Sell the app or a subscription, not both!

Takes a while to master

It takes a while to master but is useful for public service events.

Great app!

I’ve used this app for almost 5 years. I think I had one issue over that time and the developer had that fixed in less than 24 hours and he is the one that found the problem. I have no complaints as this is a great app! de KA5MTE

Nice app!

I enjoy the app. I suppose having a dedicated monitor would be best, but APRS.FI will fill the void.

Support For Yaesu FTM-200 Needed

Both website and app do not ID the Yaesu FTM-200 as a rig. Furthermore, the beacon text always displays a “_2” at the end. Other than that, minor bug fixes are needed. The app occasionally will not refresh once closed.

Excellent app for iPad and iPhone

I’ve been a user of APRS since the early days over 20 years ago. I’ve used many apps but this is the best! Plus it supports aprs.fi which is integral to the entire APRS infrastructure. My only wish is that I could set the opening map to a chosen spot. Maybe there is a way to do it that I haven’t figured out. Anyway, great app! 73 de N5CSU

Great HAM App

This is a great amateur radio application I use so my family can track my status when I hike.

Awesome App!

This app is a very reliable way to participate in the APRS Network. Keep up the good work!😊👍

Saved me in a pinch!

Needed APRS for an event last minute but recently switched to iPhone. Luckily this app connected right up to my Mobilinkd TNC3. Much easier to configure than APRSdroid too. Would love to see cached maps as many of the events I volunteer for are in areas with no cell or Wi-Fi coverage. Would also like to be able to change my nickname without creating a new account on aprs.fi. It might just be me, but when tracking a station I can’t seem to reset the map to show me everything around me again without restarting the app.
