[amsat-bb] Is there satellite tracking software for smart phones?

Can anyone recommend a satellite app for Android phones? Preferably
something that shows where the satellite is above the horizon.

SkEye looks promising. I think that if I Velcroed my phone to the boom of
my Arrow antenna, the app would give me realtime feedback of where to point
the antenna. People use the app for pointing telescopes. That would be
greater precision than what I need.

The SkEye website says almost nothing about satellite tracking. From what I
can discern this function only exists in the paid version. ($6)

(This is the third time that I have tried to send this message. Maybe if I
put my callsign in, it will be accepted)
