Glad it's being so well used.

I'm the new custodian of the code and we've got Juan Ranuarez to thank 
for the idea and original code-base.

WRT landscape mode, that's already being worked on. It uses the built in 
sensors to detect the rotation.

Take a look at the Roadmap on the site: 

It's going to remain free for a while, but we've got plans to use it to 
raise funds for the AMSAT-UK Satellite Building Fund, which has 
contributed to many of the AMSAT/ARISS projects worldwide.

Please try it out with AO-10/40 to see what an elliptical orbit looks 
like. (It may take a couple of seconds longer than normal due to the 
complexity of the algorithm).

Any feedback to hamsatdroid at g4dpz.me.uk will be appreciated and
