It is a good app. I use web based Heavens Above Sky Chart a lot on my pc, that's very informative, most of the visible stars and satellites are identified. On the app, to identify the visible stars, you need to zoom in. It seems I wasn't zooming in enough Thank you to Heavens Above for their informative reply to my initial review.
There is some interesting data here but half the screen obscured with permanent menu containing modes/nightly events/ etc. Can't hide or resize this permanent feature and remaining 1/2 screen view of sky is too small - even on an 8 inch tablet. Redesign so menu can be made smaller or hidden would improve the app.
Wow. First sky chart that ever made sense to a noob like me! For the first time, I actually found some stars I could identify! Works great on Pixel 2.
I tried it and it works! We saw the ISS and a few satellites on the first try. This makes locating satellites super easy! I also like how you can get information on a particular satellite. I very much recommend this app!
This is the PERFECT pocket satellite finder! It will tell you when the international space station or any other satellite will be visible, notify you when it's about to come over the horizon AND draw you a star map showing its course across the sky and it's position! Let it show you a mag -7 Irridium flare and you will bless the day you downloaded this app!
If you want to check if a satellite is coming your way you go to a list (of hundreds) and tap on one, it then sends you to the next screen to show it's path. Then you go back to the list and instead of continuing from the last one, it starts back at the beginning. Please fix this devs as it's so tedious!
