Hard to work for satellite tv setup I tried this to align my directv. No instructions at all. Don't get me wrong, it's pretty cool. But you need to be a prof and familiar with how to handle a phone as a compass. At one point I was tilting the phone up and down and it was showing a movement left to right. Made no sense and I'm pretty good at figuring things out. Getting the satellite tilt up and down is the hard part. Left and right is easy. Point it south and move it an inch at a time until you start to get signal on the signal screen.
Doesn't seem to work I'm sure this is a great app if it works, but on my Galaxy SII it just tries to load the menu, then goes into demo mode and shows only 1 Satellite. Tried with 3G and Wifi numerous times, confirmed working internet connection. Link to developers page from Market doesn't work either.
Nice concept but bizarre interface (appears to be a bug) This app has an interesting concept: Visualize satellites on a live camera overlay. Unfortunately, it thinks my Nexus 5 is a tablet and renders two columns of impossible to click options (unlike the screenshot above). I'll certainly be able to give a better rating once I'm able to effectively use it.
Keep looking up! I have had this FREE, ad FREE, almost data usage FREE, app installed on everything I've had for many years flawlessly, from eclair to jellybean. It functions great with a short learning curve. I recommend this app for anyone that looks at the night sky and wonders what that little dot is moving across the sky. Potentially visible and ISS are the best. Right now I'm trying to find a geostationary sat with my telescope. Only 1 thing I would + is coordinates, heading, and speed info at the touch of the screen.
Does not work with Samsung Droid Charge (SCH-I510) This application DOES NOT work on the Droid Charge. I tried endlessly to connect on both 4G, 3G and on WIFI and all I get is a message stating "This program is operating in off-line mode. For best results, connect to the network and reload this menu. I even tried to reinstall it twice." No go!!
Old AT better This use to be a useful app, when it showed see list of satellites and dispossess accurate look angles based on your gps location. Now it is nothing more than a cheesy star map. Can you please bring back this functionally for us antenna installers?
* Phobos-Grunt, Dish, DirecTV, and Astra added to main menu. This was a server-side change only.
* Added a yellow arrow when satellites are off-screen
* Added a new setting to disable calibration warnings
