We really enjoyed our team visit to the +Irish Military War Museum  this morning. 

An unbelievable collection of World War related artefacts ranging from tanks to medals. Well worth a visit!

There is an update available for all beta users. This update has some significant improvements.

Use this link to switch on the beta: https://play.google.com/apps/testing/com.runar.issdetector

All satellite passes are calculated on the device. It used to be downloaded from http://heavens-above.com. It the past this could give some instability when http://heavens-above.com made changes to the server or when there was a period of high traffic.

From now on all passes and magnitudes are calculated on the phone. Also the accuracy of the passes on the map and radar has increased.

There are several changes that makes updating the passes much quicker. 

New features include an eye-icon to show which passes are visible. The size of the icon is linked to the magnitude of the pass.
An track on the radar with Iridium passes. A dotted line is there to show where the satellite is before and after the flare.
The ground track during the selected pass is now drawn on the map. A yellow line should be visible.

Update in the app in Google Play to version 2.00.50. If you encounter some bugs, let me know. If you encounter a crash, click the report button. I can read the crash report in the developer console.

On Link Bubble's price

A few quick thoughts for those seemingly disappointed by Link Bubble Pro's $4.99 price:
* I am not a multi-billion dollar company like Google or Facebook that provides free services in exchange for data that can sold to advertisers. Nor am I part of a company that has raised millions through venture capital. 
* Like you, I need a salary to survive. I have a family, mortgage, need to eat, and all that mundane stuff. Writing apps and selling them on the Play Store is my full time job, and my means of earning this salary.
* I decided long ago to launch at $4.99. Link Bubble's price was not affected at all by my applying for a patent on the app. I'm not 'passing the entire cost down to the consumer'. Instead, applying for the patent meant I'm deferring the point where Link Bubble becomes a positive earner (assuming it sells enough to recoup of course).
* I'm not begging for money out front of a homeless shelter. I'm trying to build applications that people who already own expensive smartphones and/or tablets are excited to use and hopefully buy.
* I feel like Link Bubble is as innovative as something you might expect from a team at Google or Facebook. I feel like a conversation could be had that Link Bubble does more to further the Android experience than most apps I've seen. Link Bubble saves me minutes a day, every day. Is it so unreasonable that such innovation would be rewarded with a sub-$5 price? (again, keeping in mind I don't use your usage habits to further an advertising empire)
* Link Bubble has launched with a free component that enables you to evaluate whether the app suits your needs and is something you deem worthy of buying.
* Frankly, I feel like Link Bubble is worth more than $4.99. Desktop utilities routinely cost $20+. But this is the price I've settled on as something a majority are willing to accept for a mobile app.
* I continue to feel that by and large, good apps represent tremendous value for money: https://plus.google.com/+ChrisLacy/posts/YAEA1VHHVpk
* I don't have any plans to put the Pro version on sale.
* When you buy my apps, you support me, and enable me to both make my existing apps better and write new ones.
* As a consumer of apps myself, I really think it's worth thinking on the point raised in the tweet below. 

To those that have supported me and purchased Link Bubble Pro, I offer you my thanks. To those who think $5 is too expensive, I hope both hope you enjoy using the free version, and that in time you'll recognize the value for money I've worked so hard to create with the app :)
