Ratings and Reviews
Very nice, but need daylight pass option
Very nice app, and the last one I needed to complete my move from Palm T|X, except:
There needs to be an option to find passes at all times (24hr). This is necessary for Amateur Radio Sats (HAM) (and also for those who like to find ISS via telescope in daylight). So far as I can tell, only the Satellite Radio (Sirius, XM) sats show up during daylight.
Also, a couple of thought for the "it would be nice if..." category:
1 - Ability to animate tracking between two times. I know it can be done manually through the clever "clock face", but it's nice to have it run itself, at perhaps 1x, 2x, and faster.
2 - Ability to zoom in on map. The portrait mode is closer, which is nice, but I'd like a 2x option.
3 - Next pass prediction for a particular sat. Again, unless I missed, it'd be nice to have it jump ahead in time to the next pass (visible or all).
Otherwise, this is a VERY nice implementation of a sat tracker and VERY much appreciate one finally being offered in the store! Except for the daylight pass complaint, I would easily rate it 5 star.
Two Thumps Up
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.”
Keps not updating!
Since installing iOS 11, the app doesn’t fully load and it appears that the Keps aren’t updating 😕 Help!!!
Developer Response ,
Yes we've had a few reports of this now with the iOS 11 update. A work around is to switch to another tab and return the passes list. Working on an update to address this as soon as possible. Please contact gosatwatch_support @ gosoftworks.com if you still see problems after the iOS 11 update.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
