A nice app!

I totally agree with the previous post...a very useful app as it is not easy knowing which moon(s) are actually visible through your telescope. The ability to change the viewing time, and thereby determine when Jupiter's Great Red Spot is visible, is very nice. The info page could be vastly improved by providing physical details and interesting facts/space mission info about each planet. Thus, 4 stars and not 5.
Works as advertised
Not much to this simple, but useful app. It's accuracy and ease of use is what we have come to expect from Software Bisque - and they did not disappoint. Want to know how to plan your viewing session so that you will get a chance at seeing Jupiter's Great Red Spot; or do you want to know which moon is transiting the planet at this very moment - or at anytime during your planned observing session? Then this app is for you. It allows customization so that the screen view can simulate, to a point, views seen though your eyepiece. It's a little gem from a fine company.
Jupiter in your pocket
This app does the job and shows details that are difficult to achieve within the more complex planetarium programs where the planets are an afterthought. Perfect for those public outreach events where viewers ask "What moon is that?". Also useful to quickly visualize an entire evening's events for shadow transits and eclipses.
