Best free app and still significant in 2023

first off - i never write reviews but the ISS and this app have been a part of my life for a few years now and i still get as much enjoyment out of this app as i did the very first time i used it. As a news photojournalist most of my work is in the day but this app has broken me out of a creative rut and challenged me to prepare and photograph the ISS as it traveled close by in the middle of the night. I have gotten many photographs of the space station as it streamed across the sky while in florida, delaware … wherever i may be. And the app keeps updating as i get a new iphone almost every other year. I’ve never had a problem with the app and even when i’m not on wi-fi the space station is right on schedule just as the app always lets me know -“here it comes” ❤️ Thank you for bringing a lot of joy and wonder to my life.

Best thing to do with the kids!

I am hooked on watching for the ISS. Last night we watched on the app as the ISS flew over the Pacific and crossed over the Mexican/Southern California border. We live in central KS so that was our cue. We went outside- parents, grandparents, and the kids and watched in total fascination as the ISS went shooting over our heads right on time- the most brilliant satellite you’ll ever see, almost like a comet. It was a 3 star rated view so it was awesome. We cud see it visually and map it on the app til it got to the Canadian border approximately and it faded out. A huge thumbs up for this app. And thank you that it’s free! Especially neat cuz the kids were every bit as fascinated as the next two generations! Fun to experience it together!

Love this app!

I want to thank the developer for creating this app! Great job! Our family uses it quite a bit. One of the things that brings me great joy is sharing this app and the the view of the space station with others who have never seen it. They are always in awe of the fact that they are actually seeing the space station with their own eyes without the use of binoculars or a telescope. The alarm setting to alert you when the ISS is overhead is a great feature! I can’t tell you how many times I have been talking with someone, when the alarm goes off and I tell the person I’m with to come outside so I can show them something amazing.
