Two Thumps Up

Jeff L in TX's Review of Gosatwatch Satellite Tracking

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!!

Christenson C's Review of Gosatwatch Satellite Tracking

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.

Too expensive

This app is good, but too expensive. It's lacking some basic features. Look at Vito Technologies apps, they look feel and behave better and the price point is better.

Bad update. Still. UPDATED

Update: Maybe it was iOS7 or 7.1, because I haven't been using the program much because of the orientation problems, but the good ol' program IS BACK! It's great again. The program just makes too much sense for its own good. Yay! :) The latest version broke a lot of things mostly associated with iPad orientation. I wouldn't buy this version. Wait for an update. The program was really good before this one. Version 3.2 still has the same orientation problems.

Too Much Fun

It's hard to spend $10 on an app that's really unnecessary, but this one's worth it if you can get out of town once in a while. With GoSatWatch and a dark sky, you will be amazed. Civilization's not all bad!

Awesome!!

This is by far the best satellite tracking app I have ever used.

App needs lots of polish

spizo's Review of Gosatwatch Satellite Tracking

Reviewed on 12/29/18 1:08 PM

This app is basically good but it needs a lot of fine tuning. It does a great job of calculating passes accurately and showing only what you want to see. But has enough flaws that it's more frustrating to use than it should be. First it uses excessive CPU. The phone gets really hot while it's in use and the battery drain is immense. Second alerts don't really work. They will be haphazard sometimes but many times they are simply missed. It downloads keplerian data each time the app is opened. That's not necessary at all. It recalculates all passes for the day each time the passes screen is opened. It asks for compass calibration every time the app is launched even if the feature is not used. The tap targets for many buttons are very small and they do not register well. You can't reliably move from one day to the next in the passes view.

Great!

This is a very well-crafted and highly functional app! Really needs the freqs for working the birds, though. Would make it stellar.

Well designed app

Reviewed on 12/29/18 1:08 PM

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.
