[amsat-bb] Satellite and/or tracking apps for smart phones

Hi all

  I'm changing cell phone carriers and I can choose either an Android phone
or an iPhone as my next smartphone.

  I haven't decided which phone yet, but I'd like to know which
satellite-related apps other operators are using on both types of phones.
Are there any apps for satellites other than for tracking? (I'm interested
in tracking satellites too, of course).

  So I'm looking for recommendations and ones to stay away from.  Any
particular features to look for in these apps, or any bug-a-boos to avoid,
especially when installing an app?

  Reply to my email, N4HF at AMSAT.ORG, or to the BB (since others might be
interested too), although I don't want to be "blamed" for starting one of
those threads that seems to run on forever. :-)  If there are any websites
which discuss satellite (tracking) software apps specific to smartphones,
that would be great!

Thanks. Gracias. Merci. Danke. Efxaristo. Spasibo, Obrigado
