ISS Detector Satellite Tracker

I know you look up into the night sky too and think, damn, what if I had gone to Space Camp? An app can't send you on the Vomit Comet, but it CAN alert you when to look up at Really Cool Stuff passing just overhead. RunaR's ISS Detector alerts your phone whenever the International Space Station and Iridium flares are visible. Tell me that isn't the coolest app idea you've ever heard. Go on, tell me (nerd).
The International Space Station is visible to the naked eye, but only for precious fleeting seconds at a time - you've got to know when and where to look. The app takes care of that for you, proffering a constantly updated calendar with upcoming astral events so that you can plan that middle-of-nowhere camping trip accordingly. It'll even check the weather conditions, since clear skies are most conducive to nighttime geekery.
Your location and timezone are automatically detected - no manual adjustments necessary. If you're a big nerd, you can port the upcoming events into your calendar app; if you're an even bigger nerd, you can post about them on your social media of choice.
If you shell out for the extensions, you can also detect and be alerted of the positions of radio amateur satellites, comets and planets, and famous objects like Hubble, X-37B, Fitsat, and Tiangong.
My inner dweeb is beyond excited for her first upcoming sighting using RunaR's ISS Detector.

Have you seen the International Space Station? Or the Chinese space station Tiangong 2? They are visible with the naked eye!
This is the easiest way to spot the station.
ISS Detector will tell you when and where to look for the International Space Station or Iridium flares. You get an alarm a few minutes before a pass. You will never miss a pass of the International Space Station and you will never miss the bright flashes of the iridium communication satellites. ISS Detector will also check if the weather conditions are right. A clear sky is perfect for spotting.
Extensions will enhance the functionality of ISS Detector. With an in-app purchase you can add comets and planets, amateur radio satellites and famous objects, like the Hubble space telescope or the Chinese space station Tiangong.
Available Extensions (in-app purchase):
Radio Amateur Satellites
HAM radio satellite tracking
Track dozens of ham and weather satellites. Includes radio frequencies and Doppler shifts for most satellites.
Track Hubble, X-37B, Fitsat and more
Comets and Planets
Find the planets in the sky. And track comets as they come closer to earth.
ISS Detector combines data from Space-track.org, SATNOGS, Heavens-above.com, minorplanetcenter.net and weather from yr.no.
