Nice. Written by the folks at SkySafari, I assume? :-)

For android there's a free app Where is Io that plots the Galilean moon's path over the next 72 hours. It doesn't calculate for GRS and transits though.

I used the JupiterMoons app last night and it was very handy. Perhaps next up we can have a little 99 cent app for the minima of Algol?
