Works exactly as described, no glitches here. Good info, great views. The live video feed works well when it’s over daylight, when it’s over night naturally it’s dark. Using pre-available satellite images when available as an alternate is a nice idea. In a future release it might be useful to be able to zoom out a bit further to give a more inclusive view of the ISS location. I’ve found the data accurate.

Great feedback! Thank you!
Provides useful and accurate information and easy to use. Thank you.
I have used this many times to view the ISS. App functions as it should and makes keeping up to date on location so easy. I like the extra information on each astronaut and adds to the enjoyment of seeing and knowledge of the specialities of the astronauts. Thanks again for providing this.

So glad you like the app and that it's helping you in viewing the ISS. Thank you for your great review and feedback!
Very interesting, fun, app, for a very senior shut-in.
I am a disabled 86-yr old whose practical “universe” is circumscribed by the walls of my rather small home. Being a life-long space buff, “orbiting” the Earth, via the ISS, gives me hours of amusement and intellectual stimulation both of which are essential for me. The narrow minds apparently reflected by some of the site’s negative reviews are to be pitied.
