iOS iPhone Utilities
PLEASE NOTE: This version has reached "end of life" and no further updates will be made. There is a new version - "Satellite Tracker Plus3" - that runs on both the iPhone and iPad as well as providing additional functionality.
This version can be used to provide an insight into the basic functionality of that program but is limited to running as an iPhone oriented application.
Track satellites as they pass over your location. This application allows you to select any number of satellites and will show the track through the sky of the next pass(es) of each over your location. Frequency information can be added so you know how to tune into the signals. The satellite information is downloaded via the internet, and the iPhone GPS can be used to automatically track your location. Options allow the display of the sun and moon locations and the angle of the iPhone/iPod Touch to indicate to guide where to point your antenna. This application is primarily intended for those who use the Amateur Radio satellites but weather and other satellites can also be tracked.
- new TLE storage files (NB: the program will request to update the TLE files after upgrade to set up the new TLE storage)
- the new TLE storage overcomes problems picking up new and deleted satellites
- several minor calculation problems
