Great Viewing App
Love the app! I’m an old timer that started using a program called InstaTrack back in the day. I’ve used this app for awhile now. Many people have commented on letting the display throw everything at you that is in the sky. I believe they developed this precisely to allow you command of the space object catalog without being overwhelmed. As a person becomes more comfortable with looking for objects of interest, the intuitiveness comes in with it. It can be a parlor game, or a tool for more interesting insight. As a space signal monitoring hobbyist, this is one of many tools in my go-bag.
10/10 really good
Still no Webb Telescope
The Satellite and Skyview apps are good, but major items like the Webb SPACE Telescope are missing. The App’s data must be really outdated, which is really a bummer. While Skyview is one of the best astronomy apps there is to view planets with, planets have been a round for a while. Humans launch satellites a little more frequently than planets are created, how about an update for one of the most important and significant events in astrology like including something as huge as the James Webb SPACE Telescope. It’s only been a decade or more in development, launched months ago, and now configured and tested and sending pictures back to earth. You want to fall over, then include the Web SPACE telescope and some of it’s hot new pictures. The universe is getting old, let’s do it while it’s still here :)
Very helpful!! I've being using this app around the world, sometimes still during the flight!!! Works perfectly!!!
Have had the App for a bit and just getting to really use it. Like it so far once you understand how to use it.
Why gave a three star rating, at first I was able to see the pictures of the debris now I only see the color dots for the debris and I can’t find how to set it again if that’s possible or else it would have been 5 rating
Limited Catalog of Satellites
Could be improved by increasing the catalog of Satellite data that is freely available online. Can’t find basic things like ESA Sentinel-1, 2, 3 etc.
