SatTrack

SatTrack


This application reveals all iridium flares and satelittes (including international space station and amateur radio satellites) passing by at your location.
An auto-adjusting compass pointing in the direction of the satellite or flare helps you tracing the object.
Notifications can be enabled to warn you whenever a satellite of interest passes by.

The actual data is taken from www.heavens-above.com. They did a great job so check out their website too.
This is NOT the official www.heavens-above.com Android application although the name may suggest this.

User reviews of SatTrack
I have this app installed, but I can't update it, because the Android app market flags it as incompatible with my phone. (HTC Desire, Android 2.3.7)

Works really well on my Galaxy S. Like the way you can set an alarm for passes. Plenty of usable settings.

"Installed "Heavens Above" app & it, well, i'm not sure wheather or not it's working correctly! I will use it a few days then return with my review of the app"!

How do you select which satellites are desired? I only want a couple, not all of them.

Best of It's Kind As a free app, this works great. It does not have the augmented reality style of tracking, but the preferable compass based method. I suppose it is personal preference, but this style of tracking allows a better sense of what you can see, where you can see it, and when. It would be cool to see the navigation buttons dim or hide during "night mode", as currently, they stay lit up. (Nexus 5, 4.4.4)

Great App. My "go to" app the first app I use when I'm looking for illusive iridium flares. The compass and projected path of satellites makes it fool proof.

Gets stuck on "retrieving satellite info please wait" It does not appear that this will ever be addressed. Nexus 5.
