This app is intended to be used as a standalone display, perhaps supporting an exhibition related to the International Space Station or Space Hardware.
It consists of a single screen, which displays the current location of the ISS. The location is calculated in real-time, with orbital elements updated over the internet hourly. Internet access is required to read the orbital elements, and to display the moving map.
The app will use its current location to calculate and display potential satellite observation times, so Location Services must be enabled.
Please contact Craic Design directly to have a bespoke museum-quality version of this app created for your exhibition.
What's New in Version 1.1
Updated graphics and launch screen
Completely unreliable. Doesn't even provide a TLE source.
ISS lost in space!! Xapp cannot find it!
John, please fix this! Anyone interested in where the ISS is, won't be able to find it!
Your app shows it a half world off-- and there seems to be no way of changing the observer's location, either!
I'm using iOS 8 on an iPad.
