ISS Locator uses your current location to determine when the International Space Station will pass over. The magnetometer is used to indicate which direction to look. The gyroscope is used to indicate the altitude on the horizon where the ISS will appear. A countdown lets you know exactly when the sighting will begin as well as how long it will last. Sightings can added to the calendar and an email describing the sighting can be sent to a friend.

ISS Locator is a great educational tool and a lot of fun to use.

    Seems to get most things right except the timeframe. Maybe it is confused about the location.

    This thing just sits there and does nothing but try to find my location, acts like it has no GPS connection. Occasionally, when it feels like it, location will be found and it will work for a bit but after a few days back to "Obtaining Location" status. My Samsung Tab 2 10.1 has all location methods enabled and works fine with other apps using GPS/WiFi location data. Fix this and I would rate it

    Not enough information displayed if there's nothing in your area. ISS is overhead UK a lot whether you can see it or not but this app just don't give up anything.

    This is a great app. It tells you where the space station is at times.
