PrediSat is ready for translations! Google Translate isn't quite good enough (I've tried), so I need human translators.
If you would like to help, translation is crowdsourced at http://getlocalization.com/predisat
If for any reason you can't or don't want to use Get Localization, you can always email me.
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.

This is a great app for ham operators working sats. I use it constantly to keep track of ISS passes when mobile.KE5JPS
Very useful tool for quick & easy access to Satpass & Iridium Flare data (Ver 1.0.5.) FC bug now fixed.
Repeatedly closing as soon a the app is launched. Hoping for an update because it's got potential.
Pretty good app.
Great, I just wish it showed ISS sightings for further than only 24 hours.
Ronnie, Cool app at your finger tips. Works well on a DroidX
Working again thank you X8 2.1
Was a 5 star, now after update, it keep force close, not even start. HTC HERO 2.1

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.
