Satellite Pointer

Direct your device to the sky and look in realty augmented mode at the geostationary satellites orbiting around the earth. You will have access to a list of more than 180 TV satellites with a research option capability to facilitate your search. Once a satellite has been selected, you will be able to read a number of information necessary to your installation, such as its geographical zone (region/country), its position (longitude East or West), its elevation and azimuth as calculated based on your location. You may then "lock" such satellite: this will make appear on your phone screen an arrow which will guide the direction of your device until it becomes aligned with the satellite (only available in PRO version). Moreover, in case you do not find the satellite on the satellite list you may add it manually in your application using a simple to use interface.In case your device GPS is defect, Satellite Pointer allows you to enter positioning data manually. Finally you may change various parameters of the app through its settings menu, including highly customizable display, satellites’ labels, horizon and orbit lines colors… And many more!

Settings from my dish service provider never retrieved a signal. Almost gave up. This app, especially with the VR viewer, showed me that those settings were way off for some reason and I got a signal within minutes! I didn't even need the actual numbers for finding it as I had a cheap signal finder hooked up and I just moved the dish in the area that I could see on the screen. Very helpful.

Use this for work. Only apk I can find that still works in complete dead zones, where I install satellite internet. Thank you for creating a real satellite finder! Worth every penny. It is extremely precise. I'd pay 100 dollars for the apk if I had to. Cheaper than a real incliometer. Also I double check on 3 different androids phones, and I notice that is only works as well as the devices compass works. So don't blame the apk, if you cheaped out on a fing phone.

I liked this app so much I decided to upgrade to the pro version through an in-app purchase. This was supposed to get rid of the ads and unlock more features but everything stayed the same. I tried reinstalling then I tried to contact the developer but the emails were returned as undeliverable. Google wouldn't give me a refund. If you get this just stick with the free version. They will take your money but you won't get anything in return. Live and learn.

Easy to set up and use, but I can't see the confirmation that I have paid for the pro version. Otherwise, really like it. BTW, as an English mother tongue speaker, the word 'informations' in the plural annoys me!

Jas. J. Sep 30, 2019     

I upgraded to the pro version for the extra feature but still have the base version. Reinstalled and reactivated the pro but same results. If not fixed I will be requesting a refund and leaving a bad review. Sent this email to every address I could find with no response can't believe that the overall rating is as high as it is I got absolutely nothing advertised for my 4.99. Was in a hurry and didn't read but a couple of reviews as I did later and discovered many other with the same results as I

Really helped me set up my Directv satellite dish at our RV Park. I truly believe I never would have been able to find the signal without this app (even though it took me 3 hours of trying!) Only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because of basically no directions on how to use the app. I kind of figured it out by trial & error (hence the 3 hour time frame!) But, that being said, thanks for the help Satellite Pointer app!

Poor, bought the PRO version and it was a waste of money. The software uses the magnetic compass and does not compensate the true north. Developers do not respond to this problem, refund seems not to be an option. There are free apps on google play which do a better job, for free...! Update: after one month still no repy from developers, thus.....do not buy this app ! Please add true North declination based on geographical area (gps data)

sam. a. Sep 4, 2020     

Great app, and good job. I use the Pro version. But you have to update the info on the position of the device on the dish to track the position, azimuth, and the compass. Also, the instructions on the dialogue boxes are not well aligned. The bottom lines are chopped off.

Jai. R. Nov 4, 2019     

I'm a satellite internet installer and this app helps a lot. It allows me to know, more or less, where the satellite I'm targeting is located. I like using the 'favorite' capability on the app which makes it easier to find my satellite. Haven't had any issues with it since I installed it.

Tom. D. May 28, 2019     

I bought the pro version. I like the app as it shows satellites and I can set favorites to unclutter the screen. App does provide bearings to targets but there no method or procedure to cororlate app info to pointing dish. Is there a way to place phone on dish so you can use phone display to point dish? Do you want main satelite in center of display? If not I do not see a lot of value in app. i tried to contact tech support but no reply.

App is very good and a handy addition to any satellite masters kit, but was having trouble with elevation and lnb skew not working at all but tweaked it, it may help others also having issues with align dish procedure, go into apps / settings and clear the cache and settings for the app, restarted it and all was good.

