In my opinion, the new v3.7 update of SkySafari Pro is one of the most significant and useful updates in a long time. SkySafari Pro will now highlight all objects in your selected Observing List on the sky display. Many thanks and major kudos to Southern Stars!

I already found a glitch!
If you want to delete an object off of the Favorites List, it crashes & closes the program. This is on iPad 2. I emailed them already.

The new observing list options are really nice. I made a list of just a few favorite artificial satellites. I generally keep satellites turned off in options to keep screen clutter down, and I'm only really interested in spotting ISS, HST, etc. But I noticed that the visible pass times are way off.

One of the menu options that was removed was the option to manually update the orbital elements since it's now automatically updated once a week. I wish the manual option was still there so I could at least eliminate that as a cause of my problem. It would be nice to get rid of my dedicated satellite watching app and just do everything in SkySafari...

Have no fear, the "Update Minor Body Orbit Data" button will be returning in the 3.7.1 release.

You bet. Maybe a week away if other distractions are held at bay.

+1 That really is a nifty new feature. Great timesaver when out in the field.

Especially useful for my "Outreach" observing list :)

Hopefully now that iOS 5 users can use Google maps again, you won't have to spend so much time giving people directions and you can roll out that new Android version here shortly... :)

Worse yet is the time spent responding to mislead Android owners... :)

It all sounds good to me... you guys to good work, I just hope your efforts are paying off.

Great! That will be just in time for me to load it on my new Google Nexus 7... :)
