I bought a new Android tablet on Saturday - Version 7.0, Nougat.
AMSATDroid seems to work fine on it, other than displaying the date as
"000001 29, 2018"
On the tablet, I did a Google Play Store search for Heavens-Above (which
runs great on my smartphone, which is running some flavor of Android 4.x)
and Heavens-Above didn't show up in the store...which I thought "okay,
So tonight I went to the Heavens-Above website, thinking I would download
the Android app from there. Google Play Store pops up with Heavens-Above
app but I'm getting the message "Your device is not compatible with this
So, what I'm looking for - assuming that the Heavens-Above app won't be
updated - is a similar app which will run under 7.0. How about Satellite
Tracker from Tythatguy. or Satellite Tracker by Vito Technology (reading
the reviews, the latter doesn't seem to be as useful as Heavens-Above or
Tythatguy's version). Any others you might recommend?
Comments? Suggestions? Any way to make 7.0 backwardly compatible? <grin>
