TRANSLATIONS:
PrediSat is ready for translations! Google Translate isn't quite good enough (I've tried), so I need human translators.

PROBLEMS OR SUGGESTIONS:
Please email me or submit the problem or suggestion at http://tracker.pilot51.com. Usually Google Play comments or even Android crash reports don't tell me everything I need to know to fix it and there is no way for me to reply to either to ask for more details.

I love this app! My son loves to give a countdown...5, 4, 3, 2, 1... then a flare appears in the sky exactly where the program says.
