Great App, request for update
Very cool, I had thought about something like this after I downloaded Star Walk. Your app is a wonderful adjunct for stargazers out here. My only requests: Make the app remember my time zone (it always defaults back when I exit the app and I have to reset the time zone data; and - I will echo the earlier request I saw - can you add ISS sighting data as well? That would make this a 5* app without a question! Thanks!!!

Matches data on website-- but it KNOWs where you are--Predict 'shooting' stars!
i have been using the Heavens-Above website for years to locate Iridium flares--'shooting' stars. This app saves having to input your location. It is fun to predict a shooting star at an outdoor, evening event. Do it, it is fun. But make sure your watch is set to the exact time--these flares only last about 5 seconds but become as bright, or brighter than a planet. I am so glad this is now an app. Keep up the good work. Do another App that shows the International Space Station and Space Shuttle passes.

Nice interface, simple to setup.
Haven't tried looking for a flare, yet, but I know Heaven's Above, and have used them to successfully view flares in the past. Nice, simple, easy to use app.
