From the developers of famous astronomical app Star Walk, winner of the Apple Design Award 2010, loved by more than 10 million users around the world.
Ever wanted to observe the International Space Station crossing your sky or find out where man-made satellites are right now? With Satellite Tracker you can easily find out where satellites can be seen from different locations in the world and get predictions for their passes. This app was made specifically for easy and comfortable real-time satellite tracking.
• Tracking satellites in real time
• The most outstanding satellites with core info
• Satellite flyby timer
• Pass predictions
• Hand-picked passes
• The ability to set any location
• Fly-with-satellite view
• Satellite orbit over Earth
How to use the app?
► Select any satellite from the list and see its current location in the sky in real time or track satellite live orbiting Earth. Don’t miss the satellites as they pass over your location - use flyby timer and see how much time left before the next flyby.
► Get precise predictions when satellites will be visible in the sky above your location. The alert will let you know that in a few minutes the ISS or other satellite will start moving across the sky - open the app and follow the directions. The list of passes allows you to set any alert (one or more) for the satellite's pass that you’d like to witness.
► Choose fly-with-satellite view and enjoy the 3D image of the satellite flying over Earth with the real speed and location. While flying explore the detailed 3D model of the satellite.
► Want to find satellites in the sky in real time by yourself? Follow the special pointer and see the light of the flying satellite over your location.
► Choose either to determine your location automatically, set it manually from the list or enter the coordinates. Your location is marked with a pin on Earth so you can see where you are in relation to the moving satellite.
If you are a lover of science or astronomy, you will have great fun tracking satellites with this app. This is also a great activity for kids.

Most of us lose 99 cents in a couch cushion in a day. It's cheap. 99 cents for like 3 months I think and it's easy to cancel. This developer is doing us a solid. I also like that it's not complicated. It has to be simple so the average person can enjoy it. For the more advanced science nerds out there, there are bigger better more appropriate tools. This is for the novice. I don't want to be a rocket scientist, just a casual user to have simple fun with. There needs to be more satellites though. One new one per month or something. It's fun to see a satellite then open a tab and google and learn its history and stuff. What would be REALLY cool is to have a live forum for the ap users to chat with while seeing the satellite travel across the sky! Link users and satellites. It would be cool to know when a person "sees" what I'm seeing in real time 400 miles alway. More user interaction...more of a collective experience. Also, maybe integrate the live camera feeds for iss into the page so you can track and watch....I have a stupid powerful laser and I'm dying to see if I can see a tiny green dot on the camera if I shine it up there. Boy wouldn't that pizz off the flat earthers if you could see it live on camera in orbit!

Only 15 Sats & Unsubscribing Near Impossible
After trying the trial version and being disappointed that I could only evaluate it with the ISS, I purchased a subscription because the price seemed so reasonable. Once I saw the subscription had only 15 satellites, I immediately tried to unsubscribe. As many others have pointed out in negative reviews, unsubscribing is nearly impossible. I experienced the exact same thing others did which is that the "unsubscribe" link in the app is broken and takes you no where. While I do not believe this app is intended to be a scam, the broken unsubscribe link IMMEDIATELY makes me suspicious. I had to spend 10 minutes googling to figure out how to forcibly unsubscribe by going deep into the iPhone Settings app. This is really a shame because with one exception, the design and functionality of the app itself seems pretty good. The only annoying thing about functionality (other than only tracking 15 satellites) is that you cannot zoom in on the globe to see precisely where the satellite is passing over. You can only see the whole global from space and get a rough visual idea of where it passes over. If the app had warned me ahead of time that subscribing only gives me 15 satellites AND if the "unsubscribe" button worked so it didn't give the impression of being a scam, I would have rated this app 4 out of 5 stars. Those two things would have saved me and many others a great deal of frustration. I do not recommend this app at all.

We are sorry for the inconvenience with the app. Please let us know about the problem with unsubscribing at email@example.com. We will try to fix it.
great application ruined by bully marketing gimmicks
Dangle carrots in front of hungry horses. Nice program although the software industry needs to get the hell out of my face. I pay for my operating systems and I’m sick and tired of the marketing gimmicks that theses competing companies bomb and clutter our daily use of our devices. Thus company related to this great application in the way they choose to deliver it they are guilty of false advertisement and should be held accountable for wasting people’s time along with all the other companies cramming thus stuff in our faces. Because of it I will never pay them a penny for this application , great application but crummy business ethics:! I hope this helped
