Dish Pointer Pro on Samsung S4 I work at a Satellite Earth Station in Ireland and use Dish Pointer Pro to 'see' the Geostationary Arc. It is a very useful aid to my work. I recently upgraded my mobile phone to Samsung S4, and the extra shipped S-View cover caused the app to not work correctly. Please be advised that this cover interferes with the phone's compass. It would be best to use the normal plastic cover that comes attached to the rear of the phone by the manufacturer, when using the Dish Pointer Pro App. I have found the Dish Pointer App to be the best of its kind and I recommend it highly.

Not worth $20 I have been in the satellite business for 17 yrs now. Every other time I use, it won't work like should. I have to delete app then reinstall again. They would sell this much easier at $5-$10. It's definitely not worth $20. Does not have a few dish net current satellites. Will not let me update satellites in list. HTC one max
DishPointer Pro I tried several "free" apps before buying this one. Definitely worth it. DishPointer is very simple to use. Check just the satellites you want to see and the app saves them so you don't have to scroll thru hundreds of satellites to find the one(s) you want each time you run the app. Huge when setting up a dish - its time consuming enough! Highly recommend!
Dishpointer Pro on Android Recommended to me by professional installer. It works great. Ran on Motorola Droid Razr M. Allowed me to see clearly and instantly that i did have clear line of site between the trees to 3 DirecTV satellites. Also great customer service. Alan responds to questions right away.
Not the same info as on the web site. I bought a tailgater set up to use RVing and need an augmented reality fiction to check for line of site issued when I set up out on the road. The web site shows the SATs I need but the android app does not. In fact it has no section for multi LNBs like the web page. Disappointing. I spent $20 for nothing.
Great Installation Tool This is great for taking line of sight pictures. If there is blockage, it will show a red dot where the satellite is located. You can then take a picture to show to anyone who doubts you. It is off a few degrees sometimes, but that is related to the handset. It also doesn't work well on metal roofs. Again, that is likely hardware related.
