I just wanted to plug this since I searched and didn't see any references to it in this forum.
I downloaded GoSatWatch for iPhone and LOVE it. Being new to satellites it tracks any bird accurately in the sky live. There is a world mode where you can switch between birds and rotate the earth, zoom, etc. there is a sky mode where you can point your phone at the sky and know exactly where to point your beam.  You can also advance time easily to watch the orbits.  I also love the alerts...I get a pop up telling me to get to my shack cuz my favorite satellite is 15 minutes away Wink
I paid $10 and I am very cheap and don't usually buy apps, but this was highly recommended by a buddy.

I agree. GoSatWatch is amazing. There is a lot more activity on other forums ('Zed) and Facebook (AMSAT North America) if you wanna discuss more topics.
