Ratings and Reviews
Useful but overdesigned.
The sci-fi interface impedes the app’s primary purpose of providing simple, useful information. Launch times are given countdown-style (27 days, 16 hours and 42 minutes) instead of easily understandable date/time: why not give users the option to toggle between countdown and clock time? If the time now is 8:33am, and the launch countdown says, ‘00:00:0037’, why does the user have to mentally translate the countdown into a launch time of 9:10?
Also, there’s no way to transfer a countdown value of “15:22:0019” to iCalendar to set a reminder alarm. If the app provides its own reminder alarms, it’s not readily evident.
Frankly, a simple list display of dates, times, rocket type and payload type, would be much simpler to program, easier to understand, and consume the least iPhone memory & battery resources. I rate this app clever and useful, but seriously handicapped by the fact that the authors spent a lot of time inventing a confusing, science fiction-like interface at the expense of adding helpful features.
I like the app, just wish it would have some better functionality. There is an internet website version of this app that was around before they made this one. What I like about that one, and this is only my preference, is it shows the seconds in the countdown. This app only shows days, hours, minutes. Whats fun about watching launches is knowing when it’s T-minus 10 seconds especially when you don’t live by the space center. I live about 50 miles away and can’t always get to the coast to watch. Second issue and this is common with all these type of apps, it that the countdown is always off by about 10-15 seconds. Used it for multiple launches and as the countdown on the app approaches 12, 11, 10, 9. Etc. there is the rocket already in the sky heading to orbit! Contacted developers repeatedly, but like all of you here writing reviews, all go unanswered and no fixes ever.
Needs a few tweaks but this app is WAY overdue
Super excited to have something like this now readily available in the palm of your hand to give the basic information on current launches and near future launches. This app is great for locals who forget about all that goes on AND for tourists who have come to the area just to see a launch. I would suggest being able to bring up the tutorial again as there are a lot of cool features this app offers and most people (me!) don’t always spend the time to read through all the features and guides in the first go around and so far I have been unable to pull the intro back up. I also agree with some of the other reviews that it would be nice to expand on the information for each rocket. There are so many cool fun facts it would be easy to integrate in. Thanks to whoever made this app happen!
