paid apps don't provide as much and many have weird oddities, too!
Apple: the developer's web site seems no longer in play, while the support site doesn't load! PxSat please fix that and orbital traces. Thanks!
New release is perfect

Finally, app was updated and works perfectly on my iPhone 6+. Now, I can give it the same review as I would have pre-iPhone 6 and iOS 8. Love it.
Below was review from December 12, 2014 that caused a 2 star review
I used to use this app all the time. Now that I upgraded to iPhone 6+, the maps do not display. You get tracks snd satellites but no map.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
