Hi all,
We are looking for beta testers for our new Heavens-Above Android app.

A few features of the app:
- Spacecraft visibility predictions based on current GPS location
- Visibility calculations are done on the device, so you only need to go
online once every few days to update the list of orbital elements
- Works on phones and tablets
- Live Sky Chart, which shows all currently visible satellites
- Prediction of Iridium flares

There will be two versions of the app, one will be free of charge and will
include advertisements, the other will be a paid for version without ads.
The price is still to be determined.

To participate, just send me an email from your google mail account (or let
me know the name of your Google account) and I will add you to the
Heavens-Above testers community. You will then receive an invitation with
further instructions on how to download and install the test version of the
app. The first official release will be available to all for download from
the Google play web site.

We have also set up a forum on the Heavens-Above site;
