Ratings and ReviewsSee All
Yes, I bought it without reading the previous review. Nothing has been fixed. Waste of money, seems more like a scam.
US Repeaters section doesn't work; that web site has gone away. EZ Satellites doesn't work as showen above, that web site will give anonymous users a listing of date,time,altitude, and azimuth for a given satellite but not graphics. The call book section has been unreliable; sometimes it reads 404 not found and sometimes it will return the data. The UTC time at the top is helpful.
It seems as though they've just linked some web pages together for this app. Nothing has been formatted for the iPhone, and you have to scroll around a lot to view the data. You cannot expand, or zoom in or out on the pages either. Some of the print is very difficult to read. It's a neat idea, but it is not implemented very well.
