Creative Intersection Pty Ltd
Track the countdown of the ROSAT satellite reentry and be notified of changes/news even if the app is not running.

When the recent UARS satellite de-orbited, many enthusiasts relied on popular satellite tracking websites for information.

Unfortunately, these sites couldn't keep up and so most were left in the dark until well after news reports started to come through.

Our unique service consists of distributed, high-speed servers that can feed millions of small updates to iPhones/iPads without choking.

Our ROSAT Tracking HQ manually monitors multiple sources, including US Military tracking feeds to estimate the reentry time with increasing accuracy as the time approaches.

Every time the estimate changes, we feed it to the ROSAT Re-entry App so you'll know when to LOOK UP!!!!

Benefits and features:

* Bypass choked public satellite tracking servers.
* Receive re-entry estimates directly to your iPhone or iPad (updated every minute).
* Receive news and notifications as they happen (push notifications).
* Follow Twitter feeds about ROSAT (updated every 5 seconds).

Note: Push notifications do not work if the app is already running - just look at the news feed in the app for that.

Remember: We regularly consult with a number of external data sources to try to predict the re-entry time, however we cannot guarantee the accuracy of our predictions beyond the best intent.
Our verdict: Ok
  • = ROSAT has no ratings yet.
  • + The app is currently free, instead of its regular price of $0.99.
