Was crashing..

2
July 11 2019 update The app has started crashing continuously. I deleted the app and re downloaded, it seems to work now. The unfortunate thing is that now I have to find and download ephemeris data that I previously had. I really like the application. I really wish it had an altitude imput though. I'm a pilot and sometimes the viewing angles are a little bit off. I think that's due to my height above the surface. Also, I can't get the X-37 to show a customized icon. I thought it used to have one but not I just see a generic satellite.

Desperately In Need of Update

To the developer - don’t ever forget about your customers we are your source of existence. One of my most frequently used apps but has effectively been abandoned by the developer. One year without an update and a notification system that barely functions. When the notifications do work, they’re very helpful. Unfortunately it’s gotten to the point where they only work about 10% of the time (and that’s being generous).

Two Thumps Up

I’ve been an amateur tracker for a couple of decades now and have used some great applications over the years, including Traksat and WinTrak. GoSatWatch ranks right at the top of my list. Always accurate, great GUI options and have never had any bug issues. I like that I can point to the TLEs that I’m interested in. Well done and “professional grade.”

Great visualization tool!!

I absolutely love this app. I use this often to explain the way satellites orbit the Earth and how crowded space is actually getting. Even though the icons aren’t to scale when zooming, the point gets across. I look forward to continuing to use this app into the future and any possible improvements that may come. The ability to add you own element sets was the key feature for me. Connecting with celesteack or space-track.org for up to date sets is a great feature.

Why don't you look up sometime?

I've been using an app like this since the Palm Pilot days, and grabbed this app years ago when it first hit the App Store. The dev has been great in keeping it updated and adding features. It's super easy to use and contains a lot of detailed information. No one looks up anymore :( We're all staring down at our devices, but missing a great show up above. I'm lucky enough to still have a dark sky, and whenever I show off this app to people they totally love it! Seeing a long bright pass of the ISS is a real treat and many people had no idea you see this on a routine basis.

Problem after last update

1
The latest update stays stuck on "CALCULATING" and won't give me any passes. I laid my phone down and walked away for 10 minutes and still no data. The sister app GoISSWatch is similarly setup and I love it.
