There are better, and more organised apps available. It works, but... What kind of order are the satellites listed in? Why can't you type the name of a satellite to search for it instead of searching through a seemingly random list? A zoomable map would be nice: what's flying above the other side of the planet is of little concern to me. If I have to see a map of the whole planet, why not let me track multiple satellites? Like I said: it's good; it works; but it's not the best.

App is easy and simple, except for finding the satellite you want. The list is long and hard to navigate. At least put it in alpha order. A nice touch would be able to set up only the satellites you need and select from that list. Frequency and modes would be another big plus.

The app needs a better way to search for satellites. IE, if I am a amateur radio operator I might want to search by FM, linear, APRS, SSTV, wefax etc. Also, why not add push to aiming functionality? A lot of us will be using tripod or even hand held yagi antennas and being able to know we are aiming in the general direction would be great. Many in astrophotography use push to apps on Dobsonian & other alt/az mounts. KC1OCA