STE. S. Apr 6, 2019     

Down loaded this app on my phone works great. Cannot get it function correctly on my tablet. The settings are different and cannot get the AR View. Cannot even get the app to open. Several uninstalls downloads nothing. I am the idiot evev tried the upgrade to Pro. Until of these issues are resolved stay away.

Nic. F. Apr 15, 2019     

does exactly what it's designed to do, show you if you have line of sight to the orbitals. THIS APP WILL NOT TUNE A DISH. It simply shows you where the satellite is on the sky. it's super helpful if you know WHICH orbital (satellite) you are trying to find. I use this app everyday as a Dish Network installer

Dav. D. Sep 5, 2019     

This app is extremely useful. I'm a satellite TV installer tech, and while I use an inclinometer to find line of sight in situations where it's questionable, using this is useful for fast estimations, as well as showing customers what the line of sight looks like when they have questions. 5/5, very much worth the purchase.

Vin. Dec 13, 2018     

Attempting to get 91 and 82 failed. Geo location of satellites were off by miles. Not worth using if you want to install your dish correctly. I went back to the signal tone of my receiver and got 91 to 100% and 82 to 95% using my ears.

O. G. Nov 26, 2018     

This app is spot-on. I compared it with my actual inclinometer tool and it hits the same angles and elevations. Just need to ensure the phone is calibrated before using. The most accurate I have seen so far.

Jon. Dec 9, 2019     

All it does is calculate some basic angles and show some weird animations. To actually receive guidance you need to pay up, despite the presence of intrusive ads throughout the app.

Jus. D. Dec 19, 2019     

App Def helps locate Sat locations without having to purchase another inclinometer. I'm a satellite technician and those things get pretty expensive and break easily. App doesn't give me entirely all dish orbitals I need, but I can make it work.

Med. A. Jan 2, 2022     

The app doesn't help that much ! I purchased the pro version but there is still sexual annoying adds !!! I send an email to the developer less that 24 hours after the purchase for refund but he is not answering ! Don't waste you money not your time on that app..

Ter. D. Jun 24, 2019     

As a satellite installer..dish,direct, viasat etc this is a great app. purchased full version which is cheap compared to buying another $200 inclinometer. Also handy for verifying Los with customers who think you can install their satellite anywhere.

Cat. P. Feb 2, 2021     

Have tried other satellite locator apps, by far this is the best one I have found. It allows you to show only the satellites you want to search for. You don't have to wade through the ads to see the screen, all in all a great app.

Mik. J. Jun 8, 2019     

I installed this at the end of camping season last year and I'm out for the first time this year and I was able to get the dish set in a good spot the first time. I didn't have to move the dish 3 or 4 times before getting all the satellites tuned.

Sco. C. Dec 23, 2018     

Great app! shows satellite arc and tags visible sat's with names and elevation stats. It let's me place my Pathway 2 in the right place the first time in every campground. Haven't tried the pro version yet.

Fre. T. Apr 6, 2019     

I upgraded to the pro version of this app. I recently purchased a new phone and when I transfered the app, it went back to the free version so now I am plagued by ads. It was OK, but not that great I am going to pay for it again.

Joh. E. Jun 24, 2020     

A good starting point but meter needed for accurate location. I was confused about which angle the elevation referred to, as I could not read some of the info pages.

A. G. u. Sep 4, 2019     

Unstable app keeps moving location and reversing north / south. Doesn't keep note of location. .. troublesome and unreliable. Imo complete waste of time and money. Have now uninstalled app.

Joh. V. Jan 23, 2019     

Great for RV satellite. No more messing around when you arrive at your site... just pull up the app and see exactly where your dish needs to point! Truely amazing!

Chu. B. May 11, 2019     

I am a Field Engineer for television broadcast. I use this app for surveys and verification of look angles for our transmission needs but also have used it to adjust receive dishes for DSS for my friends, family and even my own service. A great app.

Chr. S. Apr 11, 2019     

there are not very many AR satellite Finders, but this is the one that does not seem to crash! this app is not just yet another compass and inclinometer.

Ran. D. Oct 23, 2018     

Don't buy or use this application. Ordered the PRO version and the application never gave the features advertised. Also bought the PRO version thinking it would be more consistent on the satellite position because 4 out of 5 times it had the position in the wrong place and not even close to where they should be. Emailed the vendors customer service and NO response. Depending on where you look you get different contacts and the website Google has for their application is not functional. Google would not give a refund for this vendor. Very disappointed in the vendor and Google for letting this vendor sell without being held accountable.
