I've got AmsatDroid Free, and it's fine for seeing upcoming passes and 
has some other useful features, but it doesn't seem to provide real-time 
information on where to point my antenna during a pass. It provides AOS 
azimuth, max el, and LOS azimuth, but nothing real-time, unless I'm 
missing something.

I'll check out the other suggestions.
