    So before, you used to be able to see the entire earth and scroll around to see the satellites in the sky. Now you CAN’T! Please fix this. You can only get a view from only where you stand and you have to move your phone around to find stuff. Very annoying. All there was is a simple button that changed from a personal view to an earth view. The button is gone! Please update it and add it back!!!
  • They ruined a great app

    Before the changes they made recently this was a cool app now it is the ugly twin of Skyview. It used to be a view looking at the earth so you could see any object circling earth with earth as the background, you could use your fingers and move the earth to find any object. Now the view is from the earth to the sky just like SkyView and you have to move your body around and point your phone to the sky to find the object you want to locate, that is stupid. Whoever first programmed this app a few years ago when I bought it was a genius. Whoever updated it recently is an idiot. Give me back the Satellite View I purchased not this SkyView clown I mean clone!
  • Wow- abysmal...

    What happened? No longer do I have a view of the earth , showing the map of the satellites and their paths across its view. This renders this app nearly useless. Just frustrating now. That’s all it is. One single essential button now missing. Perhaps it is only a bug affecting SE iPhones... if that is the case I can only pray you do an patch that resolves it. If it is a new “feature “ then the app is no longer of any use.
  • Not good

    Latest update turns what was an easy to use app into a difficult to use app. Right out of apples’ playbook. Just what is wrong with simplicity and ease of use? Can’t give it the “no stars” it deserves, have to give it one star. Male bovine feces.

    Would you PLEASE let the app use the last current location when opening? Why do I have to use location services every time?? What’s the big deal? PLEASE!!!!! FIX!!!!! Thank you!!

    Does exactly what I needed. Two things though. One is that the search doesn’t seem to bring up the satellite I’m interested in. If I find it by category and then type the exact name in, search doesn’t find it. The other, would be nice for a future release, would be if the user could enter a two line element set for an object not in the database.
  • Search Function Broken

    Try to search for Satellites that I know are in the database, but the app says "no results". For example with the Saudisat satellites: type "Saudi" into the search bar, and you get "no results". However Saudisat SO-50 is in the database, you just have to browse through all the categories of Satellites until you find it; but you can't find it using the search tool. This is a serious impediment to using this app. Try searching for ISS or Zarya, and you get "no results". This would be a 10 star app if the search function worked.

    Please update. This used to be an awesome app when it worked.
  • Doesn’t see everything

    I wanted an app which allows me to point at a satellite moving overhead and have the app ID what I see. It doesn’t. You have to go through every category and guess what it is. If I can see it, it should be able to be seen in the “Brightest” category. I like the augmented reality. But if I can see it, it should be visible.
