PROBLEMS OR SUGGESTIONS:
Please email me or submit the problem or suggestion at http://tracker.pilot51.com. Usually Google Play comments or even Android crash reports don't tell me everything I need to know to fix it and there is no way for me to reply to either to ask for more details.

User reviews of PrediSat
This is the satellite app that I've been waiting for. Works just like Heavens-Above.com. Runs smoothly on my HTC Evo. I wish there was a "white background" option instead of only black, but this is a minor issue. I look forward to purchasing the ad-free version.

Very good Data fetched is accurate and it shows a lists of upcoming flares that is easy to look at. The minimal GUI makes it a very light weight app and hence minimal memory usage. Please keep it that way!

BS Does nothing! POS does not work. Galaxy Note 2 on Verizon Developer: it finds your location but when selecting passes or flares it crashes. Also avast security warns it as a privacy risk.
