iOS 12 Bug fix
Ratings and Reviews
Simple and free.. my neighbors like it too. If you want ISS, sign up on
the nasa site, Spot the Station.
Its been fixed
I gave 1 star and a review that said the app crashes whenever I open it with iOS 12. Well, they fixed the problem a week later so I’m upgrading the rating.
Thank you, thank you, for updating the app! My kids and I have gotten a lot of enjoyment from this!
