I really like this app. I like stargazing & have always wondered about the satellites since I was a little kid. Now I not only know which is which, I know when they will be visible. I was able to spot the International Space Station with Space Junk Pro. No issues found using an HTC EVO 4G, Android v. 4.1.1.
I downloaded my sky juk pro into my new galaxy note4 device and all the apps run ok except sky junk the words and names of the objects couldn't be read because it's shape like white squares.. waiting for response
Worked great with my Galaxy S4. It was my go to satellite app. Now I have the Note 5 and I was getting boxes instead of text for names. It resolved itself after switching to the sky view mode (first icon on left). It loads the satellites with the correct font, and then switching back to normal mode loads normal fonts again. Awesome app, worth the twitchy font dance.
Now the app continuously runs and is top dawg on my battery usage. Autonatically starts itself even after a force stop... Please update and fix!
I like to see what satellites are over head and then look them up on the web. 8^)
Great idea...delivery sucks. If it's a simple fix on user end...post it on your info before people download it.
When I upgraded to a galaxy tab 3 it seems to have lost its access to the motion sensors. It does not rotate when switching from portrait to landscape, nor track its orientation thtough the sky. Works great on my Note 4 though.
Help: I have nothing to explain how to use this very cool app. Anyone have an helpful hint. Ed Weber
On SS3. Worked great until Nov 1-ish. I open app to a black screen of...well you know. This app is broken. I rebooted, yada yada. Nothing works. Refund?
I really like this app. Sure the compass doesn't work with my phone, but somewhere along the way I think there's a reason..? Other than that, no probs.
Working with it for a year now. Perfect for star fixes to find the correct star. Using it for sea navigation. Down size is that you van nog turn off satelite. Previous version had the option. Missing the old button to turn satellites off.
Thanks for all the work in correcting a bad app update. Wish I could give ten times as many stars. I have never dealt a better customer service!
Won't open. Keeps saying space junk has stopped working. HTC one user
Totally awesome app. I not only recommend to friends and family but to everyon who has ever wondered just whats goin on in the sky. 5stars2thumbsUp
Been using for well over a year and it's very accurate. Everything is exactly where it's shown on my phone. If you're having problems with your phone's compass search on the Internet how to calibrate it.
This is quite possibly the coolest space app you can find ! And on top of that I love being able to track the space station
Doesn't seem to work with Google's flagship nexus 6P.
Detail, perfection and very fast!
Very simple App. Not many features
Planets, satellites, stars, space junk
Decent program works ok it is worth $5 any day
It works great for me. It worked great on all my Galaxy phones.
I love this app!
It works buy it
Downloaded to new phone now there is no letters for words just white boxes. Been very patient for 3 months for you to fix. REFUND???
Love this app. Am now addicted to the heavens even more than before. Searching the satellite names online gives back - story to the little points of light that cross the sky, last night I watched a spent Russian rocket pass over that's been up there with for nearly 30 years. Marvellous stuff.
I HAVE HAD IT ON 3 DIFF PHONES INCLDING ATT S3 WITH NO PROBLEMS EVER. LOVE IT!
SGS 3 still not displaying correctly not realtime anymore
This app doesn't work for my Samsung gs4. The compass doesn't move much and the screen jumps around when I move my phone to locate something in the sky.
I gave this app 5 stars. It's much better than cats. I'd recommend it again and again.
Says " chameca, marry me" in the eastern sky tonight. Lol. Romeo must be working for sky junk pro!!
Wish the view turned better
This app is wildly inaccurate - objects are shown away (and sometimes far away) from their actual position in the sky. More of a gimmick than an aid for stargazers.
The satelites on this app track way behind where they really are. The space station went past the other night a full two or three minutes before the app said it would. Have had the same experience with other satelites.
Good to use with Heavens Above and Google Sky. It's weakness is distance of satellites. I've used it for close to 2 years and the updates have made major improvements.
