I worked for Dish Network as an Installation Tech for a little over 2 years. This is the EXACT same app that was preloaded on our company issues Galaxy Note smartphones. When I say EXACT I mean EXACT. It works like a charm. Because I live in a small south Texas town 65 miles south of Houston I was a Remote Tech. Although I no longer work for Dish folks here in town still call on me from time-to-time to help adjust their Dish or set it up when they move or go to deer camp, this is the app I use. It's worth the 1 time $19.99 fee.
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 does not work properly on the new Nexus phone, this phone has its sensor mounted in reverse landscape and Dishpointer Pro has not fixed this. I contacted support several times to ask for an update but there is no reply. Is Dishpointer Pro still in business or just collecting cash with no more service...
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.
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.
