I use HamSatHD with mixed results. I don't quite trust the keps used, but lately I have had good luck. I especially like the graphic it displays for the pass. I often set my iPad on the ground or a nearby elevated surface, orient with the pass an just follow it along. One thing that I have noticed is that my iPad isn't always in sync with the actual time so I have to be sure that real time and iPad time are the same. A few minutes make a big difference.

Another advantage of the iPad is I have successfully downloaded an ArisSat SSTV image directly to the app, SSTV, for the iPad. There are also recording capable apps that I have used to record passes. Both of these examples are when NOT using the HamSatHD app. One app at a time.

If you have Internet access you can also visit Heavens-Above to get pass information or to compare the keps with HamSatHD.
